Learn Ancient Shaman Vision Questing practices and claim the East's powers of Inner Sight and Illumination. It is the fire or yang power that provides, protects and seeks knowledge and solutions. Claim these talents for yourself and you are prosperous, safe and free of dependence on others. Ignite your Yang-self and set free your power to benefit from changes and explore your potential.
Build an East Medicine Bundle to hold the wisdom. Soul retrieve your ability to change and prosper and then build a self-totem of light, love and power. In this ancient practice you claim back your original heart-path and destiny.
Each Season a Shaman Ways full training is offered. The "East" will begin at the Ocean (weather permitting) and then will move to the house to build the East Medicine Bundle and your Self-Power Totem. You are combining 3 workshops (or 3 sessions) in a one day intensive.
By the end of the workshop you will "explore and know personally" the East and begin working with The Sun, Solar Power and Star Nations.
The Solar Light awareness brings in your awakened potential - often beyond your current awareness.
You will anchor this wisdom into an ancient practice of "planting seeds" in your Power Totem and turn it over to the Great Mystery - assuring growth beyond your past limits.
If you want a dynamic and fruitful 2013 - now is the time to activate your Yang-Male self and your 'fire power.'
Explore the ancient practice of empowering a Medicine Bundle - and also build a Medicine Wheel for your Vision for the coming year. Learn to listen as your Soul-Sprit Self guides you through the Medicine Bundle practice.
The results are similar to a Vision Quest - in that you are pulling in Visions and Power. The workshop includes all the elements you need: oils, herbs, chants, songs and prayers to build your link-in with the East Quarter and to own this traditional Shaman wisdom practice.
At the end of the day you will have the tools to "...see your soul-path in your Wheel" - and have the "powers" to affect positive changes to achieve it. The East Quarter teachings and tools are offered in the Spring Equinox season - so the energy of this season adds to your insights. This East Intensive will NOT be offered again until next year. Discover how to use the power of Fire and direct changes with Shaman Ways - now is the time.
Turn the Wheel of Life at the Crossroads and enter deeply into the inner realms of the East: the Path of Knowledge - the wise ones who teach and carry wisdom. The Vision is from Grandmother and Grandfather Eagle: The Big picture of Life - where you are and how to get where you want to be.
It is the time of finding Clarity and Insights - assuring Illumination that reveals your unique heart-path.
Move through the 3 Rings of Power and lock-in the Mystery into a medicine bundle to wear or use when you need it. You will discover how to open the passage, build a power bundle; align with Eagle and/or Wind Horse or Condor medicine for healing and for the insights to easily make changes and create Life as you direct it to be.
Anchor into your heart-path and you find your inner rhythm and balance. Spring is a good time to begin building an East Medicine Bundle - power to clear away the old fears and to grow into a life that becomes your dreams. A Medicine Bundle is a method of using the practices of empowerment. It is support and added energy to make changes and to live a life of synchronicity and magic.
The Spring surge of energy is a huge incoming wave of growth - that crashes into Life in a very big way. If you know your destiny - it can carry you quickly to your desires. Prepare and discover how to surf that wave - not be pulled back into repeating your past over and over. Changes are up to you through the choices you make.
Your strength increases through the year as you add each gateway of the 4 Quarters. The 4-Direction Intensives are offered each in their own season at the Equinox or Solstices. At the end of the year – you have a working Medicine Bundle – and the practice of aligning with your Soul Path in the Medicine Wheel.... See how to work with your powers and your challenges...daily – and find your destiny in your results. Spring Season begins February 1st and ends May 1st.
Each Direction offers different powers or medicine. Build up your personal power and anchor it in Medicine Power totems. The resources you need are waiting for you. Ancient traditions continue through centuries - because they work.
The Spring Equinox (March 20th) is an "opening" - and the transition into the wisdom of the East-West axis of the Medicine Wheel. A time of balancing at the cross-roads between what was - and what will be; and the Good Red Road of Life - balancing between the Yin and Yang. It is also stepping into the Yang or outer realms as the nights shorten and the days lengthen. Explore the Wisdom of the East now while the forces of Mother Nature are turning outward - just as your body-mind self does.
