B009 - Crystal Cave / Heart within the Heart
“ I shine the light on my path & come to the truth of my inner voice.”
The beginning of the journey. The process of individuation.
Main Theme: The individual search for truth.
Dominant Characteristics: A selfless person. Is in contact with his/her own subconscious and inner voice. Discovers the hidden secrets of life and can interpret them. Creative talents for painting and writing poetry. Understanding of philosophy. Is occupied with questions concerning humanity. A developed human being who possesses the ability to speak from a universal perspective and, therefore, a person who can reach many.
Potential Challenge Aspects: Possesses a strong tendency for self-deception and for lying and deceit when it comes to others. Is jealous and tends to gossip. Is unaware of all these weaknesses.
Spiritual Level: Helps the user find the way out of limbo, to overcome loneliness, and to reach aloneness (in the sense of all-one-ness). Gives spiritual protection. Promotes the process of going within and learning self-trust. This "transcendental heart" (ananda kanda) bottle represents progress and evolution of the true self.
Blue and green make turquoise. This represents the mind and body in its soul form - balanced in harmony with the blue of peace that comes with the realization of the higher self as opposed to the turmoil of growth when it is "just physical". It symbolizes transcendence of the heart through the old emotional ties being released and the new coming in. It also reflects communication of the transcendental heart.
The soul in its hunger can find respite here, the feeling of wanting to rise above earthly matters. The young may feel the need of this combination when the first awakening within themselves creates demand - without the wisdom (as yet) to cope with it.
Mental Level: Brings awareness of own self-deception. Helps find a new direction, especially concerning communication (for example, when it comes to the fear of public speaking).
Emotional Level: Enables the person to cope with feelings such as strong jealousy, idealized love, old emotional entanglements and loneliness.
Where to Apply the Substance: Around the entire chest area.
Affirmation: In the search for truth, I listen to my inner voice.
Distinctive Qualities: In past life therapy, helps establish a connection with Atlantean incarnations.
Tarot: The Hermit

Pathway between Mercy to Beauty 6-4
Guidance of the Path
Be as a light that shines with your own highest influences. Use your will to insist upon your own best efforts. There is no need to oppose anyone, nor to directly oppose the trend of events. Be as detached and disinterested in what is going on as in necessary for you to focus mainly on raising the quality of your response to the highest possible level.
Who are you, really? Identify yourself with your higher potential. Then, be less concerned with how others are acting, and more concerned with being true to yourself.
There is a point where we must be unconcerned with how we are received by others, or with the impact our actions have upon them. This is not to suggest that we are to be less compassionate. It is more a matter of respecting their free will as you concentrate on living up to your own standards. Another way of stating this is to strive to express beauty as you see it rather that playing to the audience driven by the false need for their approval.
Reserve judgement of yourself and others, and resist the urge to criticize or condemn. Keep a close watch on yourself for the purpose of the higher self expression, not lower self-regard. Keep your inner eye focused on the ideal you are striving to achieve and it will draw you toward it.
Protect yourself with wisdom: there is no weapon superior to it. Your own ability to make intelligent choices will take you where you want to go. to the summits of achievement go the wise. It is wise to place your best foot forward.
Experience Represented by the Path
This Path represents your power to identify with your Higher Self. The keys to accomplishing this are your will and self-awareness. Use your will to drop the habit of trying to change, control and manipulate others. As the sages teach: "You give away your power to reach your own higher potential by insisting on others changing to make you happy". Observe your own actions and reactions, and use your will to function at your highest potential. This is a never ending process of taking oneself higher and higher into the purified realms at the summits of wisdom. Individuals and conditions represented by this Path will tend to require a special effort to express one's best, but with that exists a special opportunity to do so. Experiences represented by this Path are teach you to focus on raising yourself, improving the way you do things, instead of criticizing and condemning others or your circumstances.
