Calling in the One: Day 2
"I am connected to everyone and everything."
Here we are at day 2 of our Calling in the One journey! I really felt the meditation this morning. And I had the affirmation in my mind all day. When thoughts of anger or irritation wanted to come in, I immediately went to thoughts of connection. The effects that I was most aware of were that my NYC sidewalk rage was significantly decreased and my pace was much slower and less frenzied as I made my way to the subway and my destinations. There were moments when I really did feel the heart energy connecting everyone, and it was really inspiring and centering.
A really cool thing happened later in the day! I hung out with a male friend that I have a mutual attraction with and we had more fun with each other than we ever have before. We laughed so hard and just appreciated each other's company so much. I seriously think that focusing my mind on connection lowered my defenses and allowed my inner child to come out to play even more so than usual, and he responded in kind! Our bond deepened and we were more physically affectionate than we've ever been. I felt so grateful for this interaction and playtime with an attractive man, although I was very tempted to indulge my feelings of lack because he's not a potential partner. I'm beginning to see how that line of thinking is problematic and must consciously choose gratitude. Maybe Love really is all around me, and it's up to me to recognize it. Hmmm...
