Healing Song: Mother
Visceral, multi-sensorial overwhelming on the everylittletinymolecularcelllevel I feel this weight. This strength. I am one with this tower of mothers.
How are we to know what is best for a place except by listening to those who live alongside and with the land? Biodiversity and the well-being of ALL KIN in that area needs to be considered.
There is really nothing in the Finnish forest or waters that is dangerous. We bring that with us
Yesterday a walk through forest to river. This forest lies between our place and the river. I was looking for a remoter place by the water for ceremony work. I know Ahlström Family/Ltd had been around in the area thinning, yet, well, how do four-leggeds get through this? If we have ”every ones rights” toContinue reading “There is really nothing in the Finnish forest or waters that is dangerous. We bring that with us”
Birthing a shamanic healing drum

Mother Earth, the land, the trees, all beings swimming flying digging running…Continue reading “There is no separation”
Virgin – Impi
Olen Impi. Olen Ilmatar. Olen hän. Olen tähti. Olen hän mikä on itseni. En ole nainen ja en ole mies. Minulle on kohtu. Valta halua käyttää sen.

Olen Impi,Continue reading “Virgin – Impi”
Cleaning out the computer. I am looking for those small writings or longer ones that have gone on that misbehaving adult called FB and which I could post here also. Rather, I would like to have a more timely place to write, share, sing, digress, get to the point, ponder, wonder, buzz like a beeContinue reading “Three Words.dox”

The side effect, if one walks this path, is understanding and development of self. My teachersContinue reading “Shamanic activism and self-“
