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.

Please check out my announcement on digital courses that are now available to purchase at any time.  The course on the Dark Night of the Soul is so relevant to all of us right now as we walk through the dark and challenging times together.

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.

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.

And don’t forget to visit our Shamans are Gardeners of Energy Facebook page to post inspirational stories and images and also to be uplifted by what our community is sharing. To join the Facebook group Shamans Are Gardeners of Energy, go to: https://www.facebook.com/groups/991720834662313. The password is “Transfiguration”. 

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.

So many people struggle to be fully seen or feel somehow incapable or ill-equipped to have the life they desire. There is a path to turn things around! My friend and colleague, shamanic healer and author, Evelyn Rysdyk has integrated 30 years of her practice to supporting women to heal from the incomplete, imbalanced and wounded model of the feminine that they ingested from their forebears She is launching her new free webinar soon called 3 Essential Keys for Activating Your Sacred Feminine for Vitality, Connection and Fearlessness!

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.

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.

Transmutation News – December 2021

We are speeding along and ending another year of extreme growth.

Many years ago, a very dear friend gifted me with a ficus bonsai as a gift. I was so excited to receive it and terrified at the same time as I am not good with plants. What would I do to a little tree that was over 20 years old?

Well Ficus (ficus our tree’s personal name) and I have had quite the long journey of learning how to live together and support each other’s growth. There have been times when I did not think Ficus would make it. There were times when Ficus did not think I would make it. But oh my to see the new growth in Ficus from just a few weeks ago is like I infused it with some super growing formula. And we have been together since before I got ill so it must be at least 7 years of life together.

I am sharing about my journey with Ficus as I see a similar process happening with so many right now. There is a learning curve of how to tend to oneself and others during this time of dismemberment and simultaneous rememberment. Mostly our minds are focused on what is broken and what is not working. And we do need to take actions now and in the future. But we must have the energy to deal with what is coming. And we need a period of growth to gather the energy for our continued journey that has no end until our soul decides it is time to go home.

When we move into a state of growth and take our place in this life, we must remember that we came here to be caretakers of the Earth.

We must step out of the dimension of division and constantly return to the divine spark that lives in all of us that is connected to the creative forces of the universe which are always shining the song of dismemberment and dissolution as well as the song of rememberment and new creations.

When we step into the dimension of recognizing that there is only oneness, love, light, and lessons for our spiritual growth we can be held by a state of inner peace within.

But we must let go of fear, self-hate, division, and hyper vigilance. We need to ground to the land and feel the land supporting us for that is the real support we need. We need the support of all the elements who have been here for billions of years and have been through and contributed to the storms of change that we have been going through since life began on this Earth.

Nothing changes until it changes within you. So this month attempt doing regular body scans and notice where your “feet” are standing on all levels. Are you feeling yourself standing on solid ground and supported by spiritual forces? Do you need to just rest and let go of doing anything? There has to be a period of rest before a e period of growth, or you won’t have the energy for the next stage of growth which can cause a level of physical suffering.

Just like Ficus had to learn how to live with my husband and myself, we have to learn new ways of living on this planet and with our fellow humans and nature beings. For our old way of life is simply gone. It does not exist anymore. And do you need time to grieve this before moving on?

Take some time this month and tune into yourself and tune out the media as well as social media. Use this month to learn about yourself and what your current needs are and make plans to have those needs met.

I still believe one of the reasons the Covid came here was to wake people up. People just started to enter their own bubbles. People are making choices some of these not loving, compassionate, or kind. But for now, we have to focus on the work we are doing and seeing what part of our Inner World, our soul, body, heart, and mind might need some tending to right now. Stay with the focus and growth will happen, and you won’t regret following where the river of life is taking you too.

If you know anything about the process of mitosis you can actually witness it happening in the organism we call humans. Humans are now splitting off into different cells. I wonder what worlds and new dimensions will be created by this cell division.

We celebrate the winter/summer solstice on December 21. This is a time of deep reflection and rest for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. And it is time for big growth in the Southern Hemisphere.

Whatever season you are entering into think about this as being a time for regeneration and healing.

In 2000 I started our full moon ceremony titled Creating A Human Web of Light. And years later I added a monthly healing for our global community. But I did fall short on this and only organized this for our circle a few times.

I felt that this winter/summer solstice is time to bring back using a specific transfiguration ceremony to support those in our global circle.

Sylvia Edwards helped me record a ceremony for us to perform together on the winter solstice.

