Choosing Happiness In Difficult Times

Choosing Happiness In Difficult Times by Jan Engels-Smith

Choosing Happiness

 

Some articles or information downloads from the spirits necessitate distribution and then need to be communicated repeatedly. I realize this to be true with the article I wrote titled: Choosing Happiness in Difficult Times.

I use this article and the information that flowed from the spirits in both classes and with individual clients. I find it possesses a magic key that opens the door for deliberate manifestation. A magic key that highlights a vital ingredient to manifest desires with ease and joy. A vital ingredient that perpetuates success in obtaining desired outcomes. Without it deliberate manifestation can feel arduous or failed.

Each summer I have a workshop on Telepathic Communication, outside in a camp situation. Set in Tillamook, Oregon, the land we use is beautiful, with tall trees and lots of lush greenery. The scene is very much like a magical fairy garden, only our garden is 43 acres. I love this land and being able to commune with nature in such an undisputed way.

Most of the people that are attracted to my work have an environmental consciousness and are very pro-environment (tree huggers might suffice as a definition).  I usually arrive on the land a couple of days before everyone else, so I can set up and prepare. Two years ago when I arrived, there was a massive clear-cut operation in process just across the river from our camp. The water magnified the sound to a deafening decibel. The beeping trucks as they backed up to the location, the sound of many chain saws, cracking wood, and falling trees all created chills through my body with the destruction that was in progress.

I had always been sensitive to the logging in Oregon, so much so, that I would almost cry seeing log trucks on the street. My reaction to this assault on the forest was overwhelming. I was horrified to think of what would happen in the next few days, especially when 60 tree huggers began to arrive in camp the following day. I was certain that emotional havoc was about to happen. This situation could destroy the workshop. The only telepathic communication the participants were going to focus on was screaming trees.

I sat down to think through this and started to pray. I centered myself and asked for help. The guidance that I received was. “Choose happiness.”

“Choose happiness?” I retorted back to Source. “How in the world do I do that? This is catastrophic!”

I received a very clear answer. “You’ve got the wisdom, you know what to do, so FIGURE IT OUT.” I sat there dumbfounded.

“Okay, I know what to do. What are my tools?” I said to myself.

I centered myself to bring up an intention and brought out my CD, Dream a New Dream, because at least with headphones on the sounds wouldn’t be so distracting. I use Dream a New Dream almost daily and it takes me into an amazing state of joy. I enjoy being led through the guided meditation of unburdening, dismembering, and filling with the light of love.

I declared my intention to the universe: “What I want to manifest is for the logging to stop during the workshop and for the pristine sounds of nature to be the only sounds we hear during our stay.”

I sat down and listened to the CD. When it came to the part of envisioning my desired dream using all of my senses, I went into the feeling of love; how much I love wood products: my house, my decks, paper, neighborhoods, cities, and all the things that are made from wood. I felt the joy of walking around my house and feeling my wood floors and how much I enjoy their aesthetic beauty, listening to people walk in and say, “Wow this is beautiful.” Going out on my decks and enjoying their expansive connection to outdoor living in which I thrive.

This went on for several minutes, as I invested my whole, sensual self in the experience. Then I moved into awareness of the loggers. These men must feel great joy bringing home a paycheck to their family; putting food on the table, shoes on their children’s feet, and clothes on their backs. They are providing for their family, which usually fills a man with joy. I moved into these feelings and felt confident, happy, successful, and sensed the male bonding that many of them might experience.

I was glowing by the time the CD ended and was completely present to the environment. I used the sound of the chain saws as a meditative tool to hold presence and journey through the rest of the day. I sang songs and was completely in tune with love. I felt wonderful because I chose happiness despite the situation, even though an hour ago I termed the situation catastrophic.

The clear-cutting sounds that started at 6:30 am the next day had diminished by about fifty percent, but the sound was horrifically distressing to the now arriving participants. As they gathered, I shared my good message about my experience and I told them what I wanted them to do. Think positively and concentrate on the wonderful qualities of wood products.  Everyone participated in a great way and smiles and happiness where the result.

