Today must have been a day for it! These times energetically are very strong and rich and deep, and hold countless mysteries! So much release and healing is available to us, even beyond our comprehension.
I’m supposed to pick up a friend for lunch in about an hour and I sit down to meditate, not with an intention to Journey, but Spirit has other ideas. Long story short, I am late for picking up my friend but she totally understands when I explain.
I gather my familiar sacred objects. First, I use my rain stick… the feel and the sound of it so incredibly soothing like water moving through my fingers or as the name implies, like rain falling down gently. I feel myself loosen from head down to toe, and breathe with the rhythm of the rain. My rose quartz polished crystal sphere is in my lap, bringing its gentle yet strong loving energy to my whole being. I shake my beloved silver angel chimes all around my head and neck and up and down my body in a repetitive cycle to invite the flow of energy and to continue the process of releasing and clearing my inner and outer energy fields.
Next I engage in my Theta WHAT IF…? Tapping process to shift and transform some limiting beliefs into expansive thoughts. I know what they all are, they are familiar and so this is an intuitive rather than a highly structured process. I know the way by heart. I experience a lot of yawning, sighing, and tearing of my eyes while so much energy is released as the thoughts shift and my subconscious releases them into higher thought. Then once again I bring my angel chimes into my experience shaking them up and down and all around my body head and neck feeling the gentle tingles as energy is stimulated to move.
Then just as night follows day, I close my eyes and begin my mantra meditation, a four-plus decades-old practice for me that feels like Home. I settle into quiet easily breathing, softly returning my focus to my sacred Mantra each time it wanders off in the direction of another thought.
Then, quite spontaneously and, actually surprising to me…to my conscious mind that is… I’m sitting on a river bank and at some point, I am brought into the Waters of the river which are flowing quite rapidly.
I relax, making a conscious decision to go with the flow and begin to Journey on the river, trusting that I am safe and am being led in a direction which is important for me to explore.
This strong, broad, swift-moving river ultimately flows into a small, serene lake that somehow feels familiar to me. I relax, no longer moving at the pace of the river, and float for a while looking up at the sky. Eventually I climb out of the water onto a dock and I walk over toward three familiar and comfortable Adirondack chairs, right there on the grassy lakeshore. I sit in the chair in the middle, taking a breath, dropping all tension from my body, and relaxing. gratefully
I am sitting quietly with my eyes closed, silent and settling into the quiet of the lakeshore, after the energy of the Journey on the water, when two loved ones from whom I distant with considerable discord these days, appear in the two chairs on either side of me. Without any verbal acknowledgement, and without even looking at each other, we gently touch hands on the smooth wooden arms of the chairs for a while, wordlessly affirming our love for one another.
After a bit of time has passed, and knowing that we are enough, I slowly, gently stand up and say, “I’m going home now.” And I walk away.
Spirit you are something! You unfailingly lead me where I don’t even know that I need to go, and that is the beauty of Journeying… and surrendering to the Journey. Thank you thank you thank you.
I encourage you to spend some time thinking about this Journey of mine, and even use it as a mini-prototype to take a Journey of your own led by Spirit.
Or if you wish, contact me and I will be your shamanic guide to take a lengthier Journey to explore and heal the issues that may be up for you these days, asking for your loving attention.
There is so much healing and relief and wholeness to be accessed in a variety of ways.
I would love to read your Comments. And…
As always, I hope you SPARKLE!
