This is the explanation in full that Jon Rasmussen has typically given before each shaman session to a new client. It is even helpful for those who have had extensive experiences working with alternative, energy medicine, and shamanic healers since his work tends to cover areas others don't. The first 19 minutes is an explanation of what a shaman is and Jon's particular background and shamanic lineage. The remaining time goes into detail of how it all works and preparing for a session.
How effective is your shaman session?
True shamanism is practical and pragmatic in that it is all about the results. The only reason I am still doing this after many years is that it works and my clients tell other people. My sessions are very comprehensive and efficient. The combination of insights and tools for the way you look at the world and more effectively create your experiences on the psychological level alone has been acknowledged and highly valued by all clients and psychology and coaching professionals that I have worked with. But the even greater value are the powerful shifts that occur at the deepest energetic and subconscious levels of your being that greatly help you more easily achieve the mindset and physical experiences that you prefer.
Having worked with thousands of clients who are range from their first experience with alternative healing to those who have been through every other modality including the best healers, shamans, and teachers from around the world, and helping them get the results they were looking for in often miraculous fashion as well, has convinced me of the powerful efficacy of my sessions. I have also helped many realize their own calling as a shaman, healer, teacher themselves and supported their journey to mastery.
Of course, even after clearing the way, you are still responsible to continue your work, including the post-session homework, and to create your own life experiences. The shaman does not offer a magic pill or quick fix, nor would take your power away by becoming an authority.
Do you have to believe it for it to work? Does it work for total skeptics?
No you don’t have to believe in shamanism, how it works, or me at all to get the same results as any other client. The work is happening below the level of the mind where your beliefs are held, so it works regardless. I have worked with the greatest skeptics, and I myself am one, and by the time we are done, they have changed their mind about it.
Is it just placebo effect?
No. Again, placebo effect operates only through the mind-body connection. The energy body or soul, also known as Aura and different name in each language is very real and is your essential self that operates in the physical world through the mind-body vehicle. Our shaman sessions engage and make changes directly to your soul level. Placebo effect can always come into play, but doesn’t have to in order to produce results. Similar to the idea that a Doctor has to work directly on your body to suture an open gash to stop the bleeding, whereas placebo effect alone wouldn’t cause the wound to close. The shaman must work directly on the energy body in that way – a show is not enough.
Is it like Reiki, Massage, EFT, or EMDR?
Each of these modalities are extremely effective in and of themselves for working on specific issues at the physical, psychological, and emotional levels, and can also in some cases affect change on the soul level; whereas my shaman session covers all levels comprehensively and is a great complement to all other modalities. I consider all of them to be under the umbrella of shamanism in general, and we all bring the full variety of our training and gifts to our shamanic practice. I have studied and practiced quite a number of these modalities myself.
Is it like a past life regression, hypnosis, or psychic reading?
Each of these can be a part of the shaman session work and very insightful and helpful reframing your thought processes. Most of these would be the part of the shaman session that we call tracking, which is gathering information and insight that we would then work on changing if it serves your ultimate goal. Shamans know that it is often not enough just to understand in order to heal, but that through our work the healing happens first, then the understanding and new way of being can follow more quickly and easily.
Will I need to ingest any herbs, entheogens like Ayahuasca, or other substances during the session?
No. The way that I work during the session achieves all of the results you would get from those specialized forms of shamanic practices. Although using those kinds of sacred plant medicines may provide a more intense experience and altered state, it is not uncommon for clients to have similar yet milder experiences in my sessions. And you can have similar visions and insights during my session as well. I have worked personally in my own training with various plant medicines, and with clients who have traveled with me to Peru, and am a proponent of those specialties with whom they resonate. The only plant medicines involved in my shaman sessions are in my Agua de Florida mixture that I spray to clear the space and help clear energies form your body and luminous energy field/aura/soul.
How is your session different than other shamans?
Around the world there are many different forms, practices, and specialties of shamanism. Most importantly is that each and every individual will resonate with particular shamans, healers, and teachers. It is most important to follow your own inner guidance in that regard and work with whoever is most effective for you. In the experience of my clients, or the folks that find themselves sitting with me through their own manifestation, my sessions are the most comprehensive that they have ever experienced.
I am fortunate to cover a very large spectrum of forms and specialties from extensive and broad training and experience, as well as being trained by The Four Winds Society, which in and of itself has a very deep and broad training program. Their Healing the Light Body School also includes a very critical part of the training and work in the energetic initiation rites that have been kept and passed from teacher to student within the ancient Peruvian shamanic lineages since the beginning. In my experience, this unique quality makes up the greatest part of the effectiveness of my sessions.
