Sarasvati Spoke to Me
After receiving an attunement for being a professional intuitive (well, being overwhelmed by the urge and giving in), during my daily meditation, I started receiving messages and being visited by beings who identified themselves as archangels. Archangel Metatron was the first. I was a bit disbelieving, honestly, having never been much of a believer in archangels. When someone visits you and claims to be an archangel and seems like the real deal (as best you can tell, anyway), though, you do your research. I looked up Metatron, whom I had only ever even heard of once or twice. Everything he told me and every impression I had received about him was confirmed by the research I did. I was shaken. An archangel had spoken to me? Why? Over the next few weeks, it happened again. I kept working with Metatron, who had told me in that first visit that we had a lot of work to do together.
During or soon after my attunement, I had also met a group of robed and hooded figures who always sat in a circle and helped me, answering questions, boosting the power of an activity I was trying to do, or simply meditating in silence with me. When it finally occurred to me to ask their names, I was given no specific name but was given the impression that they were ascended masters. I had absolutely no idea what that meant, so, yet again, after that meditation session, I had to do some research. Who/What in the world are ascended masters? And why they heck are they working with little ol’ me?!
Okay, so given those “spooky” occurrences, I eventually found myself in possession of Doreen Virtue’s book Archangels & Ascended Masters and began reading it immediately. In her book, Virtue briefly describes each archangel and ascended master, and her encounter of each, plus gives a way to call in the divinity, as she calls them.
After reading about half of the book, I was intrigued but ultimately unsatisfied with the small amount of information offered for each divinity, so I decided to experiment. Each week, in my meditations, I would speak with a different archangel or ascended master, to have my own experience of him or her, and I would share the wisdom of these divinities with you, my readers.
I began by going through Virtue’s book and creating a list of divinities I wanted to speak with, in mostly alphabetical order. I thus began with Abundantia (Fulla). But then I discovered that they often came through in whatever order they wanted—sometimes, a certain personality wanted to come through, to jump the line, always introduced by the previous divinity, so I knew what to expect, and I took them in that order, modifying my list. On my last planned day speaking with Apollo, I was told that Athena next wanted to speak with me. I hadn’t even planned to speak with her, so this was a bit surprising, but I went with it and adjusted my plans. I figure if a divinity wants to speak with me and goes so far as to “phone ahead” for me to schedule it, I’d best do so. It’s only polite. 🙂
I’ve been having these conversations for several months now.
I followed the process that I do when I do written readings: automatic writing. I type my questions, thoughts, feelings, impressions, and “wait” for the divinity to come through. Usually, though, they’re waiting on me. I can sense them as soon as I think of them, but I feel I need to get myself centered and ready.
I type their responses, fully in the moment of the conversation, though usually once I’m done, I remember only hazy fragments of the conversation. It’s always been this way for me, which is why I began the process of automatic writing years ago—I would be left knowing that I’d just been given important wisdom, but I’d be unable to remember much of the content of the conversation. Automatic writing allows me to go back and see the conversation, and I have it to refer to later. Even with years of practice, I still have problems remembering everything I learned while “in the zone.” The emotions and the key lessons are still in my body, but the specific words aren’t.
Once the divinity is gone, I feel the presence “lift.” It’s kind of like a blind/window shade being opened and my own consciousness fully returning.
So … my original plan had been to begin sharing these conversations with you in the order they happened, and in several more months, after I was done sharing information about 2016’s journal entries. But this week, I had a surprising visit, and I keep being prompted to share details of it with you, so here we are. After all, my journey is all about learning how to listen to and follow the promptings of Spirit.
As I was saying my affirmations this morning, I was told that Sarasvati would be visiting. I found this odd because she hadn’t been introduced by someone else, as is typically the case, and she isn’t in Virtue’s book. Still, I had taken on Sarasvati’s name as part of my magical name many years ago, aiming to be more like her, but I know very little about her, only that she was a goddess of self-knowledge. That was why I took her name so long ago—because I understood that I needed greater self-knowledge and wisdom to go along with my knowledge. Still, it was somewhat surprising to me that she announced that she wanted to come through. Of course, those who come through to speak to me have their own reasons that probably wouldn’t be surprising if I knew them.
I take a few minutes to align myself with her energy, trying not to panic because I know almost nothing about her and “can’t have a good conversation with her.” (Yes, I’m laughing at myself.) And then I begin.
Thank you, kind Sarasvati, for coming to speak with me.
She only tilts her head quietly, acknowledging my thanks.
What may I do for you today, sweet Sarasvati?
She smiles. She still is not speaking, but I feel a lovely pulsing through my body that reminds me of light-purple flowers and gentle waters. She says she came because I called her. That’s interesting, because I didn’t realize I had.
Dear Sarasvati (I can’t seem to be able to say her name without some sort of endearment before it), do you have a message you would like to share with the people who will be reading this?
Peace, dear ones. (Her voice is very faint, sweet, kind.) Peace. You fret so, and worry so, but it need not be. Love yourselves, and love each other . . .
As she speaks, I still feel the pulsing, and it’s almost like she herself is floating in front of me—like she’s floating in water, yet I don’t see the water, only her. I feel like light, gentle waves are lapping over me, constantly washing away the tension and bringing in calm, love, and peace. Definitely a sense of water, and of the cleansing and restoration of water.
Sarasvati dear, I know very little about your history, your origin, your legend. Is there anything about it that you would like to share with me or with others through me?
No. My origin is unimportant. What is important is now, the current moment. (I feel very near to tears—sweet tears, but also with a little bit of sorrow, like she’s disappointed in us, or like I’m a little ashamed or sad to hear the disappointment in her voice.)
Right now, you must love yourselves and support each other. Times are never so bad that you must harm each other, never so drab and dull that there is no joy to be found, no love. Embrace each other, sweetheart, in kindness, and lift each other up. The time is now to unite in love.
And then she was gone. I whispered my thanks:
Thank you, dearest mother.
As typically happens when I know little about a divinity who has spoken with me, I’m curious about the impressions I received. In this case, the feeling of water had been very powerful, causing my body to physically move, so I wanted to understand why I had received that feeling. So I began searching for information about Sarasvati.
She is a Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, arts, wisdom, and learning. Wikipedia says of her name:
Saraswati, sometimes spelled Sarasvati, is a Sanskrit fusion word of Sāra, which means essence, and Sva, which means one self, the fused word meaning “essence of one self”, and Saraswati meaning “one who leads to essence of self knowledge”. It is also a Sanskrit composite word of surasa-vati, which means “one with plenty of water.” “The word Saraswati appears both as a reference to a river and as a significant deity in the Rigveda.” “Saraswati then connotes a river deity. In Book 2, Rigveda calls Saraswati as the best of mothers, of rivers, of goddesses.”
Of course, I laughed when I read that. No matter how much I now trust my abilities to receive such information, no matter how many readings I do for others, or meditations for myself, I’m always, always taken by surprise by something. It’s like I finish the meditation or reading and think, Is that right? That can’t be right, can it? I must be misunderstanding … Or I think, That’s interesting. I never knew that before. Have other people had this experience?
Also from Wikipedia:
Saraswati is celebrated as a feminine deity with healing, purifying powers of abundant, flowing waters in Book 10 of Rigveda, as follows:
May the waters, the mothers, cleanse us,
may they who purify with butter, purify us with butter,
for these goddesses bear away defilement,
I come up out of them pure and cleansed.
–Translated by John Muir
What a lovely way to start the day. I come up out of the waters pure and cleansed.
