Tonight was another heartfelt seance! I (Hennie) began our seance with a healing meditation as beautiful mezzo-forte music played in the background for our tuning in, and soon after Ciska requested to take the lead with a powerful shamanic visualization where we all felt an intense connection of oneness through an enormous ball and later with our favorite trees.
As soon as my healing meditation was complete, Ciska first asked each one of us to visualize a ball that had the names of our loved ones in it, which were accompanied with the Light and Love Energies for healing and harmony. She also instructed us to put our hands together as if we were praying and then to open our right hands perpendicularly downwards in order to gesture a lotus flower in front of us. When we all did that, she directed us to connect all our hand-formed lotuses using our thumbs with the group members’ thumbs next to us as if we were in the same room so that we could all form a spiritual circle. At this point, she guided us to create one enormous, bright halo-colored ball with our individual balls. She immediately prompted us to hold it up using our interconnected (hand) lotuses. And as we simultaneously raised our lotuses, our intention was that we were connected as one with the Oneness of the Light and Love before sending our loved ones’ names into the universe along with the glowing and immeasurable ball. We did this so that other people/entities throughout the universe could do the same—connect as one with the Oneness of the Light and Love. We were allowed to give this energy to ourselves, too, by placing our hands on our hearts.
Some seconds afterwards, Ciska instructed us to visualize a large tree of our choice that had to be so large that we could no longer see other trees. Then, she told us to sit beside it, make contact with it, and ask if we could use its wisdom. After taking a few deep breaths, she said that we were able to lie down next to it and to visualize going through its roots and into the earth to become one with the tree. As we became one with the tree, she guided us to follow the path to the area where we come from in order to make contact with the people we know from the past. Then, she allowed us to go deeper into the earth through the roots and take the time needed to be with them. “Look, hear, and feel what they have to say to you,” Ciska explained. After these instructions, she told us to stand in front of the tree in order to feel its energy in the now before she continued: “[The tree] can teach you and tell you who you are. Breathe deeply and feel free. When you're ready, take a few steps back and then look up. Walk around [it] and take a good look at all the branches. Imagine this is your future. Look at the possibilities and opportunities that are available. Open up to the universe, the sun, and the Light. Feel present in the now and the things to come. Take the time to contemplate the circle of life. We are all the same as the tree, space, and time. You are also the strength and energy of the tree. Some of its roots in the earth are yours. Now that you have seen and felt the circle of life, thank the tree for being there for you. And then walk back on the path from which you came.”
As we all came back to our senses, that’s when Ciska told us that some weeks ago she already had the feeling that she had to do this particular shamanic exercise when it was her turn. The energy generated was very powerful, as you realized above, and natural in its existence like a flower coming out of a bud. And as the other sitters were about to express their experiences of the intensity of the seance’s energy, Ciska revealed to the group that her first profound experience with the oneness of trees was twenty years ago with a beech tree of which spiritually represents protection as well as connection to spiritual dimensions, and that is why she immediately felt safe and as one with it.
During the discussion and evaluation of Ciska's powerful shamanic visualization, Alexandra said she was no longer in her room but "somewhere up there”. She also experienced a lot of joy, saw many beautiful trees, yet her preference was “a huge olive tree". She also saw many relatives of ours and could feel the connections well. And she even saw her deceased son and paternal grandfather who gave her the message to “always stay positive,” and that goes for all of us! Ingrid “felt so much love and compassion” during the journey through the roots of the tree she selected. Because of those feelings, she was deeply touched by this experience and “thought it was very beautiful”. She also got a strong feeling that everything is possible in life, which made her “feel happy”. As for me, I felt my deceased relatives conveyed to me the joy that reigns there in Summerland. At the beginning of the meditation, I could feel the presence of the tree very well as if I were one with it. Even when I was asked to visualize a tree with branches and leaves and to sit in the now, it became very quiet around me; I could hear the wind well and even perceive various smells. I thought that was special. And as I was looking to the future, I saw many connections come my way: one right after another they arched while moving toward me in the colors of the rainbow! “I feel these future connections are going to apply to all of us.” The moment I uttered those words, Samantha picked up on the same message, as well. Top! During the visualization, she received a message from her ancestors. “Be creative,” they said to her, “and most of all, love yourself. Also, create the things you want because that brings joy that you can automatically pass on. And know you can get anything you want in life.” On the tree’s branches, Samantha saw various items, including a lot of fruit and a spectacular ring that was offered to her as a present. While the sun was shining, she noticed beautiful double rainbows. In short, then, everything is possible in the future! And that applies to all of us (again). She also found the meditation/ visualization particularly powerful and loving.
The seance ended with the feeling of the present as well as the chimes of gratitude and love from the group members. And of course, it was nice to hear what everyone experienced during Ciska’s shamanic visualization. After listening to everyone’s experiences, I know the common thread is that as long as we stay positive and present within ourselves, we can make anything possible. We couldn't end it better.
And Ciska, thank you so much for the wonderful guidance!
