Each month we meet in sacred circle to support and share from our hearts. This year we are focusing on transformation--setting intentions each month that are remembered and revisited at the next circle. Supporting and holding each other accountable. Bearing sacred witness to our transformation as individuals and as a circle. We are exploring by moving through the seven main chakras and five elements. We draw on Western astrology, moon energy, seasonal shifts, Vedic astrology, and Mayan energy of the day; as well as Buddhism, shamanism, and channeled guidance. Each circle we have a Reflection and a Goal.
We started a journey of transformation in January, beginning with the root chakra, the foundation. This is where we got grounded, centering into the New Year and our commitment to transformation. We asked ourselves, “What is it we most desire to transform? Are we open to big transformation and all that it may bring? Are we holding back or getting in our own way?” The Reflection for January was “Where do you stand in your life right now, what needs to transform?” The Goal was to get Clarity on what and how to begin our personal transformation.
In February we moved to the second chakra, the sacral chakra. The seat of passion, lust, desire, creativity, birthing, sensuality, birthing the new you, creating the dreams that will manifest in 2018 with passion and a fiery desire to transform. We discussed flow and feeling and desire. Asked ourselves, “What is missing? What do we desire?” The color of the second chakra is orange, it is the color of divine feminine energy. The divine feminine energy is our vitality, which brings flexibility and fluidity in our mind, heart, body, and spirit thus allowing us to feel pleasure, joy, love, healing energy and be present in our heart and body. The Reflection for February was, “What steps have happened naturally as a result of getting clear on transformation?” The Goal was to get passionate and committed to our transformation, to look deeply at what we truly desire.
And now it is March and we were unable to meet in physical circle, but I felt you all in the etheric realms and I held the space for us. We are moving up to the third chakra, the solar plexus, the center from which we express our will. The third chakra is the source of personal power, self-belief and worth. It is from here that we radiate our power in the world and take responsibility for our life. In the seasonal cycles here in the Northeast US we are approaching spring. Springtime is a time to put ourselves out there, express our will. Express who we really want to be at this time of new growth and beginnings. How will you express your true self to your family, friends, and colleagues? What small or big steps can you take or what do you wish to change to be more authentic? Our Reflection is, “Did adding a passion for change and transformation bring more concrete results? Were you able to keep the passion alive and take some steps to go after your desires?” The Goal is to set one, two, or three concrete ways that we desire to change to be more authentic, setting the direction and making real world decisions. The visualization that I will post in the next blog was intended to help us embody the changes and transformation of what we desire. To feel them in our solar plexus, our gut, to feel our confidence and personal power grow stronger. To feel in our bodies the rightness and beauty of achieving our desires.
I invite you to take a few minutes out of your full (so much nicer than the word “busy”) lives in the next week or so to do this meditation. You can ask someone to read it to you, you can record it on your phone and play it back for yourself, and maybe if I come in from walking the land, I will try to record it for you. Enjoy!
