A Winter Shrine To The Sacred Pine

As the winter solstice approaches, there is an ancient tradition that many of us still practice. Many adults and children alike here in the States and around the world get into the holiday spirit by hauling a bushy evergreen tree into the living room, standing it up in a prominent location and decorating it with lights, miniature figurines and spiritual symbols. What we don’t often realize is that the pine, spruce and fur tree are powerful native medicines that hold many gifts for our mind, ... [Read more...]

A Native Sun Prayer To Brighten Your Day

Something stunning happened while I was driving my son to school yesterday morning. My eyes were fixed on the dark, dawn-lit road ahead as my mind was busy mulling over the various things on my schedule for the day. Then I noticed a gigantic ball of flame creeping over the trees into the sky. A sense of simple amazement coursed through me as I tried to comprehend the existence of this yellow dwarf star that was creating another bright day on my home planet. Without the light of the sun, life on... [Read more...]

3 Gratitude Rituals For Joy And Wonderment

Did you know that it’s almost impossible to be upset and grateful at the same time? It’s one of those universal truths that is easy to prove – just try it yourself. Being thankful flips a switch inside of you that clears out any negative feelings you were experiencing a few moments before. “Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” —William Arthur Ward It may seem counterintuitive to feel ...

The One Thing I Had To Give Up

Sometimes the one thing that is slowly sabotaging our lives is right under our noses. When we feel “out of whack”, our monkey minds tend to blame someone or something outside of ourselves – the over demanding boss, the guy who cut you off in traffic, the child who refuses to listen, the unexpected tax bill… but in reality, it all comes down to us. Ready to hear something personal? A few months ago, I began to notice that I was becoming anxious throughout the day, unable to ... [Read more...]

A Morning Prayer To Start Your Week

With the onset of autumn here in the northern hemisphere, the cold dark mornings can make it difficult to jumpstart your day. This is where a morning mindfulness prayer can really come in handy. I recently came across a beautiful, short Ayurvedic prayer that is a reminder of the beauty and wonders of the world. Its few short lines speak to our most basic, human concerns. It manifests joy, love, and peace. And most important—it reminds us to express thanks and gratitude. After all, no matter ... [Read more...]

3 Wild Herbs For Lucid Dreaming

Do you remember what you dreamt about last night?  How about the night before? For thousands of years, we humans have placed a ton of value on the content of these bedtime reveries, deriving inner wisdom and even premonitions from them. Dreaming feels like a birthright, an extra sense that allows us to process both rationally and spiritually while our body rests up. They are one of behavioral science’s biggest mysteries, with no agreed-upon theory of their origin and specific purpose. For ... [Read more...]

The Ancient Art Of Chakra Bathing

Okay, I have to admit—it took me a while to get on board with my chakras. First of all, they don’t teach us about our energy systems in science class. Second, we can’t see them, so they’re not obvious parts of our bodies like, say, our hands. But the more I learned about chakras, and the more I got in tune with my body, the more I realized you can feel them. Sometimes it can feel like a cool breeze, a subtle vibration or a warm tingling sensation somewhere along your spine. You can ... [Read more...]

Soul Wisdom From The Dagara Tribe

This morning, I came across a bit of wisdom from the Dagara people of West Africa that really struck a chord. The words below were spoken by Malidoma Patrice Somé, a spiritualist and writer from this tribe, whose work is centered on the ancestral healing traditions and sacred rituals of his people. In Dagara communities, the function of the soul is very carefully examined. The appearance of each individual means far less than the essence or truth that is contained within one’s body. The soul...

A Modern-Day Shaman Shares Her Wisdom

A few days ago, I had the honor of speaking with a woman who has made a profound impact on the world of shamanic healing over the past 30 years. Her name is Sandra Ingerman and her wisdom stems from ancient healing traditions deep in Siberia, the land where the word “shaman” originates. The presence she holds and the truth she speaks are a testament to the inner and outer frontiers she has ventured beyond. I’ve wanted to meet Sandra for years, and to be totally honest, I was a little ... [Read more...]

The Power Of The Invisible

A few weeks ago, I had a conversation that blew my mind and heart right open… Know the kind I’m talking about? An exchange with another person that pulls you right back into alignment with your spirit path? This is what happened to me during an interview with Colette Baron-Reid – a psychic medium, seer and oracle who I am honored to call my friend. She led me on a short shamanic journey that she’ll lead you through in the video below as well. Colette calls it “Get on Your Bird,” and... [Read more...]

5 Signs You’re Out Of Spiritual Alignment

Do you ever get a nagging sensation that something is not quite right inside of you? I’m not talking about a kink in your neck or an upset stomach – this is deeper than that. Maybe it’s a limitation within yourself, or a lack of flow and direction where there once was an abundance. Familiar with any of those? Of course you are, because you’re human! If you didn’t encounter occasional slumps, I’d be worried that you had a screw loose. Inhabiting these earthly bodies on ... [Read more...]

Is The Universe Trying To Tell You Something?

Have you ever noticed certain patterns in your life that keep happening over and over again? Maybe it’s a number. Like when you see 11:11 on a clock multiple times in a week, for example. Maybe it’s the repeated mention of a book or song. One of our team members, Bonnie, was recently contacted by three different friends who had encountered a live bear in the wild – separately – in three different states. At first, she thought, “Oh, how interesting—the spirit of the bear is trying to... [Read more...]
