I've been pondering the issue of tiredness. Virtually everyone I talk to feels tired despite sustained efforts toward health. We might be eating well, exercising, getting enough rest, and yet still in the morning we can feel dragged out. Sometimes we remember many deep and complex dreams. Others are having difficulty getting to sleep or staying asleep.
Last night I received a message about the process we're in. I was shown a number of identical golden spirals, each spiral representing a part of my life force incarnated in the hologram of lives. Although we think of life and past lives in a linear way, they are actually all occurring at the same time. And although we see other people as distinct and separate from us, we are all in fact one vibratory force incarnated into separate bodies over lifetimes, that are, of course, occurring all at once. Our time/space model conditioning makes this kind of difficult to understand, but if you just relax into the concept and think of yourself as a droplet of water in the center of an ocean, you can intuitively feel the concept. Another drop of water might be in the ocean on the other side of the world, and yet water is all water and it would be impossible to separate the droplets permanently.
I was shown that while dreaming I am focusing attention on these spirals and bringing them into alignment, into a sense of oneness. Slowly each spiral came closer to the other and began to line up on top of each other and then merge.
I was told that once they are all merged together my task of integration will be complete and I will be free, and that this message extends to everyone, which is why I am sharing it. Visualizing a number of golden spirals all around you and then merging within your heart can be a powerful meditation.
Then to my amazement as I looked for an image of a golden spiral to go with this post, I discovered the golden spiral is a geometric construct:
In geometry, a golden spiral is a logarithmic spiral whose growth factor is φ, the golden ratio. That is, a golden spiral gets wider (or further from its origin) by a factor of φ for every quarter turn it makes. (from Wikipedia)
Amazing! There are actually images of golden spirals all over the internet! Perhaps I should have known about this as my new logo is a nautilus and it is a close approximation of a golden spiral, but I guess I slept through geometry class! I was thinking of the nautilus as showing us how we start small in the center and continue building our consciousness, moving into each larger room we create for ourself, yet our original rooms are always still intact. Very psychosynthesis.
As well as working with the golden spiral image in your meditations, give yourself the gift of sleep, as much as you can take. Try to sleep in without an alarm clock on any days you can. Takes naps when possible. A few yoga stretches first thing in the morning and last thing before bedtime can help with sleep and the day's sense of wellbeing and purpose.
We are coming together in Oneness, despite the forces that are still trying hard to make us believe in separation and turmoil. Ignore the voices of fear and feel your connection to everyone who is connected to their inner spiral as we create a brilliant new paradigm.
