by John Brennan

The oversoul is a pure and personal link to the spirit world which comes to us as we take our first breath, and leaves us when we take our last. If our three souls (body soul, mind soul, and oversoul) are out of balance, then our thinking and actions are also out of balance...

 

 

 

Shamanism


by Franco Santoro

A typical trait of our ordinary reality is to function as a separate arbitrary configuration. This sort of configuration holds fixed edges preventing free circulation of energy. As a result the limited amount of energy available inside this separate reality is all we can apparently rely on. On the other hand, from a multidimensional perspective, energy existing in this and other universes is basically infinite, and it is only the human separate paradigm itself that inhibits us from accessing it...

 

Editor's Note: I have grown up with astrology and have realized over the years how powerful a tool this is in assisting your life. This is an interesting perspective I've not seen before. Enjoy!

 

Shamanism


by Gretchen Crilly McKay

I am a sangoma. What does this mean? A sangoma is an African traditional healer who merges with her ancestors for the purpose of healing. It is a spiritual calling, not a chosen profession. An apprentice sangoma, called a thwasa, studies with a mentor for approximately two years and must learn how to prepare herbal medicines (muti), how to interpret dreams, how to incorporate spirits, how to diagnose illness through divination with bones, and how to heal both physical and spiritual illness...


Editor's Note: Having personally had the privilege of working with Gretchen in the past, I can attest to her amazing abilities and skills as a shamanic healer trained in the African heritage.

 

Shamanism


by Tom Pinkson, PhD

We all have choice about how we hold painful events from our past in our mind. Denial, distraction, repression, and projection are unskillful energy-draining ways of dealing with pain...

 

Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: This is an excerpt from Tom Pinkson's book, Fruitful Aging, a richly inspired guide for creating a vibrant, conscious and loving life. Tom shares some easy to apply exercises to remove the layers obscuring the authentic self.

 

Shamanism


by Tom Pinkson, PhD

I recently had the opportunity to attend a Conscious Elders Gathering at which I led a team of three, bringing spirit and ceremony into the work...

 

Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: I am particularly fond of the phrase 'the only way out is through.' Tom Pinkson's recounting of a recent gathering of Conscious Elders in Northern California inspired me to wonder if the creation of these pods is one of the essential steps we need to face global challenges. I hope the seeds of this movement take root. Graciously, Tom outlines the basic tenets for like-minded, conscious elders to come together and form a community to affect change.

 

Shamanism


by Michael Watson

We are initiated many times in our lives. First loves, school graduations, and marriages are initiations, as are illnesses, broken hearts, and job losses. Death may be seen as yet another initiation.

 

Thirty years I worked for three years with Dhyani Farmer (now Wyahoo) and Louise Sunfeather. I had landed in Vermont, after fleeing the pollution and arrogance of Washington, D.C.. Louise was working to integrate traditional Cherokee teachings and Western ideas about psychotherapy...

 

Shamanism


by Howard G. Charing

In traditional wisdom and knowledge, life is a continuum that does not end at the moment of death. One of the most important traditional tasks of the seer, shaman, medicine man or woman is to assist people who are either dying or the spirits of those who have died to make the transition into great domain of consciousness... 

  


Shamanism


 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Hank Wesselman recounts his first meeting with Hawaiian shaman Hale Makua, the wisdom he learned that day, and the relevancy of that wisdom to the current state of our world. In the metaphor he uses, we each have a bowl filled with varying amounts of light. Unfortunately, the men who predominantly rule this planet have very little light left in their bowls. We are all challenged to bring more light into our bowls and into our lives. See a related article here.

 

Shamanism

Whether you agree with American foreign policy or not, it’s difficult to imagine disagreement over the fact that soldiers returning from war should be given the best possible care to recover from physical and psychological injuries incurred in military service...

 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Shamanism is a broad practice of accessing knowledge and healing from non-physical intelligent sources - spirits. There are many ways to connect with spirits, and some use psycho-active substances - plant spirit medicine - to make the connection. This article presents one of those ways. I do not have direct knowledge of Iboga, but I do know that the traumas suffered by soldiers in war time are treatable by many forms of shamanic healing - with and without the ingestion of plant spirit medicine.

 

Shamanism


by Mackenzie Blyth

A lot of people pursue connections with spirit. Some are successful, some not. But for some who are successful, they sometimes get a lot more than they bargained for, and it turns out to be a nightmare.

There are also individuals who are not looking, and spirit comes to them. And it’s unwelcome, and it disturbs them. And in some cases it drives them to clinicians with drugs

"The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save...

 

 

 

 

 

Shamanism


by Wendy Halley

There once was a tiny seed that secretly lived in an old woman’s heart. For thousands of years the little seed slept, nestled in the darkness of the woman’s heart, until one day it felt a slight quiver deep inside its shell. The seed opened its eyes and whispered, “Spring is coming.” The old woman smiled...

 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: I know some men involved with shamanism, but really, this spiritual path/practice is dominated by women - like so many other awakening paths of the current spiritual renaissance. It feels to me that many more women are "waking up" to walk away from the small boxes they discover around their minds during the dark night of the soul. Wendy Halley is one of these.
