It was at Winter Solstice 2014 that Isa came my way. In the turmoil of changes She came to me with the message to sit and be still.
Be still and listen, Listen and feel. No plans, no solutions, just sit and be still.
It was at night before falling asleep that She invited me to come and stand on the Ice with Her experiencing spaciousness, feeling clarity and noticing under the Ice some soft rippling of the Waters, deep down below.
She helped me to slow down, to wait and watch things appear instead of pushing them into form. She helped me to wait for things to be ripened and ready to harvest or to let die. She helped me to stand strong in all this waiting and to always find my way back to the Center, the Center of my life, the Center of the Wheel of Life and Death.
But ISA is more than Ice only.
For me ISA is also representing the Völva, the staff carrying wise woman of the North.

WOMAN WITH THE DRUM – In the Beginning She was….

It was not until 2017 that I would meet the Drum of the North. A Drum made the Northern European way by Drum Maker Michelle Meister (Portland, OR, USA)
In the meantime Bees flew into my life teaching me the sacred alchemy of transmuting nectar into honey, trasforming the heavy metals of life into gold.
Teaching me about the life in the hive and about life as a solitary bee.
Society and individuality and the healthy dynamic between the two.
And the Wheel is turning and I’m turning with it. I’m called to do ancestor work, creating my family tree and weaving the tapestry of my family by adding the stories to it.
For my Ancestors of the North Ancestor reverence was very important and family history and genealogy was seen as a sacred task.
