I’m learning more and more about how important it is to have some form of meditating in my life. Having a meditation practice facilitates both physical and mental health. I also believe that It provides an opening for more creativity and the manifesting of dreams and desires.
I have written in several previous posts about shamanic journeying. Guided by a talented shamanic practitioner such as Joyce St. Germaine, I can reach a very deep level of soul contact. There is no destination in a shamanic journey. At some point, my mind isn’t in charge anymore. I’m not thinking up the experience. It isn’t my imagination and I’m not day dreaming. It is not directly from me but I’m not separate from it.
Into the gap
I am currently reading Getting in the Gap by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. I read one of his books in the 90’s but it didn’t really resonate with me. At the time I was looking for a more visceral spiritual experience. I am older now and in a more yin phase of life. The longer, slower approach to mediating and spirituality feels like a good fit for me. I’m sure I will be sharing more about my “gap” experiences in future posts.
