We hope you enjoy our series and we look forward to knowing how our posts have inspired you!

“The discipline of creation, be it to paint, compose, write, is an effort towards wholeness.” ~ Madeleine L’Engle, Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art

“How can I be substantial if I do not cast a shadow? I must have a dark side also If I am to be whole.” ~ C.G. Jung, Modern Man in Search of a Soul

Perhaps the simplest way to put it is that wholeness is an experience, a process, a journey, and also a trait of your innermost Self. We are dealing with the world of paradox here where two seemingly opposing states can both be true. As humans, we are innately flawed, imperfect, and ‘broken.’ Yet at the same time, we contain within us a deeper essence (that goes beyond the ego) that is whole and complete. Can you see the paradox here? Wholeness is a trait of your innermost Being and therefore, it’s also an experience you can have in moments of silence, stillness, contemplation, and present moment awareness. Furthermore, wholeness is a process and therefore a journey because in order to experience it, we need to slowly dismantle the layers shrouding that inner whole core.

Did you know that wholeness and holiness are connected? Holy comes from the Old English word hālig, which means “whole, healthy, entire, and complete.” So to be whole means to be holy. Wholeness is holiness and this is why when we have a direct experience of our wholeness it tends to feel like a mystical experience of awe, gratitude, love, and reverie.

Meditation For Wholeness 

Now find a comfortable seated position and close your eyes. Begin by bringing your awareness to your breath. Notice yourself breathing in and breathing out. Notice the quality of your breath – whether your breath is deep or shallow, fast or slow. Bring your breath to a comforting rhythm. Take a few moments to bring yourself to your body and to the present moment with your breath. Imagine with your out breath all that burdens you birthed out into the air to dissipate and with the in breath imagine divine white light entering your vessel to cleanse your body. 

Now use your imagination, your mind’s eye, and imagine a leaf in your hand. Notice the size, the shape, the weight, the texture of the leaf. Reflect on how this small leaf contains the life force of a mighty oak tree. Reflect on how tough and resilient this small leaf must be in order to survive the fall to the ground, the elements of sun, rain, wind, or snow, and the animals and bugs that will try to consume it. Just like an leaf that has everything it needs to decompose into the earth once more, you have everything within you to become your full self. Inside of yourself is a whole and complete you that has always been there. It is the wise and resilient part of you that may have become hidden or obscured by the darkness of life, waiting for the right moment to crack open and emerge. See if you can look into yourself now and find that seed, that life force. Allow yourself to touch it, to feel it, to hold on to it and be grounded by it. Allow yourself to give it the care, nurture, and patience that it needs to unfold into your mighty self.

Now come back to the awareness of your eternal and guiding breath. We will leave the image of the leaf for now. You can come back to this imagery whenever you need to. Notice yourself breathing in and breathing out. Notice if anything has changed for you since the beginning of this activity. Continue meditating for prefered. Now gently open your eyes and bring yourself back to this room.  

We hope this meditation will help you on your journey to finding the wholeness within. Let us know what types of meditations aid you..

  1. But don’t you think Dios, you are encouraging a life in imagination than facing the reality? Don’t you believe it is mindfulness that this generation needs the most?

    1. I think for most of the past couple of centuries the masculine polarity has dominated the societies and that imagination is exploring the feminine polarity. However, I do agree that mindfulness is key to living a good life. 🙏🏻♥️

      1. Thanks for taking time to reply me Sir, than responding with your emoji.What do you mean by masculine/ feminine polarity dear Sir? Do you mean feminine aspect are more attracted to fantasy in very part of every human? In my understanding there is no such difference in consciousness being a male polarity or female polarity . Nevertheless, for me wholeness is returning to pure consciousness. For me meditation is listening to the higher self of mine. For me mindfulness is observing my thoughts being consciousness.I would like to bring to your kind notice Sir, that each entity mentioned here could be experienced and not merely imagination. Therefore simply lead a life true to your self ( conscience) that you don’t need any complicated practices such meditation.

      2. Thank you Niyathy, when I mean masculine and feminine polarities is the left brain being associated with masculine energy or yang energy and the right brain being associated with feminine energy or yin energy. The world today focuses on more of the mental masculine polarity and the divine feminine yin polarity is now coming into being at this time hence creativity and such. 🙏🏻

      3. I will try to contemplate on what you say with my feminine yin left brain if such exist, but do you do meditation for the brain?

      4. We have a left part of the brain and a right part of the brain according to science, the left focuses on analysis and mental aspects whereas the right brain deals with creativity, music, expression hence yang for masculine, left part of the brain and yin for the feminine left part of the brain. 🙏🏻

      5. I got you. Thank you for this knowledge dear Sir. So you meditate with your yin brain? But the issue I brought here is about imagination. You are right.According to this theory yin who is responsible for mental aspects has to be tamed. I think she is getting too wild.

        Thank you for the you tube link Dios. I will look into it. Thanks again. Have a good night sleep.Hugs.

      6. Visualisation mediations are a good way to harmonise the brain; imagine the brain harmoning, you could visualise it if you liked and meditate on this.. We are more powerful than we think or believe. 🙏🏻♥️

      7. I take your words Sir. I never thought meditation is to train and mould the brain. I always believed that meditation(open eye) is to sublimate the consciousness. But what you explained here makes much sense. Thank you for shining light on this subject.Much grateful.
