Mastery Work Exercises for Practioners
There is a great deal of change going on in the universe
and the earth is undergoing its own transition and
ascension process. This is an amazing thing to plug into.
Shamanism provides a lot of “of the earth and animals”
connection, and a good way to balance this out is to tune
into planetary energies. This can be done in a simple,
fun way that also adds to your symbol database for
guide/mediumship communication. We want you to be
able to start closing your eyes, reach out and feel planetary
alignments and changes. Sound like too big a task?
It is amazingly simple. Here is how you do it:
We recommend you purchase the book: The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Astrology. Each day you start your meditation by getting centered a bit and then reading the description of the attributes of one planet or one sign or one transit/link (conjunction, trine, opposition). You are not studying to be an astrologer who creates charts. You are allowing yourself to plug into the cosmos. After you read the planet and learn about it, close your eyes, drop back into meditation, reach out with your consciousness to that planet and introduce yourself. Allow yourself to be in its presence. Feel the elements you just learned about it and whatever else it wishes to share. This is a magical exercise.
And it’s as simple as that to lay your foundation. Once you have done this…and it takes at least 29 days (12 signs, 12 planets, about 5 definitions of how planets can interact, one per day maximum)…I recommend you purchase an astrology calendar of some kind that provides the basic aspects for each day. This basic guide will tell you what sign the moon is in, when planets form important angles and connections to each other and the signs it is happening in. After you have learned the planets and signs for yourself, you can take this basic information such as “Mercury trine Saturn”…reach into that “situation” and get your own energetic “read” on what this will bring. You will find that this will increase your connection at a planetary level as well as broaden your mediumship/intuitive abilities. Human/society training has many conditioned to think a single course of study is a self-contained "island" for mastery that requires 20 years of practice to deserve access to. But this is not so. Remember that every exercise gives you direct access if done respectfully and will actually feed into the building blocks of your abilities at other levels too as well.
Connecting thru Astrology & the Planets
Using Kinesiology as a Communication Gateway
Using Kinesiology can assist us in connecting to our higher self through
the bodies electrical system to make decisions and communicate with
Spirit. What enhances our body, mind and soul makes us strong.
Together, our body, mind and soul create a holistic environment that,
when balanced, is strong and solid. If something enters that environment
and negates or challenges the balance, the environment is weakened.
That strength or weakness registers in the electrical system, and it can
be discerned through a muscle-testing technique called kinesiology.
If you have already worked with this method and have an opinion about it,
we invite you to wipe the slate clean and view the use of this technique from a totally new perspective and function. For an intuitive or medium it can be used as a launching point to deepen your personal communication gateways. Practicing this continually for a little while helps you learn to focus and “reach into” things with your intuition. It's not a tool that you necessarily need to use forever as a crutch, but is fantastic to have in your "toolbox" for days when it's the easiest way to achieve accuracy.
As with any technique and tool, we recommend you practice using it at least 5 times a day for at least 60-90 days. You are creating muscle-memory and learning to feel the difference as well as watching to experience outcomes from following the guidance so that you will know when you are truly connected to highest guidance, and when you are not. This is like learning to play the piano. Patience with it can yield a new level of trust in yourself and connection to the universe.

This exercise is designed to show you an access
point through the merger of multiple metaphysical
disciplines and your personal abilities…a way to
step through your inter-dimensional, internal “gate.”
No more is it practical to study just one course
like mediumship or shamanism and think that these
are meant to stand alone in use. In truth, your
personal abilities span far beyond this human
concept and with lightning speed spirit can speak to
you by using your clairvoyance, clairsentience,
psychic, mediumistic and shamanistic abilities nearly
all at once. This next octave of mastery and merger
is accessible to you through simple application and
solo practice working directly with your guides. You
don’t need to find a classroom or outside instructor to
What you will need for this exercise:
- Favorite music on a portable player - action oriented - good/faster beat - uplifting lyrics
- A place to walk that’s got more nature, less people and is in a safe area. Don’t walk too close to buildings or in a place where you have to constantly check traffic, etc. You need a safe uninterrupted walking path or track.
- Protective clothing and sunscreen - pay attention to the elements and select a day and time to do this when the outside conditions and energies are supportive and more favorable rather than assaulting and combative. (Go to our Practitioners Guide - Understanding Nature's New Struggle section for a more in depth discussion on this.)
How to Engage:
The point of this exercise is to allow the beat of the music synchronized with deliberately paced rhythmic power-walking to set the stage for merger with your guides. This is a faster-paced walk with deep breathing.
