Getting In Touch With Our Spirit Guides

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
have you ever wondered how some people feel so sure about the presence of spirit guides in their life and others are not? The answer could be as simple as a higher awareness for the most commun signes for spirit guides to be in the presence of human beings. Here are a couple of signes that have been reported by many people to be their experience in such situations. 

1.) You sense changes in the air:
Sometimes while we are engaged in a random everyday life activity, we suddenly feel with inner clarity – I am not alone in the room, even when you physically obviously are alone. This other presence could trigger feelings of anticipation, of excitement without knowing why, or an inner peace you had not felt just a minute ago! You might experience a sudden explosion of faith, safety and clarity that you are loved. Also a lot of people feel a change of temperature. When you are in a closed room, with no window open and no wind blowing and all of the sudden you feel a wall of warm & cozy, or fresh & chill air in the room – that is a Spirit Guide.
Now, if you are new to talking to forces from the other world, know that there is no reason to be afraid!!!! They are not coming to do anything to you, that you don’t want them to do!! You always have the right for free will!! Should it ever happen that you feel uncomfortable with an appearing being, simple shout out “Identify yourself or go”, do that 3 times and it will disappear, if it was an energy field with negative intention.
As for your Guides, treat them like any other friend at your door! Invite them in!! Ask for their name, share your day….

2.) Vivid Dreams
When we get attuned to higher energies, more and more doors in our subconscious open for bigger receptiveness. But as most people in the world today have a very full schedule and engage in far to many daily 3d activities, it sometimes is easier for your guides to make their way into your dreams – than to reach your awareness during the day.
So when our connection increases, often our dreams get far more vivid. You could see colors, where before there was only black and white. The storybook of your dreams may become much more complex. And sometimes you will have the same dream over and over again. This is because sometimes our subconscious needs several turns, to be able to tune into the deeper sense of their message. You can compare it to a real good movie that you watch for the 5th time and still see details, you did not notice in the viewings before.

3.) Repeating Lyrics
This is my personal favorite of all the ways I saw guides taking, to reach the human’s ear with their sound of guidance. It is a pleasure I experienced all my lifetime. I am talking about a song…. a random melody,… and its lyrics.. repeatedly being played in every radio you pass by, in the home of a friend – the moment you enter the door, its the background music of a shop – but most importantly – in your head. If this is happening to you, if you sound or sing a song in your head over and over again, maybe even find yourself repeating just one single phrase – pay attention to the lyrics!!!!
If you don’t know them – go on internet and find out. If you don’t like them – embrace them!! This lines have something profound to do with YOUR LIFE!!! They might tell you about a challenge you just overcame. They might tell you about a desire, still waiting in your soul to be released into the open. Or they might whisper to you about a future manifestation, jet to be dreamed about.. so it may come into materialization for you.. What ever it is, this lyrics have something important to tell you about yourself!!!4.) Synchronicity
I would probably call this my second favorite, because it involves interaction with others. Synchronicity is a feeling like everything clicking into gear and aligning in a way, you could never have predicted before. The outcome is bringing simplicity and ease into our life. Just yesterday we had the perfect little triangle Synchronicity on facebook. A friend commented on a post, requesting music. While I looked up a link to share, a second friend commented with the same request. I posted the music and the second answered laughing, that she just listened to exactly this piece. At the same moment she posted another link with music and… you can probably guess it by now… the first friend answered with LOL.. I just finished listening to this piece…
Three women.. three songs.. triangle closed.. perfect synchronicity..

5.) Crown Chakra Activity
Some Spirit Guides chose to get your attention with the creation of several physical sensations. You might experience a tingling on the top of your head, the point where your crown chakra is sitting. An itching of your head or even a strong pressure – only slightly different from a normal headache. But not only our crown is an interesting spot to connect with you, also our pineal gland (the third eye) is of biggest importance.
You see, the crown has the ability to receive downloads of energy frequencies to alter our awareness, but the pineal gland knows everything about dreaming your world into reality, about inspiration, visions, intuitive receptiveness and more. So make sure your body is clear of toxins, choose healthy salt versions and change your water and toothpaste to a FLUORIDE FREE brand!!!

