But what most people have assumed—that mythical creatures are invented creatures of the imagination for fiction and religious stories, I have come to know is not true.
After my third eye opened during the My Karma Ran Over My Dogma saga, one of the things that became apparent is that mythical creatures are real in the energy realms: fairies, gnomes, dragons, merpeople, etc. Sometimes I see them as simply representative metaphors of physical or energetic realities, but more often than not they represent their own realities. My observation is that these mythical creatures usually represent a bridge between realms or dimensions or levels of consciousness—whatever you want to call it.
For example, fairies are depicted and in fact look like winged small humans: half-insect, half-human. Thus, they are a bridge between insect consciousness and human consciousness. They live among the flowers and greenery just like insects do.
What mythical creatures fascinate you? Do a meditation with these beings and see what they have to offer and teach you.
Happy All Hallow’s Eve! or literally, Happy All-is-Holy Eve!
