Healing for the Web of Life
Location for Healing: Moloa’a Bay, Kauai
Below are the Results of our Group Shamanic Healing for the Web of Life Initiative for Moloa’a Bay. Each Time we Meet; our Intention will be to Restore Harmony and Balance to a Particular Location on the Earth.
Moloa’a is a Beautiful Bay and Beach on the North East Coast of Kauai that has come under increasing amounts of environmental stress over the past 5 years. Translation of the Hawaiian place name is “Tangled Roots”
Severe flooding in 2018 and 2015 has eroded the stream banks, washing debris and contaminants from upstream farms, houses and cesspools down to the ocean. As recently as 2013 our children used to swim and play freely in the water at the mouth of the stream; now we try to skip over when accessing the northern part of the beach so as not to expose ourselves to contaminant.
Healing From Narcissistic Abuse
A Shamanic Approach To Recovery
If you have ever been intimately involved with someone who suffers from symptoms of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD); you know how painful and challenging the process of recovery can be. If you have ever been a victim of gas-lighting and other forms of narcissistic abuse; you understand the confusion that comes from having your boundaries repeatedly violated. After the trauma of experiencing the basic norms of civil discourse and respect for your inherent psychic and emotional sovereignty being thrown to the wayside; it is easy to start to believe that your needs don’t matter; and by extension that you don’t matter.
Let us look at the problem of narcissistic abuse from a shamanic perspective.
All of us, every human being, possesses both a Logic Mind and a Spirit Mind. The Logic Mind is what we use to navigate our day to day life in ordinary waking reality. When we think, do math, drive a car, read a book, dial a phone number. etc; we are acting within the province of the Logic Mind. The Spirit Mind, is the realm of intuitive understanding, a place where our experiences can be described but not explained by logic. How, for example, can we logically explain the way we are able to move over space and time in a dream?
Shamanic awareness and shamanic healing is dependent upon the Shaman being able to consistently and effectively access the spirit mind and then return to normal waking consciousness.
