43. Soul Journey – Root Chakra – Kabbalah/Tree of Life – Oneness

The Kabbalah represents the mystical journey of the soul as it descends through the Tree of Life to manifest into human form and then transcends to spiritual oneness. The diagram is revealed within the Flower of Life in the heart chakra.

Each circle on the Tree of Life is called a Sefirot (emanation of divine will). There are ten Sefirot that mirror each other as they reveal and receive information for the soul. The Sefirot challenge and support the soul as it travels up and down the Tree, providing insights or paths. The left branch represents the mysteries in the darkness; the right are the forces of light. The trunk is the neutral, self-giving one.

The task is to know one’s self as a human grounded on earth.  From this place of awareness, one can embrace their humanness and travel up the Tree of Life to reunite and remember being an infinite soul.  This is called the “way of the return.” When the psyche/soul attains Da’at, it achieves unity consciousness and is able to comprehend the infinite nature of Ein Sof, the infinite space beyond the Tree.

The Tree of Life diagram was inspired by the seven-branched menorah described in Exodus 25: 31-40. It is based on an almond tree representing the seven “watchers” or planets: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Jupiter, Mars, Venus and Saturn. This can be interpreted as the seven chakras of divine light within.

Message: Multiple paths are in front of you now. You are being asked to make a choice. Remember that each path comes with its own lesson; therefore, there is not a right or wrong path. Choose a path that feels right for you.  If you are in doubt, follow your heart and you will find your path.

“We do not see things as they are. We see them as we are.”  -Talmud –

“He made the menorah of pure gold. He made the menorah of beaten work. Its base, its shaft, its cups, its buds, and its flowers were of one piece with it. There were six branches going out of its sides: three branches of the menorah out of its one side, and three branches of the menorah out of its other side: three cups made like almond-blossoms in one branch, a bud and a flower, and three cups made like almond-blossoms in the other branch, a bud and a flower: so for the six branches going out of the menorah. In the menorah were four cups made like almond-blossoms, its buds and its flowers; and a bud under two branches of one piece with it, and a bud under two branches of one piece with it, and a bud under two branches of one piece with it, for the six branches going out of it. Their buds and their branches were of one piece with it. The whole thing was one beaten work of pure gold.”

44. Soul Body – Sacral Chakra – Auric Field – Oneness

The soul body emanates a unique electromagnetic field that can be sensed by others. This field surrounding the body is often referred to as an auric field. Auras are interconnected with our chakras and our emotional state at any given moment. The word “aura” has its roots in the ancient Greek language meaning wind, breeze or breath. Some believe that our aura changes color depending on our mood.

A person’s aura is often interpreted as a blend of energetic colors that fall within the electro-magnetic spectrum of white light. Auras are connected to our energetic anatomy. We each “vibe” with our own unique frequency and vibration.

Some people can see or sense a person’s aura. Auras can range between a silvery white to a golden white color. Sometimes a crystal aura can be perceived, which would give the impression of a prism effect surrounding the body. Auras have the ability to expand and contract depending on the person and their environment. We can consciously make ourselves small by contracting our energy field and becoming less conspicuous. We can also command attention or protect ourselves by consciously expanding our aura to increase our personal space. This sense of energetic space around a person is easily felt by others, even if they are not aware of it. Our aura reminds us that we have an energy body that is separate yet interconnected with our physical body. This energy body is also called the subtle body or soul body. Each chakra is unique and interconnected within our soul body.

Message: Trust your vibes whether they are internal or external. Become more aware of your surroundings and adjust your energy accordingly. Use your ability to expand or contract your energy field as you see fit. This awareness will heighten your senses during a time of transition.

“It is not the body, nor the personality, that is the true self. The true Self is eternal. Even on the point of death we can say to ourselves, my true Self is free. I cannot be contained.” – Marcus Aurelius –

45. Soul Spectrum

Soul Spectrum

45.  Soul Spectrum  – Solar Plexus – Seed of Life – Oneness

The soul spectrum refers to all the colors of our chakras that come together to form what is known as the light or energy body. The light body is invisible to the human eye, yet can be felt through subtle touch.  Light is created by the Sun that generates an electro-magnetic spectrum of light made up of various frequencies and wavelengths of energy. Together these waves represent less than 5% of all matter. Within this 5% only 2.3% is seen as visible white light. Visible light is created by bands of monochromatic light or spectral colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet.

