New Life Skills

“Life is a rush into the unknown. You can duck down and hope nothing hits you, or stand up tall as you can, show it your teeth and say “Dish it up baby, and don't be stingy with the jalapenos.”

Your soul arrived here with a unique dream of life. That dream is your soul's song. It is meant to guide your life. Does your life resonate with your soul’s song? Or has that song become distorted in a confusion of beliefs, illusions, and realities?

  • What is the difference between a dream and a fantasy?
  • How do you separate fantasies from reality?
  • How can you hear the true tones of your soul’s song in the din of contemporary life?

When you are not careful in maintaining and empowering your dreams, they become nightmares, bringing pain and disharmony into your life. Illness, depression, frustration, good relationships lost to dysfunction, and jobs that destroy your health and sanity are all signs that some part of your Lifedream is out of balance. This imbalance is a sign that you are giving life to your fantasies, not your soul's unique dream for the future.


Clarity is essential. The key to clarity is the shaman’s "dreamtool." The dreamtool is used during the journey; it is a tool within a tool. The power of the dreamtool is two-fold. It can be used on your present life to distinguish fantasy from reality. It can also be used on your future to distinguish dreams from fantasy. With clarity you can align your intention with your soul's song so that every breath you take energizes the manifestation of the most extraordinary life you can envision.
