Flow 4-20: Learning to purr
The guides help me to settle my nervous system. Then, they offer a teaching about sacred symbols and a powerful name.
“In order to receive our transmission at the rate and in the order that we would transmit it, Amy must purr. She must settle into contented, easy openness.”
Last night, we worked with Amy to smooth yesterday’s message – which was hard for her to bring through as there was much resistance within her. And we will say that most of her resistance comes from rushing to jump into the work without prior preparation.
We are in a period of adjustment with Amy, wherein she is jumping ahead of the order of our message leaving gaps in the transmission; for as we offer each block of imagery/information she glimpses the wholeness of it, senses where we are headed and leaps to go there before we have built the bridge to span the gap in understanding. For there are bridges between things, and one who journeys (especially one who leads others along) must use these bridges to lay the trail, even when she or he has the ability to leave them out – to leap ahead.
These bridges, like all things in the passage through space and time, have their purposes and some of these purposes lead to learning of skills which will be needed further down the road. There are other purposes, less obvious, which appear as small delights and surprises as the traveler slows down to take in what’s here along the way. And these delights serve to maintain the joy of the journey.
And so, while a journeyer may be able to skip or leap over a whole block of the journey, it is better if she does not. For blank spots will be left in the map, terrain which needs to be traversed is left unacknowledged. Learning which needs to be included will be missed, which may create difficulty for those who travel behind and loss of joy [of discovery] will be left in the map of the journeyer’s own heart, which creates unnecessary struggle down the road.
And Amy understands now and she is in accord. And there is much to tell here and now, and so we begin.
Yesterday, we spoke of naming and releasing names; and of experiencing the differences between different names for the same thing. And today, we would expand this understanding.
We begin with these questions: What makes a thing real? What is real? What does it mean when we say “that which is real is eternal and holy”?
We stop to adjust with Amy, who must come into quiet receptivity for there is much interference, as she leapt into the receiving without taking the time to prepare – and this is training, for she does leap and skips over the necessary preparation of the vessel, which is herself. Her own mood and state, her own body.
And Amy is learning to purr
This is why it is so helpful to her to simply sit with Mooky, her cat, and to attend to the cat’s need to be petted and fed and watered, to be snuggled, just so, against Amy’s thigh. For as Mooky is feeling her way toward joy, she is always moving in easy concert with us and with the natural tides of Amy’s energy.
And Mooky is teaching Amy to purr.
In order to receive our transmission at the rate and in the order that we would transmit it, Amy must purr. She must settle into contented, easy openness. She must eat and drink and make herself comfortable so that she can settle into a state of meditative receptivity.
And we are helping her to make the choices to rest in this state as much as possible, for from this state, which includes heightened awareness of her natural way, she can choose that ‘way’, that road which is the feeling of joy – the joy-led way.
And she laughs, as she realizes, with us, that all of this preamble that we offer every morning, is a message of attunement to her own receptive nature. And so, this part which annoys her when she reads it back the next day, is a ‘lesson in non-resistance to the flow, offered by us by the practice of doing it.
And so, Amy, when annoyance rises in you as we ramble, we would ask you to consider: What flow is this? And our answer will be that this (like all things) is the flow of joy. This, whatever happens, is (always) joy flowing for there is no other flow but joy. And so, there is the flow of joy and there is resistance to that. And this, even the preamble which annoys you, is the way to joy and the way is good.
Once Amy is used to flowing with us at faster speed and higher frequency, she will live in a state of readiness. She will be capable and ready to flow at a moment’s notice. And that is the essence of this message for we are priming the pump, as it were, for the joy-led life. And joy is fast moving and high frequency and this is the attunement and the training for that.
We re-turn now to our intention to offer new understanding around naming and words. And we select our words with care for words carry energy and meaning; and there are important things to know and to understand about this.
We select our words so that you may receive, along with these words, a transmission of uplifting energy which naturally supports your unfolding. We are working in concert with Amy, to deliver a message of love and peace, which also carries, as light flows through water, a substance which promotes the alignment of your vibratory rate and frequency with that of the vibratory rate of love and peace.
In other words, we are not just telling you about love and peace, we are offering the direct experience of that to you here and now. The energy of love and peace flows to you now. Right here. Right now.
And this offering is carried by the words of the message which Amy now brings. And our offering is joy and this joy is like a healing balm, which we would rub upon your tired feet, for you have walked for so long;.
And this joy is like a cool and quenching drink which we would proffer for your soul’s refreshment, for you have thirsted, parched and alone, on desert sands. And lo, we would offer this sweet-scented lotion of joy, fragranced with pomegranate and myrrh, for these are healing scents, made to uplift and also, to symbolize other things. For these symbols carry stories – they are bridges which can carry you across oceans of meaning, without the need to leap.
They are symbols, wherein one thing reminds you of another. And Amy is asking: What do these symbols remind us of? And what embedded energy and meaning do they hold?
