Portland, OR, November 15, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Streaming live on the Voice America Network (www.voiceamerica.com) on Wednesday, November 18 at 2 p.m. Pacific time/5 p.m. Eastern time, on her show "Why Shamanism Now?: A Practical Path to Authenticity,” shaman and founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing Christina Pratt says that our destiny is already present. It is here with us from the moment of our birth, and yet we are unclear. What you miss is that Life is constantly showing us the steps, but we don’t know how to hear, read the signs, or follow the steps. In this behavior you commit the one True Sin: you stand in the way of your own destiny.
According to Pratt, with shamanic skills we can engage with all of our life—even our sins and those committed against us—and see them for what that they are: the path to our destiny. In this episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “Sin and Your Destiny”, host Christina Pratt discusses “sin” in shamanism and its relationship with our destiny. Explaining sin as a “moral evil” is a challenge in a shamanic world where everything is connected and all are One. The threat of sin only really works in non-shamanic systems that profess a fundamental separation from God. However if everything is a gift, then what is sin? Pratt says that even sin can be a gift -- a stone to be turned that, in the turning, moves us a little further along the path to our destiny.
