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

  2. First congratulations upon your 200th post Well done.. I smile as you are seeing Green, while I am seeing Blue.. the vivid blue of your Photo of Kirlian photography is an almost exact match.. Now I am relaxing more I am able to spend time in meditation.. Your experience sounds as if you too have been achieving deeper ones..
    I have no doubts as you allow the flow you give power to what ever you wish to create within your projections of thought .. And I am most certain all will come into fruition as those thoughts become Action..
    Blessings sent your way Linda.. Hugs Sue xox

    1. Hi Sue,
      Very interesting to learn that you see blue. Often in group meditation I have found that many are hesitant to describe their experiences. I like sharing the info so there is some access to improving understanding. I am slowly returning to a daily practice. I function better when I do. Thanks for your encouragement now and always. xx Linda

  3. Dear Linda,
    Congratulations on 200 posts and also on the meditation experience. I remember encountering the green dots years ago when I was keeping a regular meditation practice. At the time, I had no idea of their significance. Now days I think of the Sufi Green man, and the electrifying power of green exploding into life as a transformative power that brings new or renewed life.

    Much love,
    Debra

    1. thanks Deb. I am not familiar with the Sufi Green man. Please reread my post when time permits because I published the wrong version. I added more content and links. Thought of you today when I saw a thick Hillman book at Barnes and Nobles 🙂

  4. Dear Linda Litebeing,
    Congratulations on your 200th post, and may there be many more to come!

    It’s so interesting to read about your take on power…I used to think that power came from the solar plexus…but after listening to my sister’s thoughts…and sort of contemplating about it, now I feel that the heart holds the power. The heart is the centre of love and all of creation is borne from love…

    I also loved the idea that power is the ability to influence..because that really is a powerful talent!

    1. Dear Shree,
      Please reread my post when time permits because I published the wrong version. I added more content and links. I am still learning about power but I think influence is at the root. Happy my ideas resonate with you. I am not saying that I am incredibly powerful, but that we all have the potential to be.

  5. Congratulations Linda my dearest WP Girl & the lite power! What a great post to celebrate all 200. I also pondered on the creative power, especially since the dragon showed up… And I started relating it to freedom from the past bindings and freedom of expression. I guess that influence is the next step. You must be one step ahead Linda 😉 lovin your green lite ❤ xox

  6. Hi Linda,
    Your contemplations are interesting. Thank you for sharing about your meditation experiences.

    My experience with Mars in Scorpio is that the energy wants to engage and get into the deep stuff, the urge for intimacy. During this transit of Mars in Scorpio I was resisting because the Saturn was cojoining Mars – interesting, huh? My natal Saturn is in Virgo so naturally I wanted to tune into my body very closely and prepare for the start of school, get really grounded. I’m glad I did.

    Congratulations on 200 posts!! I think it’s really awesome how you ‘show up’ and share and allow yourself to be inspired and influenced – meanwhile you are influencing all of us in a truly big way. ❤ 😀

    Tonight I saw tinkerbell in a movie I was watching to give my brain a break from studying and thinking, expressing… and other types of 'doing and striving' activities. Your fairy picture made me think of Tink, a beautiful green fairy.

    Heartmath says that the heart's electromagnetic field is further reaching than the brain's. So your connections between power, influence, and the heart (green chakra) really cojoin.

    Happy celebrating
    With love,
    Ka

    1. Hi Ka,
      Very happy to see you here and thank you for the warm wishes. Please reread my post when time permits because I published the wrong version. I added more content and links. I agree that Saturn hs caused some major interference. I typically relish Mars in Scorp, but I feel Saturn more than anything. Fortunately it has done its work on me and is beginning to head on out towards my MC. So Tinkerbell is green, tres cool! Glad heartmath is validating my hunches here. I just think ( or feel) that my heart is much wiser than my brain.

      Love to you Aquarius rising sister,
      Linda

      1. Thank you for re-reading. I published my post late at night and WP was acting funky..

        The new header for this post was taken from wikipedia under psychedelia. I chose it because it mimics some of what I see often ( in a less dramatic way) while meditating. xo

    1. Hey Aleya,
      Before I begin my formal commentary, are you on the East Coast or the West? Anyways, we did begin around the same time but lately I have been home more so I can write more frequently. 🙂 Please reread my post when time permits because I published the wrong version. I added more content and links. Thank you for your kind words, they mean a great deal to me. We are on similar paths it seems and we can learn from one another.