The following day the workshop began. There was still some logging operation noise, but it was minimal. I stood up to do an invocation to the spirits and the chain saws stopped, the trucks stopped, and the logging site became deserted. We all stared at each other in amazement. The silence was LOUD and made a clear statement of my desired deliberate manifestation.

Later in the day, when I had time to meditate and pray about this, I asked Source, “How did this happen?” The answer I received was, “You became the vibration of what you wanted to attract. You wanted joy in camp, you wanted peace in camp; you had to become those things to attract it.”

If I had stayed emotionally and vibrationally where I originally started — scared, angry, and worried — I would have created the situation to stay dismal. If people arriving had tapped into that and added to it, the result would have been harmful to the workshop. Emotional havoc creates emotional trauma, and creates physical difficulties.

“Anti” energy is an angry, frustrated, livid, fearful, and aggressive vibrational broadcast. The feeling might seem to make a difference for a moment, but the problem will usually pop up in some other form. Anti energy doesn’t work according to the laws of attraction. If you want to be an activist, be an activist of the LIGHT. Dream your new dream of reality and then be a match for it vibrationally by being enthused, motivated, excited, appreciative, passionate, and happy. Spend time in altered reality envisioning your dream by engaging all of your senses. Create it in the unmanifest with detail and then FEEL so excited about this creation that it easily is drawn to you through the power of the law. If you do your part, this will happen.

Losing focus to this process commonly takes three forms.

1) A person feels too inadequate to make a difference.

2) A person focuses on what others are doing or not doing to help. The comparing is the problem, not what people are doing.

3) A person feels despair with this information, reviewing past behaviors, feeling guilty, unworthy, or depressed. These are low frequency broadcasts that just add to the problem. The moment is NOW. Make decisions for you to heal, to feel better, and to create a new reality.

If you choose these responses, you are no further along than where you started. Don’t look at the problem in all its totality, but bring your focus back to yourself and say, “How can I affect my world in my home or my office?”  Start on a smaller scale. It all works and it all makes a difference.  The REAL difference you can make in the world is HEALING YOURSELF.  Once that happens, you affect the whole in a positive way.

This experience made a profound difference in my thinking and believing. I believe that this teaching from the spirits was for us all; this experience is a microcosm of how to deal with life. With the media broadcasting devastation at catastrophic conditions and the job market being what it is, you are bombarded with your own personal “chainsaws.” Can you dream a new dream for yourself and then hold the vibration of joy to bring this new reality into manifestation? If the answer is YES to this question, you control your reality and your life situations will change.

The Occupy Movement

The Occupy Movement by Jan Engels-Smith

The Occupy movement

The Occupy Movement is impressive in its scope and in the numbers involved in demonstration, but I believe its greater power lies in its ability to elevate our individual consciousness and to create inner reflection on who we are and what we may become. The events that are playing out serve best to teach us to stay present to our own feelings and to understand how our inner thoughts are contributing to this cause. What we do externally matters, but the feelings we hold internally have the greater power to either promote or harm this cause.

The focus on external action is the natural consequence of social movements, but it is the alteration and enhancement of our inner beings that ultimately provides the impetus for the powerful shifts in humankind’s existence. An individual thought, an altered awareness of one’s surroundings, or an adjustment in attitude may ripple through the entire cosmos to create monumental changes in the universe. Something as simple as a random act of kindness or the appreciation of a sunset can create support for the movement, just as an argument or a cruel act can contribute negatively to the cause.

As the spirits have taught me, appreciation is a pre-creative emotion. Appreciate everything without judgment or evaluation; embrace within the love you would want the entire world to hold; and become the enlightened being that changes all that it touches. That which becomes real within us, becomes the reality of the universe. The Occupy Movement is symptomatic of the pent-up desires of humankind for a fundamental change in the conditions of our existence. To truly promote it and give it full life, it must be fed with the nourishment of the higher frequency energies of our souls and the power that lies within our inner selves. As we become, the world becomes.

