The Seven Shaman Principles
by Serge Kahill King

  1.
     The World is What You Think It Is

     Positive thoughts attract positive people and events, and negative thoughts attract negative people and events.

     Corollary: Everything is a dream

     Dreams are real and reality is a dream. The only test we use for a reality check is whether or not someone else experiences it. Hallucination means "your dream doesn’t match my dream." "Reality" to a shaman is a mass hallucination, or a shared dream. If this life is a dream and if we can wake up fully within it, then we can change the dream by changing our dreaming.

     Corollary: All systems are arbitrary

     All meanings are made up and the Absolute Truth is whatever you decide it is. What matters is how well the system works for you, not how true it is (which is an arbitrary concept).
  2.
     There are No Limits

     We experience two kinds of limitations: creative and filtered. Creative limitation assumes the purposeful establishment of limits within an infinite universe in order to create particular experiences, made by God or our own Higher Selves. These enable us to experience life as humans on Earth (to play by that particular set of rules - breaking the rules changes to another game).

     Filtered limitations are imposed by ideas and beliefs that inhibit creativity rather than enhance it, like beliefs that engender hopelessness, helplessness, revenge and cruelty. They generate focus without the potential for positive action.

     Corollary: Everything is connected

     The usual metaphor is a web of interdependence.

     Corollary: Anything is possible

     All you have to do is believe. However, because you are not alone in the Universe, the degree to which something can be shared depends on the beliefs of others around you.

     Corollary: Separation is a useful illusion

     Pure empathy makes you as helpless as the one suffering. Fear make you lose sight of your role as dreamweaver.
  3.
     Energy Flows Where Attention Goes

     Meditation and hypnosis are simply different techniques for doing the same thing - refocusing your attention toward more positive beliefs and expectations. As states, both are identical conditions of sustained focused attention.

     Those aspects of your present experience which seem enduring are the effect of habitual sustained focused attention carried on by your subconscious.

     Corollary: Attention goes where energy flows

         Attention is attracted to all kinds of high energy intensity.

     Corollary: Everything is energy

         Thought is energy and one kind of energy can be converted into another kind of energy.

  4.
     Now is the Moment of Power

     Karma exists and operates only in the present moment. It is your beliefs, decisions, and actions today about yourself and the world around you that give you what you have and make you what you are.

     Thanks to memory we may carry over habits of body and mind from day to day, but each day is a new creation and any habit can be changed at any present moment - even if it isn’t easy.

     You select out of the immense resources of your gene pool those characteristics that best reflect your present beliefs and intentions. Your parents/social background have nothing to do with your present, but what you believe about them now and how you react to those beliefs does.

     Corollary: Everything is relative

     You define "now" based on your focus (second, hour, year, lifetime).

     Corollary: Power increases with sensory attention

     Many people living today aren’t even here - most of their attention is focused on the past or the future. To the degree they diminish their awareness of the present moment, their power and effectiveness in the present also decreases.
  5.
     To Love is to Be Happy With

     Love exists to the degree that you are happy with the object of your love. The unhappy part comes from fear, anger and doubt. To be deeply in love means to be deeply connected, and the depth and clarity of the connection increases as fear, anger and doubt are removed.

     Corollary: Love increases as judgment decreases

     Criticism kills relationships; praise builds and rebuilds them. When you give praise you reinforce the good and it grows. When you criticize you reinforce the bad and it grows.

     Corollary: Everything is alive, aware and responsive

     You subconscious takes any praise or criticisms it hears to heart, even if it’s directed elsewhere, even if you’re saying it. Each criticism separates you from and decreases your awareness of what you criticize, until you end up responding to a secondary creation of your own that may no longer resemble the original. When someone criticizes you, praise yourself to counteract it.
  6.
     All Power Comes From Within

     For every event that you experience you creatively attract it through your beliefs, desires, fears and expectations, and then react to it habitually or respond to it consciously. This does not mean that you are to blame for your abuse or injury, because you were probably not conscious of your negative beliefs, attitudes and expectations. It also does not mean the other person is innocent.

     Corollary: Everything has power

     You do not have ALL the power in the world - everyone has the same power. The good news - you can work with these powers.

     Corollary: Power comes from authority

     Confident authority is the key to conscious creation.
  7.
     Effectiveness is the Measure of Truth

     The means determine the end, not the ends justify the means. What is really important is what works.

     Corollary: There is always another way to do anything

     Every problem has more than one solution. If the goal is important, you should never give up, just change your approach.


