  1. Yeah energy, that thing that often defies logic, n'est pas? I do think time and physical space can be interconnected, but not necessarily you can experience time without space. Speaking to your specific example, I have also experienced how speed and gravity can affect your perception of how you move through space, a la Einstein. To me, it's as if everything slows down. Once I fell off the back of a truck but the way I fell, my body was spinning in the air before it hit the ground but it felt like I was moving very slowly. Another time I was in the center of a car flipping over, everything became very slow, almost stood still, even though the car was moving very fast. I think you felt the energy of time- in your body, in your energy, moving through space really fast on a train. Time is a real energy, but we've all agreed that it moves in a linear fashion, forward, and that makes sense if you want to measure the sunrise to sunset or being a baby to an old person. But I have also experienced how time is also outside of the physical world. Shamans have been playing with this for centuries, quantum physics is really only just catching up with what we have been saying: there is potential to move through time with your energy, sideways, backwards, or multiple possible future outcomes, and it doesn't have to be with your body.

    Visions

    Hi there. Visions usually are that, like watching a tv screen that's a good way to describe them. We all 'see' uniquely, for example sometimes the things I see (and I don't mean with my physical eyes) takes on a cartoonish quality. I've also found that the cusp between asleep and awake can be an opening to see and experience beyond the normal human range. Sometimes our own energy, and events in our lives, will prod us in the direction of seeing and experiencing things outside the box of normal human experience. You wrote that you're beginning to wake up: when a person starts this process things can energetically begin to become more fluid too. Mandy

    Lonely

    I’d intent to discover what brings me fulfillment and joy. Try new things. Spend time in nature. Find Creative outlets like painting or language coding. Sewing clothes, wood work or making music... it just depends on the person. It’s good to find things it will make you feel less restless. Plus it will give you hands and mind something to do as your energy grows and changes. Mandy

    Lonely

    Hi. People who are bent have a hard time forging friendships and connecting with the mainstream in the world. Sometimes those who are drawn to the shamanic often go through phases where they stop the world too, especially when they come to that nexus where they want to fundamentally change who they are and heal. It may be something your energy is doing consciously or unconsciously, to give yourself the space to see what you want to make in the world. One thing I've grown to realize it that there's a difference between being lonely and alone. I think once you've cleared your table top and healed a little more you'll begin to connect more with the world and the people in it, but on your terms, and like-minded people will come your way. I'm glad you're here, and someone is always down for a chit chat

