Honoring Ganesh, Part III

Honoring Ganesh, Part III

The third lesson in how Ganesh can help us remove obstacles from our path by guiding us to remove our inner obstacles has to do with our own behaviors.  Specifically, if we have habits that are blocking us from moving forward on our spiritual paths, Ganesh can help us to be aware of them, and will send us guidance, companionship, and blessing for overcoming them.

If we ask, Ganesh will help us to see all the different facets of why our current behavior patterns do not work.  He will also guide us into seeking to live from our true selves.

One of my biggest struggles in life has been overcoming a tendency to stay up late, and get up later than I really need to in order to have time for both meditation and exercise in the morning.    Logo Affirmation

Granted, I have already given up so much on the spiritual path:  the occasional glass of wine, seeking pleasure for the sake of pleasure, companionship merely for companionship, coffee, caffeinated tea only once a day, overeating, expensive clothes, a job just for great income, and so on.  One thing has remained:  Netflix and the internet in general.

I haven’t had access to cable TV for some time, so I have had a tendency to watch one or two episodes of TV shows on Netflix, leaving very little time to meditate and then get to bed by midnight.  I have tended to wake up a little before 7, with a mind too foggy to focus efficiently and get started quickly for the day.

Even as I write, I am being set free of this entanglement, finding emotional comfort from divine presence within, as well as choosing to feel fulfilled by the work I do rather than feeling stressed out by it.  I focus on the divine presence working through me, and this is, always, a source of love and joy.

Also, I have been given the opportunity to learn Falun Gong, or Falun Dafa, which I find is worth getting up in the morning to do, and it has helped me to get up earlier.  Falun Dafa is a spiritual practice of exercises and meditation, similar to Tai Chi, as well as a philosophy.  (For more on Falun Dafa, please go to falundafa.org)

All in all, I am making progress, and at least moving in the direction I would like to live my life.  Progress is possible; even changing habits is possible on the spiritual path.  When we change those habits, we discover new possibilities which open up before us, and a new sense of self can emerge.

May you find a higher wisdom and strength within you, so that you will be disciplined in ways that help you accomplish your goals in life.  May you find the presence of Ganesh and/or other Higher Beings at your greatest times of need.  The best way to receive the companionship and help is simply to ask.

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.
