Transmutation News – October 2022

We are all aware of the intense weather changes happening all over the world. Entire countries and states in the U.S. are experiencing devastating floods while some places on Earth are literally drying up. We have rivers all over the world that are now so dry you can walk through them.

Water seems to be trying to reach out to us to ask us to wake up to teachings on how to walk on this Earth with balance. For when the weather gets so out of balance it is a reflection of something happening inside the collective of humanity.

As you all know there are endless numbers of people who don’t believe in climate change and don’t want to participate in discussions, solutions, or take action at all.

The message I have shared for so many years now is that if we get up every day and thank earth, air, fire (as the sun) and water for our lives I know in my heart and soul that with the shamanic principle of reciprocity things can change quickly. For if we honor the elements they will honor us in return as has always been intended for our relationship with all nature beings.

We are not the only sentient beings on this planet although we act like we are. There are countries who are giving rivers the same rights as humans. Things are changing and people are realizing that we must form a harmonious balance with nature if we want to continue to survive as a race on Earth.

A few times now I have posted in the Transmutation News a dream I had about a river that had dried up but still had a song. I am posting it here for those of you who have not read about this most powerful dream.

Everything that exists on this planet sings and grieves. Every life form has a right to a life where food and shelter are available. And nature is truly our greatest teacher right now. If we would follow the signs of nature, we would know what to do to save ourselves and our planet. And a lot of it has to do with showing honor, love, respect, and showing kindness. It is really not that hard to go out into nature and sing to healthy nature beings and beings that can use some healing and love.

In all my courses I have taught since 2000 I still find it hard to integrate how many people have miraculous healings by working with transfiguration. This work has been around for so long and used by so many to light up the web of life and keep feeding the light of life.

Singing, dancing, transfiguration, performing honoring ceremonies for the living and the deceased are all ways to change the course of where the dramatic climatic changes are happening. But we need groups of people to go out and form local communities to do the work on the land where you live. It sounds so simple but has a power that has been shown for millennia.

The dream I had was about a river that had seemingly died, but as I walked by it, I could hear the river singing.

For those of you who never read the dream here it is:

Dream Dec 11. 2014

Early this morning I had the most extraordinary dream. The first part of the dream was very complex and deep, and I do not remember it. I know I was in an apartment in a city having a very deep discussion with others, and I think the topic might have been on death.

Anyway, the discussion had moved to a place where I knew it was time for me to leave. And I had come to the city as I wanted to buy light blue mascara. So I decided to move on with my mission.

I was walking through the streets of the city, and I came to a construction zone. There was a new development being built for commercial properties and stores.

A river had to be drained for the building projects to proceed. I know this sounds strange but this was a dream.

The next part of the dream will be with me forever. I walked along the drained river bed. The sand was still wet. It was not like where I live where I walk along arroyos which are dry river beds. The sand in this river was still very moist and wet.

As I walked the river started singing to me. The song was exquisite. And every new curve I came to in the river the song changed. I came to one part of the river where through the song symbols started appearing in the sand. I went back and forth the entire length of the river and kept listening to this beautiful song. The song remained constant depending on where I was on the river.

I was so touched and moved by the beauty of this song and that the river was still singing although the water had been drained.

I walked back to a group of construction workers. And there was one large Native American man with two very long braids. I thought to myself maybe he will listen to me. I told him my story that the river is singing. He looked at me, and when I started crying, he said he would walk with me and try to listen.

We walked to the river bank and started walking the length of the river. At first there was only silence. And then a song emerged. It was different than the one I heard when I was walking alone, but it was song. I asked him if he could hear it. At first he could not. And then the song got stronger and louder. He looked at me in amazement as he heard the song. And together we walked the length of the river listening to the river sing.

He went back to the group of other construction workers and said they had to stop the project for the river was alive and still singing. I left the group knowing they would stop the work.

And then I went on to buy my light blue mascara.

I woke up so touched by the dream and the song of the river! In the early 1970s I drowned in the ocean in Mazatlan and I experienced going through a tunnel and came into a light. I found myself in an extraordinary garden and sat a stone bench while I listened to most beautiful music that I will never be able to describe or have never heard in this earthly realm.

The song of the river was like that. Everything in life sings and the song is eternal.

For this month I thought we would do a transfiguration for the waters of the world like we used to in former times for readers of the Transmutation News.

If you can create an altar where you can place a small bowl or glass of water. Your altar turns your space into sacred space. If you wish to you can light a candle.you can burn some sacred herbs. Use a shamanic. Instrument or play a track of spiritual music you like that allows you to step out of your humanness into being a divine being which you are. Experience the power of your inner sunlight, starlight, or moonlight growing into a beautiful golden light that floods every cell of your body. And then let that light emanate out to a body of water where you are called to focus the light in order to honor it and see it in its divine perfection.

When you feel done you can drink a little bit of the water and then bring it to a body of water where you live. As the transfigured water filled with divine light makes it way to all the waters of the world.

We will do our ceremony this month where I will lead you in this exercise. So have your altar, water, and a shamanic instrument ready to use if you would like to sing and dance as we work together.

For those of you joining in on the ceremony I will also lead a transfiguration ceremony for our circle where we will have the chance to be both the client and practitioner.

It doesn’t matter when you join in for this ceremony as we are working outside of time and everyone will benefit from our work.

I did ramble a bit in the beginning but moved on. There are really two parts to the ceremony. And after recording with Sylvia, I realized that most of you might want to split up the ceremonies and do one at a time. You will see what I mean when listen.

Due to a health challenge my presentation this month will be audio vs. video. You can listen here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wjkv1VkvODc

And then we continue our work on the full moon on October 9 where we join our energies together to emanate light and love within and throughout the Earth. Join me in these ceremonies for they really have the power to create true change.

Announcements:

I have had some unexpected back-to-back health issues that are showing me it is time to slow down a bit. I have been teaching too much, writing, working with clients. The back-to-back online workshops were hard on me. I need more engagement with my students. So I am taking a break until I can fully recover so I can teach into the future. I am in no way planning on stopping teaching. But I am human and need a break to care for my body.  

So I wanted to let everyone know I am going to stop announcing that a workshop is coming soon. But if you want to go further with your work, please work with one of the teachers I trained listed on www.shamanicteachers.com. They teach all the courses I teach as well as some of their own.

You can get amazing training so you can work in the world with clients and potentially be listed on my website www.shamanicteachers.com. But you need to be flexible about working with someone other than me.

I will teach again. I am simply taking the break my body is asking me to take.

Renee Baribeau and I are going to teach a very small workshop on divination. We are registering 30 people so we can have an intimate experience. All participants need to know how to journey. And the workshop will be on November 12 for 5 hours. For more information and to register click on:

Olivier Clerc translated many of my books into French. He is such a deep thinker and a man of true compassion.

Healing the Wounds of the Heart : 15 Obstacles to Forgiveness and How to Overcome Them, Olivier Clerc, Findhorn Press, December 2022.

Can everything be forgiven? Forgiving the small and average sufferings experienced throughout life is one thing. But what about bigger transgressions, like infidelity, abuse, or even large-scale offenses such as genocide? Showing that forgiveness is the healing of the heart’s wounds as well as the revival of love, Olivier Clerc looks at what prerequisites might be needed to enter into a process of forgiving and what the effects of doing so might be, for oneself as much as, if not more than, for the perpetrator. He identifies 15 obstacles to forgiveness–prejudices, confusions, false ideas, misunderstandings–and discusses where these perceptions and obstacles originate from, which keep many of us from taking the path to healing.

Drawing from his years of forgiveness work as well as from the Forgiveness Project, he shares inspiring testimonies and examples from both victims and perpetrators who have rebuilt their lives after trauma by walking the path of conscious forgiveness.

Transmutation News – September 2022

I have a wonderful friend who is going through one of those initiations that many of us are experiencing today. And she always brilliantly masters how to move through challenges. I love her teachings. Anna is one of the most innovative teachers and healers I have had the privilege to meet and get to know well. 

We sometimes have these wonderful supporting emails flying back and forth between both of us. In one of Anna’s recent emails she sent me a story that has touched my heart in a way I can’t even describe.

I recently shared the story in my Shift Network course on shamanic journeying as we are looking at how we can share our work with our communities. I felt this story is so profound I wanted to share it with you too.

