Spring Medicine Kit

Spring is the time of powerful emergence, and emergence comes with one constant: Change. My sage mother, Grace Perkins, taught me the mantra, “Change is correct and desirable.” Now let’s be clear.  We may not already believe that’s true.  We work with a mantra because we need to commit to inviting a new idea into our lives.  Repeating that mantra is how we integrate the idea into our actions and ourselves.

Change comes with fear because all fear is the fear of death (see #34 of 50 things that help me heal post), and all death is the death of ego.  True transformation means we are no longer who we were.  ¡Deep Breath!  Again.  Another one.  “Change is correct and desirable.”  Remember?  Smiling….. can really help, as can tears, so whatever rises probably has potential for helping you through.

My teacher Tami Kent (the Wild Feminine one) says the antidote to fear is breath.  My mother says it’s joy.  I say it’s the full inhabitance of life, which happens through repeated inhale and exhale and creates joy.  My understanding affirms both Tami’s and my mother’s wisdom.

Today I am offering you a recorded meditation of an expanded visualization my teacher Anastasia Netri did with me.  I have done it with every single one of my clients and classes, and I think it’s definitely time to share it with you all.  I am giving you this meditation to help ease and address the fear part…  Leading to RELIEF, which may lead to breath…. and joy!

Meditation can be downloaded here.

I am also giving you the song “Peace Now” – because having a song as a balm can be very helpful with the fear voices, and this one serves me very well. I have two versions of it.  They are both still rough cuts of medicine songs, but I hope they will serve you.
*It was sung at my wedding by a hundred people as a blessing on Kim and me, and it was so beautiful.  :)*

Peace Now

Peace Now (Solo)

Lyrics:

Peace now peace
I find safety in trust now
Peace now peace
I find worthiness in existing now
Peace now peace
I find love in faith now
Peace now peace
I stand with all who stand with me now
Peace now peace
We honor all that came before now
Peace now peace
We choose freedom now
Peace now peace
Peace now peace
We choose peace now
Peace now peace
Peace now peace

Love,
Sophia
