đź’•Calling in the One: Day 43


"I bless (my) ______, exactly as it (s/he) is right now."

Today's lesson was about creating an enchanted life by doing the ordinary in an extraordinary way. It's also about blessing your life, the people in it, and everything you come in contact with exactly as they are. This meditation was so moving, it brought me to tears. Radical acceptance has been on my radar since I read my first Byron Katie book and began studying her teachings on inquiry, although I've gotten pretty lazy about staying on top of my thoughts in this way. The meditation helped me realize that. Also, when I recently studied Chakra therapy with Anodea Judith, I learned that I have a sacral chakra wounding, which has created its excess, due to overcompensation. The typical thought patter of "the Oral" -- the name given to one with this wounding -- is "If only I had [this]..." or "As soon as [this] happens, I'll be happy or feel peace [etc.]" It's also typical of the oral type to feel a charge around having and being enough. I felt this so deeply.

Anodea worked with me in front of the entire class, adjusting my posture and having me breathe into the back of my sacral chakra,/ exhaling out the excess charge from the front -- balancing it back towards the spine. She then asked me what happened to me as a child that may have been overwhelming emotionally. I responded that I had taken on the heavy emotions of my parents. She nodded in acknowledgment. All this to say that not accepting reality is oftentimes based on our wounding, which can be addressed and healed in a multitude of ways. This meditation is a beautiful way to start. It felt like a healing prayer, and I think I will incorporate this into my daily practice.