Nature truly is our greatest teacher. I hope you are touched by this story and find others that you can hold “paws” with right now. Honestly since I started creating this global community in the late 1990s I feel we have been doing some form of this. And maybe we can find ways to deepen our practice.

From Anna:

“A thing I used to share in circles was about fire ants. They live their lives going about their ant business. And when a flood comes that would wipe out one ant, they all join ant ‘paws’ and form a raft of thousands….that can stay afloat for months, until the floodwaters cede and they find themselves on dry land. There they unlink ‘paws’ and form a new colony.”

Anna feels strongly that those of us walking an initiatory path can be like fire ants and we can hold hands until the floodwaters ease.

I personally love thinking about this, feeling this, imagining it, and being it!

Anna is seeing clients and starting some new, very innovative circles that I feel are such a gift to those wishing to work with a brilliant teacher who has come through so much, she can help us find ways to explore life in a deeper and meaningful way. I am sharing more about Anna’s work in the Announcement Section.

https://thedreamingotter.com

The full moon is on September 9. It is the powerful Harvest Moon. Let’s imagine ourselves holding hands as a one large global community that is like the ant raft that Anna speaks about. And from this place of sacred love and unity let’s shine our light as bright as the stars in the night sky. As we shine our light throughout and within the Earth we start to fill the cracks that are appearing in the collective with the pure light of Source within and Source without. We are a raft of light uplifting all of life until we find steady ground.

If you are new to this circle please read Creating A Human Web of Light on the homepage for instructions for our full moon ceremonies.

The equinox is on September 22. Fall of course is the season I most celebrate. I love the crispness in the air, the change in colors in nature as the Earth prepares to receive the old life that plants and trees release to be composted into deep rich soil for when it is time to grow new life again. And in the Southern Hemisphere of course it is time to start honoring the Earth’s cycle where growth begins to show itself after a long rest during the winter. I know so many of you light up completely as spring approaches.

Watch how you feel during the change in seasons. For you are getting information on how to change your actions and behavior as life brings in a new season.

An old acquaintance of mine once shared a story with me about rituals performed in some Northern European traditions. And one of them that touched me was during certain times of the year, a ritual would be done of physically sweeping your house while focusing on sweeping out old dreams that did not manifest, emotions, traumas, negative thoughts, all the seeds that did not take. It seems like a powerful way to clear the space for a new time to come.

She spoke how in Northern Europe the rituals and ceremonies were focused around the change in seasons. In our work with shamanism in the West I find this to be true of most shamanic cultures.

In our journey for this month I will lead you on a journey to begin to unravel a weaving of your life plan – unraveling the threads that need to be let go and reweaving in some new plans and dreams for yourself and all of life.

Many years ago I had the fun opportunity to present at Sounds True Wake Up Festival where I shared a cabin with some amazing teachers. Christine Stevens was one our roommates for the event. And she is such a bright light and put a smile on our faces everyday. She is just one of those wonderful people who makes you feel peppy and inspired.

On Saturday July 30, celebrated music therapist Christine Stevens shared how you can turn to the flute as a sacred sound-healing tool to help you deepen your spiritual journey — enhancing your connection with Nature, inspiring personal transformation, and so much more.

Although her intro call is over you can still sign up and listen to her talk and register for her class.

Transmutation News – August 2022

I was meeting with a dear friend who suffered a tragedy due to the fires in New Mexico. It is so heartbreaking to see how much precious land just got burnt up due to the forest service starting a controlled burn during incredibly high winds. We really are dealing with people in power who are either dealing with extreme soul loss or have some mental issues. For this never should have happened! This community is filled with some of the original settlers and they have nothing.

My husband and I were not affected by the fires except emotionally as we saw how much ancient land disappeared in flames.

This led to a new vision from the Land and Earth coming to me. I was shown how the land I live on is a weaving. As you might remember I am a spinner so weaving takes on a lot of meaning for me.

I had an incredible vision of the land being woven into something like a braided rope. It really touched me. But what touched me even more was I saw that I was woven into the land. My feet were woven into the land.

And this led to all kinds of understandings, inspirations, and I am still digesting a lot of this. For when Woods and I bought our house almost 30 years ago I knew the second I walked on the land that this would be my home until the day I died.

Woods and I did so much to care take the land. Transfiguring daily during the worst of our bark beetle outbreaks that killed 6 million trees in New Mexico. We worked long days doing our spiritual work and our trees survived.

We walk the land, we leave offerings, we talk to the land and the list truly goes on.

I know many of you reading the Transmutation News live in urban areas and might not have gotten the kinesthetics of being a living part of the land but you are. I felt myself woven into the land growing up in Brooklyn, New York.

The land we live on is our home. In Central Asia some shamans would not travel off their land as they would lose their power in doing so.

And for me although I have been close to homeless so many times home has always been important to me.

When I traveled for teaching. I would carry a little altar and my stuffed animal friends from home and set up my space wherever I was staying during the workshop. I remember one of my workshop sponsors telling me how much she enjoyed observing me making a home out of the bedroom I was sleeping in. She loved watching me put my sacred objects all around the bed I was sleeping in or on the floor I was sleeping on.

I can make myself feel at home anywhere. It is a gift I have always had.

So I started thinking if the land is our true home, and we are woven into it, then what do we want to let into our homes? Quite the interesting question.

You can develop a very rich practice of during your daily life reflecting on if you want a particular food, plant, sacred object, person, energy, coming into your home. Focusing on what energy you want in your home and on the land will give all of us all the information we need to move towards making this planet healthy again. For we have polluted our own homes, and we are the ones to clean up what we created.

Of course we can leave it to the elements who are doing an amazing job of cleaning the planet right now through high winds, flooding waters, fires, earthquakes. Mother Earth knows how to cleanse herself and will continue doing so. I wonder how many of us will truly join in on the level that is needed.

Finding more ways to do energetic cleansing, and focusing on what energies you want to let into your home – your body, your physical home, and the land. This is big work we can focus on for the rest of our lives.

The full moon is August 11. Let’s join our hearts and intention together to be a strong vessel of light that begins to weave in loving and light filled energies to begin to heal the division in the collective. With focus, concentration, and intention we have a lot more power than we give ourselves credit for. Put your heart and soul into the ceremony this month and notice if you feel different.  

If you are a new reader of the Transmutation News, please visit Creating A Human Web of Light on the homepage for the instructions for our full moon ceremonies.

Please join me in thanking Ai and Miha for translating the Transmutation News into Japanese! They have found spiritual practices to help clients so much they are working in this way full time. This is such wonderful news that so many people are being helped by intuitive work. So now we are looking for a new Japanese translator. If you are willing to bring the Transmutation News to Japanese readers, please email info@sandraingerman.com.

For my video recording this month we will journey on exploring what it means to be woven into the land as well as a topic I am personally working on about the elements. You can watch here:

Announcements:

Some GREAT NEWS: I stopped talking about the updated version of the Transmutation App. We ran into quite a few technological issues. I did change the name of the app to Healing Your Thoughts and it was accepted by the Google Store and the Apple Store. I did have to change the name so the cost is $1.99. And this is a one-time fee. The app has no sign in, and I designed for me and those who not computer savvy. The references in write ups on the app still say the Transmutation App. The app is available for sale now!! Check out Healing Your Thoughts.

I would like to thank Cypress who updated and developed the new app. They were such a pleasure to work with! And I really trusted them the entire way that they were trying to update the app into something very beautiful.  And Mark Dammer, a friend and colleague, was a true angel in helping me to work with testing the Android app and helping me make some decisions, and also helped me with the Google Store.

Mark and I have some history with our circle.  He lives in Scotland and used to live in Findhorn. We conducted a remote transfiguration experiment with his philodendron which was feeling a little low and responded very well to our work. Our group was working in the U.S. and Mark and his plant were in Scotland. The results of this wonderful work can be seen on the Research section on the homepage. Look for GDV results Remote Findhorn Experiment. You can see the graph and photos of our long-distance work.

If you are ever interested in creating your own app I liked working with Cypress a lot. I like to share good resources with you. Here is their contact info:

I am still waiting until the spirits give me the go ahead to create an in-person practitioner and Teacher Training. But there are resources for all of you to keep learning. I have once again engaged in the world and am doing some traveling again. So now my next step is finding a good retreat center for the in-person trainings I would like to do. Right now, it is not easy to find one that fits my needs.

