How to Reignite The Invisible Spark Within
by Mandee Elam
(Co-Founder and GIC, Sea Goddess Healing Arts/Intuitive Ascension Guide)
What is the invisible spark within? Does it give you a tingle? Or a warm and fuzzy sensation when you think about what it could be? I believe that the spark within is really light. Our personal light, the flicker of our soul. Our soul is the weightless light-filled spark in us. It helps us to create the essence of who we are in our body. Even on our worst days, during our lowest points, there's still something deep within us that keeps us going. Maybe your spark is a flicker, a smoldering coal, a roaring fire, crackling ashes, or a soft warm candle. The light of our soul shines and varies its brightness in accordance to how we are feeling.
Many of us lose our worth after making a mistake, being judged, or feeling hurt by words. Our self worth and the way we feel about ourselves, seem to be a direct correlation to the spark that lives within us. The spark that is burning deep within your soul is there to remind you that you are enough. Even if you are bruised, beaten, shattered, alone, and broken, you are enough. That tiny tiny light in you still burning is enough. The challenge is to call back your power and help yourself to remember your light. How you tend to your spark will vary throughout your life. Sometimes you'll need to put out your own fire and sometimes you need to reignite it. Here are a few ways to tune in to your spark and see what feels like the next best step for you.
Show up for some soul inquiry. Soul inquiry is sitting in meditation, journaling, talking to a close confidant, a therapy session, or anything that helps you truly process and really tune into what's going on inside of you. It's looking under the Band-Aids and seeing what's causing the wound. Sometimes we're super aware of this and all we need are some tools and tips to start mending. Sometimes we need to go a little deeper and allow ourselves to discover why the wound is there or exists. If your spark is dim and in need of attention, odds are there's a wounding or energy leak that needs tending to.
Make a list or take an inventory of what lights you up. Things that light you up are things that inspire you, bring you joy, a peaceful feeling of contentment, or something that feels nourishing to your soul. Sometimes it's lighting a candle, listening to music, spending time with loved ones, being creative, or getting outside. The possibilities are endless, it's your soul. On the days that it's hard to remember what might light you up, just start with something simple that used to bring you joy. Perhaps buy yourself some flowers or make a special dinner. Once you have a grasp on a few things that light you up, try to do one each day and notice the effects that it has on you.
Move your body. Sometimes it's hard to move our bodies because we are in pain, exhausted, have an illness, injury, autoimmune disease, depression, or more. Even if it's just a little, moving our bodies helps us to move and flush our energy. Which helps us to stoke our inner fire. If you're bed bound, maybe just listening to music and making circles with your wrists will help. If you have a back injury, maybe try doing some supported yoga or physical therapy that are safe for your injury. Perhaps try cleaning and rearranging your living space, car, or work environment. Cooking, dancing, walking, hiking, playing with a pet or kid. Just move. I promise it will move something in you.
Spend time in the light. Allow yourself to bask in sunlight and moonlight, outdoors or through a window. Invite yourself to enjoy the lighting in your space. See if the type of light bulbs you use soothe you. Notice if candles or a fire inspire you. When we face our palms up into the sunlight, we allow the sun to nourish and charge our heart chakras. Our palms are an extension of our heart chakras.
Always honor and nourish the spark within. Have grace with yourself. If you forget it's okay. Your spark is your soul and your soul always finds divine ways to remind you of who you are and what you deserve.
Looking UP in Awe and Wonder
The Wild Energy of Aries and The Divine Spark
by Ursula Duffy
(Co-Founder and GOO, Sea Goddess Healing Arts, Professional Astrologer and Certified Aromatherapist/Founder, Ursa Alchemy)
Can you feel it? The quickening, the energy of life rustling and ready to burst from a long slumber. Late February to the Spring Equinox is when we become very familiar with the energy of one of the more dramatic season changes. The Spring Equinox represents many things. It’s the official beginning of the Spring season, it’s one of the two times of the year during which the hours of day and night are equal, it’s just after the renewal of Daylight Savings Time, life begins to bloom once again and it’s another turning of the wheel and the cycles by which we live. Astrologically, it’s the beginning of Aries season, which is considered Astrological New Year. It marks the end of the Sun’s journey through the sign of Pisces, the end of the zodiac, the culmination of all the degrees of all the signs; a threshold of shifting from a time of transcendence to being reborn. Autumn and Winter hold the space for rebirth in the darkness, in the unseen realms, where the seeds of life are protected, nourished and incubate. The Divine, Invisible Spark holds steady. Aries energy is the raw, untamed, wild and unruly energy of survival and pure life force. It’s wildfire, it’s primal, it’s Mars unleashed, it’s the Divine, Invisible Spark within us all. Think about what’s happening in the Earth beneath our feet. How the sprout spiral unfurls into a seedling that bursts through the ground to reach the sunlight needed for survival. Imagine the drive and the will to live. Imagine how much energy it takes to be born in darkness to reach the light. This is the energy of the Spring Equinox and Aries season. A great shift from our cosmic soup (Pisces) to a new life (Aries).
Most of the planets are also in a rebirth phase: Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune. They all recently met up with the Sun and had their own incubation periods, now almost all visible (except Neptune) in the early morning sky before sunrise. All the energy is ripe with raw life force. Wield the energy wisely though. The Warrior Spirit within us can sometimes just be looking for a fight. Rise above and direct your life force into something positive and that serves your highest good. Remember your Divinity.
The Aries New Moon is on Friday, April 1st at 2:24 am (EDT) ~ No Fools!
This New Moon will present a challenge and opportunity for deep healing and setting intentions for being our truest, best selves, choosing to move forward in the world with our sights set on our individual and collective Divine Mission.
