Sometimes things that seem the worst can often become the best. It is all a matter of perspective. And it is always your choice.
I’ve recently been through what has to be the most challenging experience I’ve ever had. And it offered the perfect opportunity to review past life trauma.
In the game called life, I almost always come out a winner.
How is that possible?
Because when times get tough, the tough go shopping!
Oh sorry, wrong lesson.
Because in the midst of tears and pain and the very foundations of my world appearing to fall apart, I remained open, vulnerable, and brutally honest with myself and those I love. And instead of falling into the trap of “Oh woe is me,” I took personal responsibility and spent hours upon hours reflecting inwardly to discover why I had created this scenario in my world.
And as always, when you ask the right questions, you ALWAYS get the answers.
The deep questions lead to several regressions into past life trauma, which resulted in many amazing and powerful discoveries about myself.
I am now completely free of an almost debilitating subconscious fear that has plagued me for centuries. It had greatly limited me this lifetime.
As I cried and processed and went on an emotional roller coaster, I periodically heard a still small voice saying, “The shackles are coming off.” It is a rare thing for me to hear a voice.
And then when I finally began to review this particular very intense past life trauma, it was suddenly, “Eureka! That’s it!” That makes so many things about my behavior under particular circumstances make sense.
And now the shackles are gone. I have been completely liberated from the burden of the false belief about who I am and how life is.
Ah, sweet freedom! It is totally euphoric.
The mere act of bringing the subconscious to the conscious (bringing the darkness into the light) heals at least 80 percent of the issue immediately. The remainder is typically healed in layers. That’s why certain issues seem to come up again and again and people think, “But, I thought I was done with that.”
And their metaphysical friends, teachers, and counselors, or their psychological professionals will gently remind them that it is like the layers of an onion – they peel off one layer at a time.
I used to believe that myself. That is until I spent a weekend in the mountains and the dolphins taught me otherwise.
So once this all surfaced, I just did the simple exercises the dolphins taught me to do in order to remove the past life trauma at the cellular DNA (encoded) level. And it is permanently transmuted.
None of the issues that I applied the Dolphin Spiral exercises to have ever reappeared.
A couple of months ago I was talking to Bayard of the Cure Show and we somehow got onto this topic of past life trauma. He suggested I tune in and ask how many traumas were influencing me on a daily basis – and to begin by asking if it was more than 100,000. I thought that was an outrageously large number.
We quickly determined that I had about 5000 traumas still affecting me.
He said that what I do must really work since the average person is dealing with 70,000 to 90,000 traumas.
I know you must be thinking – “If I have that much subconscious crap, how will I ever get clear and ever get my life to work?”
The beautiful thing is that many of the traumas are linked. If you had a trauma in one lifetime, that experience allowed you to take on certain fears, limiting beliefs, judgments, and expectations. Until the effects of the trauma are healed at the cellular level, then you will create another set of circumstances in another lifetime.
It gets really convoluted, but it boils down to whatever you believe, you create. So when you have a false set of beliefs running, you tend to create (draw to yourself subconsciously) situations that make that belief appear true. Then those events cause you to experience even more trauma. And it goes on and on and on.
So, when you heal something – particularly if you can find the beginning of the chain – the whole string of traumas just magically disappears. Wow. I am still in awe of how that works.
So after this recent round of healing core issues, when I tuned in about how many traumas were still affecting me, the answer was less than 1500. So the removal of this one major trauma took out more than 50% of the traumas I had been faced with. Lots of other things begin to shift when subconscious programming is altered.
For example, the average person runs a Bovis reading of 20,000. The last time anyone checked, my Bovis reading was approximately 400,000. After I did the healing work, it was approaching 700,000.
What does that mean? Well, I’m not sure exactly. But I do know that ascension is the raising of vibration. So I feel I am definitely heading in the direction I want to be going in.
And the circumstance that first appeared to be so horrible became the catalyst for amazing insight and healing. Like all circumstances, because of the way I chose to view and deal with it, it provided many priceless gifts.
The technology is here. It works. It is easy to apply. So if you are ready to jump up in vibration, to remove your own shackles, and to finally rid yourself of the things that you’d be more than happy to see leave, then why not get started.
Not everyone is sensitive to negative, detrimental, or disharmonious energy. But everyone can benefit from negative energy protection.
