SEPTEMBER 2021: Soul Life

"The mind, this globe of awareness, is a starry universe that when you push off with your foot, a thousand new roads become clear, as you yourself do at dawn, sailing through the light." ~Rumi

Chances are, if you are reading this, if you are here and interested in the Light, you are a modern mystic, a seeker of truths, sacred insights and deep magic. Maybe you're even a wisdomkeeper yourself! 

It didn't used to be "safe" to own any of that. In fact, it used to be quite detrimental to one's health to be entertaining such an intimate relationship with the divine. But the world is fast becoming a different place. The tipping point has been reached and now the correction has begun.

“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.”  ― Carl Sagan

We are at a very delicate stage of our human evolutionary development, both as a whole and as individuals. We have enough consciousness now and enough layers of denial removed to realize the extent of what humanity has been through.

Most of us have processed gallons of grief, boatloads of anger and gigawatts of rage. Some of us have done so much clearing that we are starting to have past life recollections and visions on a regular basis. 

Some of us are developing the new skills that will soon be coming online for everyone such as increased psychism, heightened empathic senses, and mediumship including clairvoyance, clairsentience, and clairaudience. This will bring us to yet a whole new set of issues to be dealt with.

"Not just beautiful, though--the stars are like the trees in the forest, alive and breathing. And they're watching me.”  ― Haruki Murakami

One of the most wonderful and powerful gifts that are coming to more and more people is the power to channel their spiritual guides, which include ascended masters, ancestors, animal spirits and angels, in addition to our Higher Selves and our own soul! When we begin to take this communication seriously everything changes. 

These guides and guardians exist to help us. When we don't call on them, or take them seriously we are denying ourselves greater, more conscious access to the deep magic. For it is these beings who can safely guide us through the dimensional gateways to higher consciousness and help us anchor it with meaning into our lives.

“The stars in the night shone above her. The stars deep within shone inside her. Melding and lighting the darkness, the holiness danced within. ” ~Terri St. Cloud.

As all of these strange new human qualities emerge, we need a great deal of support. It is important to receive that support so that we can help each other stay grounded in our ascension process. After all, we're not leaving the planet, we are shifting and changing, just as Gaia is shifting and changing. We are connected and that has never been more apparent. 

It's time to let your own radiant soul have authority over your life. It's time to trust these parts of yourself that have been long hidden. It's a great mystery how the soul emerges and it is a process to be respected and revered. New earth is taking hold and it's now time to live your Soul Life.

AUGUST 2021: Golden Ring


"You've got to get to the stage in life where going for it is more important than winning or losing." - Author Ash

This is your life, your time to experience the opportunity to make this manifested world to be drenched with light, filled with Spirit, overflowing with joy and abiding in love. 

What a gift this life, at this time, like no other time in human history do we have the benefit rolling forward on the cosmic waves of the collective consciousness of humanity to guide us to the shores of Shamballa. 

We can do this. It's your life. If not you, then who? Go for and grab that Golden Ring. The ring takes many forms, but the essence comes from the Light of your own Soul. When the Light of your Soul is the indwelling presence of the divinity is made known to you, then all matter becomes spiritualized. 

If there is any capacity at all for it to be good, right, beautiful, functional, helpful, artful or inspirational, then it can be filled with Light, and it's essence can be made known to you. It's our job to shine the light, to put the good stuff in, to raise up and use our energy for the glory of this creation. 

When you go for the gold, you elevate this existence.. when you elevate this existence in consciousness... you bring heaven to earth. Let the beauty of true love become your essential reality in all that you encounter, including yourself.

JULY 2021: Opening to Dharma


“You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving.”  ― Amy Carmichael

A Bodhisattva is a being who has endured the path of suffering, has processed their karma and is in full realization of their darma. That is to say, now they are free to do their life's work which entails "going back" and helping others to attain that same freedom. They have transcended the need for death and rebirth because they have come to know themselves and consequently others so well, that there is nothing left to "die" to. In other words, they have come full circle within themselves. The illusion of physical reality has been put in its place and the power of the Higher Self has been fully integrated into the body. For the Bodhisattva, what is occurring on the physical level is very real, but it is not the end of the story.

