A healing journey on Bear Mountain (Arizona adventures, Part Two)

During my trip to Arizona, I offered a new type of healing ceremony to those that showed interest (see post here).

It was the first time I've ever conducted a healing ceremony with the Spirits of Place of Sedona, and I was both excited and a little nervous. Would they respond to my songs? How would I adapt to the extreme energy work after hiking for ~2 hours to reach the summit? Would I be interrupted by other hikers?

Because of my work with Bear Spirits, I decided to work on top of Bear Mountain, in Red Rock State Park. I packed my small egg-shaped rattle, my smaller Mahakala phurba, my bone Runes, and lots of offerings.

Without going into too much detail (confidential appointment), I created sacred space, and began singing my songs to all of my Helping Spirits. When I began singing for the Nagas, a giant white snake appeared next to the side of the mountain! I was so excited, because I never get to seem them as "actual size."  However, the Naga took one look at where we were, and immediately said, "Nope! Too dry, not enough water! Work with Rattlesnake instead!" and disappeared.

I freaked.

I'd not worked with Rattlesnake, and hadn't even Journeyed to introduce myself to her properly yet. I was afraid that she wouldn't come, or work with me for healing and transmutation.

I continued singing the songs, and I noticed that during the Ancestors song, my arm hair stood on end and I feel extreme cold. I looked around, and saw not only my own ancestors (and those of my client), but I saw the Ancestors of the indigenous peoples of Arizona. We looked at each other, and I introduced myself. "A druid? Huh...we're not going to participate in your ritual, but will watch you and see what you are doing."  I thanked them, and felt my nervousness rise even more (eek! Witnesses!).

After the songs, the appointment went in a somewhat usual fashion, and my cell phone recorded everything very well.

Remote appointments can be very fun, if done within a sacred space. Interested? Send me an email!
