Beauty all around. SO Beautiful and all a reflection – a mirror–of the beauty within. “I am so glad to be alive, so grateful to be here.” The days being with the slow and peaceful rising of the sun. Giant vulvas in the clouds. Ancient rumbling cliffs. Oh wondrous stillness filled with the dawn’s soft colors. “
MY BODY IS SACRED, I must take care of it. MY ANGER IS SACRED, I must honor it . “ For I am a wise and powerful being. My visions come to me in my dreams and mediations and the forces of my anger helps carry them through. “ NO, I am not to be violated. The earth reverberates through me. Ancient mother, I hear your song.
DEM was a time for me to really listen to the earth and hear what she is saying. All of the above words in capitals are sacred Earth Mother wisdom. They are my sacred earth mother wisdom. DEM was a time for me to discover what the earth speaks through me.. through my feelings, my thoughts, dreams, and visions. Through my dance. Through the essence of my being the earth speaks.
It is hard to express in words what I learned in New Mexico, because I did not speak it there. I speak too much. My words cut me off from who I truly am. How can I hear, see, feel, the pulse when the words drown it out? LISTEN< LISTEN< LISTEN and know the soul’s purpose. “It is so wonderful to realize how unique each of us is, how much wisdom we each have to offer, and how much we have learned about listening.”
During this time I felt the universe supporting us: “COURAGE MY CHILDREN, FOR YOU ARE TRULY BLESSED AND LOVED BY THE POWERS THAT BE.” And we were humble. The earth asked for her boundaries to be respected. We followed our heart’s desire. So many messages. And we heard them. We listened. The messages came in many forms. Not always in words. In dance; in butterflies; in water flowing; in beams of light touching the earth; in sharp and painful cactus stabs.
