Space Oddity

Soul retrieval is an ancient form of healing following the tribal belief that all illness was a result of an issue with the soul. By healing the etheric body, wellness could be restored at all levels. Even by today’s standard, it is believed that there is a metaphysical cause that creates any imbalance leading to disharmony, disease, or illness. We also know that environmental and genetic influences can play a role with any form of disharmony, but it stands to reason that resolving any issue with the soul can bring balance through a focus on energy.

With understanding basic concepts around disruptions at the soul level, the detective in me was thirsty for more. I wanted to know all the different types of soul fragmentation, in order to target the specific needs of my client. So I immersed myself into the information as I studied the different categories of fragmentation and then applyed those to the experiences of working with my clients.

One of my clients this last week was a fortyish male that had seen such a remarkable difference in the behavior of his 14 year-old son after a session with me, that he came in to experience my work. His intention was around a haunting feeling that he had experienced for his entire life. He felt like a part of him was missing and his mild manner had turned to anger repeatedly during the course of his life with regard to this sense of separation. As we worked together to assess his energy, it became clear that he had a soul fragmentation and 30% of his energy was remote. His description of his experiences was a perfect match for the reality of his energetic imabalnce. One of my impression was this was his first lifetime on this Earth, which might seem unusual to some and not so far-fetched to others.

I explained the process of welcoming his energy back into his mind/body space, along with the potential for a behavior modification in the next few weeks as he integrated and transformed himself. He was all in and when I asked how he felt about the assessment and information, he replied ‘hopeful’. We moved over to the light table and began the process of the soul retrieval. As the fragments of consciousness began to return, a movie began to play in my head.

What I was seeing in my mind’s eye began with a portal in a starry sky that opened to a spaceship falling out of the portal. I saw energy forms looking a screen on the spaceship, and on that screen was a male and a female. The impression was he was choosing parents. (Keep in mind that intuitive information from spirit comes across in many forms, and usually in a metaphoric sense so that we can easily interpret.) As he exited the spaceship, his energy body fell to this Earth.

As the energy raced toward the planet, there was a problem….a miscalculation. Part of the energy of his spirit split apart, and the image was similar to fireworks or metal breaking apart in the atmosphere. It was an image similar to the one in the movie ‘After Earth’ when the spaceship broke apart and one section landed several miles away from the other section, essentially splitting the ship into two main debris fields. In the imagery with my client on the table, one main section landed into a human female and the process of gestation began, but there were parts missing

The entire movie played in my mind’s eye over a ten minute period, with my client on the energy device accepting his remote fragments in the retrieval of the soul. One of the more interesting features, was that there was a song was playing loudly like a soundtrack to a movie the entire time. That song was ‘Space Oddity,’ which was released as a single by David Bowie in July of 1969 a few months after my client was born! The lyrics are as follows.

Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
Ground Control to Major Tom (ten, nine, eight, seven, six)
Commencing countdown, engines on (five, four, three)
Check ignition and may God’s love be with you (two, one, liftoff)
This is Ground Control to Major Tom
You’ve really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it’s time to leave the capsule if you dare
“This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today
For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do
Though I’m past one hundred thousand miles
I’m feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much she knows
Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit’s dead, there’s something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you “Here am I floating ’round my tin can
Far above the moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do

The session had such a high vibration that the feelings were inescapable. The client said he felt calm on the inside and very together following the session. The next day, I heard from him when he shared that he was in his vehicle at a stop light and the song Space Oddity began to play on the radio, which to him was an affirmation from the Universe. He continued to feel calm and together as he integrated the energy.

The message sparked something inside me. I researched the song and found that it was recorded in February of 1969. The clients birthday was in April of 1969, which means the David Bowie was inspired to write that song while my client was in the womb of his mother. You can’t make this stuff up!



People often see me as a shaman, or one who engages in shamanistic activities, so I decided to look up the meaning (tee hee). By my personal definition, many shamans are out there. To me, a shaman is someone who has overcome great challenges in their own life, then uses the experience to help others.

The word ‘shaman’ originates from the cultures of North Asia, dating back thousands of years. According to Wikipedia, Mircea Eliade writes, A first definition of this complex phenomenon, and perhaps the least hazardous, will be: shamanism = ‘technique of religious ecstasy’. Shamanism encompasses the premise that shamans are intermediaries or messengers between the human world and the spirit worlds. Shamans are said to treat ailments/illness by mending the soul.

Shamanism can also be defined as a practice that involves a practitioner reaching altered states of consciousness in order to access benevolent spirits. The shaman can go into a trance by using ritual or ceremony as a way to bring the spirits present. The crystal bed is a device that facilitates the client going into an alpha state, which enables each person to access their spirit helpers. The need to go into a trance in order to access the spirit realm seems as ‘old school’ as a séance. We all have the ability to access other realms and can remain in a grounded presence when messaging occurs with spirit guides. Let’s get a whisper on the subject of shamanism:

Shamanism begins with being open to the mysteries of the world that lie beyond the physical. Accessing different dimensions can be done using a variety of methods that align each person with the vibrations and frequencies of other realms. Once you understand how to access those frequencies, the process becomes easier and without the need for trances or altered states. Upon making a connection, healing energy with the soul can increase.

Reaching altered states can appeal to those on the spiritual path, representing the fastest way to experience other dimensions. But this approach can bring unexpected consequences. The original shamans dedicated a big part of their lives to the spiritual practices handed down by their ancestors. Fast food is not necessarily filled with nourishment, and neither is fast spiritual food.  