6.) 333, 3333
Especially during this last Month of September, the amount of people who reported their increasing awareness of repeating number sequences, was mind blowing for me! Constantly people started noticing numbers in sets of three or four. All of the sudden it looked like for the whole human collective, everything turned into a number messenger of the divine forces. Every time looking at a clock, every license plate, the address you where send to – to get the job you so desired since a long time, being added to a brand new group on facebook – I was member 777,…..
The simple explanation is, the blueprint of the universe can be decoded by understanding their energy frequency true your sensory self. This is what we have to study. The Number 3 is representing the force of the divine feminine energy and it is the number of the Ascended Masters. If you repeatedly see number sequences of 3s, the Masters are trying to invite you into a more conscious relationship with them.

7.) Meeting a person over and over again
Have you ever experienced that you run into the same person in the most random places, in the weirdest of places, in a different city, on an airplane?? It can be that you notice again and again the same face of a stranger in the crowd, or that you meet someone you know but never really engaged with. If this is happening you are asked to be brave and walk up to this person and make contact. They just might have the most important message of the day for you!!!Dear Friends, I hope this list will help you identify a guidance, a spirit guide or a hint from the universe, when you are the next time in such a situation in daily life. May you feel safe and loved in the arms of so much divine presence!!
Lots of Love and Blessings!
Edith

6 Spirit Guides From The Animal Kingdom That Enjoy Mating For Life

ghby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
yesterday after sharing my article on
How Indigenous Wisdom, Shamanism, Environmentalism & Our Awakening Meet” I ran into this beautiful post from the White Wolf Pack page, about 10 animals who mate for life. Now some of you might remember  that the last Taurus New Moon brought us the energy field and possibility for a love that lasts. So reading about the beloved animal kingdoms representatives who mate for life, it was immediately visible that 6 out of the 10 examples are also animals well known as helper for humanity. Day by day now, we are collectively tapping deeper into the awareness that we share our reality not only with other people, but also with the Animal Kingdom. More and more people receive messages by the other world, transported by animal spirits.

 A personal message to all my facebook friends!! FB is limiting the distribution of my posts daily more. If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!! Over time I might not be able to put in the FB time, if it does not lead to what it is about – SPREADING THE WORD ;-)!

Over the last few month the spirit guides and angelic realm have dropped hints, that we collectively need to make a deeper inner connection with mother earth and our own human nature. With this profounder union in our bones and the chances for love that lasts, I am happy to introduce you to the characteristics of six animal spirit guides that enjoy having a mate for life!wol1.) The Wolfs
One of the most outstanding qualities of the Wolf is the ability of community building. Wolf packs are socially smart, deeply structured and highly organized animal communities. Indeed the wolf can energetically transmit to us, the understanding how Brotherhood of Men works, when we take the deeper animal nature of human beings into account. They can teach us how to stand our ground and defend our boundaries in an appropriate, not hurtful and clear way. An expression that still allows us to keep by heart relaying to another, when our opinions and personal needs go apart. Qualities we need if we want to ground a “love that lasts”. Wolfs have an air of inner freedom to them, even that they are deeply loyal and emotional intelligent in their relationships. Skills we need for the Golden Age of Love!1A_12.) The Eagles
Eagles are messenger from the divine blueprint of our spiritual path on planet earth. Well known about this animals usual behavior is, that when trouble come down on us on planet earth, they simply rise and soar above all clouds. With this strength, they are helping us to develop states of higher consciousness, higher powers of communication and the ability to listen carefully to our intuition. Supported by the eagle medicine we are empowered to deeply ground our spiritual awareness, to purify our energy field and cleans old believe pattern. The eagle reminds us to integrate the awareness of the Hermetic Laws in our life, that all things material are build from the mind.beaver3.) The Beavers
Beaver are the ingenious builder and constructor of new realities with stable foundations. They are representing the power how to step by step come from visions, burning desires, soul dream and insights; to an as stable experienced reality, that represents all this guidance in our life. They give us the encouragement and inspiration that we need, in order to reach our deepest desires and soul goals. Beaver are big team player in general, maybe that is why they have happy marriages ;-). They know how to make everyone in the team feel appreciated, respected and used according to their personal skills. Quite important abilities to develop for humanity too, in the collective awakening process.coyote4.) The Coyotes
Personally I love the Coyote energy. I called my first dog Coyote for his cheeky character and childlike playfulness, even in old age. The Coyote is the clown of the nature realms, known for his trickster, shape-shifter, and transformer qualities. The Coyote tells us to be mindful of the impact of the hermetic laws in our actions. To raise our awareness for the inner self-sabotage system, that allows us to play tricks on ourselves and others (the illusion of Maya). Coyote also reminds us that the consequences of our actions effect more than just ourselves, as we are truly one on this planet and beyond. In his playful ways, he brings along endings and new beginnings, and therefor represents the cycle of life and death in nature.ra5.) The Ravens
The Ravens are representatives of the divine magic within the material world. They bring us higher awareness of the divine balance between the light and the dark side of existence. Wise as they are, they are master of the time and space continuum. A bridge between the underworld, the present moment on planet earth and the spirit realms. When in tune with the ravens medicine, we are moving through transitions and changes of consciousness more smoothly and from a place of inner ease. Profound healing created by the renewal of our energy are possible under the influence of the raven power. condor6.) The Condors/New World Vultures
The vulture is all about rising to higher awareness, patience and resourcefulness. Like most of us, vultures like eating well, but they do not hunt! What they know to do best, it to seizes the chances and resources that show themselves as available. From them we can learn how to go from “working hard” for our dreams and soul desires; to allowing them to present themselves to us!! When we have the passion and clarity to plant our seeds well, the vulture medicine will help us develop the patience it takes, to receive. When we are about to develop new abilities or projects, the vulture is also bringing message to make sure we check our core values before we call new beginnings into manifestation! Vultures have well developed physical senses. They can smell fresh meat from miles away and have highly advanced vision. Connecting with the vulture medicine remembers us to trust our body, to also develop our higher physical senses and become one with nature within.

