A shaman is a spirit walker who walks between the worlds and is ready to play an active and dynamic role in the restoration of harmony and balance to all people, places and things. A shaman creates order where there is chaos.
When the shaman undertakes the sacred commitment to maintain the balance and order within themselves, they become capable of bringing balance and order to the world. By following their true path, the shamans of the world are able to guide and lead others out of the darkness and into the light.
THE ORIGINAL FOUR-FOLD EXPRESSION OF SHAMANIC POWER
From the ancient times, shamans have worked with plant intelligence to facilitate personal transformation and access deeper levels of power and wisdom. In the modern world sacred ancient teacher plants from New Zealand have stepped forward to help shamans access the original four-fold expression of authentic shamanic power.
1. Shamanic Power – Personal Transformation
The first expression of shamanic power is associated with the personality. Working with shamanic teacher plant essences at this level enables the shaman to undergo profound personal transformation and acquire the necessary shamanic expertise for daily maintenance of their own personality. It also enables the shaman to develop the required understanding of the holistic healing capacities of each shamanic teacher plant so that they then are able to more effectively assist others on their healing journey.
2. Shamanic Power – Attaining Wisdom
The second expression of shamanic power is associated with the soul. The teacher plants that the shaman works with here are plants of a very high order that grow only in New Zealand and from ancient times have been associated with the deeper teachings of holistic healing and spiritual development. Because of their great wisdom, these shamanic teacher plants help the shaman to exponentially deepen their wisdom and spiritual insight. They help to facilitate more rapid soul growth and spiritual development that is not possible through any other practice. This enables the shaman to penetrate deeper into the great mysteries and attain exponentially higher levels of knowledge and wisdom.
3. Shamanic Power – Skill Acquisition
The third expression of shamanic power is associated with the spirit. Working with shamanic teacher plant essences provides a safe path of initiation. Each shamanic teacher plant essence represents a developmental stage that a person must pass through to acquire specific spiritual skills and disciplines. Each shamanic teacher plant supports a person to face and overcome the initiatory challenges that are milestones on the shaman’s path to oneness, self-mastery and enlightenment.
4. Shamanic Power – Planetary Transformation
The fourth expression of shamanic power is associated with planetary transformation, which has a transpersonal focus. This is the magical work that the modern-day shaman has an opportunity to participate in within the Medicine Woman Certificate in Shamanic Studies© program. It enables the shaman to play an active, intelligent and purposeful role in planetary transformation.