Soul Loss from Codependency

Soul loss from codependency by Jan Engels-Smith

Soul Loss From Codependency

 

Another form of soul loss happens in relationships built on codependency, in which one person bases his or her worth in another person rather than in self. This is a false love that can create soul loss on both sides. True love augments the soul and is most present when the soul is whole.

Soul loss creates a fragmentation of one’s wholeness. Consequently, a person continually tries to fill the voids caused by the fragmentation. Addictive behaviors are attempts at “fulfillment”. These may include overt behaviors associated with drugs, alcohol, sex, faulty relationships, or more subtle behaviors such as co-dependency or verbal communication styles.

Listen carefully to conversations. There is a definite exchange of energy occurring at all times. Questions about what you do for a living, how much money you make, what education you have, and where you live often establish a hierarchy of energy. There will be a winner and a loser in these conversations if the intention of the questions is to establish position. When positive energy flows, people recognize and pursue their interdependence. Interdependent behavior is evident in mutually supportive relationships in which individuals retain their personal power and self-worth. In such relationships, a person is not striving for worthiness from such external criteria as wealth or beauty, but rather from a powerful inner sense of worthiness. This worthiness creates wholeness.

It is important to understand that interdependence is not the same as dependence. In fact, soul loss is often the result of dependence. This is why children are so susceptible to theft of a soul part. However, many adults are also highly dependent on others and subject to resultant soul loss. The journey to restoration of the soul part requires the individual to first move from dependence to independence.

This movement from dependence to independence is accomplished by regaining one’s individual power. Many confuse this transition with being selfish. They have been taught for so long to give away their personal power to meet the needs of others that this transition can feel jolting. However, the acquisition of independence allows one to participate in the universe in a positive and personally powerful way. Once one’s independence is established, the individual is able to move from independence to interdependence, becoming a part of the wholeness of life without the loss of individual energy.

This movement from dependence to independence to interdependence is part of the larger universal shift to identifying with the web of life. The recognition that we are all part of one another enhances every individual’s personal power. We are capable of ending our personal fragmentation and the unnatural fragmentation we have created in the universe. We can have wholeness of person and wholeness of life.

DEPENDENCE —-> INDEPENDENCE —-> INTERDEPENDENCE

In highly interdependent societies, where the interdependence is recognized and appreciated, soul retrieval is a daily and accepted activity. The care of the soul is the first priority in health, both for the individual and for the society. In shamanic cultures, a soul retrieval is performed within three days after any major event in a person’s life. Traumatic or other dramatic changes, such as childbirth, marriage, death of a loved one, an accident, a broken relationship, an argument, to name a few, were addressed immediately by performing a soul retrieval. It was assumed that anyone going through such an event would have a high probability of soul loss, and in order to instill proper healing, the soul was attended to first.

Unfortunately, in our culture, years and years of fragmentation and soul loss can accumulate for an individual, which creates the potential for a soul to become critically fragmented. We can see the results of this by looking at the mental, emotional, and spiritual health of our society. We have a society that is depressed and self-medicating with illegal drugs, alcohol, and over-the-counter or prescribed medications. Our youths have difficulty finding purpose and meaning in their lives. Relationships and families fall apart with ever-increasing frequency. The culture is not grounded in taking care of the soul.

Support and Heal Japan

Support and Heal Japan by Jan Engels-Smith

If you are reading this message, I consider you part of the inclusive consciousness of LightSong, representing people as living celebrations of blissful communion among the enlightened masters, teachers, guides, angels, and power allies in non-ordinary reality who work with us so graciously.  In this difficult time in Japan and the aftermath of the Fukushima crisis, we are needed to offer support and healing.

There are particular people on the earth who serve very specific purposes in the greater scheme of the universe.  They are curative for others.  Their hearts and minds are open.  They have integrity and honesty. They are compassionate and humble.  Their light shines bright and they are interested in ever increasing their radiance.  They continue to self evaluate, learn, share and support.  Where they are present, there is brightness.  Humanity needs them to stimulate the changes and the evolution that is required for survival and progress.  These people can create miracles. They are not limited by what they see with ordinary vision. They hold the space in their bodies by holding a vibration of love and radiance no matter what is present in the outside environment. This vibration brings healing to the planet.  Spontaneous miracles occur throughout the world because of them.

