The Complete Cord Course

Working with Cords Through Energy Work and Shamanic Healing

The Complete Cord Course

Learn simple and clear ways to discover and work with energetic cords. Cords are our energetic attachments to people whom we have interacted with. We need cords to feel connected, form emotional bonds, and to develop empathy for our fellow human beings. But we are likely walking around with hundreds if not thousands of cords to the people that we have met throughout our lifetimes. Many of these cords from past relationships can simply be cleared. Others to current or more complex relationships may need more intermediate tools to be worked with. We can also work with cords that are a natural part of our energetic blueprint and that connect us to our greater spiritual nature. Learn how to discover and work with cords to past lives, ancestors, and your future. Gain deep spiritual insight from cords that connect us to our destiny, astral, etheric, and mental "bodies," and to the cosmos itself. Each section will teach you how to find cording mechanisms, what they are for, and how to utilize them to heal or to gain spiritual insight.

The Shamanic Workbook I

Cleansing, Discernment, and Ancestral Practices

The Shamanic Workbook I

This workbook is intended for the serious shamanic and spiritual studies student who is ready to gain the necessary knowledge and tools to become a competent spiritual worker in the modern world. The book has arisen out of three online courses that Mary Shutan has taught over the years: An Eight-Week Course in Spiritual Herbalism focused on Clearing and Cleansing Practices, a Five-Week Discernment Course, and a Four Week Ancestral Course. The Clearing and Cleansing Course focused on Spiritual Herbalism is the first serious foundational step that any spiritual student should take. It teaches energetic hygiene including spiritual bathing, house clearing, and protection practices. Discernment is not taught to the depth that is necessary in the modern world, and should be the foundation of any spiritual practice. Knowing what we are interacting with is the essential first step in knowing how to properly work with it. Our Ancestors should be the first spirits we engage with. They are deeply concerned with daily matters as well as our general well-being, and offer protection and guidance that serves the spiritual practitioner well. Learn how to work with your Ancestors, how to build an Ancestral altar, as well as about "original," or more than human ancestors. All of Shutan's courses and books are focused on depth teachings, embodiment, as well as balance. A Spiritual Worker is someone who is grounded in this reality, and can commune with the natural world as well as the Other with compassion and clarity. Recognizing how our modern way of living may be preventing us from fully accessing the spiritual layers of reality is essential if we are looking to receive gnosis and work in concert with the spiritual realms.

Managing Psychic Abilities

A Real World Guide for the Highly Sensitive Person

Managing Psychic Abilities

Approximately 20% of the population is sensitive or in some way psychic. Being sensitive or psychic can allow you to understand the world in a way that most people can’t, and to see beyond what others are able to. But for many of you sensitivities are a burden, causing overwhelm or even physical ailments. Most information about psychic abilities on the market is aspirational, meaning that all of the books out there focused on “opening your third eye” or “becoming psychic” are not meant for the highly sensitive person. You don’t want to become more sensitive, you may in fact be holding on for dear life because you are overwhelmed, panicked, have issues with sleep, body pain, headaches, digestive issues, and constantly shifting emotions. Or you might be mildly sensitive, but still need skills to manage going to work, or want to know more about how to become more functional while still being sensitive in this world. Learn how psychic abilities and sensitivities develop, where you are on the spectrum of these abilities and sensitivities, and most importantly, the basic and intermediate skills and techniques needed to be healthier, more functional, and to feel in control of your sensitivities and psychic abilities, so that you can live in the world more joyfully again.

We are a whole body, a consciousness, and a spiritual being. As a holistic, interconnected being, our emotions, beliefs, physical pain, past traumas, and even imbalances created through spiritual issues are held within our physical form. By accessing them through the physical body with the body deva--the spiritual consciousness of our human body--we can heal the continuum of mind, body, and spirit. Understanding this is the true key to healing. In this step-by-step guide to understanding and working with the body deva, the consciousness of your body, Mary Mueller Shutan explains how our bodies hold the traumatic energies, emotions, physical issues, and restricting beliefs that cause us pain and feelings of disconnection. She details how to make contact and dialogue with your body deva to heal a variety of issues, from physical pains to ancestral and past life patterns to limiting ideas about what we can accomplish in this world. By working with the body deva, she shows how we can discover the reasons why our pain, beliefs, or imbalances developed and resolve them to heal mind, body, and spirit, every layer of our being. She explores how to work with the archetypes, labels, limiting beliefs, and myths that underlie our unique history and reasons for being. Shutan also examines how to work with the body deva to heal spiritual patterns through the physical body, including techniques of ancestral healing, past life healing, and karmic resolution. By learning to dialogue with the body deva, you can understand who you are on the deepest levels. You can learn why your pain and imbalances came to be and what lies unhealed within you. You can evolve beyond the limitations and restrictions in your body and your life and evolve into greater health, connection, joy, and consciousness.

Working with Kundalini

An Experiential Guide to the Process of Awakening

Working with Kundalini

A guide to moving gracefully through the 3-phase process of Kundalini awakening • Explains the three phases of Kundalini awakening, the effects of pre-Kundalini and neuro-Kundalini, and Kundalini’s connection to the chakras and the spiritual heart • Describes the physical, emotional, and spiritual effects of Kundalini energy, including the rerouting of digestive fire, which can lead to food allergies and sensitivities • Explores supportive dietary and alternative health modalities, including fasting, paleo, keto, vegetarian, and mono diets, herbal allies, and meditation Kundalini awakenings can have profound physical, emotional, and mental effects, making it difficult to cope with everyday life, yet these powerful awakenings can also allow you to release past trauma, see past the illusions of the false self, and awaken your spiritual heart, enabling you to recognize the divine self. In this step-by-step guide to the 3-phase process of Kundalini awakening, Mary Shutan delivers practical information on how to deal with such a spiritual emergence in our modern world. Starting with her own story, she describes the nature of Kundalini energy, the reasons for the energy rising, and the connection to the chakra system. Debunking the myths associated with Kundalini awakening, she explains how the first phase of Kundalini rising involves a surging up of fire--the fire of purification. It releases the past, liberates you from past bondages and beliefs, and disrupts the neuro-endocrine systems of the body. The second phase involves expansive experiences of ecstasy, peace, bliss, and emptiness states as the upper chakras open, greater perspective on life comes in, and you connect with cosmic consciousness. The third phase, the opening of the spiritual heart, is a shift from upward-flowing energy to a downward flow of grace into the heart center, leading to compassion, re-anchoring in the world, and the embodiment of light. Exploring how Kundalini profoundly rewires the physical body and the mind, the author describes the rerouting of digestive fire during the rising of Kundalini energy. She explores the relationship between Kundalini and food allergies and sensitivities as well as supportive dietary and alternative health modalities, including fasting; paleo, keto, vegetarian, vegan, and mono diets; herbal allies; and mineral supplements. She also explores sexual practices that may help or hinder the process and meditation techniques to facilitate Kundalini awakening during each phase. Providing detailed guidance for each phase of Kundalini awakening, this experiential guide supports you as you transform not only emotionally and spiritually but also physically and socially into your divine self.
