Oracle Deck Sacred Geometry is the key to understanding the way the universe is designed. Called the language of light and science of compassion, its images and shapes are embedded in DNA, mandalas, pyramids, crystals and well, everything. Anyone who has ever gazed at a spider's web, meditated on a mandala or Yantra, visited a pyramid, walked a labyrinth, or peered through a microscope has felt the effects of sacred geometry. Now the Sacred Geometry Oracle Deck introduces an entirely new way for you to gain access to this wisdom and unlock its power.
The set includes a 128-page 6X9 paperback book with 64 full-color oracle cards in a beautifully boxed set for $35. See this page for more info or to order.

We Are All Connected by Zacciah Blackburn, PhD / Center of Light Institute of Sound Healing and Shamanic Studies
We are all connected. Though many of us may understand this on any number of levels, some of us may not have fully realized the vast potential of what this can mean, and how that can affect us, and our well-being. For instance, many of us certainly feel we are connected to each other in our families or community. Some of us realize we are interconnected to all humanity, or even to all of life on Earth. In indigenous and wisdom traditions, this often also means that we are connected to all aspects of the Cosmos. In numerous traditions, this is an integral understanding to one's presence in, one's approach to, and balance within, life. We walk in harmony with all life.

The Hamsa Gayatri
(The Sacred Swan) by Yogi Baba Prem / VedicPath.com
The mantra to the sacred swan is a mantra for uplifting consciousness. As hamsa literally means 'swan', it represents purity, but this is also symbolic for the soul. The soul, our true essence, is synonymous with the swan. The swan, or soul, in its highest state requires a different term to more clearly define it - paramahamsa, or the supreme swan is the yogic term commonly used. Parama comes from the root para - meaning higher, elevated or highest. It also means final, last and more than. Parama, itself, means most distant, highest, primary and most prominent. Therefore, paramahamsa literally means supreme swan.

A False Sense Of Security by Sheri Rosenthal / Transformational Life Coach and Author
When times get tough the human mind tends to lean towards fear - constantly projecting itself into an uncertain future. To survive this fear, the mind calms and tricks itself into feeling safe - an illusion of control... The need to know is one of the most potent strategies of the ego-mind and while there is a place for acquiring certain information, most of our questions are totally pointless. In our quest for information (rather than wisdom) it doesn't matter if that information is truth - just having an answer is enough to lull us into a false comfort. Read full article >>>

Most mothers understand that it is possible to communicate with the unborn child.
This does not have to stop if the pregnancy ends in miscarriage or termination. As an intuitive, I have developed the ability to help apparently infertile couples achieve their goal. They are helped to connect with the spirit of the child who was lost to them, or not yet conceived.
Before birth, babies are undoubtedly aware of their mother's and father's thoughts and feelings. They are in still the spirit realm, therefore less restricted than most humans in their field of knowing.
A couple who have suffered a miscarriage may need help in communicating with the child, which may have reasons for being afraid to come. Spirit Babies are very specific about the reasons for choosing their parents (citing interests the parents have, which they had not told me) or past life/geographical data about the parents which are relevant to the choice of parents.
Do you wish to communicate with the child you are meant to have?
My focus is helping mothers learn to communicate with their Spirit Babies (future children) after miscarriage or before conception, which is often followed by successful conception.
My new book Spirit Baby: What You Can Learn from your Future Child is now available for sale through Amazon:
Do you have a recurring theme in your life that you would to like to understand or know how to change? Guidance can give you the insight you need in a Channeled Life Reading. When these recurring themes are painful, they frequently manifest as chronic illness, repeated patterns of difficult relationships, crushing debt, intrusive negative thoughts, and other recurring and painful events, situations and conditions; life can be overwhelming. Long ago in my practice Guidance showed me that recurring themes always have an underlying energy that most of us are largely unaware of. By clearing that energy at the source, the recurrent themes no longer manifest. The source energy includes past lives, childhood, trauma, fear, and persistent belief systems in the mass consciousness that you're having a hard time letting go of. We can help you clear underlying energy with Awakenings and Mind-Body-Spirit medicine. In all of our work there is never any judgment, there is only Love and Light. Visit our website to learn how we can assist you to enjoy the freedom and joy of manifesting the life that you desire.
