Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Default New Year meditation

Let's start the New Year with a centering meditation.

Breathe deeply and slowly three times.

Feel the energy of Creation gently move through your being.
Allow the energy to touch your mind, body and spirit.

Continue to breathe deeply and slowly.

Feel the energy of the chakras move up from the root and spiral through the crown chakra,

Connecting through the Higher Self to the Divine.

Allow the energy to flow through you.

Feel into Nature...
Her beauty...
Her strength...
her gentleness.

Recognize the Earth as the Mother energy...
Feel her nurturing...
Be appreciative.

Continue to breathe deeply
Allow the Divine to communicate directly with you...

Do you hear what it's telling you???

Listen carefully...

Make this New Year all you want it to be.
Love & Light,
Shirley & Terry & Buddy

Hi Shirley

This was a good meditation, just what I needed...sometimes we forgot to meditate and find the Peace and harmony, within .

Default Listening carefully...to the divine love dogs within...

The meditative reference to sitting and listening to your Divine within reminds me of my favorite Rumi poem and could be a continuation of this meditation. May we all find and listen to our divine love dogs within this year:
"Love Dogs" - Rumi

One night a man was crying,
Allah! Allah!
His lips grew sweet with the praising,
until a cynic said,
"So! I have heard you
calling out, but have you ever
gotten any response?"

The man had no answer to that.
He quit praying and fell into a confused sleep.

He dreamed he saw Khidr, the guide of souls,
in a thick, green foliage.
"Why did you stop praising?"
"Because I've never heard anything back."
"This longing
you express is the return message."

The grief you cry out from
draws you toward union.

Your pure sadness
that wants help
is the secret cup.

Listen to the moan of a dog for its master.
That whining is the connection.

There are love dogs
no one knows the names of.

Give your life
to be one of them."

May we all give our lives to be one of these nameless, Divine love dogs and find that sweet cup of inspired communication.

Namaste from the snowy Midwest,
"I wasn't going to spend my life doing what had already been done." - Georgia O'Keeffe
"May we all work to drive away the sorrow of the world. Less bullshit, more Bodhisattvas." - Sensei Irene Kaigetsu Bakker

I'm glad you are enjoying the meditation. Even taking a short break can re-energize your day.

Don't worry about goofs. I still make them. Haha!
Love & Light,

Default Yes, please, Brit!

That's a very good idea. When Shirley leads us in a meditation, it is remarkable in how it gives us the opportunities of deeply recharging our batteries, connecting with everyone in the chat, and connecting with the divine, simultaneously. I am smiling as I write this simply from remembering how good I feel afterwards.
