Twilight Barbie, Angel Valley sweat lodge – some thoughts

Aloha,

Come to the edge, he said.
They said: We are afraid.
Come to the edge, he said.
They came.
He pushed them,
And they flew …..
- Guillaume Apollinaire

My mind is swimming with thoughts today; instead of a gentle trickle, it feels more like a flood-driven raging river, and I have learned over the years that’s a good thing.


Human beings are such an interesting species. I have never seen an Angel Barbie, something that would be comforting and perhaps help children deepen their spiritual connection. Maybe its just me, but a vampire Barbie seems rather odd.

The Angel Valley Sweet lodge has been in the news a lot since the tragic death of three participants. Today I read an article about sweat lodges that really gave me a lot to think about.

I frequently lead retreats and in June when I was in Sedona, we had a sweat lodge. Before we entered the sweat lodge, I told people that if they weren’t sure or if they didn’t feel well, there was no error in leaving. The article by James Bergstrom talked a great deal about the spiritual aspect of sweat lodges.

When I first read about the deaths in the Angel Valley Sweat lodge, my first thought was, “There but for the grace of God.” When I work with people, it is always my intent to help them deepen their connection to their divinity. I have had two people hurt at my retreats in the past twenty years, and I am grateful they have been relatively minor injuries.

No matter what the question, love is always the answer. So I guess if you really love vampires, a Twilight Barbie is something you would really enjoy.  Who am I to judge?

LIfe is as it is. I am sure there were lots of angels at that sweat lodge, and my hunch is angels have no problem with vampire Barbies. I send my thoughts and prayers to everyone. My mind is still whirling, and I know that is the sign I am about to have a wonderful ah ha that I will no doubt share with you when it occurs.

With love and aloha,
Susan

Stories
I remember playing the game ‘telephone’ as a child. We’d sit in a circle and one person would begin my whispering a story into the next person’s ear. The story would slow travel around the circle. The last person would share the story with the group as then the first person would share.

How do I know if it is the voice of the angels?
I used to drive myself crazy trying to decide if I was listening to my mind of the voice of the angels. The short answer is love, love, love , love. The voice of the divine NEVER judges … NEVER NEVER NEVER. If there is any judgment then it is simple human beings trying to control other hu
