Rebirth: Embracing the Unknown

Through the Akashic Records I have learned that our highest soul purpose is that of soul growth. Our souls grow through our own healing process, or the endless cycle of death and rebirth that creates the transformations that we want to make within ourselves and our lives. What I have also seen is we often carry the same lesson over many lifetimes and struggle to have the soul growth necessary to be truly reborn.

Why is it so hard for us to change and grow?

Think about the symbols of rebirth. The phoenix burns to a pile of ashes before it can be reborn. A caterpillar liquifies before it can be reborn as a butterfly. We need to allow aspects of ourselves to die before we can be reborn, but death is just the beginning.

Often, we aren’t prepared that it doesn’t get easier after experiencing the “death” of old patterns that no longer serve us. The fact is, the unknown can be more challenging than death. Only focusing on letting go does not prepare us for the new.

Rebirth requires us to let go of comfort and embrace the great unknown and not run back to the safety and comfort of our old ways.

There is no comfort in growth, there is no growth in comfort.

We can find ourselves in an uncomfortable in-between. We aren’t who we used to be, but we aren’t quite what we are becoming. We need to have the courage to take steps forward as the newest version of ourselves, even though the path is not clear.

Rebirth is hard! That’s why we are called spiritual warriors. We need to continue to fight our internal battles, even when we feel like giving up.

Remember that our deepest resistance comes right before a major breakthrough. Hold on, you’ve got this! a

Rebirth 3 States – What are you Planting this Spring?

What if we consider the three states we tend to organize time into – Past, Present, Future.

We can learn about our past by looking at our body – it is the state of our past. What scars, what condition, what kind of vitality do we have? What past seeds have come to fruition by our body’s current state?

We can notice our present by our state of mind – how are we orientated mentally, emotionally, socially? Are we feeling clear, calm, connected to self and others? Are we agitated, or distracted, or disturbed, or stupefied? Are we inspired by our present moment? What present seeds are being planted that will shape our body and color our present reality?

We can notice our future as consciousness – consciousness is without form, qualities, it is pure creative potential. Anything

is possible to manifest. When consciousness alchemizes with matter and qualities, then realities present and take form and our future unfolds.

When our mind is clear and seated in a body free of toxins with good flow of energy and we engage with consciousness in this calm state the future sure looks peaceful and those seeds of consciousness manifest. a

How to Experience a Sacred Rebirth in This Lifetime

If you were given the opportunity to experience death and rebirth in this lifetime, would you take it? Many of us associate rebirth with reincarnation, which is real. However, we can experience a beautiful rebirth in a conscious life-changing way, any time we’d like, and I’d like to share how. Bufo Alvarius is poisonous toad, native to the Sonoran Desert in Mexico, whose venom contains a sacred medicine. Bufo is the most powerful medicine/entheogen known to humankind; nearly 5-7 times more powerful than DMT (the active ingredient in Ayahuasca). When the medicine is ingested at the right dose, and as part of an ancestral medicine ceremony, it can put the part of our brain to sleep that’s responsible for the Ego and allow us to transcend the physical. In other words, complete Ego dissolution. When the Ego dissolves, there is no “I” or “Me” left to experience anything. Its ineffable.

Now, once the Ego dissolves, we reconnect with our Essence, which is a fractal of Source/All That Is. And this state of Egoless consciousness allows us to experience our truest nature. It can allow us to remember who we’ve always been – the very fabric of the Universe itself.

Now, as the medicine wears off, the Ego returns. And in this moment of return, we often experience what feels like a rebirth; like opening our eyes for the very first time. And this rebirth can allow us to move forward with a renewed perspective on life. And this born-again state can foster soullevel healing and an approach to life with a sacred “knowing” of our purpose and meaning. As Ram Dass once said, “Our whole spiritual transformation brings us to the point where we realize that in our own being, we are enough.”

Eagle Spirit Collective, is an amphibian medicine church that has served over 150 doses of Bufo Alvarius across Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Texas. And if you feel the medicine calling, it would be an honor for us to be a part of your rebirth experience. a

Adam Dince is the founder and medicine minister of Eagle Spirit Collective. Additionally, Adam is a hypnotherapist that specializes in healing trauma, limiting beliefs, and other life challenges through hypnotic regression. Adam authored the book, “Back to the Beyond, Exploring Near-Death Experiences Through Hypnosis” which can be found at all online book e-tailers.

By definition Moxie is a character trait, a way of being. Moxie is the cleverness and charisma, the persistence and perseverance that we show up with in our lives. When we say yes to our Moxie we are saying yes to all the best our character has to offer.

