A Shamanic Message- Harmonizing the Instincts and the Heart
One of the best things you can do to improve your experience of life is
to bring your heart and instincts into balance and harmony. I like to
do this by working with the archetypes I associate with the heart and
sacral chakras, the eagle
and the jaguar, respectively. The sacral chakra, located just below the
belly button, is the seat of our instincts, our passion, our life
force, our creativity, our emotionality, and our se*xuality. The Heart
chakra is the great bridge,
bringing together energetics of heaven and earth and anchoring our
healthy, loving connections to others. The heart is the place where
applied love and compassion occur.
Too often, within the metaphysical community, I see people ignoring the
sacral in an effort to live solely from a heart centered place. The
trouble with this is that we are cut off from vital parts of our
experience and it makes it very
difficult to identify and hold boundaries. Furthermore, when we try to
disown our instincts, they can take over our experience covertly. Many
people walk around with their fight or flight response turned on
constantly at a low level; it
feels "normal" to them, so they never notice.
Ideally, these two chakras come into a dynamic balance, allowing us a
full range of human experience. Someone just in their heart loses their
power. Someone just in their sacral loses connection. Both, together,
represent power and
love, passion and service, personal and transpersonal.
We can effect this by working directly with each chakra's archetype.
Start by tuning in to the jaguar that personifies your sacral chakra.
Is she up a tree? If so, coax her down. Have you bound her claws or
teeth? If so, give them
back. What does your jaguar need to thrive and be a relaxed and
powerful kitty? What's great about cats is they're always completely in
touch with what's best for them in any given moment.
Then talk to eagle. How healthy is your eagle? Are his wings strong?
Can he show you the higher perspective? Once you have a sense of these
archetypes, set up a meeting. This can be in a shamanic journey or just
in your active
imagination. Facilitate talks, mediate if needed, in order to get the
eagle and the jaguar onto good terms, working together. As you see these
archetypes come into harmony, your instincts will relax, you'll feel
safe in the world, able
to hold boundaries and engage in dynamic self-care while actualizing
your soul's expression of love and connection.
A Message from Katie
I'm so excited to have my new ebook, "Sacred Travel- Practical Shamanism
for your Vacations and Vision Quests" released. I'm grateful for all
the help and support.
I'll be hosting Kay Gillard, a friend and fellow shamanic practitioner
from the UK, April 25 and 26. I'll be out of town playing in southern
AZ, April 27 through May 2, so if you want to sign up for a session or
reading, before or after
that is great!
If you want more shamanic content, check out The Shamanic Voice for my
monthly podcast and the podcast of fellow shamanic practitioners.

Sacred Travel- Practical Shamanism for your Vacations and Vision Quests
My new ebook is now live on Amazon.com for $0.99. I've submitted it to
Barnes and Noble, the iBookstore and it should be up in the next four
weeks at the same price. Here's the description:
Are you an energetically sensitive or spiritually-inclined person? If
you answered "yes", then this guide can make the difference between an
exhausting marathon and a dream vacation.
Imagine yourself hiking to the Sun Gate at Machu Picchu, greeting the
dawn from the center of Stonehenge, or standing a foot away from the
lava flow in Hawaii. An understanding of shamanic practices can make
these experiences so much
richer. Learn how to find the unmarked places along the road, where deep
healing, wisdom, and gifts are offered.
This book offers suggestions and practical advice for those new to the
concept of sacred travel as well as ways for those with experience to
expand their skills.
* Connect more deeply to the land while traveling or at home.
* Meet the guardians of the land and invite their protection.
* Deepen your energetic perception and discernment
* Experience the essence of the land more profoundly when you travel
What tools do you need in your shamanic travel kit? How do you set up
protections to promote a good night's sleep? You'll find answers to
these questions and more here. Shamanism can be called the Path of
Lightning. Here is an invitation
to dance with the energy of places you visit for deep healing,
activation, and transformation. May you enjoy the journey!
This book is over 22,000 words or approximately 100 pages.
Fr*ee Starbeing connection and audio offer
If you've read any of my books: Practical Shamanism, Sacred Travel, or
S*ex, Shamanism and Healing, would you be willing to write a review?
You can also review my shamanic drumming track. These are available
through Amazon, Barnes and
Noble, and the iTunes store, to name a few. Reviews are great for
promoting my books and my work, so if you'd like to support me this way,
I'd very much appreciate it. Posting a review in multiple places is
even more helpful.
As a "thank you" gift for your time and energy, I'd be honored to
connect you with a Star Being. I'll send you the recording Mara Clear
Spring and I created on Star Beings, including the guided journey.
