Claim Your Gift and Come Home

by Guru Rattana, Ph.D. - Issue #142 - December 16, 2007

Each human life is rich, complex and elegant.

Within each of us are all the powers and the wisdom of the Universe.

We are each Gods highest experiment of being ME

Each of our lives is about initiating the small me into the consciousness of the

expanded ME

gracefully expanding from our personality into our Soul.

Self-initiation is a series of tests whereby we learn to unravel the mysteries of life.

Our foremost task is to align our body, mind and emotions with the universal

vibration of peace and love.

For the Universe rewards us according to our internal state of affairs.

When we are aligned and vibrate in unison with the Universe, the cosmos

easily and effortlessly hears our prayers and computes our requests.

Connected to Source, we are supported and propelled forward on our destiny path.

The secret is to delight in being who we are - to celebrate the ecstasy of our soul each step of the way.

The key is to want what we already have.

The formula is to open ourselves up to receive what is already ours.

Our touchstone is our willingness to live the destiny written on our forehead.

Now is the time. Each precious moment is an opening

to let go of our pain and struggle

to joyfully reconnect with our soul

to rejoice in the company of other divine beings and

to return home once again.

We ask, how do we find our way home? The answers resonate within our hearts.

Clear the way for your soul's journey on your destiny path

by renouncing your fears and frivolous preoccupations

by abandoning entanglements that cause emotional pain and chaos

by releasing your resistance to the expression of your own perfection.

Allow your body and all our chakras to freely vibrate with the symphony of the


Choose to follow the path of your heart in every thought, communication and


In your heart feel the presence of Divine love and with honor you will return to your true home. Gently allow yourself

to open your heart to consciously reconnect with the Divine Mother

to match your vibration with the vibration of Her universal love

to go deeply within and free yourself from all external attachments

to attach yourself only to the Name of the Divine and the reality of your soul.

Anchor in these feelings by using nature and the precious gifts of life as your touchstones.

As the ocean cleanses the beach

let the silent sound of the infinite

quiet your inner turmoil.

As the lullaby calms the baby

invite the gentle caress of the Divine Mother

to bring harmony to your emotions.

As a pillar supports a palace

feel the energy in your spine

be the primal pillar of your bodythe temple of your soul.

As a lamp gives light to darkness

feel the warm sun

fill your heart with joy and contentment.

As the stars decorate the sky

allow the beauty of your spirit

to be the glowing ornament in your aura.

By focusing totally on yourself, your energy, your feelings, and your heart,

gather and claim the special gifts that only you can give.

Load your gifts on your vehicle called "MY LIFE.

In your minds eye, see yourself

setting out with other seekers on your path

gracefully sharing your gifts along the way

blessing and being blessed by everyone you meet.

Your face is radiating love for all to see.

Your soul is glowing at the divine portal.

Rare are those persons who engage in the trade of their own precious gifts.

It is in sharing your gifts

that you receive your rewards.

It is in offering your gifts

that you obtain grace.

It is in living your gifts

that you partake in the celebration of life.

It is in gratitude for your gifts

that you find your way home.

It is in realizing that your gift is the gift of SELF

that your self-initiation is complete

that the destiny on your forehead is recorded forever.

May the long time sun shine upon you.

All love surround you.

And the pure light within you, guide your way home.
