Transmutation News – April 2020

I am delighted to share the news that. I was named by Watkins Mind Body Spirit Magazine as one of the 100 Most Spiritually Influential Living People for 2020. I made it to number 24 on the list. I feel that my work being honored also honors shamanism and all the good work we are all doing.

https://www.watkinsmagazine.com/watkins-spiritual-100-list-for-2020

 

The Medicine for the Earth and Healing with Spiritual Light work is so important to work with daily. When I first started studying shamanism, I learned that viruses are created from negative thought forms. Think of all the negativity being flooded into our collective due to anger over world politics, the fires in the Amazon, and the fires in Australia.

The Amazon is seen as the lungs of the Earth. And now we have a virus impacting lungs.

Everything is truly connected. I think the changes we are seeing will continue until people not just wake up but shift priorities to life being more important than money.

We have great ability to maintain our health, support our communities with transfiguration work, and do our practices together to transform negative states of consciousness.

I am teaching a special course for The Shift Network where I am taking the most powerful practices of The Medicine for the Earth and Healing with Spiritual Light work and created a seven-week course.

The course will have three levels. We will work on maintaining our personal health physically, mentally, and spiritually. We will perform transfiguration and other healing ceremonies to keep our global circle strong, and we will perform ceremonies for all of life. And of course, we will look at how to share this work in our local communities if this of interest to you.

Not all the material will be new to you. But this course is a way to keep up our practices together keeping them alive and vibrant feeding their power to keep us safe, opening to bigger teachings, expanding our perspective, and joining together for ceremonial work. I will be guiding all the exercises and there are no prerequisites for this course.

The free introductory call will be on April 1 and the course will begin April 14 on Tuesday nights for 7 weeks. The sessions will be recorded for those who cannot attend live.

I wrote The April Transmutation News early as I had an upcoming workshop and travels I needed to prepare for. Although this column does not talk about the corona virus, I feel the message shared is so important to maintaining our health.

I was journeying and all of a sudden, my helping spirits started talking to me about the election in the US. I did not ask about the election. It was a spontaneous message. My spirits did not get into detail, but they left me with some huge insights. The path is a little twisty so you will need to follow where their conversation with me took me to.

Around the election the information was quick and simple. I was told that people will vote for the candidate that makes them feel safe and cared for.

This led me to the environment. For when picking leaders just to feel safe the environment is often left out of the mix.

This is where this statement led me. I keep writing that we are nature and not connected to nature. What I was shown that our abuse towards nature is like abusing our organs in our body to the point that the body starts to attack itself with autoimmune issues.

And we are seeing many mysterious autoimmune issues on the planet today. And if we don’t start caring for our body which is nature, the attacks on us by ourselves will keep increasing.

Then this led me to my personal work. I was told that my constant self judgement on what I did wrong instead of acknowledging what I did right is feeding into health problems. For when we don’t feel worthy, are critical of ourselves, and can’t absorb love we end up attacking ourselves. This creates auto immune issues and extreme inflammation which is so prevalent today.

The core of the message for me was if we want to heal ourselves and the planet, we must absorb divine unconditional love, work through how we judge ourselves, and emanate constant love to nature and follow up by changing our actions and behavior towards all the sentient beings we share the Earth with. And we know how these practices feed our soul.

The full moon is April 7.  Drop your ordinary concerns and expand your perspective to embrace a larger picture. Perform your preparation work and experience your true brilliance radiating within and throughout this Earth. Let your light and love emanate to every living being on the planet.

Transmutation News – March 2020

transmutation news march 2020 1200x630

On March 19 we cycle into the equinox. Time continues to move so fast and the climate changes we are seeing are gaining momentous speed. As we all know some of these changes are simply where the evolution of the planet is taking us. But some changes are human caused.

Many are waking up and working together spiritually and many are taking physical action to walk with a lighter step on the Earth by changing how they live their life, their diet, what products they are willing to buy, and so on.

As I have been writing, my deep concern is about practitioners of different spiritual practices trying to join together to manipulate weather patterns. Nature won’t be manipulated, but she certainly is trying to give us a strong message. And manipulating weather has dire consequences as the balance is changed so tragic events happen in other places that would have been safe if the natural balance was allowed to stay in place.

For me there is one essential teaching. I believe we must build a strong relationship with the land we live on, the ancestral spirits protecting the land, earth, air, water, and fire. If we establish a strong relationship with them as kin, then we can communicate with each other and negotiate with them as they love us for honoring them.