For many of us the last few years have been a rollercoaster of emotions and self-discovery with all of the ups and downs, excitement and a little bit of terror. Because of the time of introspection there is a collective shift happening now. We removed the cobwebs from the corners of our imaginations (and hearts). We started to remember and embrace the authentic nature of our being. A collective return to the light within and when we make these major shifts in our lives change is always involved. Whether it’s a change of heart, change of mind, or change of habit, in order for personal evolution to occur something has to change.

Jim Rohn says there are 3 motivators of change “When you hurt enough that you have to, learn enough that you want to, and receive enough that you are able to.” Which one are you feeling? Which one was the catalyst to start your journey?

Honestly, for me, it’s been all three over time. The love and support received by friends, family, and community during times of heartbreak and the lessons I learned through all of it have

been the main drivers in my life to remind me that we are all so capable of profound change in our lives. Through everything that has been going on I start to see themes and messages come through.

This is where our bracelet club really shines. You get an exclusive to the club bracelet each month with an intention practice and loose crystal or stone. When I’m creating your Moxie Monthly Bracelet Club bracelet each month I really tap into the conversations I’ve been having with people, clients and even friends and family. If you listen you can start to tap into the collective energy. Much of what has been showing up lately is that we are finding ourselves in this space between.

The “in-between” is the space between moving on from what no longer serves you and not knowing what the next step is. You’ve taken the step to move forward, the action to serve your highest version of yourself and your life, but you’re not quite sure what the next step is going to be. This is a beautiful time to relish in the aliveness of the present moment. The perfectness of right now. When we can learn to let go of our attachments to what was and what might be we can fill our hearts with gratitude and awe for what is. Gratitude for the whole human experience, even when it’s hard. Embrace the moment of pause. This is the space where magic happens. The mind becomes clear and the next steps are illuminated.

Other themes that are coming up are surrounding perseverance, willpower, and finding your authentic voice. This is where you are now in a place to move forward from the 'in-between'. The whisper that there’s something more has stirred within you. When I’m teaching yoga I always love to use the phrase “don’t compare your first chapter to someone else’s chapter 20” –Anonymous. This is true on our mat and off of it. We are all on our own beautiful journeys writing our own amazing stories. Where you are right now matters. All of these energies and journeys are what guide the way and inspire me to create everyday.

Moxie Malas was created as a wearable affirmation of the energy within. From the very beginning it’s been so much more than jewelry - it’s a vehicle for a broader message. A reminder that everything you are looking for already exists within you. Sometimes we need a little (or big) reminder of that. At Moxie Malas we take people beyond the bracelet with workshops, retreats, trainings, and our Moxie Monthly Bracelet Club. Our values are to support personal discovery, healing, transformation, and empowerment. This January we have one such retreat. It is our 5th Annual Expansion retreat where we collaborate with Dr. Patty Hlava of AwakenPeace to bring you a day where you will reinvent the resolution process by uncovering clarity in your vision for your Self and embodying your intentions for the year ahead. This experiential retreat is not about planning or trying to control the future. You will not set goals or write a list of resolutions.

This workshop is about one thing:

Expansion is the balancing action of contraction. It’s part of a natural rhythm that invites flow and ease into our life.

• What do you want to see expand in your life?

• What do you want to grow?


Awaken clarity and embody your vision for 2023 by defining your intention for the New Year. Choose your direction by being clear about what quality you want to embody so that you can manifest your Moxie in 2023. a

E chinacea

Do you Have echinacea planted in your garden for its beauty? Then you should bring some inside for your witchcraft practice! Echinacea has many different names, such as purple coneflower, snakeroot, and hedgehog. These beautiful plants are found in eastern and central North America.

This amazing herb is great for getting through a tough time, from drawing prosperity into your home, to enhancing your spell power! This herb is a must-have for every magickal practitioner.

Have you been struggling with finances lately? Don’t worry, I have a great solution for you. Grab a vase and place some pennies in the bottom, add echinacea flowers to it and place it on your alter. If the flower is not in season, then use dried or tea form echinacea instead. Ask your spirit guides to assist you in your financial affairs and watch as money problems seem to melt away.

Echinacea is also a great way to assist with fertility spells. It’s meant to clear spiritual blockages that may be inhibiting your success. By hanging a mojo bag of dried echinacea over the head of your bed or even taking a ritual bath in the echinacea flowers can boost your fertility. Any type of hardship you may be experiencing; job loss, relationship ending, death of a loved one, echinacea summons your inner strength.

Another amazing gift that echinacea provides is the ability to open your psychic awareness. You can drink tea before you meditate or do tarot. See the results for yourself. Your intuition will be more accurate because echinacea opens your third eye.

This herb has amazing medicinal properties and has been used as the cure-all plant throughout history. It's been used to treat scarlet fever, malaria, syphilis, and even blood poisoning.

