The Sacred Journey of Healing Oneself is not all Love and Light

The phrase “Love and Light” is used across the modalities of holistic healing, nonchalantly used in various situations, such as signing off, sending vibes to those who wrong us, the list goes on. 

It is used as a generic answer to the more challenging questions. How can we overcome times of darkness? Love and Light. How can we raise our vibration? Love and Light. How can we chase entities out of our energetic fields? Love and Light.

Although there are many times when sending love and light vibration to a situation is the correct course of action, particularly if it towards someone who has done you wrong as they struggle with their own karmic lessons and struggles in life. However, I feel it is sometimes used to as a barrier to true healing. As a shield against the necessary lessons we must learn. As a protection against the “darkness” that we are so afraid of admitting is within each and every one of us. 

Like the concept of the yin and yang, within all of us there is an aspect of darkness in our light, and an aspect of light in our darkness. What we perhaps fail to understand and acknowledge, is that darkness, although it is by definition an absence of light, does not, by definition, mean bad. 

In fact, darkness, is an absolute necessity to our own personal development and growth, on a physical, mental and soul level. On a physical level, we need the dark part of the day to encourage our bodies to rest. We begin our life in the womb, and there is certainly no LED lighting or sunshine in there. We SHINE and BLOOM in the sun, but we GROW in the darkness.

On a mental level, we benefit from times of darkness to make us aware of what is not serving our highest good at this present time in life. Periods of darkness encourage us to retreat, and spend time reflecting inwards, slowing building the courage to make essential changes in our life. 

On a soul level, travelling to the areas of darkness within us, allows us to gain perspective on the karmic lessons we are facing. To piece our soul back together after past trauma, to take ownership of our actions, behaviours and emotions that are not supporting our highest good or our soul path. 

When I first stepped upon the shamanic path, I felt that I was here as a light being to ward of the forces of darkness, my soul and vibration driving through the darkness like a light saber. I fought the darkness. Sometimes I won. Sometimes I made the lesson much more difficult to learn. I envisaged the path as “us” against “them”. I misunderstood the whole point of the game. 

Because that is what it really comes down to. A game, a great divine lesson plan, a dance between the light and the dark, the highs and lows. The objective is not to defeat one dance partner and tango alone. The objective is to learn from both aspects, and to maintain a beautiful and harmonious balance, a gentle melodic flow between the two. 

Dancing with the darkness taught me so much about myself and the way the world works. The way nature works. The storms and the rain, bring darkness, but they are necessary to maintain life. They cleanse and purify and nurture, even though they can be harsh. Sometimes we need to address the darkness within us and ask; “Does this serve me to maintain balance in my life?” Or “Is this showing me an aspect of myself that I need to heal and let go?” 

The sacred journey of healing oneself is not all love and light. It is a world full of beautiful melodies, harmonies and undertones, of all that is, all that was and all that will be. Our human adventure allows us to play around with the lines of melodies to create a perfect harmonious song, the symphony of our own soul.

In a hectic world, it can be difficult to find the time to join a group meditation. Yet, the importance of community and the part it plays in healing and growing cannot be undermined.

That’s why I decided to create an online platform where we can meet as a community every week to meditate, journey and connect with the essence of the elements and whatever else presents itself to us as a community to heal.

The meditation will take place on zoom and is only accessible to those who pre-register for the session. You can register up to a few moments before the session starts by contacting me and I will send you the meeting link. You can choose to just join one session, or receive a weekly link to the meditation. I am presenting Elemental Journeys as an offering of gratitude to the community, there are no costs involved in participating.

To receive an invitation link for Elemental Journeys, you can contact me via the contact form below. Otherwise you can contact me at info@yewelementals.com or +353 85 22 348 22. 

Two Step Healing Online Sessions

Tailored Elemental Healing

The core concept behind Be Yew – Elemental Energy and Sound Healing is to provide you with the tools and knowledge you need to remain balanced and connected to nature and to yourself. 

At times, we are knocked off balance. We develop energy blocks, through stressful or upsetting incidents or environments, empathically absorbing energy from our environments or stagnated energy lingering after a physical illness has passed. Whatever the source or reason, these blocks appear in our energetic field or chakras as a trigger for us to focus inwards, heal and for personal growth. 

The initial energy reading, will be done using which ever tools I am guided to use for each individual. These may include diagnostic tuning forks, journeying or other shamanic tools. This will be done prior to the 60 min one-on-one session.

As each person is different, I will compile tailored exercises to aid you to work on your own energy blocks, which will be completed over the course of seven days and explained to you during the initial session. 

On day seven, I will do a follow-up energy reading, and offer you support to rebalance and maintain energetic equilibrium. 

