Coming Full Circle!

 “The human soul can always use a new tradition. Sometimes we require them.”

My experience in Sisters, Oregon and The Healer’s Gathering has been transformational. Those on the path to growth, healing and transformation often understand that it is our response (reaction) to our environment that fosters the growth. For me, I watch for the resistance.

My first experience of this resistance was at the opening ceremony here which was performed by “Tat” Erik Gonzalez, Shaman and creator of Earth People’s United. For some reason I felt a sense of irritation and was uncomfortable. It took me a day later to understand what was happening.

In my early 20’s I was married to a Native American spiritual leader, Peter Campbell. My young children (from a previous marriage) grew up going to Pow Wows. Later, after Peter and I dissolved our legal marriage, I lead Sacred Ceremonies and a Medicine Wheel retreat. I went on to work as a mental health counselor with local Native children at the Healing Lodge of the Seven Nations.

I felt so alone at the Opening Ceremony because what was happening in the here and now (Ceremony) was my experience 30 years ago. I felt out of sync. What was new for many was the past for me. More recently I have been working with a group of Ascended Masters called the Lords of Karma. The work I do is often remote where I connect with the Lords and with people all over the world and do healing work. I become a conduit if you will, or a prayerful presence. It is all vibration and has a different feel about it than the powerful vibration of the drum.

Later when I shared my angst with my dear friend Katie Cavanaugh, I instantly became clear. My creativity now is to connect this powerful Sky Energy and Beings with the Earth Energy. It is not one or the other, but both. The ancients of the Earth and the Ancients of the Sky are not separate. We are all one.

Having had this experience I felt the connection of the Sky and Earth come together and in my own life, they merged into a balance.

This may sound “out there” so to put it in more personal terms, it means to balance my life. I will continue to connect with clients and students all over the world through the Internet, phone, Skype, Google Hangout, and remotely. I will do my energetic clearing, healing and psychic work. I will also do the grounded ceremony practices in my life such as walking the Sacred Spokane River daily, communicating with plants and trees, and bringing nature into my home all year long. 

What really happened in this Sacred Ceremony with “Tat” Erik Gonzalez is my perspective shifted a bit and the separation I experienced became a healing of “Oneness.” 

Note: Later, I was blessed to be with Doug and Katie, “Tat” Erik Gonzalez and his lovely wife Heddi, and their beautiful daughter Sylvia, while Doug, Katie and Tat played mostly original music by my friend, and award winning Singer/Songwriter, Katie Cavanaugh!

  1. To my Teacher/Sister/Friend, Sharing this weekend of connection, collaboration and empowerment was a journey on a clear path towards home. I am so honored to be with you, and you with me as we walked together with joy, compassion and love – even in our resistance and challenges. The winds of healing blew strong across the landscape of the HarmonyHouse. We stood together with the wind in our hair. Infinite Love & Gratitude, Katie Cavanaugh

    Another lovely post and beautiful illustration of how a shift in our perspective can dramatically change our reaction, our engagement and our beliefs about a situation. Thank you for sharing your journey here with us with such candor.