Right now, there is no honor as we dump pollutants into the elements that give us life and try to move them in ways we think we need and would benefit the land.

Learn from the land and elements.

As we welcome in spring in the Northern Hemisphere and fall in the Southern Hemisphere here is an exercise to perform.

Take time and start to build a strong relationship with the land, the helping/compassionate ancestral spirits of the land, the elements and any other nature beings you wish to communicate with.

Decide which being you wish to speak with and ask “May I step into your field of energy?” And then begin by emulating love and light.

Introduce yourself and start up a conversation like you would with a new friend. Learn about the land and spirits life and history. What has it been like for them to live on Earth? Once you have a good relationship and conversation going ask for a message on how you can work spiritually and what actions you need to take to live in harmony on the land.

As we all continue to do this, we will see changes happening where we live in a positive way.

This is how the Native people around the world work. The land they live on, the elements, and all the sentient nature beings where they live are seen as kin in a shared living place. They are working hard now to appease the spirits. Right now, they are doing their work while non-native people do not understand the principle of reciprocity taking away from the power of the work. If we join in on such a powerful practice, we will learn a lot and help to alleviate a lot of suffering.

The full moon is March 9. Let’s ask the power of the moon if she will help us exponentially to radiate our light within and throughout the Earth. Perform your transfiguration practice with your light radiating so bright there are no places on this great Earth that your light does not touch.

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

I join our radiant circle in wishing all of you a beautiful equinox filled with deep wisdom as you connect with the land and the elements that give us life.

Transmutation News – February 2020

transmutation news february 2020 1200x630

We are all feeling so much emotion for the landscapes and all of life being destroyed through climatic events.

We know there is destruction and death happening in numerous places around the world. But more recently the fires in Australia are tearing our hearts open.

I read about all kinds of statistics of loss of life and don’t know what numbers are accurate. I have seen reports of 500,000 nature beings that died in the fires. And 8,000 koala bears have died as of writing this month’s column.

It is tragic beyond what our minds and hearts can imagine.

I too am praying beside all of you for the fire to be contained.

I recently spoke about this during my Introduction call “The Three Hidden Worlds” hosted by Stephen Dinan and The Shift Network.

Shamanism is a nature based practice and in shamanic cultures all life including Earth, Air, Water, and Fire are our family. But when we don’t honor, respect, or act with kindness towards other life beings there are consequences.

Earth, Air, Water, Fire gives us life. We continue to throw all our toxic waste into the elements that give us life. They are living beings and are our family.

In our culture we still are still ignoring the sacred practice of reciprocity. All of you reading this column know intuitively and in your heart that if we honored the elements that give us life they would not be acting so violently.

But yet we bypass building a strong loving relationship with them and simply try to get enough people together to try and manipulate the elements to move fires, move flood waters, move storms, create rain, and so on. This might have a temporary miraculous effect, but in some ways is more part of the problem as people feel they don’t have to change how they live their lives if they feel they can manipulate Nature instead of respect it.

I wonder how things would change if we established a relationship with the elements of mutual respect… You have to know in your heart that this would make a huge difference. You must KNOW this.

But here we are. Our hearts are broken with so much loss.

Start honoring the elements. Let’s gather our spiritual energies to open lines of communication with the elements instead of just gathering forces to manipulate them. Nature will not be manipulated.

february 2020 1200x630

Let’s perform honorable closure ceremonies for all the beings that have lost their lives. I wrote about Honorable Closure ceremonies in The Book of Ceremony: Invoking the Sacred into Everyday Life.

Connect spiritually with beings who lost their life. Thank them for gracing the Earth and all of life with their presence, their beauty, and their strength.

They contributed so much to the web of life and their loss is devastating to all of us.

Wish them a journey home to Source filled with grace, love, and light.

Let’s honor all the beings who died. This creates healing for all of life. Emanate love and light to all who lost their lives.

This level of consciousness actually allows all of us to live more consciously on the Earth.

Connect spiritually with the land you live on, the compassionate ancestors on the land, and to all the nature beings including the elements. Emanate love and light daily and feel that love returned to you.

Life on Earth will change as we do this. This I KNOW! The full moon is February 9. Let’s gather our spiritual energies together
to show all of life how much we honor and love all that inhabits this Earth with us. On this full moon let our divine light hold all of life in love and radiate this light 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 for a description of our full moon ceremonies.

Let’s keep our transfiguration work strong and perceive all of life in its divine light and strength. Don’t burden other living beings with your pity.

