I’ve been handling the knack of meditating for an hour each day. It works best for me first thing in the morning before I get up and start the day. Sometimes it’s a peaceful haven and other times I get the same kinds of images I get when I sit in circle. The only difference is that I don’t have a Greg or Zoe or Mary to help me interpret them. I have to rely on myself or phone a friend.
Today I had four very distinct images.
- An opening gate – think it was in a field
- One foot of a black square-toed ankle lace-up boot.
- The same boot with a comfy settee in it.
- A couple sitting on a swing chair on the veranda of an old colonial style house in the USA. She’s very pale, almost while with blonde hair, and he’s black. He has his arm stiffly around her shoulder. With this image I got an intense pain in the back of my head and what I can only describe as a very uncomfortable/uneasy feeling, which disappeared when the image went.
Here’s my attempt at interpretation.
Gate – encouraging me to look on the other side. Do I believe the grass is greener on the other side?
Black boot – journeying on my own. This spiritual journey can only be undertaken on my own?
Boot with settee – I’ve become comfortable with the journey.
Couple – Was one of my maternal ancestors white? Was there a lot of pain and discomfort associated with that relationship?
I called a friend. She suggested the open gate may be spirit realm letting me know I’ve got open access. (No need to keep asking in each meditation to be connected.) She said the boot showed an imbalance in my life as there is supposed to be two of them, but that I’d somehow accepted and become comfortable with the imbalance. During the discussion it occurred to me that the couple may be the original source of any mental health issues in my family, (See family constellation blog) as it was suggested in constellation work that it came through my maternal line.
I’d welcome any offers of additional or alternative interpretations…please.
