Blog 2: Exploring the Imbalance in Defenselessness

For the month of February, 2022 - as an exploration into self love - I decided to keep as open to anything and everything as I possibly could. I was still under the influence of The Lovers card - the union of masculine and feminine, and the union of duality in harmony.

One morning, I was staring at my screen lost in thought, with diffused vision, when I saw a black shadow move in the corner of my left eye. Shivers ran through my body and I knew there was something I needed to hear. I needed to meditate and listen. The next day, I sat down with my journal. Soon I started to write: Rest up, build up energy, you’ll need it in the next few days. There will be a dump of energy right above you that’s ready to drop, as soon as there is an opening. This one is different; it’s all at once, and the body just needs to be ready for it.

It left me with an unsettling feeling: Why? What was it for? I closed my eyes and a clear vision came:

I was standing in the middle of train tracks. It was winter and dusk. In the distance,

around a slight bend around a mountain, I could see and hear a train coming

straight towards me. I could relate, in that moment, to a deer staring into bright

headlights, incapable of moving. The vision stopped before the train got to me and

the understanding seeped in: not only did I need the energy to move out of the

way, but also to jump onto the moving train.

Few more days go by. It was Sunday and I sat down to do my card spread for the week. It soon became clear - the train was here, meditate! I put my headphones on and did some breathwork. I relaxed but I didn’t quite make it to the point of stillness that I usually go to, when I saw the headlights within my mind:

There was a back and forth between headlights and an eye. Then the eye took over

and grew, penetrating and settling into my head. Flashes started: the Romanian

Sphinx, the Egyptian Pyramids, mountain tops, eagles soaring in the sky … I couldn’t

keep up any longer; the images were very fast. My eyes fluttered inside my head,

my body filled with light. Then, a man-like figure, silver/flamey, with arms stretched

out and arched back was trying to emerge from itself. I knew it was me, somehow.

It emerged and the image morphed into a surge of energy that traveled down my throat, making it throb. It continued to my heart and I felt my chest shake. The vibration dampened as it traveled to my solar plexus, then slowed way down as it reached my legs. It was done.

What was that? I took a minute to come back into my body.

Somehow it was clear that the male energy within myself - suppressed my whole life - has finally emerged. It made sense; my entire right side of the body had suffered all kinds of issues since my late teens, yet this understanding hasn’t dawned on me. I always thought it was the feminine energy I needed to work on. As I sat there mesmerized, with a blank mind, a bigger realization came forth, and it was even more beautiful:

I no longer needed duality to point out or force these lessons/understanding through.

It’s very clear now that the act of forgiving is all about “me”. It is about my relationship, or better yet, my attachment to whatever entangled me into an energetic blockage. It’s a conditioning, an