Do I need to prepare?
No. Because the session is so comprehensive and works at a level below the mind and physical, there is literally nothing you need to do to prepare for the session. In fact, we could be in the middle of Grand Central Station, in a lousy state of mind or physical discomfort, and the work is just as effective as in the most pristine states. We can do a session anywhere and anytime.
Does it matter if I’m not feeling ready or in a good place?
No. We are rarely ready or in the best place to engage in an act of power of this magnitude, so it just doesn’t matter. Showing up is all you need to do.
Do I have to be good at meditating or quieting my mind?
No. No matter what you are thinking or feeling during a session, it cannot help or interfere with the work that me and my non-physical team are doing.
Will I get emotional or feel anything physical?
It is not necessary to feel anything during the session for it to be working, but it is not uncommon for emotions, thoughts, memories, and/or physical sensations to come up. They pass very quickly though, and I am completely non-judging, can’t be offended, and truly unaffected by whatever comes up. It is my expertise in holding a safe and sacred space for you, and the entire session is held in complete confidentiality.
How long does the session take?
A typical session for an individual takes about 1.5 hours and includes a very comprehensive and efficient explanation of shamanism, the processes, and our intake and exit consultation and tracking. The energetic work itself is not bound by the linear time and space of the physical world, a therefore can happen very quickly.
It is really only limited by the time it takes for me to formulated all the past life and ancestral energetic stories that I am clearing and changing so that I can tell you about it, and facilitate the processes on each of the levels. Sometimes the sessions will include more psychological and even physical clearing and healing work that can also take up some time. Sometimes those kind of more extensive sessions can take up to 2 or so hours. But that will be more at your discretion.
Will I be tired after the session and/or need time to recover before I drive or do anything else?
Not necessarily. Usually the session is very restful, relaxing, and rejuvenating like a long good sleep. So it is fine to do anything you want or need to do after the session.
Do I need to do anything specific after our session? And can I contact you with questions?
There are some simple homework processes that I explain to you and also have on my website to support you and the integration of the work for some days to a couple of weeks after the session. And, you are always free to contact me afterwards with questions.
How many sessions will I need?
My sessions are also quite unique among my peers because I really do two or three sessions in one compared to how we were all trained. So my initial assumption will be that the one session with some of the simple homework that I assign to integrate the work will be sufficient. However, it is never a bad idea to follow-up at least once to check in on the results.
I have some clients that like to meet with me for one aspect of the work or another every month, quarter, or year just to help stay on top of their complex lives and how it might be influencing them presently. Since the world is still not conducive to staying perfectly clear on the soul level, even though we cleared all of the past, past lives, and ancestral imprints, it may make sense to do a maintenance session based on more recent negative encounters.
Will I get results right away?
There are many factors that determine how quickly your life experiences shift from our session(s). Some results are experienced immediately, and some may take months, and everywhere in between. In the experience of my clients and my own personal experiences, this work produces the quickest results of any other known healing, spiritual, or wisdom modality and teaching. Of course as a complement to all others, nothing beats it.
Most results happen within days and weeks if the homework is done accordingly and/or you have other effective practices. And I encourage you to continue and have effective practices on the mythic, psychological, and physical levels for quality of life in general.
Does what we clear come back, or is it permanent?
What we clear does not come back. Work on the energetic level is permanent. But in order to experience a permanent shift in your life experiences it helps to maintain healthy practices as mentioned in the question above. The only way and energetic imprint would “come back” is if you were re-wounded and didn’t process and release in the moment. But hopefully the work we do together would give you the permission to fully and quickly process all painful experiences going forward.
Is it against my religion?
No. Shamanism forms the original structure and basis for religion, but is not institutionalized and without rules and scripture of its own; therefore all religions, beliefs, spiritual practices, science, atheism, and agnosticism can be supported by the shamanic work and techniques that we employ in the sessions, and as homework. There is no need for anything we do in a session to be at odds with your beliefs for it to still work. My clients have covered the entire span mentioned above, and the comfort level and results of the session have not wavered.
Is it a magic button, or do I still have to do some work after?
It is the most powerful work and opportunity for miracles, but ultimately you are still responsible to create your own life experiences. So no, it is not a magic button that gets you off the hook for all the choices you make going forward. Nothing is.
Can it replace my psychologist, medication, or other practices?
