As humans, we often torment ourselves. We easily slip into the “victim” mode and trudge through our miseries alone or with little to no help. And yet, all around us are opportunities and people who are willing to share grace with us, to offer us kindness, service, support, and love.
We are flawed humans, but grace comes to us anyway. We are loved even when we have harmed or forgotten who we are. We are forgiven by many, even when we have wronged or hurt them.
And just as grace falls into our hands, we also give grace to others. We forgive the unforgivable acts. We offer help even when the receiver has hurt or harmed us. We offer because, deep down, we know we are each connected. We know deep down that we have walked the same path and needed the same forgiveness or help. We know deep down, we are not that different from one another.
Grace also comes without attachments. We help because it’s the right thing to do and because it contributes to the more abundant goodness of humanity. When we can offer some kindness to those around us and expect nothing in return, we move into the heart-centered space where our egos are in the silent backdrop and no longer the major influencer.
Five Ways to Share & Accept Grace
Begin today by accepting grace and allowing it to flow freely from your spirit. Offer your heart to the world, and watch your world begin to flourish.
Giving What We Have
Guided Shamanic Meditation
Wayne Dyer said, “You cannot give to others that which you do not have inside, become an instrument of love”. Sometimes we forget how powerful, grounded, creative, loving, authentic, and connected we are. During this guided meditation Dakota leads you through each chakra one at a time, to unearth the good and wonderful pieces of ourselves and envision how we can bring that into the world around you.
