OH  LOVE  A  BYE    OH  LOVE  A  BYE
Oh Love A Bye    Oh Love A Bye
Mother, please whisper to me as I lye
Within the pooling of my soul
Gently rock me, as we flow 
Show me my pathway through the mist
Splash me clean with your playful twist
Oh Love A Bye   Oh Love A Bye
Dancing rainbow ribbons swirl  
Enter my love reservoir and let’s twirl
Dip me into your wishing well of dreams
Ready to receive your life force of means 
Oh Love A Bye   Oh Love A Bye
Mother Mu, Oh Mother MU
Sing your sweet melody to me
Let your sonar sounds set me free
Lead to still waters, where I can see
 
Oh Love A Bye   Oh Love A Bye
Your voice opens and colors my memory banks
Quenches my thirst within your ranks 
I listen to your precious songs, rhythms and rhymes
So I can join your heart beat and reclaim mine   

I have noticed that many of the more advanced shamanic classes are only offered after basic prerequisite classes are taken and sometimes this is a good idea.  

In the not-so-distant past, shamanism was almost unknown in the United States.  However, in more recent years, there are now a sizeable number of shamanic practitioners who are ready for more advanced shamanic workshops.  Many of these modern shamanic practitioners have learned in a variety of different ways and often from more than one source.  

Perhaps you’ve noted a strong shamanic overlap in such practices as meditation, yoga, mysticism, and the Kabala. Some of the basics of shamanism are very similar and do not need to be repeated. In cases where a practitioner has trained in one style (of shamanism) for a number of years and then moves to another style, prerequisites may not be needed. 

When I develop a shamanic presentation, the content is designed for both the newcomer and the advanced shamanic practitioner. I begin many of my presentations with what I refer to as ‘Level One Shamanism’, which is basic information helpful in introducing shamanism. 

It’s often been my experience that the socially acculturated routine energies of the personal intellect are the least effective energies we use. The daily self, or personal ego, is only a small part of who and what we are. 

In the workshop presentation, the energies of the group are harmonized, thus raising them as I call up the vast energy of COMPASSION.  Raised compassionate energies help the shamanic group in the following ways: 


1. Compassionate energy spiritualizes the workshop group and the whole area. 

2. These spiritualized energies have a healing effect on the Earth, the sky, people, and animals. 

3. Compassionate energy helps spiritual elders and people work together. 

4. Compassion draws forth our higher self and our authentic heart self. 

5. The nature of the Creator of the Universe is Compassion. 

6. I practice and teach compassionate shamanism. 

7. As shamanism is learned, personal INTENT is developed and polished. Polished intent may be used to co-create personal reality. 

8. I teach that polished shamanic level INTENT should be directed with compassion. 


At my classes, each attendee has the choice of engaging on the energetic level in a very deep, life-affecting way, or, should they desire, the attendee may simply observe with gentle intellectual curiosity.  It is totally up to the attendee how they choose to participate; either on a deep or shallow level, and how to approach the compassionate energies within the group. The level of participation is a personal choice and is of course, free from judgment. 

We can and should learn from everyone, however, the highest spiritual and shamanic authority always comes from within.  Personal prayer to the Creator cannot be replaced by any human and each person must nourish and develop their own personal relationship with Spirit.  


May you live from your most authentic, heartfelt self.

The theme for the 2015 North west Shamans Summit is the Higher Self. With this Higher Self theme in mind. I have decided to write a article entitled The Higher Self.
As a experiential shaman , these are some of my thoughts and experiences with regard to the Higher Self. First of all the Higher Self is the Authentic self. The authentic self or the higher self comes from the HEART , not the mind. The authentic or higher self can not be fully explained on the intellectual level. The roots of the higher self/authentic self , come from a place of spiritual silence and stillness. In order to better understand the higher self or the authentic self I will also talk about the LOWER SELF. In large part the lower self starts with our birth. After birth , family , friends , government , and school socialize and actualize us. We are told who we are , from many outside sources. We are told what are place in life is , from many external sources. Our so called limitations ,  are explained to us time , after time.
In shamanic Toltec terms , the lower self is the Tonal self , or the daily routine thought processes. The Tonal mind , or lower self focuses almost solely on the rational thought  process. The rational thought process has its proper place. How ever most other forms of perception are mostly unknown , or undervalued. Rational , or logical thought are greatly valued in life.
Some of the many other forms of worthy perception are
A.....HEART INTUITION
B.....BODY INTUITION
C....SPIRITUAL INTUITION
D....FEELINGS
E....EMOTIONS
F....GNOSTIC PERCEPTION
G....EXPERIENTIAL PERCEPTION
H....DREAM PERCEPTION
I.....ECSTATIC TRANCE MOVEMENT
J....MEDITATION PERCEPTION
In short , only one tiny area of perception is given great value , the Newtonian mind set of two plus two is always four. And I will only believe it , after I see it. The Tonal or daily mind set leaves out about 98 % of all other forms of perception. The Tonal mind often has the need to name things out of fear , in order to control every thing. 
The HIGHER SELF ,  or the AUTHENTIC SELF , comes from  spiritual silence. In order to come from your Higher self or in Toltec terms your Nagual self . Release all that you know. And lower your awareness into a place of silence in your heart. Meditating , or praying will also strengthen your Higher self , or Nagaul self.
One easy way to find out if you are operating from the lower self or the higher self. Look within , if you feel limitation , or fear. You are operating within the lower self. How ever , if you feel at peace , you may be operating with in the higher or authentic self. Both the lower self and the higher self have value. We all grow at our own rate. It is best if we all love our self's  unconditionally.
The higher self , is very Gnostic , and intuitive. The Higher Self , has few , if any limitations.
