I'm a Lifedream Illuminator. I was born with a birthmark of a frog on my chest, on the right side (the ‘male’ side), a symbol of what I’m to ‘do’ in this life. Frog is one of the medicines a shaman will call in to help clear energies that are no longer serving. I suppose that means that I was born into my mission. I illustrate and illuminate what’s in people’s shadows and make it easy for them to release things they no longer need, so that they can access the gifts hidden there and move forward into a realization of their true, expansive, empowered selves. I have an especial talent for bringing gentle healing and fun into what people usually expect to be a scary or otherwise difficult ordeal. I’m guided to provide healing and information for righting our Medicines on an individual, global, Universal and Überversal level, using whatever gifts Great Spirit graces me with; Love, most of all. blackfeathermedicine(at)

the ride’s not fun any more

‘second chances’
This piece (still a work in progress) portrays an unintegrated experience for the subject, one that I can well imagine continually repeats in this man’s later life, such that it would seem to him that every time he wants to do something he’s ‘adrenaline-level’ excited about, he feels he has a female figure in his life holding him back, ‘controlling him’, even.
Not to make light of it, but it’s kind of ironic that there’s a repeating /’round and round’ issue here, because I believe this original event is related to an amusement park ride (or something very much like); one with an aquatic theme, to be more specific. His mom is portrayed as the cow at top, suggesting that to all intents, purposes and appearances, she had a very nurturing, maternal nature. The fact that her left arm was in a sling (not a solid cast, I don’t believe) helps to identify her, and has something to do with how this issue played out.
By revisiting this story with the awareness a new perspective can facilitate, his core beliefs can shift, such that he can manifest something ‘other’. His life will no longer have to frustratingly echo this previous event. He’ll be able to enjoy a profoundly more rewarding dynamic with his significant others, and actually enjoy and engage in what excites him, rather than feeling sabotaged, sick /ill, or hampered by ‘unfair’ circumstances.
If this resonates, email me, and I’ll help you work through it (in a way that’s ‘accessible’, even enjoyable). There’s much more that can be resolved here. You have a unique, and valuable gift to bring forward. Don’t allow this aspect of your past to continue to limit you.
Nothing can bring us lasting happiness. We have it already, within us. The question, then, is “What have I been believing /practicing that’s disturbing that?”

Big Medicine Love to You

Are you lost in ‘why’? …as in, why am I ‘here’, why did that happen to me… why is [fill in the blank] not happening …or maybe the proverbial, what the f(ire tr)uck did I do to deserve this?

Familiar? Reckoned so. Here’s some help with that… Continue reading ‘Why?’

Who’s up for a poke at the nuts?

So you ‘should’ leave your comfort zone, right? Sure, you’ve heard it’s a good thing to do, but contemplating it puts knots in your stomach, nightmares in your head, and ultimately, cement shoes where your feet used to be.

I’m pretty sure I can help with that… Continue reading Who’s up for a poke at the nuts?

There Are Two Kinds of People…

two-kinds-of-people_eyesThere are two kinds of people in the world. Actually, a better way to put it would be to say, ‘there are two ways of being in the world’: loving, or being afraid to love. Interestingly, both of them arise out of the same theme: whether you feel your needs will be met or not… Continue reading There Are Two Kinds of People…

The Mystery of Change

ultimatelyWhy we’re fated – or seemingly ‘destined’ – to have some experiences in life is a mystery. Is it karma? …a benevolent (or not-so-benevolent) Being having a laugh? Whether it’s an unexpected death, a lottery win, or an imposed career change, all can seem to come from beyond our control.

Thanks for Nothing!

bastard ego

The ego’s a manipulator, insidious.

No surprise there, I imagine.

Case in point: it comes along after the proverbial fact to give us shit for having [maybe] missed an opportunity, when it’s actually its perspective we’d been seeing things from in the first place (thus causing us to not see – or to ‘shy away from’ – said opportunity)!

It hides all your best gifts on the other side of your fears [and who’s inclined to even think to look there, right?].

Your Love Prescription

this way to loveFrustrated with your love life?

In a love-slump?

Do you imagine you might be sabotaging your loving relationships?

Do you feel unworthy of true love?

Maybe you feel that you have to ‘settle’, always choose the wrong partner or love interest …?

Ultimately, do you want a change, a way to fix your love life (or lack of one)?!

What you ‘HAVE’ to do (simply put)…

staircase to Light(Love being a given,) what might most people assume as being the answer to that?

…[apparently, it’s] forgiveness.

I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with forgiveness; after all, it does remove barriers/ illusions and wanton allusions, but where concern regarding forgiveness can be skewed is when one attaches a hope or expectation to it, a (conscious or unconscious) desire that you’ll be conferred with some manner of ‘cosmic prosperity’ as a result, that’ll it’ll be bestowed upon you by some benevolent being outside of yourself as a reward (for good and proper, quantifiably admirable behaviour).

What do you really ‘have’ to do?

Unfinished Business: disclosure re dis-closure

disclosureBut, but, but… !!?”

What to do when you’re not able to get closure, to make amends, when you can’t accept or get past what you feel has been left unsaid, undone or unresolved? How can you ever be at peace? (How can the other?) How do you move forward, when closing the door on the past doesn’t seem possible?

Your Work in ‘Progress’

better than loveYour world is a work in progress, as you are.

It can be especially difficult to practice self-love and self-esteem, when distracted by the discord one might see in what appears to be happening around them (or when visited by the feeling that things seem to be moving – ‘progressing’? – mind-numbingly slowly).
