The last couple of weeks I’ve had a bit of a juggle since I’m committed to both my 40 day ego eradicating challenge and to chanting for peace. Last week I was short on time and I decided–since the only thing(s) in me that keep me from being peace are ego blocks–that the 15 minutes of the Ego Eradicator plus Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha (destroyer of obstacles) would work to fit both challenges.
This week I decided that I wanted to do both so I performed the ego eradicator, then substituted 10 minutes of the lovingkindness chant instead of the usual three minutes of mindfulness. I could feel how much the ego practice opened me up and thus the power of the chant’s energy seemed more than usual.. My heart felt radiant.
Having built all that energy, when I finished with the chant to Ganesha the radiance in my heart increased and I felt it ignite the sea of chi with fiery energy. I like putting different practices together and changing order and noting how it feels different to do things a different way.
If you have a story about your experience with chanting/praying for Collective Prayer Sundays today, comment her or on the Facebook page or write a post and both link it to this page and tag it CollPraySun.
The one piece of my “Break the Ancestor’s Spell” ceremony I haven’t posted about is the final piece, which was a last minute addition. Sindy, of bluebutterfliesandme, suggested that I use the Clearing Vows and Contracts from the Akashic Records script that she posted on Facebook. As soon as I read it I thought it should be part of the Ceremony.
I’m not sure whether it’s connected with with ARCI, but a friend of mine is an ARCI teacher and I took her first level course some years ago, in which you learn how to open your own Akashic Records. So I included the ARCI formal opening of the records first and then read the script out loud. I like the script and I feel that it will probably be something I do periodically just to be sure to keep clearing.
