The Power of Keeping a Journal

Reviewed on October 1, 2016~These Blessings were noted in last year’s journal at the start of the year.  As mentioned I read them today and was blessed anew.  Reminded of the benefits to self and others of keeping priorities straight and using the magic mantra~”Be mine in your mind, Remember Me alone”~Manmamabhav

January 5, 2015

He gives me this Blessing:  You are the one who receives a great joy when you enable others to rise, shine, and soar.  By putting others first and letting go of all desires for yourself, you have won the heart of all, and you have become a World Benefactor.

You are the one whose luminous presence gives hope to the hopeless and courage to the disheartened.  Your light dissolves the weaknesses of souls and ignites the flame of power within.

January 7, 2015

Blessing:  With your stock of happy and Godly thoughts, you finish the stock of wasteful words and actions.  Because of this your spirituality fills the atmosphere with power and electrifies souls with the current of the Divine.

January 8, 2015

He gives me this Blessing: You’re the one whose magical eyes see the beauty and speciality of each soul.  This vision unites the gathering and infuses every heart with a sense of belonging.

January 9,2015

He gives me this Blessing:  You are a child of the Bestower whose hands, heart, and mind flow with the riches of the Divine.  Because of this , desire has dissolved and the stamp of being a child of the Bestower is imprinted on your soul for all time.

January 10, 2015

He gives me this Blessing:  You have become a detached observer who strolls through each moment with a beautiful companion who all souls have sought through time.  Because of this, you sing the song of your fortune and bubble with joy in this Diamond Age.

January 12, 2015

Blessing:  You are the one who breaks free of the cage of bondages by letting go of the word “mine” and  flies like an angel through Godly skies.  Give this Blessing to the world.  From a caged bird, you have become an angel who soars with the wings of freedome, light, and love as you let go of the word “my” (mine) i.e. my pain, my body, my house, my car, my idea, etc, etc, etc…

January 13, 2015

He gives me this Blessing:  You are a perfect yogi.  You continue to smile and sing songs of wonder knowing that the greatness of sorrow is how it allows our days of happiness to come.

January 14, 2015

He blesses me with this Blessing:  You benefit yourself and shine with the Glow of God’s Light.  Because of this you remove the illness of spiritual disheartentment in all souls.  Your example infuses them with faith and inspires them to rise to their soul’s heights.

January 15, 2015

He blesses me with this:  Just as 1 drop of water cannot penetrate waterproof material, God’s Love has made you “mayaproof”.  No illusion or attraction can penetrate the barrier of this eternal and altruistic love.

January 16, 2016

He blesses me with this Blessing:  With the magic mantra of Remembrance, you can achieve whatever you wish.  By keeping this mantra in your awareness constantly, you achieve bondless success and a future beyond your wildest dreams.            Mantra= Be mine in your mind, Remember Me alone.

January 17, 2016

Blessing from Above:  You see yourself as special and only speak of the specialty of others.  Because of this you radiate Godly Royalty and fill the hearts of those you know with Dignity and Divinity.

 

Also began the “Happiness Project” with these words~Let me move through life with lightness and beauty.  Let me accept compliments and insults with humility and acceptance and as a master I will be happy in all that I do.”

Start by being cool, introverted, and very cautious.

 

Message to self on January 19, 2015

It is a wonder that only when you have a changeless sense of who you are, can real changes take place, gracefully.

It was during this time of blessings, noted, that a piece called ‘And the Mountain said Yes’ came through.  It is shared on another page of this blog of spiritual mementos.

And the mountain said YES.

Sitting on the bluff, being blessed by the view of  Hanalei Bay and the breath-filling vista of the mountain range (the Na Pali) which extends all the way to Mt. Makana, (“Hollywood’s Bali Hai)  at the “end of the road”, at least 15 miles from here.

Gently, slowly my head turned away, as if by a source other than my own. From the ocean~my gaze was  pulled towards the lioness in the mountain of  this magnificent mountain range behind my home.  Mamalahoa, who stands at attention on the North Shore of Kauai,  close guardian of my hale (home) had magnetized my attention.

