Being dedicated to myself, I started speaking of the change I was seeking, using words that supported my goal. Positive affirmations are a good way to support and direct growth and healing in our life. After all most of our problems come out of the bad programming that runs on repeat inside of our heads; spewing out negative bullshit that wastes the potential of our minds. Just imagine what life could look like if we spoke as many encouraging words to ourselves…
I walked away from obvious negative internal banter along time ago, but that does not mean my brain is always kind to me. While I don’t bad-talk myself in the way that many people do, I run a to-do list that has the potential of being never-ending. So I still have need of positive affirmations, mantras, and intentional thoughts. This was how I spent the weeks between my travels, reinforcing the new setting I had chosen to live my life in; the one with purposeful movement and lots of Catnaps.
The trouble was I still could not see the direction I wanted to go in, the prey I wanted to stalk or the perhaps a better way of putting it was I had not yet received the scent of that which I sought. I was pretty sure I would find it while on Sacred journey and I was anticipating the insight it would lend to me.
Visionary art; such as Alex & Allison Grey’s, is meant to trigger the subconscious, allowing us to step out of our analytical mind and into the deeper vastness of our souls knowing. Spending time submerged in such art often works on the receiver long after they have walked away from the physical display.
My fellow Wyrd Travelers and I went to COSM with this in mind, we were looking for the full experience as well as a place we could step into our shared spiritual work without disturbance. We received both, as the universe provided us with the opportunity to be the only guest staying @ Grey House (the Inn at COSM) for the duration of our visit.
In visiting the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors my personal goal was to receive with an open mind, allowing messages of direction to come to me, instead of my normal steady push for deep waters. After all, I was working with Big Cat/Panther; I was not searching under every rock for my knowledge, instead, I was waiting around stealthily for it to appear. Most of my time there was taken up with group work, primarily focused on helping others wake-up peacefully, in this time of Psychic Evolution. My individual work was more subtle…it involved meditating in the temple room in the early hours of the morning, and absorbing the energy of the place while I slept…where it infiltrated my dreams and seeped into my knowing. I don’t recall a single ‘Ah-ha’ moment of self-awareness, yet I left understanding my future path more clearly and have continued to unfold subconscious wisdom in my dreams; both waking and sleeping.
I have used Sacred Travel as a vehicle for transformation for many years now. There is something about stepping away from our mundane world, that allows us to look at our life differently. I know I am fortunate enough to do so regularly, and for that I am thankful. But this has not always been the case, I have not always had the luxury of time and money to make such things happen.
So…how do we submerse ourselves in Sacred Pilgrimage when we do not have the luxury of leaving our home, family & obligations?
I will be talking about just that in part 3 of this Sacred Travel log, which will be out on Friday, April 5th. Thanks for following along on my adventures…
