Still working mostly on meditative trance this week, and looking for an audio track I like. It seems like white noise (or similar) is going to be best for me for maintaining a better focus and a deeper state of trance work. I did two trance journeys this week, both starting from my mental grove, and they felt mostly like “wandering” – I don’t think I encountered anything significant, other than that some of my spirit guides (specifically the brown and white rabbit) have been in and out of them a lot. Neither one achieved a particularly deep trance state, but I do think a light trance was maintained for both.
Began reading Ecstatic Trance: New Ritual Body Postures this week as well.
So far my best results have been with guided journeys that I’m finding on youtube (nothing particularly special, just exploratory nature things). I’m finding that I have a lot of anxiety in trance, so I’d like to start exploring ways to deal with that, without having to take meds for it.
This was a “keep on keepin’ on” kind of week – daily practice most days, short weekend practice, and nothing particularly special going on. I’ve started making offerings to Thunor specifically to keep the rain away because I am so tired of not having a driveway (ours was torn out on May 24, and it is STILL NOT THERE because it keeps flooding).
