When A Volcano Talks To You, It May Be Prudent To Listen
As most of you know, I usually channel a collective consciousness that calls itself the Heart Center of the Heart Center of the Universe. Now and then, I channel other collective consciousnesses, including animals, trees, and celestial beings. Today, as I meditated on a great pahoehoe lava flow at the edge of the blue Hawaiian waters, I was graced with a consciousness that was the heart of the Big Island of itself. I was not sure whether to share it, but if the volcano is going to talk, it seems prudent to listen…
We are not accustomed to words
We’ll use the best we can
This is vibration
This is the magnetic field you speak of
Understand how close you are here to the earth
People call the earth “gaia”
This is not what we feel like
“Gaia” is a word superimposed on these energies
In the dualistic masculine/feminine nature
It is not our word
It is not a bad word…
So what is a volcano?
What is a volcano but a visible expression
Of the blood of the earth?
You see, here you feel this rough, unformed, forming, expanding
We want to say “hungry” but that’s not quite it (laughs)
We want you to know our heart
We want you to know this rawness
That is so forgotten
Even with this crystalline structure
This shimmering light
That everyone is focused upon
We want you to remember that heat is a part of it
It is not all about rising
It is not all bubblicious
There is viscosity
There is gravity
Not in the sense of it bringing you back down to earth
But in the way that the spaces are filled
Not all with gossamer light
But with radiant heat
We want you to feel the power of magma
We want you to know our heft
And how do we relate to these energies
Of what you consider more effervescent?
What about the rock that you sit on now?
The warmth and solidity
The support that you feel?
And the water that is splashing at your ankles
And the sunlight that is penetrating your skin
And the air that is sifting through your mouth and your nose
How do these all relate to each other?
And the invisible energetic structures?
We want you to celebrate form
We invite you to beautify the spectrum of creation
The way that we interact
Is through the impulse of creation
Which expresses along a spectrum
And as you celebrate form
We invite you to stretch so that you see the full spectrum
That is contained in everything
And so when you feel yourself supported
By this magma cooled by air
That you stretch in your mind’s eye
To see the whole of creation
We know that you must give names
Or that you think you must give names
Or that it is fun to give names
So that you can trade these pictures
But we invite you to come back
To the purpose of these trades
What is it you want to do with these pictures?
What is it you want to do with this naming?
With this, what you are calling “understanding?”
Understanding is instantaneous
It happens in what you call your heart
So what is your next step
With this understanding?
Are you going to form and create and combine and explore?
Are you going to construct?
Are you going to connect?
Or are you going to put these pictures
And name these things
And put them in little glass bottles to point to and compare?
Are you going to throw them at one another?
As you quest for understanding, bring yourself back
To what that understanding will bring you
We invite you to be builders
And what we mean by that
Is to bring form, ever shifting changing form
To your understanding
To not put them in glass bottles
But to bring them out to be explored
As we create the magma, and the rocks
And you walk along the lava paths
And explore the shoreline
Don’t enshrine it
Here we are ever creating
We invite you to be builders of connections
Between these forms you name and beyond
As the magma continually forms
And new shorelines
So can you continually form
New shorelines for your heart
Again these shapes you name
And what can you build with each other?
And so take the time to be supported
By the structures that you love
Take the time to celebrate their form
And allow yourself to see the layers
And the possibilities
Between the elements
Between the building blocks of life
Between the dimensions
We come to you from the center
Of what you call earth
The heart center
Of the heart center
Of the universe
In molten form
