Hina na ho ho henay, Hina na ho ho henay, this line from the familiar song by Susan Aglukark ran through my head as I presented myself to the guides and grandmothers. My question to them was, “what would you tell me about menopause”? They were silent except for the song, waiting and watching what I would do. “Is she afraid to get out of that chair do you think? Can she see us here?” “Singing is what is needed - vibration and waves.”
I was originally asked by a health magazine to write about one of my Reiki experiences and this resulted in the story entitled "Small Miracles`" detailing my Mother's experience with Reiki. After its publication, my father, who has been telling stories all of his life, encouraged me to write more. My writing is a way of teaching which feels natural to me following my long history as a technical writer and software teacher. I write when spirit moves me to do so about topics that spirit presents. I hope you will enjoy reading them and find some small nugget of gold for yourself.
When I arrived at the hospital things were already in progress: mom was naked and clearly in labour. The barriers of "who can see me naked" had fallen away as the process of birthing a child stepped up. My own experience with this was now eight years old but I remembered the process of going into my inner world with every new contraction. Almost like the birth happened from the inside out - which I suppose is totally appropriate for both mom and baby.
"You are from the Woman Nation - that requires no further introductions."
Women are powerful. Ask anyone who has raised children, or worked two jobs, or pulled an all nighter to meet a deadline at work. Where does that power come from? It comes from the inside - from our spirit.
