Have you ever looked up the definition of ‘grace’ in
the dictionary? It consists of three distinct concepts: 1 beauty of
movement or form, 2 mercy and clemency, and 3 divine love and
I have long had a fondness for looking
words up in the dictionary to better understand their true meaning.
Since we energetically create with our thoughts and words, this
understanding helps me use the best words possible. It is not a
coincidence that the definition of ‘grace’ includes all three of
these elements. Each is important to help us embody and exemplify
living in grace within our daily lives.
The three elements of
‘grace’ as concepts for self-mastery:
1.) Beauty of
Movement or Form
I like to think about it this way:
When one goes through life gracefully, they are never out of step
with the beauty that is within each moment and within the form of
their life’s path. When one is in balance with the rhythm of life,
not fighting or trying to change it, even challenging situations
don’t interfere with their path. When you are able to gracefully
accept and deal with any situation at hand, you are keeping the
energetic movement in form and beautiful! Try internalizing:
“Although this is not what I expected, it is what is happening.
Therefore, I accept it. I accept it because I believe that God and
the Universe have a better vision of how things need to be for me.”
2.) Mercy & Clemency
It is not always easy
to stay in graceful balance. One of the biggest challenges is our
perceptions of other people who appear to be negative, wrong, or
bad. This is when one needs to bring forth mercy and clemency to
maintain grace. How? Demonstrate a non-judgmental approach. Think:
“I allow this person to be as they are and I forgive this person. I
gracefully accept them as they are, and how they need to be.” (This
does not mean you agree with them or their behavior, but that you
gracefully allow.) Visualize yourself rising above them and allowing
them to be as they are. Gracefully detach yourself from them and
the situation. Ask God to take over. Release the relationship to
God and the Universe to guide and direct.
Love & Protection
What this says to me is, ‘I invite the
power and the glory to enter my space.’ If you are grace, being
grace in each moment, then you live life with a belief that you have
divine love and protection with you. In fact, you are divine love
and protection. No matter what happens you just know that it is
suppose to be that way and that all will turn out in a manner that
is beneficial to all concerned. All that is happening is for the
greater good of all. This is so even when you are experiencing what
appears to be negative dynamics. Why? Often what is best for us is
not what we expect, what we can see, or what we have knowledge of.
Therefore, the key to ‘being grace’ is knowing it; claiming it as
your way of being. I know I am divine love and protection;
therefore, that is how it is. The power of our own thoughts and
emotions are critical.
So let’s summarize 'living grace'. I
gracefully go through life accepting what is. I do this in a
non-judgmental manner, allowing others to be as they are. Moreover,
I allow divine love and protection to enter, because I believe it to
So much happens in our world in which we do not have
control. I hope the concept of living grace speaks to you and helps
you live in graceful balance; always and everywhere.
