Blazing lights over dark mountain

So dark I am lost in her presence

As I fall into her darkness, I remember I have known you before, I have lived in the mouth of your caves

I crawl into your depths, I am centre

There I dance with black staffs and Mount Hina shakes to her core

I breathe you into my belly, my belly swells with momentous energy, vibrating to the sound of drums below

The lights come out of my dark mouth and soar into the sky as if they have been there for all time

The moon is formed, light bleeds down and I weep with joy

My tears become an ocean and the light dances on the surface

I weave a circular portal with beads of light that come alive when you are ready to dive to meet me in between worlds

If you would like to work with me, I offer shamanic healings and mentorship sessions.
