Welcome to the Age of Aquarian: a new paradigm for existing. As old structures fall away, we’re trickling into new models on both the macro and micro levels.
Sarah Akala entered my office in a swirl of long gleaming dark curls and layers of softly swaying feminine fabric. My first impression was of a young, modern woman. Then I had a psychic vision of her as a gypsy in another lifetime. I put that on the back burner and focused on Sarah, here and now.
Tarot and oracle decks are part of our daily ritual to connect to Spirit and empower our intuition. It is through divination that we are able to quiet the mind, empower the soul, and listen intently to our intuition. We are incredibly fortunate to live in a time where there are an abundance of rad divination tools to assist us in our never-ending journey of inner exploration and expansion.
I remember looking so far outside of myself for validation that I got turned inside out. My quest for fulfillment was one of pain and suffering. But the lows that the universe offered me were met with even greater highs, as soon as I learned that my power was always there, forever guiding me.
Several years ago, as I became a mom and was married to a man in the holiness religion (bad idea), I set aside my spiritual path (another bad idea). However, I have lately returned to my pagan path.
This February, we only experience one lunation in the entire calendar month, and it is a new moon solar eclipse in the sign of Aquarius. This type of event, a month without a full moon, will not occur again in many years, making the energy of February all about new beginnings and planting the seeds of the future you wish to cultivate and co-create.
I had read all of the articles (“5 Signs He’s Totally Your Twin Flame!”) and watched all of the YouTubes (“How to Tell If He’s The One!”). And even he agreed it was true. We were twin flames. It was decided and confirmed and verified.
Radical self-love: this idea that is revolutionizing the way we interact with and treat ourselves has become one of the most written about topics in the wellness industry.
Have you ever felt more alive than when bringing something to life, in whatever form? Have you ever felt happier than when admiring one of your own creations—whether a child, a painting, or a gourmet meal? I sure as hell haven’t! Whatever your particular kind of fancy, it feels intrinsically damn good to give genesis to something.
On January 31, 2018, we will experience an astrological event that we haven’t seen in 150 years! This blue moon (a full moon occurring twice in a calendar month) is also a total lunar eclipse and supermoon, in the zodiac sign of Leo at 11 degrees. Wowza! This is a trifecta triple threat, in the best way possible! Bingo, bango, bongo!
Yoni egg: a vagina’s crystal companion for rejuvenated connection, deep healing, better orgasms, more creativity, and a general Goddess power surge. Though there is no mention in The Feminine Mystique of the power of this ancient practice, it has been used by women for over a millennia, and it is now seeing a huge resurgence in the Now Age.
Like most of us, I occasionally wondered about the afterlife but never focused my attention on it. It wasn’t until my son, Christopher, was killed in a motorcycle accident in 2006 that my urge to know was born. In the midst of a fetal position, wailing in grief, I heard the call from spirit: “Get up. Look up. Reach out. Connect with me mom…”
Happy Anniversary to us! One year ago today, on a mystical full moon on 1/11/17, we launched Spirit Guides Magazine into the universe from the energetic land of Sedona, Arizona.
The process of placing our spiritual energy within a body, and in doing so forgetting that we are vast, majestic, divine beings made literally from the energy of unconditional love, is akin to being struck on the head by a heavy tree branch and rendered unconscious, only to awaken with no memory whatsoever.
Sweet relief: 2017 is finally over. This past year was an upheaval—full of slow beginnings, tragic endings, global chaos, and general uncertainty. While there are many factors in our individual lives that impact how the years unfold, there are also universal aspects that affect each and every one of us on an energetic and cellular level. We can look to numerology for detailed insight on what this means and how we can work with the energy for our greatest good.
At the beginning of each year, it’s customary to write down goals, resolutions, things to start up, and things to shed. And while we love goals as much as the next soulpreneur (like, a lot, a lot), they are typically hyper-focused on doing, and we’re finding that the secret to success is actually in shifting more of our attention to simply being. Allowing. Accepting. Aligning.
Growing up, Christmas was my second favorite holiday. My true favorite was, of course, Halloween. Was there ever any question that I was a witch? No, especially since I also saw and heard spirits and always seemed to know things I shouldn’t. It was just always there.
The history of beer is the history of man’s fascination with beer. An alchemical marvel, for ancient humans it was a craft steeped in mysticism and rooted in the old gods. Across cultures, brewed liquor was an elixir that warmed the bones and filled the belly, imbuing the drinker with good cheer and, at times, altered consciousness.
Brian Weiss. Wayne Dyer. Deepak Chopra. Anita Morjani. Eben Alexander. Gary Schwarz. We all know these are big names—and Mark Pitstick, MA, DC, is associated with every one of them. And for good reason—as an author, documentary producer, experiential workshop leader, among many other things, for more than 40 years he has been a powerhouse in the spirituality and afterlife fields.
As a writer about the afterlife, I commonly hear people despairing about their lack of spiritual experiences, and how their guides seem to have blocked them off the cosmic Facebook page—they’re just nowhere to be found. In fact, when someone has had no ‘para’ experiences they may find themselves frustrated by the accounts of people who do.
