Self-care is going to be at the top of my priorities list this year and it is going to happen through the body. What I mean is that my relationship with the body is going to upgrade to a more solid, reaffirming and grounding way. In other words my experiences of the world here on Earth are to be embodied. As I write this I feel super connected to everything that I am and I pledge to pay attention to all parts equally with respect, care and love.
Grounding through the body IS the thing that will be very important in the months to come and when some years are and have been about spiritual development and connection this one is about the physical and redefining and transforming your connection to all that our body is.
I feel this will create a good foundation for the period of my life that has already started. Hormonal adjustments will be taking place within my strong vessel from here onwards and I aim to apply all approaches towards riding the wave of change, which are cognitive, emotional and spiritual. For me, these are exciting times facing challenges but also developing deeply felt compassion towards myself and my body more specifically.
The first element to engage with will be the Earth. Just as it is with home, finances and security it will be with how do my feet feel when I am planted on the ground. How do I walk and move. Exercising through my feet will be important and taking care of joints and skin on my legs and feet. The colour is brown, grey, darkish pond green and earthy reds. I hold a lot of tension in my legs, which I discovered last year and my first treatment to engage with will be reflexology.
More to come on this subject.
What if I just flow…
With the wind in the wildest place
With water soft as silk the colour of silver
With green pine needles fragrant with essence
What if I become it…
The place where love is the only religion
That breathes deep nature spirit for eternity
All is well the land whispers into my soul spreading her seasons around me
Go well in my soothing presence and know your belonging in the deepest roots of all creation
Can nature heal
Can earth bring us back to our knees and pierce its ancient dagger through the heart
Can nature teach you who you are
Can a bird song inspire, delight and speak of both sorrow and joy
Can river wash away the debris of the worldly matter
Can mountain hold you in such a way you never wobble again
Can spring flowers inject a hope into our being
Can roaming animal body remind us of the raw wilderness within
Can the falling snow cover us in sheer enchantment
Can rain drops on the skin put us in touch with our bodies
Can a flight of an eagle inspire strength and power waiting to take flight inside of us
Can God bow before its majesty and weep tears of love
What is it that nature does and doesn’t that makes our lives worth living and speaks of meaning old as centuries
Of nature we are born and to its body we return
As outside so is within
What can be more life, meaning, strength and delight all at the same time
Nature is magic and matter, spirit and body
Bones and blood, skin and intelligence
One place we become whole, we come home, we know what we are
A virgin bride or a silver-haired crone
Who rules the stillness of the white majesty
The elegance of lace and ice that envelopes nature brings such quietness, such pause to a restless soul
Majestic awe of land covered in white purity
Like a fresh breath of spirit rooted in landscape
Orange and pink sunrises and sunsets bring immense uplifting to all senses
Only in winter nature one feels reborn from the depth of darkness emerging brand new and wise in knowing true appreciation of life and death
