Joshua Tree Adventures

December Blessings to All!

Eye arrived in Joshua Tree, CA on what was a very joyful GivingThanks Day. This place is so sacred and special to me. Eye lived here for 5 months, 6 years ago! This was actually my 2nd Thanks-Giving spent here and eye am glad to be back!!

Eye spent the evening in Joshua Tree National Park. It was flooded with visitors coming during time off work and school to soak in the healing rays of Starlight and expansive desert mountains! Eye made my way out onto these huge white boulders, finding a surface area to lay down and take in the magnificent view of the Sky.

The Moon had just entered Her Waxing Crescent phase 🌒 so the Sky was dark and the Stars were twinkling so bright! My cells were dancing in delight feeling so nourished gazing into the Light of the Stars. Children were ooing and giggling nearby on other giant rocks, out in nature with there parents and siblings, it was really sweet to listen to their innocent curiosity and playfulness.

After a while, eye crawled inside my Fox Den and made some epic sushi wraps with a tahini ginger sauce. Eye drove from NV to CA that day so soon after dinner eye found a safe space to park and camp for the night.

It’s been 9 days eye have been camping in the Park having a lot of time close to nature ~ creating, singing, climbing, resting, star and moon gazing, dreaming and reflecting. Feeling ultimately blessed through the spectrum of this experience. Taking it all in as medicine to grow stronger and healthier.

Eye am currently reweaving myself into commUnity here and spreading word about Sound and Sacred Jewelry offerings. Trusting in the Flow of guidance to sync with the people and places eye am supposed to be for divine opportunities to blossom.

Here is a Crystal Sound Bath eye recorded at Sunrise on December 1 in the Park. Hope All are InJoying this season of reflection, releasing & cleansing as we come into deeper, unconditional self-love.


Also, eye am now accepting care packages and love mail to help support my journey! Eye will be grounded in Joshua Tree till at least the New Year so you can reach me ~ simply at:

Self-Care

No one knows your body better than you!  Tap into your own intuitive wisdom to FEEL when your energy needs to be nurtured, realigned, reset.  Our bodies are designed to heal themselves.  Here are some helpful tips on how to stay balanced.  eye ask that you may redefine the term ‘medicine’ to be an act of self-care, intention, visualization, teaching that is presented in the form of ancient wisdom from the Self, plant and animal kingdom.  Nature provides everything we NEED.  Find your medicine and use it!

Bless Up  💧  One Love  💧  One Earth

*Bear with me as this was my first video recording myself.  Learning, refining, relaxing, breathing 🙂

Water is Life.

Drum Birth

Drum Medicine connects us with our primordial sound.  The first sound we Hear as we are developing in our Mother’s Womb ➳ the Heartbeat.

My Soul Sister Lolly Played tons of Drum Medicine while we were Journeying in the West last Fall.  This opened my Awareness of the power of this instrument. She happened to co-facilitate a Shamanic Native American Drum Making Workshop this past Spring.  eye Felt the call that it was time for me to carry Drum Medicine!

Lolly & Dan Maxon of Turtle Drums held a beautiful Space in Nature for the Birth of 7 Medicine Drums aka Bumble Bee Drums!  As we finished the Opening Ceremony a Bee whirled around in the middle of the Circle we were sitting in!


As a Raw Vegan, eye have not ate or touched parts of dead animals for 3 years.  Smelling, touching Elk Skin was a sensory experience eye had to Embrace.  eye Needed to Create this Drum from a Space of Love.  Feeling Awareness of his/her Life that was taken with Honor to Harvest every part of the Elk.  Holding Intention for my new Elk Medicine Drum to further Healing of my Heart and to use as a Sound Healing tool to Heal others.

Listen to an Elk call here

Elk is a Symbol of Stamina.  By pacing ourselves we increase our stamina.  Elk also value spending time with the company of their own gender to Relate and Understand each other in a deeper way.  When we keep a steady pace ~ Balance and equilibrium are achieved over great distance.

Aho!

When the Creation is finished, the drum  incubates (dries) for 7 days.  For the Birth, you are to find a Sacred place in Nature, cut the Cord where the last knot was tied & Play your Drum!

As eye was walking the trail to intuitively find where eye was supposed to Birth my Drum; eye realized eye forgot my knife.  Eye Felt that was supposed to happen so eye carried on.  eye went to a special place my Sister Tiffany showed me and Listened to the Birds, Water Trickling and Wind. 

 

Allowing Nature to Guide me to where eye Needed to Bee.  Finding that place of Inner Stillness, eye knew eye would have to cut the Cord with my teeth and taste the Elk Skin.  With Honor and in Ceremony eye invited this experience in.  A Rock Spirit spoke to me and wanted to Help as eye struggled to break through the skin all the way.  Purrfection ~ the rock worked it’s Magic.  eye sat Feet in the Water and sang a Native Water Blessing song to the 4 Directions.

eye Love working with the medicine of the Drum and the Elk.  It Grounds me immediately to my Body and Connects me to a Deep Space in my Heart.  May we all find Our Medicine that Helps us stay Connected to the Vibration of Our Heart-Centered Being.

Aloha

Algonquin Women’s Water Blessing Song

Morro Bay, CA

1212

1212 was a radical day in Morro Bay.  Waves were at their highest of the year, over 40 feet.  Birds were soaring along the wave line while local people gathered to marvel at the greatness of Mama Ocean.  She is magnificent, intelligent and life giving.  I am Humbled by her Mastery of Giving and Receiving.

Much of my time on the central coast of California was spent at these waters.  Singing, praying, meditating, playing, bathing, sleeping, creating, eating, blessing.  Consciously Focusing my Awareness on the Molecules, creatures, plants and all the Elements that contribute to the Oceans grand existence, I grew a deep appreciation.  A healthy, strong relation to the Water.

On 1210, I sat oceanside and was working on a crystal pendant.  It was a Larimar crystal.  Larimar synchs one with the energy of the Sea & Sky, brings harmonious healing of Dolphin energy, connects with the Goddess/Divine Feminine, opens throat Chakra, helps to attain Ancient Wisdom from Atlantis and promotes pure relaxation.  It leaped from my grip and bounced down the big jagged rocks into the Sea.

I tried to find it -worried about the expectations of the person who was supposed to receive this pendant- and quickly Non-Attachment came into my Consciousness.  I knew I had to let it go and knew that this happened for a Divine purpose.  All of the events that led to that exact moment now have a much more deeper meaning behind them.  I can feel it in my bones.

1211, I buy myself a Larimar ring from my friend Katie’s Seven23Love etsy shop.  The next morning, 1212, friends and I go to Shine Cafe and are given the Dolphin Animal Spirit card.  When we take a second trip to the beach that day, a dolphin was sighted jumping out from the tide. Synchronicitys.  They are happening. Everywhere.  Open your Eye to see that every moment is a mystery. There is a lot going on behind the scenes that we simply can’t see with our 2 human eyes.  When we practice following our intuition, our feelings, what our gut says to us, you become more and more open and attuned to receiving deeper, universal messages through your third eye.

Here is a Love-shout to the Woman who taught me this song by the stream in her woods as she played her Medicine Drum that she Handmade to Honor the Life of a Deer that was killed by a car in North Rose, NY.  I am honored to have the opportunity to share the Healing vibration of this song with all waters on the Planet.  The Water within the Earth’s body, within ourCellves, Animals, Plants and Air.  Thank you Nancy Kasper, Farmer & Environmental Activist, of Earth Eden Sanctuary.  I Love you and appreciate all of your hard work of Protecting, Nurturing, Healing of the Land in the North East.  Your love and efforts ripple out to the entire universe.
