Can we Magically Change Ourselves and our World? Miraculous Possibilities Accessed when we Change Consciousness


This past September, I facilitated a 3-day Advanced Healers Program retreat in the Methow Valley.  We enjoyed fun community, spiritual breakthroughs and the delicious energy and beauty of Momma Nature.  We also spent one of the mornings providing outdoor service to a couple of families who had been hard-hit by fire and flood this past summer.

On this trip I had an intense conversation with Madeline, she has less doubt than I do, more faith that we Are spirit in bodies, playing and creating in this world. 
I still struggle with my intellect, in some ways... although so much less than I used to! 
We went back and forth, in a friendly and respectful way about this reality, about how 'fixed' it is, how out-of-the-box miracles can be.

Some background:
I finally succumbed to psychic (soul) training after a many years-long chronic illness. It wasn't my first-choice, it was a spiritual imperative. Basically, I finally realized, after much suffering, that I had a choice: staying in my current consciousness and enduring a long, painful death OR being willing to shift my consciousness through psychic (soul) training.
I am stubborn, it took me many years to choose to shift through soul training, but I did choose life, and I did change ; ) 

I entered Psychic training with a vengeance, unstoppable to heal myself and assist others to heal, as well.  But, I had to manage my formidable intellectualizing, my natural body-doubt of all things anti-intellectual, anti-material.
And if there is one thing that is the opposite of the intellect (opposite of all the body defaults:  feelings, survival impulses, control games, etc) it is psychic (soul) training  - in which we learn to embrace the soul senses, our spiritual information and abilities.

HOW was I gonna do soul-training while my BodyMind was SO in-charge? 
I am a schemer, so I made a structure of separation and worked within that structure for a dozen years.
It went something like this: Because:
- Spirit is spirit, and physical is physical - and never can the two fully understand each other.
- Spirit is known by spiritual senses, not body senses; and vice-versa.
- Spirit cannot by measured, quantified, proven/dis-proven by physical means, by science.

Therefore (this is where I went awry): 
- All miracles (when things go differently than average/generally expected) have spiritual reasons as well as physical reasons behind them.
- Scientific laws always stay in effect.
- Even when crazy-amazing stuff happens, materialistic cause-and-effect is always in effect!

This system of limitation, based on the separation of body/spirit 'worked' for me. 
In the beginning it was necessary.
But, I believe in the long-run it has gotten in the way of opening to fast, easy, miraculous personal healing for myself and in assisting others.

I can see more and more clearly that:
- I am great with healing Process.  Amazing shifts within, with incremental shifts externally.
- I am less-great with wildly magical healing, mind-bending leaps, immediately manifest in the physical.

So, on our Methow service adventure, I talked to Madeline about this, I heard her say my scientific perspective was limiting, and agreed. But, her unreasonable faith in the malleability of this reality was not enrolling for me - just as so many other's perspectives before hers didn't shake me. 
Under all the spiritual veneer, I was a materialist; and as much as I wanted to open to an irrational leap - I could not, would not. 

But, in some new way, the gauntlet had been thrown-down.
Something had to change.
I just didn't know what, or how.

Some background:
I admire folks with a lot of faith/spiritual certainty, but their experience isn't my expereince. I need my own spiritual expereince, to grok fully for myself.  It is a pain in the neck to have so much doubt, so much stubbornness. I am like doubting Thomas:
24 Now Thomas... one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!”
But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”  - John 20
I need to expereince for myself.  This isn't all bad.
Check out the end of the Thomas story:
26 A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”  - John 20
This reminds me of the conclusion of the Job saga:
great blessing that is worth the dramatic roller-coaster, IMO:
      5“I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear;
            But now my eye sees You  - Job 42

So, anyway... About a month went by, after my conversation with Madeline about the malleability of this reality.  Then, I read a chapter called 'don Juan and Jesus' by Joseph Chilton Pearce - and boom!
What he said made Sense to me, it was like I read it AND revelation came.  And I shifted around this issue - spiritually, the shift happened fast and immediately - more slowly on a soul-level (where body and spirit dance, where rubber hits road)
Meanwhile, it is slowly integrating for the last 2 months.
And as I look back, A LOT has shifted in two months - hmmm.

The timing of all this is very interesting. I'd had the book on my bookshelf for 5+ years.  I'd bought it on a whim, when a local used bookstore closed and I filled a brown bag full of some of their last dregs books for $10. Then I had started actually reading it about a year or so ago.
It lived by my bed, and I would read it intermittently between library books and sci-fi/fantasy novels.  The book is Seeing Castaneda: Reactions to the "Don Juan" Writings of Carlos Castaneda, editor Daniel Noel.  Honestly, the book did very little for me, I rarely enjoyed it and got little insight from it. Each new time I picked it up, I wondered: Why am I reading this book?
But, I am all about inertia, so I kept reading - it wasn't until the book was almost over that I had my boom-moment ; )

I have no idea if reading the 'don Juan and Jesus' chapter will do anything for you.  I don't necessarily agree with all he says, but it was very useful for me, nonetheless.
I believe, when we have ears to hear / eyes to see spiritually, we can get revelation from reading a cereal box.
Meanwhile, it turns out the Original book:  The Crack in the Cosmic Egg: New Constructs of Mind and Reality, containing this chapter (9), page 153, is available free at this link - in case you are interested. An the reused book (as well as others by Pearce) are available inexpensively online - I am ingesting and integrating his books slowly over time (eating the fruit, spitting out the pits ; )

I am just starting to grok just how much we can Magically Change Ourselves and our World: 
Thanks for reading my story about the most miraculous change of all:
changing consciousness.

When we have a shift in consciousness, we can perceive and create something new - magically manifesting / attracting / co-creating a different experience:  other possibilities accessed through non-ordinary (not our usual expereince of) reality.
Fundamentally, we allow-in the blessing of a vibrational shift, and the song and dance of our lives (and all around us) shifts too.

I hope you enjoy your Magical Journey, wherever it leads!

Rock Your World with Master Jesus!

