Preparing the Hollow Vessel
Today’s post focuses on the alchemical elements and parts of self within you and setting the intentions and applications that will open you to the foundations we have laid in the previous posts.
Last night I was teaching a class about the Universal Laws of Order and Chaos and one of the Laws of focus was that of Polarity. We discussed the many ways that polarity can be exemplified and perceived and the need to acknowledge the seemingly disparate parts of that equation as the necessary components of creation that join I the space of emptiness (or hollowness) and birth something new.
This concept of drawing to yourself all that may perceived as opposition is not a new one, but it is one that many do not choose to lay claim to. The work is all about Light and arising in power and spirit or the work is all about delving onto the Shadow and excavating and curating what is most hidden. In reality the work is about all of it working together, in concert, to create the great and unique composition that is you-both corporeally and spiritually.
What Are My Polarities?
We have many pieces of polarized content within all of our subtle and physical nature. For this exploration I would like to focus on the pentagram of polarity that lay within. The Air of breath and Mind on one point and directly opposite the point of Water and movement.
The Earth of Body and Manifest creation on line with the upper most point of Spirit….
….and Spirit on line with the point of Fire.
And, although there is no scribed line from Earth to Fire they sit as pillars of extension on either side of Spirit’s spark.
The Hollow Vessel
The Hollow Vessel is what lay in the space centrally within the dialogue of alchemical and polarized points of dynamic.
This is the space of synthesis and gathering into itself all that is needed to grow and evolve both spiritually and mundanely.
Calling All Into The Hollow
I invite you to spend sometime with these statements and what arises for you as we call all the parts of our being into the space of the hollow of rebirth and transformation:
I call to a Mind that receives it flow of wisdom from the deep seas of gnosis
I call to the darkness of the birthing waters of creation to move in rhythm with the inspired rapture of breath exhaling into new life
I call to the Body of Form that aspires towards its Divine nature
I call to the Spirit that yearns for the lessons of corporeal incarnation
I call to the Fires that actively propel me towards the Divine Spark
I call to the Divine Spark that emanates into the Fires of creation’s Will
I stand in the emptiness awaiting the merging and co-mingling of all that I am
I move in the ebb and flow-the light and dark – closing and opening of my unfolding
I AM receptive and awakened to the potential of the convergence of many paths
I AM the Hollow Vessel that will BECOME the resilient and changeable SPIRIT of Manifest Form….
