Guided Imagery for a Pandemic

Dear readers, I wonder how each of you are doing during this very strange time… My heart goes out to any of you who might be experiencing increased anxiety…

As a spiritual helper, my duty is to happy up myself, and then to shine the light of my own happiness out to you… Last night in meditation I worked hard to calm my anxieties, and this morning during spiritual study of the Ramayana, the following guided imagery arose for me to share with you…

Please take a moment to close your eyes and notice the state of your mind and heart… Then read the guided imagery out loud in a very soft, soothing voice…

Guided Imagery for a Pandemic

Settling in now to my deepest self… Watching my in-breath and my out-breath… breathing in peace… and breathing out all worries… and bringing my awareness to my heart center… imagining the Sun shining in my heart… the Sun is witnessing all of the feelings in my heart… the bright golden Sun is now dissolving any pains with its heat…

… and bringing my awareness to my mind… seeing a Fire burning brightly in the very center of my mind… the Fire is burning up all the diseases of the mind… huge, orange, glowing flames are burning all the worries, anxieties, fears, sorrows, attachments, and desires…

… a Supreme Light of goodness is now activated in my entire being… energies of deep peace and love are vibrating in all of my 37.2 trillion cells… I am now feeling sweetly connected to Everyone and Everything… and trusting that we are all on this Divine Journey together… we are all One Love Energy… shining together with the radiance of our inner suns…

… and closing my eyes for a moment to savor this experience…

My dear ones, I pray that this visualization calms and blesses you in every way…

With so much love,
StarFire Teja

Monday Morning Musings on Protection

Do you ever pray for protection, for yourself or for your loved ones? If so, how do you say those prayers, and how do you imagine they are answered?

My first musing this morning is about praying for protection, and what that really means. For example, God’s protection does not always mean protection from harm, because just look at all the terrible things that happen to people!

When we pray to God, or Spirit, or the Universe, or a Force in Nature (or however else you might conceptualize Something Greater beyond yourself), if we pray for protection only from harm, then we may find ourselves disappointed (or even devastated) when some harm comes our way. So we have to go deeper, to ask for what we might truly need in any given situation…

A while back I was feeling afraid when I was home alone one night, and I was praying for protection, and that is when I realized that deeper than asking for protection from harm is asking for protection from fear

My next musing is about what happens when we ask for protection from fear… When we are protected from fear, then even if the worst thing we imagine happens, we will be able to stay in the highest love vibration, trusting the unfolding of Life.

So if the worst thing happens, we may die, or we may survive and heal, or we may survive but be shattered and unable to heal the wound. Regardless of the outcome, if the worst thing happens, the best thing we can do is to accept it and to trust that it was meant to be as part of the unfolding of Life.

My last musing is about applying this concept to our prayers for others… Typically, when we ask for the protection of our loved ones we do so because we feel afraid of something bad happening to them. However, our worries, anxieties, and fears do not help the other people, and may even cause them harm, so again, when we pray for their protection, the deeper prayer is really about protecting them from both our fears and their own fears.

Perhaps when I pray for the protection of my two sons what actually happens is an energetic force arises from the depths of my being and shoots out like a missile into their energy fields and protects them from any potential ill effects that might be created from their Mom’s fears and worries!

So the deeper prayer would be for me to ask for them and me to be protected from all fears… and for us all to trust in the unfolding of Life.

Dear reader, can you relate to these musings?
