I have been quite busy and so that is why there have been no posts. However, I fully intend to keep up with this as it has become known to me how important reading this is for some.
So we go.
I have completed my Reiki Masterhood. I did this in April. I am very proud of this fact and proud to have done my Reiki studies at the NY Open Center with Joanna Crespo of Reiki Rhapsody. I studied Reiki for an entire year, not a weekend as many have done. I am very proud of this and feel that the complete work I did including work with Family Constellations, Kundalini Yoga and Music, Sound and Meditation really pushed me to a new place as both a woman and a Shaman.
I have been saying more and more I am a Shaman. I am…that I am.
Doing a lot of I AM Work as well! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnE4haISNBc
I find it easy for many to associate Wicca as a Northern European Shamanic Tradition called Witchcraft and what Witchcraft is. That is for another post though.
Meanwhile I am now blessedly on a Scholarship with the NY Open Centers Sound and Music Institute. This is a year long study into using Sound and Music to heal….and to me to do magick as well as bring these techniques into my music work.
I will be doing a ritual this Yule with several wonderful people in the NYC Pagan scene using the techniques I have learned in these classes! Can’t wait.
I have also discovered the voice of our Mother Earth.
Hope you enjoy her song.
It really was.
If you don’t know who Christopher Penczak is you must visit his website: http://christopherpenczak.com/
He has written tons of books….and articles and produces his own magical music, meditations and teaches both in seminar and on line forums! Wow!
I’d say hes a genius. He has so much knowledge for a young man. His energy is huge as is his heart.
I went to the seminar because a friend of mine who was associated with The Order of the World Tree: http://owt.sacredwheel.org/ told me I HAD to go. Christopher was going to be speaking about Plant Familiars and teaching on how to find yours. Well, after all the study of medicinal herbalism in the past two years I felt it was time to reacquaint myself with my occult side!
Boy did I ever!
We were taught about different categories of herbs and plants. Christopher likes to divide them into three. Balms for healing, Banes for Hexing and Pathworking and Tree Teachers.
We were taken though meditations to places under the world tree where the Green Man and the Lady of Flowers took us to our plants and were able to talk to them.
I got to meet my Bane, Poison Ivy first. A jaunty and funny little plant with a dangerous looking berry. I had never seen a Poison Ivy berry but there it was….talking to me and telling me about its uses for me both medicinally and magically. I have to gather it, wish me luck. Perhaps it won’t harm me! There was a glorious visit with Angelica and a vision of myself both past, present and future shown to me by Fir Tree.
I was transformed to say the least.
The second day was about two distinct and powerful workings. The Green Devil Meditation and the then the White Herb.
We were exposed to Flower and Plant Essences of both baneful and balmful herbs! I was transported. Seriously.
I was also healed in ways I didn’t know I needed to be.
Thank you so much MR PENCZAK. I can’t wait to learn from you again. IN Fact I intend to read every single book he has written!
I hope you join me. You can find his work on his website and also at Amazon. He is on Facebook as well as MySpace.
Support this man!~ I know I will.
Bright blessings my dear ones.
