in Touch with Your Spiritual Guidance
When I was learning how
to do it, I was very young and thought I was talking to a ghost.
I was a very stressed person and I was being taught to meditate
by this voice I heard every night in those few moments before
sleep. This is what I was taught to do.
First, close your eyes and get comfortable.
Second, focus attention on your feet. Imagine them as wax, and
then feel them melt - no heat, just melting. Imagine the bones
slowly melting into the bed. continue to draw your attention
higher, to body parts not yet melted and melt the wax as you
move your attention upward until you can no longer hold your
attention to the task of melting. This is the point where your
attention is shifting to the subconscious.
Around this time, gently prompt your
attention to your breathing, elongating each breath just slightly
until you attention wanders from that as well. There will be
a spinning sensation. This is the moment to simply feel.. attention
isn't anywhere in particular. You just feel.
In your mind, create a place here,
just for you. It's a place of rest and healing - for you and
your Creator, a place you control and is protected by the Creator/Source.
Create yourself to be aware of it at all times, waking and non-waking.
This is your place. In this place, create a bench. This will
be the meeting spot for you and your guidance. Then sit on the
bench and wait. To this day - if I'm having trouble in other
forms of meditation, this form always works for me.
To come out of it, gently begin moving
your body... and I do mean gently. Remember, you melted everything.
I just love the melting wax analogy
to this. Ever since I can remember I have hit a point just before
sleep that feels like my body is just vanishing, it more or
less just dissolves itself until I am in a state of consciousness
on the brink of hovering. As a child I used to play a game with
myself and hold that awareness while letting my body go. I would
think about where my hands and feet etc. should be, and be conscious
about *not* being able to feel them. It's a state where everything
around is suspended, time stops, and with it the external environment.
My awareness is all that exists. Then I would journey, or enter
into the Dream Lodge, whichever appealed to me most. I still
The sensation is one of total peace,
no pain, no worry, no negative connotations to anything. Nor
are there really any positive aspects to it. It's just BE-ing,
neutral, there, and as the sub-consciousness comes into this
awareness the will takes control. At that point, intent creates
the positive energy channel and mobility is achieved. When you
mentioned wax melting I thought about this and that's a lot
like the sense I have of dissolving. Silver Eagle, are you a
Fire sign? It almost sounds like you were in the heart of Fire
where there was no hot or cold...just BE-ing in it.
I had a voice come to me back then
too. Sometimes it was my own voice echoing around me and I knew
that was the voice of my inner spirit...the true me...but there
were other times when I heard the voice of a woman I didn't
know...a Guide...and a man I didn't know...another Guide...and
then a group of voices that would all talk at the same time
saying the same thing in harmony, almost like a choir sings.
There was a lot of *we* being used, we got through, we want
you to..., we are here to show you..., that type of thing, and
it's how I began to learn about the spirit world. I wasn't afraid,
they were gentle voices, firm at times but not intimidating,
I just knew they meant business and it was time to stop playing
with them and get serious. I never questioned them because I
was so young and innocent, life hadn't parted realities for
me yet. By this I mean that the world of a child and the ability
to slip into alternate realities at a moment's notice was still
intact. I was 5yrs old when it started, at least my recollection
of it began then. Because I kept it a secret no one told me
I was wrong. I trusted in the experiences and the reality they
held for me. Most people are told that their imaginary friends
and their pretend worlds are something they need to put behind
them, that it's time to *grow up*. The trouble with this is
that those friends aren't imagined, and those worlds aren't
Growing up means shutting the door
on them, tucking them away deep inside where the shadows hide
them. The child knows deep inside there is reality to them and
they hide it away. As they *grow up* they forget about it because
they think of it as a plaything. As an adult you have to get
back in touch with that part of yourself, that door has to reopen,
you have to shine a light on that shadow and let it come out.
As an adult you have to realize that what you played with as
a child was not just a toy...it was a gateway...your gateway,
and you can use it anytime you want to. I think where people
have such trouble with this is that they get confused by the
exercises in books, or the methods others give them to do this.
They think that's the only way it can be done. The truth is
there are an unlimited number of ways to accomplish this, and
our blindness comes from our tunnel vision. Unless someone tells
us that we can use our own methods, our own memory to unlock
that door, we have to figure it out for ourselves. Some never
do. But the tucking away of our childhood like this is the blockage
that we all have to breakthrough initially. Sometimes that is
as easy as remembering. *Smile*
Thanks SEDD, a point well made!
for listening to your Guides or Angels. I was at a course a
couple of weekends ago, and this meditation was shared with
me as a way of learning to listen to what our Guides or Angels
are trying to tell us. Make sure to have a pad of paper and
a pen handy to write things down on! (I went very quickly through
the colors of the chakras; there are some excellent chakra meditations
and explanations on this site if you need help with the location
of each chakra)
in a comfortable position, start by taking a few deep breaths,
in through your nose and out through your mouth, letting the
tensions of the day just float away from you with every breath.
Then imagine a cord running from the base of your spine, down
through the floor, through the dirt and stones, connecting into
the center of the earth. Now imagine another cord running from
the soles of your feet, going down through the earth to the
center. Allow the earth's energy to flow up these cords, clearing
and cleansing your energy pathways. When you feel grounded and
connected to the earth, imagine there's a cord running from
your crown chakra (top of your head) reaching towards the sky,
towards the moon and the stars, towards the sun, and the universes
connecting you to the Creator of all That Is. Allow
that energy to flow back towards you, releasing and clearing
any blockages you may have.
earth energy and sky energy to flow at the same time, meeting
in your chest area, and imagine it "spilling" over
yourself, wrapping around you, surrounding you with love. Next
we're going to visualize our chakras. Starting at the base,
we see a beautiful red, we move up to see bright orange, then
a sunny yellow, an apple green, a vibrant blue, then a rich
indigo color. At the crown chakra, we see a golden circle. Then
a gold circle appears in front of our third eye, and then at
the back of our third eye (behind our head). A line appears
at the top, connecting the crown sphere to the third eye sphere,
then from the crown to the back of the head, and then a line
connecting the third eye, front and back. There is now a perfect
triangle formed between your third eye, front and back, and
your crown chakra. Feel the energy of this for a moment. Now
imagine there's a gold sphere beside each ear, and one in front
of your throat chakra. Connect them from the throat to each
ear, and then connect the ears. You have another triangle, this
one inverted. See the two triangles in your mind, feel the energies
of the triangles and start to listen. Ask for a message from
your Angels or Guides. Messages can come in many different ways;
it could be words, it could be images, smells, sounds, or a
touch on the cheek. Even if you don't feel you received a message,
trust that there was one, and give thanks for it. Perhaps a
message will come to you that night in your dreams, or you'll
be pulled to a certain magazine or book with a message in it
a few times, and let me know how it feels, and how it works
for you! I know the second time I did this, there was an amazing
connection; when I connected the first triangle, it felt like
a sunburst in and around me. Warmth without heat, if that makes
sense, and a feeling of total love and support.
