‘Calling our spirit home’ is a practice my mother encouraged during different seasons, after journeys both internal and external, or after any injury had occurred. The body and the spirit exist like layers of light from a rainbow, spiraling within, surrounding, and the light energy extending beyond, the physical. Occasionally, such as during a viivd dream, or a fearful experience, or even as we change locations on the globe, parts of our spirit remain separated beyond our body. During an experience such as falling and slipping on ice, there can be a disjointed tilt to our bodies where the muscles and spine feel bruised, and the mind dazed. The spirit, like a blanket of light can ‘slip’ too, so to speak and wish to realign for the greatest healing with the being on all levels.
A simple exercise is to have someone you trust gently place their hands on your feet, and repeat your full name aloud three times. This can be a dear friend, a partner whom you share a kind and loving relationship presently with, or a light worker such as an energy healer, angel therapist practitioner, massage therapist, or reiki practitioner.
If you do not have a person near or with you, but have recently experienced trauma on one of the levels, such as emotionally, or if you are traveling across and around the globe and have been feeling ‘spacey’ lately, then take off your socks, place your feet on the ground and imagine that healthy roots like the roots of your favorite kind of plant, are stretching from your feet down into the fertile spring earth. At this time, when the visualization is clear, say your full name aloud three times.
Sometimes, through the transition of seasons, the leaving behind of the cocoon of winter for the rebirth of spring, I can feel most poignantly the need for a re-centering and grounding of my spirit into my physical being. Whenever I have practiced this simple exercise, I can feel the pieces of my wandering spirit returning to me. It has been grounding and centering after a move to a new home, a trip away for the weekend or winter, a painful breakup, or any physical injuries.
Today, and through each of the transitions, challenges, and rebirths of your being, I wish you angelic and earth spirit assistance, a connection with the Divine, and the full spectrum of your radiant self, to be present, grounded and whole
Aho, Om and Amen.
