Just what is the “Inner Guide Meditation?” It is a tool for getting valuable information from our unconscious to our conscious mind to bring us closer to our personal Center. It involves active imagination, Archetypes, Astrology, Tarot, and Kabbalah. These time-tested tools have been combined by Edwin Steinbrecher (1930-2002) to give us a meditation for working in and on our Inner Plane. Within the meditation we experience and communicate with our Inner Guides, who give us the love, protection, and guidance no one on the outer plane could hope to give over our life time. They neither tell us what someone else is thinking or doing, nor do they help us take revenge upon someone else. The archetypes in our Inner world are neutral living aspects of Spirit within us; each appearing in a way our individual egos can experience and understand what they are willing to communicate to us if we ask. They influence behavior from us and projected onto us.
My own involvement with the Inner Guide Meditation began in 1992 when I went for what I thought was merely a “Reading” of my natal chart by Ed Steinbrecher. An Astrologer myself, I was interested to hear Ed’s interpretation of my chart and, perhaps, learn more about giving good Readings. I heard through the grapevine that Ed was a good Astrologer — I had not heard anything else. To my amazement, Ed began telling me how my family members were barometers for what was going on in my own life. I thought to myself: “this isn’t what I came here for.” — Then he took me on an inner journey I didn’t want to end. Since that time, regular meditation has proven its worth in my relationships, career, and decision-making. My Inner Work has changed my Outer World for the better — not without challenges, of course, but certainly with more “tools” to work through them. I completed training with Ed and other teachers to be an Initiator of the meditation, and I encourage people to begin a new and improved cycle in their lives with the Inner Guide Meditation by doing the initiation with me and/or with the help of Ed’s book and mine.
We have all the answers to our personal spirituality inside ourselves — we just needed a tool to get them out and working for us. Here are two books to help bring you closer to “Center” starting from age 7 with our Silent Partners! Ed Steinbrecher’s book is “The Inner Guide Meditation, a Technology for the 21st Century,” and mine is “Swimming in Your Brain – a Practicum to the Inner Guide Meditation.” You might find it useful to peruse the following pages of both books before reading them cover to cover — which you are likely to do more than once.
