Intuitive Healing Journeys through Meditation
It is important to learn the ability to go on an intuitive healing journey while meditating.
There are common issues people face in the form of fears that prevent or interfere with their true expression of self. An example I was recently giving advice about was the case of a person who had an irrational fear of driving, and she was wondering how she could overcome that fear, so I suggested a healing journey.
The first thing to do, is to put yourself into a situation where the fear is resonating within you. The aim of the healing journey is to intuitively locate the source of the fear and to try to resolve that issue. Resolution may not happen in a single journey as these journeys are gentle bouts of self-exploration and the cause of the issue is often uncovered little by little, just like peeling the skins of an onion. Also, a fear may have multiple causes, so stick with it and try to use intuition to know the right time to journey again. Have patience and be gentle with yourself.
Go to a quiet place where you will not be disturbed by any distractions. The whole concept of meditation is to focus clearly on the self-introspection journey.
In your quiet space, make yourself comfortable. The journey may last some time so sit or lie in a comfortable position so that you don’t feel physical discomfort during your journey. Note it is not important to adopt any special meditation position. I usually lie down for my meditations, the only danger is to fall asleep while meditating, but as long as you are not too tired to begin with you should be fine. Also note that it takes practice to get to the right relaxed state during meditation, so you may need to do this a few times in order to gain success.
Now that you are comfortable, allow yourself to relax. The aim with meditation is to try to get as relaxed as possible without falling asleep, and to empty your mind of any other thoughts, which at this point are only distractions.
Allow yourself to relax quietly for 5 to 10 minutes until you intuitively know it is the right time to begin your journey and then begin by asking yourself about the problem. Listen to your intuition and try to verbalise the response in your mind, as a way to establish a dialogue of self-exploration.
The path that this journey will take is up to you. Have no preconceptions as to how it will turn out, have a completely open mind and follow the journey that intuition sets out for you. Remember that these journeys take practice, but the more you do them the easier it becomes. Sometimes intuition will take you on a journey other than the one you were expecting. Do not dismiss that, the chances are that the journey is needed prior to venturing into the problem at hand.
A journey can be short or long, normally inexperienced people journey for shorter periods. Try to take note of every thought that you have. Sometimes even apparently distractive thoughts are important. The more you listen to self, the more successful you will be in your journeys.
