Frog Medicine

Frog keeps appearing in my hypnotherapy sessions with classmates and clients. A few months ago Frog came in during Sacred Healing Space, that part of session where healing work is done. He was sitting on a lotus flower at the top of my head. A stem extended to my feet and the muddy earth. My goal for this session was more “grounding” and less floating away.

In the book, Medicine Cards, by Jamie Sams & David Carson, “Frog medicine is akin to water energy, and the East on the medicine wheel. Frog teaches us to honor our tears, for they cleanse the soul. All water rites belong to Frog, including all initiations by water.”

Other excerpts from the book:

“The key thought is to find a way to rid yourself of distractions and to replace the mud with clear energy. Then replenish your parched spirit, body, and mind.”

“A Frog medicine person can clean negativity from any environment.”

“Frog speaks of new life and harmony through its rain song.”

“Call to Frog and find peace in the joy of taking time to give to yourself. A part of this giving is cleansing yourself of any person, place, or thing that does not contribute to your new state of serenity and replenishment.”

Hypnotherapy reminds me of shamanic journeying — mystical and magical–brought to you by the subconscious mind and what I know as The Sacred Feminine.

Pink Bubble Breathing

I have a new relationship! It’s a pink bubble that surrounds me. I met it last week in class during a personal regression session. It continues to be with me and is magical — keeping me afloat and balanced much like a gyroscope.

Yesterday I snapped at the man I care take and felt bad (heavy and flat) about it. The unpleasant feeling kept nagging at me. I had crossed my own inner “red line.” I apologized to him and felt better. This is what “consciousness” looks like! If I was unconscious I would not be aware of my feelings, thoughts and actions and would be reacting all day long. Higher consciousness is when Love guides us and we respond to that subtle tone rather than our noisy ego with its short nerves/fuses. My goal is to be in higher consciousness, before my nerves take me somewhere I don’t want to go, somewhere flat.

A friend told me I should meditate more so I won’t get irritated by people around me. I considered that yesterday as I drove to Tacoma. For one hour I contemplated the lack of peace and acting out. My pink bubble came into awareness. I imagined breathing into it and filling it up, making it round and full. By breathing this intention I felt my brain body shift into a relaxed meditative state. What will happen if I do this “bubble breathing” several times during the day? I am practicing today and find it very natural. This pink bubble may become my best buddy!
