Over the years, her quest to merge diverse religious beliefs and practices through the commonalities of love and peaceful living, led her to travel, live, and study with shaman practitioners, herbal healers, Native American medicine women, Buddhist priests and other earth-based spiritual teachers. Through these experiences and experiences with global metaphysical teachings, she learned to honor the eternal source of love in all people.

Kin Domain Wire Sculpture

In memory of Whinny, my recent chicken sacrifice, my nine year old god child presented me with a wire sculpture. The young girl remembers me feeding corn treats to my chickens this summer. Whinny was the brave one who always came to explore, test, and let the others know all was well. So two things from this experience. A raccoon showed up. The message here is about the knowledge of transformation through masks and disguise.

"This knowledge can be applied to religious and ritual practices or within normal everyday life. Do I need to present a different face to people for greater success? Am I hiding my true self? Are others hiding their true self? Raccoon can help me find the answers."

Certain indigenous practices offer chicken sacrifice to the ancestors for shifts, transformation, and gratitude. A feather from Whinny is now on my ancestor altar in gratitude for the wisdom message.
