Transmutation News – May 2024

I have been on a number of podcasts speaking about Llyn Robert’s and my new book Walking Through Darkness: A Nature-Based Path to Navigating Suffering and Loss.

There are some really deep lessons in this book about darkness, when to fight, surrender, or accept. And obviously some interviewers want to touch on these deeper and most relevant subjects. But I find myself moving every interview back to the first chapter I wrote on which has to do with empowering ourselves by using our intuition in making decisions about our health and life.

For how do you even begin to approach the deeper mysteries of life without first listening and speaking from your intuition and heart instead of your mind?

On one podcast I said I feel like when I go onto social media that I am at a Carnival like my parents took me to when I was young. I know I promote my books and audios a lot too! There are so many voices selling their work and making the promises everyone has to make in the world of promotion.

But the biggest mistake I have made in my most intense initiation of over 9 years now is not listening to my own body. I gave my power away to doctors, all kinds of healers, psychics, shamans, technological devices, supplements, and the list goes on.

I was so busy listening to others there was no way I could hear what my inner voice and what my body was asking for. And when I did start listening, I found my symptoms were starting to change. It has been really extraordinary of the omens and synchronicities starting to happen due to listening to my body.

I also found myself starting to question my own sanity as there were so many other people’s voices in my head – take this product, stop working, keep working, walk, don’t walk, exercise, don’t exercise, you’re not living right, blame, judgement. I got so much conflictual advice I started questioning my own sanity as I could not hear myself anymore. And my intuition has always been my strongest tool, and I just ignored it. Not being able to hear my voice left me feeling completely unanchored and unsupported. I had a lot of support, but none of it was the right kind.

I don’t have any regrets as it all led me to finally listening to myself and seeing the dark side of both the allopathic, functional, and spiritual world of medicine and healing. I feel like I can now hold my own working with all the teachings of the Medicine for the Earth work. I never stopped doing any of my practices. It was just that I did not give them the power to transform my issues. If I had fully dropped in like I did before I began this most recent initiation, I would be in a completely different place now.

There is so much fake news in every arena of the news and in the medical world. There are so many people who are sensitive and psychic and having a hard time maintaining their health on so many levels due the challenges we are going through personally and collectively.

The only way out is through. And the only way I know how to get through is listening to my own inner voice. It never steers me away from the truth and always brings me back to my deep connection to myself and to nature within and without. My intuition has led me through the most incredible challenges, some life threatening.

And now I need it more than ever. And I believe we all do.

There is a lot of chatter and noise from everyone who knows more than you right now. But only you know what is right for you! So trust yourself. I believe this is how we get through.

I feel that trusting our intuition is the first step before we can make a positive change and choice in our lives.

I find that some people’s inner spirit and intuition are leading them to connecting deeper to the Earth and the elements of nature by rewilding and creating natural landscapes for nature beings to live in harmony and love. There are people learning old ways of gardening and cooking and making healing foods. This is what their intuition is leading them towards. And then there are those whose intuition is leading them into jumping fully into politics and the environment and are becoming activists while holding a spiritual perspective. And we have our community that has the love for travel and feels this is the time to see the world.

When we were dealing with lockdowns all over the world an elder from the Santa Clara Pueblo in New Mexico would frequently call me and say, “Tell people to live a simple life.”. I think we all know what that means. And when we learn to trust our intuition, our intuition will always lead us to living a simpler life for this is where health lies.

It is interesting to watch the roles people are taking on as we find our authentic selves by using practices of deep inner listening.

You actually can’t make an error right now as everything happening for all of us is to help us grow!

Here is one of my inspirations that came to me in 2019:

“Ceremony creates energetic building blocks to move us closer to our dreams. One ceremony alone might not do it unless it is destined that it is your time for a miracle.

You have to create a landscape for building a new structure through energetic gardening and tending. Preparing the ground then using ceremony to keep building energetic blocks that grow into a beautiful form and physical landscape over time.

Remember shamans are gardeners of energy so this is what they do. And they create these building blocks through singing incantations — singing certain vibrations that create new energetic forms.”

The full moon is May 23. I know many of you spent the new moon and the solar eclipse in meditation and many of you transfiguring. Transfiguration creates the light behind the challenges. The light always calls us home to our authentic selves of a seed of the creative forces.

Allow yourself to fully drop into your divine light and absorb and ground yourself with the light flowing into each of your cells. Imagine a spark of light that is so shiny and put it in a place of your body that needs healing and let it grow.

And then let your light grow in a profound way that just its very presence travels through every cell of the planet too.

If you are new to our full moon ceremony Creating a Human Web of Light please read the instructions on the homepage.

I do have a lot of announcements this month due to sharing podcasts I have been on for promoting Walking Through Darkness as well as announcing projects of colleagues who I really love their work.

I started the Transmutation News to share knowledge with all of you, not for promotion. But I am also happy to be part of a community that supports each other’s work. So please don’t feel like you need to read announcements if you are not interested in other events.

Announcements:

I do have a lot of announcements this month. Some are old and some are new. I will move some of the older announcements out for this month, so the page is not so long.

I am teaching a short webinar on shamanic journeying for the Theosophical Society on June 22. In our short time together, I will teach how to journey to the Lower World, The Middle World, and the Upper World. People will leave with an introduction to the practice of direct revelation that they can utilize for the rest of your life. https://www.theosophical.org/program/webinars/experiencing-the-shamanic-journey

🌹

I am delighted to teach a webinar hosted by Shamans Portal on July 17. The webinar will be on tools for working through initiations. It is based on my new book Walking Through Darkness and will be very experiential. I am excited about sharing the work with the shamanic community.

My true passion is about uplifting our shamanic community. I know the challenges we are all facing. But  what I learned in going through my initiations is that it is important not to sit down in the dark but to keep moving forward.

To keep moving forward we need to be inspired to remember the beauty of nature and the gifts of being alive no matter how challenging it can be at times. And when we learn how to love ourselves and honor our self-worth our sense of purpose keeps moving us forward.

Being inspired isn’t ignoring the injustices of the world. By feeding on positive images, words, feelings we do more for our immune system and let go of inflammation then any medical advice will help you with.

There are now four FB pages that have inspiration for you.

A beautiful FB page is Shamans Are Gardeners of Energy. Here you will find photos and writings only to uplift and inspire. To join this FB group Shamans Are Gardeners of Energy, go to: https://www.facebook.com/groups/991720834662313. The password is “Transfiguration”. “

This online workshop invites you on a transformative journey with Renee Baribeau, The Practical Shaman, to discover the powerful art of tying wind knots. Once a treasured secret amongst Lapp sailors and wind witches, who created these powerful talismans for guidance, favorable voyages and goal manifestation, wind knots remain in perfect timing for our era of global upheaval and profound imbalance.

Years ago, Judith Orloff would visit Santa Fe, and I got to know her. She is really a wonderful woman who really has a lot to teach about empathy.  Judith Orloff MD’s new book “The Genius of Empathy” she writes how empathy and being an empath has the transformative power to heal ourselves, strengthen our relationships, and help heal the world. Empathy is the medicine the world needs. More information at https://drjudithorloff.com/order-confirmed/genius-of-empathy-book-launch/

I really love Suzanne Geismann’s work. I think she brings true magic into her work creating big transformations for people. I am a true fan!! She has a new book ‘The Awakened Way, Making the Shift to a Divinely Guided Life’

Combining practical tools with powerful evidence and real-world examples, The Awakened Way demonstrates how living a divinely guided life can help anyone.  Long-time seekers (or those just starting the journey) who are committed to living from a higher perspective will find answers in this book.  People deeply grieving the loss of a loved one and desperate to know they still exist will experience the beauty of hope.  Those feeling the weight of despair will gain deeper insight from which joy will start to emerge and become a way of life. The book provides a template for permanent personal transformation, guiding readers from an emptiness that can’t be filled to a fullness that can’t be contained!

