What is Shamanic Journeying

What is Shamanic Journeying?

"Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished." - Lao Tzu

Welcome back wild ones! I’ve got to ask you to take a moment. Close your eyes, breathe deeply, and feel the pulse of our wondrous Earth Mother beneath your feet. Yes, feel it. There’s a raw, invincible connection between her and your own beautiful soul—a tangible, nurturing link that’s always ready to guide you, heal you, and empower you. Now, isn't that stunning?

There’s a practice that can help you deepen this connection—a sacred ritual that will empower and transform you in ways you’ve scarcely imagined. This, my kindred spirits, is shamanic journeying. WTF, you say? Hehe, stick with me!

What is Litha (Summer Solstice) and How Can You Celebrate

Understanding Shamanic Journeying

Shamanic journeying is an incredible method of reaching altered states of consciousness to connect directly with the spirit world. It's part of a long, beautiful tradition used by shamans and spiritual healers from cultures around the globe to gain insight, healing, and guidance. Think of it as a soulful adventure, traversing the various realms of existence.

There are three primary realms you can access:

  • Lower World: A realm of deep healing and intimate connection with nature. Here, you’ll often meet power animals who hold wisdom from the natural world. It's not a scary underworld, mate—it's a beautiful place of infinite connection.

  • Middle World: This is more aligned with our physical reality. It reflects the energy and essence of our world, allowing you to connect deeply with the spirits of plants, trees, and even the land itself.

  • Upper World: Ah, the realm of higher wisdom and enlightenment. Here resides celestial beings, spirit guides, angels, and ascended masters. It’s where the most wondrous and profound guidance can be found.

Why Journey into These Realms?

The reasons are as diverse as our tribe. Some journey for personal healing, to release old traumas or gain insights into life’s current challenges. Others seek spiritual growth and deeper connection with nature and the spirit realms. It's about empowerment, love; tapping into the strength and wisdom of your spirit allies to navigate life’s myriad journeys.

How to Embark on Your Magickal Journey

  • Set Your Intention: Like all sacred rituals, your journey begins with a clear intention. It could be a question, a problem you're seeking clarity on, or a desire to connect with a specific spirit guide or power animal. This intention will be your guiding light.

  • Enter an Altered State of Consciousness: Now, don’t let this freak you out. It’s simpler than it sounds. You can do this through breath work, meditation, chanting, or the rhythmic beats of drumming or rattling. These repetitive sounds shift your brainwaves into a theta state, opening your subconscious mind.

  • Visualise Your Portal: Get comfy, close your eyes, and visualise a portal or gateway that leads to one of the three spirit realms—lower, middle or upper world. It could be a cave, a hollow tree, a river, or even a beam of light. Trust your intuition and follow it.

  • Journey and Explore: As you step through this portal, let go of preconceived notions. Meet your guides, power animals, and other beings. Converse with them, ask questions, and receive the wisdom and healing they offer. Stay present and engaged.

  • Return and Ground Yourself: When your journey feels complete, retrace your steps back through your portal. Gradually bring yourself back to your normal state of consciousness, grounding yourself by touching the Earth, taking deep breaths, or drinking water.

  • Reflect and Journal: This is crucial. Capture your insights, feelings, and messages in a journal. Over time, you'll notice patterns and deeper themes that offer profound insights into your spiritual path.

Embrace the Mysteries

Shamanic journeying can be wondrously transformative. The benefits are vast—spiritual growth, healing of deep wounds, empowerment, and a soulful connection with the natural world. It’s a practice that invites you to explore the magick of life, to reflect deeply, and to embrace your inner wisdom and power.

Don't fret about misconceptions or fears. Journeying is safe and accessible to everyone. You don't need special gifts, nor do you need hallucinogens to journey. Use drumming, guided meditations, or your sheer willpower. And remember, your experience is uniquely yours. Trust it.

So, are you ready, beautiful soul? Ready to embark on this profound, whimsical, and empowering journey? Get comfy, set your intention, and step through your magickal portal. The ancient wisdom of our Earth Mother and spirit allies awaits.

Stay wild, stay curious, and trust in your wondrous capacity for transformation.

Stay cool,
