It was suggested that I visualize a favorite physical place. Perhaps a place with a tree which had an interesting feature or maybe in stead a depression, cave or even body of water.
The expert said that this would allow me go easily transition. To either the upper or lower world. After all I have travelled a far amount of the middle world so I should be able to find a place that would let me travel to the other worlds.
The man went on to explain that the lower world is not the same as the Christian idea of hell and there are many helpers found in the lower world as well as the upper world. The idea is to go where the helpers are as they will provide what is required, especially if the person doesn’t even know something is required. The idea is that the unversed knows what needs to be held or let go at any given time and the human requires these helpers to find balance.
Since I was game to see how this would play out, I went ahead and gave it a go. I visualized a favorite place of mine, on near the water, with a fantastic arch way leading down to the water. I got to where I could almost feel the sun in my face, the breeze in my hair and smell the salt on the wind. Almost. Because I couldn’t get comfortable enough to ignore my body entirely.
After trying this and not getting beyond in over a period of time, the expert suggested that we stop for the day. We could try again in a few days when my mind and body settled into this idea if journeying.
While not very good at any of this, I must confess there is something relaxing in the orate of taking yourself elsewhere. Once you get past how it doesn’t come easy that is.