This plant can boost your immune system and can help prevent viruses and infections. Taking echinacea while sick can help reduce your length of illness. I currently take echinacea daily to help lower my chances of catching a cold!

Why does echinacea help prevent sickness you ask? Between the composition of the antioxidants and alkaloids. They work together to fight off free radicals, also it helps your body’s inflammatory response system. For those suffering with osteoarthritis echinacea is a great supplement to take, trust me I know! By decreasing your inflammation, it decreases pressure in joints, which decreases your pain.

Echinacea is also antibacterial. So, if you struggle with acne this will help to decrease your outbreaks.

Studies have shown it may lower your blood glucose by making your cells more sensitive to insulin. That is great news for pre-diabetics and diabetics. This does NOT replace insulin so make sure to discuss taking echinacea with your medical doctor before you change any of your medical regiments.

Echinacea is an essential piece for your apothecary. You can take it in supplement form, tincture, or just drink it in a tea. You can find Echinacea at Midwest Witchery and Healing. Don’t be caught out in the cold this winter with illness. Grab your Echinacea today. a

JODI JACOBSON, owner of Midwest Witchery and Healing, uses organic and ethically sourced components, as well as hand creates her products during proper moon phases to ensure the most potent beneficial energies whatever your needs. Practicing witchcraft over 40 years, Jodi can help you with your spiritual needs. Find out more by visiting

Karmic Cycle

We have entered the beginning phase of moving out of the karmic cycle. For millions of years, we’ve incarnated in low vibration realms for learning purposes, but we are now moving into an era where we don’t need to continue doing this. We have been rigorously doing our inner work, since that’s what it takes to collectively shift out of the lower realms, and remembering that we’re all energetically connected.

By doing inner work, we’ve created a tipping point where we can move out of the karmic cycle and incarnate solely in higher vibrational lifetimes.

I’ve been noticing the karmic cycle being worked through with many clients lately. When I work with clients, I see that many people are doing the same inner work at the same time. Everything I see with my clients is shown symbolically so that I can understand the meaning of what it represents.

Lately, I’ve noticed that people are letting go of something that I’ve been calling an “old star map.” This old star map keeps us in a logical mindset around the Divine but logic doesn’t make us feel a part of the Divine. It keeps us in divisive thinking that keeps a polarized reality in place. This is what stops the karmic cycle from ending.

A “new star map” came in so we can embody the knowing that we are a part of the Divine which makes up everybody and everything. This allows us to know, on a deep level that we are co-creating our reality and can have a life filled with greater purpose and happiness. As with everything, this is a process. The more of us that do this work together the faster things transform so we can all fully move into a higher vibration.

After working with the new star map, I had an experience while in the harmonic egg at the Om Center of Healing in St. Paul, that created another dramatic shift for me. The harmonic egg uses a combination of frequencies, sound, and colors to create a healing environment and energetically heal a person mentally, emotionally and physically.

Before my harmonic egg session, I had been grieving the loss of my deceased friends, Andreas Moritz, Mel, and other friends and relatives who had died. I found it strange, since I had already grieved the death of them, but it was as though they had just died. My intention for the egg session was to get to the root of the grief and transform it.

Once in the egg, I was transported through a portal to a cliff with a canyon below. Many deceased people were on the cliff, including Andreas and my other friends and family.

Andreas approached me and said, “Glad you received our message to inquire about us. We are currently preparing to incarnate on earth again.” I was surprised he and others needed to incarnate on earth. Andreas was such a spiritual person when he was alive – he wrote 16 books on health and spirituality that are read all over the world and still available on his website

He went on to say, “It’s not as though we really need to come back but we’ve really had no choice given that everyone is still in a karmic loop since the critical mass shift in transcending the karmic cycle hadn’t occurred. However, this is now changing.” As he said that, a portal opened up above us and everyone on the cliff popped up and through it!

As this occurred, all of my grief left me and I felt such joy for them!! I knew the reason I felt such strong grief was to make me aware of this. Perhaps they needed a certain number of people on earth to ground this transition to move beyond this lower vibrational karmic wheel!

I contacted Andreas’s wife to tell her about this. She said that she felt something shift in this regard a few months back and perhaps we were on “sister tracks” regarding this shift! I’m sure that is true!

During the rest of my egg session, I talked to people in my life who I wasn’t completely resolved with so I could move completely out of the karmic cycle. I felt reborn after this amazing experience! So much so that I turned it into an energetic healing audio so others could have their own experience with this!

The Hopi Elders are saying, “We are at the hour of transformation now.” We all have the ability to evolve and transform our lives and it is much easier to do so when you have the knowledge, tools, and practices to raise your consciousness and vibration. This is why we’ve built the School for Higher Consciousness – to empower and support people through the dawning of a new era and raise the level of consciousness on the planet.

