|Day 2: Find items for your symbols
||How did you feel?
||The meditation was interesting but I wasn't absolutely sure that the chosen symbols/archetypes were anything other than my imagination. However, there is a definite sense, in collecting the images of a jigsaw puzzle getting put together or even the idea of a magic spell being invoked. The images have a resonance and they represent an ideal world in some way.
||In what way did you find the challenge useful?
Remember even if the challenge was negative this is an excellent learning for yourself.
|The challenge is useful in that it's focusing on deeply held emotions and associations. In bringing them to the surface it allows my to conciously think about them and. on a deeper level, maybe make them real - 'The Alchemist'.
||What insight did you gain?
||Searching for the images is a kind of journey. Although I might start out with a pre-conceived idea about what I'm looking for, ultimately I tend to get sidetracked. The images that result from this accidental approach tend to be just as resonant/relevant. Maybe, trying to control the way things turn out is counter productive. A route to the 'ends' is already there it might be a matter of not looking too hard for it.
||What did you learn about yourself?
||Something, I probably already know really, and that is, I don't believe anything can happen without me instigating it in the first place.
