The journey begins
I journeyed into the beginning.
I was not sure what to expect, I sat in the darkness created by my closed eyes.
I encountered two Totemic Beings: firstly a Crow/Raven and after a while an Orca.
These encounters made "sense": I had met both before, but a long time ago. The crow showed up strongly, I could feel it's pulsing life force, its strong beak and deep curious eyes. We flew.
The Orca was at first strong, but later it felt like this entity had some weaknesses. It turned again and again to its left. It took me into deep water, alone, in the cool blue quiet.
Crow and orca. Swimming and flying.
What did I come to know?
Navigating with a strong clear eye. I have been flying all day, in my belly. Swimming, fathomless depth, solitude. I am curious about my experience of the weaknesses in the orca. I sit with what this has to tell me.
