Coming home is a loaded term. There are several places on the planet that our spirits will feel are ‘home’. The home of our childhood, the home of our adolescence, the home where we discovered our adult yearnings to be more, or other, that we had allowed ourselves to be. The homes that people create and share with us when they give us a hug, or the landscape that speaks most to our sense of wellness.
I often smile at the places on the globe I have visited, where I have not spoken the same language or worn the same cultural dress, but have felt utterly, completely ‘at home.’ The past lives I have spent there, the memories of these places and different bodies I have inhabited through time or space, all blend together in a beautiful tapestry of color and ‘belonging’. Landscape and wellness are two powerful intertwined ingredients in balanced spiritual wellness. T
o be drawn to a particular landscape, though it perhaps has never been experienced, or to be ready to leave one that has been familiar, a ‘home,’ requires the impetus for courageous exploration and change. Sometimes this change means letting go of the emotional, physical or spiritual ‘baggage’ that is associated with the ‘place’.
I have recently donated, burned, recycled and cleared out the rather large storage unit I kept in the ‘home’ of my adolescence. As I was dropping off the ‘re-use it’ load I encountered a woman who immediately seized one of the objects and hugged it to her chest. She looked at me and said, “How could anyone part with something so beautiful?”
I looked at her with bemusement, I did not consider the object particularly beautiful. The expression on her face, as I assured her I was very happy she take it, was more beautiful and gratifying than any experience I had had with the small sculpture in all the years it sat on a back shelf.
I started to feel a warmth spreading from my heart chakra, out to each of my fingertips as I donated other items I hadn’t seen or used in ten years. With each item I made this simple prayer:
“Dear God/dess, please let these items bring others joy, comfort, and abundance. Please send Archangel Michael to cut all chords of energy I have linking myself to them, so that there is greater space for the new owners to bring them home. Thank you.”
With the things that I chose to burn I placed tobacco on the ground with this prayer:
“Dear God/dess, Earth spirits, angels and ascended masters, please send the energy of love that others shared with me in these items back to them at this time, let them know that I honor them in my life and the gifts that they shared with me. Please send the healing and transformational energy of Archangel Raphael to release the sorrows that I carried to be transformed for my own growth. Please send Archangel Jophiel to remind me to experience the joys that each of these items and memories afforded, and aid me in remembering that the greatest beauty is derived from self love, and sharing love with this planet. Thank You.”
After relocating and removing all of the items, I began to feel an incredible ‘lightness’. My body ‘felt’ lighter, and my heart chakra opened further. The sacred medicine wheel of our self, the elements of our being that are body, spirit, mind and heart, all wish to be in alignment. They wish to receive equal attention for wellness, transformation, growth and healing. To honor one element is to allow that the other elements continue in a kind of chain reaction towards equal honor. I have created space not only in my physical life, but also healed and transformed stagnant energy on the spiritual and emotional plane. Through this ‘lightening’ my mind is also more peaceful.
We have gifts that we hold onto on the physical plane, that we can share with others. Some of them might be what another person needs at this time, to experience a sense of ‘home coming’, or familiar recognition for a journey they are taking. The ripple effect of having less baggage on any level, is a more energized self, and planet.
Wishing you renewed vitality as you sort through what you are ready to release and transform. To honor the past, to let go of some of it’s weight, may you bring greater energy, enthusiasm and space for your own beautiful, expansive future.
