A New Year & New Moon in Capricorn To Seed 2014

112285A1EE634834AB773E126C63EFA8We fly into 2014 with a powerful Super New Moon on the 1st of the year. This New Moon in Capricorn will be the perfect way to initiate strong intention seeds to unearth a renewed life into blossom, as the year unfolds. It is time to write a new story and live out loud, the beautiful, uniquely creative expression and love of you.

And with Pluto joining the New Moon, there will be revitalization and energetic evolution that comes from rebirthing, after having embraced the deep journey within. Unconscious conditioning is the old way and now is about becoming a conscious agent of evolution through engaging and welcoming change so you do not self-destruct.

As with all things, this is a choice. As we initiate this New Year with the seeds of fresh beginnings, how will you choose to continue your journey? Responsibly, with dedicated, mature integrity and balanced heart, or rashly and obnoxiously like aggressive and undisciplined adolescents?

Literal and symbolic deaths and rebirths are part of this cyclical journey, but Pluto promises valuable transformation, one way or another.

I’ve also noticed just recently, a link to a condition I have with my own processes changing, that happen to be tied to this New Moon energy. The condition is a cross between symphysis pubis dysfunction and sacroiliac join dysfunction – but mostly residing in the pelvic area, which gets exasperated with rigorous leg-lifting and uphill strains. I hadn’t experienced it until recently when having those cleansing and repatterning shifts taking place for my own new upgrade. I find this to be symbolically connected to the very theme of remnants of old deeply shifting in order to move forward in new and freer ways.

I happen to have Capricorn as my rising sign and most of my life have been that very determined, relentless goat that will climb any mountain its challenged with and not give up. However, this is the old way and its time to realize that contracts have been completed. What I’ve been letting go over the years included shifting from the “work hard” and “over-achieving” mentality that came from a place of control, and instead, have been embracing things in stride and only taking on what is in balance and alignment with me – the new way.

This to include enjoying more of the freedom and joy of the pastures, as well as intuitively and leisurely climbing to new heights with gentle discipline from an authentic heart, rather than calculated or strained steps from devised ideas.

Part of the Capricorn energy is to realize that there is no rush and that you are in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing. Patience and allowing your inner guidance to align that right timing becomes key. So yes, there is the letting go aspect around this New Moon and really embracing the integrity of your heart to create the quality of life you deserve and desire.

This is a great time for both a literal and symbolic cleansing of everything toxic that will impede your wholeness that comes from being in your frequency and accelerating your vibration. And while things are purging and shifting, realize it’s not important to see the result, it’s only important to trust you are on the right path and that you will be guided and supported to each perfect step on the journey.

So tune in to the natural rhythms of nature so that you may hear and follow the guidance of your heart, as it is aligned with our Earth Mother. Live as the example of your own empowered authenticity and let others find the power of their own sovereign free will to live in their wholeness as well. Truth begins with you and from there you can create lasting change with the honesty and integrity you consistently activate and embody within yourself.

432 Hz and the Wizards of Oz

This is an interesting post about sound frequencies and how they have been manipulated. As Shane Chunephisal shared in my interview about him and his work as a sound healer, Crystal Bowls vibrate at a frequency of 99.9% purity with a 432hz frequency. This makes them a powerful tool for instant transmutation. Since everything is frequency, I find sound healing to be one of the most powerful and immediate ways to shift things. Sound is vibration, which is a function of energy – energy being what the Universe IS. And so it’s no wonder that if sound is manipulated to a different frequency, this would affect the way we are able to shift things. An interesting read, followed by a beautiful nature symphony. More on sound in upcoming posts. Thank you Laura and Lance for the posts.

Awakening A Fairy – Iron Fairy Magick

faeryA whimsical post felt in store for the light-heartedness of today and the energy we’re moving more into. I recently made a new fairy friend, named Brook, and her magick and mystery is already casting a lovely aura of enchantment into my life.

So who is Brook, you ask? Well, she’s a beautiful cast iron fairy sculpture that I brought to life, gifted to me by a dear friend as a Christmas gift.

I guess my friends know me well. 😉

Although fairies are very close and familiar to me, in the literal sense, I hadn’t heard of these “Iron Fairies,” as they are known, but am now quite enamored by them.

Iron Fairies are magickal, old-world charm, cast iron sculptures created by Australian artist, Ashley Sutton. Each is hand made and unique, given a name, with her own individual personality, the wings of a certain insect, and comes housed in a sweet tin, along with her own special Magic Fairy Dust (a different colored dust for each fairy), and a poem on a scroll about her to describe the kind of fairy that she is. Apparently the Blue Fairies are considered to be naughty ones, but eventually they all will develop a pretty patina of natural rust, adding to their charm.

I was prompted to look more into these fairies and their story and this led to Ashley’s story.

A little background on Ashley Sutton:

Ashley is a unique and eccentric character who once worked as a miner in the heart of Australia’s northwest, deep down in the dark world of the iron mines doing back-breaking labor in difficult conditions. Longing to escape the daily grind of this work, he created a fairy tale for his own freedom.

“I longed to escape the monotony, tedium and gloom,” he recounts. “So I created this fairy tale in my mind to help set my spirit free.”

The Iron Fairies are based upon the original story Ashley wrote and illustrated where he takes readers on a magickal journey into his underground world. He shares real life experiences reflected in the enchanting, very moving, and often lonely “little” people living in the mines and describes how he and his work colleagues started making little iron fairies.

