The scent of cinnamon calls us out from our caves of inner isolation and opens the door to new worlds. Just as this warming herb can increase blood flow in our veins, it also helps us to open our hearts to our moment-to-moment experience.
Traditionally, Cinnamon has been used as a strong anti-microbial, anti-fungal, carminative and stimulant. It is featured in our blend recommended for fighting colds, called Flew Away, as well as our seasonal blend, Holiday Spice.
Cinnamon also helps with the assimilation of our dreams and the messages they contain.
TRY THIS: Inhale Cinnamon on a cotton ball or diffused in the air. Allow your mind to settle first on the movement of your breath. Ask yourself, "What are my hidden dreams?" Let your awareness follow the myriad of images that arise. Inhale cinnamon again and ponder, "How can I make these dreams come alive?" Give yourself time to journal and bring Cinnamon along for the ride. Trust that by writing about what you desire to see in the world, you will be able to make the connections that will show you how to bring these dreams to life.
The affirmation that Robbi Zeck assigns cinnamon in her book, The Blossoming Heart, is "I am in the present moment." This awareness of the present moment is almost always all we ever need. It is also our greatest gift.
Allow yourself to get connected with the present moment this month, and see what new ideas may arise.