Dear Ones, I hope you enjoy this insides and find maybe also some guidance for your personal path in them. I hope you are motivated and will have fun developing a relationship with the animal spirit guides. Let your body teach you, motivated by the animal kingdoms loving guidance!
Love and Nature Blessings!!

Synchronicity, Number Sequences & Angel Messages
In this very special time of our transition into the Golden Age of Aquarius, synchronicity for the human collective is aligning with the universal number language. What does that mean? It means that timelines open, and for thousands of people the energetic understanding of number sequences (as 222,333,444,11:11,…), sacred geometries and even music (when composing music, you can choose to write it down either in a note or in a number and every musician can read it that way – it is the direct translation of “everything is vibration”) will grow.

The Ascended Masters are basically humanity’s elder brothers and sisters, beings of light supporting the ascension process of the human collective as well as of the individual. Most of them walked the planet for many lifetimes, refining their light body through the practice of constant energetic awareness. Read here the full article!!lkhigh

6 Abilities an Awakened Man desires in a woman

An man on the awakening path, needs a woman who knows herself. A woman who clearly is aware of her core values, strong and centered enough not to change – just to be with him. A woman who does not feel the need to prove herself to anyone. Not to him, not to the outside world. A woman who knows how to communicate, live and share her desires. He will be grateful to her, as long as she shares her true authentic self with him. The loving, inspiring and embracing parts of your true being, as much as the challenging and not so comforting parts. A woman willing to take full responsibility for her being, and her own feelings.

Recognizing Divine Energy Pattern – December 11th New Moon Example

bre

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
I shared this post before, but realized I have not expressed myself correctly about its insides. The most fascinating thing about the following stories is, that we can train our eyes to see the blueprint for the collective divine plan, by hearing about their similarities. In this case by the example of the energy field of the upcoming Sagittarius New Moon on December 11th.  A little while ago, I mentioned in a post that I was attending a Community Forum Facilitator Workshop, with a hand full of other people from my community. It was an impressive experience for all of us and, thanks to the divine plan, we where just at the right time in the right place, to be inflamed by the collective desire for world peace and a new relationship paradigm on all levels of living. So we gathered again on last Friday to dig deeper. Here is what happened next:

