The Group Meditation

A couple of years ago I attended a workshop on Crystal and Gemstone Healing.  Throughout the day I learned so much about various crystals, practiced healing techniques, and had open discussions with my classmates about how these pieces of nature have bettered our lives.  At the end of that amazing day we were asked to participate in a guided meditation.  The Shaman woman teaching the class set an enormous clear crystal in the center of our small circle and told us it was an Isis crystal quartz.  She told us to close our eyes and then asked us to travel to Egypt where we will go inside a building of our choosing to meet with Isis for guidance.  It sounded simple enough and I was excited to participate since I had never actually done a group meditation before.

The teacher began playing her crystal singing bowl (an amazing experience to behold, I might add), and we all closed our eyes and began.  I sat there slightly uncomfortable at first.  I peeked a few times at my peers just to make sure they were all taking it seriously.  They were.  I began counting down to my deep meditative state like I always do and I allowed the vibrations from the crystal singing bowl to take me even deeper into the meditation.  I began swaying slightly and I felt this intense heat as if I just walked into a sauna.  I immediately found myself in the streets of ancient Egypt.  The heat was so overpowering and I was completely blown away.

I began walking down the street and found this massive stone building that beckoned to me and pulled me inside.  I walked through the open doorway and down several flights of stairs.  The farther down I went the deeper I became in my meditative state.  I finally made it down to the underground area and found this beautiful woman standing in front of me.  I knew she was Isis.

Isis had shoulder length black hair, a beautiful golden crown on her head, and dark olive colored skin.  She barely had any clothes on and she didn't seem to mind in the slightest.  I stood there in awe for awhile and finally I asked her to please tell me anything I need to know in order to grow and move forward in my spiritual journey.  She smiled a radiant and serene smile and nodded.  She told me to stop pushing things so much, to let things just naturally happen.  She said "You have all the tools, all the knowledge, already in your grasp.  Have faith and be confident."  Then she hugged me and said goodbye.

I turned away and began my ascent back up the stairs.  I walked through the open doorway, back onto the street, and made my way back to my body.  I opened my eyes just as the crystal singing bowl came to an end.  I realized I was covered in sweat.  I was shocked and amazed at how powerful and vivid the meditation was.  The fact that I actually felt the intense heat of Egypt and had a conversation with a Goddess amazed and humbled me.  It definitely changed my life.  Plus, her message offered me a lot of inner peace.

I'm sad to say that I haven't had the chance to be a part of a group meditation since.  I'm hoping one day to attend another one or to start my own regular guided meditation groups.  The amount of energy radiating through that room was absolutely incredible.  And it was just such a cool experience.  I hope to have the chance to share that with others in the future.

Thank you for reading my blog.
