10 Jul Is the Healer in You?

Is the healer in you?  This is an important question for some of you.    Do you feel healing energy in your hands? Do you feel called to be a healer?   Some further questions might clarify this for you: Have you always felt keenly the suffering of others and the world?  Do you consider yourself to be deeply empathic?  Do you feel the presence of spirits? Do they sometimes seem to come to you for help or to give you guidance? Do friends, family and even strangers often ask for your advice, or launch into telling you their deepest secrets and darkest struggles? Do you sometimes seem to have a wisdom that is beyond your years or experience? Are you sensitive to energy? Do you notice a kind of power within you that sometimes seems to impact events in the outer world around you?  Can you see into the soul of others and sense the lifetimes they have lived? Does healing energy flow through your hands when you lay them on someone with caring intention? How long have you noticed these capacities and gifts? Since childhood? Or more recently? Have you been hit by lightning, had a near-death experience, or some other profound event which seemed to have opened up intuitive gifts and capacities? Do you feel a strong calling to help others and the world? Any one of these qualities might indicate that there is a healer in you.

30 Mar Your Heart is a Planet at the Center of the Wheel of Mother Life

"Did you know that your heart is a planet? It rests at the center of the Wheel of Mother Life--your life.  Dance in its medicine of oneness to the very center of your body, mind, soul and spirit.  When you do, you will  be amazed to find that you are interconnected with all beings, both seen and unseen, all the way up to the smallest star and down to the smallest grain of sand. Within that pulsing globe of love, all suffering dissolves.  All that remains is pure joy." This message came to me one morning I was dancing with my students in a beautiful Earth Wheel at Galleywinter Farm just outside Charlottesville, VA during the North Lodge.  We flowed in circles and back and forth from the outer ring of the Wheel to the center Grandmother and Grandfather stones.  As we moved, we connected with our own heart and, through sacred dance, song and drumming, activated the natural harmonic resonance of our collective heart. Then, as our bodies tingled and our heart centers hummed from the energy brought from Mother Earth and Father Sky by the dance, we sat down to do the Loving Heart Meditation.
