Shamanism, where does it come from? What does it mean, and is it effective? All questions roused by the appearance this ancient form of healing is making in western culture. Archaeological evidence estimates shamanism to be about 30,000 years old or more.
With the first quarter of 2009 nearly at completion, we find ourselves faced with the recognition that our lives are changing. Each of us has experienced some degree of personal chaos perhaps in the form of career or relationship issues. Or does of sense of peace get unsettled by the media reminders that our financial structures are changing, our Earth’s eco-systems are injured and our global safety is seeking stability.
As humanity sails into the power-enriched storm of shift are we ready to brace the mighty wind of awakening that is calling to every soul on the planet? This single question brings forward the familiar call from our heart that compels us to keep moving forward regardless of the many outward expressions that seek to keep us stuck. That is, do we allow fear to provoke us into reactive decisions or do we use the winds of change to lift us to new perspectives?
Unconditional love. Consistent and abundant support. Undying loyalty. Unwavering patience. These are all things that we as humans seek out on some level whether consciously or subconsciously. These are things that “feed” us and keep us strong and moving in a forward progression with our lives. When one of these is missing, we find that we become “lost,” feel very alone, depressed, and even stagnant- each to varying degrees. The good news is these are not a reality; we as human beings were meant to believe. The bad news is that we get so caught up with the everyday challenges we face that we forget that we are truly very abundant in all of the areas above.

What is the SECRET to OBTAINING YOUR DESIRES, you ask? If you are asking any self-help or "road to success" writer, motivational speaker or empowerment guru, the answer will always include one vital process. Read ancient philosophical texts or religious writings, and the wisdom of getting what you desire would include that same ingredient: Build a clear VISION of the desired outcome or object. The use of visioning has, and has long been, a powerful tool for attracting information and the objects or state of mind and body you desire.
