Fullness of Being, Fullness of Life and a State of Wonderment and “Ah” at ryuc.info

“Variety of descriptions for the experience

Fullness of being
Fullness of life
A desire to engage and share life
An inner satisfaction
A state of wonderment and “Ah”

Experiencing the fullness of being

When we align with the flow of our creative life energy and act in alignment with the truth of our being there a particular type and kind of experience which we have. This feeling can also be experience in the Ultimate Accident when one accesses the Source of Creation. Exactly what we feel and how we describe it will be unique to each individual. However, there are some common characteristics. Often most of what we feel lies more in the subconscious and only an inner satisfaction with life and calmness is what remains consciousness.” Continues here : http://ryuc.info/common/creativity_perspective/fulness_of_being.htm

The Magician is about clear communications, both common and psychic, and manifesting the path of the heart with the higher use of will. It refers to both practical magic and new opportunities that may rise like out of the blue. It is about Divine timing, synchronicity and expanding the idea of what is possible as we are transcending the limitations of the old world by the higher consciousness and the new energies.

Playfulness and humor are natural inner essences of The Magician.

Monthly Symbol, August 2015: Lapis Lazuli

 

Excerpt from peacefulmind.com (read more):

“Lapis Lazuli is the stone of ancient knowledge and wisdom. Lapis resonates on a very high, harmonious level as it brings peace and deeper understanding when looking inward. It therefore, encourages inner self-knowledge, encourages self-awareness and will show you inner truth, when you really choose to look. A wonderful stone to work with for self-acceptance. It’s deep blue color is like looking deep into an ocean of possibilities providing qualities of honesty, compassion and morality to the personality seeking balance.

Lapis encourages creativity. It opens one up to self-expression, stimulating objectivity, clarity and self-realization. When used at the Throat Chakra, Lapis will help you in speaking the truth and therefore, inspires confidence. By speaking your feelings and emotions, it often allows for greater self-expression and revelation, especially when it does no harm. It helps balance the function of the thyroid gland while strengthening the neck and vocal cords.

Lapis promotes clear understanding through the power of intuition. When applied to the Third Eye Chakra, this stone helps to open up the ability for psychic attunement. Lapis makes this center more aware or responsive to our own insightful nature.”

 

Ode to August

 

Oh, beloved August,
the harvest of the year and
All the harvests of the past
are celebrating in me,

Oh, mysterious August,
after a summer of light
all the stars being back
at the night sky
are twinkling in me,

Oh, sensuous August,
all the gentle winds of
the end summer
are dancing in me,

Oh, magical August
I embrace thee
and Sirius, which
knows I remember.

Monthly Symbol, July 2015: Cornucopia

woman-404348_640

 

“The cornucopia, a curved horn with fruits and flowers spilling from its open mouth, is a common symbol of abundance and the earth’s bounty. The symbol’s origin lies in Greek mythology. Legend says that Zeus, the king of the gods, was raised by a foster mother named Amalthaea, who was either a goat or a goddess who tended a goat. Either way, she fed the infant god goat’s milk. One day one of the goat’s horns broke off. Amalthaea filled the horn with fruits and flowers and gave it to Zeus, who graciously placed it in the sky, where it became a constellation.”

From Fruit in Mythology at Myths Encyclopedia

Affirmation:  I am one with the unlimited abundance of the Universe.

Monthly Symbol, May 2015: Medicine Wheel

medicine-wheel-570101_640

Medicine Wheel is a Native American symbol that represents the harmony and peaceful interaction between all beings and the four elements of the earth.

“The Medicine Wheel, sometimes known as the Sacred Hoop, has been used by generations of various Native American tribes for health and healing. It embodies the Four Directions, as well as Father Sky, Mother Earth, and Spirit Tree—all of which symbolize dimensions of health and the cycles of life.

The Medicine Wheel can take many different forms. It can be an artwork such as artifact or painting, or it can be a physical construction on the land. Hundreds or even thousands of Medicine Wheels have been built on Native lands in North America over the last several centuries.

Movement in the Medicine Wheel and in Native American ceremonies is circular, and typically in a clockwise, or “sun-wise” direction. This helps to align with the forces of Nature, such as gravity and the rising and setting of the Sun. “

Symbol for April 2015: The Dolphin

From poweranimalsunleashed.com by Carrie Hart:

The Dolphin: Joy, Clarity, Synchronicity

The dolphin is so full of joy, he cannot help but leap into the air, just for the sheer pleasure of being alive.  Allow this vibrant life force to fill you, making you feel and know the privilege it is to be drawing one more breath in this precious life.  Let the dolphin teach you this deep abiding joy.

The dolphin is also a wonderful communicator.  He will teach you to listen to others and then to respond in a way which they will understand.  With the dolphin within you, words will flow more easily.  You will come into your own power as a communicator of both feelings and ideas, as his intelligence fills you with confidence in expressing yourself.

The dolphin is attuned to others, instinctively knowing just the right moment to leap into the air, so that the entire group moves in effortless harmony.  Let the dolphin teach you this intuitive synchronicity with others, moving at one with them and understanding what drives them and what moves them.”

