It’s interesting that until you are asked this question directly, you never think of all the useless things that you bow your head to, and all the things deserving your bow that you’re too absent to engage with. So what’s the significance of bowing your head? When you bow, you take your head to the level of your heart, or even lower than your heart. It’s a subconscious act of submission where you surrender your head to heart. This is the internal mechanics of it, and when done mindfully the ego submits.
However you don’t always do this mindfully if at all. So your head bows, but it could be in shame, it could be in disempowerment, it could be in fear, it could be because you don’t recognise the divinity that animates you, also animates the thing before you. To give you a useful pointer here, bowing before anything other than a recognition of divinity before you is giving your power away.
Here is what we mean by bowing to Divinity.
Bow your head to your heart in face of elders that are radiating wisdom in their flesh, and pouring wisdom from their being.
Bow your head in gratitude and appreciation.
Bow your head when you’ve been given to, even in the smallest of ways.
Bow your head as a salute to the Divine life force in another.
Bow your head in recognition of truth.
Bow your head when your inner guru is touched and activated by an outer guru.
Bow your head when faced with the sacredness of what it means to be alive in this moment.
Bow your head in recognition that only your heart has the answer.
Bow your head when love is not just a thought, but a full blown embodiment.
Bow your head to show your respect for everything that has brought you to this time and this space.
Bow your head in remeberance of the timeless, ageless and boundless aspects of you.
Recognise and be aware of when your head goes to your heart, when you bring consciousness to this act you’ll fully be gifted and blessed by the moment. As you give you also receive.
Thank you for your attention, in service to Divine Love, we are the Council Of Light.
