-----------------------The Journey Medicines----------------------
This journey is an invitation to the Celestial forces of the New Moon and the Elements to come and cleanse our spirit so we may seed our intentions for the months to come.
--Vibrational Sound Bath w/ Crystal Bowls--
Used for thousands of years as an aid to meditation and well being singing bowls are a gateway to mental and physical harmony. Specific bowls will be played to activate our chakras and bring our entire being into balance, preparing and opening us for our work with the medicines shared.
--Fire of Tranformation and Rebirth Ceremony--
As we enter into this new cycle we take the time to place our intention on our goals that will help us transform our thoughts into right action, so we may enjoy the fruits of this new cycle
--Purification and cleansing with herbs and perfumes--
All spiritual paths have cleansing and purifying rituals. Before a person can go through a healing session, or heal another, he must cleanse himself from all bad feelings, negative thoughts, bad spirits or negative energy. Physical and spiritual cleansing helps the healing energies to come unobstructed. The Clean Smoke is the oldest and most popular of the shamanic medium, to purify thoughts, feelings and spirits. Smoke reestablishes balance and harmony by transforming energy through fire and purifying it with the essence of a plant. The aromas influence our astral body. The sense of smell acts primarily on the subconscious level, the smell nerves are directly connected with the most primitive part of our brain, the limbic system.
The drum is an ancient therapeutic approach that uses rhythm to promote healing and self expression. Recent research has begun to verify the therapeutic effects of ancient rhythms. They indicate that drumming accelerate physical healing, stimulating the immune system and producing a sense of well-being, releasing emotional trauma, and reintegrating oneself. The drum produces clear states of trance and levels of deep relaxation. It is also a means of connecting with the farthest points of the energy grid. The beat aligns us with the forces of harmony. Harmony is a universal attribute of consciousness, and it helps us travel through the space of the heart.
According to many traditions, sounds and music have a profound psychophysical effect. In the specific case of shamanism, songs of power accompany ceremonies to evoke guardian spirits, healing spirits, to intensify energy, to alter consciousness, to allow the mind free from undesirable thoughts, to provide visions. Rhythm and words establish communication with nature, releasing, spontaneously, the energy to heal and raise consciousness.
--Application of Sananga Extract--
Sananga, is an eye drop extracted from the root of an Amazonian plant, which broadens the night vision, sharpens the perception, promotes expansion of consciousness and provides a greater connection with forest beings.
--Application of Rapé--
Rapé is a powder made from plants, among them the main one is tobacco, and it is blown through an instrument of power (Tepi) in the nostrils. According to Ancient Amazonian wisdom Rapé puts us in touch with the healing spirits of the forest that bring us power and strength. Also good for problems such as: sinusitis, headache, congested nose.
--Talking Stick Ceremony--
It is a piece of consecrated wood to present the sacred point of view. In this ritual no word can be used that does not represent the truth. Only the one with the stick in their hand speaks, the others remain silent with open ears and an open heart. It is a way of honoring the wisdom of others. According to my teacher Leo Artese, healing is based on this awareness. S/mnHe who speaks the truth is healing. But it is a healing for the whole group because each one is individually listened to, in silence and reverence the participant has an understanding of the value of his word.
