We are deep within the rebirthing process. Many of us have gone through hardships and experienced many losses and changes in our lives. What we are relinquishing are parts of ourselves that are no longer congruent with our divine plan. We've come far enough through this process to discover whom we really are and are creating the vision of how we would like to shape our lives. The rebirthing process is about letting go of the old way of doing things, changing our perceptions, releasing old patterns, and in some cases on a physical level, walking away from unhealthy relationships, jobs that don't match our life purpose, and relocating to a new area that resonates within us.
In a nutshell we are releasing so many stored emotions and thoughtforms that up to this point we've suppressed and buried in order to deal with the hustle and bustle of daily living. We are being guided to slow down and be mindful through the wake up call we are receiving. Many of us are purging at a cellular level stored sadness and sorrow, anger and frustration, fear and anxiety, and shame and regret. These thoughts and emotions have no place in our energetic field as we are bringing in waves of light and life force where these lower vibrating energies are blocking us from moving forward.
We need to be gentle with ourselves and nurture and nourish our body, mind, and soul. Our nourishment goes beyond the healthy foods we eat. Of course eating high vibrational foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables are important. A step further would be blessing the food we are consuming and showing gratitude for its source. Being mindful as we are eating and connecting with the energy of each bite and not overeat or overindulge.
I was sitting by the lake by my home with two of my friends. We were suddenly surprised to notice a bat swooping and flitting around the lake near the trees. Wouldn't you know we saw three bats and got the message that they were our animal totems! When I looked it up the bat represents rebirth and initiation, a process we are each undergoing in various ways. I woke up this morning and the first thought I had was to write about this. I feel the medicine of bat is here for us all.
A Bat totem appearing in your life
is a call for the end of a way of life and the beginning of another.
You must face your greatest fears
and get rid of the part of your life that no longer is needed.
This transition is very frightening for many:
"better the devil you know…"
But you will not grow spiritually until the old parts are gone.
Face the darkness before you and you will find the light in rebirth.
As we are in the process of releasing the old we must be mindful of our breathing. Many of us are not aware that we are not breathing fully and deeply. Spending time conscious of the breath throughout the day and in quiet meditation is essential to the nourishment of our body. Source is the essence of who we are. The breath releases the stuck energies. We can transmute old thoughts, patterns, and emotions simply by breathing deeply and releasing what no longer serves us. The breath brings in life force energy which nourishes every cell of our being, enabling each cell in our body to vibrate with new life. Cells hold our ancestral and personal memories, if we wish to release the past and change our destiny, simply breath. How easy is that?!
The thoughts we feed to ourselves provide nourishment to our body. Our cells absorb what we are thinking. When we are negative, pessimistic, unhappy, or sad, our body reacts to this and weakens our state of being. We cannot manifest good things when we are telling ourselves "I'm not good enough", "Things never work out for me", and "This sucks". How we perceive things shape our experiences. By flipping the switch of how we think releases us from the bondage of suffering and sorrow.
Our emotional life can be rich in love and contentment, which nourishes us with warmth and good feelings. Many times we hold onto emotions from the past that affects our current relationships. When we allow our past to determine how we react in our present situations it blocks us from experiencing happiness. Many times we are afraid of taking a risk and express our true feelings because our prior experiences were negative. By releasing the cellular memory of past emotional trauma, we may be more open to taking chances, beginning anew, and be liberated from our negative attachment to our old ways.
I was getting so frustrated and discouraged by my over two year process of attempting to getting a loan modification, and feeling a sense of lack of control. I couldn't let go of my anger at the system. It was really bringing me down. I finally made the decision to let go of the outcome no matter what it is. Through prayer and meditation I was able to shift the energy. I am committed to allowing only positive thoughts in. We need to nourish our mind with only loving and positive thoughts. We create our very own heaven or hell.
Love is the essence of our being. Love has the power to heal and nourish our Soul. When we open our heart to expressing love through Source, it has the power to transmute any pain we've ever held and transform our life and heal our sacred heart. By loving ourselves unconditionally, allowing others to love and help us, and sharing authentic love in all of our relationships we are thus filled with Divine Nourishment, which will lead to our rebirth into the light of a new day and a new way.
I accept the many blessings pouring forth from the Universe, filling every cell of my body, mind, and soul with the highest vibration of love, light, healing and nourishment. Please transmute every negative thought or emotion I have ever held. Restore me to peace and balance so that I may experience harmonious living. Attract me to only people, places, situations, and things that are healthy and enhance my life. Assist me in transmuting any and all emotional and physical trauma I have ever endured. Replenish me with Divine nourishment so I may be filled with vibrancy, love, and life force energy.
And so it is.
