Shaman or Professor – What type of Teacher are You?

As holistic healers and teachers, we have all spent time learning at the feet of our gurus – those Master Teachers who have walked the life path and generously provided their wisdom words for our betterment.

Like me, you may have had some teachers that you resonated with immensely, and then others where it seemed to fall flat. But once we discover our passion – the subject we love, learn and desire to teach – we might think back on past teachers and wonder, “How can I truly reach my students with LIGHT and insights for quantum change?”

Teaching from your Soul Center

An amazing life-path astrologer, Brook Jasmyn, explained the transforming time for Planet Earth that we are all experiencing now. In great service, as Healers & Teachers, we chose THIS TIME to reincarnate and assist humanity in higher consciousness growth.

In light of that, we would be ushering in a different type of teaching than what has been anchored here for the last 2,000 years; bringing the Shaman to take the place of the Professor.

Piscean Age transits to Aquarian Age

Humanity is leaving the Piscean Age and transitioning into the Aquarian Age. This brings in a different type of teacher. Let’s explore what the ‘Ages’ mean:

According to astrology wisdom dating back to Hipparchus in 127 BC, the planet transitions backwards through the astrological signs (based on the vernal equinox transits) every 2,160 years. This means that the planet and humanity experience the qualities of that astrological sign for that period. If each sign is experienced, we have a full transition on the planet of about 25,920 years.

NOTE: this corresponds to the Mayan long count calendar transition where they calculated the end of a cycle of the Earth’s precession (wobble on its axis) – at 26,000 years. This was confirmed through the Milankovitch Theory in the 1920’s.

Many astrologers shorten this period to a straight 2,000 years, for ease in counting, and explain that we are in ‘cross-over’ of both signs at the front and back of each transition. So, for ease in counting, it is said that from approximately 1 AD to the year 2000, we were in the PISCEAN Age. Now, from the year 2,000 to the year 4,000, we will be in the AQUARIAN Age. Each age carries a ‘thought consciousness’ related to that astrological sign that pervades humanity’s growth and actions.

Becoming an Aquarian Teacher

Let’s review a chart that shows us the differences between a Piscean Teacher (our rigid Professor) and an Aquarian Teacher (our soul-centered Shaman):

 How the Teacher relates to the Student

PISCEAN TEACHER                                                AQUARIAN TEACHER                         

Maintain the Status Quo Change the Status Quo
Ultimate Authority in the Universe  Does not want to be Authority Figure
Teacher believes once they have done it one time, they have mastered it, and then they know it all  Teacher believes that the more they learn, the less they know, and the more they want to learn from the subject
Establishes Dominant/Subservient relationship with Student Establishes an equal relationship with Student
One-way street of Dialogue that says, “Learn from me” Two-way street of Dialogue that says, “I might learn from the Student today”
Learn the Hard Way Let’s have Fun!
“Do what I say, not what I do” “I must walk my talk”
Sets Impossible standards for the Student In touch with Reality and sets Realistic Goals with baby steps for the Student
Teacher must convince the Student that as a Teacher, he/she has arrived at perfectionism Teacher stays open and vulnerable to show their imperfections
“Perfectionism Destination” – emulate me “Processing never ends” – continue to grow
Not natural and easy in delivery of message Natural and easy in delivery of message

Many of us have grown up under PISCEAN Age teachers. So while our hearts are moved to teach like an AQUARIAN teacher, we may find our habits influenced by the former.

Open Your Heart and Your Mind

Brook was clear that as an AQUARIAN teacher, you are holding the student’s hand for a temporary time – the Shaman walking beside the student – while you are modeling a new way of Being for the student. As the teacher, you are constantly learning as well. By being honest and authentic about your own journey, you transmit more honor and respect to the student about their own path choices.

I sincerely hope the chart assists you in reviewing where you excel and where you can open and deepen your teaching work. And I thank you, each of you who are choosing to be grounded, strong, and work in the Divine Light – thank you for choosing THIS TIME to teach and bring about compassion, understanding, and healing.

Many blessings to Brook Jasmyn, who has transitioned from this planet, for passing on this important message to Light Healers and Teachers.

Blessings, Robin
