Our Morning Medicine: Day 11

Following up on last week’s post:Ganesh Mantra~Our Morning Medicine.

My 2 year old sun Cielo and I have been meeting each morning to sit with this Mantra. It has been a powerful way for us to bond and re-connect with ourselves after sleeptime. (I recently took private quarters in our home, so we are no longer co-sleeping! A huge step in our personal worlds.) I am finding, with deep gratitude, that co-creating ritual is a most stabilizing force with which we can gently guide ourselves through this transition.

I gravitated spontaneously to Ganesha after having many long conversations with Cielo about Elephants: “BIG” “STOMP” “TRUNK” “ELPHAN”… and after a pretty dramatic play session in which we “Elephant Danced” I felt prompted to look up a Mantra we might incorporate into our time together.

So far it has been very powerful… I had no idea that Ganesh is known as the Obstacle Breaker, or that this Diety is associated with the Root Chakra, which related to survival, physicality, and personal identity.  I have personally experienced deep moments of release as blockages are spontaneously liberated.

Yesterday morning was the first that we skipped our practice, and I ended up having some MAJOR insecurities/nervous energy/distorted self-talk while I was pushing through the finishing touches on my most recent Costume Commission:

I was creating a very powerful little hell for myself… my vibration was so chaotic that I even created a seemingly “unfixable” glitch in my sewing machine. Suddenly, and with no reason, the tension went bananas and I was forced to completely slow down and finish several details by hand! This was excruciating (I had a deadline to meet) but perfect Medicine as I slowly started to connect with my breath and let go of all the nervous mental chatter.

Today, as we met in practice again, I shared my gratitude with this Great Ally Ganesha… for I was able to transform deep shadow yesterday and re-connect with a more embodied sense of being.
