Too much emphasis is placed upon the personal. The burning flame of Spirit, the purity, wholeness, and wisdom, are no longer fueled and are burning themselves out. Self-identity and Spirit must be brought back into balance through individuation. This will allow for an awakening of subconscious qualities. People will remember the nature of being human within the universe, this vast sea of awareness. They will remember why they projected themselves into human form upon the Earth in the first place. ~ Becoming Awareness
Individuation is a quest for wholeness; a remembering of the self. Without getting into the detailed psychology of the individuation process which, incidentally, includes a lot of recapitulation, when the collective unconscious is brought into consciousness we are able to re-member who we are and why we are here. This brings us to a state of balance.
The passageway into the world of shamans opens up after the warrior has learned to shut off his internal dialogue. ~ Carlos Castaneda, Tales of Power
“How can we facilitate healing and shamanism without getting caught up in financial entanglements in the first place? I too hate the money changers in the temple… but what’s your suggested alternative, I wonder?”
This question was posed to me in response to my adamant approach that we must stop searching the world over to find a person to pay in order to unlock the mystery that already exists within each of us. There is no amount of money that can “buy” one the experience that they seek into the infinite that is often promised through a high-priced venture by means of signing up for a workshop, retreat or journey. The mystery, being adamantly sought by millions, is the desire to once again become fully re-integrated to the authentic freedom and wholeness that is our birthright.
