“Believe that with your feelings and your work you are taking part in the greatest; the more strongly you cultivate this belief, the more will reality and the world go forth from it.”
— Rainer Maria Rilke
Today marks one week of the Become What You Believe – 21 Day Meditation Experience. For an entire week, through short guided meditations we have discovered how belief gives us identity and opened our awareness to the core beliefs that shape everything in our lives. We are starting to harness the power of belief to heal the past and bring forward a future of wholeness and fulfillment.
Today we are focusing our energy in the belief that we are whole complete beings already. The way we lead our lives determines our wholeness and it is essential to believe that we are whole in order to be complete.
Today’s Message of the Day:
“We often think of life in terms of its many parts or aspects. Even when we simplify it, we think of body, mind, and spirit as separate. But a belief in the ultimate separateness of life inevitably leads to obstacles and problems. In truth, life is one wholeness with many different modulations within it.
In today’s meditation, we experience this unity or wholeness in the silence of our awareness. And when belief is built on this experience of wholeness, all our core beliefs are empowered from their source in awareness. These beliefs then provide us confidence, wisdom, and inspiration in our daily lives.”
The CENTERING THOUGHT for today’s meditation experience was:
“Belief is bringing me into wholeness.”
The SANSKRIT MANTRA used in the meditation:
Om Ram Ramaya
(Perfect balance energizes my body, mind, and spirit.)
Today’s mantra encourages healing energy of true self into every part of our being – heart, mind and body.
Today’s four journal prompts were:
- Write down the three biggest concerns in your life, whether they are physical, mental, or spiritual. These are the constant reminders that you are in need of healing.
- As if you were addressing a friend who has shared these concerns with you, write down the advice you would give your friend in order for them to find healing. Be as thorough as you can.
- Now, write down one specific action you can take today to begin or increase the healing process.
- Use this space to reflect further on your experience today.
I think today’s journal prompts are perfect to get us thinking about our intentions and goals, as well as to encourage us to set a path to achieving our goals. It has only been one week, but I feel like we have done so much more – like I’m a regular meditator. It is truly becoming a habitual part of my life. I think I would miss it if I didn’t do it.
May your evenings be peaceful and your days energetic!
