Luminous Ima Antonio

Luminous Ima Antonio has always had the ability to walk between the physical and spiritual worlds.  Psychic phenomena, including several near death experiences, levitation, stigmata, vast psychic and spiritual openings and incidents of spontaneous healing informed her directly and deeply of the limitless possibilities available to us.

Luminous is the founder and director of the Spiritual Archaeology Society, author of a series of authoritative books on Spiritual Archaeology, Sacred Places and Hidden Histories.  She is a lifelong inter-dimensional researcher, painter and poet of sacred places and invisible worlds. She is the founder of the X-Static Sound (1986) to research and further the uses of vibrational frequencies (Tibetan bowls, bells, crystal bowls) and voice harmonics.

She attended the New School for Social Research and Pratt in New York studying psychology, philosophy comparative religions and graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute with degrees in Painting and Performance/Video. She trained with Multi-dimensional Research and Expansion for three years and later initiated a two-year study on Past Life Regression.  Her visual and multimedia art speaks of inner worlds and unseen dimensions.

Since childhood, people have trusted luminous and spoken with her about their deepest dreams and concerns. It was a natural progression for her to find modalities through which she could be of service to more and more people. Luminous spent two years studying with Multidimensional Research and Expansion, participated in a two year project on past life regression, and continues to work with clients throughout the world.

After an experience of spontaneously channeling voice harmonics in 1985, Luminous founded the Temple of X-Static Sound to introduce this “language beyond language” to as many people as possible. She spent several years working with voice harmonics, Tibetan bowls, bells, crystal bowls and frequencies. Luminous worked with individuals and groups utilizing sonic resonance to shift perception, heighten awareness, eliminate pain, and re-calibrate the energy system and body. X-Static Sound is still utilized in her seminars and practice as a way to move beyond the constraints of consensus reality and the logical mind.

Luminous 02-13 jackie_klieger_-0632 - CopyThe transformational modalities Luminous has mastered over the past decades synthesize beautifully into the practice of Spiritual Archaeology. Her ability to articulate and transmit ancient and future wisdom connects us with our Full Potential Self, presenting a pathway to higher consciousness.  Since 1988, Luminous has conducted journeys to Sacred Places with individuals and groups.

During the past 20 years she has lived and thrived in the mystical beauty of Sedona, Arizona.  She is a world-renowned Transformational Consultant and successful Real Estate Broker.  Luminous has been a guide to sacred places for the past 22 years and offers Spiritual Archaeology Journeys in Sedona, Peru and other locations around the world.

Sacred Places and Practical Shamanism

Sacred Places and Practical Shamanism

Shamanism is the integration of the physical and spiritual realms of existence and is based on the knowledge that all life is interconnected. My name is Luminous and I have spent my life working to define my experience and learn languages to express the world I see and live in.  Painting, performing, poetry and writing are among the ways I attempt to speak of the unspeakable, define the invisible, and illustrate what is possible. Although not a follower of teachers or teachings, others have appeared to let me know that they have walked a difficult path—one of being in the world and not of it.  Those born to walk between the worlds have a big learning curve that spirals far beyond the idea of fitting in. The shaman is a human bridge between the unseen realms of guiding spirits and this world; present time—Now.  Shamanic practice requires full presence in the Now, as you cannot be a bridge to a place you are not present in. Shamanism – painting by Luminous The terms shaman and shamanism are overused and improperly allocated to medicine people and other practitioners.  Specific shamanic practices are endlessly varied—originating from diverse cultures and belief systems.  Dressed in a variety of outfits, shamans are plentiful and questionable.  While one can study the practices of shamanism and evolve their sensitivity, there are other initiations that must occur and these cannot happen in a classroom or online.  If you choose to work with a shaman, ask about their background, lineage, training and experience.  Use your intuitive abilities and inner knowing to tune into the person and their depth of experience and value to you.  Do not become star struck—take the time to divine who you are dealing with and whether they have something to offer you. The word Shaman originated among the Siberian Tungus (Evenks) and literally means:  s/he who knows. Shamanism was practiced long before organized religion came into being.  As an earth based spiritual practice, shamanism cuts across all faiths and creeds and reaches into the depths of ancestral memory.  Some societies believe shamanic abilities are inherited and can only be passed from generation to generation.  Others believe shamans must be “called” to serve—apprenticing themselves to accomplished shamans. According to some, the shaman is naturally initiated. Being struck by lightning, a personal psychological crisis, a near death experience or a serious illness can initiate the shaman.  Almost certainly, there is a trauma involved.  This trauma shifts the consciousness—often requiring the shaman to leave the body, at least temporarily, in order to survive.  Once out of the body, the shaman begins to explore the invisible realms of existence.  Relationships may be formed, revelatory visions may occur—particularly visions defining the specific powers a person may have. Once the ability to leave the body and travel to other dimensions and speak with the spirit world is established, the shaman will be lead to each next step.  The teachings and skills come directly from the spirit world. Practical shamanism is the natural expression of your true self—your ancient heritage expressing in your now and future selves.  You have been conditioned to desensitize and disconnect in order to live in the world.  Freeing yourself from outside influences and the steady stream of incoming information—often fear based–is the first step in reclaiming your deep sensitivity and experiencing heightened states of...
