For those of you who missed my last newsletter and the free audio download gift I gave -- 'How to Get out of an Inner Archetypal Traffic Jam' -- you can find it below!
Before I jump into the subject of this newsletter, some quick news: I have just returned from Los Angeles where I went to shoot a TV show for The History Channel! I will be sure to let you know the air date and more info on the show. It was a very exciting opportunity and I look forward to sharing the show with you very soon!
Your Calling to Activate Shamanic Consciousness
We live during incredible times making it both exciting and also challenging to be alive on planet earth. When you look back at history and think about all that has happened and then specifically look at the pace of change during the last 100 years, it truly is astounding to consider how much has transformed and how fast. Just 10 years ago I didn't have a cell phone. And now I have not only a cell phone, but a 'smartphone' that lets me do things my very first computer couldn't have come near, all in the palm of my hand!
Spiritually what I think is crucial to consider is that these outer advancements reflect back to us a spiritual call to make inner advancements as well. One could say that answering the call to develop 'inner technology' has in fact become a crisis. As the world swirls about us in a quickened sea change, our interiors demand the same. Enter in the Shaman and Wounded Healer Archetypes.
The Shaman Archetype of our collective past originated as the 'walker between worlds' for the tribe. And contrary to the New Age romanticism of the Shaman, one was usually called to Shamanism via a initiatory trauma that brought them to a near death experience.
Whether that was an illness, fatal wounds from battle, or a rigorous tribal ritual -- the initiation into Shamanism began with crossing over to the world of Spirit and coming back again with a psychic pathway, a conduit, established that allowed the initiate to access the Spirit World on behalf of their Tribe. A Shaman was thus an initiated human being who could walk between worlds and access healing and the Soul Contracts of others, while getting glimpses of the larger Divine Plan.
Becoming a 'walker between worlds' was a brutal initiation -- and certainly not something that can be accomplished by sweating it out for a weekend on some dude ranch in a faux tipi with hot rocks and some burning sage. Furthermore you had to be 'called' to it, and that call was usually issued through a wounding. This was not something that could be strategized.
Answering Your Call...
We live in a new era, and as such The Shaman Archetype has been changing in both how it calls us now, and how we are meant to work with it per our Soul Contract. Ever since we culturally shifted on many levels post the 1970's into the therapeutic movement, we have been fast tracked to engage The Shaman Archetype as individuals such that we gain access to our greatest gifts in profoundly new ways. Gifts that are also connected to our greatest wounding.
I call this your 'Sacred Wound'. It is the wound that summons you to the 'Other Side' to heal while helping you realize where true power and healing come from. The Sacred Wound asks you to engage Spirit so you can cultivate 'Soul Medicine' for your healing and turn that into 'Soul Service' for the entire human tribe.
That said I have learned in both my professional work and personal life our greatest gifts are indeed often connected to our most painful wounds. I am a living example of that. My expertise and wisdom as a teacher, my empathy and care, my capacity to keep it real and relate to you comes from my own painful wounds and darkest of nights of trying to heal them.
And it may seem strange to say, but I am so grateful for this now and wouldn't have it any other way. When we can arrive at gratitude for our wounds and gifts as being two sides of one coin, then we can finally let go of the Victim entitlement that our lives should have been any other way and reach out to each other with the Sacred Medicine we were each born to give. This is transforming our Fate into Destiny.
But getting there first requires a willingness to answer your Shamanic Call, and that call is issued when the time has come to finally heal your wounds. You know when you've received the call because something in your life has finally become too painful to outrun, medicate, deny, ignore, or defend against. Nothing else can soothe the wound but surrendering into it...that's how you know you've been called.
For in this new era of evolution, The Shaman and Wounded Healer Archetypes aren't just reserved exclusively for one person in a Tribe - Tribalism itself as an Archetype has been completely changed. Now many of us are called to engage our Inner Shaman through our psycho-spiritual pain. We are called to Initiation differently, yet just as powerfully as Shamans in the last era were. We are called to the task of making our own pain sacred...
That said, if you feel that the time has finally come to answer your Shamanic Call to make your pain sacred; If you feel you're ready to heal your Victim Consciousness and become a 'Walker Between Worlds; If you're ready for the power of acceptance that leads to cultivating Soul Medicine unleashing your greatest gifts, then I hope you'll consider taking my new audio course Making Your Pain Sacred - Healing through the Shamanic Power of the Wounded Healer.