I read somewhere that a medical study done in a German hospital indicated that 85% of cancer can be directly linked to where Hartmann (or ley) lines cross the person’s body in their bed while they sleep. 85% is a huge number. Does that mean that we could prevent 85% of cancer issues by simply moving a person’s bed? The study seems to indicate that there is a strong argument for that.
Being in a location where ley lines cross is only one of numerous negative energetics that can cause humans and all living things a great deal of real trouble.
The whole energetic science of Feng Shui is devoted to working with and “curing” these problem energies in your home, office, store, and other locations.
I was delighted to meet Jami Lin. She has written several wonderful and highly acclaimed books about Feng Shui including The Essence of Feng Shui. Her newest work is called Color Alchemy: Self Mastery with Color.
There are numerous potential causes of detrimental energetics:
From the seemingly harmless act of someone being angry with you and throwing negative thoughts your way all the way up to elaborate curses put on you or even your ancestors, other people can seriously screw you up. Disincarnate entities or ghosts do exist. You can pick up the negative emotions of another simply by looking them in the eye or reacting emotionally to anything they say.
The more you work on yourself personally and spiritually, raising your own vibration and connecting more with Divinity, the greater your sensitivity will become to both beneficial and detrimental energetics.
Regardless of your sensitivity, clearing out the negative can hugely improve your health and your life.
Specific Questions About Negative Energy Protection
One of my Seed of Divine Restoration clients emailed asking a few questions concerning negative energy protection. I felt that the topics she was asking about could assist others. So I got permission from her to share the questions and responses with you.
Brenda writes: “Hi! I don’t know if you remember me, but I had a most wonderful session with you last November, the week before Thanksgiving. Thank you, again, it was most awesome and when I reflect on it, I feel this most incredible, loving, peaceful feeling!!
I need some guidance on how to handle a particular situation. I have a life partner that tends to be on the negative side. I have found the more spiritually in tune I become, the more sensitive I am to negative energy.”
Takara’s response: “You are correct in those statements and I think it will only increase.”
Brenda writes: “So, I have two questions. #1: What can I do to be stronger and not be affected by negative energy?”
Takara’s response: “Clear and seal your energy field twice a day.
To Help With Negative Energy Protection:
I highly recommend using:
- The free Daily Harmony meditation that not only helps you clear and seal your field but also helps repair any tears or rebuild an energy field that has been shattered.
- Clear yourself and your space with dowsing. It is extremely simple, fast, and effective. Also, dowsing is the fastest way I know to fine-tune and enhance your intuition. That way, you can receive insights, inspirations, and wisdom from within. It is a deeply empowering practice.
- A BioElectric Shield – I wear a gold one every single day.”
Brenda Writes: “And #2: What can I do in our home environment that clears and keeps away negative energy? She likes to watch Court TV and other TV shows that are filled with negative energy–I swear I can feel it coming right out of the TV into our home. Most of the time, she will watch these shows with headphones on so I can’t hear anything, but it doesn’t seem to matter, I still feel it. I explained to her that I don’t want my home filled with negative energy. She says she understands, but I think she thinks I’m crazy and/or weak and she continues to watch those shows. I realize it’s not fair of me to ask her not to watch them, so what can I do to protect myself and to clear the energy in our home?”
Takara’s response: “As a former police officer, Raven (my ex.) used to greatly enjoy watching Law and Order and I had the same thing going on. I could literally feel the negative energy in the room as if it was a physical negative presence.
Here is something you can do. See a giant funnel above your entire house. Like a cone with the wide end just above your roof and the point way up higher in the air. Ask that this clearing device be placed there permanently. It is like a great cosmic vacuum cleaner. It takes away negativity and transforms it with a full spectrum of light and frequency. Also, ask for (and imagine) a giant rainbow filter (rainbow light about 2 inches thick) to be placed in front of the television screen – as big as the screen. That should take care of anything being emitted. Redo those at least once a week. I think you will see a huge difference.”
If you have a hard time imagining the rainbow, then use any color that comes to mind – from white light to violet to gold to mint green. You will know the perfect color. And feel free to change it as you are guided to. Violet is always a good choice as the violet ray is powerful at clearing.
Daily Harmony by Debbie “Takara” Shelor
Just a reminder that the Daily Harmony meditation is a truly powerful way to start your day, keep your body and energy field clear of harmful, detrimental, or disharmonious energies, and to stay centered and at peace. Best of all – it is a free gift from me to you.

