A Dedication to the Earth & A New VisionBy Andrea on November 27, 2010 — 13 Comments
For over a year, I’ve been doing some very private meditative research combining visioning and essential sounding. I am very quiet about this work for I am slowly gathering confidence in the visions and shifts I observe.
However, something occurred in a recent meditation that feels important to share.
Here’s what happened…
I begin each session by centring and grounding my energy, tuning into my heart, and connecting with my guides before I ask, “What am I to see today?”
This morning I was guided to look at the full set of 300 Raven Essences. In my imagination, I saw them lined up, vibrating like a youthful army — alert, on attention, and ready to be deployed.
Then I intuitively asked what sound was needed to let this initial vision evolve. It was the crystal bowl, which I played as a homoeopathic application of sound for several minutes before looking again.
Shimmering waves of energies now streamed above and below the bottles, much more fluid and expansive than in the first vision.
Next was my snake rattle, which I gently shook, creating a snake-like hissing sound.
When I looked again at the essences, I was shocked! The cylindrical bottles had morphed into round containers, like mini perfume bottles. I had not expected this at all…
Then I made a very low chant with rich, dark undertones which often stimulates a visceral resonance with deep earth-energies.
The final scan came in the form of a message rather than an image. I was deeply moved.
Here is the message:
Through this vision-sound process, an essential threshold has been crossed.
The Raven Essences are no longer part of my personal creative matrix. They now serve the Earth — not my creative will.
Dedicated to the Earth, the essences now live where they can best serve — within the womb of the Great Mother.
Several days later, this experience was followed by another equally powerful meditation.
Ever since I began making flower essences, I’ve been living with the question, “How do they really work? What is their healing potential?”
With mostly anecdotal information and very little scientific research, there is no simple answer to these questions. In my own practice, I stopped a long time ago expecting them to work in traditional allopathic ways. They simply don’t follow prescriptive expectations. If someone has persistent headaches, it rarely works to give him or her my ‘migraine’ combination. Working intuitively, I’ve adopted a much more nuanced approach. An open mind and listening heart provide insights and shifts that I can rarely anticipate.
My morning meditation began as usual with calling in my guides. However, everything began to shift and I became unexpectedly emotional as I was shown an extraordinary vision. Cloaked with the love of my guides, I was acknowledged as ‘Daughter of the Earth‘. It felt like a form of baptism. In the vision, my flesh was almost transparent while my guides were in clear relief — owl on my left shoulder, raven over my heart, heron behind my head, the plant kingdom pulsing in my root chakra, snake in my right hand, Talulah Raven, my dwarf daughter, at my side, my ancestors standing in pairs behind me. Two powerful guides, Sheenanowah and Iliadne, appeared as a pillar of light throughout my torso and a shield at my kidneys while Sophia, goddess of wisdom, lovingly surrounded the entire tableau.
Stunned and humbled by the beautiful vision, I wept with gratitude at the abundance of love in and around me.
After a little time, I collected myself and looked again… and this was when I understood how the essences work!
I was in a chrysalis or egg that was filled with amniotic-like fluid, the liquid crystal energy of the essences. Utterly protective and nurturing, I saw the essences were strengthening and stabilizing my powerful vision. This new perception of my soul, recognized by my broken-open heart, was immediately enveloped by the energy of the essences.
With the swiftness of deep intuitive knowing, I realized I was being shown the role of the essences — to support and surround the chrysalis phase of our complete body-soul transformation. In this way, they serve the process of metamorphosis, easing both the dissolution of the old reality and the emergence of the new.
With this awareness came the message, “This is your work for the next five years — to work with them with this understanding, and to articulate the vision for others.”
As I share this with you, I wonder.… As this transformation occurs with a swift, yet lovingly choreographed intensity in my life, I suspect it is also happening in different ways with many other people. Is this true?
