Are you ready to move fiercely into the spring? Do you think this month is called March for a reason? March is named after the God Mars, a powerful warrior. Maybe we need to draw upon that energy to “get us through” the last bit of winter? What do you think?
So, on your behalf I will journey to Mars and see what He has to offer. Remember that when you read this you too will have a lesson and a healing and then something to do in the practical world just from reading it. We are all interconnected!
Sitting up straight in my canoe I look around for my Ancestors. Bear is sheepishly coming forward and Grandmother is looking stern. I straighten up even more! The guide is Possum. Hmmm, I think. Protection as always is a crystal formation. I’m set.
My fingers become webbed and I am moving the canoe forward out into the current that is fast but not scary. Gently, easily I propel us into the swift stream and away we go. The landscape is moving hurriedly past and we’re really moving now. Taking my fingers out of the water the webbing goes away. And we lift off, Bear and Grandmother are both along which is unusual. Possum has her head out over the bow and her little ears are pinned back. She’s smiling!
The canoe spirals out into the sea of stars. Wow! This is so amazing tiny us out here with this vastness. I wonder if anyone back on Earth can see us, do we look like a meteorite? Is there a kid somewhere pointing up telling his parents to “Look up!” to see this tiny canoe? I wave, just in case.
We level out but are still going at break neck speed. I put my arms out to the side and webbed fingers slow us down. I pull my hands back in to normal fingers. I feel like I am on a magic carpet. There is nothing I need to do, so I look around I see Orion and he waves his shoulders at me, I love his slim waist and blow him a kiss. On we go, I am drawn to stand up in the canoe and just blow kisses to all the stars to tell them how happy they make people and how much we like the night sky.
With outstretched arms I feel the warmth and radiance of appreciation. Night after night the stars show up. They have watched us forever and they have fondly shone down on us lighting our way through stormy weather. Never failing us, every night they are there. “Put your trust in us, after all you are star stuff” is the message I receive. I reach up and wrap this silvery shawl about me and off we go.
The canoe rocks ever so gently, feeling drowsy I curl up with Bear. Feeling his deep snore I drift off. Grandmother wakes us to a brilliant display of Mars’ red aura. It’s very warm and I am happy for the cool shawl of stars. Possum is clapping wildly and the crystals hum. This is an extra ordinary display of vibrant energy. The red I am used to seeing as Mars is a humble representation of what He has to offer. Reds that are violet, blue hues, yellow flakes, tiny white bits to reflect the heat, together they dance each with their own resonance. With harmony comes unity.
I feel the colors penetrating my body, each organ soaks up the color energy with which it feels attuned. Calmly I vibrate while it feels like each and every cell is being refreshed, renewed and revitalized. I feel lighter and notice that there is an old skin laying on the bottom of the canoe. “Drop it” I hear. So cautiously I throw it overboard. Immediately it burns up, GONE! I feel fantastic. Bear’s coat seems shinier and Grandmother is beaming. We have all felt the essence of Mars.
With a flourish Mars sends us back across the cosmos to the tiny beach where I start my journeys. We have re-turned!! No longer who we were mere minutes ago. This time everyone thanks me for taking them along on this spectacular journey to Mars! WOW! They have never thanked me before and I am humbled! Aho
Five archetypes help me understand journeys whether they are yours or mine. The Visionary is you or me setting the intention and asking the question. The Enlightened Spiritual Warrior takes action or waits in the journey. The Healer brings to our attention what healing is possible from the adventure. The Magician concretizes the experience by bringing actions or images into the practical world. Information without implementation is just “mind frick” (T. Harv Eker).
The Enlightened Spiritual Warrior allows the canoe to spiral to out into the sea of stars. This facilitates a feeling of upliftment and freedom from heaviness. When I do use my webbed fingers things change quickly so I keep my hands to myself, not mucking about in how the journey is progressing I become the witness rather than the controller.
The Teacher points out that with arms outreached to encompass the stars our mantra can be "I open fully to give and receive love." The skin at the bottom of the canoe reminds me of snake shedding old skins. Mars has burned up the old and I feel renewed and lightened of my burdens. Mars also gives off an aura of vibrant energy that refreshes and revitalizes me. So the teaching is to let go and trust, be consumed, all fired up and burdens will drop away.
The Healer acknowledges the long relationship humankind has had with the stars, our guides from whom we come. Night after night the stars show up saying “Put your trust in us.” The starry sky became a shawl wrapped around me that reminds me that we are connected in every way to the Universe, protected and loved by it as well. The healing is that in trusting, one feels a part of everything feeling love and appreciation as well as feeling loved.
What stands out to you in this journey? Is there a way you can use this ancient trust in the stars to open more to love, to feel freedom from burdens known or unknown? Be fierce, spread your arms open wide, look up and see where you come from!
