Love Letter to my Parathyroid

F04C91CD-3147-4C20-AF76-1815C79D20AA

On the day before I have the scan of the parathyroid gland…

My Dear parathyroid gland behind my heart, what an amazing journey we have been on the last two months. Thank you for being my guide and showing me parts of myself I hadn’t discovered yet. Things I couldn’t discover without you.

What a miracle that before I was born you went to sit behind my heart, a most unusual place for a parathyroid gland. You went there to be a container for part of me that needed a place to hide, at age four, at age thirty-four and probably many other times. I understand that over time, holding those parts of me that needed to stay safe from trauma became too much and you grew too large. A tumor developed and you could no longer do the work you were intended to do.  I know that was hard on you.

Thank you for showing up at the perfect time so that I could discover, retrieve and integrate those lost parts of me. My hidden power. Power that I can now use to empower my life. I am grateful to you for bringing so much to light for me in two short months. Thank you for protecting my power when it was too much for me to own. You have been a blessing to me in so many ways.

I want you to continue to be a part of my body. The only way that can happen is if the tumor is gone because now it is harming both of us and needs to be removed. My goal the last two months has been to learn what it was you wanted to share with me by you being a tumor. My other goal was to dissolve the tumor so I can keep you so you can do the important work of keeping my body in balance.

I am sorry that you had to take on more than you could handle to protect me and I understand if you have to go. This whole journey has been the miracle. My hope is that we can continue to work together and you can go back to being healthy and tumor free and I can be healthy too.

Love, your friend, Katelyn ❤️

Peace and a Parathyroid Tumor

B9282A38-502A-4128-AFBE-21EB97F9633D

I have been in a very internal process for about 10 days. A friend asked me the other day what I had been doing and I told her it looks like I am doing very little but the internal work is very deep. Being is often more important than doing.

Monday, November 12th, I have the new scan and Tuesday I see the surgeon. Over the two months since I met with the surgeon and got the news about the renegade parathyroid tumor I have been learning so much. The tumor and my heart have been very persistent and insistent teachers and I am listening. Physical illness can turn you inside out so you can be right side out in a new way.

I feel confident in the outcome on Tuesday.

The last 32 months have been a huge initiation for me and I am not the same person. The metaphors, new self understandings, the letting go and integrating the new have been numerous. I have listened and paid attention and learned to love myself in a new way. I have come home to myself.

The last few days I feel stillness, like a mother feels right before a baby is born. I am both the mother and the baby.

Holiday Boutique: Shamanic Rattle

7C896C7E-A871-4075-9C36-50E1815B1572

Here is a wonderful healing tool that you won’t find anywhere else. Do you have someone on your list that is a healer? Maybe even a sound healer. Or maybe you want it for yourself. They can be used to clear and set a new energy in your space.

Each Rattle has a unique sound.

I was inspired to make healing rattles with bells on them 15 or 20 years ago. I learned later that ancient Celtic Shaman used bell rattles in their healing work. That was a lovely surprise because part of my heritage is Irish.

Each Rattle is created to capture the essence suggested by the driftwood which comes from the shores of Lake Superior. There are various totems, charms, beads, and bells that make each Rattle unique and bring specific energy to your healing work.

These Rattles are one of my biggest sellers on Etsy.

The commissioned ones sell for $111
I am creating 8 personalized Rattles for $99. When those 8 are sold they will go back to $111.

Hop over to Unleashing My Wild Creativity on Etsy to purchase a custom designed rattle or purchase one that is ready made.

Purchase Awakening the Goddess

About Awakening the Goddess:

The Awaken the Goddess Meditation Deck was the beginning of my journey as a visionary artist.  I had been part of a group studying Peruvian Shamanism through the Medicine Wheel when I got sick with a severe sore throat that wouldn’t go away.  I was worried that I might have something very serious.

One day at my art studio I began to draw an image and this was the gateway to this deck emerging.  When I finished the drawing I knew it was only the first of many and they came fast and furious over the next two months.  So fast and at such times that I wasn’t able to capture them all in paintings.  By the time the series was complete, I had 44 paintings.  When the paintings were complete, my sore throat went away.  I believe this was the opening of my throat chakra, which is often closed in many people.

This was the beginning of a deep journey that would transform my life as a person and as an artist and would awaken me consciously.  At times it was painful, at times it was joyful and in the end, it would leave me stunned and amazed.

