When we refuse to acknowledge our shadow at work, especially when particularly dense feelings and thoughts come to surface, we end up projecting those feelings and thoughts onto others - blaming them for the situations that we find ourselves in and for the ways in which we are fairing.View full article →
Three Questions to Ask Yourself During Ascension Times
We are living in ascension times, amidst a global awakening, and we are evolving.
We are evolving as a human collective, by way of evolving as individuated aspects of that collective.
We are shifting out of denser frequencies into light bodies, in a natural process that is beyond our control.
All we need to do is clear the path for the light to come in. Something these three questions are designed to help you do.
Question #1: Where am I on my ascension journey?
Whether you’ve been actively participating in it or not, you’ve been ascending as you move through life and the experiences herein.
That’s because you were designed to ascend.
As a light being, your purpose is to move closer towards the truest expression of your highest self - to unify as one with your higher purpose. This is the process of ascension.
As you move through life, experiences emerge as stepping stones on your path towards authenticity and enlightenment.
These experiences serve as lessons from which you may learn more about yourself, your current state of being and the next step.
How you embrace these lessons - with openness or resistance - is a sign of where you are on your ascension journey.
Question #2: What belief systems got me here?
When you embrace life’s lessons with openness, you move more freely towards alignment with your greatest self. When you embrace them with resistance, you move in opposition to that which will be.
In both instances, you continue to move forward and onwards. In the former, you do so with ease and in the latter you do so in struggle.
The ride is always moving in the same direction, your free will merely determine how you experience the bumps in the road.
Your free will is directly impacted by your beliefs, and those beliefs are directly impacting your perceptions - and therefore your actions.
Essentially, you move in unison with what you believe to be truth, making choices and honouring perceptions that align with those beliefs.
In this way, your beliefs fuel your ability to either open up to or resist life’s lessons. This is why questioning your beliefs is important.
Question #3: What belief systems did I release to get to where I am?
If you find that some of your beliefs are the cause of a journey embarked in struggle, and you decide to amplify joy in your life, you may choose to shift or release those beliefs.
Most of our belief systems are hand-me-downs from our parents, teachers, schoolmates and the media (including music, movies, the news and so much more).
Like sponges, we absorbed beliefs from all around us as we moved from infancy to adulthood.
Along the way, we released some belief systems to make way for others. Whether it was releasing our parents beliefs to make way for those of our peers, or releasing the beliefs of our peers to make room for those of our partners, and so on, we’ve been swapping out beliefs for beliefs our entire life.
When you consider it, you’ve probably released and accumulated many beliefs over the course of your life - some that serve your flourishing and others that impede it.
The beliefs that you are able to release over the course of your life serve as a testament to your self-sovereignty. The process of being able to release beliefs is a reminder that you have dominion over them.
This process also serves as a reminder of what you are capable of. If you were able to release beliefs in the past, then surely you’re able to do so again should you need to.
And if you can release beliefs at will, then you can adopt them in this same manner as well.
In some instances, you may even find that you’ve buried a belief that serves your process well, and in its place you’ve adopted one that does not.
It’s never too late to change your mind!
Whether you are consciously aware of it or not, releasing/integrating beliefs is always an act of will - a choice.
Buried within the depths of your sub-conscious, there is a knowing that exists beyond belief.
This knowing is what pulls you forward on your ascension journey. It’s the divine part of you that knows there is no other destination.
Within the conscious mind, though, we adopt beliefs that have the power to either accelerate our process and infuse it with joy, or decelerate our progress and encourage suffering.
When we can authentically identify where we are on our ascension journey, alongside the beliefs that we released/integrated to get here, we gain sovereignty over those beliefs and our life journey.
In this way, we shift the ways in which we experience life, and eventually the life itself.
CRYSTAL PERSCRIPTION: Clearing away the old, in order to make room for the new, is a powerful practice that Selenite can support you with.
Selenite is a powerful stone with a tender nature, serving as a reminder of just how delicate strength can be.
A crown and upper chakra stone with a fine vibration, this magical crystal instills deep peace within and all around us with its clearing properties.
From this place of bliss and enhanced clarity, we are granted access to enhanced telepathy, angelic consciousness, higher guidance and our light body.
Selenite carries within it the imprint of all that’s happened in the world, and is designed to bring to surface all that needs resolving in it. In this doing, it encourages us to make use of the divine guidance it links us with, in service of others.
