You know those times when you say something, or someone else does, and it makes the hairs on your arms stand on-end? Or sends shivers down your spine? When this happens, its usually a significant moment, not to be taken for granted. And I've come to realise that its when 'spirit' is showing up.
At a shamanic healing workshop we hosted on the weekend (thanks Catherine!) our group collectively experienced this, as we called-in spirits or energies from the north, south, east and west. As well as tingling all-over, my body was on fire! It wasn't something I was controlling, it was just happening. I could really feel a presence of energies all around me.
Too often in life, we get caught up in doing and thinking, which scatters our energy and attention, and we don't happen to notice these little signs showing us that good-spirit is all around. Supporting us and guiding us. It was a beautiful reminder about what can perceive when we're still and we pay attention to what's going on in the subtle realms beyond our physical bodies. Positive energies or spirits who have left their bodies, do indeed return to guide and support us on our journey.
I believe we are spiritual beings having a human experience. And each time this happens, it strengthens my ability to trust those tingling moments and to trust in life.
What about you?
