Ancient mesoamerican shamans and modern practitioners of curanderismo--a latin american shamanic healing practice--divide each day and night into distinct periods based on the sacred rhythms of the sun and moon, with each time offering opportunities to connect with specific celestial energies for healing and transformation.In this hands-on guide to working with the sacred energies of the sun, night sun, and moon, curandera erika buenaflor details the rites, rituals, and deities for each part of the day and night and explores the sacred tools and techniques used by ancient mesoamerican shamans for harnessing solar and lunar energies.She explains how the sun is the source of soul energy that heals, animates, strengthens, and revitalizes us on many levels, while night energies are transformative and conducive for connecting with nonordinary realms.She explores rituals for dawn, sunrise, and midmorning to harness the energies of creation and new beginnings; for noon and afternoon to promote peak strength and spiritual wisdom; for sunset and dusk to bring about transformation, perform divination, and journey with animal spirit guides; and for midnight and predawn to facilitate shamanic dreamwork, connect with the ancestors, make offerings, and regenerate at the deepest levels.She also explores how nighttime energies are affected by the phases of the moon and offers specific practices for each phase.6 x 9 paperback book with 200 pages.

Based on an ancestral hawaiian shamanic ritual, the healing practice of ho'oponopono teaches you to cleanse your consciousness of negative memories, unconscious fears, and dysfunctional programming and grant yourself forgiveness, peace, and love.The process is deceptively simple--first you must recognize your own responsibility for creating the events in your life, then you are ready to apply the mantra of ho'oponopono: im sorry, forgive me, thank you, i love you.Repeated several times over a dedicated interval, the negativity is replaced with inner peace, love, and harmony--and, as the stories in this book show, sometimes even miracles take place.In this step-by-step guide, the authors explain how to apply ho'oponopono to traumatic past events, destructive thought patterns, family dynamics, daily annoyances, or any other disagreeable event in your life, from traffic jams to relationship break-ups.Drawing on quantum physics and epigenetics, they explore how ho'oponopono works--how thoughts and consciousness can affect the expression of your dna, the materialization of your goals, and the behavior of those around you.They explain how negative thought patterns and memories unconsciously guide your life and draw more negativity to you, perpetuating the cycle of bad events and clouding your recollection of the past.By apologizing to yourself, your memory, and the event in question, you can forgive yourself, heal your memories, and cleanse your perceptions.By reconciling with yourself, you open your heart to love for your experiences, yourself, and others and bring harmony to your mind, body, and the world around you.