Ashley created a world where communities of little miners lived underground, unnoticed, for hundreds of years, toiling away in the darkness, building their strange machines from the rare red ore of the Pilbara. And one day, unbeknownst as to why, the miners started making the fairies and placing them in the gardens above their labyrinthine tunnels. It is said that the little fairies remain in a state of “suspended” animation, until they’re brought above ground, sprinkled with magic fairy dust, and touched by the first light of the morning sun to awaken them from slumber. It is then that they are set free, alive with their enchantment, to roam the world and help make wishes come true.

faery3According to the story, each fairy had a brief life span of 3-6 years before slowing turning back to rust. It’s said that in the final diary, two miners created a perfect formula, however, and this is what is available to each of us.

So now, when you bring home, or are gifted an Iron Fairy friend, you must follow the instructions provided with each, by using your small vial of Magic Fairy Dust to set your fairy free from rust. This will awaken your friend and the fun begins!

It’s like opening a little portal of mystery, mischief, and magick!

The books Ashley wrote are a series of three journals that make up The Iron Fairies Trilogy that take you on journey of the story behind these magickal beings and their creation, and includes some of their descriptions and even sketches of machines and cave systems in the mine, as well as a secret Blue Fairy Code that the naughty blue fairies have drawn into the miner’s journal and apparently has a secret you can help solve with the key provided. 😉 Fun!

The fairy I was gifted is named Brook – Fairy of Bougainvillea. Brook was born circa 1905 and made from ore pit 1,2 and 3. Her personality is happy, easy going, and likes to have many friends. She lives and plays in the Bougainvillea tree and has wings of dragonfly lava. And I brought her to life with her sparkly light green Magic Fairy Dust.

And this her poem:

Look! I’m Brook! Can you see when I play?
come with me, I’ll show you the way.

Hot pinks, purples and apricot shades,
surrounded by beauty that never fades.

Big sharp thorns that protect me at night,
From bugs! And critters! And things that bite!

So visit the Bouganvillea tree,
open the flowers and you’ll find me!

With this Fairy Brook
you will never feel alone,
She will bring much happiness
To you and your home.

faery2Being one that follows the fairy codes, I immediately followed the guidelines provided with my fairy on bringing her out of her slumber and into waking life, the moment I took her home. Rather than simply sprinkling fairy dust, however, I intentfully and lovingly spread fairy dust on her wings, over her heart, solar plexus, crown, third eye, face, and body, and then placed her on my desk to await the morning sun. And now she sits (still sparkling with her fairy dusted magick) on my shelf in a realm of crystal and other enchanted friends. I even gave her my mini fairy wand that felt like the perfect gift to welcome her with and seemed meant for her. 🙂

Since she has come, I indeed feel a shift in the energy here in my office and have already received a couple of gifts and wishes. Thank you Brook!

Whether or not you believe, these little fairy friends are pure joy and will tickle the inner child in you. And even if all you experience is a smile each time you look upon one, that is their magick at work, warming and opening your heart a little more each day.

What a perfect gift and friend to embark this new year of adventure and expansion with! I’m so grateful.

Yes, the “bell still rings” for me.

Make a wish, hold to the integrity of your heart, and watch your wishes come true…..

How To Make Stress Your Friend

Last night we were listening to some TedTalks on the way home and this one stood out as one to share, as it not only is a topic that affects so many people, but it also points to two of the things I wrote about on the subject of stress that are now backed by studies.

Don’t you just love how science catches up with spirituality more and more? 😉

Kelly McGonigal is a health psychologist who shifted her own perspective of how she was treating her patients and how she herself was viewing stress, when she discovered that what she was teaching over the last 10 years was doing more harm than good, which basically was “turning stress into the enemy”. After researching the studies, she rethought her whole approach, as the studies proved that a person’s belief about stress was the culprit to decreased health and even mortality, rather than stress itself.

Kelly now urges people to see stress as positive and to realize that it also makes you social.

These are my favorite statements she shares:

“How you think and act can transform your experience of stress. When you choose to view your stress response as helpful, you create the biology of courage. When you choose to connect with others under stress you can create resilience.

Now I wouldn’t necessarily ask for more stress in my life, but you can see it as another access to your compassionate heart and to your pounding physical heart to give you strength and energy. You can trust yourself to handle life’s challenges and remember you don’t have to face them alone.”

No matter what it is, whether stress, how you feel about yourself, or any part of your life, beliefs will play an important role in repatterning. It’s not the only piece to the puzzle, but shifting perspectives is a huge key to revealing more ease, more answers, and providing more empowerment instantly.

Of course there are other parts to this that play a role and different ways to help yourself process the stress, including the importance of balance, not purposely taking on a crazy amount of things thinking that you’re invincible, nor taking on things out of unhealthy reasons like guilt, victimization, self-sacrifice, self-sabotage, or martyrdom, for instance.

Yet what Kelly shares can begin a new inner dialogue of holistic support that will help to promote reduction in unhealthy stress perceptions that will lead you to healthier perceptions and increased connection, which ultimately puts you on the track to overall well-being.

When you become aware of something, you take back your power to be the “whole” person that you are and realize the perfection inherent in the bigger picture.

Here are pieces of my own insights on the perception of stress working “for” me and the importance of it leading me to connect with others in my post, Stress, Overwhelment, Anxiety…Spirituality Isn’t An Immunity Pass, But Does Seed You With The Alchemy Of Awareness To Shift It, which echo Kelly’s thoughts from the studies:

Remember, life challenges are the ones we choose and are there to support the transformational evolvement that we knew would assist us in being that which we are and always were behind the illusions and fluff. Varying degrees of stress are not bad, but our perspective and approach can shift them into being the natural parts of human experience that they are.

