Becoming an Everyday Shaman

An Everyday Shaman

My current environment (living off grid on private property), has afforded me the opportunity to really, thoroughly, BE in nature.

My husband and I also live in an RV. We’ve lived in our 38 foot 5th wheel home for 10 years, as of this writing. Initially, we both worked outside the home, but now, we are both home all day, everyday. (I have been working from home for the last 3 years.)

I have had to be a hermit due to COVID-19 too.

An Everyday Shaman

So, here’s my little breakdown of what I have learned so far and why I am exploring Shamanism:

Bug bites

I don’t like being bitten by bugs: yellow flies, ants, or other. Do I know they have a right to be here? Yes. Do I know they are food for other creatures? Yes. But I am aggravated when my skin itches and feet, fingers, or toes swell up from the inflammation the bites have caused!

I take a moment and BREATHE.

I try new and different salves.

I make my own salves from Comfrey I have grown. Shamans are said to learn from plants and make nature-based medicines, like balms, tonics and tinctures, and salves, and are focused on documenting and sharing beliefs about herbal remedies for various maladies. Check!

And I am getting better at remembering to apply bug repellent (I have tried many different natural and botanical pest repellents), BEFORE I go outside. Even if I am only goinglring out for 5 minutes!

I have had to accept insects are on this planet for a reason. They do a lot of good!

In our garden, insects turn the soil. They attract birds and pollinators too, which enables our vegetables to grow. ☀️💦🌱

I say again, what you resist, persists!

Take another moment and BREATHE. Change your Energy. ❤️🦋🌀

Multi-Directional, Multi-Dimensional

Every morning for the last few years, I have been doing this shaman-like practice:

I fully bend at the waist and let my hands and arms hang to the floor. As I rise, I raise my hands to the sky and say, “Thank you for all the gifts and blessings (knowings) that I have received from the East” (and do this for each direction, north, south, east, and west while turning my body to stand facing each of those directions).

I thank God above, earth below, my past behind, my future ahead, and the cells of my body within. I thank my parents and ancestors and know ALL are WITH thee (my grandparents name was Withee, and this makes that statement personal for me). I know ALL is WELL. ❤️🦋🌀🙏😘

I then, consciously send LOVE out in all directions: north, east, south, west, above, below, forward, and behind. Unseen and seen. Past, present, and future. Indeed, in ALL directions for the benefit of ALL.

There is nothing to forgive, because there is value in Everything. And Everything Resolves to Gratitude. ❤️🙏

Unifying

Lately, I have mostly been getting my socializing online. And while I enjoy being online, some people tend to hide behind their keyboard and say things that are disempowering, unsupportive, judgmental, even unkind online that they wouldn’t tell me in person. And that saddens me.

Some of my “Love and Light” friends don’t act like they believe in unifying. They claim to believe in unity, but then they call me, or others names. Name calling is NOT unifying. There, I’ve said it.

And for Christians, one of the most used directives in the Bible is, “If my children,” “When my people,” and so on, do this or that.

God’s children, God’s people are called to be unifying, to serve, and to Love.

For more about this, read my previous article here.

So, yes, sometimes it is loving to leave someone, if you can’t manage to see another’s perspective and be open to growth and change, or muster the self control to be kind. ❤️🙏

What you resist persists

Will we get mad at certain things or people? Probably. But to live a wholly vibrant and fulfilling life, self control (starting with mastering your thoughts and emotions), is your work. Everyone has their own opinions. Let others be. Is it really your job to ruffle feathers?

Consider these quotes:

If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. 🦋

Ghandi

Remember, when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

Albert Einstein

Every feeling makes a subconscious impression. The dominant of two feelings is the one expressed.

Neville Goddard

Self control

Look at yourself. Are you perfect? And what is perfection about anyway? As I’ve written about before, expand your mind to find perfection in the imperfection.

Life’s an art more than it is a science. The need to be perfect is fear based. There is no perfection in Art.

