The Inspiration/Education Day this year was a wonderful experience that brought many of us together to celebrate our love of colour and Aura-Soma.
I had a wonderful day being inspired by all those that came to share in our celebration. I had an interesting experience while participating in the Pomander at the end of the day.
I closed my eyes while I was following the ritual of passing the Gold Pomander through my Aura and found myself being able to see my hands moving through the motions. I tightly, squeezed my eyes closed to make sense of what was happening and this confirmed for me that I was physically seeing the room of people from the Astral plane.
The next thing that happened was extraordinary. Feminine figures wearing robes, that looked as smooth and dark as ebony, walked to each of us in the circle. When one of the hooded figures stood in front of me her hand opened as to give me a gift of light resonating from her open palm. The figures gave this to everyone in the room as they radiated absolute peace.
This experience was a beautiful peaceful finish for the day that confirmed to me that The Black Madonna had come to us all to guide us on our journey of Aura-Soma.
After this experience I felt that I needed to feel more into The Balck Madonna.
What came to me was that she was offering each one of us the possibility to look into our three lower chakra's, red, orange and yellow. This was a reminder that we all need to acknowledge the mystery of these chakra's allowing us to go into the darkness with light and sit and be, to go into the mystery of the depth of ourselves and see the beauty that is there. Our womanhood, Mother Earth and Isis to ground ourselves in the darkness and feel comfortable with all of the little corners that we had not brought light to. It is ok and safe to explore what we try to bury because if we do not it will some how manifest in our outer existence.
We all aspire to raise ourselves to our higher chakra's, which is a beautiful journey.
Sometimes on the way we forget that we rose out of the depth of creation, out of darkness following a divine spark. All is sacred and when we commit to looking at where we have come from then we may finally come to Olive (femine leadership) and dissolve the camouflage that has hidden our true selves and release all that we do not need anymore.
By acknowledging our mystical depth we ground ourselves (red) on Mother Earth on her rich, humus dark soil to be nourished by our past (acceptance), so we may move to our now and future. It is important not to forget our past and where we have come from because this gives us our strength and individuality, which gives us faith and hope that we are part of something greater than ourselves. If we are to live our true soul vision then we must move through our survival issues (red), our shock and trauma (orange), and our fears (yellow), this is where the Black Madonna will be all encompassing, holding us in the womb of eternity to help us, guide us and help to release all of these things so they become christed in the red, blissful in the orange and joyful in the yellow.
Accept this beautiful journey because in the darkness of the magenta is everything you need, strength, compassion, passion, energy, humanity and when we go into the depth of ourselves we can start to utilise these energy's to have all of the resources at our fingertips to move forward as rainbow warriors.
