Build a Launching Pad for Your Inner work
An Inner World Exploration
Ninety-five percent of the world is unseen. If we want to go exploring, we have to build a strong launching pad. How do we do that?
Where are you going?
Because working in the inner world is unseen work, we can’t exactly make any plans. We must simply learn to open ourselves up to unexpected possibilities. We can develop techniques to take us on the inner exploration but where we go is, well, simply where we go. Our job is to stay open and learn as much as we can when we do journey to the unseen world.
First, we have to build our launching pad.
Deepen your roots for stability
Get a clear idea of your personal spiritual belief system. Look closely to see if you have developed your own spiritual belief system or if you are still caught up in what you were taught by someone else along the line that were really their beliefs, not ones you want to embrace. Question your beliefs. See what is a core belief for you today. Adjust your beliefs as you expand your consciousness.
I have a strong foundation in metaphysics upon which I have layered Taoism and more recently Shamanism. Each one of those conscious explorations has given me insights and tools for inner growth. I have adapted and selected what called to me, what I wanted and needed. I continue to select and adjust every day as my awareness of the unseen world expands.
Broaden your horizon by broadening your awareness
First, you have to believe there is an unseen world and then you have to believe you can get there.
Affirmative prayer was one of the first tools I used to have a conscious effect on life. Along with that was added a deep awareness of the power of my own words and thoughts.
I retrained myself to speak and think in positive phrases. It transformed my life.
The launching pad for work in the unseen word that I currently use is shamanic journeying. This is a form of meditation – visualizing, intuitive, receptive meditation. In my imagination, I create a Sacred Garden where everything is a metaphor that only I am to interpret.
Each element in the garden represents an aspect of me. I journey with a specific intention and interpret whatever metaphors shows up – a helping spirit, an object, an element – that is meant for only me to interpret. The unseen world speaks to me through my meditative openness.
The foundation I’m building includes an expanding use of sound healing, and deepening my Qi Gong practice so I can create a strong launch pad on the physical plane for these inner explorations.
What do you want to explore in the Unseen World?
Your mind can’t tell you what you want to explore because, well, the unseen world is invisible and the mind is simply your body suit mind, stuck in its humanness. What you can do is be willing to explore.
You may know what you want to learn or you may need to ask your helping spirits to guide you. I’m currently asking for guidance on how we, in our body suits, can raise our vibration to help lift the vibration of the physical plane planet. You know; a small project.
Listen to your inner guidance
Once I ask a question, the answers begin to appear. Show me. Guide me. How can I? Please make that metaphor clearer.
Trust what shows up. Trust that it’s the perfect message for you. Trust that you’re interpreting it in the most supportive manner. Journal what you discover in order to give yourself more clarity. I also draw a picture of the journey that helps me understand the message and serves as a reminder of what I learned.
I get an idea and go exploring in a journey and that gives me a response that – of course – raises more questions or offers a wider variety of solutions. So I choose one aspect and keep on going. I can also come back and explore another path.
How do you interpret what you learn in the invisible world?
That’s up to you and what’s calling you. I explore an idea that calls to me, figure out how to apply it and write my ideas in posts and my newsletter. Sometimes I compile my ideas in a short book. Sometimes I don’t have a complete answer, I simply have a new step to take which invites more questions.
Begin by exploring yourself
Begin with a simply meditative journey. Set an intention, close your eyes, listen to a shamanic drumming track if you like and see what shows up. Journal what you experienced and perhaps draw a picture.
Repeat as often as you like.
What’s your foundation? What’s your spiritual launching pad?
You’re already a launching pad for your inner world exploration. Know that. Deepen your intuitive foundation and take off.
