Sky Spirit Shamans & the Sacred Journey of the Medicine Wheel

We are excited by all the interest in Sky Spirit Shamans. We already have several people enrolled, and we are about 2/3 full. If you’ve been curious to know a little more about Sky Spirit or the Sacred Journey of the Medicine Wheel, this post is for you.

Inca Medicine Wheel by Lynn Berryhill (http://lynnberryhill.com/)

What does Sky Spirit Shamans bring that’s unique? It’s a completely unique and evolutionary integration of several themes:

  • Galactic shaman Stargate practices to expand heart- and cosmic-consciousness
  • Guidance and co-creation with the Ancestors of the Land (North Americas), the Hatun Layka (Ancient Ones and Master Shamans of Peru), as well as Ascended Masters, Archangels, Spirit Guides and Star Families
  • Reiki and Stargate for raising the vibrations of the shamanic healing energies shared
  • Deepening path as “seer” through enhanced intuition and conscious channeling
  • Life coaching principles for empowered self-awareness, emotional intelligence and communication
  • The Soulsong of Ceremony as a mythic tool for transformation, with joy and ease

We ground the structure of Sky Spirit Shamans in the Sacred Journey of the Medicine Wheel, an ancient map of consciousness that’s used by many traditions. Our journey through life may be conscious or unconscious at times, but we do go around the wheel either way. When we live the medicine way, consciously, we experience the seasons of life – growing up, aging, and dying – differently. We journey through and around the wheel, but we also have the capacity to remain in the center of the wheel, with 360 degree vision and the capacity to borrow from the gifts of the entire wheel in any given moment.

We focus on the medicine wheel of the Inca, in part because their traditions were left largely preserved through the invasions of the Spaniards when the shamans and mystics fled into the mountains. It’s also the tradition in which I received my formal Munay-Ki sacred rites that I will share as part of the journey. We will fold in other medicine wheel teachings from our North American Ancestors as well.  There are several key archetypes that guide and inform our journey, while supporting our expanding awareness and consciousness.

We each develop our own evolutionary relationship with the archetypes, but this overview will help you to feel into them. Continue reading

This is the Heart of this journey, where we co-create such a colorful rainbow of Love, emanating out into the world, contributing to Unity and Peace. We know that the healing and wholing we embrace for ourselves, and that the beauty we create , all contribute to the healing and beauty of All-That-Is.

Liaison to the Light – A Guest Blog Post by Marilee Wintz

Marilee Wintz

Today we have a guest blog post by Marilee Wintz, one of our Reiki Masters and noted creative in our community and nationally. Marilee is an interior designer, photographer, painter, writer, author, mosaic artist, pottery maker, spa products maker, hiker, mountain biker, happy camper, world traveler, and so much more. I seriously have no idea how she can have so much energy. She owns two highly successful businesses, Sage Interiors and Beauty Inspires. Beauty Inspires is an appreciation and awe of nature, color, beauty, people’s spirit and our connection to the earth and each other. Marilee’s long held belief that “Beauty Inspires” is a sense that meaningful beauty awakens the heart and soul to living well. I believe.

When Marilee posted her story, “Liaison to the Light,” on facebook, I knew I wanted to share it with you. To me, it’s just beautiful, profound,magical and amazing.

And here’s her story.

Nyctophilia (n.) love of darkness or night, finding relaxation or comfort in the dark.

“To me every hour of the light and the dark is a miracle.” Walt Whitman

Dark, Light
Night. Day
Evil, Good
Yin. Yang
Death. Life

Sweet Sun. Circling the earth’s axis on daily rhythms that give us much practice adjusting to the extreme swings of light to dark and back again. Oh, I am so grateful for the daily pendulum of yin and yang.

Sitting on a sandy beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean, I was facing a moment of truth. As many times as the sun had sunk into the western horizon in my life, I despised sunset, the end of the day, the darkness. As a photographer, sunsets can be an amazing opportunity, but I never did capture them on film for the fear it would be the last, or some kind of superstition kept me from appreciating the ending of the day… Is there some lasting promise that the sun will rise? As final rays of sun say goodbye for the day, I wonder if I will be swallowed and eaten alive by the insatiable darkness. My demons arrive in full force at dusk reminding me of civilization’s clenching black fist trying to pound me into submission and pure blackness suffocating me with how hard it is to live.

New Dawn & Destiny

Ah, Beautiful Sage Spirit Community….

Do you know how you delight, enchant and inspire others simply by being who you BE?

As we navigate our passage through the portal energies of the solstice, holiday season, and New Year celebrations, I just want to take a moment to thank you All for being a part of our global community embracing spirituality and consciousness. Thank you for being way-showers in our collective conscious evolution. All the spiritual and personal growth work that you’ve embraced truly makes a positive difference in the collective experience.

“Ah,” you may say, “what of my faults, frailties and foibles? You are not seeing me as I am.” Or maybe I made that up because of all of those that I bear and carry. Continue reading

Mystical Myo & the Psychedelic Psychopomp


Beloved Myo, our Sage (May 28, 2007 – October 27, 2016)
Co-Chief Furry Officer, Reiki Master, Manager, Muse
Sage Spirit Coaching & Reiki

In loving gratitude for the outpouring of love and support from our community as Myo crossed the Rainbow Bridge. We feel so incredibly blessed knowing she is smiling and shining down on us all, feeling so much love from you all.

I know… I know… death is a taboo subject, for many death is a marker of failure and something to fight against. This post is about death, in practical and mystical terms. It may provide a map of discovery and a gateway to new perspectives. It’s also, of course, a celebration of life and of Myo in particular. I will share some of the mythical, mystical aspects with which Myo enchanted me even more than ever before. Continue reading

Into the Darkness


Darkness… who wants to talk about darkness?

