Need advice


Recommended Posts

Hi, i journeyed once or twice 14 years ago, met a power animal but not much came of it as got distracted by tai chi etc. ive done level two Usui Reiki, ive had a very rough last 4 years suffering two major breakdowns and given a diagnosis of autism. I wanted to post my first nourney to the lower world whiich i got instruction in "the way of the shaman" by michael harner. Im thinking this First journey was a sign that ive found a tool i need to recover and that i need to take charge of my own healing. During the journey i felt more joy than i have in last few years. Anyway heres my first journey in 14 years and was quite intense so i wanted oppinions on pursuing shamanic training thanks...


Went into kent university library rabbit warrens....


Slipped in quickly came to an open landscape jumped in an opening again


Did this another 5 times...getting deeper and deeper towards lowerworld.


There was a Landscape with flowers, a skull that was alive with energy circling round it, a rock formation beneath where skull floated. There was also a lake with flowers around it.


Went towards lake where fields of flowers were, they parted before me and let me pass, I took one and scattered the petals and made them disintegrate into a dust like substance.


Went to rock formation, it dissolved at my will in my hands n turned to dust then into cotton candy...i reshaped it and with a "Ummmmm" reshaped it into stone.


Then the skull wanted to talk, spoke in a language i didnt understand, i went to turn away but he made it clear he still had something to say....felt warmth in my chest and it radiated in my body spreading out and a joyousness.


I Turned into a phoenix looking bird, plunged into the dirty lake then when emerged i let out a burst of flame and cleaned myself. Then plunged back to the earth, and a dinosaur with a smilling face with wings rose up and greeted me...i freaked a bit.


But it was clear he wanted to hug. So we hugged, then felt a warm affection and more warmth in my body and energy to do things. I wanted to fly but he didn't so i walked bout but he didnt move, so i sped around him and was invited in his brain....cant remember....was curious. Learned how to make an inverted tornado.


Then i created an inversed tornado that pulled on the ground a tornado that was fiery.

Then a little passage opened at top of tornado and i was catapulted through it. Sped along a dark blue passage to a watery blue world, it was very still. i looked for birds animals but was just a calm but empty landscape...my hands projected light so after a bit i ignited the sun with both beams and started up a reaction that would bring life to the world...but it was a slow process and would take longer than time i had there (i do reiki, might explain light from hands).


I sped back to lowerworld....cant remember.....i couldnt bring anything back (instructions in the book i was using) so i turned back into human form discarding my bright red and orange feathers then like liquid bending round corners of tunnel back up it was easy and effortless.


i went through one world on way up i think then transformed from liquid to human so effortlessly then was there in a good suit went to stroke a bunny then was time to go....and started writing this down.

Hi Kraken,


Thanks for posting about your experience. If you're interested in pursuing shamanic training, this would be one of the places where you can do that. We offer a series of beginning classes, ranging from self-healing to expanding perception, to dreaming. If it is self-healing that you're interested in, then I'd recommend looking up the articles on the Shamans Cave website that have to do with 'The Recapitulation'. The recapitulation class, incidentally, is the self-healing class, which might be a good place to start as it gives you some ground from which you can approach the other classes.


You can read about beginning classes here: http://www.shamanscave.com/community/shamanism-classes


Hope that helps,

Hi Kraken -


Life on the autistic spectrum is often painful, with roadblocks that "neurotypical" people can neither see nor understand. Especially if you are an empath and/or are shamanically inclined as well. I want to underscore what Rebecca has posted above. The self-healing practices taught here do really help, whether you feel drawn to continue on a shamanic path, or are simply needing to heal your own soul..


May you find what you seek.

That is the most epic and awesome journey I have read yet. I think you will be an amazing shaman after full training. I'm glad you have help for your autism and there are so many ways to help others with the Internet these days if that makes it more comfortable but you can do whatever you feel comfortable with. I see lots of working with elemental energies and rebirthing in your journey. 

All the best.
