Happy May Day~ to all.

Today I will hopefully have travelled to the lovely little town of Inverary as we will be mid way through our vacation in this beautiful setting of Scotland.

Above is the Castle on our list to visit today May Day, It is Kilchurn Castle where the Clan of Campbells held their ancient seats.  If you click Kilchurn Castle link it will take you to a short video and give you and idea of the surrounding beauty that Scotland has to offer.

 Today is also the day I entered this Earth Journey so for me May Day is of special importance.. If you would like to learn more about the origins of May Day, and the history behind it you can do so on a previous May Day Post..  HERE. 

These posts are scheduled and I hope you are enjoying the addition of the Story of the Vision Quest while I am on my break.. Comments will be moderated upon my return..

In the mean time take care of yourselves and see you all very soon.

Blessings Sue

 

Vision Quest 5 Energy.

The Beginning of this Story in all its parts can be found HERE

Looking through her closed lids a light that started as a spec grew rapidly before her. She knew she had her eyes closed, and yet the light grew brighter. Muna continued to breathe in deeper and deeper, all the while asking for the sacred ones to protect and help her on her inner journey of discovery.

All around the birds were chirping their merry chatter to one another, and still the light was there growing brighter. Deeper again she breathed in as the birds now started to fade into the background overtaken by a rushing sound which sounded like the rippling of water over stones flowing very fast.

But as Muna sat, she knew that this was not a sound at all, but it was the silence within her own being. The light now started to diminish and gradually receded back to the pinprick that it had started out as. She felt herself being sucked backwards and a new rushing sound overtook the silence, it was almost a buzzing sound, like that of a bee in the distance she felt her heartbeat and the blood pumping through her veins.

The buzzing sound grew louder, Muna knew this sensation it was the sensation she sometimes got when drifting off to sleep. Allowing the familiar sensation to sweep over her she felt herself being pulled backwards as if she was being dragged out from her body through the top of her head. She swayed backwards as she sat, and now the buzzing sound entered her whole being, as she felt the vibration of its beat enter her body, she allowed herself to be swept along with it she saw the Light once again.

Muna was pulled towards this light as if it was a magnet, she had no control as she floated towards the tunnel of light which now shone brighter than ever.  It glowed with a multitude of colours all colliding with one another mixing yet more colours as they met. A kaleidoscope of Light fragments all fused together forming a column in which she was now pulled into.

She felt the energy, the radiance of love that was emitted and she knew she was safe. If Muna could describe her feelings as she travelled through this column of light was to liken it to being surrounded by the guardians who held her in their beam of tranquillity and loving embrace.

Floating through the mists she sensed  she faced East. She breathed deeper still just enjoying the sensation of floating, as the ground seemed no longer solid beneath her. As she breathed in it was as if she breathed in the Spring Air with all the fragrant flowers her mind all at once seemed to clear as she blended with the beauty which now opened up around her.

Now as her vision cleared and the mists parted, no longer was she within the circle on her mountain side, but she was in a high walled garden with climbing clematis of many shades of blues, pinks and whites clinging to the walls which encased the garden on all four sides apart from one wooden door on the North facing wall..

The door was practically hidden with ivy, vines, and brambles. There were many plants in tubs along with herbs, hanging baskets too in strange objects such as old kettles and pans hung from hooks on the wall and what appeared to be an old bathtubs full of flowers. She had seen this garden before, but now it was in full bloom, more mature in every way..

What a beautiful strange garden she thought, and yet all seemed perfect. It matted not in what vessel the flowers were contained, for the beauty of the flowers showed themselves in perfection in all of these various containers…’Never judge’ she heard her own inner self saying, “It matters not what appears on the outside it is what is contained within that gives it beauty’..

How right these words were she thought as she saw the beauty of the flowers as they shone through the rusting old pans and pots.. She then saw a man tending to the plants, ragged in appearance and yet here viewing him she saw surrounding him a halo of gold light which moved with him where ever he went in his garden..

Muna saw the love pour forth upon his tended flowers, as she witness how they responded with their blooms of colour. And she understood why it was that some had greener fingers than others. As she saw the energy exchange of love  between the man and his plants.

So how is my Guitar playing Going?

This was what was delivered via the Universe.

This was what was delivered via the Universe. Full Story HERE

 

Hello dear friends..

I hope you are not too bored with the story of Muna upon her vision quest.. So as another little interlude Between Muna’s Story while I am absent on my scheduled posts. So  I thought I would let you know how I am doing on my guitar  lessons..

Well my fingers on my fret hand are still sore, in fact they are becoming numb as the skin hardens on the end of my finger tips. I still practice daily.

And have learnt a lot of new chords.. Now any would be guitarist out there will know that stretching your hands to get certain chords may be ok if you started when your hands were quite supple.. 

While my hands are nimble to do my knitting :-)  the stretch in them is not as great ,but I am managing. Slowly but surely I am progressing.. One step at a time. But who invented that  dreaded F chord?? LOL :-)

So now I have a few chords under my belt I have also now started to learn a few finger picking tunes.. And I took several online courses and learnt this tune.. Which I can play ok.. with a few pauses between chord changes at times.. but I am proud of what I have learnt so far..

The Sky is the limit and the only limits are what we set ourselves…

Lets face it.. I only have the rest of my life to perfect my guitar skills :-)

So here is a video clip of the Sequence I have learnt.. No not me… Not Yet!! haha

Sending you Blessings your way..

Thank you for your continued support

More of Muna’s Quest tomorrow.

And I will be moderating comments upon my return..

