The idea that childhood experiences come to bear on who we are as adults has now been accepted as common knowledge. One of the therapies that attempts, in a very explicit and direct manner, to achieve mental and spiritual health by addressing and healing childhood experiences is Inner Child work. This work suggests that the human psyche has child-like aspects and that these aspects or parts can be accessed and communicated with to facilitate healing...


Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: Arvick Baghramian's article explores the opportunity of bridging inner child work and shamanic journeying. Arvick provides insight on how directly interacting with the inner child can restore our connection to the wisdom, power and grace that comes from reintegrating this core aspect of ourselves.

In a very real sense, these outer planets’ cycles are of a duration longer than an average lifetime. For sure, the 84-year cycle of Uranus is now within range of the average lifespan, at least here in the West, but that was not necessarily true when it was discovered. Neptune and Pluto’s orbits are, of course, well beyond any one person’s lifetime. We don’t personally live that long...

Before we get into the specific chakras and how to recognize each of them and which one you are in, let’s take one step back, and make sure you have all the background you need to understand what I am pointing out here. This will be a digression....

In this part of the blog, we will start by examining the astrological planets as they relate to the system of subtle internal energies called the chakras, a branch of esoteric astrology. Also called occult or secret astrology, esoteric astrology is by definition somewhat difficult to study. It is occult (hidden) or secret, not because it is some deep dark secret, and not because someone or some group is trying to keep it from us, but because it is, by its very nature, subtle and hard to grasp with the mind. It might be more helpful to say, as the Tibetans do, that it is self-secret. It hides itself from us. We can’t grasp it.
