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.”.

Vision Quest 2~ Short Story

 Well here is another episode of the Vision Quest.. There will be a few more until the outcome of the Vision Quest is revealed to Muna.. For those here for the first time the first part of this story can be found HERE. 

Medicine-Wheel-2.jpg

As the dawn broke and the memory of the shadow within her dream still haunted her waking,  she decided to do as Aponi had suggested and go out on her vision quest. Aponi had long since told her how. But Muna had thought the dreams would go, but the fear inside was something Muna couldn’t quell, she needed to confront her dreamtime and find out what the Great Spirit had to say.

Muna packed a few supplies in a rucksack and said her farewells to her grandmother who nodded approvingly at the door as she made her way to a sacred spot high upon the mountain side. It took Muna several hours to walk the distance to the spot she knew and loved so well.

“Now pick your spot well Muna”, her grandmothers words came back as she strode purposely to the place on the mountain she had in her mind.  “You must be sure it’s the right spot for you Muna, Ceremony and Rituals are all important and many mark the rites of passage”, Aponi had explained how Ceremony allows for a deeper understanding between human nature and the Divine realms, which are inner enactments of Spiritual voyages.

The method Aponi had taught Muna was the Sacred Circle. She had told Muna to go about and build her circle by finding stones or twigs and place them in a circle in which to sit during a vision retreat within one’s self, her words echoed yet again.

“When you enter your circle, you are entering a place of sacred prayer it is a place of peace and calm it is Tuwanasaapi which means a place of belonging, your true home. The medicine wheel is the point you create to make a passage from the visible to the invisible realms, and Muna it is the place where one opens ones heart, where one unmasks the true self, it is the place of thankfulness and where one can reach out to the stars. The medicine wheel is a place where you build your own power within the sanctuary of spinning energy you alone can create this Muna. For only you can connect to your heart where all knowledge is kept, it is time you unlocked its secrets that you have buried so deep. You will feel the light and the sound of it, as it helps you shed off your old self as it renews your spirit with purified love. Set your intention Muna,  cast off your shadows and embrace the love within.”

So Muna found herself a grassy spot after much searching, one that felt just right that overlooked a wonderful view of the lake in the valley below. Here the trees were more sparse and the fear of the shadow seemed now to dim in the light of the wonderful morning light as it spilled its warmth over the valley, showing the many grasses and the meadow flowers as they gently nodded their heads in unison in the gently mountain breeze.

She took a drink of water from her rucksack and her stomach cried out in response as she had not eaten that morning…But she needed to fast, and took note on how much water she had, for her vision Quest could last all day.. if not longer. She was ready to begin.

Vision Quest! ~ Short Story 1

A series of  synchronicities has led me to edit and post part of a fictitious story of a vision quest I wrote some years ago now.. The first of these synchronicities were when Nihar and I got into a conversation about writing fiction over at his blog at Makeup & Breakup

The title of one of my chapters that I had been thinking about to post was entitled Vision Quest.. So imagine my surprise to visit not one but two different fellow bloggers who had both posted upon Vision Quests.. The first one being Maria Wind Talker’s Post  Spring Equinox pilgrimage.

The Third prompt from the Universe came from Jamie’s post entitled Vision Seed Fishing at the Dark of the Moon which spoke of Vision Quests. So you know how I respond to the Signs the Universe brings to me.. So below is the first part of that writing if you enjoy it I will post subsequent episodes in the near future.

Vision Quest! The Nightmare..

“You need to confront your fears Muna”, Aponi said as again she had come into Muna’s room to calm her cries as another nightmare had broken the silence of sleep.

“I’ve told you what to do, it’s up to you now to go and do it, and ask the Great Spirit for your answers”.

Muna was sat up now in bed hugging her knees, the tear stains now drying upon her cheeks as once again her nightmare terrors had overtaken her.

This time Muna had seen herself in the Forest again, knowing she was being watched with that familiar feeling she always got in her dreams.  But this time instead of being able to run, she found herself rooted to the spot. She had watched her feet as she had willed herself to run.. ‘Run’ she had repeated in her head ‘Run’… over and over as she looked over her shoulder to the shadows that crept ever nearer in her dream. But her feet were stuck fast, she had watched them sinking within the earth. Pools of water seeped up around them making a bog, sucking her down she was being engulfed in water as it slowly crept up her calves anchoring her to the spot.

Terrified she was going to drown and trying with all her might to free herself, the harder she struggled the quicker she was sinking. All the time the Shadow from the Woods drew closer and closer as the daylight failed. Colder and colder she became shivering from cold and fear as those strange mists came up from the forest floor behind the trees.

