Greeting The Day, Greeting The Night
This is a beautiful and very moving exercise that benefits you in many more ways than you might suspect just yet. Do the exercise for a week and you will begin to know just how much support and sustenance there is for us - simply by virtue of being here.
Greeting The Day, Greeting The Night1. Step outside as soon as you have risen and open yourself to the World. Take a moment to breathe deeply and then say, "Day, I greet you."
Allow this day - rainy or bright, cold or hot, no matter what - to come to you, to bring you it's totally unique properties (for not one day is ever quite the same as the day before, nor all the days to follow).
One more time, re-state the words, "Day, I greet you."
Remain with this for just a few moments, then thank the day for it's unique lessons on this occasion and step back inside and into your ordinary life.
Take a moment to look around, to get into rapport with the night and become a little more still and a little more observant, and then say, "Night, I greet you."
As before, check yourself for any physiological sensations or emotions which might denote an underlying energy blockage that stops a true exchange of energies between you and the night on this occasion.
Especially, look for any "stuck" energy that might have accumulated during the day in your dealings in The Hard and soften this, allowing the night to take away whatever is no longer needed, drawing all this up and into its endless self.
Allow this process to complete - it can be as swift as a thought, that is entirely up to you.
Give a sincere "Thank You" to the night for its assistance and its lessons and then return to your normal activities at this time.
You will notice that with even two or three repetitions, your ability to channel energy from the day and night increases dramatically as your systems and their pathways are becoming clearer and more efficient.
To begin with, you might strongly "take from the day" and "release to the night" but as time goes by you will find that indeed, for both the day and the night what is happening is a true circular exchange for you as each have their own unique lessons and energies to give, as well as assisting you in taking what is no longer needed.
It is a beautiful and very moving exercise that benefits you in many more ways than you might suspect just yet.
Do the exercise for a week and you will begin to know just how much support and sustenance there is for us - simply by virtue of being here.
