Dear Spirit Journeyer

The path and vision of Spirit Essence Connection is to be a vehicle for sharing stimulating ideas, inspiring concepts and thought-provoking information that serve to enhance the overall well-being and consciousness of the community of healers and souls that are actively pursuing the highest possible evolution of human potential and transformation.

In December's Shamans' Network eNews, Renee and I shared that we were considering some changes in the Newsletter in 2007. We are grateful to all of you who responded to our inquiry regarding your views and opinions. Your enthusiasm and support for what has developed in the last 6 months has been incredible and deeply appreciated. As Renee and I have reviewed our goals and desires we have come to the realization that the Shamans' Network eNews has grown beyond our expectations. In our desire to support each other in our heart's path we have decided that it is best for it to become two separate newsletters which will have their own unique focus. Renee's newsletter will be focusing on her passion and desire to assist practitioners in their quest for building conscious businesses ... and this newsletter will concentrate on bringing the world-wide community connection, inspiration and knowledge.

As We Have Begun A New Cycle...
 
A New Year ...Embracing Who We Are ...
Stevi headshot - gold

Our tradition as a society is to honor the end of our calendar year with review and reflection so that we start our new year with the hopes of our dreams and desires manifesting in a clear and potent manner. There are two official new years ... January 1 ... which most of the world celebrates as the New Year and February 18th which is the Chinese New Year (the year of the Pig for 2007). What I have realized is that everyday is the beginning of a new year and that we have the choice to begin our new cycle whenever we choose to. So, if by chance you have not already taken the time to consciously look at what you want the next year of your life to be ... there is no time like the present.

Most of us are aware that we are living in a very powerful time when the air we breathe virtually sizzles with the energy of change. We discover more about how are minds, hearts, energy, souls, bodies and planet work on a daily basis. We know that our thoughts and actions are the creators of our world and we must take responsibility for where we are and what we have created ~ and more importantly what we intend to create. We know that we are connected energetically and now see that emphasized and demonstrated in our literal world by the ways in which we communicate through phones, television, satellites and the world wide network via computers that has now become commonplace, when just a mere 6-8 years ago many of us did not even have email addresses. It is more important than ever before that we act from a place of clear intent as we traverse the landscape of our lives.

As we set about manifesting our dreams we must clear away the debris and patterns of our present and our past, whether conscious or unconscious, so that we have an unobstructed pathway to direct our energy towards our Soul’s path, Soul’s passion, and Soul’s truth. The creation and manifestation that I am talking about is not that of our Ego’s desires. We all know that we can get attached to having “things” and to our list of “wants” which can be an endless shopping list of items that accumulate around us but never truly fulfill what our hearts and souls are yearning for. What I am talking about is getting beyond the Ego to our Soul. To a place where we listen deep within ourselves to what our Soul is telling us about our lives and where it wants to go. It is so simple and yet it can seem so elusive.

There are many theories and postulations about the almighty EGO. Some traditions suggest that you must slay it ... do away with it ... quiet it ... or ignore it. For me, I choose to make a friend of it ... to take it along on the journey and to learn from it. It is very useful really! It shows us where we are stuck, how we get enmeshed in our physical and emotional world ... how we get sidetracked from our true path and how we are connected or disconnected to the world that we live in. How do we know when our friend the Ego is running our lives? Mostly we know because we find that we are projecting onto others what we don’t want to see in ourselves (often this is our shadow work), we are shaming and blaming ourselves and others, we are looking outside of ourselves for our happiness, we think that making more money or having more things is the answer to our feeling fulfilled, we think that the right relationship will make us feel less lonely, that if we are thinner or healthier our lives will be better and the list goes on. Needless to say, this is not the place that we want to manifest our dreams from because no matter how much we accumulate or manifest those dreams they never fulfill us and we keep making another list in the hopes that something or someone will finally make us feel whole.

So, you may be asking ... if not from the Ego then from where? Since what most of us are about is becoming the holders of high frequency and vibration and therefore the clearest vessels that we can be, so that we can be a valuable asset to our world in the midst of the changes that are occurring, what I see is that we want to manifest our dreams and desires from the wisdom of our Soul. How do we do that? We continue to explore and expunge the debris, files, imprints, and clutter of our minds and get to the place where we can clearly define what our Soul’s really feel is to our above and highest good.

Much of this clearing work can be done on your own. In the last few years, it has been my honor and privilege to work with Anneliese Hagemann who dedicated the last 20 or more years of her life to developing a system of clearing and questioning that uses the ancient art of dowsing (the use of a tool such as a pendulum to divine answers). The system that she has developed is in her books “To Our Health” (published in five languages) and “Life’s Path and Soul Mission” is a part of the foundation for my own personal work as well as my work with clients. It allows you to clear and balance issues in an easy and powerful manner. Once you have cleared away the debris you can dowse to discover what you Soul’s desires are. You do this by once again making a list of wants, desires, dreams and possibilities and then opening yourself to hearing yours Soul’s perspective. This is truly an enlightening experience. And now it is time to create the visual map of your Soul’s preferences that will remind you of where you are going and what will manifest in your life. This is done by using words and pictures that represent your Soul’s desires, to create a collage that gives you a pathway to manifesting your life’s path and mission.

I share this with you knowing that this is a method and process that has greatly assisted me in creating a life worth living ... a life filled with a deep sense of gratitude and awareness that I am on my path and that I am manifesting my Soul’s desires each and every day. There are many processes and techniques available to assist one in doing this kind of work and I know this is only one. I hope that whatever method that you use to propel you onto your Soul’s truth, passion and path that you do it today ... that you find the way that works for you and that this year is one of magic, love, peace, harmony and joy.

