      Asking the Universe for Guidance

      I have been pretty ill lately, one thing after another it seems, so the other night before going to bed, I closed my eyes and asked for the healing energy of the universe to guide me. Since I don't believe in a god watching over us, I guess you could call it an open prayer to the heavens. I do this from time to time and I have been trying to do it more frequently. I close my eyes and just let the positive energy flow from the heart and into the heart. Well, a couple of nights ago, I had a very interesting experience. As the positive energy was flowing, I asked that the universe would take care of me the following day as I had a long early morning drive to LA for a company meeting. I also wanted to be at peace that my illness would not flare up and cause me to have to leave early or get up during an inconvient moment and have to leave suddenly or pass out or whatever. As I was doing this whole prayer/meditation I began to have a vision. I could see a thick dark beard and thick cracked lips of a man. I couldn't see the rest of the face however, the beard and the angle of the beard was very district. I had a feeling it was something important so I tried to keep the vision longer and then I saw the mans lips move like he was blowing a kiss and sneering at the time. I had a feeling this man was up to something bad. Anyway the vision faded and I fell to sleep.
      The next morning when I finally arrived at the meeting and everything was going a long fine, I noticed the guy sitting across the room directly in front of me. He had the same beard and fat red lips as the guy from my vision. I new at that moment it was the same person. I kept an eye on him for the rest of the meeting and noticed how he would turn his head and sneer every time the older lady next to him spoke or asked a question. He would turn his head toward two other employees that he seemed to know and make stupid gesturing regarding the woman. The lady is a newer employee and very nice. Very upbeat and sweet. I found him to be almost disgusting as I watched him do this through out the afternoon. I even caught him doing it when I spoke once. I was amazed that upper management didn't cmatch on to his behavior.
      Anyway it was an interesting coincidence or premonition.
      Any thoughts on this or similar experiences while meditating anyone?

      Yeah, this happens pretty frequently to anyone whose undertaken spiritual practices. Being more 'in tune' with the way the world works seems to have this side-effect. What you're experiencing is something thousands of people have all throughout history. Keep meditating and it'll happen more. Try asking the universe for visions. My way of doing it is closing my eyes, meditating for a while then imaginining myself sitting in a room(this is similar to how I V-WILD). Once I feel like I'm actually in the room, I either open a small 'vortex' via the chaos vortex rite(look it up on a chaosmatrix archive) or find a book and open it and read what's inside. I'm not sure if this'll work for you, so, instead, try imagining pure knowledge of the future flowing into you instead of healing energy.

      What you're doing is using your own system of magick. There's tons of them, but at their core, they all do the same thing. Once you develop your system more you can use it for tons more stuff. I mostly use mine for money, improved charisma, general good luck and enlightnment. Yeah, selfish, but 20$ is 20$.

      If you wanna learn more about this stuff, I recommend surfing the /r/occult subreddit. I'd also pick up a copy of Liber Null, Oven-ready Chaos Magick and Initiation into Hermetics. If you've already had visions of the future and healed yourself using magick, how crazy can it be to believe in more than just that?

      Through my experience, became aware of my breath, then
      Began to cultivate my art with the intention of the heart,
      Started to use my sentences as reflections.
      And what I saw was God was in all of us and we all come to be interconnected.
      And all that was depended on all of us
      And had effects like a domino when you let it.
      Go with the flow, that the universe holds.

      Thanks for that proctree. Ill look up the links. Sometimes I get images like that spontaneously, however this was a bit of a different experience since it was a live person and I will absolutely try what you recommended. Thanks again.

      I think the reason that guy gets away with it is that he's pretty good at stuff himself, so he's considered more valuable than the people he's cutting down. Or he's been successful at creating a false impression of competence through his arrogance, or more likely some combination. Often people like that are quite talented in a superficial kind of way, but since their limitation is superficiality, they're not very good at recognizing the value of people who are different from them. If they're ambitious, and want a lot more than they really deserve, that compounds the problem.

      If I were his boss, I'd tell him to work really hard on changing his behavior, or else try to find somewhere else to work. It doesn't seem to me that many managers have much time for management any more though, they're almost fully busy competing amongst each other, deflecting blame for failures, and claiming credit for other people's work. I'd guess that's the main thing going on here, just a lack of accountability due to apathy.

      I don't think your dream was random.

      I live in San Diego by the way.

      I hope you feel better. I was chronically sick many years ago, so I have some idea what that's like.
