I held a 2-day ceremony retreat this past weekend in Taos. Everything was flowing well in preparation for it. My wonderful assistant was going to arrive on Saturday at 9 AM.
However, shortly after I arrived at the retreat center, at 8 AM and began preparing, I received a text message from my assistant. She said she wasn’t feeling well, and wouldn’t be able to make it to ceremony.
Plop! My heart stopped. A look of disbelief flooded my face.
When I lead ceremony, I must have a right-hand person to assist with all the different dynamics that go on.
A thought flashed through my head that I’d have to cancel the entire weekend because I couldn’t lead ceremony by myself.
I had people that had planned their entire weekend around our ceremony, driving up between 3-6 hours to participate! Omg, what the heck was I going to do?
….And then the magic unfolded.
As many of you know, I am deep in the process of fully embodying the Divine Feminine. A huge part of that is allowing the Divine Masculine to fully support me.
Well, the divine masculine stepped in BIG time! Milton was there to participate. It was his birthday gift. However, when he heard the news, and saw the look of absolute disbelief on my face, he simply said, ‘OK, looks like I am switching roles from participant to assistant!’
He had assisted me once before and has been in about five ceremonies with me. He knew the ropes and how best to support me and the participants.
We then calmly flowed into ceremony which was one of the most potent yet. There was ancestral healing, grief released, forgiveness, trust, ego death & rebirth into one’s new magical, self, and soooo much more.
There are many key elements for a ceremony to be healing and transformative. Having an amazing assistant is definitely one of them.
In deep gratitude and appreciation to Milton, to the divine masculine, for stepping in to support with his care, love, strength, and kindness. He was our earth angel this past weekend!
Thank you, Milton!
