Honor is a specific vibration. To honor is to have the capacity and willingness to hold and act from that vibration. When we honor, whether it is ourselves or others, we extend that frequency. Honor is the recognition, respect, acknowledgment and appreciation that is extended to oneself and to others.|
Honor has many aspects and many steps within it. It is an unfolding process of awakening and action. First, we recognize. We distinguish something, a quality, a gift, an action, that has value. We recognize that value and distinguish it as valuable. Then, we respect. We feel respect for that person, that attribute. Through this respect, we acknowledge. We deem it to be valuable. Lastly, we appreciate. We hold it in esteem.. We cherish it. These are the inner processes of knowing what we honor and recognizing what we honor. If we don"t know what we honor, then we can honor it. If we cannot see it and respect it and know the value it has, then we cannot extend the energies of honor to it or to another.
I created this meditation to open you to honor yourself. We are not free to honor others, if we cannot feel honor within. When we honor ourselves, we extend and appreciate our own worth, our own value for who we are and what we contribute. When we can feel this in ourselves, then honor becomes a graceful and enriching way of being.
In this meditation, you will need writing implements, as well as a quiet space and state of mind. So get your writing paraphernalia or open your word processing program and we shall begin. When you are ready, allow yourself the quiet to proceed with this meditation practice. Please take as much time as you need. Honor yourself and your process.
As you play within this meditation, first you will bring yourself to a centered place of calm. Then, you will be writing certain things that you notice. Afterward you will go into meditation to experience these energies.
Take three very deep, very slow breaths. Inhale to the count of seven. Hold your breath to the count of seven. Exhale to the count of seven. Repeat this three times.
Think of one quality you have that you admire about yourself. A quality is a descriptive, like being compassioante, caring, friendly, assertive, happy, creative, funny, etc. Be truthful. Explore some of the qualities that make you who you are, and find one quality that you admire about yourself. It could be the same quality that you admire in others. It might be something very unique about yourself. It doesn"t matter what anyone else thinks, this is about what you value. When you discover this quality, write it in bold, capital letters.
Now, think of one talent that you have, that you truly appreciate. A talent is a skill, like cooking, painting, programming, writing, dancing, swimming, etc. It is something that you enjoy doing and that you value. Everyone has talent in a number of areas. When you discover this talent, write id down in bold, capital letters.
Take several slows deep breaths, just as before, to become more calm and more focused.
Think of the quality that you admire about yourself. Imagine the feelings of that quality. Allow it to grow and build inside you. Let this quality fill you. Saturate yourself with it.
As you hold the fullness of this quality, also imagine your special talent. Feel this talent sitting inside the quality you admire. Allow your most wonderful experiences with your talent to reside within the quality you admire.
Hold the focus of both your quality and your talent.
THE FOCUS DECLARATION:
Say each sentence slowly and deliberately.
"I have the quality of ____________ (speak your quality here)."
"I admire the quality of ____________ ."
"I honor the quality of ____________ . I honor this within myself."
"I have the talent of ____________ (speak your talent here)."
"I admire the talent of ____________ ."
"I honor the talent of ____________ . I honor this within myself."
"I honor myself for who I am." " I honor myself for who I am." " I honor myself for who I am."
"I honor myself for who I am."
Take several slow, deep breaths and return to your normal focus.
AWAKENING HONOR WITHIN:
Be easy and gracious with this meditation. Allow it to be whatever it is. Honor whatever happens in this practice. The more you do it, the more open you will feel.
As you continue to play with this meditation, add as many qualities and talents as you like. As many talents and qualities that you truly admire and honor within yourself, are as many as you can declare and acknowledge. I encourage you to add to this meditation, by speaking it aloud in front of a mirror. Let yourself be filled with honor and recognition.
AWAKENING HONOR IN THE WORLD:
When you are at ease with this practice and can feel the beauty and value of your own talents, when you feel and know the deeper gifts of your self, then you can share honor with others. You can recognize and appreciate their gifts. You can show people that you value them or special qualities about them.
May joyous blessings fill your life with acknowledgment and grace.
