Two Moons Lodge Event “Sacred Fire Earth Lodge Ceremony”

Posted on

December 27th, 2018 at 11 am Arizona time

Join us for this Two Moons Lodge webinar event.

The “Sacred Fire Earth Lodge Ceremony” is a powerful guided imagery that will help you heal on many levels by consciously going into the body and talking with the problem.

Guided imagery is a mild form of hypnotherapy that allows you to relax enough to listen to your inner self and experience transformational healing.

Excerpt of the session…

Now you look out into the distance and call upon a power animal to join you in the lodge today… As it arrives you begin to feel even more safe and very grateful that they are excited to join you on this journey… Get a good look at them and thank them for being there. Now, with your power animal, look at the earth lodge in front of you… it’s a small cozy space made up of nature… you see a small opening with the light from the fire flickering inside… behind the lodge you notice several human figures watching over you… these are your ancestors or spirit guides who have prepared the healing fire and the earth lodge for you… You look to them and thank them before you go inside…

New Zealand Maori Healers Coming to Sedona in March 2016!

Posted on

maori in sedona march 2016
Maori healers are coming to Sedona in March 2016 to present their healing and spiritual work and tradition. Their special healing bodywork is very powerful and direct and helps works on all levels of human levels. A type of deep tissue massage, acupressure and spiritual guidance that works on the nervous system, tendons and bones to release toxins, stress, pain, fatigue, old traumas and painful memories from our cell memory.

Maori are the indigenous people of New Zealand which in Maori language means Aotearoa. Maori healers (Maori Healers) carried out intuitively “scan” deep work with your body’s tissue and energy balance, which, according to many is very deep and allows for transformation.

maori healers in sedona march 2016Te Reia Oomai or Maori medicine (treatment) represents a natural way of healing methods by ancient Maori tradition, which continues through oral tradition from one generation to the next only to specially selected family members. Maori treatment involves working with the body (body work), which in most cases means a deep massage (Roma Roma), energy and spiritual guidance, support (Mirimiri) and use of medicine Maori (Maori Rongoa).

Maori massage technique of acupressure is very deep massage where pressure is applied to the nervous system, the tendons, bones and muscles. By this the body is released of toxins, stress; Pain and fatigue are released is removed. Even very old traumas and painful memories from our cellular memory cells are dissolved and re-filled with positive energy and vitality. You will experience the natural state of your being, which is very important for further treatment.

How can Maori treatment help you?

In general, people are not conscious of energies that are stopped or blocked in our body. These blockages prevent us to build up life as we want. We start with good intentions, but we often fail to stay on this path for a long time. We become trapped with no ideas about what you want. It is often very difficult to locate our own blockade.

Captured energy in most cases takes the form of the disease. Symptoms can manifest themselves physically, emotionally and mentally. Most of these symptoms is caused because the body is not in equilibrium with the feelings and emotions that we have.

Maori healer work on a physical and energetic level. Intuitively, through clairvoyance searches trapped energy and then communicates with the body. On the part of the body where energy is trapped adds energy or cause pressure. It uses their hands or forearm, sometimes elbows. For small and specific points, such as points on your feet, they use a green stone called Pounamu.

During treatment, sees himself as an instrument through which operates Higher Force . Blocks and emotion that touches them Maori healer can no longer hide the body and find a way out of the body, they come to the surface and the body can be eliminated.

maori loveDuring treatments, we encourage you to release directly through personal, physical and natural way of expression, such as. screaming, crying or laughing. These are confusing emotions that up to this point have been expressed, and now came the moment of liberation.

Maori treatment can sometimes be experienced as a very emotional and painful. Physical and mental pain lasts for a very short time. It shows us how much pain we accept in our everyday lives. The length of the actual pressure depends on our willingness to let old things. Resistance is nothing more than the fear that comes from our mind and not the body; body just wants to be liberated.

Maori healers working in a group and it may happen that you will be treated at the same time from multiple healers. More people are also dealt with in the same room. During the treatments healers often sing and pray; they also laugh a lot and help you to free yourself from ourselves. For all the people in the room present a strong sense of connection, which can also be seen as an awakening of happiness and joy.

Each treatment is completely different. Everyone has their own personal way and the way of liberation and achieving peace. However, all have in common the fact that the intensive penetrates into the core of the problem, and is directly confronted with him.
Dropping and liberation is usually done between treatments, but can take several hours, even days or weeks. Depending on how fast you are willing to surrender your new personal situation.