You can work with Selenite to clear your home, body and other crystals. We keep a large piece alongside our Quartz Crystal Singing bowl, working with both to cleanse our space and every item that leaves our shop!
You can also work with it to tap into higher levels of consciousness - ie. meditate with a piece of Selenite resting on the top of your head or keep it nearby when assessing problems and solutions - and also for assessing old problems with newfound wisdom and inspiration.

I grew up in a religious family. Prayer has been a part of my life from a young age, even when I didn’t understand it.
The church felt like a box to me. As I got older, I stopped going and I also stopped praying.
It wasn’t until I embarked on my Shamanic journey that prayer re-entered my life. That was when I finally starting understanding it and the power that it possesses.
Prayer is infused into every aspect of Shamanism.
As I began to learn about Shamanism and started to live a more Shamanistic way of life, I began to witness prayer from a different perspective than the one I grew up with, and my relationship with it began to deepen.
I learned that through prayer we could accomplish so much more than we can through control. I learned that we are surrounded by Divine Assistance and that all we need to do is ask for that assistance, and also that prayer was one of the most powerful ways to do that.
Asking in this manner, for Divine Guidance and Support, is the true purpose of prayer.
I have experienced countless miracles in my life through the sacredness of prayer. I have received guidance and been supported through the magic of prayer.
Prayer is a truly powerful process that can serve to benefit each and all of us, personally and as a collective.
Now more than ever, prayer can serve to unite and support us, as we move away from the old ways of being and into New Earth.
The power of our prayers can shift our conscious reality at a molecular level.
Whether you're praying to a Higher Power, Creator, Universe or God, or to your Higher Self, Great Spirit, Mother Gaia or Father Sky, your prayers are needed.
Maybe your form of prayer is a meditative process in which you’re simply entering a state of presence and peace. Your prayers are also needed.
Perhaps your form of prayer is to a specific deity, or your practice is that of insightful devotion from which you draw a way of being. Your prayers too, are needed.
Regardless of who or what you’re praying to, the most important aspect of prayer is the intention behind it and the faith that you have in it.
When I was younger, prayer seemed robotic, or was used in a manner that served the ego of those I witnessed performing it. Used in this manner, it’s easy to understand why so many of us have turned our backs on it.
Without intention, the essence of prayer cannot be present in our lives, no matter the postures or words that we express. And without gratitude, we cannot receive what we are inviting through prayer.
When we pray from a place of need, it is an expression of lack. When we pray, knowing that our prayers will be heard and answered, it is an expression of abundance. Praying from a space of abundance is where the miracle begins.
Having faith that our prayers are also our will, we move into a state of gratitude and our call is heard.
Be in your heart when you pray. Feel the joy of having received the answer to the question you’re asking, of having received the outcome you're seeking. This is gratitude.
Today, I’m inviting you to join me in prayer. To set your intentions on collapsing lower vibrational timelines, separation programs, limiting thoughts, emotions and traumas that no longer serve you or us. Today, I’m inviting you to pray for the best possible outcome for the Highest Good of all.
Pray with me, for purification of the collective grief, shame and guilt that has plagued us for thousands of years. Pray for us to rise up.
Pray with me, for those who are fighting and perpetuating old and outdated paradigms. Pray for them to join in.
Pray and we shall receive.
I pray for the ascension of humanity. I pray for the abolishment of all separation programs, and for the unity of all beings. I ask for the dark forces to be exposed and I pray for all who are exposing them, for their protection and their safety. I send them love and strength.

Over the past few months, our political, social and emotional climate has been unsettling, explosive and intense to say the least.
It may feel, in many respects, that society has been straying from a sense of normalcy and that is in fact true. From a spiritual understanding and astrological perspective, these seemingly chaotic and uncertain times are actually a grand awakening.
We are currently in the process of unveiling the many shadow aspects of our human psyche so that we may know and heal them, as we move into a more unified reality and what some are referring to as Unity Consciousness, the 5D and beyond - read more about what that ascended state of being feels like here.
June, like the many months that came before it, continues to beckon us into our power so that we may defend our rights as sovereign beings that make up a collective human race. We’re being invited, more than ever to take a stand for something greater that our personal gain and to speak our truth in the face of public and political shaming, on a journey of embodiment.
Now more than ever, we must be the change that we wish to see.
Knowing this can make all the difference in the world. Resistance is futile and will only cause more pain, grounding us in a timeline and reality that no longer serves our higher self or the greatest good for all.
