THE DEVIC DIMENSIONS
The ancient world still exists.
Your child-heart knows.
Yes, it is true.
The earth has much to share
with those who choose to believe. But first,
you must be willing to see
thru the eyes of mystery.
The devic dimensions are woven into the very fabric of our lives.
As children many of us perceived the world through an unfiltered, untainted lens. Our understanding of life grew out of our connections with the conscious intelligence that existed within the subtle energetic realms of physical form. Not only did the world delight us thru our five senses, but our hearts connected with energies and worlds that exist beyond space and time.
The devic dimensions, those subtle energy fields that lie just beyond our every day perceptions, inspire our creativity, our built environments, our interactions with others, our choices, and our experiences. All the infinite details of our lives are influenced by, and composed of, conscious intelligent beings that exist within this world beyond what our five senses perceive. We cannot exist separate from them. They are intrinsically a part of us, woven into the very fabric of our lives.
Spirits of Place
The devic dimensions are teeming with conscious intelligent beings. 'Deva' is an ancient Sanskrit term meaning 'shining one'. In populating this field of subtle energy, the 'shining ones' exist in a vast array of shapes and sizes with expressions specific to their purpose and location. Spirits of Place & Time, Gods & Goddesses, Landscape Devas, Elementals, Faeries, Elves, Dryads, Guardian Spirits, Angels, and the conscious intelligence of each individual stone, tree, plant, cloud, thought, inspiration, action, animal, bird, and human being, etc., are all vital forces that make the life of form possible and influence its expression. These beings are responsible for everything from nurturing plant growth and directing the flow of blood thru our veins, to distributing life force to vast areas of the landscape and guiding storms and planetary activity.
The act of perceiving with a new tantalizing awareness that which has become dull, unimportant, to be disregarded, or of no use; thereby changing it into something that is vital, necessary, impassioned, worthy of engagement, respect and appreciation.
We all have our own unique connection with the Earth.
Most of us have been introduced to these beings that dwell in the subtle realms thru the myths, legends, fairy tales and fantasy stories that have been written about them. But, we also have our own unique relationships with, and understanding of the 'shining ones' in our daily lives. We are in constant communication with them. They come to us when they choose, but we can reach out and ask to be connected with them. We can begin to re-wonder our world, to experience the magic that we knew as children. The method of choice is to have an open heart and ground oneself in a space of gentleness and wonder. Reconnect with the innocent child within and expect the unexpected!
“The devas, who at first seemed to be far-off beings, through a joyous communion grew into close companions until eventually they made me realize that they, like the kingdom of heaven, are within.”
