It Thinks Me. It Breathes Me. It Lives Me.

Do you feel like things are disintegrating right now? It might be in the area of finances. It might be in the area of health. Maybe, you feel challenged in your relationships. Have people you long relied upon left? Perhaps, you feel like everything you’ve worked for is no longer a viable part of you. I am going through much of this right now. The world in which I am living seems like it is crumbling and yet I am not afraid.

A few nights ago, I woke up in the middle of the night with many of the thought of a disintegrating world. I couldn’t stop my mind from going to the worst scenario. I was most definitely spinning out of control. I began to do my calming breathing and then was driven out of my bed by the voice that just said, “Meditate!”

I crept downstairs in the dark, sat in my familiar chair and began breathing and quieting my mind for about an hour. Then I began to give myself a Spiritual Mind Treatment. As I came out of the Treatment, three statements came to me: “It thinks me. It breathes me. It lives me.” What was happening?

I realized what I had always known, but was now being forced upon me: Only rely on what you cannot see. Let this deeper part of you live through you. Follow Its guidance even though it doesn’t make any worldly sense. And so, that is my path right now.

I am reminded of a story that Gregg Braden told us that was told to him by a Native American Elder. It was about an ancient drawing on a cave wall. It showed two groups of people walking on a cliff. One group had no heads and were falling off the edge of that cliff. The other group, with heads, were marching upward. The metaphor was that the group without heads did not know who they were. They had lost their identity and they fell into oblivion. The other group remembered their Divine identity.

This story makes total sense to me, and I believe that is the test right now. Do we know who we are? Do we know what we are truly capable of? Do we take our direction from within or are we tossed here and to by what we see? Are we waiting for something on the outside to let us know we are okay, or do we know deeply that we are always blessed and cared for?

It thinks me. It breathes me. It lives me. I cannot encompass these three powerful statements if I am giving way to my limited ego self. As Emerson wrote, “We are all inlets for God. We must become outlets.” This one statement signifies what is being demanded of me right now. I must totally let go of everything I thought of as “should be,” and allow something new to be born. New ideas cannot be born from a mind that is trying to recreate the past. As Raymond Charles Barker put it, “It is an immaculate conception.”

Much is happening in my own world to point me in this direction. In fact, I am being forced to the edge of the mountain. Will I keep my head (Godself) firmly attached and let go, or will I simply forget who I am and fall into oblivion? The answer is obvious to me. I am prayed up for times like these. Many are talking about “The Shift.” For me, it is a radical shift in consciousness from duality to unity with our Divine Nature and each other. I am most definitely breaking through a “terror barrier,” as Bob Proctor would call it; however, my intuition and guidance tells me I am safe to do so.

As we get ready to celebrate Mother’s Day, it is the perfect time to delve deeply into our Divine Nature, our True Nature and allow it to think us, breathe us and live us and most importantly Love through us.

Love and Aloha,

PS: Here is a recent review on Amazon of my book, “What Do I Need to Know?”

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-Written and insightfulReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on May 8, 2023

“What Do I Need to Know” is a comprehensive, wide-ranging, and thought-provoking collection of essays/slash mediations that is meant to be digested over time, in short but far-from-superficial nuggets. The individual essays build on each other but have power embedded within each one. While reading the essays, on more than one occasion, I stopped, realized I’d never examined my thoughts from the angle presented by Andriello within the book, and felt my mind shift. That is what this sort of book is all about. Rita Andriello’s wisdom is a genuine gift.”
