Fire Meditation

candle_flame_2Have you ever meditated in front of a single candle?  I haven’t for a long while but felt led to this morning.

I was amazed to notice that when I first started and my thoughts were still popping around in my head, the flame was calm and motionless.  As I began to focus more on my breath and the flame and just let the other thoughts roll off of me, the flame began to dance and morph as if responding directly to my attention.

I was amazed and happily surprised.  Has anyone else ever experienced something like this?

Rainbow Dancer

This morning as I was preparing to meditate, I was thanking my guides and asking them to show me what I needed to see to have greater resonance with the Universe and the world around me.  As I then began meditating, they showed me an image of myself as a figure wrapped in all the colors of the rainbow, dancing across the world with the radiant glow of the sun bursting around everything.  The words “rainbow dancer” entered my head and I knew my guides were giving me another title to call myself, as well as a challenge to become whatever this rainbow dancer should be.

I felt joyous and loving and as if I was completely open the the beautiful possiblities in the world.  As this rainbow figure, I could become any shape needed to express an idea, I could rain down blessings on others and I felt invincible, powerful and purposeful.

After a bit of Googling, I learned that the rainbow dance is a traditional Native American dance of the southwest and is”connected with agriculture and functions as a prayer offering for rain.” (Source)  This blows me away because I have been meditating each morning to the thoughts of rain falling on my open palms and sunlight falling on my body.  Because, for me, dancing in the rain is a powerful experience I’ve loved and treasured since I was a child.  Rain is my favorite source of interaction with water and I feel it brings new possiblities and new growth with it that don’t exist otherwise.  And, of course, after reading about how amazing water is, it means all the more to me now.

I am astounded, humbled and blessed to have been given a new title and it only furthers my determination that I will start doing the qabalistic meditations I learned about last year to strengthen the colors of my rainbow (chakras) – because each level of the tree of life is associated with a color and a power and I have had a teasing in the back of my mind to pull out my notes and really dedicate myself to the mental, aural, scented and color cues associated with the angels and levels of the qabala.

This rainbow dancer that I can become needs to be the vibrant being of energy I was given a vision for and I feel so confident and safe seeing how my higher self, my guides and the Universe have been setting this up for me for many months.  It feels good to know I’m being taken care of.

Hidden Messages In Water

I recently picked up Masaru Emoto’s book The Hidden Messages in Water and it is blowing my mind.  Emoto experimented with exposing frozen water to different words and music and discovered that water crystals form in response to whatever the water was exposed to.  He goes on to discuss how water influences our evolution, how it is part of the vibrational resonance of everything and more.  It’s leading me to believe that our collective un/conscious is located in water.  I really highly recommend picking this up.  (All the images in this post are from the book.)

Here’s an excerpt to get you interested:

“When water freezes, the particles of water link together to form the crystal nucleus, and when the nucleus grows in a stable way into a hexagonal shape, a visible water crystal appears; but when information in conflict with nature is present, an incomplete crystal will be formed.

“The words ‘gratitude’ and ‘love’ form the fundamental principles of the laws of nature and the phenomenon of life.  Therefore, water in its natural form is required to create the hexagonal form.  By contrast, words such as “You fool” do not exist in nature and are instead unnatural elements created by people. Words that revile, harm and ridicule are the result of the culture created by humans.

“It’s likely that only vibrations of love and gratitude appear in nature, and observation of nature shows this to be true. The trees and plants show respect for each other by the way they live in harmony.  This also applies to the animal kingdom. Even lions only kill when hungry, and never at random. The plants in the shadows of the trees do not complain, and the animals do not try to take more food than they require.

“In an article in the March-April 1989 issue of the American scientific journal 21st Century Science and Technology, Warren J. Hamerman wrote that the organic matter that forms human beings generates a requency that can be represented by a sound at approximately fourty-two octaves above middle C (the note near the center of the piano keyboard). The modern standard for Middle C is approximately 262 Hz (Hertz) so this means that the sound reaches roughly 570 trillion HZ. Since Hz means vibrations per second, this indicates that human beings vibrate 570 trillion times a second, a number that exceeds the imagination and indicates incredible and wonderful hidden potential.

“It’s difficult to conceive 42 octaves, but just realize that the frequency of the human being is immensely diverse and unparalleled.  The human being holds a universe within, filled with overlapping frequencies, and the result is a symphony of cosmic proportions.

“When I talk to people about vibration and fequency, I use what I like to call the “do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti theory.” This simple theory just means that the frequency of everything in the cosmos can be summarized in seven parts – do, re, mi, fa, so, la, and ti.

“The universe consists of an uncountable number of things ranging from the lowest to the highest frequency.  It might help to imagine keys aligned in order on a piano keyboard, starting from the lowest sound.  If you press down on the white keys, you will hit do, re, mi, fa, so, la and ti.  When you move up the keyboard one octave, from one do to the next, the frequency doubles.  In other words, the doubling frequencies divided into seven parts is do, re, mi, fa, so, la, and ti.  Therefore the repeating of these seven sounds expresses all sound from the lowest to the highest.

“But what enlightenment can be obtrained by seeing frequency as sound?

“The most important revelation is that of resonance.  Sounds of the same requency resonate. This can be understood by making use of a turning fork, a Y-shaped instrument used to tune the pitch of an instrument or voice.