The Awakened Way is a ‘how-to guide’ with practical tools, techniques, and evidence to help people lift out of the emotional & physical confines of their earthly circumstances and see life from their Soul’s perspective – where a sense of calm, objectivity and even JOY prevails!

Go to www.theawakenedway.org to learn how to pre-order the book and receive free gifts as Suzanne’s personal ‘thank you!’

And to add to the announcement I did a wonderful interview with Suzanne on her podcast for Walking Through Darkness. It is really a good interview!! You can watch it here: https://youtu.be/u_H0fMXVSdw?si=mQZgx1bK0TJ5dqk-

“The Sacred Web” by Angell Deer is a transformative guide that invites you into the realm of Shamanic wisdom, guiding you in creating and nurturing your sacred shamanic space to mirror the depth of your spiritual journey. 

This book offers a deep dive into the essence of sacred spaces, providing practical advice on choosing locations, decorating with elemental symbols, and incorporating sacred objects to enhance your spiritual connection. 

Through inspirational examples, it serves as a short but wisdom-packed companion for those seeking personal growth, deeper spirituality, and a harmonious blend with the natural and spiritual worlds. 

With its blend of ancient wisdom and practical tips, “The Sacred Web” empowers readers to transform their living spaces into resonating sanctuaries of peace, meditation, and spiritual connection, fostering personal evolution and a deeper bond with the cosmos.

And I had a chance to be on Angell Deer’s podcast to speak about Walking Through Darkness. This is the first podcast I have been on where someone let me talk about my experience.

Angell Deer posts on some of my FB pages. And I always appreciate the wisdom he offers.

We agreed to do a podcast on my new book Walking Through Darkness: A Nature- Based Path to Navigating Suffering and Loss.

Our interview together was right before the spring equinox so what a great time to share it with you.

Here are links if you would like to watch our interview.

And one more podcast!  I had the wonderful opportunity to be interviewed by Valeria from Fit for Joy. We did the interview on Walking Through Darkness. Valeria has a lot of wisdom and I look forward to working with her in the future talking about some other topics as we both could see how deep we both go into the mysteries.

The Shift Network is putting on some interesting certification courses for therapists who are looking to use psychedelics in their treatments. Back “in the day” MDMA was legal while I was a LMFT and still doing couple’s therapy. You did not need a certification to use it. MDMA was a substance anyone could get for any reason.

I did use it for some of my couples that were in therapy with me. The experiences did create some big breakthroughs, but I have always found that using psychedelics you need to do a lot of work to make practical all the beautiful experiences and guidance you receive. They can open doors but then you still have to do the hard work. That is my opinion that I have been sharing on psychedelic summits due to my ongoing experiences using them in my younger years.

But I realize that this is where therapy is going today, and I can see the benefit of working with someone trained to help integrate the experience.

So I agreed to promote this new Shift Network training:

Explore MDMA to Heal Relationships With Heart-to-Heart Communication: Introducing an 8-Month Training to Facilitate MDMA Sessions for Couples

A Free Video Event With Psychotherapist, Speaker & Author Jonathan Robinson, MA, MFT Thursday, May 9, 2024 at 5:30pm Pacific

Experience a groundbreaking approach to transforming relationships with MDMA-assisted therapeutic strategies, delivered safely over the internet.

This workshop has the potential to be beneficial for everyone, including therapists who want to learn how to use MDMA to help couples and want to add this modality to their healing toolkit once it becomes legal… couples who are having trouble in their relationship or are on the brink of divorce… couples who simply want to improve and refresh their relationship… or single folks who have had a few painful relationships and want to heal their wounds and learn new skills. Please note this training is for 30 weeks.

Transmutation News – April 2024

I know most of you feel significant changes in your life, work, and spiritual practices. Although many people I know don’t agree with me, I feel strongly that this world is a play, and we are actresses and actors in this play of life. We play a role for a while and then something happens, and we lose our part and a different role for us emerges. Or we make a conscious decision to remove our old costume and find a role that now suits our level of consciousness.

A metaphor seems to be emerging for me in weaving together conversations on social media, the news, and having deep conversations with others. It feels to me like on many levels the curtains have been closed for some of us. And we are in the wings examining new costumes with new colors and textures and exploring taking on a new part, a new role that reflects the huge changes we have made in consciousness.

I am working with people now who are facing the biggest decisions of their lives and if they will still be alive. I have so many students who are finding new avenues to share what they are learning in their spiritual practices such as creating stronger communities, helping people using spiritual practices who are dying, creating fire ceremonies in their communities to help people learn the power of letting go of a lot of the burdens we carry, and the list goes on.

We have a new generation of practitioners who are not only being trained by human teachers but also are getting amazing new healing information from helping spirits and from Nature itself. And they are stepping into new roles of service as with every new lesson we embrace we change the world around us.

My friend HeatherAsh Amara is truly a brilliant writer and teacher. Recently, in her substack column, she wrote an article about coming out of challenges. HeatherAsh’s land was deeply impacted by one of the biggest fires in the U.S. set by the fire service not paying attention to how high the winds were blowing. Some of the oldest and sacred rural areas of New Mexico were literally destroyed.

 HeatherAsh doesn’t write fluff. She deeply goes into what she is seeing from her perspective and practices and new ways of living we need to adopt as the world changes so rapidly.

In her column, she brings up the issue of spiritual bypass. She questions if only looking at the positive is a healthy way for us to live, and do we sweep under the rug things we can be doing to be in service.

Our perceptions do create our reality. This is one of the main teachings of the Medicine for the Earth work. It is to keep us positive so we can keep moving forward and not sit down in the dark. We can drown in negativity and start projecting it out into the world in very unhealthy ways. And so there is a big role for keeping positive and staying grateful for your life.

Many people today want to do something to help and there are endless ways. There are many of us who are elders who are taking the traditional role of doing deep inner work and preparing for our own death. This takes us into being a true healing presence in the world. Yes, being in meditation, taking walks in nature, and being in deep reflection, or finding inner peace all contribute to the health of the planet.

But are there more ways you can make a difference? HeatherAsh wrote out a list of some simple practices that you can add to the spiritual work you are doing if you are so disturbed by what you are observing in your community and in the world.

From HeatherAsh:

“Three actions every week, one local, one global, one self-care

Volunteer. Donate. Pick up groceries for a neighbor. Call your representatives. Make art. Replenish your inner battery. Reduce your use of the precious, and limited, resources of water, electricity, etc. Support a local business. Help send someone to school. Google “how can I help…” Lean into organizations that are on the ground in the areas you want to support. 

Set aside time each week/day/month to take action in your local community and your global community, AND to replenish yourself.

Drink lots of water, rest, and resource yourself. Find joy where you can. Don’t guilt, shame, or blame yourself or others. Let’s use creativity, intuition, compassion, fierce love, and tenderness as our guides.”

There was a period in my life when I was taking a sabbatical from my work. I wanted to make sandwiches for children at the Food Depot. I had called. I was so excited. I had my hair nets! They were happy to have a new volunteer. Unfortunately, I had a family emergency, and my life went in a different direction for a few beautiful and very challenging years.

But I still find ways to contribute outside of the shamanic work I do and it helps the community I live in which just feels like an act of sacred reciprocity to me.

There is an inner smile that we naturally experience when we reach out to help others.

HeatherAsh’s article is deep beyond my words here. Here is how she ends her writing:

“Remember, beloveds. Both, and. We can’t hide from the hurt and harm happening around us. And we also can’t allow ourselves to drown in our / other’s anger, fear, or struggles. We need to foster creativity and sustainable, willing action. We want to learn how to hold the long view AND take action in the short term. 

