|Come Walk With A Shaman|
The Shaman�s Journey
By Shaman Elder Maggie Wahls
Part One: The Shaman and Intent
Intent + Emotion + Knowledge = Shaman
There are 3 elements to being a Shaman: intent, emotional control and impeccable skills. Here we will look at intent.
"Intent is not a thought, or an object, or a wish. Intent is what can make a man succeed when his thoughts tell him that he is defeated. It operates in spite of the warrior�s indulgence. Intent is what makes him invulnerable. Intent is what sends a shaman through a wall, through space, to infinity." � Carlos Castaneda
Intent is the basis of manipulating this reality for anything including healing and manifestation. Reality is quite malleable really. It is just that we don�t use our will or intent to make it the best it could be.
Inflowing thoughts come to an end in those who are ever alert of mind, training themselves night and day, and ever intent on nirvana." - Buddha
Often we say we want something, but deep down in our hearts be really don�t want that. And then we cry out in anguish because we don�t have that �thing� in our lives.
Science is nothing but developed perception, interpreted intent, common sense rounded out and minutely articulated." � George Santayana
Our reality is completely and entirely based upon our
intent. You say, How can that be? I did not create this world, this
country or this house. But you do accept the intentions given to you by
your parents, your relatives, your school, your community, and your
society. We have been taught as babies to accept the realities of
others for generations. This is simple psychosociology 101. We are even
taught to fear anything but these realities and so life changes at a
very slow pace indeed!
So yes, you aligned your intent for housing to that of your relatives. Your idea of social success is the same intention as your society at large. This is not necessarily a bad thing! But it shows the power of intent. One more example is the phrase we hear �If it is not good for me or meant to be then God will not give it to me.� I think this is probably a good intent to inherit because you intend only good things for yourself this way. Without intending only good things in some way, you would have to assume responsibility for all the bad things that happen to as well. Get my drift? You are responsible.
It is a sign of considerable advance when a man begins to be moved by the will, by his own energy self-determined, instead of being moved by desire, i.e. by a response to an external attraction or repulsion� Annie Besant, The Ancient Wisdom.
So how do we bring more good things into our lives?
By intending only good things. Dwell only on good things. Whenever you think a negative thought, immediately replace it with a good intention. Picture abundance in your life. Practice looking for goodness around you. Intent creates your reality-what are you intending for yourself? For others? You know the phrase, �Be careful what you wish for, you might just get it� I guarantee you will get what you really wish for.
First, you must be in touch with your real wishes, not just your fantasies. You real wishes are the ones with emotional buttons on them. The wishes that make you cry or scare you enough to make you cringe, or bring a huge smile across your face just thinking about them. They are buried deep inside and sometimes are really echoes of other people�s intentions for you. If your father intended for you to be a doctor but you didn�t want to do that, you may still walk through your life without a purpose because you accepted your father�s intent for you all along. This is the stuff counseling is made of.
But for a Shaman, it is using intent properly now that can heal issues of soul loss like that for others. All healing begins with intent. Unless the patient himself intends to get well, the reality will be his own intent of illness.
This knowledge can be very frustrating to the healer who knows that complete healing is just a change of mind away. But intent is free will and no one has the right to usurp another�s free will. Many times I have wept bitterly before the campfire for those people who chose to suffer rather than to heal. There is only one reason for the intent to not heal and that is fear.
Isn�t it odd that people fear change more that anything else in life? And yet, that is the one thing that is guaranteed with your passage! I invite you all to embrace change. Embrace each new day, each gray hair, each meal, each encounter, and each tiny adventure of every day. Learn to enjoy the most natural thing in life � change. And learn to use it to your advantage.
I offer a course in Shamanism that brings people to re-member their own skills and talents, natural abilities. There are a lot of women walking around suffering mental and physical symptoms of this disjointment and I want everyone to feel whole. So my mission is to reconnect people with their own inner powers and being.
My course starts very simply at the beginning and gives you concrete background for what Shamansim is and then takes you through simple rituals and practices that you will actually re-member doing at an earlier time or in another reality. With those remembrances you begin to recapture the skills you already have. I am here throughout the experience to guide you and to interpret for you whatever you are experiencing.
As the course progresses, your questions become more personalized to you and your history and you rediscover your old ways, your old totems and allies will again appear to you and be ready to work with you if you so choose. We end the course with 3 guided meditations or journeys that connect you to your timeless source. They cement that bond and repair any rifts or cracks in your being that have been manifested as physical, mental, or spiritual illness.
The most difficult part of the course is having the bravery to walk this path again in this lifetime. We all intrinsically know the power it involves and the strength we must possess to live the life. But we DO have the strength inside us. The gift comes with the resource. The drinking fountain comes with the water. We are not given a drinking fountain and then told to supply our own water!
So if you have the courage to step up and re-member who you really are, the rest will open up to you again in this course.
