Sale on Readings!

Etsy just rolled out their sales and coupons option, so I’m running a week-long sale on readings and healings. The price is 50% off, now only $20 (Canadian dollars).

I’m going on a spiritual vacation tomorrow and would love to do some work for others while I’m there. Please note that my internet will be limited, so I will only be able to send the full readings when I get back on the 19th.

Consider visiting my Etsy here!

 

Spiritual Work and Practice

I’ve been doing very well lately — crafting, writing, and helping others with spiritual matters. It has kindled a thirst to do more: to help more people, to spend more time in prayer, to develop new shamanic practices. It’s a pretty good place to be, and a good “problem” to have!

I think this state of mind culminated from the solidification of my personal beliefs. I developed a system of understanding shamanic spirituality that blends very seamlessly with quantum physics, and also appeals to my heart. It is, at its core, only my opinion. But to finally have a rock-solid base that is unique to me and that I know in my gut I have complete faith in, without any doubt…it is freeing and beautiful and inspiring.

The one thing I love to see the most in others’ spiritual journeys is the culmination of this stage of satisfaction and certainty, and it doesn’t matter to me one bit what those beliefs actually entail. We are all unique and entitled to our own truth journeys. They can be a quick and sudden enlightenment or a lifelong pursuit of learning, but when someone reaches this point of faith in their own truth, they have unlocked their best potential.

 

Connecting With Your Higher Self

Daily rituals are key for getting in touch with your greater potential. Prayer, vision work, shamanic journeys — all are wonderful means to discover the wisdom and healing that your higher self has to offer.

My understanding of the higher self equates it with the quantum waveform, our full potential across all possibilities and across all possible universes, expressed as a single infinite spirit. It is a singularity of sorts. This being exists the same way light can be both particle and wave. We are the particle, and the higher self is the wave.

Since I also believe that the imagination is a direct sense of potential – a sense like sight and sound – our imagination is a real vehicle for discovering our higher selves.  We can connect with our higher selves simply by envisioning them, and no vision is actually wrong.

With a little discipline in learning meditation or trance-like states of altered consciousness, you can even converse with your higher self to gain wisdom and insight.

This is not quite as esoteric as it sounds! I do employ rattles and occasionally drums to aid in achieving a shamanic state of consciousness, but it is very much like entering a waking dream, and you definitely don’t have to be a shaman to do it. It’s another way of listening and seeing. Done with an open heart, you will find that the insight you receive does not feel like it comes from you — you will know you’re not just making it all up, but that it has deep value.

I have been helping others reach out to their higher selves and when I envision these beings, they are so beautiful they take my breath away and give me hope for humanity. We all have such unbelievable potential.

If you would like help connecting, I do offer readings, healings, and work to connect people with their guides and higher selves here: Shamanic Readings, Healings and Soul Retrievals.

 

What’s in My Spiritual Toolkit?

I love to create spiritual items that resonate with power and meaning, and I also love peeking at other people’s altars and medicine bags on Pinterest. So now I’d like to share a few items that lie in my own spiritual toolkit.

First is my carrying bag, made with deerskin, a coyote face pelt, a compass, and other charms.

Next is one of my favourite rattles, which has green apatite that I found myself, freshly dug from the earth, as well as labradorite, antler, and coyote fur. I prefer rattles over drums and they suit my quiet nature, as well as being more convenient to carry.

Next is a tool I devised myself, though the concept behind it is ancient. It is a “soul catcher” for use in shamanic soul retrievals. In a soul retrieval, a soul fragment may briefly be captured in a crystal or some other vessel before being sent back to unity in the soul from which it came.

Then there is a bottle of my homemade incense, a rich and heady scent, and a little rawhide bottle I made to carry some teeth and claws of power animals.

Next is my “prayer stick”. It just has good energy!

This last object is very special to me. It is a representation of one of my inner child soul parts, but I carry it not as a reminder to be kind to myself, but a reminder that I AM good to my soul parts.  The sculpt is in polymer clay and not one of my best, but I adore it anyway.

So that’s some of my spiritual items that are near and dear to me. Please feel free to share yours with me!

A Simple Prayer

May I awaken my soul to consciousness. May I increase, this day, my awareness of possibilities.

May I connect to my greater dreaming, my higher self.

May I become the consciousness of my full potential. May I become aware of all things within my life’s touch.

May I give thanks and blessings always, continuously.

Getting in Touch with Your Higher Self: Imagination

Are you a peacekeeper? Are you highly imaginative, full of dreams and creativity? Do people remark on your calm nature? If so, you are likely naturally connected to your higher self — even if you don’t know it yet!

My own discovery and investigation into the idea of Higher Selves has led me to specific conclusions that not everyone will agree with. My theory attempts to blend spirituality and science seamlessly.

I believe that the soul is identical to the quantum wave function, which contains all possible paths and outcomes that could occur. Your ultimate soul contains all possible  variations, timelines, and universes in which you could exist. This is your highest soul, which I also define as the higher self.

So our souls are really the equivalent of our potentials. How can we connect with our souls, our higher selves, and our best or full potentials? How can we know our higher selves at all when its full potential is infinite and our capacity for knowledge is necessarily limited?

For me, the answer is our imagination. I actually believe that the imagination is defined as a direct sense of potential — a sense that we all have, like vision and hearing. Being a sense of potential, the imagination therefore is our sense of the soul. Our imagination and dreamscapes become our gateways to the soul and our higher selves.

Shamans who journey already know this, albeit perhaps in a different way, the the shamanic journey is the natural tool of the spiritual cosmonaut.  But creative work and dreamwork also puts us in touch with our full potential. Free-association, automatic writing, and unedited art of any kind (like painting without trying to accomplish anything, just laying down colours as they come to you) are all your first-line tools to open your imagination to your infinite potential self.

I’ll be writing more about the Higher Self and what it means, why it’s important, and how you can connect with it in future posts, so stay tuned 🙂