We invite you to join us for a free Winter Solstice meditation on December 21, 2022 at 7:00 pm CST to experience the energies and gifts our Guides are bringing in to assist during this critical time.

Let’s all join hands and do this work together!

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for! a

We are racing towards a new world full of change. Energy is moving so quickly that the movement alone can physically make us feel dizzy, off balance, nauseous, emotionally whipped out, angry, or easily irritable—a sense of feeling off balance emotionally. 2023 will feel like a rollercoaster with big ups and downs. I challenge you to ask yourself, are emotions coming from inside myself or the energy surrounding me? Decide how you will work with change and fear. We are moving forward and never going back. Now is an exciting time to experience new things if you choose to look at the excitement of change. The other option is looking at change with fear.

I used to want my world to stay the same, to be comfortable, and to know all the things to come. I was trying to convince myself that I was happy to remain the same, but the truth was I was not. The change I felt was like a rug was pulled out from under me. I felt an intense sense of fear and unhappiness, causing me anxiety. Ultimately, the choice was mine. I had to choose to move into the unknown, sometimes into unsettling energy, and learn to trust myself, knowing I was creating a better life for myself and looking forward to the moment I was in. I was excited about the next surprise, whenever it may come.

Fear came when I felt like I needed to be in control of the situation I found myself in or when I felt a lack of control in my own life. I would then ask a critical question- what do we believe about ourselves and the world?

We are unveiling a part of ourselves each day and lovingly exploring who we are. Your Soul is waiting to have a conversation with you. Have you ever talked out loud to yourself or in your head? If you have, this means you have already started a conversation with yourself. Have you been telling yourself you are worth it and have a lot to offer yourself, the people around you, and the world, or are you talking negatively about yourself?

Now is the time to change the narrative you are having with yourself. You are vital in bringing change for us all into being. We are stepping beyond fear. Knowing we are worthy of experiences that benefit us and connecting with one's self on a different level. We need to acknowledge the support on the other side to help us move forward. We must all tap into the other side's empathic feelings of support, excitement, and love. We must understand that we are the catalyst for change alongside our Soul, which can bring us the sense of wanting to do more in our lives, to create the life we want.

Concentrating on ourselves makes the changes we want in the world. However, we have been taught to put others first. The people teaching you this wanted their needs met first. Examine your interactions with people. Are you putting your needs second? Ask yourself why you think it's right to put your needs below others – taking care of everyone else but yourself. Are you still hearing the words from others that you are not good enough, not measuring up, are not worth it, and are always doing things wrong? And the list goes on. We may overcompensate by helping others, looking for acceptance from a feeling of not being able to please the people who matter the most in our lives.

Is there drama happening around you? Are you playing into the cycle of drama or walking away? Do you need to be the one to fix it? Are you staying in the drama out of obligation to family, friends, or coworkers? Is your inner peace worth the effort to step out of any drama? Can leaving any drama give us time to draw in supportive people around you? Can you enjoy conversations and interactions with people that surround you? These are questions to ask yourself as you move forward.

Changes hold fear of losing people and things that have long been in our lives. These losses can manifest through family, friends, relationships, coworkers, jobs, and even physically moving to another location. Moving past relationships that don't serve us can be difficult and fearful. Give yourself time to grieve, just as you mourn a physical death. Many of the emotions you go through with death are the same as releasing a relationship that doesn't serve you. So be gentle with yourself.

Fortunately, we are not doing it alone. We have support from many realms, loved ones, angels, nature, and more. Connecting with ourselves and other domains helps us tap into feelings of unconditional love, support, and knowledge, helping us navigate our journeys. These connections create new possibilities. Each one of you holds immense personal power. Exploring your connections creates new opportunities for yourself, others, and the world. Our world is expanding to include others from other worlds and expanding our universe and theirs. We are not alone and never have been.

As we grow and expand, the animals around us are expanding energetically, experiencing changes in their behavior. They may be good, bad, excited, despondent, feeling off, or just plain different than normal. All of us, animals included, are experiencing personal expansion in this new energy.

Anything you pushed down because you didn't want to deal with it will be bubbling to the surface for you to examine and then let go of. The supportive energy is here to help us release many old patterns and beliefs at a fast pace. Thankfully, it will take less time to release what doesn't serve us than it took us to create the beliefs. So there is no need to examine every little thing. When you release one aspect, many more will be released with it.

Each of us is creating change in us and our world. It's time to envision the change in the world as already happening. We are creating a world of possibilities. There is nothing to fear and much to be excited about.

I invite you to enjoy and be excited about the new world we are creating and release the fear of change. I am.

