Today’s Miracle Moment Is About Being At Home Wherever You Are…
Have you ever been around someone who seems to feel so comfortable in their skin and relaxed wherever they are? Would you like to also have that experience of feeling like wherever you go in the world, you’re at home, no matter what?
I (Marci) have had the honor of knowing some amazing people in this world, and one of them is a woman named Jody Williams. Jody is a Nobel Peace Prize winner who won the award for her work in helping ban landmines around the world.
Jody is friends with extraordinary visionaries on the planet, including His Holiness, the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. One day, when I was having lunch with Jody, I asked her, “Do you ever feel intimidated when you’re with any of the world-renowned leaders and visionaries that you meet?”
Jody answered, “No, I’m just myself, wherever I am. And if people like me, they like me. And if they don’t like me, they don’t like me.” Jody is at home within herself and wherever she is, she is comfortable.
The experience of being so comfortable in your own skin is available for all of us.
Dr. Sue is a great example of someone who feels this way too. Here’s what Dr. Sue shares about this:
About 20 years ago, I had an amazing opening in my consciousness that started me on a totally different path in my life. I awakened to this really high state of consciousness and I was me, but I wasn’t in a body and I was also completely at home.
Through this experience, I was no longer able to reference life the way that I used to, because clearly things were very different than I had ever thought they were. And yet, there was a deep sense of wellbeing and a complete sense of fulfillment. There was nowhere to go, nothing to accomplish, and nothing to become. There was nothing broken, nothing wrong, and nothing to be fixed.
The true state of all of us is the vibrational frequency of peace.
Since that experience, I’ve recognized that I am this eternal presence–and so are you and everyone on the planet. The more we identify as that presence, the more comfortable we become in life, no matter where we are and no matter what’s happening,
Underneath the limited personality that struggles to make things unfold in a certain way, there’s another version of ourselves that’s deep in our heart. The more we breathe low in our bellies, the more we can access that deeper sense of self.
By slowing our breath down, it slows the mind down too. And then the mind stops writing all those stories that make us so uncomfortable.
Home is literally where we are. The universe is within our bodies. It’s important to remember that all the time so we can share our deepest self with each other and live the life that we came here to live.
Here’s a practice for being at home wherever you are:
- First, think of a situation that you may not be particularly comfortable in. Maybe it’s a situation that intimidates you or that you feel afraid of in some way. Imagine what it would feel like to feel at home in that situation.
- Then, breathe deeply in your belly and anchor yourself in your own body. Know that you get to be home right here in your body.
Feeling at home is really part of living in the Miracles Zone.
