The first air bead on the cord is the Air of Kether, the blessing of inspiration. Inspiration means “to take in a holy breath.” It is the blessing of an “aha” moment. We have a moment where we connect fully to spirit and an idea comes to light.
Mythically when we think about inspiration we think about beings who bring us inspiration. Muses, the gods, and angels are all said to deliver ideas that spark creativity. This divine inspiration guides us to our true purpose here on earth. When you have an idea “pop” into your head do you ever ask yourself where it came from? Did it just come from you or did it come from a divine messenger?
Inspiration on the cord is the blessing of air in Kether. Kether is the place on the tree said to be the closest to the God force. It is a place where there is no shape or form. It is beyond space and time, and yet it is all spaces and times. When we think about the power of air in this space it is the divine thought. It is the inspiration brought to us in a place where we think as one with the divine.
The meditation with this bead on the cord is to connect with a person who inspires you and for a moment be able to walk in their shoes and perceive the part of their pattern that inspires you. In this exercise you may choose someone who inspires you or just be open to seeing who appears when you seek a person for inspiration. Even when you choose a person, it may not be the person who shows up so be forewarned! In this exercise we use some kabbalistic keys to help us resonate with this gift.
Meditation to the Blessing of Inspiration
Hold the bead of the Kether of Air, the bead of the blessing of inspiration.
Count yourself down into a meditative state.
Resonate the God name of Kether: “eh-heh-e-yeh”
Visualize the screen of your mind expanding to surround you in a sphere. You will perceive a rising sensation as the as the sphere becomes illuminated with a brilliant white light that seems to be filled with all colors. When the light has filled the sphere you become aware of a person coming closer out of the light. This is the inspirer whose pattern you need to observe to integrate it into yourself. Greet them. Tell them what you find inspiring about them if you know it. Ask to be able to experience the blessings of their pattern. If they say yes, look at your spirit body in this light. See how it is beginning to become like this radiant light that has no limits. Allow your light body to flow into this person. You find yourself looking out through their eyes. You’re able to share their way of seeing and thinking. You may see scenes of them doing the thing that inspires you. Observe what it feels like to have the experience to do things successfully. Ask your subconscious to remember this pattern, so you can customize it to your life later.
Once again become the limitless light of your soul and flow back out of your inspirer. Relax and let the light reform into a more inspired you. Give thanks to your inspirer and ask them if they have any final words of wisdom or inspiration for you. Say your farewells. They fade back into the light of the screen of your mind. You feel a gentle descent and the white prismatic light recedes, until your mental screen is normal-colored for you. Allow your screen to return to its usual shape.
Count yourself up into a waking state, making sure to give yourself clearance and grounding if necessary. Write down your experience in your journal.
Take action on the inspiration you received to ground the pattern into your make up.
Where does my inspiration come from? Where do I feel it most? What am I inspired to do in this moment?