These are a few of the heartbreaking things. 

May our hearts break open to more fierce love, more wild compassion, and more willing action towards the local, and global, vision of equality, freedom, and happiness for ALL beings.”

Transmutation News – March 2024

The last couple of months some of you have been reaching out to me about the importance of what I have been sharing about living in the present and also in reflecting on your current connections and seeing who and what you need to disconnect from and what new connections need to be made.

When we connect in healthy ways to others and nature we end up collecting very valuable knowledge. And suddenly this has been very important to me. When walking out in nature and seeing a plant I don’t know I ask what kind of knowledge it has. For I have realized that everything that exists is not only alive but carries knowledge to be shared across species about how we can live on this planet connected fully to the web of life. There is so much knowledge to be gained right now.

As you know I am in love with the elements. And since the elements are the first beings who came onto the Earth imagine the knowledge that they must hold for us on living life in a good way.

All of this loops back to sacred reciprocity and community.

Of course, the first step is to examine the connection we have with ourselves and how to practice sacred reciprocity to give thanks to ourselves for being willing to keep moving forward and doing practices no matter what the outcome is. So much of spiritual work is letting go of outcomes as everything in this world is outside of time although we like to put time in convenient boundaries so we can make sense of the passing phases of life.

You really need to connect with yourself in a way where you feel empowered and are walking forward while trusting your intuition and knowing there is a higher power and order we just don’t understand at this time in our evolution. But our work brings us to a place of realizing that beyond the suffering we are experiencing ourselves and projecting out onto the world, we are actually truly blessed to have an earthly experience where our growth is challenged so deeply. Who will we become when we take charge of our destiny and join in love and kindness with others?

Coming back to the elements that gave us life. As I keep repeating, we are also earth, air, water, and fire. You might know a circle song that is sung around the world:

Earth my Body

Water my Blood

Air my Breath

And

Fire my Spirit

We are the elements and they are also outside of us as well giving us life but at the same time stripping away at our ego and parts of our life that no longer serve the larger earth community.

On March 19 we celebrate the equinox. The illusion of time is quickly passing into a new phase of life where in the Northern Hemisphere we get to see the bounty of the seeds we planted in the fall and winter and in the Southern Hemisphere it is time to prepare for letting go of the old and preparing for rest and renewal.

Isis gave me the suggestion of merging with the elements of Earth, Air, Water, Fire, Lightning, the Moon, the Stars, the Cosmos. Perform these journeys over the month of March and experience what knowledge you absorb from the elements within and without.

If you have never performed a merging journey, it is quite simple. Think of a form of an element you wish to merge with such as a raindrop, the mist, the sea, a pinecone, the land where you live, a flame in a match, a fire forest fire, the sun, the wind caressing your hair, a rock, the land that lightning has touched. I love to merge with ice.

Start with “May I step into your field of energy and learn from you by merging with you?” When you receive a yes as your answer gently imagine becoming this being you are learning about. So you are learning about the element by becoming it versus speaking to it.

You can also perform this as a meditation using some spiritual music to get you into a spiritual space. You can do this outside and experience the merging of all the elements coming together in harmony.

What knowledge can you gain by connecting with the elements in this way? And what can you learn about how the elements work together in perfect harmony? My body is asking for “intelligent” knowledge right now. And I am seeing everything in life as having knowledge to connect with right now. It feels like I am reconnecting to life by sending out strings or webs to nature and finding my spot in the web.

The full moon is March 25. It is the Worm Moon.  Wouldn’t it be fabulous to merge with the moon while transfiguring and adding our power to the power of the moon, stars, and cosmos to emanate light and love to every part of the Earth and all in the web of life. Do your preparation work so you can be in the right state of consciousness to leave this world behind and shine like the light of the moon bringing beauty everywhere to this great earth.

If you are a new reader of the Transmutation News you can find the instructions for our full moon ceremonies on the homepage.

By the way, I wrote a fabulous chapter on Earthworms in Speaking with Nature.

You have probably seen the joke going around Facebook. I have watched it circulate for years. There is a funny comic and two comic book people talking. “What do you think the future will bring?” The future will bring beauty and flowers.” Why do you think this?” “Because that is what I am planting”.

I had to paraphrase this as I don’t remember the exact wording. But as shamans are gardeners of energy we all get this.

Plant during the spring and fall what you want to see grow in the future when the timing is right for the germination of the seeds to blossom into the beauty we all dreamed of. And don’t forget to get rest, sun, and nurturance on all levels to feel fed by nature and by the elements of life.

Join me in wishing our global circle a beautiful equinox!

And I am delighted to announce we found new French translators. Please join me on thanking Laurence and Karine for bringing the Transmutation News to our French readers.

Transmutation News – February 2024

Back in the early 2000’s Isis gave me a powerful message. She said that since I come from a tribal ancestry, I wait for everyone to keep up with me on our walks into a new way of living. I have heard this from other psychics who did readings for me. They all chastised me for doing this. But of course, I would never ignore a serious and important message Isis shared with me.

I have thought a lot about this during the time we are in. For I really do believe we are walking into a new way of life together. But I have also written that you can’t save a drowning person, or you will drown too.

So I ponder on Isis’ message but also feel that this is a time for us to walk as a spiritual community together. It does not mean that we try to save everyone during our walk. But we can inspire them by giving them words of power and cheering them on. There have always been friends and relatives praying for a loved one going through an initiation.

I do believe we are creating a new paradigm that is one of the positive sides of social media in being able to show support across the landscapes and seas of this Earth.

I do believe that we have incredible potential as we walk together. We have all gained so many tools during the last few years as our collective initiation really went to a new level of challenging us to let go of our past, let our ego be stripped, and put on our true garment that is the most brilliant divine light that even our eyes can’t gaze upon.

There is so much brilliant work that everyone has done in their own way by transforming yourself through a course you took, or reading an empowering book, listening to lectures of old and new wise ones, meditating, spending time in nature and relating, truly connecting with it, and giving offerings of thanks in sacred reciprocity.  And using direct revelation to allow your spirits to guide you and bring up the issues you must heal before going forward. Of course, many of you made big changes through your night dreams.

If you take some time to stop and reflect on where you started and where you are now you have to be in a state of awe of the deep work you have done. Will it change what is happening in the destruction of the collective – we know all the positive love that floods into the collective does create transformation but when is the question?

For us we can’t just focus on the dense side of the collective who has not been touched by the preciousness of every being living on this great Earth. But as we change we do step into a different dimension of reality and we don’t bring our worries with us. We bring with us what we love about life and the beauty and love that all of life came into here to experience.  

To continue a bit on this theme Isis spoke to me about “connections”. She asked me to look at the connections I have made and what connections I need to let go of. And many of you contacted me about how profound the practice of staying completely present and focusing on your present feelings has been for you.

When we do stay present in this way we do need to make new connections to our present. Life is about connections. We are awed by all the information of how tree roots make connections with each other and help each other in times of trouble. We are amazed at all the fascinating information coming out on how mushrooms create such important life-giving support underground.

Are our connections healthy in our lives right now? Do we need to establish new connections for our health? How connected are we to Source and to our inner Source? How connected are we to Earth, Wind, Fire, Water? How connected are we to our helping spirits and our spiritual ceremonies? How connected are we to the land we live on even if we live in a city? Do you perform simple daily rituals to connect to yourself, your helping spirits, your ancestors, and the land?

In the times we live in there is an understanding about the gut and brain connection. If you have stomach issues, they affect your brain. And this is the most popular medical information being shared today. We are looking at how disconnected we are on so many levels – our bodies, our spiritual practices, our connection between our mind, ego, heart, and our inner spirit and soul.

