To complete your daily divination, use the divination tool you feel most drawn to for the challenge. You can use Tarot, Oracle Cards, Runes, your bones and/or curios, or any other method you feel drawn to. For this challenge, I’ll be using the Faerie Tarot by Nathalie Hertz
As part of my Creating Synthesis Project 2020, I am creating monthly divination challenges. In February, the focus was Relationships (if you missed that challenge, you can find it here). As we move into and towards Spring, here in the Northern Hemisphere, thoughts of gardens, growth, and seeds are on my mind and so the metaphor of Planting Seeds of Growth began.
You may notice a pattern as you move through the challenge. This challenge invites you to plan and prepare your spiritual garden by moving through the elements of Air (thoughts), Fire (actions), and Water (feelings) before moving into Earth where you identify the seeds you are ready to plant.
You certainly could jump right into planting your spiritual garden with whatever seeds of growth you like – but will this be sustainable? Will you TRULY experience transformation if you don’t take the time to plan your garden? Embarking on this journey allows you to identify the thoughts, actions, and feelings you need to address to not only PLANT your seeds but to sustain your growth.
As you move through each element, using daily divination you discover which energy would best serve each of your chakras to prepare your spiritual garden and eventually identify your seeds.
To answer this fully is the work of a lifetime – or more! The incredibly concise answer is that the word chakra translates from Sanskrit to English as “wheel”. They are part of our “subtle energy body”. Each chakra is like a 360° spinning wheel of energy with correspondences to certain aspects of your being. Each chakra – in English – is identified based on the location in the physical body. Depending on tradition and school of thought, the number of chakras can vary. For the purposes of this challenge, the focus is on the seven “main” chakras, or energy centers.
Each week, the focus begins with the first chakra – the Root – which concerns your safety. Next, you move to the second chakra – the Sacral – to discover what your creativity needs. Then, you visit your third chakra – the Solar Plexus – to look at your motivation. Onto your fourth chakra – the Heart – to uncover what needs healed. Moving upwards to your fifth chakra – the Throat – you find your voice and how to communicate. In the center of your forehead, lives the sixth chakra – the Third Eye – here, you look within to discover your vision. Finally, hovering slightly above the top of your head, you visit your seventh chakra – The Crown – to unlock your freedom.
By the end of the month, you’ll have worked through each of your chakras in conjunction with the four elements to plant YOUR seeds of growth!
