What does it mean to awaken? It is an expression to make active, to become conscious or to become aware of something. To awaken is to connect to the spiritual embryo, and spark the passion of desire in the pursuit of the development of talents as well as cultivate our potential. Awakening Mist carries the intention to connect with Amaterasu, the Japanese goddess of the sun. In one version of the Japanese mythology, Amaterasu retreated into a cave following a dispute with her brother. The world was cast in darkness and evil spirits ran riot over the earth. The gods all tried to persuade Amaterasu to leave the cave but to no avail. It was only when the gods set roosters outside the cave and made much music that she peaked out with curiosity. The gods had also decorated the surrounding trees with jewels and a mirror. Upon opening the blocked cave just enough to see what all the celebrations were about, she was blinded by her own radiance and beauty in the mirror. That is when she had an awakening, the realization that the greatest gift that she could give humanity in order to relieve suffering and darkness would be to bestow a light within the heart. A light which has the ability to radiate its brilliance and to flow with life. Empowering all to be like the one who makes the heavens shine! So how does one nurture their inner light and live full potential? How does one awaken consciousness? Creative exercise is an excellent tool to deepen one’s connection to the soul. It is not about being an artist, it is about empowerment. It is not about creating a work of art, it is about expressing oneself. It is about carving a space in which you give yourself time to work through an emotion, or a suffering in order to shift your perspective and see the opportunity in which to learn and expand awareness. Using Amaterasu - Awakening mist serves as a bridge from the emotional body to the creativity centre (or the second chakra), as well as creating the link from the creativity centre to the mental body via the passage of the heart.
The Three Treasures are the metaphysical points within our body that serve to remind us of our sacredness. Cultivating the Three Treasures is seen as an act of refinement such as refining vitality into energy, refining energy into spirit and refining spirit into space. The Three Treasures also represent the three steps in recognizing your path. 1st step in recognizing your path is allowing mystery to present and being able to respond to it. Opening up to the I AM. (what was just done with the beautiful SO HUM meditation) You are always you, nothing less and nothing more. Allowing mystery means to give up control. It means knowing you simply can be responsive to all the things that seem to come up randomly and that these in itself are the deeper revelations of knowing. It is TRUST. 2nd step is to see the signposts, your world, your experiences the people in you life and how you choose to respond within the co-creation of your reality become the signposts, the markers of your path. Your path is always unfolding before you. 3rd step is to have confidence and pure motivation. Confidence is the result of your capacity to trust. You cannot hold back, in the hopes of building more confidence. You cannot hold back from stepping onto your path once it is revealed in some way to you. Holding back is an indication that you are attempting to examine and rate your abilities. It is usually based upon fear. Instead, let your confidence be driven by pure intention, pure motivation, compassion, heart centred purity. Then your steps benefit you and others. Know that your motivations are sincere. Stay connected with your heart and trust.
