This New Moon in Sagittarius has us feeling inspired to shift, expand and explore!
In this broadcast I discuss the need for recognizing and moving out our of smallness and into being big and bright. The massage that come through most strongly for me was this: YOU CAN DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY!
Wow, such an empowering "nudge" from the Universe.
We spend time in a shamanic drumming meditation that I invite you to use again and again to keep moving through what no longer serves. The drum itself is alive and has been crafted and cared for with love. Hopefully you can hear its resonance and willingness to heal and clear you with not only the rhythms but also the energy of the sounds it creates.
It is interesting to note that in ancient shamanic drumming traditions they held that the drum, like all our relations, is alive, and it is trying to tell us something. As such they taught those using the drum as well as this receiving the energy of the drum to listen very carefully to the sound of the drum.
According to Rowland Barkley: The drum is the principal vehicle the shaman rides across the dimensions.
There are many existing theories as to how the Shamanic Drum alters consciousness:
* Association with the mother's heartbeat in the womb
This theory would suggest the instinctive mind has the archetype triggered of the journey in the womb towards life, and the lighted spaces within the Labyrinth in which we journey are morphologically similar to lifetimes and the learnings of each.
* High component of Delta brain frequencies
The Delta brain frequencies are between ½ Hz to 4Hz, and commonly occur during deep hypnosis accompanied by strong visualizations, and various other deep states of consciousness, including Superlearning states, where music is played at 1Hz to enhance learning,. The rhythm of the shamanic drum is within this frequency, and a good shamanic drum also emits a high component of such frequencies. Such frequencies are not in the theoretical range of human hearing, but they do have many strong effects upon the human body.
* Drowning out regular senses by overloading
The “rational” self is a web of almost unlimited fixed ideas that bear little relationship to present reality. So some means of drowning this out can be vital to explore different and more useful ideas. A monotonous drum beat can be very effective for this.
* Resonance with electromagnetic pulses of the Earth
Each lightning strike reverberates around the Earth several times, and in every instant, lightning is always striking somewhere. This is a continual resonance, and a skilled Shamanic drummer will easily beat exactly in time to this rhythm.
This Saggitarius season is a time for learning... developing one's spiritual path... and deepening one's soul journey in this lifetime. These Sagittarius energies taken together with the new moon energies are times for learning to "see" and "be" and exist in new ways. This is perfect timing for the Goddess Consciousness Course, which begins on December 26th, 2020. You can find out more information and sign up for the course here.
