The shamanic landscape teaches with symbols, and the work of a clairvoyant or shaman is to interpret those symbols for the individual we serve. In my work three shamanic landscapes present themselves, each rich with symbols I will recognize. The elements of the landscapes are crafted from my experience across lifetimes in order to make meaning in a symbolic language which I understand. It's efficient and different for each clairvoyant.
One of these landscapes is a field of tall summer grass where we stand on a well-worn path stretching ahead to the horizon. How we move along the path, forward or back, what we see, what we take time to observe and who comes to meet us in the field are the opportunities in this learning landscape.
Sometimes just to the left of the well-worn footpath is an adamantine column set close enough that you’d need to work pretty hard to avoid seeing it.
This column rises straight up from the grass in the field and appears as a crystal non-crystalline, light non-light, shimmering non-shimmering, substance non-substance shaft of pure beauty. Words fail.
Each and every dear soul whom I have stood with at the base of this gigantic column has allowed their eyes to play over the base of it. Some seem aware that they are being observed. As yet, none has turned their eyes upward to look into the eyes looking back at them from atop the column.
The adamantine column is a symbol of the Divine; God, Great Spirit, the Buddha, your Divine in all its given names.
Why do we not look?
We doubt what we see. We put it off to later. We feel unworthy.
I had a conversation recently with a beautiful soul who stands at the base of the column, and she wanted to understand how to gaze up into the eyes of the Divine. How to accept divine love. How to feel worthy.
I cannot answer these questions. I can only share a lesson I learned a few years ago which seems relevant. I was at a conference, and the speaker was talking about fear. How to defeat the fear that keeps us small.
The answer was clear. We don’t defeat fear, because if we were to wait until the fear was gone, we would have a great reason not to act. To stay small. Instead, we must get comfortable with the uncomfortable. We must accept our fear and decide to act anyway, while still feeling afraid.
We are worthy of Divine love. But, if we wait until we feel worthy, we might never lift our gaze up to the eyes of the Divine. Our beautiful, messy, broken, unworthy self that, at this very moment, is being flooded with unconditional love.
Ours is to feel it.
This is not news to you, and I can hear you saying, "Sure, but how?"
This is what is beginning to work for me, my beautiful, messy self. Just as I do for my clients, I sit quietly. I close my eyes, and I allow myself to feel what is really around me.
This is not an act of will, not an action at all. It is a state of being. I have come to think of it as a sense that we all possess and rarely use. Use it. Practice using it. Allow yourself to feel and let all the sensations arise.
I can hear you asking, "What do you actually see?"
I don't see her fully yet, but I feel my divine mother. My left cheek is resting on her full bossom and the coolness of her well-worn cotton dress. When we meet, all I do is rest there, and as I settle into the softness of her, she rises. Together we find ourselves high in the air above the field, and I can see myself standing on my own path far below. She shows me a higher perspective. That is enough for right now. Knowing she is there. Knowing I can rest. Knowing I can choose to see from that higher perspective.
That is my experience of Divine love. Now go find yours.
If you would like help to see what is already around you, reach out to me. I'd love to say 'hello' and answer your questions.
Hello & Welcome!
I'm Pam, and I am deeply curious about how intuition works and how we use it.