You are a luminous being seeking to know and express yourself and sometimes the rate of expansion you go through can be overwhelming at times. The key is to make a conscious choice to perceive the reality before you as a perfect set of divine experiences working FOR your highest good, not AGAINST it….

In my own journey of learning how to move through stress, I also learned it was helpful for me to have a heart-to-heart with those near and dear to me to share with them what my protocol is when I get stressed and that it isn’t personal. I also shared with them the things that I feel and how that makes me act, as well as shared the things in that moment that would be helpful for me and asked if they were willing to assist me with the process. Things like not reacting to the momentary stress I am blowing out of proportion, just listening to me, helping me to stop and encourage taking a different approach, etc. That coupled with the things I was putting into practice, all would help me to be able to shift my process and speed up the time in which I could do it.

While it is up to us to make the changes, we aren’t islands unto ourselves. Remember that your stress is also felt and experienced by everyone around you and there’s no reason you can’t ask help from your loved ones for some of the supportive ingredients that can assist you. Chances are, they would love to help out, as they don’t want to see you stressed and they don’t want to react in ways that they feel bad about, or that add to your stress. And when you engage them in your process, they will also learn more about their own, feel more open to sharing things they go through and how you might support them, and in totality a closer connection and depth to your relationship is created.


snow man christmasIt’s one of those times of the year that reminds you to connect with your inner child, to dream and believe, to see through eyes and hearts of wonder, share your love with everyone in peace and harmony, recognize the beauty in and around you, and to brightly shine your light from the truth of your heart. 

For me, this is every day because I still “hear the bell.”

If you’re wondering what that means, it comes from The Polar Express, which I was watching again last night. In the movie, adults, and even children, who don’t believe can’t hear the magick Christmas bells. It only rings for all who DO believe. And for these people, the magick is never lost.

Yesterday I spent the day working, which included creating a special design for a client that embodies so much of the new energy collectively being birthed, and then spent my evening making 2 desserts for today’s Christmas celebration, and making a Christmas Eve feast and dessert for last evening, while watching The Polar Express. Even Joy, whose birthday it was yesterday, was part of the magick of the evening, coming to sit by the fireplace we had on and watching with us. She even got to enjoy her own little dessert, which was a strawberry I gave her for a birthday surprise.

christmas lightsAnd while I didn’t have the day off, even cooking and baking all night, it was still filled with magick because I see everything that way. I find all the little special things in everything, that might be hidden by others. And whenever I catch myself feeling stressed, I am able to ease that anxiety by stepping back and reminding myself of the choices I made and the magick within everything I’m experiencing, regardless of how it looks or feels, and the meaning that can assist me in making changes of growth.

People may look at me weird, and they might even get frustrated that I have no explanation to satisfy their desire for proof when I share emphatically what I believe without waiver of trust, in the things that I do.

And that is perfect with me, because I don’t owe any explanations for why I am happy and having fun. And I’m also happy to jump on the train without knowing where it’s going because the power of my belief will always see me safely to exactly where I need to be, likely with a lot of fun surprises along the way.

And guess what? The destinations are where we begin again…

Who wants to know every little detail of what is going to happen anyway? If you knew that, there’d be no fun in living. Life is an experience and if you can trust in your heart and believe in things beyond your mind’s explanation, then you will experience the kind of stuff your dreams are made of and the reasons for your decision to incarnate here.

You always hear people say “I’ll believe it when I see it,” but I’ve always believed as Wayne Dyer shares, “You’ll see it when you believe it.”

There is so much power in this shift of perspective, as there always is with anything when you make a slight adjustment in your way of perceiving it.

I’ll leave you today with my two favorite quotes from the Polar Express:

christmas bells“At one time, most of my friends could hear the bell, but as years passed, it fell silent for all of them. Even Sarah found one Christmas that she could no longer hear its sweet sound. Though I’ve grown old, the bell still rings for me, as it does for all who truly believe.” 

“One thing about trains: It doesn’t matter where they’re goin’. What matters is deciding to get on.”

Do you still hear the bell? I do.

Wishing everyone a magickal day, however you celebrate, and I hope that your heart opens a little bit more to the possibilities and your imagination expands a little bit more to bring those possibilities into being.

Here is one of my favorite songs that’s from The Polar Express. The first video has clips from the movie. The second has the lyrics, as I feel when you see, and sing the words yourself, it has more impact. It doesn’t matter if you celebrate Christmas or not, and it’s not about “just” any certain day of the year either. The meaning of the words is valuable all year long.

Elf Lobby Blocks Iceland Road Project

Yesterday, I shared this post with my faery friend, Laura and she did a great write-up of the main points, which you’ll find at the link. I wanted to wait until today to share, since this Eve, for many who believe, is when our elf friends will be working their magick with Santa. Christmas Eve is an enchanted time and what better way to celebrate than with 62% of the population of Iceland who believes that elves at least might exist. Here’s a great post, providing yet another reason to love Iceland. I hope to visit there in the future. ❤

Laura Bruno's Blog

Oh, those Icelanders and their elves! This headline appeared in Sunday’s edition of The Guardian (thanks, Tania!):

“Elf lobby blocks Iceland road project

Supreme court to rule on case brought by Friends of Lava, who cite environmental impact of highway and effect on elf culture”

The article details the complex debate among environmentalists, elf-communicators, politicians and would-be highway builders. Although road projects have been halted before due to elf concerns, this one threatens to go right through an “Elf Church,” and so it’s raised particular concerns in a country where an estimated 62% of the population believes that elves at least might exist. One of my favorite excerpts:

“Terry Gunnell, a folklore professor at the University of Iceland, said he was not surprised by the wide acceptance of the possibility of elves.

