“The Power of Healing Intentions”
My lip quivered, my right leg fussed and twitched, my eyes squeezed shut as I felt the anger and pain rise up from deep within. I was feeling out a healing intention with the support of my shamanic teacher, Debra Morrill and the group of students that signed up for the practicum, an extension of the 2 ½ year medicine wheel. I have been doing this deep inner work of the soul continuously for over 7 years. I know that when my body reacts physically and I’m feeling emotionally vulnerable, that I’ve gotten to the core of what’s coming up for healing. Like a pouty 5-year old, I shared with the group, “I’m Karen and I Forgive.”
It didn’t feel good to say this at first, as there was trauma surfacing with it. In fact, it was hard. I repeated, “I’m Karen and I Forgive” several times with the group holding space for me, just as I held space for them earlier. Creating this healing intention wasn’t easy, but after experiencing the positive effects from many classes and medicine wheels with Debra, I trust the process. I know that as soon as the healing intention is set, the universe meets me and brings forth the experiences, people and awareness to facilitate healing. All I need to do is be show up for myself and keep my heart open. In fact, the healing from my first medicine wheel was so profound, I exclaimed to Debra, “I don’t ever want to stop!” And I haven’t.
Using healing intentions as a guide, a mantra, a goal, a prayer, our energy and perspectives shift and healing happens. I reflect on the intentions I’ve set over the years, “I Align with My Soul”, “I Hold Space Beautifully”, “I Matter”, “I Embrace My Gifts”. I marvel at the transformation I experienced through them.
Although setting healing intentions and doing the deep inner work of the soul is not easy, it’s life changing, for the better. The empathic, fear driven, co-dependent person I was before would be totally impressed and flabbergasted with the person I am today; the owner of Crow Moon Healing Bed and Breakfast, a place for people to come, rest, have fun, learn, heal and connect with Spirit and animal friends. I can honestly say, “I love my life!”

"Connecting with Divine Spirit through Shamanism"
A two-day basic shamanism workshop led by Debra Morrill
August 17 - 18, 2019
Saturday, August 17 from 9am-9pm
Sunday, August 18 from 9am-4pm
From the beginning of time, indigenous cultures on every continent shared a shamanic spiritual view. Our forebears lived close to the earth, deeply in tune with her cycles and seasons, the elements and nature. In this connection, they found their spirituality. They believed that every living being had a spirit- not just people, but also animals, trees, stones, and plants. They commonly traveled into the spirit realm to communicate and interact with power animals, spirit guides and nature spirits. Through exploring the basics of shamanism, we can rekindle our connection to the divine and develop our ability to communicate directly with Spirit to receive guidance on our spiritual path.
