    Turn Change into a Transformative Power

    Turn Change into a Transformative Power

    Change is one of the few aspects of life that we can count on with certainty. Yet often when change arrives at our doorstep, we do not seize the opportunity that lives within it of transformation. In this soulcast, offered are contemplative ways to work with these energies in your psyche and in your life from a psychospiritual perspective. When do we process our feelings surrounding change and how can we leverage them into a catalyst for transformation? Archetypal, meditative and shadow work contemplations are detailed so you can embody and deepen a wise relationship with these powerful forces at play in your life. Change is a doorway to profound transformation if we learn to open it.


    This 40 min. episode ends with a short, lovely meditation that can be done over and over again. 


    SHOW NOTES 


    “ There is nothing permanent except change.” ~ Heraclitus in 500 BCE


    Change, like gravity, like taxes, is one of the few inevitable aspects of life that we can count on with certainty. Yet we often resist it or do not explore its potency. Change is a potent doorway into profound transformation if we open it.


    What is your relationship to change? Contemplate times when you have had big aspects of your life shift and what was your reaction to them? Change can be a window into transformation if we claim it as such & getting curious about our relationship with change can be a powerful life practice. When we are trying to live in the most aligned, conscious and awake way, making transformation our ally is key.


    When we actively strike up conversations on the inside and out, and develop a relationship with both the unseen & enigmatic aspects of life, whether you know it or not, whether you use the label or not, you are living what it means to be a Mystic.


    To transform takes both bravery and energy. When do you tend to process the emotions surrounding change?


    The story and archetype of the Phoenix is shared as are embodied ways to work with this energy. The concept of allowing space for and not rushing the process and stages of transformation is key. 


    The psychological contemplation of shadow work is discussed.


    The archetypal energies of Shiva & Persephone are detailed. Whichever aspects and lessons from the archetypes mentioned stood out, work with them by integrating them into your day-to-day life. Also briefly mentioned are Pluto, Eris & Kali. The word “transformation” entomological contains the word “trans” whose prefix means to bridge across. Embodying and doing practices that remind us of these archetypes act like a bridge taking us back and forth between our conscious and unconscious minds.


    A short guided meditation concludes the episode focusing on both the dissolution & creation cycles. This can be done over and over again.

    Sensitivity is Sexy: Empaths, Highly Sensitive People & Psychic Abilities

    Sensitivity is Sexy: Empaths, Highly Sensitive People & Psychic Abilities

    Have you been called “sensitive” often or told to toughen up from time to time over the course of your life? Or do you find that you say these things to someone in your world periodically? Perhaps you are extra sensitive to loud noises, harsh lights or you take on others feelings as if they were your own? Explored in this engaging episode are the distinguishing characteristics of empaths versus highly sensitive people (aka HSP) and concrete ways to skillfully work with these personality traits. Also discussed is leveraging the assets of these tendencies & the intersectionality of where they meet psychic abilities.


    Show Notes: 


    Sensitivity is in comparison to someone or something else. It can be exceedingly helpful, life affirming and balancing to know where we and our people fall in relationship to these terms. When we don’t shame ourselves or our people for how we are, and add in some practical and applicable knowledge to moment-to-moment life, then we walk further down the path of conscious living.


    To be a highly sensitive person, aka an “HSP”, actually doesn't necessarily mean that you cry at the drop of a hat or that you are easily offended. It is very much about having a lower tolerance for sensory input and includes a lower threshold for stimulation. Also the need for alone time is greater. Discussed is the scientific concept of “evolutionary mismatch.”


    Empaths experience the situation of someone else’s as if they were the one’s experiencing it themselves in real time and in current space reality….so this includes literally feeling someone else’s experience in your physical body and/or in your emotional body. Discussed is the idea in psychology of an “Empathic Spectrum” and the differences between sympathy, empathy and being an empath. Empaths often carry and process the emotional body of the collective. 


    You can be both an HSP and an empath. Detailed are examples of what life circumstances can cause these personality tendencies. Both of these tendencies could possibly make an individual more adept at accessing their psychic abilities. They can be overwhelming and exhausting to manage but the dividends they offer can yield the healing, space holding and revelation for many others. If you resonate with these tendencies, then consider safely exploring them and leverage them in ways that feel life enhancing and exciting to you. 


    If you recognize these tendencies in your people and they irritate you, consider, what is another aspect about this person that you love, appreciate and even admire that probably goes hand in hand with their extreme sensitivity? What does this part of them teach you? Or ask the same question about yourself to yourself. 


    Developing the qualities of empaths and of HSP can often help enhance psychic abilities.


    Closing guided meditation.

    Live Your Magic: Hypnosis, Channeling & Trances

    Live Your Magic: Hypnosis, Channeling & Trances

    If all answers are within…how do we access them? Exploring tools such as hypnosis, meditation & more help us raise our vibration, mood & find those answers we seek. The original intention of hypnosis & channeling was to help people better understand themselves and to connect to their true core nature. All hypnosis is really “dehypnosis” from our conditioning stemming from our upbringing & from societal messages telling us who we are and how we are supposed to be. When we practice how to ask life direct questions and leave the push and find the pull, then we begin to claim our superhero powers and live in magic.