Take your time to learn spiritual methods, then practice your passion like an artist learning to master their craft. The more you practice, the more information you will gather and incorporate into your intended use, life purpose, interests, and service to the Divine. Traveling other dimensions offers many opportunities for false discernment. The ancient cultures were gifted at staying grounded, and many of those teachings have been lost.

In order to arrive at your proper destination, you need intentions that match your purpose. By establishing the foundation of your spiritual work through intentions, you will build a masterpiece grounded in the core essence of who you are. You do not need a title, a label, or a certificate to be the best spiritual messenger on the planet. Simply align yourself with the frequency and vibration that you brought into the world, by remembering who you are and why you came here.     

Archangel Raphael, Dr. Garcia and the Crystal Bed

Archangel Raphael, Dr. Garcia and the Crystal Bed

In April of 2006, I became interested in crystals and their healing properties. As an ANGEL THERAPIST©, I was giving readings and connecting with angels for others as I started receiving information regarding the construction of a crystal healing bed. I soon came to believe that this information was coming from Archangel Raphael.

With an offer to use the basement of a historic house in my neighborhood, I spent my spare time assembling something that I knew very little about. My wife was very patient with the time consuming and costly venture as she would gently ask me “How do you know that thing will work?” I would just smile and tell her I didn’t know how, but I had faith that it would work!

This particular crystal bed combines ancient and modern modalities such as light (chromo-therapy), sound, vibrational, magnetic and crystal therapies to form a unique experience. I was also guided to read a book called the “Wings of Heaven” that described a stone placement formation called Archangel Michael’s gate, which is a gateway to the angelic realm. I added this feature to the bed as well.

Several times during the process, I felt as if someone was looking over my shoulder as I worked in this vacant house, considered by many to be the haunted house of the neighborhood. As it turns out, the house had historic designation as the “Garcia House”, due to the fact that the owner started the first Mexican-American newspaper in the state of Texas. He was also known as Dr Garcia and as I worked in the house, I discovered old glass test tubes and remnants of the life he led.

The current owner of the property told me stories of how he had converted the house into a mini-hospital that treated immigrants who could not afford health care. In return, they would perform duties around the property as their exchange for the treatments. I often felt the presence of Dr. Garcia and Archangel Raphael in that basement.

I finished the project in fifteen months and invited a friend to experience a trial on the crystal bed. The thirty minutes session was interesting, as part of her intentions for the session were to find out if she should fly to Florida to visit her ailing mother. Toward the end of her time on the bed, a small plane flew right over the house at a low altitude to deliver a message from the angel guides that the time was right. She described an overwhelming feeling of peace from her time on the crystal bed that was unique to the world.

I moved the bed to my house and began to offer the crystal bed to my clients and it quickly began to fill my practice. Looking back, I think that Archangel Raphael was ‘training’ me on how to use the crystal bed with the sessions morphing into a prescribed standard of treatment.

As I began each session, an emerald green light would fill my minds’ eye to signal the arrival of Archangel Raphael. Having worked with Archangel Michael in my angel readings, Archangel Raphael’s energy was quite different. His energy was more like a doctor, a loving doctor that often delivered important information on how to deal with an illness, pain or emotional issue.

I would often get an image of someone leaning over the client and working to remove cords and string-like objects, especially from the area of the heart. In addition, I would get visions of the bones, tissue and the flow of blood as a way to message me that these were areas receiving energetic movements.

The experiences with the crystal bed have been wide-ranging and at times mind-blowing with the results. With a background as a carpenter, I often wondered why this information would come to me, until one client pointed out that the angel could easily message me with information about construction, in addition to the information regarding healing.

As an alternative practitioner, I often see people who do not resonate with western medicine or have inoperable situations such as tumors or heart conditions. In one case, I did two sessions with a woman that suffered from blocked arteries and had a genetic heart condition from birth which resulted in doctors turning her down for treatment. After the second session, she walked down my driveway and threw away her nine prescriptions, unbeknown to me. A year later, she reported what she had done and told me that from that day forward, she never suffered an angina attack. Prior to our visit, she had suffered from those painful attacks on a daily basis.

In another case, a woman found me after discovering that she had an aggressive form of breast cancer that had already produced a sizable tumor on her left side. After one treatment and visualization prescriptions from Archangel Raphael, she returned to her oncologist who reported the tumor was shrinking. I might add at this point, she undertook a strict regimen of diet and exercise in addition to her alternative therapy and remained under the guidance of a doctor and nutritionist. The doctors recommended surgery and hormone replacement therapy which she rejected. My client evoked her intuition and free will as she threw away her prescriptions with her faith in the angels and process that she had undertaken.

Some two years after the crystal bed was constructed, one of the grandchildren of Dr. Garcia unexpectedly made contact with me. Upon our meeting, she informed me that Dr. Garcia was interested in the metaphysical and not many people knew that about him. He practiced yoga and worked with crystals wands with copper windings. This was shocking information with the way the crystal bed is constructed utilizing copper, crystals and some of the principles of yoga among other things. Dr. Garcia must have added his energy to the process in more ways than I imagined.

There is a new story of healing everyday on the crystal bed built by angels, and I attribute that to Archangel Raphael, my eagerness to learn and a person’s willingness to step into their own natural abilities. I often tell my clients that I am merely a helper and someone who listens. In the beginning, I was attached to the outcome of the services that I provide, but Archangel Raphael helped me with the patience and expertise of a master counselor, by placing the energy of control and outcomes in the hands of the client and the Highest Power.

The feeling of helping people heal from such things as Cancer, addictions, emotional distress and pain is something that is hard to express in words, but I feel like when you request healing energy and help from Archangel Raphael (he who heals with God) and open your heart to the possibility that miracles exist, you have laid the groundwork for the acceptance of miracles in your life.