The Bodhisattva knows that everything is energy, the power of the mind and the purpose of suffering.
Therefore the Bodhisattva's master purpose is to relieve the "needless" suffering of the world. This is done by becoming the embodiment or the "antidote" to a certain type of suffering, which arises as a result of the sufferer being locked into the mindset that physical reality is all there is. The Bodhisattva is well aware of and can work with non-local reality to hold the space for the suffering to move forward. The further along the Bodhisattva gets in grounding their energies into the physical, the more people they can assist to heal.

Opening to the experience of Bodhisattva is a very personal and powerful one on the path to healing, empowerment and enlightenment. You may think it is just for some. But let me assure you that this archetype is dead center on the path to freedom. So I'd like to show some practical ways to encourage and activate the energies of the Bodhisattva into your life.

My healing modality utilizes the power of archetypal energies, Light, color and visualization. One exercise to bring in the power of the Bodhisattva and to further develop and integrate those characteristics into our life is balancing, integrating, and interweaving the energies located at the Sacral Chakra. The sacral chakra holds in it's structure the gateway for us to express our creativity, passion and sexuality by activating our life force in readiness for manifestation. This is more or less where the Kundalini energy coalesces before it takes physical form, as is outpictured by the womb of a woman being the container for the growing human embryo.

There are two master archetypes that are working with us to teach us lessons and in layman's terms "running programs" within our psyche and energy body in the sacral chakra. They are the Martyr and the Emperor/Empress (or another name might be the Hedonist). These two powerful forces are neither good, nor bad in their own right. They just are. And yet, certainly one or the other can take dominance and help us spin our life out of control. The key lies in integrating these energies together. It might seem like an impossible task, considering how they seem to be polar opposites. It is important to understand that what will be created out of the merging of these energies within us, is yet a third thing: The Bodhisattva.

Imagine a venn diagram and you can see how this occurs. (A venn diagram is two circles which are drawn partially overlapping that creates a vertical eye shape where the two circles overlap.) This is exactly how these energies work together. Where we want to stay is in the space of that eye, where the two meet. This is where the Bodhisattva energies become active in our life. Sometimes we are moving into that space without consciousness. The purpose of this teaching is to help you move and stay in that space more often, ultimately operating your entire life from that middle path with full consciousness, focus and will.

The Bodhisattva has been there and done that....you can't play a player. It is very difficult to pull the wool over the eyes of someone who has admitted to the worst in their own self and has faced and continues to face their own fears and darkness. The Bodhisattva holds a great deal of light for this very reason; they are always shining the light of truth upon themselves. This release of their own suffering is what has made room in their aura and in their soul to hold these powerful energies. And it is in this way that they work with the archetype of martyr or the wounded healer. Yet, the wounded healer can be very dysfunctional all on their own. The wounded healer can help a great many people heal, but it is often at a great price and that is that this occurs sometimes through coyote medicine and they themselves are keeping their own woundedness in the dark by covering it with helping others.

The opposing force to the martyr is the emperor/empress or hedonist. The hedonist loves life, enjoys pleasure and makes sure that they are well taken care of, especially on the physical level. As you can imagine, the hedonist is a prime candidate for acting out addictions and aggression, while the martyr is the one who represses and "acts in", meaning most of their transgressions are committed against themselves.

Hopefully you can see how these two archetype could benefit by joining forces. The bottom line is that the martyr, who is willing to die for their cause needs to be balanced by the hedonist, who is willing to live for their cause. It is difficult to give what you do not have or know that you have. Therefore it is imperative in the development of the Bodhisattva that they begin to receive in order to share. This is where the power of the hedonist, put in check by the martyr can allow this new creature to emerge within: The Bodhisattva.