What is Shamanism and Who is a Shaman?
A person who practices shamanism can be defined as someone who sees in the dark (psychically, energetically). Another description is someone who works in the unseen or spiritual realms.
Shaman is actually a Tungus word that comes from Siberia. It is commonly used in reference to a person who has special abilities and training in working in these spiritual energetic realms for the healing of individuals, the betterment of their community, and for being of service to humanity.
The term does not mean the same thing as Medicine Man (or woman) or Holy Man (woman). These are terms that describe different types of leaders, healers, and priests within many tribal cultures. The roles of these people vary from culture to culture and follow historical and traditional guidelines.
In contemporary society, these words are often interchanged, over used, and misunderstood.
Today we have energy healers, herbalists, homeopaths, naturopaths, and countless other methods and modalities for healing. There are a myriad of devices that attempt to assist people in the healing of physical and mental or emotional dis-ease. Many of these modern approaches are effective within their scope of purpose.
Shamanism is Holistic in Nature
This approach to healing is multifaceted and holistic. The focus is on the whole person: body, mind, and soul. Healing takes place within the spiritual (energetic) realms and then affects the mental/emotional and physical bodies as it penetrates and affects the whole being. The Shaman also often recommends changes in the person’s lifestyle and thought patterns.
A person is made up of more than just their physical body. They have a mental, emotional, and spiritual body as well. These bodies outside the physical body are known as the aura. Each “body” vibrates faster than the one below it. The physical body is the densest. The particles that make up this body are the slowest moving and therefore can be seen with normal vision. Surrounding the physical body is the mental body. Outside of it is the emotional body and finally the spiritual body. These bodies can be seen by people trained and/or gifted with psychic sight also known as clairvoyance.
There is also the gift of hearing what cannot normally be heard, known as clairaudience. And simply “knowing” things without psychic sight or vision is known as being clairsentient. A Shaman uses these skills to work in the energy bodies to transform disharmonious energies.
Disease Begins Outside the Physical Body
From a Shamanic perspective, disease (dis-ease), illness, imbalance and dis-harmony usually start in the outer, more ethereal energy bodies. These imbalances or disharmonious energies in the energy bodies (fields) can occur because of many factors including detrimental beliefs and fears, curses and negative thought projections from others, ancestral issues, alcohol and/or drug use, negative thought forms, physical, sexual, or emotional abuse, past life and other traumas, negative energies in the home or workplace, entity attachments, etc.
If the imbalance is not corrected, it then moves inward through the emotional and mental and finally manifests in the physical body as disease. If you heal or transform the imbalance at the spiritual level, all of the other bodies, including the physical body, will be affected.
A Shaman has the ability to locate and work with these imbalances in the person’s energy field using energetic tools and the skills mentioned earlier. Assuming the person then takes positive steps to change their lifestyle, beliefs, and behaviors, true and permanent healing can occur.
Let’s look at an example such as cancer.
Western Medicine is Not Holistic in Nature
Western medicine approaches disease from a combative point of view using surgery and medications. They are trained to diagnose and treat disease. They seldom look for the underlying cause and rarely concern themselves with the mental, emotional, or spiritual factors. Therefore the treatments are directed at the densest lowest level, the physical body, of the individual.
This type of cure can, and often is, effective. It is also often only temporary. In medical terms, they call it remission because they know it is likely to return.
From a Shamanic perspective, since the energetic cause of the disease has not been addressed, no healing has occurred. The energetic imbalance that caused the disease in the first place still exists in the energy field. Thus the pattern will often reoccur in the physical body at a later time.
A few things have to occur in order for true healing to take place.
A person has to take responsibility for their choices and behaviors that have created the disease.
They have to learn about, take responsibility for, and make changes that will allow healing to take place. Then they have to find someone, a Shaman, who can assist them in their healing process.
Once the energy pattern is corrected, the person must continue to live a new lifestyle, acting and thinking in entirely new ways, in order to maintain their new level of health. If they simply return to their old patterns of acting and thinking, they are likely to create the same problems all over again.
Shamanic healing is a personal journey.
A Shaman or Healer is someone who can assist a person along this journey: to guide, to facilitate and to encourage. It is ultimately up to the person themselves, however, whether healing occurs or not.
