My 4 legged 24/7 companion pup (Daly) and I have just returned from a Sunday afternoon nature hike that restored my Spirit and reminded me, deep in every cell that magic and beauty are one constant in life.
As we hiked carefully through the woods, I delighted in the abundance of spring gifts and blooms that greeted us with their fresh energy. Wild violets, merry bells, trillium, bloodroot, morel mushrooms, ramps (wild onion), and wild ginger all bursting into the energy field. Birds – so many birds – Canadian geese, snow geese, trumpeter swans, herons, eagles, hawks, osprey, wood ducks, mallard ducks, songbirds were out and about rejoicing in the energies of Spring.
So Many Abundant Gifts of Life!
As we concluded our hike, Daly observed (dogs are the greatest teachers of mindful presence) as I completed a few energy centering stretches and sang my made-up spontaneous gratitude song to thank the Universe, the Earth, and all the Spirit totems in our presence.
All of these Magical Gifts hold the Energy of Spring
When we bring them into our body through our senses, they become the fuel of gratitude that fills our cells with the gifts of gifted vitality, connection, and life-force. Like the seasons, our collective energy field is constantly changing and shifting.
Recently, my ENERGY practices gifted me with some clarity about these unexplainable shifts, which I am diving into with this blog. After experiencing the last month’s doozy of a roller coaster, I now understand more fully why the message for April emphasized the need for centering and grounding to guide us through May.
We are the Micro Within the Macro Cosmic Energy Field
These unexplainable shifts are related to the macro energy field that has settled into our own micro energy field, which can profoundly affect us mentally, physically, emotionally, and energetically. This ever-changing macro energy is the Cosmic Energy Field.
Every moon cycle carries a unique vibration created by the movement of all of the planets within the greater universal energy field that we exist within. Let’s also remember that the earth is also a planet and part of the larger macro field. The earth holds and contains all of our individual and collective energies, and so we experience the earth’s energetic shifts in the patterns of storms, wind, rain, ley line shifts, pressure releases through earthquakes, volcanic eruption, tsunamis, hurricanes, avalanches, and more. The energetic releases of the planet upon which we dwell are the earth’s way of self-centering while assisting all beings who dwell upon and within the earth.
We are all Part of and One with the Whole
These continuously occurring energy shifts affect us powerfully and because we are the micro within the macro. We evolve when we learn to adapt, pivot, and flex continuously within this ever-changing and ever-evolving Cosmic Energy Field. Sometimes this cosmic energy field feels gooey and gentle, sometimes it feels rough and fierce; some are easy for the human energy field to resonate with and some push our energy fields to our furthest edge.
For me April was all of that.
I hope you are able to meet with the magic of Spring this month with even more mindfulness and self-kindness through self-centering.
Energy Practice: Mindfulness = Breath
To check in with how you are doing energetically and whether you are centered and grounded, check in with yourself.
- Am I mindful, or am I distracted and frazzled?
- Am I breathing?
- Am I breathing fully, deeply, and diaphragmatically?
- Am I holding my breath?
- Is my breathing steady, slow, and smooth?
- Is my breathing anchoring me in my center?
Mindfulness is achieved with the energy of our breath. With each mindful breath, we are gifted with vitality, juicy fresh energy, and abundance. Breathing in through our nose, we bring the energy of the breath in through many other places in our energy bodies; our chakras, our aura, the mingmen point, and our kidneys, through the Wellspring of Life acupoint on the foot soles (souls).
Energetic Practice for Self Centering
- Standing with feet at hip-distance.
- Place one hand on your abdomen with thumb at the navel center and your other hand over your third eye on your forehead.
- Inhale slowly through the nose, pause at the top of the inhale, s l o w l y exhale through the mouth. Repeat 3 times.
- Next, inhale through the nose slowly, pause at the top of the inhale, s l o w l y exhale through the nose, allowing that energy to fill your cells, body, mind, heart space, whole being. Imagine this abundant energy recharging your cells, body, and being like charging a battery. Receiving the gifts of energy, vitality, and abundance.
