Since Eddie Conner was not available to do our meditation, his stand in, Deepak Chopra, providing the following inspiration to start our meeting with this Meditation. 

Ramona opened the meeting by welcoming guests and asking for updates.

The dictionary defines Invincible as “Too powerful to be defeated or overcome.”  What does it mean to be Invincible?  Comments included the following:

Unstoppable.  Can’t be conquered.  Nothing can affect the path you are on.  While the physical body may not be invincible, the spirit is. It is a peaceful feeling knowing you will accomplish the task.

A member stated that the feeling of invincibility may not necessarily be a good thing.  It can lead to overconfidence.  Remember that when an obstruction presents itself, the Universe has all the tools necessary for you to use to achieve your goal. The problems are really opportunities to learn how to deal with that situation. The more situations of a similar nature that are dealt with, the better prepared we will be to face the next obstacle.

When someone or something impedes our progress, what can we do?  Always remember life is about finding joy in every situation.  When you feel an aversion to something or someone, determine why; become aware of what it is that annoys you. When that annoyance distracts you from your desired result, find something nice about that person or thing and concentrate on that feature until your feelings begin to change.  This will change your vibration toward that person and make him or her more tolerable.  Whenever you find yourself in a bad situation, shift your vibration to a good one – maybe a memory from the past, a loved one, whatever uplifts your emotions. 

Here are some examples and suggestions.  

A friend, caught in a deep depression, was immediately cured by her mother who merely said “Remember, you were born in love”.  This was an epiphany for her and she came out of the depression and moved forward.

A person who was afraid to speak in front of groups received several awards and was called to the podium to make an acceptance speech. The good feelings of being recognized by her superiors and her peers who were genuinely happy for her made her feel invincible.  Her speech was magnificent and she no longer fears public speaking.

Another member suggested NLP anchoring or neuro-linguisticprogrammingWhen you have a major accomplishment, do something (like a high-five) where your body makes a motion that cements the feeling into your brain.  Another technique is tapping, discussed in earlier meetings.

A college student experienced invincibility from having a feeling of peace and happiness that comes from being prepared during finals. Walking back to her apartment after class, she knew she could go to work, study, have time to prepare herself a good dinner, clean her apartment, and be ready for finals. So simple but it felt wonderful, like this is how life should be – balanced.

A violinist knows the answer to that old “joke”, How do you get to Carnegie Hall?  Practice, practice, practice.  After nine years of playing the violin and honing her skills, she and her group were asked to play at Carnegie Hall. The feeling of invincibility from being up on that stage is one she will always remember and be able to fall back on in tougher times.

Another student joined the drama club and auditioned for lead in the play. This was not a character type she had performed before as many of her acting assignments were of a similar nature and she felt type-cast. When they announced she got the part, even those who lost out congratulated her. Getting the part and being recognized by her peers gave her a feeling of invincibility.

Invincibility is really being in alignment with Source and feeling joy no matter what’s going on in your life. That’s all it is.  It’s just feeling good all the time.  When you are placed in a bad situation, acknowledge it, but immediately shift your mindset to a good one. Remember those earlier life experiences that made you feel high. Think about your children, grandchildren, pets and the joy they bring. Look for the good things and ignore the rest.

Remember Deepak’s State of Being:  STOP
S          Stop
T          Take 3 deep breaths, smile everywhere in your body
O         Observe what is happening in your body and your mind
P          Proceed with kindness, compassion, joy and love

Ramona read the following quote from Esther Hicks “Can you understand how much Well-being is flowing to you?  Do you understand how much orchestration of circumstances and events on your behalf is available to you?  Do you understand how adored you are?  Do you understand how the creation of this planet, creation of this universe, fits together for the perfection of your experience?  Do you understand how beloved you are, how blessed you are, how adored you are, and what an integral part of this creative process you are?”

The closing video was Abraham-Hicks – CHILL OUT

Next meeting will be September 30.

Writer’s note: When Ramona passed out the tiny scrolls at the conclusion of the meeting, I received the following quote from Abraham. “You are the vibrational writer of the script of your life, and everyone else in the Universe is playing the part that you have assigned to them.” Somehow those scrolls always fit.
