Monday, December 21, 2009: short (starting the day meditation)

         One of my favorite ways to start the morning is to awaken my love for the divine. With every breath I take in, I imagine my inner self opening up more and more. Usually this is in the shape of a “V”, with the internal image of my arms reaching upward, the bottom of the “V” extending to the lowest chakra.  As I breath outward I pour all my love, appreciation, gratitude towards the divine—no strings attached. I feel my heart opening like a lotus blossom, giving ever more love.
         So often when we hear of prayer we hear of requests made to the divine: favors, protection, guidance. Yes, this is also a way to connect but I tell you now, it has none of the uplifting joy that comes from simply giving total love back to the source of all that flows into your life.