She heard the screech of the Night owl and heard the beat of its wings as it took off from its night perch. Muna’s heart beat faster, as she looked around in all directions as she knew the Night owl had come for her, and there was no escape so she closed her eyes as the owl got closer, she heard another screeching sound so loud it echoed within her head.

Muna found herself sitting bolt upright in her bed her arms flaying around in all directions as if she was defending herself as she fought off the owl of her dreams.

Aponi was now sat as she had so often done in the past when Muna was smaller on the edge of her bed, she understood much, but said little. She had helped Muna understand her dreams and had try to teach her not to fear them, But to embrace them as they held much wisdom if one cared to look deep within them.

But Muna couldn’t shake the fear of the Shadow, even though Muna was now no longer a child but a young woman in her teens. Aponi had told her several weeks ago that she needed to go within to find her own answers and she must go on a Vision Quest and seek the answers to her nightmares. And so once again Aponi spoke to Muna saying.

“Only you can confront your fears Muna for only you give them life”.

The Universe Listens

I wonder how many of us over the years dismiss the ‘Signs’ the Universe throws in front of us.. Over the years I have got a lot better at ‘Seeing’, and yet sometimes we still keep ignoring what we are being shown..

I have also learnt that nothing is by ‘chance’ that there is a reason behind all things.. Many of us I know can be thinking of someone and they then can get in touch. Recently this was taken a stage further as my husband and I had been discussing old friends in our lives.

Around a week later both of us while in town together bumped into old work colleagues.. Two of them were my Husbands old friends and one was mine.. Neither of us had seen them for years and yet there we had been talking about them just a week before. The Universe Listens!..

Waiting for the Breeze to carry us along

Waiting for the Breeze to carry the seeds of our thoughts along 

Our thoughts are being sent out constantly as vibrations, so too had my own thoughts been going over and over recalling something that I had had in my grasp long ago but had let it slip through my young fingers.

This post follows on  from how the Universe Speaks  and this all stems from my original post of Reconnecting with my Creative Self~ Part 1   Posted at the beginning of February When I took time out to Listen to the Silence

The Story Continues 

The woman spent her quiet time remembering her childhood memories, as she wrapped the yarn over her clicking needles , in—over—threw—off!

A smile curled around her lips as she fondly brought back the memory of her Grandmother, how she had taught her to knit. She saw coloured hanks of wool hung over the back of chairs as the woman saw her own young hands clumsily wound it into many balls of yarn.. Often dropping one as she wound it, she would chase it under the table as the ripple of laughter echoed in her Grandmother’s house.

She could smell the tobacco of her Grandfather’s pipe mingled with that of the block of green soap that was always in the scullery so often full of grit as her Granddad washed his sandy hands from the garden as he brought in the vegetables for dinner.

She loved her school holidays spent within their home. Here she felt at peace.. A peaceful sigh escaped her lips. 

Emotions are like rivers they follow their course

Emotions are like rivers they follow their course

Another thought jumped into view one of running down hills and jumping brooks, climbing trees for conkers and gathering hazelnuts. Scrambling through the shale sliding down the side of a small dale collecting posies of Lily of the Valley to take home for her Mother.  The scent whenever she smelt its perfume took her back to her childhood days of cowslips and primroses growing wild in the valley she loved so much. 

Wild Primrose

Wild Primrose~ Beauty in every step  should we care to look where we tread 

The woman’s thoughts took her back to age 11 and one Christmas… It seemed that at last this was her best Christmas ever.. For it seemed for once what she had asked for had been granted, her mind held the fondness of that memory and the Universe was listening to her thoughts..

The woman continued along her daily routines, but the fondness of that thought she had held while clicking needles popped up again and again.. Everywhere she turned it seemed the Universe was showing her that very same Christmas present..

She lingered long over it’s appearance and even commented to others.. Here it is again!.. And still she did not see…

Blackbird Song

Our roots and Dreams remain hidden beneath the surface, as we cut them down with our excuses.  

The woman’s Night time Dreams often dwelt within past events,  clear yet confused vivid and colourful, merging those who had pasted long ago with those who were still in the present. 

Ducks Feeding

 Emotions~ Water will keep on rising unless we stem the flow 

And in all of them she was searching for something she had lost. Synchronisties the woman was well aware of, and she would wake often during the small hours of the morning to see the repeated symbols in triplicate as the Universe spoke to her showing her repeatedly 333  on the hours of the clock. 

Sitting within the silence ~ Rockery flowers that have never stopped blooming all winter in my Garden.

Sitting within the silence ~ Rockery flowers that have never stopped blooming all winter in my Garden. We should never let go of our Dreams.. 

