At pranam while putting my head in the Mothers lap I heard a voice. It was felt to be the Mothers. Did she really say something to me inwardly or was it a mere illusion?
It may have been that the Mother conveyed something to you. At this moment she does not remember.
Can one rely solely on the voice from within and be thus guided by the Mother?
If it is the Mother’s voice; but you have to be sure of that.
During yesterday’s meditation, I perceived first only the pistils of the flower whose significance is given by the Mother as ‘Psychic Prayer’ (Habranthus robustus Zephyranthes). They were all moving and playing into each other harmoniously and joyfully. Afterwards the petals also appeared. What does this vision mean?
I suppose it meant simply a happy activity of the force represented by the flower.
Here is another vision: the flower meaning ‘Consciousness turned towards the light’ (Sunflower) is supporting an enormous weight which is trying to press it down but which it yet bears.
It signifies, I suppose, the pressure of the work for the transformation which the consciousness is able to bear because it is turned to the Light.
In the evening just before the Mother came down for a collective Meditation I saw the flower signifying ‘Fire in the Mind’ (Poinciana pulcherrima). At first it appeared as a bud and then slowly it opened out. Has the vision any connection with my sadhana?
It means, I suppose, what is intended to happen — what was preparing before this inertia came — the opening of the dynamic light and force in the Mind.
Standing before your photo in the Reception room, the flower named by the Mother as ‘Peace in the Cells’ (Ixora thwaitesii), came to me as if floating before my inner sight. Why are so many flowers being seen these days?
It is usually when the psychic is active that this seeing of flowers becomes abundant.