Shamanic healing – like other forms of alternative or complementary medicine – is often done in conjunction with, or in addition to, traditional western medicine. (Anyone with a serious condition should seek professional assistance from a trained healthcare practitioner.)
Even some western medical doctors are studying shamanism these days. My former husband, Raven, had the privilege of providing them with a sweat lodge experience when they’ve visited Santa Fe, New Mexico for such training.
This article was co-written by Raven Hicks and D. Takara Shelor.
To learn more about sweat lodge and a few other shamanic practices, read my bestselling book Peering Through the Veil.
You are a multi-faceted diamond. The facets (aspects of self) you show the world (and even yourself) are only a small part of the truth of the totality of you. It’s time to awaken the Higher Self, the Diamond Self, and all the rest and blaze that forth for the whole world to see.
I often tell clients that “We are all multi-faceted diamonds. You are just used to only seeing one or two of those faces shined up and part of your personality and skill set. As you grow and evolve, more and more of the faces become clearer and part of the totality of you that you are aware of consciously.”
When you have awakened, you realize … Read more
When learning how to manifest your desires, NEVER get hung up on how the goal arrives, what it looks like in the end, the “how” of the way it should come into fruition.
I have the perfect example to share.
I’ve been wanting to take another cross country trip so I can stop in Austin and see one of my dearest friends. She lived in Santa Fe when I lived there. Even though I’ve been back to Santa Fe several times since moving to the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, since she no longer lives there, we haven’t managed to see one another in about 5 years.
So, from the comfort of my own home, the people I’ve wanted to see for ages are showing up at my front door. First, my friend David (someone else I’ve been saying I wanted to see) called one day last week and showed up the same day (he’s a Canadian who grew up in London, has a lovely British accent, and spends most of his time globe trotting). And now Maya is coming …
Instead of focusing on the trip I thought was required to make it happen, I was focused on what really mattered to me … to see my friend. The Universe rearranged itself and voila things are popping into my reality that I desire.
Every time you go somewhere new, you become a new person … with a new perspective, new experiences, and new insights. The more you travel and experience new things, the easier it becomes to appreciate cultural diversity, and to transform your life.
Tears started streaming down my face as I read the article and watched the video mentioned below about cultural diversity in the classroom.
Experiencing and appreciating cultural diversity is one of many reasons I love to travel. This is why I love moving to different locations, meeting new people and surrounding myself, enveloping myself, in the different energies of ethnicity, of belief, of tradition and history, of the colors and texture of diversity, in order to understand the beautiful tapestry of humanity and truly KNOW and become ONE with it.
Enjoying the Company of Others
As a young child, my father sometimes traveled with business, and on occasion, my mom and I would come along. We once spent a week in Birmingham, Alabama and every day when the housekeepers (all African American women) were finished cleaning the rooms, they sat in a circle of chairs at the end of our hall, told stories, and laughed. I begged my mom to let me join them. They said they didn’t mind. Every day I sat with them and listened to their stories and laughed too. I have no idea what they thought of the skinny little blonde girl from Texas.
As we studied history in school and I read about the atrocities inflicted on the Native Americans, the African Americans, the Chinese and so many of the other cultures by the white people, I would weep, not being able to understand how anyone could mistreat another.
A White Chic (chick) Living in a Non-White World
It was so odd at first to be living as a minority, a white woman in a sea of beautiful brown skin, dark eyes and hair, of the Native American, Spanish, and Mexican cultures of New Mexico. At 5’4″, I was actually rather tall for a female. It was there that I was so blessed …
I can’t see a dolphin in a tank or a pen, even in a picture, without shedding a few tears. I have been shown again and again that their freedom represents our own freedom. I long so deeply for humanity to wake up and be free of their own limitations, fears, beliefs, judgments, expectations, mistreatment of others and themselves (their self-imposed net or tank).
We have a choice to break out of our mental and emotional prisons.
They do not have a choice to jump out of their tank – although recently some have jumped out of the tank and some have escaped the net. If they wanted to be there, I don’t think they would do either thing. If a dolphin would rather jump out and die on the sidewalk than be stuck in a tank, I think it’s obvious that that dolphin is not choosing captivity.
The reason I feel the way I feel about wild dolphins vs. captivity …
Have you ever lived near a pod? Like neighbors, two or three times a week you see them around town (various locations just off shore of the little island you live on). They are your neighbors. You know them all by name. You recognize their saddle patch and their dorsal fin. When you see them, you get very excited and wave, saying hello to whomever it is. They leave sometimes (migrate) and you miss them terribly.
