I wrote my first blog for Spirit Walking Journal on June 21st, 2013 during the first quarter of the Moon. I awoke at midnight that night and couldn’t get back to sleep. I tossed and turned. Finally I got up at 2:00 AM, put on my necklaces, got my rattle, put on the “Awakening …” CD and journeyed into the Lower World.

When I arrived, my power animals came out of the cave to meet me. They usually wait for me inside. They simply sat there and stared at me. I didn’t realize what they were doing until later in the journey. They were demonstrating their respect for me.

I went to the Upper World with my younger teacher and my female teacher to see the Ancient One and my healing guide. When the Ancient One saw me he raised his left hand and gave a shout. A band of unseen indigenous people started chanting “Hey-oh-ah, Hey-oh-ah, Hey-oh-ah …” this went on for a while. I understood they were welcoming me and showing their support for my blogging efforts. This welcome made me feel good but in a different way than I have felt before. I believe that we gain power and respect from the spirit world when we demonstrate our belief in it and show proper respect for it. My journey ended and I went back to bed.

Later the next day, June 22nd, I thought about the relationship that exists between us when we are in human form, and the spirits who support us. The relationship requires that we act in order to gain the support our spirit friends. Their purpose is the same as our purpose; to help make our world a better place to live. But they cannot support us unless we get into contact with them and let them show us how they can help. So our cooperation with Helpful Spirits is important; like one hand helping the other. This is significant!

If any of you who read this blog have thought about spirit walking, you may want to give it a try. I can tell you, as one who has been walking this path for two and a half years, it is real. It is a wonderful spiritual path. It is easy to learn. It has given me a personal experience I never received anywhere else. It is worthwhile! Blessings to you and your family and friends.
