Suspension exercises have a long and storied tradition around the world, from Odin hanging on the Worldtree for nine days, to Native American Sundance rituals, and Russian shamanic initiation rituals. Metaphorically, the initiate undertaking the trial is stretched between the Earth and the heavens, both physically and spiritually, and they usually gain fantastic insight, but these sorts of trials are physically very dangerous.
It is the contrast between the Earthly and the Heavenly that opens the self to new ideas, concepts, and energies, so this particular meditation exercise is designed to safely mimic a suspension exercise without the health hazards.
Firstly, by 'grounding' you to the Earth and to your body by using a crystal singing bowl and a visualization to more fully open your root or base chakra you are connected to and reminded of the Earthly realm, firmly 'seating' yourself on the bedrock of safety the planet itself provides our species.
Then a different crystal bowl and another visualization are used to open your crown chakra, opening your mind and spirit to the endless possibilities of the infinite universe around and within us. By reaching into the infinite with your feet planted firmly on the earth, you learn to manifest more of these possibilities into your life and spiritual practices.
Come to this meditation session with Jason as your guide, and stretch yourself!
