Some of my most powerful soul retrieval and deathwalking work is done in dreams. In connection with my work with schizophrenia sufferers, many of whom are sensitive, brilliant and artistic young men, I recently had a Monty Pythonish dream in which a terrified teenage boy, who had turned 'mad' and run away into a dense tract of forest, was being pursued by a group of white-coated psychiatrists wielding hypodermic needles. They couldn't see him as he hid in the dense thickets, at which point I offered to find him and calm him down through shamanic intervention...

The oversoul is a pure and personal link to the spirit world which comes to us as we take our first breath, and leaves us when we take our last. If our three souls (body soul, mind soul, and oversoul) are out of balance, then our thinking and actions are also out of balance...

A typical trait of our ordinary reality is to function as a separate arbitrary configuration. This sort of configuration holds fixed edges preventing free circulation of energy. As a result the limited amount of energy available inside this separate reality is all we can apparently rely on. On the other hand, from a multidimensional perspective, energy existing in this and other universes is basically infinite, and it is only the human separate paradigm itself that inhibits us from accessing it...
Editor's Note: I have grown up with astrology and have realized over the years how powerful a tool this is in assisting your life. This is an interesting perspective I've not seen before. Enjoy!

I am a sangoma. What does this mean? A sangoma is an African traditional healer who merges with her ancestors for the purpose of healing. It is a spiritual calling, not a chosen profession. An apprentice sangoma, called a thwasa, studies with a mentor for approximately two years and must learn how to prepare herbal medicines (muti), how to interpret dreams, how to incorporate spirits, how to diagnose illness through divination with bones, and how to heal both physical and spiritual illness...
Editor's Note: Having personally had the privilege of working with Gretchen in the past, I can attest to her amazing abilities and skills as a shamanic healer trained in the African heritage.

We all have choice about how we hold painful events from our past in our mind. Denial, distraction, repression, and projection are unskillful energy-draining ways of dealing with pain...

I recently had the opportunity to attend a Conscious Elders Gathering at which I led a team of three, bringing spirit and ceremony into the work...
Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: I am particularly fond of the phrase 'the only way out is through.' Tom Pinkson's recounting of a recent gathering of Conscious Elders in Northern California inspired me to wonder if the creation of these pods is one of the essential steps we need to face global challenges. I hope the seeds of this movement take root. Graciously, Tom outlines the basic tenets for like-minded, conscious elders to come together and form a community to affect change.

Shamanism is humanity’s oldest spiritual practice. But what do we mean by that? And what do we mean when we say that we are spiritual or trying to live a spiritual life? Spirituality has always been one of the focal points in my shamanic workshops...
Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: Arvick's book, The Magic of Shamanism, is a rich exploration of shamanic healing and traditions. This article is an excerpt from it on spirituality and how through shamanic journeying we deepen our understanding of personal and universal truth. She shares how the symbolic messages communicated during journeys help us transcend internal obstacles and limitations.