A few weeks ago, I got a call to a new focus in my ministry.
And then soon after, I had an opportunity to share this focus on a 1/2 hour radio show:

Rock Your World with Master Jesus!
Jesus Rocked his world, 2,000 years ago;
he ushered in a whole new vibration and a new paradigm of Divine Connection.

Jesus IS Light, Way, Truth, Life in his world,
and he calls US to Do the Same…in our own way.

Let's tune into Jesus spiritually: receive his wisdom and insights for us, and most importantly his spiritual frequency -
So we can ROCK our life, and our world, today!  LISTEN

If you want to hear more subjects, go here

Blessed Thanksgiving!

PS - If you are in alignment with this message, I have a new online series coming up - please join my e-newsletter to receive details.  First session is:
Align with your Source, with Master Jesus: Let the Light IN (Online Meditation Workshop)
In early January starts:
Ears to Hear, Eyes to See:  Soul Tools with Master Jesus (Online Meditation Class).

Lynn Brown Radio Show: 7 rules of Wealth to Thrive By

I am not on this program (although I was holding energy for it)
But I thought y'all might appreciate Lynn Brown's sharing.
Lynn and I are offering 2 workshops together in early 2015 - check them out!

November 18, 2014 - Co-host Lynn Brown - 1 hour

What's the big deal???....Money is only ONE form of Abundance and money is ONLY 1 form of abundance. And guess what? They are always intertwined! We all have limiting beliefs which we accumulate from our life experiences, ancestors, and past lives. These beliefs block our ability to receive the unlimited flow of abundance that the universe constantly offers to us.

Thursday, November 6, 2014

Do you want to let Blessings IN, but you don't know how?

Blessings of Amazing Abundance and Possibility are around us, all the time and everywhere.
But, many of us are not letting them in!
Most of us, aren't letting IN, all the blessings that we could .

What are the nuts and bolts of Allowing Blessings IN...
into our bodies, our lives, our world?

My belief and experience is:
we Be in the waterfall of these blessings from our Source.
The water, these blessings, get all over us, and every one and every thing near us... and into our dear earth.

If we stay in this flow, stay with this Goodness... our Source fills us Up - all the way UP!
Which takes some time for most of us, because most of us are SO empty!!
But then, when we are FULL, then as we stay in these blessings, they pour out of us continually... as we let our Source keep pouring them in and through us… as fruit of the spirit.

We really do live in a constant flow of Grace, Beauty, Gratefulness, Forgiveness, Mercy... as well as all the Fruit that Paul names in the Christian Bible (Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Gentleness, Humilty, Kindness, Self-Control {Seniority}, Faith) - and So Much More!!

WHEN we say YES to the flow, which our Source is always pouring on ALL of us -
At the Same Time, these blessings splash all over everyone we come in contact with!
The more flow we say YES to, the Bigger the flow, the More flow, the more everyone and everything is blessed!

Jesus lived in a Niagara of blessings,
and Everyone near him was transformed.
(unless they were a Big Fat Committed NO NO NO... wonderful, terrible Free Will ; )
…  Jesus showed them how to live this way then, and still he spiritually can show us how to live this way now!

I think it is interesting to note:
  • When we refuse this flow for ourselves, we can't really facilitate this flow for others... Actually, it is even more than that, when we refuse this flow for ourselves, we discourage this flow of blessings for others.
  • On the other hand, when we refuse this flow for others, we can't really have the flow of blessings in ourselves.

SO, for example:
This is why forgiveness is SO very important!
... If we limit goodness for our 'enemies', we limit it in ourselves. Period.

It is not that the Universe does not pour forgiveness on us without end, because it does. But, we can't really let it IN... unless it is a waterfall that splashes on everyone!

If we do not allow the blessing of forgiveness of others, we do not allow blessing of forgiveness in ourselves.
This helps me understand what Jesus said: If you do not forgive, you are not forgiven; if you do forgive, you are forgiven.

It is very important to note:
I am not saying we should TRY to forgive, or believe we forgive, or think about forgiving, or read books about forgiving, or do exercises about forgiving!
I am not saying we should beat ourselves up if we don't want to forgive!
I am not saying we should FEEL any different!

Feeling is body communication, and for most of us, our bodies have been though hell!
Our bodies should feel angry, sad, frustrated, UN-trusting, afraid... whatever they are.
We can meet our bodies where they are, love them, help them be safe, communicate with them, help them heal!!
We Must take care for our bodies!!

And meanwhile, what I am talking about is a spiritual choice - to say YES to God and the blessings of God.
I am speaking of spiritual experience of forgiveness.

Are you Ready for life to be EASIER? (secret:) You don't have to be GOOD (or bad!)

If we stop trying hard to be GOOD, look good, act good, do good...
we will run amok, our lives will go down-hill.
I let this LIE stop me, do you?

If we stop trying SO hard
to live up to some picture of what Good might be,
being some 'perfect' person living an 'ideal' life:
  • We will be 'in trouble' (even more!), 
  • Our lives will stop 'working' (even more!), 
  • People won't like us (even more!)
It is useful to write this down!
It sounds somewhat feasible in the semi-conscious action of my life,
but consciously, on 'paper' in the Light, the absurdity becomes more obvious!

Are you willing to let your life get messy now and then?

When I clean out my closet (which, admittedly, rarely happens)
But, when I do - my relatively neat room, becomes a complete mess... awash is stuff everywhere!
The, of course, I get rid of some stuff, reorganize, and the room and the closet become more organized.
My efficiency rises, ease rises, aesthetics rise... but only after they take a big dip!

Same with letting go of ACTING Good.
Sure, sometimes thing will get wonky for awhile,
like all real life, in a world of change: life, relationships sometimes get wonky.
This is just par for the course.

We can't Control the vicissitudes of life, of people...
And it makes us crazy to try!

Want to Accept Life more on its own terms? 

I know ALL is One, Light, Love, Whole... spiritually;
But in this World of Opposites, I get Hooked.
I want to Win, I want to be Popular, Loved, Chosen, Right, Successful...
So I try to be Good, or at least Seem Good, Act Good.

