The Gray-Scale Zone

Over the last 25 years, I’ve been trained in many healing modalities—many techniques used to help facilitate a client’s progress during their own personal healing journey. In other words: I know ‘stuff.’  I can do ‘stuff.’ My more spiritual work began with the Japanese energy-therapy practice of REIKI.  Then I received training in Karuna REIKIContinue reading “The Gray-Scale Zone”

On the Same Wave-Length

Must be something in the air.  All the folks I follow are tuned in to the same thought frequency. Alberto Villoldo  “According to Quantum physics, past and future are not separate, location doesn’t exist, the world only comes into existence once observed, and this thing we call reality is one of many, possibly infinite, parallelContinue reading “On the Same Wave-Length”

‘Understanding Nothing’ At Last

I did chuckle when I saw this saying above: “To understand nothing takes time,” because I remember thinking as a junior in high school that there couldn’t be ANYTHING new to learn that I already did not know, so what was the point of my senior year?  Ha-ha. (Yes, I actually said that.) It’s hardContinue reading “‘Understanding Nothing’ At Last”

How I Feel

*** “The beauty of the trees, the softness of the air, the fragrance of the grass, they speak to me. The summit of the mountain, the thunder of the sky, the rhythm of the sea, speaks to me. The faintness of the stars, the freshness of the morning, the dewdrop on the flower, speaks toContinue reading “How I Feel”

‘The Way of the Hero’ per Joseph Campbell

One of my gifts or flaws depending on how you view it, is that I’m always searching for a logical context/framework to better understanding all aspects of LIFE in general; and how we humans interpret/make-sense-of all the ‘beings’ and ‘doings’ of this world that we experience in our somewhat unique way—or as ‘unique’ as 7.9Continue reading “‘The Way of the Hero’ per Joseph Campbell”

Becoming a Spiritual Warrior

I really didn’t want to blatantly rip off Alberto Villoldo’s latest newsletter, but what he mentions here is worth sharing in its entirety with others who might have some interest in the subject matter discussed. In some ways this does remind me of Buddhism’s “Eight-fold Path”—or “The Way to Enlightenment,” complete with the “Four NobleContinue reading “Becoming a Spiritual Warrior”

The Vortex

Tao & Zen  “I seem, like everything else, to be a center, a sort of vortex, at which the whole energy of the universe realizes itself.. Each one of us, not only human beings but every leaf, every weed, exists in the way it does, only because everything else around it does. The individual andContinue reading “The Vortex”

Ghosts In the Attic

“Intergenerational Complexes in Analytical Psychology: The Suffering of Ghosts …This book shows how the cultural unconscious with its multiple group dynamics, identities, nationalities, seething differences of conflicts, polarizations, and individual personalities are organized by cultural complexes and narrated by archetypal story formations, which the author calls ‘phantom narratives’. …” (Amazon.com) *** Background: Since signing upContinue reading “Ghosts In the Attic”

The Mobius Strip—Mind Beyond Death

A mobius strip is an endless looping band where the separate ends of the band were reconnected after giving it a half twist so the eye travels up and over and back again—right-side up then upside down then right-side up, etc.. You know—like the LIFE/DEATH process itself. It’s a continuum of sorts—a thing with noContinue reading “The Mobius Strip—Mind Beyond Death”

REBIRTH

“True initiation is a response to an inner calling; it requires that you face personal challenges heroically, and to experience a genuine rebirth into a new way of being.”  Alberto Villoldo, PhD Ask any screaming newborn just forcefully squeezed out of its mother’s womb like toothpaste from a crumpled tube, how pleasant birthing can be.Continue reading “REBIRTH”

Siwar Q’enti – The Royal Hummingbird

The image above may be of a Violet Sabrewing or a Costa Rican Hummingbird rather than a Peruvian Royal Hummer, but when I saw it staring back at me, I remembered that in Peruvian Shamanism the hummingbird (Siwar Q’enti) represented the North direction and embarking on the epic migratory journey while connecting into the HigherContinue reading “Siwar Q’enti – The Royal Hummingbird”

The Pains of Initiation

So far I’m not sure how to frame this year 2020—to attempt to put it into some comprehensible context for proper assessment. I mean what perspective can you use to wrap your arms around something this immensely prickly and caustic? Assessing 2020 is like hugging a 30-foot tall saguaro cactus and hoping that you don’tContinue reading “The Pains of Initiation”
