Mindfulness

Image

Springtime in Texas begins. All of us are positioning our eyes, to see through the newness of blossoms and more light. Our excited bodies ready to enter our bathing suits. The yang is returning. The sun and the moon hold each other equally for another equinox. I hold both day and night as well. I hold the conscious and the unconscious together too. As much as I love being out in the sun I love sleeping, and exploring my inner world.

Every day I ask myself if I am dreaming. Every evening I create dream incubation ritual. I practice taking different spagyrics tinctures before entering REM. I anoint the soles of my feet with a dream oil. Mugwort, white roses, mullein, lavender, kyanite, and rose quartz. These herbs and crystals soothe and prepare my senses for what’s coming.  Its a small but important ritual in practicing careful mindfulness. Because I care for myself I want to remember my dreams – to explore the way I feel in them, the textures, the creatures, the lost, the present.

I explore the elements here.

Anointing and preparing oneself to enter the unconscious for deep dreaming.

Golden Tiger / Armor

Golden Tiger

Armor for growth & positive thinking, to discourage ill will or wishes. Think of Durga riding the tiger, facing the demon and protecting virtue.  The word Durga has been derived from Sanskrit language which means a fort or a place that is difficult to reach. She rises above in power because she steps intimately into the ring of fire and sees eye ball to eye ball with the shadows.

Harmony Heart Health - Holistic thoughts

“The struggle most lovers live through, on some level, is the harmonizing between our soul purpose, i.e. our desire to connect, and our earth purpose., i.e. our need to individuate. Finding a way to integrate the two is the basic challenge of a spiritually mature love.”

“The answer here is to hold form, but to hold it lightly, like a very simple frame around a beautiful picture.”
