Healing and Integration - Lavender Spirit

Mar 15, 2020
 

As well as learning, developing and divining, we need times when we are allowed to integrate the changes and growth that has occurred.  When we are changing patterns that have become imbedded in us- there often is a necessary period of soaking up the changes - neurologically, emotionally, chemically, physically, and spiritually.

This week we include a Healing Transmission- relaxation for you.

These healing transmissions are gifts from the spirits to assist us in those integration times.  When our 'seeking' minds can rest and our whole system can re-align.

This audio relaxation and guidance is one of the many meditations within our course, Your Spirit Allies which starts this April 1.

 

NOTE ON OILS- this guidance comes directly from the essential oil and spirits of the Lavender plant, if you have the oil, you may enjoy working with it.  If not, the healing works without it as well!  You may enjoy gazing at the image of Lavender here to help you...

Local Spirits

Mar 09, 2020
 

This week, we look at the importance of the 'direction' and orientation to the local spirits.  This is an aspect of orientation that can get overlooked in many people's practices.  However, when you begin to highlight these connections, you deepen the help and support for your healing sessions with yourself or with others. We offer guidance for how to include the local spirits in your shamanic rituals.

 

Video Transcription:


Hello and welcome to Shaman College podcast. My name is Kimba.

As I sit here, I am tuning in and welcoming the direction of the local spirits. And this is a direction that I want to discuss with you today and look at.  As I sit here, I'm in my treatment space and the local spirits are interwoven into this treatment space. So many healing sessions have been done here, and I know that the trees that overlook this space the plants, the fox paths, the underground stream, the birds that live in the hedges and trees, the...

The Hollow Bone

Mar 03, 2020
 

In this video, Kimba welcomes you into an experience of the Hollow Bone. This is the state of being through which shamanic healing can occur. It is a place of both presence and emptiness. It is the fullest emptiness. To work within this state a shedding of persona and beliefs is required. This is a practice that seems to develop with time and yet, it is accessible to all at any moment

 

Video Transcript:

Hello, my name is Kimba and this is our Shaman college blog. Welcome. This week I would like to explore and share with you the hollow bone. This is the state of being that we enter into as we do shamanic healing work.

The hollow bone or I sometimes say the "hollow one".

Let's look at this together...what is there to look at? Well first of all, we don't become the "hollow" do we? The hollow, you can't see it. It is the space, the rich full space. But the bone, the bone is form. The bone is some thing that you can contact.

So the hollow bone becomes a metaphorical touchstone,...

A Psychopomp Story

Feb 24, 2020
 

Psychopomp is an advanced healing art that many but not all shamans practice. Sometimes through the process of life, dying and death- an individual soul can remain in this Middle world, bound by confusion, loss, or desires to hold-on in some ways to this world. Practitioners work with their spirit guides to assist these souls to freedom.

We share this video with you, to demonstrate a real example of a Psycopomp session and to illustrate some of the aspects of this beautiful and very needed healing art.

 

Video Transcript:

Hello and welcome. In this video, I'm going to share with you a personal few sessions that I did having to do with psychopomp and it's personal because these were sessions for my grandmother.  I will explain to you the details, but I will show you how the ramifications and the implications reach out to a broader community.

Before we get into the details though, I want you to know that I'm coming from a place of deep honouring, gratitude and respect to...

Senses, Subtle Senses, Your Super Powers

Feb 13, 2020
 

There can be a tendency among us humans, especially in today’s digital and technological world, to depend on our visual sense. Have you seen people sucked in to their screens? Maybe you have noticed your own tendencies? What is happening is that many people are basically ‘watching the show’ of life.

As sensitive beings, as people drawn to Earth-based spirituality, healing, and the shamanic views, we can work with our senses, subtle senses, and emotional senses in a way that taps us in to our super powers and allows us to both receive information and offer assistance out into our world.

In this video I share insights into some of our subtle senses, and encourage you to  ‘look’ within and become aware of your own tendencies. All of us are impacted by our inherited and environmental factors, which create certain filters on our various senses. However, these can be cleared and opened and assist in a deep healing. This can happen for you with a...

Holding Love for the Earth- Interview and "Practise"

Sep 27, 2019
 

You are invited into a meeting with Kimba Bridgeman and Catherine Center... as they discuss, practice and hold love for Mother Earth.

Catherine is one of our teachers and mentors.  She shares with us her personal practise, her wisdom and dedication to healing and love for Earth.

Together, Kimba and Catherine speak about shamanic healing as a daily individual reality that does not depend on client-based work, yet is needed and important here today.  They also explore the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine as both beautiful when they are in their highest and fullest vibration. These discussions are further invitations for you to explore your own views, beliefs and insights.

Finally, there is a proposal for the whole of the Shaman College community to join in a daily practise of holding love for Mother Earth.  Each of us can do this - even if its for only 5 minutes a day, at anytime that is convenient to our lives.

This international community practise (practice)......

Graduate Interviews: Wise Mama Shaman

Sep 04, 2019
 

In this meeting with Nshimta, we get into a wide range of topics from the power in journeying with a drum to the art of psychopomp and its importance here.

It is always a joy to meet up with our graduates and hear about their work.  They are all inspiring beings. One of the things that stands out to me... across all of our teachers and practitioners, is the realness.  You know, when that ego is set aside and the real, true vibration flows from a place of gratitude and honouring for this beautiful place that we all share.

When I met with Nshimta, I got that feeling I was with a healer and wisdom keeper from many traditions.  She brings in her vast experience in bodywork, chiropractics, nutrition, Chinese medicine and more into a spiritual and full view of our life here. An experienced healer from many paths, Nshimta is a blessing to be with.

I believe this interview is 'just' a meeting and sampling of the wisdom that Nshimta has to offer us all.  I personally...

Sharing here some key aspects of how shamanic spiritual healing is needed here today for our far-too-often scattered lives.  With our health and well-being separated into categories, we can really use that interconnected web of spiritual healing that weaves us back together.
