After burning our Sacred Union Despacho the ashes reveal a darkness to the right, the masculine side, as well as a darkness at the base, our connection to Mother Earth, Pachamama. A lesser darkness appears at the level of the belly or womb. It reveals areas not in harmony and balance with each other. Where actions and intent of masculine energy are in conflict with the connection to Mother Earth and wisdom of the womb.

This wounding plays out individually as well as collectively. The collective wound shows up in the soaring price of oil for instance. This non-renewable resource straight from the womb of Mother Earth is being depleted. The resultant action is to raise the price of gasoline. Is this action in right relationship to Mother Earth? Surely not a relationship of harmony or balance.

We can become disheartened and feel powerless if we see ourself simply in relationship to the oil company believing there is nothing we can really do to make a difference. But the truth is this relationship is also being played out somewhere in ourself. Where we are creating abuse? Where can we clean up our own act? Where are we out of balance?

As each individual does their own personal healing work it creates a change in the actions and behaviors that we bring to the world. It is each individual making those changes that begins to change the collective. It is not about going out and having to battle with the oil company per se but rather healing our own wounds, the places where we are not in right relationship with our Earth Mother. It is not a time to delude ourselves into feeling we are enlightened but rather to finding within what needs to be healed.

Looking to the relationship with our own physical body is a place to start our personal healing work. Just as Pachamama is a physical manifestation of divine feminine energy, so too is our physical body. Where is it we may be neglecting our body, abusing our body, polluting our body, harming our body? When we heal the relationship with our physical body we bring ourselves into right relationship with our physical Earth. The actions we take are then in harmony with the world in which we live.

This is what the ashes tell us.

AHO my friends! AHO!

Within each Soul lies a seed that holds the potential for its becoming. Just as the acorn holds within all it needs to grow into the mighty oak we too are born with everything we need to awaken fully into our potential.

Having cut the lower vibrational cords that no longer serve us in our last ceremony, we journey to retrieve the seed of our Soul to plant them in our next New Moon Despacho.

This is a journey to the womb of Mother Earth where the seed of all life springs forth. The journey of every seed is an instinctual call to Light that emerges from darkness.

For this journey you will need:

  • 20 – 30 minutes of uninterrupted time
  • Dark or dimly lit space to lie on your back as close to the Earth as you can
  • Pillows if needed  for under your head or beneath your knees for support
  • A blindfold or bandana to cover your eyes to take your journey deeper into darkness (optional)
  • A blanket to keep warm (optional)
  • Object from Nature to hold the essence of your journey

Once you retrieve this seed from the womb of Mother Earth you will be guided on your journey to plant this in the darkness of your belly. This seed will begin to inform you, awakening the call of your Soul. Dreamtime is a potent portal for Soul wisdom to come through. You may want a journal to record what comes to you in your dreams.

Once your journey is complete you will transfer the essence of what you receive to an object in Nature such as a flower, leaf, petal, twig or stone. Notice what images, thoughts, felt senses, knowings, colors or impressions have come through this journey. With your intention, and your exhale, you energetically transfer this information from your journey to an object in Nature by blowing this in with your breath. You then return this to the elements by burning in a fire, burying in the Earth or offering to a natural body of water. This aligns the calling of your Soul with the Universe and feeds your conversation with Spirit.

I offer this journey so the seeds of your Soul may be brought to our New Moon Despacho on January 23rd (more will be posted closer to ceremony). This ceremonial planting will birth the awakening of our Soul supported by the collective intent of all who share this journey.

Your Seed of the Soul Journey starts here. 

AHO my friends! AHO!
