I offer these thoughts because in my life there exists a seamless continuity between my practice as a shaman and my work as a depth psychotherapist. What I write, in other words, is grounded primarily in my own experience and reflections upon it, and as such is an attempt to interface two fields which, again in my experience, share a great deal of common ground...

For ages on our planet conflicts around sex issues have been a major cause of sufferance, addiction and frustration. As we move into a path of rapid spiritual reawakening it is vital to acknowledge these wounds and strenuously promote ways to heal them...

Shamanism is a very practical spirituality. A modern-day shaman could live next door to you and the only clues you might have are that they get along well with people and animals and have a green thumb with plants. Also, shamans have a knack for putting people at ease and for saying and doing the right thing at the right time...

Celtic is often thought to be peculiarly Irish but this isn’t so. Clairvoyants in the early 20th century journeyed to find a migration from a beginning in what is now the Gobi desert, was then a sea, across Asia and through Europe. Mary Renault tells the story of Hyppolyita’s people, the Amazon folk, in The Bull from the Sea. The story is born out by the Takla Mummies found in the Gobi desert with Celtic/Caucasian DNA, plaids, long red hair and other Celtic attributes...
For some of us, the word prayer invokes feelings of power-under, being small while making entreaties to a god that is big and far, far away. Some of us might associate prayer with guilt, as in “I don’t pray enough” or more likely, “I am _(lazy, unenlightened, lame, etc)_ because I have not kept up with my spiritual practice.”
But there is no shame or blame in the spirit world that we choose to engage with in shamanism. There is only love...

It’s no secret that our poor planet and all her inhabitants are treading the currents of unpredictability in a big way these days. I think it’s also safe to say that we’re trying like hell to keep our collective heads above water. While pretty much every system on the planet has slipped into a state of chaos, our response seems to waver between “oh sh-t” and “what can we do to fix our insert appropriate system here (i.e., environment, economy, oil dependence, political unrest, etc.)?”

Over the past year or so, I have noticed an ever increasing tendency of people wanting to discuss with me, a very serious and “dark” subject. With greater and greater regularity, I find myself in heavy conversations with clients, friends, fellow “seekers” and even complete strangers on the topic of conspiracies. I can usually recognize when one of these discussions is coming. There will generally be a noticeable change in the behavior of the person who is broaching this content with me...

One morning when I was saying my morning prayers, a sacred ritual I do every morning before I get up and get going into the day, I caught the flutter of wings out of the corner of my eye and watched as all of the birds that had been feeding outside my bedroom window scattered...
Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: I am constantly reminded that I am supported in my life's work and in life in general. I love the wonderful reminder of this article that messages and guidance can show up in so many ways. For me, they are especially magical when embodied by an animal.
