THE ROSE| October 16, 2015


A Spiritual Journey

11:45 – 12:30  AM

MEDITATION NOTES
  • ♪I’m back in the saddle again♪
  • Remembering the visions from Wednesday – when I sat on the sun porch after work (I didn’t do any writing, though):
  1. VERY pink flower…a rose on a long thick green stem….
  2. A white house
  3.  A pattern – of flower symbols ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿
SYMBOLISM

The visions may symbolize  fresh love and new romance [pink rose], the soul and self  [house],  and suggests that life has become monotonous and repetitious [pattern].

  • left arm – feels like a muscle pinch
  • chills through legs
  • ‘you’re not really looking at anything’….GUIDANCE….{TY}
  • Attention to left side of neck
  • Vision: a (right) hand…the knuckles  [hard work and diligence]
  • Vision: of a black girl ‘gathering groceries’ (pushing a shopping cart)…wearing workout style clothes
  • Heard “everyone just asked for her to do ‘dat [sic]”
  • Then “sometimes I just feel like I could do this all day”
  • ‘wooden spoons’
  • ‘balance’
  • Vision – boxes…like cardboard boxes
  • Something about ‘graffiti drunk’
  • Attention to the throat
  • song lyric ♪all you need is someone to lean on♪
  • Heard “The Buckeyes win”
  • Sudden feeling of doubt about a decision made
  • The past – can’t change it
  • Heel of right foot – feels like its digging down into the ground
  • feels like ‘they’re telling me (something)’
  • S-name….B-name….Christmas tree…
  • ’disposable

END

IMG_3850Okay, so I think the ‘wooden spoons’ and ‘The Buckeyes win’ came to me  because we are going to M&A’s tomorrow for the Chili Cook-off – and to watch the Buckeyes play football.

And I just finished a set of wooden spoons to give to A.

But will  the Buckeyes win? We’ll see. ☺

WORDS

I woke this morning to three words…

South
East
Clubbing

Of course I knew these words must have meaning for me. I am knee-deep in trying to understand and connect the symbolism of my dreams and visions, so there is most likely a message for me in these words. Plus, I used the word ‘clubbing’ to describe  how I felt in one part of the Airport Dream.

stockvault-grunge-flag134750

Clubbing symbolizes a sense of belonging.

 But what about south and east?

SOUTH: SYMBOLISM and SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE

✧ life, expectations, and questions
✧ Chinese zodiac: Physical strength, health, adventure, loyalty
✧ Celtic symbolism:  fire, energy, passion, creativity
✧ Time phases:  Present – Now
✧ Native American: beginnings/purity
✧ Astrological Zodiac: Fire/Leo…….FIRE = ACTION

EAST: SYMBOLISM and SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE

✧ inner wisdom, rejuvenation, and spiritual enlightenment
✧ Chinese zodiac: Trust, sincerity, love, compassion
✧ Celtic symbolism: air, communication, new beginnings, new     growth
✧ Time phases: Future
✧ Native American: salvation/spirit
✧ Astrological Zodiac: Earth/Taurus EARTH=Physical Manifestation

TUESDAY MEDITATION NOTES
  • ‘Channeling’
  • Felt warmth across entire body – like a mini, mild hot flash
  • ‘It is not our thoughts that hold us hostage, but our fear of being judged by others for expressing our thoughts.’ [LESSON]
  • ‘Gratitude is positively acknowledging what you have without focusing any thought on what you don’t.’ [LESSON]
  • Vision: an arm  with thin bands wrapped around it

THE VISION MEANING –  reach out and care for people – reach out to others; reconnect with an old friend ♥

TODAY’S  ANGEL NUMBER:  33 (Again!)

“The Angel Number 33 is a message from your angels that any positive changes or projects you are considering right now will be well worth your while, and you will be assisted in the undertaking.”

Left arm aches….
‘Relax. Let go. Just be.

