A Word About Ceremonials Done Long-Distance
I am a Shaman of the 21st Century, a Technician of the Sacred. The ceremonials and knowledge of ‘the Ways’ that I carry are ancient in source and wisdom. A responsibility of myself as Shaman is to make the songs, teachings and ceremonials accessible to the People (that is you!). The tribal society of today is found around the campfire of the internet. And so I have come to your campfire!Imagine a tapestry stretched taut. Call this the Tapestry of Creation. There are marbles scattered upon the surface, which lies level and flat. Now put a baseball upon the tapestry. Its weight will cause a slight indent in the tapestry, enough to cause the marbles to shift their position ever so slightly. Call that baseball a person of influence, or a thought, feeling or experience. The heavier the baseball, or sphere of disturbance, the more distortion is created. In order to return the marbles to their original locus (call that one’s Purpose) requires the precise placement of spheres of pure Intent, weighty with Presence, in strategic locations upon the tapestry. This will enable the marbles to shift back into alignment with their own sovereign Spirit’s Path. Now, none of this takes place in the 3D realm. It all takes place in the non-temporal, non-spacial realm of the non-local universe… as any good quantum physicist can tell you. And what is Shamanism but spiritually applied physics!
When a ceremonial is activated between you and I, physical proximity is of no consequence. Engagement, however, is. Engaging through the medium of the internet – be it by telephone, email or a video call – our communication is what establishes the connection necessary for us to mutually access the Tapestry of Creation in the non-local realm.
Okay, so just knowing about this ancient secret of how and why Shamanizing is so effective is not sufficient to be proficient at applying this knowledge. It has taken our Lineage Ancestors thousands of years of research, practice and application to move the Empowerments forward to this level of precision and power, just as it took me (or any authentic Shaman) years and years of training and oversight to reach this degree of proficiency where I can engage these practices with skill and confidence… and compassion.
So here I am, my bag of ceremonial Sacreds ready to lay out as an altar next to your campfire. It is, after all, the Spring Equinox, and the People of my tribe are as deserving of this Cleansing and Blessing Ceremony as are any peoples throughout time. Just because you live in the hectic world of today does not mean you should not have access to these Ways, does not mean that you are less worthy than those who sit upon the Earth. I have come to your campfire… will you invite me in?
