NEW UPCOMING BOOK... "Dreamweaver: A Step Into Forgotten Realms"
Based on personal experiences of Shamanic Initiation, Dreams, and the Imagination.
This is a book in progress about my personal experiences of Shamanic Initiation, including dreams and the imagination. It is projected for release in 2018.
It was turning out to be an auto biography when I began writing this back in 2012. I later decided to create a story based on my own personal experiences. Something for the next seven generations to learn from and perhaps help guide their own journey inward. So, I recently began revising the five year old rough draft and here I am creating an entirely new story than was originally anticipated.
Upon embarking on writing this, I learned from one of my teachers to practice a mindful exercise and imagine my finished book on the shelf, title and all, and visualize it next to the other books I had already written. After all, if you can imagine it, it is real. And so it is. So, here it is. Unfolding yet complete at the same time. May you enjoy.

"Dreamweaver falls asleep during story time with her Grandfather-- and her adventure’s lead her to precognitive realizations as she moves deeper into the Dreamtime. She begins to remember who she is, and how she has interwoven her future and past. She meets and converses with her Ancestors, Spirit Guides, and the Archangels. Though this journey happens during only one night’s sleep, its power transforms her, and she is never the same."
The journey to realization of the self or embodied enlightenment can be a messy, disorganized, crazy, beautiful, and an ugly adventure all in one. It is not all about love and light, and happy thoughts and feelings, and suddenly a million dollars in the bank, or no need for money at all. That may come and go after the internal struggle subsides- when the room to see that freedom of choice is only a breath away- when the human truly moves out of their own way.
The recognition and acceptance of the shadows and darkness within is much like dying, but without leaving the physical body. The struggle to let go and to know the true self is a similar experience to living at least twenty lifetimes in one. It is a personal road to walk and can be lonely, but what is reassuring is that everyone will come by this way; Even the Archangels... and eventually Spirit.
During the years leading up to the creation of this book I lived many lifetimes and experienced several small deaths until my relationship with myself and a singular identity expanded into a multidimensional understanding. I went through an intense internal cleansing that was extremely challenging to my mind, emotions, and physical body. I was changing like I had never allowed before. Arriving home to myself after lifetimes of distractions and much needed experiences was a welcoming gift. Namaste. Dreamweaver is the result of this recognition of the Kingdom within and moving beyond the limiting human condition of a singular mental viewpoint- beyond time and space where past, present, and future are no longer a burden to overcome or a mystery to be solved. Knowing the All At Once and embracing this new playground of experience through remembering and knowing the self, the Creator within. Reality is much like a cat chasing its tail, but within the imagination the cat moves on to unlimited possibilities unconfined by time and space.
May you and the next seven generations find these words helpful and reassuring for your own personal journey inward. Dream on and stay curious. Much love to you dear one.
