This is the first in a series of travel adventures that takes place in sacred and iconic sites around the world. The books are designed to give the reader tools that will aid in their individual journey to recognize areas in their life cycles that are self-sabotaging. One of these methods being able to navigate through association to cultural impact. Relating to how you were raised, where, when, and by whom. I suppose the most challenging issue has been to communicate the benefits of taking care of one’s own health. I’m not saying that my experience is the only way but, it is a way.
These writings are based on the knowledge I have received through education and application. My goal is to relay this knowledge in a balanced way, i.e. yin/yang, pro/con, dark/light etc. Though there is the unavoidable programming. The part of self that wants to tell it my way. How the given situation made me feel. How control of the choice would only play out so long before the reinforced energy of the natural universe took over. This didn’t happen once or even twice, it continues to this day. It is how cycles work. It is a life process to learn how to recognize what part of the cycle is detrimental and change that through reinforced action. Time and patience really can be exciting and of course rewarding.
The reader can use this through association. We all have different situations we were raised in so not every method will apply. Although there will be something because the energy of synchronicity has brought you here as the reader.
This part of the journey happens after I regained my physical health. Getting your physical body healthy allows your mind state to be in an elevated place and gives you more options to see a situation from a different perspective. I have covered that process in my previous book series ‘Going Towards the Nature is Going Towards the Health’.
In my experience the road to cyclic recovery has the most emphasis put on the first year. Which I agree is a critical stage but then what? How do you continue to evolve into a balanced life of your remaking? How do you explain HOW to heal? Or is it recover? Do you really want to recover what led you down the path of abuse? Because the reinforced energy is what moves you into a higher state of mind to see the whole of the situation. Healing would mean the wound is covered, closed. But the scar still remains…then what?
My point is the fact that abuse is there. What you can do, to progress in life, would be to step through with the ability to embrace and accept without drudging the canal deeper. Not only into the abuse received but the abusive behavior learned as a coping mechanism to survive. So use the scars as a means to propel learning in ways that open up positive possibilities for one to live life freely. Thus setting terms to help not hinder the present. Recognition is the key.
This is where I began, by approaching the life cycle from one place of completion and working in reverse. It sounds a bit unorthodox but the bigger view of the entire issue is really the scope of the process. It’s about learning to set goals and placing intent in action to achieve them. Seeing the issue in a non-reactive mind state.
You see I believe there is this gullibility that we all carry to a certain degree. This may present itself in any way necessary to the situation, immersing time and space. This leaves the energetic circumstances right for vulnerability. Some of us may know when that is and how it can be used positively, or not, in our lives. While others, such as I, know it will come as chaos ensues. This, is that story.
All in all this is about healing and to realize that in order to have a body maintain its overall health it has to be in flux all the time. Constant influence from all types of energy sources in the 21st century dictate this. The idea is not to ignore it or to put it off for a better time or simply to be able to afford it. Right? So how exactly? It’s different for us all. This is my experience and what I’ve discovered, with the hope others will find tools to aid them on their own path to a more balance life.
Now allow me to explain this book’s title ‘South Node Shaman’. Why south node? The series is based on my real life adventures toward developing spiritual growth, the second phase after body/mind connection. In my astrological chart my south node is in Capricorn. Adding Astrology in my attention elevated my energy into a higher mind state. It’s a tool to aid in developing positive life outcomes. The energy of everything affects the energy of you. What you choose to focus on is what will help or hinder your progress. Being aware of my support and nemesis in the stars has been a great comfort in my own process. Thus, the chaos of the south node for me has authored my life cycles. Of course there are more aspects that influence the chart but what the basics state are that I will follow the hero’s journey experiencing unpredictable life expeditions taking me to the brink of chaos to reach divine connection…Every time. I write that with calm but for me its explosive and the learning curve was waaaay steep!
The second query posed is about the Shaman title. Because I research and live many modalities of healing this likens my methods of teaching and writing to the practices of Shamanism. My lineage being from Celtic origin. These practitioners are responsible for maintaining the health and wellbeing of their chosen tribe by learning as many healing methods as possible. Haven chosen this path to help others, writing it down is another means of relaying positive healing energy to those who are drawn to these writings. If I had known this when I set out on these quests you’d think I’d might’ve changed my mind but nooo, my heart still follows this same course of fate and really I wouldn’t’ have it any other way.
My trip to emerald isle and velvet highlands happen at the beginning of the eighth year in my recovery with plans unfolding quickly on the back half of the seventh. I state this because to become aware of how ones cycles behave, not only annual but on a multi-yearly basis, supports all aspects of life. The steps revealed to me through the cycles during the first seven years will be covered further on in this series. I wanted to start with the travel due to the different environmental effects of energy that are unknown. You see during the first seven years most, not all, people choose safe places that they know to recover. This was true with me. When you expose yourself to a totally different country stark situations are exposed and it’s wise to be on, or in, a place where chaos doesn’t destabilize your spirit.
