Dear Friend and fellow Seeker,

Have you ever wondered where the contents of your imagination come from?

Is what you imagine and/or daydream about real?

Or is it more your creativity fueling your imagination?

As you may remember, recently, I interviewed Joseph B. Shumway for my YouTube channel.

In addition to being a professional Accredited Genealogist, he is also a Certified Ancestral Lineage Healing Practitioner.

The Ancestral Lineage Healing method Joseph employs originates from the work of Dr. Daniel Foor.

I was very interested in the concept of ancestral lineage healing but worried that I would have a similar experience as I had with the Ogham guided journeys.

I just about wrote off everything that I experienced as my imagination and "not real." I felt silly even to have tried to believe.

However, after speaking with Joseph, I took a leap of faith and signed up for a block of his ancestral lineage healing sessions.

Before we dove into our first session, we discussed some theories and questions I had, one of which was:

How do I know if what I am seeing in my mind is real or just my imagination?

Joseph's answer was simple, yet profound to me.

Paraphrasing, he said something to the effect that my imagination is real.

It is true, we all have imaginations. And I don't think anybody would seriously dispute that fact.

So if my imagination is real, where does its content come from?

Life experiences, learned information, dreams, and hopes...?

I don't know. It could be many things, including perhaps one's meditative journey communicating through it.

Much research has gone into how our imaginations work.

Currently, there is no proven definitive answer to how our imagination works, only speculation.

The only real consensus from researchers and experts is that nobody really knows how our imagination works.

So, I took Joseph's answer to heart and didn't worry about whether what I was about to see would be real or my imagination, which I now accept as real.

As a result, I am having fantastic ancestral lineage healing sessions. I go with the flow and accept things for what they are.

Another lesson I learned is that while researching, developing knowledge, and testing different things, I need to step out of my shoes of being an analytical skeptic.

There will always be time to apply my analytical skills and skepticism at the end.

But to truly understand what I will be passing judgment upon, I must experience it in the intended way.

Ultimately, it may be beneficial to roll with your imagination and let it take you where it wants to go.

You may experience new and wonderful things.

As Albert Einstein notably said:

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

Right now, I hope your imagination is taking you over to my YouTube channel to subscribe...

Special Announcement

After interviewing and speaking with Tiffany Lazic of the Soul Alchemist Academy, I decided to try her courses.

Tiffany has quite the credentials:

"Tiffany Lazic is a Registered Psychotherapist, Spiritual Director, and Certified Havening Techniques Practitioner, specializing in Spiritual Psychotherapy, with over two decades experience in individual, couples, and group therapy."

The course I am currently taking is called "The Spiritual Language of Symbols."

I am really enjoying it!

Tiffany doesn't just throw tons of knowledge and information at you. She teaches you what you need to know in that given moment and does it experientially.

The classes are very interactive if you attend the live Zoom sessions.

All students are provided a private video link and presentation PDFs as well. This works great for people unavailable during the live class but would still like to take the course.

The next class Tiffany will be starting is called "Drawing Down Divine."

It will begin on October 18th. Check it out at

I am already signed up!

Note that in no way do I have a financial interest in you enrolling in one of her classes. I fully paid for the classes that I am or will be taking.
