Day 22 of Meditate 22 days of self discovery.
As we close our journey together revisit your intention. How has your Sadhana evolved? For me I have become more presents with my thoughts allowing myself the grace to feel whatever emotion arises. I have started to ultilize my prana and my intuition. I feel less alone, I am comforted by my breath and the knowledge that with each inhale bring prana. This life-force energy comes from the universe and from you and me. With each breath we become more unified.
TODAY SUGGESTED RITUAL
MATERIALS
• Palo Santo or Sage
• A lighter/matches
• Candles
• An offering to spirit (flowers, crystals and note listing some changes over the last 22 days)
THE CEREMONY
1. Light some palo santo or sage to cleanse your space. Call on spirit to join you in ceremony through a vocal prayer. Ask for support in closing this cycle and in releasing any accumulated heavy energy from this past phase. Make your offering as you welcome spirit into your sacred space.
2. To decide how many candles you will need, take a moment to meditate on the individual challenges from this past cycle that you would like to release during this ceremony. You will need one candle for each challenge plus one extra.
3. Light all candles except for one and sit with the light surrounding you.
4. Each lit candle represents a challenge that you will be putting to rest at the end of this cycle. Assign each candle to a specified challenge.
5. Pick up one candle and allow yourself to feel the reality of this challenge. Feel it in your body, in your mind, and in your soul. How did it first come to be? How is it living within you now? What part of you needs healing in order to let it go? While holding the candle, use your intention to move this energy through your body, through your arms, through your hands, and right into the candle. Once you feel like you have moved the energy out of your body, blow out the candle.
6. Repeat this process until all candles are blown out.
7. Take the final candle that hasn’t been lit yet. Focus on the blessings of this last cycle. Feel them as deeply as you felt the challenges and move that energy through your hands and into the candle. Once you feel that the candle has been infused with your blessings, light this last candle with the intention of carrying these blessings forth into the next cycle. Sit with this candle in meditation for a few moments.
8. Close your sacred space, thank spirit for accompanying you in ceremony, and blow out the final candle.
Today’s Suggestions for RITUAL :
  • Crystal – Onyx works similarly to quartz, but instead of dispelling negative energy, it absorbs it. Onyx has the incredibly power to change this negative energy into lucky, fruitful energy that can turn bad situations into blessings. Use onyx to eliminate lingering ailments or negative thoughts and to make the most out of unhealthy situations.
  • Essential oil – Lime – The oil of zest for life – apply to back of neck and over heart
  • Soothing Touch – Gently place your hand over your heart, feeling the gentle pressure and warmth of your hand make small circles over your sternum and gently massage the intercostals.
with so much love,
lil’Kim

JOURNAL PROMPTS
Set aside 5-10 minutes to journal.
  • Take some time to journal for you. Whatever comes to mind.
MUSIC
PRANAYAMA { BREATHWORK }
AGNI SAUR DHAUTI (fire wash)
Agni saur strengthens agni (digestive fire) and the digestive organs, centers energy in the body, removes excess phlegm, purifies samana vayu (seated in the region of the navel) and balances pitta dosha. It is heating and should not be practiced by people with high blood pressure, hernias or ulcers, until these conditions have ceased.
Place the palms face down on the knees or on the floor right in front of the knees with the fingers turned slightly inward. Inhale evenly, fully and deeply. Fold the body forward to empty out the lungs fully.
When you have completely exhaled and emptied the lungs as much as possible, hold the breath out as you round your back evenly, placing your chin to your chest. Your arms should straighten enough so your head ends up higher than the height of your hips. Continue to hold the breath out and draw your belly and diaphragm back toward your spine as much as possible comfortably. Move the abdomen in and out at a moderate pace as many times as you can comfortably while holding the breath out. You are not breathing during this process. Stop moving the belly just before you think you need to inhale, relax the muscles and fold forward as close as you can to the floor. Stay there as you inhale, then exhale slowly as you bring your spine back into an upright position. This is one round. Practice three rounds.
Note: Breath retentions should never create tension or anxiety, increase in heart rate or the need to quickly suck in air. Stop two steps before you cross that line and eventually the line will begin to move and your capacity will expand. ​
