Creating Ease in Life

Creating a sense of healing ‘Teflon’, or ease, in your life helps balance and adds to feeling of spaciousness in your body.

To create this sense of Teflon, think of it as a kind of silvery substance, you’re cultivating. One of the best ways I’ve found helpful is to bless everything around you, exactly as it is. I try to do this once a day, even though I live with two cats. Probably does help with them too, though.

So standing in a particular area of your room, standing tall- at ease but not slouching at all, as in Tadasana,

Send blessings to all beings, large and small, dark and light, seen and unseen in front of you. Reflect on those beings in front of you-send blessings- to all your neighbors, animals, tree beings, especially send blessings to those you don’t like! What blessings are you giving them?

From all beings in front of you, receive blessings.

Receive blessings from all those in front of you, beings large and small, dark and light, seen and unseen, receive all their blessings exactly as they come. 

Pause. 

Then consider all the beings on your right side, send blessings to all these beings- large and small, dark and light, seen and unseen. Towards your golden path, to them send all your blessings, what your heart will contribute. After a moment, receive blessings, from all these beings large and small, dark and light, seen and unseen. receive all their blessings. 

Then, considering the field to your back, which you cannot see, but that part which creates your future from your past,

Send blessings to all beings behind you- large and small, dark and light, seen and unseen.

Send blessings to all of of these beings..

Now receive all your blessings from these beings as they always serve for your highest and greatest good,

Large and small, dark and light, seen and unseen. Receive all their blessings.

Then, send blessings to all the beings underneath you, that hold you up by your feet and measure, as you press in your steps,

send blessings to all these beings, large and small, dark and light, seen and unseen beings in the earth. Send blessings to all of these beings the gophers and snakes, denizens of the dirt. Reflect on your blessings to them- your poop and pee- does it help it or hurt?

Receive blessings from all beings underneath you

those who toil unacknowledged unseen,

Large and small, dark and light, seen and unseen, receive all their blessings.

Turn upward facing, and consider the sky above you,

To these skies and heavens, send blessings.

Send blessings to all beings above you,

Large and small, dark and light, seen and unseen, 
send blessings to all of these beings flying in the air,

From the skies above you, receive blessings.

From the beings above you receive inspiration and hope.

Receive all your blessings from all these beings, large and small, dark and light, seen and unseen, receive all your blessings

Each one of them is perfect.

To all the beings within you

All the hive minds, working together, solid reticulated organs ‘talking’ together, micro biomes and niches-

Large and small, dark and light seen and unseen,

Send blessings. To all parts of your given body, send blessings, it is exactly perfect as it is for your dharma*.

From all the beings within you, large and small, dark and light seen and unseen, receive your blessings….blessings from all the hive minds of my being, receive all your blessings. Is your body trying to talk to you?

I try to do this once a day. It seems to make things feel easier.

I also remind myself, that right here, right now, ‘I’m always in exactly the right place’ for my *dharma (path, Tao, Dao, Whateveryouwill). Keep to the path! (This helps me when I’m feeling stressed or stuck)
