Follow the Light
It is said that souls travel on beams of light, which is why lanterns are an important part of most Festivals of the Dead.
Prompt: You are a disembodied soul. What forms of light would you be riding and where would that light take you?
You are the season of Autumn, the archetype if you will. Decribe your experience of stepping into the place Summer has held. How do you see yourself or your life’s purpose?
Through the Mists of May
There are many portals into the Otherworld; caves, lakes, wells and mist are just a few.
It is early on May Day morn. Parched from a night of merry making you arise from your bed of leaves and set forth in the direction of the lake. The morning mist surrounds you. Heavy dew drops drip from your hair. Your cloths cling to your body. Have you lost your way? The landscape is unfamiliar.
Suddenly, a flash of blue. There behind that ancient Oak. You have entered the Land of the Faye. People do not stumble into this land, they are only invited. What do the Faery Folk want of you?
Be a tree
This one is in honor of Arbor Day on Friday, April 24th.
If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?
What kind of soil would you prefer? Sandy and well draining? Rich and tightly packed?
What about water level and humidity (tip; water is commonly a symbol of the emotional body)?
Would your trunk and branches be gnarled and twisted from always bending to the wind (or to others)?
Would you be in a grove or solitary? Would you be fruit, flower or nut bearing?
Describe yourself as a tree, or draw a picture if you are a visual artist.
If you like you can name this new species.
World within a reflection.
You’ve found a mirror which is a doorway to another world. How do you experience that world?
Is is sharp or cold?
Do all mirrors connect to this world or can you only experience what it’s surface has reflected?
Imagine a world with no red.
The world government has outlawed the color red. No red paint or dye is available. How would that affect your life?
Now think of the color red as emotion. What would the world be like with no passion or anger?
