Meeting the Heroic Self Guided Meditation

We begin as always by creating protection.

Firstly call down a pyramid of white light to cover you. A ray of pure white light enters the top of the pyramid and as you inhale it enters the crown chakra; (pause) through the third eye and throat chakras and into the heart.

Next imagine that pyramid inverting and stretching deep in to the orange and golden fires of Mother Earth. As you exhale this golden light is drawn in through the chakras of your feet up, up through the other chakras mingling with the white light of spirit in the heart chakra. Once it fills you, it begins to spill out filling the pyramid keeping you safe as you prepare to venture into the spirit realms.

Ask now for the Blue Ray of St Michael to envelop this protective capsule and for St Michael to send guardians to the entrances.

The second aspect of protection is the forming of clear intent for the journey. The setting of a powerful and passionate intent draws spirit help to you. If we were to enter the spirit world without a strong focus we may draw to us entities of a less helpful nature. (These may come to us possibly following the lead of a negative thought pattern while in the journey.) Optional.

The intention of this meditation is to journey to your sacred space the home of your hero or heroine in spirit. The Heroic Self is one of the aspects of your soul and is a representation of your willingness to embrace a relationship with your divine self. How willing are you to step away from appears to be your normal world? Are you able to look beyond today and imagine something different for the future. Do you trust in your dreams, can you see them realistically, find the courage, the discipline, learn new skills, cultivate compassion and generosity, be driven yet humble and accepting, be passionate and committed, and sense you individual calling within all of that.

At this meeting with the Heroic Self you will receive a gift or be given a task that is symbolic for the preparation of your Hero’s Journey.  To do this you affirm your intention three times powerfully and imagine sending it before you like an arrow into the Spirit Realm. Or imagine it as energy emanating from your heart powerfully. Know now that this guide or spirit helper may have a human form or may take the form of an animal. Say silently to yourself after me. And imagine sending it powerfully ahead of you.

My intention is to journey to the Home of my Heroic Self, meet this spirit helper and be given a gift or task that will assist me on my Hero’s Journey.

I’m now going  to ask you now to take a command breath. This is a deep and powerful breath. Allow it to fill you from the diaphragm to the lungs. Hold the breath. Keep bringing it up. Hold it. Hold it. Then let it go letting it burst from your body.

In a moment I’ll ask you to take another command breath. This time I’d like you to tighten the muscles in your body from your toes to your head. (Pause) Ok. Take that deep and powerful breath. Bring it up. Bring it up. Hold it. Hold it. Tighten those muscles, all over, about mid strength. Hold it. Hold it. Release it. Let go of everything and imagine your heaviness sinking into the earth grounding you. (Pause) To demonstrate the power of your spirit self, now imagine your body becoming lighter. See yourself levitating a few inches off the ground.

Next I’ll ask you to take a breath to heart. This breath is inhaled deeply and gently. Then connect and focus on any distractedness, any tension, and any distress as you breathe in. Again you will continue to hold it and then let it go gently releasing it to your heart along with those distractions.

Ok. Take that deep, yet gentle breath. Bring it up, centre it in your heart, and collect those distractions. Bring it up. (Pause) Now release it gently but smoothly, letting the distractions go as well…….

Next you will do another breath to heart. Now take that deep and gentle breath. Bring it up. Collect any last remaining tension. Bring it up. (Pause) Again release it gently to the heart. Take a moment to notice the peace.

Imagine yourself on a trail anywhere or of anything you choose. It could be the yellow brick road, a trail through the forest. It may be a favourite place. If you can connect with a joyful feeling around it, it is perfect. Let the joyfulness expand into your actions. Allow yourself to move in joy, however that is evoked for you. Imagine yourself expressing that joy vocally in the silence of the meditation in whatever way is comfortable for you. The spirit of joy attracts beneficial outcomes to you.

Ahead of you see a crystal sphere rising from in front of you thousands of feet into the air. The dodecahedron creates the loving, sacred, safe space required for this work. As you get closer you notice a beautiful castle enclosed. As you reach the dodecahedron a portal opens allowing you access. You cross a bridge and go through the castle gates.

Ahead of you, you see a landing. A set of steps goes down to your right. Go to the top of the steps. Again take a moment to envision how you want the steps to be. Then take a couple of steps down. Reach down and take a moment to experience the texture of the steps. You see a doorway at the bottom of the steps. Make your way slowly down the rest of the steps. You walk through the door into an elaborate foyer. Take some time to acquaint yourself with this area. Notice anything that seems relevant. (Pause) 1 min

On the other side of the foyer is a door. As you walk toward it, it opens. This is the home of your Heroic Self. You see your guide for the first time. Your inner Heroic Self assists you in the preparation and initiation of you Hero’s Journey. Don’t be surprised if he or she appears in non-human form. Ask his or her name. They are there to serve your highest good. Pay attention to things that seem relevant as you walk and look  around the room. You will be drawn to items relevant to your journey. You may be invited to look more closely at something, or to listen to, or to touch a particular item. Honour these invitations. This is .  (Pause) 1 minute

A fire is burning in the Hearth. Two seats are arranged in front of a fire. Your Guide directs you to one of them and takes the other himself. You take your seat and turn towards him. Be aware of any questions that come into your mind and direct these to this Mystical entity. He gets up and reaches into the fire. Do not be alarmed. From the fire he retrieves a gift for you. Take some time to connect with this and take it into your heart. Reach out with other awareness if there seems to be nothing visible. Your consciousness around the gift may be picked up through sensation or through listening. It may be that you are being invited to experience something new in your life.

Find out the relevance of what is presented before you. Again be aware of any questions that come into your consciousness and direct these to your guide. I’ll leave you 10 minutes for this. If you feel the answers you require are complete remain in contemplation of the image you received, again holding it in your heart. At the sound of my voice begin to finish if you have any further questions. If you have no further questions humbly thank your guide three times for being present in your life at this time. (Pause) 10 min

Begin to finish now, thanking your guide humbly three times as you complete.

(Pause) 1 min

Gracefully depart the room, then the foyer. Come back up the stairs and leave the castle. Come back into your body, and when you’re ready open your eyes.