- Begin to walk and align and connect with the music.
- Reach with your energies through intention to first connect your spirit and power to the power that you have the greatest affinity for. (the core of the earth, the central sun, a point in the upper atmosphere, etc.) Picture a vortex opening through you that connects deeply into the universe and feeds you power. Be with that connection for a little while. Allow the merger fully. Breathe deeply.
- Reach for one of your power animals/animal guardians/spirit guides in the form of an animal. You are asking for them to appear (clairvoyantly not physically).
- Let the vision become what it will. Though your pace will stay constant, the vision may be to “run” or "fly" with them. Allow yourself to “shift” as a shaman/shape shifter does, within the vision, if that is the relationship you have with your animal. Feel them merge with you. Allow their power and your to become one.
- You may encounter more than one animal guide on your walk to merge and spend time with.
- Your visions could take you to other places communications and times. Allow whatever comes to come. Remember that you are always in control and may ask that it stop at any time if you become overwhelmed by it.
This exercise will strengthen all of your personal communication gateways with spirit. Remember to care for your physical body by not getting lost in it and pushing too hard. There is a lot of energy that moves through you when you engage in this way, and you will need to take a shower/cleanse and rest to allow the building blocks to align when you are finished.
The Manifestation Process
Manifestation is not just ask-and-the-law-of-attraction-brings-it as many teachings simplify it into being. We provide for you here several important tools to expand your mastery on this subject. This includes a printable sheet that includes a diagram and outline of all elements that feed into the manifestation process. And the second is a worksheet to show you the formula to predict the outcome of a decision.
Though this topic might seem to be less metaphysical than some of the others, it is actually one of the most important keys to an array of critical connection points for any intuitive. If you are running negative mental-emotional behavior patterns with regard to food, or eating elements that are not in harmony with your physical mechanism, then the ensuing war can cause imbalances that will have a direct effect on your abilities as an intuitive to connect with spirit and the universe. Whether you are finding yourself dealing with health challenges or not, we encourage you to initiate the mastery-work exercises provided in the Health Alternatives Section of the website. In doing so, you will be opening yourself to expansion of your intuitive abilities in often surprising and wonderful ways.
Opening Dimensional Gateways
This mastery work exercise provides you with a
wonderful opportunity to merge altered-state work
with the use of color in the medium of acrylic
painting on canvas. This is not an intellectual
exercise, but instead an exercise in complete
surrender, so you don't have to carry any artistic
ability...but you very well may discover that you
are an excellent channel.
So many serious topics surround intuitives at this
time on earth, and finding ways to connect with,
make manifest, and bring through positive energies
that both protect and promote balance is what this
exercise is actually for. When a powerful intuitive steps into altered state and channels energy with intent, but not attempting to control the outcome, then the truest of mastery occurs. Interdimensional energies are accessed and a "door" is opened. And when this open door is quite literally brought through the channel and captured in acrylic paint and color on canvas, those paintings forever resonate with that energy. They become vortexes that can pull negative or difficult energies out of a room, or work in the other direction to bring energies of peace or healing back into a room from other dimensions and planes of existence. Others come to life to carry the intent or energy of an element such as fire or water; or the assistance of a nature spirit. And there are yet others that work galactically to bring in universal energies of creation, climax, alignment or awareness.
Setting up the Intellectual "Ground-Rules" & Realizing the Power of the Exercise
In order to embark on this exercise correctly, setting up some intellectual intentions/ground-rules is very important so that you can quiet the mind.
- You are not becoming an artist.
- What you paint isn't supposed to look like or turn into anything specific.
- If you're thinking about it, you're not channeling in pure form
- You are not here to plan, dictate or draw anything.
- You will not be calling forth visions to be painted.
- You never need to show it to anyone, and you shouldn't plan to.
- You can throw it away when you're finished if you don't like it. It's not a big financial expense.
- You are not allowed to sell it or turn this part of your life into a commercial enterprise.
You will notice as you read these 'rules' that they are very much potential blockage-points.
- Seeking the approval or permission of others for your work
- Grasping at a potential commercial enterprise to make money
- Attempting to control the outcome
- Fear that you aren't talented or artistic
- Worried that you are wasting your money (fear of lack)
- Impatience to get to a desired outcome or specific production
Your 'job' is to rid yourself of all of these thoughts, plans or beliefs and become a pure channel.
(Hint: if you're paying attention, you will notice that this is one of the most powerful exercises for mastery you will ever be asked to do because of its requirement for total surrender and release of an array of negative-pattern thoughts and behaviors.)
