Divine Visit

Angel Carol by Shauna NourhaRecently, the famous Indian “Hugging Saint,” Amma, returned to the Washington, DC area. I went to see her for the second time, bringing with me a couple of friends.  The energy of being in the large room with Amma and so many devoted followers is intense, and a wonderful, uplifting feeling.  One leaves energized and renewed.  Of course, receiving a hug from Amma helps!

This year, I found myself being led to be aware that, while most people were focused on the Divine Presence within Amma herself, my attention was called to the Divine Presence in everyone in attendance, not just in Amma herself.  So, I spent my time being aware of Divine Presence in everyone, which awareness perhaps might be easier to achieve and maintain in this setting than in some other settings.

This awareness brings one to a heightened state of consciousness, a very loving space.  I love getting into that space and then walking around the grocery store, where people are trying to get into the same small spaces at the same time.  Having a higher consciousness can transform the experience, especially if we keep it there!

Higher consciousness does not just entail an intellectual awareness.  This higher consciousness is a partial sharing of the Divine Consciousness – a way of seeing and knowing that comes through our Higher Selves, the crown chakra, and perhaps even the Bindu.

I felt truly blessed by Amma’s visit, and found myself enjoying meeting people and experiencing this higher awareness.  Oh, that we might be more fully aware of the constancy of the visit of the Divine Presence within each and every one of us.

May it be so!

Love and Light,



About selfrealizationtherapy

I am an energy healer, intuitive life coach, author, meditation teacher, and inspirational speaker. While I am ordained in the Christian tradition, I have also studied Eastern spiritual disciplines and practices, including Raja Yoga Meditation; Intuitive Coaching; Reiki; Falun Gong; and other forms of energy healing for both people and animals. I am available for distance healing and spiritual coaching via phone, Skype, or Facetime; please email me at: carol.dodson.richardson@gmail.com to schedule a session. On Thursday, May 27, 2010, I experienced what I call an Enlightenment Vision, in which I ascended and was blessed by Ascended Masters of many faiths: Master Lao Tzu, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha, Paramahansa Yogananda, High Priest Melchizedek, Lady Kwan Yin, Master Usui, and then by the Seven Archangels of the Seven Rays. After this vision, the teachings in Higher Consciousness began. Apparently, my crown chakra was opened, and direct contact with the Ascended Masters has been possible ever since. My message to everyone is: this is possible for you to achieve as well, although getting there is not necessarily quick or easy. With a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University Divinity School, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Texas Health Center at Houston, and a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Texas Christian University, my personal vision is to be a healer and guru-doula, empowering people to experience and to give birth to the divine within themselves, individually and in community. Perceiving a unity in my readings in Eastern religions and in Biblical studies, I believe the original message of Jesus Christ was and is a call to Self-Realization, which may also be called following The Way. The Way, or the Tao consists of the practice of peace and love in every moment, honoring the Divine Presence within ourselves as well as within others. The Way of early Christianity was a spiritual practice which similarly focused not on the material world, but on the practice of Divine Presence within the earthly realm. When we practice The Way, or The Tao, we become one with Divine Peace, Love, and even bliss. When we attain this, we experience the "Kingdom of God" or Reign of God, within ourselves, Nirvana or possibly Samadhi. Achieving this Way within each of ourselves is the only way we will be able to usher in the Reign of Divine presence among us all here on earth. The ultimate goal of The Way, and of Self-Realization, is the attainment of unity with the Divine Consciousness, or Buddha-Consciousness orChrist-Consciousness, within, and beyond our normal mortal mind. This Unity-Consciousness is eternal, but begins in the here and now. May it be so.

    Enjoyed Carol/Nonnie’s refreshing clarity to honor the “spark” in all of us–even in the presence of a well-known “Saint” and celebrity. I love the magnanimous spirit of her writing, and so I wanted to share this nugget here as well!
