Medicine Woman

Medicine Woman ~ Artist Unknown

 

6th Week of Autumn, Goddess of the week

This article is part of the Goddesses for Every Season Journey I have decided to take and I am following the book Goddesses for Every Season by Nancy Blair. A year long Journey to meet a different Goddess a week.

Medicine Woman is a healer, she is wisdom, she is a shaman. She trusts in divine timing, in the moon and the earth, in spirit. She knows that things that once were will be again, the cycle of life. Giving herself time to heal, to go within and look and feel her pain, to heal it. Listening to her body, she knows when to rest and recover. Knowing when to take action or just be still. She knows because she is connected to spirit and to this world. Living between the two in balance, always working on herself and what she needs to be in tune.

You too can be like Medicine Woman. To be connected, to be in balance. Take the time to go within, to look at your issues and your pains, to feel them and release them. Go with the ebb and flow of life. Clear your energy daily and take five minutes to just be still.

The days are getting even shorter now and the darkness is over taking. This is a great time to go within and connect to the darkness, the shadows and to be content. To connect to Medicine Woman, letting her show you how to heal yourself. Listening to your body, to your inner wisdom and spirit. To come out being renewed and reborn.

Meditation to connect with Medicine Woman

Laying or sitting down, take three deep breaths, relaxing your whole body. Hold your intention in connecting to Medicine Woman. You could say this in your head three times, ‘My intention is to connect with Medicine Woman.’

Imagine you are standing outside a cave. Look around, what do you see?

You then decide to enter the cave and walk into the big wide opening. You walk deeper and deeper into the cave. The walls have water dripping down and it starts to get cold and dark, but you feel safe here. A peaceful feeling, knowing you are meant to be here.

You then see a light up ahead and it starts to get brighter and warmer. It is a fire. By the fire is a woman. This is Medicine Woman.

She looks up and smiles at you. ‘Come’ she says and holds out her hand. You walk up to her and take her hand. This is where she takes you on a healing journey. You can ask her questions and have a conversation with her.

When you have finished your conversation etc, thank Medicine Woman for connecting. She then gives you a gift and says farewell. You then walk back out of the cave to where you began. When you are ready, take three deep breaths and come back to the room.

Write down your experience. What was the surrounding like outside the cave? What did Medicine Woman look like? What healing did she give you? What was her message? Did she answer your questions? What was the cave like? What was her gift to you?

My Journey with Medicine Woman

Connecting to Medicine Woman is a continuous journey for me. Medicine Woman is the healer within. I am my own healer. Going deep within, facing my shadows, releasing the old and healing from the past.

I have healed some of my issues and raised my vibration by clearing negative energy, but there is always more healing to do. Bit by bit, getting stronger, growing and learning. Healing the past to have a brighter happier future.

This week I connected just by sitting and being still. Asking Medicine Woman to connect with me and she did by giving me a message. ‘Be yourself. Know yourself. Know your body. Listen to your inner wisdom and your body and take the actions appropriate. Cleanse and clear your energy daily and you will stay connected and feel stronger.’ Simple by effective.

Medicine Woman is here to help you heal deep wounds, to look at your shadows. To help you listen to your inner wisdom and what your body is telling you it needs. Working with Medicine Woman will help you become your own healer, for we are all healers but we just need some guidance along the way, she will give this to you.
