jvar: (Bursting Energy)
[personal profile] jvar
It's been a while since I have done a daily energy ritual. I decided to go out this evening just ahead of the storm front and see if I couldn't refill my sorely depleted energy stores.

When I finished, a thought crossed my mind about signs and indications of whether this energy work was well received. It wasn't a well developed thought, but a fleeting curiosity, which was immediately answered.

This lovely, and amazingly large, cicada circled around my waist at the level of the sephiroth I invoked, and landed near my hand. Normally I would be spooked by something this large flying so close, but there was no fear.

I looked up the meaning of "cicada"

The Chinese see it as a sign of rebirth.

The word Cicada comes from a Greek word, meaning 'magician"

I will take that as a resounding "YES!" to my query.

Because the cicada spends most of its life underground it is associated with the unseen or hidden.  To discover hidden truths a person is required to look beneath the surface. Cicadas teach us how to delve into the underworld without fear and uncover the secrets that lie beneath the surface.  Those with this totem are exploratory in nature and should call upon the cicada whenever there is a need to understand the truth about reality and illusion.

Cicadas are so great. I find their discarded exoskeletons in our backyard all the time. The droning makes me think of monks, chanting sutras, they just seem to get into your head the same way. So yeah that's pretty sweet.
