“Having a higher vision is to see the big picture, know the terrain and discern choices. When you have options, you become powerful! Show up at the right place at the right time and find joy.” – Nevine Michaan
Rooms 2, 9 and 4 is shown in the glyph above with its fractals:
From the right eye, Room 2 of Column 2, I look out and see my 3 angles of perception: acute, obtuse and right angle. In Room 3 of 2 and 7 of 2 (note that on the right body, the Magic Square is flipped), my hearing is “around sound” and my sense of smell arouses my memory. In 8 of 2 and 6 of 2, the back of my jaw and the base of my skull support my potential.
In my third eye, 9 of 9 is my portal of revelation. Through my pineal, I communicate with the astral realm as the pinnacle of my personal touches the universal. I gain a mediated vision of concentration and radiance through multifaceted reflection and refraction. In 5 of 9, through pranayama, I access the portal of consciousness. My primal intelligence sniffs out the situation as my sense of smell peaks my memory. Through conscious gratitude, I find the rhythm of my own vibration and connect to the universal beat. In 1 of 9, when I connect my tongue to my upper palette, I conduct currency. Through my mouth, my portal to digestion, I chew, ponder, exercise good judgment and mitigate worry. Through my tongue, I speak, sing, articulate and ventilate my views. My virility and zest for life shows up in my chin. In time, I can sniff a bad deal, see things coming, feel beauty…
In room 4 of 4, I have a vision on the high mountain. My eyes are portals to my pituitary as it moves through my liver and nervous system. It is in the dawning of my innocence that I can see the potential to seize my day, gain perspective and line things up. As my neurology affects my vision, I see different angles of perception: I can be anxious and neurotic when acute, dull and stubborn when obtuse, or satisfied and satiated when at right angle. In 7 of 4 and 3 of 4, my ears are portals to adrenaline. When I am attentive and alert, my competency supports my safety and stability. When I connect my hearing to my breathing, I soothe myself listening to the oceanic sound of my breath and vibrate with the breath of the planet (oceanic tides). In 6 of 4 and 8 of 4, I am embodied in the Magic Cube (which is built from the Magic Square). I vibrate my Magic Sphere and initially through personal tenacity and eventually through graceful, effortless effort, I become spherical, well adjusted to circumstances and well rounded.
In my daily practice, I develop insights to these multifaceted visions and reflections. Using Magic Square wraps, I build an integrated circuit. I learn to self-adjust, follow my dhristi of joy, embody the Magic Cube and awaken my inner teacher. As I train myself to use the wisdom of my organs and sensory faculties through asana, pranayama and meditation, I develop and refine the powers (siddhas) of yoga. I connect my personal hero’s journey, my sutra atman with the Universal Thread. I vibrate a deeper presence to the wisdom and functionality of the universe, which is truly awesome! Discerning its patterns, knowing that I am responsible to mediate polarities inherent in these patterns and through repetition, I develop skills and insights. I live a joyful, easeful and graceful life!
