Escape the wet Wisconsin spring weather! Bring your family and friends to the Spirit Fair at the Atriumthis Saturday May 17th from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Admission is free and there will be many superb readers and vendors, as well as workshops.

Eleven things come to us naturally: breathing, eating, drinking, pissing, shitting, moving, resting, sleeping, waking, dreaming, and vocalizing. The twelfth thing, which will free us, is to cultivate awareness in which we are doing none of the other eleven things. ~Hilarion

Our bodily functions usually rule us. We eat when we’re hungry; we drink when we’re thirsty. We breathe without conscious thought. We sleep and wake in cycles. We eliminate regularly,too. If we don’t tend to our bodily needs, we’re miserable.
Our body houses our physical mind, which acts as a unit of storage and a point of focus for our free will. Our body also houses our sharing within—our conscious interface with the divine. As the home for an individuated piece of divine consciousness, our body is a temple. It’s important to treat it with loving care and respect.
However, if we tend only to our body’s needs and desires, we lose sight of our reason for being. Our purpose is to allow divine interconnected consciousness—the sharing—to experience itself in human form. We do this best when we allow the divine some conscious participation in our life, when we perceive life through both physical mind and sharing within.
For many of us, this conjoined perception is difficult, sporadic, and usually involuntary, because we don’t know how to engage consciously with the divine at will. Until we learn how to connect with the sharing intentionally, we will struggle with melding bodily and divine awareness.
Practice of connection with the sharing begins by allowing awareness of the body to recede, creating deliberate house room for the divine. There are numerous ways to achieve temporary relaxation of separate identity: meditation, prayer, gazing at mandalas, and walking labyrinths are just a few.
The important thing is to give the physical mind and body a break, by letting them recede from awareness briefly. In doing so, we allow ourselves to remember our sacred origin and identity, as part of a divine interconnected whole. When we return our consciousness back to our body after this perceptual pause, we will do so feeling whole and balanced and with an understanding of the right relationship between spiritual and material. Clickhere to learn how to put this into practice.

Reiki sharing will be held on Friday June 6th. Create balance for yourself and others through Reiki. If you are attuned to at least Reiki I, you are welcome to attend and give and receive Reiki. If you have not attended a Reiki sharing in a while, this is a great time to get back in the swing.
