Putting Myself Out There

Well the New Moon sure affected me last night. You see I have been wanting to take the Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer Course for a few years now and I finally figured out how to afford it but then my fridge broke down so I had to use the money to get a new one.

Wow! I took Blythe and Evan up North to celebrate her 16th brithday and what a trip it was. We spent three nights in Flagstaff at the time share. That was a pretty relaxing time for me. I sat in the hot tub twice a day every day we were there.

Then we spent a night at oak Creek Terrace Resort in Sedona/OakCreek. It is a wonderful place. They have a little beach right there along the creek and that is where I spent most of my time. Evan really loved it too and spent a lot of time down there meditating and climbing up and down the creek. Blythe loved the rainbow hammocks and hung out there qutie a lot.

What a Wild Ride!

I feel so weak, so strong
It’s the wildest ride I’ve ever been on
– Radney Foster (Sure Feels Right)

I went up to see Giselle again this past weekend and WOW, What A Wild Ride it was. This whole journey sure is something else. It was intense, and emotional, and beautiful, and simply magical.

Not sure if Giselle would totally agree with me and I am pretty sure utterly energetically draining would be on her list. Bless her heart for putting up with me and allowing me to go down whatever road I need to go down and holding sacred space for me no matter how it affects her.

How truly blessed I am to have this magical woman in my life, guiding me. Even when guiding means helping me stay upright while belting out Cabaret with such pure joy and emotion! What a beautiful moment that was.

She told me this weekend that I have been awfully kind and generous with my words on the blog about her and I told her she gives me reason to be. I guess it is a two way street.

Interesting Article On Soul Healing

One of the aspects to the Shaman Path that has intrigued me and inspired me is the Soul or Spirit Healing. Again, I think there are many views on what exactly this pertains but I think most agree that in general, A Shaman travels to the Spirit Realm and works with Spirits to perform healing’s for those in the physical realm.

I obviously have much more leaning and understanding to do before I can even think about wearing the healing hat, but it is something that I really want to do. I love the thought of being able to serve others in that way.

Since it is one of the things I am looking forward to, I have been doing quite a bit of research on it. During my research I came across this article that shed an entirely new light on the whole process for me. I know that when I get to the point where I can offer this service, what I learned from this article will come into play.

The Spirits Come A Calling

A few days after I returned home from the Shamanic Retreat with Giselle I had a few visitors and I am sad to say that I did not handle it very well at all. Truth be told, I absolutely gave into fear and completely flipped out.

I went to sleep that night still trying to process all that had happened in the last few days. I hadn’t been sleeping well and this night was to be no different. Below is the email I sent to Giselle:


Well it’s about 1:30 am and I have to know, are there bad spirits that come to you in your dreams? I am totally freaked out right now.

I was sleeping and all of a sudden I heard a low humming noise and then I felt/saw something grabbing my right leg and stroking it. It was skinny like a small tree branch, but very tall, hard and rough. It was stooping over. Then it moved to my foot and started rubbing the bottom of my foot, lower part of foot only. It was rubbing with the palm of its hands. It’s fingers were really long and crooked. The hands reminded me of a tree branch. It was grey. I don’t recall seeing any facial features.
