CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “7 Signs Your Calling Is A Modern Day Shaman”

Ascension Avatar note: With prominent Native American heritage, gifted (or cursed?) with OBEs, levitation, and having survived three NDEs… this article really ‘called’ to me today… 🙂

.  .  .

A Shaman is a person who helps others to awaken their consciousness and heals the wounds of the humanity.

In this article we’ll share 7 signs which will tell if you can be a shaman or not. Here are the signs that you are being called on the Shamanic Path.

1. YOU FEEL A STRONG CONNECTION TO NATURE

You understand that everything in the world is connected. Thus you feel close to the nature. You see yourself as a part of the nature. You can even experience the joy and the pain that a dog (or any other animal) feels. Like other Shamans, you believe in the concept of ‘the web of life’.

2. YOU ENJOY SOLITUDE AND FIND IT HARD TO FIT IN WITH OTHERS

Since the ancient times, shamans have been living a life of solitude. They lived outside the villages and were considered as ‘different’. However, they were the reverent figures as they possessed the wisdom of this world and the other world. Their gift of sensitivity and empathy was also respected.

3. YOU’VE EXPERIENCED A NEAR-DEATH, OUT-OF-BODY OR MYSTICAL EXPERIENCE

To be called a shaman, you must experience death and rebirth. Thus, most shamans experience a near death experience or a life threatening problem. Only after healing from this condition can a shaman really possess true powers.

4. YOU’VE FELT A SUBTLE HEALING ENERGY IN YOUR HANDS

You have the ability to control and manipulate energy in others’ bodies.

5. YOU CAN EASILY ‘READ’ OTHERS

People having Shamanic frequency are able to feel and tell people’s emotions and problems. Thus, you can even tell sometimes about the possible solutions for a problem without even knowing it.

6. YOUR ANCESTORS WERE ALSO HEALERS

Many a times it is observed that the shamanic abilities are inherited from the forefathers. Thus if your father or grandfather was a shaman, there is real chance that you are too.

7. YOU CAN SEE THINGS THAT OTHERS CAN’T SEE

You have been introduced to the hidden dimensions at a very early age. Thus you can see and feel things that others cannot. To control this huge influx, you must have fluidity in your mind.

What do you think about these signs? Are you showing any of these signs? Maybe you know someone who is.

Let us know your thoughts!

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “October: The Spiritual Power Month Of The Year”

Ascension Avatar note: I’m reluctantly posting this since I feel too many people have an over-dependence on ‘invoking spirits’ to do their work instead of clearing entity attachments and standing strong as a God-sovereign being… but to each his/her own!

💗

 

Now that we are about to change our calendar from September to October, we might as well know something interesting about the upcoming month.

October is considered to be the most powerful spiritual month of the year. This is the time when we delve deep into our inner self spiritually. We might also feel haunted sometimes during this month.

If we notice deep, we feel the presence of something around us. Nonetheless, the aura is filled up with energy that makes us feel more alive. It is said that in this month, the spirits roam around us in a more prevalent manner than the other eleven months we have.

Our lives depend on the dimensions that we live in. During October, it is believed that the dimension in which we reside meets with the one in which spirits are contained. The thin line of control between these two dimensions are blurred in this month.

Thus we mark this time to honor the dead and deceased. We honor our loved ones who left us timely or untimely. In this commemoration, we just do not have our family members but our pets too.

The period that has been attributed to the blurring of the thin veil between the two worlds spans from around October 8th to November 11th of each year. You can light a candle during this time period, and remember the quality time you spent with your loved ones and their cherished memories as they remain no longer with you in the physical world.

You can arrange a special spot like an altar for them who are no more, put some candles, their pictures, their favorite flowers, and incense stick. Light a candle every day at the altar with the incense stick, and say whatever you want to convey to the deceased ones.

It is believed that they hear you and feel happy that you still remember them. In other cultures too, October is the month of paying homage to the dead ones. For example, in Hinduism, they have “pind-daan“, i.e. the ritual of the donation of food and clothes for their deceased loved ones during this month.

You might feel their presence if you follow these steps in the month of October.

