Brightness and lightness are the spirit of today’s energy. The radiance of the Sun, the Moon, the stars, or whatever sets you aglow is your fuel for today. Take joy in who you are and your recent accomplishments, no matter how small. Not all struggles or achievements have to be groundbreaking or monumental. Taking the time to appreciate your own strengths and deeds is all part of a healthy balance of energy. Although you should take pride in accomplishments, hold them up lightly as an offering to the great Spirit rather than hoarding them like a miser’s gold.
Acceptance of yourself: of your desires, your fears, and your deeds creates a strong yet free-flowing energy that moves from your solar plexus chakra out into the world. Accepting that these things are aspects that define you, the small self, within the network of the Cosmos creates the space and freedom for your energy to change things for the good.
Sit firmly rooted to the Earth with your spine straight. Allow a gentle ease to find your muscles as you sway a little back-and-forth, side-to-side. When you’ve reached a place of stillness, take your hands to your chest, just below your ribcage. Work your hands in slow circles over this area and see the bright yellow disc of your solar plexus chakra whir with light energy. Feel this vibration emerge from your body, heading out into the Universe. Feel this spear of light mix with the energy of the Sun, strengthened as it forges your path. Yet don’t grip that path too tightly. Energy needs to be free to move and change. Throughout the day, use your breath to bring back the image of your light spear so you may blaze the trail ahead.
“I accept each and every part of myself as having a place within the whole, treating myself with brightness and lightness wherever life takes its toll.’
