Get Your Mystic On!

A merry mirth-filled mystic lives inside your heart.

Did you know that a merry mirth-filled mystic lives inside your heart? A mystic is one who directly experiences the Divine. Depending on your religion or other cosmic belief system, you might think of your inner mystic in various ways, such as the Holy Spirit, God, Nature, or the Universe. And, depending on how you process information, you might experience your mystic through any or all of the following ways: visual images, sounds, feelings, or thoughts.

Many people assume that they should “see” guided imagery in their minds, when actually that is only one way to experience a visualization. For example, when I read or hear the following guided imagery, I do not see a visual picture in my mind, but rather I experience the images as feelings. This guided imagery is based on the wisdom of the ancient mystics of India, and it may help you to see or hear or feel your inner mystic.

Guided Imagery to Meet Your Mystic

As you are reading these words, beginning to settle in… to your inner world… and bringing your awareness to your body… just noticing any sensations in your body… and allowing your shoulders to settle down… and allowing relaxation to flow down through your whole body… and now bringing your attention to your heart center… and placing a hand on your heart… breathing love into your heart… imagining that inside your heart is a beautiful flower… a vibrant flower… inhaling the fragrance of this flower…

… and imagining that inside this flower is a bright light… this light is the size of a candle flame… and it is glowing like a billion golden suns… this golden flame is shining so bright that the flower petals are glowing… and that light is radiating out from the center of your flower… out through your heart… and into your whole body… that warm golden light is moving into all of your 37.2 trillion cells…

… focusing on that golden flame in the flower inside your heart… and feeling how that flame is your inner mystic… it is your deepest self… your highest mind… your connection with the Divine… and feeling yourself opening to the love of God (the Holy Spirit, Nature, the Universe)… receiving love from every direction… and sending love out in all directions… and feeling gratitude for this merry, mirth-filled mystic inside your heart… and knowing that you can return to connect with this flame in your heart anytime, anywhere… and returning to the outer world, feeling refreshed and energized…

 

How did it feel to read that? Please share your experience in the comments below.

In addition to simple visualizations like this, you can meet your inner mystic through regular spiritual practices, such as the ones described in the Radiance Rising section at the beginning of my new book, The Tejaswini Ramayana: The Way of Rama in the Shakahara StarFire Universes. This book is a new version of a very ancient story from India, called the Ramayana. Millions of people love this magical tale, and many read it regularly as a way to meet their inner mystic. Please order your happy copy today: The Tejaswini Ramayana: The Way of Rama in the Shakahara StarFire Universes.

May All Beings Be Elevated to the Highest Love Vibrations!
(When you feel like you love Everyone & Everything, that’s when you are in the Highest Love Vibrations.)

May All Beings Be Happy!

Applying The Tejaswini Ramayana in Your Daily Life

Recently my Mom, who is Catholic, was reading my version of the Ramayana, and one morning she said that she was struggling with some negativities, and then she thought, “I need Shiva to remind me that I’m a positive person!” She jokingly told me that the alarms should have been sounding!

In my version of the Ramayana, Lord Shiva makes a Plan for helping to keep the Avatars elevated. You see, even Divine Incarnations cannot always remember their divinity because they are in human bodies which are susceptible to great forgetfulness. Most of us regularly experience this spiritual amnesia, which is why we need frequent reminders of our divine nature. That is why I do daily spiritual practices and that is also why I work to inspire others to do spiritual practices. When we remember who we truly are, we feel happier and more positive about life.

The joke about the alarms sounding refers to a strategy that Shiva devises in my version, The Tejaswini Ramayana: The Way of Rama in the Shakahara StarFire Universes, to help keep the divine monkeys elevated. When you read this ancient tale, embellished with my touches of fantastical science fiction elements, you will see many ways that it applies to your daily life.

I very much look forward to hearing from you about how this book applies to your life!

StarFire Teja’s Guided Imagery for Highly Sensitive Persons

Are you a Highly Sensitive Person? Or do you know any Highly Sensitive Persons? You can read a list of signs of highly sensitive persons on this wonderful website called Highly Sensitive Refuge here: “21 Signs That You’re a Highly Sensitive Person.”

About 15-20% of people are Highly Sensitive Persons, “HSPs,” and Dr. Elain Aron, an HSP herself and author of the book, The Highly Sensitive Person, developed a quiz you can take to find out if you are an HSP. Take the quiz here: Highly Sensitive Test, and if you have a child who you suspect is an HSP, you can take a quiz for your child here: Highly Sensitive Child Test.

If you are not an HSP yourself, reading up on this topic (at the links above) could help you to be a blessing to someone. If you have a friend, family member, or co-worker who is an HSP, you can help to ease their burdens by simply communicating to them that you have some knowledge and understanding of how difficult life can be for them.

