fire ceremony & plant medicine
🌿Angel created a small Fire in our backyard a couple of days ago before going away for work for 2 weeks.
I have been working with Myrrh Essential oil all week. I feel there is some energetic learning I need from this oil so it was really cool to integrate it with this fire.
I was staring at the fire and thought:
Whether you have been part of a Sweat Lodge guided by a Fire Keeper, built a campfire at a campsite or admired the candle's flame at your favorite spa, there is no denying the Transformative Powers of the Fire Element.
I created a simple ritual for myself with this Fire Ceremony using
~ Dried Lavender flowers and
~ Myrrh Essential Oil
Fire just makes you FEEL something doesn't it?
Needless to say, after my fire ritual powerful stuff came through!
And of course being a writer that just needs to write EVERYTHING down... I had to write really quickly to jot it all down.
And of course being a poet... a poem also came through.
Poems don't happen every day like they used to. So it was special
Poetry literally just comes THROUGH me... no thinking involved really, except for a little bit of editing after all the words stop flowing. Its a very interesting experience for me, sort of like an energetic purge.
I will have to write more about this in the future... and share this new poem next time too!
Here is a poem I wrote a few years ago if your curious about my poetry:
...but back to FIRE.
I've gotta say that after 15 years of Healing and Wisdom received from these plant allies hav the greatest teaching I have received is TRUSTING MY INTUITION.
Its so easy to overthink everything, especially when we are attracted to certain things and experiences.
It's so easy to ignore our needs and desires and dismiss our INTUITION because we may label and perceive it as "unimportant".
This is what I used to think when CREATING MY OWN SELF CARE RITUALS.
Now I know better!
But this sort of thinking still gets in the way of allowing my POETRY to come through me.
But I want to remind you to LISTEN!
Your Intuition is EVERYTHING! Sure hard work and education is important but so is confidence in the decisions you make. And so is SHARING YOUR GIFTS with the world.
When I allow myself to "energetically purge" on paper, I not only feel so much freer and grounded but I am also much more productive with my everyday tasks. So please allow your true nature and creativity to flow!
I love when people share their art and creations and their heart with me.
Why not be the one to open up and share too right??!
So what I know for sure these days is that the more you practice saying YES to experiences, things and people that bring you joy or are simply curious about, the more you will get to know yourself and create healthy boundaries. Creating healthy boundaries is essential for reducing anxiety and overwhelm and facing challenges with confidence. Because of course, finding the courage to try new things and create change isn't always easy!
So here we go,
TRY THIS OUT!
Just a few minutes of mindfulness practices like these... and over time you will start to see some major shifts and transformation happen!
... if that is what you are searching for, of course.