I believe if we examine our connections and what is unhealthy and the new connections to be made, we will step into a new state of health on all levels. For we are experiencing so much disconnection in ourselves and to the world at large forging new connections might just bring us back to a state of harmony.

On this next full moon February 24, let’s deepen our transfiguration practice so that we do feel we have a robe or a costume over our brilliant divine light that once removed brings a new dimension of reality of life. Perform your preparation work. Don’t forget that it is the state you are in that allows the light to be absorbed by you and emanated in a way that holds all of life in the web of life in light and love.

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

Although I am delighted about returning to in-person teaching in 2024, I also have a workshop I would like to teach online. When I teach my own workshops online through Sylvia Edwards hosting me, I only advertise through dedicated emails. If you would like to sign up for future courses, you have a better chance of getting in if you find out first through a dedicated email.

Transmutation News – January 2024

Welcome to the 25th year of the Transmutation News! What a journey we have been on together! And the adventure never stops.

The river of life continues to flow, and new phases of life will be experienced and new opportunities to grow and evolve will continue to be reflected back to us. Time is an illusion so there is not a clear start or magic that occurs because we step into a New Year. We just continue to move forward.

So many choices to make among the turbulent waves so many are navigating right now. There are more wars being waged on the planet since 1945. The division grows as the spiritual community attempts to emanate love and light. But the spiritual community has become fractured. I have always seen division in shamanism, but now we are seeing shamanic teachers saying I am the only one who knows what shamanism is. Only study with me.

So division has taken hold in our most sacred spaces. And if there is one thing we are all being called to do, it is to be a role model that we are all a reflection of Source, and we all came here to add our energetic signature and love to the web of life. For we are all one.

It is always an interesting exercise to watch our process as we judge. If there is truly only oneness then we must travel within to meet the same parts of ourselves we are projecting out to be healed as we face the ego’s illusion of separateness.

This is big work. As I have shared before Isis asks me to stay in the present second to second, to process my feelings and take them deeper into my Inner World to be transformed so that I am free of the aspects that keep me from moving to new levels of awareness and perceptions about life.

Remember this foundational Medicine for the Earth teaching – Our perception creates our reality.

What are you perceiving right now and what do you need to transmute and transform as the river of life moves through the turbulence bringing you to a place of beauty, awe, and wonder if you change your words, thoughts, and daydreams and your negative projections?

I actually can go on and on, but I feel this is the work we are being called to do. For our ego is literally tearing reality as we know it apart. Maybe this is a good thing. But the one thing we know about Initiations is they are to tear and strip the ego down. I wonder how far we have to go to finally surrender to the power of spirit.

I invite you to join me in allowing our ego to be stripped and to remember the beauty our soul and spirit came here to express. There is more than one dimension of reality. And we can step through to a life of honoring the elements and the Earth that give us life. As we do this sacred reciprocity returns as I wrote about in the December Transmutation News. And we all enter a new, beautiful world together.

We all have some big choices and decisions to make right now. Journey to your soul and ask it for help and why it chose to be born during this time. What did you come here to do and experience? Your soul knows. Trust the information you receive and allow your divine spirit to help you manifest that next step into a new life.

The full moon is January 25. Remembering there is no separation but only one how can you deepen your transfiguration practice for our full moon ceremony Creating a Web of Light so that we are one spirit flooding all with love and light that knows how to heal. We put on robes to play a part in life. I for one am joining with others to create a new play of life.

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

Personally, I feel the greatest act I can take right now is holding space. I know when I have been in any time of trouble the greatest support, I have received is people holding space for me. If you are a good space holder, join me. It is a gift we can give the world right now.

I emanate love, light, and send blessings to all of you as we move forward as a loving community in the year to come. Join me in wishing our sacred community all the best as this New Year encourages us to go even deeper with our sacred work.

Announcements:

There is still some time to sign up for my Four Week Course on shamanic journeying hosted by by the Shift Network. We will journey to the Lower World, Middle World, and Upper World and have our last session on Transfiguration. Every time I teach a journeying course through the Shift Network my spirits change the teaching a bit to help people travel just a little deeper into the unseen realms as they can perceive where people in the modern-day world are getting stuck, or that they are missing wisdom about shamanic journeying and direct revelation.

The course is titled: Shamanic Journeying for Healing: Traverse Worlds to Connect with Helping Spirits & Nature Beings for Hope, Healing & Guidance.

My new book Walking Through Darkness: A Nature-Based Path to Navigating Suffering and Loss, co-written with Llyn Roberts will be coming out in February but is now ready to preorder on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. You could do me a favor by ordering off of my website under Books and Audio Programs.

I have been through quite the 9-year journey and did not give up. I kept teaching, presenting on summits, working on clients, helping people on FB, and the list goes on. If you like my work and find it meaningful, I ask you to reach into your heart and if you feel called to join me in helping people walk through the dark night of the soul, please consider buying my book and maybe one or more for a friend. It is filled with so many tools for the times we are in.

May the teachings in this book help you walk wakefully as you find your way back home.

“Every one of us experiences periods of pain and loss in our life—dark nights of the soul. This is a groundless territory where one feels directionless and devoid of tools, with no sense of how to take the next step. In ancient times, elders guided their communities through life’s initiations and challenges, paths we must all take to transform and grow. In Walking through Darkness, legendary shamanic experts Sandra Ingerman and Llyn Roberts help us forge a pathway through the dark—as we embrace nature as our guide and healer. Sandra and Llyn share metaphorical stories that engage animals, plants, trees, and other aspects of nature. Through the feminine process of circular joint storytelling, they weave the rich tales of their own experiences alongside wisdom that they have gathered for years from their own studies, as well as from healers around the globe. Through teachings from the land, the sky, the sea, and the spiritual world, this sensitive and empowering guide opens us to our spiritual light so that we can face our greatest challenges with courage and love—no matter what they are.”

My One Year Advanced Shamanic Healing Practitioner Training is full. And we have a waiting list. If something changes and spots open due to dropouts I will let people know that there might be some spaces open. We do have a committed group. But I never know what the future holds.

If interested in such a training taught by the teachers I trained, please visit my website www.shamanicteachers.com where there are a variety of workshops that teach the same material I am teaching in the One-Year Training.

Transmutation News – December 2023

Over the years I have reached out to so many practitioners and doctors to get help for a disorder I have been dealing with. I got so filled with information and no treatments ever worked for me.

One night Isis came to me and said the issue of why I am not healing is that my past has moved into my present. She said no matter how bad things were for me in my past I have to let them go, as I can’t heal while I am still carrying my past around with me. And she said this is also true of my ongoing work with her to learn about multiple dimensions and how you can travel between them. She said you can’t do that while carrying your past.

Isis shared that I must move into the present now completely. Well, that is great advice. But staying present to every moment has not been one of my greatest gifts. But I am doing it. I want to follow the beauty of Isis’ advice as she is leading me on a new path.

What I am doing is taking even a minute to just tune into how I am feeling right now. And what I am finding is suddenly I can hear my body talking to me and instructing me on what it needs. I am also learning how to set stronger boundaries based on what my body needs.

I have written in earlier columns about learning how to listen to your inner voice. And if there was ever a time to listen to your inner voice the time is now for too many reasons to list.

Nature brings us into the present. Finding a meditation or breathing practice can bring you into the present as well as shamanic journeying of course. I am just taking time out of my day and stopping and asking my body what it has to share, what emotions am I swallowing, and who I am blaming for all my troubles. Finding the time to just tune in and letting go of the blame and judgment and moving exactly into the present moment is where I believe our greatest healing lies.

