It seems people are interested and the question they have been asking is: What is a Shamanic Journey?
Before I can describe to you what a Shamanic Journey is I must give insight into what a Shaman is or more so what the Shamanic Life is about.
Being a Shaman is not something you wake up one day and say, yup, that’s what I want to be when I grown up. It wasn’t on the list of my careers I would have chosen 30 years ago and until about the last year or so wasn’t something that came up. You could say I was drawn to it, or it was drawn to me. It’s more of a calling or purpose in life. We all have one and some hear it very early on in life and some like me get it a bit later. I would say if I hadn’t had all the life experiences I have had, this wouldn’t be my calling. Looking back, I am thankful for all those experiences as they have brought me here, to this path in my life.
So, what is a shamanic way of life?
Nowadays, in non-indigenous cultures, shamanism is studied and practiced as a life path. Following a shamanistic perspective, individuals seek to be in relationship with the spirit in all things. They seek to use information and guidance from non-ordinary reality to intentionally form their own life experience.
In short, we listen to nature, we connect with the world around us and live in a way that is true to ourselves. We live in harmony with all that surrounds us.
Here is the Wikipedia Definition: Shamanism is a religious practice that involves a practitioner who is believed to interact with a spirit world through altered states of consciousness, such as trance. The goal of this is usually to direct these spirits or spiritual energies into the physical world, for healing, divination or another purpose.
Beliefs and practices categorized as “shamanic” have attracted the interest of scholars from a variety of disciplines, including anthropologists, archaeologists, historians, religious studies scholars, philosophers, and psychologists. Hundreds of books and academic papers on the subject have been produced, with a peer-reviewed academic journal being devoted to the study of shamanism.
What’s a Shaman?
A Shaman: A person regarded as having access to, and influence in, the world of good and evil spirits, especially among some peoples of northern Asia and North America. Typically, such people enter a trance state during a ritual, and practice divination and healing.
Anyone can live a Shamanic Life but not everyone will not be a Shaman.
So, the question that I have been getting over and over is:
What is a Shamanic Journey? & How Can It Help YOU?
The Shamanic journey involves traveling within oneself for the purpose of insight. This is a profound way to conduct an internal conversation and to receive important information. This inner being is in constant contact with all levels of our consciousness. The Shamanic Journey believes that once within, a person will find the answers to all their questions, good and bad. During the journey, a person goes beyond their own awareness. Oftentimes people will describe seeing various lights, and these can be interpreted in different ways. Many people experience a change in body temperature or a shift of movement. Others will see visions of this life or a past life. The experience is unique unto itself and may provide insights that are unexpected and revealing.
You have questions & what you don’t know is that YOU also have the answers. I guide you into that journey and help you find what you are looking for.
