Spirit Ally Journey
Power Object and power ally
Throughout many shamanic cultures all over the world spirit guides or allies hold a powerful position and function.
Often the guides are in the form or expression of animals. Some are said to arrive with us when we are born and stay with us our entire life. These totem-ships work as a representation of the core qualities alive in the individual and through bonding with the understanding of this allyship, deep insights and perspectives are shared when conscious awareness is shared, or moves, between the self and the ally.
It is through this shared awareness that self-reflection, self-love, and self-support becomes more potent. As we are able to shift from our fixed perceptions into that or those of the allies; seeing ourself, the world and our place within the meanings of life in expanded and more magical ways.
Also these bonds help us to remove the separation that modern cultures have had created within us - between nature, spirit and our animal kind.
The allies are not always animals and can take on the expression of many forms, sometimes it may be the perennial architypes like, the old wise seer or seeress, a hero, queen or medicine/shamanic guide.
Simply, when we make contact and weave a story around these allyships and our own life there is a sense that you do not walk alone in this world.
And that is powerful in and of itself.
This is one definition of power that allies create.
Of which there are many.
That is why these allies are called - power animals and power allies - and why, when objects are carved or created to represent them, they are called - power objects.
I have a totem and several power allies that I have honoured and loved for much of my life.
Helping others to find and strengthen the bonds to theirs is a passion and joy of mine and I would be honoured to carve out your ally into the real and assist in creating and strengthening the power bond.