I wrote about trusting your intuition in my book that I co-wrote with Llyn Roberts. It is titled Walking Through Darkness: A Nature Based Path of Navigation Suffering and Loss. It is being published by Sterling. It will be released in February, but it is available to pre-order now. I will add this to my announcements.

As you know I hold strongly to my opinion that the elements give us life, and we must find ways to thank them for all they give to us. We experience the heartbeat of love, food, being immersed in beauty for the Earth and how do we thank her? We love feeling the wind caress us. Such an ancient being that brings us the air we need to breathe. It makes us laugh when we are sad. And it carries us along. The sun gives us all the energy we need. And we love the sun and feeling its warmth on our body and face and how it just can melt troubles and pain away from us, transmuting all energies into love and light. And our precious sea who gave birth to us, we love you so much for the life you bring to us, we love your beauty, we love the song of different bodies of water. We give thanks to you for all you do for us. Lightning turns anything it touches into holy ground and helps clear negative energy from us and the land.

When we begin to ask the question of how I give love back to you for all you give me to heal and for me to thrive in life we begin to understand that this is the most sacred foundational shamanic principle of sacred reciprocity.

I have written in past columns how I contemplate on how the elements might be our creator gods and goddesses.

But how do we thank them for all they give us? You know the answer. So why are we so surprised about climate change? What would happen if we joined together every morning – every living being giving thanks upon awakening…

I love watching birds high up in a tree greeting sunrise and then as the sun is setting taking in that last bit of warmth with their faces gazing upon the sun.

All living beings live in sacred reciprocity.

What happened to humans? How are you performing sacred reciprocity in your own life? Do you find yourself being around people who you always give to? Is it time to receive something in return even if it is not from the same person? That is how sacred reciprocity works. When you live a life of honor, harmony, and balance the offering of thanks that comes back to you might come from an unexpected person or situation.

Sacred reciprocity is about a balanced exchange of energy. And in our culture to reciprocate usually means to pay for something. What if we took money out of the mix and looked at other ways to exchange energies as a way of offering love and thanks?

For the month of December which we all treat as a sacred time – a time of going within to deepen and nurture your inner landscape. Reflect on giving thanks from the heart in balance. If you are a person who tends to take more than you give back, you might want to try giving some offerings of thanks on the solstice. If you over-give, focus on receiving and absorbing from nature and what gifts are being offered to you by others. Watch what changes happen in your life as you do this. The elements, all of nature, the sky beings, people, and so on.

Really focus on your relationships with everything in life. And always remember to give thanks but from the heart. We give a lot of superficial thank you’s in this culture. I actually believe “thank you” should be removed from how we speak, as it does not mean much these days if the words just roll off of your tongue and there is no passion or true emotion being expressed. Use your creativity to imagine what a gift coming back to you or being given would look like.

The solstice is on December 21, and is a special time to do this kind of work. Whether you are celebrating winter or summer make it a season of giving offerings of heartfelt thanks and making sure to balance that out with absorbing all the goodness you receive from your practice of sacred reciprocity.

I also wanted to share that the Facebook page Shamans Are Gardeners of Energy is really growing in such a beautiful way to be fed if you are feeling that you need to feed on some positive expressions of love and the beauty of nature.

There are so many personal and collective challenges in life I love having that page to return to during the day and remembering what the beauty of life is about. If you would like to join it is a private group. The password is “transfiguration”. The name of the group is Shamans Are Gardeners of Energy.

The full moon is December 26. We are in such deep turmoil on the planet. And I know everyone holds different communities impacted close to their hearts. So please do prepare in the most sacred of ways leaving your mind and ego at the door so you can fully take off the robes of your body and be in a state of awe of the blinding light that lives within.

And with that light absorb all you need for yourself and then join our circle in emanating that light into every part of the Earth stimulating sparkly light touching all in the web of life.

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

Join me as we wish all of our circle and their loved ones a safe and beautiful time as we end this year and leave behind what keeps us from staying in the present where the messages of help that are being given are so ever-present, if we just stop and listen.

I want to thank our translators for the effort they put into bringing the Transmutation News to so many countries. Let us with true unconditional love in our hearts thank them for the time and energy they put in so people around the world can be inspired by what is shared in the Transmutation News.

We are going into our 25th year!!

None of this would be happening without Sylvia Edwards. For one she helps to keep me focused and sane! Not an easy job. And she adds so much beauty, love, and light to the column.

Announcements:

My new book Walking Through Darkness: A Nature-Based Path to Navigating Suffering and Loss co-written with Llyn Roberts will be coming out in February but is now ready to preorder on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. You could do me a favor by ordering off of my website under Books and Audio Programs.

I have been through quite the 9-year journey and did not give up. I kept teaching, presenting on summits, working on clients, helping people on FB, and the list goes on. If you like my work and find it meaningful, I ask you to reach into your heart and if you feel called to join me in helping people walk through the dark night of the soul, please consider buying my book and maybe one or more for a friend. It is filled with so many tools for the times we are in.

May the teachings in this book help you walk wakefully as you find your way back home.

Every one of us experiences periods of pain and loss in our life—dark nights of the soul. This is a groundless territory where one feels directionless and devoid of tools, with no sense of how to take the next step. In ancient times, elders guided their communities through life’s initiations and challenges, paths we must all take to transform and grow. In Walking through Darkness, legendary shamanic experts Sandra Ingerman and Llyn Roberts help us forge a pathway through the dark—as we embrace nature as our guide and healer. Sandra and Llyn share metaphorical stories that engage animals, plants, trees, and other aspects of nature. Through the feminine process of circular joint storytelling, they weave the rich tales of their own experiences alongside wisdom that they have gathered for years from their own studies, as well as from healers around the globe. Through teachings from the land, the sky, the sea, and the spiritual world, this sensitive and empowering guide opens us to our spiritual light so that we can face our greatest challenges with courage and love—no matter what they are. 

My One Year Advanced Shamanic Healing Practitioner Training will take place at the Chi Center beginning in April 2024. We have been flooded with applications. But since we said the cutoff for applications is December 15 you still have a chance to get on a waiting list. In my experience, many people drop out and I can get most of my waiting list in, especially in the world we live in today.
For questions, more information, and an application, please email Sylvia Edwards at info@sandraingerman.com. Please include your full name and email address.

Please note: That due to my age and health, this is the last Advanced Practitioner Training I will be teaching. But you will always be able to find a shamanic teacher trained by me and trusted by me on www.shamanicteachers.com.

Please remember to watch The Shamans Cave. Renee Baribeau and I are in our fifth year of our podcast, and we keep getting stronger and more passionate about the topics we feel are important to discuss right now. For a schedule of our shows visit www.ShamansTV.com.  You can really help us out by subscribing to our show and commenting when you watch or listen to it.

And if you are looking for a shamanic practitioner or teacher that I have trained, refer to, and believe in please visit www.shamanicteachers.com. Teachers and practitioners are working in person or remotely.

Transmutation News – November 2023

I am delighted to announce that it is official that I will be teaching an in-person only Advanced Shamanic Healing Practitioner workshop in 2024. If you are truly interested, please read the Announcement Section.

One of the issues many of us face growing up in the collective we were born into is we tend to blame and judge others, but often we are the hardest on ourselves. Learning to be compassionate with ourselves can lead to profound healing.

As a therapist I keep researching different models of healing, and I am finding that some of the family systems work, and other therapeutic practices have some similarities to a practice I learned in the 1980’s in graduate school. I took a one-year class on psychosynthesis. I really loved it. Psychosynthesis was created by an Italian psychiatrist named Roberto Assagioli.

I think one of the reasons I loved this form of therapy is that some of the practices are so shamanic. Roberto Assagioli had you journeying to the top of a mountain to meet a wise person or teacher who could answer your questions.

