Legend of Our Future | Be You Bold | anything on shamanism | Scoop.it
“This book is both esoteric and science fiction prophesy. The descriptions have a cadence and a flow rarely found outside of poetry. In fact, many parts ARE pure poetry, soothing to emotions searching for a quiet place to rest. The journey of evolution recorded unfolds from one reality into the next as the characters expand into knowingness and enfold the reader in the beauties of their search. What a treat to discover philosophy made not only palatable but beautiful. "

Its very sound has a compelling pull on me.
I hear my breath expel softly as the word is spoken. Its sound conveys breathing—mostly breath, with no hard consonant “stops”.
So much like “whisper”.
I look up its meaning although I already know that “spire” means to breathe. This word also has two other meanings: a single turn of a spiral and a tapering, rising to a point, like a church spire. All three meanings, of breath, spiral, and tapering, are now independent of one another in our daily usage. But their sounds echo with one another—an echo of the past?
This preliminary “word work” already triggers a memory.
Spirals and vortices have frequently appeared in my dreams over the years. Part of my subsequent research took me to the Celtic world where spirals of course play a prominent role. I learned that Celtic scholarship could not discover any definitive meaning for the many spirallic forms found... (Click title for more)

But the archeological world of buried facts is not the only “portal” to our spiritual heritage—our dead past. Our spiritual heritage is also buried deep within our language, yes, as the past, but that past still living within our language, or as language’s very within-ness.

James Hillman’s Shift to Soul-Making (“From Anima-Mess to Anima-Vessel”)

James Hillman’s Shift to Soul-Making (“From Anima-Mess to Anima-Vessel”) | anything on shamanism | Scoop.it

Psychologist James Hillman is best known as the founder of archetypal psychology – a branch of depth psychology that developed out of and has found its place alongside Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis and C.G. Jung’s analytical psychology.

 

And if there is one word that is most associated with Hillman’s archetypal psychology it is probably that of soul-making. Originating out of the poetic mind of John Keats, the term soul-making as applied by Hillman refers to a practice through which individuals: slow down and deepen their connectedness to themselves, others, and the world; emphasize being over doing and the present moment over future aspirations; embrace and prioritize one’s woundedness, humanity, and limitations over a quest for perfection, transcendence, and transformation.

 

In other words, soul-making occurs every time we look more closely, more feelingly at the individuals peopling our lives and the ideas, afflictions, and ever-present prospect of death which together give substance and meaning to our hours and days... (Click title for more)

But according to Native Americans, we have 3 souls.  First is the ego-soul, which is embodied in the breath.  The second is the body-soul, which gives the body energy and life force during the waking state.  And the third is the free-soul which is the soul that leaves the body during dreams and trances. - See more at: http://www.spiritscienceandmetaphysics.com/where-our-soul-goes-when-we-dream-according-to-native-americans/#sthash.3K7ijaru.dpuf

Jewels from ― Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago | anything on shamanism | Scoop.it

“Reshaping life! People who can say that have never understood a thing about life—they have never felt its breath, its heartbeat—however much they have seen or done. They look on it as a lump of raw material that needs to be processed by them, to be ennobled by their touch. But life is never a material, a substance to be molded. If you want to know, life is the principle of self-renewal, it is constantly renewing and remaking and changing and transfiguring itself, it is infinitely beyond your or my obtuse theories about it.” - Boris Pasternak

When you read these words, one realizes that great wisdom  is coming through the author. And this wisdom is as relevant today as it was in 1956 (date the book was written) and 100 years before and 5,000 years before. True wisdom incarnates through some individuals in every generation. The words here induct, they are not just parroting, they are alive in depth and alive in the wonderment of the mystery.

7 Ways to Spark Your Sense of Wonder

7 Ways to Spark Your Sense of Wonder | anything on shamanism | Scoop.it

The taxonomy of wonder begins here, with the mere tickle, with surprise and puzzlement as cheap thrills, and it moves through the jolt and the jar, the gape and the gawk, the boggle, the epiphany, and finally to the awe that’s four-fifths terror—watching a tornado bearing down, scuba diving while sharks circle around you, being in an earthquake and seeing the ground rolling in waves, as my mother once did near Mexico City, forever undermining her trust in “terra firma.”



The sense of wonder speaks of our hunger to be moved, to be engaged and impassioned with the world and take pleasure in it, attuned to it and fascinated by it. Grateful for it.

The results overcame all our expectations, and the feedback was fantastic. Besides, we realised that we could deliver so much more beautiful templates! Shortly after, we launched the Social Media Booster Kit 2 entirely focused on the product marketing.

Symbolism of Tree of Life across different cultures, discovering a magical key to how life manifests itself, a complex formula of existence, the flow of creation from Divine to Earth and back to Divine.

 

The Mayan believed heaven to be a wonderful, magical place on Earth hidden by a mystical mountain.  They called this place Tamoanchan.  Heaven, Earth, and Underworld (Xibalba) were connected by the ‘world tree’.  The world tree grew at the locus of creation, all things flowing out from that spot into four directions.  These were: East associated with red, Northrepresented by white, West that is black and South that is yellow.  The Mayan tree of life is a cross with its centre...

Getting the Conscious and Unconscious Mind Working Together

Getting the Conscious and Unconscious Mind Working Together | anything on shamanism | Scoop.it
We are meant to be in relationship with the unconscious, not allow it to run the show while we strip our conscious minds of the faculties that we were gifted with. This is the secret to creativity.

 

We need to get the conscious and unconscious mind to work together in a natural sort of give-and-take. Imagination can be our great ally in this pursuit, as any good teacher of creative visualization would maintain. Most everything that we achieve is preceded by imagination on the conscious level: If we can’t “see ourselves” doing something then it becomes exceedingly difficult to actually do it....

“The task, for each person, is to figure out what they are, and then heed that call instead of resisting it"

 

This is a radical and humbling way of thinking about psychology. It means that what you think you want from life probably isn’t what life wants from you. And it means that living meaningfully is almost certainly going to screw with your plans, forcing you out of comfort and certainty, and into suffering and the unknown.
