Hello All! Well, I’ve finally come to a place where I can begin traveling. My intention is to explore the US and visit as many different spiritual places and reservations as I can. I am in search of interviews from the wisdom keepers and elders for my documentary, “Ancestors Return.” I also will be traveling town to town in search of the spiritual communities within them and offering ceremonies and Shamanic Life Coaching presentations, by donation. Along the way as I am all settled in the campground next to a peaceful campfire, I will be making leather crafts and posting them for sale to help fuel old White Eagle (my truck). My journey began september 1st 2017 at Powell Springs. I have my trusty travel buddy “Red” (a stuffed mountain lion) with me. So far, it has been an amazing journey, mostly looking inward which would explain why a black bear gently walked past camp this morning. I am realizing that I still have a lot of fears and I look forward to facing them on this journey. Black Bear Seek meditation and introspection, balance activities with rest, remember to play, allow any darkness you discover to teach you a lesson.
I finally set up and launched the online school EMSHA where I offer the Shamanic Life Coach certification course that includes all the spiritual teaching of what I’ve learned over the years on my spiritual journey. Twenty two amazing students and counting. It has been my heart’s desire to teach this and still be able to travel.
As always I will be offering private phone session by donation for those seeking healing and guidance on their journey, just call or email me anytime 🙂
Well here goes, thank you for being with me and I will be posting updates along the way!
Had to share this… this is bigger than just one day of prayer, but we’ve got to start somewhere!
There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life. ∼ JOHN LENNON
- Become aware when you are being triggered.
- Put a name on it. Label it.
- How am I being like this to others or what can I learn from this?
- Own it, take responsibility and work through it.
In the past, when someone would do or say something that upset me or made me feel anxiety, fear, unheard, unseen, angry or frustrated, I would react and complain or get defensive.
Now that I better understand the concept of me creating my own reality and other people are just mirrors and reflections of me, I can take ownership and responsibility for my emotions.
They are ultimately there to help me learn, grow, and have a better understanding.
Now, instead of getting all pumped up when something like this happens, I just breathe and notice how I feel. So essentially, I am bringing awareness to the moment.
Then I have the opportunity to either give my power away or keep it, react or respond. If I react to the situation with anger, fear, or whatever, then I am giving my power away. This could cause an argument or power struggle. This is the part of my ego who feels hurt and only wants to be right, to be seen, heard, noticed, appreciated and so on.
Alternatively, if I look at it and call it out (gently), then I am responding to it. In this way I am able to feel the emotion run through my body yet remain calm and collected. No need to become defensive. This does not mean to become passive either. It’s just a neutral, safe place to stay in during the growth process.
Next I go within myself to see where I might be doing that to others. Usually it not so easily discovered but if I look deep enough, and am willing to accept the idea that I may be doing that to others, then my ego is exposed and the beauty of it is revealed!
The next step is to work with it as I move forward. Be gentle with myself as I practice the new way of responding.
There are many different aspects and situations that can come from this concept and I look forward to the challenge!
So at this meeting today, a few of us gathered around a beautiful rug to do a golden light meditation. I could help but notice this particular pattern in the rug. It looks like people in a canoe. LOL
So the message I got was there is or will be some movement happening soon. It will involve others or be assisted by others moving toward the same goal. Just recently, I switched my thinking from, “I can do it by myself,” to “I need help from others.” Maybe this a confirmation of that. 🙂
As you may know… last September 2016, I decided to delete my Facebook account. It was for more than the reasons I listed. About two years ago I started receiving messages from what I call “The Ancestors.” The Ancestors, to me, are of any past relation of Native American descent. They recently told me to get off of all social media, that it was changing us. See article below…
Then in July 2017, I started to realize that I was missing many opportunities to…
- Promote the new launch of EMSHA
- Read articles from friends
- Get notified about local events
- Connect with family
- Connect with the community
- Be the change Facebook needs
- and more.
So why did I ever got off in the first place? I became lost in the newsfeed, drowning in fear generated by negative posts, afraid of being judged, poor me’s, inauthenticity and political hype.
New guidance to get back on… Now I will look at it from a new perspective and a higher vibration. Not coming from a place of judgment, ego and needing to be noticed and accepted in society, but rather from a place of passion, responsibility, and purpose. To have fun, play, enjoy and to not take everything so seriously!
And why I am getting back on? I am going back on Facebook to be a beacon of light, to spread positive energy and share my passion and teachings. To help raise the vibration and create a more peaceful place to carry out my earthwalk.
So now I look forward to this new journey, connecting with old friends and having fun! https://www.facebook.com/rebekah.simpson.731