Transmutation News – January 2020

transmutation news january 2020 1200x630

I join our radiant circle in wishing our global community a Happy New Year filled with all the best that life has to offer.

How amazing that we are here to welcome in 2020. I know we have readers of a variety of ages. But for many of us 2020 has almost taken on mythical associations. We often have projected 2020 to be the theme of futuristic movies and here we are.

My association with futuristic movies and novels mostly includes a time when we have tapped more into the unseen realms and by increasing concentration and focus create true magic in the form of healing ourselves, others, and the planet. My projection on the year 2020 includes deeper initiations to carve us into the true spiritual beings we were born to be. And then hope returns. For in this state of rebirth we own our potential and that leads us to hope.

In November I was having one of my visionary experiences. I was watching an invisible screen showing me words and thoughts floating by. Some of the strings of words were quite positive and hopeful. Some were quite challenging anchoring me to an unhealthy past and creating a state of stagnation.

The message I received was to grab onto the positive thoughts versus the negative ones.

This metaphor of “grab onto” had deep meaning for me. For I could actually image the action and effect of grabbing onto words and thoughts in my body. I could feel the effect of what states of consciousness I grab onto in my body.

january 2020 1200x630

Let us reflect on this as we begin a New Year together as a global community.

Play some spiritual and mind-expanding music. It does not matter what day you choose for this meditation. Let’s imagine ourselves sitting in a giant circle among magnificent trees in an ancient forest. We are in wonder of the ancientness of the land and the strength and support of the trees witnessing us.

The time is dusk which is such a powerful time as the veils between the worlds are so thin. We marvel at the mystery of the forces of nature and how steady they remain during all change. We are as resilient as nature is. We just forget this sometimes.

As we sit together, we notice the compassionate and divine beings from the transcendent realms start to create projections of our daily thoughts and words we use throughout our self talk and interactions with others.

We watch in amazement as we can see how the light and sound of these words and thoughts impact the collective and all of life. Our psyche takes a pause as we can see what magic our words create – dark magic that draws us into states of anger, despair, and hate versus words of power, medicine for ourselves and the Earth that emanate fully the vibration of love and light. We realize we always have a choice of what state of consciousness that we want to grab onto. And with concentration and focus we can make the right choice to feed ourselves and all of life with love and light. But it takes so much discipline to make a choice that shifts us out of our reactive states.

Each member of our circle projects positive words, thoughts, and daydreams into the collective field of energy while we use the methods we have learned to transmute the darkness that comes with our negative way of thinking.

Imagine the alchemy created as we bring out the light of the collective.

What thoughts do you want to grab onto for 2020? Make your choice. For the future is in our hands by the choice you make.

This world is created by mind. To create a reality ruled by spirit we must step through the veil of illusion and step into a beautiful reality created by our daydreams which lead us to the dimension of reality we dream of inhabiting.

Let’s step into a dimension filled with kindness, honor, respect, peace, love, and light.

Let’s commit to shifting our priorities to keep our focus on the reality we can create with our words, thoughts, and daydreams.

Let’s continue to perform our sacred ceremonies as for Shamans performing ceremonies is our greatest vehicle of change.

The full moon is January 10. We started our ceremonial work to create a human web of light on the solstice of 2000. We have been performing this ceremony for 20 years taking us into a new decade.

The spiritual work we have been doing keeps enlivening the web of life. How could it not when thousands of open hearted people join together each month to feed ourselves, Earth, Air, Water, and  Fire, all the nature beings, all of life with love.

The key to creating true change is to learn how to obtain deeper states of concentration and focus.

january 2020 ceremony 1200x630

Let’s perform our monthly full moon ceremony Creating a Human Web of Light as if we never performed the ceremony before. This a time to freshen our work together.

Before a sacred ceremony how does your heart call you to prepare when you know all of life will be impacted by your work. The strength of your spiritual vitality and presence weakens with no preparation work. What do you need to do to step away from your day and burdening thoughts and states of consciousness?

For me singing brings me into an ecstatic state of consciousness. What spiritual practices support you attaining an ecstatic state? For shamans journeying and performing ceremonies require entering into an ecstatic state. Try drumming, rattling, chanting, meditating, walking in nature for extended periods of time. Noice the difference of entering into a ceremony spiritually prepared versus going in with all your usual daily thoughts putting a strong anchor down blocking the power of your work.

Once you feel “ceremony ready” cast aside your burdens, travel deep within to your Inner World; your inner landscape and experience your radiant light. It is shining with more power, strength and luminosity than in the past. The light is so bright you can actually see all the rainbow colors within. The light is transformative and is transforming all the cells in both your own organism as well as the organism we refer to as the web of life. We radiate our light with such effortless grace and beauty bringing restorative light to all that is alive.