My eyes were transfixed upon Mamalahoa when I heard these words, so clearly in my head, “My beloved, you are protected.”  Inside I jumped as I looked even deeper at the mountain and said out loud: “are you talking to me!!!”, in a slight case of shock.    Again the same voice said, “Bring the children here”.

I gasped, swallowed hard, knowing exactly what the mountain meant.

“You can do it”, said another voice.  “Take back your power now.  It is now or never.  This is a magical opportunity to be well…happy, contented and in service.”  I felt as if the Highest on High was now directing my thoughts as I heard:

Be Mine in Your Mind, Remember Me Alone

Manmanabhav

Tell them the mantra that disciplines the mind.

Go for it. You can do it.

I burped deep in the throat and said “excuse me” ever so politely.  Then a flood of resistance came up…the ego shuddered and said: Go away from here!  Cleary this was the voice of the frightened ego, overriding me, the soul!

Quietly shocked, I realized how much I wanted to surrender, to give up the ego that blocks the passage of breath (‘ha’ in Hawaiian), to give up the ego that silences the quest for authenticity, truth, magnitude, to give up the ego that dances with fear!

I wanted so deeply to come home to myself.

  Then I heard another message:

                   ” Let it Be.  Be Your Self and Be Free.  “You can do it,”  said the mountain, my friend in need.  Yes, my friend, my neighbor, my beloved, my strength, my power personified in 3-D through a mystical sound system.

“Go within and find your inner mountain of Truth and Stability; the place that spurs you on to take the next step even in the face of fear and loathing. Go Beyond Everything and Come Back Clean. Take Others with You…Give them a chance, an opportunity,to rise up with the Father.  Don’t wait, Don’t hesitate.”

Such was the birthing of “Sunset Meditations on the Bluff” back in May of 2015.  An auspicious beginning which has attracted tourists and locals alike, both young and old to sit on the bluff, close to our mountain ally and remember who they are.

Seekers of themselves, of a Higher Power, of Beauty, of Peace, of True Love, of Truth.  This is the gift, the Gift of Mamalahoa, the one who believes in me so deeply, the one who waits patiently for humankind to wake up, the one who encourages us with her beauty and power to live up to our own true infinite worth.

Whenever your journey leads you to this precious Island~ Island of the Golden Light~ Kauai, and to her  magnificent mountain ranges of the north, be sure to listen for the message that will bring you home to your Self.

And if you happen to see our meditation flyers on the bulletin boards around the island, at the health food store in Kilauea and the  yoga studios of Hanalei that mystically pull at your heart strings, then give a call to Shivalaya and join us in meditation every Friday and Sunday at 4:30 p.m. at the Treehouse Sanctuary sitting directly across from beautiful Mamalahoa on one side and Hanalei Bay on the other side.

Come for a deepening into your own truth, a deepening into peace, and an opening into a self-respect that comes purely from the inside.  Allow these virtues and qualities to become unshakeable within you~like the mountains who embody stabiity and a royalty all their own.

To My Beloved of Another Time~Another Age~

This was originally written as a “Wedding Blessing” to a charming and talented young couple on 10/10/04.

As I rediscover this blessing, which  was written , almost 10 years ago, I recognise within it, my own blessing for my beloved of another age, an age which is forthcoming, a time of peace, of happiness, and of true love.

The original Wedding Blessing has been almost totally revised and has emerged as something incredibly lovely.

The last 8 words remain the same in both blessings and parts of the original are contained in this new version.

 

Blessings for “US”

This is my  wish for you my darling, for our life together, for our wedded bliss, for the “us” to come.

The “us” which has already been, and which will be once again and again, eternally.

I wish you mornings washed in sunlight, warmed by our voices speaking of eternity.

I wish for us a marriage of pristine union, ease, grace, and of universes happily coalescing.

I wish for us the joy of the pilgrimage that has brought us the reward of the Promised Land over and over again.

I wish you the thrill of Gratitude, overflowing everywhere, nourishing and awakening all of life.

I wish you the compassionate embrace of all pasts, presents, and futures.

I wish you Love’s Dominion bonded to the Soul of God,  in total  completeness that you may know at once the reverence of  joy and the victory of breaking new ground into the Holy Age.
