Creating with Soul Power

Doing what you do “with love” is the only way to accumulate sprititual power and merit.  If you are moving from guilt, obligation, or force, you will not receive the results you are seeking.

As you choose to build up the spiritual aspect of your nature~do it with Love.  The love of knowing that everyday you have committed time to do something that will be yours for eternity.  You are adding to your account of consciousness.  Keep this appointment with yourself.  This teaches kindness and respect to the self and strengthens your determination to overcome distractions, carelessness, and laziness.

Start your day right, by carving out some morning time that is dedicated to You.   Make it spiritually significant to you.  Then it will be easier throughout the day to enjoy moments when you connect in  with your Self again.  Being able to quickly recognize that you are a soul, by affirming this truth through a simple statement such as: “I am a peaceful soul” as you sip water throughout the day, empowers every cell in the water, as well as every cell in your body.  Choose a simple statement that resonates deeply~choose a statement that is most likely to ignite your light! Starting with peace is a powerful step.

Even the most basic practice, repeated consistently, can bring enormous benefit.  You may also add to this by saying I am a peaceful soul 10 to 20 times as you cook,  do your laundry,  as you are driving or as you go about your work day.

As you walk to your car or to the bus, continue to affirm to yourself…I am a peaceful soul.  This small step qualifies you to enter a wonderful spiritual doorway. You are entering into your true reality, that of a spiritual being of light.

You may feel that it is not easy to live in this world and to be spiritual. Granted there are definitely forces at foot to pull us down.  An easy method to lift yourself time and time again and to fuel your consciousness is to have easy access to thoughts which make your soul smile, which refresh and restore your stamina.  Thoughts, which as soon as you think them, give you a spiritual rush and transport you from ordinary consciousness to a higher state of awareness.  It does take effort to redirect thoughts.  The choice is yours, would you rather have thoughts that elevate you or thoughts that limit you, keep you stuck, or even depress you?  As we understand on deeper and deeper levels, that thought creates reality, this practice takes on more meaning and importance.

Take the thought that “I am a powerful soul, full of spiritual power”.  Yes, I am a powerful soul despite any weaknesses that I have acquired over time.  The reality of my original state of being is that I am a powerful soul. Allow yourself to accept this thought. Allow the feelings behind the thought to come into your experience of yourself; this will happen as you contemplate on the spiritual truth of the thought. “Yes, I am a powerful soul, I feel my spiritual well-being rising.”  Such contemplations  guide us into positive experiences of power.

“As you palpably feel the fullness of your spiritual energy, that experience is imprinted in your subconscious mind. It becomes a new reality that you can access.  Over time, with regular reinforcement, this subconscious imprint will begin to impact the activity of your conscious mind.

Soon I am a powerful soul will color your attitudes, perceptions, and beliefs…i.e. this reality will become first nature to you.”

What is Meant by Spiritual Power?

These words come from a very beloved soul, former leader of the Brahma Kumaris who is affetionately and respectfully called Dadi Prakashmani.

When asked “What is meant by spiritual power?” She replied: Spiritual power means:

the Power of Peace,

the Power of Love,

the Power of Wisdom,

the Power of Bliss,

the Power of Judgement,

the Power to Accomodate,

the Power to Tolerate, and

the Power to be able to Face any situation.

The Supreme Being is the Almighty Authority, full of all these powers.  Through our connection with this One, we are able to receive these powers as a gift, as a blessing.  My experience has been that with these powers from the Supreme, things whichappear to be problems are blessings in disguise just as while the ocean has waves on the surface, deep within the ocean there is stillness, there is silence.

Listen From the Inside

 Sitting here thinking of you, the reader,  I realize how it has taken years of pondering issues, problems, and dilemmas to get to a point of knowing. This kind of knowing goes far beyond the twin shadows of doubt and delusion. For so long, I wondered if I  had something to say worth the time it takes to write it down and worth the time it takes you to read it.  For so long, as well, I’ve known that I can write and that I love to write.  For just as long, I wondered what is it that I want to say and what do I dare say in these times?

The next hurdle to writing that I faced was: WHO will LISTEN, really listen from the INSIDE???  Several years ago, while living here on Kauai, I heard the answer.

“Many will listen,  many will hear, will resonate, and find their own goodness and spiritual power through your courage to write and share.

Souls with their own unspoken messages, with their own questions banging on the door of their consciousness, gasping to be heard, will listen and feel happy to hear another soul, voicing from the deep!  Souls, immersed in their own struggles and challenges, will sense a life-giving voice, that acknowledges who they are.

As I continued to listen from the inside, I heard more:

“THIS IS THE WAY INTO YOUR OWN SPIRITUAL TREASURE.”  Share the jewels of knowledge you have been ever so fortunate to receive.  For the more you share, the greater your fortune.  Churn the knowledge and directions given freely by the “Knowledge-Full  One”, so they may feed your intellect and make it divine.  Jump start others’ intellects so they may become golden, as well.

