I am anxious to continue taking journeys to both the upper and lower worlds. I had to take a few weeks off from my studies, but it feels so good to be back at it. It makes me wonder if my time away has been somewhat of a lesson to. I learned that I am a much happier and healthier person when I make time for my Shamanic studies. I believe that what I have been taught so far has helped to mold me into a somewhat grounded person. I believe practicing shamanism keeps me balanced and much more aware of what is important in life. I see this lesson as a confirmation that I am, indeed on the right path.
