White Buffalo Calf Woman Dying to the Old to Embrace the New

White Buffalo Calf Woman


Through Therese Dorer

Published Sedona Journal of Emergence June 2006

As I allow myself to become still, I am gifted with a vision of a prairie landscape with tall grasses blowing in the wind. Emerging from this landscape comes a shaft of light that glows and shimmers and finally rests just above the land. I then see a beautiful young native woman with raven black hair, as she emerges from the light and comes into form, I notice she sparkles and glistens and a glow emanates from her being. I then notice she transforms into a more mature woman with a face of wisdom and her hair has traces of grey. The final vision she gifts me is one of an old one wrinkled face and white hair. Each image is smiling and full of love and wisdom. She tells me she is White Buffalo Calf Woman.

Dearest rainbow children of the Earth, what a delight it is to speak to all of you this day. I wish to share with you today thoughts of wisdom, feelings of encouragement, and I wish to help you to seek the truth that is available for you in the internal universe of your beings. As your external world unfolds and you notice the continued dramas that are being played out by politicians, and heads of state, it is essential that you go forward on your journey with NO FEAR.

One of the most powerful ally’s you can align your whole being too, is the wisdom and magic of the Mother Earth. Through the eons of time indigenous people have found their wisdom and peace by trusting in their cosmic Mother Earth and allowing her beauty and peaceful knowing to penetrate them at the deepest level. In your world of technology and western thinking I suggest you have lost touch with your cosmic Mother and to help you come back to wholeness it would serve you well to be available to have a relationship with your original Mother.

Your body will return to her when you leave this incarnation and she is the life giver, of your food, air, water, earth and fire. The four essentials are earth, air, water and fire, these essential ingredients are what comprise you in physical form. So you are inexorably connected to the Mother Earth she is your primary Mother. To form a relationship with this amazing energy

I encourage you to go onto her belly and play, laugh, walk, cry, create and sing. I ask you to trust that she will always welcome you with the gift of a beautiful sunset, a song from her winged ones, a taste of the fairy realm through a beautiful flower. Being in present time with your cosmic Mother is one of the ways I suggest you can heal, grow, and blossom into your becoming.

I would like to speak to you about death this day. It is a good day to die! You may have heard this phrase said in jest, or in a more serious manner. Today I would like to ask you “what are you willing to die for, so that you may live”? How much of your life are you allowing to be siphoned off to fear, regrets, frustration, worry or guilt. I would like to suggest that each time you engage in this debilitating energy you loose a portion of your life force.

So I ask you, “Is today a good day to die?”

The ancients understood that our time on this earth was finite, a concept ignored and feared by most of the western way of thinking. Death in most of your cosmologies is feared hated and abhorred. But death is a part of your destiny; you are not going to walk upon the earth in this incarnation forever. To deny this fact is to deny yourself an opportunity to engage in the world to the fullness of your potential. For if death is the ultimate fear and every step you take is to avoid her, or deny her, are you fully engaged in your life?

I ask you to notice how death stalks you, what forms does it take to debilitate you from engaging in life to the fullest extent?

Are you afraid to grow old? Are you constantly worried about your financial situation? Is there a prevalent illness in your family that you are concerned about, and think that this disease may manifest in your body? Are you waiting to loose the last 10 pounds of body weight, before you can fully accept your body as beautiful and magnificent?

Are you willing to die to the old way of being the old way of engaging in the world? Are you ready to pay attention to what makes your heart sing, what delights you? By allowing this in your life you can move forward into the destiny you desire. The future is ready to unfold, so my suggestion is that you remember that you have a choice as to how you want to embrace your future. When you are full of heavy concerns and worries it is very difficult to accept the love from the Mother Earth, to appreciate her innate gifts that are yours to embrace. The more you clear your internal universe of this heavy dense energy you will find a lightness of your whole being, and how you engage in relationships, your careers, and your general well being will be greatly enhanced.

