My 200th Post ~ Power in Action

200 posts!

 

WordPress tells me that this will be my 200th post and I am astonished! It is worthy of a celebration. So I say let’s celebrate the power of creation. While Mars is still in Scorpio, power seems to be a timely topic.

I have often contemplated the true meaning of power and the best definition I have is

 to influence

 

I have given this a tremendous deal of thought and I stand by it for now. I could tell you what I used to associate with power, but I rather not. I am satisfied with my present definition and I think it is helpful as we continue to organize ourselves more as a collective force on this planet.

So now what? Well, the collective will stems from the projections of each individual. OK. So this particular individual meditated tonight and happily got into the flow. Lately I have been noticing and focusing on small but primary green dots while meditating. This practice has been very helpful in keeping me centered and attentive. Tonight I used a ” bonus” meditation from Deepak Chopra and Oprah that arrived in my email today. The theme was power as an element in accessing the flow of life. I found the mantra particularly helpful and I would share it here if it was given in written form.

I was curious to see how the color green comes into play. I did some research and discovered that the color green is associated with the heart chakra. In tonight’s meditation we were attending to the third chakra. This is contained within the solar plexus. The heart chakra is not the seat of power, but it is where creativity reigns. ( Leo reference, yes!)  So perhaps for myself, creative energy leads to power.

While I paid attention to my breath and the mantra, the green dot began to transform before my eyes.  I was watching a movie in my head with my inner eyes and it was peaceful and organic. I saw many flying gentle creatures. They remind me of hypnagogia – visual hallucinations that occur prior to falling asleep.

This image was taken with Kirlian photography. It is freaky how close this resembles what I actually saw. These images conjured up the notion of power in action.

 

What is also curious is that recently I have had dreams on two separate occasions that featured this bright green hue. I wonder how my meditation is influencing my dream life ??

When I reflect on my writing over time, I realize that I receive inspiration from so many sources. Often the impact of other writers is minimized. I want to pay homage to those who have empowered me to write honestly and fearlessly. Some examples include Jung, John Weir Perry, Marianne Williamson, Rumi, Michael Lutin, Edie Weinstein , Jen Elam , Robert Graham, Marcelle Martin , and so many of my blogger community here at WordPress. It is exhilarating to let go of competitive urges ( Mars in Scorpio) and rather give credit to those who enter our orbit. That reminds me of another influence, Pharrell. He speaks often about how the numerous people who supported him and positively influenced him play a major role in his creative artistry and ultimate success.

Inspiration is limitless and I wonder if power is also limitlessly available to human beings? I am not certain, but I will continue to follow the lite in whatever form it takes and see where it leads me.

NAMASTE
