Keep breathing and tap into your power!

Dear Friends, I recently received this from one of our dear Shamanic Ministers who has been down from a surgery. I was so touched by her experience, I asked her if I could share this with you.   In our Shamanic Healing Initiatory Process (SHIP), that she mentions, we teach the Shamanic understanding of the Cycles of Change that we all undergo, and how to use the Spiral Path as a map to our process of transformation and empowerment.  May we all remember to keep breathing and tap into our power as we move through times of challenge on the Spiral Path of Transformation.

Dear Star Wolf,
Last weekend was our second SHIP. I sadly wasn't able to attend because I am recovering from the eye surgery I underwent to correct the hole in my retina. Monday was about halfway into my enforced keeping my head down to allow a gas bubble to press on my macula--the method of healing the hole. I was so down, and feeling so bad about not being with my SHIPmates over the weekend and so sure that the surgery wasn't working (key in soap opera music here) and that I would be partially blind for life. Then I saw you in my mind's eye. You said, "Now breathe deeply." You put one hand on my heart on the front and the other on my heart chakra on the back and kept reminding me to breathe. You stayed with me for a while, just a reassuring presence, reminding me to tap into my power. Later that day I went to my eye doctor, who told me that my eye was right on schedule and was healing great. However, I had to keep my head down at least until Feb. 14. I felt such relief, along with impatience with this slow process, I'll admit.  Thank you for helping me out with your higher self, dear Star Wolf!

Thank you, dear one, for showing up on the planet at this time and tuning into your Higher Self!

Many shamanic blessings,
Linda Star Wolf

Star Wolf's Welcome

My journey in life has been a spiral path of wholeness that continues to move through cycles of change taking me through many symbolic death and rebirth experiences, which I refer to as “shamanic portals of transformation.” I have learned more than I ever thought possible through a process I will share with you in my future writings, called the Shamanic Breathwork™ process, and the five initiations process called S.H.I.P. Once I have made sense of the lessons on my path and discovered the bigger picture, I am ready to pass on and share both my stumblings and my leaps along the way. In my own spiritual quest, I have always appreciated most those who shared their struggles and victories in an authentic way. That will be my humble attempt within the context of this blog.

I believe that we are all indigenous to this earth. I respect all my relations, whether they be human, animal, plant, mineral, visible or invisible ones. We are all related by the great web of life and sent here from the great beyond. Everything we say and do touches all parts of this magnificent web of creation. If I treat myself or anyone else unfairly, we are all affected in some way. Fortunately, the converse is true, as well. I am not perfect. If I am honest and have humility, I can admit that I will make mistakes as I seek to further evolve my conscious awareness. I can also make living amends by striving to change my negative thoughts and behaviors, and live from a more open-hearted connection to others and to myself. I have learned over time that all the changes I seek in the outer world must begin by looking within myself first. I have also learned that it is imperative that I have the courage to be honest with myself and to look at the “shadow” side of my personality. When I have had the courage to truly know myself better, the light and the dark, I have found the inner strength to change my life and shape-shift myself into the light of my true soul’s image.

From time to time I will share different programs and events that are being offered through my non profit organization (Venus Rising Institute for Shamanic Healing Arts) in my blog, as well as photos, videos and teachings, etc. But the main purpose of this blog is to provide an outlet to share the inner musings of my shamanic spirit and journey, and to hear yours as well. I look forward to connecting with all of you who intuitively know that you, too, are a valuable part of the shamanic process of conscious co-creation and evolution on the planet at this time. We each have a role to play and a soul purpose in the drama unfolding in our world today. Together we can create a better place for all beings on earth to live and leave a powerful legacy for those who are yet to come.

I believe we will all be remembered by future generations for the choices we make during this time of huge evolutionary change. In the words of the wonderful poem, “Summer Day,” by Mary Oliver, “what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

In Love, In Service, In Gratitude,
Star Wolf