Shine your light. No judging required. Have a little self control. Timing is Everything. I get that this is a matter of practice.

Conditional

By its very definition, Love is unconditional. You can’t say, “I love you” and then get mad when your loved one does something you do not like. That would mean you only like that person when they meet your conditions.

You are rarely loving anyone. You like people. You like animals. You don’t love people when they do or say things you don’t like or agree with. It’s a wonder anyone stays married anymore or has children. So much discord.

Try a little patience with those who think different than you. Love is a seed. Let it grow instead of rooting it out or stomping it to death.

You don’t know what’s best for everyone. Nor do you or I know everything. Honestly, none of us will ever know Everything.

Art of Allowing

Because I have had to find a way to actually live my beliefs with a husband who is “constantly under foot” and doesn’t always agree with me in thought, word, or deed (action and timing), I am so glad the Universe brought Law of Attraction and Art of Allowing into my life in 2008.

Now, I am really integrating everything I have learned into my life!

When I get stressed, I stand up, take some deep breaths, exercise, do some yoga or qigong, take a walk, or sing!

Growing living things

I have planted seeds and watched them sprout.

Too much rain washes them out of seeding containers or moves them out of the place where I put them in the garden.

Too little water and the plants die. I am hydrating myself more now too!

I love watching ferns sprout through the dirt and form a delicate spiral. I love ferns and never knew they did that until I walked through the forest enough times to observe them growing.

We all grow through the dirt. ❤️🦋🌀🙏☀️💦🌱

Sending love

The gratitude and love I feel and send is unconditional. I must send it to those I disagree with, as much or more than to those I agree with, otherwise I am not growing or expanding my consciousness.

I have broken down too. But, for now, I choose to bend as the willow. I choose to rise in growth. I choose to unplug from my phone and rest. I choose to turn, turn, turn. There is a season for ALL things.

Wrapping it up

I’ve written previously about some of my dreams and hypnosis sessions (similar to vision quests that Shamans do) to gain knowledge, direct revelations, and other dimensional guidance and healing.

I use breathwork, solitary time (to include prayer and meditation), fasting, singing, and chanting, like Shamans do. I enjoy drumming, but tend to do it only on my body, instead of an actual drum. I don’t use psychedelic substances, but can reach an altered state of consciousness by meditating.

I communicate with crystals, dirt, sky, stones, trees, and some animals. I know that I am a diviner, with an ability to bring healing to the planet by connecting Heaven and Earth.

Some shamans work with unseen elements within the subtle realms of sound frequencies and light (bodies of light and shadows). And while I know they are there, I am not bold enough to think for a moment that they work with me, though I am grateful for their help should they choose to intervene.

I embrace the ALL of what is wanted along with what is not wanted. The dark and the bright shining light that comes from mindfulness and accepting the sacred geometry within nature. There really is value in Everything.

Namaste. OM

Off Grid wet fun

Off Grid wet fun

While connecting with a fellow blogger, I accepted the challenge at http://travelwithintent.com/2020/09/06/wet/ of offering a themed post* about something “wet.”

At first, the only thing I could think of was to show you how we cool off while living “off grid.”

This is our little 3 feet deep off grid pool:

Our “off grid” pool.

And then, as I was preparing this to be a very short post, I remembered our pond! ❤️😉

Here’s our tilapia fish stocked pond:

Hubby and son at our tilapia stocked pond.

Far cry from these cool waterfalls in Scotland we saw last summer, but on a blazing Florida day, we’ll take it!

Waterfall in Scotland on our drive to Isle of Skye—July 2019.

Happy Labor Day weekend everyone!

*Debbie‘s blog. “Travel with intent” inspired this post. This Sunday’s one-word, “Wet” was the theme.

Mom, why did you bite your fingernails?

Mom, why did you bite your fingernails?

For as long as I can remember my mom bit her nails. And I always wondered why. She used to tell me it was “just a habit.”