Then, I'll tune in on your behalf
and anchor the connection to this very special type of guide. Your Star
Being protects you, empowers your abilities to shield yourself from
unwanted influences and helps you amplify your own psychic and other
abilities. To redeem this
offer, just email me with a copy of your review and where you posted it.
Spring Healing Ceremony
The Spring Healing Ceremony is about planting the seeds of whatever you
wish to nourish in your life and setting up those intentions to thrive.
For this ceremony, you'll pick one intention to work with. I ask that
you share with me what
your vision is and what the situation looks like now.
I begin by preparing the soil. This means cleaning up and addressing
anything that's getting in the way of being able to support and grow
what you're wanting to create. Some form of healing, clearing or
realigning is performed in this
The next step is to plant the seeds. This is where I put the vision of
your intention into your energy field and offer it up to the guides.
This anchors what is being created. Then I work with the guides on the
destiny paths toward
growing your intention to full embodiment. Finally, I get any
instructions from the guides about the care and nurturing of these seeds
and visions to bring them into being.
The following are the two options for the session format:
Email: When you sign up for the session and send payment, I'll
invite you to send me information about what area you'd like me to work
on. Then, within a week, I'll do your journey and email you an .mp3
recording about the journey.
Phone or In Person: We'll pick a time to meet in person or
connect over the phone. We'll talk about your intentions, then I'll do
the journey on your behalf and report what the guides have shared.
Munay-Ki Foundation Rites
Tuesday, April 16, 6:15-10pm
Location: My Healing Space
Limit: 8 people
The Munay-Ki are the nine great Rites of Initiation of the Medicine Way,
divided into the Foundation Rites and Archangel Rites. The word munay
means "I love you" or "BE AS THOU ART." The Munay-Ki are the nine gates
that heal us and
transform our human energy field into that of homo luminous.
To fully embrace the transformation available, develop the Munay-Ki with
Three Practices: Stepping into Sacred Space, Breathing Practice, and
Seer's Rite: Extra-cerebral pathways of light are installed that
connect the visual cortex with the third eye and heart chakra. This
awakens the "inner seer" and your ability to perceive the invisible
world of energy and Spirit.
Healer's Rite: Connects you to a lineage of luminous beings from
the past who come to assist you in your personal transformation. Awakens
the healing power in your hands so that everyone you touch is blessed.
There is tremendous
spiritual assistance available, and these luminous ones work in our
sleep to heal the wounds of the past and of our ancestors.
Bands of Power: Five luminous belts that are woven into the
luminous energy field (LEF) for protection. They act as filters,
breaking down any negative energy that comes toward the person, into one
of the five elements. These
energies then feed your LEF instead of making you sick.
Harmony Rite: Transmission of the Seven Archetypes into the
Chakras: First you receive serpent, jaguar, hummingbird and eagle; next
you receive three archangels: the Keeper of the Lower World (our
unconscious), the Keeper of the
Middle World (our waking world), and the Protector of the Upper World
(our super conscious).
Heart Song- a special event with Kay Gillard from the UK- sessions also available
Thursday, April 25th, 6:30-9pm
Cost: By Donation
Location: Katie's Healing Space in La Mesa
Kay Gillard is a successful a shamanic practitioner, teacher, writer and
broadcaster in the UK. She is the creator of The Shamanic Voice, which
offers podcasts on various shamanic topics. She has agreed to teach
while visiting San Diego.
Kay will also be offering one on one sessions on Friday, April 26.
Space is limited. Contact me at katie@... for more
details and to reserve a time.
Regarding the Heart Song class, Kay writes: "Those of us who love
shamanic practice have all fallen in love with drums and rattles and
other wonderful instruments that are part of our healing craft. Those
tools contain spirit as well as
music, and bring so much power to our healing work and our connection
with the divine. You yourself are also an instrument of the divine work,
and your voice is your most powerful tool to express this.
This evening of healing song will f*ree you from the reservations you
may have about using your voice for healing. I will demonstrate how to
use your voice to channel healing energy, and we will work as a group so
you will feel supported
and held, not exposed. After some warm up exercises to get the energy
flowing, we'll move to some simple but powerful healing work.
I believe when groups of healers come together, it's an opportunity to
make sure that these bright souls are receiving healing, not just giving
it. Every member of the group will receive a unique and personal
healing song from the group -
a truly beautiful experience.
When I run these groups, many people feel drawn to come along but a
little nervous about their voice or what to expect. Please let me dispel
some fears for you first!
1 - I don't care if you think you can sing or not, everyone can use
their voice this way. We are using our voices to channel energy, so you
will be releasing a controlling hold of your voice and entering into
flow instead. Trust me when I
say you will be surprised about the sounds you can make!
2 - You don't need to know the songs. Everything will be channelled
intuitively in the moment, so I don't know the songs yet either. Come
along, be open, and find out!
