Sacred Energy, Sacred Space: Neutrality

The wise man said: neutrality is not about changing what is out there. It is not even about changing what is in here. It is about being the observer of what is everywhere, accepting it for what it is, and responding appropriately.

Practice:

Be aware of your attention in the middle of your head. Move from your centerline: here is last week’s focusing exercise.

Self-Reflection:

How does your body feel as you sit in the center of your head?

What emotions do you experience?

Are you aware of any thoughts? Do you attach to them or do they pass through?

Are you responsive or reactive?

As part of the Sacred Body Oracle readings, we bring you Sacred Energy, Sacred Space. Now a part of the Sacred Bodies, Sacred Rhythms newsletter/blog, we’ll post a self-reflection practice once monthly along with 4-5 other topics to create a weekly adventure in self-awareness: exploring the mystical conversation between body & spirit.

Sacred Body Wisdom: Conversations Between Body & Spirit

Lie on your back with your knees bent. Your feet are on the floor and your arms are lifted upward, your fingertips reach toward the ceiling. Relax your shoulder blades onto the floor. Alternately move one arm towards the floor overhead and the other to the floor alongside your body. Switch directions. Breathe in as you lift your arms, breathe out as they lower toward the floor. Repeat this about 5 times. Rest.

Now try this: call your awareness into the center of your head. Exhale & watch your body as you very gently pull your belly button down toward your spine. Continue to engage the belly button, alternately moving your arms in the same way, repeating it about 5 times.

Once you synchronize your breath with the movements into an effortless flow, imagine your picture again–the one of you in your life–your true essence. Keep breathing. Keep moving your arms. Repeat the alternating movements as you hold that picture of you,  filled with amusement and enthusiasm!

Alternating movement of the limbs helps the body-mind integrate logical and intuitive hemispheres in the brain. Conscious breathing helps you center and focus on what is important to your soul. Awareness in the center of your head helps you sustain a responsive (non-reactive) state by utilizing chemistry properly. Focusing on your personal picture helps you consciously connect, creating practical daily choices with intentional imagery. When you hold the picture long enough, the image will become part of your longest term memory, actually hard-wiring it into the oldest part of your brain. This creates a new state of being. This is how the body communicates with spirit.

Sacred Body Oracle: Clarity

Clear Sight

the Brow Chakra

the Pineal Gland

the 6th Level of Consciousness

the Seat of Your Wisdom

Inner Rhythms

Clairvoyance

Telepathy

Precognition

When you soften your focus, relaxing your eyes, your attention moves into the center of your head. When the external sense of sight is withdrawn, you will see your inner world more clearly. As you find your truth in this experience, you might just find a way to respond to the outer world with calm clarity.

Take a nice slow walk in nature. Stroll and visualize. Create the picture you want to see. This is the communication space between your body and your spirit. It is the language you speak with the god of your heart and your subconscious mind. Hold the image in your mind’s eye as long as you can. Stay with it. When the picture disappears, create it again. Let go of all the thoughts and pictures that do not resonate with your picture. Was, breathe, relax and continue to recreate the image for 5 minutes.

Sacred Energy, Sacred Space: Inspiration & Enthusiasm

Some years ago I read a book that identified three levels of inner exploration: Meditation, Contemplation, Focus

I like to call them: Witness, Reflect, Create

Yoga philosophy speaks to its eight limbs, three of these states access the subtle realms: Samadhi, Dhyana, Dharana

Consider the similarities of these three ideologies. Do you ever witness yourself as you move through your day and realize you can change your state of mind? Do you spend time regularly reflecting on your choices? Do you proactively create your life?

Self-Reflection:

How can you use your breath to infuse your full being-ness with inspiration: body, mind & heart? How can you expand your awareness with conscious breathing? How can you share your enthusiasm in the world?

Practice:

Sit in a quiet space, your feet are on the floor, your eyes are closed.

Begin by breathing naturally to relax your body for a few minutes. Now, practice breathing into your nose and exhaling down your spine into the center of the Earth. Repeat this cycle a few times.

As you become more centered, bring your attention behind your eyes, deep in the middle of your head. Continue breathing into your nose and down your spine  for a few minutes.

This is the space of the sixth chakra—the seat of your wisdom, neutrality and clear sight.

Imagine you are sitting quietly someplace in nature inside the center of your head. Look down through your body to your pelvis. Can you do this without going down there? Look from inside the center of your head to the outside world. Can you do this without going out there? While you are in there, you can use your breath to clear off the area behind your eyes.

Sit in the center of your head, just breathing and observing yourself for several minutes.

Sacred Body Wisdom: Breathing, Centering, Releasing

Breathe in through your nose, deep into the center of your head. Allow the wind to flow through your brain and glands, clearing any stagnant energy and thoughts. Exhale down your spinal core, releasing the dross into Earth’s center.

Conscious breathing brings you closer to your own center, calling your awareness into the center of your head, in the centerline of your body. Your body sits in the center of your aura grounded though the breath into the center of the planet.

Lughnasadh: Druid Tree Workings

 

Even though I adore reading and reviewing books (specific genres I might add), I rarely repost other’s articles and blogs. Well, it’s high time I do because there are so many amazing people out there expressing and sharing their thoughts and practices on nature, consciousness, evolutionary maps and spiritual growth. So here, for the first time in my world, is a repost from The Druid’s Garden. Thank you!

Lughnasadh: Fruits, Flowers & Guardians

I’m not much of a gardener, in practice anyway. And little did I know, the garden would at some point in my life become a truly wondrous thing…especially here in Washington State where everything grows with Findhorn magic.

I humbly learned and planted various things gradually over the years: first in small containers on a very hot balcony, to a small back alley plot behind my loft studio–both in Santa Fe; next in containers on a concrete slab surrounded by a weed filled back yard, to a lovely back deck–both in rental homes in the South Sound area of Washington state.

Some years it was flowers and herbs, others it was zucchini, kale & lettuces.

 

 

 

 

This year I focused on rosemary, lavender, a few flowers in the front yard and two tomato plants that my neighbor started…the first bright red reward is starting to make its appearance through the leaves.

And talking about flowers, the roses here are prolific and beyond incredible. Thank you Thomas & Margaret for holding magical space here all these years. Rest easily, Rikki has now taken up residence as guardian of the gate, calling in dragon flies, bees and humming birds, not to mention the mice, moles & voles. He’s in kit-kat heaven!

A last tomato mention: If I only planted two, where did all these other plants come from?

Cherries & Heirlooms Line the Walkway

Wow!
