What is Shamanism?

http://reikishamanic.com/2011/01/30/grande-smudge-kit/

When I am asked what I do for a living most people look at me blankly if I say I am a shaman. Times have changed, gone are the days when everyone knew what shamans were. A long-ago time when every village/tribe respected and relied upon the skills of a medicine person (one of many names …Continue reading

Healing Horse, ©Rose De Dan www. ReikiShamanic.com

I awoke on this long-dreaded inauguration day of a 45th President of the United States (whose platform I do not support), with the joyful memory of a powerful dream.

Spirit is the Leader: Prayers for Standing Rock

At #NoDAPL protest at Standing Rock a burning white sage smudge bundle is left at the feet of police.

This summer I had a personal experience involving poisoned water that caused me to be much more aware and grateful for the blessings of water every single day.

There were times that I had no running water (and that was not fun), but the absolute worst was when the water became highly toxic and vile tasting due to chemical leaching. I could not assuage my own thirst, that of my animals, or indoor or outdoor plants using water from the tap. We existed on bottled drinking water for weeks until the water could be tested and declared safe.

So when the protests camps at Standing Rock began coming to my attention I was personally in support of the mission of the water protectors, for in protecting water we protect All Our Relations (which includes us). …Continue reading
