My intention for this article is to inspire you to become more aware of your inherent powers within your exquisite self to live a life of joy and rapture.
You were never created to enter the Sacred Earth to feel lost, victimized or abused in any way. You were created to experience the powers you hold within and to live a life in complete rapture and joy.
One of the greatest gifts in my life has been to meet a special person who lived his life of rapture. This man had few material possessions and by most Western standards we would likely think he had little to be joyful about, let alone experience rapture in life.
The sadness in this is not the lack of materialistic things, but that many have so much and still cannot live life with rapture. I believe we have lost our power to believe and imagine life could be filled with rapture on a day to day basis.
Definition of Rapture
In the dictionary rapture is defined as mental transport; ecstatic delight; in vehement pleasure or the expression of it; be enthusiastic or talk enthusiastically; the act of transporting a person to from one place to another; in ecstasy.
I am going to use this definition to show you how your Sacred Space can assist you in feeling rapture within and without!
Power of Imagination
As the definition states one needs first of all mental transport.
This is the inner work you must perform and this requires using your imagination to assist you in creating a new picture and new thoughts in your mind.
This is one of the God-given tools you have to create your life and yet few adults will believe this. Imagining has been left to the world of children and as adults we don’t believe in the ability to imagine something into reality, however, this is very possible and if you let a child teach you, perhaps you will be able to bring this art back into greater expression.
You must without a doubt begin the process of creating a new picture in your mind if you truly desire new experiences in your life – this is where change begins first. Be aware though that if you desire something that is discordant you will bear the effects of that thought.
It is best to look at the aspects of life that you desire a change in. I will list these in the order that I see as most prevalent based on my experience with people and their Sacred Spaces.
These three are the most important and from this come desired changes in:
- Inner knowledge
- Helpful people
Do you have the courage to imagine your body as healthy or can you only visualize it aging and deteriorating?
Can you imagine yourself with abundance – or can you only imagine the impossibility of abundance? (Visualizing only what bank reports and news briefs show you).
Can you imagine yourself in loving relationships – not talking about others, criticizing, judging or condemning others?
Can you imagine loving yourself – telling yourself you are beautiful, joyful, gifted, worthy, talented and perfect?
Can you imagine a perfect life and world? We have actually been taught this is not possible and yet we utter the Sacred words …”on earth as it is heaven.”
Can you imagine perfection on earth? Even if there is not perfection in front of us if you can imagine it, things will always change for the better!
The Law of Motion
The definition of rapture states there needs to be great pleasure in imagining what you desire. This means there is no doubt, fear or disbelief in a new possibility.
As humans we have created so much drama around the loneliness, the wounded and the limitedness in life that it can be challenging to imagine life being lived in joy and rapture
It is important to know that life is based on Universal Law and one of these laws is the law of motion. You need a greater or equal force to change the direction of something.
So if health is your biggest issue you must begin to imagine a new picture about your health and speak a new expression of your condition that is opposite of what you have been thinking or imagining.
Some people have literally thought a disease into their bodies, while others have literally thought or imagined a disease out of their body. One is no less possible to create than the other as you are using the same tools to create the circumstances.
Expressing with Pleasure
The next step is to express what you imagine with great pleasure – vehement pleasure and with ecstasy.
Your spaces now become powerful tools as a canvas for you to express what you imagine. Think about what objects, pictures, colors, textures, or images you have in your home that give you the feeling of what you are desiring and then surround yourself or express this in your space.
Expressing what you imagine outwardly takes the image to a greater level of manifestation. If you want love in your life you are going to have to surround yourself with images, colors, pictures and objects that make you feel and think that you are loved so you can draw this into your life.
For example if you have in your space pictures of people who don’t make you feel loved or if the images bring up disturbing memories, remove those from your space for the time being.
If you have objects from people who remind you of negative things or if there is no attachment to things let go of these so that what you desire can come forth.
Walk around your space and really look at what you have displayed and what you use and ask how it makes you feel, what thoughts come to the surface and then you must act.
Decorate, clear out, replace broken for better, brighten where there is wear and dullness. You don’t have to spend lots of money to make these changes and they can bring powerful results for you.
Practice imagining what you desire daily – especially in the morning and before going to bed. Bedrooms become powerful spaces to assist you in changing your life – that is why a bedroom should be one of your most Sacred, private and peace filled rooms in your home.
Letting Go of Fear of the Past
Adults put their energy most often into doubt, fear, and stay stuck on past experiences instead of imaging something new.
The greatest challenge is being able to let go of these feelings. Many people say they want things to change, but they also want everything to stay the same while they do it.
Nothing will change then because the law of motion is actually in neutral. If there is one thing I see a big void in – it is trust! Humans do not trust life very well. They imagine everything to be hard, a struggle, limiting, painful, and so they create it in their life and in our world.
If everyone woke up and went to bed and spent time during the day imagining the earth and people living in it healthy, whole, at peace, and not in danger we would be well on our way to creating a much nicer place to live – maybe even a heaven on earth. Can you imagine that!
Extending Your Imagination
Once you begin the journey of imagining your life and home in a new way, extend this imagining to the earth environment.
Imagine her green, lush with flora and fauna, colorful, pure, with crystal clear waters and send her love.
Believe it or not you are giving the Earth a huge gift with these thoughts and imaginations. You are the only species that has been given free will and only you can decide if you are ready to let go of imagining the old dramas that keep us away from experiencing rapture in life.
Can you turn on your tap and experience rapture with the water energy?
Can you feel the sun on your body and experience rapture?
Can you be with other people and experience the rapture of life?
What can you imagine?
As you practice these methods I would love to hear your personal experiences with imagination, joy and rapture!