“‘This is a land where your house can be destroyed by something you can’t see (earthquakes)…

From the Mouth of a Child – My Favorite Statement of 2013

kaleToday, or rather this eve, is one of those enchanted times I remember as a little girl and carry that magick in my heart always and all year round. I find myself singing Christmas songs no matter the time of year, especially the ones from my favorite stop-motion animations like Rudolph, The Year Without a Santa Claus, Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town, etc.

I’ll always be a child at heart and no matter how many times I see those movies, it’s like the first time.

So it’s no wonder that one of my favorite statements of 2013 comes from a little girl I overheard this weekend at the closure of this year. There have been a lot of profound messages and moments of inspired realizations throughout the year, but because this one is so simple and yet has so many layers of depth to it, and of course because it comes from a child, it makes it all that much more profound and memorable.

throwing rocksSo I felt to share it with you, as you reflect on the closure of one year’s door opening into another.

If nothing else, it’s sure to give you a giggle. 😉

Straight from the mouth of babes, comes remarkable and insightful statements that inherently have wisdom beyond their years and will surprise you. The beauty of these statements is that these children simply are speaking purity and truth, not knowing anything other than this, because they have yet to have their open channel from Source obscured with conditioning.

This weekend as we were hiking, we came across a father and his young son and daughter (likely both around the ages of 5 – 7. The son had picked up some rocks and started throwing them over the side of the hill, as we passed by. The father said to his son, “Do you remember what I said about throwing rocks?” And something to the effect of reminding him not to do that.

eating kaleAnd before the little boy could answer, his sister (who was younger than him) said to her brother:

“Instead of throwing rocks you should eat kale.”

LOL!! I LOVE this! What depth of meaning this simple and seemingly arbitrary statement implies, as to an understanding she already has a hold of at such an early age.

I immediately giggled and asked Dave if he heard what she said. He asked me to repeat it and I told him. He said, “That’s what I thought she said, but it was so surprising that I thought I’d heard wrong.”

I said, “Nope, you heard right and that was the beauty of what she said.”

The family went on to have a very interesting and meaningful discussion we could hear for a little while, until our faster pace distanced a hill between us.

Maybe it’s just me and Dave, but we both said this was our favorite thing we’ve heard in a long time because it was so innocent and pure, yet powerful.

Rather than explain what I took away from the meaning of her statement, I’d rather it sit with you, as I think it’s more valuable to explore things for yourself with curiosity and reflection, so that you can arrive at answers that speak YOUR truth.

But I do indeed love the message of her statement, as we celebrate the light of this holiday season and welcome a new year of possibilities and change.

Wishing you much peace, compassion, and love today and always. However you choose to celebrate the holidays, I hope it is a joyous and heart-opening experience.

Speaking of which, a quick shout out to my precious “Joy” who also celebrates her 10th birthday today – also a shining example of purity, joyous love, gentle power, tenderness, serene wisdom, and childlike laughter and wonder.

Metacine Therapy – Interview with Sound Healer, Shane Chunephisal

shane-chunephisal1As promised, today I’m sharing an inside peek at another of our healing arts visionaries who is weaving this co-creative experience with us – Shane Chunephisal.

I had the honor of meeting Shane this past September at the event, “A Night of Creative Compassion” at the Animal Advocacy Museum in Pasadena, CA  – an evening that celebrated and showcased a fusion of music, song, film, poetry, photography, painting and more.

shane-and-i-at-eventShane was there to share his gifts of sound healing, while I was sharing my paintings, and of course a cosmic collision unfolded between us, as we’d soulfully planned. 🙂

1235506_10151403672977465_2We shared great vegan food and conversation before the festivities of the evening began and the rest is history.

Since our meeting, many exciting things have evolved for both of us, including our coming together for the upcoming retreat weekend in Laguna Beach, CA this March 2014.

As shared, Shane will be our on-site Meta-Sense Sound Bath Extraordinaire providing beautiful and powerful crystal healing bowl experiences daily, as well as our resident therapist who will be available during free times to offer all shane8types of body work, including crystal healing, sound therapy, and integrated energy therapy, as another option to your weekend experiences.

For more details on this weekend, including the day-to-day experiences and how Shane’s beautiful offerings will weave into our magickal weekend, see the schedule and retreat information here:

Reiki Renewal Retreat – Spring Equinox in Laguna Beach, California

Since everything is frequency, I find sound healing to be one of the most powerful and immediate ways to shift things. Sound is vibration, which is a function of energy – energy being what the Universe IS. I’ll write more about this in a future post, but for today I’m excited to have Shane share about his experiences and insights on this.

shane9I find Shane to be such an exuberant, loving, compassionate, and joyous light who exudes service from every cell of his body. I hope you enjoy learning more about him, his unfolding journey, and find some inspiration in following your own callings in life, from his sharing.

Shane Chunephisal Bio:

Shane is the Owner of Metacine Therapy, now located in Santa Barbara, CA, as well as a Sound Healer and Body Work Therapist. He is gifted in offering an assortment of health and wellness services to provide support at the deepest of levels for overall well being. These include: Bodywork (full body Swedish, Deep Tissue, Chiropractice, Trigger Point, and Sports Massage Therapy), Sound Healing, Chakra Balancing, Crystal Alignment, Guided Meditation, and Metaphysical therapy.

