Grandmother Owl Speaks

Good day dear Humans! I am Grandmother Owl and it is my pleasure to share my medicine with you today. My species exists on your planet on all continents and climates in more than 200 varieties. We rest during the day and hunt at night. We are night birds! We are known for our excellent vision, hearing and flying abilities and we are very efficient hunters. We have special wings that allow us to fly silently and some of us have asymmetrical ear placement which allows us to register minute differentials in sound so we can locate prey accurately at night. How cool is that!?

As you read the story of our form, you can see that our serious demeanor displays wide – eyed penetrating vision and a relentlessly vigilant presence. Our heads and eyes are rounded like the Full Moon and as creatures of the night, we resonate with the lunar cycles and feel the primal undercurrents which ebb and flow in nature. We are very sensitive and wise and we are often the first to know what is arising before it happens. We like to live alone! You will never see us flying in flocks like many of the other Bird Tribes. We would rather spend our days in deep meditation and soul travel in the mystical realms.Our intimate connection with the wind, water, ground, fire, and ghost spirits gives us our power. When we rest inside a tree trunk during the day, we merge with the tree and feel the nourishment of Mother Earth’s womb through its roots and the glory of Father Sun’s rays through its leaves and limbs. At night, we become one with the wind and fly swift and silent like a ghost! We flow like the water and seize our prey with fiery passion! Are we not beautiful?

If you would allow yourself to dream into our form, you could experience the most profoundly mystical secrets of nature! These secrets I speak of are only hidden from you when you are afraid to claim the glorious freedom of unbridled imagination. You are the authors of your reality and your lives will be bland and boring if do not follow your fascinations and let your imaginations run wild and free like a Gazelle!

You humans are funny creatures! You often feel that your bodies imprison your spirits and that you can only be free after you die. I tell you now that this is a lie! It is only your minds that turn your bodies into a birdcage around your spirits!

In order to remedy this dilemma you need only delete all the unnatural limiting beliefs from your memory banks. Stay silent and still and use your Owl vision to peer into the dark recesses of your inner landscape. Whenever you identify a negative belief, swoop down on it, seize it with your big strong Owl talons and devour it! As you do so, your mental body (the middle layer of the aura) will become increasingly transparent, crystalline and serene and will no longer short circuit the connection between the emotional (inner layer) and spiritual (outer layer) components of your auric field. Eventually, you will no longer even think in terms of separate components because you will become unified and feel your unity with all that is. Then you will fly swift and silent like an Owl, guided by the true natural instincts of your eternal essence!

I am Grandmother Owl and I have enjoyed sharing my medicine with you today. I bid you good life dear Humans!

I Couldn’t Have Done It Without Ya Ma!

Mom & I on ferry to Governor's Island NYC, Autumn 2009.

I am very fortunate. My mother is 89 yrs. old and has a clear mind and good health. She is a retired nurse practitioner, having dedicated her life in service to those who suffer. My father (R.I.P.) and she were responsible and intelligent parents. They did their best to make sure that my two sisters and I had everything we needed and we had a really good childhood.
I have a lot of respect for my parent’s generation. They lived through The Great Depression and WW2 and then they gave birth to my generation – the Baby Boomers. When my generation got into our teens, many of us became very rebellious. I was one of the first “hippies” in my town. My cohorts and I worshiped The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix. We grew our hair long, played in rock bands and got high on weed and LSD – Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘n Roll! They called it the “generation gap”…..”Don’t trust anyone over 30”, we used to say. I took my parents for granted and judged them. I didn’t begin to really appreciate them until I got into my 30’s, and the older I get, the more I love them.
Mom’s parents were both M.D’s, her sister was a nurse, her brother was an M.D., her brother’s son became an M.D., and my younger sister became a nurse. Healing was always in my blood, but that healer DNA didn’t fully light up until I was well into middle age. I had worked as a cook for most of my life but I got tired of it and began searching for something new. I read about Reiki in a book and got my first treatment at Louisiana’s Zinn’s Reiki circle. I loved it and decided to become a Reiki Master. The rest is history…..
Are you proud of me Ma? I’m a late bloomer but I finally got it right! Read the testimonials on my website Ma – they’re saying I’m good! I’ve ARRIVED and I couldn’t have done it without ya! I LOVE YOU!
