Here is a picture of me in my old shaman's shirt. I am holding cleaning sage.
Do you think a shaman is qualified to look into another person's depth without having quite a bit themselves? What gives us this depth?
On another forum I was chastised for "stooping so low, unbecoming of a Lightworker". They had no real idea of what a Lightworker does, or even how they became a Lightworker.
But a Lightworker must be willing to go into the Pits Of Hell, and must make the journey back. That ain't no "E"-ticket ride at Disney-world: it's real-life experience.
So your personal traumas are very valuable. It is very much worth the effort to release the negative energies that imprison them; those negative energies prevent them from becoming the power to heal others
. I'm not sure I can express this to you with any deeper love and care.
