This workshop was designed so that you can learn how to prepare and set the groundwork for yourself to walk through a challenging time. And for a lot of us the holidays are difficult for one reason or another. But, the holiday season is also full of a lot of magic that doesn’t get utilized because we are all so busy and stressed. If you are here, then this year you are ahead of the game. This year is going to be different for you. You don’t want to wait until you are overwhelmed. Start now so that you can tap into the magic and feel the ground beneath your feet as you walk through all the craziness.
The holidays can bring up a lot of emotion, for many many reasons. Some of it comes from stress. We all know that when we are stressed we tend to have an easier breaking point. And some of you might have difficult family situations, or don’t do well traveling. All of this might still be there - your family might still be difficult, you might still have to travel, but if you stay engaged with yourself and grounded you can face these things from more of the truth of who you are. That’s the place you will land as we peel back layer after layer each week.
During this season you will use meditations that will help relax certain aspects of the body, and help you build towards a certain energy (it’s a surprise). It is totally up to you if you want to do this meditation one time, multiple times as needed, or every day. These meditations are designed to be done in a certain order, but feel free to return to previous recordings that resonated with you. How many times you use them in a week is really up to you. I am giving you the tools, but you must choose to use them to the degree in which you feel you need them.
Take some time today to listen to the intro recording. If you have never done the breathwork before listen to the part on how to do the breathwork. In there you will also find information on how to set up your space so you will be all set to go! Each meditation will be on average around 20 min, so plan on giving yourself around 20-30 min to meditate.
I will also be mentioning some minerals that I will be using that will help with that weeks meditation. If you have them, you can hold them during the breathwork meditation, if not that is totally fine. You don’t need them. Just me using them and talking about them will activate the energies in you. Here is a list of the main ones I will be using - should you wish to purchase any of them in advance and use them during that week. You don’t need to get any or all of these, but if you are interested in working with minerals in a deeper way and want something specific read the list and if one pops out at you seek out that one in particular. You don't need to know what they do, just trust what you feel in your body as you read the name of each one. If you feel a pull towards one, trust it.
Quartz with epidote
If you only get one I recommend hematite as it is very grounding and that is the most important thing in all types of energetic work. You can work with any mineral you already own, but this list is very specific to the energies we will be working with and they are all very soothing and calming minerals. If you plan to use something you have just make sure it isn’t very energetically activating, like pyrite, moldavite, or any orange or red mineral. If you have questions about this you can leave them in the comment section.
I want to strongly encourage you to use the comment section. Please check in, let us know how you are doing and ask questions. And don’t be afraid to respond to other peoples sharing and questions. This is one of the most powerful aspects of this on-line format. Sharing is caring. Sharing is powerful. It is what will help weave the energy of this community together and hold space for the group as a whole. We have people from all over the world doing this together. Share your wisdom with each other. And read each others insights and questions, it might answer some of your own and help you see that others are having similar experiences. You are not in this alone, so make yourself known. Looking forward to hearing from you and hearing about what you discover.
