Patheos-Pagan: 6 Reasons To Stop Using the Word “Shaman”
MARCH 11, 2019 BY JULIA PENELOPE
One of my biggest pet peeves is when people use the word shaman out of context. I see it as a huge problem within the pagan, witchcraft, and New Age communities, as well as, within academia for many reasons.* Here is a list of six general problems that I have with how it’s used and why.

“Relative to the level of awareness that is possible for us, our ordinary state of consciousness is as far from a direct experience of reality as sleep is from waking consciousness.”
— Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson
“The thought ‘I exist’ is not the same thing as the awareness of one’s own existence. … Thought is not the same thing as consciousness.”

A Note from the Universe
Help me with the lingo here. Are people just kidding when they refer to the “holy land,” “holy words,” and “holy people,” as if they were somewhere else?
Or do they understand that there’s no land holier than that beneath your own feet? That no words are mightier than those you choose? And that no one, ever, has been more divine and revered and deserving of their heart’s desires than you now are?

“We may think of the Divine as a fire whose outgoing warmth pervades the Universe.”
Many people say God IS love. And love certainly pervades the Universe. Love is something we all understand, something we can all relate to. Every mother knows what it means to love a child. Every person is capable of giving and receiving love. In A Course in Miracles, fear is defined as the absence of love. Much like darkness is the absence of light. Let’s light that fire, and light up the world with our outpouring of love!

Daily Tarot: Temperance
Patience is your secret weapon to face down all obstacles today. Take your good old time to make sure you understand what needs to be done, for whom, why, and how. This methodical approach may not be your natural or favorite one, and it might annoy someone who has a different opinion of how urgent the issue is. Nonetheless, patience will get you through the day with fewer, if any, mishaps.
