I sat with the baby effigy I made yesterday when I sat for my client this morning. As I closed my eyes I asked crow to work with me, and show me what I needed to see, to assist my client.
I saw a room, quite large, darkened by half closed curtains. In this room I experienced what felt like a teenage part of my client. This part of her felt very lonely and isolated. I could feel fear. I noticed that the teenage part also had a distinct much young feel as well. It was like I could feel a younger child part inside the teenage part.
I asked crow to ask this part of her what they needed. This part asked for a teddy bear, which crow gave it. The teenage part tried to connect with the teddy bear, but the feeling space was of giving up. It felt like the teenage part felt it should get comfort from the bear, but couldn't.
I sat with this part, and offered this part my witnessing. After a while I asked this part if I could offer a song. This part indicated it would allow me to offer a song. The song was a whistling song, similar to what I have heard made by the Icaros whistling.
I felt that this song went into the heart space of this part, soothing it and connecting it back into the web of life.
After I finished this journey I wrote it up and emailed it to my client. Then I mediated for myself. It was interesting to feel the contrast between the journey space for the client and my personal mediation. I was curious to see if there would be a strong overlap, and the client experiences would intrude into my personal space.
There was a small amount of noticing of other nuanced feelings I shared with my client once I had finished mediating, but most of the experience of mediating after journeying felt discreet and differentiated.