My mother was a woman of strong faith, having been raised in a devoutly Christian home. She was also a deep thinker, earnest student, and hard worker. Mom’s parents never argued in front of their children either. So, what caused my mom to feel inferior (which can be a cause for such types of habits)?

As an aside: I picked up the habit from my mom and bit my nails for over 20 years. I had low self esteem as a teen, and often thought I had an inferiority complex!

Asking the question

Now, in my fifties, one morning (three years after my mom’s death), I sat in meditation and silently asked, “Mom, why did you bite your nails?”

The answer: “It was a way of hiding.”

And I got an image of how one hides a smile behind a hand, and when a man twists his mustache hair. I never had the thought before that one can hide behind their hand while biting one’s fingernails.

Hmmm, hiding? Hiding from what? I quickly retorted in thought.

Almost as soon as the first answer came, the second came. Hiding her soul.

How does one hide their soul?

Then, I was on a quest.

Why and how do we hide our soul? And is this a fight with our inner-being?

Are we reserved in behavior because we are afraid to let our innermost thoughts out?

Do we feel we will be judged?

Why would my mom have felt she would be judged? As especially in her youth, when presumably her nail biting started, she would have had no reason to fear judgment.

But, my mom was painfully shy. Always preferring to stay in the background. My mom preferred solitude to group gatherings—unless the gathering was in church (but even there, she didn’t like the spotlight).

Do we question our power?

One of the only times I saw my mom speak publicly, was when the church congregation was asked to share an individual testimony (of God showed up or intervened in their life).

I would listen to my mom’s personal testimony with awe, each and every time. And I had often wished my dad could have been there, at the prayer meeting, to hear mom’s words. Mom spoke with a gentle tone, but at the same time, a commanding authority. To me, this meant mom was speaking from a profound knowing. From a place of truth.

Are we afraid we can’t live up to the expectation of our soul?

As I searched the Internet on the subject of our soul, I found a series of quotes by author, Parker J. Palm. One of his quotes that caught my attention follows:

Parker J. Palm quote

As soon as I read Parkers quote, I realized he had also touched on the soul phrase given to me in the early 2000s that set me on my Awakening journey. The phrase, which became my mantra, We Are All Connected.

In summary

So far, the way I commune with my soul, and share what I find, (that aligns with the lessons I have learned by sitting with these questions), is the way I speak and share about the mantra, We Are All Connected. We Are Not Alone. And that we are more powerful than we can imagine.

Community means never losing the awareness that We Are All Connected.

Whether we feel less than, insecure, are shy, fearful, or that we may not express our truth in a clear way, we CAN speak and share from our soul, from our innermost truth. We simply need a courageous push or willingness to do so.

Perhaps we are old souls. But that is a question for another meditation. OM

How does it feel to want something?

How does it feel to want something?

In ALL of the Universe there is wanted and unwanted. It is the difference between order and chaos.

Chaos Theory

Some will say, Everything is random. And I know sometimes it seems to appear that way. But the random snowflakes that fall, each contain a unique design within, right?

And the leaves of the trees fall randomly, but only during certain seasons (or due to time and weather conditions). And look at the design of an individual leaf 🍁. Ah! Elegant design!

Order and structure

So, continue the process of observing nature. Is there not always a design present? My favorite example are seashells 🐚. The spiral is found often in nature, in small and large ways.

As I have written before, our Universe is magnetic. Magnetism is what creates order from disorder. Now, you may test that out by using magnets, but there is a whole science that proves this. It is called Physics.

How does it FEEL to want something?

Law of Attraction

You can deny the Law of Attraction all you want, but that’s about as senseless as denying gravity. It exists. You just haven’t learned how it operates.

Put two magnets together one way, and then the other and you will quickly see that in one direction they click together and in the other direction they push apart. It really is observable magic if you ask me! And I have been fascinated by magnets since I was a young child.

Simply stated, that push or pull, is why you feel a certain way about any particular person, place, thing, or situation. Your body is made up of minerals, water, earth stuff. And the same way magnetism works in the big ways, it works within a human body too!

