When I was writing my Cells book I got the idea to meditate each day on a different chapter, to discover even more deeply what our cells have to teach us.

I start with the creation of SANCTUARY And this is where I usually start a class, talk, or workshop – with SANCTUARY

Chapter 1 of Secrets of Your Cells is Sanctuary.  
This tells a sci-sacred myth of how molecules gathered to create a container, or sanctuary, for life. If we consider that each cell contains all the necessary molecules and life force to survive, we are reminded that we are embraced by all of molecular marriages, 100 trillion times.


In our Creation story from science, the elemental ingredients came from the stars.  Just consider that we are the recycle of dying stars – all our universe and every living thing come from stardust.

Atoms meet, form molecules then molecules get together to form a container for life, Without the container for all the molecules and parts, there can be no life.  WITHOUT PLACE, THERE IS NOT LIFE. And if we choose to see life as SACRED, our sacred place or container is a sanctuary. The Divine Life Force needs a container and that place and container is the Cell.  Every one of our cells is a container of that sacred energy given to ignite life. Each one a sanctuary.

fancy cellEvery cell is a sanctuary for our sacred life force.  

LET’S meditate on that.

HERE IS a CELL SANCTUARY guided mediation for going inside.  

Please don’t listen when you are driving.  Sit in a safe sacred place, quiet. You may even want a journal beside you to write or draw your experience.


Close your eyes, breathe easily and bring your awareness to your belly, feeling your breath.  As you breathe in relaxation to and from your center, let your awareness move to wherever you consider the ‘outer edge’ of you.  Imagine that all of your cells are engaged in this visualization with you.  Know that they are holding you in the sacred container of life.  Hold that, feel that and let it inform you for the day.  The light of life and spirit are within.  When you are ready, open your eyes and remember the wonder of all that you are.

And when you are done, take in the wonder that is ancient wisdom.  Could these representations of sacred art also be expressions of our sacred cell sanctuaries?  Discover more for yourself in the upcoming Secrets of Your Cells Book Club starting in September 2020.  Early bird special until Aug 16.
