In the Medicine for the Earth work we focus our intention on many different dimensions of spiritual practice.
We focus on healing our relationship with the elements, all living beings, and ourselves. We strive to find a harmonious state inside of ourselves which will be reflected back to us by our environment in which we live. We shine our light therefore reflecting back the beauty of the shining stars in the night sky.
We focus on honoring the ancestors who have gone before and the descendants who will follow us. We honor the elements, forces of nature, trees, plants, animals, insects, reptiles, birds, those who live in the water, rocks, and all other living beings. We honor the cycles of the sun, moon, and planets. We work in cooperation and collaboration with the spirit that lives in all things and the web of life.
We practice being in appreciation for all we have been given with the understanding that our perception creates our reality and that we can transmute and transform our lives with love, appreciation, and gratefulness.
We heal the split between the spiritual non-ordinary realms and our ordinary world in realizing they are not separate. We once again invite the spirits into our lives and dance in partnership to weave an “inspirited” world into existence once again.
Through healing ourselves and our relationship with life and all living beings we begin to heal the earth and our environment. It is who we become that changes the world, not what we do.
We cannot go back and change the past, but we can change our present and future. We do this by allowing the brilliance of our creative potential to unfold. We once again remember that we are truly a reflection of the creator and we have come here as spirits in bodies to manifest that which contains beauty, love, and harmony. We recognize our own divine nature. And we continue to do the egoic work necessary to know the difference between what our egos want and what our divine nature came here to create.
We can no longer put the health of our lives and the planet in the hands of a just a few. It is time we tap into our full creative potential and empower ourselves and each other to find our own brilliance and divinity to create the world we live in.
As most of us were told we were not creative beings we found ways to try and get what we want and need through manipulation. Manipulation is not using our divine power in harmony. Manipulation is power over. Some of us learned to use manipulation instead of standing in our full creative power to try and fulfill our desires. Things would have been very different if we were all encouraged to tap into our brilliance and creativity and the gifts we came here to share. Instead we were encouraged to follow the norm and we learned how to fit in.
If this issue of manipulation speaks to you, please take some days to meditate on how you have fallen into this behavior. Remember being on a spiritual path is like walking on the edge of a razor. If you judge yourself about what behaviors you developed for survival mechanisms you are hurting yourself and are therefore Out of harmony. As you feel ready make a commitment to move out of this form of behavior to a path where you stand in your own power and get in touch with your own creative potential and how you shine in the world.
We create what we believe. For preparation for our ceremony start to examine your beliefs around your own creative potential. We create with every breath we take. Reality as we know it is how we created it. If we want to change the world we live in we must change what we created.
As we have been brought up to give our power away to outside authority figures we are all looking at taking a huge leap in consciousness to realize that we each have the power we are giving to others. We have a lot of social conditioning to dis-create. Be gentle with yourself and know that your creative abilities will strengthen and flower with time, practice, and nurturance.
We must start somewhere and sometime. The time is now. Relax into the process. There is a tine line between pushing too hard and not at all.
Do you believe that you can gather your personal creative energies with others to create a different world? Are you willing to try? Sit with this the weeks before the ceremony. And know if you crack the door of believing in your own divinity a bit you create an opening where your path back to yourself can deepen, grow, and be shown to you.
Once you are clear that you wish to join in with thousands of others who wish to claim their creative birthright read on. We are now ready to begin to look at performing the ceremony for the fall equinox I have been preparing you for since July.
If you are new to this web site please read the July and August Transmutation News before you read on. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We will perform the ceremony Sunday September 22 on the Autumnal Equinox (depending on where you live it starts late Sunday night and runs into Monday). I know that more groups can gather on Sunday. If you prefer to work Monday that is great. We just end up extending this powerful work over time. We will perform a ceremony where we transfigure into our divinity while we concentrate on the vision for the world we have been creating over the last month. Please remember although I use the word vision, in order to reach the height of creativity you must be able to see, hear, and feel, smell, and taste what you are creating. You must also experience it as if it is here now. Don’t project your experience into the future. Experience your perfect world as if it is here now and has already been created into being. We are changing our reality now.
