Transcending Addictions
 
“Not everything that is faced can be changed, yet nothing can be changed until it is faced.” ~ James Baldwin
Life is meant to be filled with challenges, which are simply opportunities in disguise. This is the cosmic set up which causes everyone to evolve and grow. The real battles you are here to fight are not outside your body with another person, organization or country. This is old school, and how the Neanderthal mind thinks. The evolved being is a deeply responsible and sensitive creature, who knows the real war is fought and won within them, wherever their own personal inner conflict resides. Once you find this true sustainable inner peace that remains regardless of the situation or circumstances you're given, then you've found something that will allow you to truly master this world.
 
We are all addicted to something. Every single person on this planet is facing some form of addiction on some level. You may be addicted to a lifestyle, money, a person, a feeling like guilt or neediness, and a memory from your past, a victim story, and a repetitive thinking pattern, the high from caffeine, alcohol, sex, cigarettes, food or perhaps depressing thoughts about your life. Whatever you do, don't judge or criticize yourself for whatever you're addicted to. There are a zillion things that the mind can easily get hooked by, yet the real question is, "Are you willing to transcend it?"
What makes someone an addict verses a user (or abuser) depends on their level of avoidance to pain and their attachment to pleasure. An addict won't take a few focused minutes to dive into and through the hard stuck feelings they have inside. They'll find a happy distraction that lets them avoid their feelings. The TV, alcohol, pot or tobacco creates an entertaining escape which provides a temporary sense of relief. The addiction is then slowly formed from the habitual escape route of doing what does not allow you not to face those unhappy feelings which you want to ignore, fix or bury deep inside. The addict has found a comfortable velvet rut in the world of avoidance, and has accepted the idea that their habit is simply who they are. The addict stops reinventing themselves, and lives in a dead fixed ego paradigm that is not open to a field of infinite possibilities.

CHILLICOTHIE ROMANI WARRIOR AND MEN'S SPIRITUALITY RETREAT

ONGOING for groups and individuals

Based upon the Teachings of the Chillicothie Romani Traditional Values.

 The Pagan male today finds himself in a confusing position. In response to the highly patriarchal nature of the mainstream monotheistic faiths, the Pagan community as a whole tends toward a matriarchal, feminine-oriented system. In this system, the male aspects of Divinity are often greatly if not completely eclipsed by the female aspects. The “Great Mother Goddess” is often honored to the exclusion of the God, who is relegated to the status of her “Consort” when He is mentioned at all.                                                                     

 WE believe that even as a completely patriarchal system is unbalanced, so too is a completely matriarchal system - a positive, dynamic balance between the two is needed, not an aggrandizement of one gender over the other. Both genders have their own strengths and weaknesses, and each has much to teach the other. To this end, we are committed to exploring the men's mysteries, the spiritual aspects of what it is to be male. We do have an unashamedly men's group – for there are many women's mysteries groups in existence, and we consider ourselves neither unbalanced nor chauvinistic for wishing to explore the spiritual aspects of our own gender and be the Lord we were created to be.

Soul Retrieval and Reconnecting to Your Souls Blueprint

When I had my first Soul Retrieval or Soul Return performed, it was a very traumatic experience. All of my missing soul pieces, or soul fragments, were returned at one time, with no healing of the pieces, leaving me unable to get out of bed for a month this was part of my training experience my angels had on the plate for me so others wouldn't have this symptom. 

In the Shamanic method of Soul Retrieval, or Soul Return, as taught to me in my shamanic mentorship with my Traditional Romani Familia, the Shaman journeys to the other world and returns one missing soul piece in a session. This takes many sessions to return all missing soul pieces. If you have a lot of lost soul fragments, you may not be able to return all of them in your lifetime.

My method of returning the soul pieces is very easy and gentle. I use the assistance of your Angels, Guides and Master Healers to help in returning and healing the soul pieces. After the pieces are returned, I heal the returned soul fragments so that they will not leave again.

It usually takes 3 thirty minute sessions to complete the Soul Retrieval. Sometimes it may take more sessions, but if it takes more I refuse to charge extra and stay committed to you and your work to do.

I have recently discovered that there are some people who can experience the same or more profound effects in 1 - 60 minute Session.

In this Session, I return all missing Soul Pieces from all life times. We then heal the issues that caused the pieces to leave, so they will not leave again. Once we are complete, I connect you to your Soul, Your Higher Self, and the Creator. I then activate your Light body and connect it to the Love Grid around the Earth. Finally, I connect you to your Divine Blueprint.

Soul Retrieval is Life Changing

I have seen a Soul Retrieval totally change a person's life almost and even at times overnight. Clients who have experienced a Soul Retrieval Retreat say that they feel more powerful, stronger, happier and complete. The only negative comment I have received after a Soul Retrieval is being sleepy the next day.

