Updates on We All Have Souls and Speaking

We All Have Souls and I Think We Can Prove It

As you may have noticed, I took a break from writing for a while. It wasn’t planned, but other parts of my work seemed like they needed to be done instead. I’m back.

This time I have a couple of announcements and a quick request. My intention for next time is to start a series of posts on connection. I want to look at connection from the perspectives of martial arts, Inca medicine work, and the Sidhe.

The first announcement is that We All Have Souls and I Think We Can Prove It is available. Continue reading and add your comment

What Stops Our Magic?

There are a lot of answers to what stops our magic. For this discussion let’s look at the magic we find in any practice that makes changes in our worlds and in ourselves. I include shamanism, witchcraft, conjure, martial arts, energy healing, and all the rest of the practices of soul reality in my definition of magic. Making changes on ourselves or on other parts of reality can be very difficult at any time. When our abilities are limited, it’s even harder.

Writers on this topic usually divide the ways we limit ourselves into two categories: fear and separation. Let’s take a look at each.

Several authors, including Mary Shutan, have written about the fear we feel. Mary discusses the question from a shamanic perspective. She looks at two kinds of fear: fear of death and fear of life.

Both kinds of fear make us reluctant to journey to scary places in soul reality and meet powerful beings. Continue reading and add your comment

Garden Slugs vs. Highest and Best Good

The question of highest and best good can be tricky in complex situations. And everything in the physical world tends to be tricky. I think about this when I have to choose between two ways of looking at highest and best good.

For example, slugs are invading my garden as I write this. When I ask the question of highest and best good for the system, what do I include? There’s me, of course. I want to include the plants and the food I’ll get from them. There are all the other animals and insects that are part of the garden ecology. And then there are the slugs.

Getting rid of the slugs is best for my garden and me, but probably not best for the slugs. For those of you who don’t know, slugs are migratory. In other words, if I move them away from the garden, there’s a good chance they will come back. They also hide really well Continue reading and add your comment

???ing the Haters

Last time I wrote about Ho’oponopono and asked for thoughts about how to use it in a confrontation about soul reality. Basic Ho’oponopono has four steps: “I’m sorry.” “Please forgive me.” “Thank you.” “I love you.”

I specifically asked what you would do if you were talking about your experiences and you ran into a “hater” who challenged you by saying, “There is no such thing as soul reality. Physical reality is all that there is.” How do you fill in the question marks in the title of this post? Continue reading and add your comment

Ho’oponopono, Hawaiian Reconciliation Practice

Ho’oponopono is a Huna practice to make thing right between two people or groups of people. I’m going to describe where the practice comes from and one way to do it. Then I’m going to ask you for your thoughts on applying it to one particular situation.

I will write up your ideas as the blog for two weeks from now. This is a contribution I’m asking you to give to the community of readers here on the We All Have Souls website.

Background Concepts

Huna is a way of living that comes from the Hawaiian Islands. I first read about Huna Continue reading and add your comment

We All Have Souls

Most people who travel in the non-ordinary ask themselves from time to time, “Is this real?” It’s especially true for those just starting to have non-ordinary encounters.

Our larger culture does not support the non-ordinary. So, we need to form a sub-culture that does. I believe that when the sub-culture gets to be about Continue reading and add your comment
