Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself from Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life

“Emotional Freedom is a must-read for anyone who's tired of feeling frustrated, 
lonely, or stopped by fear."
-Deepak Chopra

I'd like to tell you about my colleague Judith Orloff MD - a UCLA psychiatrist and a pioneer who bridges mainstream medicine with intuition, energy medicine, and spirituality. She invites you on a remarkable journey where you can embrace more happiness and mastery over negativity than you may have ever known and describes how to stay intuitively and spiritually centered in our times.

Dr. Orloff celebrates the exciting paperback launch of her New York Times bestseller Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself from Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life. She is treating you to an incredible one-time book-launch offer with special gifts from herself and friends such as Dr. Daniel Amen, Dr. Joan Borysenko, Dr. Michael Beckwith, and more!

To purchase the book and receive your "Celebrate Joy" special gift collection go to:

In Emotional Freedom Dr. Orloff states:
“I’m presenting the unique process I use with patients and in my own life to view emotions as a path to spiritual and intuitive awakening (not EFT). I synthesize traditional medicine with energy medicine to offer you new tools to master emotions and become heroes in your own life. Inner peace leads to outer peace in the world.”

Publisher's Weekly’s review of Emotional Freedom says:
“Superbly written..Dr. Orloff regards emotions as a training ground for the soul, and views ‘every victory over fear, anxiety, and resentment as a way to develop your spiritual muscles.’”

Emotional Freedom has rave reviews from USA Today, Dr. Candace Pert, Christiane Northrup, M.D., Caroline Myss, Dean Ornish, M.D., and Mary Oliver, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet. They call it “spectacular,” “a must-read,” “a heartfelt, accessible guide,” and “resolutely compassionate.”

In the book, you will discover:
• Four questions to transform fear with courage
• What your emotional type is
• How to stop absorbing the emotions of others
• How to combat emotional vampires with compassion
• The spiritual meaning of depression and hope

Shamanic Ministry

There as many ways to be of service and be a Shamanic Minister as there are people on the planet.  It's less about what we do and more about who we are and how we live our lives.  You don't have to have a shingle out on your porch or be performing ceremonies and rituals to be a Shamanic Minister.  Many Shamanic Ministers serve their communities simply by being who they are, listening to a friend or family member, being present, and offering non-judgemental and non-codependent support to those they love.  Being a part of the Shamanic Ministers' Global Network is a way to continue to support the work that Venus Rising does in the world.  It helps us to extend this healing work to others.  By being part of the network, you help us to continue to offer this work to others so that they too can clear the outworn energy of their past and can walk the path of shamanic consciousness in every day life.  If you would like to learn more about Shamanic Ordination, please contact us at:  venusrising@shamanicbreathwork.org.  To find a Shamanic Minister near you, click HERE.

In love and service to the One Source,

The Power of Shamanic Breathwork

by Crystal Dawn Morris, 
Founder of Tantra for Awakening
http://www.tantraforawakening.com/


Over the years I have experienced may different forms of breathwork; from Lamaze breathing, when I had my kids, to body-centered therapy, and Osho's active breath meditations, so I wasn't expecting Shamanic Breathwork to be that that different from other things I had done before.

I was first introduced to Shamanic Breathwork by Linda Star Wolf and Brad Collins in Sedona, May of 2010. Since I was already familiar with breathwork and shamanism I mainly attended their event to meet them and show my support for their work. I was blown-away by my first Shamanic Breathwork journey. The combination of the music, circular breathing, shamanic healing and sacred art was profound. I recognized that this was something I wanted to become proficient at and share with others. Since then I have experienced the process 12 times. Each time has been powerful and unique. Over the past 9 months I have experienced many benefits from this work. It has unlocked and cleared old patterns and enhanced my ability to live in flow and trust Source.

Here are a few testimonials from others:

"I have found the Shamanic Breathwork Process to be incredible for me at a personal level. It has helped to open doors that I didn't even know I had. It has also been a remarkable tool to use in my workshops for health professionals."
- Lee Lipsenthal, MD, ABHM
CEO, Finding Balance in a Medical Life

"As holistic physicians, my husband and I are familiar with many different modalities and have seen the value in looking "outside the box" of traditional Western medical techniques. Shamanic Breathwork is one of the most powerful healing modalities we have seen. It gets to the heart of the physical, emotional or spiritual problem in order for shifts to occur very rapidly. In addition, it taps into the person's core strengths and honors the deep wisdom within us all, since true healing inevitably starts from within."
- Molly Roberts, MD, MS
Physician
San Francisco Bay Area


