The 100 Day Reality Challenge

First off, I want to thank my dear companion for sharing the "How You Can Heal Your Life" movie from youtube last night. Last night I had a lot of extra work to do, but having all this positive reinforcement in the background worked wonders! She then demonstrated to me her own powerful positive manifestations today, so many synchronicities that I couldn't believe it! This stuff really does work everyone! 

 

Now, a lot of you have been asking about what a Shamanic Journey is. I am still new to this spiritual path, but it has helped to bring me a lot of self-insight and self-love. The idea of the Shamanic Journey is to connect your spirit with the Otherworld, to gain further insight into your soul and physical reality. You can achieve this state in many ways, but the method I use is to listen to a specific set of drumming tracks at a montonous tone to put you into a trance-like state. This state is very much like a Lucid dream, where you have control, yet you don't at the same time. Also, most who embark on this encounter a spirit guide or power animal to lead them through the journey. Since I am still a beginner, not yet a teacher, I shall just begin by briefly summarizing my experiences.

 

Every journey, you enter in with a specific intent or question. On your first journey, you usually say that "I wish to find my spirit guide" or animal guide. To enter this state, I layed flat on the floor, with a rug underneath me and a pillow behind my head. I turned off all the lights, and started playing a drumming track from my computer, wearing headphones and cloth over my eyes to engulf myself. The first journey, I entered into the underworld, this is usually where the animal guides can be found. To get there, I imagined an entrance into a cave that I once visited. I first took time to take in the scenery around me before I entered. Then, as I descended I looked and felt the cave walls, feeling it in my mind as well as constructing it. I kept focus on my intent on finding my spirit guide. I encountered one creature who lead me to a giant Snake, who has been helping guide me ever since. From here, the journey took off as my guide taught me lessons on life, mainly that I needed to relax and loosen up. The journey continued, until the drumming track slowed, and I could hear whistles calling me back to physical reality. The snake then guided me back up to the surface, and I awakened with new wisdom. 

 

Now there are many ways you can have your journey, this was my own experience, and if you are interested, feel free to contact me or check out some books I have listed below to find more on your own. It is very similar to meditation, in that you will often have your mind wander, or thoughts might break you out of the trance, but just let them pass and re-enter it. Another thing that is a challenge is accepting that yes, you are constructing this, but you are also being lead for a specific reason. Do not dwell on the parts of the journey that you construct, the important part of this journey are the feelings of wisdom you gain from it. This is a different world then our own with different laws. In fact, you have complete freedom, and you can create absolutely anything you wish. Something that you can translate into your real life as well. It also can take time until your mind adjusts to the spirit world, but I find that the longer I remain, the less I can feel of my own body in this physical world, and the more I feel it in the spiritual world. 

 

I hope this was a decent explanation of everything, feel free to ask me any questions if you have any. 

 

Awakening to the Spirit World by Sandra Ingerman and Hank Wesselman - this is the one that includes the drumming CD I use. Fantastic work!

I do not know much about Ayahuasca but I know that Shamans in some cultures will take hallucinogenics or do other methods to put their bodies into an extreme state to gain access to the spiritual world. This is not necessary, but in tradition this is how some travel.  It is called a Journey, I believe, because your guides take you on a journey through another world to teach you lessons.

Thank you for share your experience, I really didn't know much about it. It sounds like a very interesting thing to try. About shamanism I have heard just a few, I know about one thing they drink called ayahuasca, this is to travel to another level of consciousness and a lot of person that have tried it always see animals in their experiences, I'm not sure if they do as a form of spiritual guides. And maybe comparing I could guess you are reaching deep levels with this practice.

Why is it called shamanic journey?

Thank you for sharing the links!

My guide speaks to me with telepathy and also through body language. The otherworld is really a world where you are spoken to with feeling, and abstractions rather than direct communication.

If you don't feel like it was done, then it really isn't done for you yet. I have read that we can have many different guides during our lifetime, and I don't feel like travelling to the otherworld is ever something you stop doing. Perhaps you could try and return and see if you can find a new guide to teach you!