Right after our meeting, I was just starting to prepare the New Moon Report for you guys, when I noticed that most themes we spoke about, as well as all events that had happened in my household in the morning, are written in the stars for this upcoming Moon event. For me this was just another sign of confirmation that Highly Sensitive People, Indigo Children (like many in the group are) and Empathic People (a trait that all people in the group share) often are effected by the collective energy shifts provided by heavens, some days before they actually occur. That has a very simple reason. Many of this talented personality types are supposed to develop their personal power right now and understand, it is part of our divine purpose to go thru the energetic  impacts before the collective is effected by them, so we can hold the energy for the masses – when the actual event hits the ground.aatSo allow me to go a bit into the details of what showed itself to be true for:
1.) In our first exercise we were invited to find a partner, go into our inner peaceful place, make contact, and than spontaneously tell the other “something that is true for us right now”. The very first thing I blurred out to my first partner was “ there is so much freedom born inside of me and in the world right now. Over the coming two hours of sharing, 80% of the people present told us a personal story about breaking into new feelings and dimensions of Inner Freedom, that had happened for them in the last days. Each and everyone a completely different manifested expression of this freedom, but each and every one – the same theme, the same realization for immense new opportunities.
From the moon report: This Moon is about Freedom.

2.) One of the incredible blessings we experience together, is that the group has found a common ground of openness and trust very quickly. Our sharing go deep and are allowed to turn out quite emotional. A community member talked about changing her life profoundly in this moment of time. That the energetic power to make this cut came in during the last days and how new, the path she chose, feels to her. That she experiences the endings she is choosing with such grace, that she is moving into her new beginnings with an open and loving heart, free of bitterness, fight or resentment about the change. What an amazing place to be!!! What a beautiful, personal expression of desire for world peace as well.
From the moon report: You can make graceful changes in your life.

3.) Like I mentioned before, already in our first 3 day Forum exchange, we had come to a point of trust and “harmonizing as a group”, that allowed us to generate a lot of energy for the things we feel as our souls desire. Some of this themes are the same for many of the group, some are absolutely individual – as the soul path of every person in the group demands. Each of us has taken first steps into new directions since the last meeting and now shared our ups and downs, hopes and doubts and the directions we want to try next for our lives. What again 100% of the group expressed was, that our general trust and will to follow the gentle voice of our intuition and inner knowing, had increased since our last come together.
From the moon report: Trust your inner knowing. Trust your intuition.fd4.) One thing I especially noticed in today’s interactions, was the increased intensity in the sound of our voices. All of us where talking in each and every sharing not only from a place of honesty, authenticity and self-reflection, but also from a deep “root fire of passion”, that vibrated in the sounds we made, the songs we sang and the frequencies our stories where sending into the sacred space we had created. It was a pleasure to simply watch us in action and see the “holy fire of passion for life”, collectively burn in our individual eyes.
From the moon report: This energy is like fresh air, infusing you with a new passion.

5.) Last but not least, another 100% score in our group, the desire for community building, for equality in our inner circles (to make balance extend to the outside circles over time). The wish to understand how our new spiritual values and human flesh, blood and feeling existence, can fit together and can be brought into realization in the world right now. The individual scream for a family that is chosen from the soul, and shows itself by the traits and qualities the people are bringing into the mix of this groups collective creation.
From the moon report: You empower people when you live your best life. That is walk your talk.

Dear Friends I hope this reflections are steering your passion and confidence to feel into the many expressions the collective energies find in your life right now. That it will open your eyes for the gentle visions, the divine imprint is sending out. That you can embrace the blissful energies equally to the irritations, with all your heart, your inner fire and self-confidence. I can’t even find words to express how blessed I feel for this moment of my life, where I see the things I longed for, the visions I held in my heart and my energy field for so many years, unfold in front of my eyes. May we all be blessed with flashing insides, deep connections and loving hearts here and beyond the veil.
Love and New Moon Smiles :-)!!!

Personal Freedom – Faith – Holy Passion & Self-Empowerment

9by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
last week I mentioned in my post, that I was attending a Community Forum Facilitator Workshop, with a hand full of other people from my community. It was an impressive experience for all of us and, thanks to the divine plan, we where just at the right time in the right place, to be inflamed by the collective energies for world peace and a new relationship paradigm on all levels of living. The first outcome is that already today, after only two weeks, we gathered again to train our new learned tools and exchange about our development. An experience, that immediately unveiled mutual themes between the people present in our group.

Right after our meeting, I was just starting to prepare the New Moon Report for you guys (which now will be ready as tomorrows post), when I noticed that most themes we spoke about, as well as all events that had happened in my household in the morning, are written in the stars for this upcoming Moon event.

