The Shaman Way: Discovering Wholeness with Balance and Awareness

By Shaman Elder Maggie Wahls

Scientists who study the brain tell us that we only use 5% of our actual brain in our daily lives. Ever wonder what the other 95% is for? Shamans know that what we see in this physical world is only 5% of everything that is here. What of the 95% that is not manifested on the physical plane? Is it possible that the other 95% of our brain is for living in the other 95% of everything that is here? The Shaman says, Yes!

Medicine wheel About the Medicine Wheel and Balance
The medicine wheel is an ancient and sacred form of prayer among Native Americans. But the circle is a universal symbol that stretches right through all of time to the first created thing. The circle represents the cosmos, both the macrocosm and the microcosm of our own lives. The circle represents the world, the big universe and the tiny atom. And we stand as a point in the center of this circle; as unique points of light created out of the unformed whole.

The circle is traditionally divided into four parts, north, south, east and west; or another way to see these directions is as our physical self, our mental self, our emotional self and our spiritual self. The four directions make up the cosmos in ancient teachings. The four parts of man make up the totality of man. Now, if you picture yourself within a circle and each direction represents a part of yourself, in which part are you standing right now? Are you mostly in the emotional quarter of the pie? Or are you mostly in the mental quarter of the circle? Or the physical or spiritual quarters? That is where the dot that is you is in this circle. The object is to get that dot in the very middle of the circle. How do we do that? By balancing our emotional, mental, spiritual and physical selves, each in themselves and then together as one balanced unit called "you" sitting in the center of that circle.

When you can find that balance even for just a few moments and it is your intent, you will be shot up and out of the circle like a rocket into space and suddenly you will be beyond the physical universe and looking at, aware of, a much larger cosmos. It is like your mind expands into infinity and you are observing earth from far out in outer space. You are floating out there over and above everything you thought was the extent of reality and now amazed to find that there is all this that is real too! It is an awesome eye opening experience and all you need to do is find that point in the center of your circle to experience this! It is not difficult.

We All Have Spirit Guides & Helpers
Now when you first get to see this greater reality and begin to perceive this other 95% with the other 95% of your mind, the first thing you want to do as a human being is to understand it, to categorize it, to measure it and label it - since it is all new territory for most people. This may seem daunting, but we have help! We have guides and teachers in this larger reality. They live in this place and understand it perfectly. They can teach us about it and how to use it to bring health and joy and freedom and abundance into our lives. We all have guides. But not many of us connect with these helpers because we are so unbalanced in that circle.

When you have balance and awareness (this is covered in the first two lessons of my Shamanism course), then you open the doors to this whole other 95% of what is here; what is put here for you to experience in your lifetime. Remember that song "Is that all there is?" Well here it all is! From the first time you are propelled like a rocket into this outer space, you begin to use the other 95% of your brain. This is why you have it. This is what is meant by a Shaman walking with one foot in this world and one foot in the next. And you have helpers and guides who choose to help you learn how to operate in and enjoy the benefits of this greater reality.

What are these helpers and guides?
They are emissaries of Creator. Creator didn't just create you. He created an entire posse of helpers for you! Creator didn't send you here all alone! That would be cruel! Creator sent you here with helpers who can see the outer space of reality, who can see energies of all kinds whizzing through your four-body system in the physical earth. They can see when negative energy is coming your way and tell you to duck or advise you to throw open your arms wide to receive positive energy coming your way. How great is it to know that we have these brilliant and loving helpers. They do love us and they do want to do anything they can to help us fulfill the mission we came here to do.

We do not have to make all our choices based our own limited knowledge or based on just some of the facts we might have at hand. Ever wonder why people make so many poor judgments? Because we usually can't see the energies coming in and out and through all things created the way our guides can. We can however ask for their advice and receive it and I tell you my guides have never once led me wrong. I have had my life saved more than once by these guides. I found my way out of a desert because I listened to my guide. I was saved from a car wreck because I listened to my guide.
  • Have you ever felt the presence of some being in a situation where you were in danger?
  • Have you ever heard a little voice in your head giving you great advice?
  • Have you ever felt the compulsion to do something very specific at a specific time that helped you or someone you love very much?
These are the guides!

When we are not balanced and too much in the physical or mental or emotional bodies, we cannot be aware and centered. We cannot access this cosmic orbit in "outer space" where connecting with our guides is so very easy. So balance, leading to awareness leads to connection with guidance. And this is accomplished through this 95% of unmanifested creation! Welcome to the brave new world of the ancient Shaman.

It is here that abundance begins; it is here that healing is first accomplished. It is here that dreams come true long before they slow down in frequency and vibration enough to be seen in the physical world. Why would anyone not want to access this 95% of reality? All it takes is balance and awareness.

This is what I teach. This is what the Shaman knows.