But attaching to Good, is just living a Lie.
Life occurs as Black and While, AND everything in between.
Life occurs as Up and Down, AND everything in between.
Life occurs as Good and Bad, AND everything in between.

Do you want to find more Balance?

When we have been holding ourselves SO far to the White for awhile,
it is a natural balancing behavior to go careening off to the Black,
but soon we find a comfortable equilibrium, if we stop holding on SO tight.

A lot of times when we are experiencing big swings,
or fighting to Sta WAY far Left or far Right...
intense complying and/or intense resisting certain realities or parts of ourself.
We get Mighty STUCK in imbalance.

We are Not any more Free in resistance than we are in compliance.
We are Not any more free when we are attached to Up; than when we are avoiding Up, and therefore we have to be Down.

Many times, we find ourselves back and forth along one thin line, with no real choice,
caught in a dichotomy when there is a world of choices out there,
if we could just Lettttt Goooooo...

Are you willing to do your spiritual work today? so you can Enjoy more Rest for the rest of your life?

There is Freedom available for us, spiritually - and this rest can then leak into our physical life.
Let's let go of the yoke of Bondage to Good, and the other Ideals we have a strangle-grip-on.
There is Rest available for our soul, while playing joyfully in this world.

Let us labor to enter that rest, do the spiritual work that only we can do:
  • Free ourselves from the dichotomies of this world,
  • Be ourselves, and 
  • Allow life to be SO Much Easier!

In your Life Experiment, WHY are you Getting Crappy Results?

Many years go, a friend I love and respect asked me something like this:
Why are you investing So heavily in the theory that
spiritual reality is real,
spiritual healing is possible,
spiritual transformation is the lever you need to shift your life?
At the time, the jury was still out. I had been sick and stuck for about a decade.
I had started investing in my current path, but the rewards hadn’t come yet - I had planted many seeds that hadn’t yet sprouted.
I believed that I was really on to something - and I was!
But very little was yet showing in the outside world.

So, I said to him - I am consciously making an experiment of my life:
  •   Is this spiritual stuff real or isn’t it?
  •   Does being who I AM and following my spiritual senses WORK or NOT?
  •   Is God REAL or not?
  •   Does following my unique spiritual path 'work'?  Does it ‘pay off’ or doesn’t it?
He said - this is a Big Gamble!
What if this doesn’t work out?
What if you are wrong?

I said - it is my life and this is how I choose to invest it
I believe it is worth a try!

And I am so grateful to report, since I started this experiment in earnest Autumn of 2002, it has actually worked-out swimmingly!

Most of us are not conscious that
ALL of us utilize our lives as experiments!

But most of us are not really clear on what we are testing and what results we really want.
We usually take some form of what parents, teachers, peers, authorities, religions, corporations, bankers, and marketers say - their beliefs, limits, expectations, shoulds
And we live THROUGH that - in compliance and/or resistance to this programming.

Sometimes as we get more mature, we get more conscious.
We mean to live through idea(s) of poets, writers, religious thought or doctrine,
or an Ideal like Love, Peace, Joy.
Or a targeted outcome - making a ‘good’ living, a ‘happy’ family life, being a ’nice’ or 'giving’ person

What are you testing?
What are your results?
DO you want an Easier way to get better Results?

How about this:

What would it mean for you to finally walk the path to COME HOME TO YOURSELF?
  •  BE with your body, your desires, your tastes, your delights
  •  Take back your own Free-WIll - own back your will from the education, socialization, ethics, religion, thought and expectations you have been marinating-in, releasing the programming we get packed with.
THEN from the Driver’s Seat of your body, your life, your soul - to really hear, see, touch, taste, smell, know your True Self and your Own Self.
  •  Not who you should BE, but who you ARE.
  •  Not what you should DO, but what your true expression IS.
  •  Not where you should GO, but your Natural Flowing, Shining, Service in the world.
What would that be like for you?
Wanna find out?

You can't be who you Really ARE, can you? (Yes! Come on in, the water's fine)

  • Are you holding the opposites within yourself  - BOTH this And that?
  • Do you wonder how you hold So Many voices, within yourself?
  • Do you hide the beauty and terror of your internal expereince, and instead opt to fit-in?
Me Too! 
  • Are you Leaving Out parts of who you are?
  • Do you cover-up parts of yourself with some folks, and other parts of yourself from other folks?
  • Are there choices you have made - are making - that you would rather no one see?
Me Too!
I am learning a new way - to be more integrated, authentic... I bet you are too!

It has taken a lifetime for me to learn, and I am still integrating:
  • I really can be spiritually a Mystic and intellectually an Agnostic.
  • I really can be Queer and love God.
  • I really can come from a Christian Foundation, and love the Earth and the Female Face(s) of the Divine.
  • I really can be a Leader and Teacher, as an Introvert.
  • I really can be a Healer, even though I have experienced much of my life as Broken.
  • I really can serve businesses, organizations, and individuals of all stripes as a Psychic - utilizing soul senses and abilities out in the World.

What are your challenges in being yourself?  holding your opposites?

I can not only LIVE my paradoxes, my dichotomies,
OWN back the lost parts of myself...
I can do it with JOY,
and I can do it in SERVICE.

Are you wanting this kind of thing for yourself?

I can BE all of myself here AND there.
I can talk Jesus with Pagans.
I can talk Soul with Agnostics.
I can talk Bisexuality and Polyamory with church ladies.

How are you practicing this in your life?

The more I do it, the easier it is, the better I am heard;
and the more my world shifts, integrates...

Owning all these parts of myself is actually a blessing, not just to me, but for everyone.
Finding wholeness matters.
Modeling wholeness matters.
Acting from our wholeness matters.

Do you want to make this kind of difference in the world?

I am in the continual process of owning and integrating these many disparate parts of myself,
parts of myself that I enjoy more or less, 
parts that are more or less acceptable, in our shared reality;
allowing myself to be myself, become myself in all my unique human beauty.

So are you!
All of us really CAN be who we ARE.
Let's play together, learn together, laugh together, grow together, inspire each other, open our world!

in life

Is Striving for Success leaving you Unfulfilled?

