PERSONAL EVOLUTION and OUT-OF-BODY EXPERIENCES The main out-of-body experience (OBE, astral travel) training class is the Consciousness Development Program (CDP). It combines scientific and metaphysical knowledge in 40 hours of training that incorporates both practical and theoretical classes. Special emphasis is placed on the OBE, the benefits of which are wide-ranging. This program covers subjects such as:

• Non-physical dimensions • Understanding our Life Task • Direct Contact w/Spirit Guides • Over 25 OBE Techniques • Psychic Awareness & Protection • Process of Death and Dying • Paranormal Phenomena • Bioenergies (chi) • Healing during an OBE • Past Life Recall • Benefiting from Karma

Specialized OBE Lab at the IAC Campus in Portugal

� (310)482-0000 • www.IACworld.org The OBE is a tool that can be used to advance personal growth, self-confidence and self-awareness, by allowing us to have direct personal experiences by the development of our capacities, and to address the most fundamental questions of life such as 'what is the purpose of my life?’ The OBE is not a dream but a real event in which we can consciously travel to other realms, visit places, meet people, and expand our knowledge of non-physical dimensions. Over 25 techniques to produce OBEs and improve bioenergetic control are taught and practiced in the entire CDP course.

The IAC (International Academy of Consciousness) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit worldwide organization dedicated to the study of consciousness, OBEs, near-death experiences and paranormal phenomena. Call us or visit us on-line for more information!

Archetype of the Mother:

Goddess of Everyday Life by Sharon Hall


9

I

n every culture and time, the Mother is a sacred and revered archetype. And no wonder. We would not be here without the generations of parents who successfully loved, nurtured, supported and raised their helpless young to healthy adulthood. Take the human newborn. Almost identical genetically to a newborn chimp, it is way more helpless than our closest cousin. While a newborn chimp can grab onto it’s mother’s fur and immediately see and hold on as mom travels through the trees, we retain only vestiges of these traits, and those are lost within days or even hours of birth. We reach our potential after slow, patient nurturing and almost 24 hours a day protection in the early years, just in order to survive. The need for close and constant contact with a parent is apparently linked to the development of our impressive brain, with its highly complex divisions of labor and the ability to both learn from the past, and project into an imagined future. Through the use of our mind and our unique, opposable thumbs; lacking fur, big teeth, claws, horns, or scales, we small and vulnerable creatures have managed to dominate and subdue the earth. This is the result of superior mothering by generations of human mammals. Mother’s Day is a way to acknowledge the most important woman in any of our lives. Who else would have fed us, clothed us, protected us and in countless little ways, demonstrated daily the love only a mother can provide? I recall an incident from my own life that brings these qualities to mind. As a heedless teenager, I seldom remembered to thank my mom, like the princess I thought I was. One day I came home and dramatically announced I needed a costume for a theatrical competition—in two days. She calmed me down and took me shopping for fabric, which she paid for. She then sewed all the next day, and stayed up the night before the event to finish. It was one of the most beautiful dresses I’d ever worn, and I did well in the competition. I think I remembered to thank her--then promptly went back to my exciting, self-absorbed life. Not until I became an adult did I

Think of new ways this year to honor mom the Goddess and Mother Nature at the same time. realize how selflessly she gave of her time and energy in order to make me happy. Now I’m grateful we get to spend time together; now it’s my turn to give back. I can never completely repay her for all the love and support, the concern and care, the times she nursed me when I was ill, or cleaned up after me without complaint. Only another mom can understand that level of selfless love, and that’s why the Mother archetype is so universal a symbol of unconditional love and compassion. “Day of the Mother” gives us a chance to acknowledge both the love and sacrifice of our own human mothers, and to celebrate the Mother Archetype or Goddess. Whatever your personal, religious or philosophical belief, She has played a significant role throughout human history. In traditional Catholicism, She is Mary, Queen of Heaven and mother of Jesus. Mary serves as the compassionate intercessory between an omniscient, perfect God and weak, imperfect humanity. The month of May is named in Her honor. The Virgin has a crescent moon on Her cloak or under Her foot, linking Her to the other Great Mother Goddesses such as Isis of Egypt, who conceived a holy son on the body of Her dead husband. Gautama the Buddha is also celebrated this month. Born 500 years before Jesus, He is said to have been born in a garden, to a mother whose name was Maya, ancient root of the name, Mary. Another mother archetype--whose come into prominence and media attention in the last few years--is Mother Earth.

