Review of Visionary Shamanism in Whole Life Times


Thanks Mac Graham for this great review! Fine feminist visionaries, indeed!
Letting go of hang-ups, clearing karma, releasing negative habits and conditioning; psychoanalysis, hypnotherapy and past-life-regressionswe’ve all struggled to accommodate our pasts.  Consider interactions in the opposite direction: channeling the future, next-life progression. 
Such is the premise of Linda Star Wolf and Anne Dillon in Visionary Shamanism.  In our emerging transcendent and timeless state, pasts and futures lose their meaning.  In the meantime we can creatively manifest our ideal futures through a system of exercises, dreams and meditations presented in this unique volume.  Filled with personal tales of multiverse contacts, lucid dreams and downloaded cosmic messages, these fine feminist visionaries teach us to build within ourselves an imaginal overlay of the material world, guiding us into a future in whose creation we consciously partake. 
Drawing notably from Native American shamanism and Egyptian psychoalchemy, the authors teach a system of personal transformation and collective planetary evolution, co-creating a reality of love and abundance. 
Our pain and anxiety amidst current personal and world crises mirrors the pains of transformation endured by the caterpillar shedding its larval life; the emergence and revelation of new eyes and wings allows to manifest a reality empowered by the consciousness driving the transformation.

You're most welcome! I enjoyed the book and futurist orientation, in a world too often gone stale with repetitive and challengeless droning. Raise the bar ever higher!

Thank you, Mac! Let's keep raising the bar by raising our own consciousness and planetary consciousness! Howls!

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,
Namaste’
