Last week I went to a great lecture by Dr Emoto, of Messgaes in Water fame. He inspired a non-watery post when he had us listen to John Lennon's song "Imagine." The lyrics are absolutely inspired and as the Law of Attraction tells us, we can create the reality of our choosing through our thoughts. I am a huge advocate of vision boards, goal setting and affirmations. They can change our direction in life.
Today I was guided to send healing not to international conflicts, but to all of the cancer cells on earth. I started by visualizing these cells glowing with Love and Joy. My perspective then shifted to include the surrounding organs and tissues. The impression I got was that of a battlefield, with cancer on one side and humanity on the other. It dawned on me that this warlike mentality is not the most productive one to adopt. Essentially, we would be at war with a piece of ourselves.
So how do you solve dilema? I was shown a picture of both sides giving up and putting an end to psychological warfare. At this point, the healing shifted to include all cancers, not just those who are biological. Cancer is the uncontrollable growth of a rogue cell. This could be a cancer cell in a human being, but on a larger scale it could be equated to the proliferation of guns, drugs, political warfare and the Ego's tendency to choose sides and start fights. The distant healing was meant for all human cancers, not just the biological ones that we see in hospitals.
My next question was: where do these conflicts come from? The answer I got was quick judgment and separation: believing our behaviour to be right and other's to be wrong. This can lead to conflict if we do not balance judgment with compassion. It is possible to disagree with others and still be respectful of their attitudes and beliefs. Or at least a little bit understanding (put yourself in their shoes!). I then imagined a stream of healing energy that balanced out judgment and compassion, allowing us to see the beauty and truth in our differences.
I ended the healing by visualizing a world that spontaneously healed itself of all conflicts. On a global scale you might call that wishful thinking, but the truth is peace happens one person at a time. We can all choose to be the peacekeeper in our life. Human conflicts can be prevented one at a time by bringing our consciousness into this space. All it takes is one person with the resolve to dialogue and find common ground. Grounding in the Heart also makes us less reactive to external triggers (learn more here). You can also meditate on this Peacekeeper Consciousness for a few minutes everyday and bring it into your being.
If you'd like to meditate on global peace this is a great song for that, if a little bit Christmassy. But I really do believe the biggest changes come when we take action in our particular sphere of influence. Love and Light!
Let us know how the meditation goes! =)
