Symbols and Signs: Tree of Life and its Meaning

Symbols and Signs: Tree of Life and its Meaning | anything on shamanism | Scoop.it
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....

Thursday Therapy: a compelling narrative for your misery

Thursday Therapy: a compelling narrative for your misery | anything on shamanism | Scoop.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.

Why We Love Music, by Jill Suttie | DailyGood

Why We Love Music, by Jill Suttie | DailyGood | anything on shamanism | Scoop.it
What is our fascination with music? And, why is it that it sometimes invokes such a deeply emotional response? Scientists have been pondering this question for years, and now -- with fMRI technology they are able to visualize the brain's musical connection. "Music affects deep emotional centers in the brain," shares neuroscientist, Valorie Salimpoor. "It's very powerful." How powerful? In one study, research suggests that we may be biologically driven to our tastes in music.

Pablo Neruda’s Extraordinary Life, in an Illustrated Love Letter to Language

Pablo Neruda’s Extraordinary Life, in an Illustrated Love Letter to Language | anything on shamanism | Scoop.it

A swirling celebration of one of the greatest creative icons of the twentieth century.

Nobel laureate Pablo Neruda was not only one of the greatest poets in human history, but also a man of extraordinary insight into the human spirit — take, for instance, his remarkable reflection on what a childhood encounter taught him about why we make art, quite possibly the most beautiful metaphor for the creative impulse ever committed to paper.

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)

Depth Insights » NEW GRANGE: The Mystery of Speech by John Woodcock | anything on shamanism | Scoop.it

Inspiration!
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.

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.

"My purpose tonight in speaking is to suggest that the re-inclusion of the ancient world view expressed in the American Indian statement "all my relations" is precisely our greatest hope for the future, ecologically and psychologically. I'll say a little bit about the situation we are in. I would describe it as nothing less than imminent global catastrophe. Ecocide if you will.

 

As a species we are destroying our life support systems. The air is becoming increasingly unbreathable. The hole in the ozone grows larger. Water becomes undrinkable, the oceans are dying, the soil is eroded and turning non-arable. Toxic nuclear waste is leaking into all three elements just mentioned from unthinking, short sighted attempts to harness the fourth element, fire.

No one escapes the daily recitation of the facts of planetary destruction in the media. They are voluminous. But whether it is the loss of a hundred species to our ecosystem a day or the destruction of old growth forests equal to the area of Pennsylvania each year or even the information that due to pesticides sperm counts of American males today are 50% that of their grandfathers, we seem to respondto these facts with...(Click title for more)
