← CHAPTER OVERVIEW

Let’s take a break – and make this a practice

Dear Creatrix,

What excuses did you come up with?

Why is it difficult for YOU to allow yourself space and time to relax, meditate and be still?

Before we talk about this more and find out what we can do about it, I would like to finish off this week with a short break and a text I found that I think fits here quite well.

The way capitalism, colonialization and the ideologies of the west have raised us, we push, we pull, we move things quickly, and we have a hard time allowing for change and things to come to us when the time is right.

But times are changing, and this is wonderful news.

And it is also wonderful that there are still some people among us, who know how to live with the energies of the universe and who can become our greatest teachers now, as we shift into a time, that aligns us again with the natural rhythms and allows us to understand ourselves as a part of nature itself.

„My people are not threatened by silence. They are completely at home in it. They have lived for thousands of years with Nature’s quietness. My people today recognise and experience in this quietness the great Life-Giving Spirit, the Father of us all.

It is easy for me to experience God’s presence.

When I am out hunting, when I am in the bush, among the trees, on a hill or by a billabong; these are the times when I can simply be in God’s presence.

My people have been so aware of Nature. It is natural that we will feel close to the Creator. Our Aboriginal culture has taught us to be still and to wait. We do not try to hurry things up. We let them follow their natural course – like the seasons. We watch the moon in each of its phases. We wait for the rain to fill our rivers and water the thirsty earth…

When twilight comes, we prepare for the night. At dawn we rise with the sun.

We watch the bush foods and wait for them to ripen before we gather them. We wait for our young people as they grow, stage by stage, through their initiation ceremonies. When a relation dies, we wait a long time with the sorrow. We own our grief and allow it to heal slowly.

We wait for the right time for our ceremonies and our meetings.

The right people must be present. Everything must be done in the proper way. Careful preparations must be made. We don’t mind waiting, because we want things to be done with care.

We don’t like to hurry. There is nothing more important than what we are attending to. There is nothing more urgent that we must hurry away for.

We wait on God, too. His time is the right time. We wait for him to make his word clear to us. We don’t worry. We know that in time and in the spirit of dadirri (that deep listening and quiet stillness) his way will be clear.

We are river people. We cannot hurry the river. We have to move with its current and understand its ways.

We hope that the people of Australia will wait. Not so much waiting for us – to catch up – but waiting with us, as we find our pace in this world.

If you stay closely united, you are like a tree, standing in the middle of a bushfire sweeping through the timber. The leaves are scorched and the tough bark is scarred and burnt; but inside the tree the sap is still flowing, and under the ground the roots are still strong.

Like that tree, you have endured the flames, and you still have the power to be reborn.

Our culture is different. We are asking our fellow Australians to take time to know us; to be still and to listen to us.“

~ Miriam-Rose Ungunmerr-Baumann (Aboriginal activist, educator, artist and 2021 Senior Australian of the year)

So while this text comes from a quite specific context, what I think this text shows us more than anything, is respect.

To respect the changing times.<…

Practice: Your Daily Cards

Let’s pull some cards

To be honest, I was quite sceptical about Tarot and Oracle Cards – until I started pulling daily cards every morning and every evening and wrote them down for a while.

Purpose – Week 1 – Pt. 1

Purpose – Week 1 – Pt. 1

Welcome to a New Chapter in the CREATRIX School

Let’s begin to explore the purpose of life and our unique role in it.

In this lesson we will just start by looking at where we are at right now, find out what answers we are looking for and get a bit in the mood of this chapter so we can open up to exploring our mystical side, our purpose and our callings in the next four weeks.

Purpose – Week 1 – Pt. 2

Purpose – Week 1 – Pt. 2

Let’s find some clarity

We have a lot to explore this month, so we will use this lesson to find some clarity around the terms we will be using and start diving into the meaning and the purpose of our lives, as well as all the other terms.

And I share a bit about how I got here and how I discovered my callings and the purpose of life.

Purpose – Week 1 – Pt. 3

Purpose – Week 1 – Pt. 3

Why you are whole and perfect as you are

In the last lesson, we looked at the purpose of life and all the other terms we are going to fill with our own unique meaning in this chapter – and today, we will look at ourselves and how we can possibly give ourselves a new, more powerful meaning as well, by discovering that we are perfect already just as we are.

Do you agree? Do you think you’re perfect – yet?

Tools for Self-Recognition I: Astrology

In this lesson, we learn how to use our curiosity and our bliss, as well as our astrological birth chart to find out more about ourselves, our wishes, our personality traits, what drives and motivates us, what we like about ourselves, and what some of our challenges are – and then we see how we can begin to resolve them.

Purpose – Week 2 – Pt. 2

Tools for self-recognition II: Numerology

After finding out more about ourselves through Astrology, we focus once again on what else is possible for us, when we begin to look at what’s great about ourselves instead of what’s wrong with us ;).

It really makes such a huge difference.

And then we use numerology to recognize ourselves even more and to consider the possibility of inviting in a new (nick) name into our lives, to help strengthen the qualities we would like to cultivate more from now on.

Tools for self-recognition III: Wheel of Colours

Let’s dive a little deeper into getting to know ourselves.

This time we will use the Wheel of Colours to recognize more aspects of ourselves, and I’ll also show you how to use your Wheel of Colours to support you in the changes you’d like to create in your life.

Visualise yourself!

I bet that you already see yourself in many new ways and that you are getting more confident and proud of who you are already.

Today, we are going to add one more exercise to help us see our excellent qualities and superpowers and to find out how to best use them for the highest good of all.

Practice: Foot Massages

Practice: Foot Massages

The topic of this chapter is RELAX/ Family, right?

And maybe the relaxation fell a little bit short – so let’s counteract that with some foot massages.

Today is the day we will start to treat ourselves extra nicely, maybe create a new family tradition, and learn how to best massage our own and each other’s feet.