The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win, you're still a rat.
— commonly attributed to Lily Tomlin 
We can never be rich enough, powerful enough, beautiful enough
to make us feel happy and safe, to believe we are good enough...

Many of us feel empty, hollow, hungry...
like dogs at the track, running after a rabbit we can never catch.

And when we do get a bit of success, it is not long before we feel empty, hollow, hungry... again.
It is like eating candy bar for lunch, it does not satisfy our true needs.

This is because the way we are programmed around success in this culture is a Lie.
If we 'buy' all the information around what success IS and how we should go about it, we are unlikely to end up happy, fulfilled.
If we actually get anywhere near the goals this world set for us, we find out we have squandered our lives for fool's gold. 

The way to be happy,
to be truly successful,
to make a true difference in our world...

is not to follow the herd, not to play small (or to ACT big),
and certainly not to try to operate under all the lies we are told about who we are, what we should do & have, and how we should look, act & be.

The world doesn't need anymore widgets, any more cookie-cutter people.
The world needs YOU.
This is why you are here!
If you don't do what you are here to do, NO ONE CAN.

Being ourselves, aligning with our Source is True Success
... even though we have been programmed otherwise!

The secret to living fulfilled lives is to actually:
  • BE uniquely ourselves.
  • DO our unique calling/path/expression of us.
  • Shine our unique Light.

Sure fine, But HOW?

One of many ways to answer this:
Jesus outlined a relatively straightforward process:
If we want to be well-fed, well-dresses, well-taken-care-of... successful adults, then we:
seek ye first the reign of God and His righteousness, and all these shall be added to you.
- Matthew 6:33

Seek first the Kingdom (Reign) of Heaven = seek spiritual reality and operate from soul information, not from physical focus, pulls of the body/flesh and worldly rules, programming, expectations, and limits.

and God's Righteousness =
  - Listening to and Believing the Voice the Leading of Spirit in our lives (Abraham believed God and it was reckoned to him as righteousness).
  - BEING in right relationship with our Source, in alignment with Spirit, Light, Love, Truth, our spiritual information and our Path...

- and all the necessities of life come to us = we are fulfilled, our needs are met, we are free from striving and worry, to go love and to serve in the world!

This means:
- BEING who we Really Are = a child in the royal family, a spark of the Divine in this world.
- Aligning with Light Love Truth
- DOING what we are actually called to DO by the Living God, who did not get laryngitis 2,000 years ago!

This means:
- Going to your Source
- Finding out who you are
- Filling UP with Glory
- And the going out to DO what ONLY YOU CAN DO in the world.

This is success beyond imagining, it is wealth beyond the dreams of avarice.
And it is available to each and every one of us...
Let's GO!

Sure fine, But HOW?
Well, that is a matter of Soul Practice - be in touch for a workshop, class, or personal session.

Meanwhile, what Lies of Success do you want to release?
What Truths do you choose to embrace, to allow Your Fulfilled Life?

I would love to hear!

- Wendy

Do you believe Jesus can have Great Coaching on how to WIN the Game of Life?

We don’t have to WORRY about Life, Safety, Stuff…
All we need is right here for us.

When we follow our Spiritual Path, instead of the physical way imposed upon us, and driven within us:

When we Spiritually Die, then we spiritually rise:

When we invest where we are Spiritually Led, we reap incredible rewards:

If you have been wondering how to live life:
This is the Way, and
we inexorably WIN. We Can Not Lose.

So, HOW?

Jesus said:
  • Don’t build on Sand, build on Rock… by Doing the will of the Living God, following our unique path!
  • Seek first the Reign of God, Right Relationship with God, and all the things we need come to us.
  • I see my Father doing, and I do... and we are called to as Jesus did - he said we would do greater things than him.

This is not always easy, but it is straightforward:
  • We open to our SOUL Information, our Spiritual Senses.
  • We intend to ALIGN with ourselves and our Source: with our God, our Light, our Love, our Life, our Truth, our Way…
  • We are FILLED & HEALED & FREED Spiritually.
  • We continually let go of the old self and the old ways (this sometimes feels like DYING, because it is!).
  • We continually open to Life HERE & NOW, as it is, as we are.
  • We WALK our own Unique Soul Path, which becomes clearer and clearer, as we walk it.

Do you Really want to WIN the Game of Life?
  • Say YES to your Source, and get ready for the Ride of your Life!
  • Your mind will be BLOWN by what you do, who you be, with-whom you go, where you end up.
  • You inexorably WIN. You Can Not Lose.

What can I get from Introduction to Meditation and Soul Tools classes?

I have been sharing Introduction to Meditation and Soul Tools class with hundreds of people, since 2005.
Taking a class just like this, changed my life forever;
and I am still ridiculously enthusiastic about sharing these amazing spiritual tools with others.

I have noticed a trend over the years.
There are 3 main reasons people tend to participate in Tools classes:

1) they want to comfortably and safely open up to their soul / psychic information:
    learn to turn up (and/or down) their soul senses, so they can consciously function at full spiritual strength and ability.

2) they want to deepen spiritually, move along their unique path of soul evolution:
    deepen spiritual relationships with their body, the earth, their connection to the Divine, and All of their Relations.

3) they want to heal... and create new experiences, within themselves & in their world:
    transform their body, life, relationships, finances, vocation, creativity, empowerment…

Folks tend to come for some variation of the reasons above - and folks tend to get Far More than they bargained for! 

Participants tend to see true shift within them, and in their outer experience, over the course of the first month!
In the long-run, participants tend to open to ALL of the above and more.

If you are interested in opening psychically, deepening spiritually, or inviting healing & creating - please come and give it a try!

Lorane: Unraveling

(written by guest blogger Lorane)

As magical children, we all know we can play with our own minds – we do it all day long. For most of us, the process of becoming adults includes taming that bright, creative organ into a beast of burden. We are guided to transform that toy into a tool: a responsible, adult mind that will work and worry for us and others– and make sure that everything is safe and good according to the rules of whatever game we have learned. For those of us who identify as artists, we at least have windows of creative play free from worry, where we can stay in touch with our childish whims. But for much of our time as adults, we are employing our minds to work, fix, control, plan, and generally avoid disaster.

