Shamanic thoughts on COVID-19

This next week I’m teaching a workshop on emotions and physical ailments, and I started looking at the COVID-19 outbreak and what it means from a shamanic perspective. Thought I would share. You are a spiritual being having a human experience. Everything is a hologram, generated by your inner processes. Physical ailments are clues to…

Getting what you want from Mercury Retrograde (part 1)

We are in the shadow of yet another Mercury Retrograde. Rather than rehash the same information again (you can get that here), I thought I’d talk about some of the possibilities. People always seem to focus on how Mercury gets in their way, and less on actually getting what the want from Mercury Retrograde. I…

Passing through folds in the heliospheric current

Did you feel a drop in your energy on January 6th, starting around 19:30UTC (11:30am Pacific)? SpaceWeather says we may have passed through a fold in the heliospheric current sheet, a giant, wavy membrane of electrical current rippling through the solar system: Yesterday, Jan. 6th, something unexpected happened in the soil of northern Norway. “Electrical…

Separating Fact From Fiction

The most useful thing that meditation gives us is the ability to separate fact from fiction. When we don’t have a regular (read: daily) practice of some sort of mindfulness, we take the stories our mind tells us as fact. I wrote about this extensively at the end of October.

Forecast: Looking Ahead to 2020 part 2 – Numerology

Let me tell you about the Negative Ego

What some people call brain is more accurately “mind”. In Buddhist terms, it is the monkey mind. In Western Mystery Tradition it frequently gets labeled as the Negative Ego. In Twelve Step programs, they just call it ego, but that term is confusing, because Freud. The Negative Ego is that part of the Self that, when sabre…

There is more than one way to bear fruit

This year, in my Full Moon Women’s Circle, we have been working with the information from Lasara Firefox Allen’s book, Jailbreaking the Goddess. In it, she encourages us to look beyond biology so that we can rehumanize women in our society. As long as women are defined by their “usefulness” to society (through childbearing and…