Whatever the outcome, purpose or job of a painting is to be, it is not for the you (the channel) to dictate or envision in advance. Instead, by following some very simple steps, you can initiate and then allow the creation to come through you in it's purest form.
Step I - Select your Canvas
Go to the art store and use your intuition to guide you in first selecting a stretched/framed blank canvas. There are many different sizes and shapes, and I recommend selecting a size that is between 20 x 20 inches and 30 x 30 inches. That will give you freedom of movement in painting. As a platform medium moves to conduct and build energy, so will you in this exercise. As you make your selection, notice how your internal guidance (feeling in your solar plexus) gives you clear 'yes' or 'no' direction when you view each possible shape. At this point, the purpose for the creation is already engaged and the mathematical dimensions will be as important as the colors.
Step II - Select your Paint Colors
Go to the acrylic paints aisle of the art store and again let your full internal guidance/intuition engage. No need to buy expensive paints or large quantities (2-4 ounces per color is a good starting size). Feel into the colors and purchase at least six that you are attracted to. Don't think logically. You will be so drawn to specific colors that it will actually feel like an intense craving. Also purchase a few inexpensive plastic paint cups to put your paint in while actually painting.
Step III - Your Brush, Other Materials & Painting-Space Set-up
Go to the Home/Hardware store and buy a 1.5 inch ANGLED paint brush or two. You don't need to buy the expensive ones at the art store, and I highly recommend the angled brush style because it's going to give you great effect naturally. You will also need to purchase a large 9 foot x 12 foot drop cloth canvas. You are going to tack this to a wall somewhere in your house in a room that you designate as your painting-space. If you really enjoy painting after you've tried this, then you may choose to invest in a professional painting easel if you don't like the wall-backdrop method. When you get home and set up your space, you're simply going to tack up the drop canvas to the wall with thumb tacks and then put two even-leveled nails in the wall at eye-shoulder height in the center to hang your stretched blank canvas right in the middle. Be sure to leave at least 2-3 feet of drop-cloth canvas on the floor to catch drips.
Step IV - Prepare Yourself & the Music
Set aside time on a day when you have no time limit and no interruptions. Take a shower to clear yourself energetically. Turn off your phone. Use your intuition to select some music that works well for you in meditation. You should also select some music with more power and beat for actual painting. (Some paintings are born to angelic choirs and others to rock-and-roll.) Give yourself an array of choices. Lay your paints out in front of you.
Step V - Become the Channel
Turn on the music, sit and enter into deep meditation/altered state. Sit for as long as you're inspired to and remember you are NOT looking for visions or ideas about what to paint. Your job is surrendering to an altered state that includes NO thought. And when you are ready, without 'shifting' all the way back to total consciousness, go to the paints and pick three to work with. Put a medium amount of each color side-by-side in the same plastic-palette container. You are ging to allow them on the paint brush at the same time naturally to merge in sweeping strokes. From this point forward it's all relaxation, movement and allowing. Dip your brush in the colors and paint them on the canvas in whatever movements feel good. Feel and move to the music. Remember you are NOT there to paint any specific image. You are just bringing through energy and allowing it to impress itself onto the canvas. Enjoy the colors. Feel them, breathe them, connect with them, relax into them until you feel like you're falling into heaven. Your hand and intuition will guide you to know where to paint. Step away, turn around break your focus if it becomes mental. Breathe deeply and focus your eyes on something else in the room for a moment. Then turn around and step back in when you're re-balanced into altered state. Think of it as a dance of creation. You will know when you're finished.
Step VI - Placement & Purpose
I will tell you that 8 times out of 10, after I finish with a painting I have several humorous reactions. As the energies brought through are very powerful, necessary and frequently new to me, I may have difficulty liking or accepting a painting fully at first. This feeling sometimes only lasts overnight, and when I wake up and view it the next morning I find it to be breath-taking and fantastic. The second peculiar awareness I may have to a painting regards placement. If the painting is sitting in my art-room but the energetic purpose is to be in the bedroom, it will nearly make me throw up until it is placed in it's proper position in the bedroom. And finally, on occasion, a painting may psychically make you aware that it has not been created for you OR it is finished assisting you and now needs to be given to someone else or simply put in storage and taken down. Believe me, the paintings will tell you clairsentiently where they are supposed to be and when.
The Path to Companionship...
a discussion about soulmates, lifemates & love
If it wasn’t for my Lifemate, I would have exited this incarnation long ago.
