When those of us on our spiritual journey consciously close our day…… we are still seeking Light.
We are still in pursuit of adopting the positive that benefits not only ourselves, but indeed for the benefit of all mankind ….. spiritual commitment that transcends the ordinary ego and worldly, to that which is of true value for spiritual progress.
As earthly night approaches consider adapting these effective evening routines that not only set the tone for our evening rest and rejuvenation, but also for the dawning of the day to come.
Make it your intent to feel good before sleep
Your emotions help determine the process of continuous creation in your reality ….. so an evening practice that helps you feel good, do good and Be good before bed bleeds into the night, the next morning and into your reality.
Set aside some wind down time ….. about 30 minutes before bed.
Silence and Meditation
Contact Universal Life Energy, the Supreme Universal Power, to help flow in the natural relaxing energies of our earthly life. Include an evening Relaxation and Silence practice to clear the mind and reconnect with your inner peace.
From Silence enter a few minutes of Meditation as described in Lesson 19 of 27 Lessons in Science of Being to “wipe away the discordant films which obscure expression of the Soul’s higher qualities:”
“Drown your Conscious Self in the crystal Light of your Inner Self, allowing it to dissolve from you the irritating crust of disharmonious memories and experiences….Understand it as the Inexhaustible Spring of its manifestations in you as Life, Mind, Law (Truth) and Love.”
Be a Channel for Healing
We do not have to be fully enlightened beings to be a channel for transmitting Universal Life Energy as in this practice to help heal the world: Giving Healing Energy to the World.
As you project it out to others and the world, the Universal Power flows from one being to another, connecting everyone and everything, and generating an increasingly stronger flow of the healing fire! Yet, remember do not use your own will power, rather the Will of the Eternal will do what is harmonious.
Declarations of Truth
This practice is of prime importance to me as it elevates all of my being, aligning with Truth and Love before drifting off to sleep. I am in a happy place mentally and emotionally, and I sleep very well and am refreshed in the mornings.
While lying in bed taking the Star Position and just before drifting off to sleep make these Declarations of Truth from the spark of Unconditional Love in your Heart as shared by The Teacher, Svetozar:
“Father, Thou art inspiring me on the Spiritual Plane.
Thou art guiding me on the mental plane.
Thou art sustaining and protecting me on the material plane.
I am Thy individualized projection into Thy own Eternal substance.
Indissolubly connected with Thee, manifesting all Thy qualities and Powers.” Thank You.
Avoid excessiveness and techno
Avoid large meals or excessive workouts in the evenings. If your body is still dealing with digesting lots of food or your muscles still experiencing tension, the mind stays active too!
Scrolling the newsfeed or reading messages on our smart devices before sleep keeps our brains alert. Shutting down smart devices, computers and televisions early evening helps eliminate blue light that interferes with the production of melatonin, a sleep hormone.
I have found that if I sit at my computer screen and write into the night that have a difficult time getting my brain to calm down and relax. The thinking mind takes over and just wants to think some more! I have to turn off the computer early evening, then I begin to align with the natural approaching night cycle.
But if you do find your mind racing when in bed there are some things you can do:
1) Focus on your breathing. Placing your right hand on your chest over your heart and the other cupped up consciously receiving Universal Life Energy. Breathe in and exhale slowly. Continue slow breathing as you allow relaxing.
2) Gently acknowledge what you are grateful for.
I avoid evening reviews because I’ve found that thinking about the past can keep me circling in thoughts about how I could have done better. Guilt, regret and self condemnation can subtly creep in primarily because the ego recognizes the Law of Polarity as opposite pairs. Those energies are not helpful for creating your reality, especially before going to sleep.
Whereas, focusing on gratitude lifts our emotions, keeping us in the moment and reconnecting with happiness within that is already there.
3) Try some soothing sounds to drift off to, like gentle nature sounds.
IN the hope You find these practices help You align with your Inner, True Self, PortiaSLB
