I am not saying that this coincidence by itself, this vivid meditation one day and then entering a coffee shop the next day with pomegranate meditations covering the walls, was not something that I should consider on its own to be synchronisitic, I definitely think that it is, or that synchronicity events do not always happen around, I think that they do... but this was a special time for me and because of this coincidence I looked up the symbolism of pomegranates. I saw that this fruit represented a good many spiritually symbolic things but one of them was rebirth and this was at a time that meaning meant something to me.
I have said this before on this site: when I first started meditating I did receive many vivid meditations and then my meditations got less vivid for me. I still did them and still received meaning from them even though the pictures were less intense.
I say this to say that it is still infrequent for me to receive full vivid meditations with real pictures.
Last night I brought home some pure pomegranate juice. I finished my 100% pure black cherry juice, which is a high antioxidant berry and then I had two cups of the pomegranate juice. I woke up in the middle of the night wanting more. You know how your body knows it wants something and it craves it, it was like that.
Today at the park I was walking my dog and we stopped and sat by some ducks on a log near some water. This is a place that I used to come and begin my prayer walk, so in this location I have said lots of prayers to god and also have heard from god as well. It is actually a very special place to me now that I think about it. Anyway, I started to see visualizations as I sat on the log. They were not vivid but they were made of light and swirled in patterns like you see in many meditation posters and artwork etc. I covered my eyes and saw new color variations, I pressed on my eyes and saw even further color variations, I uncovered my eyes again for even more color variations. By the end of it I was seeing almost vividly. I was seeing again pomegranates and fruit formations, for example a cut open orange spinning around, but it was as if the inside of the fruit was being formed as it swirled with its middle in front of my eyes, again similar to meditation posters that you may see, (which looks completely different when it is authentic from the brain and perhaps may be different for everyone?) The formations that were created before my third eye were definitely of the pomegranate as well as other fruit. It was fully animated and active, definite formations, color patterns, pulp and light.
(The paragraph above talks about the meditation I had at the end of my walk, but I also had another good meditation while walking, it wasn't vivid, but it was transportative if that makes sense. I was actually taken away (in my mind) by the experience, as if I was having a dream while I was walking and receiving a message from that dream, but in the form of symbolic story rather than words or specific message. - I add this part to reinforce the fact that my mind was active and receiving images/whatever you want to call it/spiritual messages/dealing with consciousness.)
So.... during the end of the meditation I was having sitting by those ducks, when I started seeing the pomegranate, I want to say I knew that it was because of the drink that I had experienced a more intense meditation experience than normal. But I don't know that for sure, the thought came to my mind though, and I do think it has something to do with it.
After pondering this I also started thinking, as I have thought many times before, if I cut some things out of my intake that affects my body and brain and put more things in it like this pomegranate and dark cherry juice, I will continue to have clearer visualizations and this equals a healthier consciousness.
Are there any thoughts on this?
