Why the Well?
The well is a symbol of sacred and fundamental beliefs, old and new.
By working in the container of the well, it brings about associations with:
- Water that brings life, especially if it delivers clean water to hydrate and keep us alive. We are made up of 70% water.
- What comes up from a well is unknown as to the potential possibilities of creativity.
- The well is a human-made structure it connects to the skills of our own manifestation in life.
- The well structure delves deep into Earth and connects to Mother Earth the nourishing source for all life on this planet.
- The darkness inside a deep well provides for gifts to appear from its own source within.
- A healthy community resource that connects all living near it, there is a supportive network around the well.
- Water cleanses and clears what is not needed and encourages ease to move on.
- The well reminds us of the contrast in life from darkness into the light, and travelling along a tunnel towards the light.
- The bucket in the well is a reminder of the required determination, persistence and drive required to bring each to their own light from the darkness.
As always the yoga nidra contains important breathwork and oppositional work to help bring about the understanding of how we each create our own reality. These components provide a space and time for perspective shifting into another light.
The oppositional component of a yoga nidra is to open our minds so that we can consciously choose our experience of emotions and sensations. If there is an opposites practice that is a challenge for you, then make sure that you allow time to journal and reflect on this. Look for professional therapeutic support too, especially from a therapist who offers somatic elements to their practice.
