From the American Thinker we read that a group calling itself Pagans for Obama are organizing a healing ceremony for, well, I'm not quite sure.
Whatever it is, it's calling a Healing Circle and will follow the rising of the sun or some crap like that similar to a "wave" at Lambeau Field. Except that they won't be in a stadium and they aren't Packer Cheeseheads and they might be bare assed or decked out in beads and tattoos or covered in raccoons. These people are pagans or Wiccans - in other words - witches, devil worshippers, warlocks and congressmen.
The Pagans for Obama Group is planning a magickal working tomorrow (FRIDAY) night.
We're going to perform a "Rolling Circle" Healing Ceremony for the election. That means that are sisters and brothers in the East will begin and then those in each successive time zone will join half an hour later.
This ceremony was the result of a discussion among us about Palin's authorization of aerial hunting of wolves and bears and the horrendous lies and distortions being propelled from the campaign in order to damage Barack.
After much discussion and wise counsel, we are united in creating this ceremony to HEAL the right instead of attack them. The following is an outline of what we will be doing and we invite everyone interested in healing our nation during this election to join us! Please share with anyone who may wish to participate in this landmark magickal work! We can reclaim our nation for the good.
The ceremony itself is described here:
This is reminiscent of "The Green Mile" where resident evil within a person is gobbled up by John Coffey (portrayed by Michael Clarke Duncan) and then later spewed out like Gnats From Hell. So remember to take a nap after gouging yourself on Satan's Salmon and sleep with a swatter.
We are NOT attacking the individuals, we are attacking the lies using our power animals. I do practice a shamanic path (Faile Gleidhte), and Caroline's comment is exactly right.
As you are doing this work, instead of attacking in anger or malice, you should be hunting for illness. Your power animal will do what SHE/HE does best, so you want to focus your intent to match their abilities or vice versa.
I find that once you are immersed in the work, the animal spirit will take over if you are doing this in a shamanic manner. I know Wiccans usually direct the energy, but I would urge you to become one with your animal spirit and allow HER/HIM to guide the work, that way you probably will not run into the pitfalls of attacking negatively.
In shamanic healing traditions, the "Healer" normally consumes the illness in order to destroy it. I think in this case, we should be performing a healing ceremony. I think we should focus on healing the illness of Lying, Greed (for power, wealth, etc.), and the illness of Stealing (as in the election). We should attempt to heal with Compassion, a desire to Serve the People, and Honesty. Remember that these individuals were once innocent children and are sacred members of All That Is, just that they are currently sick.
If you allow your animal spirit to stalk, capture, and eat the illnesses, then the universe can properly dispose of it and convert it to the good.
Beaver and others who have different skills can act as connections for those of us who will be feasting and be our anchors and circle holders so to speak. They will be unifying all of our work and performing the vital function of building the framework within which each of us will be working. These peacemaker spirits will also insure that our work is protected from outer workings (i.e., forces working against us-and yes, I believe they are out there praying their little butts off) as well as keeping us from straying into personal attacks.
So, I would divide our work into two categories:
Peacemakers: those who will build and sustain the energy work and keep us focused on consuming/healing/destroying the diseases of lying, stealing, and greed for power. These are all illnesses that shamans typically cure.
Hunters/Eaters: those will seek out the above illnesses and see them as the natural food of our power spirits. Once we find them, we will feast on them. Please remember to share with the Peacemakers before you're done with your work!
For instance, I'll be working with Mother Bear primarily, and will be looking for fat, yummy, spawning, salmon-shaped lies, greed, and thieving energies. It is after all, that time of year! My mouth is watering already, and I can feel HER tugging me to go to the river.
Above all, remember to eat and drink after this working to ground your energy and to digest the poisons. Our work won't actually be finished until we have had our morning constitutional *grin*, so just be aware that you might want to give yourself plenty of space for meditation and rest without a lot of stress or distraction so that the toxic residue of our work doesn't affect you.
I think there are several different belief systems at work here. Perhaps we are dealing with a coalition of loons, a Singularity of Silliness or a Confluence of Hysterical Flatulance that has come together to work for the election of the Chosen One, His Barackness.
In any event, Power Animals are not Power Rangers; it's like some kind of weird transformation where, for example, you strap a raccoon to your ass and dance around a tree, releasing the energy and characteristics peculiar to that animal.
If indeed your Power Animal is a Raccoon, then you will develop a strong affinity for ripping the lids off garbage cans and foraging therein. And for the amazingly low price of $28, plus shipping and handling, you can get a Raccoon Energy Stone!
Ms. Hart has testified that she did a personal energy transfer on each Energy Stone (which hopefully did not also involve the transfer of personal DNA). I'm sold! Once the rock is empty you must dispose of it in accordance with applicable Federal, State and local laws.
"I have personally performed an energy-transfer ceremony on each Power Animal Energy Stone.
It holds the vibrant energy of the power animal to refill and refresh your own." ~Carrie Hart
But where do you find a Power Animal and it's associated Energy Stone?
Why, in the Enchanted Forest of course!
And of course there is an Energy Stone for every Power Animal! You too can share the power of the Bear, Buck, Buffalo, Butterfly, Camel, Cougar, Doe, Dolphin, Eagle, Elephant, Fox, Giraffe, Gorilla, Horse, Koala, Leopard, Lion, Lioness, Orca, Owl, Panther, Peacock, Polar Bear, Rhinoceros, Seagull, Squirrel (I'll bet there are a LOT of these in the Wiccan repertoire), Swan, Tiger, Tortoise, Unicorn, Wolf and Zebra.
Collect all 32 Energy Stones. Share them with your friends. Transfer energy between Brother Camel and Brother Panther. Howl at the moon or whinny at your flat panel TV. And whatever you do, please don't forget your incantations!
It's like buying a Chatty Cathy or Dora the Explorer doll. Maybe more like a Pet Rock with a string that you pull.
Power Animal Invocations
Each Power Animal Invocation has been developed specifically to maximize the energy of the power animal within you. It clears your energy field, invites (invokes) the spirit of your power animal to fill you and then joins you together.
Listen to it each morning, while holding your Power Animal Energy Stone. Load it into your iPOD and listen to it just before that challenging event. Let it move you ever closer to the vibrant energy of your power animals.
You may download it immediately from a link on the "Thank You" page after your
purchase; you will also receive an email with the link to the MP3 download.
If you swallow the stone you will invoke the supernatural colon cleansing properties inherent in every Energy Stone. In extreme cases you should also swallow the Energy Stone of Brother Goose. Whatever you do, when "recovering" the Stone, do not use a porcelain receptacle as the recovery vehicle.
IMHO McCain and Palin should start picking out curtains for the White House and the Naval Observatory.