    SHOW NOTES:


    A Mystic is someone who has direct experience with sacred truths & sacred energies. Someone who is in touch with deeper truth and can offer it in practical ways.


    Mystics and sages are tuning forks for others to lift you up and bring you into that vibration.


    How Drake became the catalyst for David’s spiritual awakening. 


    What am I not seeing? How traumas can be treasures.


    Being vs. Doing


    We can ask life direct questions and get answers. Leave the push and find the pull. Living Your Magic 


    The flower doesn’t dream of the bee, it blossoms and the bee comes. ~ Mark Nepo


    Hypnosis is the language and tool for awakening. It’s a learning state to ascertain more knowledge about yourself. All hypnosis is dehypnosis, from our upbringing and society, as to how we are supposed to be and who we truly are. We are conditioned from who we truly are to who we think we need to be. This conditioning takes us off the radio of tuning into our gifts. Realign you with your soul. Hypnosis is bringing yourself & your gifts into a heightened state of consciousness, not unconscious and lost control. You look like you are in a sleep-like state, however, it’s actually a heightened state of consciousness. You are still aware of the room but more aware of subtle textures and frequencies. The unconscious mind, informs subconscious mind (preconscious mind), informs conscious mind...


    States of Consciousness:


    Conscious Mind ->Preconscious Mind->Unconscious Mind->Super Conscious Mind


    People can be hypnotized without consent but you want consent as it’s in alignment energetically and in the way of integrity. As a hypnotist, we are engaging in a dance and I am the leader right now and acting as the GPS and you are going to follow my instructions by choice. Resonance.


    In ancient times, the original intention of hypnosis was to help people better understand themselves and to connect to their true core nature. The shamans would do a dance and build up a certain resonance in their body then like a tuning fork technique, they would transfer the energy that they had built up & drop someone into a trance so they’d go into different depths and access their own wisdom, knowledge and information.


    If all answers are within…how do we access them? 


    When we can find these tools, they provide these pockets that give us access to those answers that live within ourselves. Also, literally hypnosis and practices raise our vibration to more elevated heights with a guide, and then we come back and are living from a most elevated place. 


    Hypnosis can be seen as the closest thing to a real superhero power. Whether it’s wanting to lose an irrational fear, wanting to access past lives, life in between lives, weight loss, gain clarity and focus, enhance sex life, you can accomplish anything. 


    Daydreaming is a form of passive hypnosis as is reading a book. We do hypnosis as a natural occurrence in our daily life and the only difference is that with a professional hypnotist they take a spontaneous occurrence and access it more deliberately.

    Ancestral Exploration: A Pathway of Healing

    Ancestral Exploration: A Pathway of Healing

    Our family lineages can be powerful sources of support and healing if we uncover how to skillfully work with them. Even if you’ve never thought of your ancestors much before or if you feel they were duds (or worse!) discussed in this compelling episode are the myriad of psychological & spiritual benefits of doing so. Whether we know our family lineages or not, our ancestors are connected to us by energetic threads, and science has unequivocally proven their stories live in the marrow of our bones in the form of our DNA. Unpacked are safe & interesting ways you can create more revelation, guidance and connection in your life through accessing your family bloodlines. Plus when we learn to energetically and psychologically untangle ourselves from the baggage handed down osmotically to us from our families then we can focus on what is truly ours this lifetime to work on and create a genuinely original life. 


    SHOW NOTES:


    A Chinese proverb says to forget one’s ancestors is to be a brooke without a source, a tree without a root.


    For some of us the idea of our ancestors is romantic & for others, our ancestors bring up complicated feelings intertwined with our family’s very unique set of idiosyncratic tendencies, foibles and traumas. 


    Some of our ancestors’ stories and lives may be interwoven into the fabric of colonialism, ecological degradation, racism, classism, sexisim, homophobia, oppression in various forms and other uncomfortable narratives. Yet the reality is we are all branches of a certain tree whose roots burrough so deeply down into the earth, you have ancestors who for certain who were also healers, teachers, songstresses, herbalists, artists, creators, seekers, inventors & visionaries. 


    So whether you are aware and enamored of your more recent ancestors or this thought about your “deep ancestors” (the one’s whose names & stories you are unaware) ignites a spark in you to illuminate the fact that you are a direct descendent of brilliant earth wise geniuses who knew how to pay attention to the sky & its patterning, to be with the water and its nourishment, to work with fire and its alchemical ways, to work with the gusts & messages of the winds and to live in collaboration with the earth. They had to have in order to survive and preserve the genealogical line that you stand upon.


    These Beings most of whom slipped through history’s fingers before everything was being recorded like today, delighted in the miracle of life, were humbled by the pulsing necessity of death, knew the beauty of wisdom and aging, honored the preciousness of their tribe and heard the hallowed call of spirit in their mundane tasks which opened up pathways of reverence within their minds and magic in their lives.