 

RITES OF PASSAGE

Offered for a $100.00 Love Offering and travel expenses we will perform by authenticated traditional values all the below mentioned Rites Of Passage and continue a life long fellowship of support for each. 

Your children deserve the same respect that all spiritual family values empower them to and based upon the ethnic traditional values of the Chillicothie Romani Familia and performed by a Romani mystic trained extensively in it's application!

The Rite of Naming
Given to a child at any age from three months to one year old, the purpose of the ritual is to formally accept the child as one of the tribe and to give him his name – and with it, his link to his ancestors (the past), his community (the present), and his destiny (the future).
The blessings of the Powers of the World are asked to be upon the child as he begins his journey. Four symbols (runes, Tarot cards, etc.) are drawn for the child, representing his progress through the stages of life – Boy, Man, Elder and Sage. These symbols, along with their possible meanings, are passed down to the child when he is old enough to understand them. If the child is to have godparents, the godparents will be asked to take the child’s hand during the Rite and to swear their oaths to watch over him and guide him.

The Rite of Understanding
Given at 5 years of age, the purpose of the ritual is to acknowledge a child’s passage from infant to boy, the first step along the path to manhood. The boy is given a gift to mark his passage from the hands of his father (or godfather or man closest to him, if the father is not present), usually a protective amulet on a chain. The Rite is of necessity short and fairly simple, to accommodate the child’s attention span.

The Rite of Responsibility
Given at 10 years of age, the purpose of the ritual is to acknowledge that a boy is ready to begin assuming an increased amount of responsibility for himself and his actions. If the boy in question is the child or close relative of a Knight of the Order, he may ask to become a page of the Hall at this time. The boy is presented with a small knife from the hands of his father (or godfather, etc.) as a sign of the trust that has now been placed in him. He may choose a new name to be known by in ritual, his boy’s name


The Rite of Maturity
Given at 15 years of age, the purpose of the ritual is to acknowledge that a boy has proven himself to be responsible, and is now ready to begin assuming some of the duties of manhood. If the boy in question is the child or close relative of a Knight of the Order, he may ask to become a Squire of the Hall at this point, with his father or relative as his sponsor. He must be at least 19 years of age, however, before petitioning for membership as a Knight- Probationer of the Hall. The boy is presented with a ritual dagger from the hands of his father (or godfather, etc.) as a sign of the increased trust that has now been placed in him.

The Rite of Manhood
Given at 20 years of age, the purpose of the ritual is to acknowledge that a boy has proven himself responsible, mature, and worthy to be called a man. At this point, if the boy has been accepted as a Knight-Probationer of the Hall and has fulfilled all necessary obligations, he may be Knighted. If he has chosen not to join the Order, he is not
Knighted, but is still presented with a sword from the hands of his father (or godfather, etc.) as a sign of his new status, and may choose a new name to be known by in ritual.

The Rite of Handfasting
The Rite of Handfasting is a marriage ceremony led by a qualified representative of the Hall. The purpose of the ritual is to bind two lovers in matrimony, ritually enumerating their duties to each other and acknowledging their oaths to abide by these vows. The two exchange rings as a sign of their pledging, and their hands are ritually bound together. They pass under an arch of swords held by
Knights of the Hall, representing the Hall’s promise to watch over and protect the couple.


The Rite of Elderhood
The Rite of Elderhood is given to a man upon reaching the age of 40. The purpose of the ritual is to acknowledge the contributions a man has made to the Order and to the community, and the honor he has gained in doing so. The man may be presented with a gift from the Order to mark his new status. He may also choose a new name to be known by in ritual, to reflect the lessons the years have taught him.

The Rite of Sagehood
The Rite of Sagehood, similar in many ways to the Rite of Elderhood, is given to a man upon reaching the age of 60. The purpose of the Rite is to acknowledge the contributions a man has made to the Order and to the community, and the honor, wisdom and respect he has gained in doing so. The man may be presented with a gift from the Order to mark his new status. He may also choose a new name to be known by in ritual, to reflect the lessons the years have taught him.

The Rite of Remembrance
The Rite of Remembrance is given to a man or woman at death, and serves to mark his or her passage to the Land Beyond the Veil. Those who knew the deceased are invited to share their memories, so that he or she may not be forgotten, and the Litany of Remembrance is spoken.

So here we can easily see how we, as modern Pagan spiritual males and females, have missed the mark and struggle to find our center. Now you can move to higher levels of consciousness with the self-empowering modalities you will now have available to you and even stop the cycle within the home and family so wisdom can finish what Knowledge has started. Welcome to your Empowerment!
