Guided Meditations on Energetic Remedies

This is part two of a six-part series of meditations dealing with powerful homeopathic energy remedies. We can learn a lot from getting in touch with our intuition, letting all concerns of the day vanish as we concentrate on one thing using the imagination.

The fact that we have some knowledge of the energy substance and sit in a group of people together who contemplate the same substance may bring some universal energy into the space. Energies mingle.

This remedy for this meditation comes from potentized Vernix caseosa. The newborn infant is encased in this protective covering while in the womb. On delivery this second skin, you might call it, is wiped away, leaving the soft baby skin vulnerable to infection. Although not pretty, many say to leave the covering and then place of the mother's breast, which will be easier for the baby to suckle. This bonding time brings mother and child in close contact.

The Doula website provides much information about the special healing properties of the vernix. For educated mothers and those close to nature, we know it is important not to cut the umbilical cord too soon, but here we learn that the vernix coating, I can think of it like the fine white lining under the eggshell, has a function throughout the gestation and birthing process.

They suggest rubbing the vernix into the babies skin, rather than wiping it off and giving a bath immediately upon delivery. Savor and linger in the process as the newborn comes into a new world with this second skin.

We are only beginning to learn so much about birth, health and our organs. Humans are composed of mostly bacterial and viral cells that get imported upon delivery. The vernix carries many of these symbiotic cells.

To set the stage for the meditation below, it was a Friday evening, everyone sitting in a circle. The leader used the singing bowl and energy remedies. The playful sounds of the environment and the change in atmosphere is felt by all.

IH - Part 2 - Vernix -- The Group Meditation

Dusk settles.
The soft yellow light of the flame flickers
As the metal bowl intones the sound
The bowl like the diaphragm of a woman
open wide

Then shadowed as the sky darkens
A subtle play of drizzle in the air
Strange how there is stillness
And the chilly wind once against the
skin awakens this new meditation

Taking a breath
listening and waiting for the thoughts
Something is happening in the abdomen
Not hunger, not digestion
This is the seat of energy
Around the hips and down

A change in tempo
The breeze wafts in and the crickets chirp
continuously as night descends.

The hair on my arms like goosebumps chill
Now the inner right ankle itches and mid-back
Who will scratch it when the owl hoots?

I need a blanket to stay warm
Unprepared for the coming of night
My senses suddenly stirred
turn to the kitchen, maybe the wind

Even the scratching does not
relieve the itching spot
Someone snorts as the chimes make time
playing water bottles filled to different levels

Can I see in the darkness?
The candle still flickers its warm light
reaching, reaching to heaven

Like the rabbi's say
Shabbos has come
Meditating on the wildly moving flame
The bowl is dark
No more shadows
Oh my. The light stood still
Whispers take me.

      Hello Cardisa ~ This was news to me, as well. However, there is a purpose unto everything. Our ancestors were more in touch than humanity today. We have been separated due to fear and sometimes our own scientific thinking and over-processing. Nature has an innate ability to heal us. Love, Debby

      This is new info for me Debby. If the baby was born with it then it must serve an important purpose. Thanks for sharing.
