You don’t have to be an observer of life to experience how wild things are getting in our collective. I have always written about how life is in constant change. But in my lifetime, there seemed to be an order to how nature changed and how life changed in accordance with the laws of nature.
I remember when I first moved to Santa Fe in the 1980s, I could predict the weather like magic. We knew the first snow would start on or around October 31. Then we knew the winds would come in the spring and make everyone crazy with the constant dust and allergies. The snow always stopped in late spring. And then, of course, we had mud season to contend with. Then our summer monsoons started every year like clockwork.
Look at where we are now. I am obviously using Santa Fe as an example. But there are no longer certain phases in nature or in life you can count on. It seems like everything happening is one of the first times we are seeing it, and it feels like the energy even in nature, is pure chaos with the craziest of storms and traumatic events, covering our entire planet.
I have written about the extreme and fast growth we are seeing in houseplants and trees and plants in nature. But to watch the huge snow, ice storms, typhoons, hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, and floods, this must be getting your attention.
Nature is reflecting the incredibly chaotic state that people have moved to. The amount of division humans have moved to is simply insane. Humans have lost their minds. The fights going on about the virus, war, the climate, our culture, and our beliefs is beyond unhealthy and is against the laws of nature.
So are we getting a reflection of how crazy we have become watching nature’s behavior? It is all connected. And we are not in a good or balanced place.
What do we do, and how do we get back to some sense of normalcy? I write the Transmutation News for spiritual practitioners. I do not address obvious political and social actions we can take. I know everyone is working in ways they feel passionate about and donating time and energy to important projects to protect our environment.
I think it is important to review the practices that are part of the Medicine for the Earth and Healing with Spiritual Light work. I don’t want to write them all out here as I have written so many summaries of the Medicine for the Earth work over a hundred times during our twenty years together whenever we faced a big challenge.
What I did share below is a series of questions for you to reflect on. For every question I ask you to reflect on is the Medicine for the Earth work.
My book Medicine for the Earth: How to Transmute Personal and Environmental Toxins is a great resource. This book birthed this powerful work. It is quite esoteric, and the magic written in between the lines is quite extraordinary. This book, and Soul Retrieval: Mending the Fragmented Self are seen as my most respected books.
Medicine for the Earth is such a strong book and the power of it almost took my life as I wrote it. But I loved the state it brought me to.
I did try and make the work more accessible in:
The Shamans Toolkit
How to Heal Toxic Thoughts
Walking in Light: The Everyday Empowerment of Shamanic Life. I wrote out the entire Medicine for the Earth Training in this book.
My app “How to Heal Your Thoughts” keeps you in the zone of the Medicine for the Earth work on a daily basis.
And then I have courses:
“Healing with Spiritual Light” is a film of a full Medicine for the Earth workshop I taught in Estes Park, Colorado
Spiritual Immunity is a course taught online through the Shift Network.

