What a ride we are all on in these sped up times of monumental change! I have decided to out myself a bit more and publish a blog about my work with earth energies. So what exactly is "Everyday Shamanism" you ask? I have to say that I would like to de-mystify the whole shamanistic thing, but that would really be missing the point. The whole point is to dive into the mystery! We all have this inherent ability to connect with nature and nature spirits. We have only forgotten how. My first suggestion would be to follow a very young child around and watch and listen to how they connect with everything... singing, talking, touching and sending gratitude and joy. Find the place within your self that still remembers what that is like. When I was young, I had very few friends my age to play with, given where I lived. My friends became the trees, the wind, little salamanders, butterflies, moss and creatures of the forest. We had the most amazing adventures together! I have never lost the gratitude for that deep connection. I could see the weakening of the systems of the forest as people turned away from growing their own food and connecting with nature, some even finding nature a nuisance! So, what does all of this have to do with Everyday Shamanism? Well, my dear friends, nature is exactly where we must turn to heal ourselves. It is in nature that we learn our own fears, our own beliefs about ourselves and the world around us. Believe it or not, nature is a storehouse of the energy of our ancestors, solar energy, and the energy of the stars! The more we connect, the more we begin to see not only with our eyes but with our inner vision and soul!
