Can you locate your inner fire? When you are able to quiet your mind and bring awareness to your body and subtle energy, pay attention to your spirit, where the elements of passion and light and life intersect to fuel your existence at this time and in this place.
Is your fire burning strong and steady and bright? Does it need an infusion of fuel, is it dimming and cooling? Your fuel is that which gives you purpose. Your fuel sparks your creativity and ignites your passion for life.
Pay attention to your body – when you feel a dimming or a sense of hollowness or emptiness, you are growing cooler – when you feel a brightening, an energizing effect, a renewed focus, you are getting warmer. Ask for more of that, do more of whatever it is that engages your being.
Living with a great creative fire and passion within you will raise your vibrations, will improve your outlook, make life flow more easily, light the way forward.
Don’t compare your inner life with others. Go inward and get to know yourself, know what makes you want to get up in the morning and live. Do what brings you life, what feeds your spirit even if others scoff or scold.
(Your wise inner self will never ask you harm, disrespect, or diminish yourself or others in any way. Find a therapist trusted friend or healer if you are having these thoughts).
If you are temporarily blocked from your life’s work during this shutdown, plan, dream, sketch and write out ideas, draw in inspiration from all around you. Let spirit guide you.
Let your work change, evolve, and grow stronger adapting to the new realities of our world in this moment of crisis. Find new ways to fuel your inner fire if the old ways are no longer viable.
