Vision of Sacred Seeds

I go off today to embark upon my second year of a vision quest. I go with the intention to commune with mother earth more, to test my spirit, and receive knowledge while being immersed in awareness and out of those moments come the visions. Am I a quester because I am searching?

I like to think I am a quester to align myself with the divine by offering my spirit through an exchange of the greatest value..my time and full attention. Therefore, I am not searching, for I already am, but I am humble enough to know there is more to discover within.

I have sacred seeds planted at this moment to offer the world. I am at a phase where they have come up and like the pre-bloom of the echinacea below, they are beginning to turn into flowers.

APRIL…WHAT IS A VISION QUEST?

A vision quest can be lead in many different styles and traditions. In this particular vision quest I am going up on the mountain to be within a small space on earth without food or water for four days and nights. This is an intense rights of passage. However, I do not feel the lack of food or water as one might think. In fact after a couple of days I do not desire anything. I will say that last year one of the most challenging aspects was all the time and sitting with myself.

Would sitting there for 4 days.. 24 hours available for you to contemplate all of life be challenging? It is rewarding but challenging.

In the end a vision quest is a time spent away from everything where one is able to receive knowledge and messages from their higher self, or god if you will. I plan on asking for more guidance on my next offering of Plant Meditation Integration Consultations. The offering combines my knowledge of herbs, access bars, sound healing, yoga, pranayama, and the past two years of experience in integration of the realities of plant medicine to the realities of our world.

At this time I see many people diving into the wonderful world of plant medicines and the integration period is one of the most important aspects of this work. How does one have the realities uncovered be reflected in your day to day world? I aim to offer grounded guidance, tools, and therapies to help you walk your talk, ground you into your truths, a ear to listen to revelations, and the encouragement necessary to step into your dreams. 

In the spirit of vision quest, I will be unreachable from July 17th-July 26th and will be slow to respond to emails until August 1st as I am going to spend some extra time integrating and my first family vacation in 15 years!

In our tradition we do not speak of our visions as there is power in keeping them sacred and to yourself, but I do hope to unleash the new offering when I return home full of vigor and guidance.

If being grounded and guided with tools to integrate from Plant Medicine or begin your journey with Western Herbs is an interest,  please respond to this email to begin the discussion.

Untitled Poem
By: April Rameé

Psychic transmissions through telepathic means.
Sound carries through wind and heals where words have hurt.
Traumas released and carried into the waves of the sea.
Soft petals caress the wounded body by the hands of spirit,
chosen by sacred souls on the path of love.
Reverse prayer, reverse age, reverse fear.
Walking deep into the quest, I will return soon, but never left.

 

Raw Exposure

Raw Exposure

Movement, flying free, arms wild and in the air.

Wings expand in perfect symmetry catching the dance of equilibrium.

Stomping the feet, vibrations rise

A current of electricity reaching towards the heavens

This is why one flies free

Beauty within being exposed for all to see

Many believe the wanderer goes far to seek to find something

Searching is not the purpose

LIVING IS THE REASON

 

Giving oneself over to the infinite possibilities

Limitless boundaries

Breaking over invisible lines

Allowing oneself to be true north

Motion creates art of expressions

Forces the brain and heart to reconcile

Deepens internal understanding and practice

Sharing the way to live in this world without rules

Rules that are made up by society

Rules that do not follow the code of compassion

Unconditional love without limits

Letting go of the fear and falling into the abyss of joy

There is no end to the path of light

Live within the void of the golden light

For…

“When you were born you cried,

and the world rejoiced.

Live your life so that when you die

The world cries and you rejoice”

The Edge

The Edge

A path emerges,

deep jungle.

step by step.

Each rock fallen into perfect space.

Flowers bloom with the scent of

danger, love, delicate promises, on the tip of their lips.

Trickling water laps over the stones;

as hard surfaces give way to smoothness

The Sun’s rays split emerald canopies, offering rainbows in water drops.

Down this path…

Wounds, sorrow, and guilt,

shed as the beauty and harmony of mother earth demands your agony abandoned at her doorstep.

Heavy baggage burns in the fire of purification.

A scorching flame found within the heart.

Blazing naked, one arrives to the edge.

Gazing out into passionate expansiveness, a point of suspension.

The limitless feeling, the void, and adrenaline all mingled into an expression of

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.

WHAT IF ‘I’ DOES NOT EXIST?

 

Penetration from Within

Penetration from Within

Stagnation leads to penetration;
of the mind body and soul.
Orgasmic findings from deep within
have opened my heart and tingled my skin.
I urn and long for the touch of mental stimulation
Igniting the fire inside that is ready to burn
I feel the heat escaping from each and every pore
without hesitation and without remorse.
My personal sauna emitting energy & light
full of possiblities and full of flight.
Weightless, hot, and fulfilled
I smile bright and bathe in the sun.
The unforgiving warm energy ready to share
Only with me and those willing to reach far into the depths
beyond the physical and beyond the mundane
Thriving and thumping on the natural rhythms of life
Unapologetic and full with promise of love eternal.

420 Spring Poem

420 Spring Poem

Birds sing spring’s song of life

As the trees kundalini rises manifesting blooming buds.

Promising sweet abundant openings.

Flowers inoculate the senses.

Awakening body chemistry,

crystalizing messages meant for we.

Ancient lessons on living in harmony.

The sweetness of it all brings tears to the eyes, like rain drops–

fall to cleanse the earth.

Past life, this life, the lives.

Present is the past incarnated in the future.

Future is the present incarnated in the past.

Past is the future incarnated in the present.

Now. Then. When.

Karma ebbs and flows.

Move with the tide.

Synchronistic ride.

More than fate or destiny.

~April Rameé

 

This poem is inspired by the Goddess card I pulled this morning, Isis. Isis represents past lives according to the card deck. I find it interesting as I journey to NY to practice with Dharma Mittra to reflect upon my life. I think life is a great remembering of the past and who I am. There are moments along the path that I consider a great awakening to the true nature within myself. These past parts of who I was that create who I am. These future ideals that shape the present moment of what I choose and who I become.

 

This is a draft. I am sure there is more to add at a later date.
