Gifts from Lemuria – by Teri Van Horn

Gifts From Lemuria - by Teri Van Horn - Learn more about Lemuria and Atlantis
Throughout history, we’ve heard about how magnificent Atlantis was.

That it was this magical island, where humanity was extremely advanced and where we first learned to work with the energy of crystals, as well as being the originators of the Mystery School teachings of the Hindu, Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Greek, Roman, and Western European civilizations.

It’s been ‘common knowledge’ that Atlantean and Lemurian cultures have existed in excess of ten thousand years ago. However, I’ve learned over the years, that many of the things that we’ve learned about Atlantis and her sister island, Lemuria, were very different. [Read more…]

Meditation In Theory And Practice – by Kramer Wetzel

Because there are some questions that Google can’t answer….

Meditation - Spiritual Life Productions - Austin TexasMaybe 28 years ago, a mentor at the time exposed me to true Zen Buddhism meditation. Little tough pillow, a wood stand like a doll’s table, super-esoteric texts, and sitting zazen for several hours a day.

I was exposed. Material crossed my consciousness. I moved on.

In Austin, all those years, I developed a “walking meditation” practice. From the old place in east Austin, it was maybe four miles around the eastern loop of the hike and bike trail, and that was the first iteration. It gave me many experiences that have long been incorporated into my horoscopes and readings. There’s also a sense that I was answering a need for meditation with a walking version. Turns out that walking meditation is a formal process. [Read more…]

Special equipment is used in conjunction with a special camera to capture your essence on film.

Your aura tells a great deal about you. Getting an aura photo taken is like getting a picture taken of your soul.

Fairy Godmothers: The Lineage of Austin’s Metaphysical Fair – by Michael Abedin

What was the first metaphysical expo in Austin?

Long-time Austin psychic Elaine Ireland remembers the early 70’s at Aqua Fest, a ten-day August event featuring Town Lake drag boat racing, “Ethnic Nights,” and the créme de la créme” of Austin society riding in river parades.

Elaine Ireland and Joe Nicols - Austin Metaphysical Life Fair - Texas - Spiritual Life Productions

Seems numerologist Rita Brown did a reading for someone on the Board of Directors and got invited to read in the circular hallway around the old Palmer Auditorium, a geodesic dome where the Long Center now stands. Five or six readers came along, including Ireland.

“We started every day at noon and read until 9pm, ” she recalls. “There was a line all day, and the reader that was available was who next person in line got.”

Fast forward to 1994, two years before the big Whole Life Expo hit town, when Julie Wilson debuted Austin’s Metaphysical Fair. Declining health forced Wilson to step down in 1999, and she bequeathed her beloved event to Latrell Maples, who ran it until 2011 – when life once again intervened, and the Metaphysical Fair once again got bequeathed.

Integrity, and a left brain

The bequeathee this time was Marilyn Waggoner, who wasn’t a metaphysical practitioner, but was well versed in the community. With an engineering background (inspecting planes for the Navy, and hospitals for OSHA), she brought a new element to a metaphysical world not always grounded in the everyday world – a left brain, ready to organize, make decisions, and revitalize the event.

“I’m on the floor every hour, talking to exhibitors, listening to feedback. You can’t do an event like this without the utmost integrity.” She screens every applicant, and when a waiting list developed for exhibitors for the renamed Metaphysical Life Fair, she started another quarterly two-day event strictly for holistic practitioners – the Holistic Life Fair, naturally.

Staying in Balance with Solstices and Equinoxes – By Kate Braun

One of the things I look for in my Tarot readings is the state of balance or imbalance in my clients’ lives.

When we are balanced, life tends to be easier to manage; when we are out of balance, it can be harder to make decisions or to see what the better option might be.

While I cannot and will not tell my clients what to do or how to live their lives, I do strive to help them find a better balance from which to make better choices. Balance is not only a matter of conscious thinking, it is also connected to the seasonal rhythms of Planet Earth.

Since these seasonal rhythms are felt by everyone, Spirit prompts me to share these thoughts with you.

Winter Solstice Sunrise at Stonehenge 1980’s

Dear Reader…

Balance is an important part of our lives. We strive to maintain balance between work and play, waking and sleeping, friends and family. There is also the balance we notice, consciously or not, as seasons progress during the year, especially in the Solstices and Equinoxes.

Solstices have to do with the most noticeable differences between daylight and dark hours. The word “solstice” [Read more…]

Pranic Healing: It’s not Magic! It’s Just Energy!

By Renée Deubner


Ever had that uneasy tightness in your chest making it difficult to breathe?  Why, yes!  Hello, stress!

Stress and I have had a long relationship.  I would do yoga and meditations to feel better and alleviate stress, but it always kept coming back as soon as I was off the mat or the cushion.  I was taking the steps to live more stress-free, but I felt as though I was only getting so far with it.

That’s when I wandered into a pro-bono pranic energy healing clinic in Austin to give it a try.  What in the world did I have to lose?  It’s just energy!  Well, I did lose something ~ that tightness in my chest as well as a huge weight off my shoulders!  I came back week after week to release my stress, worry and anxiety.  I learned quickly that it’s not a one-and-done kind of healing.  The emotional junk comes back, or rather, new junk comes up to be released.  Now I’m a volunteer pranic energy healer in the same pro-bono clinic, helping others deal with their emotional and physical pain, and I have a much greater appreciation for how energy affects the body.

Pranic healing focuses on cleaning and energizing the major and minor chakras (energy centers) of body as well as the functions and organs related to those chakras.  pranic healing hand ball of energy - designed by Aberrant CrochetCertain chakras and organs hold onto negative emotions that can make us feel yucky!  Who knew that anger gets trapped in the liver?  And, guess where stress lives in the body?  Right where the tightness in the chest is felt: the solar plexus.  Just because stress is held in the solar plexus doesn’t mean that it’s not felt all over the body!  Tight jaw?  Grinding teeth?  Palpitations of the heart?  All the chakras, organs and their functions are related.

Pranic energy healing can remove this negative energy, but there’s a small caveat.  The patient has to be willing on some level to let it go, or the benefits of a healing will be brief.  And here’s caveat number 2:  long-term, long-lasting healing requires the patient to try to examine the emotional issue and then say, “I’m so done with this!!”  To me as a healer, the difference in the weight of the energy I’m clearing between someone who is ready to shift and someone who’s not ready to let go is like a bag of feathers versus a 200 lb. weight.  The feathers fly off the body whereas the 200 lb. weight is solid and sometimes refuses to move.

As a pranic healer, do I still get stressed?  You bet.  That’s part of living, BUT it’s nothing like it was before.  I have the awareness of when it shows up and some wonderful tools for dealing with it.

There’s nothing magical about pranic healing.  It’s just energy, and energy is infinite!  Do you think you might want to try it?  The pro-bono pranic healing clinics are a great way to see what it’s all about.  Check out Austin Pranic Healing on http://MeetUp.com for a clinic location near you.
