a structure for spirit

The Full Moon in Capricorn is this Saturday, July 12th, bringing certain relationship dynamics to a head. Wherever communication has been lacking and emotions have been held in and back, prepare for whatever is pressing to come out on the table. Fortunately, Mars will also be trining loving Venus, which means if you are pure in your intentions to find a meeting ground and to resolve to evolve, your spirited talks will show the way.  Kristin Fontana, Evolutionary Astrologer


I recently returned to New York for the summer, grateful for the time and space to attempt to bring my book from chaos to order. Practices, rituals and ceremonies are woven throughout the book. As I was preparing for this upcoming full moon I thought to share an excerpt so you may use this time as an opportunity to transform your fears. For any ritual or ceremony, create a…

The Benefits of Shamanism for Children

Contemporary Shaman

027cd73539e4457638379f394939befdMany have read much about shamanism and how it pertains to the adult but very little has been shared in regards to how certain aspects of shamanism can be very beneficial to the child.

Looking back, if I knew even some of what I know now it would have been a great help. As I child I was incredibly sensitive, highly imaginative, acutely empathic, faery friendly and terrified of the dark.

I used to clutch my teddy bear (my inner child’s totem of protection) to my heart when I was very sad or frightened. I was fortunate to live in a home of love and safety but other outside influences made an impact on my sensitivity which made me feel very unsafe in the world.

Stand in the Center of Your Beingness

Wise insights from my soul sister D*

DeAnne Wolfgram


Many of us have enormous hearts and big visions.  We long to see people living their fullest expressions united together in genuine collaboration with mutual trust, authenticity and acceptance while working together toward common goals.  Many of us are continually taking action and creating this in our personal lives, communities and careers.  I am.

This vision begins… within.  Many of my colleagues and friends are embracing their own empowerment. They are continuously learning, teaching and modeling the “true power” that comes from withIN.  We are in a time now for discovering this power inside ourselves, each and every ONE of us.

It’s also true that ‘discernment’ is key.  Empowerment relies upon us listening to and heeding the direction of our own inner compass.  Others may not respond well to this.  They may truly prefer us unempowered.  We must empower ourselves anyway and learn to collaborate.  I had many lessons around…

Spirit can communicate with you while you are reading, listening to music or talking with friends. As an clairaudient, sometimes words jump off the page at me. Fellow mystic Fay Hart recently wrote in her newsletter of her “luxury problems” http://bit.ly/177JlBe describing the inconveniences she recently experienced. Somehow the word luxury has been following me around ever since; not showing up everywhere, to the contrary, but luxury has been hanging in the air, like the one thing you know you shouldn’t forget. 

Tonight this photo shared on FB by the Gypsy Junkie (color by Stacey @Silent Curiosity) jumped out at me too and drove me to look up the origin of Luxury, Luxuria.




self-indulgent sexual desire (personified as one of the deadly sins).

Woah!  That’s some heavy guilt trip! How many see luxury as sinful? If you embrace your own desires or feel any guilt around wanting more, perhaps this will help you see the root of luxury lowering your frequency?  Please ask your own team of guides to confirm this message if you believe you are carrying this resistance within you.

Shifting this belief could be key to your abundance. 

Let me know what you hear? 

Luxuriously Yours, Melynnda*