This is the middle way, the middle path and is a vital component to becoming a healthy altruist. These archetypes are very, very powerful. Working with an archetype is like downloading a program that bypasses sensory input. This is working energetically and on a soul level. Even if you don't understand, your soul or your psyche will.

A powerful method to integrate these energies is to do chakra balancing and healing work, concentrating especially at the sacral, root and solar plexis. Envision the color red at your feet up to your groin, now see the color yellow at your navel, allow these two color to merge at the womb area (below the navel) and see the color orange emerge. On your left side envision the martyr - even call to mind someone in real life or from history that you associate with this, and on your right side envision an emperor or empress. See each character in all their regalia. Allow these energies to permeate your mind. Now see them coming together in your womb area, and inside that color orange see them coming together and becoming one being. This is your Bodhisattva. Take this being and allow it to become as large as your physical body. See yourself heart to heart, face to face. Step into this being and allow yourself to feel the immense, wisdom, devotion, compassion and divine love as you mingle your energies.

You have now drawn the divine matrix for the Bodhisattva to emerge in your life. This will open the gates of glory in your life. The irony is that the word glory will take on a whole new meaning. The glory will be for the great work. The glory will be that you understand that you belong to the world and the world belongs to you. There is no separation and so there is no sacrifice. The giving and the receiving are inextricably combined. Abundance will flow and you will create or become a part of a powerful legacy. When the Bodhisattva, this royalty shows up in your life, you will be at a place where your loss of innocence, all you have been through will be coming full circle and your life force will be activated in a way that you can't possibly now imagine. The beauty of it all will be revealed and you will see the undeviating justice at work in the world as you fully claim your personal power for the highest good of us all.

May you walk in beauty. May you walk in peace. May you be overflowing with love and compassion as you create, integrate and embody your art, your work, your masterpiece in this world. They key is to feel like an empress and think like a martyr and you will be guided onto the middle path every time. This is the becoming of the Bodhisattva.

JUNE 2021: Collective Soul Consciousness



“Become conscious of being conscious.” ― Eckhart Tolle

There probably aren't too many people who haven't at least heard the term "new earth" and "collective soul". But many are unsure of what it might mean. People have lots of questions about it, with reactions spanning from excitedly looking forward to a more positive way of life,  to fear and anxiety over the deconstruction of broken, outdated systems that are no longer working and everything in between. Others wonder if they should buy into the doomsday and end times prophecies and speculate as to the survivability of humanity, let alone hold out hope for a new earth. Yet if we pay attention, even the most grounded of us can notice a shift that is happening in many subtle and some not so subtle ways.

You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you, and allowing that goodness to emerge.”  ― Eckhart Tolle

The new earth is mostly about a shift in consciousness. With more and more people on the planet who understand the power of their thoughts, feelings, beliefs and intentions, there has never been a greater ability to focus and create in the history of the world. Furthermore, not only can the individual wield the power of the mind, we have the ability to galvanize and unify hundreds, thousands and even millions of people in what often can be virtually an instant. As information goes viral, change can take place very rapidly and with immense amounts of support.

Even mainstream media is picking up on topics that they once shunned.... from shows about mediums and ghost hunters, to the Dog Whisperer and Super Nanny who respectively work with the energy of not just the dogs and the kids, but the people whom they belong to. And let's not forget Oprah's new focus on the world of inspiration, with shows like Super Soul Sunday featuring some of the most popular metaphysical, spiritual and motivational teachers of our time.