One of his exercises I will share with you here. I loved doing it. And I added one more shamanic element to it. Roberto Assagioli taught that we all have sub personalities. I know today other models are bringing this concept in.

We have parts of ourselves that love, parts that judge, parts that blame, a part of us that tries to keep the peace, the judge, the critic, the sensitive one……. You get the point.

And then a powerful practice, that we will perform, is to invite all your sub personalities to a party “mediated” by your helping spirits.

When I used to do this practice, I would find I could not get into the room with all my sub personalities.

You need to add a sense of humor into this. For the point is to see how different voices from within make decisions in your life and sculpt your path. For example, if you have a sub personality that feels you are unworthy how are you going to create what you desire in life?

It is good to reflect on the parts of us that support us and block us in our journey through life.

You might start this practice by journeying, meditating, journaling, taking nature walks to gather information, which all will give a true look into your inner landscape. What is going on in there? What inner voices are talking all the time in a looping fashion?

And then use your imagination to create a party with the help of your helping spirits. Ask them for help in creating a journey that has a room with all your sub personalities and “schmooze” with them. Talk to them and learn what they have to say.

And then ask your helping spirits to help transmute the energies inside your inner landscape that don’t work for your highest benefit as you reach for a life filled with unconditional love for yourself and life itself.

Try the practice. It might become a regular practice for you.

The full moon is November 27. Please do your preparation practices to make sure that no egoic parts of you are distracting you from the deeper work that can actually produce positive results and create positive change.

Imagine your body as a costume. And allow yourself to free yourself of the costume and experience the most brilliant light circulating through you and emanating into the collective touching every part of this great Earth.

If you are a new reader of The Transmutation News please read Creating A Human Web of Light for instructions on our full moon ceremonies. This is on our homepage.

In parts of the world, we celebrate Thanksgiving this month. As a circle let’s join together to wish each other a warm and joyful Thanksgiving filled with love, gratitude, and the company of a loving community and family. May your day be blessed with moments of happiness and togetherness. And may we all find the inner places within us where we feel gratitude for ourselves and all we have been through in our lives to have brought us to the place we are now – living in a higher consciousness and knowing so much going on around us is an illusion just lie a dream which we all have the power to change.

Announcements:

I am delighted to announce that applications are now ready to be sent out for my One Year Advanced Shamanic Healing Practitioner Training. It will take place for 6 days April 21-27, 2024 and 5 days in September 15-20, 2024. The first 6-day training will cover Medicine for the Earth and Healing with Spiritual Light, how to perform extractions, and a training on working with the dying. The second week will be completely devoted to my entire Soul Retrieval Training. Participants who show true promise with the work will be able to send in case studies in order to be listed on www.shamanicteachers.com and will have first choice in applying for my Two-Year Teacher Training.

Please only apply if you are planning to be a shamanic practitioner and take this work into the world. It is not a training to take for personal healing. It is a professional training to learn how to be a shamanic practitioner working from your highest place of integrity while being a hollow bone and vessel for the divine spirits who perform the healing work for our clients.

Transmutation News – October 2023

I have quite the history with using psychedelics. I started as a young teenager. LSD, mescaline, mushrooms, and a host of other substances. And then later on, I added ketamine and MDMA to my spiritual explorations. My experiences with psychedelics really opened me up to a completely different way of viewing life and the world.

I was one of the lucky ones, I guess. I never had a bad experience. I always spent my time on sacred medicines in nature or at a Grateful Dead concert. I only experienced oneness and unconditional love from Source. I became completely telepathic at times and could read people’s minds.

Once I reached my 30s, I noticed my body was aching when I came off of these amazing spiritual journeys where I might sit by a river for 8 hours, or walk 10 miles, or just focus on the music and the rhythm of the heavens where there was only love.

For me, my experience underscores the importance of consciousness and the need for a deeper understanding of our place in the cosmos.

Once I turned about 33 I really needed to stop taking these mind-opening substances. They shaped my life, and the path I ended up taking. I am really grateful for the time I spent embraced by the love of these sacred allies.

Then in the 1980s, I had to get major dental work. And my dentist offered me nitrous oxide. Of course, I said yes.

It was amazing what unfolded next. Lots of spirits started talking to me as fast as they could. They said since I stopped taking sacred medicines, they have not been able to talk to me as they wanted. Too much ego and ordinary reality life were in the way of being able to hear the beauty of such an amazing group of spirits speaking.

First, they said you realize that this was all an experiment. They said you can see the experiment is not working out well, and you understand what needs to happen. I replied that I did understand what needed to happen in the future. Of course, time had no meaning during my time with these spiritual allies.

What they shared with me next is something I think about every day. They told me when we have expanded levels of consciousness, especially using sacred medicines, we think we entered into a state of Reality. But what they said if anyone actually crossed the veil of Illusion into Reality, their thoughts would manifest instantly. They had no way to explain how quickly we would manifest any thought in less than a billionth of a second.  

And who has the level of consciousness to enter into the level of Reality and not create chaos?

Of course, I understood this. How could one not?

So many of us do our spiritual practices with the assumption that we are getting close to a sense of Reality. Sometimes it is good to reflect on that we live in this gigantic universe filled with so many mysteries. And to even touch on one mystery is true grace.

This universe is always creating every minute. We think we have entered a new season, but the seasons have been actually changing every day. We can see as we watch that nature is changing all the time not just on the equinox and solstices.

The seasons of our life are also changing every day. Change is happening as we all are flowing in the river of life, and you can’t stop the flow of the river.

Our greatest lessons might now come from lying on the Earth every day and noticing what changes happen daily. What do you feel, what do you smell, can you see slight changes in the colors of the plant life around you? Do you notice certain birds migrating at unexpected times? Does the air quality change? And I am not talking about pollution, but yes, pollution does dull our senses. How do the waters where you live change constantly? Do you ever watch them resist or do they continue carrying on? And how do you notice changes in the sunlight over the coming days, weeks, and months?

When we can attune completely to Nature, we find our own rhythm in life again. And once we find our rhythm in life again there is nothing stopping us from dancing to the wonder of life. We are the river of life. And once we enter into that flow and dance with the changes that are occurring second by second orchestrated by our incredible universe, it brings us to a place of humbleness and leads us to wanting to know how to work with the magic of the universe. For the universe is manifesting amazing magic every day.

The idea that we are constantly evolving and changing, much like the seasons and the natural world, is a powerful reminder of the interconnectedness of all things. It’s true that attuning to Nature and its ever-changing rhythms can help us find our own place in the grand tapestry of existence.

Embracing the magic of the universe and dancing with its changes is a beautiful way to approach life with humility and wonder. May your continued journey be filled with exploration, growth, and a deeper connection to the mysteries of existence.

On a fun note, my husband and I saw a “rare bird” at our feeder. Woods took photos of it. But the photo was hard to capture. We needed to show that the bird had a blue head in order to verify that a Painted Bunting had become a temporary visitor at our home. It stayed around for about a week and then flew off hopefully to find its friends.

The bird store in town wanted to allow people to come to our house and camp out to try and get a sighting of the exquisite bird. Well, we were not going to allow this. But my husband Woods got a mention in our local newspaper:

                       Painted Bunting

A UFO was spotted at a feeder on Old Santa Fe Trail August 14! The gorgeous bird had a jaw-dropping rainbow of colors – a brilliant blue head, green body and red rump and belly. Yes, a Painted Bunting, a relatively rare visitor to Santa Fe. They are common in the South-Central U.S and in the coastal southeast where I spotted my first Painted Bunting 27 years ago. You will never forget the place and date when you spotted your first Painted Bunting! The New Mexico population is limited to scattered riparian and desert shrub locations in the south and east. What a rare treat to see one in Santa Fe!