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

Please join me in holding our circle in love as we welcome in The New Year. May your ceremonies be filled with joy as we honor the Earth, the elements, and all of life during this powerful time of change of dismemberment and rememberment.

Welcome to 2020!


Transmutation News – December 2019

transmutation news december 2019 1200x630

On December 21 we flow into a new season as well as moving quickly to the end of the year. We greet winter in the Northern Hemisphere and summer in the Southern Hemisphere. What a ride this year has been.

In truth we have no control to stop a change in seasons. We also have no control on where life will eventually take us.

But do you notice how much we fight against where the flow of life and the river of life is taking us to.

What if we are being asked to let go of trying to control changing flows and cycles, and we embrace the flow knowing it will lead us to a beautiful place. This takes unconditional trust in life and in the process of evolution. We can continue to fight, try to control, and resist the flow of life. But we cannot control where the river of life is taking us to.

Our primal life force is moving us in a way it has been programmed to. But what if we can add consciousness to our life force.

We will still flow with the river of life. But using the ancient teachings of bringing consciousness to energy is a way to also transform any energy we meet during our ride. The flow keeps leading us to greater states of awareness, spiritual abilities, and how we can work in partnership with where life is taking us instead of kicking and screaming all the way.

Adding consciousness to primal life force energy will be my exploration in the coming year as I had such a powerful visionary experience of what is possible.

During this time of the solstice reflect on the great turning and the flow of life. Really ask your soul by spending time in nature, using journeying, or meditation to reflect on where you are fighting, resisting, and trying to control where the flow of life is taking you to. For like the changing seasons we have no control over where the flow of life is leading us.

On the solstice perform a ceremony to release old energetic patterns allowing you to enter into this next season of life. Perform a releasing ceremony of your controlling behavior. Call in your helping and compassionate spirits to help you in this. There is a wealth of divine and transcendent forces that are welcoming you into their protection as you drop the false beliefs that your ego or personality can control the flow of life.

Reflect on the old stories that have been anchoring you to the past. Also reflect on the projections others have put onto you covering up your passion for life, your beauty, and internal divine light.

What stories do you wish to carry into the New Year? Perform ceremonies to release the stories and projections that no longer serve you. Spend time in nature filling yourself with colors, images, fragrances, sounds, feelings, and tastes that are absorbed into your landscape. When you do this true beauty is what you will see whenever you open your eyes. This is the field of energy you want to embrace for the New Year!

If you need ideas for ways to design a ceremony please read my book The Book of Ceremony: Invoking the Sacred into Everyday Life.

 

Once you relax into the flow you will notice more beauty and peace flowing into your life.

The flow will continue to move you in ways that are beyond your imagination and understanding.

Embrace the flow of life and all of its twists and turns. Let’s return to a state of awe and wonder as we watch the beauty and perfection of the path unfold before our eyes.

The full moon is on December 12. Let’s start with our preparation work and then journey deep within to our spiritual light that is eternal and immortal. This light has the ability to transform all that is put in our path. As we radiate our light as a global community, we step into the role of truly being in service to all of life and the Earth.

Let’s join our light and spiritual strength together to weave a radiant and luminescent light 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 of this site.

As this year is spiraling into a new year, I want to take this opportunity to thank our translators who continue to engage in so much work to bring The Transmutation News to our global community.

Let us join our hearts together and radiate and emanate love, light, and deep appreciation to all who help to bring the Transmutation News into our mailboxes each month.

Transmutation News – November 2019

transmutation news november 2019 1200x630

Over the years I have mostly used two metaphors to describe much of what I teach and write about.

In recent years I have been writing about building an inner landscape/inner garden filled with beauty, love, light, and harmony so that your inner world informs you on a new perception of life.

In years past, when I wrote A Fall to Grace in 1997, I kept referring back to the river of life. For in reality, we are all flowing down the river of life through the smooth and turbulent waves. We often disturb our flow by trying to move against the river of life resisting the flow of nature. We hold onto our outcomes and judgements that keep rocking our boat preventing us from surrendering to the flow of life. And we often try to follow the flow of others journeys instead of letting go to our own flow.

In October I had very deep visionary experiences as I am still feeling a need to go deep within and reflect on all that is happening in my life and in the world.

