September, 2020: Balance
September finds us still moving through much change and many twists. Flexibility is needed and so is focus. For this month, I am sharing a meditation on balance. This meditation focuses specifically on balancing the mental and the gut intelligences.
The mental intelligence when in balance is sharp, clear and fast to make good decisions. When out of balance, it is murky, confused, overwhelmed and worried. Connected to the crown and third eye chakras, this intelligence desires to connect us to our clarity, intuition and imagination. It helps us envision our dreams and notice the details of this moment.
The gut intelligence in balance is direct action. It is productive. It gets the jobs done. When out of balance, it overdoes, overeats, over pushes and/or it is depressed, lethargic and unmotivated. Connected to the root and sacral chakras, this intelligence helps us feel safe, grounded and creative. It helps us move forwards in life and take the physical actions we need to make change.
For this month’s meditation, we work with the element of water and singing bowls to help up clear and reconnect these two powerful centers. When the mind and gut intelligence are in balance together, we know when to act with efficiency and ease and when to sit back and rest.
Wishing you a month of focused action and rest, clarity and peace.
August, 2020: Heart Spiral
Welcome to August. This month is packed with a lot of powerful energy. It is very much a time of portals and transformations. We are beginning to walk into a new world.
And in this time of transition, we have the potential for a lot of powerful change. However, we need to be mindful where and how we are directing this current influence of powerful energies. For this reason, we will work with the Heart Chakra this month. The Heart Chakra is the central point of the energy body. It connects the lower chakras with the upper chakras. It is the bridge between all that is below and above, behind and ahead.
The heart is magnetic. It will magnetize to what we want or what we don't want. And it's tricky because it works off of our feelings. And our feelings are sometimes things that we're not always attuned to. So, this meditation is really powerful for helping us clear and realign with what we want to magnetize into our life.
We will use the image of a spiral to help clear and balance the very powerful vortex of the heart. The image of a spiral will assist us in this month's meditation to clear energy of the past and make way for wonderful new energy. We have an amazing opportunity to open up to an incredible bright new future but in order to do this well, we need to continually let go old patterns.
In this meditation we will de-magnetize and release old stuck feelings that we don't want to be calling in. We will release old patterning, ancestral trauma, and unhelpful stories. We will then invite in the feelings that we want to bring into our future: unconditional love, forgiveness, joy, peace, calm, acceptance, laughter, clarity... Lastly, we will use a spirit ally to help assistance us as we re-magnetize and align through the portal of the heart. Enjoy.
