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.”.

Shining Through

This morning I awoke to rain, but this gave me a great excuse to open my box of paints..

Today I used Acrylics and had no idea what I wanted to paint.. I had an angel in mind to start with, then a I kept looking at the butterfly I painted last weekend.. I started with the swirl of bright yellow and just kept going with the flow, adding more swirls and then I saw in my mind a mandala.. It didn’t turn out how my mind had envisioned it.. But the mandala became the butterfly..

The Trees have been taking their fair share of battering’s here in the UK recently with some very stormy weather so I wanted to honour the trees, who listen so patiently to my whispers..

You can see more of my Tree Art and a poem I wrote about trees on my post My Creative Art~ Trees  The first verse reads

oh mighty brothers that reach up high

Your branches swaying in breeze from sky

Tell me as I sit beneath your shade

What wisdom have you for me today….

This is part of Tom’s over at Beyond the Sphere  who set a challenge for April, anyone wishing to take part in producing a post with the theme of ‘Shining Through’ to be found Here ..

I wish you all a beautiful weekend..

Take care all of you.

Love and Blessings

We Journey On

 

Journey Within..

Come with me on a journey it starts inside my head

Create a place to dwell from all the Fear and dread

Close your eyes and behind them create a perfect vision

Build a garden full of beauty get ready for your transition

~

Sit upon the grass as sky lark sings above

Hold out your hand to feed the many cooing Doves

See the babbling stream as the young fawn drinks her fill

And listen to the Woodpecker’s distant woodland drill

~

Watch the tiny fishes as the light glistens from their scales

You’re now adrift in the ocean, as you watch the Humpback Whales

You listen to their song a lament as old as time

Each breath takes you deeper as your Spirit begins to climb

~

Now you are on a mountain its top all crisp and white

You fly among the Eagles suspended in effortless flight

Thermals take you higher as you travel within its ring

Higher yet you travel, more peace to feel and bring

~

Through the clouds you break into outer-space you speed

Looking back at a Blue Planet which provided all your needs

Weightless and suspended no longer feeling Form

You fly around the heavens exploring each star born.

~

Filled up now with knowledge no mortal Words could speak

You return back to your garden upon your grassy seat

A new sense of Peace surrounds you as you open up your eyes

You can return in an instant, just open up your mind.

Our Minds can create such webs of thought that entrap up within the negative if we are not mindful of being drawn in to the Fear we each hold.. Even the best of us can get caught among the threads of our own thoughts, a lesson well learned recently.

May we all learn to create Peace and Love in our lives. 

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday 

And I hope you enjoy this Video and the above poem I wrote.. 

Blessings

Searching for that Perfect Moment.

Trees, the breath of our lungs

Trees, the breath of our lungs~ A walk in Nature’s Peace

Carry on searching and you will find

That perfect moment that peace of mind

You’ll find it among all the places you look

None are within the pages of a book

So many species rely upon our Trees

So many species rely upon our Trees ~Lichen on these small branches, and thousands of insects.

While a book can teach you knowledge unbound

The Peace of your heart there is not to be found

Page after page we turn and can read

But the Peace we all seek first comes as a seed

Life~ a continual cycle of death and rebirth

Life -Nature~ a continual cycle of death and rebirth

 

So long do we lie in the depths of the Dark

Forgetting the power from which we all start

A Spark to kindle from the love we all yearn

Ignited with passion as our hearts start to learn

Catkins

Catkins and Gorse.

An Island we languish alone and afraid

We cut down each other using words as our blades

Doing unto others, we do unto the whole

What we send out we reap back as souls

Gorse too has its thorns, but it still shines its beauty to us

Gorse~ Everyone of us can show our thorns.

 

So we search and we find what was there all along

We just forgot the Harmony of Singing our Song

In Unity we blend, our voices become One

No longer separate, a choir has begun.

Gorse Bush

Gorse~ Despite its thorns it still shines bright.

In tune with Nature you’ll flourish and grow

Reaching for Light you spread out and glow

And that ‘Perfect Moment’, that Peace of Mind

It was always inside you, Seek and Find.

Keep Following the Path

Keep Following the Path to your Heart!

The Universe Speaks

First of all, Thank you to all of my followers and friends for your amazing patience, and lovely presence you all bring when you visit.. Most who know me by now know I take time out every now and again..

I needed some time to refresh and disconnect for a time from the world of Technology. So I feel another Story about to be born. Many thanks for all of your wonderful comments, and I also just want to say welcome to all the new subscribers who clicked follow during my absence.. So nice to see so many new faces.

We Push through what ever load is piled on top

We Push through what ever load is piled on top

Part One. 

The woman knew from the feelings within her body that it was time to change her energy.. The constant days of relentless rain and the feelings of being hemmed in encouraged her to seek alternative pastimes.  

She picked up Knitting, that went wrong, she painted, but her heart wasn’t in it. Books she picked up and put down..  The tiredness enveloped her mood as she flitted from one project to another.

Follow the Signs along the way

Follow the Signs along the way

She wanted stimulation something New to focus her energy upon. The Universe Spoke… But it took a few weeks before she understood what she was being shown. Yet the Signs were there pointing her in the right direction..

For weeks  just after Christmas the signs had been staring her in the face, as her thoughts had reached out but in the same instance she had rejected the idea that was being shown her.. She was too old to start this new adventure she thought.. 

Week after week she travelled the same road and time after time the Universe stopped her in her tracks to show her what it wanted her to learn.. 

The Road we travel

The Road we travel

And time after time she gave herself the same old excuse, she was too old to start a new venture, and she walked on by what the Universe was showing her.. Even though she lingered longer than normal to view what the Universe was showing her. 

Dry stone walls built to last ~Barriers we all build~

Dry stone walls built to last ~Barriers we all build~

Some weeks past and again out the blue the Universe was now shouting at her to take Notice.. and she almost toppled and gave in to the craving inside of her.. But again she walked on by..

Defences are only obstacles to over come

Defences are only obstacles to over come

  She forgot about this craving for a few weeks, and carried along her normal routines, dismissing what had been planted within her mind.. 

Togetherness within the family circle

Togetherness within the family circle

But the Universe was not going to take No for an answer. It had other plans for the woman.. And it was determined to make it’s self heard one way or the other..

This story is just a little appetiser and More will follow..

The above photo’s are part of more I will show you at a later date when I went into Derbyshire on Valentines Day with my Husband.. They are of Beeley Moor   And Rowsley 

Have a Beautiful Weekend all of you..

Blessings Sue
