Walk-ins, Soul Family, and Soul Missions

Dolphin Pod - Photographer Unknown
I was having a conversation with my friend, Teresa, who is both gifted and knowledgeable.  I was picking her brain a bit about the topic of walk-ins.  I wanted to know how a walk-in finds their people, their soul family.  I wanted to know how we could better help a walk-in remember who they really are and thus reach the people they were meant to reach to carry out the soul mission that they came here to complete.  Her information was so beautiful that I asked her if I could use it for a blog and use her name.  I was pleased that she agreed.

My soul sister was the first to find me.  She is not a walk-in.  Next, one of my soul brothers somehow found me online and he is a walk-in.  A series of connections led him to contacting me and we both realized the truth about our connection fairly quickly.  He is still in the process of remembering in bits and pieces.

Teresa's wonderful information:

You can read Teresa's blog and contact her here:
If you want to follow her on Facebook, you can "like" her page here:

In an effort to not make the information hard to read, I only included Teresa's side of the dialogue.  It was just too good not to want to save it all in one place.

"Walk-ins have specific purposes."

Well the tough thing is that whether you have a soul mate energy in one person or another and they are a walk-in, typically the walk in has a specific purpose for the exchange and coming in."

To be granted special permissions like walking in, there would have to be pretty big reasons and they would be weighed and considered."

Walk-in's usually involve a process so as not to shock the body/brain/systems"

Some will even cohabitate as they match the frequencies of the body.  You don't have to be ill to have a walk in.  The process as to the integration of the walk in with the mind/body of the vessel varies."

"When it comes to what you can do to help facilitate the process really depends.  So much of it relies on the walk-ins level and experience with energy integration and reintegration.  In addition to any energy conflicts or soul conflicts of the soul leaving, etc."

"It very well could have been pre-planned. Doesn't mean it would be any easier for the transition.  So much of it relies on the walk-ins experience.  It's a much more complex process than a birthing. Which is one reason we go through a birthing process to begin with."

"When it comes to walk ins, again so much of it is reliant on their experience and knowledge.  So if you all are advanced energy healers then collectively you could tune in to his energy signature and help anchor him down into his vessel."

"Outside of what I mentioned when it comes to you all helping to anchor his energy signature and coding into his vessel on this plane, it's totally going to rely on him the rest of the way."

" (walking in) It's not an easy thing. Again, majority lies on the walk-ins shoulders. We can help encourage or nurture the signature to root on this level. Most of the time walk-ins have such a strong purpose and level of knowledge they typically can integrate in a number of months or even a year."

"They'll have a period of sifting through the thoughts, memories, etc. if they didn't cohabitate initially or work with the original soul."

"Remember time is simply an illusion.  There can be a lot of reason for a wait.  In the meantime work with the walk-ins that have awakened.  The more you raise your vibrations and express your authentic selves it will also nurture and call to him.  It's easy for us to want to rush the process but only he would know what he has to sort through with the integration."

"again... call out your energies collectively with your own vibrations and also put the call out there with his signature. Create the harmony of the blend."

Like if you're all part of the same soul group as most soul mates are there is a frequency, a collective hum that is the signature of your pod.  Other groups have their own signature like if you were to think of a phone one else has the same exact phone number."

"That number is the direct number to your office or pod. Really the numbers are like representatives of musical notes.  The music harmony as I can best describe it is made of your energies combined. Layered on top of the original melody or signature."

"(you call out with) Intention.  You have to first connect with it yourselves within."

"Recognize it and anchor it in, which it's already anchored, but outline it and intensify it's energy.  The more energy and intention is like turning the volume up.  Others can hear it.  But unless someone feels that song as home, they won't really care.  But his energy being part of that group and signature will be drawn to it and it will intensify the song within and help add to the melody."

"You know how you can hear a song and it literally moves through every fiber of your being and can give you goosebumps?"

"That's what your intention is. You're all like an individual speaker playing the foundation melody of your groups signature. Coding... Each "speaker" has their own melody layered on top of the foundation melody. When two "Speakers" meet and connect and turn on... then you start to create the harmony."

I guess my pod and I need to put out a call to find the others so they can find us and help us on our soul mission.  While I am not entirely sure what the group mission is yet, I do know that my personal mission is to be an energy healer.  Jeannie Barnes and others have all told me the same thing....that I am meant to be an energy healer.  Jeannie told me that I will come to healing gradually and naturally within the next couple years.

