"Planting the Seeds of Your Soul's Purpose" on March 13 "Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt
Submitted by: Renaissance Resources
(OPENPRESS) March 11, 2012 -- Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network (www.co-creatornetwork.com) on Tuesday, March 13, at 11 a.m. Pacific time/2 p.m. Eastern time, on her show "Why Shamanism Now?: A Practical Path to Authenticity," shaman and founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing Christina Pratt tells listeners that our soul's purpose lives in our body, deep within the root of our being where we carry our piece of the original spark of life. Like bulbs in the ground and buds on the trees, that spark of one's soul's purpose wants to rise up and out of us, blossoming into an expression of our unique gifts given to the world. According to Pratt, the irritation and restless energy that we feel in the springtime is more than cabin fever and a lust for newness. It is the energy of the Inner Dreamer waking to dream true and instead finding the need to detoxify the winter's crop of old energies, ideas, and beliefs.
In this episode of "Why Shamanism Now?" titled "Planting the Seeds of Your Soul's Purpose", Pratt shares a shamanic practice for planting the seeds of our soul's purpose as an earth ritual for spring. For our seeds to take root and blossom, we must prepare the soil. This requires bringing in the nutrients of our essence energies and aligning with the things we know we cannot live without. It also involves fertilizing the soil with the release of aspects of our selves that no longer serve us or have been outmoded by our growth. And most important of all, we must plant the right seeds, the seeds that resonate with our authentic true nature.
