Return of the Plumed Serpent
On the night of June 5th i took my drum in hand and journeyed into the spiritworld, a deep ache in my soul had been bothering me for a few days and i wanted to enquire from the spirits its cause and hopefully its healing.
This is the vision i had ...
...Eagle came for me , flew me to Mexico to the sacred temples there. We circled for a while and then finally flew off, eventually arriving at my cave, the place i spiritually go to when asking for guidance..
I sat there crossed legged and prayed about this deep ache and grief that i was holding inside. At the mouth of the cave the ocean ebbed back and forth and from it came the whale, a huge sperm whale, another of my many Allies. I climbed upon his back and submerged into the depths of the ocean.
This great animal has taught and shown me many things, one being the whales breath, a very deep shamanic breathing technique that allows me to go deeper into trance.
Eventually we arrived at an unknown dark shoreline late at night. I thanked my friend and walked onto the moonlit beach where i sat and again felt the pain inside of me. I began to cry and pray, asking for guidance and healing.
From the thick jungle behind me, what appeared to be an indian woman, walked calmly up to me and put a medicine shawl around my shoulders. She talked softly eventually persuading me to go to her village through the moist foliage. We did this and eventually arrived there. A circular canopy of sticks and branches surrounded the space and at its centre was a large wooden pole that reached high into the jungles canopy..
I was introduced to the elders and then guided to climb the wooden pole, where there was a small fragile tree house atop of it. We climbed to its top and as I sat there in meditation the indian woman, that was now sat by my side said, ' He is coming '.
I went inside and there were all the female members of my family, even my grandmother Lilly, who herself has past over and is now in the Spirit world. In the centre of the room and the dining table was a big birthday cake. The women gathered around and said ' We've got a present for you'.
As they said this my consciousness shifted and in an instant i was a baby again in my cot wrapped up, like i remember, left to cry and scream alone, as the old people had told my mother to do when i was a young child.
This is the place where the original ache in my soul had begun, where the deep sense of lack of love and connection had all started.
Again i began to cry as i felt this wound in the deepest parts of me. Again i began to pray.
The room began to gently illuminate as a vision of Our lady appeared above me. She began to shine so bright that all colour was transformed as she shone now with just pure bright white light.
Again I began to pray, giving thanks for this Divine feminine healing I was receiving not just from her but from all the woman I had known throughout my life, that were now in the room with me wishing me well. I also asked for forgiveness for any wrongs I may have done to any of them and that they to may receive divine blessings and healing.
As I was engulfed in the light of Her love I felt the deep ache inside me receding and slowly being transformed and healed. I continued to breath deeply fully acknowledging the experience. Then from the light that now surrounded me once again came the feathered serpent, it picked me up and spiralling through the inner realms bought me back to my cave.
As is my regular custom I thanked my guides for such a beautiful and deep healing process and closing my inner eyes left this sacred space and returned to my body.
As I did this I deeply embraced myself and fully engaged the healing energy back into my physical body, it felt like an electrical current as my soul fully re engaged back into the present moment.
I knew it would take a few days to fully integrate this experience and looked forward to the transformations it would surely incur.
This journey has had a very profound effect within me and if this alone was not amazing enough, I did this journey the night of the Venus transit in June 2012 but was unaware at the time that this auspicious alignment was occurring.
After discovering this planetary alignment a few days later I realised that it was a perfect inner reflection of the Celestial alignment..
I very rarely read books or study such things for exactly this reason. I will generally only study after the fact, to confirm my inner reality. This allows my consciousness to directly experience itself, using literature, tradition and cultural references as tools of confirmation rather than information. The celestial bodies enact the universal and cultural archetypes and when aligned with, consciously or not can bring about a greater experience of unity and presence with all things. As the saying goes ' As above , so below '
May you to be blessed with the touch of Her light and the brush of His illumined feathers.
