Technically speaking, we all face death from the moment we are conceived. The only certainty we have in life is that one day we will die. Yet in modern Western culture we shy away from this knowledge and dying is often feared. Dreams can prepare the dying for death, prepare the dying person’s loved ones for their death and help bereaved people to come to terms with the loss of somebody they love.

In this course you will also learn how to do an Aya Despacho. The Aya Despacho is another way to lovingly assist our cherished one to die consciously. The ceremony provides deep celebration for the life of the individual who is in the process of or has already departed and brings energetic closure. The intention of the Despacho is to create a rainbow bridge between the worlds, to ease the process of crossing over.

Are you intrigued by the possibility of communicating with people who have passed on?

Do you want to break free from your fear of death and limited ideas of the afterlife?

Whether you yearn for contact with departed loved ones, seek forgiveness or closure or hunger to journey deeper into the secrets of the Universe, I will show you that you have the capability to make natural and easy contact with the other side.

How? Through our dreams and through the practice of shamanic journeying.

In our dreams and shamanic journeys, the veils between worlds disappear. We travel beyond body and the rules of physical reality and journey into other dimensions, including realms where departed Souls reside.

These journeys are not only fascinating, but they can also transform our relationship with life, free us from the fear of death and allow us to build an expanded skillset for accessing guidance and healing from the other side to better our lives on this side.

While this ability may sound far out, it really shouldn’t.

Given that an abundance of studies reveal that we do survive death, the question becomes, “How do we engage these other worlds in a direct, experiential way?” Do we need to wait until our own death to do so?

The exciting news is no, we can establish a direct connection with the other side right now. However, the deep truth of this statement cannot be explained, it can only be experienced.

Shamans are the original scientists of the Afterlife, the once and future masters of this field. They have experiential knowledge of what lies beyond the gates of death and can return intentionally through those gates to communicate with Spirits, guide and retrieve Souls and further their understanding of the geography of non-ordinary reality.

The truth is you have these same capabilities yourself – and they are operating every night.

We naturally communicate with the departed in our dreams, which is for many dreamers direct and life-changing evidence of the reality of the Soul and its survival of physical death.

The views expressed in this course about the Afterlife are my own – as with anything, take what speaks to you and discard the rest. You might have your own views of the Afterlife and that is OK – once we cross over each one of us perceives the Afterlife according to what we need at that particular time.
