AWARENESS IS THE FIRST STEP TO COMMUNING WITH THE INFINITE


Communing with the Infinite took me by surprise – it really did awaken me to new ways to feel more connection with the energy that flows throughout us all.

While I have done chakra work for years, I had only briefly worked with numerology. I have used colors to energize my chakras, but have not worked with the elements of air, fire, water and earth in a systematic way.

The reader can use what feels right to her, to make her feel more connected to the Infinite. I love how Blair offers different tools, such as visioning, journaling and being in nature, that worked for her, to bring her into the present moment, away from her story of pain (which we all have) and to find comfort in her connection to the Infinite, to the energy, the Divine spirit that is always there to inspire us.

The author said she wrote the book to help you discover your true worth, your life purpose and have the courage and guidance to pursue it. She highlights the importance of self-love as she allowed the Infinite source of love to show her how to love herself. This is the first step that all of humanity needs to take. As she writes, “The ultimate truth is ultimate love, which is all there is, because it is the Infinite.”

If you want to feel the Infinite’s presence in a way that resonates with you, in your own individual way, use this book as a map on your path.
Namaste!

JESUS BY DEEPAK CHOPRA


Deepak Chopra not only offers a fantastic read, but he also offers sage advice on transforming your life, from a Christian perspective, in his novel “Jesus.”

While many Christians may not agree with his fictional account of Jesus’ lost years before his ministry began, they can reap new insights from the Readers Guide – Jesus and the Path to Enlightenment. He writes that Jesus was the product of transformation and that he wanted others to be transformed also, giving up unloving, violent, selfish and narrow-minded attitudes and offering only love and peace to the world.

Chopra describes how all Jesus’ teaching was in service of one objective: to find the way back home, to oneness with God. Not so different than moving from the material plane, starting with the root chakra, and working our way up to oneness by opening the crown chakra. While Christianity offers prayer as a way to “transcend,” Eastern spiritual traditions offer meditation, such as used to balance our chakras. Both quiet the mind and expand it beyond everyday boundaries.

He offers a wonderful meditation on the heart chakra: Sit quietly and let your attention go to the center of your chest, focusing on your heart. Softly bring your attention back when emotions, sensations, feelings or images arise. He says hidden memories will resurface; repressed emotions will flow.  Soon the experience will shift as you contact the heart as a center of tenderness and love. As you move toward silence, the door will open to an invisible presence. The more you sit with it, the more it begins to express attributes of God, such as love and tenderness, power and strength.

Deepak Chopra’s explanation is that Jesus was teaching how to find the source of all God’s qualities inside yourself and ultimately to embody them. Working on the chakras will help you to embody these qualities… which to me, makes it in line with Christ consciousness.

Your Partner – Macho Mike or Weak Willie?


Dear Becca,

My new boyfriend Karl was very sweet and attentive on our first few dates, making me think that FINALLY I had met the one. But soon his high voice and tentative manner began to bug me. He could get his feelings hurt so easily – like when I told him to get over it when he complained that his rent controlled apartment was going coop. Other times he would practically beg me to come to bed, knowing that I had some important briefs I had to finish (not his) before the morning.

My last boyfriend was so macho and strong-willed, Karl just pales in comparison.

Becca, I don’t have to have a Val Kilmer, take-charge alpha male with a Barry White voice, of course, that would be nice, but….now I am the unsure one. Please help.
Signed, Julie in Joliet

Dear Julie,
Thanks for writing. My take on your situation is that Karl is just too feminine to fit your “macho man” needs. Maybe he wants you to wear the spurs rather than the other way around. My guess is that the men in your life, including your father, have had a preponderance of male energy and your man-puzzle is missing a few pieces with Karl. However, Karl’s foibles aside, you may need to balance your male and female energies to attract a man who will rock your world. Here are a few ways to do it:

Chant “OM” for several minutes to stimulate more male energy.

Focus on the color Blue which symbolizes the cool, logical male- visualize it, breathe it in, surround yourself with it, bathe in it, wear it out.

Sweep your hands outward from your sides toward the sky. Look up and invite the energy from above to flow into you.

Practice these energy balancing methods every day for a month and please let me know how you are doing. As always, I invite reader comment.

Namaste! Becca
