Mystical qualities of caves

“Mystical Qualities of Caves: Mother’s womb, shamanic underworld, ancestral doorway, primal memory, spiritual death and rebirth, chamber of the heart, confronting fears, meeting of the shadow self, retrieving dismembered parts of the soul, solitary retreat and meditation, connecting with the Earth element.”

~ Michele Anderson, www.newvision-psychic.com

Perception and awareness are one

“The core of our being is the act of perceiving, and the magic of our being is the act of awareness. Perception and awareness are a single, functional, inextricable unit.”

~ Carlos Castaneda

Healing vs Curing

“Healing vs Curing: Curing is the business of medicine and has to do with eliminating symptoms. A cure will seldom ever result in a healing. Healing is a different business. Healing works on four levels: the energetic; the mythic (the level of the soul); the psychological, where you can test out new beliefs; and the literal, where you can test out new behaviors, new diets, new yoga practices, new exercise routines.”

~ Alberto Villoldo
