So instead of stealing someone else’s post i thought was prudent i create my own.
So last night was a struggle for me as my 3 year old decided he wanted to be up past midnight. So i went into meditation pretty exhausted. Last night on my own i decided i would toy around with one of Eva’s Posts about Shamanic Power Animals. For this instance of it i had no intentions of actually calling on my power animal. more just exploring the lower realm and acclimating myself.
So i started by using a technique i picked up from the Monroe institute for locking away all your worldly issues. It has you do that by imaging yourself removing this from you and putting it inside of a box that you then tightly lid. So i proceeded through that and went next to my tree and walked to the back to find its hole down into its root system for my decent into the lower real.
As i stood walked up close i saw a brown streak of color shoot out of the hole and around the tree. When i finally catch a glimpse its a tiny brown squirrel shoveling giant acorns into its cheeks. Prior to that i had been thinking about what would possibly be my spirit animal as i walk to the tree. So im not sure if maybe my intentions were enough to bring it forth or if this was my money brain becoming active
the little fella tagged along and before i knew it he was chilling on my head waiting for me to make my decent into the tree.
I reached out and grabbed the fist sized root dangling and began to climb down it. the root itself was moist and clammy feeling and had a very earthy smell to it. like when you turn over a log that has been decomposing in that spot for a year+. My hands almost slipped a couple times but i had to sink my fingertips into the roots to stop the slide. the climb wasn’t that long until my feet touched a floor i couldn’t see.
When i’m at the bottom of the climb i’m standing just below the end of the trees root system. they poked through the top of the cavern and hung down about a foot or so in most places. The area i was currently in was round and had what looked like a rock pushed over the entrance that could be used to block the enterance/exit It was far enough to the side for me to slide by with my back and stomach touching on both sides. Roots still dangled down and were dropping bits of water from their tips onto me leaving a chilling sensation. that got colder as the breeze coming from my front grazed the droplets on my skin.
as i’m pushing through these root they get thicker and longer to about as thick as a fingers width to a point that im not squeezing through the rock/dirt wall i’m just squeezing through roots. I also realize that i still have a Squirrel on my head treating me like i’m in Ratatouille. and i feel a couple pats on the top of my head from him urging me forward i thought. I came out to a large opening I was on a path that lead only forward to a Moat circling a tree with a bridge crossing the moat using the path im walking.
I could feel the temperature drop as i take ever step forward. It never really gets cold it just isn’t hot and by the time im near the tree it has dropped to a perfect like 70 degree. Im inside of a completely covered cavern but when standing under the tree and looking up i could see sunlight breaking through the branches pretty strongly. not to a blinding light but bright enough to make me squint.
I end up sitting down with my back against the tree and that’s how this session ends.
