Hanged / Drowned Man (Christed One)

Hanged / Drowned Man Christed One / Odin / Hanged (Drowned) Man Meditation by Jade M

Entering the shadow realm

You are walking along a beaten coastal pathway through dry grasslands next to a calm sea. The tide is gently encroaching and the movement of the waves catches your attention. The deep blues and greens of the ocean waves ride in and out pulling shells and pebbles back and forth in its wake.

The colours around you are so vibrant and radiant that you feel as if you have just awakened from within a technicolour dream. It is a cold but bright and sunny autumnal day and there is a chill in the breeze which caresses your face. It feels as if you have been walking on the path for a long time. There is a change in atmosphere and the passage of time and everything around you begins to slow down, almost like the Universe has gone on pause. Everything around you reaches a still point apart from the sensation of a pulse.

The world around you is still and nothing moves anymore. With each breath that you take you become more aware of rhythmic pulsations, fluctuations in the static as the air around you takes on a different quality. You can sense the breath of the earth and you are filled with the silence of the vast open space around you. You are attuning to the revolution of the Earth as it moves through space and you feel your presence on it. (Pause here)

You feel a deep connection with every living thing as your presence begins to rise above the waves and you float effortlessly up into the sky. The pulse that you were sensing begins to quicken as around you all springs back into motion once again. The wind has begun to pick up momentum and force as you hover above the sea.

Far away in the distance you hear the sound of two Ravens calling your name and the Tempest begins to stir within you as you transition, gathering your energies and moving between the known world into the underworld. All that is unknown to you currently will be revealed to you as you begin your adventure here.

The Ravens awaken within you a new sense of wonder and bring you a greater understanding of the function of Mind and Memory. You are in control of the flow of information that you receive now and allow your vision to come to you.

Ride the waves of the storm as they lift you from your current path and take you through the journey of all that you have experienced up until this point. You are being taken to a different level of awareness and perception now where you have much clarity and vision. Take a little time to get accustomed to this. (Long Pause here)

Bring back with you everything that you experienced as you begin your journey back to the waking world. Feel yourself coming back to the path beside the sea and returning to the place you started your journey. Become aware of your surroundings and after the count of three you are wide awake and in the room. 1,2,3.

When you are ready write down any symbols, experiences, words, thoughts or pictures that may have emerged during your experience. The images that rise from our dreamstate while we are conscious can be of great importance to us especially when we are in the process of finding our place and our calling in this life. Sadly at this stage in the Journey many turn back because they are not ready to go within and face their own demons.

Wheel of Fortune

wheel of fortune by JadeMWheel of Fortune and Fate

Breathe deeply and get yourself into a calm relaxed state of awareness before  you begin.

This is the tenth meditation journey in the Initiates Way Series. It is a good idea to have pen and paper / journal handy to record your experience. Light a candle and some incense and make sure the temperature is comfortable for you.

Please allow yourself fifteen minutes and make sure you will not be disturbed during. For the best results use headphones and sit in a straight backed chair so you will not be tempted to fall asleep.

Find yourself a comfortable space where you will not be disturbed for at least 20 minutes and have a pen and paper / journal to write in once you have finished.

Perhaps light some candles and incense before you begin to set the mood. Use the words below before you begin then listen to the recorded version on youtube below. A seated position is best so that you won’t be tempted to fall asleep.

Strength / Fortitude

This archetype suggests the duality of human nature and animal instincts. We see the face of the great goddess and a lioness merging together as one and underneath there is a symbol that keeps recurring for me which I have taken to represent the opening of a door / doors through which there is a flow of information and wisdom that can be switched on and off using that symbol.

I painted this strength / fortitude image during August 2017 at the same time as taking a priestess attunement with the Fellowship of Isis so for me this image will always represent the coming together with others collectively on a path. ©JadeMelany 2018

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 Paintings at the Carnegie in Workington

On the 9th of April Sacred Circle held their second annual Health, Healing and Awareness day at the Carnegie Theatre in Workington. There was a fabulous turnout of exhibitors for the day who brought with them not only fantastic wares but added to a collective energy that shone like a beacon for the entire day.

IMG_9492

This was the first time any of the Initiates Way Tarot paintings had left the safety of my Sanctuary and they are now re-installed back in their homes since. During the Inner Goddess workshop we visited the healing pool and Sacred Sanctuary of the High Priestess which was a joy to facilitate. The High Priestess and the Magician presided over the sacred space and everyone had a taste of the stillness and peace within their own Healing Sanctuary during the guided meditation.

There are only two more of the Guided Meditations for the Tarot that i’m currently writing, that of the Judgement / Aeon and the Universe / World, and upon their completion I will begin the editing and recording process for each of them with Meditation Music so that you can experience all of the Archetypes for yourself. This will be available as downloadable .mp3 format or as a full collection on CD as soon as they have gone through the production process. If you would like to be notified when this project is finished please get in touch and I will add you to the subscription list.

You can follow the progress of the Initiates Way on Instagram or the Esoteric Art Facebook page.

“The Shield” by Wendy Stokes

This new podcast is one of the guided meditations that we have used in our Spiritual development circle which was kindly passed to us by Wendy Stokes who is the author of the meditation.

The purpose of this podcast is for you to travel within and to meet your “Shield” or “Guardian Angel” so that you can work safe in the knowledge that you are being protected from entities that may be harmful to your development. Your “Shield” acts as a kind of doorkeeper.

When I did this meditation myself the image below is a representation of what I saw.

Shield

If you do this meditation please make sure that you have at least half an hour undisturbed and give yourself time to sketch afterwards. Please comment below and let me know how you get on with the meditation and if you have any suggestions.
