My Shamanism studies continue, now via a book widely considered a requisite first-read for any pursuing this path: The Way of the Shaman by Michael Harner, with whom my teacher studied/s. Many more quotes and notes to come, but for today, this small pull re positive reinforcement by way of synchronicities. Do coincidences exist or are they affirmation that we are where we should be when we should be because we knew to be, without knowing that we knew to be? You know my opinion.
In shamanic work it is important to be on the lookout for the occurrence of positive synchronicities, for they are the signals that power is working to produce effects far beyond the normal bounds of probability. In fact, watch for the frequency of positive synchronicities as a kind of homing beacon analogous to a radio directional signal to indicate that the right procedures and methods are being employed.
