Hello to all
This is a long email because we are sharing messages from an ocean water meditation and info concerning a Water walk at 4pm on the 20th and the Full Moon Women’s Circle at the Sacred Healing Fire. The INFO for the March Women’s Circle follows below. There will be a separate email for the Sacred Healing Fire.
March 20 is World Water Day. It is also the Spring Equinox and the Full Moon. We are planning a 4:00pm Water Walk Ceremony. We are saddened by the passing of our Beautiful Water Walker Grandmother Josephine Mandamin on February 22nd. She began walking around the Great Lakes in 2003 laying down tobacco and prayers for all the creeks and rivers and lakes, continuing to 2017 and last September she joined the water walkers on the Grand River walk. We will honour her at our 4 pm ceremony and the Evening Ceremony.
At the 7pm Circle we will celebrate our Grandmother Moon as well as the Equinox and World Water Day. What a gathering of Forces!
PREPARATION FOR THE WATER WALKS AT 4 AND AT THE 7 PM CEREMONIES
- Prepare and awaken Self for ceremony with water, moon energy and the naturally occurring balance of the Equinox energy.You may want to use the attached Ocean Water recording, The Song of Life for your preparation.

Nibi Nagamowin: The Water Song
Water, we love you
We thank you
We respect you
- The following are the message from our Sacred Healing Fire Fire Keepers’ collective Ocean Water meditation in preparation for the coming Fire.
Gifts from The Song of Life
Water is very forgiving; a teacher of forgiveness
Listening to the waves was more restful than sleeping and generated a sense of clarity
It encompasses everything – stillness and swiftness
The waves took me really deep beyond sleep to an inner place connected to all wisdom
Wonderful to fall into these experiences without defining them, knowing they will eventually show themselves as they are and expand within us
Felt a calling and the water took me to a star planet, on a rock with water coming into it in a world with two suns and four moons. I felt I was home.
Water brought me to the feeling and knowing that we are all one; I cried saltwater tears and had a wanting to be home
Disappeared and became one with the water; like a lullaby, felt myself floating in the womb
Drumming and the movement of the water were grounding and other worldly.
Water said “I am a Healer.”
Immediately on the shore listening to and watching waves. All the elements were present and active: water and air, fire of the sun, earth receiving the breaking waves.
Life is so short. If I lived ten thousand years would I see water and tides like foam or mountains walk into the sea? I saw mauve mountains walk into water!
Turn breath/air into water. Water in, water out.
Water holds all for us.
