Crawford Notch is one of my favorite places in the world.  I grew up in the White Mountains and spent a lot of time in the Notches.  As a kid my parents were  avid hikers, me not so much…but I got dragged along anyways.  I always loved it when we would venture into the Crawford Notch for there was something magical there, a presence…like a direct connection to the Divine.  A few falls back when my son was living in Maine I spent a lot of time traveling through the Notch.  I would get giddy with excitement when I entered the deep vale, a remarkable sense of awe filling me.  On one of my trips I stopped at one of the visitors viewing stations and took a picture.  What I captured in that picture was amazing….there amongst the trees was a being, what I have come to see as a Treant.  I have always been connected to the Fae (fairy folk),  having seen them for most of my life, but I missed seeing this big glorious wonder with my own eyes because  I was looking too small.  It makes me wonder how much we miss everyday by keeping our view limited.

I know people see what they expect to see and often do not even catch all that is part of reality, let alone things we see as outside of reality.  I once did an experiment with this in mind.  I was picking blueberries along side the road, just down from my house.  I was standing in a little clearing about 8′ wide between trees.  There were 2 people coming down the road on bicycles.  I got it into my mind that I was going to try to be invisible.  So I stood very still between the trees and kept  my eyes soft, using wide angle vision (kind of like the way you look at those 3D pictures that jump out at you),  I made sure not to directly look at the bicyclist.  I took look, smooth deep breaths and watched as the bicyclist rode by me without even looking in my direction.  I was so close I could have reached out my hands and touched them.  I think about this often when I wish to expand my vision…I think about how sometimes things are just out of our comprehension, that we put too much stock in the wow factor…expecting things to have high definition details, with flash bang effect just out of latest production of Hollywood.  When in fact most often the things outside of our reality are of a subtle nature, requiring one to quiet their mind and shift their gaze.

Today is my birthday and I am heading out this afternoon on a mini adventure with my love.  We were going to camp in the Crawford Notch, but with the less then pleasant weather I decided a jeep trip over the Kancamangus Highway & up through the Crawford Notch sounded better.  So today I will head out with my eyes wide, and my vision broad…I will soften my gaze and look for the big as well as the small.  I was talking to one of my friends about my plan to go searching for the Tree Spirit of the Crawford Notch and she suggested looking through something, kind of like in the Spiderwick movie when the kids had to look through a monocular of sorts in order to see the hidden ones.  I am not sure I am going to use an actual item, but I am going to focus my minds eye like a magical monocular and see what I can see.

I highly recommend shifting your awareness, changing your view…go spend some time in nature.  Sit still, breathe deep and shift your vision to a soft, wide angle gaze.  Look for movement in your  peripheral vision.  Resist the urge to turn quickly to look at it directly…be still and observe.  Good luck and please share any experiences you have.

Altered Reality & Becoming a Healer

When I was 15 years old I had my cards Read for the first time.  Everything I was told came true almost immediately except for one thing…I was told I would receive an inheritance from a white haired man & that it would not be money.  Now at 15 that news was quite disappointing, because a financial inheritance seemed very enticing if unlikely being of Gypsy stock.

the foolI waited many years for that inheritance, not sure what it would be or if I would even notice it.  Then when I was 28 I received my inheritance from a white haired man…I was given my first Reiki attunement.  The gift I received was the ability to heal with my hands.  Even more ironic was the fact that Reiki is a lineage art, meaning it is handed down from Master to Student and can be traced back to the founder Mikao Usui….making it an inheritance.  I can’t honestly say that I always wanted to be a Healer in fact up until shortly before meeting my Reiki Master it didn’t even cross my mind.  Growing up I never wanted to be a nurse or veterinarian or the other things Healer folk like to do.  I was a seamstress & designer who wanted to make cool clothes and Read cards on the side because I was good at it.  Then one afternoon in the summer I was overcome with a desire to walk out into the woods & call upon the Goddess.

