• Softening, yielding, listening. My week has been an exploration of what it feels like to be gentler with myself. I set the intention with this grid. White Tara, Rose Quartz, Crystal Quartz and rose petals all resting on the Flower of Life.
This theme has manifested in the colors I've been drawn to, the decks and stones I'm working with, the music I've been playing and the images my lens has chosen to take shape around.
For this Fire sign it has been an exercise in ebb and flow, in learning to allow a different aspect of my wholeness to emerge and have a voice.
Pink has been the overriding theme. It's a color I have an ambivalent relationship with. I love it...in theory. Inviting it fully into my life is another level of 'dancing with.'
And time spent cuddling with my little pup has opened my eyes to a different layer of softness. The animal body, with its deep teachings of instinct, present moment and joy, its hungers, its stillness and blurs of motion are always an opportunity for softening--as play, as yielding to a language and a love that is rooted in the realm of sinew, synapse, smell and silliness. That has been, perhaps my easiest inroad to softness.
Softening as an instinctive response is a new and heady possibility, and the place where softness meets edge is a meditation in and of itself. This is the prima materia, the loam and light of my slow and gradual awakening. It's different for each of us but perhaps only in degree. We are each others' unfolding body.
