Day 15: Red Chestnut
Oracle Card for the Day: Sulis ~ Bodies of Water
Meditation: 13 minutes // No sound // Kangse (Ending bell)
Notes: Go back to Canada. Share the remedies. Yin yoga teacher training in Calgary. Teach at the YYC YMCA for experience before returning back to London. Cat and Essentialism: 19 goals for 2019, with 1 essential goal and then 18 others to support that goal. My essential goal: Be one with my heart (like The Alchemist how he can hear it >>> learn to listen). 18 other goals to support my numero uno:
Drink more water (channel Sulis) so that the vibrations of my heart can make waves throughout my body.
Go to bed early (before 10:30pm) to rest it. If my heart is rested, and my ears and my brain are then I can better hear my heart.
Meditate at least 10 minutes everyday. Spend time awakening the little ghost in my chest hollow and build the trust that it is safe now. Safe to come out and connect.
Go inside my body through movement daily. Set my intentions, feel where I am rigid and inspire it to beat faster, stronger, louder. Ignite.
Take a flower remedy daily and just observe.
Follow the sparks of joy (the whispers of my heart) without any other intention. Find the little reflections of light that exist in things that I do and when one beams, thank my heart for showing me. Gratitude.
Release emotions. Especially tears. Always make time and space, ignore the ego and welcome the need to express. Patiently invite my heart to the blank canvass everyday.
To make expression my top priority everyday. Right now.
Eat food to heal my heart and help it beat. Combination of soul cravings and nourishment form the Earth.
Read more books, especially those that enlighten and/or entertain.
Spend time with my family, in the flesh. Most importantly of these people: my mum :D <3
Receive all the offers of nature and show gratitude by sharing space and air with it. Be in the wild.
Further expose my heart to classical music to sync the the rhythms of my heart. Shamanic healing is in all of us.
Share my heart with friends who my heart summons and with those who support it’s growth.
Fill my sacred space with the energy of life (plants! plants!! plants!!!)
Run 3/week as an offering to my heart and the Universe thanking the powers at be for gift of being alive.
Surround myself in the meditative spaces of swimming and/or yoga as often as I can. The water is external energy, yoga is internal <<< my own philosophy. Enjoy both in balance.
Take time daily for the divine to come through: journalling, oracles, and dates with myself.
(And one more for good luck!) Trust that my heart will lead me to financial abundance.
Mindful Moment: My first ever conversation where I consciously tried to shut down my brain and communicate from my heart. Even though I was at work, I took the time to create a space for my emotions to fester, bubble up, takeover, and release. This marks the beginning of putting my heart first.
I was overwhelmed with the emotions of others. I have questioned my empathy in the past (maybe even daily) and today I felt the wave of inferior feelings wash over me and at first I wanted to run away, then I wanted scream condescending words, and then I was left wanting for nothing more than to hug everyone who felt less-than from the place in my heart where I have felt this many times before. Especially from a parent growing up who - sometimes I think their entire purpose of existence is to - remind(s) me that I am not enough. I could feel the inner children in the room, of the others and I wanted to hug them in the physical as adults but intertwine with them in the spiritual as children.
The Pick: Narrowed down a shortlist and then I just chose one from the bundle.