THANK YOU

MEDITATION BASICS

My niece came over this evening for some assistance with meditation. We sat outside on the front porch and I guided her through the basics. I can  only try to share with her what works for me – and with the understanding what works for me may not work for others. But there are some very basic practices which I focus on… and I am grateful to be able to share through my own experiences.

  • Get comfortable…take a few moments to Hear, See and Feel your current Environment (may then want or need to close your eyes)
  • Pray, Surround, Protect and Anchor yourself… for me it is in the light of (the highest and most divine) God
  • Breathe… Inhale – Hold – Exhale: Slowly – three (3) times – keeping your attention focused on each inhalation and exhalation
  • Relax… Now, as your breath returns to normal, relax each portion of the body – beginning with the feet and working upward through the forehead
  • And now, just continue to focus on breathing

It really is that simple.  ~ Namaste

SUNDAY

LET GO AND LET GOD

Spent the last week reflecting. I meditated almost daily, but the focus of  this ritual was to just go inward. To let go…and to let God.

I am working through thoughts, feelings, and emotions which have been resurfacing for me. I am learning a lot about myself – and it’s not always pretty. In fact, it is sometimes quite emotionally painful for me. But with this pain comes understanding…and acceptance. And letting go.

I am spending some time learning more about symbolism, numerology (mostly about my own numbers), and  reviewing the lessons and guidance I have received over the last year.

During this period of retrospection  I continue to receive signs… in the form repeating numbers and visions. And I am practicing gratitude. 

REPEATING NUMBERS

GOING BACK SONY DSC

I have been feeling overly sensitive these last few days. Thoughts, feelings and emotions are surfacing that I guess I am supposed to confront. A little bit of sadness, a little bit of anger.  Choose your battles, right?  So I choose to release any sadness and any thoughts or situations which create anger.  And so it is.

I’ve been spending time interpreting the Airport Dream. I feel like I am supposed to make sure I understand what this dream is telling me.  I understand it is time to ‘let go’, but I believe there is more….lessons perhaps, or things I should be aware of.  So, I’m looking at the symbolism (which is basically the entire dream) in comparison to my initial thoughts and feelings about this dream. It is an interesting and enlightening process.

Numerology & Astrology: Connecting

Today I listened to the September Numerology and Astrology forecast on  numerologist.com (my fav ♥). And it’s all there… the information needed to help me  understand what is happening right now (energetically, emotionally, even physically). And the STAR  is even part of it! Funny, but this discovery gave me this new-found hope and inspiration.

And it is time to begin to embrace it for what it is!

Decided to take a break from my activities today, do a little journaling, and then meditate. Time check 11:11 AM. Perfect.

TODAY’S MEDITATION: 11:31 AM -12:07 PM

WEDNESDAY

During today’s practice I received more lessons. About writing, And trust.  And inspiration. About being fearless. Things I am passionate about. Lessons about symbolism…like Mickey Mouse, Disney, and fairy tales, and the feelings these symbols invoke. Like Happiness.  And I was reminded there are two sides….the light AND the dark.  ☯

And finally, some guidance about the sadness.  I was reminded the sadness ‘makes you confront it, understand it, and then release it.’

And so it is. Thank You.

WEDNESDAY

stockvault-autumn-colors102368GATEWAY

The Labor Day holiday seemed to be a gateway for my life to become filled with opportunities.  It seems appropriate for me as the weather begins to change and Autumn fills the air. It is truly my favorite season.

I AM

I feel this need to stay connected with nature. It is stronger than normal.  So I have kicked back a bit in regards to my daily meditation practice.

I am meditating either outside or sitting on the sun porch. But I am focusing right now on me…. staying healthy, balanced and strongGrounded, anchored, and protected.

I am working through understanding the symbolism of not only my dreams, but  the visions and symbols I have been connecting with during my meditation practice.

I am reconnecting with some long-lost friends ….and making new connections.

 I am learning to trust.

And I am learning lessons, about asking questions to gain clarity – and about repeating what you hear in your own words to ensure you understand what someone is telling you.

