The ego is an identity that we have created based on experiences, thoughts and ideas we have formed. It is the thing we describe when someone asks us about ourselves. However, it is a false identity covering our true center – our Soul Self.
The ego is built upon past experiences. Its very foundation is steeped in emotional actions and reactions, and is comprised of beliefs about our self. Some of these beliefs we have accepted, while others are rejected. We have been forming and sculpting this false self since early childhood.
If we listed our beliefs about who we think we are, we would have the structure of the ego. The ego is our personality, achievements and abilities – or lack thereof. Although these achievements, abilities and gifts appear to be a part of the ‘self’ they are only characteristics of our personality – they are not our True Self. The ego is a construct of the mind. It is the false or artificial self. Read the rest of this entry »
In the case of soul retrieval we are finding an aspect of self and returning it back. Soul rescue refers to being of service to a spirit or soul that is temporarily lost, or needs guidance to continue its journey in non-ordinary reality, in the realm of Spirit, having left the physical plane.
In the shamanic community there is a technique known as soul retrieval which represents the fragmented self. The fragmented self is a part of us that becomes temporarily ‘disconnected’ from our etheric soul, from the context of associative memories of a time in our life. Read the rest of this entry »
This week we would like you to focus your energy on turning inward and caring for yourself. With the last 999 portal opening recently, there has been another intense release of emotions and drama, allowing for a beautiful healing for all the planet.
You may still feel a little battered and worn-torn as the shadows of the recent retrograde has been slowing and pull away, and you stand fully planted on the ground in your power. Read the rest of this entry »
Yesterday is history, tomorrow a mystery, today a gift from Spirit. That is why it is called ‘the present.’ The present is indeed a gift – one that is often ignored. At any given moment we can become miserable. Life is a constant series of choices and decisions. We decide what we want to pay attention to, and what we let go.
This can be a dangerous path. If you are in denial; unconsciously running away from your feelings; living in a fantasy world; using unrealistic thinking; or abuse drugs or alcohol; you can indeed ignore reality and red flags.
There is a balance. We live in the world, but we do not control it. A wonderful saying from the Twelve-Step Program is, “Do the footwork, let go of the results.” One can add to that… ‘don’t forget to smell the roses.’ Read the rest of this entry »
I remember when first I came into contact with Apache Tears, a kind of Obsidian, when I was just a child. I loved it! Its translucent quality was captivating. At the time I did not know the metaphysical properties of this stone; all I knew was that it had a dream-like quality to it.
Obsidian is molten lava that has cooled very quickly. It is a type of volcanic glass and it is found worldwide. The ancient Aztecs made flat mirrors from Obsidian for use in divination. Obsidian may open a person to the gift of prophecy. Legend has it that Dr. Dee, a great mage and alchemist, hired by Queen Elizabeth I, may have used an Obsidian mirror in lessons of scrying.

We all have our innate strengths and weaknesses. Hopefully, we are all leveraging our greatest innate talents, and addressing our innate weaknesses. But what about the concept of the self-fulfilling prophecy?
Quite simply, this is the idea that the energetic interaction between beliefs, thoughts, and the higher self, can cause something unwanted to manifest. By constantly resonating a pattern, can we actually cause it to come into existence. Herein lies a great opportunity, or potential curse.
Astrology clients sometimes ask me about free will. They ask whether free will even exists, since the planets influence everything in our lives and their movements are completely pre-programmed and predictable. Well, in my opinion, based upon my studies, research, work and personal experiences, you absolutely cannot change the energies that will unfold and predictably express themselves at certain times throughout your life path.

We all like to be perceived as a nice person, and it can go very much against the grain if we were to be seen as otherwise! Therefore, should we have an argument with a dear friend or colleague, and as a result take on board blame for something we are actually not responsible for, we immediately start to feel unhappy.
Spirit teaches that while it is most necessary to acknowledge any actions we have made, or any part we have played in an argument, guilt can but only exaggerate any feelings of remorse! Furthermore, when we allow guilt, for whatever reason, to build up within ourselves, we may even take on board the idea that we are a ‘bad person’ and do not, therefore, deserve the best in life.

One of the hardest things that we will ever have to do is recover from a broken heart after a relationship break-up. We don’t want to be without the person we love; it hurts to say their name, or to think about them. And sometimes it is hard to even breathe.
When a relationship fails we need to go and heal. This is a time to be around people who care about us. The worst thing that we can do is to harden our hearts, and build a wall that no one can touch. All that this will do, is stop us from growing and learning more about ourselves – to know who we are and learning how to love ourselves again.
We are not to give up on future relationships, that will not serve us in the long run. We need to be able to feel again, but it takes time. Everyone has to go through their own grieving process, because no one really knows just how much you are really hurting. With time you will get there. Read the rest of this entry »