The full moon is October 28. Let’s gather our sacred and spiritual energies together in a universal ball of light filled with the brilliance of Source and the power of the universe. Let our brilliant inner light dance with the light of life filling all with a sense of being held in unconditional love.

Announcements:

The One Year Shamanic Healing Practitioner Training will take place at the Chi Center beginning in April 2024. We will be sending out an announcement with the details mid October so stay tuned! I am so excited. I never unpacked my supplies from the last workshop I taught in person, so I am ready to go.

I am delighted to let everyone know Shamanic Journeying: A Beginner’s Guide is out in Korean.

When I updated my app Transmutation to Healing Your Thoughts, I always knew it would only work for a limited time on some phones. And I shared this information at the time. With how fast phones are updating app creators have to keep updating apps. This was never a business for me. The app costs 1.99 for a lifetime, and I have put in over $40,000 creating these two apps.

This is all to say I just found out that as of last August 31 the app will no longer be available to be installed on devices with an Android version higher than version 6. The app will disappear from the App Store from anybody who uses a phone with Android higher than 6.

I am keeping my usual announcements out of this month’s column due to not wanting to take up too much space.

But please remember to watch The Shamans Cave. Renee Baribeau and I are in our fifth year of our podcast, and we keep getting stronger and more passionate about the topics we feel are important to discuss right now. For a schedule of our shows visit ShamansTV.com.

And if you are looking for a shamanic practitioner or teacher that I have trained, refer to, and believe in please visit www.shamanicteachers.com. Teachers and practitioners are working in person or remotely.

Finish the Year Strong: An Online Expedition Guided By Nature’s Wisdom and Renee Baribeau

Begins Wednesday, October 4th

https://thepracticalshaman.com/finish-the-year-strong-practical-shaman/

Mark Lewis Wagner gifts us with a true embodied experience of a world Mark imagines and dreams about. A world with less War and more Art, of human initiation. His vision, amazing artwork, the power of the journey by adding a soundtrack is simply brilliant! My heart was so touched by reading Graffiti Wars – When Art Saved the World. I know everyone who reads this will be amazed by the heart and art in this book, and the deeper medicine and meaning in the story being told.

Druidry, the ancient path of wisdom and insight that was forged in the heart of the British Isles, is a spiritual tradition like no other. Its lessons, veiled in the lore of the land and the cycle of the seasons, speak to our deepest selves, helping us navigate the turbulence of modern life so we can reconnect with the ageless wisdom of the Earth.

It’s intertwined with Celtic Shamanism, often encompassing shamanistic elements, such as journeying to other realms and communicating with the spirit world, in its rituals and teachings — highlighting the deep-seated spiritual bond between the Celts and their environment.

On Tuesday, September 12, Philip Carr-Gomm, an acclaimed expert in the fields of psychology and Druidry, guided participants into the mystical undercurrents of Druidry.

But you can still sign up for his course which begins October 4.

THIS YEAR:

Relationships – The Source of Life and the Healing of Our Exhausted World

Online 09/22/2023 to 10/01/2023

https://summit.mathiasberner.de/

The free Inner Evolution Summit 2023 takes place from 09/22/2023 to 10/01/2023. 

Nearly 60 world-renowned doctors, healers, and scientists will share their extensive knowledge with you! I am a presenter on this most interesting summit.

We are looking forward to a summit that will offer solutions in these turbulent times. Solutions that are due now to make a mark.

The world is at a stage where we can reapply ancient knowledge in the light of science.

Healing that includes the human being and his soul will make a health industry superfluous that puts profit before the interests of the people. The materialistic world view is just leading itself “ad absurdum”. Thinking in the categories of “good and evil” is outdated and just shows us its helplessness.Glück, Fülle, Intuition und Wohlwollen werden dieses Vakuum ersetzen.

After this summit, you will know what you can do now for yourself and your fellow men.

You will get a vision of why we as humanity are standing here right now and what opportunity is being revealed.

Attending this summit will be of great help and enrichment to you, your colleagues, friends, and patients.

We have 11 wonderful English speakers with us and we will also be translating some German interviews into English.

There is also exciting and helpful bonus material such as studies, exercises, and meditation instructions, entire interviews are summarized in writing, and much more.

Transmutation News – September 2023

I have so many ongoing projects. My new book, which I have not told you about yet, is ready for the printer. I am working on an app with Quincy Davis, a hip hop artist. We want to introduce troubled youth to simple shamanic practices to help them access tools that can be empowering. I am also working on a new audio recording for Sounds True.

I kept being distracted by my wonderful projects that I am so excited about that hold so much meaning for me. I kept putting on my calendar to write the September Transmutation News. But my day would end before I could start.

And then of course the news of so many tragic events like the fire in Maui and fires and climatic events all over the world. It was hard for me to hold my focus.

What does one even say in the midst of so many crises? I feel like I have said it all since I started writing the Transmutation News in 2000!

The only thing I can possibly say is to keep up your spiritual work. Keep up your work in educating others to the dire condition we are in and tools to help remedy it.

And we join our hearts together to bless all the beings that lost their lives during these real-life changing times. As you know there was so much, we could have done. But that is the past. Now we must look forward and recommit ourselves to our minute-to-minute spiritual practices and performing ceremonies to bring harmony and peace back to the planet.

For now, I want to share a ceremony we can all perform to welcome in the Fall/Spring equinox. It is amazing to think that we are welcoming in a new season of change on September 23.

Personally, I do like to perform ceremonies in nature in a park, by the ocean, by a river, lake, or forest clearing. You can perform your ceremonies in a park in an urban area unless you want to take an adventure into your location in nature that might require a drive from your home.

As you know with all ceremonial work, I suggest you set up an altar. If you create an altar outside, you might want to place a cloth or blanket on the ground. Collect elements from nature that represent the season you are welcoming in.

In the Northern Hemisphere, use fallen leaves, acorns, pinecones, flowers that are lying on the earth. If you live in the Southern Hemisphere maybe there are new flowers coming up and you can ask permission if you can pick one or two for your sacred altar. I actually like to put a little bowl of water, earth, and something to represent air and fire on my altar. I am one that adds particular caution to using candles outside unless they remain unlit.

If you are working inside you know how to create an altar – lighting a candle, placing photos of your ancestors, placing objects from nature that honor the land you live on, incense for clearing your space that also prepares you for stepping into sacred work. You can create a small offering bowl inside with some foods or objects from nature that represent the season you are honoring. As you know I use blue corn meal for my offering bowls as well as my gift to nature as I walk the land admiring the intense beauty and change in energy I feel as we enter a new season.

Then of course, if you are new to performing ceremonies you can look at my article on Preparing for Ceremonial work. The article includes setting up an altar and a lot of the material I shared in this column.   https://www.sandraingerman.com/transmutation-news/english/shamanic-ceremony/preparing-for-ceremonial-work/

Start by singing, dancing, allowing your breath and body to flow letting go of all your cares for now so you can be completely present while performing your sacred work. Remember to call in your helping spirits to witness and support your work. This makes a big difference in how your ceremonies are perceived in the unseen realms.

Reflect on the changing season and the balance between light and darkness. Think about the beauty of nature’s transformation. Remember you are transforming in the same way. You are Earth, Air, Water, and Fire. The elements within and without give us the life force we need to thrive and survive.

Most of all remember to give gratitude. I know so many of you are experiencing disturbing challenges in life right now. But the best healing you can perform is to give gratitude for your life and the good things that life has brought you.

For fall what did you harvest in your life?  For spring what seeds for the season do you wish to plant?  Reflect on this in both literal and metaphorical terms.