The Ten Attributes of Shamanism

schotDear Friends,
I am just so lucky and blessed how the world works for me, i have to all the time share – in order not to burst ;-)!! After my last two posts about how a shaman works with the blessings of the physical body as divine temple of growing consciousness, and the “10 signs you are called to be a Western Shaman“, there have been a few comments that this ideas could be understood as racist or offensive to indigenous shamans. So lucky as I am, the minute I read the comments, I also pumped into this wonderful article. It describes perfectly how shamanic practices have not only been used for thousands of years all over the world, and therefor are not at all region or culture specific or limited, but also does it shows that shamanic working people all over the world – show the same attributes. I hope you enjoy her piece as much as I did!!
Blessings and Good Guidance on your Path!!
Edith

Article by Jone Forest Mage:
As a contemporary shaman living in the urban setting of Chicago, people often ask me, “What is shamanism?” and “How is shamanism different from other forms of meditation and energy work such as Reiki, chi gong, prayer or creative visualization?” Shamanism is an ancient form of spiritual healing that has been practiced by virtually every culture in the world throughout all of human history. Some people think of it as the origin of all other forms of spiritual expression and energy work. Your image of shamanism may be of indigenous peoples drumming, singing and dancing in rituals to create healing. There are cave paintings in Europe created 40,000 years ago which depict shamanic-style healing rituals, and it’s likely that shamanic practices are even older than that. Many people think shamanism is exclusively a Native American tradition, but it is actually found all over the world. In fact, the word shaman comes from the Tungus tribe of Siberia. Shamanic practices are well known in India, Korea, Africa, Britain, and Australia, among many other places. Both men and women throughout the ages have been shamans. Shamanic healing works on the principle of restoring the vital energy, or soul.
The classic example is when an individual has lost parts of his or her soul due to traumatic events in life such as accidents, major illness, physical, sexual or emotional abuse or the loss of a loved one. To remedy this, the shamanic practitioner performs a soul retrieval healing, by doing a shamanic “journey” meditation to find and return lost parts of the client’s energy (“soul parts”). However, shamanic healing is not limited to soul retrieval, or only to the healing of the individual person. It also includes mending the broken ties of community on every level: within human society, with nature and with the spirit realm. This may mean restoring the connection an individual has to her body; encouraging a dialogue among the various soul parts within an individual; introducing a person to his spirit guides; connecting a client to the more-than-human matrix of nature; or helping a person find her expressive “voice” through singing and dancing. Shamanism shares many traits with other forms of prayer and energy work, but we can identify ten characteristic ways of working in shamanism. Not every shaman works with all of them, but the more of the ten you see in a practitioner’s work, the more that practitioner is shamanic in his or her approach. 5The Ten Attributes are:
1.) Works with spirit realm and spirit guides – Shamanism deals with going into altered states of consciousness to find healing and wisdom. In this altered state, we perceive all existence as being a big energetic field. The world is filled with spiritual beings and energies: angels, ancestors, totem, animals, gods, goddesses, nature spirits. These helpful spirits guide us to healing and wisdom.

2.) Heals through shifting energy – As contemporary shaman Bradford Keeney says, “Shamanism has nothing to do with how many beads someone has on a costume. The goal of the shamanic practitioner is to shift energy.” Healing is accomplished through returning energy that has been lost or unblocking the flow of energy, which may happen through direct energetic healing or through gaining information.

3.) Solves problems in daily life – shamanic work is not about simply having visions of the spirit realm, but to help self and others gain healing and wisdom in our daily lives. We work in concert with the spirits to improve the whole Web of Life.

4.) Travel out of body to the 3 Worlds– shamanic work involves “journeying” out of body into the spirit realm to work with the spirit guides for healing and guidance. Journeying is done to three different Worlds or planes of existence: the Upperworld, Middleworld and Lowerworld. The typical vision is to go through a tunnel, come into a place of nature (Journey Center) where you meet your team of spirit guides to ask for healing or information.

5.) Empowers the soul – shamanism heals and empowers the soul, which is the vital essence or unique individual Self. Through healing and restoring this spiritual power, many physical, mental and emotional issues are resolved. Soul is in between ego and spirit. Ego is the surface and limited sense of self, while spirit is the Great Cosmic “Soup” of all energy that encompasses all that is. Soul is what you came to this lifetime to accomplish: all the talents and the mission you were born with to contribute to the world.
23a6.) Heals the Web of Life – shamanic healing is not only about healing the individual, but equally includes healing human society, the spirit realm and nature: the whole Cosmic Web of Life. Some shamans work almost exclusively healing nature, or with the spirit realm.

