We are not simply a body. Nor are we simply a Soul. We are both – and more. What more? A Spirit-Self, forever connected to the Divine – as impossible as it may sound! When we live that full connection, our life becomes imbued with Life, Spirit, Divinity. What happens then? We can manifest with ease! When we don’t live that connection we become lost to ourselves, we struggle and life is dense and difficult.
Remember always: you have 3 parts – meant to be active and aligned every day.
When you are aligned to your full self you create a vortex down which the Divine Life Force can travel to your human self – and that’s when the magic begins. To allow the Divine Life force to run into your everyday life in this way, is to allow the law of attraction to operate at its highest level. I called such alignment your joined-up-self, and below is an exercise to achieve it.
Great works of art, speeches that mobilize millions and brilliant inventions happen to people operating in that join-up space. They are creating from beyond their human intellect and ability. In their joined up state, they have access to the field of intelligence that governs and directs all Life, all Divine Love, all Power. They have access to the very fabric that gives rise to our world. It goes without saying living in such a joined up space is something we should aim for, but it needs to be said that living in such a joined up space ushers in the manifestation of your wants, needs and desires in the most elegant of fashions. Here is one way to do this.
Focus on your breathing, imagining your body relaxing more deeply with each
breath. Allow a picture to come into your mind of your body whilst imagining your Soul and also Spirit Self above you. (As you get good at the exercise you could even imagine yourself as a Soul and do the exercise from that level, or actually in the Ocean of Spirit, as a molecule in the great energy of Life. Allow yourself to be drawn to any of the three aspects.)
The spirit circle
To help you, connect with other spiritual beings, who are in fact ever present and already helping you. You will invite these beings to join you and position themselves in the shape of a circle.
The first Spirit being you invite to your spirit circle is your Master. This might be Christ, Buddha, Mohamed and so on. Invite someone who you believe has been able to master their own human experience. If you have no elected master, and do not follow a religion, invite a non-religious master mind. Greet the Master. Together acknowledge the Sea of Divine Life Force in which the two of you live and move and have your being. Get a picture of this great and wonderful Energy which nurtures and cares and loves, and allow the image to settle you in your heart and to bring you to peace.
Now become aware of those Spirit beings who are with you constantly – like your angels and guides. Greet them and welcome them. Now ask who else should be in this circle on this day. Some days will be different from others. Possibilities are your Spirit or Soul group (a group of Souls who have contracted to assist each other in their life tasks), interested family or friends or animals, remembering that since all of us live on all levels all the time, it is possible that you can invite the Spirits of people who are still alive on earth to be part of your alignment process. They join you in Spirit, whilst their bodies are busy living on the planet.
Complete the spirit circle.
As a group you now come together to experience the Divine Life Force, God, within-without. Imagine a great arising of energy whirling in the circle, an energy full of sparkles and light and power, so much so that it bursts through the boundaries of the circle and spirals down through your Soul-Self and into your head, cascading light, love and power into every bit of your being. Sit in silence, absorbing and being absorbed. If you are not used to meditation techniques, you might find that your mind wanders at this time. Try keep in the moment by focussing on your breathing, counting the breath in and out. Most of all focus on becoming a receiver.
Hold it as long as you can without pushing yourself. I usually end the process by saying ‘let today be a day of soul work’. I visualise the energy vortex set up by the circle spiralling down into all the places I will be that day, imbuing the place with uplifted and Divine Energies that not only bring me to my highest possibilities, but those around me too. Then visualise that you will remain joined-up and aligned all day, guided by the impulses that move through your brilliant body-mind, saying YES to your Soul moment in, moment out.