As a Paranormal Investigator, the one thing that is often said to me is that what I do must be “scary and creepy”. When I am faced with this statement, the people who say this to me will says it like it’s an exciting adventure. I feel like they think being a Paranormal Investigator is like people who ride the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland. The spirits entertain us and we have our interactions and go home. This obviously is not the case.

No disrespect to anyone who doesn’t understand what it means to be a Paranormal investigator nor to those who only know anything about it from watching the unending list of possible shows on Travel Channel or streaming on Discovery Plus. My position is not meant to insult anyone as I believe my role in this universe is one of teaching and helping people with understanding. I am meant to help people understand why spirit communicates with us.

The Paranormal is many things. In fact, what people seem to gloss over is that the Paranormal covers more than just spirits and ghosts. By its definition of being Paranormal also covers ufology and cryptozoology and other areas of this realm. Yet, as we talk about Paranormal, we generally use that term to talk about it as spirit communication and I will continue to use this nomenclature for the sake of familiarity.

When we talk about the Paranormal strictly from a side of spirit interaction, it still is many things but what stands out for me and what I most identify with it is that the Paranormal is beautiful. The TV shows and some investigators/groups want to focus on the darker aspects of spirit communication. They focus on the specter with the chains, the unhappy spirit who oppresses the living, or the legends that are so out of date now that no one wants to correct them for fear that locations attached to these legends will lose income. I come from the point of view that paranormal investigating and metaphysical/spiritual communication go hand in hand. There should be no gap but I find myself trying to bridge the gap. So, why is the Paranormal beautiful? Here are a couple of examples:

If you could reach out to a relative who have passed, why wouldn’t you? Having the opportunity to hear their voices via some piece of paranormal equipment like the spirit box or working with a gifted Medium who brings forth your loved one is a wonderful gift. Especially if you can get someone who brings through a loved one and although they themselves never met the person, they bring through their mannerisms or perhaps a favorite phrase. Do you ever think what it would be like to have 5 more minutes with a loved one who passed away? What would you say? What would you ask?

Now that we talked about how the Paranormal could be beautiful to you personally what about sharing that beauty with someone else? Many gifted Mediums who read this magazine can

attest first-hand how powerful it is to bring a loved one forward to someone. Give them the opportunity to experience their loved one again. That’s called Mediumship but it is also Paranormal. If people think Paranormal is only using “equipment” to reach out to a spirit, then how about this? I use a spirit box. This little radio scans the AM or FM frequencies, which in theory allows you to have real time conversations with spirit. I use it along with Mediumship to help people hear the voices of loved ones again. It is powerful and moving. I will leave you with this. On Easter Sunday during a Facebook Live where I use my spirit box, I decided to try and reach Mother Mary. Reaching out to her is not a comment on one religion over another, it is simply who I chose. I asked at the start of this session, “Mother Mary, are you here?” the response was a female who said, “I am here.” The rest of the session became calm with many voices coming through the box telling all of us, “I love you.” over and over. The point is that regardless of religion or belief systems or what we are told on TV, amongst many things, the Paranormal is truly beautiful. a

My Journey Into Shamanism

For over two decades, I have been on an alternative healing path for my health. This journey has led me to practitioners in many modalities, including homeopathy, traditional therapy, Reiki, holistic nutrition, and acupuncture. I have experienced steady and profound improvements in my physical health through this time, however, finding a permanent resolution to ongoing flares of depression and generalized anxiety has been a more elusive pursuit.

The first time I ever experienced shamanic healing was in late December 2020in Texas while visiting my sister. While I have had many energy healing sessions in the past, this was the first time I had one that incorporated shamanic healing. I left feeling centered, grounded, and calm for the first time since the start of the pandemic nine months prior. This feeling lasted for almost three months.

In March 2021, my feelings of anxiety and not being grounded crept back in. I turned to Google–a shamanic energy healer near me–and to my surprise, found Zenith High, owned by Mary Newstrom, right in my suburb St. Louis Park. I had my first session with Mary and left with a restored sense of being centered. During this session, she told me about her shamanic studies program, Spirit Flow, and invited me to consider joining the program starting the following month.

Coincidentally, I had created a vision board more than a year prior and intuitively had placed a large design with the word ‘shamanism’ in the center. Tucked in the back corner of my bedroom and forgotten during the pandemic, it was not something I had thought about for some time. I noticed it the evening after my healing and conversation with Mary and knew it was a sign leading me into Spirit Flow.

You know those decisions that come effortlessly, as if there isn’t any possible answer besides yes? Joining Spirit Flow was one of those. Between Mary’s incredible healing energy and the excitement she conveyed when sharing her program, I knew learning shamanic techniques to incorporate into self-healing was my future. I submitted my application the same evening and joined her program, which began a short two weeks later.