7.) Grounded in nature – the shamanic practitioner gratefully utilizes the powers of nature for healing, transformation and restoration of energy and to stay grounded in the physical plane.

8.) Grounded in the body– shamanic work is not just about having mental visions nor does it try to transcend the body. It addresses feelings and intuitions from within the body and heals what psychologists would call psychosomatic issues.

9.) Grounded in expressive arts – shamans throughout the ages have used singing, dancing, drumming, storytelling and visual art as ways of shifting energy, expressing their visions and creating healing. The healing that shamans perform encompasses the work done in such modern healing modalities as movement therapy, sound healing, psychodrama and color therapy.

10.) Face shadow side – shamanic healing often confronts the “shadow side”, drawing out the full range of energies and emotions including anger, sadness and fear to create cathartic healing.

7 Signs Your Calling Is To Actively Transform Human Consciousness

34by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
the last two days I shared with you how it feels to find your personal healing way as a Western Shaman, when left without advice and training. Many who found their personal path over the last few years, are by now working as Healer and Therapists, supporting the collective transformation of human consciousness. But there are more contracts out their in this big universe, than becoming a Shaman. Many are called to find their own simple, effective ways in their everyday life, to become an active flame of change and evolution within the human collective.

Here are 7 signs that you are called to consciously transform Human Consciousness:
1.) Do you sense that something is out of balance and alignment in the world right now? Do you feel a burning desire to be a part of the solution? Do you receive visions of the Golden Age of Aquarius, a more beautiful, authentic and collectively happy time for all humanity? Do you feel like it is your sacred purpose or divine calling, to help bring it into being?

2.) Have you ever had an experience of life-altering impact, that completely changed the direction of your life, and transformed you forever? Do you feel like this event maybe even only happened to you, so you can use that experience to help others? Do you sense already how this help possible could look like?

3.) While you feel drawn to support the human collective evolution and feel capable to do so, you can get very easily drained by to much social contact or in general by bigger groups of people. Especially to listen to superficial communication, feels like it takes the life out of you. You need regular periods of solitude to “charge up the batteries” your inner connection with “SELF”.

4.) You might also be born with the gifts of a visionary, and receive advice from your spirit guides for innovative ideas that could make the world collectively a better place. Often this innovative visions are circling around human health, the development of medical tools, social improvement, the preservation of the earth and community building.475.) You are in a mysterious love affair with the abundant colors of life, and the way they make you feel. Especially violet, royal blue, baby pink, gold and green are attractive for you. You might even have an inner picture or an inner feeling for a violet or internal golden light, when ever you use your mind to create transformation for the world.

6.) You feel an intense connection with certain types of natural environments, such as the ocean, mountains, or forest. You have a deep love for plants and love spending time with gardening, to the point that you can feel empty or depressed without the chance to be among nature. You might even feel the urge to prevent plants from suffering and pain.

7.) Over the last years, especially since the end of the Mayan Calendar, you constantly feel that the mission you are sensing, is getting closer and closer to be unveiled. We are a very big collective in this moment of time and the transformation of us, this massive mass, is limited to a certain time-frame. That is the reason why people with such a calling, are feeling time pressuring them to evolve. It is true, the “team change” needs every member that can possible manage to awaken!! So get up!!!

Beloved once, if you find yourself in resonance with the things you heard, than it might be time for you to contemplate your personal ways of healing. Your deepest desires for change within the human collective, into the Golden Age of Humanity. When you found your truth – start walking your path, sharing your passion, and the perfect people to fulfill your dreams with, will show up to support your journey! I hope my words will inspire you to take a chance and make a leap of faith, into the unfolding of your amazing personal abilities!!! Love and Blessings
Edith

Sexuality, Shamanism and Community

aaaDear Friends,
I so very much enjoyed reading this article. It is lovely written and  provides downloads of authentic energy. In my daily experience as a human being on planet earth, who translates divine existence into human expression I feel blessed and happy to stand at  “ the point where polarities meet, between the ordinary and non-ordinary, day and night, life and death”. It is a good place to be. It is where life happens, where obstacles turn into opportunities and an old way of living can end, for the blessing of a new beginning :-)! Enjoy the article and may your powers return and your inner shaman guide you home!
Blessings, Love and Light! Edith