It is so evident to me that I stepped out of my own flow as I entered into the chaotic flow of others and the collective. I experienced how water carves out rocks into amazing beings of beauty. But there cannot be any resistance to the sculpting process as it is all part of life and evolution.

I witnessed how I lost my connection with the heartbeat of the Earth as I allowed myself to keep up the frantic pace that has removed me from the true vibration of the Earth and nature. For nature’s frequency and vibration is actually quite slow. This moving too fast in life is impacting the power of our work as our speed has removed us from the flow of the river of life.

I love ice cream, so the helping spirits gave me a fun metaphor to describe the initiation experiences we are all going through. They said we have been put into ice cream makers to churn us into new flavors. This initiatory and evolutionary experience brings us fuller into the beautiful river of life with all its twists and turns.

I was told to return my energy into a harmonious flow I should carve out some time every day to relax into the true rhythm of the Earth. The guidance was to drum everyday versus listening to drumming. What was shared is that all the drumming tracks we listen to actually creates a disembodied experience. It is important to really connect with the vibration of the drum which then connects me to the true heartbeat of the Earth.

I was shown that all the initiations we are going through are to help us move with how the Earth is evolving. I had the beautiful experience of speaking to the Earth as she shared with me her next step of evolution.

The Earth told me that she is moving into a more luminescent body with less density so that eventually she will be very balanced as a light filled form. Everything in nature including humans will be more luminous and a lot less dense. What this will do is transform us into beings who are equal light and form allowing us to flow more gracefully and shifting our consciousness to a new way of being.

These are just some of the insights I have been getting. This is a very rich time for me on a spiritual level.

november 2019 1200x630

Reflect on what I shared about flow and rhythm. Does this speak to you? If it does, drop into your inner knowing and make changes to your life that allow you to move freely with the river of life. Look at how you resist the natural flow. Find your own rhythm and truth and stop trying to compare your experience. For you are in your own unique flow.

Allow the river of life to take you to a place that your mind cannot embrace yet, but your spirit knows. Let your heart and life be your river guide.

In November many people celebrate the holiday of Thanksgiving. Let’s make every day a day of thanks for our lives and for of all of life.

The full moon is on November 12. Reflect on what I shared about a new Earth forming – one less dense in form. Keep up your transfiguration practice to allow yourself to drop into your luminous being. Slow down when you perform your spiritual work, so you are aligned and attuned to nature and the heartbeat of the Earth. Radiate your light and let it flow freely embracing all of life and the Earth.

Life is a ceremony. Ceremony is a sacred act. Let’s bring back the sacred into how we live our lives.

Transmutation News – October 2019

transmutation news october 2019 1200x630

In many past issues of The Transmutation News, I would ask our global community to join together to perform transfiguration ceremonies to feed the waters of the world with love and light. These ceremonies were different than the work we do on each full moon to create a human web of light.

I would ask people to perform a transfiguration ceremony with a glass of water present on each person’s altar or in a sacred space and then bring the light filled water to a local water source- the ocean, a river, spring, lake, river, pond, and so on. In this way our collective energies would join together to send a message of love, honor, and respect to all the waters of the world which would eventually flow back to its source.

Earth is a water planet and we are mostly water. When we honor the water within and without us water always reflects back to us our beauty, passion, love, and light. Working with water is a wonderful way to send messages to all the elements as they are all touched by the water we blessed.

With all the environmental challenges impacting the planet right now I feel it is time to reinstate this powerful ceremony.

Either visit a local water source and fill a glass of water, water from your home, or buy some spring water. Place the water on your altar or a place you feel is sacred in your home or out in nature.

Perform your preparation work to move your ego and personality aside so you become a true pure and clear vessel for divine energies to radiate through you.

Travel deep within to the source of your divine light and let it flow throughout your body, then into your hands. Let that light continue to expand and grow within you until your entire sacred space is filled with a brilliant flowing light. Feel, see, sense how the light flows into the vessel of water in your space.

Drink a little of this holy and blessed water and feel the healing power filling your body. Then bring the water to a local source. Really open your heart, open all your invisible senses, fire up your imagination and as you experience the water flowing into the local source imagine it communing with all the waters of the world we are collectively feeding with divine light and unconditional love.

october 2019 1200x630

It is a different form of creating a human web of light, but acts in the same way.

This is a powerful way for us to join our hearts together to bring forth unconditional love into the field of energy of the collective and to begin showing our devotion to the elements that give us life. This love and devotion will be returned to us as is the law of nature.

