Excess is the key to understanding the flux of daily life this week. From the “I deserve to have more than necessary” to the “oh I wish I had everything” to the “I who have nothing” attitudes swing to extremes. Best to be prepared for these shifting moods, yours or others’, to be quite expressive—the […]

The planets continue to dial up the intensity this week, and just like last week, many of us are experiencing strong urges to break free from whatever enslaves, whether those systems are political, emotional, financial, professional, or creative. Expect to feel challenged in all those areas where you’re clinging to structures that have outlived their […]

Living Fearwards

Fear is a sensation we name according to the situation. If you are standing at the rim of the Grand Canyon, you speak of fear of heights: acrophobia. If you are in a crowded place, the word is agoraphobia. There are a thousand names for fear, but only one sensation, which, of course, can vary […]

The Spirit in the Ink

As far back as we have discovered preserved human skin, we have found evidence of tattooing. It has always been a means of establishing both cultural and individual identity, and often has been used as an approach to both mundane and spiritual power. Although the practice and art of tattoo have changed greatly as new […]

For the next several weeks, the planets align in complex, and for the most part, difficult patterns that underscore, once again, the serious dilemmas many of us are facing personally as well as collectively. Although it is possible to acknowledge these patterns as celestial indications of a concentrated phase of personal and collective transformation, and […]

Mind Body Spirit Utah: July 23 – Aug. 11 Event

Happy Pioneer Day to all. After almost 20 years of living in Utah, I continue to forget—each and every single year—this auspicious holiday exists. But pushing boundaries and venturing into foreign landscapes of the heart, mind and body continue to be good for the soul in any epoch or locale and so it is worth […]

The energy of the 4th chakra can be easily felt. Unfortunately for many, this only becomes obvious after experiencing the breakup of a desired relationship or the loss of a dream. The resultant pain felt in the center of the chest is what we call a broken heart.

Through the third chakra we begin to access the astral planes —more subtle frequencies of energy than are experienced through our five senses alone. This center is receptive to the impulses that inform our “gut instinct,” that way of knowing without knowing why. Through the third chakra we develop our courage, determination and will. It […]

Chakra two, the sacral chakra, is the source of passionate emotions. It embodies our innate inner wildness. When this wildness has been repressed, we will often seek to destroy its external counterpart, wilderness, for it is too painful to have mirrored back to us from nature the freedom and beauty that we have denied within […]

Twas the 19th of April, 1943 in Basel, Switzerland, and Sandoz Labs chemical researcher Albert Hofmann had been researching a derivative of ergot fungus, attempting to isolate a new anti-hemorrhaging drug. Three days before, on Friday, April 16, Hofmann had noticed some odd dizziness and restlessness after he’d been working with the new extract, and […]

Chakra Series: Chakra One

When the first chakra is balanced, we have what is needed; we feel safe and secure. Until this chakra is balanced and its issues addressed, we will find it hard to focus our attention elsewhere. If we are always in a crisis or survival mode, we have little energy to devote to other areas of […]
