Now is the time to focus on your positive traits and make sure they are clear to all around you. The positive in you is your light, your presence and power. The intention in that power is what helps you manifest what you want in life. 

Mistakes you have made in the pats should not be repeated, whether it’s friendships, romantic relationships or work. Do not let yourself repeat what does not serve you or dulls your presence. If the thought of doing so brings anger, release it. Do not hurt the people or yourself who are dear to you.

The Crow requires we speak and practice truth in all things. This may mean correcting what is wrong in your life. Do not judge yourself. Truth is everything and your way forward from now. Do not dwell on whether you should act truthfully in a situation, just be truthful and do not let busy mind or ego persuade you otherwise. 

When things do not go as planned, it is the coyote at work. When plans do not work out or have to be changed suddenly, this is an opportunity for learning and growth in ourselves and other around us. What we learn from these happenings is intended to be for our highest good. The challenge is not to feel obstructed and downbeat, look up and learn and thank the universe for the lesson. The lesson maybe of faith, unexpected delays and detours ensure your intentions do not waiver. 

The detour maybe to make sure you are ready for the gift you have asked for. When that happens be ready to learn from the detour and your manifestations will be all the more beneficial for you.

The lunar cycle is 29.5 days. The moon disappears completely returning in several phases until it is shining brightly with reflected light from the sun. The moon does not spin on its axis it shows the same face, and hides the other.

Moon rules the high and low tides, and it affects our emotions and feelings, especially if we have been focusing on work, promotion, achievement. Now is the time to remove yourself from business and rethink of your path, and goals. Use the phases of the New Moon to the Full moon as a time of spiritual growth, do not to take on more burdens. Connect with others and engage with them, be open.

Your watch tells time, how much has passed and what remains of an hour, week, month, or year. We think of time as linear, from a starting point to an end. We think of our lives in the same way. There is a time in our lives when we say, there are more years behind me than I have in front as we anticipate our death getting closer. And yet, we do not know when our death will come. 

To break the linear quality of time we must concentrate on the Now. “Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the ‘now’ the primary focus of your life.” Eckhart Tolle.

When you follow the moment and are engaged with it, time will expand and you will receive what it is you need to be successful in the moment. Let go of busy mind and thoughts of manipulating time.

At the end of our life, our good and bad deeds are weighed and the nature of our rebirth is decided. One aspect of our karma is our ability to love to forgive, to venture and to risk. 

Did you embrace the gift of your life with enthusiasm? How much did you dare or risk in life? All who take risks do so without a guarantee of success. Do you accept risk without that guarantee, if so, why not? Is your busy ego telling you, you are not good enough, why do you believe it? How much opportunity in your life has passed by because you did not risk?  

Look back on your life and evaluate the risk and success you had when you did risk and use it to quiet your busy mind and take a risk, and then another.

The Curse is part of your karma. In a past life you may have experienced loss, pain, or anguish. Release those feelings, thoughts, or beliefs so that you can have a happy life without those past life blocks. Sit quietly and consider the following. Replace xxx with whatever is to be released. Repeat it three times before you go to bed tonight.

‘I renounce my vow/past life of xxx! 

IN THIS life I am free to gain materially, spiritually and emotionally.
IN THIS life I am aligned to receive great amounts of abundance of wealth, love and to give forgiveness  

IN THIS life I am wealthy, happy and free of any and all karma that may have been holding me back. 

With this energy, I go forward!’ 

The Practical Shaman – Reincarnation

The Practical Shaman - reincarnation book cover

Shamanism is the oldest religion on the planet! 

In terms of human existence, it predates current day organized religions by tens of thousands of years. European cave paintings and carvings showing a shaman date from the Paleolithic era. Graves of shaman 12,000-year-old and older have been discovered in Israel and the Czech Republic.

Shamans have played an essential role in the defense of the psychic integrity of their community for thousands of years. Shaman are pre-eminently the antidemonic champions; they combat demons and disease, but also black magicians… In a general way, it can be said that shamanism defends life, health, fertility [and] the world of ‘light’, against death, diseases, sterility, disaster and the world of ‘darkness’… What is fundamental and universal is the shamans struggle against what we could call the ‘powers of evil. Shamans are not only able to foresee the future, but can change the outcome. As an example, shamans can find out where food or game is located for the community, or averting threats to the community. This is a vital difference between shamanism and clairvoyance.[1]

This book is part of The Practical Shaman series, books 1 and 2 are broad introductions into shamans and shamanism. This book concentrates on reincarnation and the beliefs and rituals that surround the soul. This book is connected to The Shaman Podcast – Episode 2, Reincarnation.

Today we are talking about: Reincarnation

Reincarnation is the philosophical or religious concept that the non-physical essence of a living being, its soul or Spirit starts a new life in a different physical form or body after biological death. It is also called rebirth, transmigration or metempsychosis.

Reincarnation is a central tenet of the main Indian religions; Jainism, Buddhism, Sikhism and Hinduism. Some Hindu groups that do not believe in reincarnation, instead they believe in an afterlife.

It is found in many streams of orthodox Judaism as well as some North American Natives and some Native Australians. 

Historic Greek figures, such as Pythagoras, Socrates, and Plato all believed in and wrote about reincarnation.

The Celts and Druids had a central core belief that the soul does not die. After death it passes from one body into another… the main object for this is education. The soul learns or relearns about existence from one life to another but itself is indestructible. 

Taoist beliefs as far back as the Han Dynasty 206BC – 220AD describe reincarnation as “Birth is not a beginning; death is not an end. There is existence without limitation; there is continuity without a starting-point.”

The majority of the major sects in Christianity and Islam do not believe in reincarnation, but some such as the Cathars, Alawites, Druze, and the Rosicrucian’s do. 

It is the doctrine of salvation in Christianity that prevents belief in reincarnation. Islam believes in a linear life at the end of which a person is judged and sent either to Hell or Heaven. On judgement day all are resurrected. 

Personally, I think of my body as a container, a container in which my soul exists and is able to experience the physical world. Through each life time, my soul learns lessons about existence and balances its Karma, and in so doing, it becomes enlightened. When it achieves enlightenment, it breaks free of this plain of existence and has a choice to move on, or, continue but on its terms. When a particular spirit is so moved by compassion and love for those of us still in the throes of birthing pains again and again, it comes back to teach and heal.

The intermediate or transitional state between death and reincarnation is known as the Bardo in Buddhism. It is in this state that Near-Death Experiences [NDE] are recorded.

It is at this time, after death and before rebirth that the shaman plays his/her most important role. 

A soul or spirit may not immediately be reincarnated to the next physical form. The soul may not accept the death of their physical body, which may have ended because of an accident, sudden illness or even violence. The soul may linger in the current world as a non-physical essence and attach themselves to a physical person such as a loved one or a completely unrelated individual. This may hurt or damage the physical person they have attached to. Damage manifests as illness.

Shamans operate primarily within the spiritual world, which they believe affects the human world. A Shaman healing the soul or spirit of a living person restores their physical body to balance and wholeness. 

In so doing, the Shaman encounters the source of the sickness, the attached soul that has not passed over to be reincarnated and guides it to the spirit world where it can manifest into a new physical being, healed and capable of continuing on their journey.

In other situations, relatives may engage a shaman to seek out the soul of the deceased and help it cross over and reincarnate normally.

I hope this podcast has been informative and interesting. Please, subscribe to the Podcast so receive future episodes, and check out our other materials to help in understanding Shamanism, Reiki and energy healing.

I look forward to seeing you in the next Episode.Bye for now.