 

The woman promises in her next post she will reveal what this all means.. And show you the proof that the Universe works with us, and not only listens to us, but delivers that which we need

Love and Blessings Until next time

When the ‘Universe Delivers’

Listening within the heart of Gaia~ Part One

Selenite Towers and Selenite crystal ball.. The largest tower stands 14 inches tall.

Buddha and Selenite upon my landing. 

Sometimes you just have to Listen to that Inner Voice, and since the beginning of December I have been in need of just sitting in my quiet time, meditating and breathing in the peace I so needed..So how do you explain? 

So I will embark upon a story…. And hope as the narrative is guided we may both emerge wiser from reading.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

For weeks the Woman had found herself crying at the least little thing, her nerves shattered as the world about her seemed to dissolve into yet more madness. She would take herself off to her favourite places and talk to the trees as she pressed herself close to their strength, they absorbed her fears and she would return home feeling brighter.

We-all-have-our-Warts_thumb.jpg

But her nights were tormented by a sea of faces; she felt the cords of long ago pulling and weighing her heart down. Her empathy reached out and joined a part of everyone, she knew she needed to let go, learning to detach from outcomes, for she also knew within her being that ALL things were meant to pass, and that her journey was like many others was all part of the Universal plan. She needed to remember others too had chosen their path along their own particular road.

Her sleep was fitful, filled with dreams, which seemed to contain so many children’s faces. Large sad eyes, haunted with fear. The children were in the ocean, shouting for help, she would dive deep to pull them up one by one, but there were too many to save… She would swim to shore with jagged rocks, and lift the children up to those stood on the shore to be saved. But they folded their arms and turned away, saying they were not their responsibility.  She trod water pleading for them to hold out their arms to take the children, but all looked away…. She sunk back into the ocean, into the cold blackness and would awake with the taste of salt upon her skin..

Her waking hours she would read many others thoughts and find so many synchronicities of similar emotions being expressed and she knew the energies right now were gathering momentum for Change.. And those who were in tune were also feeling the need to withdraw and send out love and compassion… She also knew from her guides that she would be tested, to keep her patience and hold her peace, as others would try to sap  and unbalance her energy…. So she would walk, and garden and keep her own council.

Garden

Autumn Home Garden

It was while the woman was in the garden one morning that she was trying to interpret another dream and again the message was about the state of the world and her role within it.. She felt so heavy so sad that she could feel so many hearts all at once… She continued planting the plants that would bring forth the flowers in Spring.. But the tears blinded her and her hands shook. She collapsed to her knees in great sobs, as the world closed in on her shoulders… She knew she had to let go of all the past hurts, all the past injustices, and she knew she could not carry the weight of others. She cried out as if in pain asking the Universe to take away the burdens she was choosing to carry..

She looked up as a ray of light broke through the misty gloom of the Grey overcast December day and couldn’t believe her eyes… For there fluttering right above her head was a Peacock Butterfly, it hovered over her for maybe a minute flying around in circles.. She was motionless, speechless and watched as it disappeared as it flew into the Sun…

Peacock Butterfly

She cried even harder, but now her tears released something inside that had long been held within.. She opened her heart and understood…  We need the Compassion, and only through such pain can compassion be felt.. So many souls choosing their paths, each within their own journeys within this time frame going through their own experiences. Choosing to release and let go too of possessions of this Material World.. 

 The butterfly the symbol of Transformation.. She knew within her inner knowing Now was the time of Great Change..

And it was time to LET GO, and TRUST in the Universal Plan..

To be continued .. 

Golden Paths of Life

Golden Paths

Walking solitary I feel the breeze

As all around me is a shower of leaves

Each from new bud is born

All so perfect in shape and form

~~

Beginning life so fresh and new

Each one reminding me of Me and You

All of us held on the tree of Life

Each suspended until we return to our afterlife

~~

All upon our branches creating our themes

Turning skyward following our dreams

Constantly changing we alter and grow

Twisting and turning we follow the flow

~~

Back to our Earth Mother all must return

We all have our seasons and lessons to learn

Nothing is wasted both good and the bad

All are recycled, so we mustn’t be sad

~~

Remember how precious this journey, this Gift

We choose our pathway and which way we drift.

Which way we fall may depend on the breeze

Remember we are immortal, so let go with ease…

 

 

The above poem I wrote the other evening as I had watched this video Below The photo’s were taken upon a walk I did. 

The Leaves on the trees right now are great reminders of such a cycle..

Each one perfect, each plays its part to the whole..

We are all upon our Pathway, some may be more golden than others, but all of us are no less important.

We are all of us connected within this ‘Ocean of Life’ we are all connected to the ‘Tree of Life’

Enjoy the Dance!

May you follow your Hearts and land with ease.. 

Love and Blessings

Vibrations of Love over Fear.

