Meditation: Support Your Connection to Self

May this meditation support your connection to Self…

May the eyes of the human heart be open …  

May the power of love prevail…  

May the hearts be stirred with compassion and truth… 

May the dead of the past be healed, so the children of today can live 

May the cries of the past be understood, so the cries of the today be heard 

May the bloodshed of the past be forgiven, so the bloodshed of today could stop 

May we find the courage to choose to listen and be listened to, so silence could be replaced with serenity 

May the conscious of today heal generational trauma, unburden lineages, and may they choose “this ends with me today” , so the deafening sirens could rest, the shattering blasts could cease, and the songs of migrating birds could return 

May we all find the courage to heal from the fires that destroyed the past and the fires that are destroying the present, and may the fire itself be liberated from the state of destruction it was forced into and be restored into its original state of providence, warmth and safety 

May we have the grace of space within us to hold polarities, and may we finally see we’re all frantically striving to protect one thing; the right to live with dignity 

May our parts learn to co-exist, so systems flourish, lands turn green, skies get clear 

and children feel safe to live, to play, to grow 

May the pain be healed, and may we find peace within, so we could allow it without.
