I See

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...

AKA:    Practice on Healing Yourself or Recap - When Bits and Bobs of Emotional Energy Slide Through the Cracks Take your pick. ---- Shiny and new. First try out of the box and I almost take off the top of my thumb. It was a colossal two-part movement. Slow motion. Time shifted. Not comprehending as I watch the knife begin ...

Go home, be excited to learn something new, think about what was said and wait until the last minute to d...

A fun game I sometimes play with my husband is called "What's in the Amazon package?" He gets something delivered from Amazon, and then I get to guess what it is. Now, granted, I admit there are some inherent hints that give me an advantage when we do this game. For instance, I know him, his likes/dislikes, and I see the general size of the item by...

The predicament is, I really don't want to come out of hiding. Never have, if we're being honest. Even when I was "public" I'd rather not have been. Extrovert extraordinaire in the world. Joyful, crazy silly, to some annoying and obnoxious. People commented on the easy rapport I had with others. Oh yes, and if you were close enough, ...

Our purpose here is the definition of that awareness in shamanic terms, however, any definition must also reflect the current state of human knowledge based on the empirical ability of those without shamanic training, to reach at least some comprehension of terminology and application. Normal definitions of...
