One of the quaintest concepts, that seemed to captivate imaginations around the turn of the 18th century, were the elements and their embodiments in the form of Elemental Spirits. These beings were the personification of the Classical elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire.
In the Middle Ages, great attention was given to these four elements in terms of diagnosis, such as the Choleric being linked to the Earth, which would be thus be linked to Taurus. The Phlegmatic was linked to the water element, or Pisces, which often would diagnose lung disorders, thus the word origin for phlegm. Read the rest of this entry »
Each and every night, as we go into a sleep state, and every single time we are in a meditative state, lucid or otherwise, we are actually on the Other Side. The power of the mind does not exist only on this earthly plane. We are in realty multidimensional and once we get a grasp on how all this works it can be exciting. We can also learn how to maneuver this phenomenon to greatly enhance any aspect of our existence.
Did you ever take the wrong set of stairs, or got off on the wrong floor? Becoming aware of the Other Side is like going into a gigantic building for the first time. How daunting is that! Although you might know which office you are heading for, you may not know exactly which direction to take. There may be a list of office number on the board, showing exactly who or what is on each floor. But you may not be fully aware of what each service was, or if you do know what each person was qualified to do, you may still not understand the meaning behind each set of professional qualifications.

Where do we go to after this lifetime? This is a fundamental question many of us would like to have answered by spirit. I asked this for myself some time ago and found out that when I leave this plane some day, I will be going to a place called “Sanatch.” No other information was forthcoming, so I have no idea where that is, or what it is I will be doing there.
I was also able to see where some of the people in my life will be heading to next. Some have meanwhile departed and are now entrenched into their new existence.
My sister, Alfreda, went to work at the tender age of 15, which was typical in the early 50’s. She worked for a large jewelry store called Burk’s, which is still in existence today. As a part of her duties she would go to different floors of the store using the elevator system. On one such an excursion Alfreda met a good-looking, and very friendly young man named Andre, and as they say the rest was history. Read the rest of this entry »
In recent years there has been an avid interest in shamanism. A myriad of books, seminars and extensive training programs around the world reveal a keen exploration of indigenous cultures and their connection with Nature, their healing techniques (such as soul retrieval) and the role of power animals or totems.
Shamanism, in its classical sense, comes from the regions of Siberia and Central Asia and the term ‘shaman’ originates from the Tungusic word saman (masculine) or samana (feminine). The term shaman has been interchanged with ‘medicine man’, ‘sorcerer’, and ‘magician’ – but a shaman is so much more. The shaman is traditionally a central figure in the community: mystic, poet, healer, communicator with the unseen realm and psychopomp (leader of souls). Read the rest of this entry »
Beyond this world there are several other planes of existence. After this life the third and fourth planes of existence is where most of us end up. This is a world that is made up of thought forms; it is built by astral substance, by our own minds. We create our own cities, and personal dwellings.
As we rise up, after the leaving our fleshly, earthly bodies at the end of this lifetime, we start to work out our desires and aspirations. We focus more on those personal tendencies and tastes we were unable to fulfill while living on Earth. This is where the majority of us will end up, living out the rest of our earthly lives, outside of the human bodies that we last vacated. Read the rest of this entry »
What happens to the soul after the body dies? There are many explanations, the most common being that the soul moves on to another place and another life. Past life readings and regressions have been able to prove that we do indeed live many lifetimes.
But where does the soul really go right after death? Ghosts of the departed have been seen in many forms, such as images, scents, sounds and full apparitions. How long do they linger on this earth before making a transition? That too has many theories attached to it. The Ancient Egyptians however had a very well defined belief in what happened to the soul after death. The soul contained in the physical body possessed many aspects that all had different spiritual duties. Read the rest of this entry »
For many years I suffered with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and sought out treatment for it with traditional counseling. Although helpful, it seemed to take quite a long time to unravel and change the symptoms. I suffered with anxiety, sleep deprivation and depression for several years.
One day through work, I met a woman who was trained as a Lakota-Sioux medicine woman. Her name was Irene and she was also a Reiki Master who could do distance healing. She taught classes in Shamanism, as well as Reiki. Curious, I began to take her classes and learn about Shamanism. Eventually, I would also seek treatment for the PTSD from her and have many remarkable experiences. Read the rest of this entry »
The astral world, in all reality, is not somewhere “out there.” It is right around us all of the time. People ask, where do we go after death? I believe we stay right here where we are; our soul, or spirit (I like thinking of our spirit as being pure mind, energy, consciousness) merely transitions to a higher realm of existence in this world.
There are seven basic bands of energy, which we call “astral,” that surrounds the earth reality. The first band is earth itself, or the physical plane. This is our current world where we are living in our physical bodies, having our human experience.
The second band is the lowest of the astral world. The third band is the intermediate of the astral world, and the fourth band is the highest of the astral planes. I think most of humanity, ends up living on the third and fourth bands for a while. Read the rest of this entry »
