"If you are ready to accept all which you find in yourself, you will be able to move through everything with deep sensitivity, awareness, love and understanding." ~Gerd Ziegler Open any self help book, speak to any motivational speaker, listen to any lecture about finding your spiritual path and you will at some point come across the words “Go deep within” to find….life’s lessons, inner gifts, true self…etc. But for many that is a very scary task. Often support is needed.
There is a fear of uncovering old memories, feeling the pain of hidden wounds, revealing negative behaviors, or exposing vulnerabilities. Not easy work. And often if not done with the right intention and with the needed direction…it can be disempowering and create results less than what we hoped for.
When working with a shaman the soul work is done in a way that brings about positive change. It offers healing energies. It sheds light to loss. It reveals ways to nurture, release and embrace in meaningful ways that the soul resonates with. Soul work does not focus on the unattainable perfection that society has created. Soul work is about embracing our wholeness without judgment or story filled drama.
As Julia Cameron so beautifully states, "Wherever you are is always the right place. There is never a need to fix anything, to hitch up the bootstraps of the soul and start at some higher place. Start right where you are." The whole of who you are is what creates your beautiful individuality, adds the wonder to your life and the depth to your soul.
Working with a shaman allows your soul to receive the care and attention it needs. Life is often filled with trauma, loss, pain or suffering, abuse or neglect, even old labels placed upon us that we have owned that are not true. All this imprints a sort of energy within your soul and the shaman uses tools and guides to restore the soul, to heal it and to return its lost parts. This work must be done with great sensitivity, compassion, the greatest of love for the life designed for you and integrity.
Life shines brightly when good soul care is intact. Possibilities appear from realms beyond our recognition. Hope awakens within us. Struggles become manageable and we recognize our potential. A peace and grace fills us as we heal and embrace the whole of who we are. The “deep” work, done on a soul level creates the opportunity for us to be our fullest self.