On Wednesday night, October 19, at Reno’s Center for Spiritual Living, Alchemist Theatre will be presenting, “Darkness.”  In preparation, Jessica Levity created a wildly creative vlog with me, that you can access here if you have a facebook account.  Love her! Don’t you? I will also add some comments below to add depth to the discussion.

I can hardly wait for the show! Our Sage Spirit Reiki Family will be offering Reiki pre-show, so feel free to come by early for a relaxing treat.


What is darkness?

In our world today, it’s challenging to deny the existence of darkness. We see evidence everywhere, especially when we turn on the news: violence, wars, industries that senselessly destroy our resources for the profit of a few. In shamanic terms, we may think of darkness as “density” or “heavy energy.”

If we think of everything in our world as energy, which it is of course, there’s a range of frequencies reflected by everything – from slow, low, dense and dark vibrations to fast, high, lite and light vibrations.

Heavy energies exist, not only in our world, but also within us. Illness can be a form of density. We may also host energies that are not of us, including entities who have not successfully transitioned to non-physical (a family member or other person who dies frightened and confused of the passage) or darker spirits who may cling-on to our energy bodies for a host of reasons. Often we are not even conscious of these energies that drain energy from our central nervous systems, but they have the potential to add to our density none the less.

There’s another component of darkness to consider too, as that which is hidden or unconscious, cast into the shadows. Whenever we fail to own a trait or quality within ourselves because of our social conditioning and our desire for belonging, to be “good,” in other words, we form shadows that can create a lot of turmoil and pain as they operate beneath our awareness in our lives. We will talk more about this later to illuminate our shadows.

Is darkness necessary? Continue reading

Why Not Love?


Be willing to vulnerable, naked and rejected. – Trust that you don’t need a fortress around your heart to be safe anymore. Whatever you think is protecting you from the slightest possible pain is actually what’s blocking the softest sweetest most gentle healing love from finding its way inside. The willingness to be a transparent human being is the most courageous act you can do with your life. Be willing to experience whatever level of exposure, nakedness, or rejection that you’re afraid to experience, and you’ll find that what you were really running from was only in your imagination. ~ J. Ozwald

Ah, Love shows up in so many wondrous ways, and that doesn’t mean that it’s always easy. Sometimes Love is kind, sometimes passionate. Sometimes love has hard-edges. We may choose to cherish all Loves who help us to come into our enlightenment and empowerment, even the Noble Friends who seem to hurt us the most in the name of Love.

My wiggly way to love… Continue reading

Prosperity Portal

Psychic Medium Samantha Fe and I had an amazing opportunity to spontaneously create something to share with you, the video embedded below. During the all-day Stargate Gathering in the tipi on June 4, what came through was an amazing prosperity portal for light-workers to clear away money-energy blockages and to open gateways of abundance. A special shout-out to Laura Plato of Courageous Be for igniting this idea.

This video serves as (1) an orientation to The Stargate Experience and (2) a personal-community-global prosperity portal to clear your money hangups and to embrace the Earth and Spirit providing for your heart-full desires.

The more people we have tapped into the Prosperity Portal, the more amplified the energy becomes for all of us. Enjoy the story and orientation in the first part of the video. Then give yourself 30 min to relax, settle in and release your blocks around creating more prosperity in your life. You can use the meditation again and again to clear more blockages, reconnect with the portal, raise your vibration, and invite more prosperity day by day.

Please share with family and friends. We would love to hear your story of how the Prosperity Portal has worked for you in the comments below.

Thank you, bring me more.

Cultivating and Celebrating Gold

"May your path through the universe be a happy one, as you are swinging on the stars and dodging the meteors." ~ Mary Lee Fulkerson, A Basket of Blessings (artist unknown)

“May your path through the universe be a happy one, as you are swinging on the stars and dodging the meteors.” ~ Mary Lee Fulkerson, A Basket of Blessings (artist unknown)

Visualize yourself being able to recognize the raw truth about the people you care about. Imagine that you can see how they already embody the beauty their souls’ codes have promised as well as how they still fall short of embodying that beauty. Picture yourself being able to make them feel appreciated even as you inspire them to risk changes that will activate more of their souls’ codes. ~ Rob Brezsney

Being willing to lead with a tender, vulnerable heart reigns as champion-gift for ourselves and others. May you see others’ true hearts today. Bigger still, may you be willing to be seen, feeling the warmth of the sun kiss your face.

We have all been doing so much shadow work, looking deep within to discover the hidden and repressed aspects, those shaped by so much social conditioning to help us “fit in.” Today I celebrate all the golden shadows who BE in my world, those who show me the most beautiful aspects of the human condition and all the ways I may yet grow my beauty. Our Sagey-Spirity community is abundant with such BEings, who are willing to look in the scary shadows, and who are also willing to choose light, love, authenticity, transparency, self-care, altruism, service, faith, joy, fun, family, unity and so much more. My heart soars and my spirit flies ever higher.

You are the Heart-of-the-World. You BE empowered to transform everything… within and without.

Event Notice

Spiritual Speed Racers

Denise - Cloud Dancer

So how is your 2016 feeling? The following wisdom from Rob Brezsney pretty much sums up my experience.

“If everything seems under control,” said auto racer Mario Andretti, “you’re probably not moving fast enough.” I second that emotion. It applies to the entire human race, which is swirling through evolutionary tipping points at an accelerating speed. But it’s doubly apropos for you spiritual freedom fighters and renegade bodhisattvas, because you’re the vanguard shock troops fighting to merge heaven with earth. For your edification and amusement, I will add three corollaries to Andretti’s wisdom: Continue reading
