on Tuesday, December 25, 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 talks about the Visionary. According to Pratt, the Visionary asks us, “What does it take to envision a truly new future? How do you open to possibilities that have not yet existed for you?” The Visionary cautions us that our personal past, family of origin past, and our ancestors’ unresolved issues can only hinder us. We must take what we have learned from the past and courageously leave the rest behind as we step into the New World. The Visionary counsels us to speak the truth, listen closely to the truth of others, human and more-than-human, and never let go of the thread that is the energy of our soul’s purpose that goes among changes without changing itself.
In this episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “Wisdom of the Visionary in Changing Times”, Pratt shares the Visionary’s wisdom and encouragement to notice the abuse of the Visionary power in visions without the means to make them real. We must remember the Visionary doesn’t manifest anything. It is the warriorship of holding that vision daily that makes things manifest. Pratt explains that it is the warriorship of tending what you believe in the face of self-doubt and fear of change that makes things manifest. Pratt reminds listeners to always remember that what they believe gains power, so we should tend to our beliefs well.
