Freya, The Norse Goddess of Love

Freyas photo in the adoption ad

We have a new family member, a four legged and furry one. It always happens shortly after the loss of a family member to old age or sickness, despite our fervent protestations that it will not. We start talking about how it will be nice to have a smaller family; a less stress and work sort of thing. Sounds good logically but apparently, our hearts never agree. And so, the Universe and our higher selves conspire and next thing you know, along comes a synchronistic event for us to recognize and then make a choice about whether or not to act on it.

Mary Baker Duncan

Mary Baker Duncan was born on an April afternoon in 1986 on the patio outside our trailer in Tucson, one kitten in a litter of 5. When we moved into this trailer park, we began feeding the many strays and we became especially close with a female cat that we named Branwen, also known as Brownie. When we noticed that she was pregnant, I built her a little cat house in the hopes that she’d choose to deliver her babies in it and that we could help keep them safe in this rough and tough neighborhood.

What I Did On My Summer Vacation

I knew I was overdue for a vacation, especially with the extreme chaos of the past 12 months at work. And yet, it really didn’t sink in how out of shape my body/spirit/mind alignment was until I got in the saddle and took off on an 8-day motorcycle tour of Glacier National Park in Montana and the Canadian Rockies.

A Hypnotic State

“I’m not sure I can be hypnotized.” Inga and I hear that a lot and that intrigues us because as we’ve explored the astral and spirit realms, we’ve come to think of the reality of the conscious, logical mind as the “trance” or hypnotic state. Why? Read the rest of this entry »


Dental Floss

“True reality is more complex than our eyes lead us to believe.” I recently ran across that line in a book I was reading and my astral adventures of the past couple of years have certainly proven this statement to me. Many of you have read of my work to guide lost souls, or ghosts, to the Light and I willingly share such healing events. What I am now about to share with you, I do so more reluctantly. These are accounts of my recent close encounters with the “Little People”, or Elementals. Read the rest of this entry »


September 11, 2001

This is going to be a rather lengthy edition of the Duncan Domain. I had other projects to report on but an event occurred on September 11, 2001 that has pushed all that aside for now. I’ll first report on the spiritual healing activities that Inga and I and others have been doing and then I’ll share my emotional and rational response to the event. Read the rest of this entry »


Feng Shui And Larry The Loach

Inga continues to tweak the energy of our house using Chinese Feng Shui principles. If you’ve come over to the house this past year, you’ve no doubt seen the new fountain in the rose garden. It straddles the Knowledge/Self Cultivation and Career sections of the house. If you’ve been reading our newsletters for the past 6 months you’ll agree that a lot has happened in those areas of our life! If you are not up on this ancient practice, I can provide some background. Read the rest of this entry »


One Of His Shepherds

In 1993, I found myself at a fork in the road called my life. When it came to my career, I had not been following my heart but my head. While I had achieved certain accomplishments, I had not found lasting joy or satisfaction in my work. My self-image was battered enough that I was unable to listen to or trust my heart, my intuition in these matters. So I stuck with logic in trying to develop a better course of action. Never mind that logic alone had been consistently failing me! I stubbornly persisted, thinking that I just had to try harder. (I think that’s what AA states as the definition of insanity!)

The "Oh Shit" Report

You know how you’ll be going along in life and at some point you become aware that pressure is building up deep within your mind? Pressure to do something, to change your life somehow? At first, you feel a bit restless but as the pressure builds, you become flat out uncomfortable. If you are like me, you’ll start inventorying your life and wonder what you’re doing wrong. Finding nothing too terribly out of line, I make a desperate call to my astrologer and ask, “What the hell is going on???” Read the rest of this entry »


Conveying Souls To The Light

Inga and I were recently asked to cleanse an apartment of any astral entities before the new renters moved in. This would be the first time Inga and I have collaborated on such a task so I asked what she’d like me to do. She suggested that I follow her from room to room as she checked for the presence of entities with her pendulum and “smudged” each room with cedar smoke while I “sealed” each room with white light. I learned this sealing technique from White Elk, my spiritual teacher, in response to my nightly sleep often being interrupted by uninvited astral “guests”. Read the rest of this entry »
