CHALLENGE YOUR MIND
THE FREQUENCIES OF THE FIRE STARTER
Over the course of three days you can dive into the three frequencies associated with the Fire Starter archetype.
This is the pathway of lightness. Connect to the Shadow, Gift and Siddhi and surrender as the wisdom unfolds. Use mindfulness to witness your patterns without judgement.
Follow a sequence of investigation where you allow the Fire Starter to enter your life. Access wisdom through inquiry, play with possibilities and potential, practice empathy, communicate with and listen through love.
Journal out your experience.
Be on the lookout for when this shows up for you. Maybe in your mind in desiring something for yourself; in your body when you desire to have good health and be rid of the pain, discomfort or disease; in your emotions when you desire to have an experience of joy or escape a feeling of sorrow; or in your relationships where you desire something different from your current experience with your partner OR desiring to be with another.
How does desire show up in your life? In what areas of you life can you really feel this deep longing? Is it hard to let it go? Do you find yourself constantly thinking about this desire? Do your desires run your life? Do you act on impulses when you feel the surge of desire well up? Do you find yourself flippantly searching for experience after experience to feed your insatiable desire? What is your hunger? Why are you hungry?
Imagine an image of a hand squishing play-dough. The tighter the hand grips, the more the play-dough squishes out of the middle of the fingers. Your desire is like the hand. What is it you are desiring is the play-dough. The tighter you grip onto what you desire, the more it deforms. When you can approach your life and desires with lightness it is free to be molded. When you are constantly gripping and obsessing over a desire you hand remains closed. In order to receive that which you are desiring you have to OPEN YOUR HAND. It is okay to have a desire, but hold on loosely to it. Let it transform and manifest for you.
What in your life do you find yourself GRASPING for? Can you imagine yourself gripping onto this idea/person/thing like play-dough? What would it take for you to open your hand? Can you have the self-discipline to open your hand. This is not about DENYING your desires. It is more about letting them live in your heart without impulsively acting or tightly grasping to them. How can the Gift of Lightness serve you?
Have you experienced true rapture before? Not joy or excitement from your desire being fulfilled. But burning in the fires of your desire and emerging from the ashes enraptured. Contemplate this Siddhi and stay open to the experience.
Affirmation: I willingly step into the fires of annihilation.
