Dreams tell the hidden truth and help us to understand ourselves. Shamans and mystics believe that there are basically three types of dreams.
Lower world dreams connect us with our instincts. We see these dreams in archetypal symbols, myths, colors, nature, gods, goddesses, animas, elementals and mythical beasts and characters. There are secrets hidden in these symbols. Archetypes are also present in everyday objects such as cars, or clothes.
Middle world dreams are where we work out emotional issues in our daily lives. We dream about ourselves at work, play, and where we live. We dream of our relationships, our crushes, old flames, our family. Read the rest of this entry »
Perfection. When we are a ball of light on the Other Side, there is only one kind of perfection. But here on Earth, fluidity of movement, acceptance, surrender, flowing into change… this is perfection. Earth perfection is the ability to fully embrace, love, laugh at, and survive the roller-coaster ride we chose before we came here.
Many healers and therapists sell themselves, in part, by projecting a public image… and sadly, many of their followers are mostly attracted to only that image. Why is that? Perhaps the idea of having an ‘ideal’ allows people to kind of let themselves off the hook, by declaring, “Well, I can never be perfect like her!” Or maybe we just like the idea that somehow our idea of perfection really does exist.

From the darkest places comes the brightest of light…” When I first read this statement on a piece of community art, on display at a Yoga festival, I was astounded. I stood still, with my Yoga mat strung over my shoulder, my water bottle in hand, and a plethora of memories racing through my mind.
That moment instantly brought back my traumatic, abusive childhood, and destructive youth. I had come from some very dark places, until I ended up morbidly obese, depressed and suicidal at 30 years of age. I had to change my life and slowly I began to choose what I sensed was good for me.

Several years ago I was gifted my spirit name, Soaring Free, by one of my personal spirit guides of Native American decent. I have been reflecting on this for the past few weeks, as I am entering a new phase of my spirituality and higher consciousness.
Back In 2004, I had crossed a personal line in my life where self-esteem, confidence, happiness and self-love were basically non-existent. When I speak to my clients about the struggles or confusion they face on their life path and spiritual journey, or in their careers or relationships, I completely understand. I have been there myself, and I have experienced more than most. Fortunately, I have been able to overcome those challenges and I now know that anyone can overcome adversity.

Today’s August Full Moon is traditionally known by many names in different cultures. The Native Americans call it the Sturgeon Moon or Green Corn Moon, and some tribes also know it as the Red Moon.
In the Northern Hemisphere the August moon signifies that Earth’s bounty is fully matured and ready for harvest. Wiccans and Neo-Pagans therefore often refer to it as the Wort Moon. Wort is an old-fashioned term for “plant” or “herb.”
My favorite Moon legend is the story “Moon Waters” which originates from Colombia.
Many, many years ago there lived a man named Bochica who was highly honored among his people. Bochica was a very wise man and taught his people how to build sturdy homes to protect them from harsh weather, and how to plant fields and nurture them, so they would be able to reap the crops to sustain them until the next harvest.

Carnelian is a part of the Agate family and a form of Chalcedony, the gemological term used for all types of quartz in cryptocrystalline form. It can be red, orange, and red-brown and has both the properties of Agate and Chalcedony.
Agate is effective in balancing the yin and yang energies. It stabilizes the aura and gives a cleansing effect. It transforms and eliminates negativity. Agate further increases analytical abilities and precision and awakens natural talents. It creates inspiration from, and connection with entities in the spirit world.
Chalcedony is part of the quartz family. It is traditionally used as a sacred stone by Native Americans and is good in balancing energies of mind, body, emotions and spirit. Chalcedony represents good will, while decreasing hostility, sadness, or depression. It also increases receptivity, responsiveness, and giving. Read the rest of this entry »
Are you interested in using crystals and gemstones in your magical workings? There are hundreds of stones to choose from, but which ones you choose will ultimately depend on your intent. Always select crystals and gemstones for use based upon their attributes, and you won’t go wrong.
I love to use amethyst. It is my birthstone and is also the 6th anniversary stone. Amethyst is a form of quartz crystal, and appears in a wide range of purple and violet colors. My favorite color is the deep purple variety.
Amethyst is associated with the element of water, and it is also connected to the water signs of Pisces and Aquarius. One can use amethyst in healing rituals related to treating depression or anxiety, mood disorders, and to relieve stress. Read the rest of this entry »
Psychometry is a method of divination in which the psychic or medium reads the energy vibration of objects and divining from it visions or impressions associated with the object. These impressions are individual to the psychometrist or clairtangent psychic, who may either see, feel, hear, or taste according to their own psychic gift.
Often when a psychic is consulted in a missing person’s case a piece of clothing or personal belonging of the person is presented to them. This often proves helpful in the investigation. Jewelry, especially those made of conducting metals like gold, silver or copper, are the easiest for the psychometrist to read, because it has been close to the wearer. Read the rest of this entry »