"I confess that I approached the technique of breathwork with some skepticism as to its value, having tried so many experiences that failed to make a meaningful difference in my life. Well, all it took was a one day introductory Shamanic Breathwork session for me to know that this unique combination of altered state experiencing of guided, theme based teachings was an extremely effective method of processing core level issues, issues that can be huge stumbling blocks to our spiritual progress.  I am truly thankful for the blessing this program has been for me, and would highly recommend it to anyone dedicated to their spiritual journey. Nothing I have experienced previously has been more beneficial. It has made a believer out of me in the work being done here, and I intend to support it in any way that I can."
- Buzz Gibbs
Businessman and Entrepreneur
Gainesville, GA

Keep breathing and tap into your power!

Dear Friends, I recently received this from one of our dear Shamanic Ministers who has been down from a surgery. I was so touched by her experience, I asked her if I could share this with you.   In our Shamanic Healing Initiatory Process (SHIP), that she mentions, we teach the Shamanic understanding of the Cycles of Change that we all undergo, and how to use the Spiral Path as a map to our process of transformation and empowerment.  May we all remember to keep breathing and tap into our power as we move through times of challenge on the Spiral Path of Transformation.


Dear Star Wolf,
Last weekend was our second SHIP. I sadly wasn't able to attend because I am recovering from the eye surgery I underwent to correct the hole in my retina. Monday was about halfway into my enforced keeping my head down to allow a gas bubble to press on my macula--the method of healing the hole. I was so down, and feeling so bad about not being with my SHIPmates over the weekend and so sure that the surgery wasn't working (key in soap opera music here) and that I would be partially blind for life. Then I saw you in my mind's eye. You said, "Now breathe deeply." You put one hand on my heart on the front and the other on my heart chakra on the back and kept reminding me to breathe. You stayed with me for a while, just a reassuring presence, reminding me to tap into my power. Later that day I went to my eye doctor, who told me that my eye was right on schedule and was healing great. However, I had to keep my head down at least until Feb. 14. I felt such relief, along with impatience with this slow process, I'll admit.  Thank you for helping me out with your higher self, dear Star Wolf!


Thank you, dear one, for showing up on the planet at this time and tuning into your Higher Self!

Many shamanic blessings,
Linda Star Wolf

Star Wolf's Welcome

My journey in life has been a spiral path of wholeness that continues to move through cycles of change taking me through many symbolic death and rebirth experiences, which I refer to as “shamanic portals of transformation.” I have learned more than I ever thought possible through a process I will share with you in my future writings, called the Shamanic Breathwork™ process, and the five initiations process called S.H.I.P. Once I have made sense of the lessons on my path and discovered the bigger picture, I am ready to pass on and share both my stumblings and my leaps along the way. In my own spiritual quest, I have always appreciated most those who shared their struggles and victories in an authentic way. That will be my humble attempt within the context of this blog.

I believe that we are all indigenous to this earth. I respect all my relations, whether they be human, animal, plant, mineral, visible or invisible ones. We are all related by the great web of life and sent here from the great beyond. Everything we say and do touches all parts of this magnificent web of creation. If I treat myself or anyone else unfairly, we are all affected in some way. Fortunately, the converse is true, as well. I am not perfect. If I am honest and have humility, I can admit that I will make mistakes as I seek to further evolve my conscious awareness. I can also make living amends by striving to change my negative thoughts and behaviors, and live from a more open-hearted connection to others and to myself. I have learned over time that all the changes I seek in the outer world must begin by looking within myself first. I have also learned that it is imperative that I have the courage to be honest with myself and to look at the “shadow” side of my personality. When I have had the courage to truly know myself better, the light and the dark, I have found the inner strength to change my life and shape-shift myself into the light of my true soul’s image.

From time to time I will share different programs and events that are being offered through my non profit organization (Venus Rising Institute for Shamanic Healing Arts) in my blog, as well as photos, videos and teachings, etc. But the main purpose of this blog is to provide an outlet to share the inner musings of my shamanic spirit and journey, and to hear yours as well. I look forward to connecting with all of you who intuitively know that you, too, are a valuable part of the shamanic process of conscious co-creation and evolution on the planet at this time. We each have a role to play and a soul purpose in the drama unfolding in our world today. Together we can create a better place for all beings on earth to live and leave a powerful legacy for those who are yet to come.

I believe we will all be remembered by future generations for the choices we make during this time of huge evolutionary change. In the words of the wonderful poem, “Summer Day,” by Mary Oliver, “what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

In Love, In Service, In Gratitude,
Namaste’
