Our minds can be divided into four states, beta, alpha, delta and theta. The beta state is our everyday busy mind jumping from thing to thing. The deepest most relaxed state that is still awake is the theta state. In the theta state we may see things in symbols and visuals instead of words. It is in the theta state that we can discover our deepest truths. It is the place that holds wisdom and guidance for us. I also experience this state when doing shamanic journeys to the beat of a drum or rattle. To me this is a very magical place that gives us guidance for our inquiries and intentions.
The particular theta meditations we did were from author, Patt Lind-Kyle who wrote “Heal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain”. These are guided meditations where you end up in a cottage that has a long hallway with colored doors with symbols on the left and the right. First you stop at a door on the left and go inside and then one on the right where you also go inside. Stepping through the door takes you into a landscape that is in resonance to your question or intention. Each person’s experience will be unique to them.
Erin and I did the guided theta meditations at each new juncture of creating the Guiding Signs 101 cards. Erin and I wanted to honor the guidance and images that came to us. They became part of the images on the cards and on the box.
