The power of your intent leads you around the sacred wheel of endeavor. Begin today with trust and innocence in the early hours. Imagine a quiet pond, and see the reflection of your true self. At noon take a moment to close your eyes and dream. Image the transformation that this day offers you. Seek the strength and wisdom, through your ability to love, to bring this transformation into action and into the words you speak. At night give thanks for the illumination you have found. Know that the form of your intent leads you to the power of transformation.
Definition of the Card: The painting is entitled Transformation. The pond represents the serenity of your unconscious mind and the rebirth of awareness in the west. The steps in the north of the painting lead to a sacred place of prayer and worship of the Great Spirit. Find a sacred sanctuary within the universe of your soul. The lotus blossoms represent your transformation beginning to bloom, and the doves of peace take the messages in your heart to the Great Spirit.
The term “shaman” comes from the Tungusic language of Siberia and is used for those priests and priestesses who know how to use energy to heal dis-ease and divine the hidden magic of the universe toward a higher purpose in life. Shamanism is a spirit-based way of knowing the Great Spirit and knowing life that has been followed by people across the world and throughout time.
There are many ways in the world and many paths. The important thing to remember is that we are of this time and of this soil. My role in life and my purpose in bringing you this ONLINE ACADEMY FOR SHAMANIC LEARNING is to provide a bridge between the ancient shamanic teachings of my teachers, the Sisterhood of the Shields, and those of you who are seeking higher knowledge along the shaman’s path, walking with one foot in the world of the physical and one foot in the world of spirit.
