In a Nutshell

When I do these energetic sessions I don’t seek to “change” anything. I tap into the group energy by calling each person’s name out loud and then I listen and watch for what I am shown and where I am to work energetically. Sometimes it is almost completely energetic and sometimes I “see” a lot. Each of us has different ways of experiencing the same energy. I will share what I saw and felt with the purpose of being of service.

What I felt

An energy of frustration, grief, and worry was moved out of the groups energy field. A lot of this energy was stuck in the chest (lung) and the spleen area. When this energy cleared it allowed an expansion in the belly, below the navel in the 2nd chakra area, but on a deeper level than chakric energy. The energy became very expansive and is connected to TRUST, unconditional sustenance, support and creativity.  The energy to form a more authentic life.

This energy is a harvest and is here to encourage and power your authentic presence. It came to me that the group is working on becoming more truthful. In this coming season you may find yourselves eliminating many things from your lives ..… a way of being, certain friends, belongings, anything that is not in alignment with the more truthful “you” that is on full tilt boogy to appear! It has been pushing!!

You may find yourself feeling anxiety or guilt about this eliminating force if you do not stay focused and grounded. You may feel this energy of “discarding” coming from many other people as well, and you may also be on the receiving end of it! If you are sensitive it may cause some anxiety just by feeling what is going on around you. It is important to support yourself physically, energetically and emotionally.

This is not a small thing. This is Big Truth……..we can no longer lie or pretend to be someone we aren’t. It is time to tell the truth, to use truth as your protection instead of fearing you will be harmed or suffer in some way for being truthful. Some of you may find yourself feeling unable to get up off the couch as  the self that has played a “role” for so long argues with the True Self. Some may feel intense anxiety. It is time to be honest and let the chips fall where they may and trust that your honesty will lead you to the right place.

A little exercise was suggested! If you feel  led.

      1. Please write down your harvest for this past year. What have the seeds you have sown brought to you? It was emphasized to ask you to make sure that you count the things you have learned through difficulty as a unique harvest of great value and recognize it.
      2. Name the skills and improvements this harvest has brought to you…..or that you see might need to be implemented.
      3. How has your harvest helped you to become more truthful?
      4. Write what you are grateful for about this harvest.
      5. What needs to be discarded in order for your harvest to utilized to the fullest……sometimes it is only an attitude, sometimes it is more tangible, a job, a diet, a role.
      6. What does this new way/harvest feel like when you are living it to the fullest?

Details of Session

Ten minutes before we started it began to pour rain so I was unable to light a fire in the pit outside! I figured we must need the energy of water more than fire, though both seemed important.  I did make a small bonfire with white sage in my smudge bowl and kept it burning and smudging throughout the session.

I offered the prayer and read everyone’s names out loud. Everyone who had joined the list by 9:30 pm EDT was included.

Even if you signed up late an envelope of energy is available for anyone who sets his intention to benefit . As your names were read a beautiful energy began to surround us.

When I started the meditation and energy work I saw a pyramid like structure in a vision…..it was very dark and at the top, where a capstone normally would be was white/golden light…..atop the capstone energy were several very large blue beings.

It has been my experience that these beings are associated with a very high level of spiritual energy. The golden white light being generated was coming from them.

My vision then began to be filled by different plant spirits coming to assist. There were four.

 

 

 

Fire Spike (Odontonema stricta) – provided a spark of energy to get things moving in the energy field of the group. It is actually blooming here on my land now.  This is its season, now until around November. It is a wonderful hummingbird plant and helps to move anything that blocks joy.

 

 

Blue Cornflower  (Centaurea cyanus ) – gives confidence to go beyond self-imposed limitation, heals betrayal and grief.

 

 

 

 

Spanish Needle (bidens alba) –for  tenacity, healing, feeds the body and the soul, for thriving in chaos, disturbed and difficult situations, provides a lot of support.  This plant is actually blooming now on my property as well and is the flower essence I made on the Equinox.

 

 

 

Yellow Rose –  for acceptance, interpersonal connections, calming the mind, engendering joy, helps to radiate golden healing energetic light. (The yellow rose was really a big player in moving the energy stuck in the lung and spleen area.)

 

 

 

The organ areas that came up for the group were spleen and lungs. The energy was very stuck there but moved well during the energy work. These are areas you might consider giving extra support with herbs and diet during this season.

You can read more at these links. I don’t know the person who wrote this but felt these are good explanations of the two energies and it saved my fingers some typing so much!

After the yellow rose came the energy in the chest lifted and, all of the sudden, we dropped through the top of the pyramid I had seen previously.  It was as if the blue beings had opened it up for us. The flowers had helped to clean our energy so that we could get through. When we dropped down into the pyramid there was a joyous feeling bubbling up from the group about having entered  inside this place, even though it seemed we were in the dark.

I felt a huge space expanding in my belly…….in the same area I had previously described opening on a new level on the summer solstice a year ago. It has been explained to me is that this area is representative of energy before it is in form, that which is connected to unconditional sustenance for our physical lives as well as all other areas. This energy level is deeper than the chakras and has been described as the Dan Tien. It  is below the navel (about three-four finger widths below and two finger widths behind the navel), and is sometimes called “the golden stove”.

For me, this represents the continuing opening to the divine Mother/feminine that we are doing now to balance the overly masculine expression of energy that has been prevalent for so many years. It feels like the energy of Grace with a distinctly different calibration…..not showering from above but welling up from within. The opening of a deep well.

Two things came next……. I started hearing a chant (which I have linked to below) and I began to chant it…… then I was given the number of a Sacred Path card. # 37

Here is the chant:

Adi Shakti Mantra – you might find this practice useful during this Fall. This is usually practiced for 40 days.

http://www.spiritvoyage.com/globalsadhana/personalpower

Complete Mantra: Adi Shakti, Adi Shakti, Adi Shakti, Namo Namo Sarab Shakti, Sarab Shakti, Sarab Shakti, Namo Namo Pritham Bhagvati, Pritham Bhagvati, Pritham Bhagvati, Namo Namo Kundalini Mata Shakti, Mata Shakti, Namo Namo

Translation: I bow to (or call on) the primal power. I bow to (or call on) the All encompassing power and energy. I bow to (or call on) that through which God creates. I bow to (or call on) the creative power of the Kundalini, the Divine Mother Power.

More Information: The Adi Shakti Mantra tunes one into the frequency of the Divine Mother, and to the primal protective, generating energy. It is said that chanting it eliminates fears and fulfills desires.

Sacred Path Card by Jamie Sams
#37 Great Mystery   (this seems to fit right in with what  came through about honoring difficult harvests and becoming more truthful.)

……..“In receiving this card, you are being reminded to give gratitude for all of your lessons; it changes any pain to gain. Focus on your creative capacity and you can change anything. It may be time to drop any blame, shame, or regret and take charge of your life. The victim role doesn’t suit Two-leggeds. We are created in the image of an infinite Creator and are therefore limitless co-creators.

In all cases, Great Mystery will continue to confound and astound us every time we try to figure it all out. Stop your mind’s chatter and listen to the Source. Original source shows us that the Mystery lives within us and contains all the answers we need to find a long The Sacred Path. The Sacred Path of Beauty is experiencing the mystery of life without having to control the outcome from our tunnel-vision command post. Go with the flow and watch the glory of limitless co-creation. After all, Great Mystery is the Divine plan and everything is on Schedule.”

~ Did I mention I awoke the next morning to three huge house spiders inside my house near my front door?!?  🙂  Spider is often considered the symbol for creativity! ~

This concludes the notes. I hope they are helpful to you in balancing yourself with the energies present this Fall!
