Is asking for something free, a good idea?

c3ca257778bec0a8bb09f459be6def46Short answer is absolutely Not. I dislike comparing the universe to a machine, but there is a certain set of laws within our universe that act indiscriminately. A very unforgiving one, is the law of equal exchange. Even if you think you are receiving something for free, the law of equal exchange will charge you for it in one way or another.
The only time, that you may accept something for free is if  you fully intend to pay it forward. Now there are times when you may have gone through a very rough period, and the universe in its ultimate wisdom might give you a couple handouts here and there, but these are exceptions that should not be taken for granted.
Native Americans had this concept very clear. The Vikings also lived by this concept; they even named one of their runes after it. It was the rune “Gebo”, it looks like an “X”. Even mother nature at its core will operate strictly under this principle. In the region of South America where I learned part of my shamanic discipline, for example, it is believed that trees pay their rent by giving out fruit, aromas, shade, wood, etc.
In my shamanic practice, I have been amazed at how clear this concept manifests. Without exception, every single time I have given a lesson, session or ritual for free, in one way or another the result is but a fraction of what it should be. I have learned the hard way, that when I seek a result I should pay my dues in one way or another. When someone approaches me and seeks one of my services the same must be strictly honored.  The good news is that the exchange or payment is accounted for in terms of energy and the intent within your heart. You can’t really harm at an energetic level when your heart is pure. Mother Earth is like a school, we come here to evolve and leave as better souls, so keep a smile on your face, your heart pure, offer and give in-exchange for whatever direction you wish to go.

Raising Awareness??? …Really?

Awareness: “knowledge and understanding that something is happening or exists”


I have read  “Raising Awareness on ______________________” many times in the last couple of years. For me, it was the abuse of animals that made me pay attention. You’d get these grotesque mini videos in social media. Usually it was a human consumption animal being killed or hurt. Somewhere in the post the words “raising awareness” were printed and then there was also something along the lines of, “share”. In the beginning, I was emotionally affected by the content, but as time passed, I started considering the people that constantly posted that content.

When considering other’s motives it is always a good idea to start with yourself . I thought, since I am a Shaman and I know of many energetic afflictions that the human condition can struggle with, perhaps I should start “raising awareness”. I thought, wouldn’t that create fear and anxiety? What if some people are dealing with struggles but are taking care of them in different ways? What if someone that never registered the existence of this, due my posts, now gets obsessed with the energetic nature of our life?

Wait, isn’t the medical, political, technological, and just about anybody with an agenda already doing this? Basically spreading tailored facts that will shift people’s thinking into a behavior that best suits their interests.

Nowadays, when I read, “Raising Awareness”, to me it actually says hidden agenda. It immediately raises my filters and defenses. The person reposting may be legitimately worried and well-meaning, but what I really ask myself is, who benefits if this trend becomes dominant. Even worse, like in the case of political campaigns, the question becomes, who gets hurt if this information spreads and is believed.

When I have visited regions that have been afflicted by catastrophes, I have observed that humans will naturally tend to help each other. In remote regions of civilization, people live a simple life and deal with what is in front of them. Rarely does someone travel hours from the nearest town to “raise awareness” to them, and even more rarely do they need it. This reminds me of the time that I asked a shaman that was teaching me about healing what he thought of “global warming”, he replied, “I’m still using the same sweaters as the past years, if it warms up, I’ll just get rid of them”.

Woman Marries Herself to Herself


For the complete article please Click Here

I read through it fairly fast, but in short, it was a fashion show that was culminated with the designer vowing to her self in a wedding style ceremony. There was a self proclaimed healer helping her through the ceremony.

As a Shaman, I have no solid opinions about this. People are free to do as they wish. The fact that other people were present as she proclaimed certain things, would help seal energetically whatever her intentions were. As long as the atmosphere was honest and with a sense of truth.

I hope this was not motivated by the “trend” we are witnessing lately of including all sorts of labels and unions of all sorts of imaginable variations. Or worse that it was orchestrated to piggyback on the political movement of women’s empowerment known as: “Time’s Up” (#MeToo). It was mentioned in the article and that made me feel that the ceremony could have been less honest.