And we say, the pomegranate, studded with seeds and flowing with sweet red juice, reminds you of the womb, fertility and multi-seeded possibility of your world. It is a symbol of the womanly, the sacred and divine feminine.
And we say that myrrh, which is an oil, derived from plant resin, is a symbol of the manifesting [feminine] principle. Though it is linked, through ages of re-telling, to the story of a man, Jesus Christ, who, like you, walked the journey of being human.
(And Amy is uncomfortable re-minding you of this story and she would prefer to leap over this; or to leave it out entirely. For she is trained, by the world of separation, to fear that even the mention of this name will draw attack toward herself.)
And to this we say: Don’t leap over the bridge.
And isn’t this interesting/curious? Do you wonder at this, as we do? And by ‘wonder’ we mean to say, don’t you, noticing this, become curious about it? What power that single name contains that it would stop Amy from purring with our message and shift her from joy to fear? And isn’t that curious? For was not this man a messenger of love and peace?
And so, we stop here to wonder a while with you: How has it come to pass that the name of a great teacher of love creates such response in her? There is a tightness in her abdomen and alertness in her body’s warning system – a buzz of anxiety (low level, but persistent), a watchfulness, a vigilance and uncertainty – and a loss of the willingness to continue.
Are you not curious about this? We are. For this is a bright and clear demonstration of the energy and the power embedded in a single word. And we remind you, Reader, that the name Jesus is but a word. And we remind you that all of this arose from the mention of another word, ‘myrrh,’ which is associated with his name.
What magic is here? How does a word become infused with power? By your steady attention to it as such. And we will return and return and return to this principle: your attention adds power to all that it falls upon.
So, let us explore together these symbols and this name.
What is myrrh on its own, without the association to this name? Myrrh is a substance of the earth, a smoky-scented amber-colored rock of resin...
(Amy stops us here because she does not know if what we are saying is ‘right’ and she is uncomfortable and does not want our message to continue if it’s ‘wrong’ for she fears (still) that she may be making all of this up. She is still uncertain that our conversation is real, that we are real, that the wisdom we share is not some fantasy or memory of her own. And yet we ARE real and we DO know. We are certain of what we are saying and we will share it if she will let our guidance speak. And she agrees and we continue... )
Myrrh enhances strength of body and spirit; myrrh creates connections between things, across synapses. In its way, we are speaking again of bridges for, since ancient times, myrrh has served as a bridge between worlds. And so has been associated with healing and healers.
(And we encourage Amy to record our message about myrrh and later, when we have finished, to check our claim for only then will it serve as proof of our reliability. Proof for her and perhaps, for you, dear reader, that while we are working with Amy to deliver this message, we carry our own knowledge, which she may tap into but which does not derive from her own experience. )
We continue: Myrrh heightens the senses and enhances the spirit. It is settling while also strengthening. It was imbibed, as a liquid brew, fermented with other herbs. And it was burned in the temples of the priestess of Jerusalem. For its smoke was said to carry the prayers/messages of the priestesses heavenward. And so, though myrrh is associated with Jesus, it is also more accurate to say that it is a symbol of the temple of the priestess – and even of Isis, as it was burned in her temples as well.
And so we have the pomegranate and myrrh, which we are prone to/ready to rename back to the truth of their origins: the sacred feminine. In other words, the created world, and Sophia, Mary, Mother Earth, and Isis, whose gifts are infused into it.
And we would add that Jesus himself was associated with the symbols and rituals of the priestess – and the house of Ben David, the house of his mother, Mary, a priestess and of Mary Magdalene, his consort, who was also a priestess.
And why is this important to state here and now? This is the time of the rising of the one to meet the other. And the one is feminine and the other is masculine and they have been held apart too long.
And this is our message today: the masculine and the feminine are two halves of one seed. They are one and together, the same. For there is no separation between love and love. For love will seek itself in every corner of the world without relenting.
For this is the way of the world and it is the reunion of the sacred with the sacred, the mother with the daughter, the father with the son, the family with itself, holding the space for that which they see and know is real: the emergence of love on earth.
And Amy is asking: why are you telling this now? Why is this important and how can we apply this lofty esoterica to our daily modern lives?
And we will answer that in due time.
Here and now, know this: The sacred family is the wholeness of what you are. You are not one piece of that puzzle – not woman nor man, nor one without the other. You are not one half of a whole, not daughter without son, nor sister without brother.
You are the fullness of the sacred family – the mother and the father, the daughter and the son. All of this is in you, whether you be man or woman, inside of you the wholeness of this family dwells.
And we are here to explain this and more (and now we invite Amy to take a break - and to look up the meaning and the uses of myrrh and even of the pomegranate.) And Amy invites you, reader, to do the same.

Why do I keep posting images of feet? Because I am drawn to them. Bringing this work, which has been hidden in my notebooks, out into the light is activating my nervous system, calling me to ground ground ground. Because as I search for images that feel resonant with this work, it’s feet. It’s hands. It’s bodies, surrounded in light.
As ever, I am grateful for your interest in this work.
However we connect, I wish you love and blessings.
