Anubis Meditation


I like to use the iconography of the Gods from many different cultures and religions. Granted, I may take a little creative license with them, in the end it is for good purpose so I am sure they don't mind! Remember to do the mind sweep before trying this one! The following meditation is all about judgments, here you will meet Anubis He is an Egyptian God of Death, he weighs the hearts of those who have passed over, and makes judgment. Please read through this meditation first as there are going to be places you need to fill in.

You walk into a tomb, its tan colored block walls are cold to the touch but torches warm the room, you follow a passageway deeper into the earth. The steep decline seems to go on forever, the light from the torches cast eerie shadows and you feel as though you are not alone. You come upon a door, it’s iron handle cold to the touch. Hesitantly you open it, you enter into a room filled with light. A giant scale lies in the center, and a black dog headed figure stands to the left of it.
“Why are you here?” He asks in a deep gravelly voice.
“To have my self-judgments weighed.” You reply.
“As you will.” He approaches you standing to your left. You notice on one side of the scale is a feather on the other is nothing. This is where you judgment will go.
Anubis continues on,” If your judgment is true then you will rise higher then the feather, if it proves false you will sink lower. Because truth unburdens us and makes us lighter, lies weigh us down and keeps us from growing. Sit upon the scale.”
You follow his direction and sit on the right side of the scale the brass is cold on your buttocks, you tremble a little bit out of nervous then the scale begins to move, you hold on to two of the three chains connected to the plate as the scale balances itself.
After a couple of minutes you are equal to the feather. 
“What is your first judgment?” Anubis asks his black eyes seem to see through you, into your very being.
“My name is (insert your name here)” Slowly the scale moves, you begin to descend, and then ascend.
“Truth, your name is (insert your name here)”
“I am not perfect, even though I should be.” Your side of the scale moves downward, then up, then down again.
“False, you are perfect. Just as you were meant to be.” 
“I am to skinny/fat” Your side of the scale stays just as it is.
“False. You are not to skinny/fat.”
Continue through your own self-judgments let Anubis help you, but please be honest with yourself you will get nowhere if you do not.
You leave the room closing the heavy door behind you, you walk up the tunnel back towards the main entrance. There is no fear in the tunnel now only a bright light as if it were day, no shadows leap upon the walls. You enter the main room of the tomb and walk out the entrance and into the light of the day. You will wake feeling refreshed, renewed, rejuvenated and loved.
