· More & More we will be called upon to hold the container for others & ourselves. It is not really an option to set it down and forget it anymore…our purpose is to stay on task while listening to our guidance and wisdom, stay in the center of our wheel accepting help from all directions, elements, kingdoms.
· Being grounded allows us to hold more energy, light, and/or feeling - Otherwise it just washes through and is gone. Don’t wait till the end of the day to evaluate where you are. Once an hour, take three deep breaths, stretch, do a body check, etc…
· Introduce yourself before Prayer - *see if you get different results*
This last one really jumped out at me. How often DO we introduce ourselves? Depending on our contact with others, I know it varies. However, It made me think about the fact that I don’t introduce myself to my friends…they already know who I am. I hardly ever claim my-self to mySelf, it seems odd to me. So how do our guides know whom they are coming to assist? How do we claim our Selves in our prayers? How do we communicate with spirit? Do we just assume that spirit knows who we are?
Look at your own name. Look up its meaning. Think about how formal you are with yourself and others’ names. I think this is a really interesting and fun experiment to practice through these next couple of weeks.
As we continue the gathering of the *Harvest of our Selves* and our Intentions we planted this spring… think about how that reveals who you really are. The harvest can sometimes look very different from the planting…especially when you are harvesting the wisdom of yourself on this path of purpose and Love.
