As a 1st presentation, a gift, a support and perhaps an inspiration I felt like sharing with you a few poems written in the 1st decade of the 3rd millennium. Each heart beat connects me to Mother Earth’s heartbeat, Each step connects me to her multilayered body, Each time I offer her my joy, love and gratitude, She rejoices and nurtures me back. Each breath connects me to the Winds, To the Air, to Spirit and to the Universe. Each thought is connected to others’ thoughts, Each feeling is connected to others’ feelings, Each life form is connected to all life forms, On Earth as in the whole Universe. Through the connecting web of life Nothing exists in isolation. Each In Celtic shamanism Each is the totemic horse representing : The Goddess, The Land, Journey and life’s cycles. ------------ i am no one and i am everyone, i am nothing and i am everything… Joy of The Heavens and pain of the Earth. The light and shadow, the deep and hollow, moving, vibrant, bright; soft, soothing and quiet. A hope and a dream beyond what it seems… ------------- Sisters of all faith, color, age meet up, gather up and exchange your stories, wisdom or outrage… We can create and inspire change ! We are the nourishers and carers, loving and protective life givers. It is time to reclaim your power, to blossom like a scented flower offering your strength, skills, light and gifts to the whole world screaming for the shifts ! ------------ i am light, i am love, i am life i am the tool of my own destiny i am the instrument of The Divine expressing its limitless creativity. i am the Consciousness aware of its existence i am the unconditional love which unites and nurtures all i am the life force striving to expand and fulfill its potentials i am the light embracing its shadow on its journey to shine upon the Universe. i am ------------ May the light come out of darkness May the truth uncover the lies May wisdom shatter ignorance ! May hopes summon and tame fears May harmony subdue conflicts May the essential be valued! May love and gratitude spread out May freedom and respect inspire May we restore balance on Earth ! May real actions replace mere words May beauty unveil mystery May we give life to our best dream ! ------------ Like flowers humans were born to blossom, to illuminate the world with many colors, and perfume it with many enchanting scents. Like birds humans were born to learn to fly, to open their wings and freely rise, to dance with Spirit and sing the song of life. Like stones humans were born to collect energy, nurture and be nurtured by Mother Earth, to heal and remember how to live in harmony. Like Water humans were born to flow, to purify, to intuit, to feel and extend our senses, and to give life to life with all its possibilities. Like Fire humans were born to transmute, to kindle and love the fire within and without allowing our life force and spontaneity to spark. Like the Earth humans were born to connect, to manifest and embody life, to transform and grow in balance with the whole, in beauty and in reciprocity. Like the Air humans were born to change form and move forward joining the Universe's breath, to express Spirit: being light, creative and free. Like the Ether humans were born to exalt, to transport, to transcend and to radiate the magnificence of greatness and wholeness. Like Spirit humans were born to love unconditionally, to shine, to expand and co-create in oneness celebrating life and its joy in a tender embrace. ----------------- Let’s be free, free to feel what we feel, to say what we think and feel, to question what we don’t understand or accept ! Let’s be free to ask for and manifest what we deeply need ! Free to share the best we have, to give and receive... Let’s be free to love unconditionally ourselves and others. Free to use and expand our potential and qualities, our light and our gifts ! Let’s be free to be who we were born to be ! Let’s be free to dream a new reality into being ! Let’s be free to surrender to the wonders of life and life itself ! Let’s be free ----------------- Love and light is the essence, the medium and the aim of life. In the formless darkness of the Void, i received infinite love and praise. i attuned with the eternal, all encompassing, peace and harmony, joy and boundlessness of being an expression of, and inside the Original Source of all Creation, Great Mystery, the Void of all that is. From the Void i came, to the Void I’ll return, Home. The Void is full of all potentialities, of all we are heading towards on our spiritual journey. All was filled with unconditional love and compassion, beauty and harmony, balance and limitless potency: a place beyond form, beyond time and beyond words. All aspects of Creation that have existed, exist and will exist, are in the Void without form. Finding The Void within is being full, is being whole, is being one with all. The Void ----------------- At times, I am a joyful and ingenuous, a spontaneous, wild and free child. At times, I am a loving, compassionate and caring mother, a nourisher and a fearless protectress. At times, I am a wise and sharp, strong and powerful old crone. What about you ? Ninna Gay, Shifts : Beyond the Visible, 2010 For many years in my personal quest for the highest meaning I can give to my life, the best use of my skills as well as what I learnt on the spiritual and shamanic path (over 20 years), I had the vision of sharing with like minded brothers and sisters / kindred spirits, in order to co-create a place of healing, creativity, evolution, learning, sharing and joy in a natural, well looked after and loved environment. Over the last 20 years I was drawn to and had recurrent visions of living in the forest. I have dearly loved trees and forests all my life. Visiting, participating in ceremonies and living in Florestral made me feel I had found the people and the place I was looking for. On a practical note I would be happy to create : - different workshops (dance, creativity, shamanism often synchronized with astral and Mother Earth life’s cycles), - a medicinal plant garden, - as well as offer energy medicine’s individual sessions. I am also keen on organizing/help to organize women gatherings, as I enjoyed and benefited so much joining for 5 years two different women circles & teachings. In my initial vision I also imagined punctually inviting other people I know, love and appreciate the work to co-create workshops with them, or just facilitate theirs (yoga, chi gong, meditation, shamanism etc.). So Ideally would like to build one or 2 small houses (1 for me, one to rent for incomes, guests, friends or family visiting), as well as a construction for workshops, meditation and healing sessions. I speak French, English and Spanish, so can also support the community for interpreter/translation needs. I did some in Ireland as well as teaching French for 20 years as a foreign language. To earn my bread I have been guiding for 25 years mainly in Ireland (where I lived 20 years) as well as Northern Ireland punctually, lately also in Scotland, Wales and England. I would also be happy to participate in and help with ceremonies, singing, preparation & activities for retreats as well as gardening in Florestral (have learnt some of the principles of permaculture and have always been very drawn to ecology, plants & natural medicines). I also like manual work, do odd jobs, and know how to plaster and paint. As a Photographer, did several exhibitions, a peace and reconciliation photojournalistic project in Northern Ireland called Journey to Wholeness (1998), and a book called Shifts: Beyond the Visible (2010) where I share photographs of the invisible world I sometimes happened to catch, with some of the things I learnt on my personal healing journey, spiritual quest & shamanic path learning. Creativity, music, dance, arts and nature are an essential source of inspiration, joy, beauty and enthusiasm in my life. Love and warm hearted blessings to all!
