Human beings are evolved and concentrated points of higher awareness scattered throughout the physical plane. We shine like bright lights in an otherwise glowing landscape, growing more radiant and extending our light to all in our proximity. In this way we human beings are growing in awareness and helping the rest of the physical plane to grow brighter as well even if we don’t know it. The higher-self abides in our awareness of our own consciousness but we are often distracted from this higher self by focusing on thoughts, feelings, and perceptions seeking to define, explain and interpret our surroundings. In other words, we humans are so curious and fascinated by the goings on in the physical world that we forget who we are for long stretches of time. We begin to identify with our physical bodies and our very local personalities – projecting importance to everything that seems outside of ourselves and forgetting who and what we actually are. In a word, we humans choose to become small and compressed when we are actually spacious and transcendent.
When I was a child I remember being alternately impressed and terrified by the biblical command, “I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt not have false gods before me.” This was the command of a dominant God issuing a directive with implications of dire punishment if disobeyed. It conjured up images of frenzied hordes dancing around and bowing down to golden calves and huge statues of demonic images. I recalled the names Baal and X and the whole thing gave me the creeps.
On the heels of a powerful solstice that begins a new cycle comes a full moon. This moon is in Capricorn on Thursday, June 24 at 12:39 PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT).
This is an optimistic time, and could be very prosperous if you can move through the challenges of the distractions of drama and ego-driven negative behaviors in yourself and in others that may crop up. Honesty, emotional vulnerability, humility and a good spiritual base are important foundational aspects for success during this time. It can be a very expansive time especially if you can harness the positivity and optimism. It is a good time to reflect on the containers of your life. What is too small, too big, completed etc. We have some good momentum to initiate the creation of some new containers for ourselves for this cycle.
I get many questions from my students and clients about raising their vibration and raising the vibration of the situations they are in, perhaps even raising the vibration of family members, colleagues, neighbors and so on. This is quite an interesting topic so here I am going to address the ins and outs of how to do it, when its appropriate, what’s possible and what is not.
In How to Pray the Shaman’s Way author José Luis Stevens offers an insightful guide to this universal, transformative practice, and explains how engaging in shamanic prayer can lead to deeper healing, a more grounded outlook on life, and an ever-expanding sense of connection with the natural world, our fellow human beings, and the divine universe.
I would like to respond to the many of you who raise the subject of the desecration of the earth, how depressing it is to see what humans have done to the earth, and what can be done if anything to help restore it. What accompanies this concern is often great anger at what has happened, a tendency to blame others for the destruction, deep resentment, and other horrible feelings of despair. While this is all very understandable it is exactly the opposite of what can be done to restore the earth. What I am going to talk about here may seem like the ravings of a lunatic, or some pie in the sky idealistic solution that is delusional.
When I was a school-age child I always puzzled over how and why people could be so mean. There were gang members that threatened me on the way to and from school. On a couple of occasions, they assaulted my friends and I. I got a new bike for Christmas…
We are excited to announce a new book by José Stevens, with foreword by don Jose Ruiz,

Discover the Secrets of Shamanic Prayer
Prayer is an intensely personal communication that covers the range of human experience: from gratitude, worship, and celebration, to grief, affliction, and suffering.
Toltec, Mayan, and Hopi prophecies pinpoint these times as a period of radical change moving us from a dependence on material things to the new paradigm of releasing our attachments. A second theme change calls for a shift from trying to find external solutions to problems to looking within to solve our problems. In fact, by May of this year, 2021, the fuel that feeds the 5th sun and its old paradigm will be shut off and the new 6th sun will be firmly in place with its new paradigm. This does not mean that it will necessarily be easy to make this dramatic shift. Old habits die hard, especially those that have been in place for a 6,625-year cycle. The difference will be that our old way of doing things will no longer bear fruit because the fuel spigot will be completely shut off for that old approach and the fuel spigot for the new way will be completely turned on and will only fuel the new paradigm.
Let’s begin this article with a simple definition of our main term “Proactive.”
Being proactive means that you make things happen, instead of waiting for them to happen to you. Being active means “To do something.” The prefix pro-means “before.” So, if you are being proactive, you are going to be ready before something happens. The opposite term is to be re-active, or waiting for things to play out before responding. So now we have a working definition of what this article is all about.