Why Should Healers care about the FISA Memo


I have a Google news alert set up for anything relating to shamanism or healing and it is so surprising to me the amount of arrests that healers go through during the week. Most of the time it has to do with a story relating to a healer having scammed clients and charging them vasts amount of money for a service they did not deliver on. Here is this week’s latest scandal. Having been in this industry for over a decade, it really surprises that so many people fall prey to a scammer. It is also questionable how investigating authorities determine where to draw the line. I have had my share of crazy requests, from time travel to being a acting as a spiritual hitman. As any experienced practitioner will tell you there are certain universal laws that are learned very early in this path that a practitioner does not transgress.
Since the FISA memo was released last week it made me think that it would be in the convenience of larger industries to create a regulating department that would little by little hunt down and set up well-meaning healers. Maybe, some of those crazy requests, where I was offered a great amount of money, may have been a potential set up.

Shamans Vs. Developers, in Brazil

cb54-002_1899_july10_b21725It has happened before and it is still happening. Indigenous people trying to exist on their own terms, in harmony  with the land, and other alien people with money-oriented plans coming and tearing them apart with force. 

The story below, involves shamans. Knowing how we operate, I am really interested to see what will happen to the development (and its founders) if the “educated” people through their regulations and lawyers manage to take the land away from them.

Free will cannot be stopped immediately, however the spirits that these people (the Shamans) work with have time, synchronicity and chances on their side. If I were a developer, I’d really try to honor these people. I doubt they will though.

Below is the actual reported story:

“When the developers arrived, we were already here. They think that money always wins,” she said.

It is one of many such conflicts in Brazil, rich in land to be exploited and low on deeds and property records.

For land demarcation is controversial in Brazil, despite safeguards in both the constitution and United Nations guidelines that are supposed to enshrine rights for indigenous people.

About a third of almost a million indigenous people live in Brazil’s cities, according to government statistics.

The use of force:

Indigenous locals say pressure to displace them from the area has steadily increased over the years.

One November afternoon last year, Guajajara said about 10 men – some armed – and three tractors invaded the Santuário dos Pajés’ area, knocking down trees in the hope of clearing the land sufficiently to pave an avenue down its middle.

Her 18-year-old son Fetxa said he tried and failed to stop them by blocking their path. “I did not get out of the front. They pushed me forward, along with the soil, twice. I was shocked.”

You Don’t Owe Anything to Anybody!!!

Every once in a while a very strong message will “channel” itself through me. What I am about to write below is one of those. 

BE SOVEREIGN. You are a self aware unit of Divine consciousness. Nothing and No one can ever dispute or discredit this. Even if you are going in the wrong direction in your life right now, it is Your Life and no one else’s. Take pride in this and honor it. Own your decisions and take full responsibility for everything that is in your surroundings right now. Others, may be able to force and coerce themselves onto your life, but never into your consciousness. For consciousness is Divine and privy to Laws that supersede anything humans can ever try to influence.

May you be Blessed…


When you see 1111, Do This!


Many of my clients mention that they see a recurrence of 111 or 1111 everywhere and very often. If and when you see these numbers it means that you are aligned in a very specific manifestation pattern. The best way to use this point in time, space and consciousness is to say to yourself a mantra every time you see this. I suggest you plan this manifestation mantra carefully and stick with it for a minimum of one year. The mantra itself should include the “I  am” statement. The mantra should also be no longer the one sentence. A quick phrase is even better. It should not include specifics of how you want the wish to come true. It is okay if it is a generic statement, such as “I am thin”, “I am healthy”, “I am successful”, etc.

Good luck!

Allowing Improvements IN your Life

il_340x270-1380817663_de21Shamanism perceives reality as an interaction of self-consciousness and the external environment. Nothing can be around you without your conscious participation in it. This means that we have a choice in who, what and how, we allow in our life. What a lot of my clients get stuck in is in switching from something they don’t like to something they would like better. These happens because we don’t release fully in order to make the space for the new to come in.

If we go back to the concept of reality just being an interaction between your consciousness and your environment, it is very simple to see it as you sitting inside a room with two doors. One door allows everything to come into your world, the world you experience, and the other door allows you to release it from your conscious experience. What happens with most of us, is that the room is full of stuff no longer needed. Life is waiting to provide you with new experiences and improvements but that new energy cannot fit within your consciousness because the older undesired energy is still there and has not been released. The room needs to be temporarily empty and this causes fear. We tend to settle for compromises or second bests instead of emptiness. Yet, “nothingness” is exactly what is needed for a little time in order for new clean energy to come in.

