Yesterday's gathering was one of wonderment: so many who have been working with their medicine and regularly attending these gatherings/workshops are growing and opening up spiritually and receiving such great emotional support from the group.
I am happy to say I am one of these.
I do want to thank all of you for making all the work I do worthwhile. I love seeing the tears and hearing the laughter and I know all of this is Spirit's doing. We are making progress - we are learning how to become better healers- and we are learning it is OK- indeed part of our spiritual paths- to be vulnerable at times.
I must remind all of you that I listen to Spirit as to what each one in the group needs - that is part of my gift of being a psychic/medium. I am the vessel - I am not in the business of teaching American Indian ways, of passing on "secrets of Spirit" or of pretending to know more than I am told. I am here to guide, to learn, to offer a sacred safe place for those of you who are willing to listen and share.
I lay awake a long time last night, offering prayers up for each of you and knowing in my heart that I am doing what I am called to do. Thank you again for coming to the gatherings and workshops. Thank you for being a part of this group of wonderment and ever-deepening love for Spirit.
I do know that the group circle is going to grow with new people. We will be the ones who have paved the way, so to speak. We will be the ones to teach, to offer support, and to share what we have learned. This is by no means an easy journey. As you know, it gets harder and harder but more and more rewarding to our souls as we continue.
As we heal - an energy goes out into the world to help others do the same - to give them the courage to do as they are called - that is why the healing never ends - so many people are searching now - wanting to find a way to their Spiritual paths. THERE IS NO SHORTCUT TO DOING SPIRITUAL WORK! THERE IS NO ONE CERTAIN OR DIRECT WAY TO BYPASS WHAT NEEDS TO COME TO LIGHT AND HEAL. Hard work, acquiring knowledge, and paying attention is what it is all about. And being grateful. Being oh so very grateful. That is what constitutes a Spirit led life - or so I believe.

Fall in the Mountains

What a beautiful fall day today! The trees are showing off their colors and I am still thinking about our Healing Power of Colors Workshop this past Saturday. Thanks to all of you who attended!
Life is full this week with my teaching two creative writing workshops, attending Grandparents Day at Makayla and Emma's school, getting my information together to send in for my NC Poet Laureate nomination (the competition is tough but I am just happy to have been nominated!!) and cleaning the leaves off of my long driveway ... again and again and again.
This time of year always makes me think of change.... and change is a good thing.
We have to remember that once we accept ourselves as we are, we must get ready to change in some way again. And although sometimes change is scary, it is always a gift.
So, enjoy these beautiful days, smile at someone who usually pisses you off, and know that change is happening... here, there, and everywhere....

Yesterday's Gathering (Oct. 4, 2009)

Although we had a smaller than ususal group yesterday (several people out of town), the sharing was as powerful as ever. Thanks to everyone who attended. I appreciate all of you.
Here is my explanation of ceremony for those who could not attend:
"Ceremony, which in American Indian perspective is a necessary act to obtain or regain balance with the earth, is the highest form of giving back to the earth so that she can replenish her supply for humankind. The purpose of ceremony is to integrate: to unite one with all of humankind as well as the realm of the ancestors, to blend one with all of creation. This allows one to raise consciousness and shed the idea of individuality, of separation. Ceremony brings one into balance with all there is. Each ceremony has its own special purpose. Of course, the purposes vary from group to group, from nation to nation. Nevertheless, all ceremony brings one to the realization there is no separation from anything or any one, provides great illumination, and gives one perception of a cosmic relationship.
