  1. Hi Toc, No problem about your English - it's plenty good, and better than my French! We do have some French members. As far as sleeping with your dreaming stone, there's a few things you can try. Some people have tied it to their hands, or put it in a pocket, if they have one. I have put it in my pillow case and tried to hold it while I fall asleep with my hand inside the pillow case. Of course, having it in your hand while asleep the whole time isn't possible, but it's best if you can have it on your body or very close to you while you fall asleep so you can align with the energy o
  2. hi redfeather, I'm sorry to read about your troubles on your path. Depression seems to be a common theme for those on a spiritual path. I have dealt with it for a lot of years. It's very hard for people who have not dealt with depression to understand it. If they care for you, maybe they are trying to give you the best help they can, but without understanding where you are coming from, it's very hard to offer good support. Add on top of that a spiritual journey that most people wouldn't know what to make of, and it's often like you're standing worlds apart. The most important thing I
  3. hi Dreamer123, First, I would not worry about wasting sexual energy in a normal course of things. I think that is an unproductive avenue of control that doesn't really help (most people). Of course, you can go to extremes and do bad things, but normal human sexual behavior is not generally a problem with regards to dreaming energy. As far as the dreams or dreaming practices themselves go, I'm not a Castaneda practitioner, nor would I pretend to be. That being said, I think specific steps he was taught were taught to him for a reason, and aren't appropriate for everybody. Taking contr
  4. You're a true shaman based on the community you serve, doing shamanic work. These days, I doubt anybody would call you that, but the word doesn't matter. If you're called to help people in that way and you can do it, thats what matters. That being said, not everybody can or should want to walk a shamanic path. It's a difficult personal choice. The best guidance anybody can give you is to know yourself so you can make the best choice you can make for yourself. Also, beware of entities - nothing is free.
  5. hi Snakeskin, I would get a good amount of experience recapping other material first, getting a lot of experience with the exercise itself, and a lot of your energy back. Maybe recap some things related to the episodes, if not the episodes themselves. Then try some of the easier or shorter episodes, however you want to define it. Remember when recapping them, you want to keep yourself "in" the event you're recapping, but also separate from it. You want to take back the energy from it, not become the event and relive it completely. That's not the point of recapping it. You want to unw

    Hi Aleyurs, Was there anything going on in your life starting around 2 months ago or so that was new or unusual? When the dream first starts, is there anything unusual or does it begin in a weird way? -karl
  7. Those types of weird illnesses and experiences do happen for people with the inclination towards a shamanic path. However, there's also usually a pattern where there's an inclination towards the shamanic, a desire for your energy to experience the "bigger" stage, healing, visions, etc., and then a fighting-back process, trying to get back to "normal" life. That creates a conflict where you end up in a downward spiral and the shamanic sickness happens. That's sort of the classic variation. In some, especially in childhood, you can just have it happen, but often it's part of this sor
  8. Decreasing sleep time is a bad idea. You need sleep for a lot of reasons. Lack of sleep, or reducing sleep, will decrease your physical and mental ability to deal with illnesses. Intentionally staying awake at the expense of sleep is a good way to drive yourself insane, and not in a good way. If I may be so bold, it seems you see sleep as a negative thing, or lost time, or something. I'm not sure. Sleep and dreaming time is very meaningful, especially to shamanic path seekers. It can be deeply shamanic. In fact, some of our most shamanic experiences can be deeply in sleep - trying to forc
  9. Can you describe some of the things you are dealing with about it? Like what are some of the central parts of the depression, or the most difficult things about it? -karl
  10. Hi Karl, 
    Long time no see!
    I couldn't seem to figure out how to send personal messages, so I wrote it here.
    My partner is keen to get into these courses, and I want to start again with her. Do you know when the next set of classes are likely to start? Are there April/May ones?


  11. Recap is really the best tool, most of the time. With the recap, your own intent and work will release other people's energy within your own energy, release patterns, and recover energy stuck elsewhere. That usually does the job well, even for difficult and traumatic events, though it can require a good amount of work. Once in a while, there are issues with self-healing through recap, where other tools, or a shamanic healing would be better. -karl
  12. My take: Energy debt is when, though a process of actions or manipulation, you have inflicted or caused somebody else to take some course where they have suffered some sort of harm or created issues for themselves they otherwise would not have where they got hurt. This is a serious thing, not an everyday or casual problem, and not simply somebody taking advice and ending up having made a mistake. Some examples where you might create energetic debt: 1) inflicting energetic damage, 2) misleading somebody, 3) manipulating somebody, 4) using somebody for your own benefit, etc. You get the ide
  13. hi SacredBridge, Lucidity in dreaming isn't necessary to have shamanic dreaming movements or follow a dreaming intent, for example, to not be afraid in dreams, or to change them when things happen. Sometimes, moving more intently in dreams in a direct manner will actually decrease lucidity in dreaming because the energy is moving in a way where the mind doesn't become involved. Lucidity is often more a mental awareness or consciousness thing than a dreaming thing. You can "know" you're dreaming in a dream but not rise to consciousness in a lucid manner because they are two sepa
  14. Yes, we do unknowingly align with other intents. For some, it can happen a lot. As peastacey said, recap is the best tool to use. It does a number of things. It can help you recover energy from past intents, including where you agree with other intents. Some of that is emotional energy (usually) which makes us vulnerable to it. It can help you learn to understand how it looks when other intents are out there, trying to get your agreement. It can teach you what your own energy is doing, why it wants to align with somebody else's intent. Recap is the most essential tool to get a hand