 

Vision Quest 4~ The Four Directions

You can follow the beginning  of the Vision Quest in small Parts which start  HERE

Muna enters her Medicine Wheel and speaks to the Four Directions as she requests help with her Vision Quest from her ancestors

 

The Four Directions Continued:

Muna spoke in a calm clear voice, as she entered her circle from the east setting her mind with her intention she stood within the middle of it.

“I welcome you Great Spirit, Earth Mother, and Powers of the Four Directions… I welcome my ancestors and all who love me..I ask that you grant me a vision, help me to shed all that I no longer need, Help me understand my true self, help me chase away the shadows”..

Muna then lit the candle which she had secured in the earth, it flickered in the breeze, she blew hard again upon the sage and made more smoke encircle around herself.

She closed her eyes for a few moments and breathed deep asking within her mind for the vision to commence as she stood within the cocoon of energy she had created for herself. Muna mentally asked the living Spirits in nature to come and bring their energy to help her in her Quest. Opening her eyes she faced the larger stone on the compass point of the East which was dedicated to Air, which signified spring, a gateway to the mental plane. Muna offered her sacred prayer bowing in acknowledgement and asked for her inner knowledge to be released.

“Open the gate of the East that I may share your energy, renew my spirit within your breath of Spring, clear the cobwebs of my thoughts so that I can see clearly from my heart”

She then turned to the South which represented summer, emotions and water, as she thought of the days at the lakeside with her friend, she acknowledged the South with a nod of her head in a reverent bow.

“Oh great South the land of the Sun, where no bird needs a map to guide them to the warmth, for you guide them back home. Guide me on my journey, help me see my own path, help me conquer my fears, let me lay them to rest. Help me see the journey before me and those who will help me fulfil my destiny.”

Next she turned to the West, the Fire of Autumn and blessed the spiritual realm for coming, asking for illumination.

“Great Fire of the West, allow your flame to blend with that of my candle, illuminate the darkness with your cleansing flame. Allow your flame to burst the seeds of knowledge, I ask that my ancestors come and bring their wisdom to help me upon this Quest” As Muna finished speaking the breeze picked up flickering her candle flame before the flame settled and grew even stronger in height.

The last stone she turned to was the North, The Earth stone representing winter the Physical Body and Wisdom. Sending once again her thoughts out she now sat down at the centre with her Dream-catcher, Sage, Locket, and Candle appearing like a little altar in front of her within her Medicine Wheel.

“I call upon the North, let your winds sweep away the mists that I fear so.. Let them cover the land bringing the flakes of cleansing snow to protect the land, so that the small creatures can feel the warm of its blanket. Let it bring the much-needed water to the lakes, and trees. I ask that you bring me the wisdom that will help me be stronger to face the storms in life help me trust my heart”

Sitting with legs now crossed, taking a deep breath, Muna closed her eyes and once again asked for a blessing around the circle. Breathing in deeply allowing herself to relax and go deeper within each breath. Muna breathed in she felt the energies spiralling from the middle of her circle, she felt her head spinning along with them.

The earth beneath her seemed to vibrate as the land of Day and Dreams merged in one as Muna was swept into her Vision Quest.

Vision Quest part 3

To continue the story of Muna, who was having recurring nightmares, her Grandmother Aponi had suggested she go off on a Vision Quest to confront her Demons. Aponi had taught Muna the Ancient ways of her tribe and so Muna had set off up into the mountains for her Vision Quest.

Parts One and Two can be found HERE

The story continues:

The Ceremony Begins. 

Aponi had taught Muna well, saying the Medicine Wheel was a physical representation of the sacred circle that encompassed all life., that it had outer manifestation and inner force.  On a deeper level it represented the Universe and all matter that which was animate and inanimate. It represented Life, Death and rebirth,  she told Muna she must separate the circle into four segments, each segment represented the elements, Fire, Air, Water and Earth. And each were represented by the Four Directions of the compass.

So Muna set off in search of some stones she took well over an hour searching and feeling the energy of the stones and placed them in a large circle and divided the centre into four segments, next she opened up her bag and took out some of the things she had hurriedly packed at dawn.

She brought out a bundle of Sage, a lighter some tobacco, and a small white candle. Muna also had a locket which was her prized possession she unwrapped carefully from the coloured silk kerchief which she always kept it in.  Lovingly she places this within the circle. She took out a small jar which held some cornmeal and sprinkled some in the circle symbolising protection and abundance. Lastly was her Dream-catcher which she placed beside the medicine wheel.

Muna looked around at the flowers, wondering if she should pick some to place within the circle too.. But she knew the moment she picked them, their life would be extinguished, so Muna silently sent up a prayer offering instead the beauty of the mountain flowers all around her and offered the circle her tobacco which is sacred to the Great Spirit, saying “Grandfather sky and Grandmother Earth, protect my sacred circle with love, that I may find my answers”.

She now looked around her at the beauty of Mother earth as she looked high into the blue sky, and saw the glint of the sun on the lake far below.. The Vision Quest was about to start.

“Make this your ritual Muna, go with your own instincts I have told you how, but you follow your own guidance and thoughts, this is your ceremony” Aponi had said as Muna had packed her bag that morning. She now lit the sage bundle and blew on it until the embers glowed red, she took the sage bundle and moved it around her head and over her body, smudging herself and allowing the smoke to flow around and about her body. Muna felt the urge to hum, and started to sing one of the songs she often heard Aponi singing, She smiled to the sky and she offered her love to the Earth, and placed the cornmeal and the tobacco in the centre of the circle sprinkling more, still smudging herself and her circle. “Be sure to sing out loud and speak out so that the Spirit People can hear you” Aponi had said.. “ you need to wake them up, tell them how beautiful they are and wait and sense them Muna, you will sense their presence.”.
