ॐ नमः शिवाय
What a beautiful morning today … I’m so happy to be alive
As the sun began to brighten from orange to yellow, my day began with Sencha tea on the balcony taken one sip at a time. Each sip was followed by open-hearted affirmations to myself, the One and all the angels, about what, who and why I am, and about my relationship with myself, all things and the One …. When the tea was gone I added earnest requests for guidance and support in becoming one with all ..
My meditation was as clear as spring water and as deep as an ocean … and yet so open to everything around me and within me .. I felt more elevated than I have ever felt in meditation before and twenty minutes went by like five.
Finished off with a prayer of gratitude to One, the angels and Ascended ones, my own special guide, and myself for guiding, encouraging and supporting me …
And it was all rounded off by 2 poached eggs on toast … which have never tasted so good .. My wife was a sweetheart to have made it for me while I sat in contemplation on the balcony …
I pray that all your mornings are as filled with delight as mine was today.

I am glad you enjoyed your tea, meditation, two poached eggs on toast, feeling “open to everything around me and within me.. more elevated than I have ever felt in meditation before”. Reads like a wonderful morning, and a wonderful experience being alive.

What a lovely post – so uplifting. It brought to mind for me “the ocean fell into the drop”. Meditation has a timeless quality – an hour can go by like a minute. Long may the Universe engage with your “oneness”.

Thank you Anita and Peggy. I am always honoured and very grateful when my words touch someone, and your responses were so lovely …
All my mornings now seem to be going the same way lately .. for the past week my days have started the same way (apart from the poached eggs .. my lovely wife likes a bit of variety at breakfast 🙂 ) … In fact, yesterday and today are the fist 2 days when that routine was broken. Yesterday was a whole morning of guiding and meditating with a new friend who is struggling to control her “monkey mind” … “ego” … and who is full of emotional and physical blockages to her spiritual growth, so my early morning session was short yesterday. I made my devotions and affirmations, said a prayer of gratitude, asked for help, guidance and support … and that was that … but then I did spend almost 4 hours in meditation and energy sharing so …
And last night I fell and damaged my hip .. so this morning I had to meditate in pain in bed … Bah !! …
but I’m still a big old happy bear despite the setback … 🙂July 27, 2019 at 7:10 am #305167
You are welcome. “Monkey Mind”- I haven’t used this term for a long time.
I am sorry to read you fell and damaged your hip- is it a first injury to any of your hips, how did it happen and what is the prognosis on that? (feel free to not answer, of course)

Hi Anita. Sorry for the late reply, I’m not in very often lately … way too busy playing in 3 bands and giving guided meditaitons to friends and small groups 🙂 …
The accident was a simple thing … At 70 yrs old, and with the mind of a 35 yr old, I tend to forget myself sometimes. I had been sitting on the floor watching TV while my wife lay on the settee behind me. I think I must have been pinching one of the larger nerves in my right leg (sciatic maybe) because when I got up to go to bed, my right leg was as controllable as a tube of cotton wool …
It gave way and I came down like a felled tree. In the process of going down, I sort of twisted and bent at the waist. My head went to the left, my legs fell away to the right .. and I landed imn a double whammy, straining my right-side quadrus lumborum .. it stretched the muscle and affected the attachment at the ribs end, so now, if I’m not careful, I get a viscious twinge in my right lower back when standing up from a chair.
Other than that there is no serious damage, except that the outer side of my right leg is bruized deeply, and my hip joint aches from the over-rotation … but after a week, I’m back to 5km per day walking, so when it’s all active I’m good .. Though I don’t think I’ll be doing any mad antics at any of my rock band performances for a good few months to come … 🙂
Thanks for your concern.