Interview with Shane Chunephisal:

shane15Tania: You and I only recently met (in this life) in early September of this year where we both were offering our services and work to “A Night of Creative Compassion” celebration of the arts and fundraiser for Farm Sanctuary, however it was as if we’ve known each other forever and were continuing each other’s thoughts. We were just in synch and aligned with the same resonance and focuses. The reason I bring this up is because I think it’s a good way to delve into the work you do and its focused intent, in terms of resonant frequencies. So, that being said, what do you attribute this instant resonance we, and many, share nowadays, to? In other words, what is this “click” we are all starting to feel and how does that translate for you and your life?

Shane: Since I was young, I have always had this innate ability to connect and vibrate with spirits of all different ages and paths. As I have accepted and embraced this path as a healer, I have come to a better understanding of where this connection possibly originates. The “clicking” that instantly happens, I believe, is from knowing one another in previous lives throughout our journeys in the infinite realms of life experiences. The ability to “know” someone whom you just met, that feeling of “you two have met before” is something that cannot be denied in its truth if both people feel that way. I feel it’s a resonance between spirits that they have been one another before, experienced memories together, learned and created magic that profoundly influenced and changed them. I have always felt honored being able to experience this vibration with people instantly from first breath and always wondered why it happened.

shane20These experiences have influenced my life because as I have embraced my path I am reminded of WHY my spirit came back and what their reflections teach me about the wisdom of allowing my truest self to flow through. I believe these spirits we “click” with are a reminder of the work we were set out to do when we chose with Source/God to come back into this life experience and make the choices we flow and unfold into.

Tania: When did you first realize you had a gift with energy work and crystals? Was it something you experienced when a child, but didn’t draw upon until later in life? Or was there something in particular, or an experience that took place, that triggered your journey into body, energy, and sound healing work?

Shane: I have always been intuitive since I was young, but it wasn’t until Dec. 2011 that I came to a greater understanding for the potential of my intuitive abilities and development of my gifts. I was challenged by a psychic friend to give him a reading. At first, I was very apprehensive and conflicted in attempting to give him a read because I had no idea what to do. I trusted in my abilities and logically broke down the intuitive framework of how to give a psychic reading. What happened during my experience, I realized many months later, was a Kundalini awakening that forever changed the rest of my life.

Afterwards, it took seven challenging and arduous months to heal and align my energy while getting a better understanding of what happened.  Seeking knowledge about chakras, crystals, energy work, and sound healing assisted my path in self-healing and as I began to blend together these tools for the work I was meant to do, I found my path to embrace and accept being a healer.

shaneTania: What do you love most about working in the energy fields with people? And what in particular has drawn you to work with the Quartz crystal bowls?

Shane: I enjoy working with energy fields because of the tools I use that can affect, influence, and recalibrate the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual frequencies. By addressing this in healing sessions, my energy and healing can be focused into a direct and penetrating flow to dislodge mental programming, emotional blockages, deep core wounds and anything the client seeks to heal from, to allow and call in their highest and truest self in the session.

What I love most about my work and affecting their fields, is being able to influence a person’s experience to feel balanced, whole, and complete, to give them the peace of mind, if even for an instant in the moment, that everything will be ok. In our hectic and fast paced lives we often need that reassurance, the quiet, still breath of calm and tranquility. I enjoy sharing my gifts with the world to achieve such states of consciousness quickly and effectively.

shane6One of these gifts are the quartz crystal bowls, which called to me in my path of healing. The instruments I have dedicated myself to have always found me. With that said, after experiencing my first sound bath, I knew I had to purchase my own set. Attending the sound baths, focusing on breathwork and meditation to balance/realign the chakras after my kundalini awakening, I soon realized how I could apply the crystal bowls to my own healing practices.

I feel that the bowls are the greatest expression of purity in tonal vibrations and I became immediately attracted to them. Vibrating at a frequency of 99.9% purity with a 432hz frequency, you just can’t go wrong. Learning the synergy of my guided meditations, crystals, and singing bowls led me to a great synthesis of healing modalities to use as my medium of expression for my work.

They have allowed me to express myself more fully in a conscious and mindful state, but also to keep myself in balance with the vibrations of my higher-self, as I flow through my life experience. Utilizing them has allowed me to channel more of the manifestations for the greatest good of abundance and prosperity that my life’s purpose is meant to unfold.

shane5Tania: What do you believe is so powerful about sound healing and how can it benefit people?

Shane: I believe sound healing to be one of the greatest tools because of how influential vibrations are in our daily experience. Everything in this universe has a frequency and it can have an effect on our energy. Some of these energies create imbalances, blockages, behavioral patterns, and the list goes on. Humans process EVERYTHING going on, whether conscious or unconscious.  And in this day and age we rarely give enough attention to address the over-activity of our daily experience. By using sound healing to release and purge these negative energies, our vibrations and frequencies can more purely flow from our chakra centers so that we can better align ourselves with what God/Universe/Source has in store for us in our life experience.

Tania: Like many healing arts visionaries, you have created a synergy of combining your talents and heart loves into a multi-dimensional offering of “integrative” services. Do you feel that this is the wave of the future for people? – creating new “jobs”, redefining “work”, integrating many elements to create an alchemical experience, and basically creating flow by following where experiences and energies take us? And if so, please explain.

shane3Shane: I truly believe that the integrative synthesis of our healing arts is the wave of the future. The segmentation of these modalities for every practitioner that learns them would be only detrimental to the community as a whole. It has been to my understanding that the more people learn in the different circles of the paths of life, the more the fractals of sacred geometry can be invoked to allow the flower of life to unfold in their life’s purpose.

As I have embarked on this path, I have encountered more and more spirits who are skilled and talented in not just one modality of healing. But rather draw from so many different paths that make up their medium of expression.

