I started this post as a bit of a ramble regarding synchronicity. Near the end I realized it was also about what I was being told by that synchronicity.
I’ve had the following up on the About page since the beginning of this blog, “Synchronicity is the currency of the magical.”
I had a series of interesting experiences occur to me this morning and I realized it was as excellent example of how synchronicity and the magical/mystical works. Here is a brief play by play of how it all went down.
As a matter of course in my morning, I usually stop to check the news. Now, these days, I do it very sparingly and usually much later in the morning. Typically, no more than twice a day. Just before I do I will go through a small ritual where I ground and, basically, brace myself. I remind myself to stay focused and to let things unground me. This time I did the above and then I said quietly to myself, “Lead me to what I should see.”
So I checked Google news, looked at the rundown, and nothing stood out. Fair enough. I then went to the BBC to see their highlights. I scrolled down and then, bam, I saw it. “New Dead Sea Scrolls Cave Discovered.” Ohhh, that looked promising! I read the article. It was an interesting but, to sum it up, “we found another cave, there were scrolls here but, well, it looks like someone stole them in the 1950’s.” Right.
Regardless, it got me curious about the Dead Sea Scrolls again and so I felt the urge to look them up online. I found them over at Gnosis.org. The first entry caught my attention. “The Divine Throne Chariot.” This, in turn, immediately had me thinking of the upcoming Chariot card from my Imbolc reading! I began to read the introduction…
“The Divine Throne-Chariot draws its inspiration from Ezekiel (1:10) and is related to the Book of Revelation (4). It depicts the appearance and movement of the Merkabah, the divine Chariot supported and drawn by the cherubim, which is at the same time a throne and a vehicle.”
If you wish, follow the link and read the scroll in it’s entirety. It’s short but powerful.
My next step was to research the Merkabah and found an interesting read from Crystallinks. It started with this…
“Merkabah, also spelled Merkaba, is the divine light vehicle allegedly used by ascended masters to connect with and reach those in tune with the higher realms. “Mer” means Light. “Ka” means Spirit. “Ba” means Body. Mer-Ka-Ba means the spirit/body surrounded by counter-rotating fields of light, (wheels within wheels), spirals of energy as in DNA, which transports spirit/body from one dimension to another.
I then spent the next hour or so reading that page and looking over the “Teaching of Spherical Breathing: Using 18 Breaths” which is at the bottom of the page. After that I decided to put a spin on things and began to google “Using a Merkaba.”
At this point, though, I caught myself before falling further down the research rabbit hole and took it back to basics. What was I supposed to see or hear? Easy. I’m being reminded to focus on the upcoming energy of the Chariot from the Imbolc reading but to also bring this new information into it. When I did the reading I was focused on the aspects of the two different colored horses being used in unison to move the chariot itself. That called to me then and still resonates now. I discovered a few days ago that Venus was in Aries and is soon to go retrograde. Again, I thought of the Chariot card and it’s female driver in the Druidcraft deck. Feminine energy charging forward perhaps?
However, it seems to be much more potent than any of it. It seems like a marker for a spiritual and energetic surge that we’ve not seen in a long time. And, more importantly, it comes from the energy of the Rebirth card. A potent wave, indeed. Though not exactly timed up with the Full moon tomorrow the Chariot is certainly close. It feels as if this is something that will happen in response to the Full Moon, the penumbral eclipse and a “minor grand sextile” all occurring tomorrow night.
So, this is the question we have to ask ourselves. “Are we ready to step into the Chariot?” Are we ready to connect and merge with the energy of the Merkaba, the “wheels within wheels?”
The horses are being drawn up. The wheels are being aligned. The Piper’s call has sounded.
