Week 15 – May 24th 2016
In addition to Sarah’s weekly blog on the development circle, another attendee, Serap, shares her experience so far:
After a busy but exciting week full of positive change, I was really looking forward to sitting in the power with our lovely group of friends, and connecting again through this simple yet powerful meditation/ritual. As the weeks go by, we start to get used to each others own unique energy, opening up our hearts a little more and sharing our experiences and learnings.
After a linking of hands, respectful reverent prayers asking spirit to join with us and reunite us with that source within all of us, we relax into our own breath. As I take my focus inwards momentarily, I find myself quickly making the transition into the beautiful space of the “non-physical”, becoming aware of every cell in my body, my senses suddenly become extra-sharp so I can hear the loud sound of silence, a silence and space not quite of this world. After the previous weeks experience, where collectively we felt a very hot vibrating powerful energy within the circle, I was wondering what spirit would have in store for us this week. Patiently focusing my awareness on my breath and inviting spirit to come close, I asked they bring me their wisdom and whatever I needed to learn right in that moment. As I felt the space open up more and more around me, my consciousness seemed to expand beyond the circle of love we had created, out through the four walls of the church, and into a seemingly endless field of peace and joy. Although entirely present in my chair as a physical being, I felt an indescribable peace and gratitude and a disconnection from the limiting self, in this space there were no questions/no doubts/no fears. After a short while I felt the gentle subtle calling card of my guide reassuring me of his presence, and continued my dialogue of thought with spirit, testing and asking, focusing my awareness on any changes in the energy around me and my own physical responses; trying to discern the ‘boundaries’ between myself and spirit.
Visually this week, my usual bright white screen, which seems to expand out horizontally in all directions, was graced by the presence of soft swirling blues and purples bringing in more peace and comfort.
I find that with each passing week, my gratitude for this beautiful connection to my own spirit and those in spirit who work with us, is multiplying and growing. How truly amazing it is that this state of bliss is accessible to us all, simply with an in-breath and a thought from our hearts; and how lucky we are to be working, with each other, to strengthen this bond.
