Have you been dreaming of things in the past? Perhaps you are dreaming of people in your life with whom you haven’t seen in years, or of ones you loved yet those relationships have completed? I certainly have been having these types of dreams! Snippets of times past that have no relationship to each other, yet have come into my awareness during dream time. During these moments of new awareness of past situations, I am sensing the firing of a kiln of sorts, that is burning away the last vestiges of these past ways of being…and this being is observing newly…a new firing of being is coming into form.
Working with the fire element with the Curiodyssey triad has been an amazing experience for me, as my being, as I am coming to learn, is happily steeped in the earth and water elements. I could play forever in these two very visceral and comforting elements that show me daily how much of them my being is! Yet the fire element is very new…and I am tentatively reaching out now to explore all of the beauty and magic this element has to offer. Many cylinders are beginning to fire up now.
Beryl introduced the term ‘crucible’, and that we are both our own crucible and in our own crucible…a word that has three meanings: “A container of metal or refractory material employed for heating substances to high temperatures; Metallurgy. a hollow area at the bottom of a furnace in which the metal collects; and a severe, searching test or trial.” I am very excited about discovering the crucible within my own body, mind, spirit. I am seeing that I AM a crucible of sorts…capable of burning off that which does not serve in this or other lifetimes to then light these cylinders with a new type of fire…the kind that keeps us burning brightly, with our spirits soaring and shining in the warmth of its glow. Yes…I know…I am feeling this new/old ‘corny charm’ because of the time of year. Yet I have always been this way…for ages…my pure sweet old soul longs for the corny charm that these fires I am setting inside of me are showing me, as I burn away the dross of what was expected to see the purity of what remains as steady and consistent about my soul essence.
In our Curiodyssey fire element event this next weekend, we are going to play with discovering ourselves as a crucible…we ARE a metapoint…a crucible that is the container for who and what we are and what we have brought to be in this particular lifetime. And…we are burning away the old to light the fires of the new. I am excited to explore my being in this element. Am I a goddess of some sort? A mythical creature come to life (I am leaning towards this one because dragons are playing so clearly in my field lately), a tree, a cauldron to hold all of the magic (ooh…this one calls to me also!) What might you be as your own crucible? What cylinders are now firing in your systems? What new fires are being lit in this winter season approaching that you are just now uncovering and lighting for yourself?
We would love to have you come explore your crucible with us! We are making our own dough to then mold our own crucible together…the dough can be regular air-dry dough, or…edible…imagine that! I am making both! The fire element event for Curiodyssey is this Sunday, December 6th at 9:00 AM PST. Join us!
