Techniques for taming wild beasts

Sometimes I feel like there are lots of people living inside of me- as if I’ve retained an identity from each stage of development that I’ve gone through. When my mind gets going, several of them can be chiming in at once. There is not just an endless stream of thought, there are several layers of it. And all of them have an opinion. All. Of. Them. Except the one that’s a soundtrack.

Meditation reminds me that underneath that chaos, there is perfect order. When I meditate, bringing my mind to focus and stillness is often like an excavation- diving down through each layer of mind, sending it love, and telling it respectfully to pipe down.

Creating this site has been such a blessing. Here, I am doing the best I can with what I’ve got and WOW! Things happen so beautifully even when ‘I’ don’t feel like ‘I’ have the ability to make them happen. Know why? Because the doing is not for me. When I release doing in favor of being, Spirit is able to work through me. In being, my actions organically unfold according to the requirements of the moment. It’s not me, it’s Shakti.

Then, my ego chimes in… “but I want to do it.” My ego is the petulant teenager layer of my mind, by the way. She’s way too saucy to submit to authority without a fight. So, I must do with her as I do with my 3-year-old son when he gets agitated. I stop what I am doing (there’s that doing again), look him in the eye, and be present with him. So, how does one do this with one’s mind? Meditate. Take some time today and feel the L O V E. ♥
