Setting up a blessing bowl is a wonderful gift we may offer to ourselves, others or earth. We place a bowl outside in a favourite spot, then add whatever calls each day. It may be a new bud, a full flower, a shell, a crystal, a pebble. We may play our drums there, tone into the water, just gaze into it with an open heart, expecting g nothing, but allowing the process. We may even throw into it all our unhappiness and ask it to be transmuted. We may see these waters as the harmonies of love– the Mother washing us clean of all that no longer serves us.
This is our space of reverence, of meditation and of peace. Here, we unite with creation, nature, ourselves, and here find joy and harmony for a time for balance, inner love and understanding.
But we can use this space for earth healing too.
When we hear about some of the traumas that are global, we want to do what we can to help. In the early days I used to will myself there in vision and add light where I was able. The experiences I had were very real to me, but often left me drained, and so left me wondering if what I had done was right after all. Some of those experiences would read like a good fantasy novel I suppose and while it was private, I wondered who would have believed me if I had told others about them.. Often though, I worked with others and we would unite globally at the same time, then discuss our experiences later. Many of these were so similar, it is hard to see them as colourful imagination, for in truth I always asked myself what was really going on—did I have a good imagination, or was there more to it. Yet time and time again, these experiences proved to be true.
As the years went by and maybe as earths consciousness changed as well as my own sacred pathways, the way I dealt with these energies changed too. Now while I could add my prayers and love to these events, It was not needed for me to be involved with them on an emotional or etheric level, and it freed me.
There have been many unfolding catastrophes on earth lately– Japan is the most severe and all of earth kind is touched by the terrible tragedy. There is much on the net about the reasons behind it. Some feel wrong to me, and I gave up reading all those so called channels from so called higher energies long ago. Some are ok of course, but whenever there is attached fear or demands in them, it is a sure sign they are false. Anything out there designed to manipulate, create fear or make demands is not of the light.
Also as earths energies shift, predictions may also fall into a heap. Nothing is what it seems , no future can truly be written – we are the masters of our race and of earth now. Our collective can shift mountains or return love to a place of great fear.
The bottom line for me with Japan was that while I could send love, add compassion and healing – it is not my task to interact in any way with these energies. The drama being played out is overwhelming , heart breaking, yet it is not mine and so I release any attachment to it. Instead I choose to add some flowers or whatever calls into a bowl of water and asking the earth herself to act as guardian, to place it on the earth and leave it to its own unfolding. What ever is created is not from me, rather the Spirit of the earth and it is the earth I ask to do this.
At times we need to see when it is appropriate to add energies and when we are to step away. Some of the great dramas unfolding on earth will ask much of us and yet for me, I believe we hold the light like a net of energies, holding earth in balance and strengthening all we are able to give to fragments remaining in the akashic light that surrounds earth. Love binds and holds, hate and fear destroy. If we look at the earth now, there are many areas where great holes exist the akashic light that surrounds earth. As we add love, we aid its healing and the strength and love we provide aid whatever is out of sync for its own healing
There. while I add my prayers and compassion to the Japanese destructions I ask that the Spirit of earth be my emissary through the essence I set up as an offering for peace, love and healing.
I also suggest others do this too, and for themselves. this becomes the blessing bowl and we add whatever calls each day. This is our space of reverence, of meditation and of peace. here we unite with creation, nature, ourselves, and here find peace for a time for balance, inner love and understanding.
That’s the best I can do .
