There is no Time Like the Present- 6

Written for Coven Life

  1. Flow-

Today we will be remembering the word that allows all energy to exist, as without this there is nothing, literally……….

I have been excited even thinking about writing what this word means to me at this time. To me the flow exists beyond time, in the dark and light of the universe, in different dimensions, in alternate universes, it is the ingredient that brings to life from the smallest of atoms to the largest of black holes.

Now some call this universal energy, cosmic flow, others call it God, Goddess, prana, some call it time, spirit, life and some name it the Big Bang. Call it whatever it is you want, it is the one thing that gives meaning and existence to all that is. The flow exists as the ‘rhythmic pulse’ one that creates the magick that we can see, feel and experience. It goes beyond this earth, into the universe and much further out. It then comes back into our being, it is in every aspect of our surroundings, it is in the stars, the moon, the sun and the planets, it is in every plant, animal, animate and inanimate object, it is in our very body occupying every single cell.

The Flow gives us power to bring to life whatever we need. It is present in our autonomic nervous system that regulates certain body processes from breathing to blood pressure and creates a pulse therefore creating life. The earth has Her own flow, it is in the ebbs and flows of her oceans, the tides, day and night, the seasons, the elements and so forth.

This little series of trigger or remembering words has been created during this time to assist myself and hopefully engage others in assisting themselves in going through this tough period. Life has not been easy for many, and the stress of all that is happening around us is impacting our body, mind and soul. So for today I’m just going to remind you to be present in the flow and remember to BREATH.

Breath-

Our breath is one, if not, the most import aspects of a human being. It not only generates our flow for actual life but it allows us to get into the flow of everything around us. Ever feel ‘out of rhythm ‘. It’s because your ‘not in the flow’.

In some schools of thought it is called the ‘Spiritual Cosmic Breath’. It is the very essence that begins our ‘earth walk’ from the first breath we take, and it is the very last breath we take that stops this existence here on this earth. When we surrender to the rhythm of the Great Cosmic Flow we release the need for ‘Control’ .

So for now just allow the flow through your breath and allow it to breath you. Verse yourself in breathing exercises that work for you. Engage in meditative practices that will allow you to get back into the flow. This is a reminder for you to BREATH. Learn to flow with your breath and understand that it is the very rhythm that everything and I mean everything that was created and will continue to be created. Flow from life to death and back to life again. Our breath here on earth is guided by respiration of every single cell in our body. We breathe the air here on earth, in and out, from the very first breath we take until the very last. However our origins of life was not here on earth but was given to us by the cosmic flow. It was the very rhythm that was created in the womb of our mother, the energy of our parents sacred union and finally the birth, all because of the miracle of the cosmic flow. On our last breath here on earth, our prana, our spirit whatever it is you like to call it, goes back into that cosmic flow, the ‘Spiritual Cosmic Breath’ that created us, this gets recycled into the cosmic energy pool to create more energy, more life and more flow. When you look at it this way, you can understand why the ancients thought that we are all related, connected, from the blade of grass, to the stars, to all the animals, plants, planets and so forth, as we are ALL from this one source.

Empedocles- 494-443B.C

TO the elements it came from

Everything will return.

Our bodies to earth,

Our blood to water,

Heat to fire,

Breath to air.

They were well born, they will be well entomb’d!

But mind?…

Affirmation:

I move with the energy of the ‘Cosmic Breath’ and allow the breath to breath me. ‘I am that I am’.

A perfectly rainy day

Study session by Dawn
Today is the most perfect day and the gods include days like today to give us time to relax, recoup, talk, tell stories, maintain and strengthen family bonds.
Yes it is raining but not hard, the ground is soaking up the moisture like a sponge to take care of all the vegetation coming to life as the god gets stronger every day. We need days like this so we will be able to produce everything we need to get through the cold winter that is 6 months away.
The temperature is very tolerable as long as you are wearing a sweat shirt or light jacket, so if you really need to you can get out side and work or walk or whatever else you need to do
But here is a suggestion, especially with the virus thing going on, get the family together and cook a meal, something warm and hearty, a soup/stew would be an excellent idea. have the kids help show them how to mix the ingredients, cut the vegetables, cut up the meat. Make them part of the process, help them learn what it means to fix a meal, set the table do the dishes.
Then when that’s done get out a card game or a puzzle something that everyone can enjoy and participate in, and instead of looking at this day as a rainy cool inconvenience look at this day as a chance to family. tell stories about the family so the children can learn about their ancestors, tell jokes laugh and have fun. Families dont have good fun together today as much as they had in the past. The kids are going to remember days like this a lot more than days in which you HAVE to go out and work in the rain or HAVE to go to the grocery or HAVE to ……
And later in the afternoon as everyone is winding down, take a nap, turn on an old movie and just relax. The gods knew that the people needed to rest from time to time, and made days like this so that we would have to rest and may I dare say it FAMILY.
I hope you all as my family have a most perfect day today
