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.
