This New Mexican ran 4 miles in the NYC 110-heat index heatwave. I guess you could say it was warm. Like mild chile. 🌶 🤣 💪🏼 NY heat’s just not quite like the Southwest.☀️🥵🏜🌅 And the sunset was surreal. But not quite like NM sunsets. 🙄🤷🏼♀️
Spirit Animal of the Week: Boar
July 22-28 2019
By Elizabeth Myers of wisdomseeker.net
This week Spirit Animal is a Protector spirit and is often featured on shields and family crests. It is the Boar. Boar is mostly a quiet animal and will spend its day foraging and eating most anything, including snakes. His tusks are handy in a fight, but when left alone the Boar pretty much prefers to stay peaceful, just like many good warriors.
This week, persistence is going to be a keyword. The spirit of the Boar is that of a peaceful warrior which means he does not quit when faced with opposition. He continues forward until his goal is met. You can look forward-facing some opposition this week. If you are like Boar you will continue forward in spite of the problems. If you are facing the Boar energy in a problem this week will be very difficult. You may consider going around the problem.
The Boar energy of handling opposition is going to be the most problematic. Are you facing that energy or using it? That is the question you will need to ask. The answer will be the key on how to solve problems and move forward this week.
We are leaning to the negative side of this powerful Spirit Animal, so it is very advisable to proceed with caution into any conflicts that arise.
Happiness is 💕 space to lay it all down and just be for a while.
I wrote tonight's session a week ago. It was focused on releasing the patterns of thought the ego holds onto-- distracting us from the present moment. Wouldn't you know it, I spent the whole week feeling victimized by my ego. And probably missing out on many moments of joy that were sitting right in front of me. "Why is this happening to me?" "Why is this person being this way to me?" "Why can't this just be my way?" This session turned out to be the one I needed personally.
My egoic mind came to a boil today when I was triggered by a conversation I had with a family member. I felt an old conditioned pattern bubble up which led me to have a little cry at work-- I needed the emotional release; but I also needed a reminder that I have the ability to process these sensations from a place of non-attachment. Tonight's affirmation in our meditation is where I felt the heaviness lift off my heart-- "I am not my thoughts, sensations, and experiences; I am the observer of all." .
Poof! A week of stored stress released.
Beyond grateful for this space and practice, to come together, and to return to our true nature of peaceful being 🙏😁 .
Looking forward to meeting up with you on these blankets, under these trees, on Sunday August 4th. 6:30pm in the park behind the Sonora Community Centre in Osoyoos 🌞
One of the greatest challenges in creating a joyful, peaceful and abundant life is taking responsibility for what you do, and how you do it.
When you choose to blame someone else, be angry with someone else, or point the finger at someone else, you are not taking responsibility for your life.