“You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.” 
― Eckhart Tolle

In the new earth paradigm we are no longer anonymous, we are present and accountable. We no longer isolate and suffer in silence, we reach out and connect to gain and gather experience, strength and hope. Our work is no longer solely focused upon making money, but on doing good in the world, bringing joy, healing and empowerment to others and trusting that the money will follow. The new earth is about absolute abundance and the release of poverty consciousness. As our notion of abundance is shifting, we no longer measure our wealth in dollars and sense alone, but in the intangibles of life, such as the fulfillment of our purpose, the quality of our relationships, natural resources, spiritual connection, personal and planetary peace, joy and love. It's definitely not business as usual.

“What a liberation to realize that the “voice in my head” is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that.”  ― Eckhart Tolle

The new earth is something that is simultaneously happening to us and through us. As  geographical communities become tighter and more tribal, we will be creating a sacred and stable foundation for each individual to find their own domain. Everyone is the leader of something and technology has now made it accessible and possible for anyone to access the interconnected web of souls and find their place in the global community. We no longer have to choose between local or global... we now have to learn to dance with it all and discern what is right for our soul's ultimate expression. The new earth supports the soul and it could be said that the new earth is the emergence of the soul of the world.

These are exciting and promising times that we live in. We've come a very long way and we've been given much. But to whom much is given, much is required. We are at a very delicate time in human history. Time is condensing and our ability to communicate and connect is escalating that effect. It's time now to take our technology and use it to save the earth and free ourselves from the limitations of the past. As we become increasingly more socially and soul conscious, we become connected to our own conscience and expand ourselves into the new earth energies of compassion and true love. It is in this way that we come into communion with all that is and experience the synergy of our individuality as part of a greater whole. And the result of this is heaven on earth. It's already here for many of us. After all if we are the ones we've been waiting for, why wait?

MAY 2021: The Great Mother

By those who love her she is readily seen,
And found by those who look for her...
In every thought of theirs,
she comes to meet them.
-Wisdom of Solomon 6:12 and 16 

This month we are working with the beauty of the "Great Mother", and exploring the power of Love-Wisdom. Sometimes wisdom has been personified as Sophia, the deep inner knowing that characterizes the life of "one who knows" God. On the Kabalistic Tree of Life, Wisdom is Chokmah, containing the seed of self, "I Am That", the wisdom beyond reason. Wisdom (Chokhmah) is therefore the first thing that the mind can grasp, and is therefore called a beginning or an idea. 

"The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells Wakan-Taka (the Great Spirit), and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us." - Nicholas Black Elk 

Solomon was a young man, about twenty years of age, when his father David died and he became king. A young man presented with the vast array of possibilities God offers could have been tempted in many different directions, yet he simply asked God for the most important thing he could think of—and God answered his prayer. “lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart” (1 Kings 3:12). 

Why did Solomon, known for the vast wealth of his kingdom and a great ability to create a working civilization, ask for wisdom? There are the typical and obvious answers to that question. But let's get into code... 

On the Kabalistic Tree of Life, Wisdom is Chokmah. As Keter was created from the reflection of Limitless Light, Chokmah is thus created from the reflection of Keter. It can be considered as the emergent self from the great All. Chokmah, containing the seed of self, can mean “I Am That”. Chochma is the wisdom beyond reason. According to Hasidic Judaism, Chokhmah refers to "the first power of conscious intellect within Creation. 

In CHOKMAH, corresponding to the Number TWO, comes the realization of this DUALITY, how by His Wisdom made He the Worlds from the Nothingness of His Own Being and how in the very CONSTANCY of this CHANGE lies the STABILITY of the Universe. As it is written, "In Chokmah CHANGE IS STABILITY."   The word Chokhmah itself may be broken into two words -- koach ("potential") and ma ("what is"). Thus, Chokhmah means "the potential of what is", or, "the potential to be. 

The sphere of Chokmah is the creative vessel, which holds the Divine Spark in preparation for it’s eventual initiatory experience of birth. It’s holy name YHVH, the Tetragrammaton *, means, “to be”. As the root of Fire, Chokmah is the first sphere of desire towards greater expression. Its consciousness is not bound by time or space as it resides in all time and all space. Chokmah is Action and impetus in its most pure aspect, not yet restricted and limited by the Formative and ordering energies of Binah.  “It is the Crown of Creation, the Splendour of Unity equaling it. It is exalted above every head, and it is named by the Qabalists as the Second Glory.” 

