Red Overtone Earth
Tone 5: Overtone - Center & Core Purpose
Red Earth is your Conscious Self - who you are and who you are becoming.
Red Earth is the access point to your natural alignment
with Earth force. It is the unis mundi, the point of perfect
centeredness in the eternal present from which all alignment and magic
manifest. Your center, the Earth center, is the secret of gravity's
magnetizing force. Red Earth is the channel of harmonic synchronization
that is aligned with the galactic heart. From the center point within
eslf, you align with this galactic center and connect through your own
crystalline structure to the larger crystal grid network. To keep this
channel of synchronization open, connect to the elemental energies of
earth, air, fire and water, and the seven directional guardians.
Sit in simple relationship to the Earth, like a poet enraptured
in a forest. Be rooted where you are now. Out of synergistic centeredness,
you will receive your greatest desires and open to the full flowering
of the mystic power of the universe. This synchronization can be seen
as the alignment of your personal myth with the greater myth of our
times. Myth is the framework or "story" in which the truth
of the cosmos is revealed in symbolic form. Utilize it to catalyze your
Take off your shoes. Touch the one Earth. Find a place
to dance with the sacred hoop of life. Contribute your vision as an
awakened member of the global rainbow family!
Red Serpent is your Higher Self & Guide.
"I am the flint and tinder of the sacred fire,"
reads the meditation for Red Serpent. In the Great Mystery, flint and
tinder represent the instinctive combustion that initiates movement
in the physical body toward union with Spirit. When flint and tinder
are brought together, the spark of divinity awakens and ignites the
fire of your essence. Red Serpent invites the purifying spark of the
sacred fire, the kundalini, to align and integrate your body, mind and
spirit. Red Serpent can help you uncover apparent blockages in specific
chakras to clear an align them. If you are working on a process of purification,
invite Red Serpent to assist you.
This Mayan medicine can remove toxins,
rejuvenate and transform dis-ease. Red Serpent is also known by
the Maya as the kultanlilni, or kundalini, the energy that moves up
from the base of the spine and out through the crown chakra. There are
two aspects of this force, the ida and the pingala, representing its
male and female polarities. One of the ancient secrets of Red Serpent
is the activation of higher states of consciousness through balancing
these two polarities so that they dance within us as one. Another metaphor
for this serpent energy comes from the Mayan words luk umen tun ben
can, or "those absorbed by the serpent of the sacred knowledge."
When the seven chakras are fully activated, one experiences an enlightened
Use the body as a tool for transformation. Learn how to use passion and the senses as a means of access and alignment to higher consciousness. Follow your gut-level intuitions and instincts to make choices in the moment.
Be willing to look at issues you have concerning intimacy
and sexuality. Make sure that you are not separated from the dance of
passion that is in union with your divine nature. Sense your deeper
desire for union and intimacy. Red Serpent calls on you to awaken your
vitality, body wisdom, and passion for life.
In the shadow of Blue Hand are spiritual distractions and resistances. As you hit 'growth edges', you can experience issues and resistance to revealing your true beauty and power. On your path, you will always be offered access to tools and further initiations. Think back to a time when you were offered such a gift, to a time when you embarked on a new quest or possibility. Remember the feeling of spiritual grace that accompanied that gift. Watch for other such openings that will be offered. They may appear in unusual circumstances. You may even find them in times of emotional crisis and amidst unusual access to hidden potentials. Becoming aware of these initiatory portals opens the door to guides and allies. It can also break the spell of distractions and reactive behaviours.
Another shadow of Blue Hand is difficulty in completing things. Completion is especially difficult if you feel inadequate or displeased with the possible outcome of your efforts. If you take on too much, you may become too pressured and scattered to finish. You may also relish the creative process but lose motivation because of hidden issues or what appears as the hard work required to finish. Completion becomes easier if you allow yourself to be excited and satisfied by the steps along the way.
Another shadow of Blue Hand is not having the desire and discipline needed to master a tool (such as meditation, healing, or some aspect of the creative arts). It is important to remember that committment, focused intent, and openness are all necessary to the acquisitions of any new skill.
A related shadow of Blue Hand is in believing that the
tool has the power. However, tools are simply vehicles for your connection
with the Divine. Do you think your ability to access information using
such things as tarot cards and astrology charts come from the symbols
or system? The tool simply provides a means for you to focus, to open
to the truth being revealed through the metaphor. If you are overidentified
and attached to your tools - books, crystals, symbols, systems and so
on - you may believe the power is outside yourself. Open to the clarity
of your mystical nature. You are the tool through which Spirit
speaks. You are the open vessel in which the light can play.
White Wind is the galactic wind, the catalyzing current,
the Spirit that moves through all things. It is the divine breath that
gives life to all creation, the unseen essence of solar energy. White
Wind is the breath of inspiration, the fertilizing force of the wind.
Its essence is the movement of Spirit as it penetrates into form to
enliven, purify and inspire.
The Maya had a special relationship to Venus because of its "unified polarity," seen in the ability to transform itself from the morning star to the evening star. As we unite our polarities (which can be seen as our male and female aspects), we mirror the divine feminine and masculine aspects that are presently uniting in order to birth the consciousness of the divine child within us. This unification is a state of wholeness that frees and enhances, permeating our beings on all levels.
Getting in touch with your male and female aspects and
how you perceive them is an integral part of the alchemical process
that brings them harmony. You can begin the process of integrating polarities
through an increased understanding of the awareness in both sides of
your body. The right side generally represents the male, the left side,
the female. In meditation, observe the qualities of each side. Bring
out their issues, fears, strengths, and potentials. Feel them. Move
with them. Talk to them. Create and draw images. Make sounds. Write
about them. Explore their relationships. Then, taking as much time as
you need, allow them to flow together, unified in solar androgyny. Freeing
past perceptions, claim harmony, healing, and love, and bring that new
sense of unity into the present moment.
Core purpose, central intent, foundation, place of centeredness, simplicity, acceptance of your humanness.
Five is the ray of center, the first bar, the foundation of humanity in the individual self. Step into the center of your crystalline core. What do you find there? What is your foundation, your core purpose, your central intent, your individual vision? Use this vision as an access to the truth at your stellar core. See yourself as an ever-expanding hub of truth and light.
You are the center of your own universe! Remember that there is great wisdom to be found within the human form. In genuine acceptance of your humanness, you find your foundation in individual self. Turn inward and bring more light into your form. Discover the foundation of your sacred center. In meditation, receive the serenity of the unis mundi, the place of perfect centeredness. In letting go of who you think you are, you become who you actually are. Be simple. You are always sitting in the center. You are the Zen master, centered in beginner's mind.
