Reiki and Psychic Healing: A Comparative Essay NEW!
by Elige Stewart

There are many forms of energy healing available to the seeker. It’s easy to get confused wading through all of the choices for healing out there. This article addresses some of the different forms of healing you may find in search of a healing modality to suit your needs.  I’ve chosen to focus heavily on Reiki in the article, as this healing system is versatile, easy to learn, and is readily available in most communities.

Reiki is an attunement process system to broaden the channels of energy in a person’s body so that they may draw in more of the Universal Life Energy from around them to perform healing and healing attunements. Psychic Healing is the manipulation of a person’s energy field via the healer’s own energy field for the purpose of healing.  Doesn’t seem that different, does it?

Courageous Dreaming  
by Alberto Villoldo PhD

We are what we think. Everything we are arises from our thoughts. With our thinking we create the world. --Buddha

Whether you realize it or not, we are all dreaming the world into being. What we’re engaging in is not the sleeping dream we’re familiar with, but the waking dream we craft with our eyes open. When we’re unaware that we all share the power to co-create reality with the help of the Universe itself, that power slips away from us and our dream turns into a nightmare. We begin to feel we’re the victims of an unknown and frightening creation that we’re unable to influence or change. Events seem to control us and trap us. The only way to end this dreadful reality is to awaken to the fact that it, too, is a dream, and recognize our ability to write a better story, one that the Universe will work with us to manifest. The nature of the cosmos is such that whatever dream you have about yourself and the world will become reality.

What Is A Medicine Bag and How Do I Make Mine? 
by Shaman Elder Maggie Wahls

A medicine bag is an ancient item that spiritually represents the person who wears it. In 1991 the body of a man who lived over 5,000 years ago was found frozen in a high mountain range and with him was a medicine bag. The medicine bag is known in all cultures and through out all of history. They contain objects such as leaves, feathers, stones, herbs such as sweetgrass, sage, cedar, lavender or pinion, and other objects which have been added by the wearer and considered spiritually significant.

What Is A Power Song And Where Do I Get One?
by Shaman Elder Maggie Wahls

Power Songs are oral prayers expressing your true self, your nature, your individuality, your power. All cultures have power songs but you can have your own power song too. We think of the power in a hymn or an African chant, a Shamanic ceremony song or even in the howling of wolf. And there is definite power in sound.

African Spirits

For many people the idea of African medicine or traditional healing is shrouded in a haze of mystery and magical heathen rituals. In reality, what is involved is learning the secrets of an enormous variety of natural and medicinal plants and other natural processes that have undergone the test of time. Many generations have experienced the value of African remedies, both for medicinal and spiritual reasons.

Animal Spirit Guides and Totems   
by Lisa H.

Animal spirit totems can be viewed in different ways according to each of us as individual people. The basic principle of an animal totem is an animal spirit who gives us insight into ourselves, a glimpse of the divine powers at work in our world, and can transcend us to a place of healing for ourselves and other people.

Running Into Magic
by Larry Alboher


The day began with a routine morning jog and ended with my initiation into timeless mystery and mind-bending magic.

My esoteric teacher, Don Pablo, and I started to slowly circle the oval track of a northern Mexico spa. Don Pablo, as usual, encouraged me to bring the energy in my body down into my lower half and become fully grounded and connected to the earth. Months later I would truly learn what this connection felt like and why it was so important.

Healing Wombs: Maya Abdominal Massage
by Patricia Burke with Rosita Arvigo
 
Catherine arrived at the yoga studio looking weary and subdued. As she joined the circle and began to check in with the group, her story gently unfolded. She had been experiencing increasing digestive problems and discomfort, and awoke in the morning to discover that her uterus had prolapsed. The cervix was extending out through the vaginal opening. She felt as if she was carrying a bowl between her legs, and it was bearing down on all her organs of elimination. I was horrified for her.