There are differences in types of walk-ins.  Sometimes it is a soul braid where the soul that walks in kind of braids with the existing soul.  A full soul exchange is where the original soul steps out and the new one walks in and takes over.  Sometimes a soul only walks in for a short time to complete a specific task.  You can do a search on these terms to find our more about both.  THIS is my previous blog post about this subject.

Here are some sites I found interesting and helpful:

Red Hot Chili Peppers Encounters and More On Dreams

Photo By Mark Seliger - 1992
Years ago I dated someone briefly who is friends with the band, Red Hot Chili Peppers.  I had moved to Portland, Oregon for the first time and didn't really know anyone here.  When he called and later visited, he was a familiar face that I welcomed.  One particular weekend he was supposed to be house sitting for Flea and he came to visit me.  At that point I kind of knew that I didn't really want to see him anymore and tried to find all kinds of ways to discourage him from coming up.  But he insisted and flew up anyway.  That was the last weekend I ever talked to him.

Fast forward to my phone bill arriving and there was this California number that kept showing up on my bill and I knew it wasn't my best friend's number.  I suspected it was my roommate's calls, but I wasn't sure.  When I asked her, she said it wasn't anyone she knew.  I wasn't convinced and decided to call the number to find out who was on the other end.  I got an answering machine with the cutest message ever.  I think it was both Flea and his little daughter, Clara, on the message which let me know immediately who had made the calls to this number.  I was so tickled by the cute message that I called the number back to let my roommate hear it.  She suddenly gets this freaked out look on her face and hands me the phone as though it were a hot potato. lol  Flea had answered the phone that time and I was like, "Hi, this number showed up on my phone bill and I just wanted to find out who had made the call by finding out whose number this was."  I went on to reveal that I was in Portland, Oregon and Flea was hilarious.  He completely lied and said he had never been to Portland, Oregon.  He was in the movie My Own Private Idaho which was filmed in Portland, so I knew that was a bold faced lie.  I said to him, "I'm not saying YOU were ever here.  I am saying someone you know was here and was at my house and called your number and I am trying to find the appropriate person to charge for the calls."  I then said, "Okay, let me just ask you this.  Do you know blah blah blah?"  And he said he did.  I said, "Okay, thanks!  Have a good day!" and hung up.  My roommate and I laughed about it.

I have never dreamed about RHCP before, but night before last I had a dream that involved them.  I would actually say it was closer to a nightmare because when I woke from it, my heart racing and I was relieved to be awake and not in the crazy ass dream.  I will spare you the twisted details of the other parts and only share the bit that relates to RHCP:

So we are still in this apartment only now there is this big room attached that you take stairs down to get to. As is turns out, they hold events there and it looked like they were getting ready to hold an event. I see a little girl a little older than Inara running around and think she must be with the people that are part of the event. Inara, of course, makes a B-line for the girl and they start playing together. As it turns out, the event that is happening is the Red Hot Chili Peppers are doing a Q and A panel/meet and greet sort of thing. I see flea talking to his daughter who was playing with my daughter and I think, that is curious, he must have had a second daughter much later because I know Clara must be an adult by now. I think briefly that I hope blah blah blah doesn't turn up there. The crappy part was in order to get to this event, a lot of people were going through our apartment. There was our front door and then our back door was attached to this large room where the event was being held. I didn't like all these people traipsing through and then some were lingering IN our apartment. At one point I saw high school aged kids dressed in costumes of fairytale characters. They were beautiful and elaborate costumes and I asked why they were dressed that way and one person said that they were going to a fairytale themed costume party. I saw more of them laughing and walking down through a shallow creek. And when the event ended, it got worse with people leaving through our place. I got really angry and physically showed people out the front door and locked it and then I tried locking the back door but people were pissed that they would have to go around and they actually tried to break the door open. I had a confrontation with one chick and basically threw her down the stairs. I closed a secondary door and bolted it shut and then I see a motorcycle rider driving and come up to obstacles my mom, I think, put in the road to keep them from passing through and he spins horribly out of control. He gets up but his arm is mangled and then because of his bike in the road more accidents occur and he gets hit by an oncoming car. Another motorcycle rider crashes and spills his bike. Chaos was ensuing and I think I mentioned to mom that they were going to be pissed about the obstacles she put in the road. And then I open a door and I think I am still in my apartment but it's not. And there were all these people. And I was still trying to keep people out of my apartment and cursing at people and apparently one of the people I said something to was like the owner of the building and she says to me, "oh you are really going to regret saying that to me." and that was when I looked around the room and was like, this isn't my apartment, and thought, what is this place? It was beautiful. It looked expensive with stained glass and chandeliers and it seemed like there were crystals lining the walls. It seemed to be some kind of central operations place.

