Accelerated Spiritual Development Language and Concept Toolkit

Accelerated Spiritual Development Language and Concept Toolkit

Those of us who work in plant medicine often have a focus on spiritual development. But what does that mean exactly? Even for those who don’t work in Ceremony or apprenticeship, the process is the same (just accelerated by intent, other modalities and plant work.) Understanding these concepts on a deeper level can take meditating on a mountain to digging through the mess until we reach the depths of the soul.

Topics Include:

  • The General Premise of Spiritual Development Work
  • Areas of Misalignment from our Natural State
  • The Roots of Turmoil (Inner Children in Need of Attention, Swallowed or Trapped Emotions)
  • The Ego Defense System (Active Defense Shields, Common Ego Tendencies and Archetypes, Individual Belief Systems and Energetic Structures, Dynamic Structures and Patterns, Collective Belief Systems)
  • Our Natural State (Pure Spirit/God, The Universe, Our Spiritual Thumbprint)
  • Channels of Receiving Information (Higher Self, Intuition, Empathic Nature, The “Clairs”, Flow, Synchronicity, Themes)
  • Getting Across the Bridge (Intention, Free Will Planet)
  • Natural Purging Process (Emotional Purging, Catalyst/Ego Triggers, Strengthening Inside-Out)
  • Settling into the Journey, The Loving Approach, Framing, Big Picture Stretch, Tectonic Plate Shift, Barometer Checks

Healing Core Beliefs (and new techniques we’re learning!)

Healing Core Beliefs (and new techniques we’re learning!)

Alright – here’s my energetic nerd-out. I’m going into detail about the actual spiritual development techniques we’re using along the way here (many are new to me – coming in on direct intuitive and higher self feeds). So this is long, but if you’re into this work, I wanted you to be able to play with some of this at home. Always set intent for highest good of all, and allow the space to be protected by natural defenses and the Medicine. I often call Jesus and archangels in the clutch too, as well as protector plants and animals. But don’t do it from a place of fear – it’s for what “space holding” really entails. 

If you’re new to this latest iteration of this unconditional love, spiritual partnering process with Zach and I, click HERE for the back story… Know that he reads all blogs before I post, giving full permission to share, as he knows that this work is not just for the two of us.

Consequences for Expressing Who You Are

Since the last attempt at trying to break through the walls filtering spiritual intimacy (and creating a few cracks, while realizing how strong our defenses were when it came to actually connecting at that level of vulnerability) so much has moved. Every day or two it comes into clarity what was being primed, loosened, and open enough to get down into the depths of our personal basements (where the defenses hide the pain and fear).

Two Sides of the Training Coin: Spiritual Development and Shamanic Apprenticeship

Two Sides of the Training Coin: Spiritual Development and Shamanic Apprenticeship

The spiritual development/shamanic apprenticeship pace has been moving at a speed I’d only experienced while living in Peru in active Ayahuasca ceremony. But for a person who is in a life purpose apprenticeship, the training never stops. It takes twists and turns, ebbs and cycles. But it never stops.

We reached some deep core beliefs the other day about the “not deserving of love”/”not good enough for love” fear that so many of us walk around with at the very root of our defense systems. It’s not always accessible, but when intention is set on this work, it usually leads to some version of those core beliefs…

Crumbling Massive Structures: Co-Dependence and Femininity

Crumbling Massive Structures: Co-Dependence and Femininity

Man, sometimes it’s hard to fathom how these processes work. But they do. If you want the background as to how the Universe set this space up, click HERE.

My Judgements on “Femininity”

So the pieces that I had gotten so far in this round of processing had to do with my judgement against what I considered to be “femininity” (way deeper than I realized) and deep-seated insecurity protected by a thick-ass energetic structure of ‘rescuer’ archetype applied to relationships (creating unhealthy co-dependency as a pattern.) Also a theme since puberty of chasing and longing for unavailable men.

The femininity piece clarified in a way I hadn’t seen before. I’ve historically prided myself on not being a “girlie girl” (a huge tell in itself) and been one of those “cool girls” who hangs out with dudes, or with girls who are also like that. I have a couple of more “feminine” friends, but who aren’t going to be spending time gossiping and talking about lipstick. Hear the judgement in my words? I wasn’t even thinking those thoughts consciously since they were dug in so far under the belief system.

I also had this longstanding hesitation with owning the fact that I’m bisexual. It’s not so much a cultural fear (since I already live in the fringes and have a strong rebel archetype – plus have many LGBTQ friends), but I couldn’t put my finger on why I didn’t feel like I actually was. It was like I had a sexual attraction to women, but not an emotional one, so I felt like that was false advertising or something…

Personal Spiritual Development Journals Return: The Whirlwind of Accelerated Learning, Healing and Unconditional Love

Personal Spiritual Development Journals Return: The Whirlwind of Accelerated Learning, Healing and Unconditional Love

This last month (during the Retrograde) has been simply wild. Amazing, Vulnerably uncomfortable at least once a day, and still embarrassing. It’s a new approach that is a straight up gift from the Universe. New techniques coming through. New channels opening. All outside of Ayahuasca Ceremony (but held in a container with the Medicine energetically) and for once, the easy, fluid, loving way. But still kind of crazy.

Click the article for the full story, but this shit is wild, and it’s just the beginning. Make sure to subscribe if you want to get notifications, because this might get very interesting 😉

Carbon Bodies

Carbon Bodies

I spent a lot of years neglecting the body and underestimating its vital role in our spiritual process. It’s literally the medium that we experience our lives through – and getting to know its tendencies as an individual is imperative to being able to understand what’s happening for us on a higher plane.

I once heard in Ayahuasca ceremony, you can only go spiritually as far as you can physically.

The True Gift of Spiritual Friendships

The True Gift of Spiritual Friendships

There’s family you choose, and there’s family you’re assigned to (whether it’s spiritually or otherwise is debatable). Then there’s the family that flows.

Spiritual friendships (aka – friendships that have been clearly made manifest from powers beyond are own) are one of the greatest gifts to humanity, especially on this path. Recognizing their true value helps so much. Because this shit is hard enough.
