The Memory of a Thing is the Song that it Sings

Wedeme tell us that they work with the memories that are stored inside us, inside our bones, inside our psyches, inside our hearts. They tell us the memory of a thing is the song that it sings. They liken this to the way we can hear the sound of the ocean in many shells. They tell us it is the memory of the ocean held within that shell that we hear when that happens. That is also how they hear us. They can “hear” us because they can hear the memory that we are singing. They say it is often a song that even we cannot hear, but they can hear it. I put “hear” in quotes because we must...

What is Prophecy?

These Times We Are Living In There are many 911 calls being made to spirit workers since the U. S. election in November 2016, from both practitioners and clients. Many people want to know what is happening on the spiritual planes with regard to current events and how to address it from that angle. The truth is, many of us are deeply traumatized by the past election cycle. At a time where we were hoping to be moving into peace and light (as was predicted all over the place in the 2012 transitional cycle), it looks as though we are instead plummeting into darkness. What do we do? Who is behind...

The One-Breasted Woman

  There is a shrine in the Dagara tradition that falls under the category of the Saazumwin. She is called The One-Breasted Woman. The Saazumwin are the ones who stretch between the Earth and the stars. They are the beings from the space above, the light beings, the star beings. They are cosmic and benevolent and can often be seen as what many call angels. (To learn more about the Saazumwin, see chapter 10 of my book, Notes from a Diviner in the Postmodern World: A Handbook for Spirit Workers) I was told very little about this shrine when I was first told to make it. I was told to make a...