To listen to the audio version of this recording click on: https://youtu.be/YGQegbAk88s

Since the instructions are actually written up on my homepage I decided to include them here for those who will need the instructions translated. This is a powerful ceremony. We have used the GDV camera many times to record the results and we always get amazing images of what happens to people’s energy fields when they engage in the ceremony we will perform together on the solstice.

I am posting here a shortened version of what appears on the homepage under Instructions for our Monthly Ceremony: 

As we continue to do our transfiguration practice, we begin to heal those states of separation. We move into a higher state of consciousness, and we need to learn to surrender to the perfection of the universe.  And sometimes it is hard to do that and we need help in remembering our own divine light.

To help our worldwide community reading the Transmutation News I have decided to add a monthly healing circle to go along with creating a human web of light.

Here is what I suggest. If you would like to volunteer as a practitioner imagine yourself standing or sitting in a circle with other practitioners.  Remember the Transmutation News is translated into many different languages. We have a large global community working together.

Our intention is to experience our divine light and radiate it out to the inner circle.

We do not see suffering in our circle. We acknowledge the divine perfection in each person. So we do not lock people into a diagnosis of suffering rather we lift them up into their divinity.

Author and lecturer, Eric Pearl teaches, “In quantum physics if you change the behavior of one particle, another particle in a different location will instantaneously react whether inches or universes away.” Lower frequencies entrain or attune to higher frequencies not the other way around.

So back to the core principle of the Medicine for the Earth work, we change the world and heal others by who we become – by our presence and by the love and light we radiate.

We are not sending energy or trying to heal anyone. We are only allowing our divine light and love to spark the divine light of those asking for help.

Imagine yourself standing or sitting in a circle of practitioners. Do your transfiguration work and with your hands facing the inner circle radiate your divine light and love.

If you feel you need some help imagine yourself lying in a circle with people from around the world.

Your role is to absorb the light being shared by our practitioners. Think of a metaphor that might help you with absorbing divine light and love into every cell of your being.  I will give you a few examples with the hope that you will find a metaphor that works for you. You can think of a dry sponge that has been placed in water and soaks up moisture. You can think of flower that has been in rain for days or weeks and the sun shines and the flower soaks up the rays of the sun. Or maybe you can think of a flower that has been getting too much sun and it begins to rain and the flower soaks up the water nourishing it and giving it life.

Or think about a room where the curtains are closed, and the curtains are opened flooding the room with the light of the sun.

Allow the light of the outer circle to jumpstart your own radiance to flow through every cell of your body. This reconnects us to our divine perfection and our connection to the web of light. This heals those states of separation that create emotional and physical illness. And it reminds us that we all have the power and strength to rise to the challenges and opportunities that life brings to us.

And you can be in both roles at different points of the day or evening. You can be practitioner at one time and then lie in the middle of our circle at another.

And as we are working outside of time it does not matter when you do this work. It is not necessary to coordinate the times in which we all work.

The full moon is December 18. This month’s full moon is called the Cold Moon. So let’s warm each other hearts and souls by joining our spiritual presence and energies together to radiate our light with absolute focus and attention so that the entire Earth and web and life is uplifted.

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

It is remarkable and magnificent to me and everyone who knows about the Transmutation News that we have an amazing collection of people who take the time and energy to translate the monthly column so people all over the world can read it. And this has made a difference for this column. For you can really see the radiant energies coming from such a strong global community.

So please join me in thanking all our translators from your heart for the work they do every month is so intense. We have had translators come and go, but everyone put in a labor of love and you feel it.

Let’s send blessings to all our translators for sharing spiritual practices in their community making our community larger and stronger. With being strong links, we can do so much for ourselves, each other, and all in the web of life.

And 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 into the column. Her heart is really in it to bring the column alive. Sylvia is a person on the planet who I can say truly does the work I teach and more every day of her life. And it shows by the extraordinary work she does in the world.

I wish you all a deep and meaningful solstice and a time of inner peace and love during this holiday season.

Announcements:

I am very excited to announce that the Chinese edition of Soul Retrieval has been renewed!!

Since this month’s column is long, I will forgo my own personal monthly announcements where I encourage to buy some for my inspirational books and CDs, listen to my amazing podcast with Renee Baribeau called the Shamans Cave, learn about my online courses you can sign up for now, and to learn about all the physical and online workshops the brilliant teachers I trained are teaching. You can learn about the workshops of a circle of brilliant global shamanic teachers on www.shamanicteachers.com.