I really have moved into a place of grief around this as I so miss being in circle with shamanic practitioners learning the deep and ancient ways of healing. I miss the pilgrimages we all had to take to leave our homes and travel to workshops in all different places around the world. This brought us to a more bonded and sacred space than what we can create online.

I taught every year in flu outbreaks as I loved to teach five 5-day residential workshops in a row in the fall. So I am used to the flu circulating entire groups. But the Covid feels different for me. I know everyone has a different opinion on this.

Transmutation News – July 2022

As you know people are feeling very restless and simply want to go back to their former lives where they felt everything seemed normal. Of course nothing was going at a harmonious fashion or we would not be seeing the intensity of the dismemberment we are seeing today.

I have been noticing comments among some of my friends and closer students. They are really ready to engage in life again. And so many I know who had such strict meditation, yoga, and shamanic practices are telling me that they are spending time more trying to get back into life and are letting their practices go or take second place for when they can find time.

Some people I know are starting their days reading the news instead of doing the practices that healed and formed their lives for so many years.

Once again, we are getting a little lost on our priorities.

We all want to believe that life will become normal again although I don’t think anyone I know can define that term anymore.

For me I try to be an optimist as I have been working for so long with my helping spirits that I do hold a bigger and more expanded perspective to what is going on. This gives me clues of how to keep walking on my own path instead of getting lost in the craziness of the collective. By keeping to my spiritual work and not allowing the restless feelings to take over I can stay centered knowing that there is so much chaos and tragedy around me. I do believe the only calm I can create in this lifetime is the calm inside my inner landscape. I think the world has its own destiny.

As I keep sharing repeatedly, the world is just too big for us to take on all the tragedies that are coming our way to make us grow and shift our priorities. We really have to take a step back and look at our own lives and how we can contribute to our communities.

I have been talking a lot about “sensitives” with Renee Baribeau on our podcast the Shamans Cave. I am taking about it in summit presentations, and I am writing so much more about it.

Our sensitivity is our strength, it is not our weakness! It has always been the sensitive women and men who were the shamans, mystics, diviners, and healers of the community.

But people who are sensitive are getting lost in the news and taking more and more courses to try and find ways to heal from a gift that called you here to be a presence of healing for the collective.

So if you are feeling sensitive, if you are feeling impacted by all that is going on in the world, do your spiritual work. There is a dimension of reality just behind ours where there is complete harmony and balance and cooperation between nature and humans. We can bring through those beautiful energies into our life now in the midst of the craziness if we keep up our spiritual work and let nature be our doorway into this other dimension of reality where there is only beauty.

The full moon is July 13. Let’s recommit ourselves to our spiritual work. Life might be making us feel a little more lazy, isolated, fearful, restless, and so on. But we can always come home to ourselves. Our spirit is our true home and being one with the creative forces of our universe is the lifeline we want, to have a strong link for our eternal health and well being.

We can be a light in the world and create change for ourselves and the web of life. But we have to actively engage in our work with enthusiasm, passion, and through deep preparation.

Join with me and our circle to come together in complete unity as one beautiful, brilliant, and radiant light shining into dark places on Earth.

For those of you new to reading the Transmutation News please visit Creating A Human Web of Light on the homepage.

Sylvia helped me record a guided journey for this month to look at inviting in more feminine energies to the planet and into our lives to help return balance and harmony. Here is the link to the video recording:

Announcements:

Most of my books are published in multiple languages which is so exciting! And the languages my books are published are listed in the resource section on Books and CDs. But I am especially excited that a deal has just been made to publish How To Heal Toxic Thoughts in Vietnamese. It is selling so well everywhere right now. This simple book has so many important tools for all of us! The Vietnamese edition won’t be out for awhile as I just signed the contract.

I know I stopped talking about the updated version of the Transmutation App. We ran into quite a few technological issues. But the app will either be ready by the time this column is published or shortly after. Due to Android and IOS rules I actually had to change the name. So the app is now called Healing Your Thoughts. But the references in write ups on the app still say the Transmutation App. I will keep  you posted when the app is finished.

I am still waiting until the spirits give me the go ahead to create an in-person practitioner and Teacher Training. But there are resources for all of you to keep learning. I have once again engaged in the world and am doing some traveling again. So now my next step is finding a good retreat center for the in-person trainings I would like to do. Right now, it is not easy to find one that fits my needs.

I still have Evergreen Courses that are already recorded on Journeying and other topics. Check out my Training page for further information. And you have all received my dedicated email that all my Shift Network courses are now all digital and can bought by you to learn from at any time. “The Dark Night of the Soul” is such a powerful course and has great tools to get you through challenging times.

I will be teaching a new online course for the Shift Network, and I am excited about it as it will create a stronger community and more engagement from participants than in my other online courses.

First I will have an intro call with Stephen Dinan which many of you will find interesting as I will be talking about what we have gained and what we have lost by introducing shamanism to the Western World. I have been reflecting on this for months now. I have been so focused on how shamanism was practiced in the past and how it obtained such miraculous results. We are still getting miraculous results from the work. But something seems to be changing. So I will discuss this on Saturday, June 25th with Stephen and the call with be recorded. The link to join is:

https://shiftnetwork.isrefer.com/go/sjchnSI/ingerman/

Before I start talking about this fascinating topic on the 25th I will share a message of hope for the spiritual community from my helping spirits.

In the actual course I will teach shamanic journeying to the Lower, Middle, and Upper Worlds to discover the compassionate spirits that are guiding us, protecting us, and willing to help heal us and perform our ceremonial work.

Once we are grounded in the core practices of shamanic journeying we will start working in behalf of each other in small groups. I will choose a journey that speaks to current issues happening on the planet and then participants will discuss the wisdom they learned through their journeywork. In this way everyone gets to share different pieces of the puzzle. For we all only get certain pieces in our personal journeys.

And then we will break into small groups where each group will journey to help one person In their group who has asked for guidance or healing help. It is always exciting to see how much easier it is to journey on someone else’s issue and also to feel the power of the helping spirits working through you.

Of course I will include a session on transfiguration and how to teach this powerful practice in your community.

Participants will also be able to ask me questions.

I am very excited about this course. This course is designed to help bring shamanic work into your community. Again, my free introductory call will be in June 25. And then the 7-week course begins on July 12 and ends on August 23.

This course is perfect for those of you wanting to learn the art of shamanic journeying and is also great for seasoned journeyers who would like practice sessions to deepen your work and learn how to work with your community.

This will be different from my other online courses as there will be ways for people to work together in smaller circles. And the power of the course will be learning how to work in small groups so you can bring all the work I am teaching into your community.

This newsletter was published after my introductory call with Stephen Dinan on my new course. But there is a replay or if you just want to learn about the course you can click on the link below.

Practicing Unshakable Joy With Brother Lawrence, the Friar d’Amour with Carmen Acevedo Butcher, PhD (June – July 2022)

I saw this talk advertised and it looked so interesting for me I decided to sign up and share it with you. I tend to like to really be attracted to stories from elders about getting through challenging times.

Each day, we’re bombarded with stressful news and other distractions — on our televisions and phones, in the conversations around us, and within our own quiet moments of reflection.

The wisdom our world needs right now, affirms Carmen Acevedo Butcher, PhD, an award-winning translator of spiritual texts, can be found in the teachings of Brother Lawrence, the Friar d’Amour.

Brother Lawrence was a down-to-earth mystic, monastery cook, sandal repairer, and disabled veteran who limped painfully all his adult life.

He lived through a time that was strikingly similar to our own — marked by authoritarianism, political division, social and economic disparities, climate crises, hunger, plague, global death, and war.

As a result, his writings, found after his death in 1691, are filled with profound yet practical tools and wisdom that apply to our moment in history — equipping us to live more calmly and deeply as we connect with ourselves, others, and God.

You can hear a replay of the introductory call to discover more about Brother Lawrence’s gentle, simple practices for returning to love — and feeling more grounded in the midst of life’s biggest distractions and greatest challenges.

