The book opens on a promising note with the premise that although we might have strayed from a meaningful spiritual path in this life, there is hope. We can regenerate ourselves in this era where past, present and future are all simultaneously accessible, enabling us learn how to walk freely between dimensions. This liberating notion is accompanied by the explanation that we can each choose to manifest our most ideal futures by using breathing techniques, dreams and meditation.
Star Wolf takes us on a journey that embarks with a description of her earliest experience of walking between the worlds. Drawing on Gods and archetypal imagery from the Egyptian Pantheon and Native American mythology she discusses her understanding of dreams and their interpretation en route to her initiation into visionary shamanism. Much of her guidance is inspired by the wisdom of gifted elder Grandmother Twylah Nitsch, Wolf Clan Grandmother of the Seneca Tribe. As she tells her personal story she discusses concepts such as activating our imaginal cells – a means to open the portals to the difference dimension, types of shamanic portals, and the difference between the spirit, soul and ego.
These ideas are imbued with wonderful color and spiritual wisdom and they also obviously have a much deeper practical meaning for each individual. Though interspersed with hints and clues, the book is disappointingly lacking in either tools or exercises to help the reader explore these notions on a deeper, more personal level. This is an autobiography rather than a guidebook to activating your own imaginal cells.