I believe it is a necessity for every practitioner to follow the flow of what draws them to it and to whole-heartedly embrace their interest and curiosity.

Tania: What are some of your favorite things clients or people you know that you’ve provided your amazing Meta-Sense Sound Baths to (yes, I can say amazing, since I experienced one), have shared about the experience and benefits/results received?

shane11Shane: In the almost 2 years of performing more publicly, as well as in private sessions, the many things that clients and attendees have remarked as the results/benefits of my healing work, are a tremendous sense of release, purging, and acceptance/embracement of past wounds, vibrations, or blockages. The feedback from people circulate around this theme that has always struck a deep cord in me. This feeling of knowing that I have helped people become more whole and complete, to let go of their past grievances and accept their power fully, of who they are and who they are meant to become in this life experience. I am honored to know I can have such effects on people.

One great remark I have found from other people has been the energy of inspiration that people find in my work. It has always perplexed me why people would find my work inspirational, as I never made the choice to do this work to be an inspiration to others. I chose to share my healing because I felt like I was called to, in the hopes that others would vibrate with it as well and would benefit from what I had to do to myself, to properly heal and align my energy/frequencies. To offer that to others in service of them, has been my ultimate goal, and I am glad to know I can do this with great vulnerability, trust, and servitude to the community.

Tania: You also offer extensive body and energy work as well. What do you enjoy about this and do you feel that working with crystals and/or combining sound healing has increased the effects and depth of the service you provide?

Shane: I have been a massage therapist since I was little. My parents would get me to massage them after coming in from doing yard work or the usual chores around the house. It wasn’t until I was in my teenage years that I began exploring more the depths of my ability to affect the physical vessel with my healing touch. I have always been an moon roomintuitive healer, as the body has always “spoken” to me in a way that goes beyond verbal communication. When it became apparent that I should pursue bodywork as a career, I decided that it was time to finally accept my call as a healer and learn how to utilize my gifts in a more focused nature.

By accepting this path a little more than 2 years ago, I had never considered using bodywork in combination with crystal and sound healing.  To be honest, I never considered combining them because they seemed mutually exclusive. As I reflected on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies, I found that combining them would offer an even deeper and more profound experience in healing than each modality on its own.

By relaxing the physical vessel, it would allow the mental and emotional bodies an easier channel to release and purge, which would ultimately allow more of the spiritual realm to be called in during sessions. The crystal healing became energetic sponges for negative vibrations, while the sound healing amplified the healing process of clearing out blockages and negative resonances. Combining them with guided meditation, a unique experience for healing the body, mind, and spirit was created through my experimentation.

shane2There are many things I have enjoyed by interlacing these healing modalities together. One thing I greatly enjoy is the amount of success and enjoyment people have given me as their feedback of how they feel after each session. To know that I have been able to assist them in breaking through to feel more complete or whole, is a great honor to hold in someone’s experience.

Tania: I love the name you use to describe what you do – Metacine Therapy – can you explain what this means to you?

Shane: The name “Metacine Therapy” came to me as I was developing my intuitive abilities and learning different forms of healing modalities. It came to me when I was thinking about what real “medicine” was.

In this day and age of pharmaceutical drugs coming up with medications for every disease known to man, why are we having such a big problem with medications that are unnatural. Was there a better way to assist the body in its healing?

My thoughts focused on this idea/concept about a lifestyle that included good nutrition, exercise, bodywork, energywork, and meditation. These 5 things would be the only things you need to help assist the body in maintaining its natural flow and deal with any negative energy that came from your life experience. And then I thought to myself…. “This is real medicine.” And so I decided to put a little bit of a flip on the word “medicine” since most people when asked if they like taking their “meds”, don’t like to. So I decided to rename “medicine” into “metacine” to better reflect the metaphysical awareness of our life experiences.

Tania: Is there one thing (or you can share a couple if you have more) that really stands out to you in your life that made a huge impact on how you were going to start living from this place of service, you so obviously are?

shane10Shane: There are many facets to my experience that I have learned that have revealed deeply ingrained truths that have kept me pursuing this path of service. I have learned that by accepting one’s power, and releasing the deep core wound of being inadequate has helped me tremendously. The mantra of “I am Enough” has been a cornerstone in allowing me to maintain my work and to keep it flowing.

It has taught me that the breath, holds every intention, conscious and unconscious, that creates your reality and whatever you seek to create for your life experience. And that by taking voluntary control of this action, can alter so many different states from the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual realms.

One truth that I have learned and been exercising daily, is that of unconditional love. To love without expectation and to do everything that serves your greatest good without any thought of getting something back in return has granted me the humility in my service towards others.

shane11Exercising vulnerability in every action and breath has been a great addition to my practice for understanding how and why to do things that I feel are necessary and obligatory for my path as it moves ahead to the future of NOW.

To live a life that focuses more on intuition than logic, has been quite challenging at times, but to properly facilitate that, one must have the conviction to exercise discipline to trust the faith that fuels your belief that everything you seek to manifest in life will be provided by Source/God, with your intentions that it serve your greatest good. This is the best energy you can set for yourself, as you create and discover your path that leads to your destiny in this life.

One difficult challenge and trial I have faced since my kundalini awakening has been learning to embrace, accept, and love the shadow within. The shadow has been what has fueled my ability to come into the light and is the source of my ability to do my work. It was in this choice to conquer it, to embrace its energy, that allows me to spread that wisdom of how to face it, accept it, and transmute the energy to create something more powerful than what it represents.

shane14I believe full-heartedly that humans exist because of love, that love is the binding force of our universe. That by taking the suffering and pain we endure, and transmuting it into something more powerful, this is the true definition of love and the greatest source of strength and ability to manifest what I seek in life. From a place of servitude for others, it is my hope that they may vibrate with the choices I made for myself in conquering the negative vibrations and frequencies within, to create the unconditional love for all those around me who I would come to encounter, influence, and share it with.