As far as scheduling a physical workshop, trust me I am so eager to do this. But I have to be responsible and see where the Covid is going before I schedule a long-term training that might have to be interrupted.

I will be doing an opening session on the Gathering of Shamans which takes place December 3-5. This should be a fabulous event that I am looking forward to being part of. I love the lineup of teachers who all have a fresh perspective to share.

This live, interactive video gathering takes place via ZOOM and includes Dr. Alberto Villoldo, don Miguel Ruiz Jr, Linda Starwolf, and many other leading teachers and shamanic practitioners. This online weekend event is designed to invite you into a deep experience of your own true nature using time-honored shamanic practices.

Event Highlights:

  • ​INTERACTIVE workshops with leading shamanic teachers and healers
  • ​Video Replays for all sessions so you won’t miss a thing and can watch again as often as you like for up to six months
  • ​A special event app that allows you to connect with other attendees in real time

The Gathering of the Shamans started as an annual event in Sedona, Arizona, that always sells out months in advance. You can now experience the power of these interactive sessions without ever leaving your home, or budgeting for airfare and lodging!

I hope you can join us for what is sure to be a magical weekend of shamanic exploration!

Add some ceremony and ritual to your life this December.  Join me, Sandra Ingerman for the Opening Ceremony of the 10th Annual IAM Solstice Symposium on December 20th at 11am (PST).  Presentations by shamanic wisdom keepers include: Deborah Koff-Chapin; Linda Fitch; Christina Pratt; Izthak Beery, and Louise Edington. 

This one-of-a-kind community event is a world-wide gathering. What make it extra special are the hundreds of earth tenders who build altars and hold space at their home. The Wind Clan Facebook group page is the central hub for presentations, sharing stories, and for supporting each other as the power of the fire grows over the course of 14 days. These sacred fires purify and strengthen the bond of community members.

Register Here: https://thepracticalshaman.com/fire-tenders-gathering/

Join us in this ceremony as we keep the sacred fire burning. For 14 consecutive days we will hold our lights (candles, battery-operated devices, wood-burning stoves, twinkle lights) and keep a special altar. There will also be two daily live events on the Wind Can Facebook page. (recording available).

A few years I was a presenter on a Sounds True summit on trauma. The summit host Jeffrey Rutstein impressed me with his skills and his knowledge of working with trauma. Sounds True is now offering a trauma certificate program with Jeffrey Rutstein.

Transmutation News – November 2021

If we lived a life where our inner spirit and body guided us in making decisions and judgements about life, we would all have quite the different life experience. But most of us are ruled by our minds and mental thoughts that loop throughout the day. And a lot of our mental thoughts create a tremendous amount of suffering for us.

You have probably developed your own tools to discreate some of the thoughts that end up creating more challenges for you. For our thoughts plus intention have a lot of power to manifest chaos for ourselves and the collective. One of the Medicine for the Earth teachings is “intention is seen by the brain as an action has taken place.”

It is important to rise above the negativity that we generate personally and what we absorb from the collective.

A tool I work all the time uses the powerful shamanic healing journey called dismemberment. But instead of setting an intention to ask for a full body dismemberment I ask to dismember my thought forms.

In shamanism dismemberment is a powerful initiation where the body and mind are left behind so that the initiate can feel his or her spiritual identity and merge with the Creator to remember that there is only oneness and unity. The body is torn apart by some force of nature whether it be a helping spirit or an element. And the bones and organs are cleaned. Any illness is left out and the initiate is vital and rejuvenated once again.

Dismemberment visions were considered a sign of a shaman and anyone who had a dismemberment dream or vision came back with very special psychic and healing gifts making them a perfect candidate to become a shaman.

Today many use dismemberment for healing. I wrote about dismemberment in most of my books. But if you are interested in learning more, I would suggest looking at the chapter on Dismemberment in Walking in Light.

I do perform dismemberment journeys for personal healing. But I also have developed a process with the assistance of a helping spirit who helps me take a negative thought form and dismember it until no part of it exists.

And then of course the key is focusing on a positive thought to fill up the space vacated by the dismembered thought form. It is all about intention. Set your initiation to dismember a thought form and observe what happens.

If you perform shamanic journeys a helping spirit can help.

