So to continue this work I went out into a place in nature near my home.
I called into the 4 directions and associated animals, snake, Jaguar, Hummingbird and Eagle and also to Earth Sky and Spirit.
This created a sacred space for me to work in.
Then I made a frame for my picture of the pattern I am releasing, using the sticks I found on my run (see previous post) Each stick seemed to also be connected to the directions so I went with this and lined each side up with each direction as a kind of holding force for the work.
I then cleared the area within the frame so it would only be placed objects there. As I did this there was a short hail shower – it felt like the weather was mirroring the cleansing process and that the hail was the release of the coldness and emotional stiffness my pattern created sometimes.
I placed my objects on one at a time and blew into each object an aspect of the pattern, how it manifests, or how I understood it deep inside myself. I also had an object for the unknown threads that this pattern weaved into my life that I wished to be released also, and an object representing the healing and seeds of new life that could come from the release of this pattern.
I places my healing stone in the area.
I then picked up several leaves that were to the side of the picture and included them into the picture and representative of the situations I saw this particular pattern exhibit itself.
Then I gave thanks to the area, intended the circle to remain open for the next few days and walked away – as I walked down the hill to my house I realIy needed to add something important to the picture already so I went back up and placed another object in the circle to represent this.
I am going to watch my dreams and my inspired thoughts on this subject for the next few days as well as return and meditate there to see whether there is anything that needs to change about the image, and to see whether nature has made any changes that indicate messages for me around this image.
