Coffee with Dakota

You asked the questions, I shared some insights from the soul to hopefully give some answers for you. These are real questions from people across the globe. I would imagine us having coffee and long lingering conversations about these things. For now, a video will have to suffice.

[060]Coffee with Dakota: Overwhelmed by Energy – Help!

I find myself continually being overwhelmed by the energy of the world around me. Despite my best efforts of daily meditation, encircling myself with protection, practicing gratitude, shamanic breathing and calling on my spirit animal, I still have trouble shaking the heaviness for any length of time.

[059] Coffee with Dakota: The Importance of Nature

Today I had the help of Luna Rae to help me answer this question and let me tell you, there is some great wisdom that comes from the mouth of babes!
Why do you feel Dakota that it is so important to be out in nature?

[058] Coffee with Dakota: Thin Veils & Messages in the Moment

I was so happy to hear how you listen for messages from your guides while not actually journeying as we know it, but by paying attention and being aware of your surroundings. I must say that my guides speak louder to me when I am not actually journeying, but when I am just staying aware during awake time. It seems I either read or heard a recording of Sandra Ingerman once saying that the veil is getting so thin that some of us can commune with our guides without the need for ceremony. Have you heard anything like that, or do you know others like that?

[057] Coffee with Dakota: Embracing What I Do

Filmed live in Cincinnati, Ohio where I joined Patti who wanted to talk about her sacred purpose and finding meaning in the work she does.

[056]Coffee with Dakota: Why is Little Insignificant Me so Important?

I need to know how I fit in to the fabric of the Universe and why little insignificant me (on the larger scale of things) is so important? How do I make any difference?

[055]Coffee with Dakota: I Feel Like I am Cursed! Help!

I feel like a “Jinx” is battering me. Do you believe in such a thing? Or could it be a “generational curse”? Do you believe in either of these things? What can I do to “stop” it? I get the feeling that something’s ‘trying to trip me up.’

[054]Coffee with Dakota: Am I on the Right Path?

How do I know if I’m on the right path? If not, how do I know which direction to go? How do I choose the path that’s right for me?

[053]Coffee with Dakota: Am I a Healer?

Does it mean anything that I feel drawn to energy healing and possibly have empathic ability ? I’m drawn to the concept of “local healer during medical time period”? Forgive me if this sounds silly.

[052]Coffee with Dakota: I’m Angry My Brother Died, How to Move Forward From Here.

I just lost my brother…well not so much lost as died. He had a heart attack and was gone in an instant. I thought that I would be seeking spirit but when I try and meditate what comes up is anger.

[050]Coffee with Dakota: How to Cope with Grief and Loss in a Shamanic Way

I am no longer taking RX drugs to deal with my anxiety but rather I choose to use marijuana as a coping mechanism and although it is natural and it does help, I would really prefer to deal with the remaining grief and anxiety naturally through mindfulness , meditation etc. I would appreciate any thoughts or advice you may have, thank you so very much. 

[049] Coffee with Dakota: What do the Colors of the Medicine Wheel Represent?

Hello Dakota, I have created sacred space in my backyard and I have made a small medicine wheel out of different colored stones. I found different and contradictory instructions for creating a wheel on the internet, especially where the colors of the directions were concerned.

[048]Coffee with Dakota: How Can I Clear My Soul of Grief?

I long to move forward in learning this work, and yet I am wiped out. Do you have any wise suggestions to help me clear my soul.

[047]Coffee with Dakota: I Want the Movie Reel When I Meditate!

When you have a deep knowing and awareness of your guides, spirits all around you, to the point that you can talk to them all question is, when I meditate, I have trouble “seeing” anything. What can I do to calm my mind enough to have the full potential of meditation?

[046]Coffee with Dakota: Tarot and Shamanism – Do They Fit?

When I first started my spiritual journey a few years ago it was a little chaotic, collecting books and information on all kinds of subjects. I settled into studying tarot and have been told, and have experienced, that I have the gift of reading tarot. Now I’m led to the shamanic path and would like to know if tarot reading fits in to shamanism?

[045]Coffee with Dakota: Will I Lose Everything? Imprinting Your Quantum Field So You Don’t.

Is there a way to know if I’ll get lucky and soon win money to help my situation? Will I lose everything? Is there anything I can do about it?

[044]Coffee with Dakota: I’ve Been Tortured since 1996!

How can I quickly overcome an issue which has been torturing me since 1996? How can I heal trauma that I’ve carried for a very long time? Is it possible?

[043]Coffee with Dakota: Living into My Calling

Today I share with you what it is like from my point of view to be working with people like you, to see the collective soul family returning to each other and to be a witness to the unfolding of such wise, old souls as they remember who they are.

