After completing Part 1:
Begin a journal and after each meditation, write about the following:
- On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being “effortless,” to what degree were you able to “let go” and give yourself over to the guided meditation?
- Who showed up in your “crowd?”
- What feelings of resentment, shame, or regret were in the trunk or footlocker?
- What people and/or events are connected with those feelings?
- Describe your Healing Goddess and any feelings or messages you received from her.
- Write down your Healing Intention. If it isn’t already, revise it to begin with the words, “I am……”
- What feelings did you experience during the meditation?
- How did you feel by the end?
- Did you learn anything new from today’s meditation?
I welcome questions and comments by email: Paul@PaulBabin.com or in the form at the bottom of the page.
After completing Part 2:
In Part 2 you had an imaginary experience of burning paper on which was written your negative feelings and judgments. This is based on a powerful tool called Purge Writing. I strongly recommend it, and this is how it works:
- Set a timer for no less than 10 minutes and no more than 30 minutes.
- Get a blank pad of paper with plenty of pages (not your journal).
- Light a candle.
- Write every negative thought and feeling that you crosses your mind. “Vomit out” all your upset onto the pages. Do not hold back. Do not read what you have written. These are your most unrestrained, vile and upsetting judgments and emotions, and you don’t want these going back into your consciousness by looking it again. Don’t bother trying to keep it legible.
- When you’re finished, burn it.
- While burning the pages, set your intention to release the thoughts and feelings you wrote on the pages.
This process can powerfully move negative energy. There’s something about taking pen to paper in releasing emotions that’s more effective than just talking or waiting for tomorrow to feel better.
