In many cultures this is the time of year when the veils between the worlds are the thinnest, with the Ancestors hovering close by to reconnect with their earthly kin. Orbs in photographs can be signs of Spirit energies making their presence known. Two weekends ago a group of dedicated adventurers undertook a Medicine Walk here on the land in Wallowa with Whitney Freya and I. There was 36 hours of silence during the process and the questers followed their own rhythms and impulses. It was a time out of time to hear the subtle whispers of their Muses calling. In the midst of the Walk four of us got multiple pictures of the SAME orb, and one of the women had gotten the first known orb in this series in her backyard in Kentucky on August 24th. Four of these images are directly from the Walk, and then I have continued to get the orbs over the last few weeks including one this morning.
Last night Whitney and I journeyed to the orb asking what messages it had. I got: “The Ancient Ones need access to the creativity.” The Medicine Walk was predominantly Whitney’s Creatively Fit Coaches who midwife others into claiming their own creative power. Clearly the Ancient Ones saw this group as a fertile environment for collaboration between the worlds. I have been reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s new book Big Magic about breaking through your creative fears, and she offers that ideas are alive, and they wish to land on willing and able co-creators. So this Samhain/Halloween/Dia de los Muertos/All Saints Day weekend what is pursuing you that wishes to co-create some big magic? Enjoy the orbs and this morning there was a beautiful rainbow out our backyard as well. If you have been following me on Periscope my phone would not let me scope yesterday. I hope ti works today.
