Life Mentor and Motivator
IFS and Psychoshamanic Practitioner
I am glad you are here. A bit about myself and why I decided to do what I am doing now. Aion Farvahar is my Spiritual Pen Name. Both Aion and Farvahar had special meaning to me in my awakening journey. I am honoring them together as my name here. Before destiny brings me here, I had a productive career in large companies working in highly analytical roles. That was a natural career path because I had a PhD in a technical field. In my personal life, I was an introvert, enjoying a sense of serenity and connection to my soul and life energy in all beings around me. They helped me feel alive. I never felt alone.
I also had difficult periods in life, periods of existential crisis, anxiety, and depression. But somehow, I always trusted my intuition as if it was coming from a source higher than my own conscious self. My intuitions always turned out to be right, specially in my weakest points in life, when I was most vulnerable and tuned in to them. I know from experience how hard it can be for our rational minds to trust our intuition, specially when we have been weakened by ordeals of life. But, that is probably when such trust is most needed.
You may now ask what brought me here, writing this passage and why? Philosophically, I believe we humans are here for a reason. We are here to live with a sense of purpose and meaning, and above all, we are here to bring our gift to the world. I spent many contemplative years searching for the purpose and meaning of my life. I found my way to here, because I believe life to have a far deeper and sacred meaning, beyond what our rational minds want us to accept. And, I am motivated to do what I am doing now, because of my respect for those who are on a mission to discover it.
To find my way here, I have used different approaches as guidance, and am now offering these to my clients. I have been practicing Ontological Analysis and Imagination for nearly two decades. I am also trained in and practice Internal Family Systems (IFS) Self Leadership, a psychospiritual approach pioneered by Dr. Richard C. Schwartz. In more recent years, I have been studying and practicing Psychoshamanism under the guidance of my mentor, Dr. C. Michael Smith, who is a Jungian Psychologist and an International Author, Teacher, and Consultant in the Field of Shamanism. I received my Certification as a Psychoshamanic Practitioner from Crows Nest Center for Shamanic Studies.
Now, I want to say something about you. Something you should know and honor. You are reading this paragraph, not because you happened to be curious about what I do. You are here because of something you know, something you may not be fully appreciating yet, but it is there. That is an inner call guiding you here, a spark of insight trying to inspire you, pull you out of your ordinary life into higher grounds of consciousness. You are meant to be here and read this, because you are summoned to find and honor your higher purpose in life, your heart-path. How and when you get there is not important. What matters is that you know of and keep that spark of insight alive in you. The spark is not in your mind, it is deeper in your subconscious, an invitation from your soul. It wants you to shed negativity and fear, have courage to discover who you are, and what you are here for. It emerges from your inner world to guide you to higher grounds. If you answer its call, you heal, grow, and approach wholeness. If you chose to ignore it, it will still stay inside you as an unfulfilled destiny, like a caterpillar not experiencing its magical metamorphosis to a butterfly.
An Ideal World
A few among us are meant to be idealists. You and I maybe two of many. Idealists are not like realists settling for the status quo. They see the world not as “What It Is”, but rather as “What It Could Be”. Because of that, an idealist does not accept “Who People Are” and always look to see “Who People Are Destined to Be”. This perspective has been a significant force behind human evolution, and more importantly, the rise of our consciousness over time.
To me, an ideal world is a world, in which all living beings have the opportunity to become who they are meant to be. Trees to grow tall and experience seasons, animals to move freely and grow, and above all, us humans to find the true meaning of our lives, and the purpose of our existence.
I know this world may sound unrealistic and utopic to imagine, but if we don’t believe in it, how can we ever be motivated to take the first step toward it simply by honoring our own path and purpose in life. The good news is that everything we need to honor this path is already inside us. The magical power of our soul is waiting to guide us. Through our challenges, we grow further and become wiser. Through our failures, we learn and become humble. Through our mistakes, we repent and become considerate. Through our loneliness, we discover our higher Self. Through our love, we become free.