So, when you want something, it’s typically because you don’t have it. You want a rose because you don’t have one in your experience and you enjoy the look, the feel, and scent of roses. If you got mad because you didn’t have a rose nearby it would seem silly to shout until one showed up, wouldn’t it?

But, when you look at something not wanted (like not wanting a certain person to be in charge of an environment), and you shout no at it, you are emphasizing that person’s presence in that environment and your experience—in the case of a President, that person remains in everyone’s collective experience). The more upset you get, even angry, about that person being in charge, the more you stay in “resistance.” And when many people hold that same energetic stance (or vibrational discord), the more reason that person (or someone like him), stays in power.

There’s no such thing as “no” in this Vibrational Universe. Everything is “yes”. So when you look at something wanted and you shout yes at it, you are including something wanted in your vibration. But when you look at something not wanted and you shout no at it, you are including something not wanted in your vibration. And that, right there, is the basis of all resistance. Looking at unwanted things and saying, “No, no, no, no, I want not that,” is the very thing that holds you in vibrational discord with that which you do want.

https://spiritlibrary.com/abraham-hicks/limiting-beliefs-and-the-art-of-allowing

In conclusion

Love is said to be the answer to many things, because the attitude of Love feels good. And the longer you feel upset, mad, angry, hurt, and so on, the more stress you put upon the cells of your body. And THAT never feels good.

Conspiracy theories

Conspiracy theories

So, just what is all the interest in conspiracy theories?

Why can’t governments and authoritarian agencies be up front and open about things that affect us ALL?

Transparency cures conspiracy

I’ve told people for years that if the “powers that be” would just be more transparent in their dealings, there would be no need for conspiracy theories, indeed they would not exist.

But people are smart. People who are deep thinkers will always be peeking in the shadows, poking around, and probing for answers, especially when certain things, “don’t add up.”

Compartmentalization

The military, the government, corporate entities, churches, ALL organized institutions compartmentalize. Why?

It is often said, “The right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing” in regard to these organizations. And that is all due to compartmentalization.

Shhh…

Think about all those levels of government clearances. Why is there a need for multiple different levels of clearance? There are many levels—even levels above Top Secret.

Do you want to know a secret?

It seems everybody wants to know a secret. The Beatles even had a top-selling song about a secret. And of course there was a mega hit book and movie called, The Secret.

People love secrets

What’s the fascination with secrets? What is so attractive about keeping and figuring out secrets? Why is it human nature to want to hold some kind of knowledge over others’ heads? Power? Control? Ego? Ugh!

If there were no secrets, there would be no conspiracies!

Is transparency or secrecy a pillar of Freedom?

What they don’t tell you about Lifetime guarantees

Lifetime guarantees

This may be one of my shortest blog articles. But that’s part of the point.

When you see or hear the marketing message on a product that it is “guaranteed for life,” or for a service that you can “use it for life,” there is an assumption built into that promise.

Lifetime guarantee?

The grand assumption

The assumption we make when we fall for that “lifetime guarantee,” is that the product will last for the rest of our life, or that we can use the service for the rest of our life.

But the reality is that the “life” that the product or service is guaranteed for is the “life” of the company—it is not for our life, not for the life of the buyer.

When the company goes out of business

When the company shuts its doors forever, the lifetime guarantee (or length of service you thought you bought), vanishes. Poof!

Think about it. And don’t fall for their misleading marketing tactic ever again. ❤️🦋🌀

Don’t blame, reframe!

Don’t blame, reframe!

Whenever you are ready to blame someone for hurting you, take a breath, take a walk, or sit with the situation for awhile before reacting.

Reframe the event several times to see if you can find where you played a role.

When I have allowed myself to get upset over something, I have found that if I can have a few minutes to an hour alone, without someone taking my side right away, I can usually turn things around in my head and get out of blame. And it feels better to me when I can manage to stop blaming another—and not see myself as the victim.

