Considered a sacred tree in India, Nepal and Sri Lanka, the Saraca tree is native to the rainforests of India. Its clusters of orange-yellow flowers are commonly found near temples and royal places. The Saraca flower helps us deeply value what we offer to the world and encourages us to bring our ideas and projects to fruition. It allows us to give birth to great ideas that create a ripple effect around the world. It dissolves any tendencies to strain, rush, go against natural rhythms, spin out of control or get stuck. Saraca magnifies enduring qualities within us like patience, peacefulness and slowing down to do things correctly. Read more about Saraca here!

In what areas of your life do you feel like you’re running out of time?
When do you find yourself worried, impatient or rushing?
When do you feel stuck or stagnant?
What practices help you feel most in tune with the natural rhythms of life?
What is the value of what you’re currently bringing to the world?
When have you felt that you have all the time in the world?
Allow more spaciousness into your problem solving, for example, instead of ‘figuring it out’, do the opposite:
give yourself more time + spaciousness to explore the possibilities.
Try the mantra: ‘slow down’ for a week and see what happens.
Ask questions about the areas that you feel rushed, and let the questions percolate, without needing immediate answers.
Give yourself an abundance of time - more than you think you need - to discover the answers.
Allow yourself to indulge in the mental framework of having ‘all the time in the world’ to map your projects/life.
If you find yourself either rushing or feeling stuck, stop doing what you’re doing. Do something completely different - shift into another activity.
Come back to your project later, giving it time + space to settle.
