Spiritualism & Soul Journey Shamanism
Spiritualism is defined as:
a system of belief or religious practice based on supposed communication with the spirits of the dead, especially through mediums. As a philosophy: the doctrine that the spirit exists as distinct from matter, or that spirit is the only reality.
Shamanism is defined as:
(especially among certain tribal peoples) a person who acts as an intermediary between the natural and supernatural worlds, using magic to cure illness, foretell the future, control spiritual forces, etc.
If you look at these two terms you can truly see how closely they are related to one another, right?
A journey of the soul is to take on the mission of discovery of your soul's purpose. To find that which will make you joyous and complete in all areas of your life. A place where you decide to take on putting yourself in a place where you are in absolute satisfaction. Opening yourself to spiritual, physical and mental health.
I consider myself a Christian Spiritualist. As a matter of fact, I spent my teen years through adulthood in a church in San Francisco called the Metaphysical Christian Spiritualist Church, led by Reverend Jean Cook. I had the good fortune to have been exposed to metaphysics in a very open, progressive, accepting and Christian way. Spiritualism itself is a very accepting process that acknowledges that there is a wide variety in which individuals can connect to the divine energies of the universe. In the whole of the universe, it comes down to the energy that we engage with, for we are all energy. I have come to accept the evolution of my process to a space where I am able to connect to the Divine universal energy to communicate with spirit, connect to the other side and help individuals find answers, guidance and even peace.
I have been guided to where I am today, an individual who:
Connects to the universal spiritual energies as an intermediary between the natural and supernatural worlds to communicate, heal and deliver messages. In this I am a Soul Journey Shaman.