When you do make your journey home it will be much easier if you find yourself at peace with yourself, and your family, and all of your interactions in this incarnation. Imagine the delight to be able to walk to the other side of the veil with no regrets, a life well lived, clean and clear, feeling invisible and seamless and not leaving behind a bundle of grief and karma. By invisible I mean to shed the debilitating energies that keep you stuck in your critical thinking for self and others, the energy of judgment, anger, criticism, and self-recrimination.

Imagine that as a new little baby your first inward breath to fill your lungs was the first act as a human, this breath connected you to your spirit. Imagine your in breath is like your umbilical cord to you soul. Anytime you desire to be fully connected just intentionally breath a deep breath in and you are there. Your last breath as a human in this incarnation can be as sweet and clear to release you from this body and begin the journey home.

My suggestion to you is to know and trust that each morning you are given the opportunity to start anew, to die to the old and rebirth to the new day that stretches out to greet you. Just as you trust the sun will rise in the east it is important to trust you can enter each day with new vision. As the sun sets in the west allow yourself the gift to die to the day, letting go of this day as you prepare to greet the new day to come forward.

To help you achieve this peace I offer you a ritual to perform for self. Ritual is a powerful way to get out of your logical thinking and move into the realm of the mystical. To shift and change energy in the etheric is easier than to effect change in the dense energy of your realm. To affirm this I ask you to think of a place in your imagination. Your family home as a child, your school you attending as a teenager.

Notice how quickly you can transport your consciousness to this place. This is the gift of moving through space and time as quickly as you can think is as quickly as the energy can move in ritual.

Ritual to transfer energy:

This ritual is to help you transfer your doubt, worry, guilt, and all other fears from your body and give them to the Mother Earth she will accept them and transmute them back to wholeness. You will need a container, a shell, a basket, or some vessel to hold items. I then ask you to go onto the Mother Earth and begin to gather a stick, stone, seeds, or a feather, these items will be a part of your medicine bundle that you are going to release into your heavy dense energy back to the Mother. When you have collected these items, find some quiet time for self and bring the items one by one and with your breath release into the item your worry, quilt, anger all of your fears. Using your breath to release the charge of these energies that are holding you back from moving forward. Notice where in your body you feel the worry and focus on that and breathe it into the stone, or stick. Your body is not meant to be a vessel to hold these heavy dense energies and so it will respond with relief as you pay attention and discharge this toxic energy.

Then place all of the items that you have released into, your container, and wrap the container with cloth and bury it in the Mother Earth.

Please trust as you do this ceremony for self that you are supported and loved from all of us here. I then ask you to call upon the energy and strength of Mother Earth and Father Sky to fill you being with light, love, and truth. Extend your arms and breath deeply from the energy of earth, and sky and allow your whole being to be filled with this eternal unconditional love.

When you do this ceremony bring a gift for your Mother Earth, a gift of a song, a flower, some chocolate, sage or tobacco. This will conclude your reciprocity with your Mother Earth.

Dear Ones, I conclude my conversation with you by asking you to understand that although this ceremony may seem simple it is in the simple you will find the divine. Remember that all great ones who walked your earth began with humble beginnings. The sweetest most profound understandings can come to you in moments of quiet reverie by simply connecting to your breath you can be afforded the balance and harmony to get through your day with dignity and grace.

Spirit Guides to Discover:
June 2024



Over the years it has been my delight and honor to connect with hundreds of Spirit Guides for clients who trusted me to connect for them. I have been amazed and delighted at the wisdom that pours forth. Recently I have been musing about spiritual connections and how spirit can support us, with this in mind I asked Red Eagle a trusted ally in spirit the question below.

Red Eagle can you explain about Spirit Guides and how they support us here on the earth realm?

Red Eagle Speaks:

It is with delight I come forth this day to speak to you today. The connection between you and your spirit guides begins with your heart, and is a long standing relationship that you choose when you reincarnated upon earth. To offer up the services of being a guide is an honor and privilege, the advantage we have from this side of the veil is that we view the human experience from both sides of the story.

Whereas when you come to earth as a human you are limited by human experience and many of you have to search and trust to find your spiritual connections. We hold the energy for you as you make your way back to trusting in the divinity of your being on your life journey.
