Is it the answers you seek
Or the tasks undertaken
That are prevalent upon the mind?
Are nights sleepless due to worry
Or stress of any kind?
Are days filled with dread?
Horror at the thought
Of walking out into the world
Behaving how you ought?
Do you see beauty in every little thing?
Raindrops on petals…
When a bird sings…
A clear blue sky is all that it takes
To open the mind, release the mistakes
Cast upon the wind the weight of the mind
Release the worries, relax and unwind.
On a day full of rain
Stop and refresh
Cleanse the mind
Of darkness and stress.
When winds start to blow
In softness or strength,
Just know the energy within
Is within you also.
That energy is free
Free like a bird
And so is your mind
Or haven’t you heard?

Soar into the skies
Lift up and be free
Everything starts now
That’s EVERYthing, see?

Open.
Release.
Forgive yourself.
Be free.

These are the words that Indigo gave me.

I went on a guided meditation this evening, to find my Spirit Guide. I went to my Place of Peace and Tranquility, and saw snippets of it, but not the whole thing. I saw Spirits of the Wind playing and chasing each other, laughing as they passed me. I saw many eyes looking a me, and a lion’s paw ushered me to look over to some steps, which were lit from just around a corner. As I walked over to these steps, I noticed the colour indigo flowing around me. It too was pointing me in that direction. I must point out that at this point of the meditation, I was to ask my Guide to come forth and ask for his or her name. My Guide wasn’t visible anywhere, and no name was mentioned to me.

I walked toward the steps, and a lot of strange-looking people, maybe elves although I’m not sure, started jumping out and skipping around the bushes. Not in a frightening way, as they were all smiling at me as I passed them, but they soon vanished back into the greenery or shadows.

As I stepped upon the first step, the meditation was coming to a close. The gentle voice was counting upwards to 5 and I was being brought back into reality. I felt very relaxed, even though I hadn’t found my Guide or received any guidance or asked any questions.

I started to play some relaxing music, and wrote the above rhyme. It’s a bit jumpy, I just went with the flow and wrote the words that came to me.

I researched Indigo, which I found symbolically represents the Sixth Chakra (Ajna) which is said to include the third eye. The chakra is related to intuition and gnosis (spiritual knowledge). This I never knew until writing this.

The meditation was one to communicate with the Spirit Guide through opening the third eye.

The photo is one I took earlier today on my new mobile phone.

The first step. Now, I wonder what that represents?

  1. I pray you aren’t serious about this trip. It is a big deception if you are.

    1. Yes, I went on the journey, and described what I think I saw in the post. It was relaxing and fun. And sometimes, after a stressful day this kind of deception is quite welcome.

    1. Thanks, Cobs, I’m pleased you enjoyed it.
      Never have I done yoga… I can’t even stand up properly at times, never mind bending into all of those unnatural positions! How that is relaxing is beyond me!
      Do you yoga, Cobs?

      1. Yes, Pranayama yoga.
        You have to remember with Yoga that it’s not a contest. You don’t have to match someone else who maybe doing it ‘better’ (in your opinion). You do only as much as you can do comfortably. Never push yourself, and as for that ‘breath through the pain’ – that’s total bull. You should never experience any pain. If you are, then you’re not doing it correctly.

        Pranayama is very relaxing and very mind calming. I highly recommend it.

        1. Cobs, your comment here sounds just like what I’ve written to you about my comparing my painting to others in that other post.
          I do need to calm my mind, so I shall check Pranayama out.
