from this morning's reiki meditation, on sovereignty and healing:
Last week, I found this post from trauma therapists Nell and Tish of @twinpowerment and I wanted to share their wisdom with you! These are ways you can hold yourself and give yourself loving touch physically! Yes it is possible. Several of these holds are similar to where you place your hands when you are giving reiki to yourself. I am particularly fond of the chest/solar plexus hold personally. What's your favorite? Let us know in the comments!
Forgiveness! Letting go of resentment! Quieting the battle within! These are our humble directives this week. Practice kindness, practice understanding, and most of all stop fighting against yourself! Check out the video to learn more about the lessons of these two cards and let us know what you think in the comments!
Juicy medicine about play, wisdom, and creativity comes through in this week's pick a card! Check out the revealed answers after the jump!
Wednesday night I went live again with What's Your Sign Podcast for a new moon meditation! But if you missed it, don't fret. Today and tomorrow are perfect days for setting intentions and ritual for the mo(o)nth ahead; new moon intention setting is most effective when a sliver of the moon appears in the sky. Take this time to bring your dreams down to earth! I am including the text from yesterday's meditation below. Use this it now or anytime to help ground yourself and connect to your body and the earth. Check it out after the jump!
My face above illustrates how I felt when I pulled the two of pentacles reversed today! We are in the midst of a real challenging time and it's up to us to be very on top of our self-care and well-being as we move through this. It will literally make all the difference in the world. In this week's update, some real talk from Spirit comes through! I talk about a little bit about the destabilizing energies of Uranus in Taurus, self-care and balance in times of disaster, and the failings of our political and government systems. Leave a comment to let us know your thoughts and how you are taking care of yourself during this time!
Happy new moon in Taurus! I am reposting this original lesson and meditation on the tarot card The Empress. I originally created it for Venus' move into Libra back in October and I am sharing it again today to help root our work with this powerful new moon. Venus is the ruler of the Empress and is also the ruling planet of Taurus! Times are dark right now. Use this meditation to connect to your source of love and abundance in this world!
This week we are picking from the Visions crystal oracle deck again! Check out the cards and the description of their energies from the guidebook after the jump.
If you didn't already see on social media, starting today, I will be offering free/donation-based reiki meditation sessions for the collective every Wednesday live on my Instagram page! For the next several weeks, you can join me at 11:11 am PST/1:11 pm CST for the session. All you need to bring is yourself and an open heart.
Before I got started, I pulled the 5 of wands and used that card to set the intention of centering our inner voice and passion. You can read the text for the meditation after the jump!
I pull two cards this week, the 4 of cups and Cactus Quartz from the Visions crystal oracle deck! I dive into working with ancestors, the chaotic thrill- seeking of the emotional body, and maintaining energetic boundaries through it all. This is a really important message right now as the planet shifts tremendously, changing our realities as we know it. I loved sharing this download with you this week, let me know what you think in the comments!
