The Modern Day Shaman

Posted on July 30, 2014 at 11:14 AM
The modern day shaman faces a conundrum unique to our ancestors who walked before.  The need to have a day to day income and to make a balance to pay the bills. We have the same need as our mothers and fathers before us to go out into nature, connect with our guides and learn.  We must spend our time studying and working in spirit.  The village healer in the days long ago was cared for by society, or paid in chickens :-) In this day, we have the added stress of producing income.  The green kind.  The kind that pays the electric bill and puts braces on our children's teeth.  We are faced with the desire to live in a cabin, but the truth is we must survive in our society.

The result?  Many of us take day jobs.  Sure we accept money for our services, and we dream of spending each day in service to others, not having to go in and live the grind of society.  Truth be told, we signed up for this walk and it's challenges.  How do we do this?  We embrace the lessons we came here to do.  

I have become clever and determined.  I find the shamanic walk in the everyday life.  I do ceremony at 12:30 in the morning after a  full eight hour shift at my day job.  I light the sacred candle at the midnight hour...literally!  I drum whenever I have five minutes too pick up my drum and sound it.  I drink my coffee in the early morning, outside.  In doing this, I feel all that is around. I hear the birds, I great cardinal and crow.  Each Sunday, I wake up like a child out of recess...I shower, and rush to the nearest park where I walk among my tree brothers and hear the call of hawk. 

The walk of the shaman is a blessing and a challenge.  I have learned friends, never to let go to my heart's calling.  I work and pay bills, take clients on a moment's notice, and drum on!  That is what I chose, and that's how I roll.  My friends, today I would like to challenge you to take five minutes and devote yourself to spirit.  When you walk outside, don't rush to your car with your nose in the phone.  Instead, look up to the sky and thank great creator for the beauty of the sun on your face.  listen to the son of the robin.  If you begin to make a practice of hearing the world around and seeing with open eyes, you will open yourself to new dimensions!  Modern day shamanism does not mean becoming an armchair shaman!  Feel life to the fullest, your heart will thank you for it.
