Owl-Sixth Chakra: I have special eyes to see in the dark, special ways of knowing, to discern Truth. I use my sight and hearing for deep knowing. Reminder: Pay attention to the subtle truth.
Mother Earth: Death is renewal, rebirth. I am the supreme example of renewal, the living, breathing metaphor of rebirth, cleansing, healing.

I Am One Who dances the dance of Life and Death, in whom both are One. I carry the flame of Truth in my hand. My dance is so powerful that the very Earth melts and precious stones are formed. Fear Not! All is in Divine Order.