You must consult your doctors in the normal manner after our session. I would encourage you to continue with what is working for you on the psychological, spiritual, and physical levels. It has been the experience of my clients that my sessions accelerate the results of everything else they are doing, and many have had the breakthroughs they were hoping for.
I have often worked effectively in collaboration with a client’s psychologist, medical doctor, and spiritual teachers. The idea is to cover every level without skipping one. It just so happens that what most people on the planet today are skipping, are the critical levels that my shaman sessions address most effectively.
How does it work over the phone or Online and remotely?
It is identical in every way to an in person session, except of course for my physical touch. It is however common for my clients to have the same physical experiences during the session as they do in person. Since the focus of the work is on the soul or energy body level, it is non-local and outside of ordinary space and and even linear time, so it is quite limitless in scope and application.
Can you work on someone without them knowing?
Sometimes I get the request to work on a friend or loved one who may otherwise not be open or incapacitated. It is possible, but this creates a fine line bordering on sorcery. What distinguishes shamanism and sorcery are the shaman is interested in simply empowering the client who is asking, to free and empower them to improve their own quality of life; whereas, a sorcerer will use the same techniques to work on someone who is not asking in order to take their power away or produce a result on someone other than the client to make the client’s life easier.
For example, a client will hire a sorcerer to kill his enemies or fight of the curse from another sorcerer; whereas a shaman will empower the client not to create enemies in the first place and not be subjective to sorcery at all.
So, if it can be determined that the person who doesn’t know would want me to work on them, as opposed to just the requesting person wanting it, then it is doable. Or, if it is not about the requesting person’s experience at all, then I can offer the work to the other person’s soul just to help free and empower them, and they may accept or reject it.
Can you work on babies and children?
Yes. They take to the work very well. And since the conditions don’t affect the work, it’s okay if the baby or child is playing or squirreling around during the session. And of course they don’t need all the explanation and dialogue I usually do with an older person.
Can you work on animals, objects, houses, and land?
Yes. The work is equally effective without limits. I would note however, that it is usually important to work on the animal’s owner as well, as the animal often takes on the issues that might otherwise have manifested in the owner. Same for all objects, houses, land, etc. as the owner’s affinity to the energies contained therein also needs addressing in order not to just keep attracting the same thing or energy over and over after we clear it.
Can you work on groups and organizations? If so, what is the maximum number?
Yes. I can work on any number of people all at the same time. Even to me it is miraculous how I can even keep track of all that I need to tell each in the group. Of course purely logistically speaking the form and presentation of the work with groups above 12 or so requires less personal attention. Nonetheless, each person gets the results they want from the work. It also works on groups and organizations as a whole as if it is one being.
Can you work remotely without phone or Skype connection?
Yes. My sessions are not limited by time and space in any way. In fact, people have reported, and I have experienced full sessions happening even in our sleep. I dream of it, and/or they dream of it. And my lineage and non-physical team have worked on and contacted people in dreams, meditations, and visions. Really anything seems to be possible once you engage with my work and lineage in any way.
Shouldn’t shamans work for free?
Before the use of money, and in many primary cultures still, it was most common that the shaman had or was provided what they needed to live in the village, and worked freely. However, even then it was customary for the client to offer some kind of gift in exchange for the shaman’s work. This is mostly because if the client doesn’t give something finite in return, they may feel obligated to pay energetically, which is hard to measure and know when to stop, which is not good for the client at all, and not needed by the shaman at all.
So, I will work for free if necessary, but even the gift of a rock is good for the previous reason. At the same time, our modern society doesn’t generally value this kind of work (heck, we don’t even value teachers nearly enough, just to name one critical service). And unfortunately, like in many vocations there are some charlatans who take money for nothing, which doesn’t help. Nonetheless, most shamans like me have to pay rent, food, clothing, gas, and etc. And most commonly the shamans like me never quit their day job as a result. But that severely limits how much of their gifts they can be giving to those who are asking.
So it is necessary to receive money from at least some number of clients to make up for our current societal norms. When people ask about my fee, I never want the money to stop them from receiving the work, so I always make it clear that they can pay whatever they are comfortable with and meets their budget. I will give out a figure for guidance that is on the low-end of the range of my peers and similar professions, and some can give less, and some want to give more.
I’ve always had a generous nature, maybe even to a fault. I’ve worked with healers at this level and looking back, if I could have afforded give them thousands of dollars for what they did for me, I would have. Quite honestly, I now know and feel that it was priceless.
