This blog is about my spiritual journey as a shaman and a seeker.

Sitting in the South comes from the pagan elemental system of cardinal points (North, South, East and West) as means of framing spiritual vibrations. South represents fire, protection, strength, trust and spirits, but it also is the place of self. To be sitting in the South is to be resting in the Self, the place from which to approach a spiritual journey.

    You have a lovely blog. Thank you for creating it.

    You write that ‘sitting in the south’ means ‘resting in the self.’

    But what if the buddha-dharma is correct and there is no self? Will you be resting in a delusion?

    Thank you

    I only know that there is a part of the Universe that I and others view in a way that creates me and that’s what I have to work with.

    Delightful to meet you reddvenus. It sounds like this is an exquisite point of many transitions for you, as it is for me and so many others. Riding the waves of the ripples of chaos can be an experience which raises your vibrational frequencies to new heights, and it sounds like that is precisely what you are doing! Well done 🙂

    From one redhead to another 😉
