Empathy and Empowerment


hand-meadowEmpaths feel deeply, and everything!  Sometimes you don’t know that you’re highly sensitive.  You grow used to staying out of crowds, finding ways to maneuver through life being mostly invisible, avoiding eye contact and conversations.  Some people would say you’re an introvert.  Sometimes you develop headaches or anxiety or depression that keep you down.

If you want more out of your life you can learn how to know which feelings are yours.  Discover a guide who is with you day and night, who helps you stand strong and not be banged around by outside influences. Powerfully put up and reinforce boundaries that allow you to be in the world and be happy.

Ancient shamanic tools are available to you. These methods are easily learned and you can align with a powerful personal guide who has your best interest in mind for your health and wellbeing.

In modern times finding a way to be alone and in silence becomes an art and a skill.  Taking time out no matter how old or young you are is important, knowing who you are and what is valid to your life and style becomes a life quest, but only if you are awake and aware.

So, how do you become alive, awake and aware? There is (in my opinion) no one way. And you are amazingly lucky. Technology has provided ways and means to learn without leaving the comfort of your home and family. With a click you can explore many ways to meditate, several styles of yoga and discover some different tribal shamans. By combining all the old ways you are blessed to find your own way.

The prescription for what ails you is varied and individual. This is not one-size-fits all but now, in this time, you are privileged to craft your own spirituality, one that is unique and just for you. This is not arrogant but resourceful and inspiring. No other person on the planet can do what you are here to do. No other person can be who you are meant to be or see the possibilities you can. Your mission is a creative, one-of-a-kind thing.

And right now, the planet needs you. So, dig deep, explore different styles of spirituality – some Christian, some Muslim, some Buddhist, some Pagan – see what it is that calls to you. Your way does not have to be predetermined by your ancestors, your neighbors or your creativity.  Step outside the box, push the envelope and develop a way that is compelling to you. Be selfish. Find your way.

Who knows? It may be a way that speaks to others, it may be a way that is easier to understand and easier to do regularly with better results. Who knows? Only you.

You are a unique, one-of-a-kind person. What works for me is shamanism. What works for you may be shamanism with a twist, that’s how new methods are discovered and adapted to a new world. If you do not do this no one will.

It is your birthright to be whole, happy and fulfilled. It is your birthright to find ways that work for you without shame, blame or guilt. So, if not now, then when? If not you then who? If I can help you then call, together you and I can craft your unique style. If not me then find someone with whom to walk this unique path. Everyone benefits from your unique style and ways of being.   Aho