Another very simple way I work is to use my imagination and see myself writing the thought form on a chalk board. Then I either use an eraser or white paint to discreate it. I find when I use this way of working that I have to keep putting on layers of paint again and again until my thought form is erased.

And then again it is important to fill up with love and light when you are done.

This month use your journey work, meditation time, or time in nature to develop your own tools for transmuting/transforming your negative thought forms.

This is a challenging time, and we want to express our feelings, and what we are thinking. That is our birthright. But you might notice always focusing on the negative changes your energy field that you inhabit, and it might not feel so good or a pleasant space to be in.

With spending a lot of time alone these days I try to create a pleasant environment in my Inner World. This ends up creating the energy field and dimension of reality I live in throughout the day.

In the U.S. November is when we celebrate Thanksgiving. The commitment to giving thanks is always appreciated. I feel that we have so much power to merge our unconditional love and light with people all over the world giving thanks on this day.

And we hold in our hearts those who are lonely, starving, and homeless. This is a tough time of year for so many who have no resources or community. Seeing them in their light and their strength is something we can all give even if we have no other way to offer help.

Due to the pandemic and losses this can be a real time of heartbreak. Let’s remember those who died and the loved ones left behind and hold them in our hearts as we perform our transfiguration practice.

The full moon is November 19. Let’s generate enough radiant light to hold all of us in this circle in unconditional love. As we do our preparation work for Creating a Human Web of Light, think about all the precious beings you want loved and protected right now.

Travel within to your divine light that knows no suffering, only love, and let that light fill all your cells and radiate it out throughout the collective holding all in the highest level of love.

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

This month Terry Morgan will be gifting us with an incredible offering. Terry is one of our brilliant teachers on www.shamanicteachers.com and she is one of my assistants in my Shift Network classes. She is one of the most open hearted people I have met.  So enjoy this incredible offering Terry is giving us this month.

This is from Terry:

“Combining my shamanic practice and my love of the stars and astrology , I have been  gifted a deeper lens into our own astrological chart into a great depth using  journey practice. I call it our stars blueprint!

I found that if I journey into my own stars and planets ,I have received more wisdom than I ever thought possible!

I would like to offer to take you on a guided shamanic journey into your own SUN sign (the sign the sun was in at your birth) .

The sun holds our “life force” energy! And once we get to the Sun, my partner Robert Rand will support us with his live channeled music rather than my drum or rattles! We have found that his music played live, has a profound affect on the journey and supports the sun’s transmissions!”

Here is the link for this journey:

Also, if you are a new reader of the Transmutation News we started a Facebook page to inspire each other. It is only for positive and inspiring posts and is called Shamans are the Gardeners of Energy. The answer to the secret word to join is “Transfiguration”. 

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.

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.

But I am getting closer to booking a retreat center. So please watch for the dates!!!

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

A reminder that 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.

Transmutation News – October 2021

As a species on the planet so many have moved into a state of fear and anger when the truth of the matter is our spirit is burning so bright.

I have shared that I feel so much of the division is coming from the fact that we are restless. We are restless physically, emotionally, and mentally.  Our attention is focused on the outside world when this only brings us more suffering. For there is nothing we can do to shift the current state of the world.

What we are being asked of, is to go deep within where our spirit resides and brings to us a feeling of centeredness and solidity. When I tap into my ego, I fold into feeling like a small child who has no support around me and feels so insignificant in the magnitude of all that is happening right now.

I felt I was moving into the space of feeling so small and insignificant too much. It was good to identify that this is how my ego feels. But it is not a healthy or productive environmental  state to live in.

I started two practices that are practices of transmutation from the Medicine for the Earth work. Every feeling that brings fear or anger to me I imagine myself doing a shamanic extraction on myself, and I feel myself pulling out and pushing out the energetic state. For after all we are is energy. And that energy can be moved around. It can’t be destroyed. But I can do my transfiguration work and experience more light filling up the empty spaces where the spiritual blockages were in my body.

And every thought that passes through my mind I transmute to an energy of love. I imagine that energy filling me up and being shared with the collective. No matter how deep my anger is I can easily transmute it into love for I actually don’t feel I have the energy to carry anger around anymore.

These practices are so simple and I have integrated them into every second of my life. For there is a lot of time to reflect in the midst of all that is happening.

I really feel we are being backed into a corner while we are trying to dig our heels in deeper. We have to change. The world is changing, Nature is changing, our way of life is changing and we have to find ways to find the inner strength to walk a new path in life.

