The Beginner Guide To Shamanic Journeying

The Beginner Guide To Shamanic Journeying Cover

Book: The Beginner Guide To Shamanic Journeying by Sandra Ingerman

Shamanic journeying is the inner art of traveling to the "invisible worlds" beyond ordinary reality to retrieve information for change in any area of our lives—from Spirituality and health to work and relationships. On The Beginner’s Guide to Shamanic Journeying, Sandra Ingerman shares the core teachings of this transformative practice, including the original role of the shaman in indigenous societies, how to meet and work with your "power animal" and other spirit teachers, and the keys to successful journeying in our modern culture. Complete with authentic drumming and guidance for three shamanic journeys.

I was highly impressed with insights and suggestions on this recording. One can put only so much information on one CD and for what you can learn and experience as a newcomer to Shamanic Journeying in a little bit more than ONE HOUR, I have found this CD awesome.

I particularly liked suggestions relating how to ask good questions and set an intent for a journey. One particular suggestion would apply to any form of divination.

For example, if you ask your spirit helper (power animal, etc.) "Should I marry so and so?", the spirit helper may say "Sure, go ahead". Then when you get married to that person, you find out that the marriage was a complete disaster and start to wonder about the effectiveness of Shamanic journeying.

Sandra points out that spirit helpers view everything as a "learning experience", so the most appropriate question would be "What will I learn if I marry so and so?" The answer may be "betrayal" and you may decide that you don't really care much to learn about betrayal, to which your spirit helper answers, "OK, then, don't marry that person".

The quality of the questions we ask greatly influences the quality of helpful information we get.

This CD has contains about one hour of information consisting of Introduction to shamanic journeying and a lot of good key points for successful journeying and then about 10 minutes or drumming and rattling for the actual journeying experience. I think it is a wonderful gift for someone who wants to get a taste of shamanic journeying.
