Ways to create heaven on earth today

Praise five people for who they already are. It’s worth the effort when you feel what happens in you and the other. Notice if any stinginess or embarrassment comes up and breathe through it. And offer at least one ‘in person’, virtual praise just isn’t the same edge.

…………………………………………

Take a risk, open through fear and express love. There may be an impulse to offer your love or your deep presence and then fear comes in and we pull back – we choose fear over love. Breathe, trust your higher self and act. A surprise for your beloved, a kind act for a stranger, listening to a disturbed friend, letting someone give to you, singing your heart out on a street corner, starting that cool project. Endless possibilities arise. Big and small.

…………………………………………

Live as if it was your last day alive and embrace what you most dislike or resist as part of existence. Why? because they are a trap limiting your creative power and fully given love gifts.

…………………………………………

See nature all around you and in Her heart. If you are in the city look for the wildness in the weeds that push through the pavements. It’s a force, as is the heart of woman.

…………………………………………

Notice who you being right now and shower with compassion. Even if that’s a mean, cruel, biting self? Yes. The cringe away is the glue that holds it in place. Feel the cringe fully, breathe, then feel who you are being, breathe, open to knowing this is not the true you. Feel remorse, make amends, breathe. Have compassion.

…………………………………………

Revel in this raw, gritty and imperfect life. It’s what we’ve got. Plunge your hands into the earth, raise a sweat on your body, laugh or cry loudly. Welcome your failures and wounds as part of this messy human realm. In the words of Leonard Cohen  ‘There is a crack in everything, That’s how the light gets in’.

…………………………………………

Take time to enjoy a subtle pleasure and let it expand your mind. Pleasure is a good thing when fully savoured and experienced. Our mind is expanded by sensuality, becomes more open to feeling, sensing and intuiting.

…………………………………………

Don’t just smell the roses, become them. Enter their existence, bloom open as the fragrant flower. Fly with the bird, sense the wind on your wings. Look through the eyes of the person next to you, what do they see?

…………………………………………

Risk speaking your truth to serve Love. Authenticity gives another person a way to be intimate with you. Honesty for it’s own sake can be an egoic need, and harmful to others. Confession is a delicious revealing.

…………………………………………

Breathe fully and expand your sense of self to include the whole of your environment in your heart. This may be the room you are in, the house, the field, the town or city, the country, the world, the universe. Events are occurring in you.

…………………………………………

Listen to and act on Love’s wisdom, the fruit of your deepest life experience. Wisdom is the combination of knowing and acting, so to be wise we must give our deepest feminine and masculine wisdom gifts, from the essence of Love & Freedom. If you hold back on this, why?

…………………………………………

Give someone the gift of your love. We are all precious. Beloved, friend, stranger. When least expected, to be the recipient of someone’s kind and loving attention is transformative. People report that one encounter with a loving human being changed their life. They knew in that moment that life was essentially good. That could be you.

…………………………………………

Look into what you put into the space between yourself and another – is it judgements, criticism and fear or love, appreciation and curiosity? We are mostly unaware of the invisible barriers we put up and wonder why we don’t feel loved, respected, trusted, honoured. Feel into the space in and all around your physical body, breathe slowly, and let this ‘wall’ soften and relax. See who is really on the other side of this wall, their aliveness.

…………………………………………

To create heaven on earth today reveal your soft inner self to another – it inspires them to do the same and opens up a warm fertile space between you.

…………………………………………

To create heaven on earth today – explore what happens if you let go of expectations and magnify love instead. Expectations set a limit to what can be experienced instead of the spacious embrace of being fully with, breathing into and opening our hearts to what is. This can feel painful initially, like we are letting go of our true needs but it actually brings the opposite. Expectations are not the same as trusting our hearts desire.

…………………………………………

To create heaven on earth today – if you have been over’doing’ it in your life, try less ‘doing’ and more ‘being‘. Meditation, heart connection, or sensual joy and pleasure -what do you need to feel more alive?

…………………………………………

To create heaven on earth today – dedicate any challenging activity or spiritual practice (sadhana) to someone who needs love and support in their life. We can increase the amount of love in the world.
