“I trust the unseen path. I allow it to unfold as life intended”
Hello wise friend,
It is true. Sometimes we hold our breath around a situation. Deplete it of life force energy. Literally suffocate the way forward with impatience, pushing or forcing. We then wonder why the situation has become rigid, sticky or getting worse.
We temporarily forget everything is energy. I certainly do. Often.
But there is always another way forward. You and I both know this!
So when I am met with a tricky situation or have planted a seed of potential, and don’t want to cling over enthusiastly to it, I do my best to step back. Give it space. Hold it ever so gently and lightly in the energetic cauldron of my palms.
I exhale breathing space through it. My body sighs a soul satisfying sigh! Once again, I release my grip, and trust in the bigger picture at play. This I know is the way forward.
I allow it to unfold as life intended.
I let the way forward be shown. I stay open to guidance and other glimpses of potential.
I trust the unseen path.

Cauldron of Potential:
Place the situation or seed of potential into the palms of your cupped hands.
This is your cauldron of potential.
Keep your hands and fingers soft.
Feel the pulsing energy in your cupped hands. You might sense this as heat or an aliveness. The more you hold your focus here the greater the energy will build.
Hold the cauldron of potential ( your cupped hands ), out in front of the solar plexus. Elbows by your side.
Inhale spaciousness into the situation that rests in the palm of your hands.
Sigh and exhale all heavy, cloudy, lower vibrations of energy.
Repeat until you feel there is a lighter more spacious field of energy around the situation.
You may like to cleanse your hands first with palo santo or juniper essential oil. Add your own mantra, prayer, gratitude or seeds of wind invocation. I’m sure you have some favourite rituals of your own.
I trust this helps. Let me know what you think.
My annual French Equinox Slow Rest retreat has just come to a close. We were smothered in kindness from mother nature, nourished with amazing food and encouraged to exhale deeply in the comfort and gentle stillness of our French country home in the southwest of France. I’m ever so grateful to the gorgeous woman who ventured far and wide to be there. Norway, Austria, Ireland, Australia. Dates for 2018 Equinox slow rest retreat are here and bookings are now open. The equinox is the perfect time for seasonal releasing and to shedding of your autumn leaves through the healing journey of authentic deep rest, ritual and remembering breath.
I’ve just finished writing up this weeks healing ritual. You are welcome to click here and read. It’s all about ways to strengthen the energy in your home.
Well, that would be it from me today.
May the medicine in you Rise my friend, one pause, one breath and one healing ritual at a time. xox Carole
