From my vantage, this is a proof of interconnection and access to other realms where all knowledge is held. Through the intention of the shaman, he was able to access these signs that are intricately woven into Jim's experience. This is an ordinary act of Divination. We are all capable of accessing and divining our own paths through the archetypal realm, along with the capacity to reflect this for "others".
There is a native man on the painting, Eagles in the name, I resonate deeply with. I feel a presence behind me, and remember back to when Erin told me of her witnessing of a tall Guide's presence behind me, before I left for Indiana, at her and Aha's Sanctuary in Crestone, abundant with plant life and the Music of the Plants....
I continue the journey in the truck, happy with the manifestations coming to fruit. On my journey I stop at a rest stop and encounter a young man, reading a book I saw as I pulled up. I go in and glide by, "whatcha reading? " he replies, "a book from the dungeons and dragons mythology," he winces expectantly...I reply "ah I love the realms of myths and magic, " smile and go about my business.
As I go to the counter I see he is wearing a crystal pendant, I ask him about it, and tells me he recieved it after getting out of the military from a friend of his, emparted with the intention of healing. "Did he change your life? " I asked, "for the better" he replies.
There is a sincerity about him, a spark of awareness. From the depths of Awareness the realmsigns are pointing to him being at a precipice of awakening, and a full on rebirth. He will drop the shackles and pick up a new life.
Then I speak with him on the Hero's Journey, that are found in all the great stories, like the one he is reading, and that there is a thread that connects them all. Every hero receives a calling, and knows when it is time to embark on their quest. This is a sign, a series of Synchronicities, that leads them into mysterious and irresistible new path.
He mentions Hawaii. I run out the truck and bring in a picture of Pele, that I found in a picture book from a childhood visit to Hawaii, a few night before leaving Indiana....I too am having the call. I have been driving with a dashboard altar featuring Pele and wooden hand clasped with the pinky and thumb out inscribed with 'Hawaii'.