These people believe in miracles and have the resources to apply direct divine action by employing their allies as well as their true selves to manifest desired outcomes. This magnetic belief is filled with inspiration, hope, divine action and joy. By employing prayer, 21st century shamanic techniques, and heart these higher vibrations become physical manifestations.

If you are reading this, you either are or can become one of these people. Please align with source energy, merge with your true self, bring forth your inner shamans and envision and heal Japan.  The perfect, seamless technology manifests to create a place that is healed, safe, honored, and rebuilt.  Her people unite and prosper.

The higher vibrations of envisioning and believing in this outcome bring it into manifestation.  Much of shamanism is what the spirits call for behind the scenes.  It does not necessarily require being on the front lines but it does require the fortitude to hold sacred space within yourself.

Let us unite and hold space. I know that mindful and heart centered endeavors will provide new channels and outlets for cutting edge, spirit-driven information to present to those that need that information to rebuild and restore their lands.  This sacred space will also provide miracles to manifest for the magnificent people of the magnificent land of Japan.

If you truly want to be of service, don’t drop into despair, fear, or worry, as these frequencies only create more of the same.  Break out of the old paradigm of powerlessness and be of divine service by envisioning and holding the frequency of knowingness in the availability and awesome outcomes of miracles.

As the founder of LightSong I reach out to you with this message and believe you are attracted to it.

We also have a wonderful blessing and meditation to share with you!

heal japan

 

This was created in thanks for the work our Ascension + class did with Fukushima. Much work was done to energetically support the transmutation, filtering and cleaning of the land, water, air, plants and also to support the emotional, spiritual energy of the people working in the power plant, the surrounding town and the physical power plant itself.

Emi Ishizeki of Japan did the speaking and MJ Schwader added the music. The image was also created by Emi Ishizeki.

A Prayer for the Water

A Prayer for the Water By Jan Engels-Smith

Prayer for the Water

 

There is always a theme that is revealed prior to the Level 2: Telepathic Practicum experience that LightSong sponsors each year. The theme is always different and completely appropriate for the corresponding group that is involved that particular year. Now after doing 30 practicums, I realize that there has been an overall teaching from the spirits that builds on each practicum. I personally notice a building of information through the themes that helps me understand what it means to be on the leading edge of 21st century shamanism. The theme of this story is a prayer for the water.

The themes manifest after months of journeying, praying, and watching for signs. Spiritual growth, awareness, and authentic wellness have dominated the last few years in the themes that have expressed. Predominately about how to obtain happiness and how to stay in this higher vibration of wellness, which will then translate into a heather (happier) world.

Challenges or teachings occur each year that the support camp takes on that I believe are microcosms for the world. We use techniques and experiences to master our lives in this contained environment, knowing that what we become skilled at during the practicum is a template for the world at large. If we can achieve it there, it becomes part of the mass consciousness that others can then tap into.

The theme one year emerged around water. There were several examples of the power of water that became evident. The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico was the news that filled media broadcasts and surrounded me with information.

The rain that we experienced in Portland that spring was record-breaking and relentlessly grabbed my attention each day. The Trask River, where the Practicum was held, has a huge voice in the multiple journeys that my assistants take in preparation. Even though I knew it was too early to in the year to say with absolute conviction, I presumed that the theme would be about this most precious liquid.

My experience is that water is a reflector, a mirror for our emotions and thoughts. In journeys to water years ago, the spirit of water told me that there were two things on the planet that were created without any agendas or predisposed signatures. They are water and clear quartz crystals. Both of these substances are completely programmable and will “broadcast” the program that is laid into them. Since the water is a mirror for our thoughts or feelings, it is a form of broadcast out into the environment that shows us either how pure or contaminated our thinking or feelings are.

Dr. Masaru Emoto, a Japanese scientist, has documented countless studies on the subject of water and how it is affected by our thoughts and vibrations, and has become a primary source of this leading edge information. I have written several newsletters on the topic of the importance of personal vibration and positive, intentional manifestation. It is a topic that I think about all day long. What are our thoughts and feelings creating in the world at large?

