keeping the flame burning

KEEPING THE FLAME BURNING

“ Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”
– The Buddha

The element of Fire, when it is young and just learning about power tends to be bold and perhaps a little self centered. You see the world is all about them and they are great at charming others to agree. As a small child they are often labeled as having a big ego and being self centered which often sticks with them into adult, which contributes to their natural shyness. Yes Leos can be quite shy. Fire also elicits jealousy for those in their wake. Few can keep up with people who have a lot of fire. Most importantly it is not there fault. It is not fun to be full of energy and then be shamed about who you are. For those with strong fire they will tell you they find just as many people being attracted to their fire, as those repelled by the heat. It is one of those difficult edges for those with lots of fire. Repeatedly leave them wondering “am I too much”, or “ am I to big.”

So here is some medicine for fire. First it is realizing that sharing your eternal flame will not diminish its life. The true power of fire is recognizing that fire does not burn itself out nor does sharing their flame. Fire people know that truth, love, and honesty are what heals and they can relieve the pain and challenge of any life situation. When fire learns to share and bring warmth and light to world with consciousness new opportunities and experiences can be shared with everyone.

Now it is your turn to set your intention for how you desire to share your spark for life. Today observe and reflect on your own experiences with the element of Fire. Release any story or judgments you have about being BIG and BOLD. Imagine what life would actually be like if you were. What might be different? What might you do? Then create an intention or mantra to guide you as you embrace and love the side of fire that is BIG and BOLD.

Here are a few examples to get you started:

  • I am filled with life force and have the ability to bring life into everything I do.
  • I embrace my power and spark for life and use it as a catalyst for positive change.
