Shamanism, Spirituality and Ceremony
Much of the work we have been offering of late is shamanic in nature, and I wanted to give a definition of theway I am using this term. A shaman (to my understanding) is someone who has passed through an incredibly intense process of self discovery that usually spans many years and includes extendedperiods(a year, and often longer) in isolation, disconnected from the tribe and usually under the tutelage of someone who has already passed through this process themself.
As an intro to this article, I want to honour all Mothers, no matter how they have birthed their children. This is a different perspective, which is the subjective opinion of the parents of a beautiful baby who made the conscious choice to birth in a non medicalised way.
Understanding the Process of Birth, Life and Death
Is the universe in the process of expanding life or deteriorating death?
Everything in the 3 dimensional universe is governed by fixed laws. Duality is one of these laws, which states that everything is dual in nature. Meaning, there can be no hot without cold or long without short. It states that everything ceases to be without its counterpart.
A clear example of this is matter and space, there is no such thing as either empty space or pure matter, both need the comparison to be brought to life.
Another universal law includes that of vibration, stating that everything from dense to etheric is just an expression of vibration in varying degree. A third example would be seen in attraction, which includes magnetism, gravity and even love.
The word Archetype was coined by Swedish psychologist Carl Jung for that which can become manifest from the collective unconscious. The collective unconscious is a unified field for all manifest and unmanifest potential of the human experience, thought to be inherited from ancestral memory, although it perhaps comes from a source that is beyond comprehension.
Simply put the collective unconscious is like a library where all potential lives, and it could be argued that the collective unconscious is actually a timeline of all existence past, present and future existing beyond the time/space continuum.
