Here is a daily practice for connecting your purpose with the web of life.
Begin by sending your energetic roots deep into the earth and ground yourself. Bring your awareness to your heart, take a few deep breaths through the center of your chest, and reach your arms toward divine light.
Now, ask spirit what work is being called through you today. This will be your true work, not mundane tasks or chores on your to do list, but something deeper and more meaningful. This will be work that energizes you, satisfies your spirit, lifts you and others up.
Now, with your voice, using drums, rattles, bowls, or other sound instruments, describe the work you are called to do. Speak, sing, let your body and the space around you be filled with the vibrations of the sound your create as you lift your voice to the heavens.
Let the sound of your voice rise up and join with the web of life. You are sending the frequency of your wishes and dreams, your unique offerings into the universe.
The frequencies you create rise up and join with the web of life, affecting the vast network of energetic filaments in unique patterns and ripples. As you do this practice, you are creating and inviting new possibilities, healing rifts in the fabric of life, focusing your mind body spirit and emotions on the work that only you can offer, creating new connections in the web of life.
As you send your hopes intentions and dreams into the web of life and receive guidance from spirit, you strengthen build and rebuild the network connecting all living beings.
Put your ear to the ground. What do you hear? In what language does our Earth speak to you?
Can you hear the hundreds of thousands of earthworms turning and fertilizing the soil, carrying out their singular and necessary purpose in the web of life?
Can you hear the billions of roots of grasses, trees, wild plants and “weeds” food plants and flowers of all descriptions, reaching deep, stretching down, absorbing water and nutrients?
Can you hear the fur bearing creatures in their dark and cool burrows, the snakes gliding almost silently along the Earth through the tall grass? Can you hear the nearby stream flowing quietly?
Can you hear the millions of ants creating their underground cities, marching in unison, intent on their building project, living their lives, feeding their families?
Can you hear the underground rivers, streams and aquifers, the water fresh and cool, lapping in dark rock shelters? Can you hear the slow dripping and dropping of lime infused water from ancient stalactites in secret caves so far beneath the surface of the Earth?
Can you hear the deep hum and vibrations of the bedrock, the foundation of ancient stones that supports our home?
Can you hear the humming, the sound of creation as your ear tunes into the subtler frequencies of the Earth’s spinning, her movement in space?
Can you hear the deep and awesome harmony of creation? All is one great symphony of sound and vibration.
The earth speaks to us in her language of stone, metal, water, fire, air, soil, seasons, night and day, and abundant life of all descriptions.
Underlying all on our Earth is the sound of creation, the great hum.
I celebrate your amazing voices, lifted together in song.
Singing red-winged blackbird
You create a powerful uplifting current of sound energy that envelopes and permeates all. It heals and clarifies and brings those who hear closer to the powerful knowing of the oneness of all things.
I, a magnificent cottonwood do not hear, but I feel the waves of sound, I sense their harmony or disharmony. I sense the presence of the highest energies rising on the tidal wave of your joined voices. I feel them in my roots, trunk and crown. All that is extraneous falls away before your joyful harmonious tones produced with love.
Sing from the deep heart of your being. Let your voice be heard! Let the vibration of love you express be transmitted to the web of all things to set it singing with joy.
