WARNING: HIGH VOLTAGE
This workbook is designed to further invoke and clarify the presence of the shamanic archetype within your psyche. If this immensely powerful archetype is activating within you, trustworthy support is necessary in order to incarnate it safely—in a way that is healthily integrated into your psyche without producing delusions of grandeur and various other pathologies. This material must be approached with the utmost humility and caution.
`
And remember:
`
***DO NOT CONFUSE YOUR UNIQUE INIDIVIDUALITY WITH A UNIVERSAL ARCHETYPE***
`
For protection against this dangerous delusion, affirm the following:
`
“I am not a shaman, nor should I ever refer to myself as such. I will never be a shaman, nor should I ever aspire to become one. HOWEVER, I feel deeply and urgently called to undergo some form of initiation into my higher spiritual nature, and I AM working hard to incarnate certain facets of the shamanic archetype in my life and in my soul, following my path, and that is enough.”
`
Good luck, brave souls! I hope this proves useful to you in your journey.
`
Yours in fellowship,
`
