Energy saturation, or Mother Earth’s full…

A few years back, while studying for and achieving the Karuna ReikiĀ® Teacher/Master level, I had the honour and pleasure to meet up with a shaman from the Micmac nation. We spent the evening sharing stories and experiences (strange how they all seemed similar, same school, different teacher I guess) and at one point he “read” a crystal I’ve been carrying for some time.

This crystal is of the type that’s known as a record-keeper and a transmitter of information.

While he was reading this piece of crystal, he was told to give me a message, which I’m to pass on to all and any light/engergy workers out there that care to listen.

Mother Earth is full, she can’t take anymore.

This would apply to the practice we all have of either shaking off the “bad” or excess energy we may take off a client, or to the concept of sitting on the ground on your backside and connecting that way to drain off your bad or overflowing vibes.

She can’t take it anymore, and would really appreciate it if we could send the energy upward for a while….

I suppose if one were to look at some of the natural disasters of late, you could see the similarity between Mother Earth and say, maybe a big dog that’s got a little too much pent up energy. Eventually there comes a shake and all the energy, or pests…. goes flying off.

So to speak. And in retrospect (looking at weather conditions and such over the last few years) I have to say she’s been reacting and no one’s really been listening.

Go hug a tree, raise your arms and hands to the skies. Let it go up. There’s loads of space up there.

Take from this what you will.

I’m only telling you what I was told.

Altering your vibration

Over the years I have started to take exception with the undeniable fact that a lot of shamanic work seems to almost focus on the use of consciousness altering substances, needless to say natural.
I’m not in complete agreement with the idea.

First off, to clear up a misconception.
I’m always hearing people talk about “doing ‘shrooms and going to the shaman for a trip, dude…” The fact is, the “patient/client” doesn’t “do” any of the substances. That’s the vehicle of the shaman, so there’s no sharing or party here.

I feel that to make a connection, a real strong, CLEAN connection with that divine vibration that we are seeking, you can’t alter your waves through artificial means. Once you do that, you’re not in control of the situation, no matter what anyone may say. (And yes, I’m speaking from experience here)

I’ve read Castaneda and all that pertinent stuff, and I went down that path many moons ago, and as much as it does make the journey a little faster, as I said, it’s not real. Your vibration, your wave, call it what you wish, has been altered, and it’s not stable, therefore it’s not operating at its’ peak potential.

I see it sort of like this.
If you can’t perceive without the aid of artificial means, first off, you’re not ready to be there, and second, you probably don’t deserve to go on the journey, which often leads to a bad experience. The people that work with energy all know the wisdom on the other side of the veil is pretty all-encompassing.
They seem to know what’s what and who belongs there.

Sorry if that was a bit of proselytizing…
I continually hear people go on about the necessity for Mother Nature’s assistance, eg: hallucinogens, in doing energy work and working natural magick, and I don’t buy into it anymore.
Not with what I’ve seen/witnessed/experienced.

We’re all amazing, energetic beings capable of healing ourselves and others, and in this time which is making that fact more and more apparent, I think it may be the time to heighten peoples’ awareness that psycho-actives aren’t really necessary, as much fun as they may be.

As I’m sure you’re aware, the only reason psychoactive herbs cause any sort of reaction is the toxin that’s creeping into the system. I think when people realize that it’s a poison they’re ingesting, (and I realize that’s taking it a stretch for someone who enjoys their magic mushrooms), they will eventually look at things in a slightly clearer light.

….or not.

Inside the Cloud Gate.

Blessings all…