The symbol of the straight line is attributed to the sphere of Chokmah. In order to make sense of this we must also  include the energy of emanation from Kether.  According to mathematical theory a “point” is a marker of place, but in and of itself has no dimension. If, however, that point  extended into space it becomes a straight line. If we think of Kether as the point of space within the void of formlessness, its emanation outward towards Chokmah extends the point of itself to become a straight line that acts upon and emanates the flow of formless force into Chokmah.  

“ In Chokmah and Binah we have the archetypal Positive and Negative; the primordial Maleness and Femaleness, established while “countenance beheld not countenance” and manifestation was incipient.  It is from these primary Pairs of Opposites that the Pillars of the Universe spring, between which is woven the web of Manifestation.”  The Mystical Qabalah. Dion Fortune 

So in plain english it could be said that Wisdom is a divinely inspired idea, insight, or stroke of genius, even if you don't recognize it at the time. It is an inner directive, the hand that sets the dominos in motion to fall one after the other as in a palindrome. So the question here that we ask today is how do we access more of this wisdom? Let us explore this question. 

We have many tools to access these parts of ourselves. Imagination is our bridge into that supernal realm where heavenly, genius and useful ideas live. So it. would stand to reason that any activity that helps us access and even cross that bridge would support us in opening this powerful gateway within ourselves. Journaling, creative activity, reading, art, music are all ways in which we can access this realm. But how do you we speak the language? First of all this realm goes far beyond words, syntax and linear thought, so it is important that we get comfortable with symbology and imagery. This is the realm of the archetypal mind, the place where impartial patterns of imagery and sets of behavior form a kind of pictograph for the mind. A picture speaks a thousand words. So as we delve into this world through journeying, visualization, even paying closer attention to the visual and sensorial world we live in, reading metaphor and story are powerful ways to stimulate our ability to draw from this realm. 

Story is a part of the archetypal realm. When we re-write or write anew the story of our lives, this is our first foray into the deep inner wisdom of Sophia or Chokmah. This is how we gain the blueprint to make the magic. As we improve upon or co-create with our ancestors, and all that has come before as we access the wisdom of the Akashic record of the ages, we find ourselves with huge leg up. 

As we give up the notion that we must constantly re-invent the wheel, and understand that there are certain universal blueprints which will yield endless results, just as the 8 or 12 notes on a musical scale have rendered millions of songs, so too,can we find a start to the thing we came here to create. Surrendering to the divine within, the higher intelligence of Sophia is the key to opening this door within ourselves and co-creating with the divine. Our wisdom springs from Her. She is the wind beneath our wings if only we will allow, listen and let her love us. Let it be so!

Prayer for Sophia (Chockmah/Wisdom) 

I now ask Sophia to come into my life and show me the way. I ask her to cleanse me and remove any negativity in my life. Please lead me on the path I need to be on to establish myself as a happy, healthy, positive person. 

O Gnostic,
O Knower,
of the unity of Love and Wisdom,
the androgyny of Heaven and Earth,
and of Nature and Spirit. 

O Knower
of The Great Goddess,
The Great Mother,
who calls herself
Sophia. 

Holy is her name,
Sophia,
cocreator of all things,
earthly and divine.
Divine Love
lives with Eternal Wisdom,
together as one,
as a child in its mother's womb.
Sophia
gathers all of her children. 

O Gnostic,
to you she calls
to fulfill the prophecy,
to manifest the vision
of Peace on Earth. 

