Oh, Thank you @Mama Bear
I am so excited too...I call the shaman in the dream the "bird-man." (How accurate that you could see that his raven skull was over his heart. It most certainly was!)
After losing my immediate family members to illness, I lost the will to sing. For the longest time singing just made me cry. It is what my baby sister and I did a lot of, hanging out together, listening to music, and singing. I have loved to sing since I was 4 years old and have just recently been able to listen to music and have tried to sing again. (I can't carry a tune in a bucket but still, I enjoy singing).
Well, let's see...I am dealing with multiple griefs, multiple chronic illnesses, and have been in therapy for many years to address and heal multiple childhood traumas, (which are mostly healed, but are life-long processes for me). I have made good progress and I have been very proactive concerning my health issues. I have been working with Lion as a power animal during my 12 years on a peer-to-peer PTSD forum.
So I am about to re-emerge from a world of hurt, more healed inside than ever, and begin a "new" life at 60 years old. I am wanting to work with other trauma survivors but don't really know how to go about it. It is a definite blessing to be able to help guide others thru the healing process, but I am no therapist. Maybe it is time to start studying mediumship just as you have suggested. I just want to shed this old skin that told me I was a victim and finally step away.
I believe that I am ready to rise up and soar and make the rest of my life the best of my life.
*(Oh yeah remind me sometime to tell you what the Native American "spirit people" showed me in a dream concerning a guy named Lee) Heck I'll just tell ya real quick...
My spirit people told me that if I ever needed them for anything to say.. (then they showed me a big man with the name of Lee and then a shorter man also named Lee) I was like, ok, Big Lee, little lee, ...I don't get it. Then I discovered that certain tribes have the war cry of (Li-li-Li-li-Li-li-Li) so that the first Lee was more pronounced than the second Lee and so on and was repeated in rapid succession.
Anyway, I thot it was cool how they got that across to me.
Lots to think about, Bless you and Thank you again!!!
