One day I simply found it, that stillness, that deep peace, that serenity that takes you deep within to the Green Nothingness, the Emptiness That Holds Everything and lets you simply be there.
And I understood that anchoring serenity within yourself is where we are to begin to change our vibration, to raise our vibration, to send our light out to join with other light vibrations in order to heal our planet.
It begins with the serenity within.
I found immediate inner serenity with the help of a crystal wand
I have many crystals that I’ve collected over the last 50 years – 160 or so. A few years ago, I learned a very elaborate process to create a shamanic “altar”. My altar overflowed into the living room of my apartment. As I identified more and more “special” rocks, one tray of specially chosen crystals eventually ended up in a pretty container on the floor along with my drums and rain sticks and other members of my spiritual practice.
I was playing a game on my iPad and watching TV when a very loud inner voice said, “Look down!”. I did and there was this small collection of crystals and shells and my eyes went to one wand. The message was clear and instantaneous and loud: “Pick me up!”
So I reached down and picked her up and found I couldn’t let go of the crystal for a very long time. I didn’t stop to experience her at that moment but I also did not put her down. I continued to play my game and watch TV and kept the crystal in my hand – for maybe an hour. Then I put it on an end table and did other things.
The next day, when it was time to journey, I received a very clear message. “Get the wand.” I did, and that’s when I experienced deep, deep, deep serenity, a contentedness, a being-ness, a feeling of being cared for and loved and protected. It was a serenity that I had never experienced before. I simply sat and experienced the gift. Eventually, I journeyed for the message of the crystal wand and among other things I was told that the first step in raising our vibration is to find, experience and cultivate deep, deep, serenity within.
For me, that means to go within and listen and feel and be present with whatever shows up. As I held the crystal wand, I felt a powerful and all-encompassing sense of serenity that stilled my body and took me deep within.
And I knew that cultivating this all-encompassing, ever-deepening feeling of serenity was the cornerstone of my spiritual practice and my desire to work in the invisible world.
This feeling of serenity is not about being tired, or sleepy, or relaxed. It’s about feeling centered and serene and at peace. And very, very present. Content. No striving. Just conscious being. At peace. Still. Aware. Vibrating in harmony. Serenity is an experience of the entire body.
Anchor serenity into your life
In order to anchor this feeling of serenity, to establish it, I need to practice it. This has taken two forms. My personal daily experience with the Serenity Crystal Wand, and the development of a practice, a sequence, a physical series that brings me into this remarkable place of serenity. It’s a work in progress and I will share it with you when it’s completely revealed to me.
Although my desire is to help the world, I have to first find not just peace within, but deep, tranquil serenity. Serenity, like the serene, unfolding cycles of nature. Becoming attuned to the energy of the messages of the elements. Being attuned to my own body and life cycle. That means I am to listen and feel and cultivate stillness.
My first experience with this deep profound serenity was mid-day, right before I began a shamanic journey. As I develop the physical movements that help me establish serenity in my body, and add it to my morning spiritual practice, I find it creates a flowing transition into my work choices for the day. I will also use this cultivation of serenity as a transition at the end of the day, perhaps turning and watching the sunset and repeating the sequence of physical and visualization practices that are evolving.
Begin now to take deliberate pauses to identify serenity and bring it into your state of being.
Use serenity to raise your vibration
I’ve come to understand that our work as transformational thinkers is to raise our personal vibration and then join that vibration with others who are doing the same. That’s how we raise the collective consciousness. Each day in my spiritual practice, I send energy out to those fellow transformation thinkers and holders of the inner flame so that they may know there are many of us doing this work. Now I will also send them serenity.
First yourself – then others
Sharing serenity begins with cultivating it for ourselves.
There’s a natural tendency for things to be in harmony. I have to find that serenity within me and begin to radiate it out. That will help all around me to find and feel the serenity in themselves. Like a flame of a candle shining out to all consciousness, holding out hope and inspiration and connection. We want to experience the serenity of deep alignment with the energy of our cosmos.
My work with my crystal wand of serenity has deepened. She will teach me to find the serenity in myself and to use that as my foundation for my life.
Simply ask to experience serenity when you meditate and allow it to embrace you. It will come in many forms. Explore them all.
