I heard a spiritual teacher say that if you’re looking for magic, you'll find it. When it comes to uncovering the secrets of mystical teachings, however, sometimes just the opposite is true. In my experience, these 'secrets' are often revealed when I have let go of the search!
OUR ANCIENT HOME
For the past 27 years, I have been deeply immersed in a far-Ancient Healing modality. It’s original name was ‘Ke Ala Hoku’ — Pathway to the Stars, and though it is a form of Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, this rare work has it’s roots in the profound Wisdom of the original peoples of Hawai’i, and their embodied mysticism. This teaching guides us to little known ways of accessing abundant Health, Well-Being, Energy, Clarity, Inspiration & Joy. It is a pathway which holds a direct experience of The Divine, and brings us into an embodied resonance of Love, Healing and Wisdom. It brings us home to our original state of Being.
STEPPING ONTO THE ‘PATHWAY TO THE STARS’
People get very excited when I share this beautiful (and true!) description of the work. What can surprise them, however, is the pathway itself: This profound opening is here, now, inside of each of us. I’m not sure why this is often anti-climactic for some people. Perhaps because they’ve lived with themselves for as long as they can remember, and figure they know themselves pretty well. Seemingly no Divine Light has shown up in their love for chips or dislike of long road trips!
This pathway, however, is not found in our conscious perceptions, nor just in our goodness, our light or our beliefs. It is found in this breath you’re taking right now, in this emotion of hope, anger or indifference. It is found in these sensations of your eyes blinking, the air on your skin, and even what you can’t feel or know, hidden in your subconscious & unconscious mind. The Ancients opened a pathway to Creation itself inside of our cells.
UNCOVERING THE MAGIC
Many of us have been seeking with our minds, for an ideal destination we think we already know. What if the Light, Intelligence & Wisdom of the Divine, in it's wholeness, has been pouring through us all along? The secrets of this profound work are hiding in plain sight, but our minds are already so sure of what they are seeing, these powerful truths may just as well be buried deep underground.
This Ancient work calls upon us to step into a kind of perception that does not necessarily filter through the mind. We are asked to take a step back — to allow our mind to relax without an answer. See if you can listen with an open attention from a place that doesn’t need to make sense or draw conclusions — a place that is willing just to listen. The Great Mystery infuses every aspect of who we are — beyond our understanding. As we soften our need for ‘the answer’, we enter dimensions of experience that cannot be defined. We learn to listen to the language of the Soul, as it passes through our waking experience in each moment. According to the Ancients, that which we seek, the Source of all Being, is ‘closer than breath’.
WE ARE ALREADY FREE
Beyond our ideas of the Sacred, Holy and True, lies the moment in which we find ourselves right now — this moment that includes and embraces every aspect of who we are. None of who we are is unworthy of the Sacred. None of who we are is left behind. We are the doorway to the Mystery. In it’s vastness, lies our wholeness.
Are you ready to open to a new paradigm? Inside of you, there is a new place to listen from, and it is bursting to be Free!
Where in you life have you exhausted yourself pushing for an outcome?
Can you find, even small ways to let go of this goal and listen to Life with an Open Attention?
