Often, that can then begin to fade as we struggle to integrate it into our daily lives. And we begin to chase after that feeling of wellbeing or magic either through drugs or various healing modalities, jumping from one to the next looking for the SHAZAM! And often we get that in the beginning. We peek behind our cultural and self-imposed limitations and see the joy that's available to us. But as we come back into "reality", we feel the loss of that joy and we begin to chase after the mystical without looking into the moment we're in.
I've often felt a tug-of-war between my healing and meditation practice, but the more I teach and practice, the more I see how much the two support each other. For me, seeing and feeling the magic of life through my healing has been very validating. I've always known there's more than what we can see. Working with beliefs and energetic blocks, and moving what no longer works has opened me to experience joy and love. The healing gives me the chance to see the immense beauty that we are, and the meditation helps me bring that into the ordinary.
I had heard many times about meditation being ordinary. I never really understood it until I began teaching. My meditation practice helps me stay with the seemingly boring. It helps me be in those moments that feel very unmagical. It helps me drop my attachment to what magic is supposed to look like, and feel that the magic that I seek is hidden inside each and every moment. And even when I can't see it, I can trust it's there. Like a blue sky hidden by clouds. It teaches me to stay with it (whatever "it" might be on that particular day) and go in. Because really, going into it is the only way through. It helps me integrate all the healing I've experienced and bring it into the everyday.
There is so much love for us to experience here on earth. And that, my friends, is all the purest of all magic. However you get there is up to you, but I invite you to be with yourself and stay.
With great love,
