Fire Cleansing: Discovering Immunity

Fire Cleansing: Discovering Immunity
This is the story of how I found true immunity, as a human and as a shaman, and set myself free from the ‘Black Magic’ of emotional poison and vexed stories that can contaminate our internal world…  EYES TO THE UNSEEN:It was a beautiful Saturday in Descanso, California. Madre Sarita had a full class of healing students and this weekend was all about Fire Cleansing. I was excited to receive her teaching again....

A Tale of Two Minds

A Tale of Two Minds
This is the tale of two minds, The Domesticated Mind and The Soul Mind, and how, through the Toltec practice of Dreaming, they came into one. So what the heck is the Domesticated Mind, the Soul Mind or this thing called Dreaming? Well, as you may know, I had the privilege of a direct apprenticeship with don Miguel Ruiz, author of the Four Agreements, and his mother, Madre Sarita, renowned Toltec Curandera. So...

Communion-ication ~ Part II

Communion-ication ~ Part II
In part, direct communication relies on the messenger’s communion with themselves and with the intent of their own words. In learning the art of ‘channeling’ with Mother Sarita, I experienced my own words in a way I never thought possible. After raising our vibration through meditation and prayer, we would sit in silence together until she felt the presence of what she called my ‘Spirit Guide’.  At this point, whether I was ready...

Communion-ication

Communion-ication
Let’s put the communion back into communication. I began translating for Mother Sarita and her clients after a mere two weeks of working with her and with only a handful of Spanish vocabulary. She told me I could and so I did. I put all of my attention into her, our eyes locked in a steady gaze, and the words began to flow out of my mouth.  Though I could hear her, I...

Rebecca's Memoir - Chapter 1

A new chapter emerges from an old story in which now I feel as a ghost, returning to a life that is no longer mine.  Was it ever mine to claim or was it a gift lent to a young girl in search of her truth?  In all certainty it was a gift; a gift of many gifts.  Like a Chinese puzzle box, each compartment was a treasure which revealed the key to...

Rebecca's Memoir - Chapter 2

I remember the first time I sat and gazed into her eyes in that tiny healing room in San Diego, California.  Like the room, her little body didn’t seem big enough to produce the amount of light radiating from her presence.  I recognized her eyes instantly.  They accompanied my dreams on many a cold night in the previous Vermont Winter:  A mirror reflecting not the young face of my youth, but the sun-worn...

Rebecca's Memoir - Chapter 4

That North Star led me back to my dear friends in Vermont where I took a farming job up the road from our house.  It was here that I met my first teacher.  It came not as one person, but as a group of people who welcomed me into their meditation circle.  I joined them for a brief time, learning their chosen technique of meditation.  And it certainly was a technique!  It was...

Rebecca's Memoir ~ Chapter 5

Though I didn’t know it, agreeing to travel with my Aunt Maria would put me on a direct path to my teacher, Sarita.  At first, all I knew was that the purpose of Maria’s trip was to intensify her apprenticeship with a man named don Miguel Ruiz.  Since she was a dancer, I made the assumption that Miguel was a dancer as well.  I even went so far as to daydream of somehow...
