Cross Over

A "Cross-Over" exercise is a way of getting out of an energy rut or a comfort zone that requires the shifting of mental energy. It sets up opposite energies, with water being a powerful energy for "clearing."  A Cross-Over is also very helpful if you do not know which direction you should go in.

Visualize a stream of water that can be crossed by walking over a bridge. It is important to touch the water on your forehead and give thanks to the water. Say, either to yourself or out loud, that you are going to experience Cross-Over to move yourself in the direction of healing. Slowly walk across the bridge while looking ahead, rather than down at the water.

"Feel" the sense of energy movement as you continue to move slowly. If you sense someone crossing in front or behind you, just stop and let this "person" pass. Continue to move across until you feel a sense of calm. Once you feel the sense of calm, then "feel" which is more comfortable: looking up the stream in the direction it is flowing from, or looking down the stream in the direction it is flowing to? Note where are you on the Bridge? Are you near where you started, the middle or the opposite side?

Continue slowly across to the other side. Once you have crossed, explore your feelings. The messages will tell you the direction with which you are connected. Sometimes you get very subtle messages, or a picture of something that may not fit until a later time. If you are in the middle of the bridge when you feel the sense of calm, then you are all right being with others and allowing the energy to go around you. If you are at the starting side, then you may not be ready for the change. If you feel the sense of calm at the other side, then your spirit has already made the change and may be waiting for you. Looking up the stream refers to being actively involved, and looking down stream means you are probably ready to disengage a little now, or maybe you can just follow rather than trying to lead.
