The Power of Awareness

The past couple of weeks I have been in a process of witnessing my mind. At times the awareness has been primarily the “I Am” of pure Awareness watching what is arising and passing away with a deep knowing that I am not the thoughts and/or emotions associated with the form known as Crystal Dawn. At times the witness is present and thoughts and feelings arise and while there is an awareness that I am not these thoughts and feelings there is still an identification with them. At times the identification with the thoughts and feelings is arising is stronger than the witnessing of them then the witnessing is noticed and I see where I have slipped into the belief of me as a separate self.

The beauty of this process is that I am appreciating all of it. In the past there would be a judgment when I get lost in the dream of separation. There would be elation when I am feeling the expansion into “I Am” Consciousness. Now, I am seeing it all as Awareness in a variety of forms playing in the Field of Existence and there is an underlying peace through all of it.

Bask in the Emptiness of No-Self

We limit our experience when we believe we are this name and form. Take a moment and see beyond what we call "the self." Recognize Truth shining through all forms. Know you are this Truth. Bask in the Emptiness. Sit quietly for a few minutes and completely let go of the notion of "You." Allow pure awareness to arise, without a self who sees. What do you discover?

On the new moon I went for a late night drive with a friend in his convertible. I wanted to go star gazing. We drove into the country and stopped in a place without ant lights for several miles. The stars were magnetic. I looked up and the stars glowed. My perception shifted and suddenly there was no me. There was only Awareness looking up at the stars. There was so much freedom in letting go of the me. While I have been practicing self-inquiry and meditation for sometime, this tasted so pure. Since then I have been practicing letting go of me and just being Awareness. It is a powerful experience of being free.

July is Self Love Month!

Here are the 5 points of the Self-Love Star.

1. SELF-WORTH- Fill your own cup first. When you have a full cup you can be generous with others. Ask: Do I value my needs? Do I prioritize "me" time?
2. SELF-NURTURING- Nourish yourself. Ask: How do I love myself today?
3. SELF-EMPATHY- Have compassion for yourself. Feel and express your emotions. Trust your intuition.
4. SELF-EXPRESSION- What bold thing would you share with the world if the fear of judgment or rejection wasn't holding you back?
5. SELF-ACCEPTANCE- Forgive yourself. Accept that you are doing the best you can with the resources you have?
