A hongi is a traditional Maori greeting in New Zealand

“Why do we close our eyes when we pray, cry, kiss, dream? Because the most beautiful things in life are not seen but felt in the heart.”

It is true that closing my eyes helps me focus my attention on my body and the feelings that arise during various activities. Meditation is a time that I close my eyes to remove my attention from the outer world and focus on my inner world.


Another practice that helps me focus on the higher world is to look up in the sky when I am outdoors. So often I am focused on where I will place my next step that I forget to notice that I am surrounded by beauty and LOVE. Looking up at the sky helps me remember that I am only here for a time and that this is not my true home. I also think of God as up there, even though I know God is everywhere. When I look up at the sky, I often reconnect with God and utter a greeting, like, “Hi, God.” Doing this makes me happy.


There are so many subtle feelings that arise inside ourselves, which speak to us in another language. The word “feelings” is used to mean emotions, but there are so many other feelings we can learn from. As we learn to hear our guidance from the Other Side, we learn to notice new and different feelings and to distinguish them from non-guidance feelings. As we listen to our hearts, we learn to notice the changes in our hearts and the way they feel at different times. We can meditate on our feelings and learn a lot.


“God, hi! I love connecting with you, God, and thank you for LOVING me always, in all ways. You are my best LOVER and companion. Help me learn to read my internal feelings and honor them, so I can follow my inner higher guidance. Thank you, God. I love you.”