I call upon Sophia and her 3 daughters, Faith, Hope and Love 

Take oil and anoint yourself on the forehead: "Sophia, replace the negative thoughts with positive." 

the lips: "Sophia, replace the negative words with positive." 

the heart: "Sophia, replace the negative feelings with positive." 

the palms: "Sophia, replace the negative actions with positive." 

the feet: "Sophia, take me only on the path you lead me." 

I thank Sophia for coming into my life, my heart, my soul. For leading me on the right path and bringing me to a more positive place in my life.

There is a great silent, sacred space within me.
As I learn to listen to the still, small voice within knowledge becomes wisdom.
As the wise one within guides and guards me, life becomes smooth.
As life becomes smooth, I get into the flow of creation.
As silence is experienced through my soul, I can hear my higher self.
I learn to trust and follow the instruction of my soul.
I ask for higher vision to help me see only love.
I acknowledge and sit with my pain and the pain of others close to me.
I release drama, so that I may clearly address the painful issues in my life.
I release myself from old stories that are no longer true in my life.
I allow myself to move into higher consciousness.
Higher consciousness opens me to more love.
I am aware of my soul’s emergence.
My body is a temple, my heart the altar of my soul.
I am open to experiencing my life by letting go.
Letting go of control gives me the freedom that my soul desires and requires to flourish and grow.
The wheel of life keeps moving and changing, and evolving me along with it.
I am defined in this time and space by the story of my life.
I bring my life into integrity by insisting on the truth.
I tell myself the truth and admit when I misunderstand or judge.
One of the most loving things I can do for myself is to face my problems with power versus force.
I ask in every situation what would empower love to come forth.
I make it safe for others to be authentic.
I allow everyone to experience their own journey without my judgment holding them to their old story.
I remember myself into being and rewrite the story of my life.
I experience the wonder of my soul’s journey.
Inside of me is wisdom born of true love.

We came here to shine our light. But first we have had to master this high and fine art to allow for the temperance of such brilliance so that we could learn how to work together. For we find here that shining our light to blind, exclude or compete with others is not what we came for. In other words, before we could really shine our light, we have had to experience the loneliness of our own omnipotence, in favor of taking a stand for our own unique desires and destiny, and looking at the power of going deep versus wide to express our own soul's purpose. Ironically, as we step outside of reductionist, linear time and thought, and into the fullness of fractal time and the realm of soul and spirit, we start to fully understand the gift of this physical world, and our embodiment takes on a whole new meaning. 

The darkness of our world awaits you -- not to engulf you, but to be transformed by you. ~ Neale Donald Walsch 

The possibilities of an age of peace, enlightenment, artistry, creativity, unity in diversity, true appreciation for the earth and for the human condition can feel a bit like a fairy tale come true. Some of us are finally seeing how it is even possible to enjoy the journey, and not focus on the destination.  Can you imagine how sad we must have been to have to compete and bump up against each each other in order to reveal our unique soul's purpose to ourselves? We had to individuate, as this was and is our fate, but our true destiny is to re-unite and bring our great I AM presence back to the whole to honor each other. Humanity has finally "earned" through its own innovations, creations and evolution to come back into the garden.... and the garden is right here and right now ... on earth... with each other. 

Truth be told, more people than ever before in the history of the world have the ability to find their tribe... to find their kindred spirits and to become empowered spheres of influence in their own right. This is the legacy of creators gods and goddesses in the making. It is our birthright to step into the glory of the work of a true creator. Like our maker who was so patient with this work in progress called humanity, we must also extend this grace to ourselves, as we continue to emerge and evolve our higher selves into being. Could it just be that this new era of social consciousness is both too good and true? 

