The support that is most helpful when we are in an emotionally charged state comes from other people empathizing with our situation and showing they care. This validation of our experience can then give us the courage we need to face the issue for ourselves. Imagine that you are walking alone in the dark. Perhaps it is on a dark street, in a dark room or hallway, or out on a trail at night, and you likely feel some discomfort or fear.  More
Saturn in Sagittarius
Thursday, September 17 was one of those days when everything happened, though in my view Saturn's ingress into Sagittarius was the main event. Saturn's two-year journey through Sagittarius involves squares to Nessus, Neptune, and Chiron in Pisces, and conjunctions to the Great Attractor and the Galactic Core—as well as other slow-moving points still holding space in those late degrees of Sagittarius, close to the Galactic Core.

True spirituality requires us to be fully present for life. For us to begin to look directly at the world situation is not a question of ceremony or of religion. Meditation helps us to look deeply at the sorrow that exists now in our world, and to look at our individual and collective relationship to it, to bear witness to it, to acknowledge it instead of running away. Without mindfulness and compassion the suffering is too great to bear. We close our minds. We close our eyes and our hearts. More

An Interview With John Perkins
Omega: Was there a turning point or defining moment in your life that “lifted the veil” for you? John: There have been a lot of turning points, but probably the key one happened when I was in the Amazon and I got very, very ill. I was dying and lost a lot of weight in a very short period of time, then a shaman healed me in one night in a shamanic shapeshifting ceremony. More

This morning, like every morning, I sat cross-legged on a cushion on the floor, rested my hands on my knees, closed my eyes, and did nothing but breathe for 20 minutes. People say the hardest part about meditating is finding the time to meditate, which makes sense. Who these days has time to do nothing? It’s hard to justify. More

All energy can change its character based on our thoughts. Thoughts affect and alter energy. Everything we see first originated as a thought—the great painter of the world. As a medium, I've intuited many times that all physical matter on Earth derives from a higher mental level. Each work of art, each invention, every new medial breakthrough...was first created in the Spiritual Realms and eventually trickled down to a recipient as "inspiration" or "droplets of God." More

Water that flows from the Earth, to trees, and us, is like milk that flows from mother to child. It’s similar to the love that pours from ancient mother goddesses to assist people through every phase of life, including death. One such mother goddess who ushers us through death’s doorway is the Egyptian Lady of the Sycamore Tree. The Lady rejuvenates those who are dying and refreshes the souls of the dead in the afterlife by offering them water from the branches of her sacred tree. More
