We are desperately holding onto life Not claiming it as our own We are bracing Ahead of ourselves One millisecond Or years? We are tense and gripping Replaying the past Lingering Dry Not here, now Not juicy Not rested easeful and in our power We are distracted Occupied With just about everything that is NOT our own experience The breath is caught up somewhere in the body We are sucking it in Clenching Can you feel it? Maybe it’s the jaw, maybe it’s the tongue Maybe it’s deeper Vocal cords? Heart? Vagus? The deep organs? How about the insides of the hips, on the inner swoops of your pelvis? Ya. There. Where our intentional thought and breath move, That’s where health vitality circulation and blood flow LIFE FORCE ENERGY When we infuse oxygen and SPIRIT into the depths of our body We initiate a deep unclenching Nourishing waters can begin to flow A kink that has persisted for generations Beings to soften A deep release A nourishing opening A surrendering A rested, easeful palm Open to the heavens And all of a sudden there’s room To take a deeper breath To allow more in There’s room to receive Unkinked, now the energetic channel is connected We are the connection point for Source to flow through us Unclenched we can offer love without strings We can receive the love that is always trying to penetrate our armor We can sit back and rest in the divine timing of our lives Unafraid, life becomes a game We play We let go We let in We can now claim this life as our own because we recognize our power We aren’t shying away We are learning to use it We begin to take responsibility for our power Because now we understand that we are witches and wizards We are creators and alchemists We are gods And we can’t risk being floppy or diffuse with our energy anymore We can’t risk being the victim anymore We can’t risk being unaware We can’t risk sitting in the passenger seat of our own lives for one more second Aint’ no one taking that wheel babe, but you It’s time to activate but wisdom tells us that our action is towards deep rest first Resting open Resting back Into ourselves and into the innate power of the divine pulsing through our very own veins Our action is deep nourishment first We turn inward We turn off the chattering outside world and begin to tune in To the wisdom that pulses at our very own center Wisdom evolved over the ages Intrinsic Connected to Source We know the wisdom truths live within our very own cells That the health of the world and its systems IS the direct reflection of the health of our very own bodies and souls So we journey inward With wild courage Compassion Self-love Ritual As above, So below As within, So without Together we rise, we heal, we journey This kind of intentional turning inward, This grit to face our own depths willingly and with great love, It echoes through time and space, It heals, Not only us but our sisters and brothers, Our parents and grandparents, Our children and grandchildren This healing makes WAVES in the pond of our collective!! Cannon ball, anyone?
