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.

 

Shamanism


channeled by Sarah Finlay

As you are aware, the universal consciousness is shifting and opening - active participation in this is of utmost importance as you move forward. For many centuries, the materialistic perspective has been strongly held in place...

 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: This writing is channeled wisdom that came through Sarah from one of her compassionate Upper world spirit teachers. “Helen” is a spirit who is particularly connected to matters of the heart. She calls herself Pleiadian, meaning she is connected to the energies of those stars in some non-ordinary reality way.

 

Shamanism


by Llyn Roberts

As is true of sleeping dreams, ordinary reality is pliable. In the trance of life, time and space are not solid. For instance, the luminous blue and white orbs that hover through the rainforest at dusk defy conventional logic. These are known by indigenous people to be beings from other times, locations, even other planets. Shamanic balls of light freshly caught my attention in Siberia...


Editor's Note from Peter Clark:
The spirit world - what is often referred to as Non-Ordinary Reality - is outside of time and space. What that exactly means is not always clear. It is one thing to talk about it, but another to experience and understand it...

 

Shamanism


by Julie Hoyle

As a child, the veil between the dream state and other realms of existence was shimmering and transparent, becoming more so after a dramatic spiritual awakening in 1989. Saints from diverse paths and traditions entered dreams to give initiation and teachings and although I had never studied anything of the Shamanic path, Shamans suddenly appeared to lead me in unusual and elaborate rituals...

 

Shamanism


 

by Keith Varnum

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...

 

 

Shamanism


by Isa Gucciardi, PhD

Shamanism is the core spiritual and healing practice of most indigenous cultures. The Shaman serves as the medical, psychological, and spiritual counselor of these cultures. One of the primary responsibilities of the Shaman is to interface between the world of the seen and the unseen...


Editor's Note: This is a wonderful overview of the Shamanic Journey.

 

Shamanism


by Mackenzie Blyth

Rob was in a bit of a state when he fixed an appointment to see me. And what was so annoying, was that his suffering was completely avoidable.

It wasn’t his fault though...

 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: This article illustrates the importance of discernment and awareness. The choice of how we work with power has consequences. If we do so in a happenstance way, the results can be less than ideal. Spirits in the Middle World - the realm of the entire physical universe - are never guaranteed to be all "love and light." And when we engage with a non-compassionate spirit, the results can be troublesome at best, and catastrophic at worst. After reading this account by Mackenzie Blyth of the dangers of interactions with randomly available spirits, check out the recent piece on Shamanic Cosmology for further explanations.

 

Shamanism


by Aluna Joy

During a ceremony circle, atop a red rock vista in Sedona, Arizona with a group of old and new friends, I received a message about the birth of the new world and how the dimensions are now beginning to merge. Unfortunately we didn't record the message, so here I will do my best to recall what I received . . .

 

 

Shamanism


by Geoff Mercer

To ask how I became a shaman or learned my shamanic practice are reasonable questions, and commonly asked. However I cannot directly answer these questions as they do not in themselves allow for the reality of my shamanic experience...

 

Editor’s Note from Peter Clark: Geoff’s story is illustrative of several important facts. Firstly, shamanic practitioners can come from all walks of life. Secondly, the shamanic path invariably begins at birth… or before. Everyone has a shamanic ancestry however how close or distant. When someone is born with their shamanic eyes and ears turned on, that is a beautiful thing…

 

Shamanism


by Nicholas Breeze Wood

Padmasambhava, or Guru Rinpoche is considered to be the tantric Buddha who first brought Buddhism to Tibet, but to many shamans in the Himalayas he is considered to be the ‘first shaman’.

 

Whether seen from a Buddhist or shamanic viewpoint, Padmasambhava is a being who is able to manipulate reality and the beings who dwell in it in a very magical way, and there is no doubt that the teachings left by him have great power...

 

Editor's Note: In this article, Nicholas Breeze Wood gives us the story of Padmasambhava, or Guru Rinpoche, consideredto be the tantric Buddha who first brought Buddhism to Tibet.

 

Shamanism


by Sarah Finlay

The Wine Spirit is an ancient being who has been brought into ceremony and shared her knowledge and healing with people since pre-historic times.  (My sudden reflections on the significance of wine in the Christian sacraments began to take on a whole new meaning.)  My plant spirit guide, continued to explain that the mind altering medicinal plants might be seen on a hierarchical ladder…

 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Ever wonder why alcohol is referred to as “spirits”? One possible answer to that question is contained in this article written by Sarah Finlay. The shamanic worldview holds that all physical forms have associated spirit aspects. Some physical/spirit partnerships have stronger affect on us people than others. This article puts forward a fascinating theory about the spiritual effects of alcohol, and how our awareness and intention is vital to our health in conjunction with the ingestion of the physical/spirit substance.

 

Shamanism


 

by Fearn Lickfield

Reconnecting with the spirit of the earth is our deepest healing! Geomancy and the study of Earth Mysteries are returning as recognized and respected fields of knowledge and practice. As our world becomes less stable we turn back to what worked in the past. It is time we transition from a state of reaction and unconsciousness regarding our world, to deep awareness, love and partnership; co-creating with the Earth the vibrant, harmonious world of our dreams...
