Before I start putting anything down about this, understand that this is speculations and theories only. THIS IS YOUR WARNING!!! SPECULATIONS ONLY. Also I may be interpreting this completely wrong, so don’t take this as above 65% accurate, even if it is.
Now on to spiritual rebirths.
A spiritual rebirth is a common shamanistic practice that helps detach you from this world and solidify your role as shaman. But little is said about what changes actually happen to the soul. Maybe this is different for each person( which it probably is) but I believe that three things might happen. Form Changing, power change, and revelations.
The first is that of Form Changing. Before this happens you may look, or emanate, to something that you value. But after the rebirth your form might change. example, someone who valued a lion for being strong and a ruling body may change into a falcon or more active hunter. Their previous form doesn’t go away entirely and in fact some may feel like a fusion of the two. In this example, they would feel like a Griphon.
That being said, this can also happen naturally through maturity and natural changes in the person’s mind and may just be an added effect of the spiritual rebirth, rather than being tied directly to it.
The second is power change. Power in this sense isn’t just physical or spiritual power, but also how you use your powers. Someone who is fire based might find themselves moving on to earth based. Someone who values brute strength might find more comfort in being more swift.
Like form changes, this can happen naturally and might be an added effect than being a direct effect.
These two, I believe, are just added effects that come from a change in someone’s mind. Being that a spiritual rebirth causes just that, being spiritually reborn may just be one in a long list of things that could create such effects.
The third is revelations. This IS different for everyone. Revelations will show hidden truths about your world. I use this phrase because everyone experiences the world differently. It is possible to have Revelations without being spiritually reborn. That being said, a Spiritual Rebirth causes the greatest changes in your world. At least, i believe it does. Things that may be revealed are about your soul, your purpose, or even something that seems small but keeps the world turning.
This is all I have speculated about spiritual rebirths. The only other thing that I can speculate is that, even though you are going through these changes, you still keep a little of your past spiritual life. Sometimes maybe a lot of it. I do not believe that you would loose anything that is helpful during this process, more just have the rest changed.
Like every think I post, this is heavy stuff and should not be treated lightly. I ask that you explore all options before you say for sure what is what to you. Until next time. Travel safely friends.
