“When you have your realization, all your lifetimes start to realize their realization too.”
In today’s post I bring to you a simple drawing I made to represent one of my lifetimes - and the story behind this drawing.
I made this drawing representing a vision of a lifetime I had in India. I feel like I've had many lifetimes in India. This girl is one character that I cherish. And the purity with which she communicated with me I'm not able to describe in words.
She said that in that life all she wanted to do was to be free, to pick flowers, to walk on the green fields. Not being a wife, not being a daughter. Not living much of life either, she died very early.
I associate this girl with the vision I had a few years ago when I used to listen to Krishna Das' interpretation of "Om Namah Shivaya". I listened to that Mantra every day going to work, sitting on the bus, feeling the wind on my face. The drums would always take me on a deep journey within, and sometimes this vision of a lady with long black hair appeared to me. She was dancing around the fire, to the beat of the drums. Everyone around her was singing, clapping, dancing, laughing. I don’t remember the faces. But I do remember the feeling.
The Shiva Jattas (dreadlocks) were not in that first vision, but in 2020 after listening a Tobias channel I made a little drawing called “Asian girl wearing Shiva Jattas” and later on it all came together: my visions while listening to the mantras in 2018, my drawing in 2020 and then this drawing here that I made in 2021. It’s a beautiful story and it is completely integrated.
Although it is a simple drawing, each part of it has a meaning.
The green grass & blue sky represent silence, space and serenity. The flowers represent simplicity and blossoming. The sun represents my light illuminating that lifetime. The closed eyes represent surrender & receiving the light. Somehow I also feel she is offering me those flowers.
There is magic.
There are sweet potentials.
There is happiness.
There is so much beauty.
The sacred is often misunderstood.
The Scent of Flowers.
The colors of my skirt.
The wind shaking the leaves.
They dance on the floor from side to side,
The wind makes them dance, and warns me of the rain coming soon
It freezes my bare feet and plays with my skirt.
It showers me with sweet-smelling flower petals.
I look up to the sky with a tight chest,
and among the gray clouds,
orange and gold the sun rescues me
From the inner labyrinth of my thoughts.
It brings me to the essential, to the purest
The Secret Garden where magic happens,
where the most beautiful communication has space.
Holy and Real
Filled with living beauty and constant flowing energy
An internal garden that expresses itself around me.
Am I in it or is it in me?
we are both
in multidimensional expression
In the most different forms of energy and consciousness.
My energy expressed in the form of Sun and Wind is also
expressed in forms of light and sound
that my mind doesn't understand.
expressed in places
my feet will never reach
Beyond time and space,
in an eternal moment,
I behold the Secret Garden.

According to the dictionary, sensual is an adjective related to the physical senses, to pleasure and also to sexuality.
But the concept of sensuality that I use goes beyond these definitions. I use the word sensuality to refer to the Soul Senses.
The Soul Senses are ways of perceiving reality.
Most people on Earth experience reality through the same sense: the Sense of Focus.
The Sense of Focus is what some call the “Matrix” and can come close to the Buddhist concept of “Maya” (Illusion)
When a person perceives reality through this sense, they feel as if they were separated from their soul. They are unconscious of their grandness and beauty.
With the discovery that they are more than a human body and that there is more to this world than what appears to be, the first step out of the sense of focus is taken.
But the journey tends to be long, due to the many years in which the mind was programmed to perceive only with the five senses of the human body.
Usually, the first thing we notice at the beginning of this "journey of feeling", is that the five senses begin to be “enhanced”.
We begin to perceive smells more vividly, food is tastier, music becomes deeper, touch is more sensitive, and our eyes slowly begin to see beyond.
Then we realize that each of these human senses is connected with the senses of the soul.
It's not just our hearing that is sharper, or our taste buds more sensitive, it is the human body re-establishing communication with the soul!
And in the communication between soul and body - the body begins to perceive more elements, more layers of reality.
All Soul Senses are connected, and as you start to “dive” into them, you become aware of more and more senses.
For example, a sunset by a river can make your soul dance with the Sense of Freedom, and at the same time, you can be aware of the Sense of Beauty, the Sense of Unity, and the Sense of Joy.
You can feel in many levels, because you are a multidimensional being.
Remember that the Soul Senses are ways of perceiving reality, and do not need to fit into names or definitions.
In the end, what really matters is surrendering to the experience of feeling.
With love, Liah'ah.
