The Eagles Gift

I am already given to the power that rules my fate.

And I cling to nothing, so I will have nothing to defend.

I have no thoughts, so I will see.

I fear nothing, so I will remember myself.

Detached and at ease, I will dart past the Eagle to be free.

Carlos Castaneda

This is an incantation given to Castaneda by Silvio Manuel, one of the sorcerer shamans or Toltec Warriors in his seminal work “The Eagles Gift”.

The Eagle is the place where we all end up. Unless we become impeccable warriors and make our bid for freedom by becoming ‘free’ within this lifetime. Freedom from fear and attachment allows the natural joy to spring from within us as we wake up to life’s larger playing field, the non physical dimensions, or quantum reality.

About Phoebe Thomasson

I am in love with expression in all forms; art, poetry, writing, music, dance...I want to inspire creativity, foster understanding and nurture the process of transformation in myself and others. In short, I want to evolve. This requires trust in speaking one's truth and freedom from fear and shame. If we cannot speak our truth without shame, then we have far to go! Join me as I heal my psyche through the creative process and find interesting perspectives as I go about my personal evolution as an artist, mother, and Shaman.
