Fear Itself

Fear is a tightening of the chest, a shackle to the ground, the knife that clips our wings.  At the beginning of anything new, often before the very first step into the perceived abyss, fear cautions and cajoles, warns, and works to keep us from starting.  We should feel this fear completely, acknowledge its presence,… Read more »

Sacred Breath

Each breath is a sacred act.  You have been given life and a moment by moment reminder of this exists within the act of breathing.  Something of such importance is given no attention by us unless it becomes difficult to do.  Breathing is automatic, until it is not, but only in those rare instances that… Read more »

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 »

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? That would be the part where one stumbles a bit. Qi… Read more »

Why the language of Quantum Physics?

I’ve come across a number of healing and manifestation methods lately that use the language of quantum physics as part of their paradigm to varying degrees.  From the heavily influenced by quantum physics paradigm of Matrix Energetics, to those that sprinkle a few buzzwords lifted from the thought system of quantum physics.  In addition, many… Read more »

The Power of Prayer

I haven’t prayed in a long time.  Including a ritualized prayer recited from memory.  Nor a spontaneous prayer off the cuff.  But today I actually found myself in a posture of prayer, woefully expressing my regrets, sorrows, and shame to some intangible Other that may very well be One with me (according to some paradigms). … Read more »

The Two-Point Technique

I’ve become fascinated with a healing and transformation often called the two-point technique. I first saw it in a book by one of my favorite authors Serge Kahili King.  Serge King is a Hawaiian shaman.  The book is “Urban Shaman”. I recently discovered another modern shaman, so to speak, who also teaches a version of… Read more »
