Think about the following list, in comparison to what we think of when we hear the word, “shaman,” perhaps Jesus was a Shaman.
Story of blind man – Jesus instructed the man to put mud on his eyes
Tempted? Jesus purportedly said it would be better to pluck out your eye (if you couldn’t control your own lust) than lose your soul
Faith – touching hem of his garment (energy flowing through him encompassing his clothing – aura)
Prayer – all the time and in every thought
Solitude – Spent 40 nights in the wilderness
Preaching outside – walked and taught to people where they were, typically to people who did not attend church
Overthrow money changers in the temple – honor God – disruptive – he condemned the corrupt and greedy religious hypocrites
Jesus proclaimed things that were counter to what the priests in the synagogue were preaching, and spoke with authority
Essential oils – used natural elements
Alchemy – changed water into wine
Walked on water and calmed seas – controlled and “partnered with” nature
Jesus ate with publicans and so-called sinners, to the point that some labeled him “evil.”
Perhaps, we can each be our own shaman.
Perhaps, digging in the dirt when I plant seeds in the dark, moist soil, doesn’t make me a shaman, but when I repot a root bound plant, I consider how I am disrupting it for a moment, so it can have more room to grow. And somehow, that makes me feel like a shaman—at least a little bit.
And we can each, grow through the dirt. ❤️🦋🌀☀️🌚💦🌱
Do you think it’s time to disrupt religions?
God Omniscience IN us, not us IN church. You know, like when Jesus threw those moneychangers OUT of the temple. 🧐❤️🦋🌀🎼☯️🙏☮️
A bit about me
An Amazon bestselling author of two co-authored books: “Transform Your Life Book 2 Inspirational Stories and Expert Advice” and “Energy of Receiving”, both available on Amazon.
I would love to speak at your bookstore, crystal shop, acupuncture / chiropractor office, or other holistic / natural fair or festival. I support healthy lifestyle businesses. For information on both of my books, visit my Amazon author’s page — Click here.
God is real in the reality of the impacts on those open to the possibility. Considering whether or not to choose such openness, James decided that it is more beneficial to act as if there is a transcendent that gives an ultimate meaning to life.
William James, Philosopher and Psychologist—Father of American psychology.
Granted, not all believers in God claim to have heard God’s voice, such as Neale Donald Walsch, author of the series of Conversations with God books. Nevertheless, most believers do credit God with healings and a variety of phenomenon (such as synchronicities) that cannot otherwise be explained.
This is a huge topic, and one that I have written about before, so I won’t go into it all again, except to provide a list to my previous articles and say that I continue to reap energetic benefits from the time I spent at Newgrange in County Meath, Glendalough, Ireland, Stonehenge in England, and multiple sites in Scotland, especially on the grounds of Rosslyn Chapel and castle, Isle of Skye, and the Faerie Glen.
As you may recall, I wrote an article, https://sheilamurrey.net/2019/04/19/a-surreal-vision-of-soul-departing/ after my dad died (crossed over to the Grand Beyond), which was quite the profound experience. That surreal experience, as well as others regarding my still born sister, Christina (link in the section: Metaphysical Experiences), lend to my knowing of Life After Death, and add to my beliefs of Omniscience (my name for the unknowable Dao, or God).
Friend, film producer, co-founder of the Spiritual Cinema Circle, and author, Stephen Simon has now, published a book with his beloved wife Lauren (who crossed over to the Grand Beyond in her sleep). I am so thrilled their book, What Dreams Have Come: Loving Through The Veil, is available on Amazon.
Update: The Kindle version is available! I have read it and have a book review in process! Love it!
Also from the same Psychology Today article,
Studies with non-clinical populations have suggested that people are especially likely to hear hallucinatory voices during times of loss or bereavement. In one study, 30% reported hearing the voice of their deceased loved one within the first month of their death, and 6% still heard them a year later. In another study, 13% of persons heard the voice of their deceased spouse, including some who had been widowed up to 40 years prior to being interviewed.
To date, thanks to the metaphysical experiences I’ve had, I have learned that we’re never alone. This knowing gives me eternal peace. The following articles offer a glimpse of the experiences I’ve had:
Because I just can’t put all my trust and faith in any ONE person, concept, or teaching anymore, I have turned towards Spirit to lead and guide me.
I consider all I have learned up to this point in my life, as guideposts. Like training wheels help a child learn to ride a bicycle with proficiency and under self locomotion, that is how I view all religious instruction. Good for a time, but once you’re strong and steady in your knowing, and you have fully integrated Spirit, God, Source, Divine Essence, live the Dao, accepted the garment of the Christ, etc. you’re walking your path.