    Oneness

    Hi Babylace94, Your view of the world resonates with us all, its construct, your desire to live a different way and be at one with nature... we used to live that way, be more at one with the world and we worked to live not lived to work.... this is the age and time we are in, but there's nothing to say it has to stay this way. Just as you are awakening so are others, so take heart. What is crazy and what is normal anyway? You are you. What keeps me going is the very thing that touches you so deeply you say you've lost the will to live... life itself. I'm going to die one day anyway, so my work here is to live life to its fullest, and to work to make the reality I want to live in. Your nostalgia, what you seek, that great joy in being here and connected to the universe is beautiful, and real. It's why we are alive. Don't go back to sleep: the world needs more people like you.
  6. Hi Anthony, You know, I can really relate to how you're feeling. There was a time in my life I felt my whole life was being lived for others, controlled by others, and all my time energy money and life choices I made weren't about me. I too was scared and frightened and although I didn't fully understand what had happened to me to get that way, I knew I didn't want to live like that anymore. I felt like if I continued on like that I was just going to die. I felt so drained. Recapitulation, I can tell you, literally saved my life. Bit by bit, I retrieved the energy I had lost along the way. I took it back from people, my past painful experiences, the ones who hurt and betrayed me or broke my heart, people who were mean to me, or the jobs that I was a slave to. The recap exercise really helped me understand myself and how I just gave my energy away, and how to take it back. Slowly, it was as if I was coming back to life, like I was shattered pieces of a lightbulb that were coming back together and my light getting stronger. We call the recapitulation an act of self-healing for a reason, because it is. Like Lorrie said, make your lists, reclaim your energy, and your world will change. It's like you begin to own your own power and live life on your own terms. I hope this makes sense Just try it, and do it for a few months, and you will see what I mean. Take the class coming up in January if you can. Even if you can't, you have the exercise, and know that we are all here for you if you want to talk and get some advice. Mandy
  7. Hi Taloy. I'm not familiar with tobacco fasts or ayahuasca either, the type of shamanism we practice at Cave Shamans works purely with energy and not medicines. There are many shamanic traditions, ours originated in Europe, I'm curious to know more about it though. What we do here is practice a self-healing method called Recapitulation, which helps heal your energy. If you're curious about it you can find out more about it here: https://www.shamanscave.com/self-healing/recapitulation/ Good luck with getting rid of your blockage, and welcome to the cave.
  8. Hi Voice29, A voice once told me, "how can you heal others, unless you first heal yourself?" Even though we here at the cave believe self-healing is an ongoing process, you need to get a good handle on it and do some groundwork there before you try to work on others because you might not be detached enough to see how to be able to truly help another. We teach an ancient self-healing practice here called recapitulation, one that is as old as shamanism itself and can be found in many respective traditions. It focuses on energy retrieval so you can take back your energy from the world and give back what is not yours, so that you may return to your true un-traumatized self and live the life you were meant to lead in the world, a life that belongs to you and you alone. Can I make a suggestion? Focus on healing yourself and not listening to anyone just now, be they voices you hear or people who whisper suggestions to you. In the process you will change and will become stronger, your light much brighter, without the help of anyone but yourself remembering how to stand in your own power. There's nothing quite like it. There are articles on the public forums just type "self healing" or "recapitulation" in the search bar it should take you to some good reads on the practice. We also offer online classes here that elaborate on self-healing through the recapitulation process, along with exercises. You don't necessarily have to be a shaman to do this but most traditions, if not all, begin with learning how to self-heal. I can tell you from personal experience that I am a changed woman because of it, among other things. I hope this helps. Eman
  9. Good luck and thank you!
  10. Hi YourHumbleServant, You should, if you are choosing to go to school and study, do what you feel calls out to you and makes the reality that you choose to study. The best way I can describe the path of the maker is that it doesn't have much to do with knowledge, school and science but everything to do with experience. What you are exposed to only enriches whatever journeys you undertake and quality of life. Good luck to you, and welcome to the cave Eman
  11. {{Sphinxy}} The realm of ideas and readings are wonderful journeys, but they are finite spaces. In my experience on the shamanic path they don't compare with personal experiences that don't happen in the realm of readings and ideas but in realm of energy. All writings and ideas as such stem from an individual's personal experience. No matter how much they tantalize and excite the mind or your energy, I personally have discovered, it's really different to read about someone who could do X or Y than to be able experience it and do it yourself. To go through the rigor, the journey, and really become a thing, as apposed to reading about the possibility of such a thing. To read about Marjorie Kemp, Merlin, or Gandalf, or to become one like those we read about. Mandy
  12. Hello again. Just thought to tell you what I'm seeing: maybe your feelings that "you're not doing everything you can and should be" is a way your energy is using to tell you that the totality of you wants to grow and be more than you are now. Don't see it as a judgmental thing you should feel guilty about, but as an opportunity. Sometimes we speak to ourselves and push ourselves in ways we don't understand at the time, but in hindsight we look back and see that the moments of pain are really moments of growth. Maybe this is an opportunity for growth, a new path your energy wants to walk. You should explore that and see where it takes you on your journey. Rocks are amazing. Did you know that each stone, in addition to being its own self, is also a small part of the greater intent of this whole big living rock we live on? Stones are pretty cool as natural elements, just as trees (wood) are. Mandy
  13. Hi Ticklebits, I really like to use liquid valerian root as a matter of personal choice for my own physical well being and specific needs, but it's nothing to do with the maker tradition in the sense you are asking.There really aren't any specific herbs used in the maker tradition, although I know that a lot of medicinal shamanism incorporates herbs into their practices. I do think all plants have their specific properties and affect the human body. There's also a maker here who is an herbalist and incorporates the use of herbs in her healing practices to create homeopathic remedies based on her knowledge of their properties. But from where I'm standing in the tradition, she is aligning her own personal intent with the intent of herbs to help people with their physical and mental well being. I hope this makes sense. If you feel that you are picking apart and are up against a family curse, you can work to unravel your energetic connection to it and recap really is a great place to start because it helps to heal your energy and stand free in the world. One thing about feeling negative energy directed at you: try not to stand where it can find you. If you don't agree to the negativity you perceive, you don't agree to it being in your life. I think that's where recap really comes in and helps one detach. Mandy
  14. Hi Sphinxy. Imagine this: you can be your own guide, working, adventuring, exploring, all by the virtue of your own self, your own energy and personal power. This is the way of the maker. Mandy
  15. Hi MorgusHroud, Nothing can have power over you unless you agree to it. Chase it away with your own intent and banish it. You don't need white sage or a tool, but the power of your own invocation. I would tell it to get lost and push it out with my own will power, and then give it no attention Mandy
