I follow two parallel paths with a foot firmly planted on both. It is often a complicated path but it is a path with heart. I am a Toltec shaman. I mix various Native American and Toltec traditions in my practice. I have completed 8 years of one on one training with a Toltec Shaman, best selling author and anthropologist and most important of all... my friend.... the late Carlos Castaneda. I also study various magickal traditions and have done so for over 30 years. My interests were sparked when I was young and discovered that my great (times 6) aunt was Bridget Bishop the first witch hung in Salem in 1692. I say witch because unlike many who were killed at that time, it has been proven that she was practicing some form of the Craft.
On the other fork of my path, I am an astronomer and private research scientist heading up a research project centered around a new technology that I developed in Trans-Dimensional Communication (speaking with the dead and other non-human entities) using both ancient and cutting edge technologies.
I am also a private researcher in the professional division for the Monroe Institute where I research and experiment with human consciousness and it's multitude of dimensions using the world renowned Hemi-Sync technology developed at the institute.
I own my own business run through several websites one being www.sacredsoils.com where we sell very hard to find magickal supplies and offer a wealth of information on sacred sites. I also host of The Shaman's Brew, a weekly pagan radio show. It can be heard on the air every Wednesday night at 8 pm EST on 105FM or at http://www.jackaloperadio.com on the web.
To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter; to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring - these are some of the rewards of the simple life. ~John Burroughs
Friday blessings to you. I would like to extend a special invitation to you to join me on a journey of a lifetime. A journey toward a new era of consciousness as we approach the dawning of 2012. http://www.paganspace.net/group/2012awareness
