Day 16 – Miraculous Honor
When we meditate on a regular basis, we develop what is known as “witnessing awareness”—the ability to calmly and objectively observe a situation, acknowledge when we are being triggered, and consciously choose how we want to respond. Instead of feeling stuck in knee-jerk reactions and conditioned patterns of behavior, we free ourselves to make choices that will help us fulfill our deepest desires for love, fulfillment, and happiness.
In today’s meditation we will deepen our experience of witnessing awareness as we practice staying present with our emotions. So often there is a tendency to judge certain feelings as “negative” or “wrong.” We may resist feeling these emotions but this only increases our pain. Every emotion has a valuable message for us, and as we allow ourselves to feel and hold each emotion in loving awareness, our relationship with our self and with everyone in our lives will become more authentic and whole.
Our centering thought for today is: I release and my heart is at peace.
Today set the intention to consult your heart before you act on any emotion. Your heart is a reliable guide that helps you experience empathy, compassion, and love. The heart is the seat of emotional intelligence, and it allows you to get in touch with your true self. It nurtures all of your relationships by reminding you to see yourself in the other. See through the eye of your heart and you open the doorway to manifesting the life and relationships you most desire.
