022- What To Do When your Soul Connected Relationship is On the Rocks- Part 2 show art 022- What To Do When your Soul Connected Relationship is On the Rocks- Part 2

Practical Shamanism

One of the hardest things is getting to clarity of whether to stay or go when we love someone deeply but the day-to-day experience of the relationship isn’t working for us. This is further complicated when we have a deep and authentic soul connection, what people sometimes call twin flames or soul mates. In this two-part series, I will talk about all the things to consider to get to clarity about whether to stay or go.

020- Wisdom for Energetically Sensitive People in Crazy Times show art 020- Wisdom for Energetically Sensitive People in Crazy Times

Practical Shamanism

If you’re sensitive to energy, this 2020/2021 chapter of human experience has been impactful at an additional level beyond all the obvious ones.  The loudness of the human collective consciousness can overstimulate you and make it harder to connect into the larger peace and beauty of the universe.  But don’t worry, there are ways to turn down the volume of the outside world.

Why our brains misrepresent the potential for new beloveds.

018- Clearing Codependency show art 018- Clearing Codependency

Practical Shamanism

Codependent overgiving feels icky and exhausting.  But did you know that energetically sensitive people are more vulnerable to codependent dynamics?  In addition, those who express the Archetype of the Healer (professionally or personally) often need to provide this aspect with adult supervision to prevent overgiving, care-taking, and personal depletion.

017- Overcoming Addiction: A Graceful Approach - Part 2 show art 017- Overcoming Addiction: A Graceful Approach - Part 2

Practical Shamanism

Get the details of the protocol!  My guides have a powerful approach to dismantling addiction in a way that shifts away from being at war with yourself.  While long-term, abstinence may be the path of peace, in the short term, interrupting the automatic flow and making a healthier deal with yourself around engaging with the thing you’re trying to quit can help to shift the experience.  My guides offer a very specific approach here.

016- Overcoming Addiction: A Graceful Approach - Part 1 show art 016- Overcoming Addiction: A Graceful Approach - Part 1

Practical Shamanism

In addressing addiction, it’s valuable to understand ourselves through a compassionate lens.  Your intensity of need for the thing you’re trying to let go of may be outdated.  And it can be helpful to understand how your own biology may push you in a not so healthy direction if you don’t know how to provide it with adult supervision.

015- Getting Rid of Entities and Keeping Them Gone show art 015- Getting Rid of Entities and Keeping Them Gone

Practical Shamanism

If you’re someone who is dealing with entities, I’m so sorry.  I know it can be scary and stigmatized.  I hope to share information that will help you deal with the situation in an effective and practical way.  If you’re not someone who is dealing with entities, you might want to skip this podcast unless you can think of them as you would the creatures in a National Geographic special about animals in another part of the world: interesting, but not something you need to worry about.

014- Shamanic Weight Loss show art 014- Shamanic Weight Loss

Practical Shamanism

You know how some amazing, heart-centered people have a longing to carry less weight but feel hopeless because everything they’ve tried has failed?  While strongly supporting body positivity and believing in “healthy at any weight”, if you also desire to carry few pounds, I’d love to share some wisdom from my guides about approaching this in a way that is graceful and kind.

013- Energetic and Emotional Sensitivity versus Reactivity show art 013- Energetic and Emotional Sensitivity versus Reactivity

Practical Shamanism

While the two may go together, energetic and emotional sensitivity are a quality, either innate or developed, that allows us to sense that which is subtle and nuanced.  Reactivity, on the other hand, is often about unresolved past emotions and sometimes a need for an upgrade in skills for relating to other people.

More Episodes

My guides have often illuminated the richness and beauty of the soul experience of being transgender.  There’s also deep compassion regarding the harm that prejudiced human frameworks cause.  There are good reasons a soul may opt to come into a body which has a biological sex that is different from the individual’s gender.  Sometimes the soul’s plan doesn’t go as elegantly as hoped for or the discomfort is much greater than anticipated.  Sometimes the soul’s goal is activism.  Sometimes it’s about mastery in the less familiar form of magic and energy work that is more aligned with the energy body of a man or a woman even though that’s in opposition to the soul’s gender identity and affinity.  In any of these cases, a person may find themselves navigating a tension between the soul’s gender and the body’s birth sex.  Sometimes, it can be supportive to realign the energy body to the correct gender configuration matching that of the soul rather than the human biology.  Also, learning to move in sexuality in a manner aligned with gender, regardless of anatomy, creates space for a freer, fuller, and more aligned expression.

This is by no means a comprehensive discussion on the subject, just some frameworks that I’ve seen from the transgender clients I’ve had the honor to support.  I apologize for any misused terms or incorrect language in talking about this subject.  I incorrectly used “gender” when the correct term would have been “sex” in several places. In addition, the most up to date language changes quickly and I have more of an engaged and curious layperson level of education about the social justice conversations regarding transgender issues rather than expertise, so I may well have made other errors as well.  I hope you’ll grant me grace.  And, if you’re someone who would be hurt by incorrectly used terms or language, please don’t listen to this episode, since the last thing I would ever want to do is cause distress.
