homework - week 3.
What is the most profound thing you grieve for? That thing is usually intrinsically tied to the thing you treasure the most. How do you honor that thing? Create a sacred "container" that will empower you to safely express your reverence fully and deeply. This container may be a "nation-sack", an altar, a mandala or a stage surrounded by candles. Be creative. Be elaborate to give your subconscious even more permission to unfold into the truth of your expression. Consider setting a timer or flipping an hourglass to reinforce your container "walls" using a set time-frame.
Explore how ritual structures serve your ability to feel your reverence and grief more deeply. Explore adding vocalizations to your grief practice to honor your heart's song. Find a seed, any viable seed. Include this seed in your container and charge it up with your sorrows, your reverence, your love, as you feel everything that needs to be felt in your sacred container.
Draw on the power of the solar eclipse to plant seeds. What we grieve transforms. What will be birthed from your loss?
Plant your ritual seed anytime before the next full moon.
Journal Prompt: Over the course of this week, give yourself a set time to construct your reverent grief ritual. Notice how allowing yourself to feel into this space strengthens your integrity and fortifies reverence for your heart. Write about the impact and experience daily.
