Coming back to one of my favourite themes of grounding and strengthening this week. Letting go of the restless thoughts or anxiety to feel grounded on the earth. The nurturing earth energy giving us strength and courage. Practicing some lovely mudras for letting go and for courage.
We’ve just passed the Celtic festival of Lammas or Lughnasa, which reminds us to think about the harvest from the earth, and also to think about what we’re harvesting in our own lives so far this year. Seeing the swathes of warm gold cornfields, reflect on what’s been golden in your own life. Do you need to let go, or to face up to something? Stand barefoot on the earth and feel that you belong. Know that you can reap your own harvest from being in your own unique place on the earth. Feel gratitude for who you are.
“Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers,
but to be fearless facing them.
Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain,
but for the heart to conquer it”
