A Dance with Depression: Finding Light in Your Darkness

If you have ever embarked on a spiritual path of any kind you’ve probably heard the terms ‘dark night of the soul’ or ‘shadow self’.  As heavy as those words can be, sometimes with quite negative connotations, they constitute a part of us that needs to be acknowledged, and when the time calls for it, engaged with. I sincerely never thought they would pertain to me.   Ahhh…it was only a matter of time before they showed up on my doorstep, in full force and I got to the point ... [Read more...]

We All Have This Power. Time To Use It

The word below has been hailed in just about every major spiritual text, it is the centerpiece of hundreds of songs (rock, folk, and even opera), and if used properly, it can create almost immediate transformation in your life. The word is forgiveness. Over the past month I’ve had the honor of meeting with a few people who miraculously healed themselves of serious illness.  In these conversations, one word has come up repeatedly as being the secret to their recovery. You guessed it. We ... [Read more...]

Blue Moon Mugwort – Navigating the Dream World

Have you ever met or known someone who encouraged you to do things you otherwise may not have ever done or thought of? Well that’s one of the beautiful things about working with plants. Over the last year, my experience working with plant spirits has been an unfolding journey. Along with many other amazing lessons, they have taught me to listen – not necessarily with my ears, but to more carefully listen to the inner voice and to observe myself. Thus when unusual thoughts seem to well ...

The X-factor Of Energy Healing. Trust.

For the past couple of years, my greatest number of Reiki patients has been those with a variety of cancers. Having worked in the field of oncology as an RN for nearly 9 years I can tell you that not all cancers are the same. Not all cancers are treated with the same drugs. Even for those individuals who have the same cancer and may be treated with the same drugs, their bodies may react differently in terms of side effects. By the time most people arrive at my door they are fairly beaten up ... [Read more...]

Phase Shift: Synchronizing With The Moon (Part 2)

Last time, in Part I, we discussed different ways to bring the rhythms of the moon into your body and life, at any point during the month. This time, we’ll explore what we can do during certain phases to maximize her power. By inviting the moon into our bodies, we can become more aware of what energies are present in each of her phases, and thus can call upon them to support our intentions, rituals, spiritual practices, emotions and life. New Moon / Crone Moon The night is dark, no moon in ... [Read more...]

Lunar Power: Harvesting the Moon’s Energy (Part 1)

As we journey through life, the rhythms of nature are echoed in our emotions, energy levels, dreams and aspirations. In the Spring, we feel ourselves awakening with new found joy & vitality, while in the Fall, we savor the fruit of our labor, appreciating our abundant harvests as we turn inward after an active summer. By weaving a web of connection between the four directions, the seasons, times of day, phases of the moon, and stages of creation, we are able to align our bodies with the ... [Read more...]

Soul Intervention: Treating Mental Illness in India

Mental illness can mean different things to different people. In the scientific community, we believe that it can be a totally chemical based condition, but that’s only one possible diagnosis. Is there sometimes more than meets the eye? In many civilizations around the world, it’s not so much about what is physically wrong inside, but rather who may be around with you.  The term ‘spirit possession’ is often used as a cultural explanation for what is happening, with symptoms ...

Medicine In Your Garden – The Miracles of Herb Robert

A sunny weekend at home at our little cottage in the valleys of the Brecon Beacons was a great opportunity to get out into our magical and diverse garden, and reacquaint ourselves with some “old friends.” Over the course of the last year, since I started my 4 year apprenticeship with Plant Spirit Healer & Herbalist Carole Guyett, I have become much more aware of plants and flowers trying to get my attention. This has helped me not only expand my knowledge as I have gone away and ... [Read more...]

Spiritual Daggers: The Power of Thoughts and Words

Do you think it matters what you say and think about others, whether good or bad? Do you believe in the power of prayer or the power of ill-thoughts or curses – what some might call ‘black magic?’ Interestingly Western, Judeo-Christian societies have always accepted the power of prayer, but there has been much less acceptance of the possibility of doing harm to others through our thoughts or our wishes. The indigenous peoples, however, have always acknowledged that we can help or ... [Read more...]

You Were Born With This Knowledge. Remember?

About three years ago, my wife Michelle gave birth to our first child, River, and our lives have taken on a whole new meaning ever since. As one of my teachers once told me, “If you think that shamanic medicine is strong, watch out! Children are the strongest medicine of all”. I cannot express how right he was! What an incredible growth experience. My son River is like a cosmic mirror who reflects every emotion and thought pattern that we show him. We’re constantly learning ... [Read more...]