This life is all about awareness.  Where your awareness goes, your intellect either thrives or withers.  The Jefferson Airplane, rock stars of the sixties, were approaching this truth when they sang: “Feed Your Head”.  Their reference was to hallucinogenics, plant medicines, and the like.  What I’m writing about, dear friend,  is a very different calling.  This requires a different “out of the body” experience.  This is about surrendering “normal”, everyday body consciousness and going beyond the limitation of the senses, to know soul consciousness, our original birthright. 

     This is powerful medicine~ divine medicine for souls trapped in the material experience, an antidote for the growing number of insomniacs of the world, a clear passage for all who have ever been bound by conflicting emotions, “shoulds  and shouldn’ts”, weakening thoughts, obsessions, addictions, or compulsions.  It is for the spiritually-hungry beings who need an infusion of nectar to open the doorway into matters of their own soul, to realize and emerge their true nature,  to activate their true awareness, and forge their own destiny!

Yet, sometimes the best thing, in matters of the soul, is to say nothing.  I’ve learned that the best practice is to give others an experience, an experience that will stay with them for a long time and give them a sense of authority, of self-sovereignty, of knowing.

For truly it is only Truth that can awaken the slumbering soul; however, according to David Hawkins, MD, PH.D.  doctor, psychiatrist turned mystic, who has done extensive research in the fields of human development and enlightenment, only 22% of the present population will resonate with or recognize the truth when they are exposed to it!!!

Yet, look around and see it IS the time.  It is ‘now or never’ for the souls of the world to be filled to overflowing with truth.

As I listened from the inside, I heard more: the world is awaiting the preciousness of your smile and the wisdom of your heart. Your part is that of the actor who loves truth and walks onto the stage of life and becomes it. Share the truth… freely, but tactfully. Distribute the nectar and the jewels.

The first and foremost jewel for souls is to know: who You are… who you are beyond your present name, gender, occupation, relationships, family, and even, beyond your own  body.

You are so much more than all you see. You have been brainwashed into thinking that “seeing is believing” and that this is all there is.  Though you have attached your heart to all that you see, there is still hope to experience the greater you, the Magical You, the Higher Self, the Great Soul that you are.

You may enjoy beginning with this simple experiment using your”power of thought”.

As Einstein said: “the world we have created is a product of our thinking, it cannot be changed without changing the thinking that created it.”

In this contemplative experiment, you are invited to perceive yourself and others differently.  Here goes:

“I  am an amazing prince or princess from a civilization of divine beings of light~ angelic beings~.  I have come into this physical dimension to find my brothers and sisters, who are also angelic beings of light.  They lost their when their wings were cut by the evils of ego, attachment, greed, anger, and lust.  They tried to substitute the transitory passions of material existence for the eternal bliss of the spirit.  They confused this physical dimension with their true Home in the dimension of light.

I’m on a mission to retrieve them from the clutches of Maya, the powerful force of illusion, which has caused so many souls to lose sight of another reality.  I am focused and full of memories of our true identity as powerful, eternal, masterful beings of light, beloved children of the Supreme Being, the One who is calling us back Home.”

As these seed thoughts are received into the ground of you, the soul, you begin the liberation process. As you resonate to the truth behind this vision,  ask yourself if you are willing to  live a life that goes beyond the limitations of the five senses.  Ask yourself if you would like to become aware of yourself as a being of light who has simply put on a costume made of matter in order to fulfill your earthly role.

This process of waking up from body consciousness to soul consciousness, from forgetfulness to remembrance is the practice of  Raja Yoga Meditation of India, the most ancient form of yoga/union, as taught and practised by the Brahma Kumariis of Mt. Abu.  At the present time, this ancient practice of remembrance has spread around the globe.

This is a truly rewarding process; however, please remember that patience is a virtue, especially when shown to yourself.  Know that this  journey, this pilgrimage of a thousand miles begins with one step, with one call.   And that with each step you take, the Divine Being of Light will take a thousand steps to meet you and assist you.

My pure wish is that your way always be blessed and that you may you reach your ultimate destination with ease.  May you journey with happiness and honor!

To learn more about the practice of Raja Yoga Meditation and to step into greater freedom and awareness, you are welcome to call me @ 808-639-9436. All meditations and classes offered are free.

I’ve been a practitioner and teacher of this wonderful practice of inner yoga, a yoga without asanas, a yoga which brings the soul into union with the Divine for almost 9 years. I’ve just returned from my 5th journey to Mt. Abu, Rajasthan where the World Spiritual University of the Braham Kumariis is located.  I have come to appreciate that this ancient practice is meant for these times.  It is for all souls, all faiths, and all walks of life.  Take just a  drop full, a cupful, or come merge in the Ocean.  It is your call!  I am here to be of service.

Wishing You Many Blessings of Love, Light, and Peace,

Shivalaya
