I dream of “I Ching” and a Bat blessing


The past week has been filled with so many mysterious signs and synchronicities. I believe the change in seasons is beginning to clear away the old and cluttered energies storied in my auric field and also the “super” Full Moon recently opened up my third eye. I love the feeling of being in the zone. I have not only been extra connected intuitively, but I’ve also had a burst of creativity.

Since I have been on vacation resting and spending time being creative, it only makes sense that I would feel more opened. The universe has really been speaking to me because I feel like I am in the process of making changes. I underwent a type of rebirth last week, mentally, physically and spiritually letting go of the old and worn out. I was finally able to let go of the Winter and all the slow, dull and stuffy energies connected with it.

My first dramatic sign came in the form of a dream the other night. In the dream I was in this room filled with the softest creamy rose colored light, in an almost mediative state. I hazily remember sitting cross legged watching a board or piece of paper or some neutral surface.

As I watched I noticed that a strange symbol was forming. One line at a time it began to take shape, until finally there were three distinct lines one stacked on the other to form a square. Then instantly it was gone and another began to form, again one line after another. Three distinct black lines stacked up, but this time the bottom line had a break in the middle of it. It too disappeared and I woke up.

Confused as to what I just saw, I quickly opened my journal (which is always by the bedside) and drew out the symbols. Next to each one I wrote a question mark. These symbols meant nothing to me, yet I felt very drawn to them. Still very tired I went back to sleep.When I woke I pulled open the journal and stared at the two symbols trying to understand them and then I remembered a woman I once met who read the I Ching or Book of Change.

I immediatly googled “I Ching” to see the symbols and possibly find their meanings. I wasn’t sure what I would find or if the symbols I dreamt about were even I Ching. To my surprise the very first I Ching symbol, Symbol #1 looked exactly like the first I dreamt of. Three distinct black lines one stacked on the other in the form of a square.

This symbols is named Chi’en “Force” or “Creativity”. This symbol represents the creative potential of the universe being at your  finger tips. It belongs to people who walk the worlds between Heaven and Water. Basically it it is a sign of someone who taps  into the creative spirit of the Universe through intuition, prayer, mediation and other spiritual means.

I was filled with awe at what I found. The first symbol Chi’en was totally in synch with what I had been experiencing. How powerful to dream of this symbol without ever seeing it before. So then I looked up the next symbol. Again I had chills when I found it listed. Exactly the same as in the dream.

This symbol was titled Sun or Ground. What an extremely powerful revelation. I read that the symbol represents the maturity of seeds planted. The maturation of ideas and intentions. Signifying joyous, gentle and nurturing energy that hangs over you like an atmosphere, affecting your emotions and thoughts. It can also be laying to rest the old to make room for the new.

After reading this I was not only baffled, but chilled and moved. How powerful to receive such insight. For me to be experiencing such a turbulent time and to feel as if I was transforming on so many levels and then to receive this was totally comforting, not to mention healing.

As if this weren’t already enough for me, I recieved another message. It came to me last night. After being out all day giving things away to the thrift store (boxes and boxes of old clohtes, etc) I came home to do laundry. I load up my basket and headed to the basment of the building I live in. It was late and I knew that I was the last person to enter the building so I was trying to be quiet.

I loaded the washer and head upstairs. As I crept up the steps to my floor I noticed the shadow of a bird on the ground. I assumed it came from the window looking out into the bamboo, but then I looked up and to my surprise their was a bat flying frantic in circles around and around. Startled I ducked down and made my way into my apartment. I peeped out again to make sure it was real.

I was very confused because their wasn’t a window opened or a door and I know that I  was the last person to come in. I had went down the steps not even 5 minuts before and  their was no bat in sight. I called my neighbor and asked her to call the landlord. They  told us to open the door and window so it would eventually fly out.

my neighnor opened the window and door and then came over to tell me. Her and I  chatted for probably a minute before we went out into the hall to see how our batty visitor  was and it had disappeared. In only a few minutes it had found its way out. Gone as fast  as it came.

Instantly I felt the medicine of the bat settle into my soul. I knew that he  had mysteriously appeared to give me a sign. Part of me felt like his message was that of  transformation and learning to live by the night, learning to live by my instinctual side. And again learning to allow myself to be free.

I looked up the symbolism of a bat flying into a house… and found that it is a sign of rebirth, transformation and a sign of good luck and blessing on new ventures or possible moves. Again, spot on. I had to send a mental “thank you” to this brave creature who found a way to deliver this much needed message.

I have been feeling the need for a little clarity on my path lately and to have all of these wonderful wisdoms come to me from the Universe really eased my mind about any possible changes that may come. It also reminded me how powerful our Guides and Angels can be when we invite their insight into our lives.

Do you have any similar stories to share? Did anything enlightening happen to youduring the “super” full moon?

All the best,

Shaheen
