Tiny spots of a greater, much larger picture,
A matrix of sanctity,
It’s this interconnectedness,
The nourishing interconnectedness of all things,
Soft whispers tell you this in the breeze,
Don’t feel alone, it says - you’re not,
It’s no coincidence you are here,
We are more or less the same you & I,
Connecting with each other even we are seemingly not,
We can even meet in dreams.
You find yourself shifting to an alternate plane -
You are at a field with a few bushes, yet
Mostly quite open & desolate,
Walk into the field and
in the distance
You will see a large tree burn -
It’s branches alight in flame,
Walk towards it, but not too close,
Then suddenly the fire stops and the branches transform
manifesting the most magnificent flowers-
Violet coloured with a golden inner hue,
Don’t touch these particular ones yet.
Just observe these and how they make you feel?
Then begin to feel their force,
Shut your eyes,
And imagine holding the flowers’
power in your hand
(as you naturally follow your breath..)
A surge of energy erupts from your midsection,
Towards the top of your head,
Your shoulders begin to relax &
Your fingertips feel as light as feathers, before a
translucent golden light miraculously
shoots out from each of your fingertips,
Into the atmosphere surrounding you,
You feel warm, relaxed and safe,
Explore how this makes you feel for a moment..
Next, hold your palms to you Heart Space,
Or a pain you might feel in your body,
Try it for a few minutes and keep your palms at the spot,
Breathe deeply & imagine the golden light
coursing from your fingertips,
Allow it to Seep
into this part of your body,
Relax & give thanks and
See how you feel after..
Are we able to integrate these energetic powers
into helping and healing others? -
I don’t yet know, but that would be my wish,
Our journey is just getting started…
Quick note: This piece was inspired by a number of things, including some experiences I’ve had in group meditations that I attend, as well as our gifted & inspirational meditation teacher. ☺️
I’ve also been inspired by Paul Stewart’s warm and encouraging meditation-style poems & free verse poetry here on Vocal - as well as Kristen Balyeat’s joyous and thrilling, meditative poems on topics such as the natural world and our place in it etc. Both writers (I believe) have said they often use ‘stream of consciousness’ to write, where the ideas and words just flow forth. I have tried this a few times when inspiration strikes, so this is my attempt at that process (I hope) with a bit of my own flavour. 😊 You can check out a couple of their swell pieces below.
