“Facing Your Own Circle of Truth:
Stepping into the Center of Your Special Wheel of Life with Great Spirit”
A 4-Week Online Course with
Shaman Teacher Lynn Andrews
November 7 – December 4, 2013
is about discovering
the magical design within you and
welcoming the Great Spirit into your hut as
you learn the shamanic principle of yielding to your
own power in the face of seemingly insurmountable resistance to
everything you have ever believed and held to be sacred and special in life.
There is a magical design of energy within each person that is absolutely and completely unique. That magical design is at the heart of your own personal power. It holds your personal truth and integrity in life.
When you yield to the design that is within you, you truly step into your own center of power and personal truth. You stop being who someone else says you should be and you stop doing what others expect you should do when it goes against everything you believe to be true and truly you. You also stop living in the ego mind, which is more concerned with what other people say and think, anyway. And most importantly, you learn to move with what I call the "is-ness" of existence: you learn how to become one with the river instead of constantly feeling like you have to ‘paddle upstream’ just to keep your head above water.
"Yielding to your own personal power" is a very difficult concept to assimilate. It is also a powerful, balancing and healing shamanic teaching. There is huge resistance in our world today, globally as well as in almost any aspect of our own lives. It is true that there is much in the world that doesn’t really work very well for most people. But what happens is that we end up resisting everything, even things that are really good for us and part of our own design for life, because how do we know what to trust, especially when we do try to do something and life pushes back?
There is a fundamental truth in life that you are either moving forward or you are moving backwards. Even when you are in a period of shaman rest, finding the still point within or hibernating as you sit with the Great Spirit to review where you have been and where you are going next as you replenish your energy for the task at hand, you never just sit in stasis. What do you do when you suddenly discover that you are stuck not because life is pushing back at you but because you are the one who is resisting moving forward in your life?
This Course is designed to show you how to discover your own magical design and move beyond the resistance and vagaries of the world around and within you as you give life to your own magical design. In this Course, I will:
- Show you how to discover the magical design within you and know that it is true;
- Take you on a journey to the time before time where you will meet with great Masters of Enlightenment and explore your core essence, the core of your most original and superior nature, which is different for everyone, and what you came into this life to learn;
- Introduce you to the sacred tones of the Four Directions so that you can discover the gifts of personal power within the tones that most resonate within you;
- Show you how to become open and receptive to the truth and power that are already within you, which we are conditioned virtually from the day we take our first independent steps to doubt and even dismiss completely;
- Drum and tone with the forces of light in the Universe and become one with them.
- And you will create or complete your Beauty Wind Spirit Doll. This Doll is a very sacred way of beginning to manifest into physical form your true essence.
Stories are never written about people who struggle to live within the confines of their ordinary vision. In these courses, we push the envelope. We challenge ourselves each day to become more of the person we know we can be, to shine our light a little brighter within ourselves and out into the world through everything that we touch.
I invite you to join me and the beautiful circle of kindred souls from all over the world that is our Online Course Community on a truly extraordinary journey into the wonder and the mystery, the power and the brilliance of the person you are.
In love and spirit,
We will be continue our work with our shaman drums in this Course. If you do not have a small drum, there are many resources on the internet where you can purchase one at very little cost. We have a long-standing relationship with Cedar Mountain Drums, www.cedarmtndrums.com/index.htm, and Falling Feather Creations (write them at Fallingfeathercreations@yahoo.com).
You do not have to have taken an earlier Course in this series to register for and participate fully in this Course. The teachings of each Course are carefully designed to be full and complete within that Course and will include any earlier material that is necessary for the work of this Course.
As darkness comes, the mirrors of your spirit reflect different images. It is the time when the world changes and your being begins to glow. Reflect on the new vision that has been living on the perimeter of your consciousness. An idea is stalking you and awaits your invitation, a place within you to begin life. The totality of your creativity comes after you have begun your work on the sacred painting of your life. It is then that the muses of inspiration surround you like eagles and cheer you on to illumination. Take responsibility for your work and your life, and then illumination will follow.