From the first Spirit Flow workshop, which taught me how to journey and form relationships with my spirit animals and guides, I knew I had found a mentor, friend, and guide to help me achieve a new level

of healing and purpose in my life. The format of bi-monthly day-long workshops with time to integrate and practice new skills has allowed for mastery of the many techniques presented. I also studied Reiki a year ago and find it is a great companion to shamanism.

As I reflect on the last 18 months of Spirit Flow, it is clear I have reached a place where anxious thoughts or a down day are just fleeting moments in my life. The last time I had a particularly upsetting and worrisome event in my life, I journeyed to my trusted spirit animals and guides, asking for guidance on how best to handle a situation. I was able to ground myself, trust my intuition, and hold space for a loved one without it overtaking my thoughts.

As I continue the work of a year two student, I can see myself fulfilling my dream of helping others through energy work. I look forward to the remainder of my year two studies and on to year three. In addition to the workshops and check-ins that are part of the curriculum of Spirit Flow, there are additional activities to deepen our spiritual community of students and alums. Connecting with other students through our ongoing activities, including camping weekends, bonfires, book clubs, and other spiritual-based activities, are just the icing on the cake!

I have only recently realized that my work with Mary in Spirit Flow is leading me to restore missing or fragmented portions of my mental, spiritual, and emotional self. I plan to join Mary in the summer of 2024 on her yearly retreat to Peru, as the students who have gone share that the deep, accelerated healing that happens during the retreat is profound. I look forward to experiencing a true rebirth in the jungle. Spirit Flow has given me a healing toolkit that continues to grow and friends that will be with me for a lifetime. a

Regardless of what the gurus or certified life coaches are selling to you, a true awakening is messy. It’s raw, honest, vulnerable, profound, and not as wonderful/blissful as many make it out to be. Nor is it a “virtue signaling, hand waving, spiritual meme posting, look at me I’m spiritual and you don’t don’t understand my suffering” attempt to call attention yourself to seek external validation from others.

No, it’s far from that. It’s a complete tare down of the identity in which you’ve constructed for others to see, in the exchange for who you were meant to be. A higher purpose, a higher calling. A deep and profound awakening.

you so valiantly choose to accept the call, is to embark upon a journey which requires the destruction of the ego, the self, and let go of all perceptions of who you are (currently) for an opportunity to align yourself with your highest-self or highest purpose. You must be valiant and remain vigilant. And your character flaws will make themselves known, every step of the way. This is a daunting task, that’s for sure.

Peng Roden Her, LAc.

A true awakening is not changing who you are, but a process of discarding who you are not. An honest self-reflection of your propensity to entertain the darkness within. It’s a process of unbecoming to become. It is a process of aligning who you are (currently), with who you are meant to be (divinely)—the highest-self, divine-self, ideal-self, or eternal-self. In your true god/goddess like form – embodied within this physical vehicle.

THIS is healing my friends, and it doesn’t occur overnight. It can’t be found in the next book. It doesn’t happen after 3 weekend workshops and it sure as hell can’t be made into a certificate which can be handed out. No “human being” can validate how far you’ve come except for you and your higher power. However, you’ll need to be surrounded by like-minded individuals. Individuals who’ve already paved the way. Individuals who are pursuing their truth, their purpose, and who are willing to shift out of the victim-mindset and into a growth-mindset.

This is a Red-pill moment for those of you who are ready. I’m tired of handing out Blue-pills. I’ve been handing out Blue-pills for years. And frankly, I’m sick of it. If you want to play it safe, stay comfortable, and live in certainty…keep dabbling, taking classes, drifting, and gathering as many “certificates” as you can to appease yourself with outside/external validation. Pop your Blue-pills and go back to what you know to be true. Because you’re not ready for what I have to offer.

A true awakening, is the beginning of an identity crisis. You will experience much suffering before this can occur. And few, very few, have the tenacity to answer the call. If you’re reading this article “right now,” perhaps you’re being called. But remember this… you’re not special… MANY are called… but FEW are chosen. And here’s the secret. No one has the ability to choose you, but you. Your daily actions, habits, and routines determine your capacity for the calling. You choose you (daily) through removing habits which aren’t in alignment with your highest-self.

The whole of our identity is composed of a community of identities. And as you embark upon a genuine awakening, identities within you, which hold the lowest of frequencies will become more pronounced – unconsciously affecting your main identity and therefore, affecting your character. And your job, if

I say this with love. Unapologetically, but with love nonetheless.

But for those of you who are ready for the Red-pill, know this, there are multiple Red-pills along the way. And with each breakdown (which will lead to your breakthrough), you will have to decide what kind of truths you are ready to face. But more importantly, more valiantly, which truths you are ready to swallow…and how much truth you can hold down. The breakdowns will be hard, hurtful, painful even. Cognitive dissonance will be your normal. And there will be times where you will hate me, spite me, curse me even. Shake your fists and ask why. This wasn’t the awakening you wanted, but this will be the awakening you needed.