"You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own blessings." - Unknown 

Although these new sensories, skills and ways of being are not without their own set of new rules and potentials, as well as pitfalls, the vast majority of the way has been cleared for both lift off and a grounding of this new energy. The antidote for any discomfort as we acclimate is to continue to do our clearing and recovery work so that we can come into complete integrity with ourselves and others. This transparency that is phasing in, after all, is what we've wanted all along. For true intimacy and co-creation requires a measure of vulnerability that we may not have felt safe enough to express.To truly be seen we must reveal what is in our hearts. We must be strong within ourselves to reveal our tender hearts to each other and to the world. In the new earth, our love is our boundaries and our protection is our love.... and our joy is the artful expression of our life's purpose... whatever that may look like, even as it changes and grows. We must come to understand that we have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of our own blessings and our own ability to bless others. 

“It is now your responsibility to nourish the qualities that are in you to create the luminous and glorious life that you desire. From your heart, radiate all this Love for humanity. Share your Joy.” - Sai Maa 

A new age of originality and creativity is upon us, a renaissance of the highest order, giving license to the individual to shine on the world stage right in the comfort of our own hometown. Now we live locally, but think globally. Literally, the world is our oyster. We can have the best of both worlds and find that this duality is merging to form a synergistic blend of all that is good and right. The eternal will to good makes manifest delight and joy in our lives now. We must move forward now, even as some still suffer. For we truly know that misery loves company, which means that any subscription to that channel keeps it alive. This does not mean that we ignore the suffering of others, and the systems that are up for change. On the contrary, our creative solutions have never been more necessary. For this new earth won't respond to force. It is our power that we must source to create heaven on earth by our own action. 

So let your light shine, let love live through you...for yourself, for your family, for your tribe and for the world. After all...It's what we came for.

Field Guide Workbook

BECOME AN ADDICTION ALCHEMY FIELD GUIDE 
Spiritual Emergence or Spiritual Emergency... what will you choose? Help yourself and  others learn how to use the Universal Medicine Wheel as a life compass to find direction and momentum on your journey. Learn experientially by doing... to lead your own Addiction Alchemy Inner Journey gatherings. Help us bring this powerful tool to people everywhere, as a grassroots movement to go Beyond Sobriety and Beyond Anonymity. All recovery is Soul Recovery.

HOW THIS WORKS...
The Addiction Alchemy Universal Medicine Wheel Inner Journey can help bring your body, mind and spirit back into a state of harmony, reconnecting you to parts of your SELF that have been forgotten or are evolving, re-establishing the knowledge of your interconnection to all that is. Using the process of life itself, people, animals, the earth and all our relationships we rediscover who and what we truly are.

In the INNER JOURNEY gatherings you "Become The Tracker" in your own life, learning how to read spiritual messages that are all around you, tap into the power of animal guides and archetypes, learn about Sacred Ceremony, working with the Land, Prayer, Meditation and Intention, Music, Energy Work, Creativity and what is required to bring your consciousness into wholeness, through the map of the Universal Medicine Wheel.

Finding and opening to your personal medicine means that you are stepping into your purpose. Nothing restores power like knowing who you are and being in right relationship with yourself and all that is. The Universal Medicine Wheel provides the forum and the framework to draw together true communities and raise up the Medicine People of those communities to become empowered in a humble and good way to take their rightful place as spiritual stewards.

As you feel called to lead your own circles, you embark in the initiatory process of serving your community in spiritual partnership as soul groups. Serving in this way, drawn together through the Universal Medicine Wheel and a spiritual guide or animal totem, brings great inner power to the people, which brings not only healing, but enlightenment, peace and true love to all.

Addiction Alchemy and the Universal Recovery Medicine Wheel doesn't directly approach addictions per se, but rather acknowledges the process of addiction within all of our lives, focusing on the remembrance of all the parts of the self to restore wholeness. We all have ancient, ancestral or karmic ties and attachments, patterns and imprints. We believe that all recovery is a recovery of the True Self...and it is from this place that true healing and growth occur. Soul Recovery is Soul Retrieval.

Addiction Alchemy Field Guide Workbook is a 79 pages guide, which includes a Quick Reference Outline, Resources and the Adduction Alchemy Inner Journey Worksheets which you may duplicate or purchase in bulk on our website.
