This is one of the very simple practices that can also be quite transformative.
It’s a practice that opens to surrender. And it’s a reminder that all already belongs to the divine.
In reality, there is nothing to give to the divine because it already belongs to and is the divine. But we don’t know that, or parts of us still in separation consciousness don’t know it, so it can be very helpful to do this practice. It helps us reorient to reality in yet another way.
It helps more of us to open to the divine, and reorient with reality.
An additional benefit: noticing what in me is not aligned with giving it all over to the divine
One of the benefits of most spiritual practices is that we get to see more clearly the parts of us not quite aligned with it. When I do this practice, is there something in me that’s uncomfortable with it? That wants to hold onto the illusion of separateness and control?
If so, that’s completely natural and understandable.
I can notice this part of me. The fear behind it. The wish for control in order to protect me and deal with the fear.
I can say: Thank you for protecting me. Thank you for your love for me. I love you.
I can relate to this part of me with some understanding, kindness, and even love. It comes from love, and seeing that makes it easier for me to find love for it. All of this helps it relax and feel safer.
I can also explore this scared protective part through dialog or inquiry, I can reorient to it through tonglen or ho’oponopno, and I can help heal what’s behind it through a variety of approaches – in my case and these days mostly Vortex Healing.
