David Manning, Friend & Ally

Lucia René

I was warned about David Manning before I met him: “The moment you see him, you’ll know he’s family”. And so it was. Meeting up with someone, with whom you’ve had several past lives, is always a sweet homecoming. It was 6 months after that initial meeting that David and I got to know each other. Following my London workshop … Read More

2016: Your Back Is Up Against the Wall

Lucia René

In one of his books, Carlos Castaneda recounts a story of the Mexican sorcerers of old. They had completed their apprenticeships. They were well versed in the arts of sorcery (mysticism, shamanism, whatever you want to call it). Then, the Spaniards arrived and began to push through the country, overriding the culture. Suddenly, the sorcerers found themselves with “their backs … Read More

Susan Gash, Friend & Ally

Lucia René

I first spotted Susan Gash at Vilcabamba Ecuador’s renowned Juice Factory, a local hangout for ex-patriots on the village’s central square. Even in a crowd of people, I noticed her right away.  It could have been her physically beauty and grace.  It could have been because her energy is pristine.  But, thinking back, it was probably because her energy is perfectly reflected in her physical appearance.  … Read More

September Equinox and Lunar Eclipse

Lucia René

I think we are all integrating big changes. The past September equinox and lunar eclipse was ultra-powerful. It was as though everything got a good shake then the pieces spilled out and we are still waiting to see what new shape they want to take. During the blood moon portion of the eclipse, it took me awhile to identify precisely … Read More

Recommendation: Learn Dowsing

Lucia René

  Three months ago, I learned to dowse.  And I’m in love with the tool! Back in July, Susan Gash assisted me with my Vilcabamba Retreat. During the week, when we discussed things behind-the-scenes, she would pull out her pendulum and dowsing chart and ask questions—to what percentage has this participant cleared his process? Or, to what degree will this … Read More

September Chaotic Node

Lucia René

You have probably tapped into the predictions for September. Perhaps you’ve read blogs like Tom Kenyon’s June 21 channeling where the Hathors say: “…You are now entering, from our perspective, a massive Chaotic Node the likes of which your planet has not seen for some time. If unmitigated, this Chaotic Node could result in the mass extinction of multitudinous life … Read More

We Are All OF the Earth

Lucia René

In 2006, I traveled to the Greek island of Crete and was pulled to go to the Cave of Dikteon. Many caves on Crete claim to be “the birthplace of Zeus”, but my intuition told me the Cave of Dikteon had it, hands down. Rather than the birthplace of Zeus, I suspected it was something more akin to the birthplace … Read More

Reformatting Your Relationship with the Earth

Lucia René

Where does your allegiance lie? With the Earth or with her peoples? Certainly, the vast majority of us would proclaim some kind of loyalty to the planet. We are grateful that the Earth hosts us upon her body. We recognize that she has endured massive desecration, at the hands of the Patriarchy, as the 5,000-year learnings around power have played … Read More

The Secret of Selfless Service

Lucia René

After doing a significant piece of selfless service, I always receive an upgrade in consciousness. Have you noticed this phenomenon in your own life? It is the loveliest dynamic. Spirit basically says, “Thanks for being of service; now here is a gift for you in return.” And the gift is always a hundred times more magnanimous than the gift you … Read More

Control or Super-Fluidity?

Lucia René

Astrologers forecasted April 2015 would be a tumultuous month, and indeed it has proven itself to be so. My experience, and the experience of those I’m close with, has been several days of intensity (all things up, down, and sideways, as one astrologer put it) followed by a day or two of breathing space where things even out and settle. … Read More
