Writing from the heart
Along the path to enlightenment, I have found that writing as I grow and learn has become an integral part of the process. I hope to share these thoughts with you, my readers, to help guide you along your own paths.
The shamanic journey can be held by anyone, to retrieve information, guidance and healing from helping spirits who come forward to guide us as individuals and as a community. Micheal Harner found that the shamanic journey is a practice common to all shamans and cultures throughout history, regardless of their geography and cultural differences.
It is very important that you make sure that the shaman you are working with is reputable and has had proper training, apprenticeship or initiations. Our Western structure doesn’t have the tight community support and supervision of the indigenous which leaves a lot of people practicing shamanism ‘’running free’’ without proper ethical codes, techniques and supervision.
A totem animal is a guiding spirit that has come forward on your spiritual path to come protect you, to guide you and to bring you healing or to give you information. Some people have many totem animals, others only have one or two and that is completely fine. Your power doesn’t come from numbers but through the depth of your connection to these helping spirits.
Our access point to connect to the world of the shaman is through the shamanic journey.

Yoni is the Sanskrit word that means the womb. In Sanskrit the womb connotes sacred temple, the source of our feminine power. Today marks the birth of a new self. In my life I have never had the pleasure of having clitoral orgasm with myself, through stimulation of my own hands.