As a student of spiritual growth, an important part of the process is to learn how to play again. To recover that unabashed joy of the child who can dance, and draw, and sing, and who never worries about how it might look to others. When we are in play, we are not afraid. We love what we are doing, and we are doing it in joy. If something happens that we do not like, we handle it and move quickly back into play. That is a great thing to remind our minds as we unravel the cords that bind us so tightly and keep us from our joy.

In meditation with my spiritual teacher Wendy, she suggested that she saw an image of a long loop almost like a belt running through my abdomen and over my head in a closed circle. Looping through me and over me. We looked at it and it appeared to me to be like a long paper loop, layers upon layers of paper, like an almost endless roll of fortune cookie sayings in print. All the warnings and admonitions of a lifetime. She helped me to envision unraveling it; winding off layer after layer, placing the lines of text into a small fire. I kept at it. But after an awkwardly long time, the loop was still thick.

I wanted to just put it all into the fire and poof! It would be all gone. But even in this spiritual play that we were doing, true to the serious child I always was, I had to report the sad fact of the matter: this long loop of advice was not going away – there were still many miles of it, around and around. I told her I needed to take it home and keep meditating on it. She said, “Good. There are treasures in there for you.” What a lovely way to view past messaging. Treasures do not have to be only what we find, but also what we find we can let go of! The knowledge that we no longer need something is a treasure of great value that lessens our burdens and frees us up for more play.

I lay in bed that evening unraveling, unraveling for hours. I kept the fire going and tore bits of text off the end of the seemingly endless roll, and still there was more. It never got thin and I never got to the end. Finally around 3:00 a.m. I decided to try to burn the whole rest of the coil of advice. I saw it would not bend and I could not break it. So I made the bonfire big enough and hot enough to toss the whole belt of words into the flame. As it burned, I saw it break into four segments, like the four directions. There was a section of advice from Mother, from Father, from my older siblings, and then from all of society. Lots of advice! When I looked at it from my place of neutrality, I saw it was all well-meant. All good advice, from someone else’s point of view, about how to be safe and accepted.

As I saw it all burn to nothing, I wondered if I could remember some of the phrases and warnings, like trying to remember what an old fortune cookie said. What was the overall picture? What is the central message, if any? So many, many words! I found that I could translate that whole unraveled corset of words into two small bone earrings with a condensed message. One earring said SHOULD. The other said SHOULD NOT. I put these earrings into the fire and watched the bone turn to charcoal and then ash. The gold alone remained, a testimony to the good will and kind intentions of all my advisors.

Of course this is all silliness. There was no “real” fire and there were no real bone earrings. Nor has any computed tomography scan revealed a loop of paper with words on it implanted in my flesh and bone, knit into my muscle and sinew and woven in among my intestinal loops. Entering through the stomach and exiting through the lower back, making an awkward lump under my raincoat and impeding lovemaking. It is all make-believe. So what could be the possible value of any of this make-believe, this silliness, this play? I don’t know. My analyzing mind warns me that this is just self-indulgent mental masturbation, a distraction from the real things of life. The very real things of work and worry.

And yet one important thing became clear, even to my analyzing mind, as I played with these images and visions, unraveling this coil. The thousands of bits of warnings and advice and corrections and admonitions on my long, sinuous tape are NO MORE REAL than my imagined fire, my earrings, or anything else I choose to think. The fortune cookie list of advice that I drank in along with my mother’s milk from the very day I was born into this body is NO MORE REAL than any other part of the story I choose to live in. And as an adult, I do not have to continue to live in the stories that other well-meaning people have written into my script.

Through this spiritual work, really spiritual play, I have experienced that I can free my mind from some of the make-believe fetters that I have imagined and used to confine myself. We have all seen children who are suddenly released from school, car, house and run joyfully, blissfully, into an open space of nature, park or playground. Free! Those children are not running to fix something, to control something, to make someone wrong so they can be right. They are running to play and have fun with a wide-open heart and a sense of impending joy. They are fulfilled in the very moment of their release, already in the here and now, already playing full-hearted as they run toward play.

When my son was five or so, he came bursting out of his room one summer morning, and exclaimed joyfully, with an excited face and shining eyes: “I really, really want to do something SO MUCH, but I don’t know what it is!” I assured him that I knew that feeling, that eager summer morning feeling, of open possibilities and a day of play ahead. Of course we must always be in the here and now, but the here and now of standing on that precipice of knowing we are about to fly out into joyful play is a wonderful place to be. Thank you Wendy, for playing with me. A world of possibilities has opened up, and my heart is full and beating.

Love is nothing other than finding the Truth

Love is nothing other than finding the truth.
- Rumi

A friend asked about this quote, I said:

I didn’t used to grok this quote, because I wanted an *intellectual* answer.
In the end, this quote, and the consciousness it points-to, is not an intellectual exercise.
From my perspective, Rumi is pointing to a mystical / spiritual experience.

I believe Rumi is using poetry to point to something.
(like a finger pointing at the moon ; )

I am in process of realizing the wisdom of Rumi’s quote more & more,
because I am more and more dedicated to experiencing the wisdom beyond the intellect - spiritually knowing, seeing, hearing... experiencing of spiritual reality

It is challenging to speak about spiritual reality, becasue, generally, it doesn't make sense to the everyday mind..
Here are some ways to address Rumi's quote with a kind of logic:

What is the truth? All is ONE.
Affinity (the yummy part of love) is the spiritual Experience of the spiritual Truth of our spiritual Oneness…


‘God’ is Love
'God' is Truth

Some folks’ mental pictures of the world might like these logical assertions, some may not.
It doesn’t matter, in the end…

IMO, what does matter is that we go to the ‘well’ and ‘drink’!
This Really Matters!
Enjoy the water, bathe in the water, let the water into every cell, all of our attention filled with this water, experienced through this water... NOT to sit thinking all day about drinking or about thirst!!

So, I encourage us all to continue to explore beyond the finger:
all the way to the moon!!

