Spirit came a-calling a few months back and regularly woke me up before the birds with incessant chatter about offering a 40 day practice. Whether you call it a practice, a challenge or a sadhana depends on your point of view, and I suppose, your intention. And so I began to dangle a carrot on my YouTube channel to see who may be interested. It would be a big commitment offering a 40 day program, showing up everyday with enthusiasm and content worthy of a program like this, I thought. And so, I began to make notes in the wee hours of the morning as spirit rattled on:
Everyday we will:
Whether you join me or not, I am doing this for you
I am dedicating this 40 day sadhana to every soul who, for one reason or another, is unable to participate
This transformation is for you
And if per chance you happen to join me, will you do this for yourSELF or for
your neighbour with MS
your daughter who struggles with depression
your alcoholic brother
your friend who hasn't lived since the death of her son
George Floyd or Rosa Parks
all those souls who cannot find a voice
the in-law you've never been able to forgive
that little girl who was not allowed to get angry
the little boy who was not allowed to cry
Right now, right here, bring to mind one soul to whom you could dedicate a 40 day transformation Close your eyes and see their face
Fill your mind with their spirit and let them know that you would do this for them
Because you want to heal
Because you care
Because you feel deeply
Because your healing is intwined with those whose pain you feel
See the face of a soul you could dedicate your practice to
Hold their hands
Hold their heart
Breathe and look into their eyes and say
I am sorry
Please forgive me
I love you
They are saying it back to you
I am sorry
Please forgive me
I love you
Are you ready?
This morning I am awoken again. Spirit is persistent. I get up and light a candle. My mala is buried under the covers. I reflect for a while on my own resistance to a regular practice and how I have cherry-picked what I am willing to do on a regular basis. I adjust my seat and begin my mantra practice. Then quiet - but not for long. Spirit is back on me about the 40 day practice so I find my phone and write some more:
Are you ready for
40 days of connection
40 days of movement
40 days of breath
40 days of feeling
40 days of inspiration
40 days of restoration
40 days of listening
40 days of laughing
40 days of crying
40 days of silence
Are you ready to commit to forty daily 90 - 120 minute sessions on zoom?
Will you try to attend in person most days?
If you are unable, will you actively participate as you watch the recording?
WHY? Isn't that the question? Why in the world would you do this?
I'm guessing that your nervous system could use an overhaul. It's time to check under the hood, change the oil, refill the fluids, replace the filters, replace some bearings, grind a few parts down . . . you get the picture.
If your nervous system was operating efficiently, you wouldn't be feeling the way you are. You would feel more vital, you would respond rather than react, you'd sleep better, you'd smile more . . . you'd like yourself.
IF YOU ARE BRAVE ENOUGH TO OPEN YOUR HOOD, I AM WILLING TO PLACE THE TOOLS IN YOUR HANDS AND TEACH YOU HOW TO USE THEM.
IF YOU WILL WALK WITH ME FOR 40 DAYS, I PROMISE THAT YOU WILL FEEL A WHOLE LOT WORSE AT FIRST AND THEN, THEN THE SPARKLE WILL BEGIN TO EMERGE . . .
IF YOU CAN PLACE YOUR TRUST IN ME AND AN EQUAL AMOUNT OF LOVE IN YOURSELF, YOU COULD SHIFT A WHOLE LOT MORE THAN RESTLESS NIGHTS OR A FROWN THAT JUST WON'T TURN UPSIDE DOWN.
Here is The Plan:
(I say plan loosely because spirit will make adjustments accordingly.)
• Meet same time, same place everyday on zoom (or watch the recording).
• Move the body for 30 minutes.
• Practice breathing.
• Learn to still the mental chatter through guided meditation practices.
• Share, laugh and cry.
• Reflect and journal.
