Before responding to your latest entry, I just want to clarify a point in my previous post about my experience with the darkness. I was not meditating nor under hypnosis, I literally collapsed in a public place and "died". It was Deb who called me back to this dimension.
I am finding it interesting that some of your experiences are bringing up memories of some of my own experiences in the past, which are kind of similar to yours. There are no accidents, so I can only conclude that your sharings are perhaps meant for me to relook at those events in my life with a newer perspective? So, thank you, I will do just that :)
Your mention of floating colors during hypnosis...for a long long time, it used to be for me that right before going to sleep, I would see very strongly in my mind's eye (3rd eye?) specific floating chakra colors. Sometimes just one color, and at other times, two colors. Mostly they would appear as ball-shaped, but at other times as a floating free-form shaped. I always perceived this as my Higher Self communicating to me to focus on that chakra color and see what it reveals to me. Now maybe this is something that is quite common, but I have to admit, you are the only one who has mentioned it.
Your brief images of a small hand, pen/pencil, pad of paper, and small cowboy boot....am curious....what comes to your mind about each? Its almost like dream interpretation, symbols for other meanings?
It reminds me of one of the most visual meditations I have ever had back in 2002 and just shortly after joining this website. Here's what I experienced :
2 images appeared before me, one after the other.
In the first, I saw appear before me on my right side a terra cotta pot with dirt, and then seeds that sprang into a little plant, kinda like those chia plants on TV. And I sensed it had berries on it, but it came and went so fast, I canít be sure.
In the second, I saw 2 arms entering from my left side and holding a medium brown stuffed bear, yes a teddy bear!! It also was placed on the right side of my vision in a kind of semi-profile. The bearís left eye as I looked at it was the most brilliant shade of light amber and beaming out of it were these glorious sparking white lights. (Now donít tell me in a previous life I was a stuffed teddy bear!!) LOL
In a nutshell, my thoughts at the time were its obvious this was not about a past life, but maybe another aspect of myself communicating clues to trigger a deeper awareness of who I Am. For instance, the pot sprouting the plant was showing me that I was growing in awareness, and very rapidly, with the berries representing the fruit of my labor. The right side is our giving side, so I perceive that as giving to myself from the fruit of my labor and sharing it with others in some way.
The teddy bear represents to me childlike, softness, and love. The left side of our body is the receiving side. The sparkles of light coming from the amber eye I interpret as enlightenment. Amber itself is a stone of cleansing and purification and spiritually represents connecting our individual energy with the Cosmic energy.
Anyway, just wanted to thank you again for your sharing. Its assisting me with my continued growth! :)
Peg, thank you so much for sharing this! What an amazing experience. How long did it last? Did you sense the experience before it happened? How did Deb "call you back"?
Certainly no accident for me, either, that I stumbled upon this community along my Path and no accident for either of us that this conversation emerged! So I thank you!
Oh boy! Wait until I tell you about the floating color I had last night when I did one of the meditation/hypnosis practices! Blew my mind. Will post after this response post to you.
The small hand, pen/pencil, pad of paper...I write a lot currently in my career as an attorney. Constantly reading and writing. And before that, English graduate school. I don't recall doing it much as a child--I assume the small hand is that of a child, but maybe this is a trigger for a prior life that is waiting to reveal itself if I go back further than my childhood in this life? If writing has been a life-long proclivity in this incarnation, I'm sure it didn't come out of the "blue moon." The boot...I don't know. I am originally from Texas (gone for decades, however) and have a penchant for the southwest, Santa Fe in particular where my teacher Tias Little is based (hey..."little"????) This is fun!
A teddy bear with a gleaming eye....what an amazing gift! If you are a writer, I encourage you to write more about that teddy bear and that eye. A wink of cosmic enlightened energy, for sure. Are you familiar with Natalie Goldberg's Writing Down the Bones? Check it out. That teddy bear is the perfect starting point for one of her writing exercises where you write in almost a trance-like meditative state to dig down to original thought. Beautiful.
The feeling is mutual. Thank you!
last night's meditation/hypnosis
Oh boy . . . things are getting wild and wooly for me . . .
Background: I know very little (practically nothing . . . okay, nothing at all) about angels, angel names, angel lore, mythology, hierarchy, meaning, history, colors, nothing.
Okay, so . . . last night, first practiced my yoga, and then settled in for a meditation/hypnosis (I say both because I don't really know how deep I am going, but it is starting to feel pretty deep). During this practice, I again saw darkness, floating colors, and heard a voice. The color I saw--very prominent and vibrant--was pink. I've never seen pink before during meditation. And it wasn't going away or mixing with other colors. It floated along what felt like the left and right sides and also right in front of me. Later in the meditation, we are to invite our Higher Self ("HS") to meet us and then ask its name. I did so, and the almost immediate name I received was "Ariel." Never thought of this name before, has no meaning to me in this conscious life. Then I have a little chat with Ariel, and I won't post all of what I heard, but this was one sentence: "You have had lives of great wanting and fighting." Probably makes complete sense that I became a lawyer in this life--much arguing ("fighting") and wanting reconciliation and protection for my client.