Transmutation News – June 2022

Transmutation News June 2022

As the world seems to keep us in our initiation experience and the polishing of our consciousness continues to move us to new states of consciousness, I find people are diving deeper into their inner world to discover and reveal the hidden issues that are at the core of what needs to be healed.

We are reaching for ways to find inner peace in the midst of chaos while the human population is    dividing more and more, and climate changes have us exploring what we need for our survival.

We have big work ahead and achieving the best state of health on all levels is being called for right now.

In April I had a long epic dream that continued for hours. The dream was filled with so many metaphors and images all that made perfect sense to me. But the final message of the dream was that all the tension I hold in my body that create certain health issues for me are coming from the rage of being judged throughout my life.

Some of the judgement of course was personal. I did not speak until I was 3 ½ or 4. My mother was called to school by the principle who told her to put me in a trade school as I would never amount to anything. Then I was put in gifted classes where I obviously did not belong. And the list goes on of being constantly put in situations where I was judged – even singing, dancing, artwork, writing, all the things that I loved to do that brought me joy. There were always authority figures who judged what brought me passion and meaning and deemed whether I was worthy to continue with activities that were important to my soul.

Recently on the Shamans Cave, my podcast with Renee Baribeau, I shared how because I would not dissect a frog, this refusal ended me up in a psychiatrist’s office.

I started reflecting on how harshly society judges all of us and creates a role for us to play in life even if our soul calls us into living a different role.

The patriarchal powers that have been in place through our lifetime and many lifetimes before our time here use judgement to control. For how could society keep order if there were not controls on allowing the population of earth to tap into their highest creativity and passion for life?

And we know the answer is to balance out the vertical structure that is in place and allow the feminine energies to flow through our planet and through all that is alive again. No one can stop the feminine power – it is part of creating balance in the universe. We need that horizontal energy that empowers all of us to stand in our truth and follow our energy and flow in the river of life.

We just need more people who are willing to be a vessel for the feminine healing energies that can come in the form of rebirth or destruction. As we know the feminine has many facets.

In my dream I experienced the unbridled rage from being so harshly judged in my life. And I know so many of us hold that rage or being controlled might manifest as the fear of being judged and therefore getting into trouble or depression from stuffing our creativity so deep inside of us not allowing it to be expressed freely.

The answer is to keep performing your ceremonies to let go of what you took on from society’s projections on you, and in your ceremonies to ask for your greatest dreams to manifest. As we continue our transmutation work of healing our toxic thoughts, how we use our words, and daydreams, we allow the feminine to embrace us more and more. And when we shine our light from the core of our inner sunlight, as the sun shines its light from its core, we marry the male and female energies and create a frequency of love and a new a flow of unending light that could transform the collective that becomes more divided by the day.

And now we greet the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the winter in the Southern Hemisphere bringing us the opportunity to merge with the earth’s cycles that will impact the frequency of the earth, water, air, and light flowing in and through our lives. As we align ourselves to merge with the new changing energies, we find our flow and we start to wake up to the actions or the change in behaviors our soul requires from us to keep moving forward during this life path filled with so many obstacles for so many. It seems like the route is getting a little rockier and we all have to find our inner spiritual strength to keep walking second by second and not looking ahead to the future.

For the healing is staying in the the present and doing the deepest work you can do, as the earth is doing during this change in seasons. This is a time of deep growth and the flowing of magnificent beauty and also a time of going deep within to discover the treasures of the darkness and solace of winter.

I know many of you are rebels, as I have been in my life, refusing to give in to what society is asking or telling us to do and how to behave. We need to find our rebellious nature and this a time to truly allow ourselves to follow the journey of our soul.

But in order to do this, you must place yourself back into your own river!

The full moon is June 14 and is called the Supermoon. Let us call in the magnificent full moon energy of the feminine to either be a mothering force in our life that helps us heal, or the Kali energy needed to rise up out of our shell and be a force, just as nature is a force in the world. Remember we are nature and a force of our own.

Perform your preparation work to move your ego and mental chatter out of the way so you are a direct vehicle for the divine in that you connecting as a strong link with divine energies flooding our earth right now. Join in with the divine dance occurring right now. Move with the energy of light allowing it to flow through you touching every single inch of this earth within and without and all of life in the web of life.

If you are a new reader of the Transmutation News please read Creating A Human Web of Light on this homepage for future instructions for our full moon ceremony.

The solstice in on June 21.  Take a day this month to be in meditation in nature and reflect on your own flow. Are you in your own river or did you join in with the chaotic river that society has created at this time? What are you trying to grow in your life? What part of you is ready to blossom?  Or is a time to go within and let the darkness and the inner fire of the earth feed the seeds you have planted with enough nurturance and heat to allow those seeds to rise up though any obstacle given to stand in the magnificence of life.

We join together as a strong circle with love and light flowing through our body and our hearts and we wish all in our global circle a beautiful solstice!

Sylvia Edwards helped me to record a healing and simple journey for the solstice. I think that we are getting lost in trying to perform complex ceremonies when we have not not really built up a strong enough relationship with nature to create the positive results that are possible.

I talk about the current state of the world and how as empaths we can’t take on all the suffering, and we need to do our personal work and get good guidance on steps we can make in our life that will affect the current state of the world.

We will do some drumming, rattling, singing, and dancing to prepare. So please have a shamanic instrument that you can use. I like to stand and drum. But I have not set up my computer to capture me standing and drumming. I am just not that interested in technology. So this part of the video might seem a little strange. But drum and rattle with me and you won’t notice.

Nicholas Breeze Woods is an amazing shaman. I have turned to him in my deep crisis, and he was one of the only shamans who could help me. He wrote a new book that is so much more than the books you see on the market today.

The title of his new book is Walking with the Tiger: Deepening Your Shamanic Life. I cannot recommend this book enough!

Nicholas Breeze Wood has researched and practiced shamanism for almost 40 years, combining it with the more ’earthier’ end of Tibetan Buddhism, as well as with ‘medicine’ teachings from Native North American peoples.

He has worked with many gifted medicine people, shamans and lamas over the years, and is also deeply apprenticed to his own spirit helpers, whose teachings never fail to awe and surprise him.

 His shamanism is a fusion of traditional Himalayan and Mongolian forms, combined with teachings from his own spirits.

He has extensively researched the use of ritual objects within Shamanism and Tibetan Buddhism for his entire adult life, and works deeply with ritual objects within his own shamanic practice.

He holds traditional teachings and – where required traditional initiations – for their use.


Nick is the editor of Sacred Hoop Magazine – www.SacredHoop.org – a leading international magazine about shamanism – published since 1993. He is also a musician and artist.

The book is available on Amazon. This link will lead to  some extracts and a link to Amazon

Transmutation News – May 2022

Recently I have been sharing with friends, practitioners, and teachers an article my husband forwarded to me written in Women’s Health. It was a very interesting article that pertains to most of us. The article focuses on what they call sensitive women –“the sensitives”. This is a women’s magazine, so they focused on women, but most of the men I know fit into what is now being labeled as “sensitives”. As you all know I don’t believe in labeling people. But the information was quite interesting.

The article spoke about sensitive women who used to have a role in their communities of being the shamans, healers, mystics, and artists.  Again I believe this refers to men too.

But without these ways of being in service and living in the dense collective we created, our lives are fraught with so many challenges. We are empaths and living in today’s world with so much violence, division, and pollution is challenging for so many people right now.

I follow a female doctor online. And she is talking about how sensitive her patients are getting and can’t take most supplements anymore. And she said she is finding the same is true for herself. I tried to explain to one of my doctors that I can’t take a benign supplement he wants me take, and he just looks into my eyes and says, “I don’t understand”. But I have become so sensitive that some minor medications can send me to the ER.

The world is where it is right now. And we are so in the middle of being resculpted by the forces of the universe. All spiritual practitioners are going through their own “polishing” process. And part of this is learning how to live in a world that is in between times and is basically in chaos. How do we not take that on and digest what is indigestible?

I wrote many years ago about an astrologer who pointed out to me all the shelves of antacids in pharmacies. And this conversation was in the early 1990s. Imagine how the aisles have filled almost double or triple with antacid products.

The astrologer remarked that this was a metaphor on how we can no longer digest life.

And you can see for so many, what he said is truer than it was in the early 90’s depending on one’s situation of course.

