Imagine how a flower grows in the ground strong and true. See the stem, leaves and petals. This plant connects with the earth, and somehow starts shooting skyward, finding the light, and becoming beauty. Imagine the power required to push the earth and stand as tall as possible, with the aid of the light and the earth.
I often tap into the light from our sun and that of surrounding stars for energy and healing. You'll often hear me talk about the light within us and around us as essential to our lives. I recently had a healing with David Manning, where together we tapped into a deep, deep earth energy. The same energy that flowers tap into to grow straight up out of the earth. It felt warm and cozy, yet strong and capable. It was a place where I could rest from all of my stories, and just be still and calm. There is a power in this energy that I had not tapped into before. I feel centered at my core, embodying empowerment, ready to create. My entire body is not nearly as rattled as usual, and I am sleeping better. All from the depths of our earth, where it is very very dark. The dark had always been a scary place for me. Through this experience, I learned that there is joy in these dark depths, if only we are willing to go there. Joy even in the deepest and darkest places!
David created a meditation out of this experience. I encourage you to give it a try.