Overlying rays of colored light reform into white light. Higher frequencies create invisible light known as ultra violet or uber violet, meaning above violet. UVA & UVB rays are invisible to the naked eye, as well as X-rays and Gamma rays. Lower frequencies such as microwaves, radar, television and radio waves fall under what we call infrared or below red. Heat is registered in this lower frequency as well.  Black is the absence of light or is created by a saturation of colored light.

Message: It is time for you to widen your perspective on life by seeing that nothing is just black or white.  Between light and dark there are an endless variety of tones and colors that are reminding you to honor all viewpoints and all living beings.  Explore the full spectrum of possibilities and be open to all options available to you. Honor the darkness as well as the light, for both will help you radiate with confidence and love.  Connect with your luminous nature and let your colorful soul shine!  Awaken to your truth as a radiant and colorful soul!

“Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Soul Essence

46. Soul Essence – Heart Chakra – Flower of Life – Oneness

The Soul’s Essence is found within the heart and the Flower of Life matrix. This essence is shared through the silent language of our soul. The essential nature of being human is to share our life with others. Our soul’s essence transcends ordinary reality by relaying emotions without words. Flowers have often represented the silent language of the soul for they awaken the essence of love and wonder within us. The language of flowers was used to convey secret messages that could not be spoken. These cryptic messages often pertained to love and lovers.

All flowers have a language, but roses hold a special place in our hearts. They are ancient symbols of love and beauty. The word “rose” means pink or red. Roses have been identified with goddesses such as Isis (Egyptian), Aphrodite (Greek) and Venus (Roman). The essence of a rose is the most precious essential oil on Earth. It takes 30 roses to make one drop of oil.  Rose oil is deeply connected to the soul and has been called the Mystic Rose. Prayer beads in Hindu, Buddhist, Christian and Islamic traditions have been created from crushed rose petals. The name rosary comes from the word rosarium or “rose garden.”

Message: Visualize your soul as a flower by allowing yourself to blossom and be seen. Listen to the silent language of your soul and see that in the center it is filled with love. Your soul’s essence is to be seen and shared. Life is a reflection of you and you are the one creating that reflection. Embrace your soul’s essence as you release, renew, rebirth and rejoice in the life and love you are sharing!

“If you’ve never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom.” – Terri Guillemets


Soul Essence (Language of Roses)

  1. Red Rose – True Love
  2. Orange Rose – Desire and Passion
  3. Yellow Rose – Friendship and Apology
  4. Green Rose – Fertility and Miracles
  5. Blue Rose – Mystery and Intrigue
  6. Violet Rose – Love at First Sight, Enchantment

  8. Pink Rose – Love, Gratitude, Appreciation

47. Soul Sound

Soul Sound

47. Soul Sound – Throat Chakra – Sri Yantra Aum – Oneness

Sound is the spoken language of our soul, created by the vibrations in our throat chakra. Each chakra resonates to a sound or vibration when vocalized as a mantra (prayer).  When you vocalize a sound such as a Bija (seed) mantra you connect with the energetic vibration of that chakra. The Sri Yantra is the visual form of the mantra AUM. AUM is seen as the essence of creation and oneness, within Hindu & Buddhist philosophy. The Sri Yantra represents the merging of Shiva (male) and Shakti (female) energies to achieve spiritual union between the mind, body and soul. This awakens our awareness of the creative life force energy within us.

Vibration can be felt without being heard. Our breath creates vibration, our heartbeat creates vibration. These vibrations resonate within us, connecting us with the resonance of earth and the universe. The science of Cymatics and Schumann’s Resonance explores these vibrations as eltromagnetic waves or frequencies of invisible energy that affect us and our world.  We are most at peace when our heart beats in rhythm with nature because we are, in fact, interconnected with it. The advent of electronics has filled our “airspace” with invisible frequencies that can influence these connections.

