It was a series of
bad dreams that led us to create this meditation. In times of trouble
as a child, I reached to my mother. It was her arms that comforted me,
her words that soothed my inner fright, her heart beat that smoothed
away my fears.
When my mother passed, her
and I became One. We began re-membering what it is like to be an aspect
of the Mother Earth, for We are ALL One. I have always spoken to the
Mother Earth since I was a child. She would appear to me visually
in dreams, and later I began channeling Her Wisdom. Now my own Mother
is but another reflection of the whole.
The Presence of the Mother
is always available. We walk and live upon a round image and reflection
of the Mother. Our biologies were created from Mother/Father God/Goddess,
and so the Mother energy is woven into the fibers of our Beings. We
are never without Mother Love.
Center and focus on your
breathing. Allow ideas of the hands of the Mother to envelop you from
the Earth around you. Let the images and visions of your day run through
your mind, and then let them go.
Now let the images the Mother
is sending you penetrate your thinking. The essence of the Mother
is around you, cradling you like petals of a rose. Let Her Heart Fire
begin to warm your own Heart. Allow Mother Love to fill your being.
The images and visions and
thoughts you had earlier simply dissolve in the Light of Her Truth.
Allow a vision or idea of the Mother to make Herself available to
you. A warm golden presence enters your at-moss-sphere. Let whatever
ideas or visuals come to mind where you can sit together, being One
in Mother Love.
Your hands and the hands
of the Mother are placed together. Place any idea of discord or trouble
into Her hands. They are simply ideas and memories. What is real and
lasting and permanent will not dissolve in the Light of Her Truth.
She brings to you a memory
of a time when you were in conflict with another person. You see that
their words and actions fell like seeds upon the Earth, and your response
nurtured and watered and grew these seeds. Were they nurtured and
grown and encouraged with Love or Fear?
She places a hand upon you
and the person you were in conflict with. "Forgiveness," She says,
filling you and the image of this other person with complete and total
forgiveness. Does the image or idea of this person now change? Vanish?
Become stronger? Do you now feel differently towards this person?
She places Her hands upon
the ground. "You both walk the same dirt. Breathe the same air. Drink
the same rain. Warm under the same sun."
She pats Her belly and then
smiles. "You both eat when you are hungry." Waving Her arm before
Her, She reveals two gardens. One is infested with disease and decay.
The fruit is rotting from neglect, and the garden is filled with shadows.
The other is fresh, lush, vibrant, almost glowing with health. "One
garden is nurtured from Fear, and one garden is nurtured from Love.
Both realities are valid."
She shows you an image or
idea of you and this person again. You are shown the willingness of
each of you to walk in your garden of choice. No matter what the other
person chooses, you are free to choose which garden you will walk
in. How you think, act, and feel has absolutely nothing to do with
the choices the other person makes.
"But Mother. I see this person
wants to walk beside me, but they are immersed in Fear and I do not
wish to walk that way. They seem so angry. What shall I do?" you ask.
"Fear and Love cannot occupy
the same garden. Conflict grows no fruit. Tend to your own garden
first. Nurture the thoughts, ideas and actions in your daily life.
There are many ways to nurture Love. Sing a song that increases the
Love you feel within you. Read passages from an inspiring book. Play
with a child or pet. Choose Love in all that you do. This other person
will either be enhanced or repelled by Love. It is not your choice.
Everyone must choose which garden to tend."
"But I want this person to
feel the Love I do. Make them see my way of thinking. I know if they
feel just part of what I feel they would change." Mother smiles. She
takes a vine hiding in the shadows from the garden of Fear and places
it into the garden of Love. The vine wiggles in discomfort and begins
shrinking back from the sudden Light. After a few moments, She picks
it up lovingly and returns it to the comfort of its familiar shadows.
"Fear and Anger are shields.
They protect one from the vulnerable gentleness of Love. That vine
was not ready for the full effects of Love, or sunlight. It was comfortable
in the shadows. Being in the garden of Love was a shock and vastly
different from it's personal experience. But now it will remember
the touch of the sunlight, and remember the feeling of the garden
"Now it knows there is another
choice because, for a brief moment, it experienced something new.
If I were to force that vine to stay somewhere it was not comfortable,
it would spend too much time arguing and fighting and trying to get
away. It would be too painful. In time, now, that vine just might
reach again to the Light, just for another brief touch of Love. The
next time it may be more comfortable."
"Then the vine will learn
the difference of fruit grown from Fear or Love. But the vine would
not have had this knowledge if I had forced it from its chosen path."
"And I learned as well,"
Mother continues. "I learned what it is like to be vulnerable, scared
to change and grow in a new direction. I remembered what it felt like
to be unloved. Now my thoughts and ideas towards that vine will be
more loving. I will stand in my garden of Love when I think about
it, and look forward to the day when it chooses of its own free will
to grow in a manner that is more loving to self and others."
"I will speak kind of that
vine, for to speak unkindly or judge or act aggressively would take
away from the feeling tones in my own garden of Love. I will radiate
the essence of Love so that all I come into contact with will wonder
about my smiles and joy, and tangibly feel it, and maybe allow a spark
of that Love to grow within their own garden."
She brings you another memory.
An event of conflict going on upon the planet involving many Beings.
Your spoken words help to nurture Fear or Love as this garden of experience
grows. Everything you do about this situation, in your thought actions
and deeds, enhances the feeling tones of this experience. Every person
you talk to about this global event is affected. Everything you do
nurtures the garden of Fear or Love.
She again pats the ground.
"We all grow from the same dirt, and are watered with the same rain,
and nurtured with the same Light. It is only our thoughts which make
us think we are different. Love, Light and Freedom are but a thought
She reaches from beside Her
and brings forth several small seeds. Handing them to you, She asks,
"Would you plant these for me?" The Love beaming from Her eyes brings
tears to your own.
You take these seeds into
your hand, knowing everything you think act and do nurtures a garden
of Fear or Love. Your spoken words manifest your intent. You place
these seeds upon the ground…..
"Welcome home, and thank
