I attended the wonderful Unity Church in Santa Fe for the first time last Sunday and not only knew immediately that I would return, but also had it lead me to things and people I needed to be led to already. For example, there is a fellow medium there named Tom Newman who Rev. Brendalyn wanted to introduce me to last Sunday, but I was late for another meeting and needed to rush off. I’ve emailed him and we hope to chat this coming Sunday. His bio is super appealing on his site.
Then I found out that Unity was hosting a visit from Rama Inacio (who mentioned tonight he’s changed his name to Joshua after spirit’s urging following a bad car crash in January…something I could relate to). When I saw his offering tonight titled “Sound, Alchemy & Your Divine Blueprint” … and that it was only $25 …. I felt a strong urge to go. Many years ago at the Spiritualist Chapel of the Flowers in Van Nuys, CA, a British medium friend of mine named Eveliani Gilbert (Evelyn Chaneske) gave me the message that “you will be healed by sound”. I still clearly recall how hearing Tibetan monks in Taos in 1998 do throat singing made my whole body vibrate and tingle. Because I’ve been in a health crisis since April 11, 2018 with the horrendous worsening of my already bad head and neck pain, I wanted to see what Joshua’s sound healing evening would do.
Anyway, the session with Joshua tonight was LOVELY. He used a gong and didgeridoo to clear us of negative energy, then he had us do toning, and then he used crystal bowls mixed with his own voice to reconnect us to Source. I tingled almost nonstop, especially in my painful head and neck. At times, it got really strong. In fact, now back at home, I’m still having intermittent tingling in my head. The sounds I was exposed to tonight clearly did something to my entire body and energy field. It was palpable. And I got REALLY tired. I recall exhaling dramatically about 3 times like I was releasing something.
But what prompted this post was the BEAR.
Earlier today I hiked the Rio en Medio trail up to the pretty waterfalls in one of my favorite areas, Tesuque. (Posted pictures and videos on Instagram. Do a search for #rioenmedio and you should find my stuff.) About 1/2-2/3 of the way to the waterfalls, this woman with 3 dogs told me that someone had spotted a black bear today, so I should be on the alert. Now, that affected me during the hike, but I wasn’t consciously thinking of it tonight at Unity.
Anyway, when Joshua was toning the didgeridoo around my head tonight, I got this quick clairvoyant flash of the face of a bear. It felt significant but I didn’t really know what it could mean. Now, during my first trip to Taos in 1998, while talking to a Taos Pueblo woman about how I’d lost a beloved dreamcatcher earring in the Taos Ski Valley and was upset, but had this feeling I’d exchanged with the mountain and that now my dreams were planted and would come true (I’d taken a rock from the mountain beforehand)…she told me to stay put while she went into a back room. She came out with a turquoise bear pendant. She gave it to me saying that although I was white on the outside, I was her people on the inside. She specifically gave me a bear because she knew I lived in California at the time and bears are protectors of the West. That was seriously the best compliment I’ve ever received. I was crushed when, during my home’s 2012 burglary by 2 loser sisters, my bear pendant was taken. It seems that everything I love gets taken away by burglaries, muggings, etc. 😦
Thankfully, the bears necklace pictured above was somehow NOT stolen during the burglary. When I moved away from Los Angeles in 2005 or 2008, a friend named Sherye gave me this necklace as a going away present…not knowing about my prior bear gift. She was drawn to the bears for me. In fact, as I took the necklace out to photograph it tonight, she showed up quickly in spirit to say hello…signalling me with a dolphin. (Her guide was a dolphin named Namu.)
I decided to Google bears tonight to learn more about what they stand for in Native American tradition and others…and…WOW. Reading this site gave me the chills. It’s so eerily spot on I’m speechless.
Then I found more information that makes sense for my life here.
All I can say is that changes are happening and I’m being called to move in a different direction with my life. That bears represent women shamans and healing is not an accident.
Bear medicine-ly yours,
P.S. Joshua is taking a group to see John of God in Brazil in November. I want to go SO bad! But, it’s too pricey for me with all my medical bills. I have wanted to visit John of God for healing for years.