    When we take time to follow our branches through the trunk of our families to our roots, those roots then plug us into the ground of Being and bring us back into connection. Our lives in this  modern age full of hyper speed and detachment from the natural world has led to such a profound craving for so many, to such a deep soul depravity that many folks have turned to distracted activities and/or addictions which disconnect us even further from our own humanity and take us further away from our own souls.


    For those of us longing to find connection, revelations, healing guidance and even magic, connecting to our known or unknown ancestors is a powerful way to do this.


    Our lineages of family are connected to us by energetic threads and when we heal the baggage that either lives in our DNA, we release the baggage that was passed down to us and free the beings in our family who live on after us. 


    Offered are a variety of practical and accessible ways you can begin or to continue your relationship with your ancestors.


    Discussed is the anthropological concept of “Ancestor Worship.”


    Discussed is the psychological concept “Johari’s Window.”

    Show Notes:


    Maintaining a relationship with the mystical aspects of life is about keeping up with practices, connecting, even if they vary. Like any quality relationship, you have to keep up the consistent effort.


    When we fail, we have failed to connect. ~ Novel, Howards End, by E. M. Forster 


    Maia shares about her journey into personal healing which led to her metier and set her on a journey which included studying in Ireland with an herbalist & traditional healer. The value of the lineages of learning and of having a teacher. 


    Herbalism & plant medicine is a vast world since time immemorial whose wisdom has been cut off in this modern day age & it’s our birth rite to reclaim it.


    Always a balance in herbalism between the intellect and intuition.Plant medicine is 100% like whole foods, life and magic in them.


    Illness isn’t necessarily always a psychological or emotional thing. Can be a physical thing i.e. like eating too much salt. Don’t infantilize people who are ill. You might end up with emotional issues from the illness but they are not always the cause, they can be an effect. When dealing with things imbalances or illness, approach it from a three dimensional view, holistically. As mystics, don’t deny things that could emanate from the physical realm. We came here to live in a human form. Our bodies are an entryway and portal into the mystical realms.


    Thoughts surrounding the growing popularity of the word and identification of “witch.”


    Discussion around oracle cards as a tool to help with divination & how to see the world and your life’s circumstances in a different way using them. 


    3 ancient forms of medicine: plant, animal & mineral kingdoms.


    Also discussed is if you do the same practices every day, consider finding one thing to change up so you aren’t just running through the motions as a way to stay present. It’s the presence that matters. The motions are to bring you to the presence of the moment. Are your practices and what you are doing bringing you into presence? We practice so that when shit hits the fan in life, you can slip into this space easily instead of spinning out.


    Intuition is about noticing the things you don’t normally notice. Build your intuition by noticing patterns. We invigorate what we pay attention to so begin to pay attention to some different things to set new patterns in your brain. 


    Grounding meditation.

    Show Notes: 


    What is a natal birth chart? The way the planets & luminaries are “talking” to each other inform challenges and opportunities for growth. Nothing about you is a mistake including. Discussed are the aspects in astrology called houses. You might have a theme about money due the way your planets in your chart are positioned but it’s always being aspected or talked to differently by the current position of the luminaries which are always moving. It is not a fixed energy always in chart. The moon changes sign every 2 1/2 days 


    What’s going on with money? Is it coming in, stopping, going out? The second house - ruled by Taurus governs this. Are other planets talking to second house - related to Saturn - boundaries/stop/systems . Uranus - Shocks and surprises . Neptune - confusion. Who is talking to your second house gives an idea of flow of money within the next year. Second house (Taurus): money, possessions, values, personal resources. Also back up, look at the eighth house (Scorpio) - other people’s money and taxes . Uranus in 8th house can mean taxes or windfall. Money in a contractual way. Venus in 8th house is about how I value myself and other people value me. Shared resources. Uranus can be positive and challenging shocks and for all parts of one’s chart, this is true.


    Career - 10th house, Capricorn. Legacy and Reputation. My public persona. Pluto - death, transformation, power. Dissolving energy. Pluto also has to do with business and systems and dissolving. Pluto turns everything to goo. There is a shared collective experience as to what’s happening to the current sky that we share. What’s happening in moon is happening for you and for me. What’s happening for Pluto is happening for you and for me. How the moon or Pluto might speak to your chart will be different however. 


    Anxiety. Where is Uranus in the chart is the main question and or where is Uranus aspecting now? Uranus is electrical shocks. Anxiety is often less about houses but 11th house (modern ruler is Aquarius, nervous system ). Or what is talking to Uranus?  It can make it feel hard to stay in a body like I have no control as electrical shocks can  be Scary. 


    Depression. 12th House. Pisces. Neptune rules this house. Where is Neptune and is Neptune sitting on your sun? Neptune transit - time to dream and sleep and go into la la land. The 12th house is about spirituality, transcendence, solitude as well as self sabotage & self undoing; realization and/or demise as it holds it all
