The symbol of the lion and the unicorn appear prominently on the British passport, and elsewhere. It’s the coat of arms of the UK and of Queen Elizabeth, which shows that she owns all us UK citizens.
In Bath, the lion and unicorn are carved over entrances to important buildings, often elaborately painted. The lion is always on the left and the unicorn on the right, and there is a shield inbetween. Sometimes the lion has a crown, sometimes the unicorn is chained.
I think this represents the left and right brain. The left brain is the rational logical MIND. The right brain is our more creative colourful HEART side. The left brain is currently king, and the right brain is controlled, shackled, diminished. Access between the two is blocked or limited by the shield. The majority of humanity is running along with the right brain shackled and the left brain overly dominant. This imbalance has been deliberately created by the personae that is our ruler, the Queen.
As if to emphasise the idea of right and left, the motto under the lion and the unicorn is DIEU ET MON DROIT. It’s French which is a bit odd for the UK coat of arms, as English is our national language, don’t they know that? It means GOD AND MY RIGHT. Maybe GOD is the lion. And MY RIGHT is the unicorn.
The unicorn has a spiral horn growing out of his third eye, like an antennae, so the unicorn also represents the third eye that we don’t use, our psychic ability. The unicorn is white, signifying that the chakra are not separated, but locked up as one, the power is there, but unused, imprisoned. The crown around the Unicorn’s neck symbolises a blocking of the throat chakra, the voice. Because our masters do not want us to speak, to be heard, we must just obey.
We need to free the unicorn and get rid of the shield! Our brain needs to have a balance between left and right with good communication between the two. We still need our lion side, but not as the ruler.
I just saw an ad for Spring Breakers, a new film. The only thing I like about it is that it confirms my lion and unicorn theory! A pornographic style female wears a green bikini, a pink balaclava, and has a gun in her left hand. Strange costume. The interesting bit is that on the balaclava, just where her third eye would be, there is a motif of a unicorn head! The woman looks vulnerable, frightened, imprisoned, and unhappy, and probably has all chakras unfunctioning. Her top three chakras are blocked by the somewhat imprisoning hat, for a start. The fact that she has a gun shows that she has no faith in her psychic ability or any other power within, and that she lives in fear. She needs to free the Unicorn too.
I visited Lacock Abbey this week, and unexpectedly came across a beautiful white unicorn. It’s in the central grass square of the Cloisters. The Unicorn is cloistered! All the other art exhibits were free in the gardens amongst the trees. A notice about the cloisters described how the grass square would always be kept green, “green is the key”, because green was needed to reset the Nuns after too much cloistering. Green is the colour of the heart chakra, the one we can access via the Unicorn, our right brain. I notice I feel a craving for green if I don’t get enough of it, this time of year it’s very welcome after the winter, and I also notice it after I have spent weeks by the sea with more predominance of blue.
The swan, like the unicorn, is sometimes depicted with something tied round its neck, a crown, or a handkerchief. The blocked throat chakra, the mute swan. The swan is also white like the unicorn, so symbolises unused, imprisoned chakra. Anything that’s symbolically white is starting to look a bit questionable. And one of the biggest sacrifices of all is of course the Bride. All dressed in white, approaching the altar to alter her.
