Its 3:00am on the morning of my 53rd birthday… and I have no doubt whatsoever about why I am awake. I am on my way to chant with my “sisters,”, a group of incredible women who have made a choice to chant and share this ambrosial hour with me! It was fantastic and so cleansing to have the rain with us this morning. To be able to hear the thunder and smell the rain was such a treat and a great birthday present.
Today’s meditation was Laya Yoga Meditation. Laya refers to the suspension from the ordinary world; it fixes your attention and energy on your essence and your higher consciousness, allowing you to absorb into the bliss and creativity of consciousness. It provides intuition and the power to heal.
After class, I was treated to a beautiful breakfast by my dear friends Becky and Donna. It really was a suspension from the ordinary world, with all the lovely puddles left by the rain and the drop in temperature. I must say it is a birthday I will treasure and hold dear to my heart.
Arriving home, I was greeted by Kevin, Izzie, and Mabel, all very thrilled to see me! There is something to be said about being met at the door by wagging tails and a man with a beautiful soul! What a beautiful day!!
The mantra stuck with me for the next couple of days, my intuition kicked in and I was able to “sense” my way out of some things that were milling around, things I could not really make out on my own. It’s amazing what will sort itself out when you give yourself two hours to chant. Not to mention, it will make your eyes all cool and “glowie.” 🙂
Happy Birthday to me!
