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...
What did you shed out of simple necessity this winter?
What in you is aching for fresh air?
What is ready to be cleared away because it no longer feels like you?
What remains but needs a fresh start, new eyes or a new perspective?
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...
• shallowness of breath
• defensiveness over life decisions or beliefs
• isolation and loneliness
• anger about not achieving goals
• lapses of despair or hopelessness about life path or world events
Taking it deeper...
What do you know now (about yourself, your life) that you didn't know before (4-6 months ago)?
What simply takes your breath away, causes natural inspiration, the in-breath of excitement?
How can you add voice and breath to your intentions and inspiration, bridging the realm of Spirit to Earth? (Find a place to speak them aloud.)
Or, simply begin here:
"Even if I don't know what I want to do, I know I want to feel..."
Healing of feather and song...
Lay down whatever is ready to be cleansed with freshness here and now.
Let it be cleansed by the lightest feather, bathed in the first song of day.