[042]Coffee with Dakota: Did My Pain Kill my Son and Husband?

Am I responsible for the pain I passed down somewhat unconsciously that ended up killing my son and husband after sending them terrible negative perceptions of themselves for 30 years each?

[041]Coffee with Dakota: Connecting to our Ancestral Lineage

I have a question for you and would love to hear your thoughts: In the spiritual communities we speak about connecting with our past lives. Whilst I love to do that, we don’t seem to mention our ancestry. The reason I mention this is because recently I connected with my ancestors from many generations ago to discover more about their lives.

[040] Coffee with Dakota: Building a Medicine Wheel

What is my role in walking softly? Is it ok to use this land, is it trying to heal from something that happened before? I am drawn to the area. And I would like to think I can work with nature and not against.

[039] Coffee with Dakota: Why Can’t I Meditate??

I want to meditate but I can’t seem to quiet my mind and just be still. Thoughts are always racing through my head. I would love to know how to properly meditate and truly get something out of my meditation.

[038]Coffee with Dakota: What is Happiness?

Neither the world or people make you feel happy or unhappy, but your own thinking. So if we are truly looking for happiness we have to stop wasting our energy to change our bodies, places where we live, work, community, life style, personality. When we change all of those things we still might feel unhappy. False belief is that when our all needs and wants became fulfilled we will become happy- not true. All that wants and needs attachments do is make us feel tense, frustrated, loss of safety, nervous, stressed, anxious. What is happiness?

[037] Coffee with Dakota: Connecting with the Lineage of Your Past Lives

I have always felt a deep connection to your people. When I was child from 6 years I often cried in the morning when I realized I was in my bed in Denmark, because I had dreamt I was with my tribe. Can you see if it is so and what I should do about it? I think maybe there where something to help people in these new times there is difficult for many of my friends.

[036]Coffee with Dakota: I Am Wholeheartedly, Passionately Burning to Break Through

In prayer and meditation, I have felt the love of Spirit and have come so close to having that full-blown experience when you see the fireworks dancing in your third eye. I believe I have rejection and self-esteem issues from years of un-reciprocated love from humanity. I’m diligently working on breaking through, but could use some help getting rid of these blockages, truly becoming fulfilled in the moment, and fully trusting that I am, and I can.

[035] Coffee with Dakota: Walking the Path of Your Journey

I don’t have a question right now, but thank you for what you do & sharing. I’m looking forward to learning more as I start on my journey. Well, I think I’ve been on one all along, but am just now starting to realize it.

[034] Coffee with Dakota: Letting Go of the “Stuff”

How do we let go of the things that no longer serve us? How can we release the emotional baggage, habits, etc. and move forward?

[033] Coffee with Dakota: Releasing Energy through Meditation

How could I use meditation as a means to release old energies? Are there tools that will help me to release unwanted energies and free myself so that I can move on?

[032] Coffee with Dakota: Respecting the Traditions of Natives

Dear Dakota,
I am Anishinaabe (Ojibwe), German, Norwegian, & Dane and mostly identify as Anishinaabe. SOME “traditionals” that live on the reservation look down at other people practicing/mixing with other religious/spiritual beliefs. Unfortunately, the old traditional ceremonies aren’t being practiced. My dilemma is I want to practice traditional ways but all the respected spiritual leaders/healers have passed on and I don’t trust the ones that do call themselves “spiritual leaders.” Of all the meditations out there I have found your meditations to be the closet to my belief. What are your thoughts on practicing/mixing religious/spiritual beliefs?

[031] Coffee with Dakota: Deep Grief from Losing Your Twin Flame

My twin flame took his own life almost a year ago and I have tried to let him go after much grief and become peaceful regarding the situation. I’m just not sure how to love again after such devastation.

[030] Coffee with Dakota: Am I Shaman?

My friend recently started tapping into some Shamanic practices, and then I came across your guided shamanic meditations on YouTube. I’m so intrigued now and wondered if you would please tell me through your own words what shamanism is and how you help others through this form of practice?

[029]Coffee with Dakota: Help! I’m a jealous, compulsive boyfriend!

I am a jealous compulsive and having lots of problems with my girlfriend. How can I control and cure that behavior? Thank You for all the help! Blessings!

[028] Coffee with Dakota: Surrounded by Guides

This is a comment regarding your response to Fantasia’s question regarding experiencing our guides. During the video, your guides were swirling around you in the sunbeams shining through the trees…I could feel the upload of information coming in through your crown and up from the great Mother flowing out from your heart! Thank you for sharing your walk with the world.

