Most of us were told as children to think before we speak, but did you also learn to become aware of what you think?

Shamans believe we have the power to affect our bodies, minds, and souls –– and the plants, animals, and beings around us –– with our mere thoughts and words. We are all part of a great Web of Life.

And doing the inner work to become more aware of what we’re bringing to the world –– and how we may be affecting our lives and those of others –– is at the core of walking the shamanic path.

Shamanism offers us an approach to life that inspires authenticity, accountability, and reverence for all living things. It can also help us open to more love and joy and a greater sense of belonging.

Shamans learn from a very early age how to cultivate these human qualities… and we can learn to walk in their footsteps by adopting practices to help us clear our minds of negative thoughts and beliefs, and by opening our hearts to new beliefs and dreams that can better serve us and others.

The shamanic perception invites us to look at the world through sacred eyes and to humbly realize that we are but a part of this world and, yet, we can always be making a difference...

We can offer the Earth, cosmos, and other hearts around us thoughts and words that inspire love, light, strength, and beauty.

In this 8-minute video, renowned shamanism teacher Sandra Ingerman provides you with simple practices that can help you heighten your awareness of the thought loops you find yourself in throughout your day.

She also guides you in bringing your focus to thoughts and words that can help you and the world around you thrive.  

The power and destiny we were born with, Sandra teaches, is for us to dream a beautiful dream for all of life...
