At a time when what is placed in front of our human systems... is further and further from natural, it is of utmost importance that we 'stretch' our senses on a continual basis.
You can think of your body in a 'regular' way to help see what I mean. You are probably familiar that physical fitness and longterm health requires a regular dedication. That if you don't use it, you lose it, when it comes to muscular strength, flexibility, coordination and mental acuity.
Well, you can think of your 5 senses, multiple subtle senses (clairs) and your imagination as the same! We must exercise these regularly... to maintain our full spectrum of awareness. To maintain and grow our sensitivities we must continually work with them.
We must remain human! Being human is working with our senses and imagination. Once these are 'taken' from us, we become desensitised, and we can lose access to so much of our potential.
Everyday... brush your teeth, drink fresh...
Many people come through Shaman College and share that firstly, their connection to spirits and nature reach all the way back to childhood and secondly, that somewhere along the way, they were asked to conform, ignore and forget their innate sensitivities.
You may find that this resonates with your history. That somewhere along the line of your life, you were encouraged to contain your light. Perhaps you were also uprooted from your groundedness of being? It turns out that your groundedness and your light are closely related.
We are brilliant, we have life-force within us. And we have potentials and capacity within us for a beautiful world. Humans have more power than we have been taught. I believe it is time that we all contribute to the recovery of this light, we need this, the Earth needs this, and all life needs this.
In this blog video, I invite you to look at your light. How do you connect with the higher frequencies that are running...
Every week, I go 'live' with a new Earth Prayers Meditation for our White Shell monthly members. And once in a while I just want to share this with our whole community.
In these meditations, we use our breath and our awareness to bless life, Earth, and all existence through our presence.
We merge with and become the love for this place. We discover and rediscover how much power and potential resides within us and through us.
In this particular meditation, we become the currents of the water flowing on the Earth and in our bodies, we receive and absorb the healing energy of the Sun and let it fill us up. As a full vessel of light... this emits from us... and the currents reach the shores of this existence.
Thank you being,
This is inspired by both personal and professional work that I have done with the "light body" and also shares some insight into the topic that we cover in our new course, Shamanic Pathways for Yoga at Shaman College.
This is such a beautiful and powerful yet simple practice, that shifts your reference point from a physical, solid form to an energetic body of light.
What happens for you when you walk your light body? What does it feel like? What does the world look like from there? Who do you meet along your path? What messages come? What visions and visitations arise?
So often we trudge along in the illusion of being stuck in a form... yet our form is a reflection of our reference body of light.
Experiment with a playful invitation to your light body as you move through this world.
I know... it isn't the best advertisement for our college! But, it is true... this path is not for everyone. However, we have so many beautiful and powerful practitioners among us.
I am sharing this video blog and hoping that it is insightful and supportive for all of you.
Some of you may be currently feeling the 'push' and the challenge, or maybe you are wondering if this path is for you, or maybe you are actually wanting a training that is detailed, immersive and gradually deepening.
I feel that the shamans that are revealed here... see that their experience and the depth of their footsteps are an integral part of their power.
I do want to say something that didn't get shared in this video... and that is that these paths that you are on are sacred. Sometimes, the ways we do things at Shaman College do not fit you exactly. This is also OK. There are many schools and apprenticeships in shamanism - we are by no means alone. However, we do have...
... and the interrelationship of 'me' and 'we.
In this video, I share some insights about this movement from 'me' consciousness to 'we' consciousness and how important this is for both self-healing, healing others and assisting the whole planet.
One of the blessings of shamanic healing is the beautiful interrelationship of 'me' and 'we'. The healing that comes for each individual arises through the web of connections. This means that any individual healing both receives through the larger web and reciprocally contributes to the web of all life and all planes of existence.
Hello beautiful Shaman College community!
Today, I am sharing a little bit about where we are as we enter this 3rd year breathing as Shaman College.
As I look out from this vista point, I feel gratitude, wonder and also a sense of an unknown adventure ahead.
The main message, I have to share with you is ... THANK YOU and also, WE ARE HERE FOR YOU.
Please feel you can reach out at anytime, we are here to assist and support you on your path and to help rekindle any fires that you may feel have dampened. This is why we are here. We know you carry light, wisdom, and strength... and that you are needed here at this time.
This week's blog is a guided meditation offering for you!
And follows perhaps on the momentum and reports that many have shared with me over the last few weeks about an increase in synchronous events.
Some maps in the past have gone from perhaps a 'flat-world' to a round world... but the maps that we can access are multi-dimensional.
We are a part of a divine fabric of connections through the cardinal 4 directions, through up and down, through inwards and outwards, through all time, through portals, inversions, frequencies, spirals of light and more.
When you are ready to sit with this guidance, prepare your space and find a comfortable place to sit. It is 20 minutes long... you may want to use headphones as there is a beautiful alpha music track behind the voice.
Thank you, as we all invite these infinite connections and directions - to guide us and support us.
Every week for over a year, I have led a new Earth Prayers meditation and shared it live through FaceBook, YouTube and lately through our Podcast channel.
These have been beautiful to offer. However, sometimes, I wonder... 'oh should I go live today?' or ' is this really received and needed?!' But nonetheless, I show up... and offer these out to anyone who is there to join and receive.
This has been an amazing process of dedication and offering. I never know exactly what is going to come out... but spirit always moves through and guides us. Any doubt is relieved and the heart is expanded with you.
I am deeply grateful to all of you who have joined in at anytime in these meditations and blessings. Thank you so very much.
At this point, I am moving the regular Earth Prayers over to Zoom on our new membership site. This way, we can also see each other and share and experience community even more. The membership also includes weekly White...
The treatment mindset that exists widely in our cultures today involves fixing, solving and curing. And in this approach has often forgotten the life-force itself. As if the power and strength in healing is determined by the 'great' minds to solve.
In shamanism we invite life in all of its cycles to reveal itself. We invite assistance and spiritual guidance to come and help with the surfacing of this power and potential that exists in life at its very essence.
As contemporary shamans and practitioners, we must be aware of the paradigms of our 'treatment' world. We must remember the power in the posture of invitation. Many times clients will come to you wanting treatment, wanting to be healed and fixed. And you may be able to help them... yet, not in the way that ignores the power in their own life force.
Let us remember to "Invite Life".
