On September 21, 2018, I attended a gathering for the World Peace Day Meditation with a few people at Sandy Bottoms Nature Park (https://hampton.gov/142/Sandy-Bottom-Nature-Park). Some people I already knew, some I just met. One of the new people, I’ll call her “Mary”, unfortunately, was way beyond peace within herself. I felt so bad for this little girl (21 yrs old or so) because she just appeared so lost. She was new to the area and like most people was reaching out to find solace through meditation and hopefully new-found friends. She had found out about the meditation from Meet Up; an app that people use to meet people with similar likes. This little girl just broke down in my arms and started crying when I was talking with her. Part of the meditation was to go to person to person and really look at them and be mindful. During this time she and I were holding hands and being “mindful”. Being mindful is being in the moment. We were looking at each other and we were not on our phones or thinking of bills.
She just crumbled in my arms and broke crying. I just held her and stroked her hair and told her it was okay to cry. Sometimes we just need a release and the tears just need to come. That she was in a safe place and it was okay. Afterward, she said she felt better, and we went on with our meditation. I feel like this person kind of gave me a purpose in my metaphysical life. I have all this knowledge due to my degrees from the University of Metaphysical Sciences and have always been very loving and helpful to the point where people have always told me to “toughen up”. Maybe this girl was a sign of what I can do with my metaphysical information and still be true to my genuine self and not be embarrassed or try to change just to suit other peoples ideas of what I should be. I was really happy that I went. Now I just got to figure out how to use it.
Interesting side note: While I was intermittently reaching out and holding hands with the people I knew and the loving strangers that I just met, I actually gave them “readings” in the sense that I spoke from what came from the heart and told them what I thought of them, even though I had just met a couple of them. As I spoke about on my Third Eye video http://metaphysicsme.com/youtube-videos.
I’m always asked at Chapel to give messages at the end of services but so far haven’t been able to. I feel like this visit to the Park for World Peace Day Meditation was the Universe telling me I can do this and I am on the right path.
