So, I’m thinking about purchasing a shaman drum. I’ve been wanting one for quite a while, and at this very moment I feel like I could squeeze it into my reality. After getting my new pup, Boyo, and a few shaky weeks for starters, there is nothing that needs to be done immediately, so I figured I should start looking.
At this very moment, I am choosing between two drums. I’m buying online, and I’ve looked around for quite a while. I don’t have a lot of money, so I don’t want to get the most expensive drum I can find – on the contrary. The less money involved, the better, without being disrespectful to the maker.
One of the drums was handmade by people actually creating shamanic drums. It costs a little bit more than I’d like, but it’s very pretty and has a very nice sound to it. The other drum is sold through a drum online store, I have no idea who made it, but it’s beautiful and sounds amazing, plus the pricing is very affordable.
And all of a sudden, I asked a friend of mine for advice. She too liked the sound of the more affordable drum, and it ended up with me ordering it.
Oh, wow. I am about to get myself a drum. I’ve been wanting this for so long, and now, one is on its way. It’s pretty and sounds amazing too. I cannot wait until it’s actually here. I look forward to spending time with it, and see what we’ll be able to do and create together.
To me, this is one of the steps towards my main goal; living as close to nature as I can. Since many more years than I care to count, I live in the city. It’s practical in many ways, but it also happens to be very distractive. There are too many people and too much negative and destructive energy, and too much of pretty much everything that I don’t want to participate in.
Purchasing a drum may seem like a very small step, but for me, it’s quite huge, actually. It gets me a bit closer to being who I want to be, but have yet not had the opportunity to become.
Oooh, but really, I cannot wait to get my hands on this drum. I do so look forward of all the journeys we’ll do together. I’d like to introduce my whole family to it; that is, Molly, my 8 years old black housecat, and Boyo, my 3 months old black german shepherd. And I want to bring Boyo with me into the forest somewhere, and journey there.
I am so going to appreciate not having to use the youtube clips I’ve been listening to – and it’s not that I don’t like, enjoy or appreciate them, because I do. It’s just that none of them has worked very well for me, and my journeying has been pretty much non-existent.
So with this, I am hoping that my shamanic practise will be more frequent and – actually happening. There is so much internal work to be done, but so far very little has been accomplished due to my difficulty journeying. With my own drum, I am hoping for a great change on that matter.
The photographs above are part of my visual wishlist for future living. I want to live close to, or even in the forest. I want to see, feel and experience the changes in nature, and I want to be close to the spirits of the elements and Mother Earth herself.
Wish me luck in finding that. ♥
