AOL Bulletin : 1st April 2020 – Academy Of Light Joins The Zoom Boom

Previous event: Shamanic Healing Online

Shamanic healer and teacher Mark Steinward joined us on Zoom, creating a sacred online space and guiding us through a powerful journey to meet our Spirit Guides. 
Despite a few technological glitches at the beginning, our Zoom session soon transformed into a deep shamanic experience, proving that distance does not affect energy work.
Mark began the evening by removing group fears and unwanted energies from our energy field. He then taught us how to connect with our own spirit guides. 
“We need to learn to become clear conduits for our guides. The more inner work you do, the easier it is to have a clear connection with your guides.” 
“At the same time, we also need to be aware that not all guides have our best interests at heart.”
Mark explained that it is important to call in the guides who love you unconditionally. You can do this by asking three times “Do you love me unconditionally? The answer needs to be ‘yes’ three times if it is a genuine guide. “
Mark then guided us on a shamanic journey to help us connect with our own guides. 
Initially, I connected to a fairy’s energy but suddenly I felt the presence of a long haired Native American Indian, who said his name was Red Chief. He had his hands crossed and he had a black tattoo in the shape of a leaf on his upper arm. He had a stocky solid body, strong facial features and a friendly smile on his face. I am not usually a visual person, so I was surprised that his image was so clearly etched on my mind.
Mark guided us to ask for messages from our guides and to journal the answers. I received a few messages. Do what brings you joy. Write daily and the answers will come. Face your shadows (fears) and be willing to be vulnerable. Show your weaknesses. Speak your truth. Be humble and stop protecting yourself.
When we asked our guides how to best navigate these unpredictable times, my guide’s response was to stay calm, be open to new experiences, and find beauty in every situation.
Some participants shared their guides’ messages. One of the messages was to expand, not contract and to breathe into the areas of the body that are tight.
Mark started working with his own spirit guides many years ago, after a visit to a psychic for a reading.
Over a period of ten years, he was guided to do deep inner work. He continues to receive insights from his spirit guides, which have transformed his life.
Mark has been teaching shamanic healing for 15 years, and founded the school One Tribe Healing in Perth. However, he regularly comes to Sydney to run workshops and retreats.

Monday 6th April 2020 Jason Snaddon : The Abundance Activator

What is true Abundance at this time of great change!
Jason’s spiritual & personal growth journey started in 2005 when he learnt that our focus creates our reality and the power of intention especially when it is created from a state of presence. He became really aware of how much he had been focusing on what he did not want so he got clear on what he truly wanted, from his own truth. It was then that he also learnt about intuition and harnessing the spiritual laws of attraction, through presence.
Taking what he had learnt, Jason founded Love Property, a successful real estate business which built significant wealth, running this business from a very conscious and spiritual perspective. 
After losing his Mum to cancer in 2014, he began exploring his greater purpose, and his truth at a deeper level.
What has unfolded is a uniquely powerful ability to channel, to shift energetic blocks and to activate abundance that is inherently within all of us.
Jason teaches that we all have the opportunity to contribute to a collective shift in consciousness which is very much underway. Jason will discuss what is true abundance.
He will share tools to keep your vibration high and the opportunities that are available to us through this time. 
And he will lead you on a guided channeled activating meditation to help you stay centred and in your power and create space for you to receive your own download.
Please have pen paper and water with you for this session.
