Planting Seeds (ceremony for personal growth)
I wanted to take a moment today and share about something that is near and dear to my heart: The magic of ceremony for personal and planetary growth!
Why do we participate in ceremony?
It can be for so many reasons. To call energy toward ourselves. To release habits, patterns, and beliefs. To emanate an energy into a part of our society, collective, and/or space. When we connect to the idea of participating in a ceremony or group event, we step into the process of aligning our energy for it. We think about the purpose of the gathering, what it means to us, and why we are drawn to participate in it. We have reflections of our growth and ideas of how we would like to expand. We have moments in our daily lives that inspire us to further examine and express the energy that you are bringing into focus. (Remember our peace ceremony preparations and how that topic came into our lives for thinking about and integration? That is an example of how this works.)
This short ceremony video and exercise were originally designed and delivered live form Imbolc, 2019. What is shared in here is great for ANY time that new influx energy is coming in, like during a gateway or a new moon. The concepts and the energy ideas shared in here work in all seasons.
As the day for your ceremony approaches approaches, I invite you to take a few moments and think about what you truly wish to cultivate in this gap between solstice and equinox. Is there a special project or skill you would like to grow? A quality of relationship you wish to shift?What about for the planet? What would you like to focus on calling in? More peace frequency? Unconditional love? Deeper relations with the elemental kingdom? What you wish to call forth is unique to you!As you begin focusing these energies, you may notice that crystal friends or animal gifts like feathers call out to you as ways to anchor the energy. For example, angel aura is great for working with unicorns. Crow feathers, always a favourite of mine, are great for finding the path through your own imbalance to light. As you allow yourself to bring together these items, you can create a little grid or configuration of them to call forth the energy coming in and apply it in ceremony and throughout the season.
