While it is hard to look at the inhumanity that occurs, I know it’s important to not bury our heads in the sand and ignore. Dark and heavy subjects are so difficult to write! I choose to look on the positive things in life, but I know there is a dark side (lower dense vibrations), and because of that, I strive to help others by raising our vibrations and expanding consciousness. I do this by offering what I write, from listening to and reading what others write, and offering prayers (full of belief that ALL really is well), and by emitting unconditional love, and compassion whenever possible.
I have been one of those people (in an attempt to keep my vibration high), that ignores drama and tragedy—at least that’s my desire (admittedly, not always possible).
Now, as of Feb. 29th of this year, I have been drawn to the Shamanic path that includes observing the dark, as well as the light. Previous article about this here.
I don’t know, of course, where my shamanic path will lead, but as long as it enables me to expand my ability to help others and offer the most compassion I can muster, I feel that it will be a good pursuit. ❤️🦋🌀🙏
Yes, (winking)… Shamans take that “Rise” shit literally.
I wish we could ALL drop the word “Dark” and replace it with the word, “Dense.” Density of vibration (lower vibration) is typically what is being referred to when someone is talking about a painful topic.
When one describes a color as dark, that really has to do with color saturation, or the absence of light. But too often people infer that when anything is dark, it’s wrong, bad, sinful, painful, and so on.
I observe the same color, in low light, and the color itself doesn’t change, only my perception of the color changes.
Expansive (and unifying) Reminders
“Don’t place religion above God.” (I don’t know why any of us insist on knowing what we know or being “right” about anything, when God only knows.)
As a peacemaker, and a Spiral Sister,
Consciousness, as a topic and in all of its aspects, beckons me to study it further, not out of mere curiosity as much as out of this fantastical question of “where do I stop and you begin?” –and because of my mother, aunt, and grandmother all suffered with Alzheimer’s dis-ease. I am a sleuth of sorts, always and in ALL ways forward-thinking to try and solve the riddle of why we’re here.

About the word. “Love” – you may love someone, (unconditional), or “like,” lust, or infatuation, which many use the word love instead, though it really isn’t love.
Love is patient. Love is kind. All the time, not just when it’s convenient.
Love is caring. Love is being supportive and having another’s back (not back biting).
Love doesn’t require anything. ❤️🦋🌀🙏
The Universe is always (ALL ways) listening!Synchronicity: when you think or do something and someone else shows up in your experience saying or doing the same. Or when you think of someone and within minutes they call you.
A bit about me, your Spiral Sister

