are you missing your sushmana?

Caduceus, or Rod of Hermes.
Public domain.
In the past few weeks, I have run into a number of cases in which the client was missing part of his or her caduceus/sushmana. I wanted to go into it a little here because I have never found any other resource on handling missing caducei.

What is the Caduceus?

 In Greek mythology, Hermes carries a caduceus. It's also called a "herald's staff." Modern medicine has kind of usurped the symbol by mistake: the Rod of Asclepius, a famed Greek doctor, is similar, but only has one snake and no wings.

Indian spiritual anatomy refers to the sushumna, ida, and pingala--which look startlingly like the caduceus. The sushumna runs along the spine, and then the "snakes" of masculine and feminine energy are the the pingala and ida, respectively.

The Ida is feminine energy and starts in the root chakra and ends in the left nostril. The Pingala is masculine energy and ends in the right nostril.

In the past month, I'd say I've run into four cases where the client did not have at least one of those three crucial things (ida, pingala, sushmana). I frankly hadn't even realized that was possible until I scanned a client and didn't find anything there.

You may be missing your sushmana, ida, or pingala if:

- You have a significant imbalance in your masculine and feminine energies
- You feel you are doing things that should spark a kundalini rise (for example, meditation), but no rise is occurring
- You feel intuitively that you are missing these things
- You muscle test positive for not having them.

Restoring them will allow for the rise of kundalini, as well as increased energy flow throughout the body (and thus improved health).

Restoration can be simple--ask for it to be restored through prayer, or go into the theta state and make the request and witness it going through.

upcoming mentorship program

Announcing an upcoming mentorship program--

I've been putting this off because I haven't really wanted to do pursue it, frankly, but I can't put it off anymore. Every day I've been getting messages about mentoring.

What I feel it will be is four months, from January to April, or possibly six months, until June. It would involve regular (weekly or every-other-weekly) one-on-one checkins mixed with personal sessions meant to clear blocks from your path in this field. And probably 2-hour-long classes every other week involving everyone. It will be similar to the Home Healing Course I taught last year, except way more personalized and more intense--which is to say, more information, more one-on-one time, longer in duration, etc. It would be a commitment of approximately 3 hours a week of class time (including lessons and then one-on-one visits with me for personalized tutoring and energy work) and I would recommend committing to a minimum of 1-2 hours a week of active practice.

I'm feeling like this could be a life changer.

This needs to be offered by invitation only, but I have kept feeling like I have at least one secret blog-reading lurker who needs to see this and ask for the invitation, if that makes sense. Whoever you are, you are important! Reach out! Your helpers have been bothering me to write this post just for you!

I'm still figuring out the details but almost every day right as I'm inspired to think about it, I'll get an email about someone else's energy mentorship program... or someone will ask me to point them to opportunities to finesse their energetic capacities... or someone will ask me if I am meant to be their teacher. Seriously, every day for over a month this has been happening. So, I guess it's a thing!

If you read this and feel like this post is for you, please reach out. awinegarduzett @ gmail . com. You know the drill.
