Shamans all around You

We all get those glimmers of a connection to something bigger and more real than what we are educated to believe. For many, these experiences are welcomed in wonder and then shrugged off as they continue their pursuits in a temporal life. For others, the experience of something larger than us, breaks something within us and life can never be the same.

To question all your beliefs and to seek Truth for yourself is to be a Shaman. There is that obscure idea that shamans have a gift and that they never call themselves that word, but I sternly disagree. A shaman is an individual that honors his inner wisdom, has the courage to seek his empirical truth and to walk within harmony with Mother Earth as he heals all that he can.

In recent months (as I predicted), more and more of you have come forward to become shamanic apprentices; and this will increase. As technology continues to reach exciting peaks, humans will be attracted to explore the Ultimate Mystery…Consciousness. Shamanism offers the timeless process to safely chart and navigate worlds beyond.

Many people feel anxious, depressed or “off”, but before long, the word will spread and all of that unhappiness will be completely be eradicated as our understanding of this existence becomes perfectly harmonious with the intended way to interact with this physicality. In my opinion it’s not that the masses were lied to in order to be subdued. As a mystic I see this from a human evolutionary point of view. A river needs to flow, if obstructed it will naturally seek a new path. We don’t get stuck criticizing the path’s reasons or agendas, we just celebrate the flow. Looking forward to a bright and happier future!

The Magic of Perspective and Loving Life

An array of issues can be magically dissolved once we internally shift to a higher perspective. So often I receive clients feeling like victims of life and after some reflections the situations are understood as challenges to chase. The amazing result is that once this shift happens internally, “Life” immediately responds and starts behaving accordingly externally.

One of my main aims in training future shamans is to share the understanding that everything around us is energy and that this energy has consciousness. In Shamanic terms we’d say, All is Spirit. This is why you’ll find an Initiated Shaman having a conversation with a rock, plant, animal, substance, thin air, etc. In the case of a rock, it may not reply as a person would, but, it will 100% understand what the shaman is saying, and reply in its own way. This happens because we use the language of the Heart. It’s not the words we use, but rather the intention and emotions we are vibrating while communicating. The language of the Heart is Universal and supersedes in all your interactions, the proof is in the loving magical impulse that keeps your physical Heart beating. Life is an experience designed to develop your capacity for Love.

This is the simple explanation of why some people can be experiencing an apparent hell, while others are in bliss while here on this Earthly experience. It’s the perspective within which “Life” is approached. We, Shamans, understand that anything that can be defined or named can house a certain amount of consciousness (Spirit). If an object can have some consciousness, why not treat it with respect, consideration, even love? Imagine living in an environment where you are friends with everything around you and where everything around you likes you and wants to help you thrive.

Dealing with Misinformation

I was having a conversation with someone very dear to me and she mentioned that the array of negative news and obvious propaganda had her bogged down and feeling a sense of dread. I must admit, if not very self aware, I will also start to get affected by the blunt insults to our intelligence when I try to see the news. Everything is so polarized. I’ve tried looking very objectively at an event from two opposing networks and have gotten just as disappointed with both.

Because of my line of work, besides listening to what is being said, I also pay very close attention to how it is said, what words are repeated, which words are preferred and specially the rhythm of the overall message. In all of these parameters current information outlets fail for me. Shamanism teaches us that all environments will naturally reflect a balance within their flow. Learn to observe the flow and the true essence of an ideal, intent, rhetoric or action will triumphantly emerge. If you observe the flow with which news are pumped out, it is clear that larger structures behind the facade of the words uttered are dealing with a gigantic lack of stability.

The “fear” being sold to the masses is the reflection of what is really going on behind the scenes in upper, inner circles within previously untouchable industries. It’s happened many times before in history. It’s a subdued type of indirect threat. An “either or” scenario with “fear” as the lever.

Shamanism proposes that “Truth” is an interpretation based on your experience; and not a piece of information shared through someone else’s communication. Shamans, tend to be very fair people, so we consider what others call as “facts” with as much seriousness as scientists and politicians, respect our shamanic beliefs. Sounds about fair, right? If not, how can there possibly be a balance flow of information between people that do not wish to participate in each others experience.

Shaman Flavio is Interviewed by Dany Ross

A few weeks ago I received a very exciting invitation to interview with Dany Rousseleau from Canada. On the agreed day, I thought I’d be the one sharing some wisdom, but after we finished shooting, it was Dany that left me with many priceless insights. You see, Dany is a lung cancer survivor, and it was this experience that eventually ushered her to a new awareness for life.

She shared with me that the most difficult moments in one’s life happen for us and Not to us. In our darkest experiences, no matter how terrifying or hopeless, at no point are we victims. Tough situations happen to move us forward, to help us evolve and become stronger. This is a process that will force us to experience our vulnerabilities and will humble us to the point of breaking our ego.

It’s in these life changing moments that the ego needs to be surpassed in order to connect with the more solid aspects of our selves. In these unique dark moments legitimate hope, faith and inner strength can be found to transmute us into becoming a being of empathy, joy and positive purpose.

