The trauma of the Las Vegas shooting has left thousands with soul loss - victims, their loved ones, the responders, and to some degree, all of us. This recording will help you heal by calling back your own soul. Grandmother Sunflower wants you to have this gift from her.Read More
Stories of Healing and Love
This page features stories from my healing sessions and our journey circles. If you have a story from our sessions that you would like me to include please email me. To request a healing session for you or your animal, click here.
Modern medicine is opening the door to the creative life force of our stem cells. The research is ongoing, and I will be following it as best I can. What intrigues me most is the perspective it gives me on shamanic soul retrieval.
Medical doctors in regenerative medicine are using the creative power of our stem cells to heal intractable conditions. Grandmother Sunflower has told me repeatedly that modern medicine was on the cusp of a breakthrough that would change the world. This is exciting!
My story is about the interface of this knowledge and the practice of soul retrieval. A new chapter has opened for me, and I am excited to share it with you.Read More
The Yarnell fire, which claimed 19 firefighter lives 2 days ago, is about 80 miles from where I live. Our whole community is reeling. The Healing Clinic on Monday July 1 was a small gathering of Qualified Healers, and we chose to do a healing journey for those affected by the fire. We set our intention to go to our sacred circles in non-ordinary reality, and ask our Spirit Allies to do whatever needs to be done to help all the suffering beings, be they human, domestic animals, or spirits of the natural world. Three of us individually and separately saw that Spirits have set up "soul shelters" for the suffering people and animals in non-ordinary reality. Mine looked like a huge soul refugee camp in my sacred circle, with wooden teepee like structures. There were white lines of light connecting each soul to its proper "owner", and those lines were protected by Centaurs. The other people saw things a little differently, but the gist was the same. ( I also saw Dragons working to create a fire line, and important Compassionate Beings working to restore balance to the 4 elements so that the fire is less destructive.) These Soul Shelters are places where their soul parts can be safe while the person animal goes through the drama. After the drama ends, then the soul will be safe for recovery, and the spirits have lined up helpers to bring those souls home.
We also each saw a sophisticated system in place to restore balance and bring healing. The compassionate spirits are responding with a collective knowhow that is ancient and true. Seeing this was a revelation to me. It explains so much even though I still can't put what I learned into words. That all of us saw the same things is confirmation. We set our intentions to ask for help, and we stood witness to the incredible support system that the Spirits already have in place.
I have posted recordings of our journey here. Part 1 states our intention. 7-1-13 healing clinic Part 1
Part 2 shares the report of our journeys. Part 1 is attached here. I welcome you to listen to the intention and do a journey as well, and share your stories with us. To listen to Part 2 please go here: Journey for Yarnell
Shamanism is as old as mankind. It is a way of walking, hearing, seeing and being that connects us to the world beneath the world, the spirit that is inside, outside, enmeshed in and parallel to the ordinary world we perceive every day. We begin a shamanic path by studying the ancient pathways that connect the worlds and teach us to work with spirit. Thanks to Micheal Harner and the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, these old worn paths, overgrown by modern culture, are being steadily cleared. Every day they grow more visible to us and are now fairly easy to follow.
Modern shamanic teachers take people first along the wide and clearly marked paths to teach them to journey. Think of the first few miles of a major trail right after the tail head. It is like a super highway and is populated by people of all types. Further into the forest the trails diverge and become less traveled, more rugged, and more adventuresome. Today's shamanic teachers have cleared these paths for you into the specific areas of their interest: Celtic Shamanism, Shape Shifting, White Table, Animal Healing, Soul Retrieval, and so many more fascinating arenas.
I have opened paths that are about healing our Animal Partners (dogs, cats, horses etc) using shamanic methods. In my trainings I apply common shamanic techniques to animal clients. But I do so in a way that is unique to the trails I have uncovered. Over the course of 10 years of concentrated journey work and attention I have been taught a way of working shamanically that is very powerful, and is especially beneficial for working with animals and their people. I teach this method through telelclasses with the Animal Spirit Network, and through workshops worldwide and private trainings.
I am not sure exactly what cultural traditions I am following when I do my work. I am not much of a scholar. I am an explorer. I ask the spirits to show me how to achieve big results. I ask them to explain the cosmology of the world to me empirically: through shamanic journey experiences, results in my clients, and parallel experiences in my students. The results are profound for me and for my students. (By the way I enjoy taking workshops and connecting with other shamanic teachers. It is so exciting to learn the paths they have been shown, and to see if and how they overlap with the ones I am following.)
Here are the themes of the shamanic exploration I am embarking on today:
Spirals and the Nexus of Creation: At the center of the spiral is a place of brilliance. The place of creation itself. A client in that spiral can experience a transfiguration that explodes away the old and rebirths in pure divinity. The secret is in the preparation and the ceremony. I have two workshops that explore this : Healing in the Spiral of Time and Sacred Animal Masks. Sacred Animal Masks is offered in Phoenix and Chicago Spring 2008.
The Power of Ecosystems: This started with my desire to communicate with reef life (all the critters, not just whales and dolphins). Communicating with reef life opened up a new revelation for me in the power of using ecosystems as healers for clients and for the earth herself. As a result I see the earth totally differently today than I did even a year ago. I am currently exploring ecosystem work with my advanced private students. I will be birthing it in a week long workshop on private Caribbean sailing boat cruise in 2009. (Yes, we will swim with Dophins!)
Animal Tribes: Domestic Animals are very dependent upon their connection to their spirit tribes. The spirits tribes facilitate the death and dying process. They bring super powerful healing power. They give the animal a point of reference in the world. They hold any soul parts that were not fully committed to the body at birth. The tribal stories are the animal's mythology, critical to the animal's self concept. I am forever exploring these tribal connections and teaching about them in my trainings. There is more to this story too (there always is). Our power is a function of our connection to our tribes. Our tribes are our loved ones here on earth, our ancestors, spirit family, power animals and their tribes. We will be connecting to our Power Animal's tribe in the Mask workshop - see the page links!
My trainings are guidances. Your teachers are the spirits. Together we explore paths that are well worn, but over grown, and we rebirth that knowledge for the whole world!