I have learned to live more objectively rather than subjectively which has taught me to learn the wisdom and knowledge that is to be gained in every experience and every reflection you meet in your daily flow. It has properly tuned my energy to handle these fluctuations and imbalances of how to navigate the turbulent ocean-of-life experiences.

The greatest truth I have learned that has been reinforced constantly in my life has been to always live a life true to who you are. That to do anything less would be a disservice to who you are meant to be. To not fear who you are meant to become, but to get out of your own way, to let the ego go, so that the higher self can better facilitate your experience of who you are to become in this experience.

And in these truths, I found that being aware of the greatest challenge I believe we face in life, has taught me to detach (in an accepting and embracing way, not an apathetic way) from everything we care about in this life, as difficult as it may be. To not be attached to anything because nothing truly belongs to you, and that in accepting this, allows the greatest understanding of what is meant to be my flow for moving forward on this path towards my destiny.

Tania: What do you feel your life purpose is and what do you do each day to keep yourself focused and continually evolving on that path?

shane10Shane: My life’s purpose is to assist people in becoming whole and embracing their power. To provide them a space of authenticity to facilitate their energy of becoming who they are meant to be. To properly balance and align their energies, purge and release any negative blockages, and to call in their highest selves so that they are more capable of pursuing the life they truly are meant to live. By recalibrating their frequencies that better vibrate with their highest selves, I can assist the embracement, acceptance, and conviction to live the truest life they choose for themselves.

I practice, every day, the conscious and unconscious meditations that reinforce the mantras that manifest the trust and belief of conviction, faith, and discipline to be vulnerable enough to accept my power by embracing my shadow. Learning the humility of asking for help that provides the space to allow and receive energy from those who would be willing to share the unconditional love for everyone and everything. Living a life of service and finding the energy to self-reflect will continually focus my purpose on this evolving path.

Tania: What would you tell others that feel disconnected, lost, or are yearning to understand their own calling?

Shane: The one thing I would tell people is to never give up and to find a way. There is always a solution to even the darkest of situations. Give up what other people think of you and embark on a path that is meant for yourself and your greatest fulfillment. Let go of any fears, judgment, worries, and concerns. Have the courage and bravery to walk/fall into the abyss with nothing but your own light, and to exercise the gifts you feel are most important to you in the fulfillment of your purpose.

Life is too short to be anyone but yourself, and I feel we, as humans, get caught up in what our parents, society, and friends want us to be. The greatest gift you can give the world is yourself, so why not embody the truest form of you?

One thing that has been a cornerstone, is that… “the one person you shouldn’t lie to, which normally is the first person we do it frequently to, is ourselves.” With that said, be honest with yourself, no matter how much it hurts. Face your shadow and embrace it. It has made you who you are. Don’t live life with regrets, as every choice and decision you have made up until this very moment you are reading this, has shaped who you are. To deny these experiences, is to deny the very existence of who you are and who you are meant to become.

Life isn’t about failure or accomplishment. Life is about risks. Life is about doing. So do you. And be proud. Because you are enough. Always. In All ways.

Tania: Are there any dreams or visions you have for what you would like to create and share with others?

shane19Shane: In the future, as I am manifesting the unfolding of my experience, I envision a part of my path several years down the road of creating a sound bath experience that stimulates all of the senses. This is where the term “meta-sense” sound bath came from in my seeking to create it. As I have gotten out of my own way in the past two years to let my highest self channel through, I have been holding to this vision, while trusting in its process of unfolding.

One part of my vision I see is traveling the world, if only for 6 months to a year, to embark on a journey of self-creation and discovery as I go from country to country, leading workshops, and sharing the healing vibrations of my art to all those who would be brought into my path and be influenced by my light. I recently have been feeling to accomplish this vision soon, as it would greatly increase the understanding of my truest path in life.

I look forward to what the future of Now holds for me, and I welcome it with open arms. Calling forth all the abundance, prosperity, and opportunity for this manifestation of vision be provided from Source/God.

Return of Light – Winter Solstice, Candle Quartz & The Truth of You

candle-quartzToday marks another new cycle and change of seasons as we welcome in the Winter Solstice (for the Northern Hemisphere and Summer Solstice for the Southern Hemisphere) of 2013. This brings the end of the old year’s cycle, as we begin anew, and provides a supportive time to make leaps in consciousness by moving within to shine your light, as the light lessens on this shortest day/longest night of the year (or longest day of the year for you Southern Hemisphere folks).

We’ve been continuing to clear in preparation for new and more natural ways of living from our highest and likely you’ve been experiencing heightened awareness of all things in your life through varying ways of experiencing these, relative to each, and coming to feel more self alignment and merging taking place.

This is creating an upsurge of excitement, as you feel the energy field welcoming you into your truth more than ever.

Where ever you are in your journey, is perfect, and likely you have that sense, even if moving through the “ick” still, that there’s something different this time in the experience.

I simply would encourage you to let go, do what ever you can to maintain your own inner balance and harmony so that you can vibrate at your own relaxed and natural personal frequency, and compassionately realize that you are different than everyone else and therefore you only need to exercise your own sovereign free will and lovingly allow them to do the same.

More and more you will be experiencing, embodying, and emanating so much more light, which is not to be feared, but to be celebrated.

