09.05.22 - Wildflower Philosophy from Gennifer with a G
THIS WEEK’S QUOTE is “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” It's from Anais Nin, a French-born writer whose quote hung at my desk for 5 years before the day finally came where I found the courage to blossom.
You did not come here to play small. None of us came here to play small.
You undoubtedly have a longing you’ve been carrying around within you for a very long time. But for whatever reason, you’ve remained tight in a bud willing to feel the intensity of holding that beautiful gift inside instead of flourishing.
I get it, change can be scary and so can putting yourself out there. There’s the risk of rejection, ridicule or (gasp) actually succeeding!
Sometimes we have to play things safe as a recovery mechanism from some hard growing we just did. And that timeline cannot be determined by anyone but you.
It might take you a week to recover. It might take you 5 years to recover.
Then, just as the quote suggests, one day you realize that the pain to remain tight in a bud, from being so guarded guarded or from shrinking yourself is too much to carry on and you it’s time to muster up that “f*ck you” fierceness that I know with certainty is in that belly of yours.
THIS WEEK’S RITUAL: igniting your “f*ck you” fierceness.
It’s time to fire up your solar plexus or 3rd chakra which governs self-confidence, inspired by self-esteem, purpose and inherent power.
Here are some hints that your solar plexus chakra may be blocked:
Lack of self-trust
Unable to take responsibility
Attraction to stimulants
Not feeling good enough
But with a strong solar plexus you’ll experience:
The desire to win
And all I ask you to do to ignite your inner sun is to walk outside for at least 20-30 minutes of each day. Imagine a bright yellow ball of energy illuminating up your solar plexus area, growing larger with each inhale. I encourage you to create and listen to a “f*ck you” fierceness playlist that will quickly bring you to this place of power each and every time you listen to these specific songs.
If you’d like a jumpstart, this is my playlist on spotify that does just that.
You can add this reflection before or after your walk:How are you allowing your truth + authenticity to blossom? Are you watering it and giving it enough light or are you waiting until the leaves turn brown to do something about it?
Please know that whatever makes you uniquely you is a gift and it’s your duty to share this purest essence of you with the world. You did not come here to play small. Quite the opposite!
RECOMMENDATION OF THE WEEK: FULL MOON IN PISCES and Mercury in Retrograde. Surrender, and let the universe reveal its wisdom. If you live in or near Northern Westchester, I invite you to this fabulous Full Moon Release Sound Bath event on Saturday, September 10th at 8pm ET. Meditation, sound bath, reiki and more. It’s always (3rd) eye opening, transformative and healing.
If that doesn’t work for you this time, here is an article to help you think about how you’d like to maximize this time to cultivate your blooming blossom!
And if you like the idea of Full Moon Ceremony but make it virtual and a little artsy / kooky, I always enjoy the live youtube events from Chapel of the Sacred Mirrors in Hudson Valley, NY. You can watch them afterwards too. Sacramental Culture: CoSM September Full Moon
They even have a notify button option. This month is going to be your best month ever. Can you feel it? Xo Gennifer