Surrender to the wave of all that is taking place within and around you, and remain fixed on the vision. We are bearing witness to and participating in an evolutionary shift like no other.
The Full Moon Lunar eclipse that took place on June 5th opened a portal for release, ascension and alignment with the greater truth, asserting that the past is indeed behind us and that it’s time to write a new story, engage with new belief systems and seize a new collective reality.
Yesterday, Mercury stationed retrograde in Cancer, making space for the planning that’s required to step into our new timeline.
This particular Mercury retrograde is inviting us to stop and listen, and also to feel into our communications. By feeling into our words, we’re given the opportunity to align our hearts with our minds and keep only that which serves both.
On June 21st, we reach the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer, and bear witness to yet another big agent of cosmic change.
Eclipses are pivot points that serve to motion us forward. They propel us into action and shift our direction as if by divine will.
The New Moon and the Sun, together in Cancer, point to a time where we become more in tune with the watery depths of our emotions and that which brings us a sense of belonging and inner peace.
Creativity is a focal point of this Solar Eclipse, urging us to actively express the rainbow of emotions inside of us, and to alchemize them. Now is a great opportunity to cleanse, clear and honour our physical, mental and emotional bodies through dance, writing, painting, drawing, making music and any other form of expression that calls forth.
The New Moon this Sunday amplifies these energies tenfold.
As June comes to a wind, Venus stations direct in Gemini and Mars moves into Aries, offering us a spark of momentum for creative projects and an energetic shift in atmosphere. Our energy levels will balance out and so too will our ability to socialize, communicate, connect and collaborate with others.

We have been suppressed and oppressed for thousands of years.
There is generations and generations of ancestral trauma that many of us are healing from right now. These are old programs and in order to ascend them and the timelines they belong to, the ego which is 3D needs to dissolve. The 3D reality is based on polarity, separation and fear.
We are all moving through this process, in varying ways, until we reach the Fifth Dimension. Once we reach and move beyond 5D, we are strong and also strong enough to hold and bring the vibration up for the collective.
As we hold the frequency of 5D and beyond, we raise the frequency of those around us through The Law of Resonance and we activate higher dimension codes in them. The Law of Resonance states that two things in close proximity will begin to resonate at the highest level of frequency amongst the two.
If the souls around you are not ready to rise, for whatever reason, they will shift out of our life.
In 5D-12D we are awakened to our multi-dimensional self. Everything is in Divine Love and Flow and we are operating from our Highest Aspect of Self. In the 5D-12D world we are in alignment with the Divine aspect within us all. Choices are not made based on wounds and traumas, because wounds and traumas have all dissolved.
In the 5D-12D reality, you are not acting out of habit or operating in a pattern, you are acting and operating from FREE WILL.
The keys to ascension are held within the Heart Chakra. This is what the Shamanic path teaches us - how to heal in order to release separation and leave division consciousness behind, so that we may come into True Unity and Divine Love.
THAT IS WHY they want us all fighting, judging and blaming. When we are divided, we are closed off in our Heart Chakras.
When you open up your Heart Chakra, you will purify and heal all the wounds of the past through the power of forgiveness. You will heal and ascend your ancestral lineage, you will release the 3D agreements from all of your life times and you will wake up to and know the manipulation and darkness that fell on the planet for thousands of years.
Through the power of compassion and understanding, and from a higher perspective, you will release judgement and attachment to the outcomes in your life and you will surrender to the ever-changing and great unfolding of the now.
Through the power of the open and activated Heart Chakra, you will stand in your power and speak your truth. You will be sovereign and know that you are the creator of your experience.
In 5D-12D, all of your DNA strands are fully activated and you are living your Divine Blueprint. The lessons you learn exist in higher levels of knowledge, art, dance and music, and so that you may express your unique gifts with the world.
In 5D-12D, you are free to experience life in its fullest expression.
Trust in the Divine unfolding of your path and in the journey that you have chosen. Focus only on the outcome that you want.
Be grateful to all the teachers and remember that everyone in your life is serving a purpose towards your souls growth and evolution.
Be patient with yourself, and stand in and speak your truth.
Those who stay with you are meant to travel with you. Trust that what or whoever falls away from your life, does so in service to your Highest Self and the Highest Good of all.

Shungite is an ancient stone that contains all the elements of the periodic table in its composition. It's believed to be almost two billion years old.
Shungite formed long before there was life on earth, deep within the earths crust. It carries within it valuable downloads about the earth's evolutionary process.
