118 - Pale Coral / Pale Violet - Echo
In the wake of this tumultuous, uncertain time, the arrival of Echo on May 14, 2020, can support us in finding the gold within, loving ourselves and letting go of fear.
When we look into the Pale Coral we immediately think of unrequited love and the story of Narcissus. Narcissus, well known for falling in love with his own reflection, was the object of desire of a mountain nymph, Echo. Narcissus went out hunting and when he became lost and alone he cried out for his friends 'Where are you?'. Having followed him into the woods Echo saw her opportunity to approach him however she could only repeat his words. In desperation, Echo ran to Narcissus and threw herself upon him only to find her advances rejected and her love unrequited.
Many years previously Hera, wife of Zeus, had taken Echo's voice, her ability to speak in a lucid way as she was jealous of her husband's visits to the mountains and the nymphs who lived there. To avoid Hera's capture and jealous rage Zeus called upon Echo to intercept his wife with her golden tongue. When Hera realised what Echo had done she stole her voice and cursed Echo to only be able to repeat what she heard. In her actions, Hera thwarted Echo's ability to later express her love for Narcissus.
Pan, who was used to asserting himself over the nymphs or the goddesses of the time, fell deeply in love with Echo, however, Echo did not feel the same way and Pan's love was also to be unrequited. Pan was so angry at her rejection that he instructed his shepherds to tear Echo to pieces. Gaia, the Earth Mother, who had been witness to everything, knew everything that had happened with Hera, with Narcissus, and that had culminated with her murder at Pan's behest, and had a lot of compassion towards Echo. Gaia decided to commemorate Echo and her golden voice throughout the whole of her own being. Leaving a small piece of her in every corner of the Earth, in the wind, the trees, even in dark cold caves, so wherever we hear an echo we are reminded of Gaia's compassion towards Echo, and the compassion we should have for each other and the Earth.
When we think about this Story of Echo and the unrequited love of the Pale Coral and apply that to our own situation and think about when our love is most unrequited we might see it's often within ourselves. We find it so difficult to love ourselves as we bring so much judgement to ourselves. By making that unrequited love more conscious, by showing more compassion to ourselves and suspending the judgement of ourselves, then we might become more conscious in our relationship with ourselves. Judgement happens all too easily, it happens all too frequently and in that judgement, we deny so much of ourselves, and we become fragmented.
In Echo there is a synchronicity and a deepening of the process that began with Pan; with Pan, we found empowerment as the spirit in nature. Now Pan has another aspect, what we see in this bottle and the fragmentation of Echo is the potential for resolution.
The resolution comes in so many levels: the Pale Violet has always been a deep level of transmutation. This transmutation is associated with the Master, St Germain, but it is also a transmutation at a cellular level. This situation that humanity's been facing has a deceptive quality along with its own reality because of the fear that has been generated around something which is the opposite of the Pale Violet, the Yellow, that fear, in its intense form has almost spread like a plague across the world. This fear has become a global phenomenon, as media, social media, and all of the different ideas and opinions that have been expanded through all of these mediums and with all the different views that have gone along with it; the fear has been compounded. The collective fear has touched almost everyone and the Pale Violet, the opposite of the Yellow, offers the antidote.
