ELM 6: East Expedition

SESSION ONE:

COMBINED TIME OF 2 HOURS

ACTIVITY ONE – 40 minutes

FIND YOUR POWER SPOT

Allow yourself to be called in a direction until you find a place where you can sit on the earth.  Let your intuition guide you.  It is good if you can be relatively alone, spread out from any others.

Find a place where you feel you can deeply connect with your own wisdom source and mother earth.

CONTEMPLATION IN POWER SPOT

Reflect on the following two questions, and write your responses in your journal:

1: What do I need to remember for this journey to bring me the depth of benefit I yearn for?

2: What do we, as a circle of people on this journey, need to remember for us to lean in together and create a strong, trustful, and vibrant learning journey together?

ACTIVITY TWO – 60 minutes

SUNRISE – WITNESS THE AWAKENING

Take time to be with the morning before the sun rises.  If possible, be there when it is still dark.  Sit in nature and witness:

How the sun is revealing the light
The deep quiet of the morning
The birds as they awaken

Stand after the sun rises… ask for a message from the Grandfather Sun for your spirit

Create a mandala on the earth to hold this message

ACTIVITY THREE – 15 minutes

PLAN TO SIT IN THE QUIET OF THE EARLY MORNING OR A QUIET LATE NIGHT BEFORE YOUR DREAMS

If possible, arrange a time when you are on your own… in nature or near a window with a candle… create a sacred space for yourself and then listen to the Cascade recording

SESSION TWO:

COMBINED TIME OF 2 HOURS

 

PREPARATION FOR ACTIVITY ONE:

You will now be entering some deep reflection that invites you to listen to a more subtle kind of language. You will be asked to remember the time before you were born, and what you remember about your birth.

Before you begin, please read this story: (click on the right +)

More often than not, if asked, we would say we are not able to answer these kinds of questions. That is because we are used to access our conscious awareness and less often our unconscious awareness, or our subconscious awareness. When we open this kind of reflection, we need to shift our awareness to pay attention to a different kind of language. This is more subtle language, where we can receive impressions, images, subtle knowing and intuitive feeling to sense these things.

My Story:

I was invited to an intuitive art session by my sister. (years ago) (over 30 years ago as a matter of fact)… I received some instruction in the early part of the day, and then after a visualization experience with a small group, led by the art instructor, we all gathered in the art room. The walls were covered with shelves filled with all kinds of materials. We each chose some and the others began. The art instructor came to me and said she was going to draw two circles on my paper, and then asked me to tell her where to put each of them and how big they should be.

I said that I had no idea at all. She took that in stride and asked me again. I said I had no clue. She again, with patience, asked me to check inside and asked again. By this time, I was a bit irritated and to just overcome this hurdle I threw my hands out and said this big and here and here… very loosely. Ok…whew… now what… I thought… Here are the two circles. I asked the instructor, do I paint inside them or outside of them? She answered, oh you can paint anywhere you like… Then a part of me wanted to say, so why did you make me draw the circles!!! (I didn’t though)

So… ok here I go… I am ready to paint. I can’t. OMG! Why not? Because I can now feel the circles are in the wrong place!!! This is amazing to me! So… I go back and let the instructor know what happened. She is calm and collected… and says ok, no problem… let’s redraw them. I knew exactly where they needed to go and how big they had to be. Amazing…

One more thing…
After I painted on the first paper, I asked the art instructor what is next. She said, well, do you need to draw circles again? (Can you believe it!!!) I said I had no clue… (that was my conscious awareness speaking) But then after some reflection, I found I could “know” that yes, I did need to draw them again. And guess what? They were in different places and they were different sizes! And I knew exactly where they needed to be. I had found a way to access the unconscious knowing within me. But my brain could not tell me how. I had to feel, and sense into a deeper place.

This is simply a story to illustrate we can access other ways of knowing.

EAST ACTIVATION WHEEL

The East Activation Wheel will illuminate a sequence we can follow to evoke the energy of Creation Intelligence.

Beginning in the East we Awaken the I AM energies of light, potential, the infinite, the unlimited, freedom.

In the South of this sequence, we Bring Sun Energy into the Self. Here we allow the energy of the Sun fill us with light in a conscious way.

In the West of this sequence, we Emanate Spirit, Light, Love. Imagine the sun energy filling each cell of our being and radiating out, emanating like the sun, filling the space around us.

In the North of this sequence, we Activate All Potential. We remember we have all possibility and unlimited resource within and around us.

Creation Intelligence Activation Wheel

ACTIVITY TWO – 30 minutes

TIME IN NATURE

You are invited to find a place to sit in nature. Bring yourself to a quiet and contemplative energy within. To do this, we most often need to consciously quiet the mind, allow any current issues or challenges to be set aside for the time being, and create the space for inner stillness. If you wish, listen once more to the Cascade Recording and allow this melody of images and words wash over you and bring you to your contemplation.

Reflect and begin the creation of your I AM expression

SESSION FIVE:

COMBINED TIME OF 90 MINUTES

ACTIVITY – 90 minutes

FOUR CARDS AND A RECORDING

When we are in person, we will present each of you with a set of four cards. Until then we are asking you to receive them in this format, and to reflect upon them.

The first card opens a Universal Principle offering a view into the nature of the Universe and a Practice which illustrates how we can live in harmony with the nature of the Universe.

The second card, called the Mirror Dimension Card, offers a view of how to shift our state of being. In particular, it is a way to step into the fullness of Creation Intelligence when we wish to activate this intelligence.

    The third card is the Evocative Leader Card which is opening the field of awareness of how the Evocative Leader can evoke self and the field around us.

    The fourth card opens Creation Intelligence and is a summary teaching and anchoring of this wisdom and knowledge.

    Please take some time to contemplate the information presented and listen to the recording which will deepen this understanding.