I did a search online to see if Flea really does have a second daughter who was close to Inara's age and he DOES!!! Her name is Sunny and she was born in October 2005.  Inara was born in June 2008. And OMG the face I saw was actually Sunny's face!!! I am floored. So strange.

I know what the bits about all the people was pushing people away and putting obstacles in the path to prevent people from being in my personal space. lol  But the part where I actually see Flea's real daughter who I knew nothing about until after searching online is very perplexing.  I have no idea what it means or why I would dream about RHCP or Flea's young daughter.  I like the music of RHCP and saw them live back in the day before they were famous, but I am not the sort of person to know every single little detail about a band's members.  I find it is far better to know less personal details about a band if you want to continue to appreciate their music. lol  I guess I will just have to wait and see if it becomes clear why I dreamed about Flea and Sunny.

Dreams, Oracles, Astral Projection, Lucid Dreaming

Naoto Hattori - Genetic Creator
I have always had lots of dreams.  The truth is, many of my early dreams I considered nightmares.  It got to the point where I just didn't want to sleep anymore because of where I would end up in my sleep.  Back then I had no idea what sleep paralysis was and it scared the shit out of me.  I didn't know what lucid dreaming was either.  Had I had someone to explain what some of this stuff was, perhaps I wouldn't have fought it and thought it so awful.  Let's get a few definitions out of the way for those who might come here and say, "Well what is lucid dreaming?  What is astral projection?  What is sleep paralysis?"

Sleep Paralysis : a complete temporary paralysis occurring in connection with sleep and especially upon waking

Lucid Dreaming
: a dream state in which one is conscious enough to recognize that one is in the dream state and which stays in one's memory

Astral Projection
: the act of separating the astral body (spirit or consciousness) from the physical body and its journey into the universe

:  a person (as a priestess of ancient Greece) through whom a deity is believed to speak
b :  a shrine in which a deity reveals hidden knowledge or the divine purpose through such a person
c :  an answer or decision given by an oracle
a :  a person giving wise or authoritative decisions or opinions
b :  an authoritative or wise expression or answer

I really became addicted to coffee back in my late teens when I was trying to sleep as little as possible because I didn't want to dream.  I feared sleep.  I stayed awake as much as possible.  I would wake inside of a dream.  I could hear everything that was happening in the room but I could do nothing to wake my body.  I would scream inside my head, "WAKE UP!!!" and yet I couldn't wake no matter how hard I tried.  At times people would say they heard me whimpering in my sleep and I told them if they hear that in the future to please wake me up because chances are good I am trying to wake up but can't.  Back then I was still very brainwashed in my rigid christian beliefs, so I actually believed that whatever was happening to me was sinister and evil.  Again, I wish I had someone to help me understand so that I could take advantage of that gift I was given instead of being afraid of it and trying to run from it.

Fast forward to now, I understand so much more.  I understand what lucid dreaming is and have actually tried to deliberately induce astral projection and lucid dreaming.  It doesn't come easily to me now like it used to when I was younger and trying to fight it.

Many nights I have lots of dreams.  A fourth of the time, they are just disjointed musings of my subconscious mind.  But the other three-fourths of the time they are VERY meaningful.  Those dreams I have tried to record in a journal.  Some of the meaningful dreams are prophetic.  Some of them are warnings like the time I dreamed of my younger brother rolling his car and dying.  I told him of my concerns for his well being.  His girlfriend at the time had a similar dream and also warned him.  I begged him to wear his seat belt at least for the next week as normally he refused to wear one.  Later that week he rolled his car and his life was spared because he took our warnings seriously and wore a seat belt.  Some of my other dreams tell me about my own future and are guidance. actually many times, I have visitations from spirits in my dreams giving me messages or just having a lovely interaction with me.  Last night was filled with dreams and messages and a lovely visitation from a certain being I have been missing dearly.  This time he appeared as a beautiful Asian man with long hair.  Thanks, Kenji, for that visual in your old photo. lol  It definitely wasn't you though because he had a different face and was a musician.  I could smell his hair and commented on how it smelled nice.  I could feel his touch and his lips on mine.  When you touch and smell or taste in dreams, it is a pretty good indicator that it is no ordinary dream...that you are, in fact, in the astral having a very real experience outside of the body.

