March 5, 2018: Crystal Bowl Reiki Meditation, Circle of Life
I had a difficult time trying to get settled into a comfortable position before the meditation began. I had a blanket to cover me, but it kept getting tangled. My pillow didn’t feel right. I realized that a frenetic, chaotic energy engulfed the room like debris flying in a hurricane. On one level, I thought that shouldn’t be—the lights were dimmed and soft background music was playing—but I could not deny it; the energy was palpable.
Like myself, these energies were seeking a niche. In my mind’s eye, I saw a large black cat, a jaguar, begin to circle the room in a clockwise motion. It picked up speed until it became a blur of black smoke. As it continued to loop the room’s perimeter, it swept the chaotic energies into its path, giving them form. From chaos, pattern and symmetry was born.
I heard that this represented the Circle of Life. Life begins from chaos until a pattern is established. Now there is unity. Now there is wholeness. Sacred are these elements of life as they come together for a greater purpose—a purpose of manifestation.
I saw a vision of dried leaves scattered on the ground. A whirlwind came and picked up the leaves, giving them form and purpose. The leaves swirled off the ground in a vortex of invisible energy—the wind. As the wind continued, more and more leaves were pulled into this portal of energy. The result was a pattern, a vortex giving purpose to the seemingly random.
We are like the jaguar. Our intentions add a layer of organization and pattern to the seemingly random chaos.
Be ye like the leaf. Go in the direction you are called and you will find purpose in life. It is the organizing principle of intention of healing.
As Reiki practitioner Linda moved from me to Maria (the next participant), her back was to me. I felt a swoosh as my energy moved to her. It gave her an additional boost which then added healing for Maria. The feeling was so visceral and real that I almost grabbed the sides of the recliner I was in so my body would not fall off.
I realized I was witnessing the same pattern that the jaguar had established: a clockwise whirlwind that passed from one person to the next until it blended into unity. I knew that this same energy.
I looked up and saw Zed, the person on my other side. While lying on his back, his hands were raised and he moved them in rapid clockwise circles. His actions validated my experiences: clockwise energy swirling around the room, magnifying the healing for all participants.
We are all one. It is the power of the healing circle. It is the energy of Mother/Sister Jaguar protecting our medicine space, making us whole.
I gave my thanks for the ability to see such beautiful healing manifestations that took place.~Candie
