The Dominican Republic and Tourist Deaths An astrological fall from grace

Recently there have been a rash of tourist deaths at Dominican Republic resorts, immediately following resort stays —all within the past year. The media attention to the deaths of these visitors led me to look at the astrological chart of the Dominican Republic. What current astrological transits and indicators point the way and give insight to these sudden deaths and to the numerous others who fell dangerously ill while vacationing at the island’s resorts?

Surly over the years people have died or got sick while on vacation in the Dominican Republic but currently the media attention is tightly focused on this island. There are many unanswered questions such as why some visitors to the Dominican dodged death but instead fell dangerously ill. Some vacationers reported a weird “chemical smell” and others reported that they became ill after having a drink from the hotel room’s minibar.
Local and federal US authorities are investigating these numerous rash deaths to see if they can figure ou…

Tattoos Chronicle the Soul's Journey

There is no denying that tattoos have a certain type of energy. They not only hint at your daring side, but also open a portal into the dimensions of your soul.

Thousands of years ago, ancient indigenous cultures recognized a deep connection to the cosmos, nature, and the realm of spirit as evidenced in their art, symbols, metaphorical myths, and their use of tattoos. These venerable cultures weren’t superstitious, they were enlightened. Their close relationship with the spirit world wasn’t muted by religious dogma, or overshadowed by technology. It was a true and pure authentic connection that very few cultures maintain today. They knew there was a mystical connection in art and symbols and an even more profound magic in creating and adorning themselves with tattoos. Images that were put on the skin represented an embodiment that linked directly to consciousness. Tattoos told stories, encouraged healing, empowered the wearer, and tapped into the hidden realms of the spirit. Tattoos w…

Tattoos, symbols, and the language of the soul

Looking at tattoos as a way to view the emergence of your soul is a new concept that has ancient roots in man’s once-close association with the realm of spirit. Emotional energies become incarnate through tattoo symbols. Your inked images are the interpreters between the seen and unseen realms that we quantumly exist in at all times. Understanding your tattoos beyond the ink is a bit like learning a new language because nothing is what it appears to be on the surface. There is always the deeper meaning attached to some emotion or memory. Tattoos and the symbols you embody can be powerful tools for accessing self-knowledge. Your ink can initiate an inner healing, mark a transition in your life, and be a creative outlet for authentic self-expression. Tattoo art, symbols, and even the light and dark of the colors used for shading, are actually a mirror of your inner world. Tattoos reflect your inner architecture and current mindset as you move through life. The art and symbols can best …

Review of Conscious Ink: The Hidden Meaning of Tattoos

I just received an advanced copy of Lisa Barretta's new book "Conscious Ink". WOW!!! I just read the intro to the book and I can already tell that this book is going to be the #goto#tattoobible for people who are waking up to the possibilities of tattooing as true self empowerment! 

This book is chock full of all kinds of stories, photos and things to consider before getting your first or next tattoo. 

I also respect that the book tells stories from the clients' perspectives, including photos of tattoos that aren't necessarily of the highest art, but are deeply meaningful to the wearer. 

What I got from #ConsciousInk is that a well executed tattoo without conscious intention is not enough; although it may be a technically excellent piece of art, such a tattoo can often appear flat and lifeless, as if it were photoshopped.

A new kind of tattoo enthusiast has been born who wants to grow, who embraces change and looks for healing transformation in their l…
