I started writing blogs again! Now I truly feel like I am back into the swing of things.

I am so excited that she enjoyed my work and I am proud to say that now I am a listed practitioner in her website. You can find my listing here. Sandra encourages for you to read About Shamanic Practitioners so that you are better informed when you do seek one.

This month is also special because I will be hosting my first Fire Ceremony during the Spring Equinox. I am so excited and I am so looking forward to it. Now you can also visit mt Events Calendar.

Spring Equinox Community Fire Ceremony

img_4365

Fire is transforming and purifying. It provides the way for you to let go of the trials and tribulations you have had so that you can be renewed and have a fresh start.

During a fire ceremony, you will take the time to honor the lessons you have learned and to leave behind the old beliefs that no longer serve you by giving them to the Spirit Fire. In this manner fire will release you from these old patterns and beliefs facilitating emotional, mental and soul healing.

So as we awaken from our winter slumber and start the new season lets do so with a fresh start. Come and join me in celebration!

The ceremony will start with a meditative time for you to create your “spirit arrow” which is a burnable offering made from suitable materials (no metal, crystals) and it is typically embellished (but does not have to be) small stick which represents whatever beliefs or lessons that you are honoring in order to shed them. Then the fire ceremony will commence there will be drumming, rattling and dancing. When you are ready, you will throw your spirit arrow into the fire and give the fire an gratitude offering of tobacco and herbs. Once everyone has cast into the fire their spirit arrow the ceremony will conclude.
