Amma (Mata Amritanandamayi)
In working with my coach, I am reminded that our ego mind is often fearful. The ego attempts to diminish. We are either trying to be a small self or a GRANDIOSE self. The ego mind tends to exclude love.
"Sarah, love is not to be excluded. Love comes through you doll." Michael's smile beamed through the computer and I could feel his special love radiating straight into my heart.
- Do you find yourself exhausted?
- Do you find yourself over committed and under nourished?
- Do you say YES to shit you hate?
- What are you still tolerating in your life? (Yes, even toleration takes its toll- it's still energy out!)
"Sarah when we are working with our clients, we are allowing the love to pour through us. When we allow this to happen, pure essence flows through our being. We don't have to 'do' anything." A lightbulb went off for me. I can think of times where I have been out of alignment, and I find myself exhausted at the end of a session. As I notice the contrast of trying to 'make something happen,' vs. 'stepping into the flow,' I can feel the difference throughout my entire being. Goosebumps for the truth!
Michael went on to share a story about Amma, the 'Hugging Saint' from India. He said that she will travel around the globe offering compassion and hugs to the masses. She might be hugging upwards of 20 hours a day without a break of any kind.
"She is the embodiment of allowing the love and light of her source to run through her. There is no ego involved - not a trying to be grandiose, or excluding others. She is in total communion with her source."
If you find yourself exhausted, drained, or still tolerating situations and people in your life then perhaps tap into the energetic essence of Amma. Allow yourself to step into the channel of light, into your divine essence. Are you trying to do it all on your own? I like to think of our divine essence as going with the flow. You can paddle upstream and show your brawn and fortitude, but how would your life shift if you found the sweet spot of the stream and allowed yourself to be carried? How can you make more of an impact with less effort?
My beautiful friends, allow yourself to be supported and nurtured by the unique energy of love and light that is you. Step into your light and watch your life shift in miraculous ways! Be compassion in action!
