The ultimate tour guide and the ultimate journey

The joy that was travelling was all but lost in the early part of the twenty first century, with the pandemic and Brexit throwing in an extra measure of difficulty for anyone trying to journey.

So, now I think to myself, why do I need to travel anyway? Travelling can wait until the various lapses have resolved themselves and travelling has once again become a joy.

I don’t really want to spend my time doing things that don’t bring me joy….

So, what to do?

Have you ever watched a fantasy film and wished that you could go there?

Have you ever wished that it was really true?

The Lion the Witch and the wardrobe….?

Back to the future?

Or Lord of the rings?

Well, maybe this is just my thing, but I have often felt a deep desire to be, ‘there’, wherever ‘there’ happened to be.

To my utter joy…( my favourite word of the day)…I discovered that being a shaman meant that now, I do that as a job!

Journey, I mean, to all the places that no one thought existed and were just part of a fantasy, but they existed in someone’s mind and therefore they existed.

The thing about the imagination is that it is little understood, it is considered a place for daydreaming children who are not paying attention to their studies, or for old people whose memories are no- longer what they used to be, but this is far from the truth.

Have you ever seen a painting that simply took your breath away? Read a book that made you cry? Heard music that touched somewhere within you, that you didn’t even know existed?

Well, all of this, was the product of someone having an imagination.

Infact what imagination really is, is our ability to connect with something so much greater than the simple world that most of us inhabit.

Imagination is where genius lives, it is where solutions are found to impossible challenges, it is where concepts that change the world are dreamed of, it is where the most beautiful art, literature, poetry, music and dance are all born and live.

It is also where the shaman goes to journey.

In the journey of the shaman, anything is possible, all possibilities exist simultaneously, and it is here that all creatures, all beings and all worlds also exist, simultaneously.

To understand shamanic healing, one must understand a world where all possibilities exist. It is the world that physicists call the quantum field,and it is here, that the magic happens.

Let your imagination fly…re-member this part of you that is so pure, so true to its nature and so real.

It is in the realms of the unreal, that we discover the real.
