In meditation an unfamiliar word and image came into my mindful state. The word was ‘Pegasus’ and the vision of it was peaceful.
Looking up the the symbolic meaning of Pegasus learned it represents an aspect of what I have been practicing and mentoring for the past decade! Pegasus represents our brains hippocampus, the place of memory.
It is the point in our brain which empathy can transform reactions of survival: fight, flight or fright into calmer states. When this happens we remember who we are and where we are going – mindfulness (what is meaningful to us replacing the reaction). Empathy can help us to access our higher self by being able to understand our internal reaction and respond with this conscious awareness versus an automatic reaction that creates separation.
In one description I read ‘Pegasus represents communication’ that transforms evil! I have enjoyed reading the historical interpretations of Pegasus and coming away with an opinion that it may reflect a new consciousness for many of us. A consciousness that includes the skill set of mindfulness to better understand how to transform our own inner agitation that inflicts violence on ourselves and others.
