Journey to the East

I set an Intent to see what might lay "East". This is what happened.
Before me, manifested a table with four chairs, like in an inn/ tavern/ something. Emerald Boy, from the North, was there, with 2 friends: Starphire Blue and Dark Ruby. These names came to me because of the color of the energy aura that just visibly glows around them all the time. At the table, they began "playing" with their energy -- making balls, globes, and then using threads to make pyramids, duodecahedrons, snowflakes, and webs... it was like luminous "tinker toys" energy stuff ( don't know a better word ), like glass blowers drawing out threads and creating things... it's really hard to explain, really, but I think I have given you the idea.
They invited me to join them, but that puzzled me, as I had no clue of how that would be possible. They told me to look at myself... and there - in that place and time - I had this golden energy all around. So then I sat down with them at the table ( I had been standing, watching, amazed at what they were doing) and began trying to weave designs and make little balls of gold energy fibers and stuff. (I use the term "stuff" a lot because the words just won't translate).
Emerald said, "See, this is how you will learn East, because for your Journey, it is "illumination"... but your thoughts limit it and limit you. Illumination is the energy of Creation, of Life. It sings; it hums; it dances... it heals; it transforms; it transcends... it is you; it is me; it is all... it is river, mountain, tree and Unicorn... Learn to taste it - on the tip of your soul; learn its texture; harmonize with it; dance with it - let it lead; let it roll off your fingers like rain; let it race through your arteries; drink it; thank it; and learn you are One with it... This will keep you busy for a while."
Then he chuckled, and disappeared... the whole thing did; and I had returned from my Journey.

Gateway to East
opens to my Call-
sings Her own reply-
knows me, after all;
here my birth is honored -
destiny revealed -
surrounded by protection,
the Truth within is sealed;
and so She shows me now
what rite was done back then,
so I can know myself
and start my Quest again.

Tones of Light

Having just finished a deep relaxation exercise with appropriate music in the background, I came back just needing to debrief. (It is during the debriefing times that I tend to have some of the deepest revelations…don’t ask me why…it’s just the way I am.) In any case, I was drifting on the music and found myself on a large flat boulder – a good 6-7 feet long, 3-4 feet across, and 4-5 feet high. It was basically smooth…the kind you could nap on or at least journey, using a small rolled-up blanket for a pillow. It was near the edge of a piece of land, like a cliff but not as abrupt, overlooking a wide valley that stretched out forever full of meadows and forests. I was sitting on it -- drawing in the view as the sun began to cautiously creep over the edge of the horizon, brushing away the misty gray-blue cobwebs of early dawn. Its rays reached out to touch me, and the boulder, and all the land around me – like a gentle hug that barely wrinkles the aura. I heard tones, in the very sunbeams themselves – as if the breath of Spirit were stroking crystal glass. And I knew I could do that, too. I reached out and ran my finger down a strand of sunlight and listened. What a glorious tone! I immersed myself in this experience, this song, this learning, so far beyond where I have ever gone. I ran my fingers down different strands, different tones – all pure, all sweet, all melting my heart to tears. How incredible! Now, this isn’t to say I hadn’t thought about this kind of thing and imagined that this could be; but to experience it… wow! To have the experience given to me, revealed to me, granted me – wow! (I know there must be a better word, but I don’t know it) And then, I thought about the strands connecting all things to all things – you know, the interconnectedness of all creation, dimensions, time, etc. – and that all these strands were also tones of light (did that make sense?). I thought about the strands that weave us, as individuals, together – how we each have a tone with harmonics and such…so that, in a healing sense, I could tell when someone was out of harmony and could invite the person to re-align into harmony, even in the Fey realm and with trees and such… healing! (I’m still working on that…deep, deep water there). I could see that as a community, we would have a specific tone with harmonics. And then, all of this just got so overwhelming, I just let it drift on top of my stream to filter down into my deep waters later.

What I realized much later was that I was facing the sunrise…me. I usually love watching sunsets, not sunrises…this is not a morning person. I made the connection to the East, and illumination, and I realized that this was yet another lesson from my Faery friends. I knew that, even if I couldn’t "hear" the tone – even if the tone was from a far different spectrum than I understood—I knew I would be able to "know" if it wasn’t "pure" – if there was some disharmony. I knew this was an offering from the Shining Ones. I knew Emerald had been close by all day, but I hadn’t realized until later how much my journey had been under his tutelage.
