I have a restless relationship with this dark time of year. I love it, but I want more light and more time for doing things. I long to go deep into myself and rest in the quiet darkness. Make more time for integrating my experiences so far this year, I crave deep renewal. I want to turn off my brain, to settle into the present moment with a quiet mind. But the busyness of life propels me into thinking, planning, doing.
I’ve decided to set aside time to go deep within and restarted my morning meditation practice and I take a couple of short rests during the day. Now, I plan these into my day. It feels good to recharge my core energy and to express love for myself this way. I did not think I had the time to do so before.
Even if your life right now will not allow you to completely stop, you can still acknowledge this dark time of year by slowing down. Walk slower, be present with your movements and thoughts, orient to your heart as you go through your day. Remember that the energy with which you do a task is even more important than the task. Connect into your self-love, your center, your core before doing anything.
To support you in this process, I’m offering three individual Flower Essences – Blue Cohosh for being present and coming to a quiet mind, Kinnikinnik for snuggling into self-love, and White Fawn Lily for bringing quiet fullness into your daily activities. Blue Cohosh is in the Brain Blend to quiet your brain. Kinnikinnik is in the DuRen Blend for self-love underlying your core strength and stability. And White Fawn Lily is in the Beauty Way Blend to help you remember that you can instill beauty into all that you do. All of these are on special through November.
During the upcoming holiday season amidst all of the busyness, make time to be quiet and still with yourself. And know, yes, even in all of the hustle and bustle you can be centered in your heart and core energy.
Blue Cohosh Flower Essence
Use Blue Cohosh flower essence when you have difficulty being in the present moment, when your mind reacts to every thought, feeling, sensation or impression from your surroundings.
Blue Cohosh Flower Essence brings your mind and attention into the Now, the Present. This allows you to observe thoughts, feelings and sensations as they arise without reacting and attaching to them, and to let them gently drift through like puffy white clouds moving across the sky. This brings you to the quiet place of mind and opens your awareness to connect with higher spiritual energies. Blue Cohosh Essence is a welcome ally during meditation.
As Blue Cohosh flower essence says of itself:
I AM present in the Now with a quiet mind.
