I felt drawn to my half-Mala beads, and started chanting an Om with each bead. I let myself sink into the cards, and found myself the Tree. The Om started in the earth into which my roots were sunk. It was a hum, a heartbeat from the earth, that vibrated through my roots, unmoving because they were held firmly in the earth. As the vibration moved up my trunk to my branches and leaves, those leaves began to dance and shimmy and rustle and sing. By that point, it felt like a breeze that swayed me, the heartbeat of the Universe echoing through me.
It was interesting, because that heartbeat felt dark and deep, yet supportive at my roots. Yet once it had moved up into my leaves, it was a dance, alive and moving, exciting and vibrant. Both felt wonderful, just in very different ways. I think this says something to me about the nature of the elements involved... will have to ponder it a little more :)
