Listening to Life

One of the first concepts I teach when training Shamanic Apprentices is to re-understand the nature of Reality. Things are not as solid as they appear to be. However the energy that emanates from them is. This means that you will always “See the signs” before you experience the Reality. You will “feel” the ghost, before it can borrow from your consciousness to appear to you.

We can use this same dynamic for the Lessons life will provide to help us grow. People, places and situations will “Feel” uneasy before the real obstacle or issue appears. Animals in the wild are magnificent at demonstrating this. A bird will stop, look around and fly away if it “feels” something is not right.

Because we have the luxury of Free Will, we can become blinded by that desire to move in a direction we “want”. Very often my clients get very frustrated because they are not getting the results they want. For me, in those circumstances it is a matter of looking for the “signs” so we can understand what Life is really trying to tell us.

Here are a few things to be on the look out for:

  • Somehow always being late or delayed when trying to get to a specific place
  • Pests showing up when you go to a specific spot
  • Arguments happening in a specific location you frequent
  • Any sort of object that falls accidentally and shatters
  • Tripping on anything while being in a specific location
  • Encountering a very angry or rude person
  • Seeing the same image and/or the word describing the image more than twice
  • losing a personal object in the company of someone or in place
  • Pets getting hurt or sick in any way
  • Any mild health discomfort before or after having spent time with someone
  • A computer virus or any appliance breaking down

We project a protective energy field all around us, so when unusual events occur it can mean that an intrusive vibration is entering that field. It will start revealing itself through signs such as the ones I shared above.

I just Saw Something in my Physical Reality, Was it a Sign?



For the Shaman, the “other” side is reality and this physical existence is the illusion. In the Mystery Schools, one of the first Laws learned is, “As Above so Below…”. This by the way is a Law that also applies in a physical level. For example, in Traditional Chinese Medicine it is a fact that your face will show the conditions of your organs, or a child’s behavior will exhibit signs of the condition inside the household, or in a corporation customer service will reflect the philosophy of the company, etc. But going back to the physical signs, the short a plain answer is “Yes”, anything that happens in your external world is reflecting something of equivalent energy occurring in your internal world. With some invested contemplation one can tell it is pretty much the “Law of Attraction”.

Let’s say, you walk out your door and across the street you see a dog chasing a cat, sounds irrelevant right? But, let’s reconsider that you came out at that exact intersection of time and space to witness that small surge of energy happening at a safe distance; this is the Law of Attraction in action. What could it mean? Well, here is where people get logical and analytic. I won’t waste your time giving examples of things that a logical person may think; instead just observe the energy that you witnessed, and what emotions it slightly aroused, think and remember what dogs, cats and chases may/could represent in your unique life experience. Do that for a few seconds and then let it go and continue with your everyday affairs. Later on if curiosity visits you again, ponder on what it could have meant. Two things will occur, you will either not get it at all, in which case, know/trust that another message with a similar energy signature will arrive soon. The other alternative is that you will be pretty certain of the meaning of what you witnessed, in that case write it down and implement it immediately. No matter what the perceived message, it is crucial that it be implemented immediately, this is because you are honoring the contact and you are acting on faith in your intuition, these intentions are noted on the other side and are used later on for more direct communications. This same principle can be used for dreams.

This is why many of us when we want to receive an answer for a healing or service or a simple question, we just take a walk in nature. we acknowledge the landscapes, rocks, plants, animals and any happenings. Once something attracts our attention, now we know it’s time to grasp the loving message and implement it immediately. This is also why we Shamans can be of such assistance, because as you relate your stories and what you have witnessed to us, we can tune in to your vibration and translate something that cannot be understood logically. Remember, if you have any doubts, you can always make a comment and I’ll gladly assist.

May you always be aware of the constant Loving communication emanating from The Great Mystery…