You see, what many people don't understand is that when we sleep, the majority of us leave our bodies and go off to play.  What you think is "just a dream" could be an actual experience.  Sometimes those experiences are created to guide us.  Sometimes they are created just because we miss someone and we have sought each other out to spend time with each other while in the astral.  Some people do incredible work while their body sleeps.  Apparently I have visited other people's dreams but often have no memory of it.  Some people only hover just above their bodies and others take off on wonderful adventures.  I have managed to astral project on purpose, but I can't seem to maintain it for very long.  It feels like seconds.  I can get to that familiar vibratory state and then feel the lift of my spirit out of my body, but often my human thinking gets in the way and I get sucked back into my body and wake.

So next time you have a dream, ask yourself what meaning it has to you and your life.  Ask yourself if it was really "just a dream".  Chances are pretty good that it has significant meaning to you and huge clues and advice for your life.  Maybe consider starting a dream journal and looking back now and then to understand what the "dreams" might be trying to show you.  And if you come across someone who loves you and feels real...hug them close and enjoy the moment.

Confessions of a Lone Wolf and Social Introvert

"Social Introvert"  kind of seems like an oxymoron, but it describes me perfectly.  It makes sense given my Tropical astrological leanings.  I have a Libra Sun (social butterflies) and Cancer Rising (Introversion tendencies).  I am a walking contradiction and apparently I set it up that way before I came into this physical incarnation.  People who meet me and talk to me would assume that I am always really outgoing and socially inclined.  While I can function (sometimes) in social settings, what most people don't realize is many social settings makes me very uncomfortable.  Social media is an introvert's paradise.  We can be as social as we want to be without all of those bodies in our personal space. 

I LOVE people.  Really, I do.  And I HATE people. lol  I love to get to know people and hear about their personal stories of their lives....but out in the physical world, I like to keep my distance.  At parties, I am that person that picks a dark corner to watch everyone and cringe if someone tries to engage me in meaningless chitchat.  I'm great in one-on-one, in-person conversations.  I could probably even hang with a small group of good friends comfortably.  I feel extreme anxiety out at big concerts and any setting where people are TOO CLOSE to me.  It makes me want to crawl out of my skin.  My best friend begged me to go to Lollapalooza with her one year for her birthday.  The idea of this was SO distasteful to me.  Smashing Pumpkins and L7 were performing that year.  She had to beg me to go and I finally caved.  I was still a smoker then and used my cigarette as a means of keeping people at a distance and burning people who got in my personal space and tried to dance on top of me.  lol 

I am a conflicted being.  As a small child I wanted friends desperately and yet I always seemed to be the "outcast".  Because I liked to imagine I lived in a musical, I remember vividly singing little sad songs about how lonely I felt at recess on the playground.  And the friends I did have, I liked okay, but was often secretly relieved when I could play on my own after they went home.

I have never completely understood people who have a desire to have people around them 24/7 either.  I like time alone and if I don't get enough of it I get really grumpy and start lashing out.  I dated a guy briefly who I would spend physical time with and then he would leave, get home and call me.  I would say, "Why are you calling me?  You just left my house!"  He was one of those people who like people around all the time.  He couldn't understand how anxious and suffocated it made me feel to have him around so much.  I ended up finally telling him I couldn't see him anymore.  Our needs were so different and the more he tried to hold me close, the more repulsed I was by his very presence.  That ended with him telling me I was cold and unfeeling and me laughing while he did so, which pretty much just reinforced what he believed.  It isn't that I am cold and unfeeling.  I feel a lot, but we all express our needs and feelings in different ways.

I understand now that part of my aversion to large crowds of people has to do with being an empath.  I pick up the emotions and feelings of those around me even if I am not consciously aware of it and it is equivalent to over-stimulation for a toddler.  I become overwhelmed and have inner meltdowns and feeling the need to flee whatever over crowded scene I am in.  I know other empaths experience similar feelings in crowds.  The other part of my aversion is that I am very independent by nature.  I like my own company.  I like time alone with my thoughts.  I like time to ponder all the big questions of life.  I like time alone to write all that is at the core of my being.