I met the late Ron Mangravite, an expert on symbolism and esoteric mystery and director of a Modern Mystery School, at a salon held at Dr. Jan Adam’s home.  When he saw my images he assumed that I had studied esoteric symbols in great depth and began talking to me about them.  I had no idea what he was talking about because I hadn’t studied this subject.  It was hard from him to believe that I didn’t know what I had done because, according to him, I was using such an incredible “mixed bag” of symbolic, cultural images that one could not know unless they had done years of esoteric study, so it was amazing that they just sprung from my inner world.

What looks like simple drawings are provocative images that take one deep inside. They might be mistaken for a tarot deck is described this way by Ron,

” What we know as Tarot, was initially, a series of drawings illustrating an initiate’s true identity, discovered during a deep inward journey,” he said.  “These drawings, in the form of a deck, were presented to the master teacher to show what the initiate had truly discovered.  The master teacher could tell immediately, by looking at these images, whether or not the initiate had discovered his “truth”.  this is what allowed the initiate to graduate and have the right to say ” I know my identity.  That is why I am pleased to announce that Katelyn is an initiate of consciousness.”

I was stunned when Ron told me I was an “initiate of consciousness”, which he said was quite rare in our culture.  I was just following my inner inspiration where it was leading me.  In a subsequent conversation about my new artwork, I asked Ron if I could study with him.  He told me that there was nothing he could teach me that I didn’t already know.  I write this with the utmost humility because this was 19 years ago and I still haven’t quite taken it all in.

The meditation deck came about when a friend who owned a bookstore saw them and said she wanted to support me to bring the images into the world.  She started a publishing company and produced the Awaken The Goddess Meditation Deck for me.  We had a big celebration when they were done and Ron flew in from North Carolina to speak about them.

I have some of this first printing available for sale.  When they are gone they will no longer be available.  If you are interested in purchasing a deck you can find the information by following this Awaken The Goddess

Release and purification Ritual Doll

 

During a conversation with my current situation I learned that there were issues that needed to be released because they were holding me back.  They were actually caused by outside sources in the form of spells.

yes, you can have a conversation with a situation and get great insight.

Do you realize that when ever you think or speak ill of someone you actually case a spell. Some people do this consciously out of jealousy and anger and some do it without being aware. It is especially powerful if done during a time when someone is vulnerable due to health issues.

I made a list of things that I needed to release and decided to make a doll, also known as a poppet. A poppet is usually made of cloth or fabric but can also be made of clay, wax, wood or just about any other material. Making a doll is a helpful tool for healing. You will notice I also added Dissolving the parathyroid tumor.

I made mine based on what was coming to me intuitively. Because I wanted to release issue I made release my focus. I made her out of white felt which I cut and sewed together. Inside I put stuffing and salt. The idea behind the salt was when it got wet it would dissolve and purify.

The main metaphysical properties of salt are:

* Abundance, manifestation, and anchoring spiritual energies
* Connecting to the ocean, the Moon and its cycles, and grounding spiritual energies into the material plane
* Devotion, spiritual development, and an alchemical return to wholeness
* Hospitality, house warming, and domestic harmony
* Purification, spiritual protection, and releasing unwanted influences
* Insights on life, death, and spiritual rebirth
* Intuition, balancing the emotions, and altered states like dreaming
* Traditionally used for physical well being, vitality, and longevity

I wrote each thing I wanted to release on white fabric with water soluble markers. I placed them on the doll with safety pins.

As you can see she is outside in a bird bath in my garden. She is being charged up by the full moon tonight and tomorrow it is supposed to rain. When it rains all of the issues I put on her will dissolve and wash away.

I laid her on a bed of juniper, marshmallow herb and sage. I picked these intuitively and here is what I discovered:

Juniper is a purification plant par excellence. It can be used to cleanse ritual spaces or magical tools. It is strongly protective and dispels negative energies and entities. It is often used as incense in healing rites and to purify the sick room.

Marshmallow Magickal Uses: Protection; Stimulate Psychic Power; Clairvoyance; Contact Other Planes; Divination; Harmony; Peace; Tranquility Burn or place in a sachet to bring protection, calm an angry person, and aid psychic powers. Keep on the altar or burn on candles to attract good spirits. Attracts possitive influences.

