The Shaman Way: What is Creator asking you to do right now?

By Shaman Elder Maggie Wahls

What is Creator asking you to do right now with the gifts you have? What are your guides saying? You know what YOU want to do. Now what is Creator asking you to do?

Just recently I came to a crossroads in my life. Creator asked me to build a community of healers, a place where healers could come together, have fellowship, offer teaching and healing to each other. This community would then attract visitors who could see many healers gathered in one place, so the healers would then have people to teach and heal freely. Many healers feel isolated in their own communities, unwanted and unable to practice freely. Here in this community they could offer their gifts to each other and to the public and find the recognition and satisfaction of being able to practice their healing methods in wholeness. This community involves three segments, healing, education and documentation. The healers would be able, by spending some time in this place, a couple weeks, a year, six months, forever, whatever they wished, to have their own healing work documented and archived for all the world to see and research. It gives the healers something to stand on, some legitimacy that is recognized by the current medical establishment. This will help all healers to be more fully established as an efficacious body of healing work in modern day medical society. This is so needed today.

Creator told me last year to hurry up and physically manifest this place that Creator has already created. The problem was finding where this place was to be and building it. It was not something I wanted to do. It was going to be hard work and cost a lot of money which I don't have. But I agreed to do the work because I could see what this place would become, a source of healing and community for all.

Creator gave us the place here in Missouri. 17 acres of virgin forest land in the Mark Twain National Forest. Never lived on. Creator told me to move here right away. It was December of 2005 and I was embroiled in my work as a teacher and healer in Florida. "Okay," I said I would do this, so I packed up and was ready to move when I got an offer. This offer was my lifetime dream. If I had one dream for myself in my golden years it was to live in Hawaii and work in a healing community there, teaching and healing for the rest of my life. No building, no struggles, no hard work, a community already established wanted me to come and be their Shaman in residence. My dream!

So there I was faced with both my dream and this mission from Creator. I could have had it all given to me on a silver plate. But I agreed to do what Creator wanted of me. So I moved to Missouri and have been here since January working the unplowed ground, laboring to get a well dug and electric installed and soon to break ground for the first of many buildings, hopefully to get it built before the winter snows.

I work hard doing two jobs, one as the hand laborer on the land and one as the teacher healer counselor for the whole world at large. Each is a full time job. All the money I get from teaching goes into the healing community. Every dime.

But every person who comes here to Life Healing Community receives a healing! It may be physical or mental or emotional but there is a healing power on this land itself. No person is needed. I had a man come here with breathing problems, heart problems and needing a staff in order to be able to walk this blessed land. After spending an hour on the land he threw down the staff and helped me cut down trees with a chain saw for the electric line to be installed.

Another woman came to visit with severe heart disease. She wrote me yesterday after seeing her heart doctor and she is no longer diagnosed with any kind of heart problems whatsoever. Every single person who has come to this place has received a healing!

This place that Creator has manifested is beyond me. It is holy and sacred and needs to be developed to give this gift to all the world. I am doing the very best I can to put buildings and power and water and lights on it so that people can be comfortable while visiting here. I cannot do this alone. I need volunteers and funds to make this all that Creator has shown me it is to be. But I do all that I can do as it is my mission to bring this gift from Creator to you and to all.

So you see I had a choice, to do what I wanted to do or to do what Creator wanted me to do. It can be hard to pass by our lifelong dreams and pick up a shovel instead. But if we can go where Creator needs us most, we are rewarded in so many ways! We are given the treasures of Creator! And what are the treasures of Creator? What does Creator value? This is what.

Creator will give to you when you put down what you want for yourself and pick up what Creator wants for you. I ask you to think about this. To think about the tools that Creator has already blessed you with and to ask Creator and your guides and angels how best you can be of service to Creator. You might not think the answer is very appealing at first. But the treasures that await you on that adventure are eternal! What do you think Creator is asking you to do?

"I have heard your dream, now what is your mission?"
