This path is not easy. I have gone through an unbelievable amount of work, growth, and change since that day I came out of my “Shaman Sickness.” There have been physical issues, mental issues, energetic issues, and I think worst of all, interpersonal issues. I have had to dissect many aspects of myself and be very honest about who I am, which is not always easy.
But I knew my path. And it doesn’t actually matter what it takes to get there, I know that “there” is where I will be, so I press on. Recently, I have found that the efforts I spend to work with, and assist people, have been the most empowering efforts I could be doing. I feel as if I am more whole for offering cleansings and guidance.
I am told that I am starting to fulfill my role. I am a Torchbearer. For those who have questions, and have lost their way, I can guide them through the chaos and hardships to the door that leads them to their path. And each time this effort becomes a reality, I feel like all is right with the world. I feel like I am doing right, and my calling is fulfilling me.
Sometimes it is important to see that the right path is rarely the easy path, but taking on that challenge has some remarkably clear, and tangible benefits.
I am helping people, and I feel good.