May the Light of your Soul Shine in all that you bring to the world!

Love & Blessings,

Stevi


The Year of the Pig 2007
 
Celebrating the Cycles
pig

The Year of the Pig begins on the new Moon of February 17, 2007. Eat, drink and be merry. Then do it again. Pig year is a time of fun and self indulgence. It’s also a time of peace, harmony, understanding and sisterhood. Ease and enjoyment of life will be valued more than power and status. We can be kinder to each other in our everyday interactions and feel little need for competition. Extravagant vacations, sumptuous meals and lavish spending on luxuries and fine clothing are to be expected. It’s easy to become content and satisfied, ignoring the bills that accumulate during Pig year. The following Rat year will be time to face reality after Pig year indulgences, so enjoy now while the enjoying is good.

Don’t be offended by the word Pig! The wonderful beings born during Pig years (1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007) are kind and honest, peaceful in nature and dislike conflicts and arguments. They are optimistic, fun-loving and don’t hide emotions. They are creative and have exquisite tastes in the arts.

Pig correlates to the Western Sign of Scorpio, similar to the deep feelings and passionate emotions of Scorpio but kinder.

Mangosteen and the Hormone Balancing Act
 
Premium Nutritional Support
Xango bottle section

How many of you can relate to the following scenario? Heather is in her mid forties. She has been waking up at night with hot flashes, and during the day she is irritable and depressed. Her periods are irregular, and she's gaining weight. Her doctor prescribed her an anti-depressant, but she doesn't want to take it. Sound familiar? An epidemic of chemicals (the Birth Control Pill, pollution, EMF's, food additives, and even some skin creams) are damaging women's ovaries, where hormones such as estrogen and progesterone are produced.

Symptoms of Hormone Imbalances may include: dementia, fatigue, heart disease, irregular periods, increased risk for cancer, depression, fitful sleep, hot flashes, strokes, weight gain.

In years past, Western doctors would have given Heather some synthetic hormones (HRT) and sent her home. That was until research showed HRT significantly increases the risk of breast cancer. So what is Heather suppose to do?

There ARE natural alternatives for women trying to regain hormonal balance. "I have personally been on the mysterious road to balancing my hormones over the last 3-5 years... and have worked extensively with 3 different doctors over the last year. I stumbled across the Mangosteen fruit juice by Xango in mid November of 2006... and within 5 days I was beginning to feel my energy level rise. I could actually get out of bed without feeling exhausted... and in addition, over the last 8 weeks I am able to go to sleep without the aid of supplements or teas. I can't begin to tell you what this has meant to my health." I now realize how the mangosteen juice is really the building block for any natural hormone therapy. Mangosteen is an ancient fruit that originated in Southeast Asia. Ancient cultures used mangosteen to help with "women's issues", (what we now call PMS). In the early 1970's scientists found xanthones in mangosteen. A xanthone is a phytochemical, meaning it is only found in fruits and vegetables, and has been widely studied for their medicinal properties.

Hormones are just one part of the endocrine system and I could go on and on about mangosteen being effective regarding free radical damage, infection and clean blood ... in addition to the high antioxidant levels in this incredible fruit juice.

As with any good natural therapy, you don't want to flood the body with herbs, minerals, or phytonutrients that target specific cells or organs in the body if it isn't ready to support them. In the case of hormone balance, you need to have your endocrine system running smoothly before using specific supplements to increase hormone production. If not, it would be like fertilizing flowers using a bucket with a hole in it. No matter how many times you fill up the bucket, there is nothing left to feed the flowers. By drinking mangosteen juice, you help strengthen the cells and blood that make and transport hormones.

I would like to invite you to further research the material by calling Stevi or myself or checking out the product link. The above information is an excerpt from a brochure written by Dr. Sam Walters (except for Holly's personal testimony).

Swami Kaleshwar
 
Joshua Tree, December 2006
Swami Kaleshwar 2

Ancient traditions of healing are found around the world. There are shamanic traditions in Siberia, Tibet, Mexico, South America, North America, Africa, Europe and in most cultures. These ancient healing traditions come in many forms, with many similar and yet different methods of working. Personally, I have never thought of the Buddhist and Hindu traditions in this light until I met Swami Kaleshwar at the Institute for Mentalphysics at Joshua Tree, California in December, where he was presenting his Holy Womb Retreat. The Retreat from all reports was an intense and profound experience for the 200 attendees. It was definitely a surprise to me ... someone who has never been drawn to studying Eastern traditions ... to find that I was excited and deeply impacted by the Swami and his teachings.

In the past, I have felt that many of the Eastern teachings and philosophies did not come from an animistic perspective and thus did not connect to the earth in a manner that appealed to me. Swami Kaleshwar teaches that we must have a balanced relationship with the five elements – earth, fire, sky, water, and air. Swami Kaleshwar teaches that the energy of the five elements is what awakens a person’s divine channels. The five elements—earth, fire, sky (ether or space), water and air—are the five pillars of Creation. When a master awakens the spiritual energy in a student, the hidden mechanism causing the awakening is the five elements’ energy. This is why the Five Elements Process is fundamental to all of Swami’s teachings. And as if that were not enough to have peeked my interest, the Swami attributes his wisdom and knowledge to his connection with his master Shirdi Sai Baba, the Divine Mother, and Jesus. The resonance of his teachings with what I have studied in other indigenous traditions is just amazing.
