One thing I've noticed on shamanism forums, as well as among shamans in general, is that nobody seems to use their intuition to answer people's questions. Many of these questions on here receive multiple answers that may or may not actually apply? Isn't it time we started consulting our totems and universal consciousness about these questions people have?
The reason I say so is that we could be passing up an incredible wealth of unexpected new knowledge and understanding, as well as bring real resolution to the problems people are having.
I see a lot of questions saying "I THINK this may be it" but no one saying "my guides told me_____ for you."
We could use our massive wealth of resources here to help each other spiral upward more quickly. I just don't understand why that doesn't happen. It doesn't take very long, does it?
I see what you are saying and understand why you are suggesting this, however, from your questions and the 'feel' I get, you would seem to be fairly new to the shamanic path and sometimes working over distance in an impersonal forum can be, as others have suggested, not the right place to be working this way.
For me personally, there is a sanctity and respect issue involved when I work with my spirits. They simply are not there at my beck and call for trivial things. That's just the way it is with me.
I know setting up a space and going into a trance is a pain, but the more we do it, the better we get at it. I simply don't think there is enough shamanizing involved in the answering process.
It's not a pain and never should be, but the humble intent is important rather than practice or 'spiritual homework'.
Is there something I'm not getting, because this seems too important for me to misunderstand.
Ask your spirits, they will show you what you need when you are ready. Sometimes pushing too hard stops everything.
Some of the questions I need to ask would require someone to go into the trance and ask their guides for answers specifically for me, but I am hesitant to impose on all of you. Is anyone willing to do this for me?
I'm willing to offer ho'oponopono in return. I just need help answering these:
a.)what exactly is going on with my panther spirit
b.)why does my energy body feels like it is burning when I journeyed just now
a) Your Panther spirit may be moving back slightly to make way for a new way of working.
b) Part of working with energy and doing shamanic work is heat!
Do you trust what I say? Do your spirits confirm? Does your intuition confirm?
I didn't go into a trance/journey to answer these questions because I didn't need to. Part of it is experience, part is their constant connection to me.
One reason that divination is virtually always used in shamanic practice is that it demonstrates to the client and their family/friends the 'divine' message so it is not merely the healer who is giving advice or making something up. I think we have that same problem with evidence here on an internet community which makes offering such specific messages from spirit problematic.
Good luck on your shamanic journey.
