Twins are Born

July 7, 2010

     During a week-long workshop at Cal Earth,  growth and insight emerged through pangs of emotional movements.  My partner and I found ourselves in the midst of tension as we presented our points of view about how we were communicating.  Ok….REALLY…..We were arguing.  Defensive/Offensive conversations flew around our field just like the clothes in the dryer at the laundromat.   Yes, we WERE actually at the laundromat.
 
     Eventually we found peace and resolution and returned to the workshop to begin a project with the group.  My partner went ahead as I lagged for some unknown reason.  I took the moments of solitude to meditate briefly to be awaken by a call from my medicine bag.  Corn Meal…”Take the corn meal!”  I checked my bag and  it was wet. Upon further investigation, my small bottle of collected and blessed Lightening Water had let loose in my bag and saturated most of its contents.
 
     I pondered briefly of the mornings events with my partner, set out the contents of my bag to dry and returned to the group with corn meal in my pocket.   The group had begun to build a wall with Earth and I gave offering to dig.
 
     Then just a few moments after my arrival back to the group a pvc line for water burst through  Mama Earth just like the water breaks in a swollen womb before a birth. 
 
     A week later, these twins were born.

Releasing tears that morning

 as the Lighting Water

released its blessings

of emotional healing. 

Defensive,offensive conversations

 flew around our field

just like the clothes in the dryer

at the laundromat. 

I rejoined the group

humbled by the water release

in my medicine bag

and in my heart.

Reflections of Mama’s labor

for love.
