A Journey from 07.14.2010
I finished my yoga then put Brooke Medicine Eagle’s cd in and danced to a couple of songs. I stayed in the moment really feeling the energy of the deep yoga breathing and the flow of the music around and inside me. I burned some sage and honored the four directions--north, south, east and west==and the above, below and within. I asked Spirit, and my angels and my guides to accompany me during my journey. I put in my drumming cd:
Almost immediately I was at my sacred spot. I moved in a circle and looked all around me. I really saw the jagged canyon, the plateaus of high desert grass, and the colorful wildflowers growing in the most unlikely places. I was drawn to Boulder and sat on his warm surface. “We've been here before,” Boulder reminded me. “Many, many years ago.” I was transported to the lifetime he referred to.
I killed the mammoth without hesitation, without thought because my family had to eat. I saw myself, at the point of kill, giving thanks to Mammoth and his Spirit as he took his last breath. I was honored by his sacrifice. “Go, “ Boulder said, “and take my energy with you.”
I walked along the path and spotted Raven and Crow, perched together on another large stone in a tall cliffside. The gifts of mystery and prophecy are what we offer you, they said. I could see. I could feel. But there was so much still for me to learn.
As I turned to walk further, Bear appeared. “Climb on,” he said and I did and we flew up and beyond to the top of the waterfall. I hugged Bear and gazed into his eyes. “Love and compassion and family ties you draw from me. Use this power wisely.”
As a breeze blew around me I saw a man drawing closer. He had black, long dark hair and a colorful headdress. I was mesmerized and felt a bond, though I’d never seen him before. I did not know what he wanted but I did know it would be something I needed. Love, guidance, hope, awareness.
Suddenly a myriad of butterflies were dancing all around me. I felt such love and acceptance. It was a great journey.