The Gulf spill seemed to tax even the most spiritually inclined and took them into the lower depths of anguish, fear, and powerlessness. However, my experience with spirit has shown me that there is no problem that exists that is presented without some sort of available immense growth. To become aware of the growth or the solution means that you must be the vibration of the solution. Sometimes a difficult truth to swallow; however, it is true. Please refer to my newsletter from March 2009, Choose Happiness in Difficult Times for more information on the topic

Another thing that I consistently think about is the layers of reality and what is hidden in the bigger picture of a given situation. The first layer is that there was oil spilling into water, but objectifying the problem by personally moving away from it enables a magnification of other realities that may be in motion.

What is oil? I remember the message from Terry Kem, a council member and one of LightSong’s Associate Teachers, when he was merged with a Spirit Being from below the earth. This spirit said that a whole world exists below the earth. I am not speaking of lower world, but a group of spirits that live below the earth and are part of the earth, but are not surface dwellers like we are. Oil is one of those groups that live beneath the earth, and oil has a spirit; it was created from the remains of millions of animals and plants that existed long ago, our ancestors of the early earth, before humans. They are giving a strong voice to a message. They are placing that message in the water, our sustenance, and getting us to pay closer attention.

Unfortunately, many humans missed this important message because they were outraged, blaming, and screaming. And if they were not overtly livid, they drowned in despair, heartache, and powerlessness. Neither of these two reactions benefitted the solution. These lower frequency vibrational emotions and thoughts about the cause only foster more of the problem. Many people desire to know what to do, but are perplexed with the enormous amount of death they were faced with in the ocean.

Dr. Masaru Emoto’s broadcasted prayer for this situation is very simple, yet extremely powerful.

“To the water, whales, dolphins, pelicans, fishes, shellfishes, planktons, corals, algae, and all creatures in our Gulf of Mexico, I apologize. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you. Amen.”
– Dr. Masaru Emoto

We can pray this prayer daily and forever, long after the oil spill occurred. And we can change the focus of the prayer to fit any type of situation. This prayer reveals a style of prayer that is not judgmental but yet accountable. Emoto’s message is to pray without worry, blame or judgment: To pray with love and humbleness. It addresses all life as being valuable and that each of us can make a difference regardless of what others are doing. I encourage all of us to say a prayer like this countless times a day, adding positive, emotional, grateful, and authentic feelings to what ever you are praying about. And we can change the focus of the prayer to fit any type of situation.

We are the creator beings of this planet. EACH ONE of us makes a difference! YOU can help with the ongoing healing of anything. Where two or more are gathered, there is an exponential amount of energy gathered and sent.

Remember that there is always a greater message and teaching in every situation. Being on the leading edge means to not get caught in the everyday drama and hype about what is “wrong” in the world. A bigger perspective or a spiritual growth perceptive can reveal that the oil is not the enemy. These ancestors have been helping us survive, warm ourselves, and flourish for decades. See beyond the “disaster” and look at the bigger picture. There are no accidents. What are the messages that are being given from these two mighty forces, the water and oil? Journey, pray, and meditate on this. The answers and solutions will surface as we stay in the vibration that allows them to manifest.

These are the teaching of the leading edge in 21st century shamanism. The healer must be the vibration of the solution or the heeded situation not the vibration of the problem.

We are changing the world, and it is moving forward in a glorious way.

Love Channeled

Love Channeled by Jan Engels-Smith

love channeled

 

This information came in for a client during a channeling session that is generalized for the public.  It was profound and beautiful and I want to share it.  Read this as if the spirits are speaking to you directly.

The greatest gift you can bring to humanity is to heal yourself.   With that, everything else comes into alignment.  All of you have come from varied histories, some excruciating. You are here to move beyond your history and into a good place.  Healing takes courage, and self-evaluation, which in turn changes the evolution of humanity.  We are not single people enduring doing individual work even though it may feel like it.  We encourage you to continue with your training and your practice, probe deeply into your self, and learn tools and techniques to enhance the process.

