The Magic and Mystery of Life
Dear Friends,
Happy Spring!
Here in the Northeast we are just seeing bulbs pop out of the ground and little buds on some of the trees. Some areas have snow on the ground. Spring begins in our heart.
This newsletter is about how Shamanism and aligned practices empower your life and spiritual understanding. There is so much more to know and understand. It is not religious, as all traditions have natural Shamanic healers and ways.
Today, you do not have to be a Shaman to access higher spiritual connections, energy, and wisdom through Shamanic practices, initiations, and awareness. Shamanism is all about being natural and organic, real, and not ideal. 
In teaching and healing with Shamanism in our work here with Janet and Be The Medicine, we work with Universal Laws focused on purity and truth which eliminates confusion and releases any side trips into alternative worlds that do not support us. We learn to see our challenges and heal and deal with them in ways that awaken our direct path to greater awareness in practical matters, and enlightenment in everyday life.
Janet's focus in her work has always been to assist people in having their own authentic experience. Janet researched what blocks us from connecting directing to spirit and the divine to assist people to let go and allow these experiences to occur naturally. In her teaching and private sessions Janet helps you to have direct experiences to who you are and the higher levels of the spirit in all things to assist in healing and accessing innate wisdom. 
Once we move out of our box of expectations we find we are so much more than we thought and there are options that we did not know existed for our life and us. Students and clients leave empowered to be who they are and it is a glorious experience and often a wonderful surprise. Shamanism is a perfect way to commune with the wisdom in nature and the life in all things
Janet StraightArrow brings a unique quality to the work. Her extensive studies of traditions from around the world allow great understanding, compassion, and oneness without fear or separation. StraightArrow's focus on truth assists you in learning discernment in your Shamanic journey's and your life, which allows great wisdom, and authentic healing to occur.
When in safety and knowledge we can have great fun in our explorations. Sincerity replaces serious, curiosity replaces limitation. Life and our practice becomes fun!
Enjoy the blossoming of Spring in the earth and you!
Enjoy the Journey,
Janet StraightArrow
Be The Medicine, Live the Power of You.

Natural Shamanism
Shamanism is a path of service to the planet, her people, and the community. Shamans have been the original holistic healers in traditions around the world and are known for their ability to heal themselves.
A Shaman is a person who dedicates their lives answering their spiritual calling of service. They have a spiritual focus that is inclusive of mind, body, emotions, and soul.
Connecting with our spirit and the spirit in all things awakens meaning to life and helps us understand more levels of us and all. Today people are practicing Shamanism and are helpful in the community to do their part to support healing and spiritual awareness and growth in these times.
The primary purpose to pursue Shamanism is to learn and heal through a direct connection to our spirit, soul, and spiritual guidance. To do this, we break out of ego limitation to the subtle realms of spirit to awaken higher wisdom and knowledge. Nature, animals, seasonal and life cycles, and all of life on earth and beyond are honored in Shamanic practice.
The Shamanic Journey is a way to accomplish our spiritual awareness and connections and is a discipline to experience and explore. Learning with an experienced teacher allows you to safely travel, learn, discern, heal, and discover the truth of us on many levels. This practice is also a way to determine our path of service and purpose.
Some traditions use drums and rattles and gongs to move into the subtle Shamanic realms.  Some others will use breath work, dance, or song and move into a deep connection. Each tradition offers unique perspectives. Natural products like sage, stones, and feathers are used by some practitioners for cleansing and healing.
There is no need to use drugs for a natural Shamanic experience as when we achieve an authentic spiritual connection; we awaken bliss, happiness, fantastic visions, and higher truth and love.
A natural Shamanic practice is used with an open mind and loving heart focused on being of service to all. Explored with pure intent, we create a sacred space to connect, heal, learn and grow. Shamanism is a precious natural way to awaken, heal and be.

Janet StraightArrow discovered her Shamanic calling in 1992, at the age of forty, as a single mom and top Realtor who had been studying spirituality and healing for twenty-years and living it. She began teaching immediately from memory and continuously awakening higher wisdom and sacred knowledge. She found she carried many lineages from around the world and pursued studies to bring Ancient wisdom together for our modern world today.
She has studied with Native American, Tibetan, Celtic, Toltec, African, Huichol, and Siberian Shamans and Shamanic practitioners Michael Harner, Sandra Ingerman, and others at the foundation for Shamanic Studies, and renowned spiritual healing masters from Yoga, Sufism, Zen, Buddhism, and other traditions around the world and found the unity and unique perspectives and gifts that fill in the missing pieces to make us whole again.
Live the Power of You!
StraightArrow’s work and mission Be The Medicine is the “how” to live healing and our true self in service to all simply, easily, and directly with joy. More on Shamanism and Soul Shamanism on this website. See her upcoming pieces of training and a summer Vision Quest retreat on the calendar page. Private sessions weekly.
This work empowers each person to walk their walk and increase their energy and awareness. Holistic practitioners will benefit and so will their clients and students. People from all walks of life will feel more connected to self, others, life, nature, and the earth.