I walked down a trail into the woods beside of my house…I just got up from whatever I was doing and felt a spontaneous need to connect with the Divine.  There was a spot in the woods that I loved, it was a place of power where the Earth energy was high.  Later when I learned the terminology of Dowsing I realized it was a nodal point on a ley line and was perfect for connecting with the energy of the Earth.  When I got there I was over come with the desire to strip naked.  This is not a common act of mine, in fact I have only felt the need to be bare before creation in ceremony a handful of times, times when the world stilled and my work was more then me…times when Reality was altered.  I had no plan, I didn’t even know why I was drawn to that spot or why I was overcome with the desire to reach out to the Divine….but I did.  I reached out from deep within my soul and asked for the ability to heal with my hands.  I remember standing beside myself in my mind thinking “Really, I am really asking for this?”  That moment, like the other handful in which I stood bare before my gods was a pivotal point in my life.  My ordinary reality took a step back and my higher self stepped up, doing the talking and putting actions in motion.  When I left the woods I really didn’t think about my request much, until months later when I found myself learning Reiki.

reiki2I became a Reiki practitioner because I wanted the side effects…Psychic self defense & clearing out blocks in my chakra system so I could channel more energy and have more clarity in my Psychic endeavors.  I remember telling my Reiki Master that I had no intention of becoming a healer.  I find this quite amusing as I began doing Reiki on others immediately after getting my first attunement.  I started offering it up to anyone and everyone who had physical or emotional ailments.  I still try to step away from being a healer, quite often saying I am not going to do Healing work anymore but instead focus on my Readings and Spirit Communication…my husband always laughs about this point as he knows I will not actually step away from it, no matter how many other good healers I know.  Healing work for me is something outside of my reality.  I did not choose it, it chose me & it won’t let me go.  I know I have been a Healer in many other life times, that was obvious by the fact that I started doing Shamanic techniques as soon as I started doing Reiki…feeling the need to blow into peoples Chakras and pull things out of their Auras.  I even started doing Sound Healing because I remember doing it in another life time.  All that being said, I did not choose to be a Healer this life time.  It is something with a mind of its own.

I have not regretted my Healing work and I have a great love for Reiki…in fact I have my Reiki Master in 6 schools of Reiki, as well as being a practioner of Rune Valdr & Sacred Sound work.  I love teaching others Reiki and how to heal with their hands as well as opening their minds and broadening their reality.  None of this do I regret, but I do sit from time to time and wonder how I got here…how did I end up on this road.  I think the answer lies in Reality, alternate reality…expanded reality.  I didn’t have the desire to become a healer, but some Sali in some reality did…or my higher self knew it was for my greater good and just set out to see it done.  I know I am a pretty open vessel and an easy channel which makes it easier for the universe to use me.  I believe we all have this connection to our higher self, that allows for our reality to be altered from time to time when the cause is good or the situation necessary.  I am thankful for the ability to heal, I am thankful for the ability to share healing with others as a practitioner and teacher.  I am amazed at the universe and the force that works through us mere mortals, shifting us about from time to time as necessary.

This was not at all what I thought I would write about today, but I spent my morning teaching 3 talented empathic people Reiki.  I also shared some words of advice from my Reiki Master….”Reiki has a mind of it’s own”.  You do not know how it will shape you, or what your personal work in healing will be until you embark on that journey.  To be a Healer means you have to look at your own shit and see the things about yourself that need healing.  Through my work as a teacher of Healing Arts I have met people with fantastic gifts and witnessed the road open before them taking them to their work.  I can not say enough how thankful I am that my inheritance was not money…it would have paled in comparison to the gift of channeling energy.  I am ever thankful for the ability to share it with others.

The Earth is Shifting…

I hear a call deep inside my soul, a restlessness,a  feeling of anticipation…almost anxiety.  This Spring has been an intense  in many ways.  It has been slow to the coming with Winter holding on with a death grip…yet it carries a wild intensity that one feels just before a wake up call. Everyone I talk to seems to be having some kind of Chaos going on in their lives.  This is somewhat normal in the beginning of May during Beltaine (Celtic Fertility Holiday, May 1st), as Beltaine is a cross quarter day & a time when the Veil between the Worlds is thin.  But this feels more like the stirring of the Earth.  I am not much of an Astrologer, but I see patterns in the people I Read for and the things I observe Psychically.  I find it intriguing how often my sight & the story of the Stars is right on.  I think I choose not to learn Astrology so that I can be amazed when I see their connection.  What I feel or know now is that the Earth is shifting. I suppose one could say the Earth is always shifting, but now is a  time of deep change.  Energetically people are getting more and more open, we are evolving again into a species with deep telepathic & empathic abilities.

