One Journey Ends, Another One Begins, Such is Eternal Healing
Its a gloriously crisp and sunny day in the heart of the Scottish Borders today and nature is singing, “spring is on its way”. That said; I too am feeling spring like for I know that I’m walking away from a thirty year dark winter. Indeed the end of a most dramatic, traumatic and life changing healing journey, to be replaced by a new healing, learning and clearing journey. That said and just over 25 years ago amidst my own and seemingly insurmountable darkness, I sat and chatted with my mentor of that time chief petty officer SB. A remarkable man who’d transformed his own inner knowings. Setting the scene; we met to discuss how I was doing after a period of deep introspection the result of his guidance on matters relating to self liberation and supportive reading. Therein; SB enquired where I was now at? My reply; “I’m sitting on a train inside a sleepy little train station, I have no idea where I’m going but I’m excited by the prospect of the journey that’s about to unfold”. Little did I know then that that journey would thrust me into the alchemistic fires of calcination, dissolution, separation, conjunction, fermentation, distillation and coagulation consuming almost 80% of my current mortality. Year after year breaking me down and stripping away that which did not serve my higher self. Which in essence was the most painful and brutalising nihilism journey that I could possibly undertake. All part of my own gut wrenching hero’s journey, a journey which frankly changed all things and forever, for when all things change, we change with them. Indeed that very point when I truly understood self love, selfless love and unconditional love and the I am that I am. That very point where the glow of my soul, eclipsed all my mortal woes and they all fell away like autumn leaves in a stiff breeze. Indeed that point where I truly understood and wholeheartedly acknowledged for the first time in my mortality, that I am who I am not because of all the suffering and pain I’ve endured. But because I’m an instinctive and courageous; multidimensional thinker and above all things; a divine and timeless spiritual being as we all are too.
The Alchemist, Shaman and Shamanic Self Healer Within
Many years on and with much personal insight, wisdom and understanding gathered along the way, I realised several months ago that my current healing journey was coming to an end and that I was on the cusp of a brand new healing journey. Perhaps that’s why I committed to writing my numerous “an exercise in – posts”, all part of documenting my own personal healing and releasing, who knows? All I know is that when spirit nudges resistance is futile and I’ve embraced that energetic flow wholeheartedly and for some considerable time now. That said and earlier this week I was having a catch up with my shamanic mentor and as ever we discussed that most pertinent to my healing and clearing. Therein and one of the things we discussed was that I felt no inclination to write anymore. Smiling she replied; “that’s very normal for soul journeys like yours, for often I’ve observed that those old souls committed to mastering the magician and warrior that resides deep within them, all to often and for no apparent reason simply evaporate into the ether”. Followed by; “and that’s really alright Barry, for as you’ve already indicated that journey is over”. Now of course and yes as my mentor stated it really is alright, but for me, well I felt sort of uneasy with the apparent lack of closure, because I believe closure always brings with it greater overall healing and healing is the greatest gift on this planet.
Therein and with that state of unease, perhaps heightened by a stream of email enquiries in recent weeks asking; “why no writing and am I okay?” I was compelled to write this “journeys ending” post today. For it was important that I articulated that all was indeed well and that the absence of new posts simply reflected my current journeys ending. Therein its important that I articulate that I won’t be writing anymore posts for this blog albeit the blog will remain active and there’s a very real possibility that I will refine certain posts. Why no more posts my followers and readers may rightfully ask?
Well my Raphael’s Legacy healing journey has reached its conclusion and I believe that all future writings and presentations will take on subtly different topics and forms too. That said; as and when the timing is right I will post a link below to any new blog or indeed YouTube presentations that I create in the coming months and years.
In the interim period I’d like to extend my grateful thanks to all My Raphael’s Legacy blog readers and followers one and all for the warmth of your company during my often testing journey. Namaste
In Closing; A Little Bit of Healing Wisdom, Food For Ones Soul
I’ve been told many times in this my current mortality that; “I can’t do this and I shouldn’t do that and above all things there’s nothing that “they” can do to help me”. Nevertheless and time after time amidst my unrelenting darkness I ignored such complete and utter nonsense, for not to do so would have resulted in my stagnation and premature expiry. Therein; its important to note that we alone ultimately choose just how we will live out our mortality. We can choose to stay asleep and grub around in the darkness, or we can reach for the light and evolve. Well hard though it’s often been I’ve always reached for the light, for my soul craved healing and the grace in vibrational alignment, for alignment is the god force within all. Therein; moving back into vibrational alignment is the process of healing ones body, clearing ones mind and freeing ones soul. A sublimely eloquent and synergistic coming together, with one central goal; “to remove from ones being all forms of dis-ease”. In essence a simple, yet timeless alchemistic process, that really has no beginnings and certainly no endings, for we are eternal, we are one and anything and everything.
In Giving, Oneness & Destiny, “I Am That, I Am”
I am whole, I am light, I am peace, I am love, I am loved, I am health, I am healthy, I am wealth, I am wealthy, I am abundant, I am abundance, I am joy, I am joyous, I am happy, I am happiness, I am oneness, I am an author, I am a teacher, I am a healer, I am a shaman, I am a sage, I am a medicine man, “I am that, I am”. Namaste
Authors Guide Notes In Relation to Contacting Him
I have no medical or clinical qualifications, therein; I only reply to emails where I can be of shamanic service, those looking for medical/clinical advice must seek that from appropriately qualified individuals. Equally I frequently change my email address as and when excess spam et al becomes an issue, so don’t worry if you have an email address for me which bounces. Simply fill in my contact form by clicking my shamanic image above and I’m sure to receive your email, albeit and unless I can help please note I won’t reply. Either way, I wish all a life filled with; love, light and peace. Namaste & Amen
