Weekly Reflection

Reflection 22 05 15

This afternoon I will be attending a Ganesh Puja, a ritual in honor of Ganesha the Lord of Obstacles. It is sometimes thought that Ganesha removes all obstacles, but in fact he does that when it is for the Highest Good of the person, but he also places them in our path if we attempt to go in a direction that isn’t in our Highest Good.  So when we pray “Jai Jai Ganapati” (honor and praise to Ganesha), we are actually asking that Divine Aspect to help us on our way in the best way, which may or may not be the way that we think is best for us.  Usually we want to go that way because we have some preference or desire.  If we bring our intentions and desires to our High Self, and ask for true guidance, then this Lord of Obstacles and our own intentions will be in harmony.  So may it be for all of us!

Freely Give, Freely Receive


I am now offering all my classes and groups in exchange for dana.  This word means “donation or giving,” and the principle at its foundation is freely give, freely receive.  I freely offer what I have to share, and I freely receive your offerings.  You freely offer what feels appropriate to you, and you freely receive what I have to share.

There are three things to consider when deciding how much to give: the value to you of what you are receiving, the amount of time being given, and your own financial situation.

I believe that this way of exchanging energy is the way of the future.  It honors the people involved in the exchange and respects the needs and situations of everyone. It awakens us to the reality of the Abundance flowing through the Universe, which is an aspect of Sacred Unity, and it opens us to the flow of that blessing through our lives.

“Dreams and creativity are deeply connected.  You will find your artistic nature fed, energized, and inspired by working with your dreams.”

It’s better than therapy! — Aziza R

"Discover the serious fun you can have in working and playing with dreams in a group, whether it’s face to face or via the Internet. We discover things about ourselves, help and support each other, get inspired and receive great insight, and oh yes, we laugh a lot!"

One-To-One Dream Consultations

For a consultation via Zoom on your computer or phone, or in person in the Silver City area,  begin by making an appointment at azima@zianet.com and receiving guidelines to prepare for your session, which will last 1 to 1 ½ hours.

Tell Azima your dream (or dreams) and respond to clarifying questions if needed, and she will share what she sees, feels and learns from her version of the dream, but she will never tell you what your dream means for you — that will become clear in the session.

You can have as many sessions as you wish, in exchange for dana (donation), in accordance with the amount of time given and your financial situation.

Inquire about the special in-person executive dream consultation package.

“You can remember your dreams better and experience how they guide and inspire you to living more fully, happily, and on purpose.  I’d love to dive into your dreams with you!  Come join a class, group, or retreat."

Winged Heart Stained Glass

Sufism & . . .

I offer a one-hour class every Wednesday (5pm Pacific, 6pm Mountain, 7pm Central, 8pm Eastern time zones) exploring the connections and similarities between universal Sufism and some topic of interest.  Some of the topics i've covered since the class began are Astrology, the Edgar Cayce readings, Love Human & Divine, and Light.

This is a small class, and always includes an engaging discussion among the participants. If you would like to receive a link each week for the next class, including what the topic will be, send an email to azima@zianet.com with the subject Sufism &, and I'll add you to that list.
