Week One - Sitting in Stillness


You will be guided through this practice.  Sitting in the silence is so important.  It sounds easy, but if you have never tried to do it then you might find that your mind is a very busy, noisy place to be in.  With practice and relaxation, however, it can become a powerful state of peace which can be your centre of control.

Week Two - Forgiveness


Past pain,  blame, and shame imprison us, while forgiveness releases their hold, freeing us to love and receive again.  In this practice you start by finding forgiveness for yourself, because it is when we can forgive ourselves that we can forgive others.  

Week Three- Chief and Tribe

We all have many aspects of the self or personalities within us.  The ultimate goal is to stay anchored in chief and check in and receive information as needed from our many other selves that are needed for survival but not necessarily to run the show.  (Inspired by Christine Dennis, Medical Herbalist)
Week Four - Heart Breath 

The Heart Breath is a fundamental practice that has so many applications and variations and infinite value.  It is a practice that grows with us and stays with us as a tool to manage what life throws us.

New Moon Heart Breath Meditation


I would like to offer this audio recording as another free gift during the Covid 19 crisis.  I wrote it for a New Moon Meditation that focuses on setting intentions or dreaming of what's next for you.  In these uncertain times we are all being called to reflect on how we want to move forward from here.  So new moon or not it is never to late to dream and set intentions.  We create our lives...

This meditation is based on The Heart Breath which is a powerful practice where you become centered and focused, developing and directing your intention from the heart. The heart breath was initially published in Alchemical Healing by Nicki Scully and I have found that it has infinite potential.

This is the spider journey from Nicki Scully's book, Power Animal Meditations.  

Spider

Awe/Weaving the Creation

Spider teaches us how to endure within our present reality while at the same time comprehending our individual relationship to creation in its entirety - her web is a metaphor for the thoughts that express our inner landscape.  

We all spin webs of energy that we project into the world in all directions and through all dimensions.  Like the threads spun from the substance of spiders own body, each of our energy waves carries our unique vibration or signature.  These patterns are a composite of everything we are and know and have touched.  

Spiders communicate with one another by plucking on different strands of their webs, which sets up vibrations that are seen, felt, and heard throughout the universe.  The slightest vibration registers across the web.  All this information is shared - endlessly.

Spider knows how to walk her own web - which threads to grasp, and which to avoid.  Spider does not place sticky threads at the centre of her web, for that is the centre of her self.  Some of our thoughts are sticky also, and they can entangle us in the way that Spider's sticky threads ensnare her prey.  By example, Spider teaches us about discernment - she helps us know which thoughts to hand on to and which to pass by.  

You can always call on Spider for clarity of vision when you feel caught in the threads of your mind.