Monthly Symbol, March 2015: Unity Wings (Winged Solar Disk) (post updated)

imageEgyptian Symbols, Winged Sun at http://egyptian-gods.org/egyptian-symbols-winged-sun/: “The winged sun is one of the oldest Egyptian icons and symbols that appeared as early as the Old Kingdom. It is usually a symbol of royalty, divinity and power not only in Egypt but also in the whole Near East including the countries of Mesopotamia, Persia and Anatolia. In Egypt, it is a symbol of the soul and its eternity. It is often placed in temples as a memento to the people of their eternal nature. During the Middle Kingdom, it evolved into a symbol of protection and became a popular protective amulet during the Ptolemaic Period.”

Winged Sun:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winged_sun

Example of modern symbolic use: The Unity wings symbol / the winged globe explained 1956 by Charles Fillmore, co-founder of Unity at http://www.unitync.net/Wings.html:

“It is an ancient Egyptian symbol, but it is found in various forms in the religions of other races. It represents the relation existing between Spirit, soul, and body. Soul gives wings to body. Spirit is the enveloping principle, like the atmosphere in which both soul and body exist, and from which they draw their original inspiration. ”

“As man develops spiritual consciousness, he attains the realization of the soul as the wings of the body. Back of the Soul is Spirit, which quickens and energizes the soul; that is, gives the soul wings.”

The Magic of Merging with the Soul

In silence
my soul collects
the parts of
my personality
into a wholeness,
where they
automatically
exist as
a harmonious
team
in balance,
in wisdom,
in unison and joy.
No push,
no pull,
no inner strife,
just peace
and ease.

I am sensing
the connectedness
of everything
and everyone.
The past
and the
future
readjust.
The paradigm
shifts.

What´s
beyond
the stars
is in
here.

Monthly Symbol, February 2015: Gordian Knot Solved

Gordian Knot

“In Greek and Roman mythology, the Gordian knot was an extremely complicated knot tied by Gordius, the king of Phrygia in Asia Minor*. Located in the city of Gordium, the knot came to symbolize a difficult problem that was almost impossible to solve.

According to legend, Gordius was a peasant who married the fertility goddess Cybele. When Gordius became king of Phrygia, he dedicated his chariot to Zeus* and fastened it to a pole with the Gordian knot. Although the knot was supposedly impossible to unravel, an oracle predicted that it would be untied by the future king of Asia.

Many individuals came to Gordium to try to undo the knot, but they all failed. Then, according to tradition, the Greek conqueror Alexander the Great visited the city in 333 B . C . After searching unsuccessfully for the hidden ends of the Gordian knot, Alexander became impatient. In an unexpected move, he took out his sword and cut through the knot. Alexander then went on to conquer Asia, thus fulfilling the oracle’s prophecy. Alexander’s solution to the problem led to the saying, “cutting the Gordian knot,” which means solving a complicated problem through bold action.” From: Gordian Knot / mythencyclopedia.com  http://www.mythencyclopedia.com/Fi-Go/Gordian-Knot.html

A few of my personal, subjective adaptations of Gordian knot solved:

♦ instant, positive manifestation (spiritual, mental, emotional and/or physical healing, growth or solution, a shift in a relationship issue, a sudden shift in consciousness, or a material manifestation, and so on).  An issue solved immediately by using  “the sword” of higher truth. Affirmation: “Any situation can change for the better at any now moment.”
♦ energy work (working with/transmitting higher energies) especially Ray 1 (Will to Initiate by Sanaya Roman)
♦ soul, spirit in action (vs ego)
♦ missing piece falling into its place (saw an image of that recently during my energy meditation)

The Torus Tube contains many mathematical formulas and equations. Science began using this model as a geometric\mathematical model of the universe.” Read more here http://wholejoy.com/jewelry/gordian-knot.html (link corrected)

The Gordian knot can be used as a symbol to solve problems in life through unity and oneness with the world around us.

Monthly Symbol: Flower of Life and Merkaba for January 2015

The Flower of Life is a powerful symbol of creating new. It symbolizes new life even referring to the DNA-strand.

“The Flower of Life is the name that gives to a geometrical figure composed of multiple evenly-spaced, overlapping circles. This figure forms a flower-like pattern with the symmetrical structure of a hexagon.

Drunvalo Melchizedek has called these figures symbols of sacred geometry, asserting that they represent ancient spiritual beliefs, and that they depict fundamental aspects of space and time. Melchizedek claims that Metatron’s Cube may be derived from the Flower of Life pattern, and that the Platonic solids within it were “thought to act as a template from which all life springs”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flower_of_Life

Leonardo_da_Vinci_-_Codex_Atlanticus_folio_309v_detail1

Merkaba: “History has talked about the Mer-Ka-Ba mostly as the vehicle that allows a person to ascend or descend into the higher or lower worlds. But actually the Mer-Ka-Ba is much more than just a vehicle of ascension. It can be, really, anything — since it is the primal pattern that created all things and all universes, both visible and invisible (see The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life, volumes I & II).

In Ancient Egypt, this primal pattern was called the Mer-Ka-Ba. It was merkabaactually three words, not one. Mer meant a kind of light that rotated within itself. Ka meant spirit, in this case referring to the human spirit. And Ba meant the human body — though it also could mean the concept of Reality that spirit holds. And so the entire word in ancient Egypt referred to a rotating light that would take the spirit and the body from one world into another.”  You can read more here: http://www.spiritofmaat.com/archive/sep2/merkaba.htm

Wishing everyone the best of energies for the New Year!