Furthermore, this is the month of the autumn season where we witness the shedding of leaves all around. This shedding can be seen metaphorically and used as a learning lesson for our life, where you decide to shed negative energy and feelings from yourself and prepare a space for the good and positive aspects in our life, as a sign of renewal. Here, the blessings from the spirits can be enormously useful.

Also, Halloween is another aspect of this month. Now that the festival is all about spooky jokes and fun where the people celebrate all types of ghosts or spirits carelessly, we should be aware of the negative spirits we might invite in.

If you have a creepy and horror factor as the theme of your party, it might be possible that you are inviting the same kinds of spirits. Alternatively, if you have cheerful and playful spirits as your theme then you welcome the same kind.

There are few steps you can take to avoid the negativity, if present in the Halloween party such as laying low during the Halloween fever, meditating during the time you are anxious, doing historical themes ghost tours rather than the horror ones, etc.

There are other holidays related to spirits in different countries and cultures where they take enough precautions to assure that nothing goes wrong, and only the positive and light-hearted spirits of their loved ones come forward.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “The Spiritual Significance of the Solstice — June 2018”

On June 21st the Sun shifts into the sign of Cancer signalling the start of summer in the Northern Hemisphere and the start of winter in the Southern Hemisphere.

Just like we track the cycles of the Moon from New to Full, we can track the cycles of the Sun. The word Solstice translates to “Sun standing still” and is a significant and sacred turning point that will bring a shift in energy.

In the Northern Hemisphere, we have the longest day of the year and the highest expression of the Sun’s energy, but this energy will start slowing moving inwards and the days will get shorter as we head towards the Autumn/Fall Equinox.

In the Southern Hemisphere, we have the shortest day of the year, and the lowest expression of the Sun’s energy. After this, the energy starts becoming more expansive, and the days get longer as we move towards the Spring Equinox.

We are all one, we are all connected, and we all live on the same planet, so to some extent we will all feel these energies in different ways.

Read about the significance for both the Summer and Winter Solstice below and how you can use the energy-

Summer Solstice (Northern Hemisphere)

The Summer Solstice is the highest point of energy for the year. We are bathed in the full power of the Sun and everything is illuminated.

The Sun is where we receive our life force energy, it is where we get our power and sustenance. Without the Sun, there would be no life.

Under the Summer Solstice, we are all going to be given a boost of power and a boost of energy in order to complete our goals and to get to work on creating whatever it is that we desire.

We are going to be guided to illuminate areas of our lives that have been hidden and we are going to be encouraged to step forward for all of the world to see.

Whatever seeds we have planted during the Spring Equinox will now be in full bloom, and we will be able to reap the rewards of our harvest.

This is a powerful time for manifestation work, to give thanks to the Sun, and to recharge our own life force energy.

Doing things that make us feel alive and getting out in nature are all great ways to honor this special time of year.

While the Summer Solstice is a perfect time to celebrate the Sun, the giver of life, there is also a deeper knowing that Autumn is coming, and eventually we, along with Mother Earth will have to shed, release, and let go in order to be reborn.

If we look to nature for guidance, everything is alive and vibrant under the Sun, but soon enough the leaves will start to turn brown and we will enter into a new point in the cycle of life and death.

Life is forever changing, and nothing ever stays the same. While our time under the rays of the warm Sun is beautiful and bright, eventually we will reach a point where we have harvested and expressed ourselves all we can, and the time will come to retreat within.

Just like the seasons, we are always changing and we are always being encouraged to go with the flow of our lives. This is the perfect time to honor all that you are, and to remember that the light will rise once again.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “The Spiritual Significance of the March Equinox 2017”

The Spiritual Significance of the March 2017 Equinox

The annual March 20-21 Equinox heralds the start of the astrological new year and the start of a new season.

In the Northern Hemisphere, the March Equinox represents the starting of Spring and a time where the energies of new birth and creativity are at their highest.

In the Southern Hemisphere, the March Equinox symbolises the starting of Autumn, a time to release and let go of the old in order to prepare for the winter.

No matter where you live, the Equinox is a significant spiritual and astrological event that you can use to tap into the wisdom and energy of Mother Earth and the Universe.

Equinoxes happen twice a year and occur when the hours of light and dark are equal. There is rich symbolism here, which makes the Equinox a wonderful time to celebrate the duality of life.

