WELCOME TO THE WONDERFUL WEDNESDAYS DIGITAL DREAM TEAM!
This page will be available for 24hrs after the end of the meetup event (i.e until Thurs 26th November at 9.30pm)
You can skip the advice re. glitches and the basic journeying tips if you're already familiar with the online group and journeying in general but ideally read the rest of this page from 'TRUTH TALK AND BEAUTIFUL BOUNDARIES!' to the bottom, between 6.30pm and 7pm, or at least before you start any journeying, so that you have an overview of what's happening and can prepare/decide what order to do everything, without trying to read it all for the first time once you're spaced out from the journeying!
Clickhere for tips and fixes for potential glitches with the meetup.com page and basic tips for unguided shamanic journeying, if you're new to it or need a reminder:
TRUTH TALK AND BEAUTIFUL BOUNDARIES!
Hello digital dreamers!
Two guided journeys this week! One is the classic true self journey, but after merging with your true self there is an additional section added where you'll be inviting in the true self of someone with whom you just can't have a peaceful conversation in physical reality. This could be someone you have current issue with or it could be a relationship or connection from your past that still feels in need of 'closure'. To give you an example, I once did a session with a person who used this journey to have a closure ceremony with the true self of a cheating ex as there had been no chance of explanation or goodbye at the time of the shocking revelation or at any point after that. It could be someone who's still in your life but who, for whatever reason, you just can't talk to about the issue between you. It could be anyone really. The most important thing to remember is that you are not having this conversation or 'acknowledgment of peace' as the egoic 'human you' and the egoic 'human them', so there is no manipulation or intruding involved (never try to influence someone else in a journey as it can have a harmful boomerang effect on the meddler!). This is a meeting between your true self and their true self, both of whom are pure divine love and have no issue with the other or with anyone. You'll be asking the other person's true self to appear as a light rather than looking like the person, to assist you in staying merged as your true self instead of being potentially triggered back into ego!
The second journey is one that some of you might recognise - it's my own adaptation of a chapter from a book I've had for many years called 'your aura and your chakras' by Karla McLaren. You'll choose someone who is currently irritating, annoying or feels intrusive to you in some way (could be in small ways or more harmful). You'll then be guided through a process of creating a strong, clear (yet compassionate) boundary between you and them, as well as cleansing and clearing your own aura. I did the book version for the first time many years ago when I worked in an office. A colleague had suddenly started bugging the life out of me, bossing me around (even though they weren't my boss) and constantly asking me to do ridiculous tasks, standing too close to my desk all the time, literally intruding in my space all day long. It was weird as they'd never done this before. After I did this meditation, they never bothered me again, were nice as pie and always treated me with massive respect - it literally happened overnight - I couldn't believe it! For whatever reason the person must've needed my attention or to feel like I was doing something for them... the plant seemed to do the trick anyway :-)
For info: It can (and probably should) be a different person you focus on for each journey.
There are 3 card readings to choose from this week. So you can pick one or check them all to see what resonates with you.
So, try to complete the journeys, check out the cards and watch the video clips at some point between 7pm and 8.30pm (but don't worry if you need to spread it out over tonight and tomorrow). I'll be journeying along with you for group insights and holding space during that time. Then, remember you can share your experience and/or read what I (and others) share if you want to, in the comments section of the meetup event page between 8.30pm and 9pm. I'll hang about there until later than that if needed. Here's a wee handy button to take you back to the meetup.com event page. Scroll down on that page to view and leave comments. You can also send me a private text or message if you prefer.
Pick reading 1, 2, 3 (or all!). These readings (around 6-10 mins each) are intended for everyone who attends this week, so different storylines and threads may apply to each of you. Take the parts that resonate with you and ignore what doesn't. Click on the audio below to hear the reading and you'll work out which set of card images matches your choice:
For those of you who still have energy for an unguided journey you could use this as question to ask your power animal/guide:
'Help me to see a habit of mine that weakens my boundaries and show me what I can do instead'
Remember the page will be open until Thursday night at 9.30pm and the drumming track below is on YouTube anyway so you can always do the unguided journey later if you don't have time. (For info: Click here to subscribe to the chakrafit youtube channel then you'll always have the link handy and get notified when new videos are posted. You can sign in with a google account to subscribe/like/comment/share if you don't have a youtube account)
You can use your own drum, rattle etc for the unguided journey or click the button below for the 30 min drumming track to assist you (which also has basic on-screen instructions at the start, to help you focus if you need it).
