Go ahead ~ defenestrate ~ you'll feel better

Defenestration is the act of throwing someone or something out of a window.

Last night we held a little defenestration ceremony of our own (but not with live humans). About 16 of us gathered in my home to put some intention behind removing obstacles in our lives, with a tip of the hat to the Hindu Lord Ganesh.

By writing or simply intending those obstacles to be removed and then sending them off outside of our personal spaces ~ we were successful in lightening our loads. Of course there was a bit of alchemy involved, defenestration alchemy and only those of us there will really know that secret.

My co-host Kristy opens the ceremonies on the balcony

Shemaiah demonstrates the "defenestrate jig" after experiencing the lightness of letting go

David puts some personal intentions into bubbles for immediate evanescing

Katherin enjoys the look of the "nose cup" ~

Jon makes an obvious statement ~ we already knew Mr. St. Pea was a big cheese

Some of the physical tools (as opposed to mental tools) of defenestration ~ bubblemaking, incense and ninja parachute people

What a timely post for me to read! I need some serious defenstrating! Just reading about yours gave me a little lift! Thanks!

The word "defenestration" was first used to describe Czech protestants who threw catholic imperial ministers out the windows of Prague castle. A friend of mine is the direct descendant of the first defenestrator (not the defenestratee):