Are we becoming more Empathic as a result of the Earth Shifting?

 

walkwayOr are we more aware of the shift in the Earth’s rhythms because we are becoming more Empathic?

These questions are kind of like which came first the chicken or the egg?  We could spend forever and a day looking for an answer.  One thing however is for sure, we are waking up, or rather we are in the wee hours of the morning when only the few are awake.

 The other day I woke with such a feeling of urgency that I quickly did a scan to make sure that all those close to me were ok.  I then began to expand my minds eye to seek out that which I felt create a disturbance in my energetic field. (Got to say, it was really hard not to sound like a Star Wars movie in that line…but lets face it, I pirate my terminology from wherever I get it.)  So my energetic force was on, I felt like something of great importance was/is going to happen.  And this something is connected to the Earth itself.  I have felt an overwhelming need to be out in nature, I want to go camping very badly and I even made my husband trek up into the woods behind my house to help me find a campsite in the back acres. *found a spot, needs some work*.  My need to connect with the green world is a tangible thing.  I am not alone in my thinking that the Earth is speaking to us as she shimmies and shakes under our feet.  I do not have any well thought out answers to what this is about or even what it means, but I feel it…I know it…I am excited by it!  I do know that we are being called to connect.  After all the Earth/Gaia is a living sentient being & there is a lot wrong going on with the ecosystem.  I am not a doomsayer, in fact I am a supreme optimist.  I am excited to be living in such a time of change.  I invite you to join me in reaching out to the Green World.  Check in with the wild world and let me know what you think.  Can you feel it? Is your world vibrating in an unusual way?  Do you have general, harmless mischief circling you?

Tattoos as Spiritual Armor

I have 6 tattoos on my body, all but one of them have been chosen for spiritual reasons, the odd man out being the Siamese fighting fish on my leg that I got simply because I turned 18…

hawthorntattTattooing is an ancient tradition with archaeological finds leading back as far as 6000 BC.  The art or transforming our bodies with ink is known in almost all cultures.  The reasoning behind tattoos are many, but it all leads back to a feeling of identification and a telling of ones story, kind of like a living scrap book.  In our own culture the art of the Tattoo has become much more acceptable with people of all walks of life adding ink to their bodies.  It is no longer something reserved for sailors and motor cycle enthusiast, but a cross culture experience shared by the likes of doctors, teachers, police officers and mothers.

Yesterday I finished having  Hawthorn tattooed on my left shoulder/chest & back.  I began the process in the end of April, knowing that I needed to have it done during the Beltaine season.  *Beltaine is the Celtic holiday celebrating fertility, the awakening of the Earth & the Fairy folk..  Hawthorn is one of the Sacred trees of the Celtic Ogham with a deep connection to the Fairy folk.  I personally have a strong connection to Hawthorn, having a deeply spiritual experience with it while I was in England in 2011.  I went to the UK to marry the land.  While visiting Modrons Well in Cornwall, I went to place my ribbon on the Cloutie tree and found my name already hanging from the tree.  This was an overwhelming experience for me as I saw it as an acceptance from Gaia (the EArth) that she accepted me as her Bride.  (If you want to read more about this experience make sure to check out my blog article Cloutie Tree.).  The layers of spiritual connection represented by this tattoo are many.  And like all spiritual experiences it takes time to adjust and acclimate to the new energy.

How do we approach Tattooing as a sacred experience?

I see my Tattoos as a form of Spiritual Armor.  They symbolically represent an attribute of my personality and are reminders of the spiritual energy I work with every day in my life.  For me the whole process of getting a new tattoo is one deeply set in Spirit.  Some of my tattoos have come to me in my dreams others have shown them selves to me in moments of Awen (the spirit of Creativity).  When choosing a tattoo, I not only think about what I am putting on my body…but where I place it.  Placement is key as our the outer surface of our body is like a map, connecting to organs and our energy body.  When you have decided on what you want on your body and where it is to go you then need to choose an artist you feel is a good match for you.  They do not have to share your spiritual beliefs, but they do need to make you feel comfortable.  The energy you hold while receiving your Tattoo is important.  Preparing yourself to receive a new Tattoo is also important, I highly recommend meditating on the image before you have it placed on your body.  Spend some time thinking about how this symbol will effect your energetic body.  When the time comes to actually get it inked on your body, remember you are taking part in a Sacred act.  Some people are very sensitive to pain and do not enjoy the act of getting Tattooed, I personally like it.  Remember to actively engage in receiving your Tattoo…as the ink bonds with your skin, you are being altered.  Your energy is being enhanced by the symbols you receive.  This is why you should be thoughtful in the whole process of adding art to your body, for it truly does have an impact.