My name is Peng Roden Her, I’m a licensed acupuncturist, medical intuitive, and Master of Qigong. I’ve been studying martial arts, qigong, and meditation since I was 13 years old. More importantly, I’ve been studying myself. And man, Peng has many flaws. It’s not easy, it was never easy, and it will never be easy. But it IS simple. And I’ve given myself the title of Master out of necessity, not out of clout or a sense of entitlement.

Insomnia, interrupted sleep, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, heartburn, acid reflux, fatigue, migraines, vertigo, hot flashes, and other symptoms that won't go away no matter what you throw at it?

For years, I’ve been pulling my punches, watching the suffering continue – due to misinformation from well intended people. Vilifying and censoring myself, in an attempt to not ruffle feathers or challenge the ideas of others. Unfortunately, we’re running out of time. My voice is now needed more than ever. And for those of you who have been waiting for me, I’m sorry. I’m sorry that it took so long, but I’m ready now. True transformation requires HONEST self-reflection and nothing less.

Grab an acupuncture session from me and get a taste for what’s to come. And if you’re hungry for more, my next Qigong class will launch in February of 2023. Another Qigong class? No. It’s not another series of exercises or tricks to move energy. Classes like that are a dime a dozen. What I’m offering to you is a series of exercises which will lead to a series of transformations, the transformations can be earth shattering, so come prepared.

Not everyone is ready for what I have to teach, even those who think that they’re ready. If my choice of words and execution rubbed you wrong, good. This was intentional. It lets you know that I’m not going to be your cup of tea. However, if my execution perked you up and got you excited, GOOD. You’re my ideal client! I’ve been waiting for you, more rather, you’ve been waiting for me. Let’s not waste our precious time anymore. There’s much to do. Let’s rapidly move out of suffering and into healing. I can’t heal you, no one can, no one but you. However, I can align you to your higher source… and, I can show you the door… but you MUST walk through.

Let’s stop talking about healing and actually start doing it! Multiple Red-pills lie in your wait. It’s go time! a

JD Slajchert on Grief & Loss Healed with a Letter

I don’t think it has ever been more important to believe. Believe that the sun will outshine the clouds. Believe that the good will overpower the bad. Believe that the light will overtake the dark. We must believe, because what are we without the hope that something greater exists beyond? It can’t be that we’re just randomly here, without a purpose or cause. Or is it true that we are just something that exists for a short time, and then we’re gone, forgotten? To be honest, I think we have been grappling with this question since the beginning of time, but I believe there is something more. I believe we exist in life, and I believe we exist in the place that comes after life.

In my new novel, Darling, You’re Not Alone, I attempted to illustrate my idyllic heaven. Growing up, I think we all imagine heaven as a perfect place, where no pain and no hurt could bother us, but I think that heaven has less to do with feelings, and more to do with understanding. Heaven is a place where absolute clarity is finally achieved in a transcendent way. All the things we went through – good or bad – are explained in a way that helps us make sense of everything. But during this transition into becoming the angels we were destined to become, and while writing this book, I was pulled by this simple question, “Why is it that death is so hard on those we leave behind?”

In my life, I’ve watched many people struggle to cope with the loss of someone close to them. I’ve watched mothers grieve for sons. I’ve watched sons grieve for mothers. I’ve even watched strangers grieve for other strangers. Because, ultimately, experiencing death frightens us. But experiencing death is something that also connects us. We share the fact that we’ve all lost someone we’ve loved. Death is a terrible, gut-wrenching part of life, but what a miracle it is to even be a part of life.

As I thought more about this question surrounding the pain we leave behind for those we loved, an idea came to me. What if heaven did have everything to do with our time here being explained, but also provided the opportunity to share this knowledge with the loved ones we’d left behind? What if we were given the chance to write one letter, back to one loved on Earth, letting them know that we were okay?

Letting them know that it’s okay for them to go on and live their lives. That it hurt when we had to leave, but that we were hurting no more. That we were now happily looking down on them from a place beyond the clouds.

So, as a call to action, I ask anyone reading this to take a moment to think about who they would write to if they were given the chance to send one last message to someone. What would you write? What would you want that person to know? How would you want that person to remember you? Now, with that same person in mind, I ask, instead of waiting to write them that letter, how about you write it now? Because each day is a miracle. Each day a gift. Take a moment to write that person and tell them how much they mean to you today. Tell them whatever it is you’d like them to know. The opportunity to share our feelings and express ourselves is unique. The #YoureNotAlone Letter Writing Campaign challenges people to take action and make a difference by writing their very own “letter from heaven.”

