DARK JOURNEY INTO LIGHT
A SHAMAN'S TALE OF HOPE
I knew from the beginning I was different and that knowledge brought me
a great deal of pain. There was no one to share that with, no one who
would understand. Nevertheless, the images I saw when I journeyed in my
imagination and the creative urges to play out the role of a super hero
were so strong that I could not suppress them.
I was Mandrake the Magician, Wonder Woman, Tarzan, Captain Midnight, or
The Long Ranger. Most of my super heroes were men because I saw very little
evidence for strong women in my family. They seemed to be mostly victims.
There was always a strong desire to have power, to be powerful, but not
much evidence that I would ever be able to achieve this elusive goal.
I wanted to help others take their power, but often it felt like the blind
leading the blind.
My journey led me to explore a wide variety of studies: from Remote Healing
to Mystical Judaism, from the I Ching to Shamanism. And then a major break
through! Working with the concepts of Harold Stones' Voice Dialogue, and
doing inner child work, I realized the empowerment I was seeking was ".
. .nearer than breathing, closer than hands and feet". It was right inside
me! I began to heal and reparent those children and my life changed.
The next step was
to break an unspoken taboo, which was, you must never speak of or believe
that you are special, that you came here to do something wonderful, that
you came with special gifts and abilities to help your friends, family
member's, significant others, co-workers etc.
I believe that many
of you reading this article are on this same path of healing and empowerment.
The School For The Shamanic Arts is dedicated to guiding those
souls that are ready for this part of their journey. We can provide a
healing model for reparenting the inner children through individual counseling
and shamanic work. Those who are ready to explore their unique capacities
from past lives as healers, medicine persons, sages, teachers, crystal
workers, telepaths, visionaries, etc., let us assist you in bringing this
forward into present time and using it to make this a better world.
I look forward to speaking with you and answering any questions you may
have regarding The School For The Shamanic Arts.
