Alcyone is a brilliant star, emitting a thousand time the light of our Sun. Early arabic astronomers gave it names meaning Central One, Bright One and Walnut. For Indians it was Arundhati, wife of Vashishtha or Brahma who with their six sons are the seven rishis who make up the seven stars of the Plough. The name Alcyone was thought by the ancient Greeks be connected with Halcyon, the kingfisher. In one of their myths Alcyone lost her husband in a storm at sea and the gods, taking pity on them both, changed them into kingfishers. Ever since there have been seven days of calm, the halcyon days, around the winter solstice.
Sananda guides you to the inner city and to its fountain of light where you may experience movement and stillness in one. Then the focus moves to connections with all who may share a quality of stillness with you. The connections expand to include your friends from the inner city of light and the angelic realms, adding to the sense of stillness. From there you begin to explore the threshold at which the timelessness of the Divine Self moves into the world of time and space.
