Want to go Lucid before the next full moon? A new Lucid Ignition community is gathering

By Ryan Hurd

The moon is waning and maybe your own lucid dreaming practice is too.

I can help with that. Well, not so much with the moon, that’s a celestial body apparently beyond my powers of influence.

But if you are looking to go deeper into lucid dreaming, or if you have hit a wall trying to become more self-aware in your dreams, the answer is probably not a new miracle technique or sleep hack. Sorry/not sorry.

Successful lucid dreamers are those who learn how to leverage motivations into strong intentions, and then build what I call the “lucid sanctuary.” This is soulful mindset that doesn’t command the dream, but invites it forth.

Since 2015, I’ve been running seasonal online workshops that provide a supportive community so you can do just that: build your lucid sanctuary, learn how to put to use the most scientifically-validated techniques, and construct a strategy that not only invites lucid dreams but also impactful and transformative dreams.

It’s easy, it’s holistic, and most importantly, it really works. Once you learn this strategy, it grows with you, and you’ll be able to dip back in whenever you are ready for more.

What is Mystery School?  All the schools today are promising ancient knowledge and wisdom.  How can they offer it if they don’t even know it themselves?  Thanks to religion and governments, there is very little ancient knowledge left in this world.  Just like Magic, I will take the mysticism out of Mystery School.

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Holistic healing of the Mental Body / Mind is generally the first approach to the spiritual path, especially when dealing with any mind, body or emotional body issues. Learning to Silence and Quiet the Minds insistent call of mind-noise, distractions and attention getting behaviors. We heal by learning to listen if a talker and sharing if we are a more silent or shy person.

For those not in crisis, there are silent retreats (Vispasana) and peaceful heart and a more committed Buddhist Mediation practices in which there are several. Some of the issues the mental body has are more severe and should be addressed with a talk therapist first.

Whether we like to admit it or not, we need other people. Other people in our lives help to teach us about who we are. Their actions and attitudes are like a mirror that reflects to us not only aspects of human behaviour but also facets of our social conditioning.

It is said that our most dominant feature as humans, and similarly our most ignored facet, is that when we are speaking about other people, or things, we are actually speaking about ourselves. Because of this blindness we actually need other people in order to project ourselves onto them. And then perhaps in some moment of clarity we will gain the insight that our descriptions of others are in fact descriptions of ourselves. It is through our social environment and connections that a light may eventually shine back at us.

What They All Have in Common . . . New Moon in Aquarius

By Brana Mijatovic, Ph.D.

Take a look at the crystals in this email: what do they have in common?
You guessed it — all are offbeat, original, unusual . . . one could even say — physically impossible — and yet that is how they naturally developed!
What they have in common is that they apparently did not get the memo on how to grow in expected ways, like other crystals . . .