On this physical realm, in this 3D world there is duality. On the energetic realms however, there is only one.

It is easy for us to rationalize and understand separation and duality with our logical minds, but when you enter into the higher realms, you understand that everything is connected and we are all one in the same.

This can be seen in the yin and yang symbol. There is a little bit of everything, in everything and together it all makes up a whole.

Perhaps we are reminded of this fact on the Equinox.

There is no lightness reigning supreme over darkness, there is no darkness overcoming lightness, instead everything is in balance.

This balance helps to remind us about the sweetness and bitterness to life. This balance helps to remind us that at the end of the day, we are all equal and we are all the same.

All of us here on this planet are simply on a journey. Even though our journeys may look different, they are probably more similar and connected than we realize.

The 2017 Equinox is the perfect time to honor all areas and aspects of your life and the circumstances that surround you.

It is the perfect time to bring acceptance to your life no matter the circumstances or the judgements over what is good and what is bad, and to instead honor the journey.

It is also a time to celebrate how far you have come and how much you have grown over the course of the year.

The March Equinox is also considered the start of the astrological new year. This is because the Sun shifts into the constellation of Aries, which is regarded as the first out of the 12 constellations used in astrology.

Whether you live in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere, the energy of Aries makes it a perfect time to start thinking about what is next and what you would like the next few months to feel like.

Perhaps make a list of all the feeling words you would like to create in your life moving forward and see if you can start creating those feelings in small ways every single day.

This year’s Equinox is the perfect time to honor the growth and the pain, the light and the darkness and all the experiences that have made you who you are today. It is the perfect time to love yourself and learn to find gratitude and peace with the journey you are on.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “The Spiritual Significance of November 11”

November 11.png

November 11 is a vibrationally powerful day due to the fact that it is the 11th day of the 11 month.

1111 or 11/11 holds special spiritual significance as it is believed to be the number of spiritual awakenings and powerful new beginnings.

When you frequently see 11:11 on the clock or when you are drawn to the number 1111, it often indicates an upcoming change or awakening that is on the horizon for you.

Angels, spirit guides and the Universe also use numbers as a way to connect and communicate with you. 1111 is commonly used by Divine beings to help point you in the right direction and to illuminate the path ahead for you.

In numerology, the number one indicates new beginnings but when there is a series of ones, like on November 11 (11/11) it creates a powerful energy for the day that allows us to all awaken to a new potential.

November 11 is therefore a powerful time to make changes in your life, set intentions or to dig deeper in order to uncover the truth.

New awakenings, new information and new levels of enlightenment are all possible on this day due to this energy.

2016 is a number 9 year, which means that this year November 11 is going to fall under the vibration of number 9.

Number 9 is all about endings, which means that November 11 is likely to bring new information to light that will allow one door to close and another to open.

November 11 may also help inspire you to think bigger and to start thinking about what you want this new chapter to look like for you.

Astrologically, November 11, 2016 is also a significant day due to the energy of the planet Venus.

Venus is considered the feminine goddess of the zodiac and her energy is going to be particularly strong on November 11 as well.

Venus is going to be helping us to open our hearts and see things from a place of unconditional love rather than fear.

In fact, the potent energy from Venus is also going to support us awakening to the infinite potential of our soul and the magic that lies within.

Venus energy is also going to be supporting us to think with our hearts instead of our heads and open up to the possibility of unconditional love for all beings. Romance and creativity is also going to be high on this day and this energy will carry us all through the rest of the week.

This powerful feminine energy is going to help all of us, both men and women, to embrace our inner goddess and to find the beauty, joy and optimism in life again.

If life has been feeling sluggish for you, if you have been feeling sick and tired of the same old thing, November 11 is definitely going to bring a breath of fresh air.

In order to use the energy of November 11 to your advantage, you have to activate it. You have to open your heart to the energy and welcome in the vibration of new beginnings.

For the most potent effect, set your alarm for 11:11 on November 11. Then at this time, set a new intention, affirmation or do a heart opening exercise to help you awaken to whatever messages you need to hear.

November 11, is also a great day to reach out your angels and spirit guides for divine inspiration.
