Transmutation News – June 2024

I have not had a chance to share about my One Year Practitioner Training at the Chi Center right outside of Santa Fe. 50 souls traveled from all over the country, some from Europe, Australia and even some from Japan. So we had the most interesting mix of people who bonded immediately. And then came the drums and the dancing and the incredible dance between humans, the spirits, the land, and each other. I can only say I was in true ecstasy and happy that I am back in person and connecting both with helping spirits and humans again in profound and meaningful ways. I can’t imagine teaching any other way anymore!

It’s been really interesting for me to get feedback on Walking Through Darkness. So many of you have read it now and are giving me feedback on the book. For some it has become like a lifeline. Finally, there are authors talking about walking through the darkness instead of immediately trying to turn everything into positivity and light.

The Medicine for the Earth work does focus on building an inner landscape that is so rich and beautiful that is what you see when you open your eyes and step into the world. Our perception creates our reality and when we get too dark that is what we see inside and outside of us.

But again, in life there are just certain truths where we can’t do a spiritual bypass. And when you have been deeply hurt in your life it is important to walk through that territory too. And that is how we get through to the other side where we can embrace beauty.

While walking through the darkness our ego is stripped. Until our ego is stripped we really can’t see the world of spirit that is so alive and vibrant every second no matter what is going on in and around us.

Our collective is in a deep initiation now. And it is the people whose egos are being stripped that are stepping into new states of evolution. It is beautiful to see. But some of us had to start with feeling the loss and feelings of betrayal that accompany a deep initiation before we could see that a true gift was being given to us. The gift is embracing life from another level of consciousness where we do feel fully empowered to live life in a good way despite the challenges.

That is the key. And when we do leave the dark night of the soul and the light welcomes us home, we have the tools to caretake the Earth and ourselves which of course is all one.

As we approach the summer/winter solstice on June 20 it is a time of celebrating the longest day of the year but mostly honoring the power of the sun which gives us life. As all times of changing phases these are wonderful and potent times to set your intention for the coming season and connecting with nature.

Some people like to perform ceremonies in nature at a park, beach, or even in your own backyard. This is where I perform my ceremonies on my land which I am literally woven into.

You can read the article I wrote on how to prepare for a ceremony. Preparation is key for all sacred spiritual work. Ceremony creates sacred reciprocity so there is a lot of flow of energy being transmitted between you and the creative forces of the universe.

https://www.sandraingerman.com/preparing-for-ceremonial-work/

This link brings you to a powerful transfiguration ceremony.

We are dealing with climate change. It is time to honor the sun for all the life it gives us. We can’t survive without the sun. In shamanic cultures Shamans performed ceremonies to make sure there was balance between humans and the climate and the land where they lived.

It is time to start honoring our sacred elements and sacred ceremonies and practices and then through reciprocity we might see some dramatic changes occur. You can dance your love for the sun, sing a song, light a candle in honor of its life-giving light. If safe you could do a fire ceremony and speak with the sun. You all know how to perform ceremonies where you ask the fire to take from you a pain or something burdening your path forward. Or asking the fire to carry your intentions of what you are passionate about creating to the creative forces of the universe.

Use your drums and rattles to connect spiritually with the forces of nature and make sure to honor the sun. Perform some of the inner work I have been suggesting, to work with the energy of the sun that lives inside of you to learn and obtain knowledge of how the changing phases of the sun inside and without are impacting you.

Always remember to thank the helping spirits and the elements for their participation in your ceremony and let them know you are done, and you are releasing them.

If you are new to performing ceremonies check out my book The Book of Ceremony published by Sounds True. I wrote this for our current days and issues we could use help creating ceremonies for.

The full moon is June 21. It is the Strawberry Moon. This is our time to drop all we are doing for the greater good of all of life and prepare to do our most sacred work of harmonizing our emanating brilliant spiritual light within and throughout the Earth. May our work add to all the beautiful work people are doing in all traditions around the world to pray for peace.

When we come home to our light we will always come home to a state of peace.

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

Here is an inspiration from my journal I wrote a few years ago:

If we have a field of energy what kind of field are you building for yourself? For the energy field of energy around you in itself will impact your life and how others respond to you. Are you filling your field with being courageous to state to yourself your positive attributes, and how you share and uplift other beings? Or are you filling yourself with self-sabotaging beliefs? Or are filling yourself and your field up with all that is wrong in your life and the world? I keep sharing that we carry the ‘medicine’ of our helping spirits. Well, we carry our own ‘medicine’ too. And you and all life are healed by the ‘medicine’ you carry.

