Journeying & Honoring Messages & Spiritual Healing From Your Power Animals is a SAFE way to go into different realms of consciousness and feel the love, protection, guidance, and healing that your Power Animals have to offer you.
Our helpers are compassionate spiritual beings that appear to us as animals so that we can understand the lessons and teachings they bring us.This is their medicine. Power animals or guides are not worshiped and they are not deities.
They are honored and respected as a sacred part of God's creation, and they fill an important role in our lives.They sometimes stay a lifetime & sometimes visit us during a time of transition and leaves.
In the shamanic tradition, the animal spirits that we work with are known as "power animals". In some Native traditions these are referred to as animal spirit guides. I love working with animal guides, in both the physical and the spiritual realms. They have so much to offer us, if we will just open our eyes to their medicine. "Medicine" when used in this context means anything that brings us closer to our Creator and which brings healing to our lives or facilitates our spiritual growth.
The word totem comes from the Ojibway word dodaem and means "brother/sister kin". It is the archetypal symbol, animal or plant of hereditary clan affiliations.
We will discuss the 4 types of Medicine Totem Animals we may experience in our lives which are our: Birth/Life Totem,Journey Totem, Messenger Totem, & Shadow Totem.
We Don't Choose Our Animal - Our Animal Chooses Us
We do not, and cannot choose our power animal. It chooses us.The Great Spirit knows our need.So many times, people expect to receive a really cool animal that is traditionally Native American, such as a wolf, bear or eagle.Trust that the animal that comes is the animal that is needed.
The animal spirit that comes to us is not really an animal. It is a compassionate helping spirit that is appearing to us in the form of an animal so that we can better understand the message or lesson it is trying to convey to us.It comes to us in a way that we can both recognize and accept.
Once we re-connect with the teachings of your animal, we will embody & DANCE our animal. As the dance progresses,we will imitate the sounds and movements of the animal as we integrate the animal's power. We will also practice GAZING at our Animal's Photo & Ask Questions such as "How are you here to help me And What can I learn from you"? You don't have to be good at meditation to do this, and don't over think it. Just allow the knowledge through you.
Shamanic Practitioner Evan Eagle Star & I will hold Sacred Space, Healing, Drumming, & Native American Medicine Songs. Hands On Reiki Healing Will Also Be Available to those in need suffering from pain or addicitons of any kind to release, clear, integrate, & harmonize your energy field.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
