Beyond the Journey -
In our ordinary reality, we affirm and invite into our path those people that are going to support us in our growth, nourish our souls, and provide loving energy. We tend to be acutely aware of those who do not support us, nourish us, or do not provide loving energy. This innate awareness transcends into the journey as well. In creating sacred space to journey we are inviting with invitation only those guides and allies that support our expansion. Just as in ordinary reality there are not all loving souls for our highest good, the same is true of the other realms.
Be sure to set your intention purposefully.
As you become more aware to the guidance and wisdom shared in journey's, you will find that the same guides and allies appear in the ordinary reality in physical forms that you can identify with. Animal allies are most prevalent in first noticing the appearance. Watch the symbols, the pictures, the scents, the sounds in you ordinary reality. It may surprise you to see how the manifestation of the journey becomes part of your ordinary reality.
Watch for the manifestation of messages.
It was recommend to me that I journey once a week in order to build a consistent relationship with my guides and allies in the beginning.
After each journey, write in your journal all that you remember regardless of how insignificant it may seem. This will help develop your understanding of the spiritual vibrational language.
Specific types of journeys
Journeying is specifically to engage and expand an innate relationship with the sacred energies of the spiritual world. It is an experience that can heal and support our walk in ordinary reality. Each time and type of journey will take a person deeper into the sacred union with their spiritual authentic self.
Facilitated Journeys are when someone other than yourself provides you with support and energetic assistance in a journey. Very much akin to a guided meditation.
Personal journey's are when you are journeying on your own. This can include music or drumming to assist you in the process. Many times this is for wisdom or specific guidance on an issue to obtain clarity.
Sacred Vision Quest are when you spend from one to three days (or more) in a journey. This is really a life transforming experience that has profound impacts.
Healing journey's can be done on your own or with a facilitator who is experienced in healing during journey's. This can include soul retrieval to healing karmic issues.
It would be near impossible in these short blogs to answer and teach all the facets of journeying, but it is hoped that this has answered some of your basic questions.
It is important to remember that taking a journey is only one aspect of seeking guidance and wisdom. The energetic flow of the spiritual realm exists in the here and now. Be sure to not limit yourself.
