A Meditative Journey

This morning I was focusing on my breath and the quiet place within me, and soon I was in the special garden where I often meet with Krishna and Quan Yin. They asked how I’ve been doing lately and I admitted that I’ve been struggling with my emotions, especially since I haven’t been making time to meditate and find stillness like I need to. They gently prompted me to make that a priority, and then moved on to discuss my vision of the future. I told it to them, but as I was describing it, found that it was very tame. So I suggested that I might need a vision given to me by a guide like them or my Higher Self and they just nodded. Time for speaking was done. They both reached out their hands and passed power and new energetic patterns to me. I sat still and received it gratefully, until they took their hands off and I knew it was time to go.

I was drawn to a cave in another part of the garden. Inside Anubis, the shaman priest of Egypt, was waiting for me. He asked what gift/tribute/token of respect I brought him. I reached into my heart and pulled out a huge black crystal and offered it to him. After examining it briefly, and putting it in one of the creches of the cave, Anubis led me to follow him deeper into the cave and told me I’d be undergoing one of the old Egyptian tests – swimming through a deep trench of water filled with crocodiles. If I swam out of the wrong exit (the easy one) I’d have to go back in. The right exit was deep deep down in the dark.

With trepidation, I agreed to the test and dove in. I focused on swimming down, down, down, instead of on the large, frightening shapes moving above and around me and my own innate fear of drowning. When I finally emerged from the terrifying darkness, it was into a small pool of water surrounded by a lavishly-decorated cave room. There was a bed covered in silk and velvet. The air was perfumed with frankincense and myrrh. Sweets and savories were laid out on a table for me. Lady Bast was waiting to comfort me there. I laid on the bed and she joined me, purring loudly and in a way that vibrated my entire body. I could feel it shaking the fear from my cells. Anubis came in and wordlessly communicated that I had done well and that I was never in any danger because he and other gods and goddesses were watching out for me.

Then he leaned down and kissed me on the forehead, then withdrew again. His kiss left a bright mark of light on my skin and soon the light was spreading in hieroglyphic patterns across my skin, my mind, my internal organs, muscles, ligaments, and bones. As his magic worked, Bast supported it with her purring vibrations, and soon I could feel I was vibrating higher than before. To ground the energy, Bast had me eat some of her food and then step outside the cave to put my feet down in the grass. She shrank into a house cat size and ran off into the garden, and I came back to myself, renewed.

Meeting Your Spirit Guide

I originally posted this elsewhere, but a friend requested that I post it here as well. So, here we go….

Every person has a spirit guide – a friend who helps us along in life, whether or not we realize it. Some people can see their spirit guide, and some cannot, but they are always watching over you, waiting to help.

Sometimes when you’re asleep at night, your own spirit body will travel out on its silver cord to be with your spirit guide. Sometimes you go places together and then dream about them.

Sometimes your spirit guide will whisper to you in your mind. Usually you can hear him or her if you are in some danger and they are warning you to be careful.

From Mountains, Meadows and Moonbeans by Mary Summer Rain

Getting to know your spirit guide more can help you access information about your life that you might not know otherwise. Communication is telepathic, and usually we can become aware of it during meditation, dreams, or just by learning how to focus your thoughts to receive messages. The more you practice, the easier it gets. You are probably doing it already, but not aware of someone’s else’s thoughts versus your own.

The role of your guides is to gently but consistently guide you via intuitive nudges to stay on track with your soul’s purpose. In addition, if something is in your purpose to accomplish, you will find support from your spirit guides in that endeavour. They will hook you up with resources, people, money, books to help you reach your goals. They can offer insight and comfort when you feel lost.

But there is one important condition to the help they can give us and this condition serves us:

Your spirit guides will only help you to accomplish and achieve things that honour the purpose that YOU set for yourself before you incarnated.

Guides will not tell you what to do. They may recommend a course of action that aligns with your path, but they will ultimately leave it up to you. (Source)

To contact your spirit guide, try this exercise:

In a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed, sit comfortably in front of a candle or any spiritual object/symbol that makes you feel safe. You might want to have a pen and paper handy to write down messages you recieve.

As you look at the candle, focus on your breath and on the flame. Imagine a white light surrounding you and protecting you against all negativity. When you feel safe and calm, put out this intention with your mind:

I wish to contact my spirit guide.

You can think it over and over, if it helps you stay focused, or just release the intention out into the ether. Remain focused and wait for your spirit guide to arrive.

When he/she arrives, introduce yourself politely and ask him/her to do the same.

Ask if they have any messages for you and see what they say or what images you see in your mind’s eye, etc.

Thank them for their help and the message.

Allow yourself to come back to the present, and write down anything you want to remember about your guide and the messages you received.

Now that you’ve become aware of your guide, you can acknowledge them and speak to them anytime your mind is calm and receptive. 🙂