The full moon is October 13. Let’s continue our practice of Creating a Human Web of Light. You can do this on the same day you do your water ceremony and let the full moon add exponential energy to your practice. If you choose a different day then please make sure you do your work to leave your burdening thoughts and ego behind so you can be a strong vessel of light. Transfigure, absorb your divine light into your cells, and let it expand and radiate beauty exquisite light within and throughout the Earth.

This is no time to perform any spiritual practice on a superficial level. Put your heart and soul into this and let’s transform the shadow energies that are filling our collective field. As each of us does this from a true authentic and spiritual place we can transform the current energies. But we have to put our heart into it and work from our highest frequency with full concentration and focus.

Transmutation News – September 2019

transmutation news september 2019 1200x630

In July, my husband and I had the amazing opportunity to take an expedition to the Arctic. This has been a life dream for me. Also, I had a powerful journey where the Sun asked me to make the pilgrimage.

So, we set off on an ice cutting expedition boat. It was an amazing experience to travel into such a magical realm. We went to the Svalbard.

During our journey, the ice expanded so we were able to get to the 80th parallel. We got to 730 miles toward the North Pole. But we could not go further.

I cannot possibly put into words what we experienced here. We definitely now have “polar fever” and are seriously thinking about moving to a town in the Artic for a while.

I went to be in the ice and in the silence. To be able to ride through the ice shelf was spectacular! But we did get to see some amazing nature beings- dolphins, seals, walruses, an amazing number of birds, beautiful flowers, reindeer, Artic fox, and yes, we saw a polar bear. I mostly got to see the polar bear climbing onto a piece of ice so mostly I saw its butt. But then I could see it walking. This all happened too fast to take a photo. But such a gift!

I keep sharing in the Transmutation News that all life sings. Well on one zodiac excursion we did go into a fjord where there was singing ice. We got to be with it for one hour before we had to return.

I did post a clip of a video I took of singing ice on my Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/SandraIngerman

We took some spectacular hikes and amazing zodiac rides to witness a wealth of animals, birds, and landscapes.

To be in the silence in this magical dimension of reality is life changing.

This is something we all miss in the frantic lives we lead. And how fast life has become is causing illness of the soul.

We must return to living a more nature-based life. This would help people emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

With all the changes happening in our environment we must learn how to adapt. For our current environment is filled with so many toxins, and we must get really proactive on how to transmute them.

I recently learned through a medical test that I am filled with very toxic mold and so is our house. We are working with a mold remediation team who is getting the mold out of our home. And I am taking supplements for my own healing.

But I realized that I can get lost in paranoia about how some mold might be escaping some of the cleansing we are doing.

I realized that instead of shifting into a state of fear it is time for me to go even deeper with my own practice of transfiguration. We know it works from so much we have seen throughout the years. Light does transform toxic substances.

I focus during the day on sensing and feeling my inner sun radiating light through all my cells. I emanate light and love throughout my house and the land we live on.

I see our home in its divine perfection. And I am also doing my spiritual work to step out of the field of energy of mold. Stepping out of fields of energy is a topic I want to pursue with you in the future.

To adapt to our environment, we have our work to do. We must step out of the frantic field of energy that so many of us are caught up in and find ways to step into the field of energy of silence. We need this to regenerate!

And we must do our spiritual practices such as transfiguration to transmute what we do take in from our environment instead of living in fear.

Adaptation will be key in our lifetime. Spend some time in nature and reflect on what I am sharing.

What are you doing to make sure you adapt? And how are you inspiring your loved ones and community to do the same? This is important work that we cannot deny anymore.

There are beings in nature who tap into the blueprint they were born with to adapt and there are those whose time it is to leave the planet. But all of life right now is being asked to adapt one way or another.

The full moon is September 14.  This is a perfect time to connect with the power of the sun, moon, and stars and to tap into your divine light that reflects back powerful life-giving energies. Find a way to adapt your own transfiguration work so you can tap into your purest radiant light.

Let’s radiate this light throughout our global community empowering each other. And let’s radiate it within and throughout the Earth touching every life form with perfection and love.

And amazingly summer and winter are shifting to fall and spring in the Northern and Southern Hemisphere. It’s time to connect with the land where you live and feel the changes within and without as we welcome in a whole new season of life.

The equinox is on September 23. During the time of fall we always think about what we need to let of go of and surrender to the earth so that she might compost the energy into new life. And for the spring we think about the endless possibilities that can be birthed as we plant new seeds into the earth.

