It is only by grounding our awareness in the living sensation of our bodies that the 'I Am,' our real presence, can awaken. - G. I. Gurdjieff
Today we will take this moment to ground into the Earth. Chinese Medicine says the Earth gives us our blood and bones; Heaven our essence and spirit.
Here we go. I challenge you to take this moment, and be here, in the present moment. Inhale deeply and let your eyelids be heavy, feel your feet on the floor and your bum in your seat. Exhale.
Inhale deeply, exhale completely.
From there let your breath be normal and rhythmic.
Bring your attention to your feet and imagine that your feet are buried in the nutrient dense soil of the Earth. Root yourself into the stability that the Earth provides. Inhale and draw up the nourishment you need, into your blood and bones. Exhale, release and send any feelings of overwhelm, loneliness, anger, judgement, or fear back to the Earth. The Earth is the ultimate composter, send the shit to her, she will make it goodness once more.
Do it again, follow your breath, 5-10 times. 5-10 inhales, drawing up the life force energy that the Earth is so eager to share. 5-10 exhales, releasing the poo from you. (Bye, bye poo.) When you are done, I encourage you to sit and feel the good feelings you’ve created, cultivate a little more if you can.
You taking care of yourself, benefits us all. So, thank you for taking the time.
Until next time. Hugs. #thereisawaytostaysane #onepathtograce
