Nov. 7 & 8
I believe it was Thursday November 7th when I was sitting to meditate, that I started praying first, in a different way than usual. Somehow, I found myself praying for divine power; that startled me, because I haven’t believed in asking for divine power. I believe we are meant to focus on asking to be guided to do divine will, and that we will then receive all the strength and power we need to accomplish divine will.
Right after praying for divine will, however, I sensed two big, blade-like metal shields behind my back, all the way from the floor to above my shoulders, connected in the center at the base, and pointing outwards like a big “V.” I asked, “what is that?” and I was told it was my Ka.
Well, I had only once read of a Ka, and so I knew that it had something to do with spiritual energy or spiritual power, but I was really concerned that I had “gone over to the dark side” by asking for power, and the strong, metallic feel of the blades of the Ka really concerned me.
So of course I did an internet search later. I discovered that the concept of the Ka is part of the multi-faceted ancient Egyptian concept of the soul. It is depicted as two arms raised up like two goal posts and connected by a bar in-between. The similarity exists then with my vision, which included two arms or branches to the Ka.
In ancient Egyptian thought, the Ka is the spiritual energy or power of the individual, so in effect that confirms that, as I had prayed for spiritual power, I had been shown that I had received it.
That day, I also was lifted up above the earth, and shown the view from where the angels look down upon the earth, and I was told “We need you to incarnate on earth because we cannot go there.” My sense was this was higher beings who asked me to incarnate love, but I cannot remember if they used that word. I know that at some point, I heard a higher being making a pun on incarnate love and “Carol, incarnate love.” It sounded something like “inCarollove.” If you think about it, we could all put our names like that, in effect saying “In me let there be love,” by saying “In – (name) – Love.”
How beautiful will the world be when we all incarnate love? We will all exist In Love!
The next day, Friday the 8th, when I meditated, I again sensed the Ka, only this time it was made of feathers, and stood up like a feathered, winged “V.” I felt better about the feathers than I did about the steel! Although, now that I think about it, the feathers were also kind of brown and dull like the appearance of the metal Ka, so neither time did the Ka look flashy or fancy; just dull and ordinary Ka it is for me!
This day, I also was lifted up above the earth, and shown how people are in so much emotional and spiritual pain, and told that they need to know that they need to look within to find their answers. Most people seek answers and solutions outside themselves, but the Tao is the path of inner awareness. This was also an essential aspect of the Way of early Christianity, as it was called in the New Testament.
The Way, the Tao, the path of peace. Only by seeking inside ourselves for that for which we long will we find peace. The outer manifestations are secondary; not irrelevant, just secondary. When we practice detachment, as both Buddha and Jesus teach us to do, then we can let go of having to have events and relationships go a certain way. We are free to decide how we would like to respond to events outside ourselves, but we are much freer when we let go of our attachment to the outcome.
May it be so.
Love & Light to you!
