Hi everyone!  I hope you're well and life's going well!  :-).  I have been researching alternative healing for myself.  Partly around my blindness, and partly around all the craziness that comes with raising awareness of the Social Model in my life experience.  So I found this really cool ancient spiritual way of life called Shamanism.  Now like most things out there, Shamanism has it's dark side.  But if like me you verify the facts and are a good egg at heart, you opt for the poz side of it = indiginous shamanic healing!  If any of you are intrigued, feel free to do your own enlightening research on indiginous shamanism, if you want.  But regarding me, i'm sold on eventually going ahead with it in my current lifetime.  My first task is educating my family and getting them aboard.  But if i'm not able to, if they're too frightened to support me in my major lifestyle change LOL, i'll just have to be as indipendent as I can.  Anyway, i'm currently wrapping up with my mental health therapist, and we're using our final sessions to help me transition into my new modality.  But my point is, indiginous shamanic healing feels like my cup of tea.  I don't have any false illusions about what we (that is, my spirit guides, my healer and his/her higher helpers) can help me achieve.  So I don't expect us to miraculously cure my blindness.  I'll keep dreaming LOL.  But I am looking forward to exploring what's coming up on our physical earth plane regarding advancements in technology or medical treatment for us blindies.  Oh and realigning to my life purpose, and waking ignorant people up more.  Naturally!  So bottom line is: i'm excited to fulfil my realistic agenda overtime.  Woohoo!!!  In myself, i just feel completely spellbound by the authentic aspect of Shamanism.  I really do!  Whenever I research new stuff about it for personal knowledge, I just think, "wow...  That's amazing.  I didn't know that consciously.  Cool!".  I look forward to updating you all overtime throughout the remainder of my lifetime, of how i'm getting on.  :-).

    Many thanks for those of you who have had a chance to read and respond, much appreciated.  :-).  Thank you.  I shal  indeed!  Indiginous Shamanic Healing isn't for everyone, but from the research i've been able to find, I intuit that I shan't regret A the experience (from a client's perspective) and B, coughing up the dosh.  I am most reassured to learn that authentic Shamans care more about the service they provide than financial gain.  They only accept the fees that clients can afford, according to my research.  Phew...  :-).  I always feel nothing here on Earth, beats a teacher's heart.  Not even money...  :-).  Anyway, stay tuned.  I can't wait to embark on my spiritual journey of self-actualisation in coming decades!  So excited! :-).  Particularly as spirituality is more inclusive and accessible for us blindies.  That's what i'm most looking forward to during my healing journey.  :-).  That and being able to customise my cane on the higher planes, with gems and glitter.  :-).  Speak soon everyone.  Look after yourselves.  Big hug.  Love MissWillow1. :-)

    Hey everyone :-), hope you're having a great weekend break (even if like me some of you don't celebrate Easter, depending on your faith, I hope you're still enjoying the long weekend off.), who doesn't like chillaxing eh.  LOL :-).  Don't OD on the chocs LOL.  Anyway, went for a walk to a local Resovoir with my family today, which was nice.  Obviously I can't enjoy beauty spots like they can, however I did enjoy the fresh air, and the general bonding experience, oh and listening to the birds and the gese.  :-).  So yeah, it was nice!  So, regarding my original post on alternative healing, since my update in Jan, I decided to crack on with finding a healer first, connecting with him/her through informal befriending (so to speak) and then drop my bombshell on my family later this year, then give em six months max to come to terms with either waking up and joining me on my transformative journey, or me and my spirit guides and personal council having to drag them along laboriously (yuck).  Either way, I thought to myself, i'd do all I can to start as I intend to go on!  Therefore, fast forwards to the present, I have successfully befriended a distance healing Shaman, (I won't give out his details for confidentiality.  He's the real deal, so I wouldn't want time wasters coming to him from here.  No offence anyone, but I treat people how I want to be treated, through care and compassion and protection.).  Anyway the doc is lovely, really warm and caring, a typical doctor really, (overstretched and overworked) but with all the people skills you'd expect from an authentic healer.  So we've connected, I think my higher team approve (hope so anyway).  I can afford the Shaman's fees as well, so we can proceed working with him, as soon as i'm ready!  I've sent the healer my  agenda, and he's pleased i'm so organised.  So now, my only tasks left to do before I give us all the nodd to proceed, are: 1, educate my family as compassionately and patiently as I can, then pray to God they just get on with supporting me unconditionally and wholeheartedly.  2.  Getting over my human hang ups/demons regarding trusting a new doctor full stop.  As you all may know (those of you who've read my first post, the one where I introduced myself), I have ROP, so that basically means, the tradditional docs messed up when I was a baby, my parents sued them and won, but now i'm living with the consequences of the doctors negligence.  So yep, it's gonna take me a while to restore my faith in medics.  I want to, for the sake of my self-development, and to please God, especially that.  So as much as I feel like running away from my Shaman LOL, i'm not going to.  I'm going to trust my intuition.  Also if there is any suspicious activity during sessions, my spirit guides will put a stop to it instantly, so just know that they'll be holding my hand the entire time, helps me stay sane presently as well LOL :-).   So I am going tobegin work with my healer, from next February, half term, and then working once a month with him primarily.  That's the present arrangement anyway, but obviously in actuality, it depends on what the higher gangs suggest.  I'm going to let the higher team and my healer do the chairing, i'll just be a good little student LOL.   Finally, regarding the above (the part where I wouldn't divulge my healer's work website at least), perhaps i'm being a bit harsh, especially on those of you who are actually interested in my upcoming journey, and may want to approach him yourselves for healing.   So for those of you who give a toss LOL, my healer's name is Kostas C, and he runs: [Removed by moderator - advertising link].

    Hi, oops, my bad for divulging my healer's website.  Thank you so much for removing the link moderators.  I'm so embarrassed.  Anyway, I will send you all general updates on my progression with my upgraded lifestyle, following my active sessions with my Shaman and other teachers.    Finally, to finnish off, went for a walk with my family on Sunday to a local beauty spot.  It was nice, the weather stayed pleasantly cool and the Sun made an appearance.  My favourite part of the walk was passing the Geese, and listening to people throwing food in for them.  LOL.  That's all for now all, speak soon!  :-).  Big hug, love, Misswillow1.
