Penny for Your Thoughts: Is this the Best Meditation for Making a Big Decision?

Did you know that American adults make around 35,000 decisions per day?

Many of these daily decisions go unnoticed, but they still take a toll on the person. And sometimes, making all these decisions can lead people to have difficulty making decisions in general, cause attention deficits, and affect the person’s self-control. The term used to describe this phenomenon is “decision fatigue,” It can be incredibly taxing for people. Studies show that around 50% of people struggle with decision fatigue.

But what if you had help?

Imagine consulting powerful, ancient beings and receiving the knowledge necessary to make your most important decisions and the power to get things done.

Imagine consulting powerful, ancient beings and receiving the knowledge necessary to make your most important decisions and the power to get things done. That’s what this post is about. Within the article, you will find a brief history of The Wildwood Meditation Technique, followed by the walk-through of the technique.

How did ancient Celtic shamans receive guidance?

While reading one afternoon, I came across a meditation technique that I found interesting. One reason for the intrigue is that I have come across a variation of it before. But this time, the idea behind the meditation technique was that Celtic shamans imagine the Wildwood when they want to receive guidance.

The meditation is the Spirit of the Wildwood meditation. Before exploring the technique, let’s start with a brief backstory of the Wildwood in Celtic lore.

What does the term Wildwood mean?

The Wildwood refers to the pre-Viking and pre-Celtic world- a forest world that once covered most of the world. There, primal forces resided. These primal forces appeared in the form of birds, fish, and animals, and they roamed free. The forces opened the doors to the primal world of the Ancestors- the Underworld. 

What is the significance of the Wildwood to Celtic shamans?

The Wildwood meditations were intended for initiating a powerful connection with the Wildwood spirits. Personal encounters with the Wildwood spirits provided Celtic shamans with knowledge and helped them make decisions.

Celtic lore states that the Wildwood spirits taught Celtic shamans through the connection. While the meditations can be used in various other ways, Celtic shamans classified the meditations as Wild Magic, which conjures the energy of the Wildwood and the living spirits of the forest.

This meditation is powerful for making big decisions, making it incredibly valuable to entrepreneurs and anyone else needing to make big decisions.

The Wildwood Meditation Technique

Envision the Wildwood and imagine that you are walking through it. As you walk along, imagine that you come upon a clearing with a path that forks. Standing there, ask the spirits of the Wildwood about the decision you are facing.

Then, spend some time listening for an answer.

*Optionally, you might like to set a timer before starting the meditation.

Try this technique, and let me know what you think.
