Cualli Tlanessi this beautiful Summer Solstice arriving on the beginning of trecena Ehecatl, Wind with the guardian of the trecena Chantico - The Goddess of Fire. Represented in the Codex Borgia this trecena is a time of ceremonial fire and water. The white heron or egret is depicted and ceremonial cacao is ingested with reverence. Chantico is the woman inside the house and the one from the fire within the home. She is bringing warmth inside our homes both physical and structural.
The day is also Ehecatl with the Guardian Quetzalcoalt, the feathered snake or the sower. Moon phase, Waning cresent - Reflect. The longest day of our calendar year and the beginning of summer. The sun is at it's zenith at noon today and so supercharged is our prayer at this time. Utilizing the energies of ehecatl or wind we can magnify our prayers. Ehecatl is the divine breathe given at birth. it is our everything for without it we cease existence. Those standing at the east altar in wholeness are charging the future with the embodiment of eldership and a balance that is essential for our collective future.
The power today is is Xuihuitzilli the turquoise hummingbird. Today hummingbird with the energies represent a great responsibility for others to follow. Age is a number. How long we study is a number. True evolution of all of our subtle bodies depends on other factors. How do we behave in our day to day. What have we mastered in our maturity. Is it jealousy, vanity, empathy? Turquoise hummingbird thrusts us forward in this school of life to illuminate how we behave. Sometimes what looks from the the outside like a blemish becomes an asset that elevates our soul to its highest zenith.
The lord of the night, Pilzintecuhtli, The solar youthful lord, depicted with seven circles and a flower. He is the essence of sacred plants and especially the plants that heal our psyche. It is the night of looking up to the stars and planets especially given our solstice.
"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
