Patheos-Pagan: The blossoming of the silver flower: shamanic rituals of creation
JANUARY 21, 2023 BY BEN H. GAGNON
Reenacting the moment of creation inside the body and mind has long been a cross-cultural shamanic practice.
The majority of creation myths begin with a source of heat evaporating dormant waters into the first clouds and storms – the birth of weather and the perpetual water cycle (see previous column for more on this).

“The man who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.”
— William Faulkner
Longing for a miracle that will transform your life? Miracles happen, and if we don’t want that magic to disappear on us, we need to learn from each epiphany — to integrate it, apply it, and build on it so we can permanently shift to a new level of being.
The real key to fulfillment lies in ONGOING transformation: building our awareness of daily opportunities to change our perceptions and raise our consciousness. Life is about dissolving the old and creating anew. The more we open to accepting and learning from every life experience, the more our lives transform.
“Enlightenment must come little by little — otherwise it would overwhelm.”
— Idries Shah
A Note from the Universe
A little workshop on amassing wealth and abundance:
Thought is the greatest investment vehicle of all time—no matter what’s happening within any economy. Thoughts have their own economy, and now is a super-great time to get in on the ground floor. I can take most any old invisible thought of yours and turn it into a mine of gold, a mountain of cash, or a well of prosperity.
The best is yet to come. Invest in yourself, think wisely, follow your hunches, and live the life of your dreams.

If any problems arise today, they will probably come out of being careless about something simple and normally no trouble at all. Carelessness is the chief threat to having things go smoothly. Even if only small things are lost, broken, or need to be redone, it can make tomorrow even more of a mess than today might be. Pay attention to details, take your time and do your best.
