  1. and ice cream. don't forget the ice cream.
  2. This sentence fragment begs a question, doesn't it? I have my answer, (enough of an answer to allow me to get to work). So, I'll step out of the picture and phrase it in the 2nd person only--- Who or what are your creators? -d.
  3. Hello Makers. Niteshad mentions the lunar cycle (phases of the moon) in 1 or 2 articles on the website. In the Maker tradition is there any use of the changes in the solar cycle (seasons of the year)? I'm thinking of the Celtic observance of the 4 mid-points between the equinoxes and the solstices, particularly Samhain (Halloween) and Beltane (May Day). Those two are times when the otherworld and this world are closer than normal or less separated. Or the "veil" that separates the two is thinned, allowing things and people to pass through. (In my view it would be a time when, for whatever reason, human perception of things energetic is heightened, easier, and happens for some normal un-shamanic people. There is no veil; these are not two separate worlds. But that's a technicality). So, from a Maker perspective, is any particular time of year more likely for a perception of normally un-seen things and events? Thanks. -d.
  4. thank you. what I "got" (later the same morning nixrana posted his response) was that "left side" was simply referring to that part of personal energy that is little-used, largely neglected, and lies outside of most people's awareness. "left side of your energy" says in 5 words what I just said in 16. much more eloquent and concise than I could be. regarding the original question in this thread, and ralph's response re brain activity, I would be submit that every thing and every event in the physical/material arena has a non-physical cause. I welcome any feedback on that statement.
  5. I was going post last night "never mind. I've got my answer now." I'm glad I didn't.
  6. "The second attention is a shift towards the left side of your energy, . . . ." --- anyone care to comment on the left and right sides of our energy? -d.
  7. Hello Beth, Do you do anything physically when you "activate" your hands, or is it only a matter of intent and will? -douglas
  8. Ralph, My friends (they are few) seem to find it more irritating than endearing. See you in class. -d.

    The term "ego" is used a few times in articles on this website. What, essentially, is ego? (From a shamanic perspective of course.)
  10. Specifically, gender -- do you experience or perceive energy as being polarized along feminine/masculine lines? (i.e., receptive/active, etc.)
  11. So, today my favorite is Stalking Fluidity. That's the one I've put into action the most so far. (I am, however, intending to put those feathers to good use-- when I learn how.)
  12. I have many that I really like. Limiting it to two favorites at this moment . . . . . . Contemporary Shamanism, particularly the last four paragraphs. (Even though I now have feathers in my possession.) And Shamanism in the Modern World, the whole thing. Respects to all staff, faculty, admin, pushers, and Poobahs here, douglas
  13. I'd like a little more on Unity. Is every thing, including us, a manifestation of one thing?
  14. Hello and a big "thank you" to all who chimed in on this last week. I read every reply soon after it was posted. Between being busy with other things and the desire to NOT unleash a flood of words, I've waited till now to acknowledge your input. It's almost hard to believe how much of each post spoke my heart. Perhaps gained some clarity. Feel less alone. The articles on the website already had me feeling a little bit at home here; the responses to my questions have deepened that feeling. Anyway, enough words. Thanks again to you all. d.
