Winter Affirmation Week 3
Tools to dig deep into the transformative energy available in connection with this season!
Allowing my depths to arise and guide,
I dream of my body’s beauty.
There was a time I confused beauty with validation by others.
I saw myself only through the remarks of others.
In their criticisms, I saw only failure.
In their judgments, I felt only lack.
Then one day my perspective changed.
Now, I see me through my own eyes.
Instead of failure, I see effort to find truth.
Instead of lack, I see the beauty of my capacity.
In the new view, I understand me.
Those outside words were reflections of their inner fears.
Released, I now have clear view of my body’s beauty.
Spark Notes: writing prompts to spark reflection and contemplation
I feel less than when…
I am ashamed of my body because. …
I feel I can shift these habits about my body because…
These are the words I now choose to describe me…
In this moment, for me I can dream…
Earth Mother, you who are called by a thousand names. May all remember we are cells in your body and dance together.
The Transformative Energy of Winter
In the season of Winter, the Soul digs deep into the soil to connect with the creative seeds of dream, hope, and desire.
This is not about determining the exact steps of a path, instead this is about allowing the path to move toward you with gift, presence, and awakening.
Allow the essence of you to step forward, to be heard, to be attended to, to guide.
Within the transformative energy of Winter is time to DREAM.
To Dream: Allowing the depths to arise and guide.
In dream, you don’t hold back.
Instead, the motion of Winter is one of attention and awareness to the roots within as they prepare to give rise to the vision of heart and soul.
Winter holds the warmth of roots to be passed back as the growth of Spring requires nutrition.
The new growth makes a choice about presence and progression, making decisions about shape and expression within the warmth of Summer.
And as the sun completes her journey, the soul reaches to embrace new growth yielding clear intention for next steps, new journey.
As Winter progresses, the inward flow begins the motion out toward the claim of Spring and the outward unleashing of Summer.
The entire year is fueled by Winter dreams.
Your Best Self expands and redefines the path, the journey, the dream of life.
In Winter, allowing the depths to arise guides your Best Self to the dreams of all of you, body, mind, heart, and soul.Excerpt from Winter: Dream the Arising of Your Best Self
