Five Reflections: Wind Element

17_1006 wind reflection

We can go to the wind to clear our head, to release the mindless chatter and to find new perspective.

Go outside and put your face to the wind.
Stand with your feet firmly planted.
Close your eyes and say hello.
Ask for a message, listen and learn.
Raise your arms up and out.
Move with the wind, as the wind.
Be flexible, relaxed and let the wind dance you.
Gentle whisper,
Howling gale,
Relentless pushing,
Wildly whipping,
Still presence.
In silence.
Become the wind.

Five Reflections: Water Element

We can go to the water and let it cleanse us and open our heart.

Take a small bowl of water into your hands.
Bless the water with your love.
Give some to a tree or plant and offer thanks.
Feel your heart open to connect with Life.
Take a sip and drink of this Life.
Feel it go down, supporting the life within your body.
Dip your fingers in and sprinkle some on your face.
Feel the drops refresh your skin.
Dip again and sprinkle some all around you – share the blessing.
Feel the joy of presence in this moment.

Warrior Wednesday – Space and Distance

boxers_1280

In each direction of the Warrior Attributes wheel, there are two attributes.  The first attribute carries the feminine energy and the second carries the masculine energy.  In each pair, you must have the feminine aspect mastered before you can step into and embody the masculine aspect.

The Warrior’s Attributes in the Southwest are space and distance. This refers to the gap between yourself and life’s experiences. When the action is happening and the cameras are rolling, space refers to how well you can stay open to the action and remain centered within yourself.

Distance refers to how close you will allow others (and life’s experience) inside your energy field. You will notice that a boxer constantly leads with short jabs, trying to gauge the space between himself and his opponent. When he determines the amount of space, he will know the distance he needs to cover in order to deliver his knock-down punch. When confronted with a closed symbol, do you need to create more space or close the gap in order to deal with it?