For ages on our planet conflicts around sex issues have been a major cause of sufferance, addiction and frustration. As we move into a path of rapid spiritual reawakening it is vital to acknowledge these wounds and strenuously promote ways to heal them. Shamanically each human being, no matter how conditioned or unaware, is an inherent part of the web of life. This means that together with their separated personality, they experience the interaction with a multidimensional identity, which is their true self. When more individuals join together with the intent of giving creative space to their true multidimensional nature, they amplify the access to the web of life and the unity of human consciousness, creating the conditions for radical healing shifts in human values.
The first step in the above respect entails fully acknowledging sexual conflicts, frustrations and grievances, allowing each party to express their feelings, without rushing a resolution of the issues themselves. This implies that transparency and the availability to release are the primary steps in healing, together with the capacity of translating sexual personal history into sexual collective history, which means thinking in terms of the global community, instead of our personality. From a multidimensional and shamanic perspective I regard sex as a symbolic representation of the energy pervading the web of life, often described as an ongoing multi-dimensional intercourse between the earth and the sky, the seen and the unseen.
Many healers and also ordinary, yet highly sensitive, people stand on the threshold of this copulation, right in the point where polarities meet, between the ordinary and non-ordinary, day and night, life and death. Whether they know it or not, they are intensely tied to the essence of creation, stirring up the energy and using it to sustain the web of life. They are involved in healing soul-fragmentation, which is the result of belief systems based on separation and the cause of all fears held in our culture. People who are aware of this healing process work at an archetypal or collective level, as opposed to the personal or self-centered levels most individuals operate from. As a result, they constantly move to different ways of perceiving and using sex energy. Due to the conventional denial and distortion of such themes, this can be unsettling for them and their relationships.astroshamanismWorking shamanic and multidimensional with sexual energy does not necessarily imply promiscuity or even having sexual intercourse. Due to its controversial implications many people on this path have firm boundaries around sex and even observe vows of abstinence. Multidimensional sex is not necessarily Tantra or Taoist eroticism, which involves conscious manipulation of sexual energy. It is based on the experience that ordinary love-making, sensuality and also mere sexual fantasies are potentially conducive to healing states of consciousness and to the emergence of multidimensional awareness. This is the experience of many common people, who out of the blue, without warning or predetermined intention, find themselves in expanded states of consciousness when having sexual experiences. They move into other worlds, accessing spaces of deep peace and ecstasy. And in doing so they forget about their partners, and may feel puzzled, ashamed and unable to share or understand their experience when they return. Sexual energy can be a sacred gateway leading beyond consensus reality, right into our core multidimensional identity. Sexual energy, when properly used, can shatter our separated perception of life, unveiling an ecstatic experience a billion times stronger than the most desirable orgasm.
This is why sex is so heavily manipulated, repressed and misunderstood. Yet here sex is not at all the taboo. The greatest taboo is the experience of ecstasy, the mystery of death, the release of our human separated reality and the unveiling of our multi-dimensional nature. Sexual interaction involves enormous exchanges of energy. Apart from the conscious reality of those who seem to be involved there is much more going on, which is what creates the energy. Most relevant forces are engaged in sexual activity, yet we miss their impact if sex is approached with lack of awareness. The sexual union provides a multi-dimensional evidence of unity, encompassing the physical, the emotional, the mental and the spiritual body. Since as human beings we officially identify ourselves only through our physical body, major issues often develop when individuals misunderstand their experiences or interrupt their relationships.
Acknowledgment and awareness regarding sex is a major step in shamanic healing. This is devoid of any interpretation or judgment. It is a witnessing process which also encompass our memories of sexual experiences by recapitulating them. The point here is not whether to have sex or not. It is being aware of what is truly happening behind the veil of sex, no matter how we experience it, getting out of glamour and prejudices, unconsciousness and denial.
Conscious use of sexual energy, whether through physical interaction, shamanic work or imagination, can be a fast track to the awakening of our multidimensional nature.wb051432

It can also provide inspiration, healing and luminous transformation for human communities and the planetary environment. As I move on the shamanic path and in daily life, a big part of the learning on the above comes from mistakes and frustrations. Yet deep within I know that as human beings we all share the same longing and dreams. Hence my determination and commitment grow, as I step out of isolation and become open to join other folks who share the same visions.
