I am slowly learning about moderating this group-- and learning how to change settings to make it more user-friendly.
Crow and I have been busy getting ready for our trip to Hungary, we leave Monday, and return on the 9th of June. The last month has been filled with lots of have-tos in order to prepare. I will attempt to check in here while traveling but don't know yet whether circumstances will allow it. I will have an update from the shamanic conference after I get back.
In the meantime, I'd like to leave you with some thoughts about this Network.
I see this group as a place to bring thoughts, questions and concerns about shamanic healing. While this is not a teaching site, it is a place to share experiences and get feedback. I'm sure the group will grow too and bring new things to the table. I know we can engage in useful and consciousness-raising dialog about healing each other, ourselves and the planet.
Hi Bekki - this is a wonderful group that resonates with me at every level. I hope you have a great trip to Hungary and I look forward to sharing and hearing from others, those shamanic stories that consciously raise awareness of the Oneness that is the web of life...
INTRODUCING MYSELFMEMBERSHIP REQUEST May 15, 2008 11:51 AM
HI,I'M PRESENTING MYSELF.I'M ZORROLORI,BESIDES BEEING AN ARTIST PAINTER I'M ALSO A -WILLING TO BE HEALER.AND THAT'S BECAUSE AFTER ALL THE TEACHINGS THAT I RECEIVED,I WAS PARALIZED BY THE RESPONSIBILITY,AND EVEN AFTER SOME WARNINGS,I COULDN'T FEEL COMFORTABLE IN SAYING PEOPLE THAT THE THINGS THAT I FELT, WERE THERE . TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH,ALL THE TIME I WAS SERIOUSLY WORRIED ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF MAKING A MISINTERPRETATION,AND I GAVE UP,BUT AS YOU SEE,NOT ENTIRELLY,IF THERE'S SOMEONE WHO COULD HELP ME IN THIS CASE,I'LL BE VERY,VERY GRATEFUL.
Welcome Sandra, i'm glad you have found this group. I have been out of town for a week and not had access to email, so am just getting yours. What is ZORROLORI ?
The call to be a healer often requires us to go through our own healing process, and look at those elements of ourselves that can get in our way. Since I don't know what kind of healing work you feel called to do I am not sure what your training might be or you have been doing for your own healing. You might want to look at why you are concerned about making an error-- how much of your concern is coming from a lack of knowledge or actually having done some damage to another person, and how much may be residual from childhood issues? Many of us who do healing work are hypervigilant in protecting our clients, because we are afraid of doing damage or making a mistake in judgment. This can be based in fear of judgment from others because we experienced punishment or ridicule as children, but there are many potential causes for fear of this kind, which is not based in our current reality.
Or we may on some level feel inadequately prepared for dong healing work. When my husband and I teach our shamanic intensive training each student has 4 or 5 supervised sessions with clients, and recieves feedback from us on their work, as well as from the client. This helps them see that they really are ready to do the work, and they have confidence to do it on their own.
It is often helpful to examine what is getting in our way when we have these feelings. If you have trouble sorting out the cause and whether your feelings are realistic or not, ask for feedback from teachers or mentors and from clients you have done healing for. Then you can address the issues by getting more training (if you need more skills) or you can find another healer to work with you on the emotional issues that affect your confidence.
thanks for the welcome.I've been trained some years ago by a healer who lives in USA,and felt immediately a strong connection with the idea,and after the teachings were done,I became fully aware of the immense responsability of the job when I felt a big health trouble in one person and was paralised by the idea that I have to tell what I was feeling in ,and decided to stop.Beeing in England a few years ago,I went to visit a shaman healer,and she told me that I MUST work in this,that I have to be confident in my "sensations",otherwise I'll begin to feel incomplete,wich is true,but the fact remains that I'm afraid to make any mistake regarding such a serious matter.I used to work with my dogs and horses-but only ours-submitting them to the Reiki,but people...Anyway,here I am,a little bit stuck...any suggestions?As the name Zorrolori-are the name of two of my dogs...well thats all for now.Thanks very much.
