We all walk in several different worlds. Those worlds cross-over to help keep us balanced. As writers, we use the wisdom from all of our worlds to give our stories life. On the most recent new moon I chose to journey - as in shamanic journeying. At its core, a journey is simply traveling from one place to another. Shamanic journeying involves communicating with our inner, spiritual self. This is where we find our answers - within ourselves.
I found myself working with two spirit allies - Hawk and Raven. The interesting thing here is that Hawk energy was the "front" energy, essentially masking (to others) the energy of Raven. The energy of Hawk gifts us with the ability to see intuitively, to be able to observe and to face challenges. Hawk energy is also protective energy. For me, at this time, Hawk will help me to stay focused and achieve my goals.
The question here is why Hawk would mask the energy of Raven in my life. There is a good reason for this! The energy of Raven is that of bringing magic to a situation. To place power behind my intention and will, I need to be willing to access my shadow side and heal. Great change is ahead, and I need to be ready for it.
Essentially, Hawk is protecting me while Raven walks me through great change.
What are your spirit allies? Are you willing to work with them? What understanding, what changes, are they bringing to you? How will this be reflected in your writing?
