A Little Something I Have Learned About Disease…

    or

physical ailments

of any kind…

   by any name:

pharmaceuticals

cannot

heal

the

psychic-emotional

pain

at the root of

all

body-mind-spirit

   in-balances

and

      dis-harmonies

that manifest on the physical level as:

   dis-ease…

the specific disease by whatever name along with whatever symptoms

is simply a

messenger

from the

   soul

   a

call

to look

   within

   as we all well know…

  killing the messenger

      will never solve the problem…

As a Tribal Elder…One who has lived in this flesh body for seventy-eight years…I offer this insight as food for thought…to all of my sisters everywhere who are suffering in pain; and who have accepted the belief that pharmaceuticals can heal the wounds of mind, body and spirit that we have suffered through the ages…and continue to suffer…along with our beloved Gaia…as females of the species.

on this night of thin veils

between the worlds…

this night of

death for all that would

impede your

rebirth

or block your entrance to the

Realm of

Gaia

Mother

Goddess-Healer…

    

drink deeply this night

from the Cup of Wisdom

offered by

Ghostly Visitors

whispering  in the darkness of

endings

and

new beginnings…

speaking words of

rebirth and new ways of being

leave the dead of your past

behind

as you venture forth into the

Light

of the

New Year

growing in strength and wisdom

through the darkness of winter

to be born anew

in the glory

of the coming

spring

The Crone Who Dwells Within…*

the crone who dwells within...

the crone who dwells within…

Come, She beckoned,

Come here, my child,

Come sit beside me…

Here in the Soul-protected

Silence of

Solitude.

Listen, my daughter,

Can you hear the Sound

of

Silence?

The beating

of

Your

Heart?

The sound of

Your

Breath?

Psst.

Come sit with me in

Love-filled

Solitude,

Away from the

Din

of

the

World.

Sit quietly and

Listen to the

Sound of

Your

BEING.

And when I turned my

Ear inward and

Allowed myself to

Hear beyond the

Devastating cries of my

Pained and Wounded Heart,

I heard Her whisper:

YOU MUST BE IT…

NOT JUST SAY IT.
