I don’t have a very long commute to my office, Honorable Shamans and Fellow Pagans, and some days it seems to take me a very long time to get out of my house. But today, I’ve realized that part of the work of being a Shaman is knowing that I am exactly where I am supposed to be, all the time, no matter what time it really is. When you are a Shaman, you step into The Flow.
My little town has some boulevards: roads which have two lanes going North, a lovely landscaped median, and two lanes going South. These are also called, “divided highways,” as you’ll see in my picture, here.
My town also has more than its share of people driving around who are just visiting. I mean, they are tourists or snowbirds: they aren’t from around here. They get lost, easily and frequently. So this morning, I was driving towards this “T” intersection, where a two lane road, meets up with this 4 lane boulevard, and I watched as a little car headed into the intersection, and then, instead of going around the landscaped median and South, he made a tighter left, to the South, and began coming my way in the North bound lanes. I stopped short, honked the horn, and flashed my lights and got his attention. And by this time, I was straddling both North bound lanes, much to the confusion of the car behind me. So, I ‘held space’ for the little car. After a moment, the little car moved around the median and proceeded very slowly South. And I made my way to my office. No matter what time it was, I had arrived there, on time.

So I say, See the Magic in Your Land. Feel It. Feel your connection to the world all around you. And I say, Share Your Peace with Our Mother Earth, Our Father Sky and our Big Waters that surround us.
