Yesterday I was gifted with a Water Spirit initiation. New beginning are in the works for me, becoming a rover again, heading off for more sun. I went out to my favorite jaunt along Highway 10 between Ellensburg and Cle Elum, and as I walked along the train tracks in the blazing sun I saw a delicious waterfall up on the ridge beckoning me forth. I ambled up the embankment, crossed the road, and climbed up the roaring stream. The temperature had changed very quickly over here in the arid landscape, so the snow covered hills were releasing their torrents of water back into the rivers.
As I carefully made my way up the slippery rock pile I heard “baptize yourself.” I must have needed confirmation because it played over in my thoughts multiple times. I have no problem with disrobing on the land and becoming elemental after doing 40 rounds of my Painted Body series, so this looked like a really good time in my eyes.
After the Water Spirit blessing I took a series of Hipstamatic images that look like the beginning of the universe. Such a glorious time. Later I was combing through the descriptions of my Painted Body ritualistic photography series on the land and came upon the blog post about Lyric Kali and my blood red Water Spirit initiations in New Mexico. That was another incredible day being engulfed by water in a typically arid climate. Check it out: https://mellissaelucia.wordpress.com/2010/09/23/water-like-fire-lyric-kalis-water-spirit-initiation/
This morning, the day after the joyful plunge I went on Facebook and saw the quote for the Hare in the Moon astrology post by Lorna Bevin, and look at the Rumi quote! The synchronicities are amping up my friends. Blessings on meeting the spontaneous, potentially earthen initiations that are calling you to move onto your next phase of trans-for-mation!!
