Can someone help me with an issue after a meditation session?

I’m interested in Celtic Shamanism. I was in my sacred circle and trying to get in touch with my power animal. I went to the cove like I’ve done previously and nothing really seemed out of place, I get to the cove and I have a very uneasy feeling, I walk inside to find my power animal but instead I find a tall figure standing where my power animal usually rested. The figure turns around, and it’s an older man 50-ish with reddish-brown hair and a full beard. He is wearing what looked like an alter boy’s robe. His facial expression disturbed me, it looked like intense fear but did not say a word. He was pointing at me and I looked down and noticed that his right hand was broken and the fingers were contorted. I quickly left and was able to get out of meditation. I grounded myself and left my circle. Now every time that I close my eyes, I see this man as if he’s here. I don’t mean in my mind, but in my house and I do not know what to do about it!


  1. Before you begin to meditate protect yourself. There are many ways of doing this. A white light is a good way. Know that you are safe and protected then next time you see him. Ask him who he is. Maybe he is a guide.

  2. But now God has shown us a way to be made right with him without keeping the requirements of the law, as was promised in the writings of Moses and the prophets long ago. We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are.
    For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past, for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time. God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, and he declares sinners to be right in his sight when they believe in Jesus.
    Can we boast, then, that we have done anything to be accepted by God? No, because our acquittal is not based on obeying the law. It is based on faith. So we are made right with God through faith and not by obeying the law.
    After all, is God the God of the Jews only? Isn’t he also the God of the Gentiles? Of course he is. There is only one God, and he makes people right with himself only by faith, whether they are Jews or Gentiles. Well then, if we emphasize faith, does this mean that we can forget about the law? Of course not! In fact, only when we have faith do we truly fulfill the law.

  3. the right hand broken and contorted, can represent productivity being compromised.
    if the fingers were involved it would indicate that there is aneed to pay attention to details and not ignore those things that need to be dealt with. this may be due to fear of consequences or failure.
    an alter boy is representative of purity and innocence and yet he is an older man. this could represent naivity, or even a lack of knowledge that should be gained as one grows. i would be inclined to pay attention to details and take care of any outstanding matters that need to be dealt with, also do not ignore things that you know you should be looking at.
    the nature of your meditation would indicate that you were being given a message either by your higher understanding or a guide.

  4. I agree with Sherri. I also meditate, but start in my safest place, a box of white light. I then concentrate on where I want to go, and doorknobs appear. I use these to esit into another place. When I want to meet my spirit animal, I open a door outside a cave. I also know that if I become scared, I can return to my white light. This is important, because it gives me strength to face whatever I need to. It’s a little like out of body experiences, where some talk about being “connected” to the body still. It is possible that in your meditative state, you attracted either something unwanted, or you briefly slept (which happens). It will take a while to shake, but try to bring on your power animal to help you take on this challenge.

  5. There is no guarantee that your power animal/spirit guide will always appear to you in the same form. I can give you general interpretations but the ultimate answers are yours and yours alone to find. Replay the whole experience and take it apart in anyway you like. Notice what’s readily apparent and also the symbolism involved. The message will be there for you. Good luck.

  6. It sounds as though something has gone quite badly wrong if you are seeing the man all the time, the images you see in meditation should be left there after you have closed-down and grounded yourself. I don’t know if you’re keeping a journal of your sessions but this can help with closing them. The fact that you are experiencing this sort of after-effect from meditation suggests that you may be trying to go a bit too fast on your path and you should maybe give yourself a complete break for something like six months with no meditation and just concentrate on mundane practical things to get this vision out of your mind if you don’t want it at the moment. Then give meditation another go when you’re ready, but stop again if the same thing happens and images from meditation won’t go away.
