I’ve been thinking allot about purification. Not in the context that there is a clean slate, free of all toxins or fear based thoughts, but more in the sense of self realization and awareness of the ever present beauty that is the core light, of all living beings. Many people consider purification to refer to a wiping away of all that they do not truly accept within themselves. As if the choices, foods, chemicals, emotions or thoughts that they are uncomfortable with are ‘less’ than pure. I believe that purity exists as a level of awareness, where the issues, challenges, and day to day distractions of life, circle but cannot dampen, the greatest core of light that exists within us all.
Imagine a globe of light, and this light is at the heart center of the physical body. It is a white globe of light that radiates different spectrums of color at its edges, yet at its center it is brilliant white light. This is the ‘pure’ aspect of every living being. Life choices, circumstances, challenges, fears, intense emotions and self destructive tendencies may cloud the ‘inner eye’ from seeing this bright globe, but the ‘purity’ remains intact. White Tara, an ascended master, or goddess, brings us the gifts of reintegration of our awareness of this ‘pure’ power source that resides within us all. Her messages are for the ‘entirety’ of our being, as her gifts of healing and clarity bring a greater self realization into being.
The image that she shares with me is of her illuminated figure. At first, there is the figures silhouette of a seated woman, her hands held with a finger and thumb touching, arms positioned as if in mid dance. The silhouette has a cascade of light pouring around all sides of it. The image transitions into illuminating a face with a gentle smile, details with a lotus that she sits upon and her being infused with white and green light, the background now in a soft shadowed contrast. In this manner she demonstrates that the being, the entirety of the being is both light aspects and shadow aspects. Just as well are a compilation of the choices we make that inspire gentleness and those that have self destructive qualities. To reach a level of self awareness and Purity, consider that the light at our core illuminates all of our being. The human experience of despair, of frustration, of intense joy and that of compassion, love and kindness. On an internal exploration, we may be surprised how the qualities we hold as imperfect have brought opportunities for self transformation. Perhaps we have felt ashamed of our stubbornness, or been told we need to be more flexible. Yet perhaps this stubbornness in another context, the flip side or alternate illuminated aspect, is actually one of our greatest strengths for accomplishing projects, building new lives, and surviving great pain.
As the pure light within each soul shines outwards form the emotional, mental, spiritual and physical bodies, it may encounter ‘blocks’ that have been erected during this particular life experience, but also from others. Perhaps there is an irrational fear of fire, the physical experience in this life has never afforded a burn from fire, yet with deep mediation, it is revealed that there was death through fire in a previous lifetime. This fear or karmic imprint might exist to caution the individual as they seek out a present life path that aids others, such as a fireman or fire woman, or a medical worker for those that have been burned.
In seeking a greater level of self awareness, through allowing the pure light within to illuminate the shadows of the self, we become like the figure of White Tara, dancing seamlessly, slowly flipping form silhouette to corporeal, from the present incarnation between the greater existence of our Souls. We can ‘see’ and seek the self knowledge that empowers us to harness the immense gifts we have brought forward to the planet, and to claim ‘all’ of who we are as the most equipped with tools for success human, that we each can be. We will have times where this illumination of self is uncomfortable, times when we wish to make new choices and engage in activities that afford experiences that resonate more deeply with our ‘core’. We can reach out to one another for support, for understanding, and for encouragement. We can imagine that our ‘Selves’, or full spectrum of light and color, physical mass, water and body, emotional spectrum and mental acuity have the potential, the strength and the alacrity to grow. We diffuse our light, we shed sparks into others lives, we make choices that hide our purity, and we later find ways to courageously shout “Yes, this is who I am!” In this way we are wholly illuminated. White Tara brings us each the gentle encouragement to join her dance.
Her hands reach out to us, her light shines from both within us and through us. To connect with this energy, here is a prayer I have found useful:
“Please Divine Consciousness, in the aspect of White Tara, send your illumination and strength to aid me in connecting with my core of Purity. help me to feel the expansive and cleansing quality of connection to my divine light, and aid me in seeing the ways in which I am blocking or have blocked this divine flow. I ask that in dreams, and waking consciousness I receive clear messages of ways to incorporate all that I am into the greatest service to humanity and the world as a whole. Thank you for your assistance. With light, and Thanks, Om, Amen and Aho.”
With reverence for your core of Light, and thanks for your dancing this dance of life with us all,
