"Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt
Shamanism and PTSD Recovery
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is the aftermath of a healthy, normal response to threatening, unpredictable, out of control situations. Within the complex inner world of someone suffering from PTSD lies multiple events of soul loss along with other psychoemotional and psychospiritual dynamics. Shamanism, with its expertise in soul retrieval and unraveling the wounds of the soul, is a critical part of the recovery process for PTSD. PTSD is debilitating, leaving people with nightmares and pervasive fear, deep scars and emotional numbness, and often uncontrollable flashbacks to the event. It can be caused by any overwhelming, violent event, whether large scale like war or personal scale like rape. PTSD can affect not only those who experience the traumatic event, but those who witness it, who offer care, who pick up the pieces after, and those who live with a loved one who is experiencing PTSD. We can all look around us and see that we have largely failed to bring healing to those with PTSD in spite of our medical system's best efforts. This week, shaman and host, Christina Pratt explores what PTSD is from a shamanic perspective and what we need to do as care providers and community to heal it. From this unique perspective we can bring not only healing to those with PTSD, but heart, meaning, and hope to this ever growing problem in America.

New WINGS Update from Karen Bishop
The Three Options
Missed the WINGS post for April 30? You can view it here.
We are again at a crossroads at our soul levels, and although I just posted a WINGS message on April 30th, after visitation from my star friends, I feel a need to share a bit more about our current situation on the planet. Each and every one of us is strong and wise at our core, and personally, I have always felt that we have our own barometers, strong and clear, and using that individual muscle is always the best way to go. In this way, all the postings I place on the web site have always been meant to validate what we are all experiencing, and although individuals, we are all in this together in many ways.
For the past few months, I have been given the option of staying here on the planet or making my final departure. We may wonder how many band-aids we can put on a massive planetary wound before it is time to throw in the towel, or even perhaps how many disappointments a soul can endure before it begins to wither and die. And if love is the air we breathe in this new reality, we may breathe it out with ease, but we still need to breathe it in too in order to survive. What do we do when there is no air left to breathe? How do we continue to sustain ourselves and fill our lungs with the precious fuel that we need in these new and higher realms when love, caring, and the heart energy seems a very rare commodity?
