Backtracking…So far, I’ve just been doing vision work. I haven’t progressed to Astral Travel or Evocation at this point. Kind of low level for now, but hopefully it gets better over time.
I had been doing The Void Meditation posted by Adam-Thoth and hearing tones in my left ear. Got slight impressions of symbols, red silk billowing, blood in running water, and reptile scales. After some time, that stopped occuring in The Void meditations. The tones continued, but the impressions ceased, to be replaced by swirling light blue in the darkness. Throat chakra energy?
Around the same time, I learned from a primer that The Void can be used as a gateway to many different places and activities through intent, so I started doing vision work. I did a Tin Hinan vision exercise created by Josephine McCarthy. The Tin Hinan figure was not meant to talk to you in the vision J.M. devised, but she did in mine. She sat up on her funeral bed after I placed an offering of what appeared to be a paper or Reed hoop globe. She was red all over her skin, and I asked her why. She told me that it was because in her time, the Dead were painted in red ochre. (I researched it later, and it is a fact that prehistoric cultures all over the world did paint their dead in red ochre. I don’t believe I had any knowledge of that beforehand). I messed up and asked Tin Hinan how I could know that this was a success and not foolishness on my part. She spoke authoritatively then, almost angry. I caught something that sounded like “Daum…” and the rest was unintelligible. Then she laid back down and it was over.
Some days later, I made her a physical version of the hoop globe and floated them down the river to her.
Another vision work I did involved me trying to navigate from The Void with intent. I wanted to go to my childhood home and see the property with Inner Sight. When I got there, I felt almost stuck at a pink dogwood tree at the driveway, wanting to hug it and stay there, but I had to pull myself away.
I went into the house at one point and met a shadow that made me uncomfortable. I imagined myself carrying salt and vervain, so when it approached me quickly, I threw that at it. It made holes like melted film, and made it back off but didn’t destroy it. Then I stayed outside. We are renovating that house now and will be moving back in before 2019. Looks like there is work to do when we get there with that shadow. I saw it outside too, but it couldn’t come out from the shadow of the house.
In a field in the property I asked to meet a spirit of the land, and a muscular stag-headed man with beaded stones tied together as armor over it’s chest and forearms. It had a beautiful antler rack as well. It didn’t speak. I asked if I could touch it. It allowed it and even let me press my forehead against it’s nose since it felt like the right thing to do. I did research later and wondered if that wasn’t an equivalent of Awi Usdi of The Tsalagi/Cherokee People. The Little Deer that curses hunters who show no respect for their kill or kill only for sport. Awi Usdi cripples them with rheumatism.
I let myself explore without direction, and found myself falling through red clouds all the way down to a ink black island underneath red storm clouds. The mountains on it dripped upwards like liquid against gravity.
I later wanted to know how people on this forum were able to see their own chakras and how they were doing. They informed me that you can remote view them. So in I went to try to do it using The Void and intent. And I think I saw them and those of my husband. I won’t say how they looked so that if I ever ask for a second-party scan for confirmation, they won’t have my own observations coloring theirs.
