I woke up this morning at the very unamusing time of 5.30am and I couldn’t get back to sleep.
As soon as my boyf left for work I decided to stick on a meditation. I have a YouTube playlist of my favourites and I opted for one called Visualization Techniques – A Meditation to Achieve Your Dreams by Jonathan Parker.
Parker begins by asking you to remember a time when you did something successfully and to really focus in on how that felt.
My memory took me back to my biggest acting job, when I was a lead performer in a musical and toured to some of the biggest theatres in the UK.
I visualised myself on stage singing that big finale number I had to do. I felt so proud and happy. I asked myself to pinpoint it exactly: how did it feel?
And the answer came to me exactly like this:
It felt like I was channelling God.
Now don’t get me wrong I’m not saying I was possessed lol, and I’m not saying this with any sort of religious context – I said ‘God’ but it could just as easily be ‘Universe’, ‘Source’, ‘Love’ or ‘Field of Potentiality’!
What I mean is, it felt like I was so in flow and so aligned to my higher self in that moment that love was pouring through every molecule of my being. I felt completely connected. I felt like an expression of Love, of all that is.
It felt glorious.
It felt right.
I know now that when I do anything that makes me feel that way, I am aligned to my life purpose.