And we must take the time to stop and grieve all we lost on all levels including how we live our lives. People are running away. They are just trying to make believe everything is fine and nothing needs to change.

This is the issue. The pandemic and the climate changes and disasters are here for a reason. It is part of our journey to stop and reflect on what is being asked of us. We can’t run from the times we are living in.

And the only thing that will bring you the comfort and peace you so desire is to focus on your every minute-to-minute spiritual practices. They will keep you sane.

If you do your work, you will be astounded at where the current changes and the flow of life is now bringing you too. But you must accept that things won’t be “normal” again. You must grieve what you lost or the energy of grief could get stuck in your body causing another spiritual intrusion.

There are such amazing lessons for us and states of consciousness many of us are attaining by using this time as an opportunity to do a deep dive within. I have been writing about how we have been riding the surface waves of spiritual practices for 20 years!! And now we have no choice. If we want to walk our current journey with grace we must go within and follow our inner guidance, own everything we are projecting into the outer world, grieve, and enter into the flow of the river of life.

In times of deep challenges. we must:

Stay focused
Stay positive
Stay centered.

The full moon is October 20. Le’t drop into the brilliant light that fills our energetic field and be strong links to radiate this light into the collective field of energy. Let’s fill the Earth and all of life with our love and divine light.

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

Rysdyk is an internationally recognized shamanic teacher and bestselling author whose titles include The Norse Shaman, Spirit Walking: A Course in Shamanic Power, A Spirit Walker’s Guide to Shamanic Tools, The Nepalese Shamanic Path with indigenous Nepali jhankri Bhola N.

Announcements:

There is still room to get into my Spiritual Immunity course taught by the Shift Network.

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

I know many of you are getting notices from Apple about the Transmutation App. I have found a team who is willing to help me update the Apple Transmutation App and create the Android version. It is such a gift to have this team be willing to work with me. Some of the original programming information is missing. But they feel they have enough to get around this issue. I am excited to have the Transmutation App available. I think the work is almost done.

In the 1990s Isis asked me to start training teachers. She said that it would become too hard to travel for people to be able to sign up for non local workshops. It took me some time to gather myself to start leading Teacher Trainings, but I did start in 2004.

Due to the Covid, and the massive airplane cancellations due to weather, lack of pilots, and staff, Isis’ statement is definitely relevant right now. I trained 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.

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.

So I am journeying and watching carefully the trends of how retreat centers are operating. Stay tuned for my workshop will be small, and I know there will be a lot of interest. Make sure you are signed up on my email list for when I schedule, I will announce the training through a dedicated email.

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

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.

Transmutation News – September 2021

 Equinox ceremony

I want to start this month’s newsletter by letting everyone know I will be teaching Spiritual Immunity again over Zoom through the Shift Network. The intro call will be broadcast September 4 and the course will begin on September 28. This is the course I taught for the Shift Network when we just entered the Covid and the lock downs began. I will be sending out two dedicated emails to share more about the intro call and the course.

This course includes practices from Medicine for the Earth and Healing with Spiritual Light. It is a fabulous way to stay centered during these times when so much fear and angst is touching us on so many levels. This course teaches you how to remain empowered and how to find harmony in the midst of a challenging life journey.

We keep talking about the rapid changes happening in our lives and in the world. And we can all see that this process is heating up. There is a dynamic involving change that I would like to share with you.

Some of us are making huge and rapid changes from how we were living our lives. Do some scans of yourself on all levels to see how you are managing such fast shifts. For when you are living your life at a fast speed,  trying to change too much at once leads to feelings of deep grief. For our psyche needs time to integrate change.

When a big event happens in nature you can hear silence for days allowing for the integration process to happen.

We act like we are on speeding trains that come to an abrupt halt, and then we go into a form of shock that can lead to grief. In many ways our process is not always natural.

I have found in my own life that I have to slow down with everything I do right now. For so much of my body and soul is overexcited by so much inner and outer change. So I have to slow the movie down instead of trying to keep up. When we just try to keep up, we don’t always calculate the changes we are making which can unknowingly throw us back into the dark night of the soul.

So  the solution to this is to slow down. I have talked about this before. As time speeds up I purposely and intentionally start to move slower to give my psyche a chance to find harmony and move in an organic fashion.

On September 22, in the Northern Hemisphere, we are getting ready to greet my favorite season of the year – fall, a time to celebrate the cycle of death. In the Southern Hemisphere you are celebrating a time of new birth and those powerful new sprouts of spring that remind us of hope.