When we allow actual spiritual experiences beyond our analyzer, beyond the physical, beyond duality:
these experiences can be accessed, our thirst quenched, and our life enriched by BEing the delight of living Truth, living Love;
not just trying to understand Love with our limited, little brains (as useful as they are).

I am off to get a drink...
in Life, Wendy

Yes, I shifted to metaphors - commonly used to mystics to say Something about Spiritual Reality… did someone say parables ;)

How can we make it Safe to Come Out?

From my perspective, this short video, Safe in my hands, applies to ALL of us,
each of us shines the Light in our own UNIQUE way
... and sometimes we feel vulnerable as who we Are, with our own relationship to the Universe, following our specific and unique path.

Sometimes we feel like a round peg in a square hole.
Sometimes we wonder:  will we find relationships where we really feel like we fit. Will folks we love see us, know us, love us as we ARE.
Sometimes we feel judged and excluded by others.

Sometimes the best parts of ourselves and our lives
- our very Distinctiveness, our Individual Gifts, the Special way we Understand and Relate to the Divine
can feel like dark blessings.

Sometimes living an authentic life can be really challenging!
AND despite all this, I would like to encourage us all:

It is a huge blessing for ourselves and others, to be our true selves and walk our unique path.
There is nothing better for us, no way we could enjoy more success, or love, joy, peace.
There is nothing we can do better for the world than to behold and reflect the Glory into the world, in our own special way.
We bring Light, Love, Truth, Divinity into the world in ways, places, times that could not happen otherwise.

Life is a process of Coming Out, for all of us.
Let's make it as Safe to Come Out as we can - for ourselves and each other.
Let the Light Shine!

What is your expereince with Coming Out as yourself - to yourself, to others?

How does the "Shamanic View of Mental Illness" relate to Psychic Healing?

This article is by Stephanie Marohn, featuring Malidoma Patrice Somé;  Excerpted from The Natural Medicine Guide to Schizophrenia.
I added a few notes about this article at the end.

The Shamanic View of Mental Illness

In the shamanic view, mental illness signals “the birth of a healer,” explains Malidoma Patrice Somé.  Thus, mental disorders are spiritual emergencies, spiritual crises, and need to be regarded as such to aid the healer in being born.

What those in the West view as mental illness, the Dagara people regard as “good news from the other world.”  The person going through the crisis has been chosen as a medium for a message to the community that needs to be communicated from the spirit realm.  “Mental disorder, behavioral disorder of all kinds, signal the fact that two obviously incompatible energies have merged into the same field,” says Dr. Somé.  These disturbances result when the person does not get assistance in dealing with the presence of the energy from the spirit realm.

One of the things Dr. Somé encountered when he first came to the United States in 1980 for graduate study was how this country deals with mental illness.  When a fellow student was sent to a mental institute due to “nervous depression,” Dr. Somé went to visit him.

“I was so shocked.  That was the first time I was brought face to face with what is done here to people exhibiting the same symptoms I’ve seen in my village.”  What struck Dr. Somé was that the attention given to such symptoms was based on pathology, on the idea that the condition is something that needs to stop.  This was in complete opposition to the way his culture views such a situation.  As he looked around the stark ward at the patients, some in straitjackets, some zoned out on medications, others screaming, he observed to himself, “So this is how the healers who are attempting to be born are treated in this culture.  What a loss!  What a loss that a person who is finally being aligned with a power from the other world is just being wasted.”

Another way to say this, which may make more sense to the Western mind, is that we in the West are not trained in how to deal or even taught to acknowledge the existence of psychic phenomena, the spiritual world.  In fact, psychic abilities are denigrated.  When energies from the spiritual world emerge in a Western psyche, that individual is completely unequipped to integrate them or even recognize what is happening.  The result can be terrifying.  Without the proper context for and assistance in dealing with the breakthrough from another level of reality, for all practical purposes, the person is insane.  Heavy dosing with anti-psychotic drugs compounds the problem and prevents the integration that could lead to soul development and growth in the individual who has received these energies.

On the mental ward, Dr Somé saw a lot of “beings” hanging around the patients, “entities” that are invisible to most people but that shamans and psychics are able to see.  “They were causing the crisis in these people,” he says.  It appeared to him that these beings were trying to get the medications and their effects out of the bodies of the people the beings were trying to merge with, and were increasing the patients’ pain in the process.  “The beings were acting almost like some kind of excavator in the energy field of people.  They were really fierce about that.  The people they were doing that to were just screaming and yelling,” he said.  He couldn’t stay in that environment and had to leave.
In the Dagara tradition, the community helps the person reconcile the energies of both worlds–”the world of the spirit that he or she is merged with, and the village and community.”  That person is able then to serve as a bridge between the worlds and help the living with information and healing they need.  Thus, the spiritual crisis ends with the birth of another healer.  “The other world’s relationship with our world is one of sponsorship,” Dr. Somé explains.  “More often than not, the knowledge and skills that arise from this kind of merger are a knowledge or a skill that is provided directly from the other world.”

The beings who were increasing the pain of the inmates on the mental hospital ward were actually attempting to merge with the inmates in order to get messages through to this world.  The people they had chosen to merge with were getting no assistance in learning how to be a bridge between the worlds and the beings’ attempts to merge were thwarted.  The result was the sustaining of the initial disorder of energy and the aborting of the birth of a healer.

“The Western culture has consistently ignored the birth of the healer,” states Dr. Somé.  “Consequently, there will be a tendency from the other world to keep trying as many people as possible in an attempt to get somebody’s attention.  They have to try harder.”  The spirits are drawn to people whose senses have not been anesthetized.  “The sensitivity is pretty much read as an invitation to come in,” he notes.  Those who develop so-called mental disorders are those who are sensitive, which is viewed in Western culture as oversensitivity.  Indigenous cultures don’t see it that way and, as a result, sensitive people don’t experience themselves as overly sensitive.  In the West, “it is the overload of the culture they’re in that    is just wrecking them,” observes Dr. Somé.  The frenetic pace, the bombardment of the senses, and the violent energy that characterize Western culture can overwhelm sensitive people.

