In the most recent journey I had, I saw a sky of clouds and pyramids floating, with a big white arm coming through, lightning filled the sky and shattered the ground around me. Leaving me on a rock with my wolf companion. A black raven appeared with his wings spread, then pecking btwn his feet at seeds. Four days later I found a Raven’s remains at the side of the road, it took me circling the block several times to work up the courage to take it home. I didn’t know what I would do with it but I knew I had to, my heart opened up as if to say a big YES. I took the raven and the next day saw my shaman. He said that because I had the vision of the Raven with it’s wings opened it could mean that I have permission to use it’s wings.
I went home and had a ceremony in my front yard, lit sage, thanked the Raven and cut off the wings, head and feet and buried the body in sage and flowers. It was in perfect condition and I’m very proud of myself for going through with it. It’s now sleeping in a bed of borax and sea salt till it’s time to take him out.
With this journey as well, my shaman saw a black haired thunder horse to help me keep my energy levels. Since this journey happened I’ve been healthier than I’ve ever been. My energy levels are through the roof and I’ve let go of a lot of things that would have prevented that for a long time.
Every single journey I’ve taken has helped me remove layers, shed the old ways, like the snake shed’s its skins. Now I’m walking with my shadow, really able to hold it close and not abandon it like I had in the past and I feel that since I have started walking this path that I am walking with integrity, grace and vulnerability and I am so grateful that it’s real and authentic and so grateful to have gone through it and out the other side.
My poem to this journey:
Embrace the shadow, illuminate the dark, follow the loud footsteps of the thunders. Their claps are deafening, their large scrupulous eyes see through it all, no place to turn but inwards, walk w integrity, grace and vulnerability.
