I am the Medicine Carrier of a stone healing bowl, gifted to me in the Lakota Way to do my water blessing ceremonies along with my 4s4w work. Water is he element of the female and represents sacred womb water. The stone represents the sacred womb of creation. That my all sound a little odd at first, but people love going to the bowl and spending a little quiet time to reflect and center themselves. They are asked to think about what needs flow in their lives and also to offer a blessing for the world and Gaia. The bowl feels peaceful and healing to spend time at.
April is the time we bless our Mt Ashland’s snow pack. We always have a great crowd. Music is played by a variety of musicians and prayers offered for the water.
After that, I take the bowl to the Mother’s Day Pow Wow in Grants Pass, Oregon and set up a table for the attendees to go to for their own water blessing time.
