Josias River in Ogunquit Maine Blessing – September 1, 2016
The third River in my Rivers of Maine blessing sequence is the Josias River in Ogunquit Maine. This river is very small but it enters into the Atlantic Ocean at Perkins Cove.
On August 26, 2016 I was guided to go and collect water from the river and bring it home and place it on my crystal grid for the Mt Agamenticus watershed.
Before gathering the water I did the Four Powers Protocol after stating my intention and asking permission of all living forms of the river and the land. The location was at a small park with 2 benches where the river looked not much more than a stream which was flowing over the rocks on its way to the ocean.
I brought the water home and placed it on my Mt Agamenticus Watershed Map and there it was to remain, surrounded by crystals, crystals skulls and a small copper ring originally charged to block electromagnetic fields. In the glass jar with the water that was retrieved I placed New Zealand Pounamu and Mother Water that I received at Hummingbird Ranch when I learned the Four Power Protocol and Maori River Blessing.
The following week (5 days later) I was led to do a counterclockwise walk around the top of Mt Agamenticus two days before the New Moon and guided to do my water blessing ceremony for Mother Water on the day before the New Moon, being it was the first New Moon of the new Eclipse cycle with a Solar Eclipse over Africa. Here I am guided to do the Blessing on the next day (9.1.16) at High Tide.
In the morning as I prepare to go to the River I am guided to dowse for a Crystal Skull to bring with me to leave as an offering and return of the Crystalline Energy to Mother Gaia.
It is one that was a gift to me long ago by a friend of many years. The Skull is a Rose Quartz which has faded and has never offered me a name but when received it reminded me of my mother whose face was disfigured by cancer resulting in the removal of one side of her jaw.
Today as I chose it, the Skull looked very much like an Ancient Indigenous Person and so I placed it in the water jar with the Pounamu.
The path leading through the little park was quiet except for crows who were I’m sure announcing my arrival and so I replied in kind.
On arriving at the water and asking permission of the land to perform a blessing of cleaning and clearing I was immediately drawn to the Birch trees (The Birch tree is my Tree Totem) on the other side. There was a nylon fiber clothesline type rope that was frayed and tied to several trees so I crossed the river and saw that they were cutting into the trees and one was too deep to remove.
I was not prepared for this yet I understood that it was all a part of my commitment and service to the Spirit World, so I dowsed to find a sharp edged rock to cut these and found one right away. Once the rope was cut and removed even the tree which had the rope embedded in it assured me that it was grateful and would take care of the rest. So I gathered it all up and removed it from the land.
Back on the other side of the river I asked if I may begin the Blessing and return the water which I had removed and blessed at home.
Using my dowsing rods for questioning as to how I was to proceed I determined that the Four Powers Protocol was to be used in each of the four directions. I then dowsed for the direction in which to begin which felt like North East. So with that I stated my intention of purpose… to clean and clear all the painful and destructive memory which the river contained and had experienced since its beginning… for its entire length from Ocean to the source.
Then I spoke the Protocol in each direction while standing barefoot in the water. Upon completion there was a bumble bee collecting pollen on a small, flowering orchid like plant, in the middle of the river. Interestingly the glass jar I used to collect the water is a Swan’s Maine Beekeeper Raw and Unfiltered Honey, so I feel the gratitude and bow as the bee moves on without enough time to get a photograph.
When it was completed I asked where to place the Rose Quartz Skull that had been chosen earlier. I was standing by a large Oak tree which was certainly the oldest of trees within my site and which was clearly a River Guardian. As I was placing the Skull into the hollow of its roots I was again reminded of my mother whose long blonde hair I carefully took back to Ireland and placed in the roots of a tree in Kylemore Abbey.
So I placed the Skull within the roots with a little digging and did a tobacco blessing with tobacco from a cigarette which I found in a pack behind the tree on the ground.
How amazing to be provided at each step with exactly what was needed by the Elementals and Devas of the Land. Truly guided through My Highest Self in communication with so many Beautiful Beings.
Thank You All for your Love and Support!
Finally, picking up a few more bits of glass and trash in the immediate area as I prepare to leave…
I then announced that I was Complete…
and it was 12:55 pm.
