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→
Entering a meditative state and communicating with spirit in a manner similar to automatic writing, Entura Art is automatic, fun, free-flowing and uses color. There is little thinking involved. Standard art itself involves left brain for technique, and Entura Art requires no formal technical knowledge. In fact, the beauty of Entura Art is that NO prior art training or experience is necessary.
Relaxation and inquisitiveness is key. You ask a question while in a meditative state and the information is received. It is as if you serve as an antennae and container collecting the information until you sit down to draw it. The information which is in the form of energy then flows from you and comes out on paper. Often with amazing results! Without intending to, people draw animals, places, forms, and people in startling detail. Each element and form that expresses on the paper has a reason for appearing.
In an Entura Art course, exercises are used to assist with relaxation and entering a meditative state; and students write down or discuss their interpretations of artwork completed in class. In a beginner class the artwork is done while either blindfolded or with eyes closed. This assists students with truly getting ‘out of their head’ and removing ‘ego’ while doing the artwork. With practice and trust of the energy that is flowing, a student can eventually progress to removing the blindfold without allowing their mind and intention to get in the way of allowing the information to flow through onto paper unhindered. After you complete the art, the relaxed state continues because it is from interpretation of the image that the information is received.
Recall that the artwork answers a question. The images are often very beautiful and wonderful to view. No matter how many times you see the image, you may see something new in the artwork that you have never seen before. The information is luminous and multidimensional, representative of our spiritual selves. The artwork appears to change over time to continually give more information- whether you are looking at the physical artwork or a digital image of it. One amazed student recently told us “It is as if it takes on a life of its own after it is drawn!” Read More→

If you or someone you know has been feeling moody, tired, depressed, anxious, the autumn blahs or winter blues, you or they could be experiencing SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). SAD is a type of anxiety, sadness or depression that occurs at the same time of the year on a recurring basis. Symptoms often begin in the fall as the daylight hours shorten (often in October or November) and continue into the winter months (ending in January or February). Less frequently, SAD can be experienced by some in the spring with the lengthening of daylight hours (around April) and continues through the summer. Read More→
On April 1, 2011, following a series of intense storms in Mooresville, North Carolina on March 30th & 31st, 2011, a mysterious new pyramid appeared to emerge from nowhere in the early morning mist! Traffic was stopped (as usual) in the early morning rush on Brawley School Road as people gawked at what had appeared seemingly overnight in a previously flat landscape.
“Clearly this is the work of extraterrestrial beings!” exclaimed 7th grader Austin L. from the back seat of his family car. “No, it is a sign of what is to come in 2012!” retorted another local resident who struggled to get their child to school on time in the backed-up traffic. Read More→
