Day 25: The Mother, Intonation

Let’s cram us some symbols, folks! Looking at Roderick’s list o’ correspondences for the mother, we see that her color is green, her time is the late afternoon, her number is 4, her vocalization is ‘a’ as in ‘say,’ and her direction is the southwest. So what do we do?


Set your alarm clock so that you know to begin this exercise in the late afternoon today, at approximately 3 or 4 pm. Using your compass, locate the southwest and sit in a comfortable position facing this direction. Set the green candle before you and light it. Set your gaze upon the candle flame. Take a deep breath, expanding both the lungs and the belly. As you exhale, begin to vocalize the sound “a” as in “say.” Sustain the sound until all breath vacates your lungs. Allow the inhalation to arise from this emptiness you create from the vacated lungs, and then again fill your lungs to capacity. Repeat the intonation three more times, which will make a total of four intonations. After you complete the fourth intonation, sit in silence for 15 or 20 minutes and allow the essence of this intonation to reverberate your consciousness.

Hrm. No crazy song lyrics to report this time. Instead, I just felt perfectly content after the intonation. All of my daily irritations about work and family were gone. I just sort of understood why certain people do certain things and I was okay with it.
