by Julie Hoyle

I would be standing on the shoreline looking out at the ocean, watching in trepidation as a huge, dark tornado was forming. Growing in power and strength, the entire sky would blacken, the wind would grow in intensity and the sand beneath my feet would vibrate...

 

Editor's Note: I have also occasionally chosen unwisely not to listen to the Spirits and every time, there was Hell to pay. It has been quite awhile since then and life has been much easier. Shamanism is about relationships, your relationship with your loving and compassionate teachers. The more you practice the easier it becomes to "know' the voice inside.


Shamanism


 

Editor's Note: Shamanic practitioner and teacher Gerry Starnes, explains in a very clear way, the fundamental concepts of the shamanic journey practice.

 

Shamanism


by Susan Mokelke

I am often asked if there is an article that explains what core shamanism is and how it can be used in everyday life. This article is intended as an introduction to the subject, with references to sources on the Foundation for Shamanic Studies website and to the work of Michael Harner, who originated, researched, and developed it. His classic book, The Way of the Shaman, remains the premiere text on contemporary shamanism...

 

 

Shamanism


by Elen Sentier

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...

 

Shamanism


by Tasara

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...

 

Shamanism


by Franco Santoro

The term trance comes from the Latin transire, which means “to go over” or to move from one state to another. Although this word is often popularly associated with unusual states of mind or altered states of consciousness, its implied conditions play a vital role for all human beings and extend in all areas of life...

 

Shamanism

My eyes graze the misty sky,


While horizons plan only for tomorrow.


My lips murmur a song, to the spirit of Atlantis, and I fly...

 

 

Shamanism

Cross-posted from www.Care2.com

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.

Editor's Note: This is so meaningful in today's world as sacred rituals in America often go by the wayside.

 

Shamanism


by The International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers

The International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers was set in motion by a common vision, a prophecy seeded decades ago in many people around the world. One of these seeds was planted in Jyoti, and in Ann Rosencranz, of the Center for Sacred Studies. In this vision, the Divine Mother appeared and offered Jyoti a basket with five precious jewels. As she handed it to Jyoti she said, “Take my basket, tend to these precious jewels, do not mix them and do not change them, each jewel represents a line of prayer that goes back to original times...

 

Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: I attended a gathering at a friend's home to meet Grandmother Pauline Tangiora, an Ambassador for the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. Grandmother Pauline, is Maori elder from the Rongomaiwhine Tribe, and like the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, is an emissary of peace, balance and respect for the Earth and all people. She introduced me to this council of elders, their work and mission, all of which is so deeply rooted in love which has truly inspired me.

 

Shamanism


by Tom Pinkson, PhD

Many years ago I was fortunate to have a visionary experience that serves as a guiding light as I move through my late sixties with seventy just around the bend. Sitting in silent meditation, eyes closed, I noticed soft rainbow lights beginning to flash on and off beneath my eyelids.  I watched them dance and dart until suddenly they coalesced into the image of a beating heart. I knew immediately that it was my heart...

 

Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan:  I love the title of Tom Pinkson's book, Fruitful Aging. It reminds me life bears fruit throughout our lives. Knowing that Tom has pursued a life of service, deeply rooted in the Shamanic tradition, I was thrilled when he agreed to provide ATH with an article on the inspiration behind his book and the wisdom gained from his open, honoring approach to life.

 

Shamanism


by Adele Ryan McDowell, PhD

Picture this: A row of attached homes, and like a ribbon being blown in the wind, they dip and wave on the crested hills of a seaside town in the UK. The neighborhood has a lovely, soft, comfortable feel to it. You watch kids riding their bikes, dogs being walked and people returning from the market...

 

Editor's Note: I tend to agree with Adele's comment about objects and power and the shaman. I feel it's a both situation. The practitioner will do well to create relationship with the sacred object.
