Natural Law - November 2021
We are all self-governing.
Let us call upon our ancestors, Elders and teachers - past and present,
to guide us in the way of the Heart.
You are all my relations. All is One.
Namaste: The Spirit in me, Sees the Spirit in You
There is a juicy portal opening up, can you feel it?
This is a magical doorway of reclamation. What is it that has been hiding in the shadows, or suppressed in the dark? I am not talking about some shallow detail. I am pointing to the deepest yearnings of your body and soul, that have been present for as long as you can remember. It is likely these desires belonged to your ancestors before you.
As multi-dimensional, multi-faceted Beings, we have myriad ways to explore and express who we are. However, often we feel boxed in - captive to limited and confined messages of ‘how we should be’. These (often) unspoken and unconscious rules come from cultural conditioning, including colonisation, and can involve: family and extended family roles and norms, religious/spiritual teachings and wider societal norms.
Now we have an opportunity to break-free of a deeply-set template, that we have taken on, yet have now outgrown. In fact, this ingrained pattern holds us back from experiencing freedom and joy. Great courage and focus, is required to trust the emerging foundations of strength and safety, to dissolve this outdated frame, and expand into the new horizons that beckon us.
Make no mistake, this is ALL about self-sovereignty.
Slow down, have your feet on the ground, body in the water – flow and breathe. Take two steps forward and one step back. Do not be discouraged. It is a process, stay with it. Presence.
“The mind is a wonderful servant, but a terrible master” (Robin Sharma)
Above all, begin to re-program your mind with the ideas and beliefs that will gently shift you into a new paradigm of Being. The energy is perfect for this transformation now. Use prayer, meditation, visualisation, intentions, affirmations, ritual and ceremony to change your reality for the better. Bust out!
For those wanting to sit in Circle, a beautiful Sister, Sally Davis and I, are offering a 4wk Online Intention Circle Series. We welcome all who feel woman, from anywhere in the world, to join us.