For this equinox let’s ceremoniously plant seeds of hope in the earth where you live. You can certainly do this as a journey or a meditation. But better than that would be to go outside, bring your sacred tools with you, welcome the helping spirits, the compassionate ancestors of the land, the hidden folk, earth, air, water, and fire as the sun, the power of the moon and the stars to be your witness. Use some seeds that you have gathered or bought and plant them while you breathe hope, love, and light into each seed you plant. Fill each seed with the intention of hope bursting forth around the world in their right time. With the changes in seasons, we will have plants of hope blooming everywhere.

Every living being on this Earth is sacred. You are sacred. Life is sacred. Let’s remember what a gift it is to be here and continue to deepen our spiritual practices.

I join our circle in wishing everyone a beautiful and powerful equinox!

Transmutation News – August 2019

transmutation news august 2019 1200x630

I was offline in July. I went on a pilgrimage to be in nature and be immersed in beauty. Whenever we immerse ourselves in beauty we step into a new dimension of life. Due to my time away, I ended up writing both the July and August Transmutation News at the same time so I would not need to skip a month.

For the August Transmutation News, I decided to share just a portion of the chapter I wrote in The Book of Ceremony: Shamanic Wisdom for Invoking the Sacred in Everyday Life on the topic of honorable closure in which I share ceremonies to honor endings in our lives and also to honor our loved ones who died.

In times of such environmental challenges as we are dealing with right now, we can also perform ceremonies to honor the beings in nature who have died. These can be our precious pets, or nature beings in our locale, or in other places on the planet.

We grieve for all species we are impacting as humans forget to honor all that is alive and how they contribute to the web of life. By honoring their life and death is a way to create honorable closure. This helps with our own grief. But most importantly honors all of life.

Adaptations for Honoring Death

You can use adaptations and improvise on the ceremonies I shared to honor the death of a pet, an animal from the wild, species who have died in mass, trees, a plant, and so on. Every living being on the planet should be honored while it is alive and once it transitions.

Burying a Pet

If you perform a burial ceremony for a beloved pet, you can place food and maybe a bit of water or milk in the grave. Share words of love for this precious animal who was a family member. Then raise your arms while wishing your pet a loving journey home that is filled with light, love, grace, and ease.

Plant Ceremony

I wish I had a green thumb, but I love plants and grow many.

I actually created a plant graveyard in an isolated part of my land. I bring the deceased plant to the graveyard. I thank it for sharing its beauty in my home and on the Earth and wish it a good journey home. I apologize for anything that I did that did not support its life by overwatering or not being able to provide optimal growing conditions. I leave offerings of blue corn meal.

I visit my plant graveyard frequently to pay my respects. Yes, I am a bit of an eccentric.

Honoring Trees

When a tree dies on my property, I visit with it. I thank it for the beauty and grace that it shared with all of life on this great Earth while wishing it a good journey home. I leave an offering of blue corn meal in honor of its life.

I have received quite a bit of correspondence from people who were once loggers. They feel so much guilt about killing beautiful and oftentimes ancient trees. I share the ceremony I do with my trees. You can perform the same ceremony for a mountainside where logging has occurred. You might not be able to talk to each tree individually, but you can stand in the affected area.

After preparing, say what is your heart to the deceased trees, even if they have been removed. Drum rattle, sing, and/or dance while praying in your own way that the trees have a good journey home. Thank them for their beautiful and powerful presence on the Earth. Leave heartfelt offerings. This same ceremony can be performed for trees lost in a blight or during a forest fire.

Honoring Environmental Losses

There are sad events that we are witnessing where many die due to pollution in the land, air, and water where they live or during an environmental disaster. Climate change and war have created tragic situations for humans and all living beings. Floods, fires, earthquakes, tornados, and other disasters can force living beings to flee their homes and lose their lives. Even more heartbreaking is the mass extinction of so many precious species who could no longer survive in their natural environment.

There is such a power in performing ceremonies for living beings who have suffered devastation, whether these are human communities, animal and plant populations, or species lost to extinction.

You can perform a ceremony inside or outside to honor those who died. Thank them for the energetic signature they shared with the web of life and the beauty and preciousness they brought to the Earth. Say what is in your heart. Drum, rattle, sing, or perform your ceremony in silence as you honor the beings that have transitioned.

Since these are issues that affect us as a global community, you may find many people who want to join you. Performing local ceremonies or global virtual ceremonies helps us honor the lives lost and create a graceful journey home back to Source.

Virtual Ceremonies for Honorable Closure

A powerful way to work is by using the virtual altar that I suggest in my book. You can create an altar room in a journey. Travel to the altar room alone or with a group. You can bring your group together remotely by phone or online. The leader should do most of the speaking in the ceremony, since cross-talk is even more disruptive over electronic connections.