It is both relevant and fitting that we recognize this aspect of the Mother as we honor our moms. She has played a key role in the universal dance of creation, and we are reminded when we appreciate our personal mothers how much love and care it takes to hold and protect the preciousness of new life. Honoring Mother Nature reminds us why a gift of fresh flowers, or a living plant, are traditional Mother’s Day gifts--as flowers and fruit have always been the appropriate offerings for a Goddess. For both men and women, this is a good time to take care of physical health, with good food and rest, play, love, and exercise in the outdoors. For men, by giving love and energy to a mother, female friends, lover or a wife, a man acknowledges the Goddess within every woman. This makes Her glad and generous, for She is always happy when women are respectfully treated. May is a great time for women to plant the seeds whose fruition will come in the harvest season. We are called to surround ourselves with beauty and creativity in recognition of the Goddess we resemble, and to own our divine yet earthy natures. Think of new ways this year to honor mom the Goddess and Mother Nature at the same time: put a few herbs on her windowsill for freshness in cooking, or give her a plant to nurture. Help mom start an organic garden, even if its just a couple tomatoes in a container on the porch, maybe take her to a farmer’s market. Then make her a meal with your own loving hands, using the fresh, local and seasonal produce of Spring. Don’t forget to mother yourself this season; eat beautiful, nourishing food, spend quality time outside, and start new creative projects. The energy of the Mother, Goddess of Spring and Renewal, is bountiful indeed--showering us with hope, new energy, blossoms, rainbows, and the warmth of the returning Sun. Happy Mother’s Day! Turn the page for a recipe to help you celebrate Spring bounty. Local, seasonal,organic food is always a good way to self-nourish—-and to show one’s love for Mother Nature.

The Goddesses Springtime Salad ½ cup dandelion greens, cut into small pieces ½ cup chopped or torn rocket leaves ½ cup spring onions or chives 1 cup red or oak leaf lettuce, torn into pieces 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint 1 or 2 organic eggs, preferably free-range, hard boiled a few baby radishes, sliced thin 1 carrot, sliced thin or grated 3 or 4 small red potatoes rocket(arugala) flowers,nasturtiums,and/or chive blossoms (optional)

Dressing ½ cup walnut oil juice of 1 juicy lemon ½ teaspoon good, grainy mustard fresh chopped dill, 1 or 2 sprigs 1 tablespoon honey or agave nectar 1new garlic clove, chopped fine 2-3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar sea salt to taste Combine all ingredients for dressing in a jar with a tight lid and shake. Taste to adjust the seasoning, then put aside. Can substitute olive oil for the walnut, but make sure it’s extra virgin and cold pressed. Meanwhile, submerge potatoes in water and bring to a boil; cook until tender to the fork. Run potatoes under cold water to stop them from cooking and let cool. Combine all the salad ingredients in a big bowl, slice eggs and potatoes, and lay them on top. Pour the dressing over all, and sprinkle with the flowers. Enjoy!