This realization was so powerful for Dany, that she made it her goal to share with all of us stories about people that have gone through that intense Path (myself included) and survived to a new awakening.

This is my interview with Dany Ross

Inner Alchemy and Disoriented Emotions

Imagine being able to hone in on an undesirable emotion or thought and to transform it into a success oriented force for the rest of your life. If this process was taught to all young adults, our world would be cleansed in one generation. Shamanism teaches us to do just this.

The first requirement is to be centered, this means take a moment and acknowledge, where you physically are and who you are now. Next, to stop the inner chatter and just pay attention to inner impulses. We are looking for that emotion, idea or thought that feels pressing. There may be many, but we are just focusing on one. We are literally stopping everything in our external world to pay attention to this vibration and we are being inquisitive as we do this. We are looking for its origin, purpose, intensity, duration, etc. Your intuition will kick in and other thoughts and memories will come into play, just take mental notes of these. At some moment you’ll feel very acquainted with this vibration. Probably after years, you’ve finally “stopped” and literally listened to it. This is the moment where you can dictate what happens next. You can reason with this thought process and decide on a new course of action or support to and from it. It’s a symbiosis. You literally talk to your self (whispering is fine too), addressing yourself in the plural and create a new course of action or focus. There is one condition in this part of the process, the “solution” must be compliant with the good for all law.

You are incredibly powerful and possess a universally sovereign free-will. Through your attention and intention, internal energies can be constantly redirected towards a desired outcome. This practice does require a little getting used to because it does not allow for a mechanical, repetitive life style. Actually, quite the opposite, it requires being fully present in your life at most times, but…this is a wonderful thing in itself!

Your Life Story with Courage

This is one of the symbols that represent the Heart (Sonqo) in Andean Cosmology.

In Shamanism, we all have a story and we also always have four virtues the story should comply with as best as possible. The virtues are linked to the four cardinal directions in the compass:

  • East = Wisdom: This is solely based on your personal life experiences
  • South = Courage: This is the courage to admit you may be wrong
  • West = Harmony: Choosing to live and be happy with enough (no more, no less)
  • North = Justice: All events and situations are justified because of the previous three virtues

It is easy to adopt a victim role in your story. Who you are today may be the result of something that happened long ago because someone did you wrong. You may have been promised an outcome and they never came through. Maybe an unexpected situation (usually tragic) happened and it completely derailed the perfect life you were meant to have. I could go on and on. The point for me as a Shaman is that when I hear this in any story, the main character, lacks courage.

This doesn’t mean you are a coward, although I have used that word in the past. It means, your power across time and space has been granted to something or someone else. It doesn’t matter what happened, the moment you assume complete ownership of the outcome and re-write the story, your full soul power activates for you to forge on. It takes great courage to admit that a few decades back you were lazy, disorganized, ungrateful, greedy, jealous, weak, selfish, scared, conniving, arrogant, immature, inconsiderate, etc. I have yet to meet someone that hasn’t been one of the above or a variation of one at some point in their life. We shamans, don’t see courage as something related to a hero. It’s far more familiar to us, we see it as an intrinsic component of everyday healthy living.

In our aggressively global society the word “failure” is such a taboo. Just think of world leaders when they make a mistake and the admirable creative rhetoric they go through to avoid this word or its undeniable factuality (sadly in their fields of existence, the lack of courage is still tolerated). For the evolved human admitting failure represents great courage, expansion and clarity. It immediately, frees you from an imaginary external power and at the same time it disarms energetic bonds from the past and possible ones in the future.

An amazing thing happens when you edit your story with failures included in them. As time progresses, those difficult moments from the past become allies that provide you amazing wisdom and harmony in your purpose. With time, not only do you learn to love your story but you develop the wisdom to recognize when you can avoid a pitfall or are in the middle of one and how to deal with it. The sense of helplessness in no longer there and is fully replaced by a sense of courage, empowerment and even adventure!

The Solution to all Problems

My apprentices usually get stuck in the explanation of the way a shaman sees cause and effect. Where modern society through laws, apps, services, medicines, etc. addresses effects. Shamanism trains the mind to understand that all effects have a cause and that this in itself will become an effect for another cause.

All problems will have originated somewhere. Understanding the origin allows the mind to see possibilities hidden by previous suppositions. Any problem you face will originate from your personal experience. It has to because this is your life, dictated by your choices from moments so long ago, you can no longer remember them. To understand why that problem is there, spend a little time in looking objectively at your personality. We tend to have recurring situations in the same areas of our lives. This is no coincidence, it is effects to causes we have repeated with our choices.

We are not looking for something to change, but rather to change ourselves from within. If a situation does not affect you the same way it has before, then that energy is no longer fulfilling its purpose and thus can no longer remain in your life (field). All problems are like friends trying to tell us something. The moment your mind shifts to cooperating with this mechanism. Life and all the problems we think we may have suddenly become a conversation about improving our inner qualities.

