Burning, in a country divided in fear. Tennessee. Oakland.
Fire. Rockets over head, bombs explode,
Beloveds….this is an important message today of light, peace, love, unity, truth and clarity for you all. First things first,
Throughout our lives we often pick up beliefs about others and ourselves that do nothing more than distract us from our healing. One of the most powerful beliefs is what I call the badge of "I'm a good person". This can be a painful
Simple, but not always easy. True healing involves the ability to go to the places of our deepest woundings, be with the pain, and then allow the pain to move through our body and mind. Feeling the emotions fully and not holding on to them.
The more of your own light you embrace, the more authentic you become. And the more authentic you become the more authentic and light-filled people you will find in your world. You will resonate with them and they with you. You will mutually support, uplift and add joy, strength, peace and love to each others lives. This is an incredible blessing and something to rejoice over.

In shamanic work the questions of ego and its place come up for every single student. There is confusion. What is the ego? Don’t we need one? Isn’t it important to have a healthy ego so we can promote ourselves and be proud of who we are? Why all this talk about killing the ego, isn’t that crazy? If God meant for us not to have an ego she wouldn’t have given us one, right?
