What to Do with Limiting Patterns

You’re finally getting it! You’re finally realizing how beautiful, how holy you are! You are a sacred vessel, a precious reed for the melody of the universe to be heard.

And as you allow the heart to open wide, the exquisite note that is uniquely you can come forth, gracefully flowing like golden joy.

Ahh, this holy river of YOU is always there, blocked perhaps by pestering patterns that like to take on your identity and make you think you are less than holy.

You are the creative energy of life!

Sometimes those habits want to hold fast! And they might need your help; they need tender love and a reminder – they are not who you are! You can let them know – “You are only a pattern! Who I am is more essential than this!”

Because as a unique expression of Creation, as an essential thread in the fabric of the cosmos, your sacred purpose is this: to more fully embody and bring to life the exquisite rhythm that is YOU.

What can you do to hear this rhythm more clearly? Creation Meditation is a practice that does just this. First create space inside by resting your attention on the breath; then, give outer expression to the inner experience.

Let the river of you flow! Oh, and you’ll know when you’re embodying your unique expression because it will be exciting and blissful and meaningful! It will be the wild ride of your authentic nature.

“There is a vitality…
a quickening that is translated through you into action,
and because there is only one of you in all of time,
this expression is unique.
And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium
and it will be lost.
The world will not have it.
It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable
nor how it compares with other expressions.
It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly,
to keep the channel open.”

– Agnes de Mille
