As we move into the rest of this holiday season, people will be filled with Good Cheer despite the fact that this has not been a very happy year. Fear is still all over the place with the uncertainty of our future, the changes anticipated and the negative lessons on the horizon. We’re all moving forward with great anxiety.
But more than at any other time of the year, now brings a tradition of Good Cheer. We expect it during the holidays. Whether it’s a little forced or put up with or genuine, many do have gratitude, a sense of peace and hearts full of love because of the season, whatever Holy Day is celebrated.
So here’s an idea. It’s a short meditation that gives us a way to take advantage of Good Cheer if we need it and automatically spread it if we have it.
Most people would love to give energy, happiness, love to others but life usually teaches us to put up walls so soul-to-soul connection has become limited. We don’t open up to others as we did when there were less of us on the planet or the stress of life wasn’t so intense.
Before you go out in the world – to work, shop, meet friends and family – do this short meditation asking and allowing you to exchange energy with those who want to do so but don’t know how to do it. This is not a way of sucking the energy out of another, or of allowing an energy vampire free reign to live off you. It’s a willing acceptance of a gift, even though people may not consciously know they’re giving it. It’s a soul-to-soul connection.
Take a moment to get into a quiet space within self (take a couple of deep, cleansing breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth, or concentrate on your heartbeat, or whatever works to get you into a receptive meditative state). Then, speaking from your soul-self, your higher self, the purity of your being, say:
“I open myself to accept the love that others have to give. As I encounter people today, my soul connects with their souls willingly, without harm, without negativity, to receive the Good Will and Good Cheer they offer from their hearts. In turn, I am available to share that Good Will and Good Cheer with others as they need it. I accept this and do this for the good of all, according to the free will of all. Thank you.”
That last part, “…for the good of all, according to the free will of all…” is to guarantee that there is no underhanded intention either from self or from others. This will last until you go to sleep at night, unless you put a time limit on it.
That’s it. Now get on with the day and know that when you encounter someone, even in passing on the road, walking by someone in a store or at work, if that person genuinely wants to help others and share love and Good Cheer (again without knowing how to do so) the two of you will connect on a soul level and the love will be exchanged. Physical contact, even eye-to-eye, isn’t necessary. It’s a pure energy thing. And if you genuinely want to help others, even grumbly, angry people you recognize as just plain nasty, you are now available to do so if their souls are receptive.
This soul-to-soul connection creates a web of light on the vibrational level that looks like glowing pink (unconditional love) and gold (joy and healing) light-cords temporarily flowing from one person to another. It’s quite beautiful. Way above holiday lights because these cords glow with emotion, too.
I offer this with love and gratitude…
