Flower Me Imagery Journey of Free Will

Flower Me Imagery Journey of Free Will

By Alisa Battaglia, B.D, C.HT, EFT, TH

Imagine yourself as a flower seed uplifted by the kind energy of the wind, your host in seeking to pollinate upon a fertile ground. Imagine the optimal place where you would like to implant your roots. Where you would get plenty of fresh air, sunshine, rain, communion with other flowers and plants, shelter from the harsh weather and mostly, where you can expand your growing body without confinement. Imagine such a place and ask the wind to settle you there.

How does it feel to be upon a new foundation? Do you feel estranged or do you feel content to build your life amongst your place of choice? What kind of flower will you be? How wide and high will you grow? Will you nourish yourself in the sun building a strong body or will you cower from the light building a weak body? When you have determined who and how you wish to grow, imagine settling your roots deep into the earth drawing unto you the rich minerals to sustain your strength so that you may rise out of the earth to greet the sun.

Have you broken ground…a sprout of life? Imagine your roots moving deeper into the earth to found your growing body so that you may rise higher towards the sun.  Imagine the first unfurling of your leaf, the first outward expression of your unfolding beauty.  How do you hold your glorious stem?  Are you bent over or are you balanced and poised?  Imagine still many unfurling leaves…what color and what shape and texture are they?  What kind of insects do you attract?  Does your posture call forth a healthy repose that repels insects to chew on your lustrous leaves or do you stand unprotected as their host?

You know that a strong stem becomes hardy in harsh environing conditions and so you draw your roots deeper into the soil to cement your foundation. Having strived the season of experience you feel strong and balanced to flower forth.  Imagine the bud of your being flowering unto the root of your experience.  What holds the center of your petals?  Are you one flower or do you give birth to many?  How do you receive life? Do you give landing to butterflies, ladybugs and surrender to the work of the bees?

How brightly have you shone and how boldly do you grow?  Are you steadfast in your root creating a colony of flowers or have you withered and died within a season of expression?

The journey of your imaginary flower’s life is a creation of your own life.  Implant good thoughts, action and deeds in life and the possibilities become endless!

Mending the Cracked Womb Into Fullness, Sensuality & Creativity

All women are beautiful, there is no woman that is not, whether she argues with her mirror image is irrelevant…the fact remains that all women are beautiful. There is only a slight shift in perception between what we see as beauty and what we refer to as ugly. What we each consider to be beautiful is defined by a composite of thoughts that we have collected in our search for a definition of beauty and this composite is the image of the beautiful person we have in the back of our minds. It is from this composite belief or concepts that we match all images against in our definition of beauty. Everything is a concept until it is integrated. Often our sense of personal beauty comes from society’s definition of beauty, misaligning us from our actual truth, beauty, and love. The message to disconnect from our Essential Self and Source is integrated into what becomes our reality-ugliness!

When we judge ourselves against society’s standards and norms of beauty and mutilate our bodies to fit that distortion we in turn distort ourselves to reflect this distorted image. When essential or divine beauty is lost in the concepts carried in the head rather than of the heart, our unique beauty is fabricated into something false. It is this false concept of beauty that causes us to become unattractive in our imbalance. When we are unbalanced, bitter and angry our uniqueness and love cannot shine through and we become ugly fulfilling a self-prophecy in the way we think about ourselves.

Women must begin to see her beauty in terms of her innate power and unique beauty as a reflection of God-dess that she holds within her, rather than just a physical identification of her attractiveness. She must identify with her essential wholeness that in part comes from the creativity and power generated from her womb, her ability to create life and to nurture that life in hardship until that life can care for itself. The reproductive system is the power center that responds to the instinctual urge to procreate and the extra source of creative power in the female gender body that is foreign to the male. The extra life force lays within our ovaries that are whole in their life giving capacity to produce either sex – other whole females or changes to create a male. Within the female is both male and female simultaneously and thus, her power resides in both masculine and feminine strengths. Symbolically, women unlike men innately contain an inner phallic and a physical womb. This essential difference between the gender bodies makes it challenging for men to embrace his feminine aspect, which must be cultivated through discipline. The Taoists masters call the male practice of attending the feminine within, cultivating a spiritual embryo. Females are born with this life-giving capacity and it is already an inherent part of her nature.

