Hot. Fiery lava, swirling as in a cauldron, liquid fire enveloping, encapsulating the body. First the feet. Then the legs. The pelvis. Beginning to harden as it cools from bottom, encasing in stone as it makes its way up… moving upward to the belly, the chest and heart… it feels suffocating and restrictive. Up the fingers, hands, arms.. Encasing the neck, then lips so you cannot speak with words. Covering the nose, so you cannot take a breath. Then the eyes so you cannot see. Then the top of the head, fully crystallizing the whole of the body – casting it in stone.
Stone people… forgotten, underground… thousands of souls captured inside, hardened in this stone, rock, rock people. So many unseen. Until now. They are every woman… every man… all people.
The hardening of the world in a stone cast, a shell, an earthen egg.
Such is this reverse development process, moving back into the golden yolk – the originating essence. The golden essence that is multiuniversal potential… embryonic, back to the beginning again to the elixir of life.
With this egg, we heal. Sing, chant, allow the egg to capture your fears, pains, untruths, purgings, density that is unfitting for you…
The essence of the egg is to bring back to mystery for healing and clearing.
Restore the truth, light, life force.
Oneness. Om. Ohm. Ω. O.
Process is underway and indiscriminate. The golden yolk is the sweet nectar of life providing nourishment and restoration, and the alchemical force that transmutes and transforms.
La Limpia ya empezó.
I have a confession. Writing the reflections is my least favorite part of the reading process I believe it’s because the imagery, symbols, storytelling, metaphor – they are a language that cannot fully be translated, I can never do it justice. Not to mention how dense and potent they can often be – it would take me pages to reflect upon it all (and hours of research)! My hope is that you tune into your own meaning and reflection, through imagination and impression.
Having said all that, I acknowledge some words of context may be helpful… my recommendation is to sit with the reading and imagery first – much like an oracle card, then once you have tuned into what it means for you, take a look at the reflections for additional input.
The state of the world is… well… shit shows everywhere, yes? External, internal… there’s no doubt we are unearthing hidden (but not so hidden) “truths.” The process can feel suffocating and yet freeing. Painful and yet transformative. Fiery, active, nonlinear, spiraling movement and yet parallelizing.
The stone people reminded me of the Terracotta Army – soldier-and-horse funerary statues depicting the armies of the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang. More than 8,000 statue soldiers and cavalry were carved and buried with the Emperor as a form of funerary art – protecting him in the afterlife. With every cycle and shedding, there is a death – and afterlife. Give thought to what you desire in your afterlife – how can you honor your life and spirit after this current cycle (whatever that may be for you) ends?
Om – sacred sound and symbol… the soul and self… universal truth, the all and everything… mystic syllable and vibration that carries all. The Word of God.
Ohm – the measurement of power as a function of resistance. Resist… resist…
Ω – 24th and last letter in Greek alphabet, literally meaning “great O”… the extreme, the final part, the end.
Oneness. We are re-membering our Oneness (which has only been forgotten in our minds).
O – The sacred circle. Totality, original perfection, infinite, cyclic, whole, perfection, self, God.
La Limpia – egg cleansing.
This is an ancient form of shamanic healing practiced in Mesoamerica by curanderos (healers). In the cleansing, the raw egg is run over the person’s body by the healer to release stuck, stagnant, and negative energies as the egg acts like a sponge. In relationship with nature and guided by spirit and intuition, the healer utilizes the properties of the egg to heal, open and bring individuals back to balance. This process is powerful and effective, yet not a panacea and requires multiple sessions for stronger effect – each time, the healee is able to increase and sustain their transformation and ability to maintain a higher vibrational state. In this same way, we – our world – will require a continual process and cycle of healing. Yet with each round – given that we honor and effect change within our lives and systems to maintain these positive shifts – we will be able to maintain the highest vision we have for ourselves and the world.
