It's Friday, June 18, 2021. Today is an '11' (Master Number) day, numerologically (Have you been allowing flow? Making peace? Shining your light?) and a 'root' day, biodynamically. Potato salad, anyone?
This morning, before I started in on my To-Do List, I relistened to my session with Allison.
Immediately, I went back to the sensation of being a gas...a colorful, light, moving cloud of consciousness. It was heavenly!
Reliving the entrance/experience of moving all of the light into form was the challenge; density and physicality (darkness, even) is simply this compacted, consolidated light.
Isn't it interesting, too, that our language reflects that?
"Ethereal (adj.): formerly also etherial, 1510s, "of the highest regions of the atmosphere," from ether + -ial; extended sense of "light, airy" is from 1590s."
And then: "essence (n.)late 14c., essencia (respelled late 15c. on French model), from Latin essentia "being, essence," abstract noun formed (to translate Greek ousia "being, essence") from essent-, present participle stem of esse "to be," from PIE root *es- "to be."
Originally "substance of the Trinity;" the general sense of "basic element of anything" is first recorded in English 1650s, though this is the underlying notion of the first English use of essential."
I carried the airy feeling of this ethereal essence to Middletown Springs to pick up the lovely bowls Nick made for me. (That's his fun spinach wheelbarrow, above!).
He mentioned that this firing was particularly successful; I truly believe it's because there were three bowls of mine in the batch!
My order for some mugs is in for the fall, so the next firing will be a success, too.
(If you are interested, it's Open Studio there this weekend!)
Now I'm prepping for Fun Friday.
Last day of "Gate 12:Line 6 - Metamorphosis Faith in, and energy applied towards change and the emergence from standstill. Exaltation: Creative transcendence that when connected to the Harmonic Gate 22, through the channel of Openness, leads to successful mutation and the emergence of a new social form. The capacity to mutate and express new social forms."
Have I embodied enough of this ethereal essence myself, to share with the group tonight? (Like today's calendar - one person can make a difference!)
Will we be open to express new social forms - together?
Certainly, it feels timely! Bring it on...
