I Am She of Sound
On this dust and bone of Earth and throng
As the sound of song plays from nature above
The world goes quiet and song plays on
As the world goes quiet
And the song plays on
When you listen to song and sound
When you go beyond the tongue
When you look inward and
See the sound does play on
When you look deep into Heart
You hear it
Feel the dust and bone at your feet Dear One
Feel Earth under your soles
The Sky above your thoughts
Let the Earth respond
At your Heart, at your mind
Let the Mind go beyond
Let the Mind go quiet
And you’ll feel where you belong
With the Earth at your feet
And the Sky at your mind
And let the Earth engulf you
So you know you belong
Within the belly of Her now
And let the song play on
Within deep calm of Her around you
Singing the song to you
And see you belong
With the Earth at your feet
The Sky in your mind
And the song of Her in your Heart
And let the Earth belong

This morning I heard voices. I clung to the table in front of the window and eyed out into the daylight as I saw two people walking briskly by, I remember that, they walked side by side. I froze, they laughed, as they snaked the path into the greenness and were gone. It seems so long since I fixed my sights on other people. They were dressed for hiking with sturdy foot wear, like mine, I remember them stuck in the mud.
You know I wasn’t even sure at this moment that my voice actually still worked, I hadn’t spoke for so long. I hadn’t even talked out loud to myself, not a word, not a hum, a song, a phrase, nothing. I’m now aware that I need to be ready, I need to rehearse my vocal cords.
I have been following a set routine to last the day, finding comfort in the conformity. The cabin now seems familiar and I feel I have come to know every floor board, the ones that creak, where the drafts come in, where the sun rises, the sound of the birds, the stream running at the back of the cabin and the wind and the sound it makes brushing the leaves.
Something is not right within me. I see the world outside, people walking, talking and laughing, I stay quiet within, I hold my breath within, I keep myself within. There is fear within these walls and fear outside of these walls. I no longer have the presence of comfort. I feel I can not rest. So why do I stay hidden when I want so much to be found, to be rescued?
So what is it that I fear the most?
This book, The Red Tent pulls you in by your heartstrings. It is a captivating read and I was charmed into the world of sisterhood, the world within the Red Tent and the circle of caring for one another that once took place in every community. The story is of a girl named Dinah in biblical times from the Book of Genesis and it is loosely based on the family of Jacob and his wives. Firstly, I need to explain this is not a religious text it is a charming tale of womanhood and the changing traditions in communities and society. It is also a book of emotional polarities as Dinah’s story transitions through communal life in childhood and family ties to city dwellings amongst Kings. It is storytelling at its best about birth, growth, healing, ageing and friendship. I recommend reading the book before watching the recent Mini Series on Drama TV as you will be watching an abridged version of Dinah’s story.
The crystal for the month of June has been Moonstone. This crystal is known as a Feldspar mineral and has an opaqueness to its appearance. It can be found in shades of peach, grey, white, black and rainbow blue. For me the different colours have their own properties such as peach feels delicate and soothing, white is very intuitive and balances feminine qualities, black is for introspection and deep emotional healing. Rainbow moonstone has a prism effect diffusing a blue light. It has an uplifting presence and protective feel, as well as the inner knowing sense that all the colours of moonstone bring into being.
So what have you discovered this month to recommend? What books have you been reading? And which crystals have taken your fancy in the last few months?
Next months reviews will include some Hay House books and a lovely Chrysocolla sphere I have just purchased from Philip Permutt at The Crystal Healer Online Store.
