So you are looking at the monthly events in your local community calendar and wondering who would be the most appropriate teacher for this metaphysical journey that you have embarked upon. Confusion reigns as the choices seem overwhelming and a number of questions run through your mind. “How do I pick the right teacher?” “Will it be the one teaching the coolest, new course? The cheapest or the one that is the most expensive?” “Should I choose the teacher who looks worst dressed, best dressed, or most exotic in their photo?”
There are individuals, groups, cults and organizations teaching different aspects of metaphysics, spirituality and spiritual systems all over the planet. How can you tell who is real and who is not? What qualifications do you need to become a metaphysical or spiritual teacher? Many teachers seem self – appointed in the West without much experience or training, while in eastern traditions it usually takes several years of intense study to achieve a master or teacher status. There are some programs in the U.S. that require certain standards and course study completion to be certified as having mastered a particular course of metaphysical or spiritual study. But how do you know if your teacher is certified? How do you know if your teacher is “walking their talk“?
A true teacher wants to empower you to rediscover all of your innate gifts and abilities including remembering all the spiritual knowledge you already have, but have not yet accessed. A true metaphysical instructor will be the one who teaches YOU to “be the channel” for your own self rather than constantly trying to distract you with past-life entertainment or “wow” you with their psychic or medium-ship abilities. There is certainly a time and place where past-life regression may be useful in one’s personal journey to find greater understanding of a specific issue.However, we often find ‘gurus’ using it as a curiosity to attract new customers or followers.
We suggest that you consider the following when you are looking for a serious metaphysical or spiritual teacher:
1. What are the teacher’s qualifications? Do they have a certification or degree from an accredited school? Do they have a divinity degree or a degree in metaphysics? Although certification and ‘degree’ is not the most important thing. Lineage through contact with someone with advanced understanding or with someone who truly has gone within to obtain that is revealed when someone truly ‘walks their talk’. The masters had lineage and often trained with other masters before them – even the most well-known avatars reached their enlightened status after training in the Ancient Mystery or Wisdom Schools of their era; and learning to meditate and go within to the tiny space in the sacred space of the heart to hear the ‘still small voice within’.
2. If they offer hypnotherapy or spiritual counseling, do they have training in counseling such as a Doctorate, Masters Degree or Read More→
The vernal (spring) equinox occurs today (March 20, 2014) and it marks or celebrates the balance of light and dark. At this time, a shift takes place from the earth energy of winter (when we go within for introspection) to the airiness and Light of spring (a time of new creation and rebirth). From the cold, hibernating darkness of earth and stone and the roots of trees, sap awakens and begins to rise; the sun mingled with gentle breeze begins to warm and soothe us; and the skies (representing the ethers and spiritual connectedness) become thickly inhabited once again. New opportunities arrive and portals open for new creations to begin.
2. “The Shift Doctors” will be teaching an Introductory Entura Art class in the near future due to the overwhelming positive response we had to Entura Art on display at SHIFT Charlotte 2014 last weekend. Please send us an email at info@ShiftYourLife.com to let us know if you have an interest in learning this intuitive art form where you “connect with and enter the aura or energy” of a person (living or deceased), a spiritual being, or a concept and then allow that energy to flow through you onto paper with eyes closed or without allowing your ego to direct the energy. NO previous art experience is necessary . Read More→

The Shift Doctors (Tracy Latz, M.D. & Marion Ross, Ph.D.) are returning to L. A. County Jail on February 28, 2011!! They intend to “do the time” with the women of the Women-In-Transition-Support (WITS) program who have expressed a desire to Shift Their Lives as they prepare for release at the end of their period of incarceration. The following is what the Shift Doctors reported from their last class taught at the jail in 2010:
“We taught our one-day (8 hour) Shift your Life seminar to the Women of WITS (WOW) program at the L.A. County Jail in Los Angeles, California. WOW really does say it all!! What a profound shiftng experience for everyone involved! After experiencing our True Essence meditation (during which each person meets their True Essence, who they truly are, and reclaims gifts and abilities they may have long forgotten), one person in the back of the room yelled out: “How dare you!!” as she raised her arm out and pointed her finger at me with a smiling, tear-stained face as she shook her head back and forth. She later read a poem she wrote during one of the breaks about the experience. Essentially, she explained that she had convinced herself that no one cared about her and that she had learned to not care about herself. “How dare you make me cry and make me smile and make me admit that you do care about me and make me start to care about myself!” Read More→
