We did the work… “It’s by honoring and naming each of our parts, that we become a new whole. Seen B. Frost

 

We went beyond…

Goddess Ixchel ~ Medicine Woman

The ancient Maya believed in many Gods, but only one Goddess, Ixchel;  Medicine woman, sage, and weaver.  She presides over child-birth, wounded warriors, and the ill.  She is depicted as a Crone, to symbolize wisdom. Her crown is a snake coiled on her head, symbolic of new life and awakened kundalini. There seems to be a little Hindu belief in this mythology, hence she is a weaver.  Ixchel, carries a large satchel over one shoulder and a walking stick in her other hand.  The large satchel symbolized strength and healing remedies, the walking stick, a symbol of her earth travels.

All women of our Moon Mothers tribe, possess a unique healing gift.  Some heal by way of traditional and herbal medicine. Some heal, via Reiki, humor, song, compassionate listening, and giving sage advice.

Ixchel, reminds us that Mother Earth provides us all with free medicine. Mother Earth gives us an abundant supply of the obvious, herbs, food, and water, to keep us healthy and heal our ailments.  There’s also, that not so obvious, health-giving gift she constantly provides. It’s her subtly restorative vibration.  Her rhythmic heartbeat, aligns us into flowing health. We need only to connect, to feel her therapeutic resonance.

As we Navigate todays modern society, it’s so easy to become disconnected from Mother Earth’s perfect healing pulsation.  As we walk through this world wearing shoes and spending a lot of time in buildings, we become disconnected from her health-giving frequency.

On this full moon we invoked the spirit of Ixchel.  We Moon Mothers created prayer flags, for planetary healing and wove them together in honor of the weaving, healing Goddess, Ixchel. In the mystical meadow surrounded by ancient Redwood trees we laid on our backs and connected to the heart beat of Mother Earth.  Through a guided  meditation, we moved into our imaginal mind to clear our chakras so that our kundalini serpent could rise to our crowns.

With new clarity, awakened kundalini and a deep connection to Mother Earth, each women spoke of her innate healing gifts.

Thank you Mary Baxter for providing turkey dinner,  Thank you Jennifer Gray for hosting us at your sacred home.  Thank you Erica Crawford for excellent photography.

Below is a visual glimpse into our sacred circle.

Vernal Equinox

The whispers of our ancestors called us to honor this natural holiday. On this day of transition, from Winter to Spring we gathered on the mountain top, to step through the portal of a new season. equinox12

When women gather in circle to honor themselves, their ancestors and the season, inexplicable magic happens.

I honor and thank all you beautiful women, for taking the day off from work. For Driving over the City bridge (during rush hour traffic) and winding country roads to arrive on time. This was truly a day of connection to all matters of heart and soul.

2017 Pure Potentiality

On the first full moon of 2017, our nomadic tribe gathered at J7 Studios, in Moss Beach

In this hip sound recording studio, young Karianne Burns, play the angelic harp as the ladies arrived.  The intention for this gathering was to envision our abundant new year and look back at our strong circles from last year.

In 2016, we all had our personal ups and downs, but in our Moon Mothers circles, we were strong and vibrant.  Every full moon we gathered to embody the power of a different Goddess archetype and connected to our true soul essence.

The slide-show below, titled,  2016 Moon Mothers Circles, was set to music and projected 100 times larger than it shows on this blog.  Through this show we deepened our connection as a tribe and recalled our joyful gatherings.

Cozy on the floor we began our New Year Manifestation meditation.

pure-potiential02

The musical notes from Karianne’s harp seemed to resonate with the frequency of each chakra as we cleared any blocks in our energy centers.  With our chakras balanced and clear we began our meditative journey into one of the most magnificent years of our lives.  In our minds eye we moved through the seasons with a strong body and felt the vital energy of physical movement. Mused for a moment on a new study commitment and felt the satisfaction of learning and teaching. Our bodies were still one the floor but our minds went on a journey to a new place on earth and we felt the freedom of unencumbered travel.  Reaffirming that our work in this word is important and money flows to us easily: we turned our attention to our home sanctuary that was uncluttered and beautiful. With sincere appreciation for the kindhearted people in our life we sent them love and gratitude.

Our Manifestation Meditation was not about the things we would obtain this year.  It was about our way of being in the world, self-care, learning, teaching, speaking our truth and gratitude for the people in our life.