Basic Format for a Ritual

  1. Preparation
     Get all your props and clothing together, arrange furnishings, set up music, plan the steps, and designate the special area.
  2. Opening
     A dramatic gesture, words of prayer or greeting, a musical attention getter, or a get-acquainted process.
  3. Content
     Doing whatever is involved with the purpose of the ritual. Generally, the shorter the content, the more formal it is (wedding vs. Olympic Games).
  4. Closing
     This is where you get everyone’s attention back and make a definite end to the ritual. Often overlooked.

What Determines Effective Ritual

  1. It must have a strong beginning and ending. Start by doing something to get everyone’s attention. At the end, get everyone’s attention again and clearly end the ritual.
  2. It must have strong sensory input. The more senses the better -- vision, hearing, scent are common - try adding taste and touch.
  3. It must have a familiar or predictable form. Include familiar sensory elements and patterns in every ritual, even though every ritual on every occasion might be different.
  4. The meaning of every part of the ritual must be understood. To whatever degree a part of the ritual is not understood, its effectiveness is lost. Explain before or during the ritual.
  5. It must be special. Make ritual times into occasions of positive reinforcement of your groups shared values.

What Makes a Ritual Special

  1. A special area
     An area can be made special in several ways. One is consecration - doing a ritual blessing. The easiest way to make a place special for ritual is by encircling it with people, especially by having them hold hands.
  2. Special objects
     Clothing, jewelry, decor, tools, food.
  3. Special movements
     Gestures, postures, dances.
  4. Special sounds
     Intonation, chanting, singing, music, percussion, prayers and blessings, special words.

And to bring change and challenge,
The ecstasy of movement and the dance.

So that your power may flow through us,
And be expressed by us,
For the good of this planet,
And all living beings upon it.

O Great Spirit of the West,
Spirit of the Great Waters,
Of rain, rivers, lakes and springs.

To cleanse and to heal,
Great blissful darkness of peace.
We pray that we may be aligned with you,
So that your powers may tlow through us,
And be expressed by us,
For the good of this planet,
And all living beings upon it.

O Great Spirit of the East,

O Grandfather Fire, Great nuclear fire -- of the Sun.
Power of life-energy, vital spark,
Power to see far, and to
Imagine with boldness.
Power to purify our senses,
Our hearts and our minds.
We pray that we may be aligned with you,
So that your powers may flow through us,

For the good of this planet Earth,
And all living beings upon it.

Power to grow and bring forth Flowers of the field,
Fruits of the garden.
We pray that we may be aligned with you,
So that your powers may flow through us,
And be expressed by us,
For the good of this planet Earth,
And all living beings upon it.

Meni zelo ljuba invokacija - katere namen je, da ustvarimo sveti prostor za delo in vzpostavimo povezavo z arhetipskimi energijami Inkovskega medicine wheela.

“Serpent represents the binding principle;
jaguar is the renewing force; hummingbird represents the epic journey of evolution and growth; and eagle or condor stands for the self-transcending principle. Heaven is the creative force; Earth is the receptive force. When you summon them, you align yourself with the forces that animate all life.” —

Alberto Villoldo, Shaman, Healer, Sage

-----------

To the winds of the South:
Great Serpent,
Wrap your coils of light around us.
Teach us to shed the past the way you
shed your skin,
To walk softly on the Earth.
Teach us the Beauty Way.

To the winds of the West:
Mother Jaguar,
Protect our Medicine Spaces,
Teach us the way of Peace,
to live impeccably,
show us the way beyond death.

To the winds of the North:
Hummingbird, Grandmother and Grandfather,
Ancient Ones,
Come and warm your hands by our fires,
whisper to us in the wind.
We honor you who have come before us,
And you who will come after us,
our children's children.

To the winds of the East:
Great Eagle, Condor,
Come to us from the place of the rising Sun,
Keep us under your wing,
Show us the mountains we only dare to dream of,
Teach us to fly wing to wing with the Great Spirit.

Mother Earth,
We've gathered for the healing of all of your children:
The Stone People, the Plant People,
The four-legged, the two-legged,
the creepy crawlers,
The finned, the furred, and the winged ones
– all our relations.

Father Sun, and Grandmother Moon of the Star Nations,
Great Spirit, you who are known by a thousand names,
you who are the Unnamable One,
Thank you for bringing us together
And allowing us to sing the Song of Life.