Immediately after the practice, I journal this in my notebook and then look up information about Ariel on the internet. Here's some of what I found: "Seeing pink light nearby may also alert you to Ariel's presence, because her energy corresponds mostly to the pink light ray in the system of angel colors . . ."
Upon reading that, my jaw dropped to the floor. When I finally managed to pick my mandible back up off the floor, I pondered further what this meant to me. I think it was first, yet again, another "confirmation" that my HS sent to me. Knowing that I am an attorney trained to question everything, trained to be skeptical and trust my head over my heart (believe me, I am work on balancing this everyday, which has helped my law practice, actually), my HS sent another confirmation--something that I could not possibly have known without knowledge from my HS or a higher source/being/etc. Second, perhaps this was communication from an Ariel entity? Could it be?
I am still stunned.
Love and light to you all,
Wow Steph, fantastic experience!
You ask if this could possibly be a communication from an Ariel entity. IMHO, due to your active inner work and intention, there is no doubt that you are connecting to your Higher Self. As far as the name Ariel, why not? After all, there are a lot of Johns and Susans, etc in the world, so why not in the non-physical realms too? It may or may not be "the Angel Ariel", but rather more importantly, I would guess that this name was given because somewhere deep in your subconscious, Ariel qualities you possess need to be recognized and surface now in your present life's journey. Pema Norpal is our resident Angel lady and I bumped up for you her last post about the Angel Ariel for Nov 8-12 in case you would like to read it in the Angels thread.
Also, here is a link with info on the color pink:
Like you, I question everything no matter the source, and I really listen and feel if the message resonates with me or not. I love the way you are connecting the dots and applying them to your daily life. You go girl !!
Will have to check out Natalie's book, thank you. Yes, I am a writer, although not professionally. I have posted several pieces here on the boards through the years.
Have a good one !
Peg's NDE through my Eyes!
Hi Norma Rae,
Peg (Sweet Pea) has asked me to jot down my remembrances of her NDE from my remembrance. Let me see....
We were sitting in a little bar in Grand Lake, CO elevation around 9000ft. We hadn't been there long and had just received the beer that we ordered and had maybe taken a sip or two when we started discussing the NDE I had back in 1994. Suddenly Sweet Pea said that she needed to go to the bathroom and got up and moved around me to the end of the bar when I saw her hesitate. I sensed something wrong and jumped up and reached for her arm just as she was beginning to fall. I pushed my thigh into her body to brace her as I held her arm, she went slowly down to the floor and was flat on her back. Because I had been able to brace her fall, she had a gentle landing.
Her eyes were wide open and vacant. I crouched down over her and put my right hand upon her upper chest. I felt no movement, no breath, just an eerie stillness. With my hand upon her chest and looking deeply into her vacant eyes I started calling her back to me. "Sweet Pea, come back to me." Over and over again, I calmly kept stating, "Sweet Pea, come back to me."
A crowd had gathered around us, when one guy asked if he should call "911". I raised my left hand in a signage of "stop" and said, "Wait, just wait!"
I then continued to call her back to me with my right hand on her chest, "Sweet Pea, come back to me, come back to me." I don't know how many minutes had passed when I felt a catch in her breath and a flickering in her eyes and her consciousness came back into her body. She opened her eyes to meet mine hovering over her. She took a minute to connect again and adjust to her surroundings and all the people surrounding us. I asked, "You okay?" "Yeaaahhhh", she said with a voice of uncertainty. "You ready to get up?" "Yeahhhhhh", she said and then asked, "What happened?"
I think it was then that I said, "I think you just left your body. Where did you go?" You said, "All I remember is darkness."
Sweet Pea has hazel eyes that change with whatever she wears, like gray, green. But that night, after that experience, they were the most crystal blue I had ever seen them. It was amazing! We stayed and had a most joyous time talking with other tourists and hometown people as well. Ahhhh, I just relived that experience. Wow, I remember thinking, "Don't you leave me up here in the mountains by myself, you better come back to me girl!" :)
Ahahahha, we have had so many special experiences and still are....
Deb, Peg . . . Reading that, I really feel I just experienced the whole journey you had myself. As if I were a fly on that barroom wall. The beer, the mountains, the transcendental experience, the local yokels, the hazel eyes. That's all me. Thank you so much for sharing. Would be a fantastic opening scene for a movie, don't you think?
Namaste from the Midwest, and thank you so much--again--for sharing with me and everyone here.