The female does not have to use her reproductive powers to bear children, but she must be wise to understand that her power resides from her power to reproduce. Once the Soul (the inhabitant of the physical body) recognizes the endurance advantage of the female body its power resource can be used productively and creatively in ways mundane or sublime. A wise woman in touch with her essence will often seek advanced options and use her powerful forces to preserve her self by retaining or controlling her sexual power that she shares instead of giving it away. In place of forming a fetus from a fertilized egg, she uses her ovarian energy (Uterine Chalice) to raise her primordial sexual energy into the higher energy centers in the body for productive use. On a spiritual level, she gives birth. Literally, a rebirth or new life that brings confidence in controlling the powerful flow of creative energy within her that gives satisfaction and a higher sense of balance and harmony with the world.

Before cultivation of female sexual energy is possible, we must transform or neutralize our wounding experiences so that our generative region can re-gain sensitivity and open up. The vagina is like a flower and the wombs energy is the force that unfolds her. If her bud is outwardly forced to open too soon or roughly, fissures are created in her womb space and she may never blossom. Her womb energy is withdrawn seeping through the cracks of her fissured womb and her petals grow weak and shrivel from lack of feeling nourishment. She may never trust or feel safe again to unfold her glory. This is the deep wound that must be healed. When the womb is cracked it loses energy with capacity to hold energy at all, rendering the female powerless. When the womb is whole again it regains capacity and flexibility to hold and cultivate sexual energy. How can we begin to normalize the genital area to help restore wholesome sexuality? With Polarity Integration, the Infinity Body Awareness Technique and trust in your deepest self are the tools for integration that will help the feminine address personal issues on multi-dimensional levels.

Language of Heart

The Heart is the Living Map to Guide us into the Heart of the Living Mother. ~Alisa Battaglia

Love is the flower for which love is the honey ~ Victor Hugo

The language of the Universe is reflected through the Soul in its perspective of a unified consciousness that is imbued with the eternal trinity of the good, the beautiful and the true. The seat of the soul is the heart and therefore, the language of Soul is the language of the Heart and also the language of Nature, since the soul is bonded into the Earth’s magnetic body inasmuch that Spirit is anchored into the Pleroma, the electrical force of creation at the heart of the Galactic Center. This means that the language of the soul communicates multi-dimensionally through the nexus of the heart in wholeness. According to the attribute of our heart is the reflective action, our measure of selflessness or selfishness. The variety of those interactions reflects the consciousness of our hearts’ that creates our experiences and how we communicate them to others. When there is the simple awareness that pain, trauma and fear (anger) keeps us from being totally involved in the now we begin to understand volition and right action. We recognize that what does not stand in love within us needs to be worked out with a mind connected in the Spirit in Nature’s Intelligent Love.

Right action or volition is the primary force of motivation that distinguishes the personality of the Soul from the personality desires of the masked or automated self. The motivation of Soul energy can be felt as a feeling-intellect within the heart, the impulse of compassion that moves us from the thick walls of selfishness into an ever-widening inclusiveness with life. It is from that place that we honestly attempt to be authentic as we are motivated through courage, inspiration and energy – the territory of the unfolding petals of the inner heart.

With an open heart it becomes easier to fight our selfishness with generosity and we begin to understand the language our Soul impulse seeks to communicate to us. When we listen to these subtle directive inner promptings, we nourish our Soul desires and trust its guidance more into our lives instead of fearing and going against our Essential Self. Our Soul interfaces with our personality vehicle the more we honor others and ourselves by following through on our commitments, contribute our skills and knowledge in a loving and patient way. As we accept our selves, learn tolerance and unconditional love we raise the vibrations of our energy body attracting to us those of similar attributes of heart and essentially energies of higher quality vibrations that resounds outwardly into the world.

To invoke spiritual energy to help us heal or to show us our path of purpose, we ground into the womb of Nature, center our mind and expand our hearts. Then we simply state our needs, dreams and desires, forgive and then let go of our attachments and preconceived process of how things should be done. We release the tentacles of our mind that wraps around things we identify with (our conditioning) so that we may let things happen and surrender the “how” to the miracle-producing Universe. We listen and move in rhythm with the Divine Heart of the Mother where love flows in Equipoise lovingly bringing calm, receptivity, aliveness and joy into our lives. The purpose of ensoulment is a life in aliveness, never angst, fear or derision.
