Mythical is not really the right name for unicorns, dragons, flying horses and other magical creatures. You see they are alive and well. It's just not on Earth. They live in other dimensions, some that vibrate close to our Earth plane. Because of this supposed mythical creatures do get seen sometimes. In an ethereal kind of way.
Once upon a time, in the days of Atlantis, some of these creatures did live here. I have experienced a distressing past life as a mermaid. Back in those days experimental breeding did occur with humans and animals. That's a sad story for another time.
What is it that we love about magical creatures and why are we drawn to their images today? I believe everything is a symbol or mirror in our world, everything shows us something about ourselves. When we are drawn to magical beings we are attracted to (via projection) our own inner magic. Unicorns, for example, represent purity, healing and innocence. Connecting with this energy brings us closer to our own innocent, pure self.
I saw a unicorn once. It was an other worldly kind of seeing. I had my eyes wide open in a real Earth place. It was a cold, misty morning. I was walking in some natural forest and came upon a pretty, grassy clearing. I felt energised and deeply connected to Spirit in this high vibration place I had come across.
I was privileged to see, for a few seconds only, into another dimension. I gasped out loud as I saw two beautiful white unicorns canter into the clearing. And then they were gone. I was shivering with the vibration I had experienced. I will never forget it.
If you are attracted to a magical creature know you may be familiar with them from another time. You may have lived close to one, or as one in a life on Earth or another plane of existence.
Consider what these beings symbolise to you. Mermaids represent our feminine power. Dragons our magical power, courage and strength. The wings of Pegasus lift us up to Source. Take these symbols as a message to embrace aspects of yourself.
And keep a look out for unicorns.
Sadness is an emotion that many people try to avoid. People say, "Don't be sad, it's all right." You get patted and soothed to hold your tears in. Others are uncomfortable with your sadness when they are out of touch with their own deep hurts.
Our conditioning has taught us that sadness equals weakness or is wrong. Not expressing our hurt has resulted in trapped emotion in our body. Sadness is a natural, healthy emotion. When we express it we feel clearer and more grounded.
We might think the tears will never stop if let ourselves feel. Eating, being busy, over thinking. working and controlling others can all be ways we avoid our sadness. Addictions stop you feeling your pain.
In my practise people often experience their sadness. It may be tears about what's on the surface or deeper, older crying that has been stored for years, or eons. New memories or images may come. The feelings can be intense and primal. I honour this bravery. It takes courage to allow such hurt to be felt. It's a privilege to witness. When people feel safe to feel, without being judged the healing is miraculous. The simple act of breathing, becoming present and feeling what is there is profoundly restorative.
Dense energy is being released from the body. Tightness, congestion and associated pain are leaving for good. Letting go of this heavy energy that has blocked vitality in your body is vital to wellbeing.
The very deep, guttural sobbing type of sad can have you feeling vulnerable and raw. That's ok. It's a tender place. For people who are not used to feeling vulnerable that can be unnerving. That can bring fears of being hurt or taken advantage of. The child within needs care. Sadness requires safety, during and after.
Emotional releases brings us closer to our Authentic Self. It's a beautiful, touching experience to be part of.
Support yourself, your clients and friends by allowing sadness to flow without judgement.
Wishing you courage to feel.
