I have a vortex in the middle of my living room.
It began its activation in 2007 when I had a monthly Healing Circle in that room and continued in 2008 when I met a woman who channeled the Ascended Masters. The Healing Circle was replaced, so to speak, with opening my home to her and the Masters. That’s when it really kicked up. You can imagine the magic that was made!
Now, and since 2008, about twice each year I am guided to recharge the space. It’s usually around a full moon. I don’t plan it; it’s not on a schedule or anything. I just listen and then build a grid which, over time, takes on its own life. I’ve only had a handful of people acknowledge the energy of this vortex (during noncharging times). One friend said, pointing to the center of my living room, you have a vortex in the middle of your room. You know that, right? I giggled and said Yes, I do....
Just before the last full moon in May 2012 I was guided to create another grid. I did not know at the time it would become a “typical” recharging grid. I was charging a package of love and kisses to be sent to someone and wanted it, well, charged of all the good mojo and love and good wishes. After the package was sent, the grid still wanted life... It started small and over time grew into this amazing diamond shaped grid. I’d recently splurged and purchased a new deck of cards, the GratitudeTarot created by Teresa Deak. The grid was surrounded in various facets of Gratitude. I found the whole process fascinating, how with each tweak, or iteration, it became more elongated and clearly the shape of a diamond.
Then, last night, my cat Ginger started rubbing into the Gratitude Tarot deck, she had the little booklet between her paws! She was hanging out with the Gratitude and holding space there in the vortex. She is my Energy Warrior extraordinaire!
I feel the recharge is almost complete. I absolutely love how the Gratitude piece played such an important role in this particular grid. Iʼve come to really intentionally and consciously embrace Gratitude. Itʼs kept me grounded and in my body. How do you stay in and play with Gratitude?
I invite you to join me each second Tuesday of the month (thatʼs tomorrow!) on my FacebookPage where I host a Day of Gratitude. It is a whole day set aside to intentionally focus upon Gratitude and state what you are grateful for. Come on over and share a poem, photo, story, video, quote, anything around Gratitude. I am grateful for so much, and I thank you for Being.
