As a child I spent many hours each day in nature. Even today, my day does not feel complete until I have spent some time with the Nature Spirits. I believe there are two sources of spirit power: nature (physical) and the spirit world (dream time and non-ordinary reality). It is the spirits that facilitate spirit power. Therefore, people need to get to know some spirit helpers and to develop good relationships with them. One of a Shamanic Teacher's most important functions is to teach people spiritual social skills, so their souls can be filled with spirit power - the more the better.
In our modern world, we have been led to believe that humans are at the summit of creation. In cultures where shamanism is practiced, humans see themselves as allies of the natural world rather than its rulers. By choosing to live in harmony with the natural world, humans can redress the imbalances on this earth
I was given the name of Cedar Woman during a naming ceremony by an Ojibwe woman in Canada.
I have been practicing and learning about living life in a shamanic way for 25 years.