How to step out of blame

  • Breathe
  • Take a few moments to change your state
  • Take a walk or change your environment
  • Consider the situation from another’s viewpoint
  • Do something else for a bit
  • If possible, message or call the person who caused your upset
  • Take a shower
  • Meditate or say a prayer (not just about the situation, but for all involved—including you
  • Sleep on it
Blue light butterfly 🦋

What can you learn from this?

Butterflies signify transformation because of the way they change during their metamorphosis. Try to see if you can find the lesson you can learn from the event you just experienced.

The person that caused your upset may have no idea they upset you. You may merely need a change of perspective. In nearly every case of upset I have experienced, I was too much in my own head about the situation and when I changed my environment (as in walking outside, watching a movie, jumping on a business call, or sleeping on it), I was able to thoroughly change my view of the event and release my hurt feelings.

Ego

Yes, usually our hurt feelings have something to do with our ego. When I’m upset, it’s usually because my ego was bruised in one way or another—even if only a tiny bit.

And I don’t even consider myself to have much of an ego, but apparently I do.

It won’t hurt me to let go of more ego either. When we can embrace humility, it can help us stand more confidently. We can accept that we have a lot to offer others, in service—whether we are praised or not.

When people talk bad about you

I know it feels painful when someone talks bad about you. But would you rather be right, or feel good? If we want to feel better, reframing the situation can help.

I have had these situations occur in my life. I don’t blame the people (because to do so would put me in victim mode), but I have used those episodes to help me make better choices.

I used to shake my head before walking away, but I don’t do that anymore—because even that is a waste of my energy. I say to myself, they just aren’t on the same wavelength as me. Sometimes I teach by sharing, but mostly I just let it go. ❤️🦋🌀😉

Sheila strives to ease loneliness through teaching and sharing group collectives, help those exiting toxic relationships, and while reminding us ALL that we are stronger than we think we are, and that “Everything Resolves to Gratitude” in the end.

Law of attraction

Law of attraction

We all know that anything that has ever been created in the world first came as a thought, a concept, first. Therefore, thoughts materialize!

Mind your business

Your chattering mind may be telling you that negative, wrong, or hurtful things seem to happen to innocent people (and children). But dear heart, we don’t know why they came to live at this time in history, or the lessons they are here to learn. As well, other people’s problems aren’t really our business—unless of course, they ask for your help.

As well, when you get pulled DOWN by such thinking (about others), that is the law at work. Balancing ALL. ❤️🦋🌀

Now is the time

We are living in such awakened and conscious times! Yes! And we can look back and see the historical suffering that has occurred and learn from it. We are the ones we have been waiting for! We are the healers and light bringers. We can raise the vibration of the ALL!

True help

When you look at others who are confused or hurting, you desire to help. But true help, their growth—is an inside job (for them). You can be kind to them and offer them compassion, and comfort, but often growing can be painful.

Racists can be kind.

Meditate. Go within yourself to ease and clear your old patterns. This will expand the consciousness of those around you, as a ripple emanating in the water as a stone is dropped in. Those with lower vibratory tendencies will shape up, or ship out (and away from you)! You’ll know this is true as you begin to lighten up, and notice many around you, in your sphere of influence, living a lighter life.

Reach out

Reach out to me if what I have said resonates with you. I am in your circle ready to share tips and practices with you as you step up your inner game.

I’ve been where you are, doubting the law of attraction and that the path of least resistance is real. I’ve valued my intellect over my intuition too. But no more. Now, I observe detached from problems and focus on self compassion, play breaks, and time basking in meditation. I was one they said was “so serious.” I’ve lightened up and know you can too.

Light workers don’t hate

Lastly, you may consider yourself a light worker. But here is a big truth. Light workers don’t hate.

So, if you are struggling with that or find yourself questioning this truth, please reach out. I would love to offer some wisdom (and a whole lot of unconditional love), I feel will offer you freedom from some of the heavier thoughts you may be thinking.
