Guidance is a column including the partial description of journeys, practices and other shamanic experiences related to the current seasonal cycle. These guidances constitute a short anthology of my early voyages, which do not necessarily coincide with my current experience and understanding. I offer them trusting that they can help triggering your own visions and insights.
The meeting with the Spirit Guide, or Core Multidimensional Identity, is an actual meeting of love, the peak love experience for a human being. It is the acknowledgement of the relationship which has always been with you, tenderly following you throughout all ages, partaking of the secrets and intimate movements of your heart.
The connection with the Guide is the highest love experience. It reveals the true face of every being and situation, it teaches you to respect your true nature, it reminds you of who you are. Its bliss is so boundless that, in order to be accessible to the awareness of your limited perception, it has to use fragmented ways of expressions.
In the Guide you find the love you have always looked for: an eternal love, which cannot be halted. This relationship is so easy and simple and spontaneous. Yet, to the insane perception of human beings, accustomed to fight, effort, strife, competition, pain and suffering, such simplicity can be distorted as an intricate and unfathomable mystery.
The major difficulty in relating with the Guide consists of accepting, and being aware of, what has always been there and always will be. This involves realising that the power of decision as regards the consent to this relationship merely relies on you.
The Guide is available at all times, waiting for you in the glorious land that exists beyond the insanity of this world. The place where you go whenever, either out of exhaustion or conscious choice, you leave your toys of separation and choose to look within, effortlessly receiving the essence of love.
Such essence is unconditional. It does not require you to do anything special to deserve it. You are entitled to it as long as you decide that this is so. You know how to connect with the Guide. All this is spontaneous as the authentic expression of love. Simply follow the natural élan of your heart.
Each human relationship is indeed the symbolic representation of that with the Guide. As long as there is this awareness, human relationships are sacred. If this is not the case, what follows is inevitably pain, loss, and all kinds of grievance.
It is not possible for a single human body to contain the overflowing abundance of the Guide. Sacred relationships between human beings involve the active participation of the Guide. In this way each relationship is acknowledged as part of the Whole and you release the hallucination of separation.
If you have problems with a partner or friend, ask your Guide to relate with the Guide of the person involved. Guides know what is to be done and how to heal a relationship.
In astroshamanism you do not operate on the outer person, but solely in the shamanic world through your Guide. Your power consists of being a channel and allowing the energies to do their work. As far as I know, for the time being, there is no other function reserved to you.
