We gathered in our tight knit circle arranged today on pillows except Judy who chose to sit in a chair. There's more joviality and small talk to start and then we settled in to the third eye meditation. I couldn’t tell you what directives Christian gave other than there was more than the usual amount. I got the sense that Samuel was guiding him in some discreet way and proud of how well Christian is managing us. I also got the sense that Samuel was impatient with me at one point when my mind wandered. He snapped his fingers and said pay attention.
When the meditation first started Peter who was sitting across from me seemed to energetically come towards me. I felt that it was strange like the grim reaper had appeared for me. That is what I thought. This guy's job in real life is to transport dead bodies to the morgue—and today he’s coming for me! Like he was picking up some part of me that died or needed to die but had yet to be re-born.
I then saw the usual animals—an eagle and also got the sense of a bat (rebirth). After Peter’s energetic lurch in my direction I saw an ostrich—and thought what am I unwilling to let die and what am I burying my head in the sand about?? I shared with the group this strange visual that I had of Peter hopeful that he wouldn’t take offense. On the contrary, he actually pulled out a business card a friend had made for him as a joke which had a Grim Reaper saying on it! Funny and frightening too!
The second half was bhramari, a yogic term for breathing by making a buzzing sound. We were directed by the tape to do six rounds of making this buzzing sound followed by a minute of silence after each one. We were to concentrate on the third eye and throat area as we did this. Not to take it too seriously as being lighthearted was to be a part of the experience. My third eye saw bees (a few that stung me), then a honey comb. I felt intoxicated and then irritable. The feeling of irritability seemed to pass as I stared at the queen bee who had an apron on and was looking at me smiling. Then I was Winnie the Pooh dripping in honey and finally it finished with bees wax dripping down my third eye. I joked with the group that I felt buzzed at the end of the experience. A little intoxicated from all of that honey coated (Pooh) bear experience!
