Travel Updates

It’s been a while since my last post and so much has happened over the duration it’s hard to pick a starting point so I will just jump right in with the differences I’ve been seeing, feeling and experiencing while doing shamanic work.

Most importantly for me has been trusting the process and self belief. To help me get in the right mind I perform daily meditation and make prayers for all people and life on Earth. I ask my father to guide me in living a positive life, and then I listen.

The relationships in my life have greatly improved as there is far deeper connections being understood for the first time and that insight has created better awareness. There has also been a repeating answer to this work and that is the power of choice. I love the fact that we are so greatly supported from beyond, but they allow us to choose our own path. Before I believed there was a difference of a righteous and a wrong path but now I’ve come to accept that there is no such thing as a wrong path only a deeper understanding needs to occur for one to move past (or to gain greater future discernment) in their life. 

One of the hardest things I’ve dealt with is seeing people having so much work ahead of them for their enlightenment but continue to take on additional problems. I.e. Alcoholism, drugs, gambling, shopping, sex, or any other type of escaping mechanisms. These all take us further away from our desired end goals but only because it’s easier to give into the weakness than to say enough is enough.

The last thing I’ve come to understanding with is that there is a great planner at work in all of our lives and if you trust in that you will begin to see things arranging themselves in your life like never before. I met a well known spiritual healer and was given very clear instructions to wait for specific points of the conversation to then begin opening up to him about myself. The healer was very close, but at the last moment became shy and did not communicate the necessary words. So I left without explaining why and who I am to the healer. However, that night a deeper awareness and cleansing came over me and was told to return the following day to see the spiritual healer. The next days conversations were amazing and gave me such great insight into my own life and resignated with my soul that all had been worked out for this event to take place. 

The greatest advice I can give you is to trust your intuition and look inward for the support you need as we are all blessed by the great beyond. We are all given the freedom of choice so let’s make the most of it and live our lives to the best, a life we can be proud to leave behind someday.

How it began

One year ago my wife was struggling in her life, so when speaking with a close friend the topic came up. Her friend recommended going to a reiki session as it had helped in her own difficult past traumas. At this point my wife was skeptical about reiki and delayed her visit. Finally when she got the nerve to call and schedule an appointment the only day available was on her birthday. So my wife took this a sign and decided that perhaps there was something to it all.

After her first session, my wife and I met up for dinner. At which time I wasn’t sure if the reiki session was good for her or not. I did see a change in her though and she seemed more aware of past issues that had been bothering her. She recommended that I might want to also get help for myself to better help dealing with my childhood issues. Of course I was happy for her but that wasn’t for me. 

Time passed and as she continued to do her sessions she finally came to a point when her reiki session would now take her on a journey to recover her soul pieces. This idea was something that I definitely could not get my head around. The reiki practitioner gave her a book that would explain more about the journey process and what to expect.

Out of curiosity I decided that I would read this book and try to navigate my wife safely away from this “new age thinking.” And as I read the book there was several points talking about spirits holding onto soul pieces and how they were not freindly. This idea was very disturbing and bothered me deeply. As a Christian this seemed very bizarre to me and unholy. But as I finished the reading I got to a place were I felt neutral about what my wife was about to experience. 

I felt uncomfortable with the idea of spirits holding onto our pieces, but at the same time the idea that my wife might be able to overcome her pain was something that would be a real blessing. The night after her session was strange as she told me about her journing. She explained how, who, why and what had happened to her in a past life that had still been effecting her current life. I was very skeptical, but my wife insisted and some things just rang true rather or not I believed I could not completely deny that something had happened to her. 

Once again she felt a difference in herself and recommended it to me. But of course still feeling complicated about my relationship in my religion, family and personal belief system I was not ready to explore reiki. While I did not want to do reiki I could not escape what was happening around me. My home environment was getting “lighter”, issues with money were being resolved and my relationships were shifting into positive directions. 

My morning routines had changed they started with Love and uplifting songs. My train commute was now done through enjoying positive books and readings. And I began meditation more frequently. Without knowing it people began to move into my life that would Help give me the courage to shift my thinking a step further.

While having coffee with my wife a man came by who I couldn’t help but want to connect with. He was reading a history book on Native Americans, which has always been a great passion of mine. Before I knew it the three of us were having coffee together. “Well actually coffee and hot chocolate!” As we continued to talk I found out that he was studying Native American anthropology because he had once practiced shamanism/ reiki. He no longer worked with people, however he does continue to do self healing and care. 

From our short conversation we became close friends and his experiences and thoughts really helped me to re-evaluate my understanding of reiki. I realize I know nothing of it and in fact what I believe was new age was actually the oldest spiritually practiced methods known to man means have a long and exciting journey ahead.

Focusing inward on myself has allowed me to heal faster than I ever imagined and although life can still be chaotic there is so much more peace and happiness in my daily living.

Medicine men, shamans, or whatever you recognize these people as they have one goal and that is the betterment of all people, and this call to action is why I feel led to bring this awareness to people around the world and hopefully one day be able to share my ancestors love for this world and once more help restore balance and joy.