I cannot express enough to you the importance of approaching Tattoos with a spiritual eye.  You are making an adjustment in your energetic field when you place one on your body, so go into it consciously… explore the energy you are embracing before placing it on your body.  The markings we place on our skin our part of our Energetic Armor and need to be seen as the powerful gestures they are.

The Importance of daily Spiritual practice

salionrockIt has come to my attention over the years that many people are starving for a Spiritual connection.  Our world of high-tech media may offer us instant gratification in the information department, but it does little to feed the soul.  We can read all the spiritual blogs & watch all the YouTube video’s we want, but they will not equal a personal connection to the Divine.  Now I do not personally give a rat’s ass how you get to God.  Call the Divine being by whatever name you want, see them in whatever shape you want but find a way to connect.  Going through life as an island is not only lonely, but it is often scary.

I have had a personal connection to God/Goddess/Divine since I was a child.  When I was little my father didn’t believe in God, but he thought that it was important that me and my sister Sandy had a connection…just in case there really was a God.  So we went to Sunday school by ourselves starting at the age of 3 & 4.  Looking at it from my vantage point of years-being a parent of grown children & soon to be grandchildren-I see this as a bit odd.  I couldn’t imagine myself to be trusting enough to let other people influence my children’s understanding of the Divine without me having a chance to explain.  But God is good and we went to a great little church, where Sunday school was all about Jesus and his love.  By the time I was 10  my dad found God and we started going to church together as a family, and we certainly went to a variety of them…some totally groovetastic, some a bit over the top weird.  By the time I was a teenager I realized that I didn’t personally connect to the Christian view of God as the only view.  I still highly loved God…in fact I can honestly say that from the time I was little I was having some deep and meaningful conversations with the big cheese.  What I didn’t get was that there was only ONE WAY to connect.  I found this thought crazy…I mean in a world where people speak many different languages and have thousands of cultural differences how could an all mighty being have but one face, one image.  It just seems wrong to me that God would be prejudice….My God is a God/Goddess of LOVE and inclusion.  By the time I was a young adult I realized that I not only could see the face of God inside of church but in the world around me.  My god was in the trees and the streams, the animals and people who walk this planet with me.  Kind of like the Borg view of the Collective, I see God/Goddess as all…like a gemstone with many facets.  Some people like to look at it from one direction, some from another, but all are God.

Finding a personal path to God/Goddess for me is ever evolving & simple.   It has layers of complexity that change as I grow and expand my mind, after all we create God in our image.  Yet it is the simplest thing there could be.  Sometimes when I am in need of sanctuary I head outside and sit within my sacred circle.  I don’t do anything fancy, I simple sit in sacred space and talk to the divine.  I don’t get all fancy in my speech or go to elaborate measures.  I just sit and talk, like I am talking to the best friend I have ever had.  I let all posturing and presenting go, I am vulnerable and without boundaries…there is nothing hidden, after all how could there be.  I do not always go because I am in need, I go because I am thankful, I go because I simply want to connect to that greatness, the Spirit of all.  Not every day is profound, filled with moments of awe…some are boring and filled with the drudgery of life, but even on those days I make a point of connecting to myself and my God/Goddess on a personal level.  Whether it happens on my yoga mat, or deep in prayer, I reach out and connect for it feeds me, it makes me feel alive and whole.

Find a way for yourself, and do not lock yourself into the boundaries created by others.  Religion is but a mere guideline of how others have gotten to God.  In looking for your own path search, read, play and experience.  Take that walk in the woods, sit for an hour beside a brook, visit holy places whether they belong to your religion or not.  Experience these places for the divine doorways that they are.  Whether you have 5 minutes in front of a candle praying or a day on the water connecting does not matter….what matters is the vulnerability in which you approach the Divine.  Do it with all that you are, hold back nothing and expect to be heard.  We are all creatures of God and we are all valuable, Divine beings put on this Earth to Love.

