I sat down with my laptop to write, and then became completely mesmerized by the late April snow falling outside my window. In that moment, the direction for my article totally changed.
For six weeks, I had been in Oslo, Norway, attending New Equations workshops, participating in group and individual training sessions, and engaging in personal exercises to expand my nine Spiritual Portals. Now I found myself wondering how each Soultype’s unique perspective could enhance the beauty of the twirling snowflakes. I decided to find out.
I immersed myself in New Equations Music and the new exercises I had learned. One at a time, I opened myself to the world of a Soultype and perceived the snowfall through its lens. I took videos and photos to help me tell my story.
Soultype 1: I marveled at the pristine beauty of the falling snow, embracing its purity and the complete expression of the Source reflected in the natural world.
Soultype 2: The millions of dancing snowflakes invited me to become one with their lively, joyful dance, igniting a desire in me to join their playful whirl.
Soultype 3: Captivated by the intricate design of a tree’s trunk and branches, I appreciated the delicate details adorned by the settling snow.
Soultype 4: My attention was drawn to a neighbor’s balcony. The unique arrangement of decorative objects on the balcony stirred a deep curiosity within me about who lived there. I wanted to get to know them!
Soultype 5: In peace, I walked around my apartment and noticed that through a different window, a striking scene was unfolding. The trees, buildings, falling snow, and droplets on the window were shaping patterns and connections and merging into a magnificent scene.
Soultype 6: I felt the snowflakes come alive, each one marking a distinct moment in time. I became aware of the flight of birds through the wind and snow, adding their unique messages to the world around me.
Soultype 7: I sought a completely fresh perspective. I stepped onto the balcony and took photos through lightbulbs hanging from the railing. This lens revealed a new discovery: the diverse shapes of the luminescent snow crystals. Against a backdrop of snow-covered trees, it was fun to see!
Soultype 8: The snowflakes became irresistible. I let them fall with their delicate touch and coolness onto my hands, arms, and face. Focusing on the trunk of a nearby tree where it disappeared beneath the snow, I felt an integral part of this fantastic spring snow event.
Soultype 9: I breathed deeply. A profound sense of being carried by breath with the countless flakes embraced me. The very breath of nature gracefully carried us from one place to another with an ethereal magic.