Through this Winter Solstice “gateway” you can be mindful of this turn of seasons to be more soul driven and may feel called to take some moments to honor this flowing change of life cycles. Perhaps creating a special sacred space or ritual act to honor the “return of light” that this Solstice is reminding us.

Candles and crystals come to mind when I think of ways you might symbolically create that space, or perhaps simply envisioning and imagining (imagination is a powerful tool) the light and inner fire of your heart and soul expanding and filling your entire body and emanating out and joining with the light of our Great Central Sun, allowing yourself to take up more space and be who you really are.

candle-quartz3This calls to mind Candle Quartz (sitting with me right now), which is a newer crystal friend (from Madagascar) in my own experience that feels so perfectly aligned for this day and the new energies in general. She instantly had called my attention despite, and because of, her imperfect perfections – more inconspicuous, natural, and with an opening chip at her point which is self-healed, creating a doorway for her inner light to flow out of. She reminded me of the importance of standing in the knowingness of your divinity EXACTLY AS YOU ARE.

Since we are talking about that “return of light”, reflected from within by embracing all of who you are, these crystals came to mind.

I have found these crystals to carry such a sweet energy that is like that inner, loving glow, which has power in its grace and gentle tenderness. But it also feels very aligned with our need to shine brighter than ever, and can be a perfect companion to support that with loving nudges.

Candle Quartz is a light-bringer for the planet and for those assisting the Earth to change vibration. It brings hope and also your guardian angel closer, highlights your soul purpose, enhances intuition, and attracts abundance – bringing a sense of abundance in every day life, opening one spiritually and energetically to abundance and prosperity.

It is also good for working in a group, as it radiates love, creating harmony.

Candle Quartz brings healing to the hurt inner child, helps to heal ancestral lines, and karmic inheritance. It dissipates feelings of oppression, depression, and despair, while creating tranquility and confidence.

These sweet crystals teach you that you are never truly alone, when you connect to the core of divine love in your inner being. Independence, heart healing, and feeling good about your body are also benefits to the energy they can support you with.

candle-quartz4Candle Quartz is a stone of insight leading you to a greater knowing and understanding of yourself, as it helps you to look inside and discover who you really are, what your individual mission is, and the path that will assist you with that. It will also illuminate and clarify issues and challenges by transforming uncertainty into hope.

There is also the benefit of increased tranquility they can help you to experience by enhancing your confidence and sensitivity.

If sense of balance is what you’re needing (which we all need more of) it will help to create that sense of balance between the physical and mental, as well as harmonize the higher vibrational energies of the light body. And although Candle Quartz has high energy, they also ground energy so the energy of the higher planes can be brought into reality and every day life, which is excellent for manifesting the spiritual into the physical.

They are very good tools for channeling and they are holders and keys to stored information including Akashic records.  Candle Quartz brings strength, vitality, healing to the heart, and are great for grid work in your sacred or healing space.

Candle Quartz was first found in Madagascar, but some have also been found in Russia. They merge two aspects of quartz together making them embodiments of the best of both worlds – they have a strong main shaft and single point for focusing energy, but also have clusters (many, many tiny points) that have grown around the point so that they can receive and give energy from all directions at once. They derive their name from the fact that they look like a candle that has wax drippings all around it.

This heart stone (which opens, balances, and soothes the heart chakra) is also sometimes known as Pineapple Quartz or Atlantean Lovestar. The latter name comes from their being said to bring ancient knowledge from Atlantis, which you can access through meditation. Legends say that they were given as heart gifts in Atlantis.

It is considered a mysterious crystal with a very gentle, but strong and persistent energy.

You don’t need a Candle Quartz to be a source of light, as you already are and always have been – you just haven’t recognized this. Yet all the things we do symbolically and otherwise, can help us to remember, integrate, and consistently stay in our highest frequency so that we may flow more gracefully with the cycles of life, just as the nature of reality and the Earth does.

However you choose to celebrate this Solstice, I hope you will (if you haven’t already) start celebrating your soul truth by standing in the light of who you are.

We like to provide options that meet different needs and budgets so the week’s pricing is tiered to accommodate. The ARC is for people happy to share dormitory style accommodations (there are 2 separate sex dorms) in adult sized comfortable bunks with shared bathrooms. We highly recommend this experience, as it can be very sitting room overlooking waterconducive to the overall heart-opening and connective energy we create on these retreats. Our experience in running retreats has proved that this can lead to a deeper sense of a communal living experience with deep and bonding new friendships formed. The center has the best sunrise views overlooking the bay and is two minutes from the best beach on the island with stunning sunsets.

ladies shared bunk bedroomThe style of The ARC is beach chic. We have outdoor and indoor dining overlooking the bay.

* The ARC does have wi-fi and there is high speed internet at Bimini Bay as well if you need it, however we highly encourage the journey to be one of switching off from everyday life as much as possible, as truly a way to be in the experience and to go within – a time of nurturing and letting go and to be in our hearts away from everything. Please take advantage of this time away from daily distractions and over-stimulation, as you will get the most of this experience and find yourself more than over-flowing with priceless, blissful, and heart-stimulating experiences.

dolphins arc5Our vision is to provide a meditative and joyful environment to experience the dolphins. Like any wilderness excursion it is important that it be undertaken with awareness and sensitivity. All staff are educated and experienced in the practice of ‘minimal intrusion’. Our intention is always to connect with the dolphins with respect and awareness. We do not feed, chase or do anything that might disrupt their natural behavior. Only at the dolphins’ invitation do we interact with them. It’s a small group, so you are assured the best possible dolphin interaction. You will receive personal facilitation and support.
