Home of Shamanic Astrology Mystery School The Rights of the Shaman The Rights of the Shaman is a term paper I wrote when I returned to graduate school during the mid 1990s. The Rights of the Shaman Shaman Appendix This paper began as part of a much larger review of the various issues faced by indigenous cultures related to their natural resources utilization. At the time, it was seven years since the Smithsonian Institution’s exhibit on the Amazon Rainforest made its debut in this country at the local forestry center. When I returned to classes at the university where I taught, my years of experience as a lecturer and researcher in another department on campus was unknown to some of my newest professors. I tried on several occasions to winnow this paper down to briefer arguments as requested by the professor, but to no avail. In the end, this is the last version of a term paper I turned in for the course, more than a year after it was over. The Rights of the Shaman A number or rights are implied by the above four statements. Other Implied Rights .
Astrology 12th House: Jupiter (sagittarius) | Drum Works Shamanic Healing The 12th House in astrology is the house of secrets and things hidden. These things hidden can be qualities that we possess that we hide from others or they can be qualities we possess that we are unable to accept in ourselves. In her book, “Your Secret Self, Illuminating the Mysteries of the Twelfth House”, Tracy Marks calls the 12th house, “the storehouse within us in which both our inner demons and angels reside.” As a result it is often called the house of self undoing. As a quantum shamanic practitioner it is the house that fascinates me the most because it is the house of the shadow it points us to the parts of ourselves that are most deeply wounded and hints at the heaviest karma that we have carried into our current life. Ultimately, we all only have so much time and energy and healing takes a great deal of courage and commitment. The twelfth house is also the house of solitude and confinement and both of these experiences support the work of the twelfth house. Steps to healing:
Animal Spirit Totems Animal Totem Power: Discover Your Animal Totem Meanings Introduction This Animal Totem's web section was created in 1997 as a student guide for those seeking understanding. It was one of the very first animal totem web sites out there at the time and it was also the first to have the totems broken into the individual groups; animals, insects, land animals, reptiles and water animals. Animal Totems There are hidden qualities and forces of nature that we can access if we are attuned to the natural forces around us. The animals express the spirit nature of that species and exemplify qualities we can learn from. Personal power animals and the connection to animals and their wisdom are found throughout the world in many cultures. The timeless widespread view of power animals can be related to Carl Jung's concepts. Totem animals can be seen as channels or frequencies on a radio with many levels of understanding.

10 Reasons Clay Should Be In Every Mama’s Cupboard By Kresha Faber, Contributing Writer This post contains affiliate links. So let me state for the record that I am officially crackers. I let my kids eat dirt. And not only that, I make sure they eat dirt. Okay, okay – it’s not just any dirt, although I will argue that eating dirt while they play can actually be quite a healthy thing, the dirt to which I am referring is mineral-rich clay. It’s known as “the clay of a thousand uses,” but as a mother of three young children, I find it especially handy for ten specific reasons. 1. No matter how healthily we eat or how healthily we feed our children, our bodies have to deal with a lot of junk. While our livers, kidneys, and lymphatic systems are still working hard to move those toxins out of our systems, they’re often overwhelmed, so the toxins get stored around the body, causing weakness, lack of energy, feeling foggy, and the inability to lose weight. See Kate’s detox method and how she uses clay, even as an exclusively-breastfeeding mama. 2.

Blue-eyed Humans Have A Single, Common Ancestor New research shows that people with blue eyes have a single, common ancestor. A team at the University of Copenhagen have tracked down a genetic mutation which took place 6-10,000 years ago and is the cause of the eye colour of all blue-eyed humans alive on the planet today. What is the genetic mutation "Originally, we all had brown eyes," said Professor Hans Eiberg from the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine. Limited genetic variation Variation in the colour of the eyes from brown to green can all be explained by the amount of melanin in the iris, but blue-eyed individuals only have a small degree of variation in the amount of melanin in their eyes. Professor Eiberg and his team examined mitochondrial DNA and compared the eye colour of blue-eyed individuals in countries as diverse as Jordan, Denmark and Turkey. Nature shuffles our genes The mutation of brown eyes to blue represents neither a positive nor a negative mutation.
