You are a starseed! You contain a holographic “seed packet” of your evolution into the Mind of Light and the energy that directs you toward wholeness. This resonance offers an expanded view of the larger self and new ways of perceiving reality. Through self-acceptance, you are gifted with this journey. Lamat is ignition, like a cosmic milkweed explosion of resonant sparks. It is the launching pad from which you can hear the rumble of the rocket of your accelerated evolution.
The energy of Lamat may be experienced as a gentle rocking that becomes a floating and spiraling sensation, ending in a rush of feeling as you move into expanded reality. This sensation has been described as gently cascading fireworks, shimmering burst on the tapestry of Creation. Cascade into this uncharted perspective. Flow on the cosmic winds wherever Divinity directs, arching back to this reality with a new experience of self.
Lamat's starseeded gift is the revelation of the harmony that unites all things. Instead of just aspiring to be harmonious, become harmony. Practice harmony not just as an abstraction, but as a living reality. This practice blends different energies, thoughts, people, and processes. Act on intuitive guidance as to what to combine and when. As you begin to follow your heart, you will know the feeling of being on the return path to the stars.
Lamat offers you the ability to hold a greatly expanded focus, a unity of awareness that encompasses aspects of the larger constellation of self. An example of this would be a simultaneous awareness of the desires of the existential self and the truth of the Essence Self. This star harmony encompasses the greatly enlarged perspective of your starseeded self, the part within you that holds the potential of your greatest destiny.
The number for Lamat is eight, the number of harmonic resonance, the infinity symbol. Lamat is the harmonic overtone that can show you the return path to the stars. Through attunement to Lamat, the whole universe becomes your keyboard and orchestra. You are the player and the played, the dancer and the danced.
The harmonic wisdom that Lamat embodies is twofold. The first is wavelength fundamental, or the root tone in a harmonic series. Unlike the preceding tones, which were separate and distinct, Lamat begins a more complex harmonic series as it completes the preceding octave. On a spiritual level, Lamat begins the development of higher being. The fundamental tones that occur in this series are of a more expanded frequency that those of the preceding seven tones. In this new octave, there is an alignment in the harmonies of Earth and the harmonies of the stars that are now being sounded on Earth. Lamat is the first in a series of star harmonies that evoke accelerated growth of the starseed potential within you.
The second aspect of Lamat's harmonic wisdom is the use of beneficial combinations. In order to create harmony with several different notes, it is helpful to understand which combinations of notes will work well together. All of the prior seven archetypes have provided lessons and tools that make up the component parts of the chord. Beneficial combinations are created not by the mind but from the heart and divine guidance. To receive these beneficial combinations, access the innocence and wisdom of your divine nature.
One shadow of Lamat is believing in an exclusive path or that there is only one true or right system to bring you to enlightenment. However, your personal path is unique. Listen and learn from all teachers, but know that it is up to you to integrate their wisdom into your own truth. The wise way show-er encourages you to be open to all teachings, to follow your own heart's path.
Another shadow of Lamat is that your life's lessons place you in the midst of disharmonious situations. This may be experienced as living and working with people with whom you feel conflict or friction. Another aspect of this shadow is the judgment that sometimes follows from holding harmony as an ideal. All the ways you walk your path can be steps in the practice of harmony. Enact harmony through your relationships, emotions, environment, and expanded viewpoints.
The transformation offered in the shadow of Lamat is found by becoming aware of the existing harmony or disharmony in your life. Be willing to appreciate or prune where necessary. Call on wisdom and love to facilitate this pruning process. Open more fully to harmony in all aspects of your life. This harmony of self and one's life becomes the foundation of freedom.
You may also judge yourself because you can't seem to remember all that you are. Perhaps you are trying to figure out your purpose, awaken to your destiny, or understand why you came here. Simplify. Look at your present gifts and talents. Free your thoughts and your self-critical nature. You are, in this moment, the sum total of all that you are, have been, and the potential of your complete becoming. Simply be yourself, for only this will open you to the magic of your untapped potential.
