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:

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.
