  1. Mahkeis, I am new to the Maker tradition, but not new to energy work itself. I have a lot of previous experience before coming here and have found I am always respected for who I am. Even with my own personal experiences, I am still learning new things here, which I am finding complement and add to what I previously knew. All I can suggest is, start off with just the recap 1 class and see how it goes. If you find any of the information classes with what you previously were taught, maybe put aside what you already know, just to see what this can teach you and then find a way to int
  2. Hi Fini, welcome I'm also in QLD. Originally from Melbourne, I travelled all over Au and I had a similar connection feel in and around Alice. I am also exploring and healing from childhood traumas that one counsellor told me was PTSD. I'm currently doing a couple of classes here and I highly, highly recommend the recap 1 class when it starts again. Definitely do the exercise as outlined here. It's how it's done in the recap class, but they talk about different areas of your life and how to focus on those specifically. The energy won't hang around you. Expelling it is an act
  3. I've started to work on sharpening focus and I'm having an interesting experience. I pick a spot on the wall and just put all my attention on that. Like meditation, except I am not trying to relax my mind, alter perception or meditate as such, I am more looking at intensifying my focussing abilities. If that makes sense? So I picked the spot on the wall and just focused my mind on it, eyes closed. As I continued to keep my attention fully on this spot, my mind started to throw up all kinds of chatter. It just would not shut up. When that wasn't working, I felt my body shift as though
  4. Besides the eagles were hungry and vying for food? Not everything has to have a meaning. as Freud said, 'sometimes a cigar is just a cigar'. The important thing is, did you get a feeling at the time there was some important message in this? If you did, what do YOU think it was? If it's a message for you, then you are the best person to work it out. Ask your intuition what each part might mean and trust in your own responses. Then look at your life experiences over the following days to see if it helps make sense of the message.

    Narael, I don't know how I shut it down, it was really a response to living in a very toxic environment and not being able to take it anymore. It was my family home when growing up, so I wasn't able to run away from the world. I think it is part of a survival instinct we have and takes a lot of emotional trauma to happen. Trust me, you don't want to shut it down. It's a part of who you are, it's a natural ability you were born with and I believe such things happen because it's part of the overall reason of why we are here. Being an empath is awesome for giving you early warning whe

    My Path

    I shut down my empathic side for years because I couldn't cope with what I was picking up. It caused so much trouble for me, doing that. It was part of my denial. I'm now in the process of opening that up again and learning to handle it better. Narael, have you learnt how to shield? To create a personal shield around you, to keep the energies out, so you can read what's happening, but not be consumed by it?

    Hi Narael, Welcome home! I've had similar experiences, though not quite the same. I suffered a lot from low self esteem, so I was always mentally bashing myself for being 'different'. Why couldn't I be normal? Why did I have to be the one who saw things so differently? So deeply? It was a really long journey for me, but I came to see it as my strength. Being different can mean you are odd, strange, less than the heard. Or it can mean you are unique, a rare gift and have strengths and abilities most don't, which can set you apart. I chose to take being called weird as a complim
  8. Thank you Sandstorm I've been doing that more and more since my first post and indeed you are right. Good things are coming.
  9. sandstorm, being a shaman is about learning to read the energy patterns underneath things. What you are talking about here is something humans have constructed (calendar and clock to artificially control time and superstition to explain fears). Shamans don't look at the superstition, they look at the energy that might be underneath. If you have enough people in one place, believe in the same thing, then their combined energy can create an energetic pattern we perceive as karma or fate. That doesn't mean it is real and doesn't mean it is made up, just that it is not something naturally
  10. Hi Sofia, The time zone was a tricky one for me. Basically, if you compare time with New York, you'll be in the correct time zone. Also, watch out for daylight savings. Intent is a bit complicated. Perhaps look up 'intend'. One description of intent is to have the mind or will focused and fixed on a desired outcome. Think about when you say you are going to do something but don't really mean it and when you say you are going to do it and then set about doing it. the difference in feeling between the two is your intent. In the second situation, you tapped into an energy with
  11. Hi Sweet Soul, It's very much about doing here The classes give you some background info and theory and then an exercise is set for you to do during the week. The class itself is in a chat programme, so is basically words on the screen and you can ask questions. If you'd done private messages in facebook, that's sort of what it's like. And there are always the forums to come to for more questions, answers and conversations
  12. A couple of things. 1. Trying. Don't try. Trying sets up an expectation that something must happen and then a fear of failure creeps in and you end up sabotaging it before you begin. Go with the "lets see what happens" attitude and then just allow whatever. If something happens great, if nothing happens also great. Very much a case of 'trying too hard'. 2. Not everyone experiences through sight. We have 6 main senses, 5 are the physical ones. Some people hear things, some taste them and some get physical sensations of what is happening. All are valid. None are more special or b
  13. I was recently reading about animal symbolism. Bat is the symbol of rebirth and transposing things to severe connection from the old to take up the new. The link was made to how babies develop head up in the womb, then turn upside down to prepare for birth, turning their back on the non physical realm to prepare to enter the physical one, so to speak. I didn't do this. Doctors turned me in the womb so I would be head down twice and I turned back three times. I never 'severed' my connection with the non physical or the spiritual realm as it's also called. I came into this world with that
  14. Part of my struggle for so long was believing it was better to be traditionally trained by a "real" shaman. Where I was going to find one living in the middle of the city in Melbourne, Australia I had no idea. Eventually, I came to the point where I had to go alone and just cope with it. As I stumbled along, I found most of my doubt and worry was based on fear of being judged by others as not being good enough, not being worthy. Just prior to starting here I decided I would decide what was worthy or not in me and that if I said it was good enough, then it was. Doing classes here has help
  15. Just an update: Now in week 3 of classes and I have to say I am soooo glad I did this. I have seen things begin to shift and change already, as I put the time into doing what I'm learning. This is an investment in *me*. One I am extremely glad I made.
