Welcome to the Personal Development Meditation Podcast, episode 0.
I just want to give ye a little overview about who I am, and talk about the technique we use in this podcast because it’s quite unique, and then we’ll kick into the meditations in the next episode.
So, I’m Lora O’Brien, I’m Irish (in case you couldn’t tell from the accent) born and reared, and I grew up here in Ireland with a deep love of our native mythology, spirituality and stories.
When I was 15, I started studying indigenous spiritualities and native religions from around the world, as well as diving deeper into our own heritage here in Ireland, and side by side those interests have led me to become a priestess of the old ways, or Ban Draoí in my native language of Irish Gaeilge.
I was always fascinated by the similarities between ancient societies, and in particular – tribal shamanic cultures. Pre-christian Ireland was a shamanic society, with Draoí or Druids performing functions of priesthood and prophecy, as well as being doctors, lawyers, judges, poets and bards in later centuries.
Becoming ever more familiar with my own history, I began to see cross cultural commonalities, and when I formally began to study Psychology many years later, it was the final piece of the puzzle for me, in particular the work of Carl Jung.
His Collective Unconscious was my Irish Otherworld, his archetypal figures my Gods, Guides and Guardians.
I began to formalize my technique for Journeying to the Otherworld, and returning safely, so that I could explain it better to people, so that I could teach it as a tool for personal development or spiritual exploration – or both – so that others could benefit from it the way I have.
This is not your average guided meditation. This is a system developed directly from my experiences with native Irish energies, refined through current knowledge and experience certainly, but in essence and power – direct from source.
The episodes are weekly meditations from Stage 1 of this technique, meant to be done a few times through the week before the new one.
You are looking for personal development meditation that is safe, psychologically sound, and good for you.
Here you go. Enjoy the show!
