I have now successfully facilitated three Ecstatic Medicine Vocal Circles! The third gathering was last night, and it filled my heart and soul full of so much gratitude and joy! A massive, undestroyable smile was etched across my face by the end of the gathering, and the gratitude from the participants was also so sweet and loving. I have so much to be grateful for, and so much gratitude within me! And in transformational times such as these, I feel it is so crucial to spill out the gratitude, because there truly is a love and peace centered earth in existence NOW and available to all! And for this we should all be grateful! And also, in my experience, I personally feel the living, breathing, tangible presence of the unified field of spiritual wholeness supporting my reality every single day, and without this 'Health Support System' from the spiritual or angelic realm, I would be falling on my face. I live because of this interwoven support system, and am completely indebted to it. Two years ago, I finally had the opportunity to be in ceremonial presence of my most esteemed and cherished shamanic teacher, Martin Prechtel. He had a massive amount of potency to the medicine he brought to all of us, but one thing still sticks with me. That is within the Mayan cosmology, of which he is modern culture hearth-bearer, there is a belief that all beings in the community must become indebted to each other in order to live. There is no idea of becoming debt-less, and the idea of having no debt is audacious to them. The idea is that we are all indebted to life, simply by virtue of being born a human and taking our first human footsteps. We are indebted to the earth, we are indebted to our mothers for carrying us, we are indebted to the plants and food for supporting us and offering us nourishment. And this indebtedness requires great humility and gratitude to all. This indebtedness and gratitude requires that we make offerings to the spirits to maintain wholeness of the interwoven fabric of life, of which we are indebted to.