Schizophrenia and Foreign Energy

With schizophrenia, there is a special “receptivity to a flow of images and information, which cannot be controlled,” stated Dr. Somé.  “When this kind of rush occurs at a time that is not personally chosen, and particularly when it comes with images that are scary and contradictory, the person goes into a frenzy.”

What is required in this situation is first to separate the person’s energy from the extraneous foreign energies, by using shamanic practice (what is known as a “sweep”) to clear the latter out of the individual’s aura.  With the clearing of their energy field, the person no longer picks up a flood of information and so no longer has a reason to be scared and disturbed, explains Dr. Somé.
Then it is possible to help the person align with the energy of the spirit being attempting to come through from the other world and give birth to the healer.  The blockage of that emergence is what creates problems.  “The energy of the healer is a high-voltage energy,” he observes.  “When it is blocked, it just burns up the person.  It’s like a short-circuit.  Fuses are blowing.  This is why it can be really scary, and I understand why this culture prefers to confine these people.  Here they are yelling and screaming, and they’re put into a straitjacket.  That’s a sad image.”  Again, the shamanic approach is to work on aligning the energies so there is no blockage, “fuses” aren’t blowing, and the person can become the healer they are meant to be.

It needs to be noted at this point, however, that not all of the spirit beings that enter a person’s energetic field are there for the purposes of promoting healing.  There are negative energies as well, which are undesirable presences in the aura.  In those cases, the shamanic approach is to remove them from the aura, rather than work to align the discordant energies.

Alex:  Crazy in the USA, Healer in Africa

To test his belief that the shamanic view of mental illness holds true in the Western world as well as in indigenous cultures, Dr. Somé took a mental patient back to Africa with him, to his village.  “I was prompted by my own curiosity to find out whether there’s truth in the universality that mental illness could be connected with an alignment with a being from another world,” says Dr. Somé.

Alex was an 18-year-old American who had suffered a psychotic break when he was 14.  He had hallucinations, was suicidal, and went through cycles of dangerously severe depression.  He was in a mental hospital and had been given a lot of drugs, but nothing was helping.  “The parents had done everything–unsuccessfully,” says Dr. Somé.  “They didn’t know what else to do.”

With their permission, Dr. Somé took their son to Africa.  “After eight months there, Alex had become quite normal, Dr. Somé reports.  He was even able to participate with healers in the business of healing; sitting with them all day long and helping them, assisting them in what they were doing with their clients . . . . He spent about four years in my village.”  Alex stayed by choice, not because he needed more healing.  He felt, “much safer in the village than in America.”

To bring his energy and that of the being from the spiritual realm into alignment, Alex went through a shamanic ritual designed for that purpose, although it was slightly different from the one used with the Dagara people.  “He wasn’t born in the village, so something else applied.  But the result was similar, even though the ritual was not literally the same,” explains Dr. Somé.  The fact that aligning the energy worked to heal Alex demonstrated to Dr. Somé that the connection between other beings and mental illness is indeed universal.

After the ritual, Alex began to share the messages that the spirit being had for this world.  Unfortunately, the people he was talking to didn’t speak English (Dr. Somé was away at that point).  The whole experience led, however, to Alex’s going to college to study psychology.  He returned to the United States after four years because “he discovered that all the things that he needed to do had been done, and he could then move on with his life.”

The last that Dr. Somé heard was that Alex was in graduate school in psychology at Harvard.  No one had thought he would ever be able to complete undergraduate studies, much less get an advanced degree.

Dr. Somé sums up what Alex’s mental illness was all about:  “He was reaching out.  It was an emergency call.  His job and his purpose was to be a healer.  He said no one was paying attention to that.”

After seeing how well the shamanic approach worked for Alex, Dr. Somé concluded that spirit beings are just as much an issue in the West as in his community in Africa.  “Yet the question still remains, the answer to this problem must be found here, instead of having to go all the way overseas to seek the answer.  There has to be a way in which a little bit of attention beyond the pathology of this whole experience leads to the possibility of coming up with the proper ritual to help people.

Longing for Spiritual Connection

A common thread that Dr. Somé has noticed in “mental” disorders in the West is “a very ancient ancestral energy that has been placed in stasis, that finally is coming out in the person.”  His job then is to trace it back, to go back in time to discover what that spirit is.  In most cases, the spirit is connected to nature, especially with mountains or big rivers, he says.

In the case of mountains, as an example to explain the phenomenon, “it’s a spirit of the mountain that is walking side by side with the person and, as a result, creating a time-space distortion that is affecting the person caught in it.”  What is needed is a merger or alignment of the two energies, “so the person and the mountain spirit become one.”  Again, the shaman conducts a specific ritual to bring about this alignment.

Dr. Somé believes that he encounters this situation so often in the United States because “most of the fabric of this country is made up of the energy of the machine, and the result of that is the disconnection and the severing of the past.  You can run from the past, but you can’t hide from it.”  The ancestral spirit of the natural world comes visiting.  “It’s not so much what the spirit wants as it is what the person wants,” he says.  “The spirit sees in us a call for something grand, something that will make life meaningful, and so the spirit is responding to that.”

That call, which we don’t even know we are making, reflects “a strong longing for a profound connection, a connection that transcends materialism and possession of things and moves into a tangible cosmic dimension.  Most of this longing is unconscious, but for spirits, conscious or unconscious doesn’t make any difference.”  They respond to either.

As part of the ritual to merge the mountain and human energy, those who are receiving the “mountain energy” are sent to a mountain area of their choice, where they pick up a stone that calls to them.  They bring that stone back for the rest of the ritual and then keep it as a companion; some even carry it around with them.  “The presence of the stone does a lot in tuning the perceptive ability of the person,” notes Dr. Somé.  “They receive all kinds of information that they can make use of, so it’s like they get some tangible guidance from the other world as to how to live their life.”

When it is the “river energy,” those being called go to the river and, after speaking to the river spirit, find a water stone to bring back for the same kind of ritual as with the mountain spirit.

“People think something extraordinary must be done in an extraordinary situation like this,” he says.  That’s not usually the case.  Sometimes it is as simple as carrying a stone.