And to be honest, it has taken more than one of them to get me through it all.
As I have received a great many inquiries from
metaphysical practitioner’s who have expressed
loneliness, both physical and energetic, I’m stepping
forward here to share on the important topic of
relationships. If you are looking for a relationship/
soulmate, then the magic that has been graced me in
this area of life may be of interest to you. This topic
is discussed in the Mastery Work Section because to
understand and find balance in this arena of interaction
will require great mastery on any practitioner’s part
to manage the emotions, engage your heightened
intuition, and walk in honesty and truth for yourself
and those you love.
As I dedicated myself to achieving mastery and overcoming the difficulties in this lifetime, I set a course that I was sure included marriage, house, home and family. But being a sensitive to begin with and having an awareness that earth is not ‘home,’ left me at best with identifiable orphan syndrome, and in daily interactions feeling like nothing more than an observer. I would watch people living human lives as if they were actors on a stage and nothing more. Their interactions with each other and choices for entertainment rarely held any interest for me. And the personality-induced educational programs they inflicted on each other in relationships made even less sense. So a confusing feeling of being terribly different yet without all the answers haunted me through most of my life. Though I held on to the knowledge that I knew energetically what being with a true ‘soulmate’ would feel like. I knew that it wasn’t something to be pushed, forced or grasped after; as these behaviors would be an indicator of my own imbalance. That it wouldn’t be about physical appearance, but instead, the absolute certainty of an energetic fit. But after a near-miss with marriage and motherhood; and a handful of relationships, it was time to bring this dilemma into the realm of spirit for understanding and assistance. I share this discussion now because I receive many emails from those of you who are truly dedicated to walking the highest path of mastery, and feel such sorrow, confusion and grief that the universe would ask you to take so much on without providing the comfort and support of a husband and/or life-partner. But here, I’m going to share a bit of magic that I have been gifted with. Amazing support that I am quite certain is also walking with you.
The term ‘soulmate’ has always bugged me. An over-commercialized set of words with a million metaphysical books for sale on the subject that declare ridiculous solutions amid how-to guides and affirmations guaranteed to attract love. (As if by the universal law of attraction you’re not going to attract to you a potentially messy educational program and mirror of negative patterns if you grasp in manic neediness.) So I went in search of a more accurate and pure truth; and was lead to the term ‘lifemate.’ A purified relationship where two souls walk together and live in-the-moment with each other as they take on life one day at a time. These two souls come from an evolved perspective of interaction where they walk in honesty with both themselves and each other. They allow the growth of the other without resistance or judgment. Life isn’t always calm, happy or perfect, but even through lively discussions and tears; there isn’t an undercurrent of unfinished educational programs and rancid unresolved negative patterns being inflicted on each other. To say it plainly, these two souls just ARE, when in the presence of each other.
So from this knowingness and feeling I was provided with, I looked out across the earth-plane horizon and couldn’t help but wonder if that was even possible in human form. And I realized through meeting a past-life husband and lifemate; that it really is like gravity. But the determining factors that rule the interaction and outcome are behavioral choices and the deeper soul plan. This first lifemate I encountered came as a divine intervention to help me heal and take on a great adventure to save members of our team lost in an international hostage crisis. Unfortunately though, for my heart, he was married with two children and had not come to me in this lifetime to be my husband. And quite honestly, some of his current behavioral choices would have negated my ability to stay with him long-term anyway. So the bottom line was that he wasn’t meant for me in this life; which brought me back to spirit in an ongoing discussion about how I was to have the support I needed. I did understand that this was to be a lifetime for me of standing in my power, speaking truth with kindness, and having to walk away from even my parents in a show of self-love that disallowed all abuse. A path that required great bravery, and often left me on a solitary road.
In sittings with my spirit guides I was told on more than one occasion that the intended soul plan I had entered this lifetime to fulfill would not take the normal route of marriage-children-family. Actually, what they specifically said was that all of that wasn’t important for this lifetime. I was here to accomplish other things from a soul-perspective. And I can tell you that I’ve yelled and complained about the ridiculousness of that on more than one occasion. I have stood in the presence of love and a lifemate on the physical plane, and can honestly say that without love and someone to share with, everything else is just mechanics with little deeper meaning. But spirit did, apparently, have a surprising solution planned.
