In the Beginning...

I sat in the Sacred Circle and as I faced and welcomed the East, the word Origins came to me.

The East represents all that is new. The rising sun, the freshness of a New Day—these are the first steps...the beginning of unlimited possibility.

Think of the Circle; there is no recognizable beginning...and yet, at the point of the Circles Origin, that specific point is there...somewhere. It is somewhere in Time. It is somewhere in Space.

Pick up a pen or pencil and make a dot on a napkin. Within that moment, there is an Origin. Is it a dot, or could it be something far greater?

This is the power and the gift of Origins.

Let's Create!
Quote of the Month:
The nameless is the beginning of heaven and Earth.
The named is the mother of the ten thousand things.
Ever desireless, one can see the mystery.
Ever desiring, one sees the manifestations.
These two spring from the same source but differ in name; this appears as darkness.
Darkness within darkness.
The gate to all mystery.

Origin: The source of something's existence or from which it derives or is derived

Neelam and I have come to realize that for many folks, this is a time of new starts. It is a time of Origins. This, of course, leads me to some Food for Thought.
  • What is new with you? Where are you heading? Where are you going? What did you leave behind?
  • Are you driven by Free Will or is there an “External” Influence?
  • Where would you like to go? Where or what would you like to BE?
  • What is Originating within you at this moment?
  • Close your eyes and connect with the Universe within you...what is happening in there?
  • What have you originated?
  • What are your Origins? Where did you begin? Where do you begin?
  • How does the Origin of something bring about change in your Life?
  • Does Change bring an Origin to you?
For our Students:
Dreamers: Step into the picture above. What does this Dream inspire?
Ancestral Healers: Imagine you are high above the Realm of Ancestral Healing (South is at the bottom). What direction calls out to you? Visit it and see what happens!
Phoenix Risers: Shadow? Inner Child? Death? Explore that part which calls to you.
Shamanic students: A New World awaits! Go explore it! See and Learn what needs to originate within you!

One Year Shamanic Mentorship Program for 2016-2017

We are now accepting applications for our One Year Mentorship Program for 2016-2017. One Year Mentorship Program Registration is Open!

If you hear the Call of Spirit and are ready for a 24/7/365 walk on the Red Road, do look into this.

From the Storyteller
Once upon a Time, the germ of an idea came to me.
I let the germ grow, planting it in the soil of my imagination.
Like a good parent, I nurtured it. I allowed it to grow as I fed it and watered it and allowed it to take root and rise.
I tended to it; I listened to it; I allowed it to express itself.
And then, about a minute after it came to life, I sat down and wrote and allowed the germ to flourish.
I let its voice be heard. I allowed it to speak. It took shape, grew wings and flew, taking me with it.
And hence, today...I am.