Have You Taken the Time to Really Listen



A friend came to me today and needed to talk.
As I sat listening, I wondered just how many times
I had said, "If you need me, I'm here for you". As
this friend began telling me what the problem was,
I realized, I was tuning out and turning off. As I
watched what was being written, my mind wandered.
I thought to myself, this is such a small problem
compared to what I am facing right now, why do I
waste my time? But then something was said that
grabbed me and moved me. This friend described how
much turmoil had come into her life and how she
just felt so alone. How she didn't think she
wanted to continue living. At this point, I
struggled for words to tell her,"NO! That was not
the solution". I even said, "You have many who
care for you and are here for you"....see, there
it was again, that old phrase, but is it really
true? Do we just express empty words that have no
real meaning? Do we just say them because, at the
time ,they seem appropriate? Do we REALLY mean
these words? So many come to trust one another,
why we even share our deepest, darkest secrets and
at times these secrets become known to all. Is
this the way it should be?
After much time and effort, I really began to
listen and pay attention. My inner voice said,
"Hey, this time, this one is for real. She is
really serious and she has come to me because I
said I will be here for you." We talked a long
while and after much discussion, she understood,
there was someone to reach out to and someone who
would make a difference and just listen. And I
realized, it doesn't take much time or effort to
be there when a friend needs me. My troubles may
seem larger than life, but maybe, just maybe, that
one time I ignore a plea for help, is the one time
it is REALLY needed.
So, next time you say those few simple
words,"If you need me, I am here for you", think
about it....Do you really have the time and are
you really there? It may make the difference in
someone else's life.

The Shadow of the Shaman
by ShadoWoman



In order to be an effective shamanic healer, one must first heal him/herself.  It is imperative that the shamanic healer begin by confronting his/her own Shadow-side.

Everything has a dark side and the sooner we accept this, the sooner we can love all of existence for what it is.

The character of the Shadow is negative and is all the traits we keep hidden from the world and, most often, from ourselves.

We hide these traits to avoid being criticized and ostracized by family, friends, and society at large.

The Shadow (which I affectionately call my "demon") has been with us from birth and will remain with us until death.  It feeds on our negative feelings--self-doubt, discouragement, rejection, and depression...just to name a few.

The Shadow gains power when we dwell on these negative feelings and/or when we deny its existence altogether. It becomes our antithesis; our personal opposition and if left unchecked, the Shadow can and will take over our lives.

Nobody, and especially not a Shaman, can afford the risk of living in denial of the Shadow's existence.  Simply put--it is folly and irresponsible to even try to do so!  We must take control of and be responsible for our own existence before we can be entrusted with the healing of others.

We must have the courage to go deep within and confront our shadow-self; to sit with it in pain.  We must bring every negative quality out from the dark and into the light that the gifts of the Shadow may be used for good.

This is a minor example:  If you've been the kind of person who is always "walked on" because of an inability to say "No," then the Shadow can give you the courage to just say "No."  

By acknowledging and incoorporating the Shadow into our being, we begin to accept our strengths, as well as, our limitations.  We begin to understand that bad things happen to good people and that without the darkness of the Shadow, we can never fully appreciate the greatest of all of Creator's gifts--the gift of Life!

...A Journey to the Shadow

Materials needed:  Blanket & Rattle or Drum

For this journey you should first make 2 lists...one listing your positive qualities, the other your negative qualities.  Be honest!

Place a blanket on the floor of a dark room.  Smudge your area and self.  Lie on your back, breathe deeply and relax.   When you are relaxed and comfortable begin to focus on your negative traits.  Notice how they've weakened you or strengthened you.

Next, state your intentions, "I seek my Shadow-Self" and begin to rattle or drum in a steady rythm until you begin to feel a shift in your consciousness.  Go to your entrance into the lowerworld.  Your guides will be waiting for you already.  Mentally state your intention to your guides.  They will know the places to look for your Shadow.

Most likely your Shadow will not be easily found.  It will run and it will hide because it doesn't want to be found.  It may flee into the upperworld, so you will have to climb the World Tree to get there.  Your guides will continue to help you on your search.

Wherever it may be, when you do find it, approach it with the utmost respect and confidence.  Some shadows can be aggressive, but you are in a place where you can manifest the things you may need...so manifest a weapon, such as a staff or sword for your defense.  Do NOT wield your weapon with the intent to destroy or you will kill a vital part of yourself.  Some shadows will simply flee again.

When you are able, coax your shadow to sit and talk with you.  It will probably whine and place blame on everyone else for making it the way it is.  Be firm, but gentle in letting it know that you created it and that you will not let it control you.  Let it know that you are responsible for your own life.

Ask your shadow to help you on future journeys and thank it for talking with you.  Say your farewell and return from your journey.

You may not find your shadow on the first journey, but don't give up, try again another time.  It is afraid of being discovered.

Never take your Shadow's existence for granted and remember that it will take time to forge a trusting relationship.  Work with your shadow and talk with it regularly.  Your shadow's qualities will strengthen you and be a tool of usefulness on future journeys and in your life in general.
