Which Element Do You Want To Embody? Earth, Air, Fire, or Water?

Happy Friday! I have a special reading for you today.

Who do you want to be?

What characteristics do you want to embody?

How do you want to feel?

What do you want your life to look like?

What do you want to share with the world?

I chose the main female cards from the Medicine Woman Tarot deck to help you get more intentional about the person you want to be.

The person you are.

Scroll down to pick your card and then share which one you were drawn to in the comments!

Pick Your Medicine Woman Card

You have two ways of choosing:

1. You can close your eyes, breathe deeply, and ask “What energy do I want to embody right now?” and then choose the card above you are most drawn to.

2. You can read the descriptions below, look at the photos (more closeup photos are further down), and choose the one you feel most like embodying right now.

There is no right or wrong and we all embody all of these energies on some level. It is just usually one stands out as more “you” than others.

You might also be drawn to one that is kind of the opposite of you because that is what you need right now.

Have fun and enjoy!

Full Moon Rituals

Connect with & Embody Earth Energy

Find a place to connect to the earth under the moon tonight.

If you can sit on the ground and feel the earth, that would be ideal. If not, use some symbols of earth energy around you such as fruits or vegetables, a houseplant, flower, etc.

If you have one, hold a stone that is red, brown, black or green (any stone is actually fine since they are from the earth).

Or imagine that one of those stones is at the center of the earth and you are connected to it through your energetic roots.

Get comfortable and begin to take some deep breaths.

Say silently or aloud:

I am an Exemplar of Stones. I am connected to the North, Winter, and Night. The earth supports me and I am grateful.

I follow the cycles of nature and teach others how to find abundance through natures principles. I am grounded, content and financially stable.ย 

Notice how saying this makes you feel. Repeat daily if you like.

Seek out ways to continue to connect with earth energy.

***If all of these things were true about you, how would you behave? Start living like that and watch your beautiful life unfold.

Connect with & Embody Air Energy

Find a place where you might feel a breeze under the moon tonight.

Play some music. If you are an artist of any kind, create under the moon.

If you have one, hold a stone that is blue or possibly fluorite, turquoise, angel aura, or citrine.

Or imagine a feather moving around your body and clearing out old and stagnant energy.

Get comfortable and begin to take some deep breaths.

Say silently or aloud:

I am an Exemplar of the Pipes. I am connected to the East, Spring, the Dawn. The air fills me up and I am grateful.

Are you holding back your gifts from the world?

For many years, I let things like thinking I am not pretty enough orย my weight or bad choices I had made hold me back in life. I have learned that that type of behavior helps no one. It didn’t make me feel good about myself and it kept me from sharing my gifts with others. Have you done the same? If yes, today I am inviting you to take the next step.

Is there a gift you have that you are holding back? Please share it with me!

Either comment below or email me at hello@kerryburki.com.

Want to go bigger? Is there something you can do in the next week to start to bring your gift into the world? Let me know that too!

I mention some free guided meditations in the video and you can check those out here:ย http://www.kerryburki.com/meditations/

 

Be Present For Yourself

beheartHappy Friday! My birthday was this month and every year for the last 8 years or so I read a beautiful passage for April 6th from the book Journey to the Heart by Melody Beattie. ItHappy Friday! My birthday was this month and every year for the last 8 years or so I read a strikes a cord deep within me every time I read it and I feel like sharing it this year. I often read this on different days throughout the year and also share it in yoga classes.

The journey I have been on in the last year has really helped me dig deep and I feel like I am finally living this passage fully. I still have lots to learn but I truly love myself like I never I have before. That is a feeling I hope you feel or are working towards feeling too.

So much of my work is about slowing down for yourself and tuning in.

That is where the real magic is.

Be Present For Yourself

Learn to be present for yourself, fully present in a way that’s new and delightful. Be present for your thoughts and emotions. Be present for the gentle way in which your heart and body lead you on. Learn to be fully present for each step of your growth, each step of your journey.

Value yourself, who you are, what you think and feel, and how you grow. For many years you neglected yourself. It was as though you were unconscious of who your were, how you felt, what you believed. You believed that kept you safe, protected you from feelings you didn’t want to feel. You believed it was how you should live. No w you re learning another way. Survival is no longer enough. It does not meet the needs of your heart and your soul. Now you want to live fully and joyfully. To do that, you must be present for yourself.

Be fully present for others, too. Be present for their spirits, their emotions, the words they have to say to you, but especially be present for their hearts. You no longer have to fear losing or neglecting yourself if you are present for others. You can do this safely now. You will not be consumed by their need; you will not become trapped in the workings of their lives. And if your present for yourself, you’ll know how much presence to give others.

Be present for life-for the starlit skies and the chirping birds that sing in the morning sun. Be present for the earth and grass under your feet, for the feel of a snowflake in your hand, Be present for all the magic and mysteries of the universe.

But most of all, be present for yourself. Then your presence for others and life will naturally flow.

Take a deep breath and go be present for yourself. Share any moments on social media using the hashtag #bepresentforyourself and I’ll be sure to check it out.

If this really really resonated with you and you desire a guide on your journey please consider working with me one-on-one. I have a limited number spots open in May.