This concept works on many levels, sometimes it’s the energy behind the relationship you have with somebody you love. Very often we have allowed negative habits of behavior to happen between us and our loved ones, and we confuse this interaction thinking that the relationship no longer serves us. When seen from an energetic perspective we still love the person but disapprove of the type of relationship we are having. In this case we don’t need to evict the person from our conscious experience, but rather the behaviors that are part of everyday life which are disliked. This takes very strong willpower and focus, even discipline. This is not taught in organized religion or by psychologists or counselors.

Next time you want an improvement in your life, look around you and find what is mostly blocking that improvement. Next, consciously decide to avoid that behavior or activity for a specific period of time (in the Peruvian shamanic tradition I practice,  we usually use one cycle of the moon, 28 days). Do this with the intent of inviting that  desired improvement in your life.

The universe dislikes voids, and you will observe that as the undesired energy is released you perceive that void and it naturally pulls you towards filling it, usually with the undesired energy itself. Hold still and wait a little and you’ll see how the new improvement magically starts appearing in your life.

When confused…

Back-to-BasicsLiving in an urban setting was so much information and technology, it is very easy to get disoriented and confused. In Shamanism, things are narrowed down to very elemental concepts, so confusion in daily life and with people we interact is rarely an occurrence.

Here are some examples:

  • when dealing with people, first we want to recognize if the person in question is pray, predator or opportunistic. (Wolf, Lamb, Fox)
  • when dealing with personal dilemmas, first we ask what is the wisest course of action, next what is the right thing to do, then what is the healthiest thing to do (the action the will bring the most harmony), finally we ask is there justice for all in our considered decision.
  • As far as opinions from us or others, we first ask ourselves if we have personally experienced with our five senses the situation we are about to express ourselves about. We also ask this of the person that is expressing their opinion. If something comes not being experienced personally then an opinion will carry very little weight. We prefer to laugh about things we don’t understand.
  • As far as health, we believe there is no reason to be sick and that the human body we enjoy is a great friend that will communicate with us constantly. Pains, sensations and conditions are the ways it communicates and we lovingly pay attention so we can supply its needs.
  • With parents, we are very grateful to them for helping us come into this world and experience life. Regardless of our relationship with them, this original gratitude is always honored. This also extends to the parents of our loved ones (i.e. Our in-laws)
  • with extended family, we recognize these people as part of our circle. They are the priority if we are to donate time or resources.
  • Community. Away from big cities in little towns communities are easy to discern, but in weeks cities with millions of people community becomes a little more elusive. Anybody that comes into a circle of people with a desire to help, belong, participate is automatically considered part of that community (regardless of age, race, religion, etc.)
  • nationalities and religions. Because in a shamanic tradition we are all brothers and sisters on the same Mother Earth under the same Father Sun, nationalities and religions are not even secondary to how we treat or consider one another. Children have different personalities and tend to have different relationships with their parents this is the way we see different cultures, religions and nationalities.

When in a Long Term Rut

Man Sitting In ValleyA  few weeks ago I had a client that had been to a couple of healers and spiritual workers for the last few years. His particular request and complain had to do with bad luck in his finances, as he put it. When I am visited by someone that has seen a list of people before me, I understand that there is a high probability that I will be added on to that list. This also indicates that the client is in a very long and sluggish cycle, most probably enforced by his personal or thinking habits. The way around this is creating new smaller habits that will not be burdensome or contrary to the clients lifestyle  These new little habits will act as seeds that will fertilize the energetic field of my client for the real and more intense work that I will be doing at a later date.


What happens most of the time, is either the client slowly fades interest in following through with the little tasks I prescribe; or just doing something as simple as finding a stone in a park takes them days or even weeks to complete. In the latter, at least progress is still being achieved. In a way now as I am writing about this, I realize this is similar to what happens in shamanic communities in the outskirts of society. It is very common for shamans to design spirit quests for their patients. As spiritual human beings just doing something with mere intention and knowledge builds up energy towards manifesting what is desired. This is why as a mystic and a shaman I am so open-minded to other spiritual and energetic traditions and systems. In this world if you want to get from point A to point B, the vehicle doesn’t really matter much. It is just a matter of knowing how to drive it and where you want to go.

Very often, we find ourselves through our lifestyle and thinking habits going in directions we dislike. Shamans understand this and through simple mundane tasks help redirect the energy so that the client arrives were he/she desires and where is best for him/her.
