An introduction to working within unseen worlds

by Robert Owings

All spiritual practices maintain some form of connection to unseen worlds, be that Buddha fields or the heaven promised so prominently in Christianity and Islam. In some regard shamanism is not that different; however, where those religions offer the unseen world in an afterlife, shamanism opens those realms in this life as well. Plus, it’s a vastly more expansive, animated, and interactive version to the concept.

Shamanic practice has been described as crossing the veil, walking in other worlds, and a direct spiritual engagement with spirits, deities, and other realms. Naturally, such processes bring one into contact with unseen worlds, and the beings that populate these domains. It’s been going on since day one, since that first proto shaman took on the work.

How to communicate with plants and trees

by Bob Makransky

In order to communicate with plants (or people), you have to be able to regard them as your equals. If you are afraid (ashamed) to talk with homeless people, beggars, crazy people, etc. then you’ll also find it difficult to talk with plants. However, it’s actually easier to communicate with plants than it is to communicate with people because plants don’t have defenses and self-importance agendas in place to engage our own defenses and self-importance agendas.

Protection from night-time astral attacks

by Annie Dieu-Le-Veut

In this new video, Sandi Adams and I pass on our expertise in creating and protecting sacred space, which we believe is more important than ever.

Now, with one in four US students being diagnosed with a mental disorder and on SSRI drugs, there can hardly be any surprise that so many of them are being manipulated into rioting over issues that they barely understand. Some call them the Snowflakes, because they are so easily triggered into total meltdown. But it’s not just the drugs – there are also attacks from the astral planes which act like unconscious subliminals in that they can influence the behaviours of weak minded and vulnerable people.

Making Love in Faeryland, and the Trump Babyboom

One of the greatest challenges I found in writing my new book, The Bright World of the Gods, was the love scenes. There are three of them, between three different couples, and while they’re not explicit – it’s not Fifty Shades of Grey – I do linger on the scene a little longer than is polite, and so your specs might get a bit steamed up!

You know how in movies when they delicately cut away to the window and the curtains are blowing gently in the breeze? Well, I stay with the action just a few seconds longer than that. Long enough to bring the scene alive, anyway. Continue reading

The Jewelled Net of Indra shows the cosmological basis for holistic health

by Annie Dieu-Le-Veut

When our consciousness is aligned with the true principles of Nature, we understand then how our approach to health needs to be much more holistic and multi-faceted – like a jewel – than just the ‘magic bullet’ solutions of modern medicine.

This consciousness comes from inner contemplation, meditation and shamanic journeying into what some ancient sages called the Jewelled Net of Indra. In Mahayana Buddhism, the Jewelled Net of Indra is a metaphor that demonstrates the principles of interdependent origination in the creation. Continue reading

What is this book about?

The author of The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar is a shaman – someone who gets guidance from the spirits in the other dimensions.

So this book is about shamanic sexual healing across dimensions that leads to greater self empowerment and creative intelligence, which she has been taught by her guiding spirits, over decades. Ishtar explains, however, that this is not a New Age teaching, but a very old one, and that she is merely reconstituting a practice in which our earlier ancestors were skilled and which they valued highly as a means of spiritual evolution.

Five Golden Rules for Shamanic Healing

By Ishtar Babilu Dingir

I’m not really one who goes in much for shamanic healing. I’ve noticed that if you give someone healing, they tend to need it again a few months later. That might be good for building a client base … but that’s not really what I’m about. My approach is more along the lines of ‘if you give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day, but if you give him a fishing rod and teach him how to fish, he’ll eat for the rest of his life.’ Except in my case, I give him the cannery too.

In the Alchemist’s Garden – The Passage of the Snail

by Annie Dieu-Le-Veut

The ancient Egyptians honoured the scarab or dung beetle for several reasons, and not least because it oriented itself and navigated its path via the Milky Way.

I’ve been wondering if that is the reason why Mr Snail keeps somehow wriggling itself under my front door every night, and doing a little circuit on the red carpet (according to the silvery, gungy pattern he deposits) before leaving again? Continue reading

How shamans reweave and repurpose pain

By Annie Dieu-Le-Veut

Most of us carry around unresolved emotional pain and that translates, particularly later in life, to physical pain because our manifest sheath of our multi-layered, inter-dimensional mind-body continuum can no longer flow or dance with the rivers of energies. The rivers become dammed up and stagnant, and this leads to stiffness, particularly stiffness of the joints – hips, knees, shoulders. Continue reading

How shamans work with the spirits of the Land – otherwise known as the Fae

By Annie Dieu-Le-Veut

In my book Reclaiming Sovereignty: Shamanic Earth Magic, I explain about the shamanic relationship between humans and the spirits of the Land,  and about how shamans long ago worked with their own indigenous spirits to support the fertility and Sovereignty of the Land.

It is from that loving partnership between Man and Fae that the Sovereignty of the Land is derived, and shamanic sex rites are key to Sovereignty. Going back thousands of years into history, the right of Sovereignty was passed on to the newly crowned king during sex rites. Continue reading

Nine ways to be a shaman at work

By Brant Secunda

The Huichols, an indigenous tribe that lives in the mountainous region of central Mexico, are some of the happiness, healthiest, wisest people on earth. Many of them are shamans, and a surprising number of their tribe surpass 100 and work in the fields up until the day they die. I traveled to Mexico as a young man and was invited to live with the Huichols for 12 years, where I became the adopted grandson of a shaman named Don José Matsuwa, who lived to be 110. There are many lessons I learned from the Huichols, which I now write about and teach to others, with my teaching partner Mark Allen. One of them is how to make small behavioral changes at work that keep us happy, relaxed, motivated, and performing at our best. Here are nine of them you can apply every day. Continue reading
