Spring is here and although this may be a different experience than usual, the theme is still very much "Awakening". The flowers & plants are blooming, bees are buzzing, birds chirping, all bringing a unique color & light to what can be perceived as a "dark" time. With awakening comes new beginnings, offerings and a deeper bonding of communities. "The more I open and awaken, the more I will attract the same kind of souls."
My personal process is transitioning the foods I’m eating (sticking to a seasonal diet), working with Solar Plexus/Heart/Throat chakra plant medicines (Ginger, Lemon Balm, Motherwort, Rose, Cacao, Peppermint & Matcha), stepping into a new workout/movement and taking a beat to acknowledge my accomplishments for the year thus far!
As we enter the 4th month of 2020, there's an opportunity to release whatever isn’t serving our space, making room for new manifestations and intentions to BLOOM. But first, take that beat for yourself to acknowledge what YOU’VE accomplished and created! YOU’RE WORTH THE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT!
EXERCISES FOR RELEASE
1) Write down what’s not serving you (can be old stories, something that’s been lingering, people you get to walk away from (even if just for now), tear it up and burn it. At the end say “And it is done!” Or if a person “I am free, and you’re free.”
2) CORD CUTTING CEREMONY: close your eyes and imagine you’re sitting on an island surrounded by water. See cords coming from your chest & going into the ocean (you can’t see where they end). Each cord represents something or someone you’re letting go of. When you’re ready see yourself cutting each cord with your hand, almost like slicing it (or you can use a stone/crystal of your choosing) (some will be more difficult to let go of, so cut through as many times as you need), and watch the cord go into the ocean releasing and dissolving what doesn’t serve you. Go through all the cords you need to cut. Once through, you’re going to pull a new cord into your chest representing the person or thing you released, but now in a new light, attaching positive words/affirmations to each cord. This doesn’t mean the person will be back in your life, however it’s seeing them or a situation in a different light that’s freeing.