“When a turning fork is hit with a rubber hammer, creating a la sound, and a singer responds with a la, the tuning fork and the voice create a single frequency sound wave. This is called resonance. When one side creates a fequency and the other responds with the same sound, they resonate. It’s said that likes attract and so it would appear that vibrations attract and interact with each other.

“With some careful obsevation, you’ll see that this same phenomenon is going on al laround you.  A dog walking along the street may not respond to another animals it passes but it will be very responsive to a dog on the other side of the street. Dogs will  often howl when they hear the sound of a siren and this could also be a type of resonance.

“And we see this in human relationships: people who generate similar frequencies are attracted to each other, resulting in friendship. Certain people remain uninterested in each other, no matter how physically close they may be.  However, if someone you don’t like approaches you and you react, this also means that you are resonating in some way with that person.

“The greatest secret of Japanese martial arts is referred to as ‘winning without fighting.’ This essentially means avoiding resonating with the enemy. To fight and win results in resonance with the enemy and so the level of the relationship is very low.

“When frequencies are fundamentally incompatable, they cannot resonate.  We cannot accept what is fundamentally different from us.

“Howver, an interesting fact is that resonance can result even when frequencies are not identical.  This happens, for instance, when the frequency is doubled.  Playing the la key on the piano at 440 Hz and the la key at an octave lower at 220 Hz creates quite a pleasant resonating sound, and responding to a tuning fork with a sound one octave lower also creates nice resonance.

“When the frequency difference is twofold, fourfold, eightfold and so on – or one-half, one-quarter, and so on – the result is resonance. The principle of this relationships extends to infinity. No matter how distant the frequencies, resonance will result if one of the two numbers is a multiple of the other. We can also say that for every sound on each level there is a resonating sound on every other level.

“Most of the objects found in nature emit stable frequencies. Each sparrow sounds basically the same (though sparrows themselves might recognize slight differences), and the sounds made by dogs or cats do not havce a great deal of variation. By contrast, the human being is able to make full use of the do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti scale to create beautiful meoldies.  Wouldn’t you agree that this is indeed a marvelous ability?

“Humans are the only creatures that have the capacity to resonate with all other creatues and objects found in nature. We can speak with all that exists in the universe. We can give out energy and also receive energy in return. However, this iability is a two-edged sword. When people act out only on their own greed, they emit an energy that serves to destroy the harmony within nature.

“The defiling of our earth is the result of an unrelenting hunger for convenience and the fulfillment of greed, initiated by the industrial revolution. This has led to lifestyles of mass consumption that seriously threaten the global environment.

“We have embarked on a new century, a time in history when we must make srious changes in the way that we think. Only the human can resonate with the rest of the world and this is why it is so essential that we change our thinking, so we can live in harmony with nature and not go on destroying the earth. What vibration we give to the earth and what kind of planet we create depends on each one of us as individuals.

“How will you choose to live your life?

“If you fill your heart with love and gratitude, you will find yourself surrounded by so much that you can love and that yo ucan feel grateful for, and you can even get closer to enjoying the life of health and happiness that you seek. But what will happen if you emit signals of hate, dissatisfaction and sadness? Then you will probably find yourself in a situation that makes you hateful, dissatisfied and sad.

“The life you life and the world you live in are up to you.”

Spritual Magician

Your spiritual gift based on the chakra charts is mental magic.
You have strong talents in the magickal arts.

In most individuals the Brow chakra is most active from their late 20s and onward. However these mental powers also peak for a short period during adolescence. Most of the time we lose those powers without constant development. Remember to meditate often to develop these special gifts.

Individuals who are Spiritual Magicians have the power to change the world.
You have been sent here with a unique purpose to develop and use these gifts.

You have the power to wield the elements – earth – water – fire – air – spirit – and to gain deep insights into others. You are able to use universal life-force energies to manifest change and transformation in the world and in other individuals. Magicians are in constant danger of illusions in earlier development. Be conscious of these dangers and keep a firm foot in the material world to avoid getting lost in a sea of delusions. Magicians have the most powerful chakra gift but also the greatest responsibilites that come with it.

New Year, New Habits

While I didn’t intend to start any new spritual habits for a new year’s resolution, I almost did accidentally.  I’ve been concerned about being open to the Universe and what it’s saying to me, what it has for me.  So I decided to set aside a few minutes out of my morning before I do my yoga routine to sit and meditate, simply breathing and being open.

I’ve felt my palms prickle with energy as I imagine the gifts of the Universe falling into my hands like warm summer rain.  I’ve been led to thank and bless my guides and ancestors.  For a few minutes, I simply sit and let my mind feel a peaceful quite acceptance and gratitude that gives me a sense of relief and mental balance I am dearly learning to love.

Also changed this year and quite by accident is what I am now calling my “charm bag” – but what just started as a velvet bag with small crystals in it that I tuck into my pocket or bra every day.  I used to have a piece of turquoise and a piece of emerald, but I lost my emerald and found a stone I thought I’d lost, so I decided to change what I keep with me every day.  I still have the turquoise, to which I’ve added a Shiva stone (supposed to be the highest vibrational stone on the Earth), a moonstone (for fulfilling one’s destiny), and another stone that I can’t remember the name of, but it is for helping you understand your connectedness with everything.  I also added some charms I had been wearing on a necklace until recently: my Isis pendant, a rune pendant and a ring that has much of my personal energy within it.