I have been sharing tools for all of us to be able to transmute into light all that we take on as we learn how to transform the issues life brings to us on all levels. And transfiguration has been and is used in all spiritual practices to neutralize all we digest on all levels – mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual.

Spending time in nature is healing balm. And leaning how breathe so you are not engaging your sympathetic nervous system versus your parasympathetic nervous system is crucial for your health.

So we have our tools we can use. Besides what I mentioned about, we have our ceremonies we can use to release what no longer serves us, to call in blessings, for prayer, and for many other intentions that help to put us back into a place of center, a place of inner peace, and at one with the power of the universe and the creative forces. Performing ceremonies is the most powerful way to move through transitions and changing times as performing ceremonies places us back into balance.

We have singing and dancing and the list goes on. I have shared so many tools, practices, and ceremonies over the years with all of you in this column and especially in my books.

I got a wonderful email from my book agent that the publisher of my book How to Heal Toxic Thoughts shared it is selling so well right now. I wrote the book I think in 2006, and it only about 100 pages. When I was working with my editor, she had the entire staff in the publishing company read the book for learning the tools I was sharing. The book became very popular among the staff.

It is a great book and includes what I teach in Medicine for the Earth and Walking in Light, but is written for a mainstream audience.

The only additional thing I feel I have to share on this issue for now is that we have to learn how to feel safe inside ourselves. And of course transfiguration is perfect for this.

You can do some guided visualizations where you imagine yourself in a bubble of your favorite color. I use the blue egg, which you have all read about multiple times in everything I write, and Is written about in How to Heal Toxic Thoughts.  

And once you feel yourself in a safe bubble you can feel yourself in another bubble created by your helping spirits, the divine beings you work with, or the power of the universe.

I did a visualization with this practice one night before I went to sleep, and it was amazing to feel how insulated I felt by the energies that were throwing me off balance.  We have to learn how to live in the world we created, but as this life is causing deterioration of health on many levels we also have to learn ways to protect ourselves from the craziness of the outer world and find inner peace. Then we can engage more fully if we choose to.

Some people who choose the path of finding inner peace through spiritual practices choose to stay isolated from the collective and some choose to engage more. It is all about what your own soul desires and what way of life feeds and nurtures you.

We have a long way to go before we will see positive changes to the world at large. It is important to find ways, tools, practices, a path that leads you to inner peace and remembering you are one with the Creator and cannot be harmed. For we are all Spirit and our Spirit is immortal.

The full moon is May 16. Let’s join our hearts and spiritual power together and create a strong link among ourselves and the creative forces of the universe. When we do this the practices, we engage in become truly exponential in their power to create positive change.

Let us become one light filled Human Web of Light. Our light nurtures every being that is alive. And our light weaves a web of healing within and throughout the Earth.

If you are a new reader of the Transmutation News please read “Creating a Human Web of Light” on the homepage.

Announcements:

I am delighted to announce that my book How to Heal Toxic Thoughts is now out in Dutch. It is published by A3 boeken. www.A3boeken.nl.

I am still waiting until the spirits give me the go ahead to create an in-person practitioner and Teacher Training. But there are resources for all of you to keep learning.

I still have Evergreen Courses that are already recorded on Journeying and other topics. Check out my Training page for further information. And you have all received my dedicated email that all my Shift Network courses are now all digital and can bought by you to learn from at any time. “The Dark Night of the Soul” is such a powerful course and has great tools to get you through challenging times.

On www.shamanicteachers.com you can find shamanic practitioners from all over the world who trained with me who are doing remote healings right now. And many are working with people in person. And I have been training brilliant teachers since 2004, and you can find online workshops and in person workshops by visiting the website.

Please check out my books and audio programs. I have received such great feedback, and they include information and exercises I teach in my workshops.

And of course Renee Baribeau and I have a popular podcast called the Shamans Cave. People love it!! I love doing the podcast with Renee!  Join us! Subscribe on www.ShamansTV.com.  And subscribe on You Tube! Our show had completely taken off on You Tube, Buzz Feed, and Apple. We are getting the most amazing feedback on our podcast.

And if you have a topic you wish for us to address you can email shamanscave@gmail.com. I will receive your email and the topic is appropriate Renee and I will discuss it.

I will be teaching a new online course for the Shift Network, and I am excited about it as it will create a stronger community and more engagement from participants than in my other online courses.

I will teach shamanic journeying to the Lower, Middle, and Upper Worlds to discover the compassionate spirits that are guiding us, protecting us, and willing to help heal us and perform our ceremonial work.

Once we are grounded in the core practices of shamanic journeying, we will start working on behalf of each other in small groups. There will be journeys on what is happening in the world or in nature, such as during changing seasons, where participants will discuss with each other in small breakout groups the wisdom they learned through their journeywork. In this way everyone gets to share different pieces of the puzzle. For we all only get certain pieces in our personal journeys.

And we will have the opportunity to perform healing work in small groups where there are participants who need guidance or healing help.

Participants will also be able to ask me questions.

I am very excited about this course. My free introductory call will be in June. And then the 7-week course begins on July 12 and ends on August 23.

This course is perfect for those of you wanting to learn the art of shamanic journeying and is also great for seasoned journeyers who would like practice sessions to deepen your work and learn how to work with your community.

I don’t have registration details yet for my free introductory call or for the course. As you know I will share more information as I get it.

For now, please save the dates.

Nicholas Breeze Woods is an amazing shaman. I have turned to him in my deep crisis, and he was one of the only shamans who could help me. He wrote a new book that is so much more than the books you see on the market today.

The title of his new book is Walking with the Tiger: Deepening Your Shamanic Life. I cannot recommend this book enough!

Nicholas Breeze Wood has researched and practiced shamanism for almost 40 years, combining it with the more ’earthier’ end of Tibetan Buddhism, as well as with ‘medicine’ teachings from Native North American peoples.

He has worked with many gifted medicine people, shamans and lamas over the years, and is also deeply apprenticed to his own spirit helpers, whose teachings never fail to awe and surprise him.

 His shamanism is a fusion of traditional Himalayan and Mongolian forms, combined with teachings from his own spirits.

He has extensively researched the use of ritual objects within Shamanism and Tibetan Buddhism for his entire adult life, and works deeply with ritual objects within his own shamanic practice.

He holds traditional teachings and – where required traditional initiations – for their use.


Nick is the editor of Sacred Hoop Magazine – www.SacredHoop.org – a leading international magazine about shamanism – published since 1993. He is also a musician and artist.

The book is available on Amazon. This link will lead to some extracts and a link to Amazon

Transmutation News – April 2022

We all join our hearts together to pray for peace between Ukraine and Russia. What is happening is so tragic. It would be tragic in any case. But with the Covid added to the trials of the refugees leaving Ukraine what is happening is heartbreaking. So we do our ceremonies as we feel called to do, for peace. My ancestors come from the Ukraine, and I might still have family there. So yes I am performing my ceremonies!

 I have promised my Russian and Ukrainian friends that I will be asking our circle to pray for all people who are caught in the middle of this chaos. For people of all ages are suffering in ways right now that are unconscionable.

And of course we must remember that there are unspeakable tragedies, abuse, and war all over the world that is never talked about in the media. So our strength of spirit is strong enough to hold all in love right now.

Although I am not on the internet much anymore – at least not as much as in former times- students still find a variety of ways to contact me and share what is going on.

The general question that is coming up in all my correspondence is how to deal with a world where humans have literally lost their minds and are acting with division and destructively towards themselves, others, all of life, and the Earth.

This is just my opinion and what I have been sharing with others. I believe social activism is so important right now. But you have to have “the stomach” for it. For there is not much rational thinking going on right now. Experts from every profession are preaching to us about what we need to do to feel better. What we really need is for people to go within and do their own work.

Being inspired by others is essential right now. But so many people are giving their power away to people calling themselves experts. Really no one has the key except you to unlock you from any prison you feel yourself living in.

I do not believe anyone is going to make our lives better and peaceful except ourselves. And that takes a commitment to ourselves, our community, nature, the helping spirits, and to the creative forces of the universe. Once all the sacred beings in the unseen realms have been called in they will shape your path, your heart, and your life and bring you to the truth of who you are and what you need to do right now.

