Qualities: breakthrough, new beginnings, relationships, companions of destiny, emotional-body issues, ego, recasting the past, spiritual strength, guardians and guides
One of the gifts of Oc is the calling in and recognition of other companions of destiny. Other beings with the same longing are waiting to meet and acknowledge youbeings that can see you as you authentically are. When you have been truly seen, you feel empowered, and remembrance of a shared sacred trust is ignited. This is a natural process, divinely designed for recognition through vibrational affinity, freed from personal expectations.
Perhaps you have yet to recognize such beings on the physical plane. Remember that you are not alone; your companions of destiny are always around you, in spirit and purpose, in connection and support. In meditation, strengthen your connection; deepen your relationship with your Essence Self. Everything flowers with its own perfect timing. If you have already recognized your companions of destiny, you arc being asked not only to support and acknowledge each other, but also to lovingly bring out each other's shadows to be integrated and healed. Oc represents the removal of emotional obstacles and the recognition of your destiny.
Oc can be seen as an access point for developing relationships with guides, totems, allies, and guardians. There arc many ways to work with these spiritual guides, including guided visualizations, shamanic journeys, and meditation. A useful construct is viewing them as aspects of yourself, pan of your life stream that is asking to be integrated. Remember, there is no "other." In this grand adventure, you are being asked to embody all that you are.
Encoded in the upper comer of Oc's star-glyph is a symbol of primal nurturance. Such nurturance represents the "soul-feeding" offered by companions on the same path. Profound insights are garnered through shared purpose and relationship with others who are willing to be in their truth and integrity about the light and shadow aspects they perceive in themselves.
Similarly, intimate relationships can be viewed as unique opportunities to bring forward in each other deep emotional patterns to be transformed. In this case, those you have drawn to you hold the ability to assist you in your own integration as well. There are no mistakes. Be willing to look deeply into the truth held within any relationship. The expression of intimacy is a gift of love, the lack of it may be a symptom asking for honest communication and healing. It may also be guiding you to reevaluate your relationship and the purpose it is serving.
Oc also represents the recasting of your past, those deep emotional patterns that have been shaped by past experience and become identified as pan of the ego self. Rather than blindly protecting your identity, your ego can act as a useful filter for reality. Oc asks you to remake your relationship with your ego, to create it as an ally and release the issues of the small self. You will be guided in taking steps to transform, heal, and integrate. A link to the larger pattern is forming, as you become freed from past identities and emotional patterns. The Essence Self then becomes unencumbered, opening the channels of communication with spirit guides, allies, and companions of destiny. As these relationships support your Essence Self, the call goes out to the "one heart" that beats in powerful concert. This is the song that beckons your sacred family to reunite.
To the Maya, Oc represents the dog, the true companion whose loyalty and devotion derives from the clear intent held in its innate spiritual bond. In like manner, companions of destiny are devoted and uncompromising in their true hearts' desires. Oc also represents the foot that steps forward into new beginnings on your path of destiny.
A meditation for Oc is, "I am the faithful arrow that flies into destiny's dawning." Oc's number is ten, representing the union of the foundation of the individual self with the Essence Self.
The color for Oc is teal green, which combines the blue of water with the green of Earth. Teal green honors your heart connection with other companions on the spiritual journey. It nurtures and supports the emotional body and promotes access to companions, guides, and allies.
In the shadow of Oc, you may be caught up in the emotional drama of life. Do you repeatedly experience charged emotions such as anger, fear, anxiety, or jealousy? Do you suspect that you are unconsciously addicted to the excitement and intrigue created by emotional drama? This can be difficult to see, let alone resolve.
The solution? Learn to apply the same intensity to the magic of your life and your dear, conscious intent toward spiritual growth. Learn how to change your emotional position by creating an internal "silent witness " Follow your process, garnering its gifts and releasing its intense emotions. Bring your process into a place of choice instead of allowing it to Just "happen" to you. From this position of choice, you may befriend the emotional pan of yourself and open to a deeper understanding of the underlying patterns of your emotions. Look at what is beneath those patterns and what truth resides within them. Emotions are not to be judged; they are simply tools of discovery that give you information about yourself. Remember, you are the one who chooses and directs your life.
Another shadow of Oc is possessiveness, jealousy, and the misunderstanding of loyalties and ties. It is natural to walk your path with other companions of destiny; however, holding on to them hampers your full expression and purpose. Perhaps you are jealous about or attracted to the qualities in another that you would like to have revealed in yourself. Perhaps you become attached and obsessive or seem to lose yourself in the process of trying to find fulfillment outside of self. If your intent is wholeness within yourself, you naturally draw to you companions and relationships of wholeness. Be willing to look honestly at your present relationships. Explore the foundations upon which they are built. Examine where your loyalties and bonds lie and the purposes they serve. Which relationships are asking to be furthered, nurtured, and appreciated? Which would benefit from reexamination or release?
Transformation in the shadow of Oc is found in the emotional patterns and projections related to issues of insecurity and trust. Open to a deeper understanding of the human emotional nature. To foster this understanding, experiment by authentically taking the "other's" position and feeling the "others" perspective. Try on various masks and roles that you both play. Learn how to step inside another's experience. Appreciate the fact that both positions share the same issue and that both give you an opportunity to uncover the issue's root cause. By affinity, we all draw to us others who are working on the same issues. This is a great gift for transformation.
As the second directional guardian of the mammalian brain, the emotional or limbic brain, Oc helps you to work on issues such as anger, fear, confusion, obsession, despair, and self-doubt. These emotional patterns are unresolved issues and unhealed wounds, often stemming from traumatic childhood experiences.
There arc numerous ways of overcoming these blocks. One is to recast your past in the way you would like it to have happened. Reexperiencing the charge of the memories that act as emotional blocks does this. In this process, called neuro linguistic programming, the "memory anchor" is reactivated so that you can access the pattern to be healed or released. The emotional charge then becomes fuel for transformation and the integration of the disparate parts of self. Call on your Essence Self to guide you to bring in the qualities and skills that will recast your experience in a new light. You may also choose to go on a shamanic Journey to retrieve and reclaim the parts of yourself that may have become symbolically separated. In reclaiming self, you literally recast your past and release it into the new.
In doing this cleansing, you will feel literally born again. As you release the energy, it cuts through the emotional patterns and transforms the illusion of separation. Through this release, you journey deeper into the mysteries of your Essence Self. As you express authentically who you truly are, your companions of destiny acknowledge your true essence, building the trust and connection that reveals your destiny.
The harmonic wisdom of Oc is affinity, the attraction of like vibrations or substances for one another. Spiritual affinity is not limited to family kinshipit is part of the natural affinity between companions of destiny. Such companions are drawn together by the same aligned force that draws iron filings to a magnet. Companions of destiny are drawn together to do work that is naturally harmonious.
On the surface at times, it may seem that you have little in common with these companions, yet the attraction remains. This is because Essence Selves are often committed to work together long before they meet in the physical world. This is a natural process of affinity, rather than a process motivated from personal desire. Follow this guidance into your unfoldment within the larger pattern.
The musical descriptors of Oc are pastiche, meaning a successful combination of different but compatible pans, and consort, an uncommon mixture of musical players. On the surface, some players may not seem to blend well, but their Essence Selves can create striking combinations of harmonious tones.
