Stories from Spirit by Indie author Sheila Callaham
Stories from Spirit will help you learn a different route to meditation, using an ancient indigenous spiritual practice called journeying, or Shamanic journeying, which is a form of guided or self-guided meditation using drumming as a background track and a way to switch off the present mind.
I was fortunate to connect with Sheila Callaham on Twitter recently after she read my blog post about Spiritual Art , where I was guided to draw images during the Shamanic journeying process.
Sheila is an independent author, also on her own spiritual journey and has written Stories from Spirit in order to relate her story and enable others to begin or continue with Shamanic journeying.
I’ve enjoyed this ebook greatly and believe Stories from Spirit is a great resource for the new Shamanic Guided Journeyer, as well as those more experienced on the journey.
Stories from Spirit – what you may learn from, and experience in, this ebook
Sheila’s ebook describes her experiences of journeying in detail, and her connecting with a powerful Shamanic Practitioner, MaryPhyllis Horn, who taught Sheila how to journey and also wrote the introduction the ebook.
As MaryPhyllis says, “I found Sheila’s beautifully descriptive journeys and thought-provoking questions to be ‘eye-openers’ into new territories of thought”.
Stories from Spirit contains Sheila’s story and fifteen guided journeys in part I. In part II, we get to learn how to experience our own journey by meeting your personal Power Animal (excellent for new journeyers), hear suggestions and stories from other journeys and experience eighteen powerful spiritual exercises.
If you are new to Shamanic journeying or self-guided journeying, then Stories from Spirit will set you on the right road and you may become interested enough to join a Shamanic circle or find a teacher in your area.
As a more experienced self-guided journeyer and meditation practitioner, I notice that I am immediately transported by reading the journeys, even though I am not journeying at the time! Some of the locations seem familiar (have I been there before?) and others seem new to me, as well as the fact that I am learning new concepts and digesting spiritual food for thought.
For instance, the very first journey in Stories from Spirit “The Whitest Light” relays an experience of journeying to the upper world. Sheila uses the wind to transport herself to desired locations…I’ve met the wind in journeys but had never thought to work with it in the way that Sheila does – until now…
Reading the second journey, “Pushing through Resistance“, the phrase “Yet even the smallest grain of sand holds infinite energy” really resonated for me. In my energy practice, the theme of the third phase of the EMF Balancing Technique® is “It’s not the journey that wears you out, but the grain of sand in your shoe“. In order to clear resistance, perhaps sometimes it’s only those ‘grains of sand’ that we need to let go!