As soon as anyone on the island sees the first one return, they call and tell someone who tells someone else and it continues basically until everyone on the island knows that our neighbors the orca family have returned. There is great rejoicing. It gets announced over the radio, talked about on FB and on the internet. Everyone there loves the whales. Most of them have boats and they go out to see them. You feel great joy at their return.
You get excited and send loving congratulations to them when you hear someone has returned with a new baby. They are your friends. They become like family. You have a resonance, rapport, and love for certain ones that is as deep and meaningful as the fondness I have for a few of my most precious friends.
When one of them dies, you feel a great sense of loss and you send condolences mentally and through prayer to the family. The orcas are matriarchal and never leave their mother their whole life. They remain with mom even after they give birth. So now the baby is also part of that family. Their life expectancy is similar to ours. So a 3-year-old is very much like a 3-year-old human child. A 6-year-old is very much like a 6-year-old human child. Now in physical maturity and ability to have offspring, those probably don’t apply. But you still consider them the same as human children.
Hearing Lolita’s story changed my life. I literally left a high-paying corporate job to move to the San Juans to start a non-profit to assist in her return. Watching her capture scene broke my heart. When I met her, I felt as if she was literally my sister – in the truest sense of the word. I long for her presence and I cry for her situation. I know her and I know her mother. I know her whole family. For me, hearing what happened to her, the horrors of how she was captured, I try to imagine what it must have been like for the whales. That’s what they call orcas in the Northwest. And yes, I do realize that’s me projecting human emotions onto sentient animals.
I own stills and video of her capture. I’ve heard the man speak who put her in the sling. He was never the same and is an adamant objector to captivity. As he tells is, they used boats and explosives to round them all up into a sea pen. They were under great distress. The captors separated Lolita out and got her away from her mother and family. They forced her into a sling and they removed her from the water to haul her away never to return. John Crowe, the 18-year-old diver who was hired to help, said as he maneuvered her into the sling that all the orcas were screaming and they even lined up together and screamed together. He said the sound was deafening. And then, as soon as Lolita was lifted out of the water, the screaming instantly stopped, there was a profound and haunting silence. He found it completely overwhelming. He still gets tears in his eyes all these years later when he tells the story.
Since they are like my best friends and neighbors, I liken it to a group of guys showing up at your neighbors house, setting off bombs, shooting bullets all over the place and then stealing the 6-year old daughter. Thinking about what it would have been like to have that trauma and have my 6-year old child stolen makes me weep.
I developed such a rapport with the orcas that I could literally feel when they were present. I would be on the east side of the island and suddenly “know” the orcas were nearby. I’d speed across the island to the west side, park quickly, and scamper to the top of a hill. As soon as I sat down, the first fin would break through the water. And then for the next 30 minutes I would watch the family go past.
They are my kin. I love them to the depth of me. And capturing them and putting them in a tank simply is unbearable from that perspective. Tanks and nets for dolphins are the same as slavery and prison for humans in my book. Thinking that just because a dolphin was born in captivity “so it’s O.K.” is like saying “this child was born into slavery, so the child is not really a slave.”
May you have a truly blessed day,

Ah, glorious summer! For many, it is a time of joy,
For me, it is a time of joy, sunshine, water, and outdoor activities.
Having spent grade school in Texas, a few years in Southern California, and 10 years in New Mexico, I adore the sun and the warmth and activity of the summer. I prefer it to all other seasons. Although I really do love it in the spring when everything seems to come back to life and begins to bloom.
In the turning of the wheel … represented by the image (above) of a 9-Fires Medicine Wheel we built in Santa Fe, NM several years ago … summer is the time of activity.
In the spring we planted. In the garden, we planted vegetables, herbs, and flowers. In our lives, we planted ideas and things we desire to manifest.
The summer season is our opportunity to work to assist those things in growing. Read more
Someone was discussing how many people complain about living in a Spiritual Wasteland and think it would be much easier to live in a community in a spiritual location. Someone else in the same discussion mentioned how living in a place like Santa Fe or Taos would be absolute Nirvana. Both agreed that one can find community and joy anywhere.
I responded with “Right now I’m living in what many would consider a “spiritual wasteland” LOL Read more
