Ceremonies are Powerful
August 8, 2010
This is my favourite place to create ceremonies...
Here are my beautiful little gifts and talents before I planted them...
Then, with the very clear intention of re-seeding, watering and nurturing the seeds that were already alive within us we each found a very special spot to 'plant' our collection of beauties. I chose a spot tucked away under some boulders perfectly centered with the view towards my beloved boulders on my favourite beach. As I was digging the hole and planting them I was running through my talents and gifts in my mind and even left room for some that hadn't occur to my mind yet so that the most expansive me possible was being intended...
After this we sat and Marjie took us through
the chakras toning and then we meditated.
We could all be aware of our dreams and see what
bubbles up from our subconscious selves in the next couple of days so
that we have something more to work with with when the next New Moon
is upon us.
These are some photos of our past ceremonies...
1. Feb 28 - Full Moon - Red Cosmic Dragon
Part of our ceremony consisted of burying ourselves
in the sand at the ocean's edge and then being washed over by the purifying
waves then kneeling for a long, glorious time in meditation while the
waves washed gently and then more fiercely over us. Wowwww. I remember
it feeling so natural at the end to lean forward, stretching both my
arms out in front of me, pressing into the sand with my hands until
I was kneeling and outstretched...my heart was filled with total gratitude
to the earth for having me! Thank you thank you thank you beautiful
earthly Earth! This pose was pure love of this gorgeous physical world!
Marjie filled me in on the fact that my pose WAS, in fact, the Gratitude
pose! ha! Well, now I know why!
I just had to have a fire with the starry stars above me igniting harmony in my heart!
1. March 15 - New Moon - Yellow Lunar Warrior
Wow, we created a stunning ceremony for this New Moon. A square for stability and the 4 directions was drawn in the sand then a heart within that (for Yellow Warriors Hearts Desire) - then we decorated our respective hearts with flowers found round and about and then we sat in the middle facing south and meditated. Marjie, followed her inner promptings to spontaneously take us through some poses and there, arched back in the middle of my heart, I felt a whole bunch of popping-releasing sensations coming from my Solar Plexus area....in my minds eye I saw all these 'hearts desires' that I didn't even know existed (just like I didn't know I'd want to live in Mexico before I was guided to come here!) being seeded around me. Ooooh so exciting. New possibilities that hadn't even occurred to me yet! Open to new heart's desires!
Of course, part of our ceremony included playful hopscotch on the beach! We also poked blue jellyfish with sticks. :) Hahaha.