Lead the group to the altar room using a guided meditation or journey. Be cleansed by loving guardian spirits while leaving your ordinary thoughts and burdens behind. Gather at the altar cloth and greet each other. You might use a shamanic instrument and sing and dance to begin and end your ceremony.

Take turns to share words and feelings. Once the sharing is complete, reach your arms up to the sky and wish the beings who have transitioned a good journey home. Thank the helping spirits.

Travel home. Take time to share your experience of doing this powerful and heartwarming work. Some members of the group might have received spiritual messages of love to share from the beings you honored.

Spontaneous Ceremonies

You might witness an accident or a traumatic event or come across the body of a deceased animal.

Many shamanic practitioners carry offerings in their car or on their person for such an event. At the scene of an accident, say a prayer for those impacted and leave an offering on the land. With a creature found dead on the road or while walking in nature, you might, say prayers of honor and respect for its life and gracing this earth with its presence, leave an offering, and even bury it in a ceremonial way if the situation allows.

While grieving any death, we often feel heartbroken. Though this is painful, it gives our hearts the opportunity to open, expand, and embrace more compassion.

Honoring Grief

In shamanic cultures, ceremonies were performed to honor the transition of a community member. But ceremonies could also serve to honor the grief of loved ones. Grief has its own process. We go through different phases of grief. Ceremonies might not heal grief immediately, but they can begin a process that is an important passage in life.

All of life grieves. Even animals, trees, plants, birds, and so on grieve the death of a partner. Each individual’s grief has its own timeframe. Whether it takes days, months, or years to heal from grief, honoring the process through ceremony can help us through each step on the journey.

I feel strongly that it is important to honor the death of the nature beings we so love. It holds them in love and creates a field of energy of honor and respect. This makes a huge difference for all beings who are part of our web of life and contribute so much to all of us.

The full moon is August 15. Let us continue to build a strong relationship with the moon. Request to step into the moon’s field of energy. Keep building your relationship with the moon so you feel as if the moon is part of your family. Learn about its exponential power to support us in our work. Take time to prepare before performing your sacred ceremonial work to transfigure. Allow your inner divine light to flow while emanating unconditional love for all of life. Let’s continue weaving a brilliant web of light within and throughout the Earth touching all of life.

Transmutation News – July 2019

transmutation news july 2019 1200x630

Over the years of writing my books and the Transmutation News I have shared how people can have different emotional needs during the changing seasons. For me, the time of summer calls me deep within just as many people feel a need to move into a state of “hibernation” in the winter.

Right now I feel my spiritual path is leading me to contribute to the web of life through finding more time to be in silence and transmit and emanate love and light into the collective. Combined with being in summer I am becoming quite the recluse.

After all we are similar to crystals which are brilliant transmitters and receivers of energy.

So much of the communication with nature beings is on a psychic level. Nature beings pick up on energy, they pick up on warnings and important information for their survival, and they communicate through emitting vibrations that make up beautiful songs. For everything in nature sings as does the universe itself.

We don’t understand how many of our thoughts and words end up transmitting chaotic and destructive vibrations and songs into the web of life.

We try to use our own language to connect with and communicate with nature.

But nature is reading the energy we transmit and not our words.

How much are we missing in the dance of life by not opening to the language of vibration that we can transmit and receive? We are missing messages from the environment as well as from the exquisite beings we share the planet with. And we miss the joy of true heart to heart conversation.

We would learn more tools for survival and have deeper interactions with other species if we start to open our invisible eyes and ears and tap into our body knowing. And nature would get to learn about us as we start to communicate with the elements and other species on a heart-to-heart level and also as we are willing to transmit energies of love, honor, and respect by opening our psychic senses. When we do this we naturally open up to a new dimension of life.

Spend more time in nature this month as you sit in silence. Lift the veils between the dense field of realty we tend to inhabit and open to being a crystal transmitter of love and light. Engage your psychic senses and notice the energetic communication you receive and the songs you hear in return.

The full moon is July 16. Begin by asking the moon if you can step into her field of energy. Keep building your relationship with the moon so you feel as if the moon is part of your family. Learn about its exponential power to support you in your work. Take time to prepare before performing your sacred ceremonial work to transfigure. Allow your inner divine light to flow while emanating unconditional love for all of life. Let’s continue weaving a brilliant web of light within and throughout the Earth touching all of life.