The primary purpose of the “homework” is to help you integrate the changes we made in the core energetic layer into the mythic layer, the psycho-spiritual layer, and ultimately into the physical expression of your life. Our session is such big and accelerated work, that many interesting things can bubble-up for several days to weeks afterward. Of course, not all experiences will be related to the work, but the following processes will offer a way for you to spend less time and energy dealing with whatever is happening with your mind and body, and just “take it to the mythic” until it passes.
Remember that approaching all of this with a playful attitude is most effective; and that there is no right or wrong way to do it, no rules. What comes to you and your imagination is valid and appropriate and will serve you on the continuation of your healing journey to full empowerment and freedom. Enjoy and be open to variations or completely different ways that you may be inspired to do to accomplish the integration.
Your unique session may not call for all of the homework processes.
We will have discussed this during your session. There is no time limit as to when to start or stop each process, but they are designed to help support you after the profound work that we have done at the deepest level of your soul. They can also be used anytime going forward in your life to continue to be an effective way of working through life issues.
Because humanity is still healing in general, life will continue to present challenges and opportunities to stay in your power and fully process events. As a result, follow-up sessions can be very helpful, and many clients will do so on a regular basis, usually no more than once per month.
The follow-up sessions may include further comprehensive energy work, or simply tracking and coaching.
Because of the empowering nature of true shamanism, I like to defer to your own inner guidance as to whether or not you choose to engage in follow-up sessions. I do encourage checking in after a first session at least once within a month after the session.
The Sand Painting | Mandala | aka The Mythic Toilet
Find a space outdoors or indoors and make a circle out of stones, sticks, leafs, flowers, etc., really anything will do. This is the "toilet bowl" in which you will place all aspects of your old story. Place more objects inside the circle, where each of the objects represents the people, places, events, and internal issues that made up your old story; the old map of your life and what you identified with when we first sat down together. Then as any of the old experiences still bubble-up over the next several days, just recognize it as the old stuff, disengage with it, and instead blow it into another object and add it to the circle.
As you know, in the session we cleared the energies, imprints, etc. of this old map so that they would no longer inform who you are becoming, and we even jumped to the psycho-spiritual/thoughts/beliefs level to speed the integration up so the changes come quickly to your physical/literal life.
As you engage with your mandala by sitting and contemplating, the stone people, plant people, etc., and anything else going on around you, will give you more insights and understanding; they will tell you more of the story that you can shift.
You will get more understanding and insights into thoughts and habits of thought [beliefs] that you may want to change in order to step into your new map, your new vision that we also discussed as the goal of the session. Sit with your mandala and contemplate as long as you want each day for 3 days; you can even ask questions and get answers from it, and shift it around if you like. Also, if anything comes up during those 3 days that would normally bother you, like strong or heavy emotions/feelings or interactions with other people, instead of trying to deal with it, engage, or resolve it, etc. just blow it into another object and give it to your mandala for the mother earth to take care of it for you; these are part of the old story that is still draining and belongs to the earth.
This is a way of holding the space for yourself just as we did during your session, so that your healing can fully integrate without disruption.
At the end of the 3-day period, dismantle the mandala, dispersing all the objects back where they came from except for one piece. That one piece is the death arrow; meaning it is the death of the old map, so that the new map/vision can be born. Blow the completion of this healing session into that death arrow 3 times, just as we started our session, and bury or burn it. This mythically returns all the energies of that old map to the earth where they belong and can be mulched, just as we did energetically during the session.
This also reminds us of our connection to the earth always, and how we should allow the mother earth to take our heavy combusted/processed energies from us through your first chakra, so that we don’t carry them around anymore.
If you have other creative ways to accomplish what the sand painting/mandala accomplishes on the level of the mythic, feel free to substitute. Remember that the language of the mythic is images.
The language of the psycho-spiritual and literal is words, and the language of the core essential is the energy itself.
If we cut the threads that were informing you from your connection to your ancestors or we did an extraction of the energy of an ancestor or someone close to you that had passed, a great way to work that in the mythic is with an ancestor altar.
Create the altar by placing a picture or object representing the person or persons along with a candle and some food or something that would be an offering that would please them. The point is to honor them, and make sure that they are where they belong and no longer following you around.
Some people would mistake this for ancestor worship, but this is not an act of worship, this is a practical way to make sure that you are never again under the influence of these non-physical entities, or by the threads of resentment, anger, or grief related to their physical life or their passing.
As we did a kind of energetic surgery on your luminous energy field and chakras by removing the heavy toxic energies and crystallized imprints, salt baths help to soothe and smooth out and speed up the healing process. Take 3 or so of these during the two weeks following your session.