A few years ago, I finally took the online quiz to see if I really was an HSP, even though I already knew I was, and oh my gosh I was off-the-charts, saying yes to pretty much every question! I saw it as a handicap, as something very negative and almost debilitating. So I googled and felt uplifted by reading about all these HSPs who are learning to harness the goodness in their sensitivities so that they can thrive in the world. I also read that many HSPs feel continually assaulted by being in the world, which is something I can very much relate to. Even as I am typing this blog, my nervous system is very rattled because some work is being done on our block that it is shaking the house, and that is making it difficult for me to think clearly.

HSPs are extremely sensitive to pretty much everything in their environment, which pretty much makes everything feel challenging! For me, it seems to be getting worse as I get older. To be honest, I have struggled very much for the past ten years with trying to figure out how to make life in the earthly realm more bearable. Today is my 49th Birthday, and I share the same birthday as Oprah and Mooji. I am so inspired by all the great work they are doing in the world, and I really deeply yearn to be like them and to shine my big fire out into the world. I haven’t yet figured out how to do that, but I keep trying. I can’t help but say, “It’s my birthday and I’ll cry if I want to,” but actually I don’t really want to cry! HSP’s tend to cry very easily, and that has been a problem for me ever since I was a young child. Sometimes I cannot get control over the crying and it completely exhausts my system. If you are an HSP, you can probably relate to that.

As I said, I don’t really want to cry. What I do want is to figure out how to use my bright intelligence and beautiful sensitivities to be helpful to others. That is why I am writing these blogs, because I want to be helpful. Through my struggles to master living in this earthly realm with greater ease, I have been blessed to learn many helpful tools and practices, which I now share with others. One tool that has helped me greatly is harnessing the power of visualizations. Below I offer you some guided imagery for highly sensitive persons. May it be helpful to you or to someone you know…

May All Beings Be Free of Suffering. May All Beings Be Happy!

 

And so… beginning to settle in… and beginning to settle down… breathing down your spine… settling deeper into your mind… and deeper into the center of your being… drifting down… deeper and deeper into your center… settling in to your inner world… with effortless relaxation flowing, from your head, down to your toes… becoming more and more centered… letting things pass through… feeling how everything can just pass through… really letting things through… being centered… and open… soothing your nervous system with compassion and kindness… developing inner strengths… and imagining walking slowly through a forest… deeply inhaling the scent of pine… enjoying the vibrant green leaves… hearing birds calling to each other in the tree branches above… relaxing even more deeply now…

… and feeling how energetic sensitivity is controlled with an old-fashioned radio dial… changing the station… so, focusing on something else… letting go of identification with sensitivities… re-identifying as a very centered person… clear, good boundaries with yourself… centering… opening… changing the channel… focusing on things that feel good… warm sunshine… birds flying… flowers and trees… helping others… family and friends… singing to God… feeling goodness in the center of your being…

… and knowing that feeling overwhelmed starts in your mind… and you can change your mind… and limiting your life starts in your mind… and you can change your mind… your Deeper Mind knows that everything always works out perfectly… and from this moment forward, your conscious mind also knows that everything always works out perfectly… and your Deeper Mind also knows that you always do each thing at just the right time… and from this moment forward, your conscious mind also knows that you always do each thing at just the right time…

… listening deeply to what needs to happen when… and knowing when to stretch the edges a little… knowing you are strong, vibrant, grounded, and healthy… and you are savvy and capable… listening deeply to what needs to happen when… and accepting it when you need to pause and rest and integrate… centered, open, accepting… with great kindness towards yourself… being in love with yourself and all of Life… realizing that the Love Blueprint of your Deeper Mind is now imprinting on your conscious mind… and you are now being activated to open to the Infinite Possibilities all around you…

… releasing any old stories… and knowing that there are many ways of feeling deep connection with self and others… managing your highly sensitive nature… using these abilities to realize your highly sensitive success… emotionally healthy and resourceful… your brain can easily tap into higher vibration energies to help self and others… you are coded to be sensitive to those that need your help… establishing an energy of enthusiasm…

… activating, aligning, and accelerating your passion… embodying powerful inner and outer steps to putting yourself in a constant state of a productive, purpose-filled life… activating wisdom at the cellular level… increasing your self-love… activating the skill of managing your energy… working with your highly sensitive nature and abilities… feeling sensations neutrally as they pass through… living a fulfilling life of joy, peace, energy, and balance… thriving as yourself, living in the world… and connecting out with every star in the sky, while also feeling grounded on the earth… and placing one hand on your heart… and the other hand on your belly… feeling the warm healing energies going from your hands into your heart and belly… feeling gratitude for your strengths… and now returning to the outer world, feeling centered, refreshed, and energized…
