Magician Meditation

Magician Meditation for the Initiates Way

I call to the Guardians of the East, South, West and North to attend our (my) circle should it please them. I (We) am (are) here of my (our) own free will to work with Spirit in all of its forms, to honour the Goddess and God within and without. Spirit Guides, Ancestors, Elders, Helpers, Teachers, Angels and those who work with the light please join us (me) in this evening (moment) so that we can work together to strengthen the connection to the otherworld while we work in our Sacred Space.

You can speak aloud the text above or say it in in your mind before you begin.

Close your eyes and begin to count your breathing. Remember to breathe in to the count of four and breathe out to the count of four. Push out your abdomen as you breathe in. This may sound difficult at first but your body will remember that this is the correct way to breathe. When you breathe out allow your abdomen to fall. Breathe in, 2 3 4 breathe out 2 3 4. Breathe in 2 3 4 and breathe out 2 3 4. (repeat slowly as long as is necessary so that you get the rhythm of the breathing and begin to relax)

Every time you breathe you feel more and more relaxed. I want you to begin your visualisation by creating a spinning ball of light just above the crown of your head. Imagine a light spinning and pulsating and growing from a tiny spark into a ball about the size of a watermelon. Spend a few moments imagining this ball of light until you can see it clearly in your mind.

When all of your energy and attention is focussed upon this ball of light begin to bring it down through the top of your head and into your forehead. You feel any stress or anxiety dissolving as this ball of spinning light clears negativity and cleanses your thoughts. enjoy this clarity of thought before moving on. Now bring the ball of spinning light down into your throat. You feel this clear light taking away any communication difficulties that you might have, allowing your confidence to grow and feel content that you can at any time, speak your truth.

Enjoy this feeling of openness and comfort in the knowledge that you are ready to speak from within. Pause and reflect upon how you communicate with others . Are there times when you wish you could be more vocal about your true feelings and desires? Know that you can speak with confidence and be yourself.

Bring your attention back once more to the spinning ball of white light as it begins to move from your throat down to your heart. Feel yourself going within your heart with this ball of energy. This is the real you. The ball of light begins to grow bigger and bigger until it envelopes your whole body and a shaft of light emits from your heart down into the centre of the earth connecting you with the core of our planet. You feel alive and radiant within your power. See yourself extending your arms outwards and projecting this energy which is you out through your hands.

You are the creative spirit and this is your energy and willpower. You have energy in abundance. Allow it to flow freely and unrestricted.

Spend a little time recharging your body with this newfound vitality before returning and recording your experiences.

After you have finished your meditation is it a good idea to have a drink and something to eat to make sure that you are grounded.

Initiates Way

The Initiates Way and Meditation

By taking time to get to know each part of this journey intimately and experience it for ones self directly we need to be taken out of our comfort zone of what we think we know as we are awakened from within to a world of new experiences that bring change in to our lives. Meditating with each of these images is not something that can be done quickly and will require time, effort and diligence on the part of the seeker and the act of meditating properly is a skill like any other which doesn’t happen overnight but with persistence and determination it is an invaluable tool that will yield phenomenal results if applied consistently and effectively.

I learned to use the fourfold method of breathing very early on in my studies and it has been the best way of quieting the mind of distractions. Focus on your breathing and breathe in to the count of four, then breathe out to the count of four. Bringing your attention and awareness into your body and let the distractions of the outside world fade in to the background. Take a few minutes to do this. You can use music or relax into the peace and quiet. Either way the focus is upon regulating your breathing by counting. In 2,3,4 and our 2,3,4.

This is the guided Meditation for the Fool. The beginning of your journey into enlightenment. Make sure that you will not be disturbed for at least half an hour and you should have a pen and paper ready to record your experience. Before you begin adjust the lighting, light a candle perhaps, and make sure the temperature in the room is warm enough, and if you need a blanket have this to hand. Its a good idea to have a glass of water ready too for when you have finished.

The Path

Initiates Way

cropped-img_8231.jpgFor a long time I knew that the path I was walking was a different one even though I didn’t understand or know why, but just knew that I had to follow it. Tried unsuccessfully to fit so many moulds that were presented to me but couldn’t. Time has proven to me that we all have our unique way of being and that try as we might we cannot escape from the true nature of ourselves.

The Initiates Way began initially in 2006 when I created a set of images to help me understand the Tarot on a personal level and discover what it meant to me. Dipping the toe into the sea of Magical images not knowing where it was going to carry me. I was at the beginning of a very long journey and I had no idea where I would end up. Using the Tarot as a tool for Spiritual Development since then has been priceless in terms of helping me find my place in the world. Without it I would never have begun the exploration of the inner worlds and initiated experiences in my life that have given me a foundation upon which to live and breath. Part of the journey has been to fully embrace the Goddess in all of her glory and celebrate the divine feminine and masculine equally within my spiritual practices.

Creation of the Soulscapes Tarot was the first part of that journey. Using the ideas and concepts of each of the Major Arcana of the Tarot to produce my own spiritual enlightenment journey in pictures, while living it in the physical world. The Initiates Way is the path that I have chosen to walk and last year in January I started to paint another set of images at the outset of another rite of passage beginning with The High Priestess who came to me in a dreamlike vision and told me that I would ‘serve’ at her High Altar. During the creation of the images for the Initiates Way I wrote, participated in and led workshops road testing 22 Meditations that were created with the intent of taking the practitioner of Tarot into uncharted spaces so that they could experience these worlds for themselves.

As we enter into February 2018 the Initiates Way has taken on a life of its own and the remaining images have been coming to fruition when they are ready to be birthed. The completion of the set of images and producing the second deck will be the pinnacle of this awesome journey. The foundations are laid now for anyone who would like to test the water and see if they are ready to facilitate their own seeking for enlightenment and wisdom.

The Guided meditations will be available on Youtube and on the Blogpage.
