If ever there was a meditation that stole my heart this is it. This is a small extract of one of the most beautiful meditations I have ever heard - thank you Sarah Blondin for your beautiful words and calming voice, for changing my world.
Things I wish someone had told me….
I wish someone had told me when I first began my journey into a life of my own, that where I needed to begin was sitting on the floor with my eyes closed.
I wish someone had told me that my first step, the first step anyone must take, is inward.
I wish someone had told me when I felt I had nothing to offer the world, that what I first needed to do was sit down and breathe.
That all I needed to do was learn the practice of opening to and discovering the true self sitting inside of me quietly and that from there the rest would come easier.
I wish someone had told me that my true value and worth would be found not through attaining or gaining but in meeting this self.
I wish someone would have told me that finding my way to her would bring me gold and riches that no worldly things could buy.
I wish someone would have told me when I was lost and desperate for direction and support that I was really longing to meet myself, that nothing else would soothe me until I first came to touch my own inner temple of divinity.
I wish someone wold have told me that when I was swimming in a sea of lonely thoughts and diving into dark pits that my higher self was calling me to these places so I could come closer to my truth.
I wish someone would have told me I was being called to the dark under belly for great reason. That I was being called into the very centre of myself as to come closer to my root and bottomless source of light.
I wish someone had told me when I began to run, divert, distract, over consume, point fingers, over do, fight, create drama, choose everything other than love that I was running away from my own magnificence.
That I was running from it because I didn’t believe it was something I possessed because I didn’t believe in my own ability to give myself all I needed.
I wish someone had told me I was the only one who could give me what I asked from and wanted from another.
That all I would ever want, all I would ever need, all I would ever desire, all I would chase and scour the earth for was waiting there deep in the valley of my chest, that that dear ones was where I needed to start.
That there in the quiet of myself was where I would find my eternal river of wealth and value and that all I needed to get there was the breathe in my chest and the patience and willingness to understand, that I was and will always be the answer I am searching for.
There is so much more to the above meditation but I can’t begin to do justice to its wondrous power though just sharing the words.
If you are blown away by her words then Sarah’s beautiful voice will draw you in deeper and deeper. I’ve been consistently meditating everyday since the beginning of the year. It’s been a practice of mine for a number of years but I’ve never managed to do every single day until I discovered Sarah Blondin’s voice pre-xmas, now I can’t wait to meditate every single day!