I was meditating on the upcoming equinox and was staying spiritually open to receive a message on what our journey/ceremony should be to welcome in the equinox.

I was told to perform a ceremony to lay down our weapons. This really struck a chord in me. For as you know the Transmutation News includes work, messages, and exercises from Medicine for the Earth. In order to really practice the spiritual work I outline in the Transmutation News, you do need to lay down your weapons which send our unprocessed energies to ourselves, our loved ones, all of Nature, and out into the collective.

The spiritual community seems to generally be against owning guns. But we still allow ourselves to get so triggered by the statements and actions of others. We are going around psychically shooting people down we don’t agree with.

I imagine most of us perform our transmutation work to shift the energies we are feeling from hate and judgement to unconditional love and light. When we do this, we are tapping into the universal power of unconditional love that can heal ourselves and environment. Don’t confuse unconditional love with personal love.

So we do pick up psychic weapons when we get triggered, and as I wrote about in How to Heal Toxic Thoughts we must work with our triggers so that we don’t shoot “the gun”.

For those of you who don’t read English I will write out the instructions that will be translated. And then for those of our community that would like to join in on our ceremony for the equinox the link is below.

https://youtu.be/mAcz3koJYmM 

Please note: I got awkward at the end of our recording. It was like I did not know how to say goodbye and tell you how grateful I am for all of you. So words “got stuck” in my mouth.  I was simply trying to say goodbye, and say I love you.

You want to do your preparation work for performing ceremonies. There is a resource on how to prepare for ceremonial work on the homepage of the Transmutation News. https://www.sandraingerman.com/transmutation-news/english/shamanic-ceremony/preparing-for-ceremonial-work/

We want to move our ego out of the way so we can have a strong and divine connection with the spirits that can help us while we state our desire to the power of the universe.

If you are not watching the video of me leading the exercise listen to some spiritual music that allows you to enter the non-ordinary realms where healing and magic can happen.   I always recommend drumming and rattling for yourself while dancing and singing while you journey.

Experience yourself standing on a beautiful beach. The sand is pure white. The sky clear blue devoid of any clouds.

Feel the warmth of the sun under your feet and greet the sun, the ocean, the earth, the air, the moon, and the stars. Look around you at the purity of this place in nature. The ocean is beckoning to you and wants to greet you on this special day. Let her cool waters cleanse you and open your heart to the power of love.

Call on your helping spirits if you practice journeying. If you don’t journey you can call on a divine figure who helps you find peace. With the aid of the helping spirits ask for help in metaphorically laying down your weapons. What weapons do you hide in your psyche? What do they look like? How do you psychically cut down others, yourself, send out messages of hate and judgement?

Use your imagination in this work to see and feel the weapons you are holding. You might not physically own a gun. But our thoughts can act just like gun shots. So we have to stop judging those who hurt others with weapons, as we have our own weapons.

Stay in the journey until you experience the elements unburdening you from the weapons you are holding.

It is time to step into our true spiritual power. The Covid brought a message that we are just not taking seriously.

We called in change. And here we are. But let’s find our own sense of inner peace during these times. You have a choice. You always have a choice to choose love or violence.

The full moon is September 20 and is the harvest moon. Let’s harvest love and light and connect fully to the web of life. If we connect fully to the web of life, we will feel the support we are looking for. Everything becomes so clear and obvious when we are one with our internal light. We are at peace. And we want to greet the full moon from a place of inner peace.

Perform your preparation work, listen to some mind-expanding spiritual music, or go out into nature and perform your transfiguration work allowing any blocks to your light shining strong dropping away.

If you are a new reader of the Transmutation News please read the instructions for our full moon ceremony on the homepage- Creating A Human Web of Light. The same link that brought you to how to prepare for ceremonial work will take you to the instructions for our full moon ceremony.

Before we move onto announcements I wanted to let those of you know who follow me on social media that I have gone off Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I hope to occasionally post an inspirational message on my Friends page, my Authors page, and Shamans are Gardeners of Energy. But being on Facebook for work 7 days a week since 2015 no longer seems healthy or adds to the quality of my spiritual life and practice. It just became too stressful to answer so many posts from my workshops for so many years and unfortunately impacted my health. I want to devote my life to my practice and not just responding to FB questions. We have brilliant teachers on shamanicteachers.com to learn from.

