It’s been a while since my last post. This year has been incredibly busy for me. I’ve been working 7 days a week for many months. My passion for teaching and sharing the wisdom and medicine of the Spirit Warrior Way has grown since then. Although, I have a full day of work today, I wanted to make a few posts of my thoughts, feelings, and messages that have come to me recently, that hopefully will help someone out there who needs to hear it. Know that the Warrior Way is not easy but there is always help.
In February of this year, I was faced with a massive challenge that I'm still resolving. I cannot write about it publicly at this time. In April of this year my brother committed suicide. I am still processing that and had decided to write about it only when I felt like it was the right time to do so. That time is approaching.
About a year ago, a friend of mine who loves fae, did a fae card reading for me, and one of the cards of my future was of a fae climbing a mountain. Of course, Sacred Mountains in mythology and spiritual philosophies have always represented places of meeting with God. Mountains are places where people go to get away from the tumult of the world, people go there to be hermits, to introspect. Mountains are cold and purifying, they allow for greater vision, perspective, clarity.
And so the reading has come true, I'm climbing a very very very tough mountain. It's a spiritual mountain of life challenges. In a way it's a literal mountain. Because the challenges are physical, mental, spiritual, and multi dimensional. One of the challenges is writing my book. There is enormous amount of material that I want to share, and I have to write a lot more, organize it all, edit it, and then publish it, etc. It's a very positive challenge I'm facing. Its a labor of love, and my service to the world. But it is also therapy in a way. Writing is sanity producing.
I'm also continuing my kick boxing, martial arts, fitness training. This is also a very positive challenge and in the full sense of the word martial arts training is therapy. It's a huge challenge to truly master a martial art. It requires enormous amount of time of dedicated practice, resources, commitment.
And the rest of the life challenges I'm dealing with at this time, I think are even greater, and consume all of my time. The higher I climb, the more the people who once started with me, fall away and quit, because the challenges get exponentially harder the more aware you are, and most people can't deal with so much reality. Not me. I plan to win. At any (ethical) cost. Many people expect too many things for free, they want to win but not pay anything for their victory. Socialism is bs. It's a con for the naive. Nothing is free. Everything has a price. And you have to work hard and smart for everything in your life.
The Warrior Way is magical and medicinal only if you are awake. If you are not awake, it is just struggle and suffering.
From the Art of War: Victory is reserved for those who are willing to pay its price.
If you are struggling to overcome challenges ahead of you, if you feel overburdened by life's expectations placed on you, if you feel blocked or held back, or unable to overcome the dark forces in your life, feel free to reach out. If you have considered suicide, please don't do it. Know that there is always a way, and there is always help. Even if it doesn't seem that way, when you are going through a dark night of the soul. Every single person in this world is needed and important. A lot of people who have considered suicide, feel that they cannot contribute to this world because no seems to need their gifts and talents. They cannot unburdain their soul. That the world couldn't care less. I think a part of the problem is that social media has so many insane negative people on it, who hijack and drown out any real conversation, and ability for people to connect, that it makes it very difficult for people who are loving, kind and sensitive to share their gifts on social media platforms. Your special gifts that only you can bring to this world need proper care, loving attention, and guidance. They need the right venue of expression. And there is a need for the strengthening of your inner Warrior, who can brush all that negativity aside and focus on your spiritual goals: your own journey on the sacred mountain.
I've been on this road for a long time, I've survived multiple dark nights of the soul, as all Shamans do, and have overcome many of life's challenges and have helped 100s of other people to do the same. I'm available for private Spiritual Counseling, Coaching, and Energy Healing sessions, by phone, zoom voice or video, or in person. If you need help, reach out to someone. Whether it's me or someone else. Anyone you feel drawn to in your heart, who is genuinely there to help.