A Sacred Ritual Approach to Mental Illness

One of the gifts a shaman can bring to the Western world is to help people rediscover ritual, which is so sadly lacking.  “The abandonment of ritual can be devastating.  From the spiritual view, ritual is inevitable and necessary if one is to live,” Dr. Somé writes in Ritual:  Power, Healing, and Community. “To say that ritual is needed in the industrialized world is an understatement.  We have seen in my own people that it is probably impossible to live a sane life without it.”

Dr. Somé did not feel that the rituals from his traditional village could simply be transferred to the West, so over his years of shamanic work here, he has designed rituals that meet the very different needs of this culture.  Although the rituals change according to the individual or the group involved, he finds that there is a need for certain rituals in general.

One of these involves helping people discover that their distress is coming from the fact that they are “called by beings from the other world to cooperate with them in doing healing work.”  Ritual allows them to move out of the distress and accept that calling.

Another ritual need relates to initiation.  In indigenous cultures all over the world, young people are initiated into adulthood when they reach a certain age.  The lack of such initiation in the West is part of the crisis that people are in here, says Dr. Somé.  He urges communities to bring together “the creative juices of people who have had this kind of experience, in an attempt to come up with some kind of an alternative ritual that would at least begin to put a dent in this kind of crisis.”

Another ritual that repeatedly speaks to the needs of those coming to him for help entails making a bonfire, and then putting into the bonfire “items that are symbolic of issues carried inside the individuals . . . It might be the issues of anger and frustration against an ancestor who has left a legacy of murder and enslavement or anything, things that the descendant has to live with,” he explains.  “If these are approached as things that are blocking the human imagination, the person’s life purpose, and even the person’s view of life as something that can improve, then it makes sense to begin thinking in terms of how to turn that blockage into a roadway that can lead to something more creative and more fulfilling.”

The example of issues with an ancestors touches on rituals designed by Dr. Somé that address a serious dysfunction in Western society and in the process “trigger enlightenment” in participants.  These are ancestral rituals, and the dysfunction they are aimed at is the mass turning-of-the-back on ancestors.  Some of the spirits trying to come through, as described earlier, may be “ancestors who want to merge with a descendant in an attempt to heal what they weren’t able to do while in their physical body.”

“Unless the relationship between the living and the dead is in balance, chaos ensues,” he says.  “The Dagara believe that, if such an imbalance exists, it is the duty of the living to heal their ancestors.  If these ancestors are not healed, their sick energy will haunt the souls and psyches of those who are responsible for helping them.”  The rituals focus on healing the relationship with our ancestors, both specific issues of an individual ancestor and the larger cultural issues contained in our past.  Dr. Somé has seen extraordinary healing occur at these rituals.

Taking a sacred ritual approach to mental illness rather than regarding the person as a pathological case gives the person affected–and indeed the community at large–the opportunity to begin looking at it from that vantage point too, which leads to “a whole plethora of opportunities and ritual initiative that can be very, very beneficial to everyone present,” states. Dr. Somé.

The Shamanic View of Mental Illness

(Excerpted from The Natural Medicine Guide to Schizophrenia,
pages 178-189, or The Natural Medicine Guide to Bi-polar Disorder)
 This excerpt from:
This information is from this Malidoma Patrice Somé, there is a lot more info available about and from him - if interested, you can start here:

For me, this article validates really well the individual work I do with people and foreign energies.  He speaks as a Shaman, not a Psychic - and I enjoyed hearing his perspective, so similar to mine.

I address other spiritual issues too;
But, regarding what is in this article - it is nice to hear such straightforward descriptions of the 'world' I work in everyday, and how needful it is.
I have different beliefs around how to own our space relative to foreign energies and I have different practices, but the results are similar.

I really like the lens of 'birth of a healer', this will inform my work going forward with folks who are beset with foreign energy, dealing with mental illness, as well as physical, emotional & energetic overwhelm...
I have been operating through the idea that these experiences are spiritual calls for us to to go deeper, and gifts - albeit often 'dark gifts'.  But the specific addition of being called as a healer may assist some of the folks I work with, as yet another lever to assist their healing journey.

I notice the Shaman has the assistance of a community, supporting his worldview and that of the troubled person - this is a big help.  We are swimming against the stream of a world of physical-focus, as well as the uncomfortable American culture he refers to.
I am blessed to be part of a growing psychic community in Seattle, which is a great support for healers as well the 'birth of a healers'.  My psychic community in NJ is much smaller - but there is a beachhead, which really does help.

I am inspired by the Shaman's use of group ritual, and I will ask Spirit if there are ways for me to integrate this lever for more powerful, efficient group processes.

Best, wendy

Can you notice where is is harder to Own with Ease and Grace, and let this BE ok?

How can you own more deeply? from the place of mind, body & spirit:
  • your body, your wellness, fitness, and being consciously in present-time
  • your relationship(s)
  • your family, and how you relate to them - both blood and chosen family
  • your rest, relaxation, reinvigoration
  • your recreation, play, and creativity
  • your sensuality and deliciousness of all your senses
  • your sexual expression and desires
  • your home, your stuff, your transportation
  • your bank account, and other assets
  • your joyful expression of aliveness in the world
  • your career/vocation/contribution to life to the world
  • your spiritual path and your calling in this lifetime
  • your connection with the Divine
Even if you Share these things with others, how can you Own them for Your Self?

Please review all the ideas from last week, from the perspective of owning, instead of perspective of leadership…
When you look from Ownership instead of Leadership, how does this change how you see these areas of your life?

Day before workshop:

Please meditate and journal on all your answers and insights in the last couple weeks: let 2 - 6 areas of your life arise, that you can succinctly name, which you would like to focus-on during the workshop, and in the following weeks and months:
  • Where are you called forward?  
  • What is sparking your creative energy? 
  • What parts of your current life would be so much more fulfilling if you were owning them? 
  • When you focus on Leadership, what draws you?  
Again - choose the top few areas of your life that you want to move forward in Leadership and Ownership, Now.

Hope you Enjoy your process!!!
