We All Have Souls

When we add four concepts about souls to the Western view of the world, we can explain almost everything that happens in physical and spiritual reality:

  • We all have souls.
  • Souls are divided into regions and each region performs a different function.
  • Beyond the four physical forces, there is a life force.
  • Souls use the life force to power themselves and connect with other souls.

When we learn to feel the souls that are in all of us — in everything — we escape from the illusion of isolation. Comments are appreciated.

Powering Your Wishes

There are many practices that bring spirituality into your life. If you are trying them but they are not helping, one reason might be that you aren’t giving them the life force they need to become real. Let’s look at how to solve that issue.

The most important aspect of any practice is to bring in enough life force — made up of energy and inspiration — to do the practice effectively. We can’t get this life force from the world around us. With all the problems in the world, there just isn’t enough life force here. And what is here is full of negativity. What we need to do is reach deep into the shamanic lower world to find clean energy. Then we reach high into the upper world to find inspiration.

Here’s a quick description of how to do that using the regions of your soul. Continue reading and add your comment

Cleaning Ancestral Lines

Yesterday I ran across a request for speakers from a group that does genealogical research. Normally I think that this really has nothing to do with my work. I do heal ancestral lines, but I don’t need to do the kind of careful research that most people interested in genealogy do.

My work is more like traveling back along the waves of trauma, finding the place that started the hurting, and reshaping the process to find wisdom from the hurt.

Of course, it’s not always a traumatic experience. About a month ago I had an encounter with an ancestor who wanted me to accept his bigotry as my own. I declined, but part of dealing with that wish was looking at why the ancestor felt the way he did and providing him with a less harmful perspective. Continue reading and add your comment

Dirt from the Graveyard

People who practice conjure go to graveyards to retrieve soil from graves. They believe that as the bodies decay, they release their wisdom into the surrounding earth. Over time the wisdom spreads throughout the graveyard. A person’s wisdom is strongest near his or her grave. Taking the soil and honoring it on a practitioner’s altar is a way to tap into the wisdom.

A few years ago, Orion Foxwood, who follows conjure practice, told me that there seems to be less wisdom available in the newer graves. He suggested this might be caused by better coffins Continue reading and add your comment

Solutions for The Divide in America

There are many ways to describe the divide in America — political, racial, economic. But most descriptions do not lead to solutions. I propose a way of looking at the divide that might help us come together again.

I suggest that the most important divide in America is the divide about sovereignty. Many still wish to be ruled by someone or something else, but more and more of us believe we have an absolute right to choose for ourselves. Personal sovereignty is important and healing. It’s the “absolute right” part that is causing problems.

This is part of a larger picture. There is a nearly universal consensus among people doing soul-related work: We are in a time of great change. The basic structure of our world will soon be different and humans need to change if they want to continue to exist. I agree with this. Continue reading and add your comment

The Fairies Took It? – No, They Didn’t!

Keys, watches, occasionally a wallet, small nails and screws when we are building something. And once, for me, my passport. Those who understand the Fey world often say, “The fairies took it.”

I’m writing today to let you know that it isn’t always the fairies. These things go away on their own. Continue reading and add your comment

Earth-Bound Wishes

We all bring wishes into this life.

Relationships, sexuality, money and other forms of power — these are important wishes. If we achieve all of these, is it enough?

I’m pretty sure the answer is no. These are our Earth-bound wishes. We have them because we are in a body. Between physical lives we have a completely different experience. Wishes from there are also part of who we truly are. We need to meet those wishes to be whole.

But, this post is not about abandoning our earth-bound wishes. Continue reading and add your comment

Curses of Slavery 5 — Notes about Healing America

This is part 5 of a healing I did. For more information about this kind of healing, please take a look the earlier post, “Curses of Slavery Overview.” In that post I describe the beings and concepts that were part of the healing and might be unfamiliar to you. If you start there, you’ll find links to the earlier parts of the healing.

The most important point is that we can’t fight evil in the present. We need to go back and clean up the past so the evil we are in dissolves. As this healing shows, dealing with evil in the past rescues lost souls and removes the curses that cause our battles today. When we remove past curses with love, we heal without causing more harm.

Before I even sat down I was getting messages from Woman. We’ll go through them again as we talk to make sure of what I heard.

I put on my angel protections, even though I don’t think I’ll need them. I call my allies, especially Light Tangler, the psychopomps, and the Norns. They are here with me as I get ready to go back to Woman.

Tom: Rider, are we ready?
Rider: Seems that way. The call is really loud tonight.
Tom: Do you think we need the circle?
Rider: I don’t think so. We can come back and get it if we do.
Tom: Yeah, this all seems pretty clear tonight.

So we ride to Woman. Continue reading and add your comment

Today before I start working with my khuyas, I ask for an Angel from the upper world to help with this curse removal. I usually don’t ask the names of angels from the upper world who help me. Having names seems to bring a lot of expectations for what the angel will do. Sometimes it’s enough to accept the help that is offered in the highest and best good of everyone who is part of the work. And then be able to handle surprises.

There are always surprises. Continue reading and add your comment

Well, it took longer than “tomorrow” for me to be ready to work on this again. It’s four days later and I’m still not sure I’m ready. We’ll try.

I put on my armor, call my helpers, remind myself again not to touch anything. I am supported by psychopomps, Light Tangler, two sets of khuyas from my personal mesa and my healing mesa, apus, Daddy Death, the Norns, and Grandfather Rock. Others are looking on and will help if we need it. I take time to work with my ñawis.

In soul reality I am in the center of my circle, standing at my crossroads. Hoocha Eater Khuya removes the hoocha from the inside of the circle. I close the circle to the outside.

Tom: Rider, can we take this circle and place it around Woman?
Rider: Carry it with us? Use it as protection? Maybe. We can try. We stand at the center, at the crossroads. Woman stands at her crossroads. We make them the same crossroads.
Tom: I can’t make it work.
Rider: Neither can I.
Tom: The best I can do is to put them side by side. That’s not what we need. I guess we’ll just have to go to her.

Rider takes us there. Continue reading and add your comment

It’s been two days since the last report. I admit that the thought of a billion curses was more than I could handle. But I woke up in the middle of the night with a plan.

I put on my armor. I gather my allies. I remind myself not to touch the curses. I call energy and information to help me with the healing.

Tom: Rider, please take me back.
Rider: Yes, glad to do it.

And we are there. Continue reading and add your comment
