Many people would like to understand what is happening spiritually (i.e. energetically) on this planet, and it is very simple. More spiritual light (consciousness) is flooding onto the planet, and therefore into the lives of all human beings.
This is why it is essential to have a practice which grounds your energy in your body (and ultimately in your heart) because if your attention is usually in your mind and in your thoughts, as consciousness intensifies the reality of your mind will become more intensely experienced. Thus the effect of your thinking will be stronger upon you, and because most thinking has its roots in fear, you will notice yourself feeling more and more insecure, anxious and worried.
However, if you are easily able to direct your attention into your body and connect with your heart, the intensification of consciousness will result in greater feelings of love, joy and freedom, a greater appreciation of beauty and greater wonderment at the magnificence of life.
If you have a tendency toward anxiety and worry, the most useful practice to include in your daily life is regular periods of relaxation. When our body tenses up in fear, relaxation is the antidote. We cannot feel anxious and afraid while we are relaxed. It is impossible. They are mutually exclusive. And when you couple relaxing your body with conscious breathing – which means being aware that your breathing flows in and out regularly and consistently – it is impossible to get tangled up in fearful thoughts.
When we get involved in thoughts, our breathing usually stops and becomes shallow and irregular. But conscious breathing remedies this, and helps our attention stay with the fluid experience of breathing, with the sensations in our body, and it allows our energy to flow in a very relaxed and pleasant way.
When we practice this, we clearly see that fear is just a thought-created illusion, that we pour our attention (our energy) into and thus give a sense of reality to. But it is not real, because when we stop focusing on thoughts, this mind-made reality vanishes. And essentially that is all we need to do. Instead, we relax and allow our attention to move into our body, so that we are feeling the reality of who we are, from the heart’s perspective, which is a spiritual (i.e. energetic) perspective, full of warmth, energy, and vitality.