Shungite is composed of mostly carbon, which is the universal building block for life as we know it. In 1996 it was discovered that Shungite is the only known natural mineral to contain fullerenes, a crystalline form of carbon and powerhouse antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals.
Fullerenes are anti-everything harmful to us, including viruses, bacteria, fungus, pathogens, fluoride, chlorine and so much more, and they are only found in Shungite.
The main deposit of Shungite on earth comes from Zazhoginskoye near Lake Omega in the Shunga region of Karelia, North West of Russia and that's where we get ours.

What appears to be “devastation”, is actually an opening, a grand opportunity to illumine and reform our perspectives, and to physically anchor in new structures that represent tangible spiritual progress for humankind. The Pluto-Saturn conjunction is helping us to realize, now more than ever, just how vital we are to one another. The truth of interconnectedness is emerging - not only is our wealth dependent on others, but so to is our health.

Mercury Retrograde can be chaotic but there are ways to move through this period with grace and come out wiser and stronger on the other side.
Retrograde is when a planet moves in the opposite direction than it normally does around the sun. Mercury is the fastest moving planet in our solar system, so it moves in retrograde more frequently than the other planets do. Astrologically, Mercury is the ruler of analytical thinking, communication, information organization, and idea expression. So, when it retrogrades these skills can be shaken up and challenged. Mercury moves in retrograde around 3-4 times per year for around 3-4 weeks, including the pre and post shadow periods.
When Mercury goes retrograde you may notice that your relationships seem less harmonious than usual. What used to be a simple dialogue between you and your partner, coworkers, or friends, can suddenly seem like a frustrating string of miscommunications and misunderstandings. Not to mention mishaps with postal delivery, text messages, e-mails, and business dealings.
During Mercury Retrograde periods you may experience:
The extraordinary thing about Mercury Rx is that you always seem to come out stronger and wiser on the other side. When Mercury goes direct again people tend to feel even better than they did going into Retro season. Similar to any tough period in our lives, there is always a silver lining – and for us spiritual folk we know that the destruction of one thing often leads to the birth of something even better than we could have imagined. So it is important to implement bigger picture thinking during this time, and to be patient with yourself and others. Although it can seem like a disaster, Mercury Rx provides us an exceptional time to tune into our emotional awareness and clear out old narratives that are no longer serving us.
Angelite is a soft blue stone that helps you to make sense of what you are feeling and put it into words. It is an excellent communication stone that opens you up to receiving messages from angels and spirit guides. It has a serene energy and can help you to understand and translate symbols that appear in your dreams and visions. It is an excellent stone for developing clairvoyance, establishing peace, and stepping into benevolence. Keep calm this Mercury Rx and find a way to release that which no longer serves you with Angelite.
Clear Quartz is a high vibrational purifier that will clear energy blockages and amplify the energy of other stones surrounding it. It is also a wonderful amplifier of personal intentions, whether for prosperity, health, or love. It can be a helpful crystal to work with for expanding your consciousness and opening your chakras. Clear Quartz heals the emotional body which anyone going through the heavy feels of Mercury Rx will be grateful for.
Kyanite is a high vibrational stone that creates very rapid transfers of energy, opening up psychic channels to activate the mind center. Luckily for those having trouble processing information during Retro season, Kyanite accentuates your mental capacity. AND WAIT FOR IT, helps with telepathic communication, especially if both parties are wearing it – HELLO every partnership needs kyanite through retro season!
Aquamarine is a cooling stone, helping to relieve stress, tension, and anger. It brings our awareness to whatever emotions we are feeling and helps us to express them clearly. Aquamarine activates your throat chakra, helping you to communicate from your most authentic self. It is a SOURCE connection stone, keeping you in rightful alignment with SPIRIT.
Shungite works vibrationally on the molecules and atoms in your body to free them from their bondage to negative patterns and energies. It is a conduit for spiritual light, safeguarding your aura, and protecting you from the psychic attack of your nay-sayers. During Retro season we can get down on ourselves for not performing at the same level of speed and efficiency that we are used to. Shungite aids in releasing feelings of doubt and self-sabotage, dispelling all forms of negativity. It rids us of unwanted emotions such as guilt, fear, and shame.
Selenite is the best stone to use for clearing your auric field of dirty energy. It cleanses away stagnant or stuck energy from your physical and etheric bodies. Selenite aligns your chakras and opens you up to guidance from higher realms, working to purify the upper chakras. It harmonizes well with other stones and is excellent for keeping anything near it clean energetically.
