We are in that short interlude that happens this time of year, Honorable Shamans and Fellow Pagans. In my country, in Suburbia, it is the week between Christmas and New Years, the time betwixt and between 2017 and 2018. You may choose to look back, or you may choose to look forward. I encourage you to look within.
Where are you, in your Spiritual Path?
What are your Spiritual Gifts?
Are you sharing them, are you reaching people with your gifts?
Are you reaching everybody who needs you?
I’ve been meditating on this for a few weeks, with a sense of restlessness. Something-isn’t-quite-right-for-me. I realized today, I miss blogging about Shamanism. The simple solution is to blog. And I am blogging. There, I fixed that.
But more critically, I miss teaching about Shamanism, Creativity, and the Earthways Shamanic Path. It took me a while to realize I was feeling out of sorts, because I wasn’t teaching. In the meanwhile, I meditated. I wrote in my journal, then I asked some friends a few questions, and their responses reminded me, I love to teach.
Teaching keeps me accountable to my practice and path. Teaching, keeps me disciplined. Teaching, keeps me learning. All that, gives me things to write about. I temporarily discontinued teaching my classes this past April, when I made a pile of major changes all at once, in my life.
Teaching is easy, once you have the space, the schedule, the lesson plan, the students all lined up. Getting all THAT pulled together, can be like launching a rocket to the moon.
My spiritual gifts reach the most people, when I write and when I teach, so, that’s what I must do.
How about you?
Share your peace with Mother Earth and Father Sky and the Big Waters all around us.
