Hello Dear Shaman College,
As I prepare for our upcoming course, Your Spirit Allies, I reflect upon the ability that we all have to "tune-in". As humans, light-beings, we have a powerful access to the vibrations and energetics of this Universe.
This ability is built into who and what we are. You are always tuning into something, and often times many things at once. Right now, as I write this, I am tuning into you... seeing you as an individual sovereign and unique being but I am also tuning into you as one of our Shaman College community members. This creates a lift in my energy... as I see our college, a group of heart-centred healers, shamanic practitioners, students, graduates, teachers and friends through the common ground of this earth and these stars, the drumbeat and the lineages through time.
It is important to recognise to what you are tuning your consciousness. Why is this? We impact the health of ourselves, of our world, and of the beings...
Hello Dear Shaman College,
In my practice, I often work with essential oils as well as the cleansing and guiding smoke from the plants and trees. This sharing comes from my time with the Pink Peppercorn oil and its connection to a very specific Pink Peppercorn Tree on the foothills of a pink mountain in Southern Spain.
As I sat here with the oil, I sat there in Spain... and the tree revealed to me a very sacred aspect of the soul. Our souls can reach through time and space. Our souls can sit in many safe and sacred places. This does not mean that they are 'separated' from the whole. This does not mean that the soul is fragmented. Just as your toe is not fragmented from your ear. They are connected and one with the body, with the whole. When an aspect of your soul sits in a peaceful spot across the Earth, it is not in any way separated from your breathing location.
The problems arise when a soul piece is resting in a place of trauma,...
Hello Dear Shaman College,
This is a topic that has arisen multiple times over the last couple of weeks... always a sign to me that it wants to be shared with our whole community.
There is a special ability that highly skilled shamanic healers share. It is the grounded recognition and nuances of the personal experience all the while being able to offer healing and divinations from the hollow-bone state.
As the hollow bone, you move through the realms with clarity. You are the witness, you are the carrier, you are the messenger and you also have a responsibility of safe practice for yourself and all beings. You move with the purity of light but also the sword of truth... and you are guided and working as a team with the benevolent and compassionate spirits.
As the hollow bone you will also see your human self... and as your human self, you will have all of the traits that we emotive humans have! We feel, we remember, we laugh, we cry, we hide, we shine.
Hello Dear Shaman College Community,
One of the qualities that so many of us share is the natural state of wanting to assist others. It as if we know deep in our bones that we are here to serve and to help, we know that we are here to heal and to sooth.
In this audio, I speak about the tidal flow of giving and receiving. I invite you to look at this breath rhythm as a teaching from Mother Ocean, and to discover for yourself how you are navigating within the balance of giving and receiving.
When you can explore giving and receiving and its nuances, you are invited into the natural flow of healing itself.
Thank you for your presence and your heart,
many blessings to all,
When we work with spiritual/physical/emotional healing for ourselves and for others, we are always in a state of inquiry.... in a state of discovery.
You never own healing, you never fully grasp it, you do not control it... yet you can rest into the hollow bone state and facilitate the connections that reveal the healing state within all beings.
In this birdsong morning contemplation, I share with you a look into what it can mean to be a "seeker" and how this is linked to intentions or agendas in shamanic healing.
There are multiple perspectives on what it means to be a seeker. I look into this as an inquiry and welcome you to look at your own relationship with the 'seeker'.
We also look at the energetics of intention in healing and its important difference to an agenda- led approach.
I hope this audio serves you and those around you,
Many Blessings to all,
In a place of marker points, of form and structure, of shapes and straight lines... there is another rhythm, a pulse, a breath, a flow and a dance.
I welcome you to approach healing work through this rhythm.
Many times in healing we are inviting a whole other perspective to the binding constructs. While an illness or challenge carries bindings, walls and barriers... we can introduce a breath that exists both within those constructs and also beyond the barriers.
This rhythm of life, of nature, of breath, and of ocean opens up realms of existence and expands the consciousness.
When we observe healing through the lens of natural rhythms, we can see where, when and how to assist in the transformation processes. Shamanic healing is ultimately an act of universal compassion through the channels of the hollow bone with the guidance of the helping spirits connecting us to the Wholeness itself.
Hello dear Shaman College Community,
Here is another teaching that comes from the mentorship... inspired by the students at Shaman College and their beautiful work.
Not everyone will 'get' this! But that is OK... I know I am not speaking to everyone but to you who are here on this shamanic path in some way. And I trust that the knowing in our bones will someday be widely understood and shared among our Descendants as this world is dreamed into a beautiful frequency of love and balance with Nature.
In shamanic healing, we are known as "seers"... we see healing into existence. It is through the seeing and the dreaming that this physical expression of health and vibrancy is manifested and retuned.... yes, also returned!
Because of the potency and power of seeing, we must be aware of what we are reading in this world. Are you reading what you see? Or are you reading what you are being told? We must be aware of what we are 'buying into', and how we are...
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.
