Its roots are deeply grounded,
attend the feast offered by Earth.
Its branches reach for the sky.
The trunk is
with circles of life.
Its leaves are life-giving,
offer a place to hide.
leave the tree bare
as if dead
But making room
for new life,
I am so thankful for what I have learned the last couple of days. Doubt has turned into assurance, fear has turned into hope Darkness has become light The coldness was only imagined, reality is filled with warmth. I bow in all directions for the challenge, the guiding signs and the support the universe offers. Clarity is revealed through contrasts.
Wild flowers i have fed
Om Bhur Bhuvaḥ Swaḥ
Bhargo Devasya Dhīmahi
Dhiyo Yonaḥ Prachodayāt
We meditate on the creator, whose divine light illumines all realms. May this divine light illumine our intellect.
May the long time sun
Shine upon you,
All love surround you,
And the pure light within you
Guide your way on.
Salutations to the friend of all
Salutations to the shining one
Salutations to he who induces activity
Salutations to he who illumines
Salutations to he who moves quickly in the sky
Salutations to the giver of strength
Salutations to the golden, cosmic womb
Salutations to the Lord of the Dawn
Salutations to the son of Aditi, the cosmic Mother
Salutations to the Lord of Creation
Salutations to he who is fit to be praised
Salutations to he who leads to enlightenment
The Next 24 hours, nature will show us two opposites from each their powerful side.
the 20th of June 2016 is the time of the June full moon, which is also known as Honey moon, rose moon and strawberry moon. Today is the day of the year when the moon will be lowest on the Horizon, and it might glow with amber rays and look extremely big. Full moons always rays energies that generate emotions for some people. This moon is extra powerful, whereby I recommend that you take a moment to center yourself.
Tomorrow, June 21, is summer solstice in the North- the longest day of the year, the day where the sun is highest on the sky.
In other Words: these 24 hours is the first time in 70 years that the moon and sun are so close to being directly opposed to each other
Within spiritual traditions the moon represents calmness, softness, coolness and femininity; the sun represents power, heat, light, speed, masculinity
the body is often seen as a micro cosmos, a replication of the universe
the five elements earth, Water, fire, air and ether are all replicated in the body
in Indian tradition the spine is a replication of Mountains, blood and energy lines as rivers, the Heart is seen as a cave with a sacred alter. on the alter glows a flame (agni), and the flame is your drive or your passion. the sun (fire for life) and the moon (nectar of life) melt together in your Heart.
The World is made up of opposites, and ideally they are balanced. Without contrasts the World would be boring.
moon drishti: take time to gaze on the moon, gaze on an image of the moon or visualize it. The moon rays helps self reflection, and to create Peace of mind.
find a piece of paper
write: “I accept my personal journey, where ever it takes me and has taken me”
When I meditate on the Heart chakra “Anahata”, I often visualize a pink hip rose midst bright green leaves (the colors of anahata). In Denmark, hip is a true symbol of summer, and they often grow on the beaches. As a child, my mom would decorate my hair with hip roses when we went walking along the coast. Thus, to me hip evokes feelings of warmth, relaxation, home and comfort.
I imagine that its colors and beauty fill my Heart, and then flow from my Heart to every cell of my body, filling my body with love, compassion and warmth. If I have trouble doing it, I think of a situation in which a person showed me love, and I let myself dwell with the memory for a moment.
When my own body has been filled with these qualities, I imagine a friend, acquaintance or just somebody I have seen, who I want to offer my loving thoughts. I imagine the colors, love, compassion and warmth raditating from my body to theirs. The power is so strong that I can fill up each and every cell of the person I think of with love.
Thirdly, the flow can be radiated out to the whole world.
“Ahum Prema” I am unconditional love
Scientifically, the electromagnetic field of the Heart is 5000 times bigger than that of the brain (Shiva Rea 2014:25).