Sage: Clearing out energy in ones surrounding place enables neutral energy, which naturally helps with intuition. The Native American tribes were known to use sage for multiple purposes such as healing, clearing space and ceremonies

My intention through this process is to clear and release the issues that are holding me back and break the spell.

And so she stayed in the yard for several days, through the dew at night and rain and she released…

And she was changed…

 

 

Integrating the Lessons of the Parathyroid

8AA39777-173A-440B-AEF8-C8779E277851

A few weeks ago I did a card reading about the parathyroid tumor.  I never do card readings any more so it was unusual for me to be draw to do it now.  There were two cards that stood out of the three I drew. It actually doesn’t matter what the cards meanrpt because the names of the cards said it all.  Empress Awakening.

My birth path number in numerology is 3 and the Tarot Card that represents 3 is The Empress. In theory The Empress is my idea state of being. When I looked up the symbolism for the Empress it was a lot of the symbols I have painted for many years; bees, roses, blue lotus, stars, the planet Venus, to name a few. It appears I have been honing into the Empress for many years.

The Empress doesn’t play by the rules. She has her own way of doing things.

The qualities of the Empress: abundance, creativity and art, fertility, prosperity, romance, fertility, sensuality, mystery, feminine power and artistic ambition, the birth of the miracle child. In my case the miracle chilled would be a parathyroid Tumor that returned to normal.

Her aspects : Gaia, The Earth Mother, Divine Feminine Principle, Isis, Demeter and Freyja.

One of her symbols is the pomegranate. Pomegranate is not only good for the heart and arteries but also supports the kidneys which are being challenged by the parathyroid tumor.

What I have learned from past experience is that once you learn what you need to know from a health challenge, it can go away. My parathyroid is here to teach me something.  A big part of that being to own my innate power, in this case the attributes of The Empress.

“ The Empress is the Mother I’d the tarot deck. Not just in the traditional sense of birthing children. She is the creator and nurturer of a million dazzling ideas in art or business, or the new life that starts with a hot romance or adventure.

She teaches us to honor our power as a woman, sensual and at peace with herself, she is adored for who she is. The Empress has emerged from the underworld with profound knowledge.

When she returned to earth she was once again Queen of Heaven and earth. She is in her full power and comfortable in her own magnificence.”

Those paragraphs sum up what I have been trying to own.

So I went to my studio to paint the Empress.  As I was drawing her she morphed from the Empress I was envisioning, sitting on her throne in all her glory to the Empress just emerging from the underworld.  As she emerged on my paper I realized how perfect that was because I was just emerging from the underworld myself and hadn’t fully integrated the Empress yet.

There is so much meaning in the symbolism in this painting but I won’t go into it in this blog.

The Gift of Coherence Healing and Dissolving a Parathyroid Tumor

757782CC-F607-4107-823B-F9FE7C7DBBF8

 

As part of this journey to dissolve the parathyroid tumor I have had several people offer me healing sessions.

In this post I want to talk about my experience of receiving a group coherence healing session. It all took place over Zoom, with me and 36 healers from around the world. Heart Coherence Healing  is the work of Dr. Joe Dispenza.

Here is the process in his own words.

“At our two most recent events, for a week people focused on raising their body’s energy. They did this by connecting to the unified field, opening their hearts, and creating brain and heart coherence. The last three days of the event we also practiced three powerful coherence healing meditations, which connected the healers to a greater frequency, which was then facilitated through their nervous system.

In order for people to truly heal someone else, they have to get to the frequency of the fourth energy center. It is here in the heart, in this center of oneness and wholeness, where we begin to connect to the quantum (or the unified field). It’s here where the union of polarity and duality exists.

The pattern of disease exists in light, so when people start opening their heart and energy starts moving from their lower three centers up into their heart, once it reaches their heart the research shows it continues up into their brains. As it moves upwards, it moves through the neck, down through the nerves, and into the hands (which is what enables people to facilitate a greater frequency). Once someone begins facilitating the frequency of wholeness, as the cell becomes more whole and less imbalanced, it’s going to go through a host of chemical, biological, and genetic changes.

When this occurs and a person really elevates their body’s frequency, as the cell gets a vibrational change, it releases waste and eliminates toxins. The cell essentially opens up and dumps anything from the past that is unhealthy. This intense release of waste creates a huge stress to the immune system. Because there is a change in energy and frequency, the body begins to transmute, and this causes the flu like symptoms for many people. “

I introduced myself but the only information I gave the group was “l have a condition that requires a complicated and dangerous surgery.