Medicine Ways heal and restore balance. Your personal Medicine is all that will work for you. It can only come from your experiences, commitments and actions. Build a Medicine Bundle from your practices that can actively empower and asset you on your life path.
All prayer is about power or medicine: The power to heal or to thrive. Power comes from two sources , one is from Life Force or Source and assistance from the Star Nation; Great Spirit and the Ancient Mother of all things - "above you."
The second source of power is through your blood ancestors (Tribal Soul or Karmic ancestors) and Earth Mother and the Elements of Creation.
This Power reaches into the underworld of Spirit - where all "life" originates and then "grows" into the world we know.
Shamanic Journeying is exploring alternate realities to heal (lost soul parts) and to enlist Power or support and guidance to live your life in Beauty & abundance.
Use both in daily practice and your life will transform as you direct it through using the tools of the Medicine Way.
You will explore the rituals and practices of Shaman Power Ways in the East and an introduction into working with the Fire Spirit Keeper of Clarity - that lead to Insights and ultimately - to Illumination. Animal guides and Medicine, Spirit Keepers of Place, sound, vibration, soul retrieval - and build your own Power Totem to carry the medicine, and scents of Plant Medicine. You will build a basic Medicine Wheel and fully develop the East Quarter in your own unique symbols and meanings.
Your Medicine Bundle can be worn or used in your Wheel. The Medicine Wheel is the practice of placing your Soul-self out into a form (A compass of 4 directions and cross-roads) of the Medicine Wheel. Now you can work with issues, solve problems and release long-standing limits or fears.
Now is an excellent time to:
- Learn to open the East Gate and enter within - below the surface of life. The East is the Place of Male or Yang power and claiming your destiny. You will turn the Wheel and move through the 4 levels and arrive at the Cross-roads of the East. Meet with Eagle or Hawk or Condor (and Horse) - Spirit Keepers of the East - who will guide your healing and journey into inner realms. It is here you cross over from the Red Road - to the Blue Road of Spirit and work with the Great Mystery.
- Calling In: Open your heart/mind/body to the wisdom within: Heart resonance. Opening the outer heart-chamber (3 chambers & in the inner chamber is union with your Source and Soul-self.)
- Explore your relationship with the East, AND your Bird or Ancestral Spirit Keeper. Build a relationship and a personal power to "go within" and birth your dream over the coming summer. Cleanse out the old: retrieve lost soul parts and reclaim your light and energy - mired in the past. All the herbs and oils you need are provided - with the wrapping for the medicine totem.
- Choose 4 Stones for the 4 directions and a Medicine Ancestor or power totem to assist you. Empower the stones for working with your Medicine Wheel. If you have a Medicine Wheel - bring the 4 stones for the 4 directions.
- Build your relationship with the Spirits of Fire and Luminosity: offerings, asking and receiving. Burn through the 3 rings of power: transforming, transmutation and transfiguration -- using the Shaman creative tools and practices.
- Journey with a Wind Horse Spirit - explore and release a pain, heal, and open to receive grace. Save the power and wisdom in a stone for your Medicine Bundle or Wheel.
- Community healing with Fire Spirits for cleansing the lower, middle and upper worlds. Letting go and trusting - with each conscious breath you join in the creative process of life and bend the outcomes to your heart-path.
- Your experiences produced the memories that limit you. See how to dissolve them and be free to align with Source and your life purpose through Warrior Hawaiian Huna wisdom. This is the power of transfiguration and using the Mystery.
- Tree Wisdom: Shape-shifting and explore drawing in and releasing: Abundance. Speak to the tree and Guardian Spirits of the East- shape-shift and discover the meaning for you. Your Soul Retrieved Self heals old wounds and opens you to your real creative desires. Make offerings and receive a gift and create a relationship.
- Fire Spirits of Transformation and Knowledge: Fire Spirits calling-in and offering, exchange commitments (let go of the old) now ask to fill this space with your wishes. Explore how to talk or "feel" with Fire. Anchor in the gift and find a power totem to connect you.
- Choose medicine items and activate them for your Medicine Bundle. Tie your dreams into your Totem of your future-Self - using the web of life and fire spirits to bring in qualities you want. Also add the magic of conjure oil to assure your successful outcome.
Wind Horses carry the waters of life and Flow in from the Sun, Stars and from the Sea.
