'Still not sure if I am 'doing it right'. But I keep sitting with magical self experiences unfolding. I felt a deeply wounded part of me today. A part long forgotten, deeply traumatised. I felt her as dead. I struggled to breathe. Crow was there strongly. I felt crow in front of me, I noticed me noticing crows wings softly beating, I noticed me noticing crow showing me how to regulate this part, how to be 'normal' (really how to be in a natural state of being, not a traumitised state of being, me mirroring crows natural state of being).
I felt the strong uncomfortable feelings this part holds, holding this part tight, as crow worked with me to look for a way to include her tightly. Again, the surfaces of these feeling states felt rich and alive, containing a lot of information, linking to stories and memories of the past.
Working working to hold and heal.
With my Masters writing now completed, I have started reading Sandra Ingerman's beginning guide to journeying. So far what she says feels (mostly) resonant with my practicing.
Crow is traveling strongly with me today, I feel his (?) clarity, sharp eyes and beak and bristling health. The felt sense of crow in my body feels empowering to my well being, providing a resource to hold myself together.