It is not easy work. But we are not living in easy times. As I keep writing on most of the columns the only person you can save is yourself. This might sound selfish when you just literally read the words. But we don’t understand how much the world will shift if enough people shift their own energy to one of emanating love, radiating light, and living in a state of internal peace, the world around us will change for the better. This teaching is as old as humans have been here.

We have choices right now. We can go out and engage in social activism along with our spiritual practices. But if you are a true empath, as so many are, you don’t just want to open yourself to the suffering of the world. For that is not helpful to anyone.

Will those beings who are suffering feel the love and light we are emanating? I don’t know. But try an experiment for yourself and get into a clear and sacred space and breathe in and out love and light and imagine it touching every living being on this Earth. And radiate your spiritual light. Notice for yourself the quality of the energy pulsations being generated by you. And then ask yourself if you truly believe that being a presence of love and light helps to change the energy on the planet.

The frustration I hear from authentic teachers and true students on the path is “no one is listening”. And that is true.

I do not have any belief that our 4.6 billion year old Earth is any danger of extinction. But I do believe humans are now due from how we have treated ourselves and each other. And as I have written in past columns, we have watched human civilizations bring themselves into extinction time and time again. Amazing to think that we are simply repeating history over and over again and don’t learn from our past errors.

A really good friend of mine sent these words in an email. I asked her permission to use what she shared with me with all of you. I think many of us feel like this right now, and I do believe it is our destiny to remember our vulnerabilities.

”I  used to imagine that my soul picked these times to manifest as human so that I could be part of fixing the broken parts of the world.  Now I think there is also the soul purpose of finding beauty, love, delight and wonder despite all that is broken.   It seems part of my lesson is to find paths of pleasure or laughter even among all the pain and losses. And that also I need to rest even if things aren’t fixed in myself or in the larger world.”

Those of us who are sensitive really need to be taking care of ourselves right now. And the Earth asks us to remember the beauty of and the gift of life.

The full moon is April 16. Step into the magical place your soul lives in all the time. Strip away your mind chatter for awhile and let your spirit shine through all the concerns we have about life on Earth today. Drop into your deepest place of knowing and spirit and experience your eternal light shining through every cell of your being connecting with all of us in our global community. This web of light shines throughout every place on Earth. This one practice of coming together on the full moon as a global community to create a human web of light has so many more effects on the collective then we know.

It is the invisible part of healing we need to learn how to have faith in.

If you are a new reader of the Transmutation News, please visit Creating A Human Web of Light on the homepage.

Please remember that every spiritual tradition teaches that for anything to be created on Earth, first it must be woven in the unseen realms. Everything is born out of the unseen. So we need a new weaving for our collective life. And the first step is doing your own spiritual work, clean out the old spiritual clutter and old wounds that will not lead us to a new evolved consciousness. And start to form the new dream of life as a weaving in the unseen.

This is the time for daydreaming in the most positive way possible! Please join me in this. This is the work that must be done now!

I don’t know why, but I keep receiving the message to encourage everyone to read The Little Prince. I was introduced to The Little Prince by Saint-Exupéry while I was in Junior High School taking French. I loved the book so much I memorized Le Petit Prince in French and The Little Prince in English. I still read this beloved book from time to time.

Many years ago, while I was teaching in Austria a woman from Milan in my circle tried to get me to trade my Petit Prince watch for her Rolex. My watch is a children’s watch and did not cost much. But with as many times I have had to rebuild the insides I might have well have bought a Rolex!

I really don’t know why this is so important to share about this heartwarming book. But I keep getting the message.

There was a day when everyone knew about Le Petit Prince.Now no one knows the book anymore which I find tragic.

The book will open you back up to your inner child and the beauty of life on Earth.

A message from my book Welcome Home:

In times of great challenge:
Stay focused
Stay positive
Stay centered

Steve Patterson went through a remarkable journey as he was regaining his health. It is truly remarkable! Check out Steve’s book on his healing adventure! I am so inspired by his story and how he turned his life into a blessing.

Is it possible to be prepared for the end of the world? What is it like to find out you have a terminal illness? Is it possible to break the cycle of addiction without traditional therapy? In addition, how do you respond to seemingly insurmountable odds when you’ve achieved success in nearly every other area of life? This is How it Feels to Heal tells a man’s story about how a series of midlife crises forced him to re-evaluate every aspect of his life and led him to places most people do not even know exist.

Born in the mid-1960s, Steve Patterson is a father of four, former soldier, counselor, and business owner. He is currently working with individuals facing significant life challenges while traveling Latin America to rebuild his life following the story told in this book.

Many years ago, I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Emmanuel Itier who is a brilliant filmmaker of documentaries. He is so passionate about being in service and has made numerous award-winning documentaries on topics such as on the feminine and also on stopping war. And we have become good friends over the years.

I was part of a documentary Emmanuel made titled “The Invocation”. I am in some of his other documentaries. But I wanted to share this one with you. Gary Quinn actually wrote a book based on the transcripts of the documentary titled The Invocation.

Transmutation News – March 2022

Every once in awhile while I am meditating or in a quiet space, I get these messages that can be quite unusual, but seem to touch me on a deep level.

One night I was in a silent and peaceful place. Of course the news of the Covid and what is happening politically and environmentally is always around me. I can escape from all news, but I do want to stay informed so I can remain relevant in my teaching.

I was reflecting on Covid mutations and viruses in general. I have taught for over 20 years, in my Medicine for the Earth and Healing with Spiritual Light workshops, that viruses are more intelligent than humankind, and we have to learn how to have more passion for life as a good defense against viruses. I wrote a bit about this to start our New Year.

When we look at how humans are behaving now and throughout history our egos simply don’t accept the principle of unity and the human mind creates fractures in our own health, but it really creates fractures among humans. And humans have not been at peace with each other as our egos are into power over, not unity and finding peace and harmony. We seem to fight about everything and always have.

At a time on the planet when the health of all life depends on humans coming together in unity, the division is growing stronger daily.

But the Covid mutations work together. The virus creates mutations which helps it survive and only grow stronger.  Viruses don’t fight about what color they are and if they agree with political policies. They work together and thrive.

We have been dividing more and more over the years even before the Covid arrived. And I do believe the Covid arrived as a teacher. I truly believe the Covid was brought to us by the power of the universe to be a teacher in learning about unity, oneness, and the power of cooperation and mutual support.

I know it sounds crazy. But think about!

March 20 we welcome in spring in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. Such sacred times of change to honor. Just like life never stands still for us, nature is always changing. We are nature beings, and we are impacted by every shift in nature’s cycles – the changes in the moon, the seasons, the stars in the night sky. But we don’t always acknowledge that we are at one with these changes as everything changing in nature is creating a similar change in us too.

As the seasons change and the moon progresses through her phases take time to stand outside. Let the sun bathe you during the day and take a moon bath at night. Feel the radiance of these life-giving forces bathing and healing you. This is such a powerful and simple ceremony you can perform alone or with a group.

On the equinox spend time in nature. You can write a poem about the exquisite healing quality of nature. You can put on some ceremonial clothes- something very simple like a scarf, or you can bring a small sacred rattle that you made out into nature. You can sit with your favorite tree and read a poem in a soft voice filled with loving words and acceptance of the new qualities the equinox is bringing into your life. Leave offerings at any tree you’re sitting at or any place you visited in nature while giving thanks to the compassionate ancestors of the land, earth, air, water, and fire, the sun, the moon, your helping spirits, and the earth itself for guiding you during the changing times so that you can harmonize with the changes within. And don’t forget to honor the spirit of the land where you live because you are one, and when the land and you develop a strong spiritual bond together the land will take care of you in ways beyond your imagination.

Walk ceremoniously while gazing at the changing leaves of the trees and plants. Notice how the texture, feel, and smell in the air seem different with the change in seasons. Listen to the new bird songs that emerge at this time of year. Watch the activity of the small animals in the park as they busily prepare for the season. Feel the heartbeat of the earth. Be inspired by the spiritual messages that the wind is carrying to you If you live by water notice how the tides and the quality of water changes during the change in seasons.

Through your ongoing ceremonial work you will step into a harmonious flow instead of feeling out of step and out of sync in life.

And don’t forget to give thanks for your life!!

