Season of the Stars

There are lots of stories told about the planet Venus but how about trying to form an authentic relationship with Venus on your own? How about doing that in the same way you would get to know a new friend. Hopefully you would not only listen to the rumors and the stories told about that person, but find out who they are based on your experience of them and your relationship to them. 

In this time where Venus is bright in the night sky and early enough so you don’t have to rearrange your sleep habits to see it, perhaps take some time to sit and look at it and notice what it evokes. How about trying to get to know the planet from your own experience? Sounds fun to me. 

Ancestral Clearing

Ancestral Clearing

There are many gifts that come through a Dagara stick divination, but for the majority of my clients, I would say that the most important part is finding a connection to one’s ancestors.  The majority of us are of mixed heritages.  We barely know the stories of those who came before us, their triumphs, their hardships.  What remains even more hidden, are the medicine or craft traditions.  These gifts either went underground due to persecution, or were completely shut down so that the ancestors could fit in to new lands and new communities.

This is the season for the Remembering. Samhain time. The Day of the Dead. Why, you may ask, do we need to honor the ancestors? To live this life in balance in this world, we must be in gratitude. We would not be here if it were not for our parents, grandparents and the greats before them. Many people are challenged with this concept of gratitude when there is a history of abuse or negative patterns in the lineage.  Rightly so. It is a difficult journey to find gratitude towards an oppressive character. But much healing can come from the clearing work involved in discovering gratitude. If we do the work of healing a lineage, we can clear it forwards for our children, laterally for our siblings and cousins, and even backwards for the ancestors themselves. We hold the energetics in our bodies of the traumas that affected our ancestors or were afflicted by our ancestors. The memory persists until it is acknowledged and transmuted. So how do we transmute ancestral trauma? With offerings.