Namaste (the light in me, salutes the light in you)….

Psychic Protection in the Healing field…



stethascopeOver the years I have noticed that most of the people working in the Medical field are Empathic.   The same can be said about the people who are drawn to work in education and social services.  This is not a coincidence, in fact it is probably the most common denominator between these folks…since childhood they have been drawn to comforting others.   In fact they can’t help but want to help others, for they truly can feel their pain.  The basic nature of an Empath is to constantly be searching for emotional input.  This is not something they think about, in fact it has little to do with intellectual thought.  Empathic ability is a form of  Psychic knowing in which the Empath receives information regarding the emotions of a person, animal or place by way of the 6th sense or Psychic knowing.   This ability to pick up on others emotional needs can be a fantastic tool for those working in the healing fields, but without understanding and control this gift can become a nuisance.

A few years ago I was the guest speaker at a staff appreciation day for mental health workers.  As I looked out over the crowd, I couldn’t help but notice how many of the people in the crowd were over weight, drank too much or chain smoked cigerettes.  Recently I spent some time visiting loved ones in the hospital and saw the same thing  amongst the staff.  The compassionate, caring individuals who spend their days caring for others are often the same people who sorely lack in the ability to take care of themselves.  Often health care professionals are overworked and have a hard time letting go of their day when it ends.  This is impart due to confidentiality and not being able to discuss their day & the stress of carrying the emotional fear and frustration of others.  This stress pays its toll often leaving those in the healing field just plain spent.   When we don’t have enough time for ourselves and we carry around other peoples burdens we have a tendency to self soothe through food, alcohol, tobacco, etc.  Plus lets not forget high levels of stress dump extra cortisol into the system, making it hard to loose weight and dumping extra pounds into the belly area.

Why Empaths are easily drained

Spending the day with others can be quite draining on Empathic people, particularly if that day involves caring for them.  This is the result of having no filter, or volume control.  Like the other senses, the 6th sense can be overwhelmed by input.  Just like our ears can hurt when exposed to loud noise and our taste buds can become inflamed if exposed to something too hot or too sour.  The difference between the 6th sense and the other senses is that most of us learn at a young age how to moderate the input to our hearing, sight, taste, touch and smell.  Our parents tell us to turn down the music as it will damage our ears, we learn that popping a jalapeno into our mouth is going to burn and that starring at bright lights messes with our vision.  The other senses are sociable acceptable.  We believe in them & science has proven them to be real.  Well you all know how I feel about science.  I love it, but lets face it there are plenty of things science claimed did not exist (like a round earth), that later were proven different.  The problem with being an Empath who works in the healing field is you are always being exposed to heavy duty emotions.  People in the hospital are scared, frustrated and overwhelmed…If you work in mental health, you are working with people with handicaps and mental disorders, schools lets face it children struggle to contain their emotions.  These situations are a guaranteed storm of emotions and the Empath working in them is being exposed 8+hours a day.

Carrying protection-

boobystones&pocketprotectorsBooby Stones & Pocket Protectors…are names I have given to personal stones carried for Psychic protection and enhancing ones Intuition.  As you know I am a big lover of stones and crystals.  I have stones I use in my healing work, and stones I use to hold space, the list of stones I have and their purposes is a long one.  But my favorite of favorites, my tried and true companion is my Booby stone.  Mine is a beautiful Labrodorite that not only enhances my intuitive ability, but protects against Psychic attack or overload.  I don’t wear it every day, but if I am going into an emotionally charged situation or place I carry it in my bra, against my Heart Chakra….hence being named a Booby Stone.  Not to worry those of you who do not wear bras to carry your stones in, you can also carry your stone in your shirt or pant pockets or get yourself a little pouch to carry your stone.  I carry my stone in my bra as I can place it right up against my Heart Chakra.  Your Heart Chakra is attached to love and it is one of the  most vulnerable places for those who are Intuitive.  We reach out with love to comfort others and therefore we open our Heart Chakra to do so.  Pocket Stones are a good choice as well, particularly if you carry them in your front pant pocket.  This places them close to the Root Chakra..the Root Chakra is responsible for keeping us feeling grounded and centered.  Carrying a bit of protection is the first line of defense for those working in the healing fields, it makes it so we are not going in alone.

