Graciella speaks. I channel her words, wisdom, and sentiment. -Theresa
The East: Graciella asks whether you’ve ever shielded your eyes to protect yourself from the sun’s clarity?
Standing on the sandy beach at the water’s edge may be a reason to shield ourselves from the light of the sun. How often do you do that though during the mundane day? Is it easier to live in darkness and denial because the awareness that may await is too frightening for you to endure.
Fear is a default mode for many. Rationalization is another. We often do, indeed, need to protect ourselves but we must know what we are protecting ourselves from. We may be hiding from an expanse of knowledge that will add in our ability to thrive and to grow as beautiful sunflowers.
What is that you fear that takes you away from your growth in this lifetime? Extend your arms to the sun. Gather its light into your hands. Hold that light with love and then bring your loving hands to your third eye and then your heartspace. Let the sun’s loving awareness of all absorb into your being. Now breathe and give thanks.
With light and love,
Graciella and Theresa
