Meeting These Challenges


Our own inner awakening, or the Great Shamanic Work, begins our ability to meet these challenges.  We can no longer look outside ourselves for the quick solutions. We must go within and make the changes necessary to bring forth love, harmony and beauty.

As Within, So Without

We cannot create significant change on any level, particularly a planetary level, if we are not willing to make significant changes in ourselves.  Out of our individual stretch for excellence, self-healing, and accountability, we can live fulfilled, meaningful lives and take our place among the Rainbow Light Warriors who form the collective rallying force for the Gold Horse.

We are pioneers at the edge of a major leap in consciousness and evolutionary development.  The Hopi prophecies say we are in the process of moving into the Fifth World, and we are blessed with the divine opportunity to redefine that world.  Do we have the commitment, the courage, and the imagination to step up to the line and enlist in this most auspicious of opportunities, the challenge of becoming balanced humans?

Achieving Balance in a Chaotic World

On a Sunday afternoon in April, Jan Orsi, co-author of  Song of the Deer, spoke in Scottsdale at the monthly forum sponsored by The Institute of Noetic Sciences on the topic of “Achieving Balance in a Chaotic World.” Speaking to a gathering of 30 people, Jan focused on the uncommon warrior in each of us that transforms tyrants into teachers and chaos into opportunity.

As a speaker, Jan draws on her interest in waking people up to understand how balance can be achieved in these chaotic times through access to the ancient teachings. She achieves this by taking the audience on a journey through the medicine wheels of learning.

Drawing on a teaching that identifies specific kinds of tyrants in order to learn how  to change these situations, Jan engaged the audience in reflection on particular relationships and life situations that participants had found difficult.  This discussion revealed new options and opportunities by encouraging participants to choose truth and integrity in relationships over approval, recognition, security, and acceptance.

Through her writing, teaching, and one-on-one mentoring, Jan touches students of all ages.  Her determination is to seek knowledge, step beyond belief, and produce Beauty.

More about IONS

From the IONS-Phoenix web site:

“What is IONS? The Institute of Noetic Sciences was created 35 years ago by Edgar Mitchell, one of our first astronauts to the moon. As he saw the earth rise over the surface of the moon, it was such an extraordinary, emotional experience for him that he suddenly knew there was no separation of spirit, mind and matter. And that one day science would come to fully understand this interconnectedness.”