A brief description of their intuitive “scaning” of the body and work with your body’s deep tissues (deep tissue bodywork):

Mirimiri is one form of work on body, where the intuitive abilities of therapist are in foreground.
In addition to the work and knowledge that would traditionally have to demonstrate in front of the old masters, the therapist may also have the ability to “read” folds, curves, lines, signs and wells on the body. During the process mirimiri therapist investigate the body and determine the sites that need to be treated. Even if the client talks, he is looking for unspoken, unknown or forgotten. In therapy, the therapist receives “messages” and helps to establish physical connections to those places where the cells begin to deteriorate and lose the essence of life. The therapist evokes the wisdom that is stored in the body in so-called “codes of knowledge” (nga Kete about this wananga), and helps the client to activate processes that regenerate vital energy (calming word means “regenerate”).

In places where it is necessary to work with your body’s deep tissue, romiromi is activated. Ro means “go inside”, “mi” means to promote molecules in cells, allowing the decomposition and release of toxins that are calcified .
In the process of romiromi we can use elbows, hands, knees, feet, sticks, stones and sea water.
There can be more therapist working on one client. Deeply buried emotions can come to the surface during the therapy. From Emotional experiences arises physical, psychological or mental illness.
Activation of whatu-manawa (heart size) assists therapist in identifying individual toxic problems that hinder an individual, and prevents prolonged conflict in which he finds himself. When these problems come to the surface, the therapist performed whaka Watea (to clean the room), which enables holistic healing and transformation.

The Maori are also active in the field of…
• Natural medicine
• Correcting the imbalances of the body, muscles, tissues, bones
• Balancing and strengthening joints and ligaments
• Holistic well-being, fitness and health

Historically, the Native Americans who lived in the area that is now the northern and eastern United States kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to the recurring full Moons. Each full Moon name was applied to the entire lunar month in which it occurred. These names, and some variations, were used by the Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior. The Native American names below are linked to the months in the Gregorian calendar to which they are most closely associated.

Month Name Description
January Full Wolf Moon This full Moon appeared when wolves howled in hunger outside the villages. It is also known as the Old Moon. To some Native American tribes, this was the Snow Moon, but most applied that name to the next full Moon, in February.
February Full Snow Moon Usually the heaviest snows fall in February. Hunting becomes very difficult, and hence to some Native American tribes this was the Hunger Moon.
March Full Worm Moon At the time of this spring Moon, the ground begins to soften and earthworm casts reappear, inviting the return of robins. This is also known as the Sap Moon, as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins.
April Full Pink Moon This full Moon heralded the appearance of the moss pink, or wild ground phlox—one of the first spring flowers. It is also known as the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and the Fish Moon.
May Full Flower Moon Flowers spring forth in abundance this month. Some Algonquin tribes knew this full Moon as the Corn Planting Moon or the Milk Moon.
June Full Strawberry Moon The Algonquin tribes knew this Moon as a time to gather ripening strawberries. It is also known as the Rose Moon and the Hot Moon.
July Full Buck Moon Bucks begin to grow new antlers at this time. This full Moon was also known as the Thunder Moon, because thunderstorms are so frequent during this month.
August Full Sturgeon Moon Some Native American tribes knew that the sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this full Moon. Others called it the Green Corn Moon or the Grain Moon.
September Full Corn Moon This full Moon corresponds with the time of harvesting corn. It is also called the Barley Moon, because it is the time to harvest and thresh the ripened barley. The Harvest Moon is the full Moon nearest the autumnal equinox, which can occur in September or October and is bright enough to allow finishing all the harvest chores.
October Full Hunter’s Moon This is the month when the leaves are falling and the game is fattened. Now is the time for hunting and laying in a store of provisions for the long winter ahead. October’s Moon is also known as the Travel Moon and the Dying Moon.
November Full Beaver Moon For both the colonists and the Algonquin tribes, this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. This full Moon was also called the Frost Moon.
December Full Cold Moon This is the month when the winter cold fastens its grip and the nights become long and dark. This full Moon is also called the Long Nights Moon by some Native American tribes.

Note: The Harvest Moon is the full Moon that occurs closest to the autumnal equinox. It can occur in either September or October. At this time, crops such as corn, pumpkins, squash, and wild rice are ready for gathering.