Interacting with others is vital in this process. Don’t try to fix others to prove your worth. Don’t use your own energy during interactions, just be present.  Events will appear continuously that will deplete you if you are giving over too much of your power and trying to suck in the needs that you need, which is always the need to be loved or recognized.

But when you stand in balance, using the true self as your resource you will be energized and not depleted. Use the true self as your container.  The true self holds all the love that it needs from an understanding of how loved you are.  You can do anything and not become exhausted from it.

Do events because you enjoy them. Know in your heart, and know in your being that you are adding value to the whole.  No one can harm you; even if your life is taken from you. No one can harm you.  When you stand in love you are eternally protected on all dimensional levels. Love is what it is all about. Love is the answer. To understand this at the deepest level is the quest of the soul and what humanity is based in.  Individuals at certain levels of their evolution ponder these concepts and ponder questions about their life.  However, you do not have to come up with the answers.

What we hope for you is that you will choose to have joy in your life and to know internally that everything that you are doing is valued.  Do you understand? Move into Eagle vision- the bigger picture. See things in multilevel.  Remind yourself to tap into this energy regularly.

Continue with training and make a list of what you like about yourself.

  • How do you see your life as being successful?
  • Who do you want to be for the rest of your life on the planet in this incarnation?
  • How do you want to be seen?
  • How do you want to be remembered?

Do this and you will shine for you are great love and you are an expression of this.

The Intention of Listening

I spend my day listening to people: listening for underlying patterns in the issues they are presenting; listening for word usage and how that can relate to belief systems; listening for signs of karmic related issues; listening to the spirits as they inform me as I listen to my clients. When I listen, I am concentrated and focused.

My father was a detective and I feel that those observational qualities of listening and watching were passed down to me in both genetic and environmental ways. We would do a mystery game in the paper each day. Dad would read the article and teach me how to put the clues together, like working a giant jigsaw puzzle in my mind. What did I hear, where are the clues, what is not being identified that needs to be investigated? I do this constantly throughout the day and I am doing it now as I write these blogs.

When I think of my last post, where else have I heard and observed the concept of “SINGING”? I am not speaking of the obvious, but the conceptual. In the movieAustralia, the little boy, often used the phrase, “I will sing you to me” or “I have sung you to me.” It was a sacred way of communicating where energetically the boy would focus his attention and intention to make contact with whomever he was focused on. From people, animals, or heart desires, he would sing them to him, a form of telepathic communication manifestation that had no space or time limitations. As I mentioned in my previous blog this same communication can be done for yourself, singing yourself back to you.

All I Want to Do, Is Dream…

The spirits see us as unlimited in what we can actually do to achieve wellness, happiness and health. The limits we feel are the limits that we create and then lock into our consciousness and subconscious. These limits often show up in our dreams. Taking our power back in the dream state leads to wellness in the “awakened” state of consciousness.

I often hear people be frustrated when they can’t remember their dreams. They feel as if they are not “up to par” or they are deficient in some way as a dreamer. Again this is a projection of our Western culture, that says you are “less than.” From a shamanic perspective there is a dismemberment that happens to the psyche in a dream. Dismemberment is a shamanic term that means to take someone or something apart so that it can REMEMBER its truth.

Human beings are naturally divine, capable, creator beings on the planet. However they forget this truth and go through life acting limited and unable. One of the dismemberment phases of dreaming is the dismemberment of these limitations and the ability to REMEMBER the power and the abilities that you actually have and are willing to take in to the dream time.

Shamanically speaking when a person has no memory of their dream, and sleeps soundly and deeply, it is because they completely dismember and go back into the light of creation. They rest there and they have the ability to reassimilate completely ANEW. However what most people do in the reassimilation process of reentry into their body is they put themselves back together exactly as they were before. They don’t take advantage of the power they hold to reassimilate healthy, or different. Shamanically speaking each slumber allows you to go back into creation and change what isn’t working for you. So instead of being deficient because you didn’t remember your dreams you were given the opportunity to return to the divine and be at peace. It is a beautiful state of deep reconnection.

