Piecing it Together
Have you ever worked a puzzle without a picture to reference? Until enough pieces start fitting together, you have no idea what you’re building. Sometimes by working blindly, you might discover the end-product is more than you could have imagined. Allow me to share an experience that resulted in the types of surprising confirmations and validations that keep me on the mystical path that has come to define me.
It started on June 21, 2021, while attending a crystal bowl/energy healing meditation at Church of Spiritual Light in neighboring Fort Myers, Florida.
It had been sixteen months since I had attended one of these powerful meditations, and I was past due for a tune-up.
When I stepped into the church, I felt at home. Arriving forty minutes early allowed ample time to prepare. I arranged a comfortable mat on the floor, looking forward to meditating and relaxing before the event was to begin. As soon as I laid down, my stomach started churning, indicating the energy from this sacred place had already begun flowing.
As I relaxed into my surroundings, a deep blue night sky of the cosmos flooded my vision. Thousands of brightly lit stars began blinking into existence while others faded. A message began:
June 21, 2021
It is, indeed, a new beginning.
I was surprised when this thought entered my mind: When a star dies, it takes years before we notice it on Earth. From our perspective, we see it as bright and shining.
Change your perspective, my friend. Step into the frequencies of the divine. Step into the timeless nature of all that is.
With those words, I found myself zooming through the cosmos and beyond, rocketing past galaxies. I felt humbled when I compared myself to these gigantic islands of stars. I realized that we on planet Earth are but a mere speck, smaller than a grain of sand. The message continued:
Know your place in the universe. Know your worth. Know your divine nature.
As those words entered my awareness, I felt my heart swell. I immediately responded by taking several deep breaths. With each exhalation, my physical body began to dissolve until I had completely disintegrated. My consciousness separated from the realm of physicality and my true nature slipped through the ethers like liquid silver.
I was free. I rode the waves of the solar system, swimming in these divine, cosmic frequencies.
I streaked past glistening stars, admiring their brilliance. As they twinkled, I realized they were calling to me, and an understanding dawned in my awareness—I knew I was part of these beautiful celestial beings. Another message began:
Welcome home. Be ye one with spirit. Know that you are all that is.
The tones from the crystal bowls began, sending their gentle vibrations into my body. I melted into a profound sense of peace and calm; I was in tune with the infinite, with divinity.
A whiff of roses caught my attention. I looked up and saw a small cluster of people approaching. Leading the entourage was Mother Mary with Mary Magdalene, Kwan Yin, and White Buffalo Calf Woman following close behind. Mother Mary placed a red rose behind my left ear, then she kissed me on my forehead.
The kiss sent me into a deeper state of relaxation, and I floated in a timeless, blissful void of peace. The scent of roses became stronger. I opened my eyes and saw an enormous pink quilt hovering near the top of the room. This was no ordinary quilt; it was made from thousands of pink roses. It drifted downward, covering the room in its beautiful, soft fragrance, then I heard these words:
This is a blanket of divinity, of love, of compassion, of protection. This is the love that a mother has for her children. It is sacred; it is holy.
I felt whole and complete as the pink roses blanketed the room. A rhythmic chant sounded in the distance, becoming louder by the second. The voices were chanting Malkuth, Malkuth, Malkuth, Malkuth. This single word echoed in the back of my mind. The chanting faded, making room for the following message to arrive:
Bring these sacred energies back home to the divine. Bring them back to Earth. Let goodness and mercy follow you all the days of your life.
We have come full circle. Let it be, let it be. Be one with all. You have entered the sacred circle of the divine.
The refrain to the Beatles’ song, Let it Be, played over and over in my mind: Mother Mary comes to me, speaking words of wisdom. As the words to the song slipped away, my physical body began to liquify.
My consciousness slipped into the floor and through the layers of the Earth until I reached the crystal core of our beautiful planet.
I realized that I had, indeed, come full circle—just as the message had indicated. I had gone from zipping past galaxies in the cosmos to becoming one with Earth’s core. I could want for no more.
I felt complete.
When the meditation ended, I shared my experience with my fellow meditation attendees. Yvette, who was playing the crystal bowls during the event, said something that made me smile. She reported the church had gathered two days before—in this same room—to honor Mary Magdalene. And the symbol of Mary Magdalene’s order? Pink roses! I realized the church’s ceremony to honor her was still actively present during our crystal bowl/healing meditation.
After the pink roses blanketed the room at the church, I heard chanting of a single word pronounced as “Malcoot.” When I documented it in my notebook, however, I wrote this odd-sounding word as “Malkuth.” Imagine my surprise when my after-the-fact research revealed it is, indeed, pronounced “Malcoot” and spelled exactly as I had written in my notes.
Those are interesting findings, but what does Malkuth mean? According to several online sources, Malkuth is the tenth sephirot in the Kabbalistic Tree of Life. I won’t pretend to understand the full meaning of that other than it’s important and sacred. I also learned that Malkuth means kingdom; it is a cosmic filter that connects to Earth.
Connecting Earth to the solar system? That’s exactly what I had experienced, beginning with celestial travels throughout the stars and ending with a voyage to the center of the Earth.
Malkuth is described as divine energy that comes down from the cosmos and finds expression in the Earthly plane. Our purpose as human beings is to bring that energy back around the circuit again and back up the Tree of Life. These descriptions of Malkuth matched key elements from the vision: flying through the cosmos, zipping around stars and galaxies, returning to and through Earth.
The message I received after the chanting mirrored this description. It was a perfect match, indicating we are to bring these sacred energies back home to the divine and to bring them back to Earth.
I’ll never get tired of discovering validations to my adventures into the nonphysical realms. It’s rooted in my training as a psychologist where data mining was a way of life, but I never expected it to play such a significant role in my journey into the world of spirit.
These after-the-fact confirmations encouraged me to trust the information I received. Each search engine hit added pieces to the mosaic that now defines my life. I don’t know when the puzzle will be completed, but until then, I’ll welcome these uncanny shards of knowledge. I’ll embrace each fragment along with the truth, mystery, and intrigue that each piece of the puzzle brings. I’ll piece it together, one mystical, magical moment at a time.