The full moon is on March 18. This is a powerful time for all of us to appreciate life and the changes that the Earth is going through with the change in season. I feel that we have to step up our commitment to our spiritual practices. Dealing with the Covid and all the limitations it is bringing to our lives many people are moving into inertia. Fight the inertia and be an active participant in creating a new dream for life.

One way to do that is through performing ceremonies like we do on the full moon.

So let’s put our full intention and heart into the work this month and every month by joining our spiritual light together. Let’s feed the Earth and the collective with unconditional love and light.

If you are a new reader of the Transmutation News please read  Creating A Human Web of Light on the homepage for instructions for our monthly ceremonies.

Translating the Transmutation News is a lot of work. Petr Němčanský has been translating the Transmutation News into the Czech language for years now, and it is now time for him to move on.

Please join me in gratitude to Petr Němčanský for translating the Transmutation News into Czech for many years now. His generosity of spirit is a tremendous gift!

And we welcome the new translator Veronika Kucharská who has volunteered to keep the translations going in the Czech language. It is great to have you as part of the team.  

And I have not been diligent in reminding you about our Shamans are Gardeners of Energy Facebook page. It is a wonderful way to be in service to our community by posting inspiring words stories, and images. Also I hope you are inspired by visiting the page and feeling uplifted. To join the Facebook group Shamans Are Gardeners of Energy, go to: https://www.facebook.com/groups/991720834662313. The password is “Transfiguration”. 

Please join me in wishing our circle a beautiful equinox filled with the power of love, hope, and optimism for new things to be born and to let go of what needs to be composted back to the earth. For this is what nature is doing right now.

Please join our circle in a simple but powerful journey to welcome in the equinox. I recorded a short session where you can show up with a drum, rattle, or other instrument to make some shamanic music with. You can even use two sticks to click together, or tap on a book, or create a rattle using stones or seeds and putting them in a bottle. By drumming, rattling, and making music together we will focus on asking the helping spirits to empower our circle and of course through this act be an active participant in radiating love to everyone in our group.

Announcements:

Right now due to the Covid, and the massive airplane cancellations due to weather, lack of pilots, and staff Isis’ statement she made in the 1990s is definitely relevant right now. She said there would come a day when students could not afford to travel to workshops or travel would start to become impossible. Therefore in 2004 I began training wonderful teachers teaching all over the world. Please visit www.shamanicteachers.com to look at the wealth of workshops you can take and are probably close to where you live.

And on www.shamanicteachers.com  you can find shamanic practitioners from all over the world who trained with me who are doing remote healings right now. And many are working with people in person.

I am waiting until I know if I can complete a Practitioner Training while we are still dealing with the Covid and the danger of retreat centers having to close. I am waiting to see how things proceed for the Practitioner Training I will teach at a physical retreat center. As you know I believe teaching advanced healing workshops online is unethical and dangerous. The internet is not a way to transmit the ancient healing practices that can be the difference of life or death in a client’s life.

I still have Evergreen Courses that are already recorded on Journeying and other topics. Check out my Training page for further information.

Please check out my books and audio programs. I have received such great feedback, and they include information and exercises I teach in my workshops.

Transmutation News – February 2022

This is the month where love is celebrated almost universally. It would be a wonderful dream to focus on, of a world where people share love on a daily basis with each other and all of life.

In the past I have always taught that spirits take a form to incarnate on the Earth to manifest a unique talent they wish to express in this lifetime and to experience the beauty and wonder of having a physical form. Spirits can’t see colors, taste food, smell the fragrances of flowers, feel textures, or hear the sounds that bring us so much joy.

But recently I received such a beautiful message from my spirits. They told me that the true reason spirits take form is to be able to feel others’ heartbeats. I thought about this, and I feel this was such a profound message to share. For it is such a joy to experience the heartbeat of the Earth, all of life, and especially our loved ones.

There is so much about being human we just don’t understand. We give so much importance to collecting tangible things and accumulating more of what we don’t really need to find meaning and joy in life. We talk endlessly without appreciating the power of silence.

But we keep using phrases of the importance of evolving into beings that live a life of unconditional love while we tend to support power over, greed, and division.

And most of us are really seeing the devastating effects of so much division being displayed in the world right now. It is really sad to experience so much hate being sent into our collective when we came here to learn about love.

And truly “division” is what is creating our current initiation. For dismemberment happens by some destructive force breaking up life as usual so something new can be reborn out of the death of the life we once knew.

I always wonder how bad things have to get before people wake up to the power of unity, being a presence of light, and emanating love. Imagine how different our lives would if we lived in harmony with each other.

I have found myself disconnecting almost completely from what is going on in the world. There is an energy being projected that does not feel good to be part of.

I keep focusing on the work I have been sharing over the years to bring the feminine principle into balance as the masculine energies continue to run the world. Yes, the feminine can be fierce as we witness in the actions of Kali, Sekmet, and goddesses from other traditions. But the fierceness is to cut through illusion. And we are certainly caught in illusion right now.

When I read most of the arguments that people share about the Covid, politics, race, climate change, and ways of living, it actually seems like people are losing their minds. For so much being shared is from pure ego and not from a true place of spirit. We just have not been here on Earth long enough to understand the complexities and dynamics of spirit and the mysteries of the universe. But so many people are acting like they are privy to so much that we really can’t know in our limited perceptions of life.

I am finding a true state of inner peace by focusing on my spiritual work, spending time writing my new book, and being in nature.

I know many readers want to stay in the “the fight” and this is your destiny to try and engage in the collective and be a voice of change.

As I did this many times in my life, now I am learning about the beauty of silence and peace.

Recently my husband and I were turning off the TV to go to bed. But we got mesmerized by a program that was running on unusual sea creatures. The wonder of all the nature programs is that we can witness the amazing imagination and creativity that went into creating some nature beings. It is just remarkable how unique some of these beings are and you can’t help but be completely taken over with a feeling of awe and wonder when you see some of the beings we share the Earth with.

My favorite part of teaching courses on the Spirits of Nature through the Shift Network was the photos of unusual nature beings people shared. I was in continual wonder as I never imagined the wealth of nature beings most people will never get to see but who are extraordinary.

On the program we were watching one of the beings they were showing were Nautilus. This ancient being is over 500 million years old and has not changed in their evolution much like the dragonfly which I love writing about. These beings have been here so much longer than us, and adapted without making many changes to their form. And although they are impacted by environmental changes they still live their lives as they have for millions of years.

What intrigued me about the Nautilus was not just its unusual appearance but the fact that after spending its days on top of the ocean they drop 2000 feet into the sea to get deep and protected rest.

I was thinking about how I always write about the power of finding quiet and deep rest through silence. Silence is not something we get to experience in this world run by technology which is always creating sounds 24/7. We have to drop really deep into our Inner World as the Nautilus does at night.

And I have encouraged you to drop down deep into yourself to learn about the spiritual strength in your inner landscape and find the silence that not only allows you to rest but a state where you can listen to the directions of your soul and spirit.

I think the more we can do this, we get the energy to evolve, make changes in our lives, and adapt in these changing times.

So when we celebrate Valentine’s Day this year let’s think about all the beings that depend on us to create a new dream by allowing our hearts to open more, embracing all of life. For the continued division will certainly destroy all we love.

And the heartbreak of these times does expand our capacity for compassion, empathy, and love.

Let’s choose to hold the planet and all of life in love during our continuing intense times of the dissolution of a way of life as we have known it.

February 16 is the full moon. Let’s focus on opening our hearts in a way that shows our unlimited capacity to be a being of love and light. And let’s also focus on absorbing the love of the Creator and the creative forces of the universe. For loving ourselves is part of our evolution of consciousness. We tend to be so hard on ourselves which blocks our ability to be a true presence of love and light. For if you judge yourself too harshly how does this impact your presence in our collective energies.

Perform your preparation work so that you can step away from your humanness and transfigure into a divine being that only knows light and love. Emanate this throughout the collective. And feel your heartbeat merging with the love of our circle and the heartbeat of the Earth and the entire web of life.

If you are a new reader of the Transmutation News please read Creating a Human Web of Light on the homepage of this site.

Whether you are spending the day alone or with a loved one let’s wish everyone a happy Valentine’s Day and know that you are truly loved!

