The Gift of Friendship and Sage



Early last fall, the University of New Mexico offered a 100% free online course on Curanderismo.  Curanderismo is the tradition of Mexican, Latin American, and indigenous folk magic, medicine, and healing practiced by many throughout the Americas.  UNM offers an intensive class every summer on this same topic at its Albuquerque campus, but 2014 was the first year it offered an extension of the class online. 

It was a great class, and very informative.  We learned about cupping, juicing, herbs, shawl massage, the sacred uses of tobacco, and many other interesting and enlightening topics.  Even though I spent a good deal of my youth in New Mexico, I was (unfortunately) very disconnected from the culture.  It’s something I regret now that I’m an adult, but to make up for lost time I make a point to study and appreciate the culture and heritage now, even though I took it for granted then.

My friend, The Feisty Witch, created a study group for us on Facebook, to help us work through the material and share extra resources.  What started as just a few dozen of my friends and family quickly grew to friends inviting friends, strangers finding their way to our little group and strangers inviting their friends.  And then suddenly, the group had exploded and I had no idea who any of these people were.  But that’s okay!  Because as soon as the class got underway, we shared thoughts and insights, asked questions, and reminded each other of due dates and deadlines for the online course.

Since then, the group has grown in ways I never could have imagined.  What once was a small group of friends has grown to a group of over five thousand people from all over the world.  Some of us are witches and Pagans, others are Curanderas and Curanderos, healers and helpers, nurses and mystics, teachers and students.  The group is active with questions, links, articles, pictures, and videos.  I’m a bit amazed by it, to be honest.  I’m not at all a Curandera.  To be honest, I’m not even a healer and I’m certainly can’t claim Hispanic or Latin American heritage!  I’m just a kid who spent some time in New Mexico and likes to meet others.
 
That’s been my favorite part of the group, to be honest. Sure, I love the information about herbs and magic and medicine.  But really, I’m in awe over the great people I get to interact with each and every day, people who help one another and love one another, people who have wisdom and experience to share, and are more than happy to do it.  Our little study group has grown, and while it’s nearly 5.5K strong, it’s still intimate and familiar.  It still feels like a family.

Recently, one of the members from the group sent me a little care package from New Mexico.  One downside of the Curanderismo study group is that I sometimes get a little nostalgic for the South West.  Sure, I adore living in North Carolina, but New Mexico has its own special charm.  I was so happy when I opened my package of wild-gathered desert sage (and other goodies!).  The scent brought me instantly back to New Mexico, and even further back to my childhood as a kid in Montana.  Holding these lovingly crafted bundles in my hands, I remembered wide open skies, the Milky Way, epic sunsets, rolling prairie, flat and colorful deserts.  I was in, just for a wonderful, brief moment, the places that I once called home.  Because no matter how much time has passed, no matter how far away I am, that soil and those waters are part of me, tugging at my roots in that place.

So, despite not being a Curandera, or Hispanic, or a healer, I still very much enjoy our little (growing every day!) study group.  I enjoy the friends I make and the wisdom that is shared. I enjoy the gifts I am given – gifts of all types.  The sage is just wonderful and very thoughtful, but the gift of such vivid memory is priceless.  I hope I have been able to adequately share my gift of gratitude for the herb bundles, and all of the other blessings this group has given with me.

A Little Peek into Your Past!



Bryan and I are always trying to come up with cool, fun things to do for our radio show, EYE of the SEER.  We have talented guests, fascinating discussion, Mystical Fandoms, and even live, on-air tarot card readings for callers and listeners.  But we like to keep things fresh, interesting, and exciting, and our free Past Life shows are one way for us to have a little extra fun.

Recently, Bryan picked up a few different oracle decks and he has been playing around with them, making fun combinations and insightful spreads.  On a previous show he did a past life reading for me on air, and it was incredibly revealing.  Like, shockingly so.  I haven’t really paid much attention to past life stuff (not since I was a teenager, trying to uncover the secrets of the Cosmos from my bedroom) so I was curious and intrigued when Bryan offered to test out his new cards on me.  WOW.  I learned so much about myself, and in doing so, it’s helped details of my life come into sharper focus, click into place, and make more sense.  Past life readings aren’t just for fun (though they can be fun), but can be valuable tools for helping you gain more mastery and understanding over your current life (as well as past lives and future lives.)

We knew right away that past life readings would be an instant hit over at EYE of the SEER, so we booked a show as soon as we had an open time slot.  The show started with a quick lesson on the concept of past lives and how it applies to the system we presented in Esoteric Mysticism.  After the lesson we dove right into the readings.  Bryan worked with his oracle decks, giving insight into the archetypes at play in the person’s most recent past life.  Meanwhile, I gave corresponding tarot card reading using the major arcana to add detail the childhood, adulthood, and late adulthood of our callers, giving insight into specific details of the previous life lived.  Doing these readings was fascinating and so much fun!  It felt totally different energetically than just doing a simple tarot card reading.  The energy and technique was totally different, and I felt myself reaching into new places of the Cosmos to access this specific information.  Energetically, it was working with a completely different type of power, and it was thrilling.

What more, Bryan’s readings and my readings matched up perfectly, like, scarily accurate.  It was incredible!  I was a bit wowed by it, and I’m sure our listeners were, too.  The concept of past lives is a fascinating one, and past life regression meditations were some of the first meditations I did back in my early days of dabbling in witchcraft.  (Past lives and loves spells… typical teenager!)  Aside from being a fun show, Bryan’s introduction offered some key information that we wrote about in our book, and is exclusive content for those who have been waiting patiently for a publication announcement.

So, don’t miss out on some exclusive content found within Esoteric Mysticism, and go check out our past life reading show!  Furthermore, if you’re interested in past lives, check out our next show.  The readings take a long time so call in early to reserve your spot in the queue.  We’ll try to get to as many callers as we possibly can, and the patience of our listeners and callers is always appreciated.  And also, Bryanoffers both past life and tarot card readings via our website, to check that out, too, if you don’t want to wait for the next EYE of the SEER past life show and you want/need a past life reading right away.

Listen to our first past life show here!

Save the date for our upcoming past life show, Tuesday September 22 at 9pm EST!