You can either work alone or find some people you can join with to work together as community. Pick a time of day where you will not be distracted or disturbed by others.
You might wish to put on some heart expanding music. Don’t put on music with words, as this will distract you from your work. Choose some music that expands your entire being.
Begin by experiencing yourself moving your energy from your head into your heart. Take at least five minutes as a minimum. longer is preferable. Set an intention to align your heart, soul and spirit. This is the place you want to begin your work from.
As you breathe through your heart find a still and quiet place inside of yourself. Bring to your awareness something in life that is really precious to your. Keep it simple. This will facilitate an experience of opening your heart.
With your heart expanded in love keep breathing from this place. From this place of love and appreciation bring forth your vision for the planet you are creating now. You can pick a small location to focus on or the world at large. It might just be the land you live on, or the city you live in, or the country you live in, or the whole planet. As you need to be able to see, feel, hear, smell, and taste your creation as if it is here now keep your vision on something manageable. You need to keep your intention to work on something you can create fully.
We can use the same formula for transmutation as for the formula for creation: intention + love + union + harmony + concentration + focus + imagination = creation.
Now you are ready to transfigure into your divinity as you have practiced over the last few months. While you do this experience your creation as if it is happening now.
Give thanks to yourself and others who have joined together to weave such a beautiful creation into existence. Give thanks to any spirits who you called in to support your process and bear witness.
Shamanic Circles is a nonprofit organization which I am part of. Shamanic Circles is leading a ceremony over the web to honor those who died in the September 11 tragedy.
Please go to www.shamaniccircles.org for further information. There is a link from this web site to the Shamanic Circles page.
I have had two requests from others for all of us to join together to do some work on behalf of two issues. One is the Federal Government approving and pushing through the movement of toxic waste to be stored at Yucca Mountain in Nevada. The other is to help the whales who are suffering due to the Navy’s Low Frequency Active Sonar system.
Now that we know how to work with transfiguration and creation I would like to continue our work next month.
With using the Medicine for the Earth material to heal with we want to see those who are suffering in their perfection. By doing this we empower beings to draw on their own internal divinity.
To prepare for our work next month start to see the perfection and divinity of the whales. Envision the divinity and internal strength of Yucca Mountain in Nevada.
Just this act is healing in itself but we will do more on these two issues next month.
It is so important for us to join forces in recreating and healing our planet and all living beings. Remember everything manifests first on a spiritual level before manifesting on the physical. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There are two web sites you might wish to check out:
David Todd and Bonnie Bell have started the Eden Code Project which uses the projection of visual images from mandalas to heal the environment: www.GaiaStarNexus.org. They also have an on-line art gallery: www.GaiaStarWorld.com
David Corbin and Nan Moss good friends of mine who both teach shamanic workshops with me have been writing on and teaching people to work with the spirits of weather. You can visit their web site at: www.shamanscircle.com.
I am delighted to announce that there are now a good number of people I have trained to teach the Medicine for the Earth material. A list of local teachers can be obtained in a few ways. We started a web site that just lists local teachers. The web site is www.medicinefortheearth.com. There is a link from this page to that one. You can write me at P.O. Box 4757 Santa Fe, NM 87502 or you can e-mail Ruth Aber at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I know that this list will continue to change and grow so please check it out from time to time.
Please remember to join in on creating a human web of light on the full moon which is September 21. This will be a great lead in to our ceremony to honor the autumnal equinox and for the honoring of all of life by creating the world we wish to live in.
A student of mine recently read the attached at one of my Medicine for the Earth Gatherings. It is something I think will feed you during this time. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We’re the Ones You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour. Now you must go back and tell the people that this is The Hour. And there are things to be considered:
Where are you living? What are you doing? What are your relationships? Are you in right relation? Where is your water? Know your garden. It is time to speak your Truth. Create your community. Be good to each other. And do not look outside yourself for the leader. This could be a good time!
There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination. The Elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water.
See who is in there with you and celebrate.
At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally. Least of all, ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt. The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word “struggle" from your attitude and your vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the Ones we’ve been waiting for.