This powerful plea that Julia Ward Howe of Boston, Massachusetts wrote in 1870 is generally considered to be the original Mothers’ Day proclamation. The famous lyricist of “Battle Hymn of the Republic” was appalled at the brutalities of the then ongoing Franco-Prussian War. What she did as a humanitarian reaction was make an impassioned “appeal to womanhood” to rise against war. Unfortunately, her message is still relevant, her suggestion for action not taken and world peace is still a distant dream.

rise then, women of this day! Arise all women who have hearts, whether your baptism be of water or of tears! Say firmly: ‘We will not have questions decided by irrelevant agencies. ‘Our husbands shall not come to us reeking of carnage for caresses and applause. ‘Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn all that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy, and patience. ‘We women of one country will be too tender to those of another country to allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs. ‘From the bosom of a devastated Earth a voice goes up with our own, it says “Disarm! Disarm!” ‘The sword of murder is not the balance of justice. ‘Blood does not wipe out dishonor, nor violence indicate possession.’ As men have forsaken the plow and the anvil at the summons of war, let women now leave all that may be left of home for a great and earnest day of counsel. Let them meet first as women, to bewail and commemorate the dead. Let them solemnly take counsel with each other as to the means whereby the great human family can live in peace, each bearing after his time the sacred impress not of Caesar, but of God. In the name of womanhood and humanity, I earnestly ask that a general congress of women without limit of nationality be appointed and held at some place deemed most convenient and at the earliest period consistent with its objects, to promote the alliance of the different nationalities, the amicable settlement of international questions, the great and general interests of peace.

USING HYPNOSIS FOR MEDIUMSHIP By RenÈe Starr , CH, © 2009. All Rights reserved

The idea of using hypnosis as a powerful tool for spirit communication and mediumship is a unique opportunity to go where such greats as Edgar Cayce and others have gone. The hypnotic trance state can be successfully used to help you communicate with the ethereal and spirit world by utilizing spiritual time or date regression. This means that that you are hypnotically regressed to the time when a lovedone has passed from their physical life so that you may communicate with them. This is also an excellent method for those looking to perfect skills as a medium; making it possible to open more easily to the channels of communication with the world s that are beyond ours. Often clients nd that they spontaneously meet with spirit and ancestral guides who are eager to assist in communications with those who have passed on. This is also an outstanding technique to ease the pain of grief, and allows you to complete unnished business that otherwise may never resolve. Included in your session of Hypnotic Mediumship is a trusted technique of psychic protection using white light energies and the earthís magnetic core. Sessions are always recorded for your records.

WHAT IS LOTUSTAR?

The Lotus is a symbol of the sun, of creation and rebirth, because at night the ower closes and sinks underwater, and at dawn it rises and opens again. This beautiful ower is viewed as a symbol of spiritual enfoldment; the lotus has its roots in earthly mud, but as it grows upward in aspiration toward the sky - its petals open to receive. The lotus is my totem ower, always reminding me to rise from the mud and reach for the starsÖand the stars are a spectacular reminder to me that we came from them once, in a feverish, dramatic explosion and landed here, on this earthstar, to fulll the sacred work of our soul; healing as above and so below.

THE MYSTICAL WISDOM OF TAROT

O

, Tarot! Mysterious, unbound book of the ages, we call upon you to reveal our story. We seek knowledge of the journey of the Mystical Fool. Choosing loose pages wisely, we hold our breath and wait for the words of prophecy. We close our eyes to watch, and open our mouths to silence as we pick just one card. The seventeenth card in the deck of Tarot is the Star, and she is a close relation to the Empress. Both are the Mother, with mysteries to reveal and to teach. While Empress is the wise, cloaked, and aloof Mother Earth, Star is the unabashedly available, naked Mother Goddess, causing our souls to stir. Star dances to the wind and brings hope on dark nights of the soul. If we were to watch her one evening at the riverbank perhaps this is what we would see: On the bank of a mercurial river, she quietly kneels to fill her alembic vessels. The night air shivers across her naked form, and the moonlight is nowhere to be found in this starry night. Purposefully, she balances her left foot on the soft, marshy earth and her right foot in the silvery dark waters. The Ibis and butterfly stay hidden in the distant shadows, but watch with reflective, shamanic eyes, waiting to drink these ambrosial waters. As soon as the large ewers are filled, she returns the

water from the right urn to the river. From the left urn she pours water onto the thirsty land. She repeats these gestures many times. Every time that she fills and releases the water, her skin glows brighter, and the night stars begin to shine through her. Being attracted to her work, they form themselves around her in a crown: four along one side, three along another and one above her head. Murmuring the Hebrew letter Peh, which is her sacred seed sound and the gift of speech itself, she becomes the Word in action as she casts the prayers of high magick and performs the kabbalistic rites.

