This video is one of my inner journeys, cliche I know, though the monk is one of the personas from an old hypnosis I used to listen to endlessly, he’s stuck around. The image of Buddha here is The Great Buddha of Kamakura, I was absolutely awe struck that day. The Temple of Buddha and the gate of the eternal is one sanctuary that I plan on revisiting as soon as I get the chance, I have a bronze replica of the statue that forms the centre piece of one of my rituals to keep me focused until that day arrives.
I’ve always been fascinated with meditation, diving in to the pools of my subconscious, leaving the trials of reality behind, so repetitive, so exhausting. Meditation allows us to leave the noise, the myriad distractions, slip away in to the silence.
You don’t need to be a blissed out yogi or a buddhist monk to find inner peace. You’ve probably experienced nirvana yourself, on a sun lounger listening to a favourite playlist When I properly started meditating this is how I saw myselfin my mind, a monk, I had the shaved head. I’m a proper Aries, if I’m doing something I’m going full on deep dive. Then I went off on a tangent, An Indian friend of mine said during that perid he felt like he was at his aunties flat. It was incense, Buddhas & Ganesh everywhere.
I was really lucky to sit with monks in Sri Lanka. They were great, you don’t have to be dull to be spiritual. I joined several meditation groups & classes, always chasing the ‘perfect’ mantra, instant karma.
Slowly I realised that my idea of meditation was quite limiting. I made friends with hypnotherapists who took me deeper on journeys to the edge of my subconscious. Shamanic journeying was next, one of my faves, I often dive through the vortex, see which spirit animals or teachers are waiting to escort me through the underworld.
Buddha regularly appears to people in a dream which often leads to an interest in chanting. That is why I have used the OM symbol as a focus. You can use any symbol as a focus in your mind, focus on the breathing, allow any sounds to send you deeper in to a fantastic daydream. Seeing Buddha in your dream, symbolises: wisdom, insight, compassion, and inner spirituality. When your mind is whirring, at your desk, on the tube, wherever the myriad distractions of daily life become a distraction, try repeating NAMYOHORENGEKYO or OMMANIPADMEHUM or both! In your mind, you might be amazed at the results.
Which Chakra needs your focus? The chakras are the spiritual energy superhighway network that connect all areas of our body & mind.. These psychic centres are like flowers originating from the stem of our spine. If we feel ‘out of sorts’ we can focus on our chakras to restore harmony & balance. – Which of your chakras is calling you?
My own personal meditation is often along the Royal Road of Tarot. A very good friend of mine created a hypnosis pathway for me that leads me in to each card.
I stepped back in to each of the cards I created all those years ago. I challenged what I really believed, the secrets I had already forgotten. I needed to revisit the keys.
Join me on a 2 minute Tarot adventure, each journey is loaded with symbols & meanings. These are not ‘readings’, they are designed to take you inside what each card means to me, unlock the meanings one card at a time..,
Meditation & hypnosis can allow you to go anywhere, do anything, be anybody.
When I recreated my Fortune Telling Machine I stepped back in my mind to a previous version of myself.
I brought him back through the Vortex, he is waiting with your Fortune. Which card does the machine have waiting for you?
