Today on the New Moon, my Water Ceremonies were several…. they began by gathering the Waters which have been keep Sacred on my altars. The Triad of trees in my own yard were the first recipients of the Sacred Water.
The Apple is the oldest and was one tree with three trunks standing vertical though hollowed out by time and weather. The winds now have the last one laying and still sprouting branches which offer apples as a testimony to the strength of nature’s rooted beings.
Next was the Birch being the Sacred Tree which called me to live here many years ago. When the leaves are full you can see the shape of the Kokopelli playing his flute. If you listen very carefully you will feel it in your heart.
Grandmother Maple, whose roots dwell in the runoff area of an underground stream that flows to the river. A part of the original farmland as watering for the pasture animals. The changes of the landscape by settlers and now the oversized homes of the wealthy fortunately have not deterred the Water from Her sacred journey, just diverting it a bit.
Across what was a dirt road when I came here, my neighbor who lives on the shore of the Agamenticus River (York River) tells me that in her yard this tree with six trunks is over 250 years old. It is well rooted on the high bank carved by thousands of years of Water flowing both to and from the River to the Atlantic Ocean for it is tidal here.
Honoring the ancestors of the land I use the name Agamenticus and always offer my ceremony here to those who knew the Land and Water in a much deeper communal living relationship.
Now down to the Blue Fish bottle after blessing all the Trees on my way to this special shoreline, it rests there upon the rocks as I offer ceremony to the River Herself. Pouring the remaining Blessed Water, the winds actually stopped while the words of sacredness flowed from within the Waters of my Heart. Not just to the Water but all the Elementals which have been witness to the many changes over hundreds of years and yet continue to invite us as humans to listen to their wisdom.
Bless You All from the Hearts of those of us who honor the Sacredness of Water and offer ceremonies in accordance with the cycles of the Moon.
I Love You I Thank You I Respect You I Am You You Are Me We Are Unity ~Riverman
Called by Spirit to the top of Mt Agamenticus and offering a ceremony of Love and Gratitude to the Waters for All.
Water in all forms
has a living presence
We are also that Water
within our form
Every molecule of Water within us
is an ancient traveler
It is in liquidity
that all transformation is seeded
The intention of transformation
As we return to our liquidity
before entering back into form
Let us honor our liquidity
and flow without hesitation
around all obstacles
In order to nourish and fulfill
All that we call life in form
Every form embraces Water molecules
as a part of its journey through time and space
From the opening of Our Hearts
to the embracing of Water in all forms
It is the call that every human is now hearing
In order to receive and accept
its perfect balance once again

Thank you Great Creator for your Gracious Presence.
May you for always hear us in the moments of our despair.
Today We come to ask for the restoration of our magnificence both individually and collectively as We move forward on our evolutionary path.
Each one of us are questioning everything seeking wise guidance and the proper tools that will assist us in following your guidance
Let it be We who bring restoration to a new level of meaningfulness wherein Peace, Light and Love flow in a better balance and harmony
May it be the co-creative restorative process that inspires others into seeking moments of positive action for all life forms whether We understand them as living or not.
Let Restoration begin within our own living presence opening the passageways for Inner Joy to become manifest and offered with Love to All.
May We Lead from within our hearts to help renew all of our commitments with the re-balancing of all that has become unstable both within and around us globally
As the restoration process removes the distortion and scarring of centuries within ourselves Let us also reach out to all children as leaders
Showing them how restoration is more than just a healing of our present wounds it is also an awakening to what is needed in their future.
So Together Today We Ask for renewal and strength within ourselves We Ask for a better understanding of the qualities of leadership – both ours and others We ask for encouragement and inspiration for all future generations.
In order that we correct the errors and heal the wounds of the past Renewing our commitment to live in a more Unified Future of Humanity.
Right Now is the most precious moment that can ever exist. Especially when it comes to our self-care and nourishment.
It is why We show up together in this moment of heart resonance, We are One breath, One heartbeat, One Love.
The Morning Fire we co-create reminds us that every movement we make relies on our ability to overcome or move around all obstacles.
It is the very moment that we have a brand-new opportunity to change our thoughts, our behavior, or the direction in which we flow. Feel your heart beating and know the Sacred Flame within you cannot be stopped.
Its Divine Origin is never ceasing to communicate to and through you.
Allow today’s Fire to burn away all that is keeping you from being who you truly are.
Each one of us is always rising like the flames we gather around which have no regard for minutes or years.
We are continually moving into the next moment to remember who we truly are within ourselves.
To come home into Our Divine Presence, which Our Ancestors still speak of, by knowing and honoring our True Self first.
Once again, creating harmony and balance together as Our Return to Innocence.
May each of your thoughts and desires for a new year align with who you indeed are. Beyond time and space, and Beyond what is happening to you or around you.
May We All come to deeply know how precious and powerful We are in that most fragile state of innocence.
