One hour version of the thirty minute one I did a few days ago, but it felt much, much longer. There were some similarities but quite a few differences.
Although I got into trance it took longer. Not sure if it’s because it was daytime, (not 1.30 a.m.) and I wasn’t on a high from completing a chapter.
I drifted in and out of trance, not stayed there throughout like last time.
I had three images. The first was of me walking around my kitchen getting a drink of orange squash (interesting because I don’t have orange squash in my kitchen).
The I saw an Alsatian dog pacing up and down at the bottom of my garden, he arrived and disappeared very quickly, but was clearly impatient.
Next I was out in a wood. People with drums surrounded me and started playing. (I wonder if I made this up because at that stage the drums were very insistent).
There were times when I felt my body moving involuntarily to the music, mainly my shoulders doing their own dance.
I reached states of high sexual arousal. Is this normal??????
Not much to say really, other than to note the appearance of another dog. I feel like I need more time to try and analyse what I’m being shown in these meditations.
If you have a spare minute and want to offer an explanation I’d be more than happy to receive it – gladly.

Would suggest looking up The Sacred Trust (sacredtrust.org/) for info plus a huge range of courses from weekends to three year courses held in London I think. Also, shamenswell.org has an article called How Sexual Energy Works In Your Lucid Dreams, not sure if this would be helpful to you or not…but sexual energy does appear to be a `side effect` of certain shemanic practises. xxx

As ever I’m astonished by your knowledge and the relevance of your suggestions to my journey. I’ve looked at both websites. I’m very interested in the course on soul retrieval that the Sacred Trust runs, but as it’s an advance course I have to do the introductory one first. I was going to secure my place on the June course when my computer got a virus and I thought it best not to do any transactions till it was made healthy again.
I read the article which made a lot of sense. A friend of mine gave me a book called Vagina by Naomi Wolf to read and give him my opinion. I’m only a little way into it, but already I see similarities between what the article on sexual energy and lucid dreams and Naomi says about the nature of sexual energy.
I have for some time recognised that sexuality and spirituality are inseparable, its religion that’s tried to make them so.

Did you book yourself on that course?
Orange = South, Protection, Healing, Arch Angel Michael. Alsatian is a big “Guard”dog, again Protection from South. What sort of Wood? Any Tree standing out? What feelings do you have about that tree? What does it say to you.
Sexual Energy, interesting. Sexual energy is also part of the Life force, your Kai, or Spirit, or Soul, what ever you call it. At what point did you notice your arousal? During the music, or during the visions. You could have been drawing Energy from elsewhere, or something else, maybe Spring, East Creativity. Air.

Interestingly I’ve been trying to book but without success. The booking page on their website is down. I called and left a message asking them to ring me back but no one has yet. I’ll keep trying, but if I get no response will accept that I’m not meant to go on this one.
I have, however, booked to go on a constellation course at the end of June which works a lot with healing soul trauma across generations, and also with soul retrieval. Do you know of constellations?
I’ve had lots of messages about being protected, and knew part of dog wisdom is protection. I didn’t know that orange was also protection. I don’t remember any particular trees.
The arousal happened during the drumming. Thinking about it now, it was probably the beat of the drums. I have a deep connection with drums. One of my sons is a drummer, and I bought a djembe some years ago but have never really learned to play it.

Constellations, the only ones I know are due to a little study of the Stars, Orion, Plough, Ursa Major et al. Pray tell.
Orange is from the South Direction, Fire, Summer, and Protection. While not as hard as red, mixing a little yellow into the mix, (which is also South). It is a strong colour for you at this time of your Journey, you can travel knowing that you are being Protected. While some dogs are noisy rather than Guard, the Station is one step away from the Wolf in looks, just more friendly towards people. A few Shaman have Wolf as their Power Animal, a great protecting animal. But it is what the Dog brings to you, how it makes you feel. And Orange as well. When you think of Orange what do you feel?

Bugger, posted when I had not finished, prat.
Right the drumming, shame about the trees but they are not important right now for you. Can you remember the drumming? the beat and tempo. Have you been a drummer? Beat, also creative, Air again. It must have tapped into your Kai, hitting the right spot, so to speak. if you can copy the drumming and then gently alter the beat and tempo, speed it up or down by a little, add another note within the Melody and see how that makes you feel. It may take to to other places, and connect with others from the Spirit realms, either you distant Ancestors, or the Fey from these Islands, Or Somewhere else even. Experiment with the drumming.

