InnerSelf's Daily Inspiration

April 12-13-14, 2024

The focus for today (and the weekend) is:

I focus my energy outwards with the intention to uplift and bless.

Today's inspiration was written by Will T. Wilkinson:

Beginning meditators often struggle to quiet their minds. I sure did when I was initiated into Transcendental Meditation. I remember a morning in Vancouver, BC, way back in 1971, where I was meditating in my bedroom, increasingly frustrated with all the city sounds – car horns, people shouting, machine noises – plus the constant stream of random thoughts in my head. I felt attacked from both outside and inside!

Suddenly, a shaft of light streamed through the window and landed on my forehead. Simultaneously, I felt an inner explosion of illumination and my energy flow shifted direction 180 degrees. Instead of trying to escape all the distractions to some kind of isolated bubble of meditative calm, I felt myself expanding, extending my energy outwards towards every noise and thought. They were no longer distractions, they had become “targets” for blessing.

The difference was immediate and transformative. I’d been catapulted out of my head and into my heart. I began resonating with waves of energy moving outwards and my body vibrated with bliss. Not surprisingly, I’ve kept meditating this way ever since and I increasingly find that I can sustain this state throughout the day, simply by focusing my energy outwards with the intention to uplift and bless.

Today's inspiration was adapted from the article:
     The Three Stages of Conscious Evolution
     Written by Will T. Wilkinson.

This is Marie T. Russell, co-publisher of, wishing you a day of uplifting and blessing the people you come in contact with (today and every day)

Comment from Marie:
Our mind is a wondrous tool... and as with any tool, can be used for good, or not. Unfortunately our mind may have been programmed with thoughts of criticism, judgment, and blame -- whether for others or for ourselves. Tuning in to our heart and sending positive energy towards others is a blessing that can help uplift you as the sender and the other as the receiver. It costs nothing, it only takes the time of a thought, and it can make a huge difference in our daily experience, and the experience of others. Try it! You might like it! 

Our focus for today (and the weekend): I focus my energy outwards with the intention to uplift and bless.
