Death Process for the Living

It seems as though I’m becoming an “expert” in Shamanic Death. However reluctant. Shamanic Death is a process of Ego Death wherein everything you know yourself to be, the things you identify with/as, the role(s) you play, the archetype you embody, must die. When this occurs, life is changing on the most profound levels. People leave Job/career change Health challenges No longer enjoying the things you used to love Feelings of uncertainty The systems and structures you once counted on, fail you You recognize ingrained behaviors and patterns and how they’ve directed your choices Sometimes this death process comes as a result of graduation, divorce, birth, the passing of a loved one, menopause, and more. But, that’s not always the case. There are times when we are being called to the next, new expression or iteration of ourSelves. When we must relinquish all that we’ve held dear. When we let go of our entire fucking identity. We may even have mastered our identity/archetype/expression/understanding of ourselves so much that it colors our perspective and how we interact with all of life. It’s our zone of excellence. But, the Universe calls us out. It beckons us into our zone of Genius. It asks more from us. It needs us to show the fuck up in our lives.

Step Outside the Matrix to THRIVE!

You have so much untapped potential inside you! Dear One, It may be summer time, but life is super busy, super crazy – everyone’s rushing around taking care of all the things! Does that sound about right? Ugh. I say NO. That’s not right at all. That’s no way to live a fulfilling life. Society is not set up to help you thrive. It’s set up to make sure you “follow the rules”, that you’re a good little cog in the government/corporate machine, that you’re a good little consumer unit – buying, spending, busy – all while working hard to pay for it all. Staying busy keeps you from paying attention to what truly matters in life, insuring that you’re too wrapped up in all the things you “should” do. When you’re that busy and distracted, the government/corporate Machine continues to indoctrinate you, sneaks behind everyone’s backs with detrimental policy-making, destroying the environment, and exercising “Power Over” the people. If you’ve ever seen the movie The Matrix, then you’ve had a glimpse into this world of illusion that only works to serve the government, the institutions, bureaucracies and the very wealthy. Here’s what I know to be True (with a capital T) – You absolutely DO NOT have to live inside the Matrix and, Life gets MUCH BETTER when you stop following “the rules” I’m not saying you should disobey laws, hurt yourself or others, or go completely AWOL. (though sometimes that has a nice ring to it – like becoming an ex-pat.) What I AM saying is that there are so many choices available to you that you...