We join together to wish everyone a blessed solstice!

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

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

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

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

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

John Lockley does such brilliant work teaching South African shamanism. He is so filled with love and so much knowledge on healing to share with you. He will be doing a intro call and lecture on his work for the Shift Network. Here is the link for more information.

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

When I wrote Medicine for the Earth: How to Transform Personal and Environmental Toxins I fell in love with the work of Neil Douglas-Klotz. I loved how he shared how the Aramaic word for good and evil is “ripe” and “unripe”. That really shifted my perception about almost everything.

I just learned Neil Douglas-Klotz is teaching for the Shift Network and I felt a true desire to let you know about his work. His work changed so much for me on how I saw life. I quoted him quite a bit in Medicine for the Earth. I think I was probably the first person to sign up for his course after the intro call. I clicked on the  link and I bought it immediately.

According to Neil Douglas-Klotz,PhD, internationally renowned for his 40 years of pioneering work on the Aramaic words of Jesus (or Yeshua)…

… understanding what Jesus truly exemplified and said, in Aramaic, can set you free and help you build trust in your larger self and your own heart, expand your perspectives, and bring more joy into life.

His introductory call is over but you can still sign up for his course. Click on this link for more information.

Transmutation News – May 2024

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So I agreed to promote this new Shift Network training:

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

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

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

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

Transmutation News – April 2024

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

From HeatherAsh:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

These are a few of the heartbreaking things. 

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

Transmutation News – March 2024

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

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

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

All of this loops back to sacred reciprocity and community.

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

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

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

Earth my Body

Water my Blood

Air my Breath

And

Fire my Spirit

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Join me in wishing our global circle a beautiful equinox!

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

Transmutation News – February 2024

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Although I am delighted about returning to in-person teaching in 2024, I also have a workshop I would like to teach online. When I teach my own workshops online through Sylvia Edwards hosting me, I only advertise through dedicated emails. If you would like to sign up for future courses, you have a better chance of getting in if you find out first through a dedicated email. If you are not signed up on my email list you might consider doing so.

Also Sabine our French translator is taking a sabbatical. So we are looking for another volunteer who is willing to translate the Transmutation News into French. If you are willing to help out to bring the column our French readers, please email Sylvia Edwards at info@sandraingerman.com

And please join me in thanking Sabine for her time and commitment and in wishing her all the best!

Transmutation News – January 2024

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Announcements:

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

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

If you like my work and find it meaningful, I ask you to reach into your heart and if you feel called to join me in helping people walk through the dark night of the soul, please consider buying my book and maybe one or more for a friend. It is filled with so many tools for the times we are in.

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

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

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

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

Anna Dorian from The Dreaming Otter is a wonderful healer, gifted spiritual teacher, and old friend of mine.  On January 27-28, she’s offering an orientation for a small-cohort, year-long online training for healers in full-time practice.  The training weaves in helping spirits, advanced energy healing practices, and several guest teachers.  Anna creates magical experiences for her students that are truly special – you can learn more at: https://thedreamingotter.com/training-for-healers/

the training is intentionally very small (6-8 students), meets twice a month for a year, and will spend 5 full months learning extraction and soul retrieval. 

I so love Lisa Bonnice. I have been a presenter on the Shift Network Ancestral Summit hosted by Lisa Bonnice. She is also my host on my Shift Network trainings. We have the most interesting conversations and her book holds some incredible wisdom for us to read and reflect on. Lisa is host of The Shift Network’s annual Ancestral Healing and Beyond the Veil Summits, is proud to announce the publication of her newest book, Castle GateCastle Gate is the true saga of a family whose dreams of finding their fortunes in the bountiful coal mines of Castle Gate, Utah, during the Prohibition era explode in one of the most devastating mine disasters in American history. Is their presence there just bad luck, or is it due to a generational curse dating back to their ancestors’ involvement in a witchcraft trial in the 1600s? Based on genealogical research, Castle Gate tells the ancestral healing story of a family destroyed by a documented curse which has been wreaking havoc all over the world, for centuries. Sandra Ingerman was instrumental in the discovery and healing of this curse. You can support Lisa’s work by visiting her website at www.castlegatebook.com to order either the ebook or paperback version.
