How to create a Mastermind Group you have access to at any time.

Lately I’ve been reminded me of certain meditative techniques.  One of these techniques is the Council of Elders, the other is Quantum Jumping, and the last one is a meditative practice that combines elements of both that I found in a book by Serge Kahili King entitled “Urban Shaman”. The first is a technique referenced… Read more »

The Sexual Urge as a Creative Urge

The pulse within the genital physical region, its magnetic heat seeking union with another.  The goal of creation (of a child, an experience, a connection) masked as a search for pure physical pleasure.  I have to wonder if libido has a twin within the creative impulse of all humans – whether the artist, the writer,… Read more »

The Tarot Cards as an Aid in Creativity

The Tarot cards as a symbolic language can aid in jumpstarting one’s creativity and intuition.  When one communes with the symbols on a tarot card it increases one’s symbolic vocabulary, one’s mythic/archetypal vocabulary.  In this way, the world around us becomes a conversation steeped in symbolism – archetypal, mythical, spiritual, creative – all within the… Read more »

Qi Gong Part 1

“Chi kung” or “Qi gong” is a general term used in reference to different practices – some moving, some static, some meditative/contemplative – but all involving the accumulation, movement, and storage of “qi”.  That then leads to the question as to what is chi?

An Introduction to Chakras

There are a number of paradigms that detail the structure and workings of the human energy system.  There are similarities between these systems and some differences.  There also seems to be different focuses depending on which paradigm of internal/spiritual energy one is speaking of.  Today I’d like to introduce the Indian chakra system.  This paradigm… Read more »

Crystals

One staple of healing is the use of crystals.  There is an abundant amount of crystals of all colours to work with.  They all help with different mental, physical, and spiritual issues.  There are a number of good books on the market to choose from that explain what healing properties each crystal has.  Two that… Read more »

Tuning Forks and Sound Healing

I’ve practiced a healing technique for years, one involving the use of tuning forks.  This is considered a form of sound healing.  The forks are passed over or directly placed on the point on the body corresponding to the seven main energy centres or chakras of the body, as well as other energy centres.  These… Read more »
