The other face of freedom.

Here I am sitting in front of the white page again, this time choosing my moment instead of waiting for that elusive instant where I have something to say or share. Why not conjuring it instead? Freedom is the price to pay when living as a maker and you pay it in sweat and pain, those currencies your will and intent bring out of you in order to cha...

When was the last time you were moved to tears? Overwhelming emotion attached to nothing specific other than the exquisiteness in the perfection of the moment, bringing a tear to your eye? "Can't remember". "Not really, no". "Ummmm, maybe …"  Came across a curiosity from my past yesterday. A list entitled, "Things I love", numbered t...

Why would you want to? (Article's question.) So, you want to be a shaman (shamanscave.com) The article "spoke" to me, I checked off all the boxes. If, as you read, there's even an inkling of: "been there", describes my world, it's talking to me; and think, you won't have to deal with it because it's already happened… Turn...     &nbs...

I pull up besides the house that needs clearing. The electricity suddenly goes out in the whole neighborhood. Blackness descends, as well as a sense of foreboding. The energies swirling outside are palpable. Aliens? Demons? Definitely not human. I wait in the car. Seeing. Feeling.  Something pushes on the car. I wait. Energy is being pushed to...

Today's world offers unlimited opportunities to make a difference in small ways and to practice your skills as a student of the shamanic or moving energy. Are you willing to act in small ways, or must it be advantageously full of "woo woo" (big shamanic term there) before considering? --- She was struggling, that was apparent, and her teenage daugh...

I enjoy playing music a lot and teaching it too, all ages all levels, all styles, often I see similar problems repackaged differently. In the adult category I have many students starting lessons to enhance their lives, make it better, more creative, maybe play well enough so one day they can take a tune to a party and ...

The dread of the white page, a grasp on human energy, empty staff paper, or better, a silent room... Every morning a new page, a new chapter is written, every night brings the destroyer, we burn it, let the wind carry it. Our past becomes a white page, empty, only then can we see clearly, move freely, live and die without regrets. We are Makers, em...

It's a crazy notion thinking you're ever finished with recapping in any of its myriad forms and I'm sure bets were placed behind my back on my latest folly. The longer you move energy as a maker, the faster repercussions are brought to your attention and surprises occur when forgotten intents surface for completion, decades later. ---- During all m...

Driving home at dusk on a winding road. I can feel deer. A couple minutes later I come up behind two cars, the first with its blinker lights on, a young buck sauntering across the road.  The car in front of me continues as the first one switches its blinkers off and pulls ahead so I push hard with my energy on the second: this one da...

Victimization, it's time to die. It's place in the world is changing and the choke-hold grip on personal lives loosening. Self-pity and victimization, resulting from other's destructive words and actions, have become acceptable expressions of one's energy in the world, gaining alignment and agreement. Some people build their lives around it. Global...
