Seeing is Dreaming: Robert Moss

Robert Moss is a teacher and human being I much admire.  He is versed in mythology and folklore, symbolism and psychology, and Native American rituals and rites. His travels and teachings have led him around the world, and he is the author of nine books on dreaming, as well as three historical novels. There are few people I can think of who have led such a rich and connected life, and who dedicates time to sharing knowledge and life experience with others, particularly as related to dreams and dream material. Born in Australia, Robert survived not one, but three near-death experiences in childhood.  A former lecturer in ancient history at the Australian National University, Robert also is a best-selling novelist, poet, journalist and independent scholar.  He is the creator of Active Dreaming, an original synthesis of modern dreamwork and shamanism. From his audio series Dream Gates, he says: "I have become convinced that dreaming is one of the defining characteristics of human beings. In prehistoric times we...

Synchronicity: Being in the Flow of Life

Each month, I send out a subscriber-only newsletter and I want to share with you a section of the last newsletter.  I include a Q&A that covers a wide range of topics  including writing, editing, metaphysics, astrology, and other similar info.  This month's Q&A was particular poignant, so I wanted to make it available here for you. Stephanie from San Francisco, California wrote: How do you explain synchronicities and what do they mean? What if I told you that your question is itself a synchronicity? Leading up to this newsletter I’ve been thinking about and wanting to write about co-creatorship. The mention of Sagittarius and the planet Jupiter, earlier, starts to discuss this. Not only that, in the second interview installment with M.J. Rose, she mentions near the end the idea of synchronicity as the term was coined and defined by Carl Jung. Bravo Stephanie for being in the flow!   Synchronicities are most often seen as 'coincidences' that appear when we do not expect...

Integrating the Shadow: The Light and The Darkness in Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan

In the early twentieth-century, when Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung parted ways, the future of psychoanalysis was unclear. Sure, Jung had presented academic papers to his peers and had volumes of journals and research, but his interest in the esoteric, astrology, the “occult,” the invisible, was well beyond his peers’ understanding of such subjects and how these subjects may relate to the study of clinical psychology. Darren Aronofsky has always been one of my favorite directors since his early beginnings with Pi and Requiem for a Dream.  The Fountain remains one of my favorite films of all time for many reasons, but when Black Swan debuted at the theater, I didn’t rush out to see it.  It came and left the big screen, won an Oscar, and still I had made no attempt to view the film. I knew that it would require attention, I knew it would have a profound effect upon its viewers, including me. I knew it would be intense and...

Kristina Walsh on Biotech, Radio Shows and The New Wave of Love

In the last post we learned about Kristina Walsh's metaphysical training.  In this post, she talks about the connection between the metaphysical and the physical,  her work as a radio show host, and the new energies of 2013! How does your experience in the biotechnology industry hew to the topics and experiences you explore in the metaphysical? "I started in the biotech field as a temp position, and while I loved the humanitarian aspect of the idea of the industry, I had no idea what I was in for, or that it would have a relation to my clairvoyant life. In 1993, when I started the clairvoyant program at BPI, I had experience with healing and mediation, but not to that degree, but between learning a whole new industry, and having to learn about the science the company was working on, and I got really involved with creating slide presentations among other things. This forced me to ask questions, how to draw cellular...

Experience, Experience: Kristina Walsh on Clairvoyance, Color, and Psychic Training

In the last post, I introduced Kristina Walsh, biotechnologist, trance medium and SFN Radio host. In this post we'll learn more about Kristina's amazing life experiences and metaphysical training. Can you describe your first clairvoyant experience? How did you feel and what did you do with the information that was given to you? "I would say the first experiences was waking up from a dream or nightmare, and having a knowing that I was okay, and that it was okay to go back to sleep. I was “talked to” in those moments, that it was okay, and I was given tips to try next time I “woke” up in a dream, something like... I can run away from whatever it was after me, or create another dream within the dream in that moment. Other times, I also would wake up in the middle of the night, and I would know there was a presence in the room, and while I felt scared, I...

Sahvanna Arienta: Author, Entrepreneur, Lightworker (Part 3 of 3)

In this third and final installment, Sahvanna talks about Lightworkers and their healing abilities as well as the importance of the greater community. Here's what she had to say: In a chapter called “Your Most Sacred Conduit” you mention that challenges, problems and issues are ways that the universe brings situations that provide experiences for spiritual growth. What reminders, sayings, mantras or techniques do you employ when you’re experiencing challenges in your own life? “When my heart chakra is wounded, I accept it. I embrace it and I feel love for the experience. We all experience pain, and without owning it, we cannot heal it and release it. Harboring pain and toxic energy in your heart chakra will inhibit your relationships, healing abilities and expansion of your light energy. There are so many books out there that tell you how to be happy, how to have this perfect life, to me that is only setting yourself up to fail. You know the...

Sahvanna Arienta: Author, Entrepreneur, Lightworker (Part 2 of 3)

In part 1 of this interview, we were getting to know Sahvanna and learning more about her.  This post, part 2 of 3, will discuss some of the concepts that are mentioned in her second and latest book, The Lightworker's Source. We'll also learn a bit about the work that she does on this planet. Who are “Lightworkers” and what purpose do they serve on this planet? “We all carry within us the Light of God. Lightworkers are those who align with that Light to heal through love. They are artists, peace activists, musicians, doctors, scientists, or maybe the ordinary person you pass on the street. Aligning with the Light does not always present itself in a grandiose way, no good deed is too small, insignificant, or unimportant to expand the Light of the world and allow someone to work in a Lightworker capacity.” You discuss in your book the importance of trusting the “higher self.”  Can you share with readers some practical tips...

Colette Baron-Reid on Coaching, Oracle Cards, Playing Nice in the Sandbox, and The Softail Deluxe

When I first decided to start a blog, I thought about how great it would be to include interviews with people I wanted to support, people whose work I felt was interesting and important, and those I didn't know, but felt compelled to learn more about.  It seemed like a lofty goal, but one that I held in the back of my mind for months. I recently had the opportunity to connect with Colette Baron-Reid and I immediately got the signal that I shouldn't wait any longer to begin a series of interviews for this blog. I emailed her and she quickly responded that she'd be delighted to chat!  I was very excited to have a conversation with her, and I'm delighted now, to bring that conversation to you. Colette Baron-Reid is an intuitive, coach, educator and author.  She's given talks and taught workshops and intensives in the U.S., Canada and Europe.
