On a warm and glorious evening, 15 Moon Mothers gathered among the redwoods in Butano Canyon for the Flower Moon of May, second full moon of Spring. Honoring the goddess Ixchell, medicine woman, midwife & weaver with a serpent crown. We laid on the earth for a guided meditation for opening our chakras to allow the kundalini “serpent” to flow through our bodies.
Upon arrival, we each created a prayer flag with words of wisdom and empowerment. We then wove the flags onto a line, braiding shiny beads in with them. The ritual proceeded with our honoring the seven directions, calling in those who could not be present, clearing the energy with sage, and celebrating the lovely women chosen to be born in May. They each presented us with flowers after receiving their blessings from the group.
As we then connected with Mother Earth and opened our chakras in our group meditation while reclining on the grass, reveling in the beautiful evening that massaged us with her twilight glory. We shared our insights and strengths during circle speak, empowering ourselves and each other with wisdom and love. After standing in a close-knit circle around the fire to close the ritual, we communed over goodies brought to share and the great company brought to life in the moon’s abundant glow.
Blessings and gratitude,
By Kellie Morlock
