The Chariot energies prompt: Move forward with confidence. Be disciplined, yet flexible in your pursuits. Embody the journey.
The Chariot and the Cedar
The Chariot energy can be embodied by a man, woman or situation. This energy can positively influence your progress on the path. It may be interpreted to mean that no matter how narrow or precarious the correct path, one must continue on. Positive energies include success, talent and efficiency.
The Chariot energies manifest in Cedar.
The Chariot and the Cedar both help life become a forward moving gift. Embark on a deeper quest, learn from ancient wisdom and forge a new path. Cedar is both a spiritual vessel used in sacred ceremony and a literal vessel when it is used for making canoes.
Like strong, flexible cedar roots finding their way through the forest, be determined and opportunistic.
Travel between worlds of heaven and earth. Bring the knowledge of spirit and soul into the body just as the cedar trunk contains the stories of the earth. Have faith in the experience. The journey is the triumph that brings mastery.
Healing With the Color Green
Green revitalizes your nervous system, heart, circulatory system and liver, lowering blood pressure and releasing frustration and anger.
Meditation and healing are enhanced by Green. It stimulates growth and is good for healing broken bones. Surround anyone who is unwell with Green. Absorb Green rays to revitalize your nervous system and heart.
Focus on flooding your nervous system with Green rays of light. Direct the light throughout your whole spine before moving it into your heart. Then rotate this Green light around your heart until you feel your heart expand, relax, and full up with vitality. Say:
- Divine Intelligence, please release all the pressure and stress from my heart and nervous system, and fill me up with your healing, revitalizing Green light.
