Shadow Work

Our personal spiritual development unfolds in cycles. Most agree that just as there are ascending and descending phases cosmically that govern planetary consciousness, there are also light and shadow phases that catalyze an individual soul’s realization. At this point in my journey, I have a strong sense of my own light and shadow phases, so I thought I’d share with you what to look out for during both of these seasons and some navigation tips that will hopefully help you on the path.

Symbolism & Intuition

Did you know that Spirit will talk to you in meditation and dream time through symbols?

Yep! Symbolic communication is one of the main ways our spirit guides speak to us, because as meditators we contact divine presence with our subconscious mind which speaks primarily in symbols.

Here’s what you may not already know. There are two levels of symbolic meaning in meditation. One level of understanding is universal, or true for most everyone. Symbolic meaning that most of us can agree on, like water represents emotion or lion represents courage etc. Here’s a great dictionary of symbols that I find super thorough and useful for the academic level of symbols. (Despite the title, it’s great for both men and women or any gender ID.)

Shamanism

How to use Earth-based spirituality to heal yourself and grow

Over the years, I’ve had many meditation experiences that I would describe as shamanic. Visions of inner shamans that were initiating me, or messages from my guides about shamanic practices that could heal me in specific ways.

I find the shamanic element so fruitful in my own journey, so I wanted to share some of those insights with you guys in case they will be helpful.

WHAT IS A SHAMAN?

I believe a shaman is a mediator between the world of spirit and the world of matter. Often a healer or a guide. Someone who goes into the spirit world in meditation time to help others, by finding out information or invoking healing.

Cosmic Intuition | Q&A

I’m one of the lucky ones. I’m fortunate enough to have an online group of mystic-friends. A group where we share our most transcendent meditations, our super out-there psychic experiences and deep, probably unanswerable spiritual questions.

This community has been so nourishing to me, and keeps me super checked into my spiritual life. For a long time, I was going the meditation path alone, so now that I’ve found it, my little community of mystics is mucho important to me!

I wanted to share a little with you guys about what we’re up to over there. This week, we’re generating some dialogue and answering a list of Cosmic and Intuitive questions under the #starseed tag – which just means we’re talking about cosmic consciousness.

Using Dreams Spiritually

As some of you may know, our dream time can be a deeply spiritual time. I think there’s a spectrum of dreaming, from the totally mundane dream that echos the day’s events to the highly spiritual visitation where you encounter an angelic presence. In our lifetime, we’ll likely get to experience this entire spectrum.

But how is dream content spiritual? The main thing to know is that our mind is divided into two main aspects, the conscious and the subconscious. The conscious mind is the part of our being that we can see and know clearly. The conscious mind is where the limited, individual sense of self resides. It’s practical and useful. The subconscious is that part of our psyche that is just beneath our conscious awareness. We can sense it intuitively in dreams and meditation, but not quite “see” it directly. The content and experience there is not limited to the small self or the individual personality. Rather, it reflects the higher-self, the broader consciousness that connects all things, and the higher soul.

The Keys of Egypt

How to access the spiritual legacy of Egypt for your healing and growth

You might be wondering what Egypt has to do with spirituality. I might’ve thought the same thing before I started meditating. But after I developed a strong meditation practice and acquired a clear connection to my spirit guides, it became abundantly clear that Egypt was a core theme for me to explore in this life. And that’s true for a lot of us! That’s because Egypt represents a very important time in human history and a unique expression of human consciousness.

In short, Egypt developed a highly advanced spiritual system. Mystics of that period grounded a lot of spiritual science and truths that we are meant to rediscover at this time.

Day of the Dead

‘I’m a Dreamer’ by Josephine Foster

And how we can connect to those in the after-life

Like any good card-carrying mystic, the topic of ghosts and spirits is one of my favorites.

Who doesn’t like a good ghost story? They’re nearly always interesting. They’re also a great entry-point into broader spiritual considerations. 

You might’ve noticed that experiences with spirits can seem almost like a “gateway drug” to a more spiritually-oriented life. For a lot of us, before we believed in the “other side,” we had some brush with the paranormal. Often, these experiences with ghosts or spirits in the house or other unexplained sightings may have been a seed for our later spiritual development. Our first clues as to the realm of the soul.
