Shamanism can sound arcane, exotic, distant, "other" -- and in the minds of many Western people, this is precisely how and where shamanism exists: somewhere "out there". It is liminal, on the edge of normalcy...
Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: Matt eloquently describes what shamanism is and how it has the ability to shift consciousness and change lives for the better. This is such a beautifully written and concise article about shamanism and what it is. Enjoy!

When I think of summer during my growing up years in London, I remember long days playing endless games. The 2012 Summer Olympics exhibited all the pomp and circumstance of a Danny Boyle production.
For me it's not the obvious stories that grabbed my interest, but the unlikely heroes who burst onto the world stage having seemingly overcome incredible adversity along the way who truly inspire me...

Well, I didn’t know it was an ancient art at the time. Tree-wrapping, that is. I was in the bush, I had some wool and some colored twine, I had some time on my hands and, as much as I love the Australian bush, it’s always seemed a little bit devoid of colour to me...
Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Art Therapy comes in many different shapes and sizes - which is one of the many reasons I love it. Clothing a tree in colour is as much an act of creation, a work of art, as is painting or drawing. And equally as thereapeutic - especially if you connect your actions and consciousness to the similarities across cultures.

Attack lines. Sounds inviting, doesn’t it? When you are the owner of attack lines in your hands, you are internalizing your own anger and directing it at some part of your self – and thus, some part of your life...
Editor's Note from Carolyn White: Did you know that 30% of your cerebral cortex - the area of your brain that plays a key role in memory, attention, perceptual awareness, thought, language, as well as consciousness - is dedicated to processing information from your hands? Scientific hand analysis interprets what's energetically happening with your mind/body/spirit connection via the study the hand's topography.

Unless we are willing to shift the context or the paradigm that we operate in about love, any actions we undertake will lead to only a variation of the past. Most of us have been conditioned by society and environmental factors to operate in one or all the three models of love described below...
Editor´s Note from Doris Helge: Often, even when our hearts feel the joyful vibration of unconditional love, we are unaware of love's unlimited possibilities to elevate our consciousness and spiritual development. How many ways do you feel the love that is such an innate, free resource, resonating with Your Higher Self?

In traditional wisdom and knowledge, life is a continuum that does not end at the moment of death. One of the most important traditional tasks of the seer, shaman, medicine man or woman is to assist people who are either dying or the spirits of those who have died to make the transition into great domain of consciousness...

One of the first tools Access ConsciousnessTM teaches is “Light and Heavy.”
We ask a question or read the energy of a situation and ask: “Does this feel light or heavy to me?”
Editor's Note: Success, skill and competency in energy medicine all rest on a foundation of self-senstivity, self-trust and psychic self-protection, feeling safe to explore. Rudolf Steiner said to teach children new ideas first thru polarities. This applies equally for encouraging adults to reawaken long-unused perceptions. Light~heavy, warm~cool, upward~downward and loud~soft are good percepts to "listen" for when encountering something new. Which pair of these is easiest for you to perceive inside?

According to Ayurveda, there are subtle channels in the body called nadis that carry the energies of both love and sex. While there are 72,000 of these nadi channels, only one carries the energy of sex, and six carry the energy of true love or pure consciousness...
Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: How does Ayurveda view sex and love?
Interestingly, Dr. John Douillard discusses how the subtle energy channels called nadis are the regulators and paths for the conduction of pure love energy and sexual energy. With a clear distinction regarding the respective journeys for each type of energy, Dr. Douillard outlines how our choices govern the process of fullfillment for love and sex. Namaste
