Swan Blessing Sessions
Swan Blessing is a journeying session to open the gift of sight and vision. It is a ceremony to awaken and heal the ancestral folklore of the witch, the healer, the herbalist, the artist, teacher and the wise woman and to open a pathway to the personal gifts of your lineage. For centuries instead of being seen as natural healing ways, women’s wisdom has been demonised and suppressed. Many women have learnt to go under cover in their healing work and many have blocked or shut down intuitive abilities out of fear. And now we are here – at this time of awakening and the voices of our Grandmothers are urging us to listen and to speak. We may not all be called to be healers but we do possess the natural ability to heal and communicate with our plant and animal families, to communicate with our ancestors and the lands they reside in.
The wild Swan, is a gift from my Grandmother and often a guardian who journeys with souls between heaven and earth is our guide. Together we can track our ancestral pathways, tending to the cracks and parts of the path that have been covered over. Very often there have been sacred vows and promises made to limit ancestral gifts of the past and these can be experienced as vows of chastity, poverty, obedience, silence and even the healer’s oath which was a promise to give so much in service that we had nothing left for ourselves. With Swan we will fly and know what it is to feel safe and free again.
Together we can create a nest to care for the egg of ancestral wisdom, to thank the women who carried it before us and to bless the daughters yet to come, love, Julia.