She suddenly rises to her feet, and silently holding the vases high with shaking arms, she offers them to the heavens and cries out for witness. Mercury, messenger planet and conduit between Spirit and humankind, answers her call and watches, his red eyes burning. She then pours the waters out over her blazing, starlit body and her feet lift off the ground and she tenderly floats heavenward, levitating, and dripping with the waters of Life. She is Isis ascending, Motherqueen of heaven, and newly unadorned, she is the mystic sister, ready for the great work. She is Aquarius, the healer, teacher and bearer of holy waters. She is woman supreme, naked and finally revealed before you. She is sky mother, Nut, the speaker of secrets long ago lost. She is Binah, holy sphere of eternal understanding, radiant with higher love. As she rises up into the night sky, the seven sister stars of the Pleiades shimmer to receive her into their cluster. They sing her into transformation, singing her the sacred numbers of her being. The songs are lullabies of the deepest of sleeps; seventeen for individuation and for success and eight for justice, the law of circle and the blind return of deeds once done. Exalted, and securely affixed in Heaven, she is ancient Sothis glowing, she is Dogstar, she is compass light and she shines the way for those who seek the mysteries. She shines as the Great Mother, pouring her goddess light into our soul as we enter into the world on our own day of creation. She sits quiet and still on her simple throne of cloudless air, and the sister stars surround her. If you look into her obsidian black eyes, she will show you the way towards inner attunement. If you hear her wind-song voice, she will lull you into the deepest of meditations. She whispers that all things are borne through the feminine, the woman. From the night skies, she watches over you, her starlit heart open and willing to receive your queries and to teach you the ways of the above and the below.

RenĂŠe Starr, CH,CI, writes often of the sacred mysteries, honoring the ancient ways. She takes hypnotherapy to a new depth with her unique and powerful techniques: Shamanic Hypnotherapy & Ancestral Soul Healing Regressions. Former proprietress of ALKIMI, she is a certified hypnotherapist/instructor and past life regression counselor, shamanic practitioner, crystal/pyramid energy healer and clairvoyant intuitive spiritual counselor. She offers her services, classes and retreats in the US & throughout the world. She can be reached at 323.632.0947 / lotustarr@hotmail.com / www.lotustar.net Illustration by Vanessa Chandler

Massage - The Path of Love An excerpt from the book, Bodies Unbound by Cynthia Waring Matthews.

I

love bodies. I love every shape they come in. I love their smells, their texture, and their heat. And I love touching them. I have been a massage therapist for the last thirty-five years. The veins in my hands are like rivers. When I lay my hands on a body, just put them down on warm, soft, flesh, I am in ecstasy. I love intimacy. I love knowing secrets. I love to get to the core of things. Every time my work takes a person deep into the center of her being and she remembers the beginning place of contraction and how she protected herself out of fear, I feel fulfilled.

I have given over thirty thousand massages in the past thirty-five years, arriving at the homes of strangers with my table, sheets and oil. I’ve massaged every kind of person, from movie stars to babies; old women dying of cancer – no breasts; men from war – no legs. I’ve been a masseuse to your girls as a present from their mothers like some initiation rite. I’ve been a present to lovers on birthdays, coming to their house with balloons tied to my bag. I’ve listened to my client’s nightmares and massaged their mothers when they came to visit. My clients would say, “Knock some consciousness into my mother, will you?” These mothers had usually never dreamed of having a massage. They were women who had never heard about “positive thinking” or “reflexology.” They had never heard the words “emotional abandonment” or that it was all right to “grieve.” Many of these mothers had never had anyone on their side before. They were shy when I said they had nice legs or hair. They cried when I touched their faces gently. They’d tell me, “Don’t tell my daughter I feel unappreciated.” And I never did. These were mothers I never saw again.
