Again we had a wonderful evening with an intense healing session and a creative yin-and-yang meditation provided by Ciska. After the evidential EVP and personal mediumship messages that Lonneke shared with us, a short yet powerful prayer meditation began that allowed for an abundance of healing to be given directly to each one of us. Then Ciska took over as soon as the introductory music finished where we were able to release our two colored pencils or markers on our A4 sheets that had two opposing but connecting spirals (as the ones below)
The design's spirals have two sides, left and right, representing the female and male sides in all of us that need to be as balanced as possible. This duality within us, and obviously this design, has a strong connection to the ancient Chinese philosophy of the yin and yang as well as the Hindus’ principles of Shakti and Shiva and likewise Carl Jung’s psychology of the anima and animus, all of which emphasizing our eternal balance of emotional and psychological health.
To prepare for Ciska’s Feminine-and-Masculine Spiral Meditation, we had to copy the engaging spiral designs that Cisca had sent by email earlier in the week and determine by ourselves which two colored pencils or markers we wanted to use, one for the left side and the other for the right side. And just before we started the evening’s assignment, we were allowed to take a picture of our fingertips pointing to the center of the spiral, with the hope that the energy of our fingers would be visible (if this is the case, we will publish the photos). To initiate the meditative attunement, Ciska instructed us that we had to go through each spiral with a different colored pencil or marker at our own pace and that we would begin from left to right if we identify as females but the reverse if we identify as males. We had to do this as we followed our deepest feelings of whatever came up within our memories that we may have experienced as a person, whether as a female or male, in this life as we colored each spiral with only one color.
After a number of musical numbers, we were allowed to switch spirals. For me (Hennie), this became the left spiral. Now, I had to use the other colored pencil; this color as well as this side signified the feelings and realizations in my life on the feminine side of my being. Those who identify as women in our our group were on the right spiral at this point and focused on what they achieved with their masculine side. After all, we all have the duality of yin and yang in us! As we completed each side, we to took pictures of our fingertips above this spiral once again. All this was happening as we relaxed into the task as well as our thoughts while beautiful musical numbers were playing in the background. And when both sides had been colored, then Ciska told us to merge the two color all the way to the center circle of the diagram where the feminine and masculine/ yin and yang met, while creating and putting this merging of feelings on paper. Once we did this, we took more pictures of our fingertips over our newly created, unique designs. Finally to close the task, we sang the German song "It's good the way it is".
Then it was time for the evaluation.
Lonneke saw her feminine side as her strongest side while her masculine side flowed together with it. She colored the spirals beautifully with the colors merging in the center as long, graceful sea waves.
Aleida used the color pink color for the female side and the color green for the male side. Such happy colors! In the middle circle, she drew pink hearts and connected them with green stripes. She also drew beautiful flowers, too. She found her feminine side to be stronger than her masculine side and thought it was “okay” since it represents who she is now.
I (Hennie) drew blue and black lines myself, and while I did that in the first part, my whole life flashed before me with good and bad memories. But in general, I had a good feeling about the way it went and also how nicely it appeared once I completed it. In the second part where I looked at my feminine side, I had the feeling that the energy was quite hard. It has softened over time but could be even softer. When we were in the middle of the picture I saw a beautiful white light and suddenly many children were around me. That gave me the feeling of transparency and freedom. A whole new, joyful path awaits ahead of me, I feel.
With Ingrid, just like with me, it was a “big film” (a movie scene) that flew by in her thoughts. In addition, a lot of sadness came up that she would rather not feel. Also, it felt very empty for her even though she tried to do everything right. “Something had to be done,” she uttered. After that she started coloring everything, and everything became more and more cheerful, using red to express the feminine side of the design and green for the male side. When the music ended, she felt like it shouldn't have been. In any case, it was a lot of memories that came to her all at once. She also had the feeling that she was not alone. “It was a tough fight, yet I didn't shy away from the difficulties,” she stated.
For Alexandra, the session felt like a great healing and relief. She used the colors orange and green, as she colored she smelled the scents of an orange and a watermelon, since her colored pencils were scented! What she drew in the circle must represent electricity. Shocking events. The reality of life. “We go through a pain that sometimes feels like electricity. It changes us through the experiences we lived. Then we have to look for healing because we often only think about ourselves. Our ego then starts playing tricks. When we receive the healing we realize with a shock that we are not alone. And [at that point] we also want to heal others because we know what the pain feels like.” This is what she felt when she was coloring.
Eva was unable to participate due to circumstances, but she will color everything and share her findings at a later date.
Ciska had chosen the feminine color yellow. It all felt very busy for her. She filled everything up with triangles and suns as the process actually covered her entire life in thoughts. She is a twin; however, she and her twin went on each own’s way in life. Occasionally they crossed paths, but they were too different to get along well. This lasted until she saw the Light on her spiritual path when she then arrived at the gate on her tek.
For those of us who were able to participate, Ciska presented us a meditation that did not only allow us to be artistically creative by demonstrating our eternal female-and-male dualities but also to be emotionally expressive of our cathartic, compassionate, and accepting feelings toward our intense memories, for these life experiences and lessons, as challenging and painful and even shocking as they may have been, have made us who we are today as well as believers of the unconditional love and guidance of the Light and all that It entails.
As always, Lonneke and of course Ciska, thank you for this beautiful and healing seance gathering.
