Opening of Heart with Rose

This is a continuation of a series of experiential journeys I am sharing.  My goal is to share what it is like to explore your inner world through the dream-like state of shamanic journeying.  And perhaps the wisdom that is uncovered will have merit for you as well.

As I begin the journey process through deep, rhythmic breathing, opening the screen of my mind, my awareness rises up and I find myself surrounded by a pink mist… soft and somewhat moist, yet warm and comforting.  I can see Thoth’s outline and sense his presence 4-5 feet to my left.

As the mist begins to dissipate, there in front of me is a deep red rose on a single stem. The colour would oscillate from red to white and back again… and I just allowed it to be as it was… until the colour settled on being red/

As I relaxed further and allowed the journey to unfold, the rose petals opened and I felt rather detached from this rose.

I felt what seemed like a chiropractic adjustment and then in an instant, I was surrounded by incredible energy and light that seemed to be alive with emotion and vitality.  And then I was in a different place. I no longer had a human form.

The sun was shining; its warmth radiating on me and through me.  There was no breeze, only an eternal stillness… tuning into the hum of the universe… that became louder and closer… until a bee landed on the open flower of my face.

I could feel it walking all over my face – this rather large bee – looking for the right angle to collect the treasure it was seeking.  This bee carried a message for me.

 

“Your sustenance is woven into every aspect of life.

The very fabric of life surrounds you.

Rejoice.”  

 

This message felt alive. I could feel the vibration of its essence echo through me until I was called to flow down into my roots.

Yet I was a cut flower.

But with the magic of the mind, I quickly transformed into a rose bush and followed the roots into the earth which sustained me.

I asked Thoth how I can access the universal energy and sustenance that is all around me.

He told me I could focus on the air as I breathed, feeling its inherent life force. I could taste the life energy in the food and water I consumed. There are many ways…

He said that most often humans’ mask the vibrant energy of the Universe that surrounds them, going though life in a daze… dull and detached.  Yet we are part of it.

Thoth told me that if I want to connect with it, all I have to do is open my senses.

 

“It is easy to become aware.”

 

As I transformed back to my human form, bringing this beautiful rose inside my heart, I returned with an open heart and heightened senses of feeling, hearing and smelling. The rose had gifted me.
