A Tarot Shamanic Journey

Grandfather of Feathers

Third Eye Chakra for psychic vision..

Messenger from my Third Eye.

I asked for help from the Tarot deck to understand why I have so much difficulty keeping my lungs clear and dry.  Then I pulled a card.

In the Healing Earth Tarot, the suit called Feathers speaks from the 3rd eye chakra in the middle of our foreheads.  This chakra is associated with psychic abilities, especially clairvoyance or “clear seeing.”

Grandfather of Feathers is a Native American elder and a shamanic healer.  His animal guide is an owl, and that really called to me when I drew this card because many years ago I discovered that I have owl as one of my animal guides.  Owls can “see in the dark” and people with owl energy often see things that other people don’t notice.  That description resonates for me because I’ve always been aware of things that others denied.

Grandfather of Feathers is a shamanic healer, and since my spiritual path is to heal myself on all levels as part of my spiritual ascension, I was drawn to connect strongly with the energy of this image.

So after reading the description of the card, I closed my eyes to do my regular meditation practice, which comes from Siddha Yoga.  But before I could even begin, I saw Grandfather of Feathers standing before me.  He told me his name is “Two Feathers” and he’d come to take me on a journey.

I’ve never done a shamanic journey on my own and have never studied shamanism.  So I was astounded when Grandfather’s owl invited us both to sit on his back for the journey.  The owl was huge and Grandfather and I were tiny by comparison.  To my continued surprise, it was felt quite comfortable and safe to ride the owl.  It also felt very, very real!

THE JOURNEY

We traveled through a long corridor like a worm hole similar to the ones on Dr. Who, only it was brown with just barely any light.  The owl soon emerged with us into a sun-lit open outdoors area and  landed in a tree.  All 3 of us sat together on a branch to watch the scene below.

A little Native American girl about age 10 was sitting in the grass admiring some wild flowers.  She was totally connected with them and had no sense of separation.  Then a boy who was older came up to her and, seeing her love of the flowers, picked one to give to her.  With his hand outstretched, holding the flower towards her, he was insulted by her reaction.  “Why did you kill the flower,” the girl cried, and ran away.

The scene shifted to a teepee in which the girl father tells her that the chief’s son, the boy in the earlier scene, wants to marry her.  The girl shakes her head, “No.  I want to be a healer.  I want to study with the Shaman and healer of women.”  Her father is furious.  He’s more interested in political connections and how her marriage will honor the family than he is in his daughter’s happiness or in honoring her life path.

The girl runs away from home, finds a healer to be her teacher, and becomes an apprentice, leaving her father angry and frustrated.

Two Feather and I ride the owl again, back through the time tunnel.   We arrive in my current lifetime during my late teens.  I have a clear memory of the incident I was shown, but I’ve never been able to remember words my father spoke to me.  I just know that after that incident I completely rejected the idea of marriage for me in this lifetime.  My father had placed an energy block in my body that precluded me being distracted by romantic affairs, sexual adventures, and marriage as a lifestyle.

So in this life, my father honored my request and helped me to become a facilitator of healing.  In this life time, I had chosen to be on my own, and my father assisted me to fulfill my choice.

THE HEALING

Two Feathers then said to me, “You have a block in your second chakra keeping your Kundalini (Life Force) energy from rising to your lung area to keep the lungs dry enough.”

Two Feathers guided me to my second chakra where I could see a block that looked like a gigantic stone.  It was as if I was standing at the foot of the Rock of Gibraltar.  I wondered to myself how I could possibly remove this block that towered over me.

Two Feathers handed me a large, old-fashioned key that one might use to open a big, heavy door.  I could see a large keyhole far above me,  but I didn’t think I could reach it.

“You will reach it if you decide to open the block,” the Shaman told me.

I made my decision and reached up towards the keyhole with the key .  The keyhole moved downwards towards my hand.  I put in the key, turned it, and the rock moved, opening like a doorway.

We stepped through the opening into my second charka area.  The second chakra is connected to the emotional body.  It is related to the water element because emotions need to flow like water.

There before me was a gigantic lake.

Two Feathers continued, “The lake of water is too large.  Your Kundlini will now be able to reduce the size of the lake using the Fire of your first ckahra.”

Immediately, an enormous dragon flew into around the lake while teams of healers rapidly create enormous piles of wood and debris that needs to be purified by the fire.  The dragon sets these all aflame and they burn brightly.

Two Feathers gives me these instructions:  “Meditate every day using your mantra.  Your mantra will feed the dragon/snake (Kundlini) energy so it can continue it’s journey up your central channel, and so that it will behave plenty of fire energy to keep the flames going in your second chakra.”

And then I was back in my house.

THE RESULTS

I’ve been checking in on my second chakra from time to time over the last few days, and the fires are still going.   There’s also a huge amount of steam coming off the lake, and much dark smoke because the steam is wetting the wood and debris that needs to burn.

As I meditate each day using my mantra, Om Namah Shivah (which means, “I offer respect to my Higher Self”), I sense the dragon/cobra called Kundalini Shakti feeding on it.  Today, for the first time ever, I experienced the Kundalini reach my throat and mouth area.  These are all signs of a successful healing with Two Feathers.

Before You Ascend, Descend to Your Creative Center

The Creative Chakra in Your Belly

 

In the previous blog, I explained where the Root Chakra gets it name and how to GROUND yourself fully into the Heart of Mother Earth so that her Divine Love will support your Ascension Process and your life as a Master of Manifestation.

Now I am going to tell you about the Second Chakra and how connecting it to your Heart Center will change your understanding of yourself as the Divine Creator.

The Creativity Chakra

Creativity ChakraLocated just below your navel is the chakra often called the Sexual Chakra or the Belly Chakra.  It is associated with procreation, sexuality, and the emotional body.

Emotions are like water.  If you mix colored dyes indiscriminately into a bowl of water, evenually the color you will end up with is muddy brown.

Similarly, if your emotions are swirling and whirling around, without clarity and without focus, all jumbled together, and if you feel that you are a victim to your emotions – that you can’t understand them or control them, then your second chakra needs attention.

Lower vibrational emotions, such as anger, rage, resentment, hate, shame, embarassment, anxiety, loneliness, lust, jealousy, and so on, are all rooted in fear and are all distractions from our spiritual life path. 

Furthermore, they can not be controlled using energies from the same level of frquency as the one from which these emotions originate. 

To cleanse and balance the Second Chakra, there are two approaches.  One is to bring the Heart Qualities, including Divine Love, down into this chakra while also bringing up to the Chakra the Divine Love of Mother Earth. 

The other is to bring the limiting emotions directly to the Heart Center while being supported by the Divine Love of Mother Earth.  Both methods are required to create balance and harmony in our Emotional Body.

Unlimited Creativity For Limitless Creators

The Second Chakra is the Creativity Chakra.  It is where we can find the creative energies that empower us to live as Divine Manifestors on the physical plane.

Remember, the Law of Attraction says that what you focus on expands.  If you focus with fear, you will get fearful creations.  If you focus with Love, your creations will be filled with Love.

What do you want in your world?  Fear or Love?  It’s your choice, because you are the one creating it.  If you want all your creations to be expressions of Divine Love, then your Heart Center and your Creativity Center must be working together in harmony and balance.

When your Creativity Chakra is cleansed and balanced and then fully integarted with your Heart Center, you will have access to tremendous power to create your reality in a fully conscious, Love-filled way.

Namaste,
Nedda
