Part 2 of “Shamans and Dreams” on January 11 “Why Shamanism Now?” Radio Show with Christina Pratt

As a follow-up to her January 4 radio show "Why Shamanism Now? A Practical Path to Authenticity,” teacher, author, and founder of the Last Mask Center for Shamanic Healing Christina Pratt continues to talk about dreams – the many different kinds, how they come to be, and how to best interpret their messages.

Portland, OR, January 08, 2011 --( Streaming live on the Co-Creator Radio Network ( on Tuesday, January11, at 11 a.m. Pacific time/2 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 tells listeners that Spirits produce dreams, but not necessarily all dreams. This is important because it means that there are potentially multiple spirits producing dreams, not just a single human soul. According to Pratt, spirits producing dreams can be: personal souls; helping spirits; or non-helping spirits, such as the dead stuck in the land of the living, upset elementals, or angry spirits of the place. And it’s these non-helping spirits that we need to be concerned with.

In this episode of “Why Shamanism Now?” titled “Shamans and Dreams,” the second of two parts on the topic, Pratt stresses that dreams, no matter their source, are messages. They are gateways to a field of non-localized, non-ordinary information/experience and we need to be sure who is tending that gate. Dreams can be tests, seductions, and distractions that lead us away from our truth in subtle ways we never see coming just as certainly as they are guides, warnings, and teachings that can keep us on the path of our true calling. To keep our dreams clear and free of pollution, we must be impeccable in our lives, live free of fear-based thoughts and motivations, and align with the love light of true awareness. With this in mind, Pratt explains to listeners how shamans interpret dream messages, dream states, and the true source of our dreams.