I had really wild dreams a couple nights in a row.  This one seemed almost like it was from a future incarnation.  I can't completely explain what it is I felt but I remember waking up and saying that "The solar poles must be shifting because I am having some really vivid weird ass dreams...almost like a tv signal is being beamed into my head."  When I went online, I discovered I was correct.  The sun's poles had, indeed, flipped.  Here is that dream:

December 29, 2013 The dream was about two kids about 17-18years old. The boy was found living in a car with his chimpanzee companion. They took the chimp away because the chimp had become senile in his old age. The boy was upset because he had been with him his whole life and wanted to care for the chimp even though he was senile. He wasn't dangerous and wasn't violent.  Anyway, the boy was sent off to a reform school. The other character was a girl. She was a hard core gamer. She had 4 of her favorite games tattooed on her right arm and at times I saw through her eyes. The boy was sullen and withdrawn. At the school the kids were mean. The girl was tough and nothing phased her. She looked at him as a challenge and wanted to see if he would let her in, so she started talking to him. He easily attached to her because she was kind to him. The girl had been found living alone and of course gaming when they found her and they threw her into the reform school. She got in trouble a lot there because she wasn't going to live by any rules. Anyway, the two hit it off and right away the boy is talking marriage. The girl thinks it is cute that he is so taken with her and goes with it and they have a relationship but she knows that she is young and there was no way in hell she was going to spend her whole life with just one person. She already was thinking ahead to her life without him even though she knew it would crush him.
I could really see myself in the girl character....glaringly so. lol 

Enter the internet age.  Being able to socialize online has allowed me the opportunity to be a social butterfly without the anxiety of large physical social settings.  I engage in multiple conversations with people regularly.  Writing is easy and second nature for me, so composing my thoughts in written form is not a hardship.  It isn't really surprising that many of the people I have gravitated toward are also writers who feel more comfortable being social online than in person.  We crave in-person interactions, just not crowds of people settings.  It is a shame so many of my "online friends" are scattered all over the U.S. and other countries.

Kombucha and Dandelion Root Tea, I bet you didn't anticipate this would turn into a cooking blog too, huh? hahahaha  Well, even though I truly believe a healthy diet is very much a part of spiritual practice, I promise not to do many of these.   I felt it was the best way to show Kate Sitka that I already am a weirdo that digs up my dandelions to consume.  I make a point to ask Inara to blow the dandelion puffs as much as possible to grow a new harvest for the following year. lol
While I am no longer making my own kombucha right now, I would like to start again only try using a white tea that has less caffeine. 

Here are a series of pictures of the first komucha scoby I grew from a bottle of store bought kombucha.

Day 1
Day 4
Day 4.5
Day 5.5
Day 10

Left jar is finished kombucha and scoby.  The middle and right are a fresh batch I started.

Cultures For Health is where I found a good video to instruct me on how to make my own kombucha and scoby.

Now here is my dandelion root tea project.  Let me just say, I LOVE this type of tea and it is incredibly good for you.  Some of the benefits I have copy/pasted are listed here at this MindBodyGreen:
  1. It improves digestion and aids weight loss.
  2. It eases congestion of the liver.
  3. It helps to purify the bladder and kidneys.
  4. It reduces the risk of urinary tract infections.
  5. It contains calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, potassium, vitamins B and C.
  6. It helps to purify the blood, regulate blood sugar and improves blood circulation.
  7. It helps to ease bloating and aching joints.
  8. It helps to cure skin conditions.

If you have a lawn that chemical fertilizers are not used on and you have abundant dandelions, you can go this this SITE to learn how to make your own dandelion root tea.

Love As The Key

Love As The Key

Another day is gone
Oh how time goes by so fast
I'm just one person
In this world small yet vast
So many seeking 
Searching for riches and treasure
So many are blinded
By the glimmer of material pleasure
Is it so easily forgotten
Where your heart's desire should be?
The real riches of life
Are obtained with love as the key

Eternal Love

Eternal Love

The soft white snow falls
Like a blanket on the land
And it quickly melts away
When it floats into a hand

As I look out the picture window
I give a long deep sigh
Thoughts roll wildly through my mind
And silently I wonder why

Feelings that I can't explain
Surge through my entire soul
My essence is an abstract park
Where confusion takes a stroll

In a city where I've never been
A warm familiar face I see
His smile is bright and cheerful
I know that smile is for me

If only he could always 
Be there to brighten my day
Yet I know I'll have to go
Although I wish I could stay

A dream I've had for years
Is rooted deeply within
They say to get to the fruit
You have to go out on a limb

So that's what I am doing now
On a fine line, I'm taking a chance
I'm looking towards a blue sky
I hope he will join in my dance.

Author's Notes:
  I have no recollection of writing this poem or who I could have been writing about.  lol  I guess he was pretty memorable.  Hahaha  Maybe I was channeling my future self for an event that has yet to take place.  That is my theory and I am sticking to it.
