The O of Life
The O of Life started connecting into my awareness on 11-22-11
The O of Life is the symbolic and energetic representation of our continuous connectedness through spiritual and earthly oneness. I describe and show this though the following experiences.
Tree dream, dreamed on 11-22-11
I woke up this morning from a very vivid dream.
I was at a conference where I had to perform 3 skits. The group I was to perform it with had little rehearsal and basically forgot what they were to do. I as well had little rehearsal and forgot for the most part what I was to do. I could tell the group was nervous and didn’t want to do it. So I just pulled it together within myself for the group. I went out there and performed the little that I knew with some improve as the group reluctantly followed suit.
I came out of the conference and started walking to find a ride out of town. I had been visiting. As I was walking to find some people to give me a ride I noticed these male lumberjacks cutting down trees in a really heartless, violent way. I must have been in a car as I remember seeing rows of them pass by my sight. These males were just attacking the trees, grabbing them and cutting into them. Like they were angry at them for living.
It was almost like witnessing a mass rape. Watching the raping of mother earth. This was the opposite of an orgy. It was a massacre.
I was out of the car on the side of the road. It was a long main country road. On the right side of the road I witnessed a huge machine with a big saw arm, just start slicing the trees at the trunks. Cutting the trees off at their heart.
Each side of the road had beautiful green forests before the conference. Now it was a scene of gray dust and decapitated trees.
I was crying my heart out. I was hugged by a woman who had been witnessing, though I didn’t know her, I felt like I had. I was traveling, only knowing people in the area through the heart family.
I was crying and apologizing to the trees on behalf of humans. Sorry for our careless, heartless misuse of you and the materials we make from you. Sorry for all the paper created and used. I was praying in devastation. Wishing more people would send their apologies and forgiveness energies to the trees.
On my way to The Oaks Mall today I was listening to a podcast program on how to learn conversational French. I was learning how to say cross, crucifix as I drove up over the grade on the 101 freeway. As I am saying the French word for cross and thinking about ‘how do I say balanced cross?’ I was picturing a balanced cross in my mind, when I saw a big bird flying towards me from the right. It looks like an eagle. As it flew over above the front of my car I noticed it had a white head. “It’s a bald eagle!”
I put my hand over my heart and held it there in amazement of the energy I was receiving at the sight of the bird. I also felt very honored. The sighting felt like a confirmation for my dream.
To me seeing this was a sign of the rebalancing of the destruction of nature.
The photo above of the balanced cross medicine wheel with a bald eagle in it, represents that.
I was having lunch at the Mall's outdoor patio when I started seeing repetitive patterns of Os and Oaks in my life.
I live in a place with a lot of Oak Trees. I make Acorn jewelry, the seed for starting the life of another Oak tree and what Native Americans would use for grain.
I started to think about other words with the sound "O" and how they are similar in meaning . Here is the list I came up with.
Words with meanings of beginnings and continuations in life
Oh - a realization
Oats - I've been eating oats in the morning for my basic food foundation
Oscillate – another word for vibration
Symbolic mean of the O
Nature of the Oak Tree
I had recently seen the Cirque Du Soleil Show O at the BellagiO. The French word for water is Eau, pronounced O. Trees need water to live. We need water to live.
The show explores the concept of infinity and the elegance of water’s pure form, taking as inspiration everything from street theater to elaborate opera.
A visual representation of the energy of O is in the tOrus. I could see this energy coming off of the tree in front of me as I made these connections. The structure of the energy of the torus is one we can use to learn, describe and cultivate the energy of nature from within our world on earth and within our energetic body. Trees exhibit this circular balanced structure. There is much to learn from the nature of trees and animals. They are so important not to look over and not to cut down.
On this thanksgiving day I am grateful for nature and honoring the earth.
Just like the Indigenous Native Americans that had been slaughtered on the first Thanksgiving, our Native Earth trees are currently in a genocide.
What are the ways you can honor the earth and the living breathing beings upon it? Use less paper and generate demand for renewable resources and products. Can you give love and forgiveness to what happened to Native Tribes and apologies to trees? Give a home to the bees.