MY WED NIGHT JOURNEY ON BEHALF OF THE GROUP: THIS TIME THE JOURNEY SETTING WAS AS THOUGH WE WERE HAVING AN IN-PERSON GROUP WEDNESDAY AT MINE, EXCEPT WE HAD A GUEST - A NATIVE AMERICAN MEDICINE MAN. THERE WAS A SORT OF STRESSED OUT/ANXIOUS FEELING IN THE AIR AS THE CEREMONY BEGAN. HE WENT ROUND ALL OF US INDIVIDUALLY WAFTING SWEETGRASS OVER EACH PERSON, STARING, NODDING AND SAYING THE SAME THING EACH TIME 'STEER CLEAR AND YOU'LL STEER CLEAR'. AS HE DID THIS, HEAVY SHADOWS WERE CLEARING OUT OF OUR ENERGY FIELDS AND GOING INTO A DRAWSTRING POUCH THAT HE WAS CARRYING. I ASKED HIM WHAT THIS MEANT TO MAKE SURE WE GOT THE RIGHT MESSAGE AND HE SAID THAT WE NEED TO STEER CLEAR OF LOW VIBRATION PEOPLE, SITUATIONS, ACTIONS ETC AT THE MOMENT AS IT'S A VULNERABLE TIME FOR EVERYONE. IF WE CAN KEEP DIRECTING AND RE-DIRECTING OURSELVES TOWARDS HIGH VIBES AND THINGS THAT MAKE US FEEL SAFE AND HAPPY, THEN IT WILL HELP US STAY ON TRACK. STEERING CLEAR AS WE MOVE ALONG OUR INDIVIDUAL AND COLLECTIVE PATHS. WE THANKED HIM WITH SOME TOBACCO AND HE LEFT. WE ALL INSTANTLY GOT THE GIGGLES AND RANDOMLY WE STARTED SINGING, WAIT FOR IT....'I THINK WE'RE ALONE NOW' BY TIFFANY?? DOES ANYONE REMEMBER THAT SONG? I HAVEN'T THOUGHT ABOUT IT FOR YEARS AND YEARS. I'VE FOUND THE VIDEO AND EMBEDDED IT BELOW. i WATCHED IT AND REALISED THAT THE LYRICS 'THE BEATING OF OUR HEARTS IS THE ONLY SOUND' IS ACTUALLY QUITE APT FOR US TRYING TO KEEP SEEING WITH OUR HEARTS DURING STRANGE TIMES AND I GUESS THE FACT THAT THE CHARACTERS IN THE SONG ARE RUNNING AWAY FROM 'THEM' COULD REPRESENT US ALL 'STEERING CLEAR' OF NAYSAYERS AND NEGATIVE VIBES. FUNNY THAT SHE'S IN A CROWDED SHOPPING CENTRE IN THE VIDEO TOO, CONSIDERING THE SHOPS ARE SHUT JUST NOW. A GOOD IMAGE TO FOCUS ON FOR THE FUTURE - GATHERING SAFELY IN BIG JOYFUL CROWDS! JEEZO, CAN'T BELIEVE HOW YOUNG SHE LOOKS - AT LEAST IN THE 80S THEY LET TEENAGE POPSTARS JUST WEAR JUMPERS AND JEANS. THIS WAS RECORDED IN 1987 AND IN THE VIDEO COMMENTS SECTION SOMEONE SAID IT ONLY COST $60 TO MAKE!
When we have to let go of people or unhealthy patterns or familiar-but-uncomfortable old versions of ourselves, or the need to be right, or whatever it is... we can let go or say goodbye or walk away with sweetness, even when it's bitter-sweet, knowing that we are never really walking away but rather walking (rocking?rolling?) towards our own heart, our own dreams, our freedom to live beautifully as our true self in each moment of this precious life! Even when life feels unkind and we feel like the ones being left or abandoned, it can still often turn out to be a blessing in disguise in the end... Wishing you lots of love, peace and beautiful boundaries! Thanks so much for connecting! Ruthy xxx P.S The digital chakra course is almost ready (it costs £80 and people who've paid their deposit for the chakrafit in the city course can have the option of transferring it to that if they want to. On the 14TH DECEMBER a new chakra meditation will be published to YouTube to give everyone a free start to the course. Then the first part of the Root chakra section of the course will be made available on 21st December for people who sign up to the course. More details coming very soon) x
