Notes from Emerald Starr of Village Jasri, East Bali, near volcano:
Vulcanologists are baffled by Agung’s behavior. According to experts, Agung is not acting like other same-type volcanoes in Indonesia. The Balinese believe it’s because of all the prayers and deep connection they have with the Niskala (unseen) dimension.
The volcano is filled with powerful forces, just like our souls. We can direct them in healing or destructive ways, just like Mt Agung. Volcanic ash provides essential nutrients for life; small amounts are beneficial, large amounts are toxic for a period of time until it can be dispersed & assimilated. This is similar to human emotions.
Agung is a vent for some of the most powerful forces of nature. In our meditations we can draw upon this awesome energy to support our evolution and awakening consciousness. Imagine a funnel above your head pouring these universal forces into your third eye & heart.