For this month’s journey Fotoula Adrimi is bringing a huge gift of retrieving our essence. Fotoula lives and teaches In Scotland. She has a marvelous reputation with all her students. She is one of my trusted teachers, and is one of the teachers I asked to keep my work going when I am gone. I trust her so much and her commitment to responsibility, commitment and integrity.

To learn more about Fotoula and her work please visit her website www.theisisschoolofholistichealth.com.

Here is what Fotoula writes about her recording:

In this recording, Fotoula, guides participants into a shamanic healing journey. The intention is to retrieve the primordial memory of wholeness and heal at soul level. Through the ancient practice of shamanism, the helping spirits offer us a way to retrieve the parts of our essence we are now ready to receive and incorporate into our life, so that we can walk our spiritual path towards the embodiment of our light. Fotoula shares how these ancestral ways were almost lost in her Greek family lineage and voices a heartfelt invite from the ancestors for us to remember this ancient spirituality of the Earth that is part of our human heritage.

Announcements:

Right now due to the Covid, and the massive airplane cancellations due to weather, lack of pilots, and staff, Isis’ statement she made in the 1990s is definitely relevant right now. She said there would come a day when students could not afford to travel to workshops or travel would start to become impossible. Therefore in 2004 I began training wonderful teachers teaching all over the world. Please visit www.shamanicteachers.com to look at the wealth of workshops you can take and are probably close to where you live.

And on www.shamanicteachers.com you can find shamanic practitioners from all over the world who trained with me who are doing remote healings right now. And many are working with people in person.

Transmutation News – January 2022

We join together as a sacred circle to welcome in a New Year filled with new choices that we all must make.

Life feels so surreal to many of us right now. Time does not feel like it is following a linear cycle. But we do use certain markers of time to help us ground, giving us a sense that life keeps moving on in the midst of dissolution and also rebirth cycles.

Many people feel relieved when a New Year is welcomed in. For just celebrating that event helps us put some of our past behind and gives us a sense of something new to look forward to, and we get inspired to regain a sense of hope even though many of us have lost so much during these times of such upheaval that will lead to a different way of life that we can’t quite imagine yet.

I can almost copy every column of the Transmutation News that I write to welcome in a New Year. In fact, I actually said publicly on a summit that I have been writing this column for over 20 years and basically if you read the thousands of pages I wrote, you will notice that I just keep repeating the same lessons and practices. For since I began writing the Transmutation News our world has suffered one trauma after another: sickness, division, war, and atrocities towards others and nature that are beyond our wildest dreams.

This happened in ancient civilizations too that were as advanced as us technologically. And then there were civilizations that had mastered the esoteric and psychic powers to create extraordinary sacred structures and magical ways of life.

Yet something took these civilizations down. In my workshops where we journeyed to some of these ancient civilizations, and we asked what destroyed them the answer was always the same – greed, ego, power over, division.

Over the years I have written about the Anasazi who I believe shifted into another dimension as they all disappeared simultaneously. Looking at artifacts from the land they seem to have all simultaneously disappeared during dinner. These beautiful beings lived 700-1200 AD in New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, and Utah. From my journeys over 30 years, they transcended into a different dimension and are living a peaceful life.

We are once again at a choice point. There were theories that were shared many years ago that the Earth suffered a nuclear war once.

Will we keep making destructive life choices? We seem to be split on this issue. But there are so many spiritual practitioners, like all of you reading this column, that are working on choosing love, light, peace, kindness, and honor for all in the web of life. We perform our ceremonies together and keep taking small steps out of the darkness into the light.

Every New Year people get excited to read about the predictions of the year. Either they are looking for some hope or inspiration or want to know what they will have to prepare for if times get more challenging.

Each year I write that Isis recommends that we don’t read predictions and that we learn how to stay in the present. For the present creates the future. And if you are too focused on what will happen next, you are not creating a new dream for the Earth.

For myself I wish to share a couple of themes to focus on for the year. And these themes are reigniting our spiritual strength and passion for life.

When we are walking through the Dark Night of the Soul the greatest tool we have is being guided by our spiritual light. And as I keep sharing the only way out is through. The power of our inner spiritual fire has the strength to keep us walking so we eventually find our way into the light.

My mother Lee Ingerman was my role model on what spiritual strength can do. I watched her suffer throughout her life, but she never let her spiritual fire go out, and it kept her moving and living to almost 99.

When she was 94 she became ill with a septic infection. One day the doctors at the hospital told me she would not live through the night. So I sat with her all night. In the middle of the night when she was hallucinating, I told her it was okay for her to go. And she sat up so straight in bed and with her fists striking the bed she yelled out loud “I am not ready to leave this life yet!” And she didn’t. But right after she came out of the hospital, she broke one of her hips, and her spiritual strength and her passion for life got her through this event again.

I watched how her spiritual strength and passion for life kept her alive and living a good life until 99. She loved life! When she died her brain was better than mine. I always felt like she had super power as she lived on chocolate, cookies, and Coca Cola.

We cannot deny the power of spiritual strength and passion for life and all that will help carry us through.

We must find the courage to dig deep into our own inner landscape and find your spiritual fire and keep it ignited this year so that your light can carry and guide you into the light whatever dimension of life that spirit brings you to.

In my second book Welcome Home I shared my most powerful soul retrieval case study of working with a young woman dying of HIV. The case study is fascinating and too long for me to repeat here. But I will share the message of my guardian spirit that works with me for healing.

Due to my client’s long history of many illnesses, my guardian spirit said that the cause of her illness was apathy. And that the cure was passion for life. He said her lesson in this lifetime was what occurs when viruses, bacteria have more passion for life than we do. They thrive while we get so ill.

This was a powerful message to share with the world. For my guardian spirit said if viruses and bacteria have more passion than life than we do they thrive!

When you look into the eyes of others do you see the light of passion through the general global population?  Or do you see the emptiness in their eyes? I don’t see most people in the modern world having burning passion for life. I see a lot of apathy, emptinesses, and hopelessness.

How do we survive the times we are in without the fire of spirit and passion for life? This is a question to ponder and to come up with some answers so you can change the reality you are living in right now and rise up to making new choices that will bring health on all levels into your life.

This month I will lead a journey to welcome in a New Year where we can make new choices that change the path we are now walking on.

For those of you who cannot join in with us on the journey you can do this work on your own. What are simple things you can do that will bring passion and meaning back into your life? Make sure you don’t get too grandiose in what you come up with or you will end up procrastinating as you did not create a bridge from where you are now to creating a life filled with spiritual fie and passion.

I hope you will listen to what I have to share, and I will talk more about the case study I mentioned above.

To listen to the recording of this talk on Shamans Are Gardeners of Energy, click on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VWwK9Gm0UyQ or click below.

January 17 is the full moon.  Spiritual healing actually happens by our presence and how our energy field is filled with light, love, spiritual fire, and passion. With your transfiguration practice for this month please do whatever preparation you need so that your eyes light up with the passion of life and of your spirit. And become the light of the stars, sun, or the moon. And let that light radiate in a way that guides all of life through the darkness we are experiencing right now. If you are looking for ways to be in service, well this is a great practice to do. Transformation` is actually easier than the complicated ways we tend to look at to create deep changes.

If you are a new reader of the Transmutation News, please read Creating A Human Web of Light on the homepage for the instructions for our full moon ceremony.

I want to wish everyone the best for the New Year. And I call in the spiritual fire of this circle to assist all of us in looking forward to the great changes and teachings that this New Year will bring! I wish you and your families good health and peace during these times of dissolution and rememberment.

Announcements:

Due to the Covid and all the unknowns I am waiting to make plans for when I can teach a physical workshop. Keep watching the announcements and of course I will send out an email if something changes.

I have been teaching on Zoom since 2015. And it is just not a platform that allows me to go deep enough with my work. So I am keeping to writing a new book and journeying to see how my spirits want to keep sharing the spiritual work that can take us deeply into a new dimension of life.

In the meantime, I have my incredible list of teachers I trained who are teaching a lot over Zoom for in person. Please take a look at the workshops being offered by so many brilliant teachers on www.shamanicteachers.com.  And on this site, you will also see the practitioners I trained that you can receive healing work from to strengthen your spiritual strength.
