“Mary our Mother is always with us, closer to us than our own jugular vein,
more intimately interwoven with our being than our own breath, always
holding us in infinite love to her heart, always trying to inspire us into our deepest,
calmest, and finest selves. Waking up to the miracle of this all-enfolding
passionate concern from the Mother of the Universe is the most
wonderful thing that can happen to anyone in this life and the entry
into the conscious human divine childhood that
awaits all true lovers of the Mother.
“Our tragedy is that we are so rarely open to the one who is
always open to us, so rarely vulnerable to the one whose always-open heart
is so vulnerable to our pain and difficulties, so rarely awake to the
messages that are always arising out of her silence.
This is why learning to ‘inspire’ ourselves is so important.
A Christian saint, Bede Griffiths, once said to me,
‘What is essential is to keep the heart always open to beauty, for she is beauty.’
What could be harder in an age like ours?
And yet, it is just because our age is so harsh and
brutal that it is more than ever essential to create around us,
in our homes and offices and meeting places, a sacred environment.
To do so is to awaken the poet in each of us,
the poet and the lover of life and beauty. –
Andrew Harvey, Mary’s Vineyard
The suggested practise for Day Thirteen
Depending on how much time you have for meditation and
spiritual practise you can make the Sacred Heart Diksha meditation a part of your
daily practise or the only meditation for a few days.
Sacred Heart of Mother Mary Meditation
After having received the Diksha into your energy, follow up for the next 7 days daily
and continue regularly with this specific meditation to deepen the energies
and whenever you feel in need of Her Presence, Grace and Peace.
Sit comfortably and become aware of your breath.
Be aware of your natural rhythm of breathing and do not control or manipulate the breath.
Keep the focus on the breath for a while till you feel grounded and centered.
Bring your focus inward and on your physical heart.
You can also focus on the chest area or slightly to the right of the heart.
Set the intent through saying the following words :
By the Grace of Mother Mary, Divine Mother of All,
I have received the Sacred Heart Diksha.
I now immerse myself and my consciousness deeply into the Presence
and allow myself to receive the complete healing.
Thank you thank you thank you and so be it.
Then focus on surrendering the personal self.
As you turn your attention inwards, focus on the heart chakra
and continue to breath normally.
Immerse yourself deeper and deeper, more and more inward, consciously renouncing
your senses and your attachment to the personal self
and your life and all its activities and objects.
Take it slowly.
Allow the process to take place in its own time.
Keep on focusing on bringing the attention back to the physical heart
and renouncing. You may use the mantra as follows :
I renounce my self, I renounce my all
I renounce, I renounce all to you.
Or you can create your own mantra or prayer. The focus here is to surrender, to renounce, to sacrifice and to let go of. In the beginning, the mind may resist, but with practise this will become easier and more effortless.
Should strong emotions and tears follow,
allow these to flow and then bring the focus and awareness
back to your breath, then your heart, and then return fully
to your body.
You can close the energy with a prayer or with a simple
‘thank you thank you thank you and so it is’
Step out into your day and into your life knowing
that you are truly married to the Divine and that you have the
power to receive infinite love and to become whole.
Holy does not mean perfect or saintly, but someone who has been healed.
blessings to you
with love for Her to you
