Snuggle up, take out a favorite pen and paper...
Spend five minutes or more with these questions.
Let your hand flow freely and see what comes.
The Medicine of East asks...
How can you hold the holiness of yearning?
What dreams ache to be seen in the light?
What unsolvable problems yearn for space to breathe?
Where is your rational mind in over-drive, trying to figure out, make right, or force to get done?
Cast a soft and loving gaze over your life to see how these things might be showing up in the shadows, asking for your attention...
• Frustrations with current life circumstances
• Confusion about what to choose and what lies ahead
• Feeling behind, not enough, or too late
• Rampant "shoulding" of self and/or others
• Perfectionism preventing daily tasks from getting done
Taking it deeper...
Looking back at your life, where can you identify times of wrestling and yearning that came just before important and necessary change?
Looking back 3-6 months, when have you asked for change, said, "I want things to look, feel, be different"?
Transformation looks like waves of frustration and exhaustion, inspiration followed by rest.
What creative and new ways can you cultivate restfulness and enough-ness in your life right now?
What one thing can you do (or not do) today to make rest happen?
A Healing Ceremony...
When you tap the button on the right you'll be invited into a healing journey I recorded just for you.
You've named some of your yearnings, frustrations and unsolvables above; now, let them be seen, known and held.
Relax and use this time to sink into dream space.
In your minds eye, your heart's vision, lay down at the edge of the forest.
Snow still clings to the north side of trees, the first light of day peeks emerges in the East...
