Flow Sequences #DoMagick

So I’m starting to develop my flow sequences. I am using The Yoga Deck by Olivia Miller to help me design the flow sequences. The deck includes 50 cards. 12 include breathing exercises/meditations, and the rest are various poses. To help me design my “Daemonic Elements” flow series’,  I separated the cards into logical (to me) Earth, Air, Fire, Water poses and pranayama.  From each stack I created logical flows.

For example – Sufi Mother’s Breath is nurturing to the spirit and sense of well being (hence the name) and so I included that in the earth pile. Bellows Breath is very much about air (in my logic), whereas Breath of Fire is designed to heat up the body and purify it, hence fire. Alternate nostril breath is designed to balance and calm the forces within – tame the emotional state. So it went into the water pile. The meditation cards were all put back in the box since I will do my meditations on the sigils of the corresponding elemental Daemon to complete each session.

The stretch cards also went back into the box since I will likely incorporate those into every sequence. Neck rolls, leg stretches, etc… are a nice warm up anyway. Mountain, Corpse, and Tree all went under Earth immediately. Proud Warrior and Hero went under fire since I consider those ACTIVE poses. Mind you that you may not agree with my pose designation, so if you wanted to experiment with this, I think you should put the poses in the most logical place for you. Spinal Twist and Half Moon went into Water, and Downward Dog into air (freedom of thought and movement).  These are just a few of my associations.

So now to put together the sequences (each pose will be done on each side of the body where applicable):

EARTH:

  1. Invoke Belial
  2. Sufi Mother’s Breath
  3. Mountain
  4. Tree
  5. Triangle
  6. Bridge
  7. Bow
  8. Child’s Pose
  9. Corpse
  10. Meditation on Sigil

 

AIR:

  1. Invoke Lucifer
  2. Bellows Breath
  3. Standing Forward Bend
  4. Kneeling Lunge
  5. Downward Dog
  6. Half Locust
  7. Bent Knee Sitting Forward
  8. Inclined Plane
  9. Sitting Forward Bend
  10. Meditation on Sigil

 

FIRE:

  1. Invoke Flereous
  2. Breath of Fire
  3. Yoga Mundra
  4. Chair
  5. Proud Warrior
  6. Half Shoulderstand
  7. Plank
  8. Hare
  9. Hero
  10. Thunderbolt
  11. Meditation on Sigil

 

WATER:

  1. Alternate Nostril Breath
  2. Half Moon
  3. Spinal Twist
  4. Bound Angle
  5. Spider
  6. Reclining Spinal Twist
  7. Boat
  8. Cobra
  9. Sounding Breath
  10. Meditation on Sigil

 

Notice how the poses match the qualities of each element.  The Earth poses exemplify stability and grounding. The Air poses help clear the mind and are expansive. The Fire poses will heat up the body’s core and energize. And the Water sequence should have calming, relaxing effects. The fire sequence has the most poses, the water sequence the fewest.

So that is the plan. Now to decide if I want to alternate to a new element each day, or do the sequence that I most need for the day.  I would like to, at least once, do all of the sequences in one session to see if it’s an effective “moving” elemental balancing ritual in and of itself.

NOTE – I have considered adding some chakra work to this, but I need to think more on this. I have 7 days to work it out. LOL

I welcome thoughts on this.

  1. Hey, Steph! This is an exciting concept! Being aware of my body’s imbalances is a weak point of mine. I wonder if these sequences would aid in teaching me to sense what I need more of or what I have too much of? THEN a sequence (or sequences) could be preformed as needed for balance : ) I look forward to hearing about your personal experiences with these sequences!
