Research Styles and enquiry into Ceremonial Research:



Recently, as I have been accepting my pathway into the practice of Core-Shamanism as long endeavour, it became important that I also look into my modes of research as an emergent future(s)-focused shamanic practice.

Through discussions with teachers and in seeking a non-dogmatic approach for my artistic speculations, I have come to the idea of opening up current research projects as open-source ‘guides’, for other practitioners, [also reiki healers, or Qi Gong practitioners, or otherwise] who have interest.

I have taken this approach because I feel the nature of an authentic future focused shamanic way of being is 100% based on a dynamic, non-heirachical, hypernetwork of abundance - a community TRIBE.

Without real community, without being in dynamic interplay with one another’s creativity and desire, we cannot move our personal power into the world. It has nowhere to flow.

Having connection - resonating - being seen and in turn, trully seeing and supporting the creativity of others - expands our energy, supports our transformations and helps making ‘the impossible dream’, possible.

If you feel you are in my tribe but we don’t know eachother yet - this is your invitation to get in contact with me.

The current research doc which is open source is a deep dive into co-creating your relationships with digital spaces / social media from the project Saya Soma: Shadow body in encoded system.

ABSTRACT:

What is the psychic matter held within what we call "the internet" and what beginning precedence is this giving to the psyche and spirituality of virtual spaces and in turn, towards .ai consciousness?

How is collective consciousness distributed over the internet as a medium?

How much, and which energy is held within, in a transitory state - given by users and trapped ('un-manifested') within the system, creating residue 'psychic matter' within this virtual space?

How much and what exact energy is not originating directly from users, but originating from the network, itself?

What does this mean for [core] Shamanic Work, all energetic healers and therapists?

Can the internet be used as a tool - like a drum, or a mirror - in order to see the unconscious, transfer power, mediate emotional suffering of the collective and empower the human species on a spirit level?

What does the growth of the internet in the collective life and evolution of the human species mean, for the modern-day core-Shamanic Practitioner, now and in the future?





- “SAYA-SOMA” : An Embodiment of Collective Intuition Woundings mirrored in the Digital Age. [TRAUMA + SOUL RETRIEVAL WITHIN THE DIGITAL]


The digital mirror provides a sharp and dynamic reflection, as witness, giving opportunity for rich, mass integration.

Shamanic cultures view the mirror as tool, and the mirror’s greatest source of power is light.

On this pretence, we’ve a vital and relevant chance to heal through shining light (awareness, consciousness) into the digital. My work activates this ‘tool’ in use.

I would like to propose a text from the perspective of Shamanic Soul Retrieval work, discussing the body-psyche within the coded system of trauma fragmentation and linking this to a simultaneous spiritual soul retrieval work, to be carried out within our digital spaces and documented for publication.

In shamanism, a fragmented soul is perceived as missing part of soul power, which occurs throughout human life due to trauma, the most basic example: the lifelong trauma of a vast and connected-to-source soul entity, ripped out of the spirit realm and placed into human limitations where it must reside, being at constant odds with ego and conscious-self.


In Psychotherapy, a fragmented self is a part which split off to survive in the face of trauma.

Fragmented and exiled parts of our psyche ‘work’ following set coded systems. Based on strong belief, much like a coded algorithm, they write an entire reality, which most often becomes distorted and inflexible.

The ‘body-psyche’ lives within the coded system of our personal and collective trauma fragmentations. Everything humans perceive and create is in relationship with these fragments and codes. Varying states of embodiment, being the communication tool of psyche within the physical plane, is the outcome of our emotional, mental and spiritual ‘code’.

“Saya-Soma” is a new concept I am working out currently: Saya, the Hindi/Urdu word for ‘shadow’, Soma, pertaining to somatic, of the body.

The “Saya-Soma” for me, is the embodiment of The Shadow within the physical realm. Her playground is the body. She presents herself through sufferings and reoccurring physical illnesses, syndromes and ailments that may seem unexplainable in their reoccurrence and severity at certain life moments: the ‘Saya-Soma’ speaks her coded language though “trigger”.

Within this essay, the “Saya-Soma" will be looked upon as a “technology of the body”.

‘Saya-Soma’ once known and befriended, can offer a heightened capacity for compassion and feeling, an "empathic technology” of the body, in connection with mind and soul, what we can read from the body is a pathway for freedom. We rewrite the algorithms of our embodied reality, expressing the nature of co-creative reality.

Without the evolution of digital ontology, this coded language of belief systems would not be so clear. It is the Algorithm that allows us new examples of how a Shadow bias can be multiplied and end up showing an outcome which exposes parts of our collective psyche usually kept hidden from ourselves.

We see our collective shadow and all of our fragmented selves reflected back to us through the digital mirror, through Ai. The ‘body of the algorithm’ ‘plays out’ to expose and amplify a shadow nature left behind by each human finger print upon the digital.

The digital mirror is doing a great job at amplifying, but this experience needs to be one of integration, not only fragmentation.

The effects of social media on parts of the psyche that have been exiled or abandoned, due to the space not being compassionate and muddied with shame, fear and power imbalances express a need for compassionate treatments of the social-digital.

Facebook exists, in shamanic representation: caught in a slice of the middle world within non ordinary reality, the same spaces lost souls get lost within. (Some might call it “limbo”.)

Can we heal our collective trauma body, if we heal the fragmented digital body?

What if these bodies are interchangeable, one and the same?

If I can feel, through my physicality, the bodies and many selves I fragment off into social media, how can this become a tool for more intentional growth within the digital to support integration?

Perhaps there is no more fitting way than to work shamanicaly with Soul Retrieval work, with the digital.

If the digital is acting as mirror, any work done in the digital space will reflect back into i-consciousness.
