This post shares my own images and process from the Mystery to Mastery course held in St Petersburg in January 2011.
The first image reminds me of myself when I was a teenager. I was happy to give him a forest background. My perception was that this one is sensitive and understands, but I also understood he needs recognition. The bottle that went with him was B3. It is the first bottle I ever chose. My meditation took me through many images but arrived at the memory of my spending time up trees as a child. With that came the realization that I had been happy with my own company, alone in nature.
The second image is connected to a path in the tree of life. B10 – Green / Green. Aside from the snake and the four leaf clovers: symbols of danger and (the hope for) good luck, the central image was for me about balance. Three objects in an unstable pile. Again I couldn’t say why I chose it exactly, but I was drawn to it.
The third image was connected to Maha Chohan. Yet again choices of images seemed a little random. I like the sun’s reflection in the water – it seemed a good image for Maha Chohan – the teacher who is always one step ahead. If I try to grab the light all I will find in my hand is water. But the image of the man waving I found arresting. It is Valentino – a fashion designer. He is the orchestrator. The people around the edge looking at him are puppets in his game. He calls the tune, yet he too is inspired by the light from above. The third face – I liked it. I wanted to include it. It seemed the right place.
A story revealed
It was only the following day, reviewing the pictures, that I was struck by the common theme between the three pictures. Between 2 and 3 the connection was the presence of three in the middle of the picture. In 2 they were unbalanced, in 3 they were aligned. Between 1 and 3 there is the theme of attention. The sensitive one in the first image needed recognition but found it easier to be alone. In 3 the three images at the centre remain balanced even when others look at them!
This sequence of images revealed a process about being more centred. Also to understand what is underneath my need for recognition and how that may be healed. The last step of the course involved finding a solution for this process. The structure is a little similar to a 4 bottle reading. My bottle choice was very interesting and though I did not make a picture for it, I found an image from which I learnt something about myself. That is now my practice.
The Mystery to Mastery course takes students on a journey to explore a part of themselves. A healing journey that is supported by the Aura-Soma products and given a context by the Tree of Life. The Mastery in the title signifies learning to live with more balance in this world. The Mystery refers to the unknown source from which our life springs, the unknown that prompts us in choosing bottles and creating images. I hope to present several of these courses in 2011. So far they are scheduled in Hungary and Japan with more to follow.
