Manifesting at the level of the sacred
At the level of the sacred, everything is possible. Our task is to decide what our destiny is, sow that seed in our hearts, and allow for possibility.
The Tarot card Ace of Swords, is often illustrated as a hand coming through the clouds (seemingly out of the blue), handing us a gift. This card represents a new beginning, new ideas, intuition, third eye, truth, a new (or renewed) force of will and mental energy. It is a card of victory and success. Often times, the golden opportunities of our lives emerge from a direction we did not foresee. Manifestation is all about working with emerging energies. It is about balance and synchronicity. When synchronicity happens we get what we need without asking the universe for what we want, sometimes without knowing that's what we needed. Everything in our lives is a co-creation whether we are aware of it or not. We need the forces of the universe to work with us in order to be successful. There must be an ongoing dialogue with the sacred for us to be able to sow the seeds of our destiny, our great work, and enjoy a bountiful harvest.
We sow the seeds in our heart, because nothing of value and lasting character manifests unless it is backed up by a true heart’s desire. It is easy to confuse our will with the wishes of others, or think that a certain career is what we ought to be doing. When I was in my early twenties, I decided to study law. It looked really good on paper and my father was a well meaning, highly energetic supporter of my academic career. No matter how hard I tried to motivate myself with my thinking mind, the voice of my heart would always speak louder and I finally gave up after two long years of going against my inner wisdom. Studying law was not an authentic desire for me. I had other passions in life that demanded my attention. Fiery passion is a powerful force. When our work becomes a quest or a cause, nothing will deter us from our path of service.
An important realization came to me, as I watched my own life transform and some long held dreams materialize. We must know who we really are before we can step into our destiny. We must not hesitate to go into the mud and clean up the old sludge so we can find new ideas, sometimes a new paradigm, and the peace to create again. A Sowing the New Seeds session will help you get clearer on your priorities, your sense of Self, and it will empower you to act. We look at the traps that distract even the best of us from time to time; addiction, fear, daydreaming, false desires, loss of focus, and boredom. We ask questions that open new doors of possibility and lead you in the direction you are longing to go. We identify and gather your allies, the “suns” that nurture and strengthen you on your path to self realization. We work with your third, fourth, and sixth chakras through exercises that activate and free up the energy around you. We exercise your animus, the masculine force that assists you in acting on your own behalf in the world. We do ceremony.
I have experienced the incredible power of ritual and ceremony through my shamanic studies. Ritual is how we commune with the sacred. We use it to work with Spirit in the co creation of our destiny. Making a Despacho, is one way I have learned to embody my prayers and desires. A Despacho is a ceremonial offering to the earth. It is a thanksgiving, not a sales order.
There is a lot of greed on our planet today. Our destruction is evidence of massive soul loss. In our hearts, we know that we are all connected and interdependent. We know not to kill each other over Gods. We know how to coexist with the animals. We know how to nourish and care for our mother earth, but we are not listening to and connecting with that part of ourselves. We have forgotten who we are and that is how we are capable of such cruelty against the very forces that sustain us.
We are here to work alongside with Spirit as guardians to the earth. We are here to use our unique gifts in favor of our fellow travelers and our beautiful earth home. It is our commitment to our dreams and our truth that will change the destiny that our past actions has set as our course.
Sowing the New Seeds is about growing our strengths and our most precious ideas and releasing them into the universe for others to enjoy and be inspired.
