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?

Wow!

Sacred Body Oracle: Heaven’s Gate

The Mental Body

is a sacred cauldron

intuits & discerns

inspires & analyzes

is both open & transparent, dense & walled-off

dissolves old patterns & creates new habits

manifests new realities & holds embedded constructs

invokes the divine & evokes spirit through the body

The mental body is your mind. Its purpose is to open heaven’s gate of awareness…using it for a higher purpose…transforming knowledge into wisdom through experience. You choose how to engage it.

Take ownership this month, anchoring your spirit within your body at all seven levels of consciousness, with all seven glands and their transmissions. Observe all from inside the center of your head where the crystal palace houses your encodement for evolution. Breathe and circulate your life force. Own your body through your conscious breath. Destroy the old, then breathe and create something new. Breathe to make new bones, new blood and marrow. Breathe to be here. Breathe to stop thinking. Breathe to inspire. Breathe. Now.
