There are nine of us today and it's a beautiful day. Shanti opens the window and lets a welcomed breeze in. As we start I find that my body feels uncomfortable. The left side of my neck hurts as does my right hip. I try not to move during the meditation and my discomfort becomes part of a mindful practice today.
There are two new women and I notice that they move more than the rest of us--one breathes loudly and this too becomes a mindful focus as do the sounds of the birds. I weave in and out of the third eye into more of a mindful practice when my awareness is called outward. I don't go as deep but a few significant things come through.
The first image that comes up is of a boy who has a vacant stare. I think he is Syrian and I may have seen his picture on the news.
Then, I am transported back to 2004 and I see the scene that has played out in my mind a few times over the years. It was just a snapshot but it was one of the most significant moments in my life. I was walking out of a souvenir store at Bethany Beach where my whole family was vacationing and saw an American Flag trinket. When I stared at it and the happy people coming out of the store it was like I was in the future and looking back on them and got the most nostalgic and yearning feeling of remember when.. it was as if I was seeing this picture of what we had back then that no longer existed. It was the strangest feeling as I knew that life today (2004) would someday be forever altered beyond how we know it.
As I was thinking back to this memory I got the most anxious feeling. Like I didn't want to go further into the eye. What I had seen today was enough (this flashback which really was a flash foward) and it was as far as my psyche would allow me to go.
Other images that came up were that of an African American man in a field who was trying to communicate with me but it wasn't safe to do so with words. Then he had a handcuff on one wrist and then I was cuffed to him. I can't remember anything else about it except that there was a barn that was in disrepair especially the roof. I thought of burning the wood and taking the barn down but instead decided to fix it board by board and then paint it. It started to come together as the image shifted out.
The animals that came through today were that of a snake, a black rabbit and maybe a dragon at the charge area. At the back of my heart was a box and I explored it by knocking on it and curiously bringing my attention to it.
That was about it for today...
Black Rabbit When you dream that you sight or that you catch a black rabbit it means that you have finally found the answer to a question that has been eluding you for some time. You have finally figured out something that you needed to know for a while and you have finally got a grasp on things yourself. This could be the type of thing that took you a long time to figure out or it could be the type of thing that you found the answer to relatively shortly. But either way, I was a question that had been vexing you and you finally found the answer.