Dialogues for the Soul Retrieval or Destiny Retrieval
If we did a soul retrieval for you, an additional way to get more insights is to engage in dialogue with the soul part, the gift/treasure, and the power animal. A way to do this is to make 2 columns on a piece of paper and write your name over the left column, and write “soul part” over the right column. Then write a question in the left column, and allow your soul part to write the answer through you under the right column. You may start with “who are you?”, “why did you leave?”, “what changes can I make to keep you with me from now on?”, etc.
Do the same on separate pieces of paper with the gift and power animal. For example, you may ask “what do your represent in me and my life?”, “how can I best express you?”, “how will you help me?”, etc.
If we did a destiny retrieval, you can do the same thing with that energy that represents the you that you are becoming. Ask questions like “who are you?”, “what are the things I can do or changes I can make to become you fully?”, “what thoughts and beliefs would serve me best in achieving this destiny?”, etc.
And if you want to further explore on your own with the Soul Retrieval and Destiny Retrieval journeys, here are two videos that you can listen to and follow along with. Both of these processes are powerful and possible to do on your own any number of times to strengthen your healed soul and dream your ideal world into being:
Destiny Altar and Manifesting Your New Vision
After a Destiny Retrieval, it is great to create an altar or vision board that helps anchor the feeling of your ideal destiny. You can use an image or symbol of yourself, surrounded by helpful aspects of nature such as your power animals, and helpful team members such as great beings. Add images and/or symbols that help you feel what it will be like to be living and experiencing your goals. If you want, you can tend to the altar by lighting candles or incense, and bringing flowers and gifts to it (you). You can also feel and place objects representing how your great destiny will effect others around you and all of humanity.
Remember how the Universe works: “ask and it is given”, and that you are always asking by your dominant thoughts/vibrations whether conscious or unconscious. There are many tools and techniques for being more conscious and deliberate in asking for what you want, in choosing the thoughts that serve best more of the time and getting into the feeling place that most effectively sends the signal and puts you in the receiving mode.
Remember to dig deep for the feeling of the experience of what you want (as opposed to stating or thinking what you don’t want. Remember the Universe doesn’t hear the words “don’t” and “no”, etc., that is just the contrast helping you to be more clear about what you do want). And really you only need to ask once, then spend the rest of the time choosing the thoughts that feel best in any given moment and situation, because when you are feeling good, you are a vibrational match to what you’ve asked for and you are therefore allowing it to manifest. And as you practice choosing the thought that feels better, you’ll have access to even better thoughts, and you may even refine what you are asking for.
Noticing that it hasn’t manifested yet, is another way of asking for not having it and therefore not allowing it to manifest. So be playful and find excuses to feel good. Have fun with this, it’s the joy of the process that we really came here for, so be gentle with yourself as you practice and get more and more supporting evidence.
Start your day finding things to appreciate and then getting into the feeling place of how you want your day to go. Pre-journal the experiences you want, whether in the next hour, day, week, year, and so on. If you’re not sure what you want, ask for clarity, ask to know what you want.
In practicing being in your power in this way, you are doing more for the world that you can imagine and you are a shining example of the well-being available to all those around you and they learn to come into their power as loving and joyful co-creators as well.
Working with Relationships and Shadow
Shadow work can be very challenging, but tremendously powerful and effective very quickly. The basic principle is this: Anytime you are experiencing a person or persons whose behavior bothers you significantly and you cannot seem to figure out how you could possibly have attracted them into your experience, there is an opportunity for you to embrace a part of you that you have never wanted to own, look at, or may not even know about.
It is called shadow, precisely because it is hiding and probably unconscious to you.
By the Universal Law of Resonance you are receiving an exaggerated version of it through others so that you may actually start to shine a light on it and take a look, and then it is no longer shadow and you no longer attract the experience of those exaggerated behaviors from anyone.
The real trick is that when you find that you too have or are capable of exhibiting that same behavior, that it is not about judging yourself and trying to get rid of that behavior, but paradoxically allowing and forgiving yourself for it, and actually embracing it as a part of who you are, albeit a very very small part that hardly ever shows up.
One way to do it is to reflect back on your life and see if there were times when others may have perceived you as exhibiting that behavior; or another way is to think of situations and circumstances where you may be compelled to act that way; and again not only forgive yourself for it, but actually recognize its value at times, how it may actually serve at times.
