Are humans really intelligent ?

Are humans really intelligent ? …power of the ego .

Hi all,

It’s been ages since my last post, busy learning about human ego,  the intelligence of the kingdom of plants and animals and it gets me thinking…...Are humans really intelligent , or are we driven by the power of our ego ?

Ego says “Mirror Mirror on the wall…..who really is the most intelligent of us all ?” 

The thing that most separates us from plants and animals in my humble opinion isn’t intelligence, it’s EGO!

Think about it. …..
🤔Plants can survive without humans , ( yet not without animals and insects) any yet we cannot survive without them……..plants literally give us the air we breathe.
This reminds me of the film “Avitar “ …our wonderful ego driven intellect tells us we get to control all life ….so we throw our power around and we forget that by controlling we are also destroying.
We have become so closed we forgot to “feel “ and “ tune in”. In our modern world , most humans have become reactionary creatures rather than responsive creatures ….maybe if we tuned out of our EGO based intellect and used that 6th sense …..well we might not be in quite the pickle we are in now !

🤔Plants have an extremely complex sensory system ( similar to our central nervous system in many ways ) and are capable of gathering infinite amounts of information about the world ( such as light detection, sensing harmful invaders and communication to other plants to defend or re-route growth direction). The brain of the plant kingdom is that amazing root structure.

🤔 Animals have super intelligent systems , for example many birds are able to locate seeds that they have buried the year before .  Their navigation and memory pinpoints , and is able to locate the seed to within millimetres and is able to detect locations of up to 30,000 seeds in up to 10,000 locations. This shows huge capacity for both mathematical calculation and a memory capacity far superior to the human ability ( I barely remember what I had for breakfast !).

🤔 Timeline shows us plants are about 450 million years old , and animals 640 million years old. We are quite young really in the evolution chain . I read a quote recently (Mary Midgley)
“ did Darwin pin up a paper warning himself to be careful when using the words higher and lower “ .

🤔 There is only one way that we have evolved to a greater perceived “ strength” against plants and animals in my humble opinion and that is our power to kill.
We are so highly EGO intelligent that we create guns to shoot animals ( and each other ) , we create poisons to damage plants, animals ( and each other ) , we torture animals ( and each other ) . Notice the theme (of each other) with all of these amazing intelligent powers we have …..makes you wonder whether we should redefine what intelligence really means !

Shamanic healing

Embracing The Earth – The Shamanic Path

Embracing The Earth – The Shamanic Path

Hi all,

as many of you know I am currently on a 2 year training programme to become an Eco Shamanic Practitioner.
This month the training involve “The Embrace of the Earth Ceremony” more commonly termed the “ Burial “ traditionally.

I have been asked a lot about this , and I am not surprised at the mixture of responses I have received from this process ….I think in life our fears come from the unknown so I will try to explain more about what “Embracing The Earth “ really means on The Shamanic Path.
As my “Embracing The Earth “ or “Burial” ceremony has yet to happen I thought I would blog both before and after the ceremony as the perspective is often vey different to the experience itself in life.

So “Embracing of the Earth Ceremony” (my before perspectives).

In our lives many of us are looking for a deeper and profound “ something “ and yet we do not really reach out ….to go there and to really challenge ourselves to discover who we really are ……that deep level. We just stay in the mundane.

The Shamans Path teaches you to look beneath the surface , break free from the ego and grow through trusting the hidden senses.

Quite often in the modern world our perception of death is a terrifying one where death is regarded as dark, scary, mysterious, unknown and fearful and whilst we all know that this death is an event which comes to each and everyone of us , it is something we avoid talking about or giving it attention because of our lack of information ( therefore fear ) about it.
Ancient cultures did not look upon death as a fearful enemy, it was embraced, celebrated and seen as the transition to growth, rebirth and a positive friend.

The “ Embracing The Earth “ ceremony on the shamanic path is ultimately about releasing fears into the earth and allowing yourself to be reborn to live fearlessly from the centre of your truth.
This process strips away our fears of life , the ego , the mundane , aging , illness etc.

Through the “ Embracing the Earth “ ceremony the awareness of our “burial or little death  “ can be utilised to expand our consciousness, to learn from this seemingly mysterious event to bring the wisdom back into our daily life and live with a heightened awareness and drop out of fears.
Awareness of our death actually empowers us as we have a much higher level of knowledge.

In “The Embrace of the Earth “Ceremony the shamanic path recognises that there comes a point where we need to release (“ little death of ”) the old Self so that something new, awakened, more powerful, enriching and beautiful can be born and grow.

Burial into the Earth is a sacred ceremony for letting go of the past and accepting the healing , nourishing and blessings of our first mother Earth “ Gaia “ .
It is a celebration of life, an acknowledgement of a new future, and a stripping away of the past hurts, fears and ego.

Look out for my blog in a couple of weeks giving you an insight into the actual “Embracing The Earth “ ceremony.
