From an early age I was seeking, only I had no idea what exactly I was looking for. Ultimately, it would be many years before I realized that, all this time, what I had been looking for was Spirit. I heard and somewhat subscribed to the notion that everything was within me, but really truly something was simply missing, you know that magic ingredient that changes everything?
Eventually, after much searching and years of despair, I met my appointment with Fate. Did I dare to become completely lost? YES! The time was ripe for adventure to begin! And I met him, the Great Spirit! And what an encounter it was, two lovers colliding after years of absence. I was filled with ecstasy. Never had I felt more alive, more full, more united, more of everything. It was impossible to imagine doing anything else other than wanting more!
But stepping onto the path is not always an easy task. It’s a journey filled with richness and laden with honey but also tears and pain as inevitable metamorphosis starts to happen. The constant death and re-birth, as layers of armor disintegrate in order to reveal our true nature.
Shamanism is a way of life for me. Its being reminded, each day, that in our dance of Life, we are never alone, not even in the midst of the darkest night, we are not alone.
