Your lifetime energy animal will be your guide, teacher and spiritual messenger throughout your incarnation and so befriending it, understanding its unique energy pattern, harnessing its power as well as learning the lessons it has to teach you is one of the most powerful and effective spiritual practices that we can follow.

Trance Dancing With the Jinn by Yasmin Hennish

Trance Dancing With the Jinn by Yasmin Hennish

 Collins English Dictionary defines trance as ‘a state of ecstasy or mystical absorption so intense as to cause a temporary loss of consciousness at the earthly level’. Of course modern use of the word tends to include impressions of raves and mind-bending electronic music played in sweaty venues to an audience most of whom are high on synthetic substances. However whilst the trance state is a powerful entrance into communicating with the spirit world’s the traditional approach has been to employ more natural tools such as chanting and drumming. Trance States In her book Trance Dancing With the Jinn internationally acclaimed belly-dancer and teacher of Middle Easter dance experience Yasmin… Read More

Nature Spirituality by Lupa

Nature Spirituality by Lupa

Do you have to be an active Pagan in order to appreciate the inherent spirituality within nature? The assumption made by many is that simply by opening up to the extraordinary transforming power of our natural world we are somehow regressing to ancient and arcane supernatural beliefs. This of course is untrue but it is an attitude that has prevailed for several centuries and added to the sad and dangerous disconnect that the human race currently has with the very world that supports and sustains it. A New Natural relationship In her book Nature Reality From the Ground Up, author, artist and naturalist Lupa shows how by working with totems… Read More

Sky Shamans of Mongolia by Kevin Turner

Sky Shamans of Mongolia by Kevin Turner

Although examples of the Shamanic tradition can be found in every corner of the world few areas are more closely connected to what many see as its most important and authentic strand as the region of Mongolia. This relatively small country is sandwiched between the countries of two of the leading super-powers of China and Russia and as a result of its geographical and political position it has been a country susceptible to the imposition of foreign values. Despite this, and the centuries of Buddhist and communist persecution, the country has seen an exponential rise in the number of Shamans practicing in Mongolia in recent years and particularly since the… Read More

Beneath The Tor by Nina Milton

Beneath The Tor by Nina Milton

Whilst many prefer the impressive scale of construction in such sacred mystery sites as the Egyptian pyramids or Machu Picchu or Stonehenge there are very few sites are quite so impressive, mysterious or magickal as Glastonbury Tor. Residing on the very outskirts of that most bohemian of all spiritual centres, Glastonbury town, United Kingdom – a place know for its famous abbey and sacred well, the Tor stands towers high above the surrounding countryside as a solitary outcrop of hill upon which rests a single traditional church-like tower. In of itself the Tor is not that spectacular until a visitor climbs to the top and realises its geographical reference to… Read More

Sidewalk Oracles by Robert Moss

Sidewalk Oracles by Robert Moss

All spiritual and religious traditions openly accept that there is, surrounding us – and yet at most times unseen, a parallel world of spirit that interweaves with our own and which occasionally even interpenetrates with it. For thousands of years we have been conditioned to believe that it is only initiated members of our spiritual communities that have the qualities necessary to enter into a state of intercourse with this world leading most people to fail to recognize that each one of us is a multi-dimentional being and that we can, and do, receive communications from these inner worlds all of the time. In his book Sidewalk Oracles, Robert Moss… Read More

Walking in Light by Sandra Ingerman

Walking in Light by Sandra Ingerman

Shamanism is one of the few spiritual practices practised throughout the World. In locations as geographically diverse as Russia, Asia, Europe, Africa, Australia, North and South America a shamanic tradition exists with only small deviations in the way that it is honored. The word ‘shaman’ originates from the Tungus tribe in Siberia. It means ‘spiritual healer’ and reflects the fact that at its core the tradition features group or community healing. Shamans apply their skills to both physical and spiritual ailments. Shamanism, unlike religion and some more traditional spiritual doctrines, is a living philosophy that has learned to remain relevant to its people’s need via its ability to develop and… Read More

The Shaman Within by Claude Poncelet

The Shaman Within by Claude Poncelet

Ever since the 16th Century scientific revolution which was heralded in by the likes of Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, Bacon, Descartes and Newton there has been a clash of paradigms between contemporary science and metaphysics. Up until this point in history, this radical separation in man’s approach to the mysteries of our World did not exist until everything changed with the advent of the new reductionist philosophy—one which the spiritual and religious spheres felt unable to uphold. It is only the mutual disregard that each side holds of one another that offers any sense of commonality between them and divisions are as deep today as they ever were. Nevertheless, there are… Read More

Awaken the Inner Shaman by Jose Luis Stevens

Awaken the Inner Shaman by Jose Luis Stevens

Many spiritual sources, from the great mystics through to today’s advocates of the Law of Attraction, speak of the existence of an invisible power that is accessible to each one of us. A serious failing of both the ancient and modern references to this power is that they fail to explain why it exists, where it emanates from and how to use it in our daily lives. Writer and teacher Jose Luis Stevens, in his latest book, refers to this power as the ‘Inner Shaman’. He believes that it is the human heart, often described in esoteric teachings as the second brain, that interfaces between our mundane self and the… Read More