And it is important as we continue our work with creation and manifestation to write down a few reflections on the past season and your goals for the upcoming one. What have you harvested in your life? What would you like to cultivate and manifest during the coming months?

And don’t forget to close your ceremony by giving thanks to the helping spirits, all the elements that give us life, thank yourself and give yourself gratitude for connecting so deeply with nature which is what the fate of our life requires right now.

Don’t forget to spend time in nature on the equinox.

Some people like to work alone, and some people enjoy participating in community ceremonies. If you work with a community, a beautiful way to end a ceremony is by sharing some delicious food you all bring.

And remember shamanism is a practice of direct revelation. We have very experienced practitioners of shamanism reading the Transmutation News and some very new to the work. Make the ceremony your own.

If you don’t want to perform any ceremonies at least give thanks for your life and honor the change in seasons in your own way.

As you know I believe with all my heart and soul if we gave thanks to Earth, Air, Water, Fire (Sun) every day we would not be experiencing the unbelievable events we are dealing with now. We need to give gratitude to the elements for our lives. Without giving honor, honor will not be returned.

And let us not forget about our full moon ceremony to create a human web of light within and throughout the Earth on September 29 as we welcome in the beauty of the Harvest Moon. Please take the time to really prepare in the ways I shared above to move from an egoic state into the highest spiritual state you rise to. Remove the robe of your body and bring through the brilliance that the human eye cannot perceive. Link that light to our global community and as one heart lets emanate throughout the planet.

If you are new to our full moon ceremony here is the link for instructions:

Please join me in wishing all a beautiful Fall/Spring equinox. Appreciate nature and change your life in the most positive way.

Master Mingtong Gu, one of the foremost teachers of Qigong in the West, will share how you can build a strong and healthy foundation, take better energetic care of your body, and establish a baseline for a long and healthy life.

Master Mingtong Gu is who created the Chi Center where I will be teaching next year. I have met him many times and his light is extraordinary. He is an amazing being!

On Tuesday, August 22, Master Gu revealed both the philosophical and practical components of working with Qi — gave simple practices and positions that allow you to connect with the energy that supports and nourishes your body. These principles of energetic healing can help address underlying issues that can result in disease, imbalance, and disharmony.

His workshop is starting in September. If you missed his intro call you can still register for his course.

Robert Moss brings us another brilliant workshop:

Did you know that in your dreams, your soul has the capacity to visit other worlds? You can even journey to dimensions where the dead are alive — and receive visitations from those who have departed this world.

Through the power of lucid dreaming, you can visit these other places to uncover new wisdom, experience deep healing, explore unlimited possibilities, and meet yourself in other lifetimes — including the afterlife, says dreamwork pioneer Robert Moss.

On Tuesday, August 29, join Robert for a brand-new hour-long event and learn how to embrace death as your ally, using a shamanic dreamwork practice to visit the afterlife — so you can bring clarity, healing, and joy to the life you’re living now.

Transmutation News – August 2023

I feel like in the last few months I have written about choices people are making right now. We went through very unsettling times where people started taking a deeper look at their lives and the choices they were making. And now if you watch, listen to, or read the news we are even in more unsettling times. And once again in a short amount of time people are making more choices. Some issues that have to do with climate change are creating forced changes.

But the choices I am interested in are how people are choosing to change their lifestyle and deciding to follow their dreams, as life is too short to be living the life you don’t want to be living.

In the Medicine for the Earth work we have the formula Love+Union+Intention+Harmony+Concentration+Focus+Imagination equals miraculous events and great transformations.

In doing my own spiritual work I felt like I had hit a wall. I also felt I was not working deeply enough with the material on a moment-to-moment basis in a way that I was living the work.

At this point Isis did step in and really gave me some wonderful journeys and ceremonies to take me where I do want to go as I continue moving forward. And that was how I created my new course Advanced Medicine for the Earth which is going spectacularly well.

It’s hard to keep up the concentration and focus to allow our intentions to have enough power to build a new state in the unseen realms that will manifest in the physical. We really have to not only be one with Source, but we have to understand that Source lives inside of us. And we have to love ourselves enough so that we are excited to do the work that can change our lives in a positive way.

This leads us to imagination where in Medicine for the Earth I wrote about how imagination creates our reality. I spoke of Caroline Casey’s writing on this in Medicine for the Earth as well as Neville Goddard’s amazingly powerful work.

My best friend, at the time, Brooke Isberg London was helping me research creation stories for Medicine for the Earth. One day she was over at my house, and she encouraged me to check out Neville’s books. Due to how much research I was doing on miracles for Medicine for the Earth I was so happy to have resources that I had not heard of before.

And as I have shared multiple times Neville’s work is all about the power of imagination.

I have already shared with you over many years now some of Neville’s quotes. Recently I shared a Neville quote on Facebook:

“Thoughts do not recede into the past. Rather they advance into the future to confront us, so we see that which we had planted, either wisely or unwisely.”

I know this statement is completely true. But what the quote inspired in me was to reflect on the big intentions filled with words and thoughts that I had said out loud to the power of the universe.

This led me to a story I enjoy sharing. I think the reason it has so much meaning for me is I can see how what I did at the age of 7 shaped my destiny.

I was living in a very unhappy neighborhood in Brooklyn where people had immigrated to the U.S. to avoid some kind of persecution in their homelands. There were a lot of suicides and just a lot of sadness.

I was sitting on my couch and had a visionary experience where I said out loud to the universe, “Everyone has this wrong. Earth is such a beautiful planet with so many colors. We came here to be happy. I am going to dedicate my life to making people happy.”

I wrote my first high school paper on creation and manifestation, and it has been a topic of interest throughout my entire life even to this day.

In the 1980s when I saw I was going to be homeless I got up at 3 AM and again stated an incredibly strong decree with so much power I saw a portal open and take my decree. And then I watched the portal in my vision slam shut. The decree I stated was that I was going to take all the energy I put into worrying about how I was going to pay rent and be the most creative person I could be.

I knew the universe listened to my decree and supported my choice in being highly creative with all my healing sessions, workshops conferences, books, audio programs I recorded. It is a lot. And I also have been writing the Transmutation News for over 20 years. I know I left things out. But you all know how much I have created and built in the unseen realms and let those projects fall to the earth and manifest in the physical.

This is what happened to me by setting my intentions that shaped my destiny. So now what about you? What happened with your intentions?

This month explore the intentions you set at an early age and see how they manifested.

The whole world is you pushed out. Projections – if you love yourself, you are projecting the best on the world and every being that lives on this great Earth. All of life is a projection.

We are gifted with a blue moon this month. The full moon is both on August 1 and August 31. Before you begin your transfiguration practice look at yourself in the mirror and say to yourself, I am in a sacred space and ready to allow my inner light to fully shine. Do you feel stupid doing this? Then you are not ready to begin your practice. Do some more drumming, rattling, singing, and dancing to make sure you can look at yourself in the mirror being amazed at the spiritual strength and light coming through you. And now you are ready for the work.

We join together in unity and love with all in our circle as we gather to emanate our spiritual light first to our inner landscape and then fully into the collective and our outer landscapes.

Please note that when I teach on my own versus through an organization, I don’t advertise a lot. If you want to hear about my trainings, and have the opportunity to sign up, make sure you are on my email list and you check the emails or The Transmutation News Announcements. We had disappointed people not being able to sign up for my Advanced Medicine for the Earth Training due to not reading the email I sent out.

Due to the fact that I want small in person trainings and online courses obviously I am not going to do much advertising, so I don’t get overwhelmed with applications for my advanced Shamanic Healing course and my next Teacher Training.

I am looking at teaching an Advanced Shamanic Healing training in 2024. I am currently working out dates with the Chi Center.  I hope to have some exciting news soon. There is a lot to look forward to.
