Here is a shamanic journey meditation that I have been doing this week to help stay in the flow. For newcomers to the journeying meditation process, this is merely a perceptual shift in consciousness that freely allows us to turn inward and access inner peace. In the spirit of co-creating peace on Earth and the Universe at large, we need to start with ourselves. Given the scientific and spiritual truth that we are all connected, we are literally cut from the same cloth. While some might feel small and insignificant, the reality is that we are consciousness, rather than what consciousness has identified with. In this Light, we embody the presence of the expanding Cosmos. From this perspective, we are powerful and grand. But not in an egocentric sense, for that is always small regardless of how inflated or deflated.
*Start drumming to a consistent beat. Relax and breathe. This is very important.
*Picture a whale in your imagination and feel its energy in your Being.
*Ask whale for guidance in an area that you need help with. Being specific with your question is helpful.
*Continue drumming for 10-20 minutes and gently allow yourself to receive whatever arrives to you in your consciousness.
*Thank whale for its spiritual medicinal offering.
*Remember your callback by opening your eyes and changing your drumbeat. A callback facilitates the transition back into this reality, or our material reality. A callback can also be in the form of a word or mantra that you prefer. My callback consists of 3 sets of 8 beats, then 3 sets of 3 beats and then 3 sets of 7 beats.
*Record your notes of whatever messages whale brought to you. These messages might be in the form of feelings, lyrics, sounds, visuals, etc. Let go and gently allow your soul to inform you as you travel along in your walking meditation.
For example, one message I received arrived in the form of a spirited heartfelt-telepathic exchange with Whale. The clear message I heard is that we are here to learn to balance cooperation and competition for mutual aid and live harmoniously with one another. We need to raise our vibrations to this sound frequency that resonates in our souls.
