Birthed a drum yesterday with the beautiful Talllah from http://makingsacred.com/
We sat in circle with women from all 'round, as a collective, yet all on our own Journeys. We were expect mothers waiting to give birth to our center, our voice and creativity. We were midwifed by the magical Mermaid Melody from The shamanic School of Midwifery and The amazing Sarah from Embodiments dance, who also graciously held the space for us to gather.
Deeply personal and profound.Raw and Primal. I felt like I had come home in a sense and creating the drum was the most natural process in the world. Time stood still as I went in deep and connected to Deer spirit. Images flashed through my mind, chants came and the collective heartbeat of the drum pulsed through my veins. My body ached as the process continued..I was literally "birthing' my drum. Instant Love & connection.
Feelings and emotions from the ancient line of ancestors were never far from my thought, as they gathered in glee and watched us all create. The whole experience was magical and intense. A coming home and reconnecting back to a memory of when we knew how to just "be".
My Nan, My Mother , My sister (you know who you are) My daughters and those yet to come were all with me as I created and wove. The line and circle of our thread wove in and out in a timeless,limitless and infinite creation.
My drum and I are still "talking" about the finishing touches , last night I placed a crystal in the heart and wove it in with intent. The process of bonding will continue, as I watch her dry and change, a different part of her personality is revealed. Therefore a part of me is revealed. The connection is deep and ever so beautiful. I cant wait to hear her sing!
Thank You in Gratitude and love to all the woman there, that made this day special ♥
