The red rocks of Sedona, Arizona stand as beacons in the high desert, emanating their calm stature as storehouses of power for the ones who seek them. Though I enjoy hiking up, I felt it was much more important for me on this visit to stay grounded. Thus, on a visit to Bell Rock a few short years ago I made a profound connection that guided me further than I imagined. Here’s a bit of my story of dis-empowerment and reclaiming my power.
I visited my friend, Lori, in Sedona, AZ with the intention of being with her, hiking around the red rocks, offering a Healing Pain workshop, connecting to spirit in profound ways, and receiving healing for myself, a list full of engaging experiences. As always, I grow from these encounters and come away with a little more than I expected.
I was delivered safely from the Phoenix airport to my friend who was visiting a sister-friend in a nearby town. I felt instantly at ease and at home with Rebecca who teaches shamanic ways, offers spiritual retreats, and has a small shop. I chose a black agate that nearly jumped out at me from a table of other stones. She immediately gifted me the stone as she remarked how just earlier that day she put it out from her personal collection. I felt an instant bond with this stone and slept with it by my side for several nights as it blessed me with clear dreams.
While in Sedona, I did a healing session for a man who was experiencing an invasion of his personal power through his current illness. Without going into his personal details, we focused on cleansing and, in fact, purging his stuff. As I facilitated his healing with tuning forks, Reiki, crystals, and guided intuition, we worked together to reclaim his power and see his condition through a new lens. Finally, we felt we were finished, and I immediately took the few minutes to cleanse and detach from all energies we encountered. It wasn’t enough for me, and the consequences I felt, though dis-empowering, were also a revelation for more to come.
The feeling of dis-empowerment subtly crept in. One instance after another, the cascade of mistakes flooded my field. To a casual observer, it might appear coincidental to have stuff go wrong. To an empath like myself, these energies were obviously striking blows to my core. Even after a late, short walk to Bell Rock as the sun sank behind the horizon I didn’t realize what was happening. I went to bed early, feeling drained and awkwardly defeated for no apparent reason. The new agate I adopted refused to be with me as I slept and elected to keep a short distance instead.
Dreams of ceremony, balance, and rejuvenation crystallized in the night. I awoke early with a cure for my personal dis-empowered state. Quickly, I drew a hot bath with Epsom salts, adding frankincense essential oil to coconut oil, and infusing the bathwater with it. Next, I filled a tall glass with water, adding my chakra crystal set along with a few drops of frankincense in the glass of water. Completely immersed in the sacred water, I ritually submerged, washed, and anointed myself with blessings. Finally, I drank the water held by the glass and added the crystals to my bathwater. Instantly I felt better for having taken the time, listening to my guides and dreams in order to reclaim my power.
Interestingly, the man for whom I did the healing session is also a powerful healer. He knew that his circumstances could cause such reactions as I experienced and claimed I’m not alone for feeling as wiped out as I did. Yet, in a follow-up session he had with another healer, he was obviously clearer, and brighter. (He said lightheartedly to me, “You’re a good healer.”)
I believe it’s the foundational practices I intuitively have in place that protect me and keep me as strongly empowered as I am. I know when it’s important to ground, and not climb, for example. I’m not only sensitive to crystals and dreams, but I act on the messages I receive. I select which crystals to wear each day, and the tuning forks I use in the morning and at night. I also choose how I feel about my experiences. Sometimes stuff goes wrong or does it really? Choosing to be empowered also means that you recognize when you feel dis-empowered. Take the time you need to perform the rituals that help you feel balanced, nurtured, and stronger for having done so.
Finally, as I readied myself to leave Sedona, my friend remarked on our experiences of the week. You see, we (and a few strong friends) built a tipi in her back yard which consumed much of our time and labor. She was almost apologetic for the time it took, but I reminded her how we created Sacred Space. That’s the final lesson for reclaiming your spiritual power. Creating Sacred Space comes first from within, inside your personal practices of cleansing and balancing. Then Sacred Space is supported by the one you create in your environment.
I invite you to recognize your personal power and reclaim it. How do you move in the world? What are the words you choose to speak? How do you feel about money, relationships, and sense of purpose? Which sounds resonate with you? It all matters. Let me help you find your way.
I’d like to offer two gifts. Which one sparks your interest?
