Here we are, living together in this world. Seen and unseen meshing.
Purifying the mind, body, and spirit takes effort. It is the task put before you. What prominent belief about yourself do you carry that inhibits you from being fully engaged in life, from showing up 100% of the time? Purify your heart by allowing yourself to breathe in and out blessings and forgiveness so that you can love more deeply.
Let yourself feel your grief – truly feel it – so that the rivers of your tears help cleanse the wounds in your soul.
Detoxify your body (the temple, and seat of the soul) by changing your diet, doing a cleanse, or simply drinking more water. Increasing the amount of water you drink, with appreciation for its purpose, will revitalize your spirit.
Whatever you suppress or deny and attempt to keep out of conscious awareness will show up somewhere and somehow. These are your shadow aspects. At one time, you put them out of your consciousness for good reason, yet they remain contained by shame and guilt. Sometimes these submerged aspects of self are projected onto others so that they mirror the suppressed parts of you, and you may even harshly judge these characteristics when you see them.
Now is the time to allow these elements to surface and embrace them. Whatever you have submerged deep inside of you, this is your opportunity to pay attention and welcome them to the family called “you”.
It is time for you to go on a vision quest. Spend a few hours or days in nature, in solitude praying or meditating. Wherever you go, take your question, concern, or challenge with you, allow it to float around in your consciousness, and watch what shows up.
You are in an intense process of emergence into the next cycle of your life. This shift is one of broadened and heightened perceptual capacities … surrender to the flow, allow yourself to move in to the next cycle of your life.
