Do you start to smell, feel change in the air?
We are in the transition from being, the Yin peak of the year to the time of doing, with the Wood element.
I'm looking upon this time as self-nurturing, looking after ourselves, our bodies, still delving into our yin, water energy and letting emerge the beginning of Spring, welcoming this alive and healthy energy within! I see the time and care invested in ourselves as the greatest investment! From here we can spread our vibrations, inspiration and support towards others.
From inspirational Jamie Sams in Sacred Path Cards:
~"The way we view life is dependent, to a certain extent, on how we feel and how we respect and care for our bodies."
~"All nurturing comes from the ability to pay attention to our needs and our feelings. If we don't know what we need, how can we nurture ourselves? If we don't know what others need or feel, how can we give comfort? If we are out of touch with our bodies, how can we keep them healthy and strong?"
~"If we are willing to nurture ourselves through connection to our Earth Mother, then we will learn how to nurture others."
Our body is a vehicle for processing energy, and the healthier we are, the more energy it will process at a faster rate.
~One thing to be aware of is the physical effect on our body of our thoughts and feelings. So as Dr.Christiana Northrup says in Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom: "If our bodies are nothing but a field of ideas, lets make sure that those ideas represent our best interest."
A great way for nourishment and self-nurturing is the inner smile, smile to your organs giving special attention still to your kidneys and give a special look to your liver. When doing your inner smile...notice if any of the organs feel different? Can be a message from your internal universe.
**Focus on the breath coming and going through your nose... With your minds eye, look in front of you and see the sun, warm and shining, lighting up all your being, all your organs, all your cells, all your bones... Smile at your organs... when you arrive at your kidneys:
*Keep smiling at your kidneys, breathe in the blue healing light of gentleness and wisdom; be gentle with yourself, be gentle in everything you do.
Fear being the emotion of the kidneys, it creates cold, associate negative emotions as phobias, trauma, nervousness, which are very deep emotions; fear contributes as well for the loss of the primordial and sexual energy, loss of life force, (the nervous system becomes stressed, the body becomes acidic). Do the kidneys healing sound to let go all your fears:
**Connect with your kidneys, feel or imagine the warmth from your palms going into your kidneys, you can be sitting on the chair or in floor, place your hands around your knees, your feet on the floor, round the back, and pull in the abdomen. Look inward, into your kidneys and breathe out WHHHOOOO releasing, letting go fear.
Breath in the fresh bright blue light of gentleness, calmness and wisdom.
Self-nurturing is essential to connect with the Divine Feminine within.
*What makes part of your self-nurturing routine?
Do you know is important to integrate one self-nurturing practice towards ourselves every day?
**You can make a list of everything that makes you feel good, nurtured and happy with yourself. Then add one of these to your daily life. May different days reflect different self-nurturing practices.
Enjoy the end of the Winter and the beginning of the Spring!
