Drum Journey (Recorded drumming): ~15 minutes
I met with Hummingbird upon arriving in LW. The purpose of my journey was to request a compassionate helping spirit who can help me as I study for and take my National MFT exam. First, though, I asked Hummingbird if hummingbirds might come to my home in OR. I have set up a feeder and red flowering plants for them...
Once I asked Hummingbird to assist me with the real purpose of my visit, he began pecking me in the head. It was as though he was infusing my head with healing in the areas I need for memory and emotional support.
We then walked past the Sacred Fire Circle and past Tree to the area beyond. I saw a natural bridge that reached over the canyon. As I walked along it (Hummingbird flying nearby), I realized I had never been to this area of LW before. We crossed the bridge, and entered a steppe landscape. There were large, flat stone ares where I could walk down deeper into the grasses. There, I saw a white goat standing on the grass. As I kept walking, I saw a chipmunk scurry along the ground, and a bird flying above. While looking up, I turned my gaze to a rock above us. There was a grey wolf sitting, overlooking the steppe. The goat ran away, and the wolf stood. I saw her yellow eyes, then her bushy tail. Finally, I saw her paws as they rested on the rock as she sat again.
I made my way up to Grey Wolf and asked, "Are you my power animal?"
Yes, she said, I am here to protect you from negative thoughts like I would protect my children. I will scare them away like that goat. That is the child part of your nature, the sheep, the goat. The innocent. It has a place, but not here, not for this task.
I will also give you my sharp attention. You need focus as you study and take the exam. You will be fearless. I will drive away that fear. I will take care of you.
Grey Wolf Mother asked me to merge with her so I could see what it feels like to have strength, agility, endurance, patience, and power. We ran through the steppe lands. I could feel her muscles engaging and her chest filling with and expelling air. We ran as Hummingbird flew nearby us.
Grey Wolf Mother ran with me back to the Sacred Fire Circle and sat down. I disengaged and asked how I could honor her as I study and take the exam. She said to keep her nearby. Envision her. Have photos around. Offerings are okay. Mainly remember her and how it feels to merge with her.
When the Callback came, I thanked both Hummingbird and Grey Wolf Mother before I returned.
