Energy Awareness Reminder

As we open up to the season, our interactions with others also begin to ramp up. 
🌿How are you staying centered?

🌿How are you staying grounded?

🌿Are you using any protection, shielding or banishing work?

🌿What are you holding space for?


Really think about this. Feel this in your body.

Journal about this and comment below if you can share.

Self-Care Reminder

It is time for you to do your Self-Work. Discover who you are, what you like and do not like, and create some boundaries.Start with reprogramming your self talk. 
Set business hours for your loved ones to discipline yourself as to when you can do favors for others.

Discern what is a true favor versus something you should either be paid for or receive something of equal value in exchange for your help.

Do not do this half-assed. Take time to SEE OR SEEK the value of who you are inside you.

Holding Space Meditation

Journal Work:

Holding Space Defined:
Holding Space… I talk about it often but I noticed the need to really break down what it means to do this… This is still an evolving definition but this is part of it:
Holding space is the process in which a person is fully present with themselves and with others.
It is being grounded by Sky and Earth, yet connecting with your senses. Being energetically present, aware and tuned in to who you are holding space for as well as the physical place.
This is the energetic version of active listening but on a sacred, protected and loving level.
Now this is in the best conditions of Holding Space.

Holding Space Meditation

This Meditation is for honing this ability. Please begin this alone a few times before inviting others into your meditation.

This Meditation is Part Movement, Part Stillness and Part Visualization.

1. Begin Standing in a place where you will not be interrupted or distracted for 5-15 minutes.

2. Breathe naturally for a few breaths; then slowly deepen your breathing to 3 counts for inhaling breaths and 3 counts for exhaling breaths. Do this for at least one minute.

3. Visualize your feet touching the Earth. Allow your senses to connect with the Earth Energy. Now reach down with your hands and pull this Earth Energy up through your feet, into your legs, up through each energy center (chakra) and up through the Crown of your head sacrificing the rest of the Earth Energy to the Sky.

4. Reconnect with your breath. Allow your senses to connect with the Sky Energy. Now reach up with your hands and pull this Sky Energy down through the crown of your head, into your third eye, down through your throat and down through each energy center to end through your feet; sacrificing the rest of the Sky Energy to the Earth.

5. Return to the original position. Reconnect with your breath. Allow your senses to be open and aware. Now visualize what it’s like to be calm and safe. Visualize what it’s like to be happy and laughing. When your mind naturally moves away from these images and feelings; allow it and just relax.

6. Repeat the Earth and Sky Energy exercises and visualize your energy at rest and back into your body. Allow your body, mind and energy to recognize this is the closure of the Meditation.

Write in your journal about your experience. The more you can do this meditation with ease and comfort the easier it will become to Hold Space for others.

Walking Meditation

There are many ways to meditate. It is a misconception that the only way to meditate is through complete silence and stillness. There are actually five ways to meditate and they are:

1. Focusing – you focus on an object to help keep your mind from wandering.

2. Thinking – you think about a specific situation with intention to be positive or to make positive changes.

3. Visualizing – you create pictures in your mind, thus making your mind stronger.

4. Experiencing – this is a combination of thinking and visualizing. You set your motivation beforehand, then you allow your emotions and senses experience situations you are working to make changes in empowering and life balancing ways.

5. Movement – you allow yourself to be attentive to your actions of everyday movements. You notice your breathing, your senses, you focus on the task you are performing. This allows you to be a part of small acts of bliss through mindfulness

Walking Meditation
My favorite walking meditation is in the park. I begin at the entrance of my favorite park, it has a huge lake at its center. I start by taking a big inhaling breath and then I slowly exhale letting my body relax and connect with nature. As you take your next inhaling breath tune in to your shoulders and jaw; and as you exhale let your shoulders release and slide away from your ears. Allow your jaw to open slightly while you rest the tip of your tongue at the roof of your mouth behind your teeth.

I always walk counter-clockwise around the lake to cleanse or clear away my stress and worries. Sometimes I walk fast but I set my pace slow and methodical at first so that I can tune in to my body rhythms. I engage all of my senses and allow myself to be aware of all the sensations from smells, noises, and even allowing myself to interact with others in the park. I keep these interactions to small greetings or smiles. As I return to my starting point I tune back into my breathing and as I end my walk I work on slowing my breath down to a calm slow inhalation and exhalation.

Take some free time and go on a walking meditation of your own. The main concern is to not get frustrated by distractions. Acknowledge them and then get your mind back engaged with your walk. The purpose is to be able to have more control over your mind and being aware of interference.

H. A. L. T.

Take a break or decline from doing any work if you are:
Hungry
Angry
Lonely
Tired

This is a simple pneumonic phrase to help you to notice when you are not grounded.  Be truthful to yourself and take a time-out if your feelings have become involved and the involvement is not positive.  A small escape can mean night or day in your dealings with others.  Please be mindful and aware of yourself and the energy you are transmitting.
