Resistance and Assistance

Jul 14, 2020
 

This is a blog for those who are practicing shamanism for self-healing or for healing others.

At some point along the path, resistances are likely to arise.  Initiatory practices and journeys are the most obvious times, yet... any level, any circumstance, and anytime you may feel something that asks you to pause or provides a friction to your forward steps.

These may even become common within your work as you push beyond the boundaries and limitations of your mind and your ego.  You are likely being asked to drop more into your heart and surrender to the shamanism moving through you.

Here at Shaman College, as we mentor you, we will never ask you to do something that is beyond your ability, nor will we force you into any practice and never do we push you into those that may bring harm.  The challenges you feel are real... yet the safety that we practice here is also real.

Along with resistance, comes assistance. Honour what is happening and travel to your guides and...

Together - Divine Harmonics

Jul 07, 2020
 

This sharing is about relationship and harmonics.  It is about tuning in to the divine geometrics, vibrations, energetics and information that we know at a cellular level but that we can become blinded to by our cultural and collective consciousness.

This blog is about tuning ourselves with the assistance of the spirits, nature, and allies around us... to the frequencies from which the 'new' world can be seen and manifested.

Shamanic practice and the shamanic healers through all time of many different names, have been able to tune in to these frequencies, bridging the worlds.

Now, you are here... you are the bridge.  And you have spirit assistance.  We have each other as well.  Together, harmonics are created... you may think about how it takes the shaman, the client, the timing, the spirits and more to bring healing.  This allows our work to move beyond imagination.

BE with the Nature You Are

Jun 10, 2020
 

There is a ramping up all around us, of frequencies, forms, and energetics that do not align with us.  I am sure you can feel it.

This is not new, but it is louder.  And whenever the collective and the numbers of people tune in to this dis-harmonic frequency, it gets amplified.

So, as shamanic practitioners and people drawn to Earth-based spirituality and healing, we have a big role here.  Again, we always have had an important role here... it is just that it is our time, the era we live in is calling for us.

How can we help? How can we be of service?  First, we have to take care of our own energy. If we get caught up and taken under by this tide... we cannot be the change we know is possible.

This blog, is a reminder to keep up and do those simple put powerful foundation practices... cleansings, callings, and opening our hearts in nature.  These are here for our grounding and our soaring!  These basic practices allow us to be -  balancing and...

Generational Healing- A Personal Story

Jun 03, 2020
 

Sometimes the heart is cracked open, and while it hurts it also shows us what is there to be seen, to be healed, and to grow.  We are sensitive beings.... it is a part of our expression here.  

Everyone is needed in their wholeness.  And everyone can be the healing that is needed in this world. Many of us carry generational wounds, illness, scars, and blindness.

As living beings here today, seeing through the veil of separation to the Oneness, we can be a part of the global healing that is needed.  Our personal transformation is not only personal.  At some point along your journey- this realisation is seen.  And then, all healing whether it be 'self' healing or healing for 'others'... is actually healing for all.

Thank you for letting me share my own personal story here.  And I hope that it serves you in some way.  My message is to keep going!  To keep your shamanism alive.

With love to all beings,

and peace and safety to all,

Kimba

Pathways and Portals

Apr 27, 2020
 

Our pathways and portals are aspects of our journeying process.  These can be overlooked places... especially if people are over keen to jump into the other realms.  However, a powerful journey process rests upon these pathways and state changes that occur each time one wants to travel.

One of the skills we emphasise here at Shaman College, is a journey practice that begins with a clear intention while at the same time coming as empty as possible of ego and agenda.

The pathways and portals serve as emptying processes and become energetic requirements... each time serving as a sort of dismemberment/ rememberment process.

 

Video Transcription: 

With this video, I'd like to talk about our pathways and our portals, and I can't emphasize their importance enough.

You know, when we when we think of journeying and when we practice our journeying, whether it be for our own self healing or if it's because we are going to find out and work with healing energy for...

A Living Practice

Apr 20, 2020
 

Shamanism is alive today... and in each moment revealing itself to us. This week, Kimba shares an insight into this living practice we call shamanism and how it can be both ancient and also living... like an ancient tree with roots in the Earth but with fresh blossoms each Spring and new life receiving the wisdom for its own time.

Hello, this is Kimba. Welcome to our shaman college blog. And today I actually wanted to share with you something that I say a lot. And I seem to write it many times in email responses and mentoring of students here at Shaman College. And also when I speak about shamanism.

What it is, is that shamanism is a living practice. It's alive. Okay, so if you think about this a little bit...  if we set out to learn something, to study something, we are setting out to study, to practice, something that is always revealing itself. Always evolving, cycling, growing.

And so when you set out and when you give to this, you're not going in the way that you when...

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...
