The Gem In I

Golden - Source Unknown

Radiant Heart – Source Unknown

In early March, on the day of the Virgo Full Moon, I joined in a global meditation, focusing on the Aquarian Ascension Pool. The guidance was simply to meditate for thirty minutes, at some point, that day, focusing on the Pool, which has been meditated upon and enriched by the energies of many beings and spiritual masters over time.

Now that the Sun is in Gemini, I have been reminded of my experience of this meditation and was inspired to share it. Mercury, currently retrograde in Gemini, sheds fresh light on information and communication previously given and received.

These are notes from my inner journey to the heart of my Gemini self. Maybe you know this place, too.

And so it began…

Placing my attention on my heart beat, I realized the Intention is Love.

Yes.

It was so peaceful to sit in silence. I tapped into the pool and saw that the water was clear and dark. There were colors glistening from it in deep reds and golds.

I saw what looked like a rising or setting sun on the far side, in the distance. I said, “I will add some sparkle.”

“Yes, you were always good at that,” said a voice, warm and welcoming.

I had a sense of a diamond in my heart and heard, “Shine bright like a diamond!” from the song by Katy Perry.

Then the voice said, “Well, come home. Welcome home.”

I felt at home. I felt my being say, “I’m back.” I recognized my strength and sense of purpose for being.

Then the voice, again. “You’re a gem.”

And I thought, well, I am a Gemini. Then the realization: There is a Gem-In-I!

Back to my pulse, the rhythm began to rock my body. This is me. I know this place. I recognize myself. I felt my Higher Self present. I felt connected and whole and holy.

This is what I have been missing. This connection, this eternal sense of belonging, of intrinsic preciousness embodied.

And Love. Love woven in and around and through.

I saw myself radiating beams of Light out from my heart, in every direction. And I saw the beams of Light radiating through every cell of my body being. Radiant beams of Love. Transmitting the energy of Life for all, Including me. Once and for all.

I closed my meditation in gratitude and appreciation for the profound experience of holiness.

Shine bright like a diamond!

Diving Lessons

Dive deep into the darkness
Beyond the dark
To the light
Where everything
You see
Is clear
And clean
And bright

Here you find your Self
Waiting
Unscathed and serene
Flawless
Unique
And brilliant
At peace with what has been

Ready to claim the life
You couldn’t imagine
Or dream
‘Til you moved through
The sacred darkness
To the place
Where awareness gleams