Remember being Empathic is a gift, one you need to  learn to control…

Heads up Peeps…For all of you health care professionals out there-I will be posting a workshop in the next couple of weeks designed for health care professionals.

Marrying the Land & Beltaine

Three years ago I went to England and married the land inside of Stonehenge…I had just finished a 3 year course in Druidry  with the Green Mountain Druid Order and visiting sacred sites in the UK was our graduation trip.  I like to refer to our 15 day trip as the Pinball Wizards tour of Sacred Sites.  I call it this because we visited stone circles and holy wells throughout England and Wales in a high speed, energetic miasma that seemed out of time and space.  We drove throughout the countryside in a 12 passenger van listening to Hindy music, often visiting multiple stone circles & holy wells daily.  I had overwhelming personal experiences that confirmed for me that the land had accepted my proposal.  (Read my blog article the Cloutie tree if you want to hear more about my personal experience).  This trip took place over Beltaine as it is a traditional time in which one does such things.

stonehenge2What does it mean to Marry the land?  

As a Druid I follow a Nature based Spiritual practice in which I see all life as sacred and myself as a steward of the planet.  In simple terms, I believe God/Goddess is in everything and everyone and the Earth/Gaia is my temple.  Marrying the land is an ancient practice in which one is bonded to the land, similar to a priest giving vows to the Divine, when you Marry the land you make promises to the Earth as a caretaker and partner.  The practice of Marrying the land can be followed back to the ancient Celts, whose Kings made a practice of bonding the land.  Along with the Kings and their high seats the peasant folk too married the land, most traditionally at Beltaine.

Beltaine…

raising the maypoleBeltaine or May Day as it is sometimes called is a Celtic Fertility holiday that takes place on May 1st.  It is located between the Vernal/Spring Equinox & the Summer Solstice.  It is a holiday sacred to the Earth and the Green folk (Fae/Fairy folk)…like Samhain/Halloween is a time when the veil between the worlds is thin, a time Betwixt & Between.   Where Samhain is a time of dying Beltaine is a time of fertility, new life and awakening.  Traditional Beltaine ceremonies are symbolic of the union between man & woman.  The Maypole which represents the phallus is placed into a hole in the Earth to cast blessing on the land that it may be fertile.  This is a traditional blessing of the crops and livestock.  In the celebration a queen is often picked from among the participants.  A new May Queen is chosen every year at Beltaine, during her reign the May Queen is closely connected to the Earth, a human representative you may say.  Many old pagan traditions are quite bawdy at Beltaine, but in modern practices are usually pretty PG-13.

My vows to the Earth are ever evolving, like any marriage they change with time.  I personally am not much of a gardener so my vows rely little on me planting things and the like.  I see my voice as the most important thing I have to offer my Bride.  I believe by spreading the importance of being ecologically conscious and educating others I am serving my  love in the way I best can.  I make personal vows to be respectful, to be conservative in my use and to remember always to think about the impact of my actions.  The Native Americans had it right…what we do will effect the next 7 generations.  We need to start thinking like that every day.  What we do does impact the Earth, our home and the generations of our children that follow us.

Today on Beltaine I am reminded of my commitment to Gaia/Earth and my love of the world I walk upon.  I am appreciating the Druidbitchloverain that is washing away the last of the snow that sits on the wood line of my little mountain home & the mist that so embodies the Betwixt & the Between.  Tonight I will lay my blessing upon the Earth and set fourth my offerings for the fairy folk.  The grander celebration of the first of May will take place on Saturday as I join my Druid friends at Dreamland in raising the Maypole and singing to the Earth.

Try this at home…

Tonight leave out a bit of honey water for the spirits of the Green/fairy folk.  Say a blessing on your land, whether it is a batch of grass in the front of your door or acres of farmland.  If you have no land to speak of say your blessings in the park, or by a tree that stands out to you.  Remember folks Intention & Will=Magic.  If your feeling a bit spunky, sprinkle some glitter on your cheeks or wear a crown.  Celebrate the coming of spring and the warm weather that is just around the corner.  Love…spread it all around, we just can’t get enough of that stuff.
