Evolution, Behavior and the Future

 

Would you agree that your parents see the world much different than you? How about the names and characteristics we give each generation? (ie. Gen-X, Millenials, Baby Boomers, etc). 20180824_213232We read the history books and somehow it is always assumed that people a couple of generations ago were humans with an equivalent behavioral make up as ours. The world view of a generation can actually go undocumented, because it is their conflicts and actions that take precedence in our historical records.

We can learn at least two immediate tips from this. One, we can consider this world view as the subconscious influence of that generation always directing that mass of people to act in a certain way, setting the way for generations to come. Two, we can see this transition as a result of a higher intelligence directing humanity in a very specific direction.

This is in part how a mystic sees conflicts or developments occurring with peoples of completely different races and beliefs. 20180822_0207311A grander point of view  seeks to discern that elusive influence that is behind human’s motivations, feelings, beliefs and actions. We can use this same process to improve our everyday lives and interactions. Things that happen are just the shadows of a much more powerful influence that is constantly illuminating the scenes from behind the screen of this reality. In any ongoing conflict you might find yourself in, reflect on those elusive influences that hint at people behaving or acting in a certain way. Just having the intent of doing this will focus your consciousness at a deeper level. Not only will this practice allow you understand the whole picture, but it will also give you an awesome insights into the trend of future occurrences.

Entitlement? …but everything is a Gift!

20180905_223718I have heard about “entitlement” in young adults nowadays. I have seen it here in my session room in some of my younger clients as well. I am not a parent, so I can’t share an opinion of where this attitude originated. From whom I’ve worked with I can attest that these younger people legitimately feel powerless towards circumstances that older generations just assumed as part of life.

A shamanic philosophy would not allow these feelings to creep into anyone’s life. Everything in our material life is considered a “gift”. The warmth from the Sun, air, water. Everything on Pachamama (Mother Earth) is constantly providing “services of love” or gifts with the understanding of “Ayni” (a balanced exchange). Life in the remote areas of the Andes is not easy, but the people working the land there don’t complain. In their mind, they are providing a service to the community (in this case community also involves objects, plants and animals). Everybody is a brother or a sister and everybody cares for each other while walking over Mother.

Of course, we are human and each of us has his/her own free will. Sometimes,  preferences and disputes happen, but the attitude in the community towards this is to give the person time to reflect on their own. There are very few laws and rules and nothing is forced upon any person. It is known that if the action does not emanate from the heart, it will not function properly and will eventually wither away.

We come to this world and Mother Nature, provides what we need to experience it through the vessel of a physical body. Through out our pilgrimage in this loving planet we are also provided with everything we need to live, grow, enjoy, learn, etc. All is already there and constantly replenishing itself and everything is a Gift. Try to reflect on this notion and see for yourself the appreciation and desire of reciprocity that will flourish out of your heart.

Now, to take it to a energetic level, we humans are blessed with the capacity of consciously choosing to act out of this love. This makes the actions we take with this intention exponentially more powerful (or blessing or sacred) and that is what we shamans call “Ritual”. I do it a few times everyday. Try it one of these days, just appreciate the gifts and create an intent to bless your surroundings, I promise, you’ll be very surprised at the reciprocity within the next few days.

Who’s Fault is it and Who looses?

20180905_161412
Drawing by yours truly…

These are two questions that should always be at the very forefront of our every day interactions. Anytime your emotions are not optimal the answer is “You”. Life is about  experiencing blessings and to learning lessons. If at any time you are not aware of why you are going through an ongoing hardship, this means you are in the middle of a life lesson. You might be unaware of what this lesson is. Stop , reflect and find the lesson within the troubling issue. This will help Life get the lesson across easier and thus make the whole unwelcomed process shorter.

There are no enemies, diseases, catastrophes, accidents, etc. There are only lessons! This also takes us to the aspect of “Power” and the “Human Intention“. If someone is treated unfairly and his reaction is to blame instead of to seek the lesson, his power of intention will be aimed at the symptom, but not the disease. Instead, if anytime an unfair situation happens we focus our power and intention towards finding out why “Life” put this in our Path, the resolutions reached will end the unwanted cycle for forever (literally).

I’ll give you an example from my personal life. In the past couple of weeks I have been very unlucky in restaurants, not all of them, but enough to ruin many evenings. Waiters would forget me or my orders, meals would come cold, I’d be seated next to a wailing baby, my greek salad looked like a soup, a waiter and a bus boy almost got into a fist fight in front of my table, you get the point… Now, Shaman Flavio may write very relaxed here, but Flavio (the guy) also has feelings, gets hungry, frustrated, angry, etc. And trust me it was Flavio in these restaurants, not the shaman. At first I would blame the restaurant and continue living knowing they would loose my business, but after so many signs. I noticed, I was loosing an opportunity and that it had been my fault for not paying attention. I listened, adjusted my diet appropriately, and have had no further problems.

Shamanism is about developing your inner power. Try it right now, go to some social media site and soon enough you’ll find a baiting post that will poke at you annoyingly. Ask the questions: Who’s fault is it and who looses? Before answering, point at yourself and take the necessary actions to resolve it. In this case, maybe not wasting so much time in social media.

