A note from Rutury:
Que Tuma Aku. Greetings Dear Friends,
Tatewari, Grandfather Spirit. We open our hearts to your healing which brings us wisdom and knowledge from all corners of the Universe.
In mid March, I had a profound lucid dream featuring my sister Jaichima, who many of you know passed away almost 6 years ago. My first thought was to keep the dream to myself as it felt very personal, but as soon as I thought of that more dreams followed where Jaichima was indicating to me in more than one way that the dream was intended for everyone we know, as well as for those who had never met her. She continues to work with all of them by their side.
This is the dream:
Jaichima and I were walking towards an enormous round tower which had beautiful stained glass windows and some parts of the building were left open where the wind was flowing in and out. Before we entered into the building we were greeted by two females who walked with us for a short distance, and then Jaichima was asked by both of them to whisper a code word that only she knew into a hole in the wall of the building. The elongated door opened and once we stepped inside we saw a floor above us, and below us there was another huge area that looked like a forest with trees, gardens, vegetables and well maintained paths. Jaichima pulled me towards the windows so I could see the beautiful landscape everywhere all around us, inside and out. Then I started to feel fear as I sensed the building was gently moving sideways. I was feeling like an earthquake was coming but I continued to stay focused and present with my sister. We walked a short distance and entered into a room where the only lights were candles. I looked to my left and saw people sitting on the floor in a meditation position and all of them were wearing maroon and yellow robes. I assumed they were monks. To my right there was another group of people gathering who were wearing simple white clothes. They were protecting someone special in the middle of the group and I saw that it was Gandhi. He seemed to know Jaichima and said hello as we passed by. We continued to walk down a long corridor that eventually ended at a round door. We entered a room where there was a gathering of people from all over the world. There were young people and elders, males and females, and some of the people were wearing traditional and ceremonial outfits appearing to represent their tribes and communities. Among this crowd I also saw many people we had worked with and had known during the almost 40 years Jaichima and I worked together doing individual sessions and workshops.
Jaichima reminded me to pay attention to the fact that every time we went through a door or entered a space the door not only remained open but seemed to disappear, leaving one room open after another. Then Jaichima and I started looking for our assigned seats in the crowded room. She told me that they had our names on them, and when we finally found our seats and were about to sit down, an usher out of nowhere appeared and said to us “Where have you been? People are waiting for you guys”. Apparently we were to perform a ceremony, which I did not know about and had not prepared for, and as always Jaichima and I were running late! I turned to my sister and said, “Are we ever going to be on time one of these days?” With a sweet smile she whispered into my ear and told me “All will be okay Rutury”.
My sister and I walked up to the stage and she began by sharing messages from our tribe. After about one hour of talking she started to pray and invited all the participants to come closer to her so she could bless them. Out of thin air manifested seeds and she put them into each person’s hands. Some participants did not know what to do with these seeds and others held them as if they were precious gems. When she completed her ceremony she said to everyone “My seeds are now your seeds. Do what you want to do with them”.
She came off the stage and came down to the floor and started dancing with everyone in the crowd, inviting them to join her in celebration of new beginnings. Most of them were joining in, and people who were there for the first time and had never met her were deeply moved by Jaichima’s unconditional love as they began to dance with her.
Right at that moment I heard a loud noise and I woke up. I checked my phone and it was exactly 3:17 am. I was reminded that Jaichima’s birthday was March 17th …
Looking forward to our next ceremony
Love and Blessings
A note from Nahwi:
Spring…Rebirth…Coming out of the darkness
All of these things, and more, are a part of this new season. In so many cultures and so many religions it is a sacred reminder to us all that there is life and there is joy in life if we take the time to pause and see, smell, taste and enjoy it.
Even in Arizona it is an awaking of the soul and the soil. I have some quotes that resonate in me and I hope you don’t mind if I share them with you to celebrate this miracle of Spring.
From “The stony Garden by Theodore Roethke “Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light.”
From The Exclamation Mark by Anton Chekhov “The snow has not yet left the earth, but spring is already asking to enter your heart. If you ever recovered from a serious illness, you will be familiar with the blessed state when you are in a delicious state of anticipation and are liable to smile without any obvious reason. Evidently that is what nature is experiencing just now.”
These quotes came from a newsletter I receive from The Joseph Campbell Foundation, “ Mythblast” This article was written by Bradley Olson Ph.D
This is a time of new beginnings and growth, and I for one plan to participate in that!
