There’s a guided meditation recording* I listen to when I can’t fall asleep. Whether restless with joyful anticipation or caught in a loop of angst, the voice and words of this good guide almost always lead me into peaceful slumber. Do you have one like this? It can be helpful to have someone else’s soothing voice to which we can surrender.

Truth be told, I’ve probably listened to this recording over a hundred times. It was my number one help and stay during a dark night of the soul many years ago.

The reason I mention how often I’ve listened to it is because while playing it late last night I heard something I have never heard before, or rather, I heard a particular statement in a way I’d never heard it before.

After stepping the listener through a detailed relaxation of body, mind, and spirit, the guide offers a period of silence. This silent time gives you a chance to anchor and integrate this state of deep peace.

Last night, I fell asleep during the basic relaxation instructions. I woke up just in time to hear the final command leading into the period of silence:

 

“Until you hear my voice again, relax.”

 

What I heard on this 100-plus time of listening was not the guide, but a message through her from The Divine All-That-Is.  I heard the words like a final instruction that was given as my soul embarked on this journey in human form to play in time and space.  In the dark night came the calming whisper:

 

“Until you hear my voice again, relax.”

 

Relax on this journey.  In the midst of the joys and sadness, let relaxation be your home base, your balance point where you rest, gently holding the totality of your experience.

Relax because you have faith that life happens for you, not to you. Relax because all is unfolding as it should. Relax because you are surely guided and loved and your good comes from everywhere and everyone.

 

“Until you return and hear my voice again, relax.”

 

Listen anew to spoken words.  Listen for Divine Messages meant especially for YOU!

 

Peace and ease, Dear Ones,

Signature-Odette