I Am.

So until tomorrow….

TUESDAY

Being Thankful

stockvault-rainbow-clouds143806Yesterday ended up being a really great and productive day. Thank You! It actually felt as if time slowed down for me.

⌚⌚⌚⌚⌚⌚⌚⌚⌚

I started updating my Book of Lessons. In addition to all of the lessons and guidance, there is symbolism throughout my journal…starting with the nostrils almost 2 years ago [see October 2013]. And I think I may have found Jocelyn Turner. But still so much to learn…

Today I meditated on the sun porch. The a/c is on inside – so it’s easier to close me onto the porch than the cats. Plus, good energy is out there!

Sadness and the Sun

I slept until after 8:00 AM today –  but as soon as I was up and moving around a sense of sadness filled me…and stayed with me – stockvault-sunshine108979until I finally went outside and grounded it away.  And hello sunshine ☀ – you’re  back!

I’m not sure why I was feeling this heavy sadness…. was it even mine?  Seems I’ve been asking myself this question a lot lately. But I do know grounding ( and the sun) helped me release it.  And shortly after grounding – I  even remembered the dream I woke to this morning.  I can’t share the details of my dream – but I will say there was a message in it …as well as an ‘action‘ for me to take.

So …keep yourself grounded, stay in the light – and pay attention to your dreams. ♥

About My Meditation Notes…

 MY SPIRIT GUIDES: Samuel

In May of last year, I was introduced to Samuel –  one of my Spirit Guides – my Master Teacher (read about My Psychic Reading  here). But honestly, I was doubtful about this ‘spirit guide‘ information I was getting from this psychic. I mean, I had already been trying to connect with my guides (or guide) during meditation – with no luck.  And besides, shouldn’t I have some kind of feeling associated with meeting my guide for the first time? Because I didn’t. Nada. Nothing. And a stranger can come into my home and tell me all about him? Really? So the idea of this Guide named Samuel seemed almost embarrassing at the time….as much as I wanted to believe it. Well, it turns out Samuel is my Guide, along with Felix and Arletha (and a couple of others…check out the photo of My Spirit Guides here).  And each Guide has a very specific purpose for me… Samuel’s is to help me create – because he is all about the Writing!

SYMBOLISM: a foot print in the sand

FootstepsSo – I’m sure the vision of the footprint in the sand is symbolic (well, okay – I got the word symbolic, then the name Samuel, then the vision of the footprint in the sand….come on now – obvious! ☺  I found a connection with the following – especially considering my Spirit Guide Samuel is with me again…

“The Footprint – As A Symbol The Footprint is a very Ancient and Sacred Symbol. Symbolically,The Footprint represents the Memory, and the Teachings, of the Master Teacher.The Master Teacher has been called by many names throughout the Ages… Each one of these Master Teachers were a “channel” through whom Divine Wisdom was imparted to humanity….The Footprint reminds us that these Master Teachers once resided in our earthly domain and shared Divine Wisdom with us…”

 LESSONSVernaculars of God

A message came through for me today…three words – about God, or of God. I didn’t hear the first word clearly – but know it was a word beginning with the letter v and  had four syllables… like ver-tic-u- les (verticules?) And there is no such word… so perhaps the word was vernaculars. …“Vernaculars of God”.

Vernacular definition:

ver·nac·u·lar vərˈnakyələr/ noun 1. the language or dialect spoken by the ordinary people in a particular country or region. “he wrote in the vernacular to reach a larger audience” synonyms: language, dialect, regional language, regionalisms, patois, parlance; More – Source: define vernacular – Google Search

I will have to think about this message. Was it for me, or maybe about, or for, another?

TODAY’S GUIDANCE:

• Everybody has this strength within… Inner Strength.  • Reminders to follow through  on promises. • My purpose lies within helping those who have lost – with love, healing, comfort and support • Am I supposed to feel something? How will I know? • You will Know. Relax and Allow. (Thank You ♥)