Merging With Your True Self Before Sleep

In my Level II class this month I gave the assignment of merging with the true self just before going to sleep. The true self is the actualized potential of each person in this lifetime, the perfect you that has never experienced hardships, wounds, or misfortune of any kind. It is the blueprint and actualized being of who you were to be in thisincarnation: healthy, vibrant, loving, brilliant and wise. My idea for the assignment was that if you took the time to move into this energy just before you went to sleep you will carry this energy into your dreams or into the light if you travel that far. The likelihood of staying more conscious of this magnificence could greatly increase, thus empowering you to a greater extent.

The more the realization that you are given daily opportunities through the death and rebirth cycles of night into morning to rid yourself of burdens, deficits, illness, or hardship, the more the realization is understood and internalized that life is working for you not against you. These systems have existed from the beginning of time to help humanity. All of the negative projections that we place on life are just that — negative projections. They come out of our own egoic creation of suffering and then they control all of our thoughts, distorting the truth of our own power and abilities to create ourselves.

If you would like a meditation to help you merge with your true self, I have a CD for just this purpose. Go here for more information.

Heart to heart,

Jan

Bring Your Dreams to a New End!

By Jan Engels-Smith

Bring Your Dreams to a New End!

 

The spirits say to always bring your dreams to a good end. I first learned this in a shamanic dream class. We wore dream robes at night that were imbued with our own shamanic dream symbols. Going to bed was a ritual in itself, with pure intent to dream and heal in the dreaming process. This workshop was several years ago and my own spiritual allies have expanded on this teaching that I would like to share with you.

When you wake in the morning, get in the habit of reviewing your dreams. Not analyzing; analyzing is a western style, it is not shamanic. Notice what you liked about the dream or what you didn’t like. Where did you feel scared, dis-empowered, incapable, or insecure in your dream? Return into the dream from a more conscious state. You can do this through imagery, imagination, or intention. Change the dream in any way that you wish to bring it to a good end.

The dream state allows us to be magical and creative. It doesn’t follow the rules of ordinary consciousness. We can fly; have super powers, or super strengths. Anything is possible. Use this limitless template to redesign your dream. This course of action commands that you will become empowered, capable, and secure. As time goes on and this habit of review becomes imbedded with your subconscious, you will find that the ability to change your dream and bring it to a good end will happen automatically in the dream state. You won’t even wake up, but you will take charge of your life experience while dreaming.

The spirits have repeatedly said that as you empower yourself in the dream state, you will empower yourself in the waking state. And then they fondly remind me, “Life is all a dream anyway.” Everything is a dream from the spirits’ perspective and each lifetime that we incarnate is a dream.

We give ourselves permission to be powerful in a dream because we tend to think it is unreal, and we can break the physical laws that limit us. But the spirits say this is inaccurate. We can be limitless in the waking reality just as easily as the sleep reality by bringing each day, or each moment, to a good end. The dreaming exercise is great practice where it feels safe, easy and possible. As you feel comfortable with this process, you will begin to use it in more dramatic ways during the day. You can literally change the outcome of your life by bringing each day to a good end through the same review process. But the magic of this doesn’t stop here. The spirits also direct me to heal other lifetimes of people through similar methods.

Shamanic journeys allow people to energetically travel to any moment in time and take a look at what is happening, what happened and what will happen. A shamanic perspective is that all lifetimes are happening simultaneously, not on a linear time line of past, present, or future. A person may be blocked, stuck, or limited in this lifetime because of something that is happening, happened, or will happen in another lifetime. By journeying to this other lifetime and “bringing it to a good end” or changing it, the effects will be noticed in this lifetime. I find this method to be profound and effective.

The spirits see us as unlimited in what we can actually do to achieve wellness, happiness, and health. The limits we feel are the limits that we create and then lock into our consciousness and subconscious. These limits often show up in our dreams. Taking our power back in the dream state leads to wellness in the “awakened” state of consciousness.

I welcome your comments as you try this method of empowerment out!

Have fun!
