The Uranian Meditation technique works particularly well in weird conditions like this. I know the old Vedic formulas are trendy at the moment but this is Space Weather: geomagnetic fuqery, high solar winds, and electrical strangeness.
Animals, winds, and the ancestral part of you pick up on it via a level of the psyche that humans don’t use or talk about much.
Now, the meditation may not seem like a meditation at first but really, it’s a different system. As Steve Blamire writes, in Magic Of The Celtic Otherworld, the concept of detaching from physicality is just one system. The other is that you observe, see, and immerse in everything.
“The ways of the East tend to put the emphasis on rising above the temptations of the flesh or the distractions of the mind. The Western system stresses becoming absorbed in this world, what is happening in it and within yourself.”
Notice everything. Imagine if every single object was important or had a message and coincidence was impossible.
So the meditation is super-easy. List the name of every single street you ever lived in, starting with the one you were in as a baby. Don’t put ‘street’ or ‘avenue’ or whatever, just the name. It doesn’t matter if you forget some and you only need to include the number if it strikes you as relevant.
Now sit or lie down, close your eyes OR go for a walk and examine this list in your mind as if it were a Rosetta Stone or story clues and every single street name had a magical meaning. Yes, it’s imagination but if you let your mind try this, you come up with incredible insights. It’s probably more like a surrealist exercise than a traditional meditation but it works.
Don’t let logic intrude. This is a Uranian mind-trip, not your debt repayment spreadsheet. For instance, maybe “Arthur Avenue” was named after the town clerk but free-associate and say it’s King Arthur or Arcturus.
If you don’t know what the name of the street means, look up the etymology or origin.
