Snuggle up, take out a favorite pen and paper and spend five minutes or more with these questions.
Let your hand flow freely and see what comes...
The Medicine of West asks:
What do you need to shed in order to gather what you truly need?
What is truly worth harvesting?
What is dying in you and around you?
What can you surrender (even if you don't feel ready) to make space for what is yearning to emerge in you?
How can you lighten your load so you can do your sacred and necessary work?
What agreements and commitments have bloomed and faded and need to be composted?
Cast a soft gaze over your life and let your awareness lead you to how this is already showing up...
• Trying to keep too many balls (apples) in the air
• Feeling a pervasive sense of being behind, trying to catch up
• Feeling like your life doesn't fit who you are anymore, and an urgency to figure it all out
• Resenting those closest to you for your current situation
• Feeling ungrounded, outside of yourself
Taking it deeper...
What primary needs are making themselves known?
What do you love, but know you need to lay down (at least for now) to make way for what you need most right now?
Prioritizing can be difficult, but if you don't choose, it will be chosen for you, so, Spirit asks:
What is most important in this moment for your journey into the darkest time of the year?
What nourishment can your soul not go without?
What is calling out to you and resonating with you here and now?
A Healing Journey...
When you tap the button to the right, you'll be invited into a healing journey accompanied by drumming and creeksong.
Relax and use this time to sink into dream space.
In your minds eye, your heart's vision, go to the creek and lay down what you've chosen to shed and let it be cleansed. Or lay your body down in the creek and let whatever you're no longer needing, all your known and unknown weights be washed away...