Life is a state where we can use the time to become a better being on a moment to moment basis, fully based on our choices. Think for a minute how life would drastically change all around the planet if the sole focus was goodness and worthy causes only. Philosphers call this study: Axiology. (term first coined by Paul Lapie in 1902) Waking up everyday knowing that life may have its challenges no longer becomes a burden, but rather a purpose. An opportunity to transmute into a more evolved being.

Keeping an Eye on your Phone and Habits

The energetic implications of power to seek information and connect globally from a device that is with you at all times, has ushered human consciousness in ways the ancients would tip their hats at. Current society “sells” an idea of how reality is, but this is quickly realized incorrectly with a little mystical training or an existential experience. For the older generations, the ones that have lived the quick transition in technology this reality shift has been gradual. For the younger generations that arrived to a world that portrays a reality based on these handheld devices, perception can become unrealistic. “Hucha” in Andean Shamanism, is the name given to any dense chaotic energy within one’s realm. If this energy is left unchecked, with enough time, it will grant access to more complex and destructive manifestations in one’s life.

This is why we have so many young people in the prime of their life with emotional conflicts. I’ll just take a quick opportunity to also include that I suspect this is the reason “Hollywood” likes to include a rebellious teen in all their shows. A shaman does not accept unhappiness as a stage in life. The idea of parents not knowing what to do as their kids act out, or worse cocoon themselves in despair, honestly, is a direct failure on our social acceptances.

The solution is to recognize patterns of habitual activities and the emotional states they produce (energy). If undesired, then balancing elements need to be added. For Shamans, humans are dualistic beings. We experience night/day, cold/hot, up/down, active/passive, etc. Seek these patterns in your household. It’s okay for certain periods to have predominance in one end of the scale, but if emotional discord starts becoming habitual then it’s time to balance the energy.

Anytime we work with balance, we work with flow. Very often the problem does not originate where it manifests, but actually in conditions leading to it or conditions that are a consequence of it. Stagnant energy hates change. We can observe this process set in with our elders. In shamanism, we use natural opposites to reset the harmony. In other words, for a short determined period, we will purposely behave in a disorganized, even chaotic way just to break a toxic cycle. This disrupts the stagnancy and allows energy to flow through its natural course again. Think of it as temporarily disrupting a river’s path and then just allowing it to naturally find its way downhill to the ocean again. Mother Nature is always in balance and always perfect. Most of humanity’s afflictions are cause by a disruption of what is natural. Try this with you schedule, toxic relationships, unwanted habits, thoughts, etc.

News Flash of Hate

A few days ago I noticed a sense of anxiety around me. Immediately, I stopped and went within to see where this was originating. The result was a pessimistic view of the political stage in the world. Next, I asked myself why I thought this way and it was the information I had been consuming, mainly from the news. I have stopped listening to the news since and that sense of anxiety is no longer.

As I write this, I can remember the word “Hate” being repeated so many times by most newscasters. I find this incredibly questionable, almost conspiratorial. I don’t wish a life to anybody that constantly contains the vibration of hate. Can it really be that there are others that hate others all over the world constantly? Is that News? How do they even gauge that? Why do I need that information?

I do understand that there are different strong opinions and preferences within the peoples of the world. I further discern this can lead to intense emotions between individuals and groups, including one self. What I disagree with is the intrusive conclusion that the actual emotion and motive of people in a controversial position is “Hate”. This rhetoric is useless for an educated audience. I can’t but consider that there could be more subversive motives to constantly regurgitate this idea out. Whatever world view these people are selling, it’s just not the reality I am surrounded by. It’s not the world I am contributing to create.

Love vs. Want

So many wasted opportunities with our loved ones, just because at some collective unconscious moment we bought into the idea that: “It was Not enough”. Not enough security, not enough sex, not enough youth, not enough fitness, not enough money, etc. It’s just an idea, I can prove it right now. You reading this means you have enough to be doing what you want; right now. In Shamanism, Life is what happens as you learn. We arrive to this world and forget where we come from and also forget what we are here for. It wasn’t like this in ancient times. It’s not like this in traditional cultures that are still connected to Pachamama (Mother Earth).

Mother Earth loves us and she constantly provides for us. A less mature behavior is to “Want”. Wanting is demanding, it just wants to consume and does not stop to think that more is not necessarily better and that it does not bring happiness. Improvement is better, and it can only happen in a harmonious environment. Harmony means that the whole is synchronized in combination and simultaneously. In this Reality, we are always physically surrounded by sentient beings and all is connected. All must be in harmony or all is not well at some level.

It is an impossibility to be happy when the focus is more for yourself and less for others. Mother Earth is simply not designed to accommodate that behavior here. The lack of harmony will manifest in some other factor that will directly affect you; usually something to do with lack of Love (or self love) in your life.

Enough is when everyone around you can be within a state of Dignity. Just the ones around you, especially your loved ones. No need to worry and take special efforts over others in some distant land, this is another trick our minds pull in order to avoid dealing with what’s in front of us. Just vibrating justified and loving behaviors around you is enough to harmonize your environment. This creates a domino effect where others will do the same and before long we will have Heaven on Earth!
