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.

DOING THE SOUL RETRIEVAL

 

PART II:  The First Healing Session.

 

I began the energy healing session by calling on my guides and by asking to be a clear channel, open to all that would take place.  I then invited Cleopatra’s energy to come between my hands for the healing session.  Emme also showed up to comfort and assist her friend.

I purposely had no expectations other than that whatever took place would be for the highest good of all concerned.  I begin all healings this way because the guides I work with are expert healers and they know what needs to be done.  Sometimes they show me what they are doing.  Other times, they don’t.

My job is to hold the space and coordinate/facilitate the healing team.  While I also use certain techniques I have been taught, many times I am just holding the space and setting overall and specific intentions for healing.

It was a bit of a surprise to me when I was told that Cleo’s healing would begin with modifications to her DNA akashic layer, the etheric template for her physical body, and the akashic record in her auric field.  (When my guides tell me that they can do these things, I’ve learned to just accept it and go with whatever happens.  The results are often quite astonishing.)

Very quickly, the guides showed me that, at the most basic level, Cleopatra had experienced a past-life trauma during the period in European history known as the Reformation.  During several hundred years, the Catholic Church killed more than 3 million humans (mostly women) and some unknown number of animals in its attempt to wipe out all independent thought and indigenous spiritual systems.   The Church tortured and killed heretics, including shamanic healers and mid-wifes who were connected with nature and used herbs and other natural approaches to heal and live in harmony with the Earth Kingdoms.  These people were accused of witchcraft and heresy, and their animal compansions, called “familiars” were also tortured and killed.

According to my guides, Cleopatra had been a feline in at least one lifetime where she had been tortured, set on fire, and experienced a lingering and painful death.  A part of her spirit had been locked into the pain and trauma of that event.  This aspect needed to be released, healed, and integrated back into Cleo’s Consciousness.  I was told that we were going to do a type of soul retrieval for Cleo.

When the being came forth into our awareness, she was screaming and howling with pain and fear.   Her fur was all standing up on end; her pupils dialated.  Her fur seems clumped and burnt and part of her skin was bald and burned.

Emme and Cleo began immediately to lick (groom) the spirit, who immediately began to quiet down.  It was as though two feline mothers were healing a sick kitten.  The spirit’s fur began immediately to change back to normal.

A some point, the guides said that the first level of reintegration of the spirit was complete and that they would begin working to repair Cleo’s “brain matrix”.  The matrix for the body is an energy structure or webbing on which the physical aspects of the body are built.  This step, I was told, is necessary for the brain functioning to be restructured so that Cleo would not need to hide whenever something in her environment changed.

Other guides began working on the DNA repair.  One level of this was to eliminate damage from the vaccines that had triggered Cloe’s behavioral patterns.  Another level was to clear from the DNA the memories of the past life experience that had been brought to the surface by Cleo’s interaction with Chloe (the new cat in the family).

Eventually, I was told that the brain matrix was ready for re-activation.

Another message came through that Cleopatra needed to detox mercury from her physical body.  This would not be part of the healing and would require a different process altogether.

I was asked to do a chakra cleanse for Cleo, which is a technique I am familiar with and have done many, many times.  When we got to Cleo’s third chakra, the power center located in the area of the stomach, I was told that the chakra needed repair, and the teams who know how to do that showed up. 

When I got to Cleo’s third eye, the psychic center, Cleo asked me not to do anything there because she wasn’t ready.  I alway honor what the being receiving the healing tells me, so I stopped working with her chakras at that point.  My sense was that Cleo’s third eye had been very open and active during the lifetime when the trauma had occurred and that working with it on this day would be too much for Cleo.

The healing session took an hour, at the end of which a great many things had been accomplished.  I urged Cleo to rest for the next day or so and the session was ended.

In the next blog installment, I will share with you what Jennifer
told me about Cleo’s behavior and appearance
after the session.
