Today while walking through a particularly beautiful forest, watching the snow drift, shower and gently fall all around me, I was deeply visited by Our Lady of Perpetual Mercy.
Her timing is exquisite, I will say that, as so many are in need of her at this time. In witnessing all that is happening around me in the world today, and with folks far & wide, I was grateful for her arrival.
I welcomed her in with reverence and some simple ceremony and she offered an elegant practice to share with anyone who is in need... of support, rest, shelter. In need of Light. In need of Mercy.
She said if you have lost your connection to your own Light, or if it feels like it is dim or flickering, this practice is for you and She can help you with that.
She asks that you please go get a candle now, or imagine one in your beautiful creative vista. Now imagine that you see Her, Our Lady of Perpetual Mercy... however She appears to you in this moment.
I welcomed Her in with reverence and some simple ceremony and She offered an elegant practice to share with anyone who is in need... of support, rest, shelter. In need of Light. In need of Mercy. Her arrival. just long enough to transfer the Light to you and your candle. She then slowly draws apart, and invites you to admire what has been created. That the Light has now doubled, in that one small moment.
She asks you to allow this Light to soak deeply into you. Allow the Light within your being to be nourished and know that it is not alone. Allow the Light within you to see it's reflection.
She encourages us to visualize candles, light real candles, gaze on images of candlelight, watch film of candles, experiment with doing this with other humans... Light Many Candles! All of these offer the opportunity for the external flame to connect with the internal flame.
As always, I offer this humbly & encourage you to check with your own system to see if this will be helpful for you.
Wishing deep blessings on all.
