The Very Real Presence of God Is Within
The concept of the Real Presence of God within us is a vital concept on the path of Self-Realization. The opportunity we have is to move past intellectually understanding this concept, and beginning to perceive this truth, as well as to experience it within ourselves. Experiencing God within us as sheer presence creates wonders in life.
First, to move in the direction of experiencing Divine Presence Within, we can practice the affirmation, “The Very Real Presence of God Is Within Me.” During our morning and evening meditation, we can practice this affirmation as a mantra. As we think this mantra in our heads, we breathe in while thinking “The very real presence of God is within” and seek to become aware of breathing in divine presence both with our breath, and in through our crown chakra, coming in through the top of our heads. We breathe out and think, “me,” and let go of the word “me” quickly, while seeking to perceive the presence of God flowing peacefully into our being, especially into our heart and abdominal area.
Inviting the real presence of God to flow into us as peaceful, loving energy, we soothe our own energy, feeding in love, and releasing fear, as well as bringing in peace, and releasing resistance. We begin to feel the presence of God as wise, peaceful, loving energy that remains in us calmly. This Presence has no fear. This Presence has patience to breathe, and to wait before speaking, acting, or deciding.
Beyond our meditation practice, though, we need to practice this affirmation throughout the day, if we would like to receive the full benefit of it. So, if we would like to feel that calming presence that invites us to remain at peace, and to pause before interacting with the world of form which is around us, then we do well to practice this affirmation.
If we are really struggling to feel love, and to feel loved or to feel love for someone else, we can switch the word “God” to the word “love” and affirm: “The very real presence of Love is within me.” Again, we breathe in the love with our breath and through the tops of our heads, and allow the love to flow into our whole being, especially our hearts and abdominal area.
Affirming “The very real presence of God is within me” can truly keep us centered, peaceful, more loving, and more joyful throughout our day, and throughout life! So, please affirm this, and I will affirm with you that “The very real presence of God is within you!”
