Ixchel Returns

Tamara Trejo

Tamara Trejo

On this Beltane moon we gathered at Jennifer Ball’s sacred meadow among the giant Redwoods in Butano Canyon. Upon arrival each woman created a prayer flag that we wove together as a symbol of our connection to the Mayan Medicine Moon Goddess Ixchel. Ixchell

Ixchel01During our traditional opening ceremony we chanted and gave blessing to four lovely ladies who chose to be born in the month of May. They reciprocated by giving us intricately cut sacred stones, fresh tulips, sleek little bags filled with treasures, a soulful song played on a wooden flute and showered us with rose petals. The richness of our circle was palpable.

Ixchel03Ixchel05Ixchel06Ixchel07

At twilight, when the veil between the worlds are thin, we moved our circle around the fire-pot. We sat on the ground to connect our bodies to the subtle vibration of Mother Earth and hear the whispers of Ixchel.

The Mayan prophecy is unfolding and we have all chose to be born as women in this shifting time. Softly and slowly our civilization is returning to the feminine ways of the Matriarch.

To connect even deeper with Ixchel and awaken the sleeping kundalini serpent, we settled into a chakra clearing meditation. Laying on our back with our head facing into the circle, we calmed our mind and one by one focused our attention on each of the seven chakaras.  Using our breath to open and clear any blocks, we embodied the healing power of Ixchel. After resting for a few moments in a heighten state of consciousness, we returned to a seated position. Passing the Mayan talking stick (a gift from a Tulum Mayan medicine woman) we took turns speaking our healing truth.Ixchel09Ixchel08

With the fire-pot blazing we returning to our feet to dance, sing and close our sacred circle.

We will gather again June 2nd to honor the Goddess Freya.  Hope you can join us.

Sincerely,

First Full Moon of 2015 on 1-5-15

On this first full moon of the new year, we gathered to honor the infinite Goddess that resides within each of us and our pure potentiality.

After opening ceremonies, we celebrated the woman who chose to be born in this darkest time of the year, Kellie Morlock. We offered her our love and blessings and received her beautiful song in return.mm1_5_15_02

We moved inside for a slide show and watched each Full Moon Ceremony of 2014. As the images floated by, we celebrated our year together, and then released it, creating space for the excellent (perfect) days to come.

Tammy led us in meditation as we created our most perfect day. We journaled and shared: some waking up in tropical locales, some in our own beds, some skipping around the globe. Inspiring and supporting each other as each most excellent day unfolded.

After our closing circle, we called down the moon as she crept up through the trees, sharing her Goddess light.

First full moon ceremony of Spring 2014

Enchanted April

 

La Nebbia Winery greets us with open arms—as dusk falls softly—under boughs of purple wisteria—reminding me of that line in Enchanted April: “To those who appreciate wisteria and sunshine”—We are here! Immense gift of ripe spring night. Our surroundings kiss us and we blush. Soft lush hills unfold in green waves—testament to the blessed recent rain. Fecund scent of earth fit to burst. Rambling roses pink and giddy. Somehow without having asked or feeling deserving I’ve arrived in a place so beautiful my body aches, breaks open—pastoral hush, sentimental rush

Sweet Leah places feathers in our hair—mine is blue with a tinge of yellow—sky with a streak of sun

I wonder who will take the largest electric blue feather—

Opening

We stand in a circle incanting our spirit ancestors.

With conch call and sacred words we bless each corner of the earth—north, east, south, west

We smudge and bless each other with fresh sage—I feel aura cleansed my every corpuscle smokes and releases up to the heavens

Lisa is an April baby—we circle round her, sing “Sha la ma, Sha la ma beta”—offer our blessings for her birth path—She gives us each a sea green rock—to cleanse and keep media at bay—giggling, we put the rocks in our bras, heart-close—to take out later by moonlight

Weave Dance

Holding hands, we make ourselves into two circles and knot ourselves up— “like a bridge over troubled waters”—winding serpentine and then unknotting—loosening—resurging into clean round whole

Our energy pours and merges; tumbles and surges—we are one knot; we are not other

Music plays gently on air—our bodies are songs without words

Circle time

Cool spring evening— the fire holds our warmth—around her core we sway

DSC_0216

Tammy teaches us, graceful and sure

Spring is here and with it comes a sense of urgency—gone are the dreamy dormant days of wintering. Now is the time for action, for manifesting ethereal—Can you feel it—dream seeds sprout real.

Our goddess this spring eve is Maat—Egyptian goddess of fairness—who, upon death

weighs our hearts against a feather, and if the feather is lighter we must

rebirth and try again to live Light

“Hold a feather in your left palm and your heart in your right—

Now weigh which is heavier”

Sage Tammy reminds us—

“Spit happens”—everyone has her share of troubled waters—but it is criminal to go through this life with a heavy heart—So you keep moving through, bending on—continuing to create

Recipe for a Light Heart

Cleanse—release past anger and wounds

Be grateful—this lightens your load

Laugh—hard to hold a heavy heart while laughing

We practice her preach—

Cleanse

Purge pain on paper then

Throw our regret into the fire and watch it burn

maat01

Grateful

Look our moon sisters in eyes and tell of what beauty we find in the looking

This giving and receiving is only of women born

“Was it hard to receive your praise?”

Consecrate gratitude on paper— place this close to breast

Laugh

Tell jokes (even though most of us admit to being terrible joke tellers)—two of us share the first jokes we ever heard—jokes from childhood, recalled—several of us share past moments of embarrassment; now able to relish our own foibles

maat04

How did I arrive here?

I am immensely blessed— not since college have I felt able to open within a group –bare souled—naked I-ed—without fear of judgment—cradled in love, light—encircled by creative-force women

We are a palimpsest of generations and stories

A patchwork godly vibrant and ever-flowing

Incantatory

“Earth my Body ~ Water my Blood ~ Air my Breath ~ and Fire my Spirit”

The sound stops, but I keep moving

“The temple bell stops, but the sound keeps coming out of the flowers”

Departure

The Moon hides from us as we wane—but her glowing can be seen over the tips of hills

By the time I reach seaside/home,

She is full—“bald and wild”—sitting in the crook of cypress—watching over my inspired newborn