Shaman Flavio deals with a little Physical Pain

Storm

It’s been three days since I had a wisdom tooth yanked out of me. I would have never decided to go through the procedure, except that it was damaging a healthy molar. Today my face woke up a little less swollen and the pain is down to about 8%. The reason I have chosen to share this with you is because when life has us go through situations like these, there are a couple of opportunities and processes that can be applied.

First the process. To me it felt like the energy of a storm. When the news came that I had to extract the tooth, it was like a forecast with high probabilities of thunderstorms. While I was sitting there (awake) with three people around me cutting, drilling and pulling, it literally had the energy of lightning strikes here and there with lots of gushing winds and rain. Hours and days later it felt as if the eye of the storm had passed, but I still had to deal with the sporadic pockets of bad weather that follow the storm; as some pains came and went. This situation reminded me that sometimes we go through intense disliking experiences but just as everything in life…they pass.

The most valuable time for me happened the day after. When my face got pretty swollen and certain new pains started peeking into my awareness. My jaw hurt, the upper teeth hurt as if they had cavities. My cheek felt as if someone had hit me with a bat. Then there was a headache that somehow connected to my neck and shoulders. I also had sudden surges of exhaustion, chills, sweats, light-headedness, etc. As a shaman to me all this meant that my energy was re-routing itself. This is why I did not take any of the prescribed pain medicine. I wanted to share, participate and commune with what my physical body was going through. I believe that numbing the pain, could have in some form robbed me of an experience that I was meant to have. Without pain and feeling more normal I may have also worked sooner and that was not what my body needed at that time. Providing a service while in a state of unbalance could rub off some of the unbalancing energy to your clients.

My notes, right before writing this article

Finally, I’d like to offer a suggestion. As I have mentioned before, initiation has to do with an intense experience that stimulates the senses, while inducing a new pattern. Something like this, perfectly fits the conditions needed to be used as an opportunity of self initiation. Before leaving my house for the doctor’s office, I assigned a purpose to the intent with which I was going with. I focused on a specific idea and improvement in an area of my life and I kept repeating it as pain would happen. Energetically, when we are stimulated, our aura expands and brightens and this creates small openings where new influencing energies can enter our auric field (this happens constantly in our daily life). As I repeated my convictions, this allowed only energies related to my goals to enter my field while in that moment of discomfort.My inner chatter also needed some maintenance. On the second day I woke up feeling more pain and immediately my mind started saying, “What if it gets worse? What if this is just the beginning of a complication? Maybe you should take those pain pills now? etc”. This was a moment that I first observed and then very calmly spoke back to myself, “It’s normal to feel some pain, we are healing so let’s give our physical body some time to do what it needs to do. We will be fine regardless of what happens next, just trust me. If the pain increases we will take a decision then…”. That inner conversation aligned me and gave me a sense of assurance. It was as if I had called in all of the different aspects of my being and had shared a plan and a vision for our healing and well being. Going back to the storm analogy, I shared with everyone in the house (my body) that the storm would pass, to just sit tight a little longer.

Below, I have included a 45 min audio recording of me sharing the same ideas, but from a spoken perspective. Mind you, I am still a little out of it so I will sound a bit different…

Using Disagreement to Grow Stronger

20180825_094558Humans naturally want to be happy. It is normal to avoid situations that are uncomfortable or painful, specially when it involves conflict with loved ones. As an Urban Shaman, I am a perpetual student of the Human Condition, so to me moments that happen naturally and that create discomfort as seen as opportunities for growth.

I just recently had one of those interactions with someone I respect very much. We were having an ideological conversation and as I touched on a negative stereotype I observed a reaction on my counterpart. She intelligently swayed away from the subject and kept a firm hold on her emotions, but too late, I had noticed and so I pushed the subject further. I even emphasized the negative bias. This was a conversation about race and their perceived intellectual limitations. I may have mentioned before here that we shamans do encourage judging books by their covers. We do this because we believe Mother Nature talks to us and never lies. If something looks a certain way, it probably is and we have developed a system to read certain characteristics in people’s body types and faces.

To make a short story even shorter, the conversation ended awkwardly and some emotions were rattled. Later, we spoke again, and this was the teaching:

  • It is healthy for people to disagree and even argue, as long as respect is kept
  • Sides should seek a resolution that elevates humanity as a whole
  • If there is apparent evidence for someone that something is bad or negative, this truth should be challenged until confirmed or proven wrong.
  • When involved in one of these uncomfortable discussions, emotions don’t need to participate, because it is not about ego, ignorance or malice; it is about “Resolve”
  • If your emotions complain, this is the sign that there is a weakness in one of the pillars of your philosophy and the subject should be explored until firmly settled.
  • Once all the discomfort has passed and (hopefully) the negative bias is proven wrong, although someone lost the argument, everybody in that exchange won, because humanity is elevated!

Take a deep breath, center yourself and appreciate your humanity. We are all one species within Mother Earth. Let’s not avoid uncomfortable dialogue, let’s explore it together and in the process increase our respect, resolution and common evolution of each other.
