Hon Sha Za Sho Nen (a Reiki greeting meaning, the Divine within me recognizes the Divine within you)…. 

Sherlock Holmes’s panacea may have been a 7% solution, but anyone who spends any time with me knows about the 51%. We are human and Divine all at the same time, and we might as well give up being 100%, because we are partly both. We just strive to be 51% aligned with our Divine Being and be willing to embrace the rest of how we are at any given moment.

This last week was very challenging for me. The kind of week where things just did not seem to go smoothly in some regards, but all was good and loving in other ways. I struggled to find that place of peace in heart and mind, knowing and feeling when I was just shy of the 51%. I would step over the threshold and my heart would soften and open and I would know and feel all was well, I was completely taken care of….and then I would again slip under the wire.

At times like these, knowing I am part of the whole, part of All that Is, that my true nature, my Higher Self, is loving, peaceful, abundant in everything I could need, I ask my angels and guides for help. I imagine my Higher Self and merge with her. I allow myself to be infused with the loving energy I always am, but my human sometimes forgets. And I spoke silently to the Higher Selves of those involved in my issues, and gave up whatever I was holding onto that felt glitchy and unsmooth. I surrendered all I was doing to interrupt my flow of good feeling and asked for help….and received it. I let go.

I woke up Sunday morning and I was over the 51%….I felt the peace and equanimity of my True Self.  Life was still messy, there were things to be resolved, but I could feel the shift. How does the shift into the 51% happen? It’s always the same, no matter what the details are: I was just willing….willing to be uncomfortable, willing to embrace all that was going on, willing to be sad, willing to be wherever I was, willing to surrender whatever I was holding onto, willing to ask for and receive help and guidance and willing to trust in that process to bring me into alignment with the flow of peace and love that I inherently am.

Yogi Bhajan said:

“If you want to learn something, read about it. If you want to understand something, write about it. If you want to master something, teach it.”

This is why I teach about the 51% and Love. And I know it will be a lifelong journey.
