A shamanistic experience

A shamanistic experience

I was fortunate to study shamanism with John Perkins, founder of Dreamchange and author of several bestselling books. I've adapted this shamanistic technique from work in his Shapeshifting tapes as well as the personal interaction we had together in the Ecuadorian rainforest.

Anytime is a good time to do this, but generally Spring is the perfect time to welcome and growth and thank planet earth for giving us life. Sit in a wooded area if possible, if that's not possible sit on a wood floor or just let your imagination guide you - intention is everything, after all. Sit and connect to the nature around you. Ground yourself. Begin to dig your feet and hands into the earth. You should be on your knees, hunched over into a ball, as if you were a seed. Breathe the fresh smells, the life-force into your body and feel its vitality... plug into it and imagine you are a root beneath the surface beginning to sprout. Feel your roots spreading and building a solid connection into the earth. One of the roots is pulled upward instinctually and you follow that urge and grow and stretch to break through the surface, you can see glimmers of light through dirt and grass. You are a new stem growing strong and in harmony with the earth, the forest and with the heavens and as the first ray of warmth hits you, you breathe out in a beautiful exhale of release. You should be curled into a fetal position now but begin to stretch and grow, your arms reaching for the sun. The wind blows you but your roots are strong, you sway with the flow but remain firmly connected to the earth. Continue to uncurl your body and stretch and reach with your arms until you are fully erect. Make shapes... reach out for other plants and trees and caress them if you can... smile and say hello to all the life around you and feel your deep connection to it all. What shape you finally take is your choosing alone, so take this opportunity to feel what and where your body wants to go and what it wants to be. This is a new beginning, so state your intention in this sacred place of who you want to be and what you want to leave behind. Let whatever you don't need wash effortlessly out through your feet as the earth gladly soaks it up and transforms it into whatever it needs... this is a beautiful symbiotic relationship. Spread your arms wide up to the heavens and send out your intention of your ideal self. Stay in this process as long as you like, but a minimum of 20 minutes is the norm. Before you leave the process, make sure to thank Patchamama, mother earth and father universe. Thank the trees, the water, the wind, the dirt, the bugs... be at one with everything and send it your gratitude.
