    I did my first shamanic journey today.

    I tried not to have any expectations of what would or would not happen. I made it as the first one to the house, and the house seemed comfortable. The rooms were large and open and I was greeted by two dogs and a cat, which animals always put me at ease so that was nice. The...

    Bathed In the Beat of Feral Drums

    The pounding, pounding hands beginning to pain right in the knuckles. A drum skin, stretched taught, sings proud steady songs in the night. The only other percussion is the crackle of pine fire. Hissing,spitting, little bursts of chemical energy. I close my eyes...

    Fraying Threads

    The threads in the tapestry fray. edges blur, undefined. Returning to the beginning. that empty nothingness. The bane of all. It has already begun to consume us. Barely held at bay, it approaches, a gibbering mass of pure consumption. Life itself hangs in the balance. Good and...

    Who Knew??

    It was brought to my attention a few days ago that i may be a shamanka. Untrained with my birth rigth taken from me b/c of  a fanatical mother. I have been scouring the internet since then to research more on the subject. Is it possible that the shaman that was to train me...

    Odd Communion

    It is hard to focus. I delve so far into my own mind it is like I see through different eyes. I am called, pulled somewhere. Where does my heart lead me and can she hear me? I scream like a beacon across the very universe. When will she hear me and heed my call? Is the wolf...

    I have come to realize that my calling is towards shamanism. I feel that I need to get to the Amazon a.s.a.p. I would love to apprentice. Shamans, in western culture, could be diagnosed with schizophrenia?

    Experiencing My Own Truth

    I was a child prodigy in paying attention.  I could be extremely focus or allow myself to drift away into the abyss of nothingness, and I was happy as a child. As I grew up I was told I was great with computers and that would be a good choice for me.  I felt sort of stale.. not...

    Struggle Of The Shaman Path

    My feet tingle with energy, Harmony spreading up through the earth, A confusing cosmic high. I am my own drug. Battle rages inside and out And a serpent gnaws on my toes. Eyes open even when closed. All too much, must fly, Swim, gallop, jump, and...

    Stone Dreams

    I hate it when I lose my dreams, forgetting some important things. Of realms I do lie between, but what do all the tidings mean? Battle looms over us all, who can hear my howling call? Alone I do survey the wall, it must stand and never fall. Do I see what happens now, or do...

    Ponderance Of The Fall

    Golden gate on violet wall, What will happen if you fall? Why do I want to find out? Am I just a selfish lout? Is it curiosity Or does a deeper meaning seethe? What would I be setting free? Some thing from which we all would flee? Behind the bricks...

    Spiritual Evolution

    I have been a Pagan all my life, though I only realized it about 12 years ago when I joined a group in Canterbury and became a Practitioner of Natural Magic. Last year I started to become aware that my 'path' was going towards the Druidic belief system and felt that I was being...

    Many Ways To Walk Out Of One's Head

    I had no thought. I was not in my verbal brain. My perception…. oh, I can’t begin to describe it, or remember it. All I know is that I was being, and in being, I was freed to do things that I can’t do. Or so I am told. It was so blissful. I didn’t...

    So As Not to Divulge Too Much