(The issue for those reading for the first time is a rare Parathyroid Tumor behind my aorta which requires dangerous and complicated surgery.

The healing started by all of us entering into a recorded guide meditation with Dr. Dispenza. The meditation was so powerful from the beginning that I entered into an altered space.

Very quickly it felt like something bigger than me was breathing my body. My body became like liquid and I felt as though large snakes were undulating up and down my body. I was electric. I understood this as a powerful energy and it was very comforting.  I felt very hot. This sensation continued through out the session.

The energy was so strongthat both of my cats came into my healing room to be with me. At one point BJ jump on my lap and the undulating slowed down but whet right back up when I push him off my lap.

This sensation I was experiencing was the quantum field. My body was no longer matter and my body was wave particles.  This is where we become one with the field and healing happens. Miracles happens. Tumors dissolve.

After the session people in the group shared their impressions. Remember they had no idea what my issue was.

One of the women said she was hesitant to say this because first she saw the Caduceus and then saw snakes crawling over me. I hadn’t said anything about the snakes when I talked about my experience.

Two people reported pulling something out of my body.

One Woman said she heard the words “It is done” which is very close to what has been my on going mantra “It is gone”.

Two people felt pressure in my throat which is interesting because I have been exploring the connection between my throat chakra and heart chakra, which turns out to be the thymus chakra/high heart. I know that my heart and it being open will lead to being able to speak from my heart more clearly.

One of the men intuitively sent energy to my heart.

That night I slept for nine hours and still ended up feeling exhausted because I started a detox with cold symptoms like Dr. Joe mentions.

SNAKE ENERGY

The snake is close to earth energies and represents life force. Since it’s a reptile, the snake spirit animal is reminiscent of unconscious drives and primal instincts. When the snake spirit animal shows up, pay attention to how you use your energy, and where you draw it from.

The snake depicts healing on a cellular level. With their lightweight and flexible bodies they possess extremely fast and agile. If snake enters your life, expect swift changes to sweep through your life. These changes denote death of the old and a birth into untapped power, creativity and wisdom. Snake is very powerful to have to have as a guide. It is the guardian of sacred places and the keeper of concealed knowledge.

If you see the snake as your spirit or power animal, be sensitive to your healing abilities towards yourself or others. Cultivate sources of energy and support, especially as they relate to the earth and nature.

In ancient traditions as well as modern times, snakes are symbols of healing powers and opportunities. In the Greek mythology, Aesclepius, the god of medicine, is featured with two snakes climbing up a rod, the symbol of what is known today as the Caduceus.

This session strengthened my commitment to the goal of dissolving the tumor…if it isn’t gone already 😊

A Powerful Message From the Universe

I found this hand carved stone at the thrift store today. It fits perfect in my hand. On the front is a goddess and on the back it says “Strong Woman”. It is #24 which is one of my lucky numbers. It also say KA which is the life force or spiritual double of the person in ancient Egypt.  This is very meaningful to me because I have a deep connection to ancient Egypt.  I am also very connected with the Goddess energy.

It’s from Maui and I think it’s lava rock.

Lava Stone is a grounding stone that strengthens one’s connection to Mother Earth. It is very calming.

It gives us strength and courage, allowing us stability through times of change. It provides guidance and understanding in situations where we may need to “bounce back”.

It feels like the perfect stone for me right now.

The Angel number 24:

Angel Number 24 is a message from your angels to continue on your present path with passion and enthusiasm. Believe in yourself and your inner talents and abilities in order to find success and achieve your desires and aspirations. Trust that achieving your goals is within sight.
Angel Number 24 is a message to listen to your intuition and inner-wisdom and trust that the angels are ensuring that your needs are met as you toil towards success and achievement. Have faith and trust in your angels and surrender your worries and fears to them for transmutation and healing. Ask for angelic guidance and assistance whenever you feel the need and know that they are encouraging and supporting you.
Angel Number 24 indicates that your angelsare sending you positive energies to boost your self-belief, self-esteem and confidence. The work, will and effort you have contributed in the past has lead to building solid foundations and stability, and you are asked to trust yourself and your intuition. Know that you are on the right life path.
what a powerful and supportive message from the Universe that I am on the right path and it is supported.
