The Four Gateways of Shamanism

Theree are four major gateways (or pathways) in shamanism that illuminate one’s life-walk whether or not shamanism is your primary path in this lifetime. These are the energetic pathways of your sacred dream and what your spirit self (or dreamer) and Spirit are guiding you to do. Earth based cultures speak of it as your “vision”. Sometimes your vision is shown to you early in life and sometimes you miss the vision signposts or you see it but have no idea of what to do with it.

Some questions you may ask are, “What is my medicine walk?” “What journey is my spirit self asking me to walk?” “How is it different than what I am doing today?” “How can I wake up that place of sacred guidance within me and keep the communication pathways between myself and Spirit open?” “What can my own personal medicine wheel tell me about how to walk out my vision?”

You begin to truly know the depth of your sacred dream when you are unsure whether you are dreaming the dream or the dream is dreaming you!

  2. So true what you say about facebook tolltay depleting your energy haha! That is another one of those things that is all about balance.

This is also true in life, I think you need to constantly re-adjust your spokes. I also love that analogy.. by the way to truing a wheel by tightening opposite spokes.Looking forward to reading more
