As a medicine woman, I often communicate and understand the language of my elders through ritual. It is through the smoke and the ashes that messages from above show us the path to our ascension.
When a Shaman opens their mesa it is representing the opening of the light body of the Shaman. A mesa is a deep expression of nature. The sacred stones form a rich tapestry connecting one to pachamama, mother earth. The communion with the Mesa is the energetic body of the shaman and the spirit world. A true Mesa Carrier can acknowledge the power (its capacity to hold energy) of the transmission and experiential growth within the sacredness the Mesa offers a Shaman.
