As I listened to people presenting their conditions, I began to realise that each condition was also about a relationshipówith themselves as well as with othersóa situation, or an environment and that the healing needed to go beyond the person.
These conclusions came together when I started looking at the way indigenous people interacted with each other, their holistic attitudes toward sickness, and how ritual and ceremony played a vital part in the everyday life of the people. Here, the emotional, mental, and spiritual, as well as the physical health of individuals, was intimately entwined with the health of the group, and vice versa.
This reflects the shamanic worldview that we are all one with each other, with the world around us, with the cosmos, and with the realm of spirit.
Elen of the Ways is one of the dual feminine aspects of nature and when we speak of Mother Nature, it is generally Elen we are speaking of. She is the antlered woman of the wild ways, the very essence of Gaia. In myth and in folk lore around the world there are stories and references to her and even the name occurs again and again in its various forms, but always with enough of a trace to the original owner still left intact. Many traces have been taken up, eaten and swallowed as one people have embraced an already existing deity and then regurgitated that self same deity with a new name and altered aspects. This then shows how important Elen is, for when the newcomers came, they could not eradicate signs of her existence and always chose instead to alter her in a way that made her more comfortable for their own particular set of beliefs. But Elen is always there for those who call her and wish to work with her and walk her Ley Lines. Elen as an antlered woman is often called a deer woman, though there is only one deer species where the female has antlers and that is reindeer. For you see Elen is The Reindeer Goddess of the tracks, these being the migratory ways of old, before the seas cut Europe off from Britain some eight thousand years ago, there was a great forest and this connected one huge land mass. Along this stretched the great tracks and trails, where beasts and men moved with nature, rather than against her. These then were her Ways.
Herne The Hunter is something of an enigma and has much in common with his female counterpart Elen Of The Ways. Like Elen, Herne is an aspect of nature. As she is Mother Earth, so he is the male aspect of the natural world. He has been known by many names, Herne being one which resonates well with both the energy which is his essence, as well as my own perception. Down the years he has at different times been calledCernunnos, Pan, Gwyn App Nudd, Jack In The Green, or The Green Man. He appears like Elen, with Antlers and is seen in human form. Like Elen, he too is also termed a Deer person and often referred to as the antlered, Stag or horned God. He is the masculine and though many assume that because he provides the aggression and male violence, that he is negative. The truth is far from this assumption. Herne is only one side of a duality, which is in reality one half of Oneness. In nature, as in all things within this universe, there has to always be a balance and so too is there such a balance within nature. For Herne is nothing but one side of a coin without his mate. This goes far beyond male and female, as these energies are no less than the understandable face of the building blocks of our world.
Elen without Herne would be like night without day or the sun without the moon. Each is an important aspect of the whole. The following session will bring in both of these divine energies to rebalance and heal you in mind, body and spirit.
For your 90 minute healing session I gather those items which hold energetic importance to Elen & Herne. I add to these any seasonal items as well as any crystals or herbs I feel that you need. I also light candles and incense so that everything resonates with their vibration.
I take a Shamanic Journey to meet with your Higher Self Aspect, Elen & Herne, my Guides and Animal Totems. I draw and work with the sacred Elen & Herne Glyphs, and healing Mandalas to call them in to work with us and to act as guidance and insight into whatever problem or issue you need help with. The various Totem Animals who appear for you will also add their wisdom too.
I then smudge and seal your auric field and close down.
All feedback will be sent by email as a Word Document so we both have a permanent record of what has happened to refer back to if needed. During your session I will enter into a deep Shamanic trance meditation and journey into the astral realms so I will not be able to communicate with you vocally. For this reason I do not use the phone or Skype as it would keep pulling me back into this world and weakening the connection between our higher self aspects.
