Who is allowed to be a shaman

 

 

The word shaman comes from the  the Tungus tribes of Siberia.

The word shaman doe's not originate from within the continental united states. The word shaman is not a american word.

A shaman is a person who is very experienced in going into the spiritual world, in order to bring about positive changes in physical reality. Shamanic practices have been found all over the world. No one culture, no one people, exclusively own the ability to be a shaman. A shaman has a practical relationship with the spirit world, and with the Creator. The great compassionate Creator, hears every one equally, and ACCEPTS, every one equally.  No one person or culture has the one and only deep way of praying to the Compassionate Creator.

Ask your self, does the Creator, hear ANYONE in the world more clearly than the Creator hears you? Does the Creator favor ANY ONE race, or culture over your race or culture? As you start to pray to the Compassionate Creator. Does the Creator say stop! Befor I hear you. Where you raised in a tribe ? Or where you raised in a city? The Compassionate Creator is OMNIPRESENT!

Does the compassionate creator only speak to or love indigenous people. Indigenous people are wonderful, and are loved and so is everyone from the city.  I personally have never heard of an indigenous shaman judging the spirituality of a city shaman. We are all the chosen race, we are all the chosen people, we are all the chosen culture equally.

From my viewpoint, I would ask that you only call yourself a shaman, after you know what a shaman is, and after you have prayed about this matter,  and only after being honest with your self, and the Creator.

Please understand shamanism, goes far beyond mere intellectual knowledge. A shaman, is chosen by the SPIRITS. A shaman, undergoes powerful initiations. A shamans whole energetic body is transformed by initiations.

We are all 10,000 ft tall eternal spiritual beings, having a important physical experience.
Shamanism is a form of spirituality. Let's leave skin color, culture, and the whole idea of who is more spiritual than everyone else out of shamanism. Let us view each other with acceptance, and COMPASSION.

This is one mans opinion! 

Experiential shaman, Kyle Bailey, founder of the Hummingbird Shamanic Summit

                Blessings 

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   

 

 

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.