My current environment (living off grid on private property), has afforded me the opportunity to really, thoroughly, BE in nature.
My husband and I also live in an RV. We’ve lived in our 38 foot 5th wheel home for 10 years, as of this writing. Initially, we both worked outside the home, but now, we are both home all day, everyday. (I have been working from home for the last 3 years.)
I have had to be a hermit due to COVID-19 too.
So, here’s my little breakdown of what I have learned so far and why I am exploring Shamanism:
I don’t like being bitten by bugs: yellow flies, ants, or other. Do I know they have a right to be here? Yes. Do I know they are food for other creatures? Yes. But I am aggravated when my skin itches and feet, fingers, or toes swell up from the inflammation the bites have caused!
I take a moment and BREATHE.
I try new and different salves.
I make my own salves from Comfrey I have grown. Shamans are said to learn from plants and make nature-based medicines, like balms, tonics and tinctures, and salves, and are focused on documenting and sharing beliefs about herbal remedies for various maladies. Check!
And I am getting better at remembering to apply bug repellent (I have tried many different natural and botanical pest repellents), BEFORE I go outside. Even if I am only goinglring out for 5 minutes!
I have had to accept insects are on this planet for a reason. They do a lot of good!
In our garden, insects turn the soil. They attract birds and pollinators too, which enables our vegetables to grow. ☀️💦🌱
I say again, what you resist, persists!
Take another moment and BREATHE. Change your Energy. ❤️🦋🌀
Every morning for the last few years, I have been doing this shaman-like practice:
I fully bend at the waist and let my hands and arms hang to the floor. As I rise, I raise my hands to the sky and say, “Thank you for all the gifts and blessings (knowings) that I have received from the East” (and do this for each direction, north, south, east, and west while turning my body to stand facing each of those directions).
I thank God above, earth below, my past behind, my future ahead, and the cells of my body within. I thank my parents and ancestors and know ALL are WITH thee (my grandparents name was Withee, and this makes that statement personal for me). I know ALL is WELL. ❤️🦋🌀🙏😘
I then, consciously send LOVE out in all directions: north, east, south, west, above, below, forward, and behind. Unseen and seen. Past, present, and future. Indeed, in ALL directions for the benefit of ALL.
There is nothing to forgive, because there is value in Everything. And Everything Resolves to Gratitude. ❤️🙏
Lately, I have mostly been getting my socializing online. And while I enjoy being online, some people tend to hide behind their keyboard and say things that are disempowering, unsupportive, judgmental, even unkind online that they wouldn’t tell me in person. And that saddens me.
Some of my “Love and Light” friends don’t act like they believe in unifying. They claim to believe in unity, but then they call me, or others names. Name calling is NOT unifying. There, I’ve said it.
And for Christians, one of the most used directives in the Bible is, “If my children,” “When my people,” and so on, do this or that.
God’s children, God’s people are called to be unifying, to serve, and to Love.
For more about this, read my previous article here.
So, yes, sometimes it is loving to leave someone, if you can’t manage to see another’s perspective and be open to growth and change, or muster the self control to be kind. ❤️🙏
What you resist persists
Will we get mad at certain things or people? Probably. But to live a wholly vibrant and fulfilling life, self control (starting with mastering your thoughts and emotions), is your work. Everyone has their own opinions. Let others be. Is it really your job to ruffle feathers?
Consider these quotes:
If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. 🦋
Remember, when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
Every feeling makes a subconscious impression. The dominant of two feelings is the one expressed.
Look at yourself. Are you perfect? And what is perfection about anyway? As I’ve written about before, expand your mind to find perfection in the imperfection.
Life’s an art more than it is a science. The need to be perfect is fear based. There is no perfection in Art.
Shine your light. No judging required. Have a little self control. Timing is Everything. I get that this is a matter of practice.
By its very definition, Love is unconditional. You can’t say, “I love you” and then get mad when your loved one does something you do not like. That would mean you only like that person when they meet your conditions.
You are rarely loving anyone. You like people. You like animals. You don’t love people when they do or say things you don’t like or agree with. It’s a wonder anyone stays married anymore or has children. So much discord.
Try a little patience with those who think different than you. Love is a seed. Let it grow instead of rooting it out or stomping it to death.
You don’t know what’s best for everyone. Nor do you or I know everything. Honestly, none of us will ever know Everything.
Art of Allowing
Because I have had to find a way to actually live my beliefs with a husband who is “constantly under foot” and doesn’t always agree with me in thought, word, or deed (action and timing), I am so glad the Universe brought Law of Attraction and Art of Allowing into my life in 2008.
Now, I am really integrating everything I have learned into my life!
When I get stressed, I stand up, take some deep breaths, exercise, do some yoga or qigong, take a walk, or sing!
Growing living things
I have planted seeds and watched them sprout.
Too much rain washes them out of seeding containers or moves them out of the place where I put them in the garden.
Too little water and the plants die. I am hydrating myself more now too!
I love watching ferns sprout through the dirt and form a delicate spiral. I love ferns and never knew they did that until I walked through the forest enough times to observe them growing.
We all grow through the dirt. ❤️🦋🌀🙏☀️💦🌱
The gratitude and love I feel and send is unconditional. I must send it to those I disagree with, as much or more than to those I agree with, otherwise I am not growing or expanding my consciousness.
I have broken down too. But, for now, I choose to bend as the willow. I choose to rise in growth. I choose to unplug from my phone and rest. I choose to turn, turn, turn. There is a season for ALL things.
Wrapping it up
I’ve written previously about some of my dreams and hypnosis sessions (similar to vision quests that Shamans do) to gain knowledge, direct revelations, and other dimensional guidance and healing.
I use breathwork, solitary time (to include prayer and meditation), fasting, singing, and chanting, like Shamans do. I enjoy drumming, but tend to do it only on my body, instead of an actual drum. I don’t use psychedelic substances, but can reach an altered state of consciousness by meditating.
I communicate with crystals, dirt, sky, stones, trees, and some animals. I know that I am a diviner, with an ability to bring healing to the planet by connecting Heaven and Earth.
Some shamans work with unseen elements within the subtle realms of sound frequencies and light (bodies of light and shadows). And while I know they are there, I am not bold enough to think for a moment that they work with me, though I am grateful for their help should they choose to intervene.
I embrace the ALL of what is wanted along with what is not wanted. The dark and the bright shining light that comes from mindfulness and accepting the sacred geometry within nature. There really is value in Everything.

Even folks who have lived a full life, people with a family, a job, education, or all the material things they could ever hope to want, at certain times in their life, question the point of it all.
If you’re sick, lacking motivation, or just feeling blah (like no one cares about you or what you’re doing), this author suggests that you check out some new information.
Change your focus for a couple hours today and consider a new perspective, which just might lead you to discover some new information to help you feel better.
Sometimes, you just have to shake things up a bit! We all know that, right?
If you’d like to know how some have found more meaning or more peace in their lives, keep reading…
This is an open invitation for you to watch a free movie online and open to some new and different information. You don’t have to change. You can stay the way you are. However, if you’d like to feel better, more peaceful, with new meaning and renewed purpose that could actually prompt you to get motivated and do something different in your life, then why not check this out?
Many ways of living over the years have called out to us to seek a certain “path”, or “way of life” in order that we may have life here and now and live it more abundantly. And many people are just fine, content and happy with that one way. But, if you’re reading this, my bet is that you’re not satisfied for one or many reasons.
So, if like me, you find even one of the following people interesting, if just reading their name on the following list resonates with you for any reason, then you might very well enjoy, or even LOVE The Reality of Truth.

Now, I love Michelle Rodriguez from Avatar, Machete, and the Fast and Furious movies. And I remembered her from the TV series, Lost. She’s always been a tough, super hero-like compelling actress. Yet, even if I didn’t get into The Reality of Truth for any other reason–and I love it for many reasons–I’d have enjoyed it just to see Michelle go on this adventure and get to know her in a more close-up, intimate, and genuine way. I feel I know her as a person now, not only as an actress. I cried when she cried. I laughed when she laughed. She talks candidly and openly about her experience–and it’s palpable.
Maybe you don’t know (or don’t like) one or more of the persons named on the preceding list, but you’re still invited to watch and open your heart and mind to receive. Perhaps, you’ll learn a thing or two that will make watching The Reality of Truth not only worth your time, but enhance your life in a priceless way!
If you’re a skeptic, fine. But, how are you feeling today? Isn’t it worth a few minutes to check it out and see if there’s some useful information of which, you’ve never heard?
The Reality of Truth will connect you with thoughtful, enlightening, and energetic people who are challenging old thought patterns and opening to new awarenesses in order to lead us all into more freedom and more joy than we’ve ever thought possible.
