“O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek [...] to be loved, as to love.For it is in giving that we receive.”–excerpt from the Prayer of St. Francis
For the last two weeks during the weekly meditation we have looked at cutting the etheric bonds that drain us of energy and restoring our energy by taping into the source of all love and energy, God.
However, taping into God isn’t as effective a source of energy as you think it might be. Yes he’s giving infinite love and energy…but while God would fill you with infinite energy…you are not willing to accept infinite energy. How do I know you’re not…if you were really open to it, you would be filled with it and you’d have reached Enlightenment. I have the feeling that most Enlightened beings are not reading the blog of someone who is still trying to figure out everything for himself…no insult to my readers intended, but I think we’re all still working on ourselves, and we probably have a ways to go.
So how do we increase the amount of energy we will let ourselves take in?
The energy of the soul is an odd thing. When it is taken from you by another person it leaves you feeling drained and depressed…but when it is given freely that’s a very different story.
When you willingly and joyfully give energy to another person out of compassion and love it doesn’t drain you at all but does increase the other person’s. In fact intentionally recognizing the connection that we share with all souls helps boost your own energy.
Now theoretically you could send energy and love to every soul on the planet. And again this is what Enlightened souls try to do. However this takes balance of mind and soul which most of us haven’t quite mastered yet…and if the balance isn’t right and the intention isn’t pure, it can quickly devolve into the draining of energy. So for this week’s meditation let’s focus on only one or two people.
Now you’re probably already sending energy to the people you love at a subconscious level…but for the purposes of this mediation let’s try to make this a conscious meditation. Think about the person you care about most in the world and just as you cut cords that were draining you before attach a cord to this person and envision the energy flowing from you to them…(if you’re still a little worried about your energy being drained, first connect yourself to God, and then see yourself as a channel of that love from God to you to the person you care about). Just as with the previous weeks, I promise you will feel refreshed and more energetic and positive by doing this.
Now if the person you care about also does these meditations, it allows for a particularly positive meditation. If you both meditate at the same time and both keep channeling and receiving energy from the other you will find it has the effect of a feedback loop. As the energy goes back and forth it grows more and more powerful with almost no effort on your part.
Now if you feel very comfortable you may also want to extend your cords out to two or three people…but only do what you’re comfortable.
