As our June sequence comes to a close, just a reminder that the power of this practice was in how we used our minds. While the body and the breath move us physically through the day, it is our state of mind that makes us who we are from moment to moment.
Part of our mindstate isn't just how we think or what we think about, it is how we prepare to receive what is beyond our thinking.
We start with trust. We open our bodies. We soften to the fact that there is more than we know. That we are held beyond our understanding. That this is safe and essential. Then we receive. We can receive food or water or gifts. But also in the way of a radio antenna receives a broadcast. We receive by tuning in. Aligning ourselves. Head over heart over seat.
We use our muscles and movements to build a seat. Hold the heart high. Then we make sound. With that sound we make frequency. With frequency we imagine the sensation of light. This becomes the ball in your hand. The ball you move with only your mind. The ball becomes an arc, then a circle, then a wheel, then a sphere until you are totally surrounded by light. What is magical about this is that it is yours. You made the sound, the resonance, the frequency, the sensation of light. You felt it and magnified it and shaped it until it enfolded you.
You blessed you with your own sound, you own intention.
This ability to conjure and shape our energy can be used when we are worn out and need restoration. When we feel ill or injured and need to focus our energy to heal or repair. When a loved one is hurting. When we feel the weight or heat of a mood we would rather shift to another. The power is in our mind. And in this month we have practiced it. Let it be a reminder of your inner abilities.
Our imagination is critical to opening a possibility that something unseen exists. Call it into being. Visualize. This mental ability is how we change habits, how we dream up new recipes and paintings and yoga classes and inventions.
Keep practicing. Make it strong. Make it real. Make it yours.
