Drumming To Journey By
A Continuous Drumming Atmosphere
Stimulating Support For Journeying
With Gentle Call Back
The compelling consciousness altering sounds on this CD are woven
into an enticing rhythm produced by four traditionally crafted drums,
a traditional ceremonial deer toe rattle, the resonant singing of two
crystal bowls activated only by the sounds of the drums, and the
distant whispering of an ancient calling chant.
These haunting sounds heighten your state of consciousness and allow
you to easily move into the deep state of trance that is utilized in
spirit journeying and other ceremonies and to hold this level of
consciousness for as long as you choose.
The drumming and other sounds are an integral part of the ceremonies
and are said to “carry you”: they become your sacred vehicle into the
realms of the unknown.
Created By Kay Cordell Whitaker
Kay is the author of The Reluctant Shaman and Sacred Link.
In addition to Drumming To Journey By Kay has also created a number
of other shamanic journey CDs: Amazon Drumming To Journey By,
Song Magic, Dance Of The Earth Fire Serpent and Power Animal Journey.
This drumming CD can be used to assist in any form of journeying and
in many other ceremonies, rituals and meditations.
Here are a few suggestions to help you in your pursuits:
1. In the Hetakas’ tradition of eastern Peru spirit journeys are
usually performed inside a small circle altar made out of “stone
people.” These ceremonies are profoundly more effective and far safer
when performed inside the altar space. Follow this link for instructions
on building this form of sacred space. These instructions are also part
of “The Dance Of The Earth Fire Serpent” CD.
2. For a step by step guide on how to spirit journey, consult “Power
Animal Journey” CD by Kay Cordell Whitaker.
3. There are many worlds and an endless number of places that can be
visited in a spirit journey. The more focused you are about your
purpose and the place you want to visit, the easier, clearer and more
successful your entire quest will be.
4. In this tradition it is important that your physical body does not
distract you. If your limbs go to sleep or cramp the distraction might
pull your spirit back into your physical body. To avoid this, get as
comfortable as you can without encouraging drowsiness. Sitting
comfortably on the ground or in a chair is the best way to ensure
relaxation and alertness.
5. Do not attempt to spirit journey if you are sleepy. The frequencies
that you operate within during sleep are very similar to the
frequencies of deep trance and it is all too easy to follow the
cultural habit when your consciousness shifts to these states of being
and slip off into sleeping and dreaming.
6. Select a quiet place where there will be no interruptions and
unplug the phone.
7. Before you begin your quest clearly intend to stay awake and to
remember everything you experience and learn.
8. Take no assumptions or expectations with you. Leave doubts behind.
Make no judgments of others or self while in the ceremony process.
9. It is important for your whole being to register and anchor the
experiences and knowledge that you will gain. This is accomplished by
moving your whole body as much as possible as soon as you return. Move
every muscle and stand and dance inside your altar. If you have a
rattle, hold it in your right hand and rattle loudly close to your
right ear. The sounds and the movement will hold your consciousness at
a higher level and allow for total integration.
10. Record your experiences immediately either by writing them down or
speaking them into a recorder or to a friend. This helps anchor the
experience in all parts of your being including your linear mind. It
gives you an opportunity to discover whole new perspectives.
11. These ceremonies, as with ceremonies and meditations of other
traditions, increase the available energy many times over with each
person that is added to the participating group.
12. Don’t be discouraged! Spirit journeying is a unique and
unaccustomed experience for people in our modern culture. And like
most things its fruitfulness increases with practice.