I love that we have Shamans are Gardeners of Energy. I do look at the page from time to time and the posts are akin to singing love songs to the collective. The energy just radiates to all of life.

We are looking for a new French translator to help with the French translations. If you can help us out, please contact Sylvia Edwards at info@sandraingerman.com.

Join me in wishing our global circle a wondrous equinox!

Next month Evelyn Rysdyk will be sharing a ceremony with us. Evelyn’s work is so creative and brilliant. She is one of our most experienced teachers on www.shamanicteachers.com. She has an incredible sense of humor and is a fabulous storyteller.

Evelyn is an internationally recognized shamanic teacher and bestselling author whose titles include The Norse Shaman, Spirit Walking: A Course in Shamanic Power, A Spirit Walker’s Guide to Shamanic Tools, The Nepalese Shamanic Path with indigenous Nepali jhankri Bhola N. Banstola. Evelyn’s new book, Shamanic Creativity can be pre-ordered from bookstores, now.

Announcements:

I know many of you are getting notices from Apple about the Transmutation App. I have found a team who is willing to help me update the Apple Transmutation App and create the Android version. It is such a gift to have this team be willing to work with me. Some of the original programming information is missing. But they feel they have enough to get around this issue. I am excited if it works to have the Transmutation App available.

In the 1990s Isis asked me to start training teachers. She said that it would become too hard to travel for people to be able to sign up for non-local workshops. It took me some time to gather myself to start leading Teacher Trainings, but I did start in 2004.

Due to the Covid, and the massive airplane cancellations due to weather, lack of pilots, and staff, Isis’ statement is definitely relevant right now. I trained 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.

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.

Advanced Healing Trainings of 6 or less people are being taught online by the teachers who I have trained as each person can get dedicated individual attention.

So I am journeying and watching carefully the trends of how retreat centers are operating. Stay tuned for my workshop will be small, and I know there will be a lot of interest. Make sure you are signed up on my email list for when I schedule, I will announce the training through a dedicated email.

The training will basically include 3 five-day workshops teaching Medicine for the Earth and Healing with Spiritual Light, Extraction, Psychopomp work, and Soul Retrieval. Graduates who show proficiency in the work over time can be listed on shamanicteachers.com as a shamanic practitioner.  And from that group I will pick those who show a gift for teaching and will invite them into a Teacher Training.

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

The effectiveness of Tension Releasing Exercises, or TRE, relies on your primitive reflexes to reveal where trauma is residing in your body — and then “shakes” it out.

Transmutation News – August 2021

I have exciting news to start with! I am so delighted and beyond grateful that Sylvia Edwards, our webmaster, converted my old HTML website to a new www.sandraingerman.com.  The site is nothing less than stunning and exquisite. Please join me in welcoming the new www.sandraingerman.com. I am finally stepping into the 21st century thanks to Sylvia Edwards. And I had a wonderful support person Aimee transforming the 20 years of Transmutation News into blogs. Thank you Aimee!

Please join me in going to view www.sandraingerman.com.

We are seeing so many changes on the planet and in the collective consciousness. There are a lot of people still stuck in illusions of life that keep us separated from each other and the web of life. But in the spiritual world we are making progress. Some are disappointed in how much progress is being made. I find myself feeling the same disappointment except when I reflect on my own lengthy process of personal healing. In our culture we want immediate change. And we know in nature change can happen so quickly. And in some ways consciousness in the spiritual community is changing rapidly. Meanwhile some people are getting more lost in the illusion and the energies of division and fear. Change in nature happens in its own perfect timing – a teaching we must surrender to.

I already have shared that I was surprised to feel a shift in my energy and a shift in the spiritual community after we experienced some big astrological transits this winter. I was cynical about feeling much of a change in consciousness for it felt like we were so entrenched in too many illusions.

But I did start to notice a softening inside myself starting to happen. It felt like the hardness of my shell that had developed through all my traumas, as we’ve all gone through in life, just created different emotional and mental states that kept me from my highest spiritual identity.

I actually started to notice a change in my own spiritual consciousness many months before we went through all the transits.  I just started to talk to my students about feeling like it was time to stop talking about my teachings and to actually do more transmissions and emanating love and light. But I didn’t really know exactly how to put this into action. In all my years of teaching I have definitely allowed love and light to flow through me. But this is while I am busy lecturing and leading experiential journeys in my workshops. I wasn’t exactly sure how to put into motion just emanating energies in my workshops or in my client sessions. And I continue working in the way that I have and always make sure that kind and loving thoughts are in my heart whenever I work with my students or clients.  