It would take more than a single web-post to show you the entire story-line that progressed (which is partly why the book 12 Tribes Rising From Eternity’s Fire was written). But I will aim you at the basic discussion of the miracles here. Because for all of my interactions with spirit, as my metaphysical abilities grew in the areas of mediumship and use of intuition, the surprising answer and solution for the time being would actually come from the other side. I would learn that included as a part of the plan for encouraging my abilities to grow was a built-in program to make me reach for it…and I would be introduced to a succession of lifemates on the other side of the veil. A concept that has been the foundation of my very survival and sanity on nearly a daily basis ever since that first introduction. And I came to realize...there may not be a man incarnated in human form on this planet who will ever be able to walk with the appropriate level of honesty, evolution, and the right energetics to be my mate; but that didn’t mean that a lifemate was not to be present.
Though there is a great deal more included on this and other subjects in the book 12 Tribes Rising From Eternity’s Fire, I have included access below to two excerpts to give you a sense of the pathway and magic that allowing your intuitive abilities to grow can bring you. And once you have put forth a dedication to working more directly with your personal guides, it is very appropriate to ask for one of your lifemates on the other side to step forward and make their presence known to you. You may be very surprised by the response you get! And believe me; if you are paying attention, there will be confirmations that assist you in knowing how truly real it is.
Working with Children & Their Abilities...
linking them to their Guardians
I have found in my life that having the
opportunity to work with children is an
honor. Though it is rare to have a chance
to provide direct metaphysical instruction,
since most of the adults on the planet are
just now barely opening up to the concepts.
So you can imagine my delight when I
thought I found a TV show being provided
where skilled Mediums were working with
children to help them move past the fear and
understand their gifts. My joy was quickly
extinguished though, when I watched a
couple of episodes of "Psychic Children"
and realized that what they were actually
doing was throwing intuitive children into
dark woods and haunted houses to frighten them for the ratings, money, fame, etc. Needless to say I was greatly disappointed in their choice to do this. It is never appropriate to frighten a child in this way; and I was shocked that metaphysical "professionals" would do so.
I've been asked on more than one occasion what to do if a child is "seeing ghosts," spirits, or has night fears/visitations. And though the answer depends on the openness and metaphysical understanding of the parent, I developed one technique that you might consider using if the situation presents itself.
Here are the options/elements to choose from depending on the situation. You can reveal the metaphysics or apply the "civilian" method.
1.The primary goal is to make the child feel safe, as well as to keep them from shutting down their abilities out of fear. 2.Disapproval or disallowing their experience can also lead to a shut-down if they are told they are wrong or being ridiculous or that it's just their imagination. 3.If you can, get into a conversation (again depending on the parents willingness/awareness) to let them know that they are special, and it's a good thing to have these abilities to see and feel things around them even if other people can't. Let them know they are not wrong or bad. 4.Depending on their age and interests, you might describe it as their "super power." Most children have watched either superhero movies or cartoons. 5.This is a wonderful opportunity to begin to teach them about spirit guides. Let them know that every child has a "guardian" spirit guide that they can call on to work with/protect them if they are afraid or don't know what to do. Explain that this might be an angel or an animal. Ask them what they think theirs might be. Do not tell them what you think it might be or lead them in any way. See what they come up with....it might surprise you because remember that children naturally have intuitive abilities still at the surface. 6.They need to know that they are always the ones in control. If anything they see is bothering them, they can tell it to go away. (Again, be careful you are not training them to shut-down.) And if they have trouble with this, they can call on their 'Guardian' to help them get rid of the problem. This also teaches them to ask, which is a requirement (for all of us!). Guides and guardians must follow the rules of no-interference in the earth plane free-will-free-choice-zone if not invited to participate in our manifestation process.
In many cases, you might not be able to even have a conversation (let alone a metaphysical one) with the child because the parent will be in the way. So if all else isn't an option, aim for taking "the back door in." Suggest to the parent that one good way to help calm the child and make them feel safe is to give them a "companion" stuffed animal. The World Wildlife Fund has a great "adopt an animal" program that also encourages conservation and will hide your real metaphysical intent that is built into the solution. Suggest that the parent sit down with the child at the computer and let the child pick their favorite animal with NO coaching. They will have assistance from spirit and this is a fascinating way to learn through the child's automatic reflex/intuition engaging to reveal what their Guardian Animal Spirit Guide is at the moment. The parent can simply tell the child when the stuffed animal arrives in the mail that this is their "protector" to sleep with at night who watches over them.
There are 108 animals from around the world to choose from and the basic $50 Adoption Kit comes not only with the stuffed animal to hold, certificate, etc., but a great photo to put in the child's room to bring in the energy and allow further connection.