3 - You will not have to sing by yourself. The voices of the group will
work together to create the healing space, and I promise that the only
person who will have to put in any solo action will be me, when I am
demonstrating some of the
sounds we can use.
I'd love to see you for my first San Diego event, I'm really excited
about singing in a new place! If you'd like to join me please bring
along your drum, rattle or any other tool that wants to come with you -
or just bring your voice and
heart, that is all you will really need. If you have any questions,
please do email me: kay@..."
Healing Journeys for loved ones who have passed on
One of the things I'm most passionate about is helping souls complete
their journey after death with ease, grace, and beauty. Most souls find
their way, but some get lost or stuck in our world. If the death is
sudden or violent, the soul
may be lost or confused. Also, sometimes souls stay in a misguided
attempt to look after loved ones. When I work with the soul of someone
who has passed on, I start by providing a full soul retrieval. Making
sure all the soul parts are
present and returned can help an individual come into clarity and
alignment. I then call in loved ones who have gone before to help guide
this soul to the light.
Often our ancestors and loved ones who have passed on still talk to us
and hold space for us. Once they've gone through this process, they are
empowered to connect from a healthy, ascended perspective, rather than
as a frightened, earth
bound soul. If someone you love had a difficult life, doing this kind
of work will allow them to continue on their soul's journey with less
karma or things to clean up in future incarnations. I also find that it
helps those who are left
behind to heal more quickly and fully from the loss.
This work can be added into a soul retrieval by request at no extra
charge. It's also available as a standalone journey for $50 via email
or $75 in a phone session.
Spiral Healing- A Personal Shamanic Healing Program
This program is designed to place you under the umbrella of my shamanic
care and attention. I will help you juice up your manifestation requests

with people. I love when
I get to hold vision, connection, and support people in an ongoing way.
This offering is around my ability to hold profound space on a shamanic
level for your life to unfold for the highest and best. It is about
holding the vision for your
journey while working with the guides to call in profound destiny paths.
I want you to have what you want.
There are a number of different kinds of healing work I do for my
clients, depending on what is most needed. This program allows me to go
deeper, providing healing in specific areas. In a normal healing
session, I might do ancestral
healing if it's more urgently needed than extraction and past life
healing. In this program, I'll do all three and more.
Having shamanic healing work done in such a focused way provides an
opportunity for your soul to become healthier and stronger at a highly

healing journey related to the two topics for the month. The details of
the journey will be emailed as an .mp3 recording.
Space is limited. Prerequisite: Soul Retrieval

Spiral Journey- Relationships
How do you really connect with other people? What makes you feel
comfortable with one person and “off” with another? Did you ever wish
you had a manual for understanding this messy complicated thing called
“relationships?” Join me
and learn how to improve all the relationships in your life and attract
Imagine experiencing all the flavors of connection and intimacy you'd
like to share with other people, from the casual to the profound. This
class is designed to help you grow your ability to attract, build,
sustain and enjoy relationship
and connection to others. You will strengthen your ability to build a
rich network of relationships in your life. We will cover romantic
relationship, friendship, acquaintances, general community and family of
* Boundaries and discernment
* Compassionate communication
* Shadow work
* How to put yourself first and still stay in dynamic connection to loved ones
* Creating circles of people in your life
* Cleaning up past wounds and personal triggers
* Manifesting unconditional positive regard, from yourself and others
We will cultivate our ability to see the beauty in those around us, to
hold them in non-judgment and with kind eyes, while making
self-supportive choices about when and how we connect.
This class will also deal with relationships on a soul level. Often our
souls carry wounds from childhood and even other lifetimes that lead to
patterns of shutting down, attracting people who activate those wounds,
and not getting needs
met. We will be moving energy at the highest levels using shamanic
techniques. Expect a soul healing and the magic of manifestation to
begin to move through your relationships.
Format will be informal sharing and dialog, discussion of tools and
techniques, and experiential work, such as guided shamanic journey.
This class is the best match for those who are willing to take deep
personal responsibility for their pain and who are excited to see great
change in their lives. Class is limited to 12 people.
Thursdays: 7-9pm, July 11, 25, Aug 8, 22, Sept 12, 26, Oct 10, 24
Prerequisite: Soul Retrieval session
Cost: $220 (or 4 monthly payments of $55)
Individual and Distance Shamanic Training
I offer ongoing distance and one-on-one shamanic training. I've created
.mp3 recordings of my Spiral Wisdom classes that cover the various
topics like cord cutting, ancestral healing, shadow work, past life
healing, etc. The distance
training includes a combination of the recordings, email support and
individual sessions. Learn to talk directly to your guides while
embarking on a powerful personal healing journey.