On The Way: Health, Healing And Symptoms On The Shamanic Path
by Alexander Alich

We are all looking for our way. This is universal. For some, our search will take us into the field of Shamanism to find something for ourselves. Unfortunately many will come away with more questions than answers. In this article I will share a little about the Shamanic perspective of healing. I hope you will find some answers, understand more about what Shamanism is and what is possible for your health and growth.

Women Returning Home to Mother Earth
by Florence Gaia, RN, M.Ed.

Not far from the white topped peaks of the Continental Divide we walked round the bend of a wide grassy trail and stepped into the bright summer light of a Rocky Mountain meadow. My breath caught. The beautiful sight ahead took me to another time 150 years or more ago: grass as high as your hip, four tipis with strips of colored fabric fluttering from pole tops, a large council tipi in the north corner of the meadow, a small moon lodge tipi at the south end, and a big fire pit in the meadow's center. So began two extraordinary wondrous weeks 10 yrs. ago that would change my life forever.  Twenty-four women gathered together on a 8,000 acre Montana horse ranch surrounded by mountain wilderness on  to study and experience Native American spirituality and women's ritual with Brooke Medicine Eagle, a Native American Earth Wisdom teacher, from the Crow and Lakota tribes.

Plant Spirit Healing
by Sage Blue

In our back woods there is an old cedar grove. For many years, I would sit within the grove and talk to the cedars and to pray. One day I asked the cedar trees what they would like from me. The answer was immediate and clear: “Please give us pictures of all the other trees that we hear from, but have never seen”.

I made a mental image of twin cedars a half mile or so away and the cedar grove joyfully sent a message directly to its sisters. Whenever my students and I visit the grove, we meditate and send mental pictures of particular trees from around the world to the cedars. They (the cedars) now have a vast communication network that is accessible from my thoughts and prayers.

Shamanism as a Path of Service
Interview with Morwen Two Feathers

by Carol Bedrosian

CAROL: I understand that your primary interest is in creating a healing space for council around issues of cultural division and the propriety of sacred rites and rituals. My personal feeling is that it is very necessary for a bridge to be built at this time because our white culture is so shut off from our earth-centered roots and this is what has hastened our disregard for the planet and spirituality in general.

MORWEN: Absolutely. The gist of it all is that we live in a Christian, European-derived culture which is very out of touch with its earth-based roots. It is very interesting to me that white people are now embracing indigenous spiritual paths because, by and large, we are still subject to the conditioning of our childhood which told us that the European-based earth spirituality, which is Paganism and Witchcraft, is evil. People are still in such denial about this conditioning, yet at the same time they feel a pull towards earth-based religion. Because of this, I feel they are turning to the earth-centered paths which are not of our ancestors. But there's a special significance to the shamanic aspect of it. I am using shamanic in the generic sense of the direct contact with spirit...

Some Might Call Me A Shaman
by Trish Casimira

As a shamanic practitioner and a teacher of shamanism, I am often asked how one becomes a shaman and how, indeed, I became one. I was chosen.

My awakening occurred during an extraordinary week in my life when everywhere I turned, the subject of shamanism was present: It was the summer of 1993 and I had some healing work gifted to me by a college mate. She used crystals and Reiki, and as she worked on me she began to see things with her psychic awareness which were vivid and profound, but made no sense to her. She saw me floating in a cathedral-like place with a flame over my head.

The Shape of Things To Come: Shapeshifting With John Perkins  
An interview by Carol Bedrosian

For the past two decades John Perkins has visited, lived with and learned about indigenous culture from several tribes in the rainforests of the Amazon and Andes. In his three books detailing his experiences—The World Is As You Dream It, Psychonavigation and most recently, Shapeshifting (Destiny Books)—John has shared much of the wisdom he has learned from tribal people in hopes of creating a "dreamchange" that can move us away from the industrial world's dream of dominating and harnessing nature...

An Interview with Jimi Two Feathers /

JIMI: I don't think so. The question is native from where? Also, where do you think you are from and where do you feel connected to? I can say I am native to Cambridge, Massachusetts, because I've been here all my life...
