FRIENDS ON THE INSIDE
One of the best things you can do is cultivate a whole pantheon of 'inner friends' - guides and helpers, spirits and animals and energetic beings that you work with in meditation. You can build a whole cosmology inside yourself and wonderful creatures will come and meet you there, adding so much richness and power to your inner work.
They are your dream friends, your protectors, your most wondrous and creative allies.
They love you in ways you can't imagine and they see things from an extraordinary vantage point. Call to them, believe in them, go to them, follow them.
For more of my enthusiastic riffing on this idea listen to Episode 6 of Experiment With the Idea - VIPs.
To get right to it and call them to you check out the WOLF meditation.