The difficult part of this comes from not wanting to admit that we aren’t perfect saints (as we have been taught to try and become and of which there is not one legitimate example as such in the history of mankind) and also the fear that if we embrace the behavior it will take over. Nothing could be further from the truth, you will always be the mostly good person that you are and that is at the core of your true nature.
Remember, what you push against gets bigger, what you resist persists, and what you embrace disappears.
It is a great exercise in letting go of self-judgment and hence the judgment of others, which I believe is the single greatest problem facing the human species today and is responsible for a great many of the other problems. Try this and watch how quickly your experiences of those bothersome people disappear. Do it enough and after a while you will find it difficult to be bothered by anything or anybody. It is one of the final steps to full empowerment and freedom.
Fire Ceremony and Opening Sacred Space
A Process for Making Big Choices
When you are faced with a big life-changing choice like changing careers or moving, etc. there is a wonderful exercise that clients have found helpful. Basically create two columns on a piece of paper and title the left column as LOVE and the right column as FEAR. Then think of statements as to why you would or wouldn't make a certain choice. And if the statement is based on fear, for example the statement "If I don't take this job, I might miss out on further opportunities" then you write it under the FEAR column. Whereas the statement "I love the people that work for this company" would go under the LOVE column. The choice that falls mostly on the LOVE column is the choice to make, since making big decisions based on fear tend not to work out in the long run.
Extra Tools Including the Kahuna Break
Shamans always begin healing ceremonies by opening sacred space. In this space we leave behind the affairs of ordinary life, the bustling world of meetings and schedules, and prepare to meet the divine. Sacred space allows us to enter our quiet inner world where healing takes place. Within sacred space our burdens become lighter, and we can be touched by the hand of Spirit. After we finish our healing work, sacred space must be closed by again acknowledging the four directions, Heaven, and Earth.
Sacred space is a healing sphere that is pure, holy and safe. I imagine it as a shimmering cupola above the area where I do my healing work. Everyone within this space is protected. Sacred space creates an environment where our defenses can be lowered, where we can explore our soft, tender underbelly. Sacred space also gives us access to the luminous healer-the medicine men and women who assist us form the Spirit world.
You can create sacred space and summon the healing power of nature anywhere on Earth. You can use it while your own prayer reveals itself to you.
The shaman’s covenant with Spirit is that when she calls, Spirit answers. Powerful medicine people from the Spirit world appear in the form of luminous beings who assist us in our healing work.
You can employ a smudge stick of sage or a little scented water if you like. Shamans throughout the world accompany their prayer by fanning smoldering sage or incense with a feather in the appropriate direction they are addressing, or holding their hand up to the sky and saluting each cardinal point. You will need to determine the points; ideally this is done with a compass, but a close approximation based on your knowledge of the landscape is fine.
Begin by facing South. Smudge or blow the scented water to the South, then hold up your hand, palm facing out. Recite the first verse, calling upon serpent. Face each direction in turn as you repeat the process. Touch the Earth and look to the Heavens when directing your prayers there.

Thank you Mother for sustaining us with your bounty, for supporting our healing work on your belly, and for always taking those energies which are too heavy for us and mulching them for us, so that we donâ€™t have to carry them around any longer, so that we can be truly free to create extraordinary lives filled with joy, abundance, love, and support
Intitaita Father Sun, Mamakia Grandmother Moon, Hatun Chaska Star Nations, Star Brothers and Sisters, thank you for rising everyday showering us with your light, your cycles, your love, that makes life possible for us here, and for doing this unconditionally without judgment, teaching us to treat ourselves in the same way
Hatun Apu Kuna, Great Holy Mountains, Great Lineage, and Teachers of All times, thank you for helping us; and Ilaticha Wirakocha, Wakantanka, Great Spirit, Creator, God, Creator of all-that-is, you who are known by a thousands names and you who are the unnamable One that dwells within us and all around us in all forms
Thank you for bringing us together to sing the song of life one more dayto dance this dance of co-creation, to take creation beyond where it has been before, new levels of joy, abundance, and exhilaration
Thank you for holding us
You close sacred space by thanking serpent, jaguar, hummingbird, and eagle. Release their energies and allow them to return to the four corners of the Earth. To connect with the energy of one of the directions, do not close that direction. Instead call on that archetype to enter you and accompany you on your path. (I do this by turning to the East, for example, and instead of closing that direction I blow the spirit of that archetype into my client’s crown chakra. I imagine the spirit of eagle entering them and informing their lives.) Then thank Mother Earth and Father Sky.
