Cualli Tonalli this day Acatl with the guardian Tezcatlipoca the ancestral smoky mirror. The moon phase waxing crescent - to refine. The heat emanates from the sun, and other stars to give us power. We See from the bamboo that grows abundantly the true essence of the stars, especially the big star that gives us life. Coronal flares are a burst of this energy able to take out our technology and throw everything into a different kind of balance. The first fire, the reason we exist. Reed, or bamboo is also a symbol of righteousness and nobility. from this concept we have the power of the judicial priest. Our god is the true embodiment of this energy. We must be devout to our god much like the story of Abraham who wrestled with his dark and light and ultimately won, but was tempted to destroy his most beloved child under the guise of direction from his God. In the end he passed his test holding the symbol of Acatl forever in his totem. Tezcatlipoca is the trickster energy behind this story. A second guessing and twist behind all major learning bringing attention to whether it was indeed God asking Abraham to kill his son, or the darkness and the ultimate battle within. MANY fail this test and under the guise or direction from God, demolish their own lives and the lives of others with self proclaimed status and delusion.
The power today is Quetzaltototl, the quetzal who represents the power behind this evolution of spirit. Once the balance returns to the human and the inner struggle is achieved the illumination comes this is the power for today. Illumination after our major struggles are complete and we rise with the gifts of inner enlightenment.
The lord of the night, Miclantecuhltli the god of shadows who rules the northernmost dimension of the underworld. This place is the darkness we face as a right of passage and though stories such as Abraham are a horrible initiation of Acatl, we see that those who live a life untrue to their inner being are just as burdensome and more elusive and subtle. Tonight, Miclantecuhtli asks us to listen to our souls calling and focus in on our truth and identify what is God's will and what is our will stemming from defects of character; ego, selfishness, & fear.

"The baby blessing was one of my favorite parts of the whole shower!"
I attended last year’s Ancestral Healing Arts workshop at Mt. Shasta and it was more than I could have ever expected. Sarah was a great leader and facilitator. I didn’t know how much healing I would receive from attending this workshop. We laughed, we cried, we shared our stories in a safe container. We learned how to set our 4 directional altars and we delved deeply into our family stories and personal healing. I plan to attend this year’s workshop in Ashland. I highly recommend working with Sarah.
“I had the honor of attending this ancestral healing workshop last Summer at the Goddess Temple in Ashland with this dear spirit healer. The whole experience was a powerful catalyst for some much needed changes & healing in my life.
I highly recommend this weekend retreat with Sarah where she will utilize the power of the four directions and various folk healing techniques to bring about any spiritual, emotional or energetic healing you may need at this time.
Sarah brings an open deer heart, compassion and a potent understanding of her medicine tools to each of her sessions where you will feel safe, and safely held in a good circle.“ ~ Cihuatochtli Denai Fuller
