I have had Atlantis on the mind lately--quite literally. As that crazy X-class flare shot off the other night, I felt something really release in my left brain in the region beyond my eyebrow and eye down to my nose. It felt like a boat that had been anchored down suddenly was being freed and floated to the top.
I have also had some crazy dreams with names in them that were meant to stick out...(my dreams are very symbolic with the names). I met a man named "Ethan Hawk" I know, I know...he is an actor. (Actually I didn't know but my husband told me so afterwards) I'm really bad at knowing actor's names. But Ethan means "a gift from an island" and Hawk is a "messenger" between the spiritual and material realms. I also met Orlando Bloom in another dream (standing next to Gandolf the Grey). No, I haven't watched any of the Lord of the Rings movies recently..i mean in a long long time. But the following day I saw a commercial for one! But anyway "Orlando" means "famous land"...so it's kind of like i got the signs for 1) a gift from an island brought by a messenger and 2) a birth of a famous land. And I keep having visions and dreams of Atlantis and blue people...weird...and then there is the tying together of Atlantis and Mu/Lumeria...still working that on that one.
To me places are also metaphors for our bodies, so when a place "disappears" as Atlantis is said to have done, then it means to me that there is a piece of ourselves also missing.
Anyway, here is what "Atlantis" felt like to me:
In the bottom of an ocean
is a tropical location
Whose purpose has long been thrown
In the depths of emotion
is revealed to the commotion of
searching for the heavenly throne
It's beginning to resurface
see the convergence
of the sky and the Earth once more
No one can seal its structure
By force or conjecture
Back down to the rocky sea floor
Atlantis is rising
it's not surprising
When you live in the rhythm of being
Rise above limitation
Use the eyes of the soul for the seeing
Whether its presence resides
In past or in this time
May be a fruitless debate to consider
The question is this
How to exist within bliss
And shine as the stars in night shimmer.
