I just recently took a three-day workshop to further my spiritual learning and understanding. It was a sacred journey of transformation where I learned not only additional ways to heal myself, but to heal others. It was a true gift that I would like to share with you for Valentine’s Day.
Until now all of my spiritual learning as a lightworker has come from various religious teachings, angelic messages and my reiki studies, but this workshop ventured into a new arena for me, Shamanism. Deeper study revealed that by definition, shaminism is an anthropoloigcal term referencing a range of beliefs and pracitices regarding communication with the spirit world. So, in truth, a shaman and a lightworker are one in the same; both being guided by Divine Spirit to help and heal others. Shamanism encompasses many different cultures globally just as religion, but all stem from and lead back to a Divine Source.
I received my introduction to the shamanic way via the Munay-Ki, which are a series of 9 rites of initiation common to the shamanic tradition for someone who wishes to become a person of wisdom and power. Ki, as in Reiki, means Energy. Munay means Love. So true to my divine purpose as a Lightworker and as in most of my columns, I am once again talking about a love energy derived from a divine source that has the power to unify and heal. Although the Munay-Ki rites are fairly new and non- traditional and seem non-traditional, they are based upon the traditions of the Laika, or Light People, who now live in the Andes mountains of Peru but originated some 30,000 years ago when they emigrated from Siberia. Thus, the foundation for these rites of passage have been around for millenium.
Each rite attunement is a transmission of an energetic seed transferred via a shaman’s loving intention into your luminous energy field with the purpose to heal and transform all past physical and psychological traumas imprinted within your energy field, so that emotional healing can begin. The rites also connect you to a lineage of luminous beings, past and present, as well a lineage of master healers, archangels and 7 specific Archetypes which are transmitted into each major chakra. These Archetypes are organizing principles of the Universe, so that we may begin to organize our own energy centers and lives with specific purpose. A few examples are:
- The Serpent, representative of healing, who teaches us to shed our personal past as a snake sheds her skin and connects us to the primary feminine life force who knows the way into the deepest places inside of ourselves and seeks union and creation.
- The Jaguar, representative of transformation, who teaches us to step beyond fear and death and into a world of mystery and connects us with our Luminous Warrior who has no enemies in this world or the next and who can regain hope and bring new balance from chaos.
- The Hummingbird, represents courage required to embark on an epic journey, who teaches us to enjoy the sweetness of Life and that we can accomplish even the most impossible task despite tremendous odds. She reminds us to live in the moment and that Life is what it is.
- The Condor or Eagle, represents the self-transcending principle, who teaches us to see from a higher perspective of vision, clarity and beauty and to see with the eyes of the heart and spread our own wings so that we may fly with Great Spirit. The energies of the Eagle help us to find the guiding vision of our lives and rise above the trivial day to day struggles. The energies of the Condor help us to see into the past and future so that we know not only where we come from, but where we are going.
Upon receiving the Munay-Ki our chakras (the body’s energy centers) become cleansed so that we may attain what the Laika call a “rainbow body” and we may radiate and emit the colors of the rainbow. This allows higher luminous beings to reach out to us and recognize that we share a common calling. Furthermore, it enables us to step into the ultimate Homo Luminous state, an energy state common to that of Angels and Divine Spirit; however, we must first shed our old patterns, not reinforce our past, and walk with an open heart, so that we may step into whom we are becoming and whom we see ourselves as being in the future.
Of course, there is quite a bit more to learn from the Munay-Ki. More than can be learned over a weekend and more than I can put into 1000 words. However, at the end of the day what we were taught over the weekend was to be authentic and always operate from a place of Spirit. Again, this is similar to my past Lightworker lessons of being compassionate and living in alignment with your True Self, Higher Spirit and feeling the Oneness of all life. For me the Munay-Ki are just another method of communication with Divine Spirit. Just as in this world we have a landline, a cellphone, email and Skype; similarly there is more than one way to communicate in the Universe with Spirit. Thus, my Valentine’s Day gift is to inspire you to connect with Spirit and further your own develoment of your own personal spiritual growth.
Until next time, may your days be brighter and your lives be lighter.
Let me ignite the light in your life!
