It has been almost seven years since my last entry and my late husband Rick's great crossing ... hard to believe on so many levels. During that time, so much has shifted as lessons continue to abound. For one thing, I absolutely know that the veils between the seen and unseen worlds are extraordinarily thin, and the high-powered, kollana cekes that connected Rick and me in life are as strong since his great crossing. I also unequivocally know the affinities I held since childhood to stories about abandonment and separation have been healed. I know, too, that healing in present time affects not only the future, but the past, as well as for those we are in relationship ... Time isn't always linear ... "Seeds" planted and nurtured take however long they need to come into fruition. I have been spellbound (often with great amusement) to observe the pachakuti (or transition of epochs, as prophesied by Andean medicine people) underway as it continues to unfold.
I've said over the past two decades that leukemia has been my greatest teacher and task master, and that continues to hold true. It brought me into relationship with this exquisite tradition that has provided me with the tools, courage and context to live life fully and passionately. It pushed me off the proverbial cliff to heal at the deepest level. It provided the portal for me to create supportive and loving allyus in my life. And, while I have believed for many years now that my physical body has been cured of leukemia — I've been in remission since 2002 — it wasn't until last summer that I took the giant step to find out by stopping medication targeted for CML. Through periodic allopathic medical testing, my physical body continues to express no sign of the disease — my DNA has repaired itself.
Happily, I am beginning to hear Ausangate's call again ... which brings excitement and anticipation for what is next in my spiritual and consciousness evolution!
