Greenland ceremony

Healing the Hearts of the Ancestors in Greenland

(by Martha Lucier, co-founder & collective member)

Just before leaving for Greenland I had a dream that was very powerful. In the dream I was performing an Ancestor Ceremony in an area where rocks marked the graves of the ancestors on a grassy land. I was standing at each rock holding a scepter while saying prayers.

As I began to pray the Earth began moving and shifting beneath my feet, like waves pulling me off balance. The shifting caused large cracks and one of them began to open. I knew the ancestors were not far beneath the surface. I was shown that they were only 1-1/2 feet underground and only air lie between the ancestors and myself.

I began sinking into one of the cracks as the rumbling earth softened like a sponge. I jumped back to stop myself from being swallowed by the earth. I later wondered if the melting permafrost was bringing the ancestors closer to us? A big black spider emerged out of one of the cracks. I killed it by slicing it in half with the scepter without hesitation, as I intuitively knew it carried poison.

A story began to unfold on my journey to Greenland that helped me understand the significance of the dream and why I was called to the top of the world. This is the story that has unfolded for me….



Home Practice

The next time you are outdoors, connect to the wisdom within the land. Explore what helps nature, such as the trees, the flowers, and the birds empty themselves and fill their hollow bones with Spirit.
* What do you need to let go of so that you can grow into the power of who you are?
* What helps guide you back home to the light in the most desperate of times?
* How can you incorporate these helpful ways into your daily life?
