ShamanTalk: Episode 41

What's the point of all this work anyway?

When we’re called to walk a path of personal and spiritual transformation, it can be easy to lose sight of what we are going and what we are trying to achieve. Or perhaps we’re aiming for something that doesn’t exist?

So what are we trying to achieve? Enlightenment? Always being Joyful & in Flow space? Being Happy?

I’m going to burst some bubbles here… life ebbs and flows and when we’re happy and in flow state… then super! But how easily are we knocked out of that space when life happens around us? When we are faced with hardship, loss, break-ups and breakdowns?

Then we’re not happy or joyful. Old stories and behaviours come up – we find ourselves acting in ways that really don’t serve us. But it’s happened before we even realise.

So what is it we need?

We need a toolkit – that’s the point of the work. To build an effective, supportive toolkit that we can open at any time and know we have what we need to be able to ride this wave called life. We may not become an enlightened being – but we can become effective shamanic people.

But there’s a step to this that many people miss. And that’s the action and the work it takes to awaken our inner healer, fill our toolbox and move through life with as much grace as we can muster.

Some steps we can take include

  1. Building confidence with our spiritual work
  2. Learning how to work with our resistance
  3. Finding Spiritual momentum and overcoming self-limiting beliefs to transformation
  4. Working with effective boundaries in our life
  5. Overcoming and avoiding the Blame Game
  6. Understanding our shadow and how we can understand and integrate our worst bits
  7. Learning how to be vulnerable and admitting when we need help – whilst also standing in a place of radical self-responsibility
  8. Recognising and releasing old stories – we stay trapped by the stories we tell ourselves and those we have been told by others.


So, take those steps every day – whatever it takes, find a way to work towards a tool kit that actually works for you.
