Shapeshifter { a spiritual journey }

So here I am on my couch , with my pillow and laptop writing my very first blog . I sit here wondering if anybody will read this or give a shit about anything I have to say,  i shouldn't care, but I do. On the verge of releasing my latest song Shapeshifter I can't help but examine the depths of my subconscious analysing my art, inside out, upside down, i'm downright nervous to be presenting this part of myself to the world, it's a window into my spiritual beliefs, it's such a vulnerable space for me to make public, but yet such a place of empowerment in my everyday life.

I guess to fully explain my inspiration behind Shapeshifter I have to take you back to the beginning, a little girl growing up in Cairns , a beach baby , a bush baby. A little girl who chased the fairies around the garden and would have long conversations with the tree spirits , a little girl who saw golden glowing orbs above her head at night while she tried to go to sleep.......when I look back now I realise I wasn't crazy but I was fully connected.

Of course I grew up with everybody telling me what a great imagination I had, I learnt in early primary school after been teased by my best friend and others that I needed to squash that part of myself deep deep down, where nobody would ever see , I tried to sever that unexplainable connection to the unseen . I  became an expert at hiding my true self , from others but more importantly from myself.

And as i'm sure most people would guess my teenage years and early adult life was fraught with wild behaviour , drugs and insecurities I'm sure in part at least because I was hiding from such an important facet of myself , I drowned my spirit and I stayed in that place for a long time.

Then like magic, the switch came on and the floodgates opened. I started to awaken again and I got curious, very curious. I read many esoteric books , searched the internet for clarity on what I've experienced , looking for others that had experienced this connection and along the way I found modern paganism, I resonated with this spiritual practice , the reverence for nature....I came to believe I could stand in my power and effect change around me .I learnt about witchcraft, about getting in the mud grass roots magic and I loved it, I started to feel a peace and understanding for the first time since I was a little girl,  I had found a spiritual life.

 I was fascinated by different cultures spiritual beliefs, I gathered an eclectic practice and found inspiration in many places, along the way I experimented with some shamanic practices . Then one day I embarked on a journey to the underworld, by putting myself into a trance I dived down to meet my animal guides. Shapeshifting between animals in a vivid dreamscape I discovered the warrior within , I left with the knowledge that as woman we take on in essence the energies of different animals on a daily basis, some days I am the crocodile and you don't want to mess with me and other times I am the butterfly delicate and beautiful. My deepest hope is this song will help other woman realise and stand in their power.

    As we grow older, learning should always be there. We should never stop learning because that could possibly put us in a place that we want to be. if you have problems, there are plenty of [url=https://www.resumehelpaustralia.com/resume-solutions-review/]resume solutions[/url] that are just waiting for you. Maturity comes in many forms; and it can also be achieved with the way you manage your problems. What I like about you is the fact that you are open to people.
