Can you find the peace?
When you look at a tree you will see the beautiful blossoms. You will see the perfection of nature and beauty that resides in it. But look more closely and see those spaces between the blossoms, between the branches where the silence beckons even when the branches are swaying. The tree cannot be without the space, without the breath between each branch, between each leaf between each flower, between each petal. Each space carries the essence of Source within it and melds itself with the known, the tree itself. It is the same for you.
I talk about this concept in more depth in my podcast episode “The Blossom and the Space’. Just type in Anandi Sano podcast in the major podcast platforms. You can also use this podcast to go deep within Self
I was asked the other day if I knew where thoughts came from. To me, with the work that I do, it is actually quite a simple concept.
Thoughts are the projection of what is occurring in the layers of Self. You’re probably asking “What does she mean by that?”
If I initially explain it from the point of view of someone being present and still, where there is no thought, no rise and fall of the emotion they will be perceive any object , conversation, ineraction, circumstance from a balanced and calm state. When I look at that person there are no negative life moments in the layers of Self and the layers are flowing calmly. They will preceive a pen without any thought . It just is. The mind is still. The body is still. The energy is soft and flowing gently.
Now, if I were to give the pen to someone else, just by showing them the pen will potentially trigger the rise of dormant energetic life moments in the layers of Self. As they rise to the surface the experiences that are held in these life moments will be picked up by the mind and brought to life. In a sense the mind is the projector screen of the different life moments that are coming up through the layers. The life moments are not linear in nature. They don’t follow a time line of certain things that have negatively impacted you.
Any word, action, object , thought, sound etc can trigger a life moment that may not have anything to do with the actual event or circumstance. It could just be a similar colour, a similar look ,or maybe a similar shaped obejct that was taken from you at some point in your life.
Our layers will bring up life moments that have any sort of similarity to them. Some may seem so benign and irrelevant but our layers will bring up any life moment that it thinks is relevant.
So from just looking at a pen you could all of a sudden start feeling irritable , your mind starts racing about different things, and you start playing over in your mind what happened two months ago with a certain person. The more life moments arise, the more life moments are triggered in the layers of Self, the busier our mind becomes.
However, If we were to go energetically into the layers of Self as these life moments arose and energetically released them, the mind very quickly goes quiet and still. There is nothing to project onto the cinema screen.
As we release more and more life moments from our layers of Self we are easily able to stay in a space of peace and calm, the mind is quiet and you are in the Now. That space in a wonderful space to be.
I will talk about this some more in some of my future posts. Where the space and peace we create in our layers, creates the perfect environment for the mind to be used as tool for creativity and innovation.
Let me tell you a little story. In 2017 , five years after Source gave me the gift of this energy that runs through me I read the name that Source gave to me in a guided message. Little One.
In the guided messages Source has always referred to me as Little One. During 2017 I was repeatedly told that my name would one day have to change, to match the place where I would need to stand. I never quite knew what that meant. In 2017 a name was uttered at a meeting and someone thought it sounded like Shamu, so that became my nickname. I knew it wasn’t ‘the name’ but it stuck.
All through the period from 2012 when my gift was given from Source, and to be honest, as far back as I can remember I have alway had this vision of standing on a mountain with a monastery behind me, somewhere what I felt was around Tibet.
So at one point, when Source said that a name change was needed I started ‘looking’. I knew Little one had something to do with it so I googled Little One in Tibetan, in Sanskrit, in Japanese…nothing revealed itself. So I let it go.
On this recent trip to Bali the urgency of finding the name descended on me again. I thought it was now going to be a Sanskrit name of some sort that a priest would be able to bestow on me and so we set off and met up with a priest. He told me I could use the name Anandi meaning mother of the universe but also joyful or happy. I loved the word but it did not feel right. It wasn’t complete. Something was missing.
After we went to the see the priest my two friends and I went to dinner and as we sat and ate, the words Little One kept being repeated over and over and over again. So much so that I could not focus on the dinner conversation.
When we returned to the retreat centre I sat on my bed and listened. Little One was repeated again, this time gently and then I was told to find the meaning of Little One in Nepali, the language of Nepal.
So I typed it into my phone and up came the translation and I nearly fell off my bed. The word that came up was Sānō, with the pronunciation being Sah -noo. So close to Shamu that we had heard 2 years prior.
I was then told to find the meaning of Sānō in Latin. Up came the meaning….to heal and to cure. Again, we were stunned.
As I sat with the word a flood of memories started to unravel infront of me . Memories of times long gone , of being in the mountains, of being a Buddhist monk. It felt like home.
So now, here I sit, looking at the words Anandi Sānō and wondering what will be laid out before me if I use these names. A new name to match the frequency and vibration that has been given, to match what lies ahead. A name given by Source in order to leave the old behind and to step even more fully into what has been given, the place where I stand now for myself and others, this place of peace and presence, of teaching and healing and what is to become.
May peace flood all that is within and all that is without. Blessings
