There is Power...and there is Personal Power.

Have you noticed that in stories and films, the one with Power is the usually the villain?

All this came about in a discussion when someone saw Powerful people as Tyrants. So what would it be like if there were Powerful People who were not Tyrants?

If we look deep into the underpinnings of Tyranny, I would imagine that basis comes from Fear centered around a desire for Significance. Again think many characters of a villainous nature fits into this description?

So, what would happen if you were to tell a story--a new story--that had a Hero with Power (not super powers, but say the Power of a King). What obstacle would your Hero face?

If our King (and he's a nice fellow!) faced another human as an obstacle, who would you have that person be? Perhaps a underling...maybe Himself?

It could be Nature...or, it could be a god or goddess...

Does there need to be a play for power to make the story true?

From here, a new question emerges: Can a Person of Power be a Good Person?

For some of you, the answer is an immediate, "Sure!" for others, it may be a very empowered, "Never!"

If you are in the "Never!" group, what does this say about you and your personal Power? Are you frightened of owning your Power? Will doing so make you...a Tyrant? (A very sad, embedded belief indeed!)

Remember, our mission in Shamanism--and something we talk about in our workshops--is to create and establish Balance. Therefore, there is no Tyranny. There is no Power Loss.

There simply is...Power.

Welcome as we dive into Power this month!

Quote of the Month

In you, as in all men, are natural powers. You have a will. Learn to use it. Make it work for you. Sharpen your senses as you sharpen your knife . . . We can give you nothing. You already possess everything necessary to become great.

Power Animals of Power
There is a spectrum of Power, in both  Types or Power and degrees of Power.

If low, you now have a resource to obtain it. If yours is high, ask yourself; 'Am I using this energy

For our Practitioners, ask your Power Animals about their Power, their Medicine.

Then, inquire about your own Power and Medicine. What do you bring to yourself?

For our Students...

Dreamers: Find an Empowering Dream
  • How does Power play out in your Life?
  • In what way are you powerful? In what way are you not?
  • Do you need to cultivate Power or do you need to know how to deal with Power of another?
Remember, you can cultivate a dream...and re-enter one too. Discover more about your Power (or Power Loss) in the Power of your Dream.

For our Phoenix Risers:
  • Does Power bring out a Shadow character? What is the nature of this character? Is it victimized or a tyrant?

How does your Inner Child(ren) react when exposed to Power? Is your IC empowered? If not, how can you aid it so it is empowered? If it already is empowered, how is it represented? Is it with a healthy representation?

For our Ancestral Students:
  • How  Powerful were your Ancestors? What gave them Power? Who or what took it away? Is there a family pattern tucked away in Power within your family line?
