Are you Feeling Alone and Abandoned?

Reading Time: 3 minutes Story Alchemy Are you Feeling Alone and Abandoned? One of the complains that I have been hearing from your feedback is the feeling that you are alone and unsupported. There is a sense of isolation ~even when you are surrounded by people. This is debilitating and makes you feel abandoned just when you need more support than ever. This feeling if often masked by the excitement of festivities, but just about now, as you come down from the Holiday high, it is making you feel tired, weighed-down and even more alone than ever. I’ve been there. I know that it is of little consolation to know that you are not alone in your aloneness, but today I offer you something more than sympathy or empathy. I invite you into a journey of Story Alchemy, a path of storytelling that empowers you to shift from that aloneness into alignment with your beautiful, radiant Sacred Self. If you have not read about Story Alchemy before, here it is in a nutshell: Humans explain our world and our role in that world through [Read more.]

Happy All Hallows Eve

Reading Time: 3 minutes  Happy All Hallows Eve! Tonight I’ll be chatting with my dearly departed and we’ll have a banquet. The veil is thinning and I am looking forward to a good family gathering with my dear departed. This All Hallows Eve for me will be a musical evening, playing my drum and marimba, listening, praying and playing. I want to make it a celebration of our infinite joy and wonder. Let your heart guide you. Let your dreams guide you. What is in your heart or dreams lately? What do you want to do? What is your intuition telling you? This is the best way to connect to the dead and be a bridge between the living and the dead in a way that allows healing, karmic cleansing and spiritual evolution. How do you do an altar for the Dead? I’ll make an altar for the dead in a small table I reserve for seasonal altars. I’ll cover it with a very bright fabric. Besides it I will hang a large skeleton I keep for this celebration, and I’ll dress it in [Read more.]

Facing a long-term problem? You may be Walking your Sacred Road!

Reading Time: 4 minutes Facing a long-term problem? You may be Walking your Sacred Road? Shamans examine a person’s circumstances as either or all of three things: a Sacred Mirror, a Worthy Opponent or a Sacred Road.  I have introduced the Sacred Mirrors in this article and I have shared a shamanic story that illustrates the Worthy Opponent. Today I am going to talk about the Sacred Road. This is not an easy thing to do today because I am grieving for a being who has lighted the world like few others, and who has gone off his Sacred Road this week, leaving a huge gap in our hearts. I am grieving for the actor, comedian and human being extraordinaire Robin Williams. Read my prayer for him here. A Sacred Road is a path to your Personal Freedom that you are designed to travel for a while —probably a long while— in order to master the lessons you came here to embody and teach. A Sacred Road can be a sickness or accident, a divorce or bankruptcy; a situation that takes you a while [Read more.]

Event: Shapeshift into your Dream

Reading Time: 5 minutes Shapeshift into your Dream is a shamanic journey to reclaim your Shapeshifting abilities and use this power consciously to embody your purpose and become your dream now. “My shapeshifting abilities?” you may be asking yourself. “I don’t know how to shapeshift!” I beg to disagree. You, like most of us, are a consummate shapeshifter. You, the shapeshifter You are not the same in every situation. You do not behave in the same way with everyone. Think about it. Who are you when you are with your parents? With your spouse? Your boss? Your children? These are different aspects of your personality, sure. But do you realize that in each of these situations you change: Your voice Your posture and physical stance, even the shape of your body may change Your perspective Your level of confidence Your communication approach and proficiency I have seen changes in people that you would find hard to believe, but with keen observation and detaching from the collective trance, you may also see what I constantly see: People suddenly changing their: Eye color Hair Texture Stature [Read more.]