Message: Take time to listen to the sounds in your life and feel if they align with your soul. Go out in nature, without electronic devices, and connect with the rhythms you share with all that is around you. Sound is vibration and we are vibrational beings.  Find your soul’s voice and use it for good.

“Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue.” – Plato

48. Soul Tree

Soul Tree

48. Soul Tree – Third Eye – Oneness – Cosmic Tree

The Soul Tree reminds us to see with our heart instead of our eyes. By seeing the world through the lens of our soul we can see that we are interconnected to all. We are no longer separated by the stories we hold in our minds but by what we feel in our hearts. The Cosmic Tree of oneness reminds us that this connection we seek is forever within us and around us.

This search for connection inspired the epic stories seen in the stars. Homer (Greek Poet – c. 850 BCE) is credited with writing the lliad and the Odyssey. He created a pantheon of mythical deities who ruled over the heavens and earth. These Titans & Olympians became known as living deities who “watched” over us.

The Cosmic Tree also known as the Axis Mundi or World Tree run through the center of Earth, connecting us to the center of the Milky Way. The Anima Mundi or World Soul connects us to the universal soul. This mythical tree of our soul anchors us to stars and planets within the vastness of space. The seven planets seen with the naked eye, were known as the “seven wandering ones” who watched over us. For this reason, the number seven became sacred and inspired the seven days of the week as well as the seven colors of the rainbow. Each planet is named for the deity that inspired it.

Seven Planets – Seven Days of the Week – Deities

  1. Moon/Monday – Moon’sDay: Seed (German-Mani) (Roman-Luna/Diana) (Greek-Artemis/Selene)
  2. Mars/Tuesday – Tyr’sDay: War (Norse-Tyr/Tiwaz son of Odin, Wodan) (Roman-Mars) (Greek-Aries) (Mesopotamia-Nergal)
  3. Mercury/Wednesday – Wodan’sDay: Father/Wise (Norse-Wodan/Irmin/Odin/Yggr) (Roman-Mercury) (Greek-Hermes)
  4. Jupiter/Thursday – Thor’sDay: Sky/Strong (Norse-Thor) (Roman-Jupiter) (Greek-Zeus)
  5. Venus/Friday – Freya’sDay: Mother/Love (Norse-Freya) (German-Eostre) (Roman-Venus) (Greek-Aphrodite)
  6. Saturn/Saturday – Saturn’sDay: Time (Roman-Saturn) (Greek-Cronus)
  7. Sun/Sunday – Sun’sDay: Light (German-Sunna) (Latin-Sol) (Roman-Helios) (Greek-Apollo)

Message: Look deeper into the roots of your present situation to uncover hidden powers that will help you move forward. Know that you are not alone as you consciously decide what feels right to your soul.

“All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree.” ‐ Albert Einstein 

49. Soul Light

Soul Light

49. Soul Light – Crown Chakra – Tree of Light – Oneness

Soul light connects us to our source. The Axis Mundi (World Tree) connects us to the center of the Milky Way. The Anima Mundi (World Soul) connects us to the universal soul. Our source of light comes from the Sun, which is a star. It is anchored by a mythical tree that connects us to the stars while we live on the earth

As humans studied the night sky they observed a stationary star in the Northern Hemisphere that other stars rotated around. This star became known as the North Star or Pole Star, based on the fact that trees were used as poles. This discovery inspired calendars, time, astronomy, geometry etc.

Polaris, our current Pole Star, will come closest to the center of our actual North Pole in 2100. Polaris will then slowly begin to move away as another Pole Star will take its place. Pole Stars change over a period of 25,800 years (also known as a Platonic Year). This is caused by the earth’s rotational wobble known as the precession of the equinoxes. The constellation Draco (dragon), contained the previous pole star known as Thuban. It inspired many mythological stories of dragons and feathered serpents that shine a light into our shared history.

Message: You are a being of light that is interconnected with everything around you. Radiate your light to illuminate your life and your world. The source of your light comes from your soul. Its fuel is love. It is time to love the light within you and believe in your pure potential.

“You have no need to travel anywhere. Journey within yourself and bathe in the splendor of your own light.” – Rumi –
