This is a topic worthy of an in-depth look, I say this, as John is looking on, out of respect for his body of work, and also from an understanding regarding his connection to Spirit.  Presenting this information in a way that is both anatomically correct, energetically true, and physiologically relevant is a craft in its own right.  The movements of a person's body through space and time, including their personal power and its source, can take a lifetime to refine and apply in such a way as to remain effortless in its application and understanding. In this case, we have the same cougar within us.  The same being that unites us, on a cellular level, is the same being that connects us in this waking reality.  In 2003, when I asked the Universe for direct intervention, a cougar appeared.  The young cougar, while chained to the ground, needed tended to, and released from bondage.  The older, served as a guide, while on the trail of life.  From this experience, the entire aspect of ...
This is a respin for Michael Harner's Foundation for Shamanic Studies .  Michael passed into Spirit in 2018, although we still respect his work, and the treasure trove he provided his Western audience.  Shamanism varies from culture to culture and what Michael, his family, his friends, and his life's work have done for us is beyond immeasurable.  Moving from an intellectual understanding of what could be construed as a spiritual abstract, and into a more thorough, and energetic, understanding of what actually happens in the many dimensions of our multi-tiered afterlife, is but one aspect of what we've been called to do.  Working with Spirit while learning how to bring about change, beginning on a cellular level first, is a transformative art.  It will change your life and how you see this world of ours. ...
Subtle energies and psychic awareness are oft misunderstood. Not only are we dealing with external phenomena, that is objectifiable sense experience, we are also dealing with an inundation of somatic awareness on a non-perceptible level.  Of course, working within our scope of practice is always important as we’re also communicating what is being channeled through the work of Spirit, and balancing these messages with our clients’ stated therapeutic goals. Craniosacral work is the type of alternative therapy that includes subtle levels of awareness, a still point that exists within the bony structure of the human body, and one that also exists within the meditative state of the client-practitioner relationship.  To receive this type of bodywork on a regular, or semi-regular basis, is especially helpful for those of you that have experienced a spiritual awakening, on even the most subtle of levels, and for those of you that are new to bodywork, as well.  The levels of intuitiveness a...
The Sound of Things to Come In the last post, one of the things I mentioned was the use of the word phonetic.  There was some confusion amongst the audience as to what that actually means, and how we would apply that to both our inner guidance and the task at hand.  As some of you may know, one of the mirrors that we work with is the Sacred Syllable .  This web-based mirror helps not only clarify the messages coming to us from Spirit, but also clarifies our listening abilities with what we perceive on the web. The word phonetic in the previous post is being used as a reminder to listen, as we process what we perceive both energetically, and physically, with the clients at hand.  Of course, not everyone is attuned to their inner landscape in such a way, not everyone is going to get this, but we live in a state of the soft gaze, a loosening of the brow, a lightening of the flesh in such a way as to allow our non-physical allies and teachers to guide us in ways that remain sacred. ...
A long time ago, I had a great fall.  It hurt like something I had never dreamt before.  Little did I know what I was searching for all along, was me.  A cat.  For a long time, I thought it was a dog, but it is, indeed, a cat.  A beautiful cat with four legs, a wagging tail, and a certain type of silence that penetrates the mysterious veil of thunder. I didn’t see it coming but, rather, had dreamt it into being.  It took just over three years of choices to manifest into this reality, the reality we share in this conscious state, and consisted of three years of dreaming, three years of walking, and ultimately three years of waking up, and letting go, into this hazy, downward spiral of mine.  It hurt like hell because I didn’t realize that it was John that I had been searching for. We had been conversing internally since childhood and what I learned with time, and with attendance in a class of his, is that he and I remain connected in such ways as to challenge a person's percep...
