February Exercise - Heart Chalice Meditation

HEART CHALICE MEDITATION (basic version)
(as given to me by Wilow Zachubi, Reclaiming Priestess Extraordinaire!)

Ground and center. Fill your chalice with water and hold or place it in front of you. Give attention to your heart, noticing how you are feeling emotionally right now, allowing that to be, with ease... No need to change or judge. Simply feeling. Allow yourself to give attention to the qualities of giving and receiving in your life, how do you experience the balance of giving and receiving right now...

Begin to imagine your living heart as a chalice... If you are new to this, or haven't practiced in a while, spend some time observing your heart chalice, noticing details like size, color, shape, composition, texture, and state of maintenance...

When you are ready, ask Goddess to pour Her love into your heart chalice like cool clear water to quench your thirst. Know that this is your birth-gift, that there is a constant stream of love flowing, and that your willingness to receive Her offering is your greatest gift to Her... Take in this water, this love, for your own healing and nurturance, knowing that your ability to give to others is deeply connected to your ability to receive... Let your chalice become full and allow yourself to receive more than you think you can, until your chalice begins to overflow... Imagine this water, this gift of love, blessing and flowing in an ever evolving pattern through your life... Blessing and offering itself to people, situations, and other beings that you know and love... Ones you have difficulty with... Even to ones you are unaware of...

If at any time this expansion begins to feel effortful or draining, allow yourself to return to simply receiving for your own healing and nurturance, remembering that Her gift of love is constantly poured out upon us all... Your willingness to receive is your best offering to her... Your ability to give to others is intimately related to your ability to receive...

Hold your physical chalice in your hands, and allow the love streaming into your heart chalice to flow into the water you are holding, charging and filling it up... When you are ready... Drink for your connection to Goddess... Drink for your own healing and sustenance... Drink for your ability to give and receive with others...

Share this water with some other being at some time during the day. Make sure that you give thanks and are grounded and present in your body before going on to other activities.
