This is the 9th and last post in our Women’s Medicine series with excerpts from Kay’s book, Sacred Link as Chea and Kay continue their time of moon lodge ceremony.

This is the closing part of the Women’s Medicine series in which Chea and Kay talk about learning to connect with the beings around us, about singing from the heart, about the importance of the teachings of the grandmothers and how much our culture has lost of that. Kay closes this part with a powerful dream.

We sincerely hope you’ve enjoyed this series about Women’s Medicine.

Kay started the day with a Song Ceremony and a Bone Throwing Ceremony about Women’s Medicine, which are available for free.

“OK now. You know to keep observing with all the senses as often as possible. It must become second nature to you. Notice the ones around from the other nations. Which ones are they? Are there a lot? Is there anyone you know? Like your friend the wind keeper. Or maybe you are in another location where your friend doesn’t go too often but you feel another wind keeper there.

“Say hello. Be respectful. Always give your greetings and energies to the ones who live there, especially to the ones who are of a nation you are akinned to already. This is the way we approach our relatives and friends.”

She had me crawl over close to a small fern that was near our spot. She touched the leaves very lightly and said something to it under her breath. Turning to me she spoke. “One must always come gently to the plant nations. Come in peace and joy and respect. They are a most kind race and it is important that no matter how long it takes you always keep patient.

“It’s good to remember that plants see right through your masks so you might as well leave them at home. Use the gifts of the four directions, stay in your center as well as you can. Make your quest clearly known to them. You want to feel into their medicines very
keenly. See if you can copy the mood they make. Create it inside you.

“And always offer of yourself. Share the Earth Fire Serpent energy as it moves through you. Share the energy from your heart. Let them flood and fill the area and all the ones there. Remember, your body is an altar, it is a sacred thing. The energies and love and respect are
your offering, your gift. Observe everything.

“You will do this daily until a member of the plant nation responds to you.”

“But, Chea. How will they do that? Will I be doing this daily thing for a week or a year? Or how does this work?”

She said matter-of-factly. “However long it takes. Nobody can say. Don’t worry. You will know when one has accepted you.”

“I got a question. About making and singing the fibers to the plants. Remember when I did that by accident to the water keeper? Is this something that I should do or not?”

She seemed pleased with my question. Singing the fibers is something she always had a special liking for. “If it feels right to you and is something you want to do from your heart. Yes. Observe carefully. It should be an act of giving and offering and friendship from your heart. It should be unconditional. An honoring. The plant nations love gracefulness and melodic sounds. Sometimes you might even hear them singing back.

“This singing from your heart, you know, calls their attention like nothing else. It says to them, ‘Hello, I’m here to show my gratitude and respect to you. I’m here as a friend. I seek to know you and share with you in the oldest way. The way of the sacrament.'”

“Chea. The way you talk about singing to the plants, you sound almost like you’re courting.”

“Of course.” She smiled warmly. “When you are approaching any being for the sake of closeness, intimacy of one kind or another, it is a courting. Among my people singing to a prospective lover is always a part of the courting. It’s a gift, an honoring. And singing to the other nations is a way to give, honor, court their attentions.”

I smiled back. “That’s so beautiful.” The more I had the chance to think about it the more I was struck by the intensity of the gentleness and giving of this way of life. Tears came to my eyes. I had so much admiration and joy to express and no words that could carry it.

“So. You are ready now.” She took my hand. I could feel her deep caring.

Women’s Medicine Part 7 – Unconditional Love

As you know, as part of the Women’s Medicine One Day Class Kay did a Bone Throwing Ceremony about Women’s Medicine.

Unconditional Love is an essential part of Women’s Medicine and of women’s journey back to the center and of our world’s journey back into balance.

To share with you both, what a Bone Throw is (if you haven’t seen one yet) and what the Spirits of the Bones have to say about Unconditional Love we wanted to share this Bone Throw with you.

I’m sure some of you have seen this already, but even if you have, we encourage you to take the time to take another look. It’s an amazing Ceremony.

Enjoy!

Women’s Medicine Part 6

This is the 6th post in our Women’s Medicine series with excerpts from Kay’s book, Sacred Link as Chea and Kay continue their time of moon lodge ceremony.

In Part 6 of the Women’s Medicine series Chea is very direct. You could say, she drives the point home. So, hold on to your hats.

You may not agree with her methods, or even with what she is sharing, but don’t dismiss it just because she doesn’t conform to the culturally acceptable thing.

What has happened to our culture, to men and women, is horrific. They got us to bury and hide our Song and most of us don’t even realize how horrific that truly is.

We will never be motivated to make true lasting change, to truly free ourselves from the prison of our masks and cultural dictates and find our own power and magic unless we allow ourselves to see the extent of what has been done to us, what we have allowed to happen to us.

Most of you know that this series of posts is leading up to a one day class. We will share all the details about the class very soon. For now just make a note of the date for the class, which is Saturday, September 20, in your calendar.