[027]Coffee with Dakota: Creating the Perfect Meditation

I have a question: all the meditations and teachings: do you create them based on people’s needs? Or are they old meditations you learned yourself.  I’m basically interested in how  all that content is created. Thank you for bringing the additional resources of wisdom to my life.

[026] Coffee with Dakota: Am I Responsible for Someone Else’s Happiness?

Is it possible to practice compassion and empathy with others without feeling responsible for their happiness? Should we take on any responsibility? Where do we draw the line?

[025] Coffee with Dakota: Re-Igniting Your Soul Fire

What do you recommend to do for staying connected or spiritually focused when life is hectic and busy? I find myself slowly get disconnected from source and spirit as I get busier and busier until i yearn for even 5 minutes of meditation and connection. And when I do 9 times out of 10 I fall asleep. Also when I feel I get disconnected, I find it very hard to reconnect. Like I feel my soul fire burning low and not communicating spiritually. Can you recommend a few ways to get back on track and into the flow again?

[024] Coffee with Dakota: Am I Playing Too Small?

I am fifty years old. For the past twenty years, I have been exploring deeply in my Soul for how I may contribute to the world. I always felt that I would do something big to serve others, but in all my explorations and messages that I have received, it seems that I am meant to simply be an example to others by the way I live and to hold space. Because I have felt there was more that I could contribute, this leaves me feeling that I am playing small. How do I know if I am playing small?

[023] Coffee with Dakota: Handling the Twin Flame Energy

I would love to hear your perspective of Twin Flames right now…with the energies hitting the planet, etc. I am doing the work and feel I am in Union…although not in the most optimum arrangement. It is absolutely unconditional in both directions though 🙂

[022] Coffee with Dakota: How can I participate in Gaia Wisdom?

I would love to attend one of your weekend retreats , but unfortunately I live in Quebec Canada, Which is quite a distance for me to travel , but I am hoping you make it happen this year. My question is do you offer any workshops in Canada? I listen to your meditations on YouTube, and I truly love them.

[021] Coffee with Dakota: Deepening My Meditation Practice

How can I deepen my level of meditation? Will I be able to go into a hypnotic trance, or deep enough for Astral projection, or is that something entirely different?

[020] Coffee with Dakota: Do I have any Spirit Guides?

Is it possible that I don’t have any spirit guides? I have tried meditation to connect with them and feel like there is nothing there. I reach out and ask for their help but after several years of stressful/painful events I am left wondering if they exist in my life.

[019] Coffee with Dakota: Ego vs. Spirit

My question is how do you know the messages are true messages from your spirit guides or if they are from your own thoughts, feelings, or needs? Not sure how else to put this.  I have done many of your journeys and have a very lovely spirit mentorship going on but am not always sure about what messages I get.

[018] Coffee with Dakota: Following Your Passions

I would love to know more about how to move into empowerment and self-confidence to take the next step in life. My heart and soul cry, “Do it!” yet something holds me back each time. I am exploring what it might be like to nurture personal skills, the creative side and things of passion. There is associated fear around letting go of a salary job, and career path I have worked hard for, and to trust in my talents. I work in a government healthcare job but would love to embrace my passion for writing, and cooking- particularly exploring migrant culinary traditions, which in Australia are many! Not just as hobbies but as my life purpose.

[017] Coffee with Dakota: Healing Relationships on the Etheric Level

I am interested in working/healing relationships. What can someone do to heal/nurture a relationship in an ethereal level ? (especially when there seems to be a lack of communication on the physical level). How can we realize where we just mirror ourselves to other people, and we only see our projections? In this Coffee Session, Dakota talks about sacred relationships.

[016] Coffee with Dakota: Healing Emotional Pain

 have used (a.o.) your meditation of the medicine wheel to find the real source of emotional pains resurfacing in my life. I really managed to locate the sources in my very young childhood and was amazed by the result!
Knowing where the emotions come from is a big help and in a way, a relief but the emotional pains seem to show up again and again and by KNOWING the source the pains don’t leave me complete…
Now my question… Is there a way to really ‘dismantle’ the demons from the past and stop the emotions from returning? Thank you very much!! Have a wonderful day!!

[015] Coffee with Dakota: Telepathy with Animals and People

Hi Dakota,
Thank you for asking this question. The first thing that comes to my mind is to learn more about telepathic with animals or… This can also be spirits or people who passed away. To learn how I can be more in tune. How can I open this channel? I have been meditating for the last 20 years and had many telepathic connections with people. I would like to be able to have more easy access. I hope my English mistakes are not too big and you’re kind of able to understand my question.
Thank you and enjoy the moment shalom, May you be in peace with your in-and outside surroundings, Annelies

[014] Coffee with Dakota: Advice when it’s difficult to Meditate

I’ve been finding it very difficult/impossible to meditate. I’m unable to concentrate or silence my mind of wandering thoughts. I’ve never experienced this challenge before. I’m doing everything the same and I’m at a loss. I know now is the time that I’ll most benefit from meditation as I am waking up each morning in an anxious state. What advice do you have when it’s difficult to meditate?

