A Mystical Rose For Healing

At Hillshore, my country home in southern Ontario, my mother and father found themselves holding psychic “sittings” with a British couple dedicated to research in such matters. I was not part of their group, which met weekly, but she later confided in me, and showed me her binder of manuscripts which she had transcribed from their taped sessions.

From these group sessions – filled with fascinating material about reincarnation, karma, healing, gifts of the spirit, and so on – flowed my mother’s private, personal work in a special kind of meditation. She passed all this along to me, my most precious legacy from her.

I describe the form of meditation elsewhere here at Aquarian Reflections, but here I offer a short, simple method mom was shown early on in her personal healing work, the creation of a beautiful image to replace – literally, neurologically, tape over – ugly, painful, fearful ones.

Travels With the Higher Self

This is not meditation to quiet the mind, for example, but to open the mind at the unconscious level, and to allow an innate intelligence to guide the unfolding communication between all levels of Mind.

A Lesser Known Truth In the Original Depth Psychology of Jung

Carl G. Jung’s greatest legacy was his exploration of psychological transformation as it led into spiritual growth, guided by a mysterious, organizing Presence which he observed in his own life and in the life of his patients. His experience accords with my personal and professional experience in psychic Life Readings, astrology consultations, and dreamwork groups.

This Presence, Jung believed, gathered up our life experience in an ongoing integrative and transformative process – a process in which we could consciously participate, as we opened ourselves to meditation, self-knowledge, and spiritual thought.

In The Beginning
Life brings change. As the path winds up the mountain, it gets a little narrower. The real meaning of life is a question which begins to appear in our thoughts. What is the soul, and how does the life of the soul relate to the rest of our life?

A light begins to dawn in the reading of inspirational, alternative books, like those about Edgar Cayce, the Sleeping Prophet. He gave thousands of channelled “Life Readings”, with fascinating details drawn from something he called the Akashic Records. In these Readings, his Source broke the news to Cayce, a deeply religious, Christian man that, in fact, we each live not once, but many times.

Great Ship of the Desert * The Higher Self

Never Lost, Never Alone, Always Loved.

When I first set out on my Silk Road Journey, I used to walk, leading my Camel, and He patiently plodded in rhythm behind me. Yet at last I saw this to be unwise, for He was the Great Ship of the Desert, built by God for the Journey. I saw that He had always known the Way, softly brushing my back when I led us through drifting sands.

I came to know that my Camel was my Higher Self, whose other name was Soul. It was easy, then, to mount my Camel and trust completely, for on this Journey, His great heart would never fail.

The new arrangement works very well. As each new Dawn turns into Day, I hear His tinkling bell…His sand-wise feet now trace the Road in measured, swaying time. As Day fades quickly into Night, He rests with me by cool waters, in the shadow of the Palm.