For those who have been with me at Dreamwalker’s for some time  you will have heard me talk about the ‘Shift’ within our frequencies around our Earth and speak about the Earth Changes many times.

Science is now discovering more and more about the fields of energy which surround us all. They tell us that these large electromagnetic fields are generated by our heart, which when analysed show that emotions are encoded within it.

 

Often my more deeper posts will contain within them that ‘Thought Creates’.. If you doubt that thoughts create our reality then for one moment just look up from your computer screen and see the things about you.. All were once someone’s thought, which through ‘Intention’ was then created by ‘Action’ within this reality. 

The minute we are born our senses are imprinted with emotions, as we grow we take on board either love or fear which subsequently shapes our thinking and perceptions through our emotions.

When I look at what is surrounding our children and grandchildren today, I see constant ‘Negative Vibrations’ fed by TV News rooms, Films, Cartoons, Comics, and Newspapers of destructive darkness, destroying, Killing, and violence.

Is it any wonder the ‘Field’ of energy surrounding us is comprised mainly out of Fear, which we see escalating ever faster as our world appears to spin ever faster before our eyes into the abyss of Fear.  

“What we think We Create”

I wonder what would happen if those who wrote their dark plots about the destruction of earth and all within it decided to write a different script. And wrote instead of destruction, we were taught to embrace Love and Kindness, compassion and care. Embracing All of Nature and her species showing how nature heals, gives life, brings beauty and plenty for all. No one owning the land, but sharing and cooperating for the Unity and Good of ALL.

I chose the name Dreamwalker because I have a Dream. And I believe fervently if we who wish to see our world transform and ‘shift’, we have to start and bring our intentions into our hearts. We do this by sharing love, focusing on the beauty not the ‘beasts’ we see projected daily into our hearts of our living rooms via the media.

With our Intent we can impact upon this field of energy that science now recognises can be generated by our collective thoughts which mirror our emotions via our hearts. Discoveries show us that which ‘Lightworkers’ around the world are already aware of, that we are ONE, and that ALL living matter exists within one vast ‘soup’ called the Matrix or Quantum Physics  where everything is connected to everything else within the life force. ( I hope you ‘Observe’ the Quantum Physics video ) 

Our hearts need to beat as one, we can do this through our meditations, prayers and actions.

MedicineWheelChart

The Native American Indians have within their colours, Red, Yellow, Black and White. May we all come together in One Mind, One Spirit, One Heart and One People regardless of race or creed.

We all need to come back to our centre’s learning to find our inner Peace, Balance and Harmony 

We are One

Please take up this Drum, and Beat out your Love

Sue-Dreamwalker-Drumbeat-Award_thumb.jpg

And spread out our intentions to create a future of Harmony and Peace.

Believing In a Better World..

EmilysQuotes.Com - miracle, dreams, fear, energy, inspirational

I am sure that many of us wonder just where we are heading in our world which on the surface may appear to be more violent and aggressive every day.. Despite all the horrors I still believe in Miracles..

For those who are regular readers will know, I speak often upon the Earth Changes and how best we can help bring in positive change into the world.

So instead of surrendering to the Fear and joining in the judgements of others. I remind myself of my own story and focus upon my own creations. We need to stay centred within our own Peace, and stand in our own Truth.

It is up to us who believe in Love and miracles that Change for the positive is possible. It’s up to us to spread love and not get embroiled in the Fear Games we are seeing being played out by the few.. We do that by Believing, and knowing that we live by our own choices.

I know I choose Love and Caring, Not Fear and Hatred..

I truly believe that eventually love can overcome all, because each holds within us a Divine spark of our loving creator. And no matter how deeply that spark is buried within Anger and Hatred, Prejudice, Greed or Programming, I know that deep within us all there is that need to be loved..

Lightworker’s around the world are connecting together in ever greater numbers, and amazing pieces of our puzzles are slotting together as synchronicity is at work, I know I am connecting here on WP with some beautiful souls who share in my dreams of Peace.

Humanity is experiencing a dramatic shift in consciousness, and as with all change, we have to let go of the old before new ways of being can materialise. The transition is likely to be a bumpy ride. But if we join in the fear and anger it will only amplify and attract more of the same.

I can sympathise with those who maybe feeling restless as change seems unbearably slow. We have long known about the ‘Shift’ well we are the ‘Shift’.. We are the ones who have to change our attitudes and our perceptions. But it is no good waiting for the outcome of our world to change in the distant future..

For WE are the Change,

and what we think and do now with our intentions and Actions, Are the outcome..

I will leave you with Dr Bruce Lipton’s thoughts on how our minds are programmed.. And what we need to help the next generation realise that they are Loved.. 

Let us  learn to once again CARE and Live from our Hearts as One..

In LOVE..

~Sue~

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
