Sky Phenomenon

Each time my oldest daughter and I go somewhere together, just the two of us,  something magical happens.   This almost-four-year old is a magical creator and I’m grateful to her for pointing things out to me that I normall wouldn’t see.

Several weeks ago we were on a “date” of sorts – just the two of us, driving along toward the ice cream shop.

“Look Mommy!” she exclaimed, as she pointed out the window.

What I saw was something I had never before seen in my life, but had heard about only a couple of weeks before.  It was a rainbow, but not really.  It was a horizontal “rainbow” in the sky – thick in the middle, with only three colors: pink, yellow, and blue/green.  The “rainbow” sort of just ended in a cloud. 

As I drove I marveled at this site and remembered a friend telling me that she had seen a similar thing at the beach only weeks before.  This was exactly what she described.

Later, a friend pointed me toward this site which explained what it was that we saw.  A circumhorizon arc.

Very very cool!  When we got to the ice cream place it was gone.  I looked at it out my window until we reached our destination.  As soon as we got out of our car it had disappeared.

Testing My Creative Powers

Tonight as I spoke to Grandmother Tree she told me it would be safe to share and document.

I have spent the last two months testing my powers so to speak.  Some of it was deliberate, some of it I did on a subconscious level.  A word of warning to those of you testing yours.  Be very very careful in your intent and in your words and thoughts.

I had had a spirit baby surrounding me for many months.  I have a friend who is very in tune to spirit babies and thought perhaps I had one.  This was during the Spring.   I assured her that I did NOT have a spirit baby around me, that my husband and I were absolutely positively finished having children, that we felt blessed to have the two daughters that we have and that that was emphatically THAT.

I didn’t even really speak to this spirit baby but I felt him around me.

Then one day my husband and I had a moment.  I know how silly that may sound.  In this moment I thought, well, if it’s meant to be, it will be.  And so it was.

At 41, and 46 respectively, hubby and I were not prepared to have another baby.  There are many many reasons why and those of you reading who know our history with our second daughter will empathize.  No.  We could not handle another baby in this family.

I spent a week trying to convince myself that this was good.  I spent a week listening to all the preconceived rules I’ve learned; rules such as “you’ve made your bed, now lie in it.”  Rules like, “Suck it up, be stoic.”  Rules that Story Waters says are not necessary.

I had a healing arts class the next weekend and we worked w/toning and sound therapy. It was my turn to be in the middle of our healing circle and when the toning/sound was over I had an epiphany and a breakdown.  I did not want to birth this baby.  I was testing my abilities.  Unconsciously.

I set out on some guided imagery with the help of my shaman/teacher and released this spirit with Love back to Source.  I saw one of my (new) guides come and take this spirit and they both assured me that all was well.

What this spirit wanted from me was acknowledgement and love.  That’s all. 

I have already learned many lessons from this spirit and it has only been 5 weeks since the day I allowed him in.  Lessons I may write about another time.  For now, though, these lessons are all about one thing, and one thing only.

Grandmother Tree Speaks

I discovered this giant oak tree several months ago while riding my bike on an old and overgrown golf course site.

 I was drawn to her immediately.  I know this tree is female and has the energy of grandmothers throughout the lifetimes.

Majestic, stoic, encompassing, wise, sheltering, open, this tree is the embodiement of love.  Every time I go to this tree I get a message and am overwhelmed with love and emotion.

I went tonight.  I needed to.

Tonight I went to ask for a message.  It was a message of love.  What else would it have been?

Grandmother tree told me that there are so many expressions of love that they are as different but as similar as all the branches of her.  Different, but the same.

These messages I get are often so very simple, yet are profoundly powerful when I receive them.  This was no exception.

Here’s a quote from Shakti Woman, Feeling Our Fire, Healing Our World by Vicki Noble that perfectly describes why I have not posted here in a while.

“The more a person practices and develops shamanic healing, the less can be said about it in precise, rational, linear ways. The experiences are so direct and often so profound that to translate them into words and concepts takes an extra mental effort – a step of mediation that has to be inserted in between the experience and one’s communications of it. The English language, and the Western mode of communication, work against the expression of shamanic truths by virtue of what they have left out of the picture.”

Can I ever relate to that. I often wonder if I should abandon this blog, (and I haven’t even made posts yet about the really interesting stuff!) because it sometimes feels so inadequate a description of things; somehow trite or silly even.

I am interested in sharing some of my womb whisperings and will soon be making this an income-producing, regular practice.

I’ll post more about it when the time is right.

I’d also love to talk some about astrology.

More Doves

Now, I know that pigeons and doves are closely related. I also know what they each look like.

I feel the need to say that because while my life has been pretty magical lately, even I sometimes am astounded.

Today I was pulling into a parking lot taking my girls to swim lessons and two cars down were two doves. Not pigeons. Doves. Just sitting as still as they could be looking at me.

It was I who noticed them this time. I pointed them out to my girls, but they were clearly there for me. They watched us get out of the truck and walk away, never even moving.

They are beautiful birds with clear, knowing eyes.

Dove/Pigeon’s Wisdom Includes:

  • Brings peace and love

  • Understanding of gentleness

  • Spirit messenger

  • Communicates between the two worlds

I’m feeling the need to give my other grandmother some credit today.  My father’s mother is the grandmother I spoke of in an earlier post, the one who spoke to animals.  She had many other mystical qualities too, but mostly she was an Earth mother.  She was very much connected to the Earth and its inhabitants.

My mother’s mother on the other hand was very “airy.”  She was an Aquarius.  She was also a nurse.  She finished nursing school in the 1930s when there really weren’t that many women in colleges at all.

She was a healer.  She worked in a hospital for a little while but mostly she made house calls.  When I was a child I went with her on some of these calls and many of them did not involve traditional nursing practices at all.  Sometimes it only involved Love.  Do you understand what I mean?  Sometimes these people only needed my grandmother’s love.

That is what healing is really all about.

My teacher says that sometimes the people who come to her only need to be touched.  That is the healing for them.

Several months ago I decided that my new field of study would be LOVE.

And here I am.

Thanks grandma GG and grandma T. 🙂

A Shaman’s Feathers

The first time I saw my teacher take out her feather fan, I gasped.  My heart sang and danced.  Just seeing them had an instantaneous and profound affect on me.  They were beautiful.

She wouldn’t let us touch them.

This weekend I found out that they were given to her when the Native People initiated her as a Shaman.

My question was answered.
