Black-Eyed Susan’s Magical Specialties: cleansing and releasing, connecting with transitioned loved ones, grounding, integration, mediumship

The answer to your question involves becoming still for a moment and connecting with the ancient, nourishing energy of our loving and beloved Mother Earth. Feel your roots going deeply into the ground and drawing precious spiritual sustenance and serenity into your body and aura. Imagine the feel of the cool, dark, moist, nutrient-rich earth as though it surrounds and encompasses your entire body. Allow yourself to relax into the feeling of being cradled and caressed, and allow all worries and frenetic thinking to dissolve. Then come into an awareness of your human body. Feel your weight being lovingly held by the ground beneath you. If you are female, become aware of the still, sensual, earthy energy of your womb area. Through your womb space, feel your connection to the womb of the planet; notice that here, in this creative center, you possess access to all of the Earth Goddess’s wisdom, serenity, and love.

If you detect tension anywhere in your body, allow your slowly deepening breath to move into it and release it. Even if you feel tension or worry that doesn’t dissolve immediately, smile to it, say yes to it, and allow it to be as it is. Relax and trust that you are perfectly supported in all ways.