Much food for thought here Dave. Let me start with your first question about constellations. I”ve copied a chunk from Wikipedia which explains very well what it is. I’ve taken part in several constellations and it’s my intention to write these up as a separate section of this blog, as people have expressed an interest.
Family Constellations (a subset application of Systemic Constellations) is an experiential process that aims to release and resolve profound tensions within and between people. Bert Hellinger, the German philosopher-psychologist is considered the founder of Family Constellations in their modern form.
The process diverges from conventional forms of cognitive, behaviour and psychodynamic psychotherapy in several key respects. In a single session, a Family Constellation attempts to reveal a previously unrecognized systemic dynamic that spans multiple generations in a given family and to resolve the deleterious effects of that dynamic by encouraging the subject to accept the factual reality of the past.
Practitioners claim that present-day problems and difficulties may be influenced by traumas suffered in previous generations of the family, even if those affected now are unaware of the original event in the past. A theoretical foundation for this concept is called The Ancestor Syndrome in psychology. Recent findings in epigenetics research supports the concept that after-effects of trauma can be passed to subsequent generations. Hellinger referred to the relation between present and past problems that are not caused by direct personal experience as Systemic entanglements, said to occur when unresolved trauma has afflicted a family through an event such as murder, suicide, death of a mother in childbirth, early death of a parent or sibling, war, natural disaster, emigration, or abuse. The psychiatrist Iván Böszörményi-Nagy referred to this phenomenon as Invisible Loyalties.
Back to orange. I’m not at all keen on orange, I almost never wear it as a colour, and will only do so deliberately if I feel my sacral chakra needs balancing. I find it very jarring, even subtle tones of it. I’ll do a bit more thinking around this.
The drumming was on youtube, so what I could do is try other recordings. I’m planning to go to a live event, so may get something different again then. It’s just very different meditation to drums and rattles after being used to soft soothing music.
I’ve just had a thought. I’m a belly dancer and a lot of belly dance music has strong insistent drumming, and it is a very sensual dance. Could be a link here.

I understand now, got you. Because Gran ma was murdered I have a feeling of loss. That may explain a lot of things within Families.
The Belly Dancing link could be right, you have attuned your mind and body to the beat of the drum for that purpose, so a strong beat would pick up that vibration in you. Good idea about other recording, or have a look in a New Age shop, some have cd’s for sale, you never know what you will find in one.
If Orange hits you like that then forget what I said, leave it be, you are not ready for that, it’s vibration is very wrong for you, at a later date you may feel a pull but until then, leave be.

Grandma murdered? Interesting!! May ask about this at next constellation event.
Been doing some thinking around the orange, and also spoke to a friend who’s a colour specialist. She says it has to do with abuse and/or self-esteem issues. I’ve experienced the former, and am currently doing a lot of work around self-esteem (though most people laugh when I mention I’m working on self-esteem issues). I don’t mean I have low self-esteem, just that there is a particular area of my life that still needs attention. The part that relates to total unconditional self love.
I’ve been almost manic with clutter clearing the last couple of weeks, and the sacral chakra is apparently to do with release, with letting go.
Don’t know if your read the meditation about woodlands and fairies, but my resistance bully was orange. Maybe when I’ve done a bit more letting go I will find orange a little more tolerable.

Yep, I read the Fairy reading, with the Fanta Bubble Bully. It is strange that quite a few of us on here that I have spoken with have self esteem issues, usually from one form of abuse or another. Maybe it is just me but I do not find working on this funny, but that maybe because I have myself, long time ago.
To find total balance in your life, you need to at least accept how and what you are, warts and all, from accepting to liking is but a small step. Who I did it was to write everything down, good and bad, unlocking every door within your mind, bring the light of reason to everything. No – one else need to know, this is just for you, and you alone.
Once read though leave it a few days or a week and then go back and re-read it. Keep doing it leaving maybe a month between each reading and one day you will find that this does not bother you as much as you thought it did. This happened to me, it was beyond my control at that time, but I am not the same person I was then, I am stronger/wiser/more controlled. You will have changed since that time, mark that down as well
Accept, Like, Love, in that order. Somethings are always going to be beyond us, but that is not weakness, it is acceptance.
