DAILY SPIRITUAL NUGGETS: 30 Days of Celebrating New Beginnings – Day 3 “Death and Resurrection”
Meditative Thought: During this time of the celebration of new life or resurrection, we must be aware that something has to die. To truly embrace a new incarnation, the old way of existing must fall away. One of the reasons we do not manifest a new way of being is because we hold on to the old one; it still services us in some way. When the fear of letting go is greater than the vision of a new life, we remain stuck and transformation becomes challenging. We must be willing to die in the old life to fully step into the new one. There has to be a death of sorts if you want a rebirth.
In yoga, the last asana is called the Shavasana, or corpse pose. The purpose of the Shavasana is to die in the practice because it is done. We move into meditation, and then we awaken and embrace our resurrection. A new perspective of you and your connection to the Divine is awakened, but only after the death of what has come before. Today is the day that we allow all that no longer services us to fall into the grave of transformation so that we may begin our new life.
Your Spiritual Assignment: Today, make a list of all the things that no longer serve you, and then be willing to release them. This process begins with the identification and moves to the action phase. You only have to identify and be willing. Then turn within to ask your higher self when and how you should release what is holding you back. Don’t move into action until you hear from God.
Affirmation: Just for this moment…just for this breath, I release all things that no longer serve me. I receive the highest blessing from the Universe. As my mind expands, so does my existence. There is only one love, one mind, one spirit. And so it is, and so it shall be. Amen
