The recipe has three ingredients: Gratitude, Prayer, Grounding. Within moments of opening my eyes, I give Gratitude for the blessings in my life. Then I Pray “Please let me see what I need to see, hear what I need to hear and feel what I need to feel” so that I will remain open to following the guidance of my intuition. I sandwich this with Grounding myself. I put my feet on the ground while reaching my arms to the sky while affirming “I am grounded in Mother Earth while being guided by God my father.”
Gratitude acknowledges my earthly existence. Prayer acknowledges that I don't have to go it alone. While Grounding myself marries the human and the spirit.
One of my recent experiences showed me just how powerful this soul sandwich is. Even though I am happier and feel freer than I have in years, I have been feeling energetically stuck. Specifically, having difficulty in expressing my creativity.
The weekend rolls around and even though I rarely do anything on a Friday night, I had a strong urge to reach out to my neighbors to make dinner plans. Since neither of us had our kids, we decided to treat ourselves to sushi in a part of town I rarely go.
On the way back to the car from dinner, we noticed a new hot yoga facility. Before my son was born, hot yoga was my jam. The studio I attended was a bit of a drive, and it just became unpractical. I was ecstatic to see we had a studio now, but even more so that I'd allowed my intuition to bring me here.
I purchased a week unlimited and literally felt like I’d come back home. Remember my pray to hear, see and feel the information I needed? Just like magic, I did! It was my second chakra that was blocked and all the “evidence” (characteristics of this chakra) around me supported what my intuition told me.
Hearing – in my meditation, I kept hearing water in the background of the spa music that played Seeing – in both my gyms (orangetheory and the new yoga studio) the décor was orange Feeling – doing yoga sparked such enthusiasm that I finally created YouTube videos I'd avoided
To top it off (and you can’t make this stuff up folks), shortly after I'd put together all these pieces together, a frog was jumping around in my house. Frogs are symbols of potential. Growing from a tadpole swimming around into a frog that hops around, frogs demonstrate the capacity for something so simple to evolve into something magnificent.
I had been blocking my creative energy by worrying about whether it was good enough. When my focus should simply be on being creative, trusting the universe will match my energy and bring me everything I need. What an incredible hug I'd received from the universe. What lesson could you benefit from serving up a Soul Sandwich?