I let go of trying to force a way of teaching where I would be emanating higher universal energies. This work then and now still seems to be a combination of teaching and allowing myself just to be love and beam light in the process.

The question about moving to transmitting energies came up for me years ago, and I am still finding my way by just allowing my own spiritual evolution to shift and change how I interact with the outside world. For me everything is a work in progress. If a different way of working is to come, I trust it will come in its own time. I have learned that as long as I stay in the flow of life my levels of trust take so many burdens of worry off my shoulders.

I remember so many years ago saying to my guardian spirit that I wanted to stay here long enough to see the end of the story. He responded to me “There is no end to the story.” So we just keep moving forward on our personal and collective journey.          

When we realize we are on our personal karmic journey we can let go of judgment of others as we have our own karma to live out.

This letting go of judgment and letting karma do its job is not punishment, rather cause and effect. We can drop the burden of how we perceive all that is wrong. It creates space to focus on what is right and allows our heart to soften and open more to emanate love and light and to understand our ultimate journey is one with the creator.

I found myself moving out of the energy of judgement in the last month. Something just naturally started to shift in me. And every time I start to judge myself or others, I make a choice to emanate love and light instead. This choice is becoming simply automatic for me and a way of life. I actually feel a soft light start to move through my body and judgement simply melting out me. I can’t quite explain the softness and yet power of the feeling. But it is like a moving very soft vibration.

If we take the time to find quiet so we are not so overstimulated we can meet some really beautiful parts of ourselves in our Inner World. But we need time and silence to really drop in to a state of peace that allows us to shift how we behave in the outer world.

I feel like right now we are all being called to do what we feel passionate about, do whatever practices and activities that feel like they feed our energy, transmit the higher energies our spirits choose to share with us, and if we follow the flow of the river of life then we can always trust where life is taking us and we don’t have to fight so hard.

We can’t push the river and in life we are all on our personal journey.

I want to thank Mara Bishop again for her wonderful offering she shared with us last month. In my haste to leave for a trip I did not share Mara’s website. So I want to give it to you now. Mara has a new book out that I have announced on the Transmutation News. Mara is listed on www.shamanicteachers.com in North Carolina. She is brilliant practitioner and teacher. Her new book is titled Shamanism for Every Day.

This month Chetna Lawless is sharing some of her work with us. Chetna is a good friend of mine. We have been through a lot of adventures together. And Chetna was one of my assistants in teaching my Teacher Training in Scotland. She is very experienced with her work and emanates true unconditional love. Chetna lives in the UK and her website is www.vision-voyages.com.

Here is the link for her video for this month’s Shamans Are Gardeners of Energy:

Chetna called it a ceremony for “The Golden Harvest in Your Inner Garden”.

The full moon is August 22. Let us bring together our highest selves and with passion and energy radiate the light we know that can transmute the toxins and negative states of consciousness in our collective. But we must have patience when we work on this larger scale and keep up our work.

Perform your preparation work and appreciate yourself and all the Earth, wind, sun, moon, stars, and waters provide for you. Yes, they move in extreme ways sometimes creating huge climatic obstacles in our life. But they are life itself.

Appreciate yourself, the elements, and our circle. Experience your deep inner shine and let it radiate within and throughout the Earth. Let you heart open to unconditional love and let that energy flow from you. And imagine all our light and love weaving together like the beauty of the Northern Lights.

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

I am ACTIVELY exploring teaching physical workshops again!! Hang on! I am missing them as much as you are!

In the meantime, there are a couple of online Evergreen courses that I had taught live and now you can do the courses self-paced. There are multiple courses but here are two you might be interested in.

Check out HEALING WITH SPIRITUAL LIGHT

The Transmutation News is based on my book Medicine for the Earth: How to Heal Personal and Environmental Toxins. I taught this work all over the globe with miraculous results and people receiving powerful tools to transform and create the energies and ride the waves with grace and ease like times we are in now.

As I was reaching my elder years, I contacted Sounds True and asked them if they would film a live course with me teaching it so people would always have access to this incredibly powerful and uplifting work.

And Sounds True said yes. We titled the course Healing with Spiritual Light. The feedback I have received from this course is spectacular.

If you’d like to experience the power of these teachings for yourself, Sounds True is offering as a FREE introduction the first session of Healing with Spiritual Light.