I get asked all the time what it is that I believe in, and my answer is simple. I believe in people. I believe we all have the power inside us to be someone’s angel. I believe we all can carry the light. I believe in you. Give them heaven. a

JD Slajchert is an American novelist, public speaker, philanthropist and screenwriter. Three months after graduating from college, his debut novel MoonFlower was published in 2018. His journey as a writer found its unlikely beginning through a series of letters back and forth between him and a good friend. These letters later became the backbone of his first story. JD is also a motivational speaker that inspires individuals from all different ages and socioeconomic backgrounds to follow their dreams.

Know Thy Self


You have a powerful new vibrational energy to align with in 2023. The mystical energy of 7 is the energy known to be used by the Masters, Muses, and the Wizards. Last year in 2022 it was time for you to heal your differences and let go of conflict. Once you are no longer troubled by conflict, it’s time to explore the deeper aspects of who you. The energy of 2023 is vibrating at a very high 7-vibrational frequency and inspiring you to Know Thy Self.

The vibrational energy of 7 is encouraging you to explore the powers of your inner world. Your inner world is where you can access otherworldly ways to make your dreams and desires happen as you learn more about the art and science of using mystical manifesting energies.

This year the veils of consciousness will be much thinner as you become more aware of the innate powers you were born to use. When you start on your path to know thy self, you will awaken more of your innate spiritual powers. You will become more conscious of your many powerful hidden gifts.

Why aren’t we all using these energetic mystical powers today? Most often this information is passed off as crazy, impossible, silly, ridiculous, new age woo- woo! The adage proves to be true “If you can believe it, you can achieve it”. To make it come true for you, you must learn to trust the transcendent vibrational energies of 7 this year.

The interesting paradox of 7-energy is that not only is it mystical, but it is also a skeptical energy! To become a believer, you must see it work many times to make sure it was not a trick or just plain luck. One of the key factors is trust. As you begin to explore and harness your mysterious 7 energies, you will need to develop a strong trust in yourself and a trust in your innate abilities to manifest your desires. 2023 will be amazing as you learn how to use and apply your spiritual energetic abilities to create and manifest the life you dream of living. a

Memoir as Medicine The Healing Power of Writing Your Mess, Imperfect, Unruly (but Gorgeously Yours) Life Story

This is not just a book for people who love to write. This book is for anyone with a story, a life story, and we all have that in common. A story to tell. The author, with decades of teaching memoir writing, guides you not only to know how to write your story, but shares the story of her own life and the healing that writing can bring about.

Spirits Unveiled: A Fresh Perspective On Angels, Guides, Ghosts & More

Spirits Unveiled is a practical guide to interacting with the spirit world in every day life. Welch helps the reader be confident in knowing how to honor and enjoy these relationships with the spirit world and also how to set good boundaries with entities who you would rather “not” have in your life. Explore the energy of land, animal spirits, extraterrestrials, angels, and so much more. Great book to leave out on the coffee table as a conversation starter.

The Ultimate Guide to Crystals: The Beginner's Guide to the Healing Energy of 100 Crystals and Stones (Volume 16)

Author Rachel Hancock once stated “(she) felt a calling to help others use crystals to heal their lives.” Her journey to understanding crystals eventually led her to intuitively choosing those crystals that best met her own healing needs. As she progressed, she researched the healing properties of the chosen crystals and was on her way to becoming a Reiki master and certified advanced crystal practitioner.

The book is well balanced between the scientific and metaphysical. Scientifically, the reader is introduced to the differences between crystals, rocks, minerals and other terminology which can be intimidating. These terms are defined succinctly and in a way everyone can understand. The lattice make-up and Moh’s hardness scale are discussed to understand the appearance and delicacy of the different crystals. Finally, major mineral elements found in the human body and crystalline structure are described and connected.

Metaphysically, Hancock gives her “starter kit” of the top 15 crystals practitioners should have in their arsenal. She describes how to cleanse, charge and attune to a crystal, setting your intention for its use. An entire chapter is devoted to the care of your crystals and what to do if your crystal has become damaged. The use of crystals in chakra healing and balancing is another devoted chapter. Other uses for crystals can be found scattered throughout the book.

Of course, the actual guide to the 100 crystals takes up much of the book. Each page focuses on a new crystal with its name, major attributes and a bulleted list of its uses in spiritual, physical and emotional healing. A beautiful color picture is included, as well as a table about the stone, including recommended pairings, precautions, elements and an affirmation in its use, as well as more mainstream information. It would be nice if there were some sort of a color guide you could access by fanning the book pages.

While specifically titled as a book for beginners, I feel this is an excellent book for any crystal collector.