Exchange:

Initial Energy Reading prior to session + Initial Session 60 mins €50                           

Follow – Up 30 mins €25

Connecting with the Q’eros

Sacred Connections to the Land and Traditions of the Indigenous People

Cusco, Peru

There is something pure and clean about the Andean medicine. It is simple and so deeply connected and in synchronicity with the elements and nature. The tradition medicine has been maintained and preserved throughout the centuries by the Q’ero community, descendants from the last of the Incas, who fled to high altitudes in the Andes to escape the Spanish Conquistadors. There they live, at an altitude of over 14,000ft in simplicity, with no modern conveniences. 

In the 1970’s, the community was discovered by an anthropologist who recognised them by their unique textiles. From there began the exploration into the wisdom and ancient teachings that the Q’eros had protected and guarded over the years. 

The native language of the Q’eros is Quechuan, which outdates the Incan Empire itself. The Incan Empire is well remembered for its fine architecture, which in some archeological sites appears to be downright impossible given the tools they would have had at the time. Another characteristic of the Incas were their dedication to agriculture and the daily homage they paid to the Pachamama, Inti and the Apus, what we often refer to as Gaia and the Sun. The best land was used for agriculture, which was their measurement of wealth. The land deemed less worthy of cultivation, was then used to build their homes upon, which, even for the royals, were small and humble.

Offerings and Values

The Q’ero tradition focus’ strongly on the exchange of energy and gratitude. Before entering a sacred site, permission is asked and a small offering is made. Despachos are intricate ceremonies which are used as a greater gift to the Pachamama and the Apus in return for health, success of a project or for a bountiful return come harvest time. Each time one sits down to eat or to drink, a small offering is given to Pachamama and Inti as gratitude and as an act of service.

As wealth and class is measured by agricultural success, those who have a greater understanding of the land, the animals and the elements, produce the greatest return and are held in high esteem.

The mountains are deemed to be sacred and the link between those on earth and the ancestors. This is why they are known as the Apus. Many are given their own name and God-like representation, with their most sacred mountain being known as Apu Ausangate. Those who study in the P’aqo, or priest tradition, complete much training and rituals, before ascending on the final mountain to become initiated into Pampamissayuq or Altomissayuq. 

The collective goal towards higher global consciousness

Why are the teachings of the Q’eros so important to the western world?

Cusco, Peru

In the western world, there is a great disconnect from nature and the natural cycle of human life. We have become dependant on technology and many of us spend ninety per cent of our time indoors, with artificial heating and lighting. As theories of the consequences of global warming and pollution filtrate the media and government, more and more people are searching for a way to return to a simpler and more organic way of life. The simple fact of the matter is, we have a significant imbalance when it comes to the exchange of energy or Ayni. We are taking and destroying far more than we are giving and creating. It is a trend which cannot last for much longer. 

The Q’ero P’aqos teach us to live in harmony with the earth, and in harmony with ourselves. It teaches us to take responsibly for the roles we play in life, our reactions and emotions, and the impact we have on the earth. We are guardians of the earth, and with their knowledge, we can actively work to preserve the natural beauty and environment that we live in. They understand the art of agriculture, of living in simplicity, an art that our ancestors too had perfected. The traditions of the Andes are not there to teach us something new, something our genetic DNA does not already know. Rather it is there to help us to remember and revive so that we may learn to live more in coherency with our own true essence and that of the earth.

Commencing the Camino

More and more people are beginning to realise that Peru is much more than a touristic destination and a place of historical relevance. Many are opting to travel to Peru as a place of pilgrimage, to learn, heal and grow as a person. Many are guided to start connecting with the ancestors, their wisdom and traditions, to reconnect with the teachings of nature and to live a more balanced and holistic life, taking full responsibility with ones own growth and development. 

The teachings of the Andes are so pure and simple in their essence, that  we as westerners can implement them into our day to day lives easily. It may take us a long time to have the same understanding of life and the way of the natural world, but the simple rituals, like daily offerings, taking five minutes to acknowledge the presence of your ancestors and their guidance, expressing gratitude for the guidance and abundance we receive and learning to take responsible and control of our body and mind, can all be understood and applied by each and every one of us. How far you travel down the path of understanding is up to you. 

Journey of Initiation to Cusco, Sacred Valley and Lake Titicaca, Puno September 21st to October 5th 2019

In September, we will be making the sacred pilgrimage journey to connect with the origins of the Inca civilisations and the original teachings of the Q’eros. 

 

Connect to the ancient wisdom of the indigenous Q’ero Nation, through the teachings of renowned Q’ero Priest and Shaman Nicolas Pauccar Calcina, direct descendant from the last Inca. He is the author of “The Language of a Q’ero” and “The Last Mountain”, the documentary “Humano” and creator of the KawsayPacha school in Cusco, Peru. 

We will visit stunning and sacred archeological sites from the time of the Incan Empire, connecting with the sacred energy and learning about the ways and traditions of the Incas and their people, including Machu Picchu. 

We will then continue on to Puno, to connect to the origins of the Incan civilisation, the womb of the earth from where Manac Capac and Mama Ocllo rose to go on and establish the ancient Cusco and centre of the Incan Empire.
