I've been thinking - people programmed from childhood to think and DO a certain way from birth. We call them regional affectations. Our speech pattern and dialects - our way of looking at others - our daily life patterns. They are all programmed into us by observation and education by our parents and peers.
Let me tell you a story
A Holiday Dinner
As a girl was growing up - every holiday dinner her mom would take out a beautiful ham to prepare.
She watched her mom trim the ham & cut the ends off and put it into the pan to roast.
Years later her when she had her own family and holiday dinners - mom came.
She stood in the kitchen - watching her daughter take out a beautiful ham - trim it - cut the ends off and place it in the roasting pan.
She looked at her daughter quizically and asked "Honey, why did you cut the ends of the ham?"
Her daughter looked at her and replied "it's the way you always did it".
The mother took her daughters hands and said "Honey, that was so it would fit in the pan".
How much of our attitudes that we hold as sacred truths, need to be re-evaluated?
Is what you hold as a Must or a Truth - just something that was taught/learned generationaly to fit within the pan of community expectations?
Open your mind again - look, question, challenge, evaluate what is true NOW vs THEN. Are you working, thinking, acting to fit within an outdated setup of expectations that are no longer morally centered? What's changed in the world since you learned to "cut the ends off" ... ?? ...
On Quora - it was asked how to stop a friend from dumping negative emotions on them.
It sparked quite a mirror moment for me. I'm sure this is not the whole thing - but it's the start of part of the Healing our MindBody Retreats for Shamiana
Q; How do I stop my friend from dumping negative emotions on me?
Define FRIENDSHIP for yourself. Many do not know that their “friends” are actually only acquaintances - where there are no life connections, no shared history, no give and take of experiences and time together.
That will help you determine if you want to try to help them - or just remove your interactions with them (which includes unfriending on social media).
If though they are a long time friend - shared times - you’d do nearly anything for each other - travel to each others homes etc. Then the choice is harder.
“getting dumped on” is a two way street with multiple oddly shaped intersections and glorietas (round-a-bouts)
So it’s not a quick or easy question - and it means you have to look to YOU and YOUR ROLE in the interactions as well.
Hmmmm time to restack our own mind game.
The power of forgiveness is 100% yours.
No one can give it to you
No one can take it away from you
To give or withold forgivness is to have 100% control
of your heart, mind and souls future.
To forgive someone that others feel is beyond forgiving
is to free yourself from the destructive bonds
that the hate, anger and pain created.
I forgive you.
I forgive Myself!
I am free !

This is a big can of worms to say the least. You will run into those that say "I'm a shaman - yeah". But your radar goes BOING and the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and go "Bullshit". The hairs on your neck react differently then the ones on your arms . LOL . REALLY! Okay back to topic...
Being a Shaman today carries an expectation in peoples minds. That you're going to CURE THEM of Any and EVERYTHING that is wrong with them. That you'll be their doctor, their priest, their exorcist, the father/mother confessor. They'll presume that you can and will cure them of ever single thing that they've fought with health wise for decades (longer or shorter) and that you will do it in ONE SESSION - IMMEDIATELY - THE GOD ACT - just for them!
Oh and that you'll maybe do this miracle FOR FREE because "you're a shaman".
Being a true shaman isn't something you claim - it is your essence, your being, backed up by training. Either training in shamanic cultures, healing modalities that are often thousands of years old (read tried, tested and true) methods of NOT taking away symptoms but of helping heal the ROOT CAUSE of what you may be fighting.
Some shamans work on connections to the spirit realm. Dealing with death issues. Some work on past life. Some work at the medical level. Some work to reconnect your intuitive self to the land and nature as well as to others. Some teach courses in healing or other studies that connect you back to natural ways of eating, being, existing, thinking, walking the planet. Some do many things - some do 1 thing.
ALL will have that certain spark that will draw you to them. Though yes, cons have A Spark but if you pay attention (not $$) you'll soon filter them out of it's all fizzle and no substance. Just saying.
Yes, Shamiana Kate is a multi dimensional Shaman. Walking in the world between the physical, spiritual and etheric planes.
Able to touch many points of time and space and SEE within the person I'm working with where the planes are out of focus/balance - bound together incorrectly and how to unwind them. I'm able to hear you, your body and often your loved ones. I hear the voices of the plants and nature - my greatest teacher of how to use their healing gifts.
I can help guide you to focus on a new self talk , to feel within where things are "wonky" and how to talk to yourself differently. I work with homeopathic plant based medicine as well as modern medicines when those are called for. We have to acknowledge that science in some situations has improved the efficacy of the original plant for a more rapid and targeted solution. not always - but sometimes. And sometimes surgical intervention is needed and that I'll send you to the best starting point I know or can find.
Whoops back to topic
Walking the Shaman path doesn't mean that you wear beads and have a certain hair style or dress style (though you may as a part of your true to self essence).
It means your heart and mind are open.
That you're willing to "suffer the slings and arrows" of those living 'in the normal world' that "don't get you" or think you are full of crap.
It's not being caught up in trying to live in the expectations of others thoughts.
It's standing true to a moral center of knowing
It's giving true to your ability - information to your client - even when that truth is NOT what they wanted to hear!
It's knowing that while you have a Divine gift - that you still have bills to pay - but that barter of equal may be considered.
It's following your Guides - and knowing that even you get answers you don't like <grin>
It's allowing yourself a space to heal - so that you can impart that same allowing to others.
It's NOT an ego trip - though those of us with far reaching gifts have very strong ego's - we don't live to feed that ego.
a Note to the Shamans
It is NOT about going it alone!
For too long, hollywood has portrayed the shaman as a solitary figure. Horse Hockey.
It is about COMMUNITY! WE, those that are Shamans, medicine women, alternative practitioners and healers - need to remember the true roots of what we are/do.
WE ARE A COMMUNITY! It's time to come out of our caves of singularity and join together in solidarity.
We need to ReForm our Shamanic Councils and come back together as groups. To remember that when a patient/client comes - it's triage each time.
Asking "What do they need RIGHT NOW". It's what I ask every time a patient comes to me.
Then as a council - it may be they work with 1 person or they work with several.
So this is the Shamiana Call to the Shamans and Healers.
Are you ready to work with a council of healers ? Location is Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - but many of us can reach across space and work remotely as well.

I’ve heard the videos expressions of Buddhism before – but often they are muddled by translation.
This English female Buddhist Monk is clear, concise and very to the point.
If we assign an expectation to another in the name of love – it’s not love.
We’ve set them up to FAIL US .. omg how could you not meet MY EXPECTATION?
We must fill ourselves with passion and joy, acceptance and harmony. Then we can move within a relationship, holding no unrealistic expectations and accepting the one we love for who they are and as they are.
Our Expectations are NOT that they’ll be faithful, take out the trash, be a good parent etc etc .. those are moral obligations and commitments.
Expectations are often unvoiced. “You’ll be good to me. You’ll be my ultimate sex partner. You’ll shower me with gifts and praise. You’ll be equal to the pedestal upon which I’ve placed you. That you will share my exact, holding type of “love”. You will make me feel perfect. You’ll ignore all my faults. You’ll put me on a pedestal. You’ll make sure I love myself and am fulfilled.
