I received a letter from one of my European students who informed me of the many mask seminars we held together over 20 years ago, to say how much these same meditations are helping right now during the pandemic. Many others will be familiar with this Meditation, so thought I would offer it to you. It is a good way to touch home base within yourself.
What are these masks we so often wear?
We do not want to know, what we are hesitant to face.
We find we hide behind our fears and the most common one, our excuses.
We hide behind our habits and routines.
We hide behind our expectations and also behind our Insecurities…. And so on.
Let’s begin by placing both open hands over the face. Make sure your fingers are together across your forehead.
Now gently close your eyes.
Become aware of feeling the pressure of the fingers upon the forehead, across the third eye.
Notice that we make a habit of collapsing into this position.
Straighten your head, your fingers are not a crutch to support you. In this moment you’re here to support you!
I would like you to now release the fingers off the forehead, take them out 2 hand spans in front of your nose. Keep your palms open facing you.
Re-silence your mind, take your time….
Feel your inner silence …. accept that your fingers, which are known as - The language of the stars - are working with you….
Know that there is a relationship beginning to form between both your fingers and your face….
Know that there is a feeling of love and respect working its way throughout your body…
Allow this calmness to heal this tired mind. Take your time. Feel it, touch it, love it!
Now place your fingers back upon your forehead and thank yourself for the experiences you are releasing on behalf of yourself right now.
Slowly move your open palms back away from your face like an open book about 20 to 30 cm away from your face ready to read.
Look into this open book that your palms represent, to see which mask has formed a relationship with you, right now.
Which is the first experience to spring to mind; is it one of your fears?
Is it something you were hesitant to face?
Is it another one of your excuses that seems to be repeating itself?
Is it one of your old habits, or a routine that should have been reinvested in years ago?
Is it one of your expectations, that still has not eventuated?
Or maybe it’s another one of your insecurities that continually tire your body into exhaustion?
Look deeper into your palms to see the pictures release themselves.
What words do you see surrounding this mask, you seem to spend so many hours hiding behind?
Try this daily for you to find that all these ingratitude’s that you have regarding self, will have the power to release and heal you.
Where tomorrow is a better day. A loving day.
Feel the relaxation of the beat of your heart, as you welcome yourself back home.
This meditation, looking into yourself, only takes a few minutes each morning. Can you find the time to gift yourselves those few minutes, before your day actually starts?
Note the changes that will occur throughout your new found day.
Love Always, Omni
P.S. If I may add, for those who have tried this Meditation and cannot find an immediate answer, ask yourself if you are ready to trust in you.