I fully believe in this work. But I never felt as a community we stepped into the full potential and depth of the work due to distractions in life. The discipline needed to see the miracles that are part of this work have to do with using focused concentration every day.
We need the discipline to bring intention, love, unity, concentration, focus, harmony, and imagination fully into our practice as this is the formula for creating miracles taught in the Medicine for the Earth work.
Do you feel completely at one with Source? Or do you need to perform the creation story journey again to see how much love went into your creation? Has Source guided you to how you can create miracles like Source does?
What is the vibration emanating from your mouth through your words, thoughts, and daydreams? Do you use words to bless yourself or curse yourself and others?
How deep is your transfiguration work? And if it is not deep, why not?
Have you connected to your ancestors and descendants?
Do you remember all the practices and ceremonies that allow you to create your greatest dreams?
How alive are your invisible senses? If not engaged and completely enlivened what world are you living in?
If you engaged in the journey for the equinox of traveling to the mistress or master of daydreams did you really focus on where your work is lacking, and what changes did you make in your life after you performed this journey?
How connected are you to the spirit of the land where you live, the elements, and nature beings?
Are you following the roadmap of the omens you are being presented with daily?
What energies are feeding with your daily practices? Use your imagination to draw out the map you are living, based on what energies you are feeding. The energies you are feeding are creating the life you are living.
What energies are you absorbing from life? That is a good one to look at. For you know the consequences of absorbing poisonous energies.
You should be making a choice to do this work now. I am going to teach my own online course going over these principles, having ways to test them out, and really practice them from our highest place of light with each other. I am imagining I will teach this course in June.
The full moon is on April 6. Start with preparing your space where you perform our full moon ceremonies. Make sure you are diligent about preparing yourself by doing any spiritual activity that moves your ego out of the way so you can have a strong and direct contact with the divine within and without. And once ready, perform your transfiguration work remembering you are being joined by a circle of thousands. Make a decision to stand up in full equality with everyone else and emanate light and love from your deepest place of spirit.
If you are a new reader of the Transmutation News please visit Creating A Human Web of Light to read the instructions of how we work together as a circle.
Remember studying life is not living life and therefore has no magic. Really dive into the questions I posed in this newsletter and live your life and bring more magic into it.
I have finally learned that there is a retreat center I can teach at. I am looking at teaching an advanced shamanic healing training in 2024! I do limit the numbers of my in-person workshops. I will keep you informed when I am ready. But I will do minimal announcements to make sure I sign up those who are truly committed and waiting.
In the meantime, I am still doing The Shamans Cave podcast with Renee Baribeau. We have so much fun doing this show, and we have had amazing feedback on how we are helping people ride out the waves of change we are in. We have listeners and viewers from all generations and people from all over the world. You can learn more and subscribe to our show by visiting www.ShamansTV.com.
There are teachers on www.shamanicteachers.com who are teaching in-person trainings, online advanced shamanic healing methods trainings with really small groups so everyone can be observed in their work, and there are hybrid courses of a mixture of online and person trainings. Due to the intimate size of the group participants are getting some of the best shamanic healing than have seen in past workshops.
And during these times it is a good idea to get some shamanic healing work performed to give you the power and resilience we all need right now. There are brilliant practitioners working with clients remotely and in person listed on www.shamanicteachers.com also.
I still have Evergreen Courses that are already recorded on Journeying and other topics. Check out my Training page for further information. And you have all received my dedicated email that all my Shift Network courses are now all digital and can be bought by you to learn from at any time. “The Dark Night of the Soul” is such a powerful course and has great tools to get you through challenging times. And “Healing with Spiritual Light” produced by Sounds True and “Spiritual Immunity” produced by the Shift Network are my Medicine for the Earth and Spiritual Light trainings in an online format.
There is a fabulous course on working with Nature which is one of my favorites “Shamanic Journeying with the Spirits of Nature”.
Please check out my books and audio programs and my “Healing Your Thoughts” app. I have received such great feedback, and they include information and exercises I teach in my workshops. All my books sell well. But if you haven’t check out Walking in Light and The Book of Ceremony, you might be missing some valuable shamanic tools and practices you can use in your life to receive guidance, healing, and to honor all the transitions and changes in life.
And due to my work of deepening my practices, I am reading my book Medicine for the Earth again. Besides Soul Retrieval and The Book of Ceremony this is one of my powerful books. It is very esoteric, so it never reached a mainstream audience.

Last month I announced Roel’s new workshop for the Shift Workshop. Roel Crabbe is a hugely popular teacher listed on shamanicteachers.com. And there is a reason for this. His presence, his work, and his connection to spirit are quite extraordinary. He will be teaching a new workshop on the Shift Network.
Roel has been studying with me for a long time, and I just love his sensitivity and how he brings through the magic from the spirit realms. I can remember being at workshops where I was not feeling well and Roel would sing these amazingly beautiful healing songs to me. There was no way I would not get healed listening to Roel’s songs.
His intro call is already done. But you can still sign up for the workshop using the link below. I am already signed up. I would not miss this one for any reason! I hope to see you there.
In Shamanic Journeying to Awaken Your Ancestral Lineage: Connect with Your Ancestors & Future Generations for Healing, Empowerment & Guidance with shamanic practitioner and teacher Roel Crabbé, you’ll receive healing and guidance from Ancestral Wisdom Keepers from both the past and the future during a powerful guided shamanic journey carried by Roel and his ancestral healing songs.

Joanne Halverson is a long-term practitioner of shamanism, and she does beautiful work. This is what she is sharing her work now.
The two Coast Salish shamans who’ve mentored me for twenty-five years are from a matriarchal (woman/earth) centered culture: generous, strong, creative, and nurturing. These potent feminine healing traditions are soul mending. My work centers on passing on (with permission) their enthralling ancient shamanic traditions, and wisdom in academic settings and in my psycho-shamanic healing practice. I am offering individual and group shamanic trainings and mentorship and run an intense apprenticeship program for budding medicine women. When the weather warms, I run retreats on sacred Coast Salish land for individuals and groups. All gifts keep on giving so I am sharing a link to a free printable coloring book I created and donated to a climate activist therapist group.
