Magician Meditation

You are the Magician; feel the power surge through you.

You stand in a room lit brightly by sunlight.  Two candles burn, a black one and a white one.  Consider their harmony; they represent male and female – the balance of the universal force.  You seek this balance within yourself.  Think of a set of scales – try to balance the scales in your mind.  Keep them balanced as you journey on.

Over your hand floats the symbol of eternity.  This represents the universal life force.  It flows around you and within you.  Your power is part of this force.  Know that it has no beginning and no end.  Like the flowing lemniscate it flows forever.  See the force within it and know that it is within you.

Upon your table are the tools of your power.  They represent the four elements: air, fire, water and earth.  Do not dwell upon the nature of these forces right now; simply know that they exist and you may wield them as you will.  These are the tools of your power; you are able to use them at will to create your desire.  Remember the balance; harmony is a delicate thing so remember that when you take you must also give back.  Keep balancing the scales as you move on your journey.

You wear horns upon your head.  This reminds you of Cernunnos: the male deity, part of the universal balance of yin and yang.  He reminds you of the nature of deity – like the cosmic force, it is both within you and without you.  You are part of the God and he is part of you.  You are a powerful being, but you also have a responsibility to use your power wisely, both for your own good and the good of the Earth.   The horns also remind you that you are part of the animal kingdom.  This reminds you that we are all related; we are all part of the sacred hoop of life, brothers and sisters on Mother Earth.  It reminds you to Walk in Beauty and Harmony with all life.   If you see a particular creature at this point on your journey, welcome him into your heart, he has some wisdom to share with you.  He will walk with you even after you finish this guided journey.

Look at the light that shines from the candles.  Focus on the light; feel it suffusing your body with warmth.  Feel the light flow through every part of your body.  This is the light of the God and the Goddess. Know that it protects and sustains you.  Feel it as a sphere around you which is always there.  Whenever you feel the need of it, remind yourself of your sphere of light.

Allow the flowing lemniscate grow.  As it grows, it becomes translucent, fading from your vision.  It becomes so great that it is embraces everything.  Understand that you can reconnect with this force any at any time.

When you feel ready, begin the journey back to normal time and space.  Give your thanks to the elements and allow the tools before you to disappear.  Give your thanks to any animal helpers that you met on this journey.  Be at peace with yourself.

Allow your eyes to return to their normal vision.  Sit quietly for a few moments while you bring yourself back into your normal physical being.
