Exercise: Finding Your Power Animal
Date: 2009-11-13   By: Llewellyn
Finding, meeting, and getting to know your power animal is one of the most important things you ever do. Your power animal is the source of all of your shamanic power and, from now on, you always will have an animal ally by your side. After I had learnt to journey and found my power animal, one of my first shamanic teachers said to me: “Mike,
Basic Elements of the Shamanic Worldview
Date: 2009-11-13   By: Llewellyn
Aside from the many cultural differences between ancient and modern shamanic communities worldwide, there are a few basic commonalities in terms of the underlying worldview shared by almost all of the people in a shamanic community. These include: An individual is both unique and indistinguishable from his environment. The entire world shares
Close Encounter of the First Kind: Red Rocks, December, 2000
Date: 2009-11-16   By: Llewellyn
From Messages, by Stan Romanek ...[M]y wife Lisa and I met online in the summer of 2000 and soon struck up an Internet friendship, swapping near daily e- mails. Eventually, I wanted to take our friendship to its next step and meet in person, but as she was then living in Nebraska and I was in Colorado, such a get-together appeared most
They Are Among Us
Date: 2009-11-16   By: Llewellyn
I was the lodge master of a German/American Freemason lodge in San Francisco, California. On a cold Monday night in December 1966, I had just closed the weekly meeting, and, as was my habit, I was waiting until the last lodge member had left so I could turn off the lights. One lodge brother was still present, putting on his overcoat and hat. His
The First Grand Lodge
Date: 2009-11-17   By: Llewellyn
In 1717, four lodges located in London came together and created the first Grand Lodge, the oldest Masonic Grand Lodge. It is important to re- member that this is the date given for the formation of the Grand Lodge of England, not the beginning of Freemasonry. For the Grand Lodge to have been created, lodges would have to already have been in
An Angelic Herbal Enchantment for Motivation
Date: 2009-12-16   By: Llewellyn
I designed this spell for myself when I was under the deadline gun to finish this very book. It was early December, and the completed manuscript was due in mid-February. My nerves were shot, as I was constantly interrupted by phone calls, errands, my kids coming home from college, decorating for Yule, and my other family commitments, not to
What is Gnosticism?
Date: 2009-12-31   By: Llewellyn
Gnosticism: (from Greek gnosis,” knowledge”) Any of a set of wildly diverse spiritual traditions that emerged in the ancient world around the beginning of the Common Era. Their exact origins are the subject of violent disputes among modern scholars, but Greek mystical traditions, Zoroastrian dualism from Persia, Jewish teachings, and early
Primordial Meditation: The Way, Truth, And Life
Date: 2009-12-31   By: Llewellyn
This practice is called primordial meditation because it unveils and reveals our bornless being and innate goodness, which is the very essence of enlightenment. In Kabbalah, the highest name of God is Eheieh, which means “I Am” or “I Shall Be,” and alludes to pure or primordial being. In many Christian Gnostic practices, the breath becomes the
What is Natural Magic?
Date: 2009-12-31   By: Llewellyn
Natural Magic: One of the two great divisions of Western magical practice, the other being ritual or ceremonial magic. Natural magic deals with the magical powers of physical substances—herbs, stones, resins, metals, perfumes, and the like. It has generally been much less controversial than ritual magic, and has been practiced openly even at
Healing Practice with the Five Breaths and the Elements
Date: 2010-02-05   By: Llewellyn
The Root Breath The root breath may be used to help conditions related to a fitful, speedy, dreamy, floating, or weak mind, or for individuals who may lack common sense, discipline, or clear and conscious direction. Coupled with working with the root breath, we may also seek out the earth element, drawing upon its stable grounding energy for

In today's modern society, we are trapped by our day-to-day lives. Step by step, and from generation to generation, we are losing our primal intuition. No longer do most of us feel that type of intuition, that which takes over our actions to protect ourselves and what is ours. The comforts of our modern society do nothing to keep our internal,... read this article
