Time With Our Elders

Sacred Ground Summer Immersion Field Trip
9 week Medicine Wheel Program

Time With Our Elders

We’ve been enjoying our Medicine Wheel Program Summer Immersion Field Trips so very much and we’re still at it. Everyone is making the progress they need.

Nature is our collective Elders that we’re creating reciprocal relationships with, where ever we go. This Sunday was the first time we haven’t visited an open body of water. But when we arrived at our special destination, we were met with the open arms of an enormous old oak who offered us her deep, peaceful and cool shade.

There was a very old historic water fountain built of volcanic rock, a short walking distance to the East of our tree. There it stood behind a rusting wire fence, a once glorious, beautiful and peaceful place of flow and healing. The rocks seemed so sad, covered in spider webs, dry leaves, bird droppings and twigs. A healthy outcropping of aloes stood unnoticed and high up, towards the back of the once majestic and now defunct water fountain.

We made our humble offerings of ash & sacred waters to the ancient stones. I listened closely to the stone people now neglected and storing old traumas, needing attention and appreciation as all elders would. Libations we poured were of waters we’ve collected throughout our summer journeys to special places where we laid down our prayers.

Energy blockages released from deep within the stones, as we witnessed for them, letting go of invisible pains and sorrows. We asked the stone people to remember once again the days when the songs of water spirits flowed & tumbled down their bodies, enlivening their hearts to balance their element of fire created stones with the cool of once pure water.

With all of our spirits lifted, our Elders fed, celebrated, watered spiritually by libations being poured & memories recalled, we said our farewells to journey home again, with fond memories of another blessed Sunday in the heart of nature in Northern California, co-creating healing with our Great Mother Earth.

Aloha, Phyllis

Receiving From Your Heart

Phyllis Bala

Today in our circle, I felt all of you listening and receiving from your hearts, around the Oak Tree, the Axis Mundi.  Each morning we wake up, the spirits of the trees stand ever more connected to us and what we are communicating, feeling, saying, knowing & in need of.  They are also ever more aware of our difficulties, challenges, hurts, confusion, pain & need for continued healing.  So, rest assured your hearts, minds, spirits & souls are being acknowledged in spiritual dimensions we are taking the time to interact with, even if we can't sense their presence & response in the hustle & bustle of our daily lives.  Some day you will sense a change within and your partnership with our collective elders of nature will be forever deepened, changed and integrated into your daily rhythms.

Next Sunday, our planetary expressions are outlined here, so we will be in reciprocity with nature accordingly. There may be a wonderful little surprise or two for our circle on that day.  Please remember to bring ALL the items you need to be safe & comfortable in differing climates and elements.  So here is your first clue

Thankfully, a Venus-Uranus trine helps lighten our load on Sunday. With this aspect, the goddess of love is inclined to be social and is open to new adventures, as long as both the friends and the experiences are lighthearted and don't restrict or confine her free spirit. (excerpted from the following:

ATTENTION: Bring generous offerings for the original ancestors of the land we will be visiting & for the spirits of the planets who are creating the central theme. We will participate in the central THEME OF THE DAY.  

Next Sunday's theme is all about friendships, socializing, new adventures, healthy and light-hearted freedoms, supporting & becoming less confined and more free spirited!  This will serve as yet another reminder that our bottom line is about incorporating PLAYFULNESS, LIGHT HEARTED NESS and BEAUTY into our everyday lives. Celebrate!

It was a pleasure to receive your generous gifts of food you all shared today.  Thank you for your willingness to co-create this~our time together.

Aloha, Phyllis
