We begin this episode by discussing illness and spirituality and the judgement and guilt related to the idea of illness being a manifestation of various emotional issues and lessons. We talk about how some of the attitudes around this are throwbacks from some disempowering aspects of religious influences from our past. We also explore the opportunities for spiritual growth that illness presents. We discuss shamanic teachings – where we get them from – ourselves, chosen teachers or our guides/higher levels of consciousness/spirit. We talk about the dangers of putting shamans or anyone on pedestals instead of trusting ourselves and taking responsibility for what we participate in. We also revisit the notion of ‘good guy/bad guy’ themes and how this can ultimately affect us in harmful ways. We talk about how the medicines present to us the fact that what we’re really up against is ourselves not others and how challenging this medicine path can be and also how liberating it is. We end on the subject of focus and manifestation – choosing what we focus on to improve our life experience.
