Pomona is the Roman goddess of fruiting trees and orchards. She watches over and protects fruit trees and cares for their cultivation. She is the Goddess of plants, herbs, crops, and harvest. In olden times, some of the crop was given to her for sharing with those without.
I am sharing with you one of the meditations from our New Moon meditation from several nights ago. Pamona took us on a short journey to see what plants or trees we were connected with, and why. Most of us saw a little story/movie around each tree or plant that we were connected with. You can do this meditation at any time. Please do this in sacred space or protected space.
“Dearest ones! Welcome. Take a deep breath in and out three or four times to relax your body. Shrug your shoulders and loosen them from the tension of the day. Move your neck around to loosen it.
Now, settle in comfortably for the journey. Close your eyes and breath slowly. Find your way to your safe place – the place you go when you meditate. It may be the spot by the river, on a rock. Or, it may be a sandy beach, or up on ledge on a mountain side. Or, it may be a small clearing by a waterfall. Where ever it is, go there now. As you go, know that your guardian angel walks with you and that some of your other Angels that walk with you are staying in guarding position. You are safe! You have nothing to fear. You may go to this place to do the work that you need to do.
When you get to your spot, get settled. Sit down and look around. Breath in the clean, fresh air. Know that this is a place where magic happens. As you sit there, you begin to hear the sounds of bells and some tinkling. You may hear the sound of some quiet drumming. And, you hear laughter. A beautiful, tall lady comes into view. She is surrounded by small children who are laughing and playing instruments – drums, bells, little chimes – and she is surrounded by small birds and animals. The entourage seems filled with love and joy.
You realize as she gets closer that Pamona must be six feet tall, and that she is not slender, but well rounded and muscular. She also looks very loving and kind. You begin to feel a little bit of awe.
Pamona and her group surround you and begin dancing and singing around you. You hear her say that she will connect you with the times that you were responsible for trees, fruit, plants, and perhaps, harvest. She sings you to the points in time where you were one with a tree or plant.
Now, you will have a time of silence to connect to these memories in your cells. In three to five minutes, you will be called back to your safe place.
Slowly, you come back from your journey with Pamona. You are completely aware of the times that you had a special connection with a different tree, or herb, or other plant. She and her group smile on you, and she touches your forehead, before they all disappear into the forest.
You shake your self and plant the memories firmly in your mind. Then slowly, you come back to the now moment, and shrug your shoulders, and then open your eyes.
You give thanks to Pamona for her gift of memory, and thank Creator for the wondrous life that you have.
When you are back, it is a good idea to ground. If you have time, write a quick synopsis of your meditation in your journal.
