Why Do They Talk Like That?

I remember a reading I had with a talented Akashic reader not only for the information I got, but for it being the first time I encountered Akashic beings speaking in weird ways.  In this case, when she worked to channel my guides, they spoke in a variation of english-what-shakespeareShakespearian English which was very difficult to understand and which she would translate after they were finished speaking the entire message. …

The Journey or The Ride

There are a couple of reasons why I refer to teachers, elders, and other beings in the Akashics as mentors rather than ascended masters or dimensional overlords or any other such designation.  For me this has to do with relationship and underlying reason for the interaction. …

Research Into Reincarnation

Part and parcel with working in the Akashics are the topics of past lives and reincarnation.  Mostly I deal in reading those records for my clients and sometimes talking about the subjects on my blog or my emails but as I do research for my book project I run across all kinds of notations, theories, and stories about them. …

Cultural Empathy

In the second decade of the 21st century we’re a bit beyond the “OMG It’s all going to explode!” stage.  We’ve been there a few times already and the planet is still spinning. And we’ve gotten past they “I wonder what it will look like?”…

Akashic Mentors

One of the things I’ve learned through my own personal experience is that working with mentors in the Akashics never goes the way you think it will go.  Over time this has come to be amusing, mostly at my own expense, but in the moment it can be quite emotional. …

Kabbalah Studies

I’m currently studying Kabbalah as part of a bigger book project and along the way I’ll be putting together a DailyOm.com class which allows students to access the Akashics in order to work with the Tree of Life.  Ah, the wild and wacky things I get into in my spare time.…

Good Endings

No matter what type of spiritual work you’re doing -ceremony, altars, meditation, grace before meals, healing work- the way you end the process needs to be just as graceful and thought out as your start.  I know any number of practitioners that no longer work in group because they raise energy and focus it on a goal and then just walk away from the ceremony without grounding themselves, without releasing connections, and without checking in to make sure that everyone is well and complete and finished with the process. …

Finding a Mentor

In non-industrialized, non-urbanized cultures part of the ecosystem is teaching the accumulated wisdom of the elders to the children in order for the entire group/tribe/clan to thrive.  Much of that is very practical such as teaching about weather patterns, how to hunt, fish, plant, harvest, store food, keep livestock, and live in balance with the ecosystem. …
