The 'Shamanic Meditation Studies' Sharings

January 2021 — Shamanic Meditation Studies – Conscious Dreaming!

January 2021 — Shamanic Meditation Studies – Conscious Dreaming!

I plan to hold our December meeting on Saturday January 16, at 3 pm Arizona (5 pm eastern) time.

Even though I could not adequately articulate it as a boy, I have always felt disenchanted with the odd mix of operational theologies featured in my (our) upbringing. The "ceramic" model of the universe is driven by the belief in a Supreme God that breathes life into the world, out of his own image. The other offering is the "automatic" model that supposes that conscious is a derivative of mind, and functions according to clock-like mechanical principles. Those nonsensical and contradictory belief driven life models never made any sense to me. And, they do not match what is expedience when I forget to think my way into existence. In addition, the idea of a permanent heaven and hell (eternal pain and eternal peace?!) ranks up there with Santa Claus, and the Easter bunny, etc.

In stark contrast to those still operational childish paradigms, the "shamanic dream" cosmology is driven by a relentless focus on an unfiltered view of reality. For those of us that recall past lives, have had out of body experiences, or are experienced bardo travelers, the shamanic dream model of life recognizes the timeless and ever-changing nature of reality. Whew…

The reality is that we can never forget who we are, only who we imagine ourselves to be. Let's continue to inspire and be inspired by each other to make this life into a waking dream. Please stop the search for something that cannot be found – only revealed.

Please carve some time out of your day, every day, to consciously make room for the interdependent nature of reality to find you and blossom within, and as you. It is hidden right in plain sight. In the space between two thoughts and two seemingly separate objects that appear in life. Please share what you uncover…

 "An open heart is like the wilderness, often overlooked amongst the weeds."

December 2020 — Shamanic Meditation Studies – The Dreamer!

December 2020 — Shamanic Meditation Studies – The Dreamer!

I plan to hold our December meeting on Saturday December 19, at 2 pm Arizona (4 pm eastern) time. (Note: time change)
 

The Shamanic Dreamer model of the Universe is that we are the very fabric and structure of existence itself; taking form while playing a game of hide and seek. The first realization to arise from the peace of the moment is that we are only pretending to forget who are.  And, that we as mere dream characters do not wake up from such folly. The Dreamer eventually realizes the value of waking up after not really falling asleep…

Together, we inspire each other to make this life into a waking dream. What is it going to take!

November 2020 — Shamanic Meditation Studies – Remembering

November 2020 — Shamanic Meditation Studies – Remembering
 
I plan to hold our November meeting on Saturday November 21, at 3 pm Arizona (5 pm eastern) time. (time change)
 
The relaxed feel of undivided attention (Presence) reveals a free-flowing and fluid Consciousness, beyond beliefs and expectations.
 
Transitory realms of consciousness are in plain sight. It is not a matter of going there, but finding a way to accommodate peace – here, and now. All of us Shamanic Dreamers need to deal with our individual contributions to the "dream of the planet." Now, is the perfect time to remember that we are dreamers and this is our dream!
 
We are here to inspire each other to wake up from our "particular" dream of separation. Particularly, when we notice how the focus of our attention is on looking for answers, and not on understanding the context of the query.
 
And, we are here to Remember that this is a life of service! 
 

September – October 2020 -– Shamanic Meditation Studies (Open Awareness)

September – October 2020 — Shamanic Meditation Studies  (Open Awareness)
 
I plan to hold our October Meeting on Saturday October 17 at 3 pm Arizona (6 pm eastern) time.
 
Please continue to make the time and space to Just Watch life flow through you during your busy day. Each day this month, invest at least 5 minutes without filtering life through a personal point of view.
 
Whenever I notice myself tense up in uncertain and divisive and times like these, I find it critical to make the choice to relax and open up the aperture of my awareness. There are three places in my physical being where that tension with life appears – my toes, fingers, and third eye. Knowing that, I make a conscious effort to relax into the tension that I feel in those areas.
 
The relaxed feel of undivided attention on the knot of tension reveals a free-flowing Consciousness, beyond the purview of the body/mind. That is when I am open to other transitory realms of existence (Bardo States) –  Consciousness beyond the material world. It is not a matter of going there, but making more room for there and here to converge.
 
We once thought and believed that the world was flat; we now know otherwise.  We also believed that consciousness does not survive bodily death; that certainly does not match my experiences. Check it out from the Dreamer's perspective – Open Awareness. Let go of all you believe you know…
 
Please post what you experience or don't experience…
 

Namaste,

June 2020 – Shamanic Meditation Studies – Shamanic Dreaming

June 2020 – Shamanic Meditation Studies – Shamanic Journeying

I plan to hold our June Meeting on Saturday June 20 at 3 pm Arizona (6 pm eastern) time.
 
1. Please, continue to make the time and space to Just Watch life flow through you during your busy day. Each day this month, invest at least 5 minutes without filtering life through a personal point of view. Consciously make room for life to just be, without labeling or judging anything, or anyone!  Please post what you experience…
 
2.The Shamanic Dream model of the world is that we are here (ordinary reality) playing a game of hide and seek – getting lost in dream personas that seem like they are out of our control. For me, shamanic journeying (dreaming) is a powerful way to consciously connect with, and wake up to, the parts of me that feel stuck in a tiresome dream of separation from the world (stranger in a strange land).
 
I propose that you go on a shamanic journey – to the 19 year old version of yourself.  Use a drum or journey music to facilitate your journey. Here is the intent for the journey – What piece of advice or wisdom would you share with the younger you – the one that has almost totally forgotten that life is but a dream?
 
And, then, to take that wisdom and integrate it into your current dream self by creating a new dream that bridges the gap between past and present, and self and other. As a follow-up to that experience, you and me will journey into shamanic states of consciousness, together.
 

I will introduce you to realms of existence on the astral planes. We can do that during our one-on-one meetings.
 
3. More to come.
 

Namaste,

Keshav
