ever so often i have to take a minute to reboot, reset, restart life all over again. sometimes it’s when i’m going through a change. other times its just because.
i love spending a saturday afternoon reading recent posts from my favorite bloggers. recently i found mara from a blog about love.
a week or so ago mara posted what i thought was a superbly written piece about hitting that restart button. it is a meditation by Belleruth Naperstak.
read it and let it soak in.
i declare my intention to heal in body, mind & spirit.
i invite assistance from friends and loved ones – past, present & future – to lend me their support and their strength. i request assistance from the invisible forces all around me. and welcome their love and support.
more and more, i understand that my healing will happen in it’s own way, and it’s own time.
i see myself surrounded by the love and caring of those who have come before me – whose banner i carry now.
i know i am better and better able to accept how i feel – as my inner truth of the moment.
i know that the more i can acknowledge and accept how i feel – without criticism or blame – the more i allow myself to heal.
i am better and better able to be kind, gentle and appreciative toward myself.
i welcome my increasing ability to sense the assistance around me – guiding me back to my own strength, courage, and resourcefulness.
i know my heart will heal with the energy of it’s own life force.
more and more, i can see and feel my own beauty, value and worth.
i am better and better able to define myself and value myself independent of the behavior of others.
i see and feel radiant sunlight warming my body – sending comfort and solace deep into my heart.
i salute my ability to survive – and my courage to heal.
i know that when i appreciate my body, respect it, and take good care of it – i allow myself to heal.
i can feel a soft warm healing energy pulsing deep into my heart.
i can feel my heart filled with it’s own healing energy.
i know that i am held and cradled and affirmed by the generations that have gone before me.
more and more, i understand that my value has never been defined by the behavior of others.
i know that torn place will repair, and my heart will be made whole.
i will find my center, heal my heart, and reclaim my strength.
i understand that beautiful and wise and worthy people know devastation and loss, just as i have.
i salute the generosity of my true nature.
more and more, i remember that i deserve to give love and receive love.
i am the exquisite result of the combined lifetimes of my ancestors.
i know that even great pain can be a valued teacher.
i will grow compassion, wisdom and kindness from the sorrow of my past.
i know there is a part of me deep inside that is sufficient and whole – and it can never be diminished or demeaned.
i know that beneath the darkness that sometimes overtakes me, there is a place where i am radiant with the beauty of my being.
i look to the time when i will reclaim my strength and express the full range of my gifts.
i know that my heart is large is enough to hold my suffering and strong enough to transform it.
more and more, i can see the beauty all around me, and draw nourishment from it.
i welcome my awareness of the peaceful power within my heart, the seed of my strength, the home of my spirit.
i know that i have things to do, gifts to give, purposes to accomplish.
i know that i am held in the hands in God and am perfectly, utterly safe.
