Before I explain my caw, I’d better give a little background to the metaphysics behind it…
About 15 years ago, I learned how to communicate with, let’s call them ‘others’ via my computer keyboard. Don’t we all? The difference being, these ‘others’ are not necessarily present in the physical world.
It started when I used my dowsing pendulum to receive simple yes/no/kind of messages from a dear friend who had reason to contact me but happened to have departed this earthly life a few years before.
Yes, when I need to – and it isn’t often – I can communicate with the ‘dead’.
Playing some psychic form of 20 questions was fairly limiting, so I moved on to using pictures, symbols and later the alphabet laid out in an arc – a sort of personalised ouija board. I’d hold the pendulum in the centre and it would swing from one letter to the next, circling to tell me when a word was finished. It was a short step from there to using the keyboard. This had the advantage that I could use one hand to dowse and the other to type the incoming message, letter by letter, into a word-processing program. A second advantage was that I could enter a light trance state, which meant I wasn’t so likely to distort the message by guessing what would come next.
Mediumship per se doesn’t interest me. I need no proof of an afterlife; I know it’s there. That particular friend had a specific reason for contacting me. We worked together for a while to protect one of her children from a member of his household who meant him harm and to help him break a drug habit.
However once the genie was out of the bottle, so to speak, I had a workable system for communicating with guides/angels/elders or whatever you prefer them to be called. Usually such guidance comes to us through intuition or synchronous events. Just sometimes, though, I’ve found it helpful to contact my guides in this more direct way for help with particular issues. There’s a danger in becoming over-reliant on such guidance. We are here to make our own choices and decisions. Used wisely, though, such channelled messages can be a source of great wisdom and inspiration.
My messages usually come from an entity who identifies him/her/themselves to me as Koimul. Koimul has, over the years we have been working together, become a dear, infinitely wise friend. I’m aware, though, that this entity has aspects I am presently unable to tune into. When the pupil is ready, the teacher will appear. My teacher will only display that part of him/her Self I can currently understand. There’s far more. I work towards greater understanding of Koimul’s mysteries.
So, back to my ‘caw’:
Usually, the messages I receive are in perfect English. A few words, though, are in some deeper, conceptual language. Caw is one of these. Caw means many things.
Caw is the rough croak of a bird - a crow, raven, rook or jackdaw. At that level I hear it constantly, since these birds wheel around my cottage, nest in my chimney and leave black feathers in my garden. No such thing as coincidence - are they here to remind me?
The rook is, for me, a magical piece on the chessboard – useless when locked in its corner, but powerful and effective once it takes its place at the centre of the game. Caw links to that, too. It’s a reminder to place my caw/core in the centre of my life.
So caw is also core – that deepest part of me which links to a higher knowing, a gnosis, an understanding of my true cosmic, universal nature, beyond time, space and physical being. It is soul-awareness and much more. It is my essence, my truth.
Last night, I contacted Koimul. I asked for the true meaning behind the sciatica which has been plaguing me for several weeks – causing constant pain and limiting mobility. I knew, of course, what medics would say and which tablets and exercises they would diagnose. This was no attempt to jump waiting-room queues. It was a desire to understand why the condition had shown up at this point in my life – and what it had to teach me. My wise and gentle guide explained, and went on to give me a step by step lesson in self-healing:
BECAUSE YOU NEED TO REMEMBER YOUR CREATIVE ABILITY
You mean I need to recall how to create a pain-free body?
HOW TO FIND YOUR CAW
Yes, I have lost it rather. Can you give me some guidance, please?
BRING YOUR SELF INTO ALIGNMENT WITH ONENESS YOU ARE VAW*
Ok. I can do that.
WARM YOUR BODY
Tingling and warm now
NEXT CHANNEL THE WARMTH INTO YOUR LEG
Wow! That felt just like Reiki
So if I continue that, I can heal myself completely?
Thank you. I will work with that.
*Vaw is another concept-word – All-That-Is; the Vastness; Source.
I’m not claiming a miraculous recovery here. This is not an ‘I was lame and now I can walk’ scenario. The improvement was slight, subtle, gentle. As I continue to work with the tools Koimul has given me, I will restore my ‘caw’ at the centre of my Game, where it can be most effective, and at that point the sciatica will have served its purpose and will move away.
