For the first time in a few weeks the muscles around my eyes and deep in my jaw yanked away a good bit of sleep. I tried to do the chanting for the next person on my list (living, so no name) but I find when I’m really exhausted it’s very hard to sustain any kind of focus. I did chant both times but didn’t feel much impact other than the struggle to stay awake.
I did note that while my issues with this person run very deep I can’t recall that I’ve ever initiated any kind of forgiveness process. Simultaneously I felt that this is overdue and possibly that I’m not completely ready to do it.
Still, at one point each time I felt a higher self to higher self connection and that on that level there was great appreciation for the chanting. Now I’m on the fence about whether to continue on to the ceremony tonight or to try chanting again–hopefully with more focus.
On another note, I am saddened to hear that Ajaytao of Ajaytao 2010 has passed away. I’ll miss seeing all those lovely photos in my reader every day. RIP Ajay…
