I have been practicing shamanism and studying with shamans for seven years now and am amazed at how a teacher shows up right after I've made a huge shift in my own healing. Every time this happens my journeys take me to a new level, including the ability to journey without a drum. It was on one such journey that I was taught about energy and how powerful our thoughts are. I was laying on the floor of my son's “band” house. It was late and dark. I was staring at a spiral that the boys had painted on the ceiling above me when I began to drift into that dream like state between being awake and sleeping. The sounds below of the popular tourist destination of south street were muffled. Next thing I knew I was standing in the water at the edge of a large lake. I was gazing at the twilight sky above when I felt myself flying into space. My guides took me to a neutron star and I hovered in the space before it. I watched in utter amazement as the star spun hundreds of times per second. It was so bright but I could see it sparkle and spin. I felt the particles of the star blast through my body and I was in bliss! I stayed with this energy with no fear until nature called and I came back to my body. I was buzzing with energy when I came to and had to suddenly relieve myself. I thought “that's odd, I haven't had anything to drink for a while”. I was bummed that my journey cut off so suddenly. I had been in deep. I went to lay down and once again stared at the spiral the kids had painted. It wasn't long before I was in that in-between state and I found myself in the lake again! This time I was floating in the water and staring at the stars. I suddenly noticed out of the corner of my eye waves of energy flowing up. I sat up and was immediately surrounded by the most incredible sound I have ever heard! Everything was vibrating it's own vibration and it's own sound! It was so crazy loud but just like the energy of the star, I was able to experience it and absorb it without fear. I could hear a symphony of vibration and yet I could hear each individual note at the same time. The sound waves shooting up began to glow with color and shoot out into space. That is when my guides explained that mother earth and all her beings have the power and energy of that neutron star. They also said that our thoughts are included in this song and that mother earth's vibration changes and sends different sound waves through space depending on our thought messages. My guides asked me if I understood and I replied yes. The vision ended quickly and I came back to the bustling sounds of south street, pulsing with energy and grateful.
