Sacred fire within
The Symbolism of Fire
"Sacred fire within
Fuel my desires
Help me grow"
Fire is one of the five elements of nature and throughout various cultures, it is a prominent symbol of passion, joy, determination, and creativity. In most indigenous cultures, fire is sacred and an important practice for well-being. The next time you’re near a bonfire or even a small candle flame— notice the qualities of Fire.
How does it move? What colors do you see? What is powerful about it? What about it is transformative? There is so much we can learn from the medicine of Mother Earth. Observe how the element of Sacred Fire can fuel your desire to expand, grow, and transform.
Masculine and Feminine Energy
Burn off the veils of illusion
Help me see
Illuminate my wounds
Help me heal"
We are energetic beings that carry both masculine and feminine energies, regardless of the biological sex we were born with. Nature presents these divine energies as well and an example is the Sun (Masculine Energy) and the Moon (Feminine Energy).
The Sky Story from the Anishinabe of Central North America beautifully detailing one of the teachings of Grandfather Sun and Grandmother Moon,
“The first of all the mothers, Nokomis or Grandmother Moon, dwells in the heavens near her daughter, Mother Earth. From there, Nokomis keeps watch over her children, gently leading them through the night. Mother Earth nourishes and cares for all her children in the plant, animal, and human worlds. Just as life comes from Mother Earth, it returns to her, completing the circle of life. Each day, Grandfather Sun, the "one who brings morning", gives light and warmth to his children. Together, Mother Earth and Grandfather Sun provide the gift of life to all. The heartbeat of Mother Earth is echoed in the drumbeat of the Anishinabe. Even Wolf, who sings to the Moon, bids us not to forget our beginnings with Nokomis, our Grandmother.”
How can these two qualities or energies support your journey? Using your awareness, take note when something feels like masculine energy and when something feels like feminine energy.
Transform from Within
"You are the limitless expansive flame
Fire changes and transforms wood from the inside out. Similarly, transformation from within often takes external support to “combust” your healing.