[013] Coffee with Dakota: Knowing When to Go …

Relationships are difficult even when healthy and robust. So when do you know the proper time to leave? In today’s Coffee with Dakota session, Dakota talks about sacred relationships and how to know when to leave and choose yourself.

[012] Coffee with Dakota: How do I finally find my path?

If someone has asked, prayed, tried to listen and hear, for years and years, yet at the age of 60 still does not really know the path that is supposed to be hers/his — what then . . . how does one finally ever “get” it??

[011] Coffee with Dakota: How do we know we’ve met our Twin Flame?

Your twin flame is the counterpart to your soul, it’s the part of you that has been separated for many lifetimes and the reunion is powerful. How do you know when you’ve met your TF? In today’s Coffee with Dakota, you’ll find out …

[010] Coffee with Dakota: Why do we have a strong instinct to survive?

We are multi-dimensional beings with a strong will to live. Where does that instinct come from? In today’s Coffee with Dakota, we’ll explore that origin and how we can tap fully into it.

[009]Coffee with Dakota: Facing my Fears and Finding Messages in this Turmoil

My question would be how to become aware of the unseen assistance and guidance we receive during this tumultuous time of ascension? With the extremely high energies and confusion surrounding us, we often become oblivious to the assistance that we are receiving and constantly live our lives in fear and seemingly facing our fears alone, blocking ourselves to the signs of help that we receive daily and on a grander scale.

[008]Coffee with Dakota: Are you in a box much too small for the size of your spirit?

I have repeatedly taken shamanic courses from a woman who studied under Sandra Ingerman.  I think that I lack the self-confidence to practice these techniques in the wide world.  I guess my question to you would be, how do you help somebody increase their self-confidence and how would you encourage people to get out in the wide world and use their healing skills. How do you help someone understand that they have gifts, particularly the wounded healers?  And I guess the bigger question is how do you deal with the naysayers, the ones who tell you they don’t believe in anything you’re talking about and I think you’re full of crap?! Cindy

[007] Coffee with Dakota: Finding Purpose and Love

The 2 most important subjects I’d like to see you talking about and giving advice and hopefully, meditation are how we can achieve our dreams especially regarding career/business area, how to materialize them more easily and immediately, with less pain, suffering and without the long wait. The other very important subject it’s how to materialize/live the love relationship we desire with our true soulmate/ twin flame, how to meet the person, and have a commitment on both sides and engage in a wonderful, respectful loving happy relationship? In today’s coffee session, Dakota talks about the four houses of sacred purpose and how to manifest the sacred relationship with your twin flame.

[006]Coffee with Dakota: Why is Meditation so Popular?

Guided meditation is quite popular and with good reason. It’s benefits are enormous and meditation can be just the tool you need for reducing stress, finding connection, and more. In today’s coffee, Dakota answers a question about meditation and why it is so prevalent now in our time.

[005]Coffee with Dakota: Compassionate Communication

First, deep and humble THANKS for all the ways you helped my life partner when we were in your area last month. If I could ask you one question, it would be – how do you invite people, with whom you – in your gut disagree – in compassionate and potentially transforming discussion?
I send you all that is good.

[004]Coffee with Dakota: Dealing with Anxiety for me and my Daughter

Hi Dakota,
I think that I would have a lot of questions that are to do with how you started your own journey. But specifically for me… I think I would pick anxiety as a subject. Dealing with it. All kinds… separation, social, emotional. The whole area of anxiety would be something for myself and for my daughter also, very useful if there are ways to deal with it that enable us an easier time on our spiritual journey. Blessings and have a wonderful week.

[003]Coffee with Dakota: Shamanism, Spirit Guides and Nature

I would love to learn more about spirit guides; shamanism in general; ways to deepen my connection with nature/spirit, and the differences and similarities between meditation and shamanic journeying.

[002]Coffee with Dakota: Help! I’m a Control Freak!

Dear Dakota,
I am a control freak in my life and I wonder if there is something that I can possibly do for it. It would be great if there was a journey or meditation, that could help me relax and do not care about losing control of things in my life.

[001]Coffee with Dakota: Finding my Life Purpose

Hi Dakota,
“How did you know your life purpose and how did you get on the path of living up to it? What were some of your struggles along the way and how do you remain loyal to your higher path?”
Thank you,
