‘Call of 13 Shamans’
Stunning pictures as shamans from around the world gather in Sayan Mountains.
A shaman, in the dictionary definition, is ‘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 practise divination and healing.’
These images – giving an extraordinary glimpse inside this largely unknown world – have emerged of a conclave held this summer over nine days near the village Khorum-Dag in Tyva Republic.
This festival, named ‘Call of 13 Shamans’ was held in an area of Siberia that retains great respect for shamans and was intended as a show of unity by the planet’s most respected practitioners.
Anna Breytenbach, a very talented animal communicator, is remarkable in several aspects. Of course it is very wonderful to be able to communicate with our animal companions on this planet so as to be better able to meet our common challenges or for us to assist animals in human environments that are in distress. I see the great significance of this kind of direct connection with the animal world also, as Anna and others in the video mention, in that more and more humans are beginning to acknowledge that the Natural world is actually our home. I know that I am feeling greatly nourished on the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual levels of my being since my direct, visceral connection to Nature began to intensify over the course of the last year. I am sure you will enjoy this video! Continue reading →
This past Thursday I enjoyed a massage (an early Christmas present from my wife) by a very gifted therapist. She is adept at moving energy in my body in a very deep way. During the session I had a transcendental and transformative experience. Immediately after the session I put down as much as I could in words. Here it is:
The Universe in Person
Stars joined in the fiery union of cosmic intercourse
Their tremendous energies intermingling and embracing each other.
Out of the immensity of this explosion of joy many new celestial bodies were born, one of them Terra.
So much churning and flexing – spouting eruptions as it grew and took shape
Vast and deep oceans, massive mighty peaks, pulsating life in jungles and streams: the stage was set.
Much of my journey in the last 10 years is underlined by Eckhart Tolle’s wonderful book “The New Earth”. His clear message, untainted by any particular wisdom tradition, has been a touchstone for me since the first time I read it and it has accompanied me throughout the years. It is valid still today as a view of how Humanity can live its full potential in a peaceful, loving world. Continue reading →
Since my trip with my wife down to Tehachapi, California and meeting up with the OPAL Tour of the One People much has changed in my life. Simultaneously with these happenings I was introduced into the very deeply enlightening and inspiring body of knowledge coming from Seth through Jane Roberts. In particular I am delving into “The Nature of Personal Reality: A Seth Book” and it is opening up to me a view of what I would say “Integral Reality”. So many pieces of all the wisdom traditions that I have been following for decades are falling into place for me through this meditative and inter-active course of study based on this work. I intend to post more on this subject shortly to allow those of you who might be so inclined to take a look yourself.
Today I am introducing another very wonderful “practice” that we became aware of just recently: Earthing. The movie “Grounded” is a documentary about Earthing, which is basically connecting to the Earth’s surface directly by standing on your front lawn barefoot or in other ways having skin contact with the Earth. It also involves ways of connecting your sleeping and living area directly to the Earth and the effects that can have on your health and general well-being. I find as well the spiritual significance of increasing my conscious awareness viscerally with the great living Being who birthed us all, Mother Gaia.
This is the film info from the YouTube description:
“Grounded” is an independent feature film about what many authorities consider “The Greatest Health RE-discovery of all Time”. The concept was tested on the people of Haines, Alaska, population 1,700. The movie makes its premiere to mainstream audiences theatrically in January 2014. The full film CAN be viewed NOW, as a pay per view at the Intuition Physician or Kroschel Films website.
My wife and I have been out on our lawn and taking extended walks barefoot on the beach and both of us have clearly reduced pains and discomfort in joints that had been bothering us. I also go out onto the lawn barefoot when I awake with restless legs and that restlessness/quasi-pain subsides completely.
